Guestbook comments from the owner

Just a note to tell you how much we enjoyed staying at the villa. It was hard to tear ourselves away from the delightful gardens and fantastic pool. We were impressed with William (Airport transfer), Cherita and Emerald also the gardener and pool maintenance. We were lucky enough to have a visit from several green monkeys and loved the birds too. We enjoyed a pleasant walk each evening to and from the restaurants and found the supermarket to be conveniently situated. We found the villa very comfortable and in a nice area.

We would like to thank you and all involved for a trouble free, well organised and very enjoyable stay.

We had wonderful time!!!

  • 5 of 5

The villa was beautiful! It was tastefully furnished, clean, every convenience possible and the gardens were truly beautiful. The fact that the villa had that wonderful pool and pool patio area made it Blissful!

It was an ideal spot for us, nice and quiet but close to the beaches and all of the restaurants and other facilities in beautiful Holetown.

The villa manager was so helpful, he was a wealth of information on where to go and what to do. I definitely plan to return and will not hesitate to recommend it to my friends.

Contentment!! Best Place ever..

  • 5 of 5

What can I say? I discovered this paradise 6 years ago and have returned every year since then, 'my home away from home.'

Perfectly located within walking distance to the fabulous Sandy Lane Beach, a block away from Sunset Crest Mall, 2 blocks from a supermarket and restaurants and 4 blocks from Limegrove Lifestyle Centre, where you'll find Cartier, Gucci, Bvlgari and the like

The villa itself is wonderful, clean and stocked with amenities, it is on a quiet cul de sac with fruit bearing trees, the most refreshing pool and an occasional monkey. The property manager, Heather is hands on and available to address all questions and concerns and Emerald is there to change linens and towels every 3 or 4 days. But don't take my word for it, just go and see for yourself. You won't be disappointed!!

What a "Blissful Vacation"

  • 5 of 5

When I arrived at Aqua Bliss villa, I saw it was everything a vacationer could ask for. We were warmly greeted by the villa manager. She took time to walk us through the villa to point out where everything was. We quickly got acclimated and settled into a villa that was spacious, clean and comfortable. All our needs were provided for and if not, there was always a ready response from Heather, the villa manager.

The villa is conveniently located in a quiet section of the Sunset Crest area and allows for a good night’s rest. It is off the beaten track but within a short walk (exercise) from the beach, shops, restaurants and a highway to the city.

We thoroughly enjoyed our time in and around the pool; even when we went to the beach, we resorted to the pool on our return to the villa.

I look forward to making another booking at Aqua Bliss and will highly recommend it to family and friends and anyone looking for great holiday accommodation.

Wonderful Holiday at Aqua Bliss Villa

  • 5 of 5

We had such an awesome time. The place was everything we hoped for, it was well equipped, clean and well maintained. The location was perfect, walking distance to everything. We heard about this villa from a friend who stays there every year and decided to try it. We especially liked the early morning pool swims with breakfast and the sunset swims with cocktails. Dining under the stars on the pool deck was amazing. There is a BBQ grill that was really put to use during our stay. The beaches are quite close, only a short walk away and they are stunning, I especially liked the beach at Sandy Lane. You should also visit the other beaches on other parts of the island. Jill, the owner, arranged our airport pick up with William the taxi driver and he was wonderful, we used him to take us to see other parts of the island. Heather the villa manager was very accommodating and responded to any questions or concerns that we had.

I will definitely return and will recommend Aqua Bliss to friends.

Aqua Bliss... definitely bliss!

  • 4 of 5

We liked the look of this villa on this site, as it looked smaller than the ones we've had before. We were wrong, it was a lovely large sized villa with decent sized bedrooms, kitchen and living area. We were greeted by the lovely Heather who showed us around, explaining what we needed to know about the place. Heather stayed in contact with us, with regards to when the cleaner was coming. She also sorted a few minor issues we had very promptly and is such a lovely helpful lady. The villa itself, was kept very clean, was well equipped with kitchen items and items in the living area (TV, Internet etc) The only issue, which really wasn't an issue was that we didn't have access to the air conditioning in the main living area, so we kept the main door open with the fan on instead. The other air conditioning units were accessible in the bedrooms.

The outside dining area was used by us every night, whether it was to eat or just sit and have a few sociable drinks. The pool area, was well maintained and was cleaned whilst we were there. The pool was used by us all every single day even on those days where we went to the beach as my daughter just loved playing in it.

I would definitely recommend this property to my family and friends as it is situated in a lovely quiet area and only a 10 minute walk to the nearest beach and shopping facilities. Some of our favourites being Zaccio's, Surfside and The Beach House. We will definitely be back, thank you all for such a wonderful stay in Barbados!

The pool had an awful smell and taste and irritated my children's eyes and skin so much so they didn't want to go in. This completely spoilt our holiday as we are all complete water babes and it was very hot. In August you really need air con (especially if you cant use the pool!) and the unit in the sitting room/kitchen is not available for guest use and so we couldn't use this room and definitely too hot to cook. We had problems with the plumbing on 3 occasions which were not properly fixed and the main bathroom is tiny and not suitable for 4 people. The place is covered in padlocks which was disconcerting and annoying. We had an amazing time in Antigua the year before but wouldn't recommend this villa. The restaurants are also shockingly expensive. A very disappointing and expensive holiday. I would recommend spending more and getting a really nice villa.
