Weeklong birthday trip
We stayed six nights at Orion’s View. The property was lovely, with the exception being the mosquitoes were out of control! No matter how much DEET spray we used, some of us were eaten alive. We did ask the house manager (Bert) about mosquito netting for the beds, as there are hooks above each bed, and he said that people took them down as it made the beds too hot to sleep. Would have been nice to have the option, but we mostly survived. One of our friends checked out and went to the crane for the last two nights of our stay.
Pool was lovely and refreshing, and we spent a lot of time in it.
Kitchen is well equipped, we were able to find everything we needed to create meals. Though if you didn’t feel like cooking, Jackie across the street is available.
Owner, Kevin, is responsive to emails and made the process so simple. Thank you for sharing your gorgeous home with us. We plan to return!
I would like to thank Kevin for allowing us to use his home. Bert met us at the airport and took us shopping, we then got to the villa and wow what a place, the people in the neighbourhood were all friendly and offered advise on where to go. The island is a place of dreams and would definitely go back to Barbados and stay at Orions View. Thank you again for the use of your amazing house. 😁🌞
It is true - if you appreciate amazing views, friendly people and space designed to maximize the beauty of the place, you will appreciate this house. Having private bathrooms and views from each bedroom was the icing on the cake. We hated to leave but hope to return!
Beautiful East Coast
As other reviewers have noted, transportation (taxi, rental car or bus) will be required. Bert (the house manager) greeted us at the airport, there was a bit of confusion regarding our pick-up and our transport to the rental, but once sorted it was all ok. Bert waited at Grocery store with us which was perfect.
The property is as advertised. It's in a quiet, rural residential setting, approx 20 minutes drive from the airport. Upon entering the front door, a clear view to the back patio and the ocean greet you. The house is quite large- more than enough space for our group of 4. The 5 bedrooms, all with en-suite baths and all but 1 bedroom have their own terrace; as stated only 2 of the bedrooms have air conditioning (as of the time of this review). We found the decor in many of the rooms (including bedrooms) to be a bit worn and understated, but the rental appeared clean and organized. We found the bed small with very basic bedding. In the master, the jacuzzi was not working at the time we visited. If that is important to you, you may wish to inquire to see if it has been repaired. The local swim at a nearby beach but the surf is quite rough. Along the East-facing coast, there is a constant, warm breeze and the views from house, spectacular.
We enjoyed the bluetooth for music and many meals on the terrace. We also spent time enjoying the pool and adjoining patio. The pool appeared clean, it is deep and refreshing. The patio is large needs, but a group larger than 4 might find 4 lounge chairs insufficient. The patio furniture and coushins, we thought, could stand to be freshened/replaced. There are 2 beautiful wicker lounge chairs on a second floor terrace, one of which we moved down to the main patio. We thought that the rental could use more patio furniture of that caliber and some greenery (perhaps potted planting) to make it a bit more inviting and provide privacy.
The kitchen is well equipped. The appliances were all in good working order. For those who really love coffee, you will find a full-sized, drip coffee-maker and you will also find a regular-size blender (no coffee bean grinder, so purchase it ground).
If you want to pay for daily cleaning services check with Kevin to arrange as he was very receptive to our request. Thank-you Kevin.
Bert was always available if we needed anything- Just a phone call away.The owner was responsive and checked in with us part-way through our stay.
Overall, very enjoyable 4.5 stars
Orion’s View is a fantastic property
Orion’s View is in the top 3 of VRBO rentals that I have used over the past years. The property has everything needed to provide a relaxing vacation in paradise. The villa is very clean, and Bert is there to ensure things run smoothly. Kevin was extremely easy to work with, and provided many tips as to things to do and places not to be missed. I was able to get a rental car via Mark, that was almost brand new, for less than any of the big rental companies. Jackie’s restaurant is across the street, and can provide a home cooked meal, far cheaper than any of the local restaurants. The view from the pool and veranda area of the rocky coast and blue waters is simply fantastic and over whelming. Many photo’s were taken from this area. The breeze coming through the bedroom doors negated the red for any air conditioning. The wifi worked well throughout the villa, and the ability to use the house phone for Stateside calls is also a plus. I just can’t say enough about how pleased everyone was with this property.
