Within the Barbados coral core there is a vast array of caves and underground lakes which provide an excellent supply of drinking water that is amongst the purest in the world. This means it is perfectly safe to drink tap water.
We were a group of 4 friends staying at the pool house for 6 nights. We all enjoyed how efficient Lorraine was with the booking. The managing team of the house was amazing as well. The location is perfect. Bottom bay is an amazing area and the beach was incredible. The house is spacious and the pool was great. Make sure to ask for a BBQ to enjoy the patio at night. We will definitely return.
This was our second stay at the pool house and it was every bit as fantastic as the first. The villa is fantastic, spacious and airy and really well maintained and furnished. It's a lovely spot to relax but the real star of the show is the fantastic pool. It is in my opinion the best pool in the development having checked out quite a few. It's a perfect villa in a great location on the best side of the island.
I can just confirm feedback from other reviewers - this is really great property and has everything you need, clean, spacious and is perfect choice if you are looking to stay somewhere away from crowds. Very peaceful and comfortable and we - family of 4 (6 years old boy and 8 years old girl) enjoyed our stay very much. Car is very recommended as you would probably like to explore and enjoy other beaches around the island. Bottom Bay beach is only few minutes walk from the villa and you would probably be there alone for most of the time. It's very beautiful beach, but waves are a bit too rough for swimming, so we were rather driving to south-west beaches which are much better for kids, swimming and snorkeling. Swimming pool was big bonus for the kids, as they have had evening swims before going to sleep or jumping in the pool first thing in the morning :-). Also everything was perfect with booking procedure, payment, etc managed by Lorraine as well as Jan and John took great care of us and making sure we have everything we need. Highly recommended - feels like home!
The house and the entire facility was perfectly in line with the description. The stars are not 5 due to the location: for sure near one of the most beautiful beaches of the island (Bottom Bay) but quite far from the most popular and sandy ones. In Bottom bay is not a good choise to have a bath..... So definitely you need a car to move from the house to other parts of the island, including for shopping. It can take 30-35 minutes to arrive to a suitable beach in the south-east part of the island (Carlisle Bay, Accra Beach, etc.). A little less to get to Crane Beach, one of the most beautiful beaches in the world................
The property was clean, well maintained and really comfortable. Just a remark on the number of pans available, but the manager told me that the problem will be promptly fixed. Excellent wifi connection. The pool is not very big, but really suitable for a relaxing day at the house.
People that take care of the house on the island are very nice and completely available for help. Very good welcome and customer care.
For sure I will reccommend this property to any friend of mine that can decide to visit Barbados.
I came to Barbados for the sea..... So we really spent very short time around. I strongly reccommend to have a complete tour of the island, any single corner of the island is a nice place to see. It can take a FULL day, starting from the house and going north wise.
Restaurants are not cheap. You can eat at reasonable prices only if you choose street food. Restaurants are very exclusive. Good food, good wine, not cheap. To have a complet menu for two, you should spend 120 US$.
The Pool House is an extremely comfortable villa just a few minutes walk from the beautiful Bottom Bay with its fantastic waves. Our family of 4 (we have two boys ages 13 and 10) found everything we needed in the villa. The furniture and beds were really comfortable, the fridge with ice-maker was welcomed and the free wi-fi was a bonus. Best of all is the wonderful pool which is such a good size and very inviting. We have stayed in Atlantic Rising before and can say that the Pool House is the best! Jan and John gave us a great Bajan welcome and made sure we had everything we needed and Lorraine made sure that our booking and payments, etc were all managed smoothly and efficiently. Can really recommend this villa which is such excellent value.
I was so happy to find this lovely villa to get away from our busy life in new York City! The property is simply wonderful - peaceful and safe, spacious, clean, comfortable; we had everything we needed. We enjoyed the small garden and outdoor eating area every day and watch the stars from the lounge chairs at night. Our seven year old son spotted humming birds in the garden, found lizards and frogs when he happened not to be inside the pool. The pool was great especially for him as the close by beaches and not suitable for swimming for little ones although they are absolutely stunning and we spend a lot of time enjoying their beauty. Car is recommended especially with small children as you can drive to the Caribbean beaches in 20-30 minutes for calmer waters and snorkeling. We are grateful to Lorraine for lending her lovely home and make it possible for us to have a vacation of our dreams! We loved Barbados and we loved the Pool House. Thank you Lorraine! We hope to come back... Kamila, Sebastian and Christophe
Situated east of the windward isles Barbados is a relatively small coral stone island. Being approximately 26 miles long by 14 miles wide makes everything the island have to offer easily accessible. The Pool House is located on the south eastern coast of the island, on a quiet development called Atlantic Rising and is a short stroll from the breathtaking Bottom Bay beach, said by some to be one of the most picturesque beaches in the world. There are several other stunning beaches and bays within the immediate area including the famous beaches at The Crane and Sam Lords Castle. Harrismith, Palmetto and Long Bay are also stunning beaches which are just a short stroll. The airport is situated approximately 15 minutes away and the capital, Bridgetown (for Duty Free Shopping) , around 30 minutes from the Atlantic Rising developement.
Barbados has warm weather year round with temperatures not usually ever dropping below the mid-70's (27-30 degrees centigrade). The gentle Atlantic breeze on this side of the island means that even on the hottest days the temperatures are comfortable. Anytime of the year is a good time to visit.
With endless miles of white, powdery sand, exotic lush green botanical gardens, a rich colonial history, acres of sugar plantations and the gentle lapping of the Caribbean Sea, Barbados is truly an amazing place for a holiday. Nature lovers will admire the natural beauty on the island whilst food and drink connoisseurs have the option of dinning at some of the best restaurants in the Caribbean. The local speciality, rum, is very cheap on the island, and there are many types – the Four Square distillery is very close by and is great to visit. Rum shacks are everywhere on the island, cheap and very cheerful ! (quite an experience!).
Barbados is an island of FESTIVALS including: the Jazz Festival and wind surfing championships in January, Holetown Festival, Holders season and the Gold Cup in February and March, Gospelfest in May, the famous Crop Over celebrations from July to August, and the surfing championships in November. The hectic West and South coasts are about a 30-minute drive away where the beaches are somewhat calmer but much more crowded. For nightlife, about 15 minutes drive to the popular St Lawrence Gap, and for fresh fish caught that day, the Oistins Fish Fry is a hit with both tourists and locals alike.
WEDDINGS are very popular on this beautiful island and Bottom Bay beach has become quite 'the place' to have your own personalised wedding ceremony.
