About David Goodale

Hello, my name is David Goodale.

My wife Jennifer and I are fortunate in that our work allows us to travel. Being from beautiful (but snowy) Canada we have spent several winters in Barbados, and eventually purchased a vacation home there.

I love the Caribbean and the laid back lifestyle, which is entirely and completely a change of pace from back home. It helps to offset the fact that by nature I am not particularly good at relaxing. Getting away for me forces me (a little bit) to take a deep breath and break habits like compulsively checking email. (Confession: I still check my email pretty much constantly, but I have to with my work!)

In general, I feel that keeping perspective on the valuable things in life is important and for me travelling and a change of location helps me to do that from time to time.

Thanks for reading and if you have questions about Barbados or need help planning your stay feel free to contact me with any questions you have.

David Goodale purchased this villa in 2015

Why David Goodale chose Mount Standfast

Golden Acre is located in Mount Standfast which is a small area located between the west coast beaches and the Royal Westmoreland golf club. Many of the homes in the area are upper middle class, along with scattered mansions and villa compounds that are sprinkled along the waters edge. Mixed in with this are many friendly locals who live in the area. You will find that when walking to the beach people will wish you a good morning or a good afternoon as you walk by. The people of Barbados in general are very courteous and polite, and are proud of their home.

It takes 3 minutes to walk to Alleynes beach which is one of the most beautiful beaches on Barbados west coast. Alleynes offers ideal swimming conditions with the warm, calm tropical waters of the Caribbean sea. There are two beach bars located on Alleynes beach (Juju's and Santi) and also Lone Star Restaurant which offers a high end dining experience.

What makes this villa unique

Golden Acre is a beautiful new private townhouse complex set one street back from the busy coastal road on Barbados west coast.

We are a 3 minute walk from Alleynes beach which is one of the most beautiful beaches on the island. The compound is very quiet because it's set back off of the main road, giving you greater privacy and a quiet, relaxing setting.

Everything you need for your stay is located within 2km of the home including groceries, restaurants, bars and a movie theater.

Great Villa!

  • 5 of 5

I loved this Villa! It was a beautiful home. Very clean and well equipped. If you are looking for a party place this is not it. But if you want somewhere a little quieter and away from the busyness of Bridgetown this is the place for you! It was a very short walk to the beach where we just swam out a little bit to see turtles. We were lucky while we were there that very few of the other villas were rented out so we had the pool to ourselves. Everyday the green monkeys were around the pool area and the back of the Villa. Such a cool experience! The buses to Holetown were really easy and cheap plus it was a very short ride. So getting groceries was a breeze.

The owners were amazing to deal with. All of my questions were answered ahead of time. And even during my stay I received a couple emails just checking to make sure we were happy with everything.

The Villa was very comfortable. We all loved the beds. There is lots of closet space and lots of cupboard space int the kitchen. The couch was comfortable and big enough for all 5 of us to sit on. We used the barbque which was great. I have nothing but good things to say about this place!!!

Owner's Response: Hi Trisha, thank you for such an unbelievably kind review. I am glad that you had a good stay. Joan mentioned you really liked the beds and one of the guests wanted to find that same mattress back home. It was from Ashley Furniture, but I can't remember the model anymore. Thank you again for staying and you are welcome back any time. I hope you get the chance to return again in the future. All the best. David Goodale

Excellent vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Listing is totally accurate. Property was very well maintained and super clean! All questions answered quickly and professionally - David is great and very easy to deal with. We travelled with our 8-year old daughter. Property is quiet, relaxing. People around are super friendly, always felt safe. The walk to the beach was no problem - watch for cars on the main road if you have little ones. The beach was lovely and very safe for swimming and snorkelling. We also loved hanging out by the pool - most of the time we were the only ones there. My daughter loves all things nature....every late afternoon we would sit by the pool and watch the monkeys in the trees, then as night fell the bats came out high overhead, and as it got dark there were tons of fireflies sparkling all around. Loved. it.

Beautiful house! Great location!

  • 4 of 5

The listing description and pictures were 100% accurate: beautiful house, extremely well maintained and clean, very-well located, 7 minute walk to the beach (magical sunset on that beach), close to a brand new grocery store and a large pool to end our days. Highly recommended!

Fantastic Property that is close to the best beach

  • 5 of 5

The property is amazing. This was a first time visit to Barbados and it had all the amenities that we were looking for. Our favorite activity was watching the sunset at Ju Ju's which is a few minutes away and when it got dark going to the pool just a few steps away from the the villa. The owners are amazing, keeping the place clean for guests and explaining the activities to do around the island.

We have been around the island to explore other beach areas. They were either too rocky, waves were too choppy, and they didnt have the amazing sunset.

The villa itself is quite big with 3 bedrooms and very clean. Played some Xbox and cooked on the barbecue a few nights which was fantastic.

If you are visiting Barbados this is a great villa and we are coming back next year to stay here.

Lovely villa, great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a brilliant 10 days here. The villa is in a fantastic location, in amongst local accommodation but only about 250 m easy walk to a wonderful beach.

The villa is well equipped an maintained. Master bedroom in particular is excellent.

Location great and the owner David was excellent leading up to the stay and when we were there.

It was our first visit to Barbados and even though we were all really looking forward to it , the holiday exceeded our expectations.

We will be back!
