Why Timothy Boyce chose St Lawrence
Let our Previous guest answer this question: 2) The best vacation spot on the island! Left on 04/17/2014 for a stay in March 2014. This was our second time spending our vacation at Villa Jarrow and we could not have asked for anything more. The location, view and accommodations were just perfect. We saw many people walking by on the beach, looking at us with envy as we lounged or barbecued on the front balcony overlooking the ocean. In addition to the Villa being a great place to stay, the water out front was perfect for swimming. Clear blue and calm, with beautiful sand bars that we could walk or swim out to. We even saw a sea turtle swimming through the water on many of the days we sat out front. The location was the best! Despite driving around the whole island, and visiting several other parishes and beaches, we came to the conclusion that we still thought ours was the best of the bunch! We would definitely return again and have recommended Villa Jarrow to many of our friends already. Timothy was the best - he called to check in on us several times during the week always jolly and willing to help us out with any inquiries we had! He even drove us to the grocery store on the first day so we could stock up our kitchen for the week! Thanks Timothy for making our stay as amazing as it was! 37Nicola London, United Kingdom: What a view and turtles!!! ) You're not on the sea, you're in the sea...I keep the pictures of this place in my appointment book back home so I can day dream...' - Mr. Rousseau, Quebec, Canada 5) 'We had a glorious time here...

Thank you Tim for your hospitality! Your home was perfect! We loved meeting you and enjoyed touring your home with rum punch! The location was perfect to all the restaurants and bars in St. Lawrence Gap! The best of. Purse was waking up to the beautiful ocean view and hearing the waves crashing! We look forward to our next visit! Until then, Cheers!
Lori if your plane was on time our paths would not have crossed on this trip! However there are no accidents in life!! Things happen for a reason and maybe that reason was the lovely chat we all had after your long trip which was punctuated by an unforeseen circumstance!!!
Now you know where your Home is when you are back in Barbados!!!
Until we meet again do continue to enjoy 20:20 and blessings to you and family.
Absolutely fantastic experience from start to finish
We were greeted by Tim who had a bottle of rum punch waiting for us! The property is totally amazing - everything you need is taken care of but the star of the show is the balcony. Which actually juts out over the beach so the waves go under the decking! The sunset is the best time of day for enjoying t]hat amazing light over the Caribbean Sea. We also met Mike who has a boat moored outside the villa. He took us fishing, snorkelling and a trip up the west coast. I consider Tim and Mike friends and strongly encourage you to go and stay at this villa.
I spent more time with Jonathan and Richard than I have ever spent with any other guests as they were a "booking made while they were at the Airport"! That's a "Living in the Moment booking" and this sparked my curiosity!! Actually we had closed the property for a slight renovation and open up just to accommodate this unusual request!!!
Then when we met they just left it to the boat Captain MIKE and myself to plan their short stay!! The rest was lots of activity that saw us pack a two week package into 5 nights!!
We took a Boat trip along the West Coast and Fish on our way down !! We lost the only BITE we had and after we caught Nothing we swam ashore and visited the most conservative Hotel on the West Coast!
Then to create the contrast we lunched at one of the most popular Beach Bars five minutes away on the said Coast !!!
Then can you imagine , Jonathan and Richard and MIKE went back Fishing the Next Day and caught NOTHING!!!
But they snorkeled and swam with the Turtles!! MIKE really looked after their Water activity!!!
We finished their stay with a barbecue of "the Fish they did not catch" , on the Deck of the Villa , on a Moon Light night with the Boat Crew of Jonathan, Richard, Arden, Julia, the lady who Captained the Boat for the West Coast trip !!!
What a lovely 5 nights that culminated in us forming a watts Up group chat that will cement an everlasting friendship of the Boat Crew!!!!
Thats what we get when we live in the Moment!!!! This visit justified that Yesterday is History! Tomorrow is a Mystery!!!! And the moment , NOW, the PRESENT, is all there is!!! Yes we Opened the Present and found a lasting friendship inside!!!
Lets practice living in the Moment more often!!!!
Fun Week at Villa Jarrow
The pictures of the Villa give you a sense of the place but can not match the feeling of sitting on the deck with your coffee or rum punch and watching the waves roll in. It's almost like sitting in the water. Our host Tim met us at the Villa when we arrived and provided our first glass of rum punch and joined us for our first time on the deck - a great way to start a great vacation. Tim also hooked us up with Michael the Turtleman, who provided our family of 5 with an extraordinary boat trip that included snorkeling with the sea turtles and around some sunken ships. There are sea turtles in the harbor outside the Villa but we only saw them on our last day there so our boat trip was a great way to not only see the turtles but also see other parts of the area from the sea. There is a night club in the area that plays music late into the night, which made it noisy in the bedroom closest to the water. I slept in that room and found that ear plugs solved the problem for me. Otherwise Villa Jarrow was a great place for our vacation.
Thanks Mike for having your family join us at Xmas time !!
It was a pleasure chatting!!!
I do agree that the pictures cannot give a true description of the location for indeed the combination of the Victorian property and the Geography of the area combine to create that WOW that we get when guests open the Blue Gate to that Ocean View!!!
Since you were here at Xmas time there was a little extra noise as clubs were celebrating and competing for market share!
It’s more quiet after the Xmas festivities!!!!
Thanks for your kind comments and I know we will see you and family again!!!
Amazing just book!
An amazing stay in an amazing place with waves gently soothing us each night! The veranda is literally over the ocean truly magical. From the minute we arrived we were welcomed like close friends. Timothy greeted us with coconut rum and information about everything we could need. Big shout out to MC TURTLEMIKE who Timothy introduced us to. He has his boat in front of the house (literally!) and took us out fishing & swimming with turtles. We caught it and cooked it! Can't get better - it was so magical and for me it was the most beautiful house to meet up with my son. A monkey came and sat on the veranda!!!. We will be back and I can not recommend it enough it was truly magical! Cant wait to return. Marie & Ryan xxx
From the time Marie and I communicated via Email I felt her excitement and told her that! I am happy that we did not disappoint her! Thanks Marie for you kind comments !
I admired watching the bonding of you and Ryan and the inclusion of myself and Mike has created a lasting bond. I will follow Ryan's progress for indeed he is destined for excellence in any chosen endevour .
Mike Sends his Love and is still laughing at your comments re the fish you caught. You excitedly invited me with ; "we caught it and cooked it!!!!
You and Ryan joining the Villa Jarrow Family will certainly add value !!!
Happy New Year to you both!!
Awesome Villa with Beautiful View
Our family really enjoyed Villa Jarrow! It is beautifully decorated, well-furnished, very close to many good restaurants and right on the clear turquoise water beach! We loved our mornings there!! Coffee and breakfast on the porch, while sometimes watching the fisherman bring in a catch. We had plenty of room and a well-equipped kitchen. AC in bedrooms is a good plus. Roseanne, the housekeeper, does a stellar job!! And Timothy Boyce is a very good host! we think anyone would enjoy themselves here.
Being at the Villa creates a review like this! Its the combination of the Victorian Historic property and the Geography of the Area that creates the Holiday experience. Come, See and Believe!
My only complaint is the hot water. We basically took cold showers. There was a few evenings where we did have Luke warm water. I would still stay here again if/when I return to Barbados.
Not sure what happened here but would have made it right if Peggy had informed as we have an electrical switch in case of emergencies!!! Will have this checked out before our next guest. Thanks for informing us Peggy and we look forward to having you and friends back!!!! Have a great Xmas!!!
