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.

Excellent as always, very convenient for everythin

  • 5 of 5

This was our 10th (I think) stay at allanha and we had another lovely stay. We spend most of our time in the garden which has loungers, lots of shade and a large covered patio. The kitchen is well equipped with a large cooker which is ideal for entertaining. The beach is a very short walk across the road and through a paved walkway and the beach club is a pleasant place to sit by the pool or have a drink. The other guests are very friendly and Mark, who manages the property, is very helpful.

Janice keeps the apartment very clean and is always happy and helpful.

We look forward to returning in 2015

Well what a delight to stay here. This is my second visit to the island and Wendy could not make us feel more welcome. The Villa was immaculately clean and only minutes from a stunning beach and very close to shops, restaurants and all local amenities. I would highly recommend staying here it was the icing on the cake to our holiday and I will definitely coming back!!

Brilliant villa for any number of guests

  • 5 of 5

This villa is in the perfect location for exploring the whole of the island and is in Holetown so has every local convenience you will need. We stayed as a couple and the whole villa was available to us except the other two bedrooms, so was very spacious. There was no need to use the air con as the windows all have insect nets and secure metal grids so can be left open and the breeze was fantastic. Outside there is a covered patio for the occasional liquid sunshine and a lovely secluded garden and very comfortable chairs to soak up the sun.

Janice, the maid comes a couple of times a week and this is enough as she does a great job. We forgot to bring any beach towels and she went straight home and brought us some!

We were hoping to use the Beach Club opposite the villa, but unfortunately the Club has no beach just a pool which leads onto the Boardwalk and the sea. This wasn't a problem as it made us get out and about every day to other beaches.

The West Coast is having a lot of work done to it at the moment, but that's to combat the coastal erosion so is very necessary.

I would not hesitate to recommend this villa and Wendy to any size of party as this property would easily accomodate six people and there are two smaller properties attached.

I would be happy to reply to any mails about this property, as Wendy was very helpful with my enquiries with her.
