Barbados stop over

  • 5 of 5

There were four of us and we loved our stay . Her home is comfortable. We had everything we needed for our stay. Doris was wonderful and her staff was extremely helpful. We were close to restaurants and ate at a little breakfast place twice at the end of the street! Must have breakfast there. We ate at Bubba's Sports Bar and had a tremendous dinner at Campers and were seated on the water. You must make reservations. Our wine steward was Rudolph, our waiter was Harold and Kindle was our hostess. Everyone in Barbados have been very helpful and accommodating.

Definitely the 'Sweet Life'

  • 5 of 5

The house is exactly as described. Every possible item you want in a home is available. The large washing machine and tumble dryer was fantastic to have. The garden is beautiful and well kept. It was lovely to sit outside for breakfast. The beds are comfortable, huge wardrobes, plenty hot water, the list of amenities is endless. The kitchen has every possible item and more you need, so you can save money on eating out.

Randal who looks after the house was available at any time, and he rang to check my family and I was ok. He was very helpful, and efficiently resolved a minor problem with the supply of hot water very quickly. He was lovely.

Check out the Country house Cafe at the top of Dayrells Court, absolutely delicious breakfast and lunch. Or try Shakers Restaurant, turn right at top of Dayrells Court, then 2nd left. To be honest the house is in such an ideal location that you are spoilt for choice for restaurants. The beach no more than 5-10 minutes walk, bank nearby with ATM, and bus stops in both direction nearby. Staying at Sweet Life made the holiday perfect.

Lastly the owner, Doris, was a pleasure to do business with. She was so generous and kind to my family and ever so helpful. I want to thank her wholeheartedly for making our trip very enjoyable.

Everything's Wonderful and More!

  • 5 of 5

This home is beautiful! Doris goes out of her way to make you feel like it is truly your home away from home! The kitchen is very well equipped and there are more than enough sheets and towels. The grounds are beautiful and well kept. The maintenance people are attentive and keep the place looking spectacular. We loved the clothesline and being able to open doors and windows to let the breeze pass through. We kept the bars closed, but in no way did we feel unsafe. we walked to Accra Beach every day. This home is in the perfect location with a few moments walk to the beach, stores and taxi stand. Also the bus is easy to access and there are lots of restaurants within walking distance. We hope to return! Thank you so very much Doris, for sharing your beautiful home with us! ~ Rosemary and Norm Wall
