“Great villa for couple”

Reviewed February 26, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

Just returned from Barbados Dreaming villa @ Kings Beach Village Mullins Bay, the villa was as described and in great condition. Booking was easy and once booked Ian sent lots of information on the villa and area including directions from the airport, we didn’t get lost once.
Part of Ian’s information pack was how to use air conditioning, cooker, washing machine, TV , wifi and many more all items we used worked well.
The pool was very good and kept very clean the poolside bar was open every day between 11.30 – 8pm Richard the barman was excellent. We hired a car for our 10 day stay this allowed us to visit many beaches on the west coast our favourite is Paynes beach just past Sandy Lane. Also if you hire a car you must visit Cherry Tree hill the views of the East coast are splendid, nice beach to visit on East coast is Barclays Park with miles of sandy beach you can’t swim here because the sea is to rough but a nice place to get away from it all.
I like to thank Ian for the use of his villa which I would highly recommend to any couple who want to do their thing on holiday.

“Relaxation in paradise”
Reviewed October 19, 2013 for a stay in September 2013
 

We stayed in villa 16 at Kings Beach Village in St Peters owned by Ian Abbott who lives in UK and managed by Anita who resides in Barbados. From initial contact with Ian with queries re rental the communication response was extremely efficient with very useful information provided. We booked a number of months in advance and had informative and friendly updates along the way. We arrived late at night so had arranged self entry being given the number to the key safe , Anita had left a torch out for us as there can be power cuts on the island ( only 1 short one in 2 weeks with no issues)Ian had already warned us of this so we had a torch on the Iphone just incase . The villa was extremely clean very well presented and very comfortable. It was very well equipped both for kitchen use , very easy washing machine, dishwasher, cooker, micro if required and great media , TV , HiFI, DVD player, PC , free WiFi, printer ( Ian provides info on inks required so very useful for people on long stays ,it also works remotely eg from your IPad if necessary and we did use it once to print off car hire info as we only booked when we were there and found booking through holidayautos on line was quite a lot cheaper than locally). When we arrived there were 2 refreshing beers, waters and cokes in the fridge ( very welcomed). We ate out on the side area some evenings which was lovely , peaceful and great temperature and very pleasant, we ate out locally too , at times for lunches when we had the car for a week and some evenings. Some examples are Bombas very near to the villas turning left at the main road and about 80 metres on the right wooden coloured red green and gold was excellent , he even made us a fish curry at our request for our last night and the rum and cokes are very reasonable priced and good measures of rum. If you are out and about try a fish cutter at Cuz's fish shack at Needhams point south of Bridgetown, look it up on trip advisor. Crane beach is lovely especially if you like surf you can access by public way or via The Crane if you pay 25 BD per person and you can use this against food/ drink , we ate a couple of times at Carriages there and the food was lovely and staff very pleasant. The Chinese restaurant near the villas made amazing Singapore noodles ( we opted for takeaway and the portions are large). And Café Carisma in Holetown which was already in my saved trip advisor list before I knew it was owned by Anita and her husband - fab mahi mahi and bajan Beef baguettes see trip advisor reviews . For shopping Jordan's is nearby in Speightstown, walking distance for us but wouldn't carry shopping back due to the heat, they have a transport service but you may have to wait a while or catch one of the busses 2 BD or 1 US per journey.
The villa complex itself was immaculate. , many of the villas are on long term lets which results in feeling like the pool is your own or just shared with a couple more people, the pool is amazingly clean, a great temperature to dip into from the heat of the sun, comfy beds to laze on , tables with umbrellas for shade, and a good length for swimming if you have the energy approx 25 metres. The gardens are beautiful and beautifully kept , there is wildlife with birds and sometimes green monkeys can be seen, Fuzzy who maintains the grounds to exceptional standards ( along with a gardener who was on holiday when we were there) is delightful. Would definitely recommend a stay here for a wonderfully relaxing time, it is a gem of a find. PS very comfy 5 ft bed and aircon worked a treat. There are also ceiling fans so options for preference and temperature. We had a clean at end of week one it was spotless and we were left additional toiletries.

“My second visit to this villa - truly special”
Reviewed August 29, 2013 for a stay in August 2013
 

This is my second visit to this wonderful country and a very high end villa – couldn’t believe how well equipped it was, and what excellent quality the furniture, fittings and décor was the first time and it has been updated and made even better. It is stylish and comfortable with a lovely large living, eating and kitchen area which I particularly liked.
The bedroom is cool and relaxing with a lovely light breeze most nights through the shutters on the doors – so much nicer than the air con, although on the two occasions I used this, it was very effective.
The terrace was used every day for eating and relaxing in the evening, and the pool was immaculate. The ground staff were just as friendly and efficient, and did a wonderful job.
Anita the agent and the maid were both lovely, and did a really great job welcoming me back and reminding me of where to go and what to do.
The beaches were lovely - safe, uncrowded and picturesque, and the buses were still great fun and a cheap and easy way to get around.
The local garage was good for odds and ends and I used the free Jordans supermarket bus to get more supplies. There are loads of places to eat and everything is relaxed and friendly.
I will be back, thank you for another lovely holiday.
