We have visited Barbados many times over the last 30 years. This however was our first visit staying in St. Philip. It was a family vacation with our adult children, their spouses, and two grandchildren. The house was spectacular and the weather and vistas were stellar. Kevin, the owner checked in with us to make sure everything was as it should be. Bert, his on site manager was very attentive throughout our stay without being intrusive. Jackie across the street cooks a mean Marlin fish or Chicken dinner negating the need to go to Oistins for the fish fry,,, cheaper and better. Her Karaoke night on the Errol Barrow holiday was special. We discovered our Son-in-law was a closet Rock star as the crowd went wild with his renditions of "Home for a Rest" and "Island Song". Beer is a very important staple and Jackie supplies it either by the bottle, or by the case at very competitive prices.
The "Big House" as we called it was phenomenal. Spotless and yes BIG. Although we were four couples and two children we never had a sense of being on top of each other. 4 of the 5 bedrooms have large private balconies three of which face the sea. We did find the one bedroom facing the street without air conditioning was rendered too hot to sleep in.
The Kitchen is very well appointed with modern gas appliances and ample pots and pans. We had several memorable BBQs on the Weber grill and roasts in the convection oven. Our meat we brought from Canada was our best decision as we have found Beef, Pork, and Ham here very expensive. Ensure however you acquire a Ministry of Agriculture permit to do so.
As beautiful as the house was, we spent all our time outside by the pool, or on the balconies enjoying the cool soothing trade winds and the stunning ocean views.
The kids loved the farm animals in the field next door. There were cows, sheep, a pig and her piglets. The cow and sheep would occasionally visit and graze in the backyard by the pool. There were lots of monkeys, cats and dogs and a lone mongoose.
Our last night we went to the East Point Bar and grill . There were seventeen of us and the food was delicious and the service gracious and prompt. At the end of the evening we were personally escorted through the fields back to the house under a starlit sky with the ever prominent constellation Orion guiding our may.
In closing, the village of Marley Vale is quaint, its residents delightful, and at times lively. We will be back!
We had an awesome time. The property and its location made it such an enjoyable vacation.
Awesome time! Thank you Kevin!
Absolutely wonderful, peaceful and relaxing
Had a wonderful stay in this very clean, marvelous villa. The views are stunning, the home is perfect, and the locals are top notch. Would highly recommend this villa to any group or large family. Got to know the local area on foot as well as navigating the roads in Barbados. Loved having the privacy away from the craziness of the cities, and only a short drive to pick up amazing food, fresh fruit and local cuisine. Every day a glorious ocean breeze came through our balcony doors and windows. Truly loved the local animals that entertained our morning coffee. From goats, cows and monkeys it was always a surprise as to what we could watch over breakfast.
Perfect week away!
We really enjoyed the stay! 5 massive clean bedrooms with bathrooms worked really well for us! It is a bit far from the city but $1 exciting bus ride will take you there in about 45min. Jackie's bar and the East Point Grill are very close and very convenient when you don't fancy cooking.
Make sure you stock up on mosquito repellent and after bite remedies as those little bugs can be a real pain.
The pool and the view is amazeballs! Nothing more relaxing than getting a glass of rum by the pool watching the fireflies and listening to the waves in the evenings!
We had some funny visitors like monkeys, lizards and local sheeps but none of them would get in the house.
Bert was very helpful, on time and full of good information and advice.
