I have found that people tip in so many ways. Personally i do 15 - 20 BDS dollars a day. But seeing as there are 7 of you maybe a bit more due to a the fact a lot more work will be done by them. I don't leave a tip each day but wait till the leaving day.
For 7 of you I would leave at least 45 Bajan Dollars per day divided between them.
I have friends who work in villa who receive tips in the region of $20-$25 USD per day depending on the amount of work done. Sometimes, they earn substantially more in gratuity.
You don't say how long you are staying - (if there are small kids being rather messy?) - maids and housekeepers as mentioned, usually are tipped at the end of the vacation - and, as in a restaurant - depending on the service and how satisfied you were - would depend on the range of the gratuity - however in these difficult economic times -( villa staff are not "well paid" by most property managers) - so any extra generosity would be appreciated.
We stayed in a condo at Sugar Hill a couple of years back and it told us in the guest book how much we were to pay the maid.
Your feedback helps tremendously. Thanks to all for your responses. :)
That looks about right to us Beachandsea - $75 US (not Bbds) per week for the 6 of you - so $150 US for the 2week stay.
