Well appointed villa.

  • 5 of 5

Turtles was a great choice for our first extended visit to beautiful Barbados. The villa is very spacious with pretty much everything you need and is a few minutes from the beach. We spent most of our waking hours on the terrace which is a wonderful spot to relax or dine. It is in a quiet and safe neighbourhood and the locals are friendly and helpful.

The house is very well appointed with many features which gives it a personal feel and there is a great selection of books and dvds.

We didn’t bother with a car and relied on the local bus services for trips into Bridgetown, Oistins and Holetown where there is a large supermarket and stocks everything you could possibly need. There are several good quality restaurants and bars close by and would suggest a Sunday evening trip into Holetown for a great experience.

Steve and Gill are very good to deal with and made the whole process so easy. I would certainly recommend this villa to friends and relatives.

Another great holiday at Turtles

  • 5 of 5

This was a return trip to Turtles and it was just as good as last year. We had a relaxing time enjoying the beaches and sunshine. Can not think of a better way to spend January.

The villa is well equipped and is very clean and comfortable.

The veranda is lovely to relax with a cocktail in the evening and with two fans keep you cool.

Would definitely return.

Fabulous Stay

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Turtles.

It has everything you'll need for an outstanding vacation.

The neighbours were extremely pleasant and friendly.

On our last day we shared breakfast with a family of 7 monkeys!

Very short walk to the beach for some of the best swimming and snorkeling conditions on the island.

Thank you Gill and Steve and for responding so quickly to any questions we had.

Already planning next years return!

Great holiday in your beautiful villa

  • 5 of 5

From the very first contact with the owners, Steve & Gill they were so helpful and made the booking process easy and provided us with all the information we could possibly wish for. At our arrival, Anita the property manager met us at the villa and made sure we could contact her if needed.

The house was spacious, well equipped and had everything we needed and was very clean, comfortable and in a good location.

The beach at Paynes Bay is great and a short walk from the property or you can walk to the road where you catch a bus to visit other beaches etc. We are already missing the sun, sea and the beautiful beaches.

There are plenty of restaurants and bars for sunset drinks within walking distance. We also enjoyed sitting out on the terrace in the evenings and the villa feels very homely with all the pictures and other decorations.

Thank you Gill & Steve for the use of your lovely home and we hope to return soon.

Absolutely fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

We booked to stay at Turtles Villa way back in January 2016 for a family two week break over Christmas and New Year 2016/17 as we also had Christmas 2015 in Barbados. The response from Steve and Gill was instant and the communication between us was outstanding throughout the booking process and prior to our arrival. Waiting almost 11 months to arrive was certainly worth it! The villa was spotlessly clean and completely fulfilled our expectations and more. The whole aura and presentation was amazing and the attention to detail was lovely. We loved all the little touches-gorgeous ornaments, fantastic pictures, comfy beds, awesome washer and the beautiful large veranda area became our home for two weeks. Managers Anita and Dave were on hand to deal with any queries and regularly 'check in' to see if we were okay! The information given to us prior to arrival and on booking was amazing and Steve and Gill clearly take pride and rightly so in their beautiful home and ensuring their guests are well informed about island life and the availability of every piece of information you could hope to be told as a newbie. We felt so lucky to be able to stay there! It was amazing to be in with all the 'locals' at Christmas time and everyone chatted daily and welcomed us. We travelled with our two grown up daughters who were just blown away by the villa! We did have a car for the whole duration of our holiday-however it is about a 5 minutes walk down the hill to the beach-just next to the Treasure beach hotel. And a handy Esso garage 2 minutes walk-again, just down the hill. Having beach towels provided and a washer and dryer was awesome so we could refresh beachwear and we made good use of the cool box and beach umbrella daily. Huge fantastically stocked kitchen with everything you would need to self cater. Although we didn't use the local buses-the bus stop is 5 minutes away to get around the island. Paynes Bay and Sandy Lane beach is awesome and of course, my girls had their photo taken with Simon Cowell!! All in all-we would highly recommend and we will certainly be back! Thank you so very much. An unforgettable experience for us all!

Where to start...

First off, what you see is what you get. The villa is amazing! Every room is presented so well, and the little touches make each bedroom feel like its the best one in the house. The villa was spotless and we were met with more than enough essential items to keep us going until we went to the supermarket.

The area is nice and quiet and amongst the locals. The bus stop is less than a 10 minute walk, and Holetown is not far at all.

Steve and Gill were so helpful from the start, and the information we received before our holiday was very useful. The lengths that Steve and Gill go to to make sure you have the best holiday possible is second to none.

We would definitely stay here again, and would highly recommend this villa to anyone looking for a lovely home from home.
