“palm villa private paradise”
Reviewed June 8, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Well we stayed at palm villa for our honeymoon which was perfect. we arrived at the villa via a transfer which Linda had organised for us, We were welcomed by Janice the very friendly and helpful house keeper. Immediately we were overly impressed with the place.

It is a very spacious property which is beautifully decorated and filled with everything you need for a comfortable stay . Linda will make contact with you and will always make herself available if you need any further information or help from her.

The surrounding garden makes for a peaceful private stay allowing you to unwind and relax. There are beautiful little suntraps surrounding the property to just sit and sun bathe. There is a large barbecue under a large canopy at the rear of the property with very comfortable patio furniture which makes for a fantastic spot to enjoy an evening meal or an early morning breakfast.

The kitchen boasts a large fridge, oven and microwave. A large blender makes it easy to make pina colada and daiquiries and the cupboards are stocked with all the utensils you could ever need. The beds are beautiful to sleep in and the air con is a dream for those warm evenings.

A ;lot of thought has gone into the villa to make it a home from home and i would go as far to say that "the villa is as thoughtful as the lady who owns it".

Just a short walk from the villa ( around 5-10mins) there are the local shops and Beach house which you get full access to. Being as you get access to the beach house pool area which is member only you can relax as it doesn't become full to capacity. There are plenty of sun loungers and sea views and the staff a very welcoming and friendly.

We took a ride out with Karl who owns his own boat (The Flying Dutchman) We
spent two hours the first time we went out and just under three the second time.
We left his card in the collection of cards in the local information at the villa.
He was fantastic we got to swim with turtles we snorkelled over ship wrecks it was great. He provides drink but no food. Shabba, Karl's boat hand is a very helpful and informative man. I would highly recommend them, Karl will occasionally walk down the beach past the beach house be shore to look for him.

I would say to visit zaccios on an evening for drinks, beautiful to watch the sun set and the staff are very welcoming and friendly. follow this by a walk up the beach to surfside for a nice open air drink.

The local supermarket is closed and being rebuilt at present but do not worry if you haven't hired a car or you are not confident enough to drive there at first. there is a shuttle bus stop between the building site and the rubis petrol station it takes you to the supermarket at warrens and when you are done it will drop you back to your door.

Just be sure that what ever you do whilst you are in barbados you go and see barbados. Its beautiful and deserves exploring.I cant believe just how amazing it truly was.

Before i went to barbados i said it was a once in a lifetime holiday. before i left barbados thanks to Linda, the villa,the people, i swore id have to go back!

I would highly recommend palm villa and hope to visit there again soon.

Thank you Linda and thank you Janice X

“A beautiful home from home in quiet location”
Reviewed April 5, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

We have just returned from ten days in paradise!
Firstly, I have to say that dealing with Linda was a pleasure from start to finish. She was always available if needed, and arranged our lifts from and to the airport for us. She also checked with us regularly to see if we needed anything.
This villa is perfect for a home from home holiday. It is spacious, light and airy and beautifully furnished.
There are mosquito and security grills on the outside of all windows which means that you can leave all of the windows open day and night. This gives a lovely airy feel to the place and gives nice through breezes.
The air conditioning in the bedrooms is very efficient and the beds are very comfortable so we slept so well!
The outdoor spaces are very private, except from the occasional visit from the friendly monkeys which is amazing. They visited us twice around breakfast time.
The friendly housekeeper, Janice, visits twice a week to change beds and towels etc. There are plenty of towels provided including beach towels. This villa actually has all the amenities you need.
The access that is provided to the Beach House is what makes this extra special. The Beach House is about a 15 minute walk away, but it is an easy walk. The access provides you with the use of all facilities at The Beach House so you have sun beds and shade and free iced water. There is a bar to buy drinks, and a restaurant for lunch and dinner. Also showers and changing rooms with lockers should you need them. We felt quite happy leaving our belongings out when we went for lunch or in the sea. It is a nice place, solely for use by members. The best part is the beach! It is particularly quiet and the water is beautiful here!
The villa is situated in a quiet backwater, next door to a small hotel, whose pool we used on one occasion after checking at reception that it was ok to do so.
There is a nice little cafe, a few shops and the bus stop within a 5/10 minute walk, and then the main supermarket and restaurants are about a 15 minute walk. Everything is within easy reach.
We used the buses on two occasions. We went to Bridgetown on the blue bus, and then rode the yellow reggae bus to Speightstown which is an experience not to be missed!! You need the correct money, but it is only 1US dollar per person per ride. Amazing value.
The locals are all very friendly and we always felt safe.
We only have positives to say about this villa and holiday. Thank you Linda!

“Fabulous quiet location”
Reviewed March 22, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

Palm villa is beautiful and we were really well looked after, throughout our holiday. The free passes for the beach house were a bonus ( we went there a lot!), but it is advisable to do the 10 minute walk there before the sun gets too hot!
The villa is well equipped, with really comfortable beds and there is an Indian restaurant just down the road which was useful!. The hotel staff next door were very helpful too!
The nearest supermarket is about 15 minute walk away however they do a great free shuttle bus to get you and your shopping back to the villa!

“Superb!”
Reviewed May 15, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We spent two weeks in this excellent villa.

From the time we booked, Linda ( the owner) has been so very helpful. She helped arrange not only transport to and from the airport, food when we arrived, but tickets for the cricket! She contacted us just before we left and whilst we were away to check all was well. I felt totally confident that had we a problem she would have sorted it out.

The villa is very comfortably and tastefully furnished with ample space for four adults. There are two seating areas, a very spacious terrace area ( partly covered) with a dining table, BBQ and sun loungers, a well equipped kitchen and laundry area. The bedrooms, both en suite, were very comfortably furnished with ample storage and air con. There is good WiFi, free local telephone calls, satellite TV and CD player.

The villa is a 10 min walk to the beach, beach house, shops and restaurants. The walk is pleasant and flat. The beach house is excellent with a great pool, lots of sun loungers and access to the beach. We did not have food or drink at the beach club, but there was a restaurant and bar on site and plenty of places very close by. We regularly enjoyed happy hour at Zaccios which was a 2 minute walk along the beach.

There are plenty of places to eat as well as plenty of shops, banks and a large supermarket all within an easy 10 min walk. You do not need a car as there is an excellent, very cheap and very frequent bus service less than a 10 min walk away.
.
I highly recommend this very comfortable and spacious villa for a relaxed holiday in Holetown.
