The property was more than amply sized for the 3 adults and 2 (very active) children, and amazingly stocked with all we needed, and much more (we used the great BBQ most evenings). The views were stunning, and the sunsets from the decking were absolutely amazing each evening. We loved the bats each evening as they came out; they flew so close if you stood in the right place, that you could hear and feel their wing beats! My daughter was amazed! Monkeys played within sight and cane toads frequently crossed the patio area once the sun went down. House geckos and lizards were by the dozen, and we even had a few barbados leaf toed - thought to be extinct there until 3 years ago! You feel like you have escaped to your own private tree house, indeed many of our friends born and raised on the island were oblivious to the existence of the property. This is something of a rarity on an island so small and well traversed. Gillian, the owner, is lovely and completely accessible for any query- I am no good with technology and could not work Netflix- all resolved within a couple of hours. Unfortunately one of the air con units was on the blink and stopped the day after we arrived, we expected an uncomfortable night, but that afternoon it was serviced and repaired with a new circuit board, all with minimal fuss and intrusion to the holiday- an absolutely top class response and better than many previously from other rentals. Cannot fault any response from Gillian over the course of the holiday, or the property itself, it's a great place to go, already planning the return!

There was a buoy for snorkelling and lilos and a large sun shade which we found essential on the patio. The washing machine was a great addition - you won't find these in all rentals in Barbados. Lovely not to have a TV (he he!) but excellent wifi that stretches to the patio so the children were happy for down-time. 2 excellent bathrooms and really big bedrooms with plenty of storage and dozens of hangers! I know that everyone mentions it but the view from the lounge is simpler breath-taking. I really miss it!
