Diana is the hostess with the mostest! Duke the Dog is a happy friendly great big wuss woof. And Checkers the Turtle will change your impression of “only a turtle” forever with her intelligence.
Apartment was clean, beautifully appointed. Bedroom was large, the bed a king and very comfortable with quality linens. Diana had left all sorts of breakfast things so I didn’t have to rush to the store.
A stunning beach is within a 5 minute walk and many other fabulous beaches are a short drive away. Don’t miss a walk along the mighty cliffs of the Atlantic - incredible views.
Eat in or there are many great restaurants also just a short drive, particularly 3 at The Crane Resort following Happy Hour...and happy it is.
I had only one complaint: I had to leave:(. Thanks Diane. See you next time, Roomie!
Diana and Duke were literally the best host ever. From the beginning to end of our stay we were treated like family. The Villa was absolutely stunning. Very clean, modern, stylish, and has all the amenities you need. If you are visiting Barbados this is where you want to stay! Already planning our return trip. Truly, a pleasure to stay with you Diana and Duke! You are an inspiration and a blessing. Sending all the love to you from Ohio. Thank you again for everything!
We had an excellent four weeks in the villa. There is a a private garden with a patio. The refreshing breeze blows through the trees. There are lights in the garden so we spent many evenings sitting outside in the cooler air. The villa is very well equipped. We used the kitchen with its extensive range of equipment to cook both large and small meals. The sitting room has a two setter sofa and an armchair. The shower is large and good quality towels are provided. We loved the bedroom with its huge bed. There are windows on both sides so the breeze blows over the bed.
There is air con and there are ceiling fans.
We loved the dog and the tortoise although they are not intrusive if anyone is allergic..
In our opinion a car is essential for people who want to explore the island. Diana arranged good quality car hire for us as well as taxis from and to the airport. The taxi fare was 25 American dollars.
We have already booked to go next year.
The location is amazing with a stunning very quiet beach (Bottom Bay beach) just a short stroll away.There is a constant breeze to keep you cool and the patios' are perfect for sunbathing.The property itself is furnished to a very high standard and provides everything you could wish for in the kitchen area if you'r self catering.The beds are very comfortable and the solar heated shower is one of the best we have ever tried anywhere in the world.You are provided with clean towels and bed linen when you wish.Outside you have your own very private patio area, with tables chairs and a gas fired BBQ. You also have all day access to a very clean and welcome swimming pool.If you hire a car you can explore anywhere on the island very easily or you can use the local bus and access anywhere on the island for just 74p!( highly recommended).And last but not least is the charming host, Diana and her beautiful, friendly dog Duke.Diana is extremely knowledgeable about Barbados and always there to help if you need her, but never in your face.We miss them both very much.We can't wait to go back again and would recommend without hesitation.Jayne &Mark Johnson.
What a great place! We were a little bummed leaving our last Airbnb because it had such a great view but after spending one night in Diana's place, we didn't miss it for a second! The place is beautifully decorated, clean, and equipped with all the necessities and bonuses to make for a great vacation getaway! We barbecued every night on the gas grill and enjoyed our breakfasts and evenings on the deck. The pool was an excellent bonus, which we got to enjoy during the hot Bajan days. It was such a great location, being only a 10-minute walk to the gorgeous Bottom Bay Beach and a 10-minute drive to the nearest Supermarket. Bottom Bay Beach is a gorgeous, picturesque beach - we explored nearly the entire Island, and this one was honestly one of the most beautiful beaches we found. Swimming conditions are a bit tough but still doable and it's a great place to sit and enjoy the day, plus there's a super cool, huge cave on the South end of the beach that's great for taking pictures or just getting into the shade. Diana had us over for drinks one night and she was such a delight! She was super accommodating, friendly, helpful, and gave us some great suggestions of things to do and places to go. She was always available if we had questions or needed anything. Her dog Duke was so cute and friendly and we enjoyed playing with him around the pool. We even missed our flight out and she was nice enough to give us an extra day since nobody was booked yet. Diana and Duke were happy to have us back and made us feel welcome and at home one more time.
