Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Saint Lawrence Gap - Sweet Paw Paw House

3 bedroom house minutes from Maxwell Beach

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 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.

The perfect place to stay in paradise

  • 5 of 5

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.

Fantastic House!

  • 5 of 5

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.

What a beautiful home and a lovely holiday oasis.

  • 5 of 5

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!

Didn't want it to end.

  • 5 of 5

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!

Top accomodation!

  • 5 of 5

I have to say that this was one of the best holidays I have ever had!! This is the perfect place to enjoy Barbados whilst feeling at home! It was so lovely to relax and recuperate in a perfect relaxing setting whilst enjoying all of the local traditions without feeling like a total tourist. The locals were so friendly and helpful! I have to thank the owners for an exceptional time & they did their utmost to ensure the best vacation!

Thank you so much for sharing your home, Mr. & Mrs. Fanning!

Best wishes,

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.

Upstairs is a TV lounge, an office with computer and Internet access, three bedrooms and two full baths. Downstairs there is a sitting area/lounge adjoining the kitchen, ideal for those that prefer to watch cooking rather than to do it. The dining room and a powder room also adjoin the sitting area. Through the kitchen door is the rear patio including a barbecue, dining area and wet bar. Unfortunately, you must stock the bar yourself. In addition to the rear patio, the house has 2 upstairs balconies and 2 ground level verandas. The gardens include a mango tree, a guava tree and two young lime trees. Of course, the availability of fruit depends on the season. There is a housekeeper and a gardener, each coming once a week. Additional housekeeping service is available at additional cost. The house is designed to take full effect of the trade winds with louvred windows and awnings so it is not air-conditioned but remains wonderfully cool and breezy year-round.
