Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Barbados - Ga Ga's

Ga Ga's is a 2 bedroom/2 bathroom holiday home which sleeps up to 4/5 people

Our stunning holiday home has been tastefully decorated throughout to give a relaxing and modern Caribbean feel.

It has two bedrooms, both with very comfortable Queen size beds with beautiful high quality furnishings and quality bed linen.

The Lime Bedroom is air conditioned, has a ceiling fan and has an en suite bathroom which includes a new walk in shower unit with 'rain shower' and a dressing area with ample wardrobe space. A new vanity sink unit with excellent lighting

There is a brand new (fitted July 2015) large fully equipped kitchen with everything you will need for your stay. New gas stove and appliances. The kitchen leads out to the stunning patio area which has been newly hand made with local Green Heart wood. Here you can dine al fresco and chill out at the very large dining table with 6 chairs. This dining area is under cover.

There is also a Weber BBQ (charcoal) for you to use.

There is a breakfast bar between the lounge and kitchen with 2 comfortable high stools.

The lounge offers class and comfort with two separate sitting areas and flat screen TV with UK TV Cable connection. There are two comfortable sofas, one of which converts to a Queen size sofa bed.

Children of all ages are very welcome. The house is a safe environment for them.

We have a large travel cot at the house for your use.

Why Lesley Anne chose Barbados

We have been holidaying in Barbados since 2001 and finally found our perfect little home in the perfect position!

A frequently asked question is why we have named this house 'Ga Ga's'.? My granddaughter calls me Ga Ga instead of Grandma and strangely enough she was born in South Africa and Ga Ga is Zulu for Grandma which none of us knew at the time!

What makes this house unique

Ga Ga's is situated in Fitts Village where you will feel immersed in Barbados rather than being just 'another tourist'.

If you are looking for the real Barbados feel ... then look no further!

Beautiful home from home experience! Book it you won't regret it!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this gorgeous villa, it had everything we needed and more. Every detail was arranged perfectly by the owner Lesley from start to finish, from our airport transfers with taximan Robert to our welcome from the helpful Tanya to the lovely email on our return checking we had had a good time & arranging the return of our security deposit. Lesley deserves top marks for customer care.

The villa is in a lovely neighbourhood only a few minutes walk from the beach at Crystal Cove & the bus stops which can take you anywhere on the island for 2 Bds or $1US. It is very comfortable & has a well equipped kitchen, so whether you want to make a light snack or a full meal you will have everything you need to do so. The bedrooms are bright & airy with comfortable beds, air con & ensuite shower rooms with plenty of storage for a long stay. The property has reliable wifi & a TV with plenty of channels to keep you amused if you fancy an evening at home. There is a very handy laundry room at the side of the house with a large top loading washing machine & dryer which we made good use of so no need to go home with a case of dirty clothes. The outside deck area is a beautiful place to have your breakfast or read a book in the shade but if you prefer a bit of sun the garden is large enough to always find a sunny spot to relax in. There is a really handy outside shower to rinse off the remnants of a day at the beach. The neighbours are all very friendly and will always say hello to you, the only neighbours we weren't so keen on were the cockerels that seemed to crow day & night. If you are a light sleeper I would recommend taking some earplugs & you will be fine.

All in all, Gaga's is a beautiful place to stay with plenty of home comforts & very conveniently situated between Bridgetown & Holetown for all your shopping & dining needs. Therefore I wouldn't hesitate in recommending it to others. Book it, you won't regret it!

...just perfect!!

  • 5 of 5

We recently returned from our second stay at Ga Ga's and enjoyed it just as much as the first time in 2015.

Lesley had fitted a brand new kitchen this year, although not much cooking was done as there are so many lovely restaurants nearby that you have to go and try.

Ga Ga's is a good base to explore the West coast using the unique Reggae buses to hop on and off. However, a car is recommended if you want to travel further afield.

Lesley has a recommended list of car hire to use, good places to visit and restaurants to choose from, so you're never stuck for things to do.

We love Barbados and will be returning! Of course, we will choose Ga Ga's every time!!

Owner's Response: Thankyou. The new kitchen at GaGa's was fitted during the summer last year and has a new gas stove and all new fittings. We have also fitted new sink and vanity units in both of the bathrooms. So pleased to hear that you enjoyed your second stay at GaGa's.

Great family holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Ga Ga's for a week from the 11th February 2016 and what an amazing experience it was.

From the planning stages up to the end of our stay nothing was too much for Lesley. She was really responsive on all the questions we had and her knowledge of the island is second to none. She had great recommendations in terms of places to see and where to eat.

The description of the property and area was spot on. The villa is located within a 5 min walk from the nearest beach, however a car does come recommended to explore the island and drive to even better beaches which are all within a 10-15 min drive.

The property itself comes well equipped with all the necessities and is definitely spacious enough. The neighbours are also very friendly.

We found the beach by Santi restaurant the best of them all, with a well protected area for the wind, as well as the best sunbeds to rent at a decent rate. We experienced snorkelling with turtles directly from the beach which meant we returned on almost a daily basis.

I highly recommend Ga Ga's and we would definitely return in the future.

Very homely accommodation

  • 5 of 5

We have recently returned from a 3 week stay at 'Ga ga's' which turned out to be one of our most enjoyable holidays ever!

The property is well designed, had everything we needed and had a lovely 'homely' feel to it. We spent many happy evenings on the decking area enjoying bbq's and playing cards! Both beds were large and very comfortable and I made good use of the ample supply of coat hangers in the spacious wardrobe.

'Ga ga's' is located just a couple of minutes from the beach so you don't have to walk far when you're in need of those well deserved lazy days sunbathing and paddling in the sea. However, the property is also well situated on the west coast for good access to other beaches via regular reggae buses.

Lesley, the owner, provided us with plenty of information about the local area including places to visit, phone numbers for taxi's, etc. and good restaurants (which we put to good use!).

Jordan's is the local supermarket which is about a 10 minute walk away but a short bus ride takes you into Holetown which has more shops to browse.

Everyone we met was so friendly and welcoming it reminded us of how England used to be 40 years ago!

We wouldn't hesitate to recommend 'Ga ga's' to anyone, families, couples or singletons. The area has something for everyone!

Already looking forward to our next visit!

Wonderful stay-perfect for our little family

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful stay-the villa was a real home from home with everything we could possibly need.

Our little boy loved playing on the decking and watching the birds and lizards.

Great location-couldn't have asked for more.

Looking forward to coming back!

Crystal Cove, Fitts Village
Car: not necessary

Ga Ga's is situated in friendly Fitts Village on the fabulous West coast. The house is nestled in a very quiet cul de sac just behind the coastal beach road where you can experience local friendly village life. Although a car is not necessary as local buses to all parts of the island are easily accessible you may find a car useful to see more of beautiful Barbados.

Jordans supermarket is with a 10-15 minute walk or a short 2 minute drive. Il Tempio restaurant is opposite Jordans supermarket. Bus stops are situated directly at the bottom of our street on the main beach road where you can easily hop on a bus and be in Bridgetown within 15 minutes and Holetown in 5 minutes.

Wendy's Bar is within a 5 minute walk.

Paynes Bay is a short ride away where you will find a small fish market. Your fresh fish for the BBQ can be bought from here.

There is a petrol garage with a large grocery shop open all hours, inside you will find an ATM.

Also in Paynes Bay you will find another beautiful wide beach and a number of good restaurants. Daphnes, Scarlets, The Roti Hut and Mr Vics are all in this lovely area not far from Ga Ga's.

Holetown is just a short 7 minute drive away where you can enjoy tax free shopping or browse in the local Chattel Village shops as well as stocking up at the large supermarket there. Holetown has a large selection of excellent restaurants and bars at all price levels and opportunities to experience beach side dining. Banks and ATM machines can also be found in Holetown. The world renowned 'The Cliff' restaurant is within walking distance of the house and you also have Il Tempio Italian restaurant and Wendys local bar.

Crystal Cove beach is within an easy 3 minute walk away from Ga Ga's where you will find soft white sand and calm seas. Jet skiing and boat trips can also be taken from the beach here to see the famous sea turtles.
