My husband and I rented this fantastic home for our one week get-away. We love Barbados and have rented other houses previously. We really enjoyed the quiet neighbourhood and were quite pleased with it's close proximity to both Speightstown and to the main highway that runs up the centre of the island. We do recommend renting a vehicle. We cannot say enough nice things about Joyce - the property manager - who welcomed us upon our arrival like we were visiting family! Joyce checked in on us via phone a couple of times during the week to ensure we were doing well and that everything was satisfactory (in fact everything was amazingly great!) and said not to hesitate to contact her should we need anything. The absence of air-conditioning wasn't an issue at all. Ceiling fans, portable fans and screened windows were more than enough to keep things at a comfortable temperature while enabling us to listen to the birds in the morning and whistling frogs in the evening. Making the arrangements and "doing business" with Jacqueline was easy and a pleasure! We had no problems with the Wifi and easily kept in touch with everyone back home. Loved the covered patio/deck and often ate outside, or just sat enjoying an evening beverage. We highly recommend this property and cannot wait to return, next time with the kids in tow!
Myself, my wife and four months old baby arrived at this beautiful home on January 1st for a week stay. The home is tastefully decorated and had everything we needed. There was also a baby playpen for sleeping and baby bath to bathe the baby. They provided everything we needed. Located in a quiet neighbourhood we could leave the doors open because the doors and windows all have window screens. We rented a car so we were able to explore the island. The beach was just about a two minutes drive but we also visited two other beaches that had beach bars that sold food and drinks.
The property manager was available at anytime but we never had to call her.
This is a very nice well kept house about 15 miles North of Bridgetown. If you don't mind being away from the action you will love this place. One drawback is no air conditioning but, they have several fans in the house to help keep things cool. I especially liked the patio and the visiting Gecko lizard, cute little fellow. When you stay here, remember you are in the Tropics and will need ear plugs to block out the crazy cockodoodledooing of the Roosters early in the morning, they start at 03:30 :(
Another nice aspect of this house is the washer and dryer access, no need to bring a lot of clothes, it will give you room for bringing souveniers back home.
The people of Barbados are the friendliest I have ever encountered. I certainly plan to go again!
We stayed at Maynards for a month in January-February, and the house was exactly right for our needs, well-equipped and comfortable and a real home away from home. We were concerned that the absence of AC might have been a problem, but it wasn't: the house was always kept at a nice temperature by the Trade Wind. We especially appreciated the enclosed garden which gave our grandson the opportunity to play safely outside and to carry out his daily inspection of the banana tree, and of course the wonderful patio where we enjoyed most of our meals. We also liked being in a "real" neighbourhood, rather than a tourist enclave. Joyce, the housekeeper, is a jewel and we so much enjoyed her visits and our chats with her. She was always able to answer questions and to deal efficiently with any small problems that arose.
I just got married and started a new position at work, so I was completely stressed and desperately needed some time away from everyone and everything to relax and breathe. This house provided me with the amenities of home and made me feel like I was home away from home. It was very comfortable for the 6 days I stayed there. Not only is the house immaculate and should be featured on HGTV Most Beautiful Vacation Homes, it was in a safe area close to 3 beaches. I was there with my cousin who was 4 months pregnant with her second child and needed some time away from husband and 3 year old, she was able to feel comfortable and relax and we both came back to the states refreshed and renewed. In addition, one of the many amenities this house has to offer is Magic Jack phone system which allowed us to call the U.S. without long distance charges. My cousin was able to talk to her husband and son everyday which also put her at ease. She was able to enjoy her time away with peace of mind. I highly recommend this vacation home and I am looking forward to going back next year!
My wife and I stayed here for our honeymoon in May 2011 and we thoroughly enjoyed this property. It's even nicer than the photos show. There was way too much space for us and plenty of room for 6 people. Everything is new and in immaculate condition. We bought groceries down the street in Speightstown and cooked here often since we found Barbados restaurants to be terribly overpriced and the food mediocre. The property owner, Jackie, and the caretaker, Joyce, were both very helpful.
The one downer was the location. Maynards is not so close to the action on Barbados, which some people might like. Heywoods Beach is a quick 5 minute drive away and is a nice spot to spend the day. But most everything is happening down in Bridgetown and St. Lawerence Gap. Maynards is a bit of a drive and the island's narrow roads and reckless local drivers don't make the journey pleasant.
