About Steve Owens

Paula and I are now both retired and have been visiting Barbados for over 30 years so consider ourselves 'Bajans' This is our home away from home and we use it over the winter periods.

Steve Owens purchased this house in 2002

Why Steve Owens chose St. Michael

This is a lovely gated community in a quiet Chattel village. The villagers are helpful and kind and you are a short hop from most attractions. We instantly fell in love with this property as it was more like a home that a holiday unit.

spacious comfortable very clean everything OK

  • 5 of 5

Everything was clean, worked well, spacious, airy and excellent for the warm climate. Pool was perfect. NO MOSQUITOES!

The environment felt very safe, not just because it's a gated development. Your instructions were fine - could have mentioned the recycling arrangements. What a pleasant, handsome development - congratulations! We've already recommended it to others.

A great place to stay in Barbados

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the house during the month of January 2016. We had an excellent stay and endorse the positive comments of other reviewers. Based on our extensive experience in renting properties in many countries, here are 5 reasons why we enjoyed the property.

1. Peaceful and very quiet - a lovely property development

2. Ease of contact with the owner and a pleasant property manager on site

3. The house had all the amenities one would require and basic products were provided : toilet paper, cleaning products, towels etc.

4. Security : no worries here as there are gates, a security guard etc.

5. Proximity to Bridgetown and access to the beaches - you need a car however.

We would stay in this house again and would give it a strong recommendation.

lovely villa and fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from our holiday and have to say it is one of the most relaxing we have ever had. The garden staff were very friendly and everything you could want is there. Debbie .. the house manager was very friendly and informative ... included was Wifi .. a tv with cable ... cleaning service...BBQ .. fully fitted kitchen and a laundry room .. the pool is just a few feet away and is lovely. We had a car for the duration but we did venture into Bridgetown on the local bus one day and was a brilliant experience.

We didn't have young children but would recommend this villa to both adults and families of younger children also.

The local people were all very friendly and helped us with information regarding travel and supermarkets etc...

We had a trip on a catamaran one day with Silver Moon which was worth every penny and would highly recommend this.. all the food and drink was included -- but we did take our own champagne with us too (5 bottles !!) .. The food was unbelievable ... we did a sunset cruise which was fabulous. they moored up at Sandy Lane to have dinner .. and before that we swam with the turtles at Carlisle Bay.

My daughter got married while we were there in the Sandals resort and I have to say it was a brilliant day and one of the best weddings I have ever attended .. truly wonderful.

lots of lovely restaurants within easy reach ... We visited Tapas ... The Lone Star... Blakey's ... and many more ... many of them on the beach ....wonderful food .. and you must visit Oistins on a Friday or Saturday evening .. fantastic.

All in all ... a very well equipped villa ( use of towels was also included which was very beneficial .. ) we didn't know this before we arrived so had brought our own .. and a lovely location..

Thank you Steve and Paula

Great house, Great location

  • 5 of 5

We found the owner Steve most helpful and informative.

The house did not disappoint, you felt at ease as soon as

you walked in. Fully equipped with everything you could

possibly need. Pool just a few paces away.

The staff at Gunsite are very friendly and helpful.

We had a car for the two weeks as we like to be independent,

but there were the local bus service, which looked fun.

One of the most relaxing holidays we have had.

Thank you.

Still a great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Property is just the same - all clean, well maintained, and plenty of equipment., towels, crockery, cutlery, etc.

Gardens still beautiful, worked on by the ever- helpful gardeners, who helped me change a flat tyre (or to be honest, gardener Kevin did it for me!)

We prefer this part of the island, just east of bridgetown because of the fantastic sea life in Carlisle Bay, which is 5 minutes away by car, or a 30 minute walk.

Photos don't really do the place justice. It is a light airy house, all bedrooms and living room have aircon if you really cannot get a draught going through. Laundry room works. Denise coped admirably with my son's skin allergy when she washed the sheets and towels.

Gated community feels extra-safe, although i would feel comfortable without the gates.

Steve was quick to respond to questions, and is pretty "no worries" to deal with.

Look forward to returning again. Would definitely recommend to friends and family.

Thanks again Steve and Paula!

The Gunsite Townhouse Complex is a small gated community made up of 16 duplex townhouses, 32 units in total, located on an escarpment overlooking the south coast of Barbados. The owners and tenants have the luxury of a magnificent command of historical Christ Church, privacy and exclusivity within minutes of the city, the South Coast beaches and the Airport. The complex includes a communal swimming pool surrounded by a large pool deck, beautiful gardens, tenant and visitor parking. Please look here for details on the complex website


Close to Bridgetown the capital of Barbados. We are close to Bridgetown the capital of Barbados. Other tourist attractions are St, Lawrence Gap where the restaurants and live music attract lots of tourists.

Oistins fish fry on Friday and Saturday night are a must. Here you will be able to eat locally caught fish and the local evening entertainment is unique.

Carlisle Bay is a beautiful stretch of beach and considered one of the top 10 beaches in the world. A trip to Doris' Rum shack on this beach is a must. you cant miss it as it has nearly every national flag in the world flying from her rooftop.

Harrison's Cave is a fantastic day out and should not be missed if you can fit it in. St Johns church on the east coast gives you a breathtaking view of the whole east coast of Barbados. A car/taxi is needed for this trip.

The Absolute Rum Shack (or Watering Hole) at the entrance to St Lawrence gap is a must on a Saturday. The atmosphere is fantastic and the characters unique. Karaoke nights are great and there are some quite good singers that go along so its buzzin. You will pay at least half price for drinks here compared to the bars in St Lawrence Gap.

Shakers is what I describe as an up market rum shack/restaurant, it is not far from the house but can be difficult to find. It's worth a visit as their beer battered catch of the day is to die for and their baby back ribs are awesome. Great value for money and a great friendly atmosphere. Make an effort to visit this restaurant, you won't be disappointed
