Fantastic for a group vacation!
Great property. Plenty of accommodations and privacy. The highlight for us was the indoor/outdoor living space. It was spacious, airy and bug free. There always seemed to be a breeze and the pool was just steps away. The owner and the house manager were great. Natasha met us on our arrival and made us feel at home. She even cooked a meal for our group later in the week and it was fantastic! We would highly recommend this property.
Overall a very nice property very spacious and great location 7 mins comfortable walk to Mullins Ba
It was great for us with young children. Because the furnishings and decor were a little tired, we did not need to be too precious with the children ! However, if it were my property, I would definitely spend some money updating the kitchen, plates, glasses etc as this definitely lets the property down. Overall I think it was great value and we would definitely recommend for young family or larger groups
Lovely villa in a great location.
The villla is ideally located at the end of a quiet cul de sac and is surrounded by lush tropical vegetation. Green Monkeys visited us most days. Natasha was waiting to greet us on arrival and we were immediately impressed by the open plan living accommodation. Large Double glass doors open up to the pool and seating area giving a lovely sense of space. The pool area has been redone and the tiles are a big improvement and give a contemporary feel to the pool area. We were pleasantly surprised with the size of the pool too, another review called it a splash pool but it certainly was more than that in our opinion. The rooms are all a decent size, especially the master suite which is very spacious and tastefully decorated. The bathrooms are a good standard but we did have water pressure problems and the showers were just trickles most days! The layout really suited or family group as the teenagers were in the 2 bed cottage just across the pool area and so had some space of their own. The kitchen is the only reason I haven’t given Polomar gardens a 5 star review. Our family like to cook and the kitchen is very small and the appliances are old and dated. There’s a lack of workspace and over ar the cottage, only 2 hobs work and there was very little crockery etc. Thankfully there was a very good bbq. We used this the majority of nights we ate in. Natasha was very helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Our house keeper, Sante, came twice a week and did a great job. Would definitely recommend this villa and stay there again if the kitchen area could be improved. If you don’t cook much then don’t hesitate - I’m certain you will enjoy your stay. The biggest bonus being walking distance to Mullins beach and the stunning Gibes Beach. Adrian at Mullins is a very nice guy and would recommend asking for him for all your water sports needs. Thanks for an amazing holiday in my favourite place.
The property was very nice and spacious with great features including a pool, large balcony and lush greenery surrounding. The location is within walking distance to the beach and very near to restaurants and shopping. The house manager Natasha was friendly and accommodating. My husband and I along with our friends thoroughly enjoyed our time at the house.
A good choice
We were a party of two families, so five adults and five children. The property worked for us as we had the two separate buildings, so each family got some time to themselves and it was good to keep the children separate at bedtime so there wasn't any running up and down the landing ! The main house is smaller than you think it will be, but works as dining is outside and is a pleasant experience. The two houses were decorated adequately, with some lovely touches. The kitchen area was a squash if more than one person was trying to cook something, but only a minor issue. The cooking utensils need replacing and the fridge has a rusted side, which detract from the pleasing effect overall. But that said, the television and reasonably sized outdoor area kept the children occupied. The pool gets dirty quickly due to leaves from nearby trees as the wind was strong at all times. The pool suits small children, but is really an large splash pool, not actually suitable for adults to swim in, more splash about in. I liked the front porch away from the sun. We thought that the bin area at the entrance to the property needs tidying, and the meter cupboard door is rusted and swinging about. These small things spoil a first impression. Overall though we loved the property for its good fit for us as two related families and its location. The walk to the beach is about 10 minutes, but we did hear that the beach bar at Mullins was closing Feb 18, so there may be something swanky there soon. Buses very frequent, and Speightstown just five minutes in car or bus. Hugo's has opened on the waterside in Speightstown and although expensive, we thought it worth the extra dollars. The setting is lovely, but our favourite as always is the Fishpot, also up that way. The supermarket is now extended and just a 15 minute ride on the bus. Plus if you get a lot of shopping they will deliver, so thats worth knowing. Also the garage a 12 minute walk away has a 24/7 food shop, small but adequate for bread and milk etc., which helps. Don't leave fruit out in the kitchen, it will be pecked over very soon by incoming cheeky birds. Natasha came to clean during the week, and did a great job, she is very helpful and a really nice person. She organised the pool man to come and he did so instantly, it seemed !
Wonderful property in a perfect location
We rented Lucy’s property for a 2-week wedding / honeymoon / family holiday. 10 of us in total, we had all the room and space we needed. The houses are just up the hill, not more than a 10 minute walk from the lovely Mullins beach.
We would recommend the jetski posse on the beach and especially Sean who runs trips from there on his glass-bottomed boat; a local who ensures everyone has a great time!
The houses have lovely furniture and are well equipped, opening out beautifully towards each other across the pool and patio area..
Extended evenings around the large dining table outside on the patio will long remain in the memory..
The housekeeper Natasha came twice a week by agreement and tended to our needs.
Tranquil and yet so close to the beach and only a 10-minute drive from Speightstown.
Our wholehearted thanks to Lucy; we would dearly love to return..
Than you so much- really glad you enjoyed!!
Polomar Gardens is located in the beautiful parish of St Peter. It is less than 4 minute's walk from the famous Mullins Beach and Royal Westmoreland Club and Indulgence Spa. It is 5 minutes from Speighstown which is the 2nd oldest town in Barbados with a deeply rooted history. The jetty and pier are still present for one to enjoy fishing or a simple romantic walk! If you should choose not to walk to the north but rather take a ride along the west and south coast you can find your way into the many treats of Holetown and the Water Marine Park; Second Street, Holder's House, The City- Bridgetown, St Lawrence Gap and Oistins just to mention a few areas of interest.
