This was our first trip to Barbados and will not be our last. Our first 9 nights were spent at Phillip''s fantastic holiday home. Before the trip Phillip could not have been more helpful, answering all our questions promptly. His house manager, David, met us at the airport and we followed him to the house (you will need a car when staying here). The property was comfortable and well equipped. The upstairs balcony leading off two bedrooms was stunning, providing an incredible view of the Atlantic ocean from your bed. We hardly used the pool as we spent most days at one of a number of beaches (Crane and Miami being the most convenient on this side of the island). The airplane noise was not really an issue as the few flights that leave do so late afternoon, early evening. There is one night time flight, however if it woke us, we got straight back to sleep. Our second week was spent on the more commercial west coast and we were pleased we were able to enjoy two different sides of the Island.
