|Minimum Stay||5 nights|
This 3 bedroom house is meant for tropical vacations. Located less than 10 minutes walk from the beautiful sands and blue water of Maxwell Beach, it offers relaxation and fun, as you please. The three bedrooms are all upstairs along with the TV lounge, balcony, and computer room/office. Wireless internet is available to guests as well. The ground floor has a fully equipped kitchen with a 6-burner gas range, fridge/freezer with ice maker and a range of small appliances (coffee maker, blender, microwave, etc). A sitting room, powder room and dining room for 6 (or more) are also on the ground floor. There is a large enclosed patio at the rear of the house which is really the heart of this house. The patio has a wet bar (unfortunately guests must stock it themselves), a second dining area and a gas barbecue making it ideal for entertaining as well as being a good place to relax and enjoy the breeze. Two available air beds, a cot and a futon/sofa provide additional sleeping options for extra guests.
I have literally just returned with my family from a 16 night stay at Sweet Paw Paw. I cannot express how disappointed I am in the way we were treated by the housekeeper and the owners.
Having contacted the housekeeper Shelley from the airport on our arrival as directed by her we were still left standing outside the property in the dark for approximately 30 minutes. When Shelley did turn up she was rude and obnoxious towards myself and my family.
The property itself is beautiful and in a good location but this is all I can say positive about it.
We had a number of belongings stolen from us including Jewellery, perfume and money at the end of the first week after the cleaner Diana had been in as she negligently left all of the windows open and left the house insecure.
The housekeeper Shelley was contacted in regards to the missing items but her response was "what do you want me to do"?. She offered no support or advice about what we should do.
The owner of the property Paul and was also very unhelpful when I contacted him by email also offering no advice or support although he admitted his cleaner had been negligent by leaving all the windows open yet he refused to accept responsibility or any form of liability, even though it was made very clear to us on our arrival that we should not leave any of the windows open in the property when we were not there. However Diana the cleaner did exactly this even though we asked her to secure the property when she left, which she assured us she would do.
We took it upon ourselves to report the theft to the police and when they requested the address of the housekeeper Shelley so that they could speak to her she refused to provide it to me.
I cannot describe how this situation impacted on our holiday. The safe provided at the property was broken and unable to be used.
I am very, very disappointed in our treatment and experience from the housekeeper, cleaner and property owners. As a seasoned traveller I have NEVER come across such dismissive and unfriendly people before and would never expect such treatment especially when I am paying a substantial sum to rent accommodation.
The house is great, cozy, extremely clean, perfectly maintained and very well equipped. In addition It's location is optimal. The owner provided us excellent assistance during the entire period being always friendly and helpful. We definitely recommend this place if you are looking for a quiet place to stay in Barbados, close to wonderful beaches, attractions and different restaurants.
Myself and two friends rented this house and had an incredible week stay. The location is ideal and there's a beach in walking distance and taking the bus into town is very easy.
Paul was pleasant and prompt in his correspondences and the Property Manager was lovely. The house is quite large and we really enjoyed having the indoor/outdoor patio space to host dinners.
The only thing is there is no A/C, however there was a good cross-breeze with all the windows and fans open.
I would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it.
I could not have asked for more; mere five minutes from Maxwell Beach and yet a feeling of being part of the community rather than a tourist setting. The home and gardens were well maintained ahd I would highly recommend this property to anyone. The home is very spacious, rooms quite lovely and the showers, a treat!
It was an easy trek to the grocery store and taxis and buses were always available when I did not feel like walking. The location was excellent....only a brief bus ride to St. Lawrence Gap, Rockley Beach, Bridgetown and beyond.
There were a host of delightful restaurants, some within easy walking distance and the property manager was alway available should there be any questions.
Cannot wait to go back!
10 stayed quite comfortable in this 3 bedroom home. 2 very comfortable queen size air matresses!. House very clean and housecleaner and gardener very friendly. The outdoor sitting area is very spacious and one does all the entertainment out there, House is walking distance to nice beach, buses and restaurants. The owners will answer any questions. Highly recommend this place for couples and families.
This January, I left Canada for a reason: it was unbelievably cold (-35C). Those 15 days in Barbados were a welcome break for me and renting Sweet Paw Paw made it even better as I enjoyed its convenience & comfort.
I have known the owner, Paul, for over 25 years now and he knows I say things as they are: the Fanning's house is really a perfect place for a tropical vacation. This was my second stay in SPP and my 4th trip to Bim and I am already thinking about my next trip back.
The staff is very friendly: Christopher the gardener, Ashley the agent and Diana the housekeeper are simply just great people.
The house is very well located, minutes away from beaches (Maxwell, Entreprise, Accra, etc), and close to Ostins, St. Lawrence Gap and Bridgetown. The Friday Night Fish Fry, the Barbados Wildlife Reserve, Earthworks Pottery, Crane Beach, the various lighthouses and Andromeda Gardens are amongst the places one must see.
A really really great stay!

Sweet Paw Paw is located less than 10 minutes walk from Maxwell Beach, between Oistins and St. Lawrence Gap on Barbados South Coast. It is less than 30 minutes walk (or a very short drive) to the heart of the St. Lawrence Gap bars, restaurants and clubs. Close enough to be convenient but far enough to not hear the music if you don't want to.
Oistins with it's famous Friday night fish fry and party is 5 minutes drive along the Maxwell Main Road. Super Centre Supermarket, gas stations and ATMs are also available here.
The airport is also convenient, less than 20 minutes drive away.
