Guest reviews Alila Villa

Hi Carolyn,
Just wanted to say a big thank you for helping us to organise our trip to Barbados. We had a lovely time and Alila Villa was amazing, a real gem. Chef Paul’s cooking was wonderful as was Jasmine’s housekeeping. Tutch Spa provided an excellent service, we had them back again at the villa during our stay. We will sure be back to visit Barbados again.

Our stay at Alila has been absolutely amazing. We have all been looked after by Jasmine and Paul. Paul your food has been incredible. Your rum punch was definitely the best we’ve ever had. Jasmine thank you for taking care of us. You both have made Alila feel like home. Alila is just so beautiful. We will definitely be back soon.

The villa is beautiful. Paul and Jasmine looked after us very well. The open concept in the middle is just wow! For a family vacation we had a great time. The beach was beautiful too. The chairs were free and no hassle to get any. The rum punch was great too. We had a fantastic family vacation.

What a wonderful time we had in this beautiful villa! A special thanks goes to Paul, Jasmine and Kim. Paul for his scrumptious food! Jasmine and Kim for all their hard work, nothing was ever too much for them. We loved spending Christmas holidays here and we enjoyed sharing the villa with local monkeys. Just don’t feed them!

Such an amazing place – we thoroughly enjoyed every minute. Paul’s food was delicious and Jasmine’s housework was impeccable. It gave us the feel of Barbados and we are stop thrilled to come back. The atmosphere and maintenance was all down to Paul and Jasmine. Thank you.

What an amazing villa. We have had a fantastic time here. All I can say is Paul and Jasmine have been so welcoming. They really could not do enough for us. Nothing was a problem for them. We wanted to eat out in some restaurants but after tasting all Paul’s cooking we knew we had the best chef here. The villa is kept immaculate, so clean and spotless. Such a beautiful place to relax and just chill out. Cannot say thank you enough to Paul and Jasmine for making our visit perfect. Can’t wait to come back again.

Guest Reviews of Palm Beach Condos 502

Thank you so much for making us feel so welcome in your beautiful country.  The delicious things you sent to greet us, were much appreciated.  The condo was impeccably clean and met all of our expectations.  The view from the unit’s terrace where we enjoyed our morning breakfast is not only beautiful, but a perfect way to get rid of any trace of stress.  The kitchen is very well equipped.  Maybe just a friendly suggestion… in case of a future rental to two couples, the bed in the other bedroom is rather small for a couple, but, anyway, both beds were extremely comfortable.  Sean our taxi driver proved to be reliable and friendly.

We had a wonderful time in Barbados and with our family there, and returned relaxed, nicely tanned and with beautiful memories.  What else could we wish for?

Thank you Carolyn for your help with so many nice suggestions regarding places to visit and good restaurants.  You are very professional and your hard work is recognised and much appreciated.  We will definitely keep the Palm Beach Condominiums in mind if we stop by Barbados again.

Guest Reviews Marsh Mellow villa

Hi Carolyn, I just wanted to thank you again for all your assistance in helping me plan our trip to Barbados. We had a wonderful time.  I actually came to appreciate the short rain spells that came through to cool us down and wouldn’t hesitate visiting that time of year again! Our accommodations were beyond believable, for us simple folks from Seattle anyway, lol.   We ended up spending more time at the Villa than originally intended because it truly was a little slice of paradise, far beyond anything we ever though we would be able to experience.   (more…)

Guest Reviews Beacon Hill 305

From the moment I sent my inquiry to Carolyn I received nothing but exceptional service. Carolyn takes the time to understand exactly what your needs and wishes are and then turns the information into an outstanding vacation. Her recommendations for us to stay at Beacon Hill Penthouse was thoughtful and met all of our asks. Close to the beach, pool, lot’s of space, comfort and a great kitchen to cook in. Truly, there was nothing I didn’t like about the location and villa. It was homey and comfortable, as 4 adults, we definitely were not tripping over one another. We enjoyed the rooftop pool daily – it was a bonus that we had it all to ourselves. The location is quiet. Mullins beach is directly across the street and was literally a 2 minutes walk door to ocean! We had a car and I would highly recommend one to get around. We were fairly close to Speightstown and we were able to do some grocery shopping and sample the beach bars in that particular area. Wanda, our housekeeper was excellent. She does an outstanding job at keeping the place organized and spotless. This place is CLEAN! Carolyn checked in on us and made sure we were good. She really is outstanding in her profession. I will definitely utilize her services again and I’ve already recommended her to my friends and family. Thank you for a wonderful time!

Beacon Hill 305 Penthouse is a perfect location, close to stores/restaurants. Gorgeous property with luxury and comfort. Excellent service. We liked the choice of two rooftop pools, one smaller and one a little bigger. Kitchen had everything to make great meals. The view was breathtaking and we watched the sunrise and set every day. The security of the building was top notch. We felt very safe and comfortable. It was very quiet and tranquil. Both Carolyn and Kerri were very professional, caring and attentive to our vacation and our needs. Just lovely to work with. I highly recommend this property to anyone.

Guest Reviews Reeds House 10

We have just returned from the most incredible holiday staying at Reeds House 10. The apartment surpassed all expectations and I am almost not wanting to write this review so that we can keep it a secret.

We booked through BarbadosBarbados and Carolyn provided us with fantastic service from our initial booking up until our arrival and throughout our stay. She was happy to organise absolutely everything and provided us will lots of tips so that we didn’t miss out on anything during our trip. She checked in on us and was always on hand if we needed anything. The apartment was absolutely stunning with the best view I have ever seen, I could have sat there 24/7 and never tire of hearing the waves crashing onto the shore. It was so well equipped that we hardly wanted to go out.

As for Gillian, our lovely Housekeeper and amazing cook, she also made our stay, she cooked us some fabulous local Bajan food and looked after us the whole time, she was an absolute star.

We will never forget our holiday at Reeds House, we will definitely be back, it was one of our favourite holidays and we will never forget it.

We were lucky enough to come across Carolyn when we were looking to book accommodation for winter 2021. She was instantly warm, friendly, efficient and professional. We found the perfect apartment, after she had taken us to see some suitable options. To our great regret, Covid 19 intruded to force us to cancel and Carolyn dealt with this brilliantly. We have already received a refund, with no problems at all. When the picture has cleared we have every intention of asking her to help again.
