I stayed at the Villa Jarrow with a group of friends in September 2011. We had read the previous reviews and were concerned by some of them but thought we would give it a chance....we LOVED it! The Villa is amazing with its stone walls and immense charm. The photos cant begin to describe how beautiful it really is. The Villa is tucked in between two restaurants so during the day you basically have the beach to yourself (with the exception of the local fishermen leaving out in their boats). Comments about the "flotsam" on the beach were lost on us as the only thing we saw was a little seaweed/kelp that gave us the chance to find and help save 8 baby sea turtles! Jarrow is at the very beginning of the St. Lawrence Gap and therefore the perfect location. You can walk the entire gap, to eat, shop, drink or whatever suits you. The Villa is clean and the staff was wonderful. Patrick was more than gracious to us in our stay even making recommendations on places for us to visit and places that we most likely would not have enjoyed. The reviews about the noise can somewhat be justified due to the street however if you have ever been to Barbados in this area you are already aware that everything is on the street unless you are in a stuffy hotel/resort, which is not what the Villa Jarrow is about! If you are a light sleeper, which I am, ear plugs do the trick and that small compromise is definitely worth the pleasure of staying in this gorgeous place! If I get the opportunity to come back I will stay here again anytime as we had the time of our lives at the Villa Jarrow!
