Amazing Stay, Perfect for the Family!

  • 5 of 5

We want to give a special thanks to Wendy and Marc for their hospitality and amount of attention we were given throughout our stay. Any needs we had Marc was there to help us immediately. It was our daughter's wedding and we had family staying with us, the house and property were extremely comfortable! Not to mention the pool access that comes with the rental, Great pool and Amazing Rum Punches!!! The location is in the middle of everything you want to enjoy in Barbados. To show the type of people Wendy and Marc are, my husband left his wedding ring on the property, he thought it was lost for good, only to get a call from Wendy a couple months later letting us know they had found it and soon after mailed it to us. Thank you guys for going thru the trouble. Once again we absolutely recommend you rent here if your visiting Barbados you won't regret it!

Great location desperately needs updating

  • 2 of 5

We arrived on the Sunday in the dark so we were not fully aware of the overall location of the villa, but when we got out in the light the next morning we realised that the location is great, but the place is grubby, everything we touched felt dirty, it's not very well maintained, the garden is very overgrown and the house isn't maintained either, however we just got on with it, we cleaned it up to the best of our ability.

There was no spare towels for us to use while there, only the ones left out for us to use in the bathrooms, and although there is a massive wardrobe in one of the bedrooms you can not use it as it is locked (obviously the owners property is in it) anyway we had very severe rain on the Tuesday after arriving (very heavy rain all day) causing floods on the roads, we were out on this day in Speightstown and couldn't get home due to the buses stoppping, we had lunch and a few drinks then got a taxi home and found that the rain was coming in through the ceiling of 2 of the 3 bedrooms, we immediately rang the maintenance guy who said there was nothing he could do as he wasn't a magician! I complained to the owner who suggested we find somewhere else to stay and gave us a refund, we did lose a day and a half of our holiday finding alternative accommodation due to this inconvenience but I can not fault the owners response, but this could have been avoided as there had been previous leaking as stated in a previous review. (The general cleanliness and look of the property is scruffy) I certainly would not stay here again

House in Need of Repairs

  • 2 of 5

The location is ideal and the house lay out is spacious and functional . However, the owner has not maintained the house and this made for an uncomfortable stay. There were holes in many of the screens so windows could not be opened without bugs coming in and it was hot. The main door handle was fussy and then broke right off. The bedroom ceiling leaked which I only found during a rainstorm in the middle of the night when I was awoken with water coming down on me. In the morning, I checked the rest of the room only to find another leak with a basin already in place so...the leaks were know. The wifi is only available in part of the house, we had to buy a router. The kitchen sink plugs don't work so a basin is in place to wash the dishes, although I needed the basin to catch the water from the leak ! The air conditioning is only in 2 of the 3 bedrooms and not in the rest of the house which was deceiving. Should I go on...? We are in Barbados 1-2 x a year as we have family living there and we will be sure to warn others of this absentee owner.

Owner's Response: A little confused,received a mail from guests Aug 3 rd. this is a beautiful cottage well maintained and clean. I am sorry you got wet,due to the drip from the ceiling.while guests were there I be leave there was very heavy rain for several days. This has now been fixed. The door handel,due to heavy rain the door swelled .hence difficultly with door handel, I be leave door Handel was replaced with a new one while guest were there. Mosquitos nets on Windows. No holes in bedrooms,no holes in kitchen window,no holes in both bathrooms, in sitting room which has 5 Windows,yes there is 2 Windows which do have holes in screen,plus the sitting room has patio doors that open onto garden room which has a large opening 5 ft X 5 ft with mosquito nets with no holes. Sink plugs. They are metal designed to collect food waste and let water drain through. Washing up bowl to wash dishes. Wifi it works very well in two bedroom and garden patio, correct it does not reach 3 rd bedroom or far end of sitting room which is near 3 rd bedroom. On advert it does say Only 2 of bedrooms have Air Con and there is a charge. Absent landlord, I do spend 6 months in Barbados.house manager,and cleaner have been with me for 23 years,and are great at helping guests.

Great villa in Barbados

  • 5 of 5

My family spent 9 days in this villa. It was perfect for us, 4 adults and 2 kids fit very comfortably. Wendy was a great host and made sure we had everything we need. The villa is in a great location, walking distance to many restaurants and bars in Holetown. Most nights we ate at home on the patio. We rented a car so that we could explore the island and checked out different beaches. The beach across the street from the villa is one of the most beautiful ones in Barbados. It doesn't have a beach chair/umbrella vendor or anyone serving food/drink but it is gorgeous if you need something walking distance. Our kids used the beach club pool as well and that was a very nice perk to have. I highly recommend staying here and we will definitely do that if we visit Barbados again.

Great holiday

  • 4 of 5

Although only two of us we had the villa using just one bedroom which was great. We tend to go out all day and the beaches are all easy to get to by walking or bus and the supermarket was only 5 minutes walk away . We used the Beach House facilities a few times and it was very nice to have. We had a fabulous holiday and loved Barbados and the people.
