Great stay at Turtle View Barbados

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Turtleview it was a perfect location, just a short walk to the beach, and the bus route, Holetown was just a short 5 minute bus ride. The bus made it very easy to anywhere you want to go. The villa had everything we needed to enjoy our time, the beach chairs came in very handy, we took them to the beach every day. Thank you to Maureen and Tony they were very accessible when we called them for a few small problems and the tended to them right away. We would definitely rent this unit again.

Wonderful birthday week with family

  • 5 of 5

My sisters and I rented this townhome for our celebration of my 50th birthday in Barbados and we enjoyed it tremendously. We rented a car and had difficulty finding the unit but the friendly residents in Barbados offered to call Maureen and actually have us follow them to the unit. Maureen was very helpful in getting us keys and information on the unit. It was clean and well furnished. The location is great, with the beach just across the road which had rental chairs and umbrellas, the bus stop where we rode the yellow buses was within walking distance, great restaurants and food. The plunge pool was great to cool off. Our favorite restaurant was the Tides in Holetown which offered excellent food and service. Overall I don't think I can say anything bad, our time here was wizzo (fabulous).

wonderful property, amazing location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a lovely family holiday over christmas 2012. The villa lived up to the photos on the website and was beautiful and peaceful. The rooms were all clean and spacious and had everything we required. Ample towels for home and beach were provided. There were deckchairs to take to the beach which really came in handy. The location of the villa was a five minute walk to a stunning beach which we never tired of. Our children swam with turtles every day and the food at Ju Jus was perfect. Maureen was very helpful in providing groceries for our arrival and in answering questions. The only blip was the fact that we would have preferred more prompt and regular communication with the owner before our arrival - only to make us feel more comfortable that the booking was confirmed and the owner was reliable and bona fide. Booking over the internet can be a leap of faith and in this respect more assurance from the owner would have allayed all our unfounded fears. The property is amazing though - go and have a fabulous time!! Be aware there is a plunge pool though close to the back door which might make families with very small children nervous.

11 Fabulous Days

  • 5 of 5

Lovely accommodations, just like the pictures -- landscaping even more lush. Private & safe. It was super being able to simply cross street & snorkel on the best beach. Drove all over the island, did Harrison's Cave, Oistin's Friday Fry & enjoyed gorgeous mall in Holetown & luxury movie theater there. Security deposit was returned promptly the morning of our departure. Have traveleld the Caribbean & Hawaii numerous times & would definitely recommend this vacation home.

Would do it again in a heartbeat!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our weeklong stay at 10 Turtle View; more than relaxing it was a wonderful visit. The home is beautifully decorated, well maintained and very clean. The area is a safe and secure small gated community and a very close walk to a beautiful beach. The plunge pool and the community pool were perfect for a quick dip or lounging. No crowds here! Within walking distance down the beach to the Fairmount Hotel for a wonderful lunch, dinner or drink or more casual JuJus or the Lone Star restaurant were enjoyed. We had no difficulty obtaining our security deposit in full from Mr. Templeton. Thank you a great time!

Be informed that the owner of this rental is not honest and does not keep his word.My wife and i stayed there in July/August.We live in the states and sent $4500 for the month plus $300 deposit.He insisted we send the money by bank transfer which cost us about $100.The owner said he would repay us for the cost of the transfer when he return our deposit.Well it has been over 4 months and i have sent countless e mails to Mr.Templeton and he flat refuses to return my deposit.I did not want to write a negitive review but i have begged Mr. Templeton for months now to return our deposit to no avail so i though i would let everyone now what kind of man you are dealing with.

This review has nothing to do with the way we were treated at the Apt.The service was great and the caretaker was wonderful and very helpfull in every way.Just be aware of the fact that you could have a hard time getting your deposit back.

Owner's Response: Never once have I refused to return a deposit .It is true that administrative/banking gremlins interfered and delayed the return of Reggie's deposit.Thankfully all renters have looked after the house and I have never had to deduct any sum before returning deposits.
