The villa was very comfortable and clean and it was very well equipped. Location was very convenient, with fast access to the West coast beaches and immediate access to amenities (petrol station, supermarket and medical centre).
Both the ladies that helps with check-in and check-out (Sarah) and the one that cleans the property (Jacky) were very polite, helpful and friendly.
I would highly recommend this property to someone looking for a convenient place to stay.
The house is beautiful, very clean and had everything we needed. Jacky (the cleaner) is so friendly and helpful and full of local knowledge and Rodney (the pool man) is also super friendly!
The nearest shops are not even two minutes walk away, with a supermarket, bank, petrol station, and gift shops there is little you wont be able to get hold of. The medical centre is right at the end of the street and the Drs there are very good.
There are lots of fab places to eat right along the main street and almost all of these are directly ON the beach. Less than 5mins away is the beach club which does lovely food at very reasonable prices. They also have great showers next to the pool- handy for when you've finished on the beach and want to go straight to dinner.
The buses are frequent and by far the cheapest way to get around. People are always keen to help if you're not sure where to get off, so don't miss out on the experience!
There is also a van that parks at the end of the street (about 5 doors down from the villa) with local fresh food like chicken, rice n peas, macaroni, breadfruit and plantain- very cheap and really tasty.
The island is absolutely beautiful, the people are friendly and always helpful. We will definitely be coming back soon. Can't recommend it enough 👍❤
The villa is just as described. The interior is spacious with a well appointed kitchen and 2 good sized bedrooms. The outside lounge was a great space to lounge about in and the pool was great to cool off in. The location, one block back from the beach was nice and quiet but with all the amenities of Holetown on your doorstep. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend the villa to friends and family and will definitely be back.
We booked the Villa for a last minute holiday and it was a great choice. Comfortable bed, well equipped kitchen and pleasant,private garden with a plunge pool. Very close to a supermarket and a good range of shops and restaurants. Bus stops very close so easy to get around the island (though worth hiring a car for a day or two to go inland). A real bonus was access to the nearby beach club which has a decent pool, sunbeds and direct access to the beach with lovely swimming and some snorkeling opportunities.
Sarah, the Manager, greeted us on arrival and was fantastically helpful with any queries or help we needed. Jackie, the cleaner comes twice a week and does a great job very unobtrusively. A gardener and pool cleaner also come regularly.
Would highly recommend for a couple or small family.
This villa is in a wonderful location, situated in a residential area, close to the supermarket and a wide range of fabulous restaurants, bars and varied retail outlets. The beach is less than 5 mins walk and the bus route providing inexpensive and regular routes around the island, is a 2 min walk away. The off road secure parking is ideal. Air con was effective and bed very comfortable so we enjoyed quality sleep!
The house has been thoughtfully presented in terms of providing spacious accommodation with comfortable furnishings. The outdoor living is fabulous with a secluded swimming pool and deck and lovely outdoor patio providing welcome shade. For those wishing to self cater, the kitchen is very well equipped (a new set of non stick pans would be helpful) and the BBQ was certainly well used during our stay! The accommodation was spotless and Jackie, the housekeeper provided mid stay service to change beds, towels etc. Sarah, the local property manager was very helpful and contacted us during our stay to check that we had everything we needed. The swimming pool is regularly maintained although with such an unobtrusive service, we were hardly aware of this being done.
We would certainly recommend this accommodation, particularly to those who don't wish to hire a car. Thanks Steve, we had a fabulous holiday.
We thoroughly enjoyed our ten day, pre-Christmas holiday in Holetown.
The villa is situated within a five minute walk of the supermarket and other shops and although we hired a car (doorless and roofless mini moke...amazing fun) you can dot around on the regular buses. Bit sweaty and cramped for our liking, but an experience.
The villa itself is well cared for by Jackie the cleaner, who we met several times and the gardens were tended too. Sarah meets you at the property and will give you a run down of all the essentials.
The bedrooms are spacious and the master particularly light and with a large en-suite shower room.
The kitchen was well equipped with a nice big fridge and freezer for all the essentials. Just a note on food. It's an island(shock horror) so everything is imported and pricey. We found on several occasions that it is as 'cheap' to eat out but it was nice sometimes to have an evening in if we had been out all day.
Our tip would be to bring some items with you.
Not pizza, but tea, coffee and any other favorite bits you like to nibble. Crisps, chocolate and biscuits seem particularly expensive so shove a few packs in your luggage.
As a guide a 4 pint bottle of semi skimmed milk worked out around £4.75 (getting $1.50 american to sterling). A loaf of bread was around £2.50. Bar of dairy milk( if you felt the urge) was around a fiver. Mosquito machines were in the villa and we just bought a refill from the supermarket, but again bring with you if you attract them. They were even biting the locals when we were there.
Air con worked well and we did need it, but the ceiling fan in the master kept us cool without noise and the drying effect air con has while you are asleep.
The furniture on the covered veranda was comfy and we used it more than the indoor area which wasn't as comfortable for us, but would be fine if you felt the need to watch tv. There is a dvd player too.
Beaches are within a 5-10 minute stroll and there are the obligatory jet ski salesmen who want to take you out, or on a glass bottom boat, but they are polite enough and leave you if you're not interested.
All the beaches we visited were lovely and all had bars and restaurants for lunch if you wanted it.Banks beer is the local brew and to be recommended.
Would we recommend to friends and stay again?
The position was ideal for the Platinum coast and it had everything we needed for our stay there. It was clean, equipped well and the pool was great.
