No hesitation to re-book or recommend to others! Great place.
We booked Bougan Villa for a month to spend a little time away from our winter. Having never been to Barbados before we had to rely on online posts and descriptions to choose a place. After much browsing through many sites we found Bougan Villa.
It seemed to fill all of our requirements, a quiet, relaxing, comfortable place where we could live for the duration. We were not looking for the all inclusive type of experience, no need for the crowds, line ups and entertainment. Bougan Villa is located in a quiet residential area, away from the crowds and traffic of the highly populated west coast area.
Instead, Bougan Villa provides a very relaxing, well maintained space with nice open access to the patio, yard and pool. Sun and warmth when we wanted it, a nice shaded lounging area with an overhead fan when we felt like it.
The photos provided are accurate so we didn’t find any surprises when we arrived, as sometimes happens. Our arrival was delayed but the property manager Jan was waiting for us on our arrival and gave us a quick but thorough introduction. During the first couple of days we had a couple of minor issues and Jan dealt with them immediately. So overall, we were very happy with this house and our stay.
A couple of things to be aware of, as stated Bougan Villa is quite a ways from most commercial venues including basic living necessities so a car is required. (you could use cabs for a short term stay) The ocean is near by with several beautiful beach but be aware that swimming at these beaches is not recommended for good reason. Onshore winds are constant around Bottom Bay which keeps the humidity and temperatures at very nice levels but the surf was always too much to go into the ocean. Swimable beaches require driving. The upside of the constant breezes is that we did not need air conditioning once during the month we stayed!
Also, the bbq is a charcoal grill that needs some upkeep. I did a few minor repairs and we used it many times. For those of you who are accustomed to gas grills, be prepared, life is slower in in the islands.
My final comment, (please note, I have no complaints) would be regarding the beds. My wife and I are both quite tall and being from North America where queen and king sized beds are the norm, we found a double to be quite short.
Overall, and excellent choice for a quiet stay! Our whole experience dealing with the owner, Nicola and the property manager Jan was A1.
Schönes Haus, ruhige Lage an der Südostküste
Das Ferienhaus liegt in einer Ferienhaussiedlung (Atlantic Rising) an der Bottom Bay im Südosten der Insel.
Die Fahrt vom/zum Flughafen mit dem Taxi dauert ca. 20 min und kostet 60 US$.
Das Haus besitzt zwei Schlafräume und zwei Badezimmer und ist für vier Erwachsene geeignet, allerdings ist das Doppelbett in dem einen Zimmer für zwei Erwachsene etwas schmal.
Ansonsten verfügt das Haus über ein Esszimmer, eine Küche und ein Wohnzimmer.
In der Küche befindet sich auch eine neue Waschmaschine.
Hervorzuheben ist der Eisspender im Kühlschrank, den wir permanent genutzt haben !
Das Wasser aus dem Wasserhahn ist zum Trinken geeignet !
Einziger negativer Kritikpunkt an dem Haus ist die schlechte/schwache Innenbeleuchtung. Hier wären etwas mehr Lampen (besonders in den Schlafzimmern) bzw. hellere Birnen wünschenswert.
Der Außenbereich wird geprägt von einem schönen, kleinen Pool, der regelmäßig kontrolliert bzw. gesäubert wurde.
Fußläufig zum Haus befinden sich drei sehr schöne Buchten mit regelrechten Bilderbuchstränden:
Bottom Bay, Palmetto Bay (jeweils 5 Minuten) und Harrismith Bay (ca. 10 Minuten).
Die Palmetto Bay ist aber wegen des felsigen Strandbereichs eher nicht zum Schwimmen geeignet. Bottom Bay und Harrismith Bay haben hingegen einen sandigen Übergang ins Meer.
Alle drei Strände liegen an der doch recht rauen (Süd-) Ostküste der Insel. D.h. die Wellen brechen sich manchmal recht stark, so dass das Baden nur für gute Schwimmer möglich ist. Schnorcheln ist hier nicht möglich.
Die Abgeschiedenheit des Ferienhauses bedingt, dass man eigentlich ohne Mietwagen nicht auskommt. Es gibt zwar auf der Hauptstraße (fußläufig ca. 10 - 15 min) eine Bushaltestelle, jedoch ist es sehr zeitaufwändig mit öffentlichen Verkehrsmitteln die Insel zu erkunden bzw. einkaufen zu fahren.
Great Place By the Beach!
We stayed for 10 days at the lovely villa with our two boys (age 5 and 7). Upon arrival, we were greeted and some light groceries were already done for us. Suffice to say, this place is bare. I was a bit surprised as I have done other Home Away places and usually they have sugar, salt and spices. But this place is literally all empty so you will need to buy everything if you plan on cooking like I did.
The pool was great, we had a bit of an issue in the beginning but it was all good to go by the third day and my kids loved it. The pool is a bit small. But regardless, its a great place to cool off. The beach was a short walk away. When we were there, there was enormous amount of seaweed. The waves are very strong as well. The boys played in the sand mostly. However, the best beaches are a drive away and we strongly recommend renting a car.
Over the place was great! We had a great time!
Fabulous!! Highly recommended.
Truly, lovely property! Spent 10 days in Aug/Sept, and has everything you might need to ensure you have a comfortable stay. The pool is the icing on a rather delicious cake - perfect for cooling down on a hot day! Thanks to Jan for helping make our holiday a particularly enjoyable one.
HAD A WONDERFUL STAY.
WOULD RECCOMEND TOA FREIND.
Fantastic place. House had all we needed and a block from beautiful bottom bay beach. However beach is not swimmable - undertows. My only complaint is we had to drive to any swimmable beaches. We spent a lot of time on the terrace and in the little pool after being at the beaches all day. Safe and quiet place. Very enjoyable
Thanks for your positive review, we're glad that you enjoyed your stay.
There are several beaches within walking distance of the villa, the nearest being beautiful Bottom Bay - a few minutes walk from the villa.
If you prefer a calmer sea then Sam Lord's Beach is for you, it is just 15 minutes on foot from the villa. The Northern end of the beach is protected by a natural wall of rocks meaning that the water is very calm and is therefore perfect for less confident swimmers.
The water is crystal clear, the sand is white and in our opinion it is the best beach in the world!
