The villa is gorgeous, very spacious, with lovely size pool and garden area (the only thing that I would add personally is an outdoor seating area - they had an eight seater dining table but if you're spending your evening outside by the pool, would have been nice to have something comfier). They did have a lovely suite on the upstairs rear balcony, and 2 Muskoka chairs on the upstairs front balcony. Tons of room for our party of 9, and besides a very small hiccup on our arrival which was quickly resolved we had an awesome stay (Heather the house manager lives directly across the road, just in case of any emergencies/questions) and all communications with Bruce prior to and during our stay were answered promptly. Villa location was perfect, having been to Barbados on many previous occasions we knew the area very well. Villa offered two shortcuts to the beach, one to Gibbs Beach which is idyllic and the other to Mullins Beach which is busier, with lots of watersports on offer and water play area for kids. We never hired a car nor had to order many taxis, as we took either one of the short-cuts and jumped the bus into Holetown or Speightstown. Our favorite eats this visit where Ninos by the Sea (Speightown) Santi (next to Lone Star) great food, great location overlooking beach with sunbeds, Lone Star for special occasion dinner, and Bar Carizma (Holetown) for tapas night with entertainment. Didn't make it to Bombas Beach Bar (will save that one for the next visit). Highly recommend the villa to anyone thinking of enjoying the best of what Barbados has to offer, you won't regret it. The only thing I regret, is having to come home! Thanks Bruce and team for a wonderful stay :)

Ashanti Villas has everything you could want for the perfect island retreat. It is in the ‘place to be’ on the island and only a 500m walk from two of the most famous beaches, Gibbes and Mullins – there is a great beach bar at Mullins to spend lazy afternoons! The apartment is spotless and well looked after – it has a fully outfitted kitchen, a couple of balconies and three large ensuite bedrooms that are all air conditioned. There are private sun loungers and beach towels for trips to the each and a very comfortable sitting room with a television and dvd player if you need a time-out from the sun! Marcia, Karen and Caroline were lovely and always on hand to make sure we had everything we needed to make our trip as special as possible! Thank you so much
