1st experience at a guesthouse. And boy was I glad I tried it... a little leary about sharing intimate facilities with strangers, such as the bathroom. But once you get over that sense of personal entitlement then you are good to go! In fact, since I had visited after a major festival- Cropover-the island had quieted down so much, that... More

This was my first trip to Barbados so my first stay at Emville guest house. I normally stay at guest houses when traveling as I find them more relaxing, along with the budget aspect in mind. Emville didn't disappoint on either of these factors. Isolde and Gregory are wonderful people, and I enjoyed both their company when they were around.... More

I have visited Barbados three times the last few years and always have stayed at the Emville Guesthouse. There is a reason it is #1 in the Christ Church Parish......they are called Isolde and Greg! From the moment you arrive they make you most welcome. Their knowledge of the island is second to none and they are always most happy... More

Come as a stranger and leave as a friend. Isolde and Gregory, two wonderful hosts, made my holiday in this fantastic guesthouse a very special one. Always friendly and helpful, we've received precious advice about Barbados and shared good times. The guesthouse itself is spotless clean, rooms are big enough and lovely decorated together with good shower facilities. This place... More

This is a good value place if you are trying to travel on a budget in Barbados. It's well located on the main road to catch buses and near to oistins. There's everything you need to self cater with a couple of supermarkets near. No aircon but a good fan. Isolde and Gregory are really nice hosts. Not posh but... More

The price is very reasonable and the location is great, it is quite but also very close to the beach, the fish market, the capital and all other tourist areas. The house is simply amazing, I stayed on the first floor where there is a... More

I selected Emville Guesthouse for the good reviews, the convenient price and the location. And I didn't go wrong at all! I stayed in Isolde's guesthouse upstairs: big, clean, bright, comfortable. I shared kitchen, toilet and shower with her without any problem. The veranda is shared with the people in the studio, which was also fine. Having meals and relaxing... More

Emville Guesthouse has got some nice, wonderful rooms, a big livingroom and a comfortable kitchen that satisfy all your needs! It´s got a wonderful green garden and is located a few minutes from a lovely small shelly- and palmbeach. In the naborhood (Oistins) you get fresh fish at several small fishrestaurants.
