Perfect spot by the beach

4 of 5
Very well equipped apartment, perfect for a couple or small family. We found everything we needed from the apartment, small supermarket was within a walking distance. The view is beautiful, so we stayed many evenings at the apartment and watched the sun go down. There's a busy road just in front of the house, so if you're a light sleeper this might bother you. On the other hand bus stops are only a few meters away, so you can easily take a bus to Bridgetown or to north of the island.

Fantastic Villa, Wonderful Service

5 of 5
Our family of 4 had a wonderful stay at GGV. The house is spacious and in immaculate condition. We spent most of our time outside in the beautiful garden and private pool. The house is about 5mins walk from the very quiet and beautiful Gibbs beach and about 10mins walk from Mullins beach. Monkeys visited the garden a couple of times when we were there which delighted everyone. The service from booking the villa through Maria, to the wonderful staff was first class throughout. Highly recommended. We hope to stay again in future.
