“Beautiful, peaceful, heaven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013 for a stay in May 2013
2
people found this review helpful

Had a lovely two weeks holiday with my mum ans her friends in this lovely villa. 5 minutes walk to one of the best beaches which was peaceful and we pretty much had it to ourselves. Many times we walked along the beach to the town. Everything was easy to get to but a hire car is necessary if you want to visit other areas of Barbados such as St. Nicholas Abbey, Holetown, Bridgetown and Bathsheba.

The house itself was one of the nicest in the area. The room i shared with my mum had a balcony which was nice to sit at early morning when having breakfast. Each bedroom had it's own shower room which was a luxury for me. There are mango, coconut and other fruit trees in the garden. The tiny birds were cheeky but so cute a friendly.

We were made to feel very welcome and had a holiday to remember. Off to book the next one now :-)

“The perfect holiday home in the perfect location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013 for a stay in June 2012

We stayed at this house in early June last year at the suggestion of a friend of a friend of the owner. What a wonderful find it was. Our party was two couples who have, in all honesty, worked through the all inclusive beach front holidays and were looking for something more relaxed and flexible.
Haywoods House proved to provide us with exactly what we wanted in that it offered a base from which to explore the island along with being a dwelling where we could lounge around on our less active days.
The house is well fitted out, bright and cool in a quiet area. At least twice a day we would stroll the short distance to the beach, which was always quiet, and then on the short distance to Speightstown which has a wonderful selection of eateries and shops that, whilst Bridgetown is nice but busy, afforded a relaxed shopping and eating experience.
We hired a car throughout our stay but this is not a necessity as the "famous" island bus service, you really have to travel on it to appreciate what I mean by this, operates from Speightstown.
As a group we were so impressed with this house that we have already booked to stay again in early 2014.
If you like to choose your pace of holiday on this paradise island this is the perfect property.

“Absolut;y Lovely very comfortable fantastic quiet area easy to get around”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013 for a stay in March 2011

So close to one of the loveliest beaches on the island, just along the road from the beautiful home. We had a lovely break, loved it so much booked again in May. cannot wait to return. You dont need a car but we hired one as we did like to explore the island. its close to the fish pot for Sunday lunch, and ragamuffins on a Sunday night in Holetown. Speitstown is just about a mile away and the orange grosser is worth a visit for lunch. Loved going to the wild side the Atlantic i think its the east. Where they have the round house and the Atlantic restaurant. And the Crane is definitely worth a visit. Marias home is beautiful has everything you need and everything tasteful clean and airy it was hard to drag ourselves away from the lovely home. You have to experience the buses run by the local Rastas what an experience Not For THE FAINT HEARTED BUT WORTH THE EXPERIENCE. Cannot fault the lovely home we went twice to this house 2011 and again 2012 we are going again in may CANT WAIT

“Really comfortable Villa with all a great holiday needs”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013 for a stay in January 2013

We have had a really great holiday in this delightful villa set in tropical gardens, with the shady bit was really welcome on the hot afternoons. All the rooms have plenty of space and are well kitted out. The bedrooms all have en suite toilet and showers which made getting ready for dinner really easy. Wi-Fi was the icing on the cake! Simon the local agent was really helpful.
The location of Heywards House is ideal being only a 8 minute walk to our favourite beach, just before Port St Charles. The local island town of Speightstown is only a few minutes further and is full of good places to eat and drink and quite a big supermarket used by the locals that is an experience. Everyone we met was cheerful with the standard of service in the local restaurants and bars really good - we left some cards of places we would recommend in the villa. This part of the west coast is great for us as it is not so full of holiday makers and you get to see the real Barbados, yet there are still enough to need good facilities for...in our view a really great base for a really great holiday. We will definitely be back.
