“Clean, comfortable house with great location”
Reviewed March 23, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

The Green Gates House is a wonderful place to stay in Maxwell for a group of 4-6. With 3 full bedrooms (1 room w/ calif. king, 1 w/ 2 twin beds together, & 1 w/ a bunk bed) the place is super comfortable for a group to use as home base while venturing to the beach or around the island. Located near the Barbados beach club, Bougainvillea resort, and Sandals Bahamas, Green Gates is within 10 minutes of the beach at Maxwell or a smaller beach just across the street. There is a bus stop down the block and a convenience store near by. Both Oistins and Dover beach are within a 20 minute walk along the main road. Getting to Bridgetown and the western parts of the island are a bit of a hassle given traffic and the bus system - so definitely worth keeping in mind as you plan your trip - probably easier if you have a rental car which we did not. The house itself is in a quiet, safe neighborhood near some hotels and rental condos. The interior is well equipped with a full kitchen, clean bathroom, and very comfortable beds. The two large bedrooms have A/C while the smaller one has a fan that keeps the place pretty cool. The kitchen is perfect to cook in if you want to eat in as we did for most of our meals. Sharon also provided everything we needed including beach towels and some snacks to welcome us. Sharon, the host, is wonderfully welcoming and made sure everything was set for our trip. She checked in with us regularly and made sure we were comfortable and offered to set up any excursions we were interested in. Overall, I'd definitely stay at Green Gates next time I'm on the island. Sharon did a wonderful job hosting us and you literally can't beat the price. Definitely recommend to anyone interested in a relaxing beach vacation with a wonderful home to make your own.

“Great place to stay for any family”
Reviewed March 17, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We are a young family with two small children that were looking for a family friendly visit on our first trip to the island. Staying at green gates offered everything we were looking for. We walked to Welches beach most mornings, which is a stones throw from the grocery store. The beach was beautiful and usually quite empty. In the afternoons we walked to the beach right across the street from the property. The bus route to fun day trips is just at the top of the street. The property itself was beautiful and made our trip worry free. On top of that Sharon was right there to answer any questions and help out to make our trip memorable. 10/10.

We just returned home after spending 2 full months at Green Gates. We absolutely could not have asked for a better vacation home. Sharon and Peter did such a great job making sure all of our needs were met. Sharon is so professional but also truly concerned about our comfort. The house has everything you need to make you feel like you are at home away from home. Beds are very comfortable, kitchen has everything needed to make a big meal if choose and the yard has comfortable chairs and table along with a bbq. We honestly could not find one thing to complain about. We will be definitely be looking to stay at Green Gates again and highly recommend this wonderful guest house to anyone considering a holiday in beautiful Barbados. Thank you Sharon and Peter for everything. Can't wait to come back!!! Joanne & Andy Simmons

“Just returned from a second stay”

I've just returned from a second stay at Green Gates (1st stay was August 2014) & once again had an amazing holiday.
I would love to rate the house 5 out of 5 but do feel it would benefit massively if AC was put in the bedrooms, other than this the house has everything you need to make it your home for the length of your stay. Nothing is too much trouble for the owners & much to our delight we discovered one of the neighbours makes the most amazing food to sell at weekends, believe me when i say her pizza's are delicious!
Situated in a perfect location with a beautiful, well kept garden Green Gates is just like a home from home & i'm looking forward to many more stays.

Thank you Louise for choosing to return to Barbados and Green Gates, we truly appreciate it. We always listen to our guests and so you would be pleased to know that we have just completed installing air conditioning to the bedrooms at both Green Gates the house as well as Little Gates the One Bedroom Apartment. Yes we just got cooler! Thank you for being amazing guests and we too recommend Elaine's delish cuisine which is delivered right to the house for your convenience. It keeps getting better and better:-
BEACH - check
GREAT FOOD - check
COOL BEDROOMS - check

See you soon.

My experience at Green Gates was wonderful, it was the most enjoyable, relaxing and peaceful vacation with my family, we felt at home with the beautiful surroundings and the great hospitality that we were greeted. Mr.and Mrs. White are so loving and friendly with great sense of humor, they just made us felt comfortable and right at home. It's a vacation we will always cherish and Green Gates has now become our vacation home.

“The Best rental Choise for family”
Reviewed March 23, 2015 for a stay in December 2014

We spend three weeks with family of 4 persons in Green Gates. The booking and paying were very simple and trustable. All information we get in internet was at least in the house when we get there. The house was perfect clean and tidy and all needed were including.

The location is great! It's only about 100m for public transportation, 10m to the beach and By walk distance you have bank, grocery, bar, restaurant, etc. It takes only about 15-20 minutes to Bridgetown By bus.

The neigbourhood is very silent and peaceful so it was a real holiday place for us.
We really can recommend this vacation rental!

“As advertised- Exceptional”
Reviewed February 19, 2015 for a stay in January 2015

people found this review helpful

Stayed four weeks & very impressed. Just as advertised.
Owner Sharon supplied new toaster & coffee within hours of our request. She also supplied folding chairs for the beach, which is less than five minutes away and never more than a dozen people there except for national holiday.
We walked or took a route taxi( ZR), did not need a car. St Lawrence Gap was fifteen minutes along the beach. Happy hour at Bougainvillea Resort or roast beef dinner at Charlies under ten minute walk. A walk to Oistens for the fish fry,fish market or Massey Supermarket for groceries and beer was 25 minutes.
Very quiet and clean. No black dust on the floors like you get around Rockley. No A/C but didn't need it- Fans in every room and a steady breeze off the beach. Yard has patio tables and chairs, hammock and charcoal BBQ. Exceptional holiday.
