My husband and I have just returned from spending a month in Barbados, staying at Freights Bay Mews, villa 2. During that time we had various members of our family join us for short periods. The house suited us very well. It is light and airy, and pretty well equipped. The accommodation was flexible enough to cater for young children and older people. It feels secure and private, while being accessible to everything we needed. The garden was a bonus, allowing space for the children to play, and eating breakfast on the terrace was always a pleasure. I think villa 2 gets more sun during the day, which suited us well. It truly felt like a home where we could relax and enjoy our holiday. The location is great, close to Freights Bay and Miami Beach as well as Oistins, which provided all our food through the fish market, fruit and veg stalls and the supermarket. It is also close to Silver Sands, a spectacular beach for water sports. Silvia was always accessible and answered our queries and requests promptly and efficiently. Nothing was too much trouble. She met us at the start of our holiday and showed us everything we needed to feel secure and at home. When we had queries, WhatsApp provided a quick response from Silvia and helpful information. I have no hesitation is recommending Freights Bay Mews highly. We are regular visitors to Barbados and have stayed in many locations on the island and this certainly compares well with many places we have stayed.
I just spent a week at Silvia's villas with a group of nine and we have nothing but great things to say. Pre-trip, Silvia was very helpful in answering my questions and connecting us with our driver Michael. The villas look exactly like the listing and the house is equipped with everything you'll need for the stay from beach towels, cookware, etc. The house is about a 20 minute walk to Miami beach, very close to Ostins and the area was very safe. Michael, the driver Silvia recommended, is a godsend! He was available day or night for any trip big or small, gave great recommendations and I highly recommend using him. Silvia and her husband were also great in answering any questions we had while there and even went the extra mile to bring one of the ladies a hair dryer to use. For a large group, this is the perfect space and highly recommended!
We booked both villas at the beginning of this month and my family and I agreed this was the most fantastic and refreshing experience we had together
The owner Silivia was very kind and understanding and I must say it was an perfect week No complains and I hope to booked again in April next year
SILVIA AND MICHAEL YOU HAVE THE NUMBER ONE VACATION HOME IN CHRIST CHURCH
We had a wonderful stay at Freights Bay Mews. Silvia and her family were very hospitable and responsive, communicating quickly with HomeAway prior to arrival and with WhatsApp during our stay.
We rented both villas, coming in for a family reunion. The place was as per the pictures, spacious, beautiful and very clean. The decor is beautiful – stone, wood, granite, vaulted ceilings - and the open concept made dinner and evenings relaxing and welcoming even with guests from both villas gathering for a lazy evening. It was very safe in the private gated area with security system, as well as peaceful, nestled off a quiet road. In the evenings, we had a wonderful breeze lounging on the beautiful patio floors outdoors, and also indoors with all the doors and windows open. The plunge pool was great for cooling off after returning from a day out. The air conditioners in the bedrooms and comfortable beds were perfect for a quiet comfortable sleep. Appliances worked well – we didn’t use the dishwasher but used the clothes washer and line.
We were also a very short drive (you could even walk) from beautiful Miami/Enterprise beach which is calm and has plenty of trees for shade (with convenient Mr Delicious for lunch rotis or flying fish). It was great for a dip in the morning on the way out for the day, or late afternoon on the way back. Also very close is Oistins fish market for fresh daily fish or Friday’s Fish fry, and Massy supermarket and ATM. Surfing with Boosy’s Surf School is also a short drive away and he’s fantastic.
We would definitely stay here again.
We had a wonderful first, of I hope many more, visit to Barbados and this lovely villa, which was a big part of this relaxing holiday. The decor is high end with attention to details, yet soothing and very welcoming. The fully open concept downstairs creates a great social space and we had many dinners and games nights on the large dining table. The layout of the bedrooms upstairs allowed those of us that needed some downtime, a quiet retreat, and this was ideal for us as we were two small families sharing the house. I loved that we were able to unpack and have room for our belongings without having to trip over them, as often happens to us in hotels. The house is kept meticulously clean and beds were fresh and comfortable, so we had some much needed wonderful nights of deep sleep. Our host was wonderful, I felt that she was ready to help us with whatever we needed to ensure a pleasant stay, our only hiccup, in an otherwise perfect holiday, was lost luggage due to a mix up in Toronto, and Silvia made herself fully available with assistance to get the luggage as quickly as possible. The location was perfect, since it was a 5 min walk for our avid surfers to catch some waves before breakfast. It's a quick drive to all the wonderful treats of Oistins passing a number of lovely beaches, an ATM and a great supermarket which had everything we needed and more (the local products are far less pricey and a healthier option). Also its a 15-20 min drive to the airport, which is great for an early morning flights. For people who don't mind a healthy amount of daily walking, this can be done, but to fully experience the wonderful sites and beaches Barbados has to offer I would recommend a car. I found the Bajan drivers very courteous with their honks to let you know they are passing and flashing lights inviting you to make the turn when the traffic is heavy. I highly recommend this villa and looking forward to staying again!
