“Faultless house, brilliant location”
Reviewed October 11, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Just returned with a party of 5 from a week's stay in Holetown, Barbados and the house was without a doubt a great find.

It felt more or less like home with everything we needed. Cleaning products, towels, washer and dryer, kitchen utensils/appliances were all provided plus more; you literally only need to sort out food and drinks.

The place was kept very clean and we had a friendly and helpful housekeeper who came over twice in the week. The ONLY thing I can fault is that the dishwasher stopped working during our stay. Also it would've been nice if there was air conditioning outside of the bedrooms. There are fans around the whole house so that wasn't too big of an issue. The house management team weren't more than a phone call away if we had queries or concerns.

Location is great as a supermarket, off licence, restaurants and luxury shopping is a stone's throw away from the house. We took trips into Bridgetown and Oistins from the local bus stop; buses run quite frequently.

Would definitely recommend this place and will be visiting again.

Thanks Chleo for such a lovely review - so pleased you had a great time. And thanks for mentioning the housekeeper and management team who we think are ace but they will appreciate hearing that from you. Please do come back and stay at Hillside again; amongst everything else you liked you'll find a new dishwasher which is being installed this week.

“Ideally located comfortable house with every amenity”

We recently returned from a 2-week holiday to Barbados and couldn't have been more thrilled when we arrived at Hillside Villas knowing it would be our home for the duration. As stated in previous reviews, the house delivers everything required for a perfect self-catered holiday, but the two primary benefits for us were location and value for money. Having two older children who these days prefer to have their own room whilst on holiday, Hillside Villas provided the space, privacy, convenience (and fast Wi-Fi!) that most hotels can't. However, we still enjoyed some hotel perks, such as maid service every other day, and were spoilt for choice by the plethora of amazing restaurants within very close driving distance. Lastly, but by no means least, the amount of information provided by the owners Mandy and Nigel to prepare you for your time on the island, plus the friendly welcome and hospitality provided by the property managers, Kathy and Solly, was unmatched in our experience.

Hi Nicola. Before even replying to your review I see two people have found it 'helpful' so thanks so much for taking the time. Kathy and Solly are old family friends and it's fantastic for us - and for our guests because they won't ever let them down - that they also provide a great property management service. Like you we have two elder children - now young adults - and that was a factor when we chose the house: space for everyone to have their own space but also some big communal living areas where we can all kick back. Please do come back and stay again!

“Beautiful modern villa with pool in fabulous beach/town location.”
Reviewed August 26, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

people found this review helpful

Our family of 5 stayed in this villa in Holetown for a glorious week in August. The villa itself is beautifully light, spacious and airy and extremely tastefully decorated. All conveniences are there from super-quick wifi and A/C to beach towels, bbq and large screen TVs (with Netflix!). The beds are comfortable as are the many outside lounging areas. There is lashings of hot water in the en-suite shower rooms. The glass doors allow simultaneous views of the pool and garden to the rear and monkeys gambolling on the grass to the front. It is so quiet and peaceful. Yet the best part is the location. No need for a car. We took a taxi once and the local bus service twice. Everything is a short walk away from Louis Vuitton and Cartier to a large supermarket, beach, cinema and many restaurants and beach bars. There are glorious walks to be had along the beach as well as catamarans, jet skis, banana boats etc for hire.
It was such a pleasure returning to 7 Hillside Villas after a sun and sand filled day. Kick back and enjoy!

We had a fantastic time in this outstanding property. We dealt with Amanda via eMail and text as she was abroad but everything worked perfectly fine. There is a local contact in case anything is needed. The property itself is just behind Limegrove Mall so you have a 3 minutes walk to the Mall, 5min to the supermarket, 5min to the 24h Gas Station and most importantly a short walk to the beach and those many beach-bars and restaurants as well. Beside having many good food options close the house itself is in a very quite area. We had 2 couples and one single and the house is absolutely big enough for it. 3 spacious bedrooms all with aircon and fan. The house feels like a home with very good design and quality. The staircases are open which you might want to consider if travelling with kids. The house is fully equipped like a home, really nothing was missing at all. Thank you very much for a wonderful time in Barbados, we will definitly consider to come back next year.

Lutz, thanks so much for taking the time to write a review. You and your group were a pleasure to have stay and on the island to play Polo - so it's great you were close to the pitch at Holders as well as all Holetown had to offer. Do come back next year.

“Classy spacious property with a great "at home" vibe (& a handy location)”
Reviewed April 20, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We stayed here as a group of 4 for 10 nights. It proved a brilliant alternative to the increasingly fancy but ultimately ubiquitous hotels that ring the Barbados west coast. The thing that really struck all of us was how quickly we settled in. From the property description we expected it to be pretty impressive & it was but it immediately felt like we were home - lots of art work, books, magazines, DVDs etc & equipped for living in, rather than just staying in. Having bedrooms on separate floors (each with its own huge walk in shower & bathroom) gave us privacy & there was loads of lounging space to chose from, including the plunge pool area & big terraces front & back.
We loved the peace at the end of the day, returning for a dunk in the plunge pool & a gaze at the stars after our sunset cocktails & supper on the near by beaches. Several times we made use of the jumbo BBQ & cooked local fish at home. The mornings were even better, watching the hummingbirds & the antics of the local monkey troupe at the front of the house while we had breakfast on the terrace. The location was also a plus. Just a short walk to local beaches & the fun of 2nd street & minutes from the flashy new Limegrove mall but away from the noise & hustle.
What really made it was staying somewhere owned by people who clearly love the island & know it well. Their Big Black Book was filled with local hints & tips & made sure we didnt waste a moment. We quickly found the best places to eat, drink, swim & watch the sun go down & every one of of their suggestions delivered. Perfect!

“Wonderful house in a brilliantly central location”
Reviewed April 5, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Not our first time in Barbados but first in this area and in a private house rather than a hotel.
Altman villa rentals arranged our transfers and as the outbound flight was diverted and delayed by 22 hours, they were quick to keep in touch and re-arrange the transport.
The House -
What more can I say that has not already been said...
Perfect accommodation for 2 adults and 3 daughters (19-23).
Great relaxing holiday in a beautiful house, tastefully furnished and we appreciated
the bonus of great technology.
No car hire is necessary as Bus and Taxi's are easily available and half the fun.
Nigel and Mandy (the owners) were more than you could hope for with prompt communication
and excellent recommendations (many of which we enjoyed) for exploring Holetown.

We took the Hobbicat trip with Brian, which was great suggestion, swimming with Turtles and snorkelling over a shipwreck. We were dropped at the beach by 'Lone Star Restaurant ' but took Brian's recommendation of Fish & Chips at Ju Ju's Beach Bar which was delicious and the right choice as having been in the sea were not appropriately dressed for more formal dining.
Cafe Bar Carizma in the Chattle Village is a good spot for Lunch. Tues and Thurs they remain open in the evening with live music, unfortunately we were unable to book as they were full.
We whole heartedly agree with all the previous visitor reviews and would happily go back tomorrow.

You really made the most of your time on the island. So pleased the recommendations paid off. Being dropped off, on Lone Star Beach from the sea, is the way to arrive! And great you used the Z Vans and Buses to get around: all part of the experience. As I recall the one thing you wanted to check, when you booked, was that the house got plenty of sun - both in the morning and afternoon - which it does - and now I see your 'Tanaholic' user name I understand why!

Thanks Colin, so pleased you and your family had such a good time - please do come back and stay with us again. Based on your feedback, we've put some big comfortable sofas on the front balcony so you can spend any part of the day relaxing in the sun. And really pleased you were able to see so much of what the area and island had to offer in such a short period of time. Hope the rest of the year is kind to you. Mandy
