My family and I enjoyed a marvellous holiday recently at the View and knowing the area well we could not have chosen a better place to stay. The accommodation was exceptionally well suited for our needs and I would heartily recommend it as the perfect holiday apartment.
The proximity of the shops and local restaurants was an added bonus
I know Barbados very well having spent many years holidaying there and going with my family and my baby granddaughter might have been a challenge but we found having the amenities very close and having the privacy of our apartment at Villas on the Beach was absolutely perfect.
Having just returned from here we are all suffering from the holiday blues. The villa is absolutely superb. Location wise you couldn’t be nearer the beach, it is literally on your back door step. Just over the road is Jordan’s supermarket, above that is a chemist and doctors. There is a nice Italian right on the beach about 5mins walk along the sand that does nice cocktails. Holetown is around 5mins on the bus with plenty of bars, restaurants and a designer outlet.
Chestertons were brilliant, they arranged our airport transfers which included a child seat for our 4year old. There was a stocked fridge with everything we asked for (including rum punch) they arranged a cot for our 6month old, and were only a phone call away. We had a lot of questions before we left regarding baby stuff and what to take and what not to take and Sally answered every email very quickly and put our minds at ease.
The villa comes with two staff, June who cooks all your meals and Wendy who looks after the house and you will find it hard to find two nicer people. They could not have made us feel more welcome, they literally became part of the family.
We would hole heartedly recommend Discover Bim Island tours If you want to swim with turtles. Derek and Perry were great hosts on the boat and kept the rum flowing.
I would recommend taking some sort of sea shoes as there are a lot of rocks in the sea outside the villa but you can walk 5mins either way up the beach to find nice sandy access to the sea.
A must is a visit to The Cliff, probably my most favorite place in the world. Lone star is also highly recommend as is "one love bar" in Holetown, and a trip to Oustins on Friday night is going to get your foot tapping and hips a wiggling.
Afternoon tea at Sandy Lane is also rather special.
We would highly recommend this villa and Sally at Chestertons to anyone and everyone.
