Why Timothy Boyce chose Saint Lawrence Gap
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...

Great house in an excellent location. Able to walk to the gap for many excellent restaurant choices.
Enjoyable place to stay!
We were pleased with the villa particularly the outside space. Amazing views and we enjoyed an early breakfast on the deck overlooking the sea. Lovely way to start the day. Always something to see with small fishermen leaving close to the villa and returning with their catch. About 15 Restaurants are within a 1-5 minute walk and we enjoyed many excellent meals within a short walk of the villa. The facilities at the villa were good but could do with some updating. The noise from the traffic and local area initially was a little off putting but we realised Barbados is a noisy place to visit and we mellowed as the days passed and were less bothered by it!
We had a very enjoyable few hours with Turtle Mike who collected us from outside the villa and took great care of us as he brought us to swim with the turtles and snorkel at the shipwrecks. As a family with teenagers we all thought this trip was the highlight of our holiday. Thanks Mike
Also thanks to Timothy who was there if needed!
Thanks for some great memories. I’m writing this sitting at the airport waiting to go home and wondering if we would be lucky enough to spend some time here again in the future!!!
great location with all the amenities we needed!
It’s the combination of the Historic Property , the Geography of the Area and the beautiful Beach that is lit at nights by the lights of the Restaurants’ thus making it ideal for bathing Day or night!
Million Dollar view!
Our family greatly enjoyed our stay at Villa Jarrow! We were a family of 4, with 3 adults and one 11 year old. Several more people could easily be comfortable in this villa. Communication with Tim was great from the very start and continued all throughout our visit. He arranged transportation for us from the airport, which was a huge relief traveling to unfamiliar territory. He then gave us a complete tour of the house and dropped us off for groceries. He also connected us with “Turtle Man” Mike, who took us out on a wonderful day of snorkeling with turtles! The house itself is quaint and full of character. We loved being able to have the house open and hear the waves crash 24/7. The area tends to be very loud at night with music blaring from the night clubs in the Gap. You can hear it best in the bedroom closest to the water, but the stone walls, fans, and A/C drowned it out in the other bedrooms. But please be aware if you are a light sleeper or bothered by loud music. If you are looking for upscale, 5 star accommodations—this is not it. But if you are looking for a comfortable home with a million-dollar view and a convenient location, you have found it! We were very happy with our choice to stay in St. Lawrence Gap with so many restaurants within walking distance. We also traveled around the entire island with a rental car from this location with no problem. Don’t miss Bathsheba and Animal Flower Cave! They were 2 great highlights of our trip. Book Villa Jarrow now! You won’t be disappointed!
We loved this villa!!!
Definitely recommend this property! Can’t say how many times we've said out loud how much we loved this villa. The property shows its original charm yet has been restored beautifully.
Tim was a gracious host and great communicator not only during the booking process but throughout our entire stay. He arranged airport transfers and greeted us with local rum punch.
The location of this villa is perfect for those that like to walk and explore. We had no need to rent a car. We walked to several nearby restaurants, bars, and beaches where we could lay out, swim, and order food and drinks on the beach. There was no shortage of entertainment within minutes of the house.
What we loved the most was sitting outside on the patio and admiring the gorgeous ocean view. We saw turtles and sting rays from the deck every day. You can also see the ocean view from inside the house and hear the waves crash which was very relaxing. Lastly, the steps outside the entrance of the Gap, overlooking the bay was a beautiful place to watch the sunset and take photos. We will definitely be back!
What a great vacation we had staying at Villa Jarrow! Mr. Boyce met us there upon arrival and to show us around the Villa. He had a bottle of Rum Punch waiting for us, which was very thoughtful! Very nice man! To top that off, I celebrated my birthday there and Mr. BOYCE gave me a bottle of wine with a Cake and also a Barbados beach towel. He introduced us to the Turtle Man/Mike, which was very nice and took us out to swim with the turtles and fishing! Great time exploring beaches and sightseeing in the boat! Definitely a good guy! I would recommend the Villa to everyone! We will definitely be looking forward to another stay! Book early because the Villa stays booked most of the time. Also, I can’t forget Ms Rose, the-house keeper. She is the sweetest lady!
