This West Coast one-bedroomed villa is conveniently located just a moments walk to the main road where you will find the bus stops taking you to Speightstown, Holetown and beyond. Warning: riding on the yellow buses is not for the faint-hearted as they hurtle along at breakneck speed playing loud music as they go! Within walking distance are the beach, a few restaurants and a petrol station with a small supermarket. For more choice of groceries there is a huge Massey's supermarket in Holetown and a Jordan’s in Speightstown though everything is very expensive by U.K. standards.
The villa is comfortable and well equipped. I cannot think of anything we wanted which was not already provided. There was an unexpected welcome pack waiting for us comprising milk, tea, coffee, juice, bread, spread and eggs We mainly ate out but enjoyed our breakfasts on the terrace overlooking the pool and gardens. We were entertained by some lovely birds and one would even eat out of my Husband's hands.
The attractive gardens and pool are well maintained and the staff all very friendly. The one and only criticism, which I understand is out of the owner's control, is the lack of shade when using the sunloungers. Hence we only used them later in the day when the sun had moved.
I must mention Andrea, the agent, who was so helpful. She went the extra mile (actually several miles to the airport) when my Husband could not find his house keys on the day of departure a couple of hours before leaving.. By this time we were at a property on the South Coast and contacted Andrea just in case he had left them at Barbados Dreaming. Lo and behold the keys were found and Andrea insisted on delivering them to the airport whereupon they were handed over to us at the departure gate. Sadly we never met in person but her assistance was greatly appreciated. A virtual bouquet for you, Andrea.
All in all a very nice stay in a lovely property.
Excellent location just a ten minute stroll to Mullins Beach and set back from the busy road so its nice and peaceful. The bed is very comfortable, the kitchen well equipped and the pool is just fabulous, too. Thanks to Ian, the owner and his team of friendly and efficient staff who helped make our stay most relaxing. We have not one single criticism, this is a most beautiful villa in a wonderful position and we highly recommend it.
An excellent 1 bedroom villa on the platinum coast of Barbados for a long stay vacation. Within easy walking distance to Speightstown with a myriad of excellent restaurants, pubs, churches and local shopping. Not many tourist shops here but that is the attraction! This 450 sq. ft. villa is 5 steps to the lovely swimming pool on property with ample loungers. The property is very well maintained with super friendly gardeners, maintenance, security and cleaning staff. It is only a 5 minute walk to St. Peter's Bay a small but swimmable beach. Mullins Beach a 15 minute walk is more active with beach bar, restaurant and loungers and umbrellas for rent. The villa is very well maintained by the owner and the kitchen is fully equipped to prepare even the most sophisticated meal! Best part and very rare for the Caribbean is a dishwasher! New A/C is very quiet and efficient. The large patio out front is where we ate every meal for our 4 week stay as it is covered (for the rain showers) and has lovely views of the pool and vegetation. Hundreds of worldwide stations on the satellite allows you to keep in touch with news and sports from your home country of Canada, UK, or the USA. The owner is very hands on and responds within a day by e-mail to any questions we had during our stay. This truly is a gem of a vacation home!
I would highly recommend this villa, the villa is very comfortable, clean and is equipped with everything we needed and more. The complex is so well kept, the staff there are really friendly and welcoming. We spent a lot of evenings pool side which was very relaxing, the atmosphere is chilled and calm, with visits from the local wildlife, inc monkeys and plenty of birds, we still miss the sound she of the bird song around Barbados dreaming. The villa is on the west coast of the island, I think it took us around an hour from the airport, speightstown is a 15 minute walk and has some great secluded beaches there and great places to eat, Mullins beach is a 5 min walk away, which is busier and has watersports- we visited both but preferred speightstown. We caught the local buses quite a bit which are fast and easy, but to explore the island fully I would say you would need to rent a car to get around with ease. Thank you Ian for making our experience really easy, we would happily recommend your villa.
This Villa is fantastic. Set in beautiful tropical gardens overlooking a beautiful pool. The villa has everything you need to have a perfect retreat on this beautiful island. The owner Ian makes booking this villa so easy. Myself and my wife have stayed at this villa for the last 3 years. We have been coming to Barbados since 2005 and this is by far the best place to stay on the whole island.
Barbados Dreaming is a little slice of heaven on the West Coast of Barbados. The villa is well-equipped and the pool is wonderful. The location is great and within easy walking distance to some excellent beaches (Mullins/Gibbes), bars, and restaurants. We would stay here again here in a heartbeat. Communication with Ian was easy and efficient.
Myself and my wife have stayed at Barbados Dreaming Villa for the last 2 years. We have been going to Barbados for 11 years now and this villa is the best so far. Ian the owner makes everything so easy and provides you with all the information you need. The villa has all the facilities you need with a pool and grounds which are so beautiful. The villa is set in tropical gardens with the Caribbean Sea just over the road. I would highly recommend this villa to all my friends and family. I would like to thank Ian for sharing his beautiful villa with us. We will be back next year. Can't wait
