About the property

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

The Coral Bedroom is also air conditioned and has a ceiling fan. This bedroom has a large new walk in shower with 'rain shower' head and a dressing area with ample wardrobe space. A new vanity sink unit with excellent lighting. A hairdryer is there for guests use.

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 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. The Living area also has 3 ceiling fans and two portable free standing fan to keep things cool. Ga Ga's also benefits from very high speed fibre internet connection.

We have also recently added a separate laundry room with an american style washer and dryer for guests use.

There is a garden for your relaxation and the property is in a very quiet position in a cul de sac with lovely sweet neighbours. There is an outside shower for your use after a day spent on the beach.

Ga Ga's is just a short 3 minute walk from the beautiful beach at Crystal Cove where you can relax on the stunning beach and swim in the calm Caribbean sea. You may even see a turtle or two!

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.

Ga Ga's is on one level and would suit people who have mobility problems although doors and gates are not wide enough for a wheel chair.

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!

Perfect holiday home

  • 5 of 5

We spend two weeks at GaGa's, booking months before we arrived we had many conversations with Lesley, nothing was too much in regards making our first family holiday a success from helping with the best flights, booking taxi pick up from airport, car hire, travel cot issues, places to eat & things to see & do.

We felt very welcomed from the start and meeting Tanya (Lesley's Barbados friend) at the house to run through things and give keys was like a home welcome, we even went to hers for a BBQ one evening.

I would advise getting a car to go off & see more of Barbados although we did spend a few days chilling at GaGa's listening to the Sonos system while looking out for the humming birds and lizards in the garden which is maintained by a friendly man called smiley.

The house itself has all that you would need to be self catered, comfy beds and sofa, we really loved our stay and was sad to leave including our two year old who even coming up a fortnight on still talks about the barbados house.

Highly recommend and we will book again if we came to Barbados another time.

Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful, beautiful villa. Gagas has been lovingly furnished with little touches as a reminder of the island. Perfectly situated, the nearest sandy beach is literally 3 minutes walk down the road and there are so many more to choose from. We hired a car which meant we could explore all around Barbados and a catamaran trip to swim with turtles is also a must. There are so many stunning restaurants to choose from, we literally ended up not cooking anything, but with the fully equipped kitchen and Weber BBQ you could do so, picking up fresh fish from the fish market down the road in Paynes Bay or food from the local supermarket, a 5 minute drive away. Lesley, the owner, can't do enough for you, the information she gives you pre-holiday ensures that you get the very best from your trip, especially for first timers to Barbados. I will definitely return one day.

Wonderful place to rest and relax in Barbados

  • 5 of 5

My family and I really enjoyed the place. It was close enough to the beach and the road to catch the local buses. It was really well equipped and we ate in a lot on this holiday - walking up to Paynes Bay to get fresh fish daily and barbecuing it. Jordans supermarket is walkable but it's just as easy to catch a bus up to Holetown. It was lovely having the veranda on the outside as even when it rained (unusual for December) we could sit outside. Lesley was attentive to all our needs and it's been an absolute pleasure staying at Ga Ga's.

Perfect location & perfect house

  • 5 of 5

Gaga's is a beautiful house in a lovely quiet local neighbourhood. Fitts village is the perfect place to relax and hang out with the locals but is minutes away on the (very frequent) bus to Holetown where there are more shops, bars, restaurants etc if you wanted. The beach which is at the bottom of the road is beautiful, unspoilt and quiet. Walking distance from Gaga's is Wendy's bar, amazing atmosphere, super friendly and cheap beers and food (macaroni pie is to die for!). Il Tempio on the beach (good for a drink watching the sunset in happy hour) and Jordan's supermarket (we walked along the beach in the day as the road is quite busy and pavements not all that great !)

Lesley is fantastic, there is nothing she can't do to help and advise, the perfect host. Her house is beautiful and comfortable and has everything you could ever need. Tania who looks after the house is also wonderful and very helpful and lovely. We had a brilliant day out with her and her husband on an island tour they run which was fantastic.

It was our first time to Barbados (definitely not our last) and it could not have been better. I 100% recommend Gaga's to everyone! Thank you x

Everything you need

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home with everything you need. Close to the beach and bus stops. Private, quiet and safe, what more could you ask for.

Everything was smooth from start to finish. Very friendly owner and manager which made you feel welcome from the time you arrive to the time you left.

I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to anybody looking for a nice rental on the West Coast.

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!

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.
