More Details

Details for holiday villa East Pool , 2 Bedrooms, Sleeps 5, 2 Bathrooms, 1 Separate WC

This villa has a private pool and a hot tub spa. The spa is optional and can be set to operate during your holiday. Just ask. Although all four villas have the same basic design, and similar furnishings and fixtures. However each villa has its own character and uniqueness. This villa's character is one of open tropical living, right from the large pool deck, on the entertainment patio into the living room, it feels like all tropical open living.

Serene, crystal clear blue waters surrounded by lush tropical gardens is the main feature of our holiday villas.

The bedrooms are en suite and have private balconies. The north view from one of the balconies looks on to the playing field of a secondary school.

This villa has a large entertainment pool deck, where you can get your sun tan from early in the morning until about 3pm as the pool is on the east side of the building. The air condition in the living/dining room is optional. see rates for more details on optional Air con and Spa

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Carlton,

Thank you very much for our great holiday in your villa - it was our best holiday so far! Your villa is truly fantastic, we had everything we needed and more... we loved hummingbirds, green monkeys, beautiful flowers in your garden, night swimming in the pool... and I could go on.

Also thank you very much for the use of your car and arranging the taxi to take us to the airport - it is a shame that we couldn't say 'Thank you'

and 'Good bye' to you personally on our last day.

Please pass our regards also to Hazel - it was a real pleasure to talk to her!

Kind regards,

Radovan, Martina, Alexandra & Marcus


I just wanted to send a quick email to let you know we had a thoroughly enjoyable time in Barbados last week. The villa is spacious and beautiful. We really enjoyed sitting out on the veranda on an evening next to the pool, drinking rum punch. We also found everything we needed a short walk away, bars, restaurants, shops and the beautiful Sandy Lane B

A fantastic villa in a perfect location, literally home from home and a lot more.

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from two weeks in the East Pool Villa. The villa has everything you could possible need, it is in a very central location with just minutes walk from Hometown and a variety of restaurants. Venture out a bit further north and discover De Outback restaurant for a taste of real Barbados. And Carlton. thank you for everything it was like staying with a very good friend. Beautiful beaches, endless sunshine and Carlton keep thinking about how to package that sunshine - I'm sure it will sell. ;-)

A great home with everything you need in the heart of Holetown

  • 4 of 5

East pool villa was a great place to spend a week with friends. We arrive to find Carlton waiting at our villa with our rental car ready and everything in order for us to enjoy our stay in Holetown. The house was spacious and had most of the amenities you want or need. We arrived early and despite a mix up with our arrival time, Carlton was able to accommodate us and the housekeeper worked around us.

We found the house very clean and the pool area was a wonderful place to unwind and seemed very private. The neighbourhood was a quiet one, the only noises coming from the birds, bees and the monkeys that hang out in the area. Grocery stores and restaurants were just a short walk away.

The only negatives were very minor things such as having no sharp knives or large bowls in the kitchen.

We would definitely not hesitate to stay there again when back in Holetown.

Loved it !!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at poolside and east pool villas and honestly cannot complain about anything aside from the perfect location in Holetown and everything being so close ... The villas accommodations were great. Carlton greeted us at 5am as we arrived early; he gave us a detailed tour of the property and was there responding to all inquires if needed. He even went as far as letting us know what crop over events would be taking place while we were in town. Carlton was able to accommodate us on such short notice and the process from reserving and renting the villa to arriving and departing was seamless. I would recommend this villa to anyone looking to stay in Holetown and will definitely be staying there again on my next trip to Barbados. Thank again Carlton!

Another fantastic holiday at Vida Mejor Villa

  • 5 of 5

We had another fantastic time in Carlton's villas.

We had both the West and East pool villas.

It was perfect for a family of 10. The villas are very spacious and accommodated us perfectly. Both are very well maintained and in immaculate condition.

They are situated in a quiet neighbourhood, but very hand for the beach, supermarket, bars and restaurants in Holetown.

We will definately be returning next year!


Drew Ruthven and family,

East Villa and Spa

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed three weeks at the East Pool Villa and Spa last August whilst on holiday and had a fantastic time! We have always stayed in Holetown as it has everything you need and we like the area very much. We have previously stayed in studio apartments and hotel apartments which have too been in ideal locations, but even though the latter has been situated right on the beach, we have still felt that there has been something missing. We came across Vida Mejor Villas through their website and were very impressed… the private pool being the main selling point for us and on arrival we were not disappointed… it was fantastic! With the added bonus of the spa too made it extra special. The accommodation was superb… clean, light, airy and spacious, but homely, every need is met with the added peace of mind of the properties being very safe and secure. I cannot recommend these villas highly enough! They are in a fantastic location with all amenities; shops, bank, supermarket, beach and bus stop just a couple of minutes’ walk away. We felt rest assured that if we ever needed anything that the owner Carlton would be at hand and help us with anything we needed, as too Peggy, who was also fantastic. Whilst we were on holiday it was my daughters 13th birthday and Carlton had organised for a big, beautiful birthday cake to be delivered on the day!! Which was a wonderful surprise and very thoughtful, and too which made the day that more special. Our highlight would have to be having your own home from home, in particular the computer with 24hr internet access, flat screen television etc. etc. But above all, having your own pool is amazing, and to which makes such a difference to the whole holiday experience. The property is maintained to a high standard and the exterior including pool is set within beautiful surroundings with ample sun loungers and barbeque. This is all within just a stone’s throw away from all you would expect from beautiful Barbados.

We have now found the dream!!! ……..thank you so much Carlton, and we look forward to seeing you in 2013 xx

Amazing Vacation - Villa, Island, Weather!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd trip to Barbados and 2nd time staying at this villa. We arrived for our 2 week vacation to have a beautiful bouquet of flowers and a card welcoming us back from Carlton, the owner. That should be enough to just fall in love with Barbados and this villa!! We absolutely LOVE the amenities, the location and of course Carlton, the owner. Keep in mind, Limegrove Lifestyle Centre (http://www.limegrove.com/exploreLG.php) is right around the corner from the Villas…. If you love to shop – all I can say is Oh My Gosh!!! You have Cartier, Michael Kors, Louis Vuitton… Heaven!! As a family of 4 (2 boys – 1 teen and 1 preteen), we love this villa and the room / space that we have. The open concept is phenomenal as we can be in the kitchen cooking and still talk to anyone in the family room, dining room, pool or on the computer. With the tropical trees and flowers surrounding the villa and pool area is gorgeous. It is so relaxing and truly confirms that you are on vacation! The green monkeys came to visit, which is another favorite of the villa. The monkeys come to grab the mangos and star fruit from the trees surrounding the villas. The maintenance of the house is great – Carlton is around if there is any issues, someone is cleaning the pool and having someone clean the villa every other day was so nice (as sand gets everywhere). Having laundry on site is also such a great amenity. We can't wait to go back next year - and hopefully with several family members!

Carlton - Thank you for all your accommodations and going over the top to ensure our vacation is memorable and perfect.

Barbados Overall - Island, Food, People

Anyone looking to go to Barbados for their first time - you will love it. The island locals are so friendly; the island is clean and has so many beautiful aspects. We went through the Harrison Caves and I highly recommend it. Also - any beach you are going to be amazed by the blue water and the beautiful fish! Those with families stay on the west side as the Atlantic side is very rough and can be unswimmable at times.

The Roti Hut is a MUST. They make AMAZING rotis and it is just south of the villa.

From the dining room, the living room and the kitchen you can see the pool. You walk out of the living room on to the semicircular entertainment patio which has tropical plants on both sides and then on to the pool deck. The entertainment patio is perfect for alfresco dining. The setting on the entertainment patio is unique. You have lush gardens on both sides with humming bird feeders. So when you are not directly in the sun on the pool deck , you can come on to the patio in the shade to read or even sit at the outside table with a beer, rum punch or whatever your heart fancies. Wild green monkeys actually visit some fruit trees close by on a daily basis. They don't come close to humans but can you observe them from the distance and be thrilled by a Barbadian wild life creature.All of our villas were designed by an architectural firm, who designed each one for total privacy i.e. individual separate entrances, separate parking, own pool and spa.
