A superb villa in a quiet location, an ideal base to explore Barbados

5 of 5
We stayed for 14 nights from 2-16th March 2017, the pool & garden were well maintained and the house was well equipped providing cool boxes, picnic equipment, folding garden/beach chairs, lilos and much more. We thought it was a nice touch that the owner rang us a day or so after we arrived to check that we were happy and that we had settled in. The managing agent was available to contact 24/7 and gave us a warm welcome on arrival. We hired a car throughout our stay and this enabled us to explore all areas of the island that took our interest. Thank you Peter & Donna

My family of 7 adults had an exceptional time on our second visit to Cane House. We had such a good time on our first visit two years ago it was an easy decision to return for Christmas 2016. Since our first visit, there have been many improvements to the property notably a new covered patio with lighting, ceiling fans and comfortable furniture which made it possible to enjoy the outdoor space even in the hottest part of the day. We spent many memorable evenings out there lounging and/or entertaining family and friends. You’ll need a car on your stay at Cane House (rental or taxi), but if you’re up for walking, Half Moon Bay is a 15 minute walk to the north and Speightstown a bit further but well worth it. I highly recommend Fisherman’s Pub for great local food- try the fish cakes- and the best mauby on the island. If you’re grocery shopping in Speightstown and like me can’t resist fresh bread, stop in at PRC Bakery for the best bread and rolls around. If you’re planning a family vacation to Barbados and looking for a place where you can unpack, relax and truly feel at home, Cane House is the place. Special thanks to Roger, Simon and Avril. Once again you treated us like family; nothing was too much trouble and we truly appreciate it. Looking forward to seeing you again soon. Alleyne, DePeiza and Stanford Family Toronto, Canada

Great location and comfort galore

5 of 5
Just completed a truly wonderful stay at this spacious and comfortable home with beautiful garden.. The property description and photos are true to life...and the property is even more spacious than the photos suggest....the outdoor patio and dining area provide a superb space for relaxing and entertaining...and the three mainfloor bedrooms with large double beds were a real bonus.. The very private location in Holetown just five minutes walk from the beach and all amenities make this an ideal location for those who don't wish to rent a car for their stay. Highly recommend this property and hope to visit again.
