Guest Reviews Little Good Harbour House

Carolyn, thank you so much for sending us to the Little Good Harbor House! Quiet, private, beautifully and elegantly finished…it was the perfect house for our much needed vacation! We really enjoyed it and so appreciate your help and insight in getting us there. We will definitely contact you again and recommend BarbadosBarbados to everyone heading to your lovely island.

I would just like to take this opportunity to thank you Carolyn for all the work you put into finding us the right accommodation in Barbados.  Little Good Harbour House was perfect for us, beautiful villa, right on the beach, with the lovely Alycia looking after us. But even more impressive was your attention to detail, always there when we needed advice/help, nothing was too much trouble for you – even taking the time to show us around other properties for future holidays.

Carolyn, thank you for a great stay at Little Good Harbour House. We much appreciated your welcome and attention during our week at any time, even at night during the power outage.

The villa was beautiful. Such luxurious and well appointed accommodation in a wonderful beachside position. We have experienced many villas in Florida, California and the Mediterranean but this one stood out. It was easy for us to treat the villa with the respect of being in someone’s home rather than in just a rented villa.  Carolyn, you provided exceptional service in finding this property and anticipating and meeting our every need in such a personalised way. You delivered a great break for us in a home you can be proud to have in your portfolio.

Alicia, our housekeeper, spent hours daily providing the level of pristine surroundings that we would normally reserve for a spring cleaning back home! So helpful. Catherine, our cook, was outstanding; not only in her superb local and European cooking but in her flexibility. Together we planned menus early and even on the days when we ate out she was here to lay on a buffet or supper for our return. She would be a credit any household. Congratulations too on finding such caring and capable people to give us a truth taste of Barbados.

Guest Reviews Villas on the Beach 403

Villas on the Beach 403 and Coral were beyond our expectations. The place is so beautiful and so perfectly located that we didn’t need for anything. And Coral was truly amazing – we thoroughy enjoyed and appreciated the care she gave us, the wonderful food she prepared and her company as well. We made the most of our time enjoying and exploring the stunningly beautiful island! The only thing I wish we had was more time to stay on vacation! Thanks again for everything – we hope to see everyone again very soon!

Guest reviews on Palm Beach Condos 302

Thank you Carolyn for all of your help making our visit to Barbados during February 2018 the the best vacation we have ever had. This was our first ever stay at a condo versus hotel vacation and Carolyn landed us on the perfect property for our needs. The Condominiums at Palm Beach #302 was awesome. The pictures on the website are exactly accurate the property is beautiful, quiet, well-kept and spotlessly clean. We especially liked hearing the ocean surf from the large balcony. We loved walking the beach either to the Hilton (softest sand in the world) or on the boardwalk to Rockley Beach. Carolyn helped us with every detail….taxis, tours, dinner reservations, sailing, local customs and more. Simply stated I wish there was a Carolyn everywhere we’ve visited. We will be back. Thank you again.

Carolyn assisted us in finding the perfect rental for our family group in Barbados. She also coordinated with appropriate vendors to ensure that important aspects of our trip were in place before arrival including car rental, and even provided useful information on restaurants and things to on the island. Carolyn also promptly addressed any questions we had once we arrived. Highly recommended!

Guest Reviews Tara Villa

We are now unfortunately back in the freezing cold UK. We really enjoyed our time in Barbados and particularly at Tara. It is a really beautifully kept house and we found the location really convenient. Your help and recommendations were absolutely invaluable so thank you very much.

Guest reviews Schooner Bay 205

Hi Carolyn, we had a lovely time at Schooner Bay 205, thank you. The building was clean and felt safe, our apartment was really lovely, the kitchen was well equipped, the patio was amazing, our housekeeper was very friendly and lovely and did a good job, the staff at the building were super friendly which was nice, having the Bose speaker was a nice perk as I did not bring one! The air conditioning was excellent and quiet, grounds were clean and well maintained – really nice, the key fob/security was easy, the front gate staff were helpful and friendly, the pool was clean and well maintained, the hot tub was empty the first day but back up and running the other days – very nice!

As I mentioned to you we found the master bed hard, although we ourselves have a firm mattress at home.

As for the restaurants we visited:- Scarlet – excellent meal and service, The Lone Star – we really enjoyed our meal here, great, sophisticated atmosphere and a nice night out, better to take a cab as valet parking is crazy, the service the night we went was excellent – very attentive and the food was excellent. The Fish Pot – food was ok, but we would not necessarily go back, we liked other places better. The Lobster Pot – we had a very good experience and nice it was walking distance, we went early as we read they run out of stuff, service was good but slowed down once busy, we found the food excellent. Juma’s – we had eaten here before and stopped in on our first night to try an appetiser, it was not good so we left and did not go back! Nino’s – Italian – went for lunch once day, location is lovely, decor is wanting but the pizza was excellent! Food trucks – we have come to enjoy food trucks. The food truck outside of Jordan’s in Speightstown is there Mon/Tues/Wed – we enjoyed excellent fish cakes on a few occasions and macaroni pie and friend chicken wings! Nice casual inexpensive option to bring back to the condo. Seemed very clean and ladies that worked there were very nice. We also visited the truck across from Sandy Crest – Martin enjoys the liver sandwiches and our cab driver Rodney took us to another one en route to the airport and I had a fantastic lunch for $5.

Carolyn O’Dell at BarbadosBarbados

We booked a villa at Sugar Hill through Carolyn O’Dell and couldn’t be happier with the service. Carolyn was very responsive, helpful and made our last minute trip incredibly enjoyable. We highly recommend her services!

My Wife and I booked with Carolyn this past Christmas at Secret Garden, the place was exactly as Carolyn described it, it was excellent!! The girls who took care of the house keeping and cooking were unbelievable and treated our family tremendously! Carolyn went above and beyond to help us! We booked late and she did everything to get us a place and even worked with the home owner to get us a discounted rate, she also arranged our pick up at the airport and left herself available for any questions we had while there on the island, My wife and I highly recommend Carolyn for your vacation booking she is 5 star plus!!

Having never been to Barbados before I was really struggling as to where to stay. Thankfully I found Carolyn at Barbados Barbados. She was super descriptive in her properties noting all the plus and minuses. We finally decided on a 3 bedroom condo that was perfect. Carolyn didn’t stop there though helping us book a car rental, catamaran tour, airport transportation, things to do and even all of our restaurant reservations. We couldn’t have had a better trip.

Although, I did not get to stay at any of the villas, I have been speaking to Carolyn O’Dell and she has been extremely helpful. I was looking at a villa in Barbados and she answered every single question with full detail. Unfortunately, this did not work with us due to flights and the nightlife in Barbados. But Carolyn is someone who was beyond amazing and if I am ever to stay at a villa in Barbados she is someone I will definitely be contacting!!
