About Maxine

I work for central government in England. although I am not Bajan by origin, I love Barbados. The laid back environment and tranquil mood makes me feel rested within a day of arrival.

Maxine purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Maxine chose Saint Lawrence Gap

I viewed many holiday locations in Barbados and this was the best. Tranquil whilst accessible. Wake up to the call of numerous birds in the morning whilst being close to a very private, tranquil beach and the buzz of Oistins and nightlife of St Lawrence Gap - Charlie's pub is three minutes away - where you're transported from the Caribbean to Ireland. If this isn't your scene there are numerous locally owned bars nearby - the Surfers bar in Ostins is a definate must - good food with a lovely beachside view - you can want for nothing!

What makes this apartment unique

Tastefully furnished; fully equipped kitchen; indoor and outdoor dining facilities; off street parking; quiet location - close to amenties; pool; wireless internet; mobile phone; sattelite TV; surround sound music system; large garden; basket ball net; shared laundry room; accessibility to the whole Island - all at a cost you can afford - What else could you want from a home from home? 80% of our guests return!

Clean, private, and AWESOME!!!

  • 5 of 5

The villa was very clean and well taken care of. Krystal the cleaner came by 2 times during our stay and did a fabulous job tidying the villa while I worked on my computer. Unfortunately, my fun times in Barbados didn't allow me to meet the owners Maxine and Angela, but it was sweet that they checked on us and attempted to meet us. Oh my goodness! WE LOVED THE POOL! Good size, clean, and always warm. I would ABSOLUTELY stay at the villa again on another trip.

This villa is a must for anyone seeking simplicity, peace and tranquility with excellent service

  • 5 of 5

We have been to Barbados many times and usually stayed in a hotel. We decided this year however, to have a change and book this villa. It was all what we wanted and more. Perfectly situated for access to the beach, shopping areas and entertainment. The villa was perfect for us. The pool was an amazing asset. It was cleaned often and so was the villa. We met the owner Maxine whilst we were there and she is a lovely lady. It was really very nice to meet her and put a face to an email. The property manager Angela is perfect and she couldn't do enough for us. She came many tmes throughout our stay to check all was well, which it certainly was. A really beautiful character. The housekeeper Krystal was fantastic too. The most sweet and thorough lady. Whom we grew very fond of. The pool keeper was a gentleman called Doug whom I shared chats with. He was informative and helpful. On the whole, the management was absolutely first class. The villa had everything we needed, including a bbq in the gazebo which unfortunately we never used. It was a home from home situation. With everything you would expect to be in it. There was even a mobile telephone for us to use locally. The bedrooms were fully air-conditioned, I think it would be a huge asset to have it in the lounge too. This hasn't altered our option though. We had the most wonderful time. We would 100% recommend this property and we will stay at the villa the very next time we go to Barbados. Maxine, Angela, krystal and Doug, thank you for making our holiday memorable. Michelle and Vere. X

Enjoyable vacation in Barbados at Affinity Villas.

  • 4 of 5

Pool was nice, had it all to ourselves for the week. It,s a nice location, close to the grocery and the beaches on the southern coast. Had some problems with the A/C and light switch but was quickly rectified the following day. The pool was attended to twice while there and the apartment was clean once by some very kind folks. A clothes dryer would be an asset. We enjoyed our stay and was quite comfortable. We don,t mind staying again some day.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Quiet location, off the main street. It's a short walk to the beach , the grocery store, and several restaurants. The swimming pool and gazebo allow for a quiet evening respite from the hustle and bustle of the day. We did yoga in the gazebo every morning.
