Three couples who had a two week stay. The house is situated in a safe peaceful environment. Easy to park outside. Large bedrooms with good bathrooms and showers. Morning breakfast sat out on the rear garden porch and pre dinner drinks on the front 1st floor balcony. 5 mins walk to a great beach at Heywoods. 15 mins level walk to Speightstown town centre along the beachfront to Supermarket, bars and restaurants. Was easy to drive from here around the rest of the Island. Mullins Beach, Holetown, Fish Pot restaurant, bar at Port St Charles all worth a visit. Great communication from host and advice on the house and other places to visit.
Wonderful villa, within easy reach of beach and town by foot. The villa has everything you need. Maria was extremely helpful and on hand if we needed (which we didn't). The location was very peaceful and quiet, we had a brilliant time !
We are just coming to the end of a fantastic fifteen night stay at Stradbally Villa. The villa is a lovely building set in very pretty gardens. It is located in the Heywoods estate in Speightstown, a vey way walk to the beach or into the town for shopping, restaurants and bars. We hired a car, but the bus stop is at the end of the road.
The villa is well appointed and equipped. The bathrooms are very nice and newly fitted. There is plenty of hot water for showers. When you arrive there is a welcome pack of toiletries.
We stayed as a couple, so only used the master bedroom, but all three bedrooms are lovely, light and airy with plenty of storage and hanging space for clothes and their own ensuite bathrooms. We liked the super king bed and balcony in particular in our room. All three bedrooms have aircon.
The kitchen and living space is well equipped as well. We didn’t cook very much, except on Christmas Day and Boxing Day. We did find that the kitchen had all of the equipment needed to cook a full meal. There is a full size cooker, washing machine and dishwasher. The washing machine is fantastic for all the swimwear each day!
For relaxing there are two verandahs. The one off the kitchen is just lovely to enjoy breakfast each day. There is a full dining table, comfy sofa, lounges and garden chairs.
When you arrive you are warmly greeted by Maurice or OB and shown around. They are very helpful during your stay. Maurice fetched us an extra gas bottle which we didn’t need so we didn’t run out over Christmas!
There is a welcome pack of beer, bacon, eggs, milk and bread on arrival.
Such a nice touch after a long flight.
Finally, Maria is very lovely and helpful to book with. Maria responds very quickly to any queries, both when you’re at home making enquiries and when you’re here. With her team of people and their kind and calm approach it makes a holiday very relaxing and enjoyable. Nothing is too much trouble. We’re very much looking forward to our next stay, next Christmas.
This is a fantastic property!.... The villa is extremely spacious and well placed in relation to Speightstown (about a 15 min walk) away.
The villa is immaculate and is located about 150 yards from the Almond Beach Resort (non-guests can purchase a day pass there if so inclined).
The highlight of Stradbally Villa for me is the master bedroom which has patio doors opening out to the first floor balcony. I made a point of opening these doors real early in the morning to appreciate the sunrise. It also is a great setting to enjoy breakfast.
There are en-suite showers in every bedroom and each is air conditioned.
There is a a terrace behind the kitchen which is great to relax on and take meals.
This villa shouts tranquility and is well placed for local transport at the nearby bus terminal. Buses run from here frequently giving access to Bridgetown, the west and south coast of Barbados.
I would like to thank the owners for the opportunity of a week in their wonderful house; which I believe offers excellent value in relation to like Barbados properties. It was with a sense of sadness, notwithstanding a degree of envy!....that we had to leave Stradbally Villa to go home.
This was our third time at this villa and each time has been better than the last. The recent upgrades inside and out, made our stay there more convenient for us. This villa is well stocked with all the necessities a family would need. We absolutely love that it is gated and don’t have to worry about our children outside. Seven min walk to one of the most fabulous beach on the island. I can’t say enough good thing about this villa. We are already planning to go back next year.
We had such a wonderful time in Barbados seeing family. The villa was great and had everything you could ask for. Maria the owner was so helpful and gave us all the information we needed. Plenty of room and all ensuite bathrooms the villa is set in a lovely quiet area 5 mins walk to the nearest beach, which most of the time you had all to yourself, we also rescued some baby turtles which were close to the road. We did hire a car for our vacation, but buses ran regularly at the end of the road to anywhere you want. Also, there is a supermarket close by in Speightstown and some restaurants a few minutes away. The villa has a very pretty garden which is all enclosed, also there is a lovely balcony off the master bedroom. Maurice was very kind and on hand to help us with any problems we had and these were resolved efficiently. We would definitely recommend this villa to anyone coming to stay in Barbados. Maria thank you for our lovely holiday in your beautiful villa we would definitely come again.
