Another fantastic holiday at Vida Mejor Villa

  • 5 of 5

We had another fantastic time in Carlton's villas.

We had both the West and East pool villas.

It was perfect for a family of 10. The villas are very spacious and accommodated us perfectly. Both are very well maintained and in immaculate condition.

They are situated in a quiet neighbourhood, but very hand for the beach, supermarket, bars and restaurants in Holetown.

We will definately be returning next year!

East Villa and Spa

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed three weeks at the East Pool Villa and Spa last August whilst on holiday and had a fantastic time! We have always stayed in Holetown as it has everything you need and we like the area very much. We have previously stayed in studio apartments and hotel apartments which have too been in ideal locations, but even though the latter has been situated right on the beach, we have still felt that there has been something missing. We came across Vida Mejor Villas through their website and were very impressed… the private pool being the main selling point for us and on arrival we were not disappointed… it was fantastic! With the added bonus of the spa too made it extra special. The accommodation was superb… clean, light, airy and spacious, but homely, every need is met with the added peace of mind of the properties being very safe and secure. I cannot recommend these villas highly enough! They are in a fantastic location with all amenities; shops, bank, supermarket, beach and bus stop just a couple of minutes’ walk away. We felt rest assured that if we ever needed anything that the owner Carlton would be at hand and help us with anything we needed, as too Peggy, who was also fantastic. Whilst we were on holiday it was my daughters 13th birthday and Carlton had organised for a big, beautiful birthday cake to be delivered on the day!! Which was a wonderful surprise and very thoughtful, and too which made the day that more special. Our highlight would have to be having your own home from home, in particular the computer with 24hr internet access, flat screen television etc. etc. But above all, having your own pool is amazing, and to which makes such a difference to the whole holiday experience. The property is maintained to a high standard and the exterior including pool is set within beautiful surroundings with ample sun loungers and barbeque. This is all within just a stone’s throw away from all you would expect from beautiful Barbados.

We have now found the dream!!! ……..thank you so much Carlton, and we look forward to seeing you in 2013 xx

Amazing Vacation - Villa, Island, Weather!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd trip to Barbados and 2nd time staying at this villa. We arrived for our 2 week vacation to have a beautiful bouquet of flowers and a card welcoming us back from Carlton, the owner. That should be enough to just fall in love with Barbados and this villa!! We absolutely LOVE the amenities, the location and of course Carlton, the owner. Keep in mind, Limegrove Lifestyle Centre (http://www.limegrove.com/exploreLG.php) is right around the corner from the Villas…. If you love to shop – all I can say is Oh My Gosh!!! You have Cartier, Michael Kors, Louis Vuitton… Heaven!! As a family of 4 (2 boys – 1 teen and 1 preteen), we love this villa and the room / space that we have. The open concept is phenomenal as we can be in the kitchen cooking and still talk to anyone in the family room, dining room, pool or on the computer. With the tropical trees and flowers surrounding the villa and pool area is gorgeous. It is so relaxing and truly confirms that you are on vacation! The green monkeys came to visit, which is another favorite of the villa. The monkeys come to grab the mangos and star fruit from the trees surrounding the villas. The maintenance of the house is great – Carlton is around if there is any issues, someone is cleaning the pool and having someone clean the villa every other day was so nice (as sand gets everywhere). Having laundry on site is also such a great amenity. We can't wait to go back next year - and hopefully with several family members!

Carlton - Thank you for all your accommodations and going over the top to ensure our vacation is memorable and perfect.

Barbados Overall - Island, Food, People

Anyone looking to go to Barbados for their first time - you will love it. The island locals are so friendly; the island is clean and has so many beautiful aspects. We went through the Harrison Caves and I highly recommend it. Also - any beach you are going to be amazed by the blue water and the beautiful fish! Those with families stay on the west side as the Atlantic side is very rough and can be unswimmable at times.

The Roti Hut is a MUST. They make AMAZING rotis and it is just south of the villa.

CAN HE BE TRUSTED? What a nightmare

  • 1 of 5

We had read the reviews of the four properties owned by Carlton and everything seemed fine BUT THIS WAS NOT THE CASE Two weeks before we were to leave for our holiday we received an email to say the accommodation had been DOUBLE BOOKED We were offered an alternative which was in a flat in a building on the beach. Carlton was very keen for us to move from his villa and at one stage even said we could cancel if we wanted! In the end he offered us a car for five days as the flat was not within walking distance of Holetown. Once we agreed to move to the other accommodation he then emailed again and said you can stay one night in the villa and then move to the apartment. This did not seem sensible and at that point I phoned his mobile in Barbados and spoke to him and he agreed to change his mind. Then a few days before we left he sent me a note of the balance due and wanted to charge for the Paypal fee he had occurred when we had paid on line. All this made us very nervous.

When we arrived he collected us from the port and took us to the apartment. This was indeed very high quality and overlooked the sea. However the wi fi did not work and this was an essential requirement as my husband had work to do on one of the days of our holiday. So Carlton then took us to his villa. We were very disappointed with the villa. It was nothing like the standard we had expected. The garden area was overlooked and the property next door had their radio blaring out the evening we were there and the following morning.I was so upset because of all this difficulty and all that Carlton seemed to want was for me to pay him the balance. He expected cash which this website advises against and I told him I had to pay him on line with Paypal. he then told me I had to pay these PayPal charges as well as the balance. I just wanted to get out of the villa and go to the apartment by the sea and I had had enough so I agreed to pay half of the car hire charges to get him to agree to take us there. THIS WAS BECOMING A NIGHTMARE. I also found that I paid more than half for the car.

We did not trust Carlton nor most of what he said. We eventually found out that we could have rented a one bedroom apartment in the block where we stayed for less than HALF what we had paid him. It was very poor value for us.

Owner's Response: This traveller did not stay at this villa!!! They were originally booked to stay for one week at our poolside villa but could not due to excess demand. They were offered and accepted alternative accommodation on the beach as our villas were all full. They overnighted at our West pool villa to use our wifi as the one at the beach accommodation was only working intermittently on arrival. We actually helped this traveller quite a lot going to great lengths to please them and paid more for the alternative accommodation for them than what they would have paid us but unfortunately it was not appreciated!!

Although we have been to Barbados several times before this was the first time we stayed at this villa. The description given is accurate and the location is as good as it says. if anything the photos fail to show how large the bedrooms are. Supermarket , garage shops and restaurants and bars are all within easy walking distance and bus stops are near also. We have seen many changes in Barbados over the years but the Surfside bar on the beach in holetown still cooks wonderful bajan fish cakes and is as friendly and relaxing as always.

Clinton is very informative and helpful and is justifably proud of the villas. i would recommend this villa.

  • 5 of 5

Our family really enjoyed our Summer Holiday at East Pool Villa. The Villa was ideally situated in Holetown only a short walk to all facilities including supermarket, bars and restuarants. Carlton showed us around the Villa when we arrived and was very helpfull during our stay. The Villa is well maintained and has everything you need for a perfect holiday experience. The outside space is good and the swimming pool and garden area is clean and well kept, same for the Villa thanks to Peggie the house keeper, who we all really liked. We would highly recommened this Villa to anyone wanting a good base in Barbados. We hope to return soon. Many thanks Carlton. The Ralls Family.

From the dining room, the living room and the kitchen you can see the pool. You walk out of the living room on to the semicircular entertainment patio which has tropical plants on both sides and then on to the pool deck. The entertainment patio is perfect for alfresco dining. The setting on the entertainment patio is unique. You have lush gardens on both sides with humming bird feeders. So when you are not directly in the sun on the pool deck , you can come on to the patio in the shade to read or even sit at the outside table with a beer, rum punch or whatever your heart fancies. Wild green monkeys actually visit some fruit trees close by on a daily basis. They don't come close to humans but can you observe them from the distance and be thrilled by a Barbadian wild life creature.All of our villas were designed by an architectural firm, who designed each one for total privacy i.e. individual separate entrances, separate parking, own pool and spa.
