What can I say about Emville. The Husband and wife owners are two of the niceness people I have every met. I have a friend his has been staying there for 9 years. Yes that long he practically lives there. Lol. The Atmospheres is great. It’s like you’re at home. It’s right on the bus route. Once you get over... More

I stayed in the upstairs room with Isolde for two weeks and I can only say that everything was great!! You'll be in safe hands at Emville, Isolde was so kind and helped me a lot with good tips on where to go, what to see, how to go etc. The place is very clean and nice - you get... More

The place is CLEAN and QUIET! What more can you ask for? Not too far from the beach and oistins and st.lawrence gap-walking distance! The owners are friendly and they make you feel welcomed! I loved my stay there and trust me the next time I visit Barbados I will be going back to Emville!

I have stayed twice now at the clean/tidy 'Emville' Guesthouse and my title says it all for travellers on a budget. The location is perfect for several of the prettiest/quietest beaches on the island and if you like walking it is within distance of St Lawrence Gap and Oistins' fish bar and if not; buses stop right outside within minutes...

Emville is simply the best value in the Caribbean. It's not a five-star hotel, but if you are budget-conscious, you will truly have a home away from home. I have stayed there twice and enjoyed both times immensely. You can walk to the beach and to the Oistins Fish Fry, or catch a bus to anywhere else on the island;... More

I stayed with Isolde and Gregory for 9 days in the upstairs room. From the moment I had made my initial enquiry through to the day I left I was thoroughly taken care of. Isolde was like my own personal concierge, organizing car rental, suggesting places to eat, drink and check out. Her and Gregory were able to suggest places... More

Myself and my family (10, including my partner, children, grandchildren) stayed at Emville, occupying both the guesthouse and the apartment. We found Isolde and Gregory to be very friendly, helpful and informative regarding local bars, restaurants and beaches. Located near to Oistins, St Lawrence Gap and also not too far from supermarkets and banks. Buses and ZRs ran frequently passed... More

The 2nd year I am staying at Gregory/ Isolade's Guest House for a duration of 2 weeks , I have got to say that it really is home from home. The house is spacious and very centrally located to Oistins, Bridgetown, St Lawrence Gap and lots of local beaches. The only negative is that I always get eaten by the... More
