“Wonderful”
Reviewed March 19, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

We arrived late from the airport and was met by the local rep for the Villa who took us around and explained all. The Villa was clean and tidy with everything we might need. Couldn't get Wifi working but local rep sorted straight away (password was a 1 not an I).
The Villa has no air con but didn't bother us. We kept the fans on and windows ajar so with the lovely Island breeze we had no problem sleeping.
Pool was clean and warm. Kitchen well stocked. Area felt safe.
I would strongly recommend a car and getting a good local map to help discover the local area. The only thing I could possibly think to improve on would be a BBQ.
We enjoyed our stay so much we WILL be returning.

I am sorry to hear you feel the property requires air conditioning, we do not feel aircon is required. There are plenty of fans throughout the property ( five ceiling and 2 standup). The property is regularly intensively cleaned and there are NO areas of mold anywhere in the property, however it is in a sea location which doesn't suit everyone. I was disappointed to receive this review which has been given 6 months after your stay. Extra towels are not promised. Four bath towels and 4 hand towels are provided which we believe are adequate, Jan

... both neighbours extremly nice and introduced themselves and said again if we needed anything just ask .. the villa is set out the way and is in a quiet street right next to the beach.. beach is beautiful .. faultless accomodation and janet has been amazing i had so many questions and worries and requests that she answered and made sure was in place ... i will 100% be booking up again ... and as soon as august .. highly highly recommend clean comfortable and extremly helpful ☺

“A Bajan Gem”
Reviewed July 19, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

person found this review helpful

An idyllic peaceful hideaway for those in search of peace an relaxation. Uninterrupted view of the sea, five minutes walk from several beaches and local "hostelries". A good base for exploring the island, only 30 minutes to Bridgetown by car. We really enjoyed the 4 weeks we stayed there. It could only have been made even more perfect by the addition of air conditioning in the bedrooms.

We have been to Barbados a few times before,using both self catering and all inclusive options.
We normally stay on the busier West coast so this was our first stay on the East coast.We were a little apprehensive as to what we would find.The villa was situated about 15 mins drive from the Airport easily found on the Atlantic Rising complex just a few hundred yards from the beach itself.We we greeted on arrival by John and he explained the features of the villa.Tastfully decorated and clean with all facilities needed for a self catering holiday.The swimming pool was a delight and was cleaned daily by John(He and his wife Jen are the property managers and live just over the road should you need them)We did hire a small car for our 2 week stay and would recommend a car for getting around.We have previously been all around the island so we actually spent more time around the pool than we would normally.It is an ideal location just to chill and relax.We would have no hesitation in recommending this property.

“Home from home with sunshine”
Reviewed February 11, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Staying here for 10 nights . Enjoying the tranquility and peace.
Stayed many times around the island but wanted a complete getaway .
A very helpful john came and sorted the pool out ,other than that our time has been very nice.
A car is recommended,it's not far from the airport and the directions are easy to follow.
All your home comforts are here even a good book and DVDs selection. A bonus is free wifi.
Thank again to janet for helping with the change of nights and john for being on hand to fix the pool over the weekend .

“Beautiful Bottom Bay”
Reviewed January 9, 2015 for a stay in January 2014

We've stayed at Whistling Frog a number of times now and it feels just like a second home to us. Located on the East coast there's a;ways a breeze to keep you cool and to keep the mozzies down. The house is situated about five minutes away from a stunning beach and if you hire a car you can get to the supermarket in about ten minutes.
