Platinum Coast Jewel
This is the 3rd time we have stayed in Ian's super 1 bedroom property. It is perfect for a short stay or like us for 4 weeks. The kitchen is fitted out excellently with every cooking utensil needed for home cooked dinners (restaurants can be pricey). Only 15 steps to the pool and a short stroll to a beach. Easy 20 minute walk into Speightstown for groceries, pubs and restaurants (highly recommend Fisherman's pub for super and reasonable Bajan food and entertainment right on the water). The bus stop is only 1/2 block away and are super and cheap to get into Holetown or Bridgetown even to go around the island. The new deck has a luscious mango tree that provides shade and privacy during the heat of the day. The large deck with large patio table and chairs is where we ate ALL our meals and had many drinks with the collegiate British and Canadians who stay in Kings Beach Villas. The air conditioning is quiet and efficient in the bedroom which we used only at the beginning of the night as the Trade Winds are naturally cooling. Ian provides a plethora of information on his property so that nothing is amiss and his manager Andrea is always available by cell phone, text or e-mail. All in all a real gem. Back next year!
We have recently returned from our second stay at 16 Kings Beach Villas. It is a lovely villa, very well appointed and maintained. The kitchen is very well equipped, and the living room and bedroom are very comfortable. The villa is situated right next to the pool and has a choice of outside seating areas. The gardens are beautiful and tended daily. Very relaxing to just sit and watch the birds (including hummingbirds), lizards and even occasional monkey! When we have stayed (in August) the complex has been mostly quiet, and we were often the only ones poolside.
This really is my favourite location in Barbados. Kings Beach Villas are situated just south of Speightstown, within walking distance. We enjoyed walking up to Speightstown along the beach for a sundowner and supper. In the other direction, Holetown is a 10 minute drive (or bus ride!). The lovely beaches at Cobblers Cove, and Mullins and Gibbes are only a few minutes on foot. (Great snorkelling at the southern end of Gibbes Beach.)
Ian is extremely helpful and efficient with the booking process, and sent us lots of information ahead of our stay about the villa, directions, restaurants etc. He also assisted us with car hire, emailed during our stay to check everything was in order and that we were enjoying our time at KBV, and requested feedback if we felt anything needed improvement. We still can’t think of anything that needs improving!
Highlights of our visit this year were a visit to the enchanting Huntes Gardens, and a lunch cruise and sunset cruise with Shasa catamarans, an experience not to be missed.
We hope to return soon...
Bajan Gem on the West Coast
An excellent 1 bedroom villa on the platinum coast of Barbados for a long stay vacation. Within easy walking distance to Speightstown with a myriad of excellent restaurants, pubs, churches and local shopping. Not many tourist shops here but that is the attraction! This 450 sq. ft. villa is 5 steps to the lovely swimming pool on property with ample loungers. The property is very well maintained with super friendly gardeners, maintenance, security and cleaning staff. It is only a 5 minute walk to St. Peter's Bay a small but swimmable beach. Mullins Beach a 15 minute walk is more active with beach bar, restaurant and loungers and umbrellas for rent. The villa is very well maintained by the owner and the kitchen is fully equipped to prepare even the most sophisticated meal! Best part and very rare for the Caribbean is a dishwasher! New A/C is very quiet and efficient. The large patio out front is where we ate every meal for our 4 week stay as it is covered (for the rain showers) and has lovely views of the pool and vegetation. Hundreds of worldwide stations on the satellite allows you to keep in touch with news and sports from your home country of Canada, UK, or the USA. The owner is very hands on and responds within a day by e-mail to any questions we had during our stay. This truly is a gem of a vacation home!
Fantastic stay in great apartment set in lovely grounds in a fantastic location
The apartment is clean and comfortable with all the facilities you need to comfortably self cater. There are good eating out options nearby and the beach at Mullins is no more than ten minutes walk. Kings Beach has a really good pool and is kept immaculately clean and tidy. Would definitely recommend.
Close to beaches and quiet.
Worth coming back. Comfortable, well maintained facility. And one of the best "vacation" pools I have seen.
Peace and Tranquility
We stayed at Barbados Dreaming for a month this past winter and it was perfect for us (Canadian snowbirds). Kings Beach Village is a wonderful collection of multi-coloured chattel houses around one of the nicest (and least busy) pools I have ever seen. Many times I had the pool to myself for hours; many residents prefer to go to the beach, it seems. The Kings Beach Village gardens are lovely, very well-maintained and create a very relaxing environment for a holiday. There is 24/7 security for the village.
We found Barbados Dreaming to be exactly as depicted. It was well-stocked for long-term stays and was comfortable for two people. It would be a little crowded with more (although there is a sofa bed in the living room). The bed was particularly comfortable even though it was queen-sized and I am used to a king-sized. We only used the air conditioning in the bedroom at night (although there is an A/C unit in the living room) and it kept the bedroom wonderfully cool.
Ian, the owner, was easy to deal with and responded quickly. His on-site managers, Dave and Anita, were friendly, informative and readily available. I had trouble using the European-style oven (being from North America) but Dave came by promptly and showed me how to use it. We had weekly cleaning and linen changes which was very nice for a longer term vacation rental.
As others have said, the location is wonderful. It is between Holetown and Speightstown (closer to the latter) and about 100 yards up from the main coast road. As a result, it was very quiet and peaceful. We ate all of our meals on the front porch because we enjoyed the peaceful garden surroundings so much. We had a car but we probably could have done without one. There is a bus stop at the end of the street which takes you into Speightstown in five minutes and into Holetown in about fifteen minutes. I used the bus for most of my grocery shopping in Holetown. The beach is a 10 minute walk from the condo and, if you time the tides correctly, you can walk along the beach to Speightstown which I did a number of times. Mullins Beach is a 15 minute walk in the opposite direction and you can hire loungers and umbrellas. We enjoyed many sundowners at the Mullins Bay Beach Bar!
If you are looking for a peaceful vacation rental away from the busy traffic and noise that you sometimes find in Barbados (but still close enough to enjoy all that Barbados has to offer) Barbados Dreaming will be perfect for
Port St Charles and Mullins Beach are close at hand and sports enthusiasts will be happy to hear that both Sandy Lane and Royal Westmorland Golf courses along with the David Lloyd Tennis centre at sugar hill are a short drive away.
Why not treat yourself to a spa treatment in the 'Indulgence spa' which is within walking distance of the villa., or arrange a boat trip to feed the turtles or why not take in a little culture at the Bajan Roots and Rhythms which is a tribute in dance, song and spectacle of the musical heritage of Barbados and our neighbours, It's a Bajan buffet dinner, unlimited drinks, show and a fantastic party.
We are able to arrange a two centre holiday should your dates not be available, please ask for pricing.
Other Activities: Internet services available, also can be found free of charge in Speightstown library.
