“Wonderful house in a brilliantly central location”
Reviewed 5 April 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

“Beautiful townhouse, excellent location”
Reviewed 18 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

We have visited Holetown on many occasions and were thrilled with Hillside Villa's quiet location behind the Limegrove shopping mall and within easy walking distance of all that Holetown has to offer including the large supermarket and beach.

Upon entering the villa we were pleasantly surprised by how vast it is - large proportions and very high ceilings. It certainly has the wow factor and is modern and well finished and nicely furnished throughout. The house is well equipped and the microwave, large American fridge freezer with icemaker and washer and dryer in particular were really useful.

We were staying with extended family and the layout of the house worked well for us as we and our baby daughter slept on the top floor of the house, her grandparents occupied the bedroom downstairs and we shared the kitchen and lounge in the middle. That said, although we would love to come back to stay again soon, there were many stairs with no bannisters throughout the house which I think will be too tricky and potentially dangerous when our daughter is walking or for those who are less mobile.

There is plenty of outside space at the property by way of a garden, two balconies and a lovely inside/outside area by the plunge pool ( which was very cold but a most welcome relief from the hot sun).

The owners Amanda and Nigel could not have been more helpful or pleasant to deal with and the management team and maid were also very good. We would certainly recommend the house for its quality of accommodation and location. It was a real pleasure to stay at Hillside Villa.

Thanks guys. So pleased you enjoyed all the house, beach and area had to offer and that the team who look after the house made you comfortable. Your family were great guests to deal with. Good advice on toddlers - it's why we ask anyone booking with children to contact us first because the children's age is, as you say, important. We are about to have a few weeks on the island - can't wait.

Thanks Stephen. Your group was a pleasure to host. As I recall your trip to the Island combined business with pleasure so good we could satisfy both those requirements. I'm sure others will find your really clear description of how the Villa is located, in terms of ease of getting on the beach but also the tranquility and security of being slightly set back (plus of course the overall size and quality of finish) really helpful. Thanks for taking the time to write a review and please do come back anytime.

“Fantastic Town house in great location - Read more for honest report”
Reviewed 11 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

We stayed this Christmas at Hillside Villa at Limegrove this Christmas and had a really fantastic time. I would recommend the Villa, the owners and the management team they have in place.

The villa is behind Limegrove, far enough away not to hear anything or be disturbed in any way but close enough just to stroll there in 60 seconds. From here you can enjoy the local amenities, get on buses to travel or walk to the beach.

The villa is very good, all the bedrooms are well appointed and none of them are "the box room" I would of happily stayed in any of them and not felt I got the wrong room.

The photos are all accurate, I would say the place was 25% bigger and also better than the vision I generated in mind from seeing the pictures.

There is great outside space, BBQ areas, and an outdoor kitchen, which is really very nice and was used more than the actual kitchen.

The laundry room is very good washer, dryer just makes freshening up those shorts and beach towels and nice experience rather than a slog.

We had the odd issue that we needed some assistance from the management company and they where on it, I even rang the owner on christmas day and he answered you can't ask more than that.

These reviews are only useful if you are like minded so for the record we where mixed age group form 28 - 60 we like things to be of high end and good quality but they don't need to be ultra fancy, ultra modern etc. We also do not have any children.

I would note if your hard of walking or have young children note the following, the property is a 3 floor town house, one bedroom on ground floor and 2 on the top, if your on the top you need to tackle 2 flights of stairs, and by design there was not bannister on the left so might not be suitable for young children.

Please note the kitchen has all the required utensils but there isn't anything there otherwise as in a tea bag, salt, pepper etc, which is fine as it doesn't say there is but on a short trip you might want to pack a few every day bits to get you setup and running straight away. Again however in the fantastic utility room there is everything you need for washing etc.

Go and have a good time !

Thanks so much for taking the time to write a review. When you have guests commiting to spend Christmas and New Year in your home it's a big responsibility. It's particularly so in Barbados when the festive period sees airline tickets and property priced at their most expensive. So we are really pleased you and your party had a great time and we are grateful for a review that should help future guests get a feel for the property before they book. We, off course, love the house, and the area it's in, it's just really reassuring when others get the same vibe.
