This was the greatest vacation rental of all the homes I rented on VRBO (approx 15 homes over the years)...I have rented several multi-million dollar homes. First, Karen was the easiest person to work with. She communicated with me and answer all my questions...I will admit, I had a LOT of questions. It was like "To good to be True" for the price...therefore I had lots of questions. Her management property team (Peter and the concierge team) contact us immediately(within 24hrs) after we paid, to see what our needs/wants were (i.e. transportation, food, tours, entertainment, grocery shopping, daily in-house cooked meals, daily menu, etc). The property staff constantly kept in touch with us, to see what they could do to make my vacation a great experience. When we arrive the security staff greeted us with friendly loving open arms. Romeo and Joseph took care of us and made sure we had transportation and the same taxi driver. I mention to them I would like to have the same driver. They call restaurants and made reservations for us..They just went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable...Then the icing on the cake was Jasmine, the housekeeper /cook. She treated us with so much love. She cooked breakfast every morning and setup breakfast on the patio..she wash, fold and iron our clothes, kept the Villas extremely clean. This lady was Amazing. She was always wanting to do something to put a smile on our face. I enjoyed talking to her...she became like family. Matter of fact, I was looking forward to chat time with her. Jasmine cooked our breakfast to perfection. When I was getting in the car to leave, I had to get back out and hug her again and again. I felt like, I was leaving my mom behind. As for the Villas it was exactly like the pictures on VRBO. The beach view, the inside and outside. The greenery is beautiful and the beach is less than 25 steps from patio. I was on the plane looking at my calendar to see when I could return to my new Villa and my new family..This is the first house I rented on VRBO with all this high quality service and staff. Yes, you get a staff with this Villa to ensure your stay is the best. You wish for it, they can make it happen. If I had not experience this for myself. ...I would have thought "For this price, it's to good to be true". However, it was all true. I felt like a celebrity. Thank you Karen, Romeo, Joseph, Jasmine, Peter and the young lady who was the concierge. Looking forward to my return.
Little Reef’s incredible photographs do not do that view, from your dining room and bedroom....justice. The whole back of the apartment faces the ocean, just open the sliding doors and you are completely enveloped in the sights and sounds of paradise. We had completed all kinds of research on the places in Barbados we HAD to see, but being faced with our “backyard” each morning turned out to be the ruin of our sightseeing plans. Grantley opened the sliding doors in the dining room for us when we arrived, and we never closed them again until our taxi back to the airport beeped his horn to let us know he had arrived.
Fitts Village is lovely and tiny. We visited the Jordan’s supermarket (5 minute walk-take the beach) and Wendy’s sportsbar. The apartment is on Highway 1 and the bus running from Bridgetown in the south up to Speightstown (through Holetown) in the North passes by all day long. Whenever we did pull ourselves away (usually in the evening after sundown) we took the busses. We never waited as long as 5 minutes for a bus. Sometimes there was seating, sometimes we stood but it was always pleasant fast and cheap.
The road is noisy, the second bedroom and kitchen are on the road-side of the apartment. You could elect to let it bother you or you could do as we did and just have an extra rum punch before turning in for the evening...leave the sliding door open and let the waves lull you to sleep. We had a Bluetooth speaker with us and never suffered from the road noise.
The apartment had everything we needed except two things. No salt and pepper (or any other kitchen seasoning), and this next one is huge: bug repellent! Bring bug spray with you if you aren’t absolutely certain that you will make it to Jordan’s (to buy some) before night fall. We didn’t know. We were mesmerized by the view, pinching ourselves at our luck for being there when suddenly the pinching wasn’t self inflicted anymore. Every evening around dusk mosquitoes and no-see-ems descend no matter where you are on the island. You DO NOT want to face them unprotected! Happily a spray at the anointed second they descend and a second one before turning in is all you need...but you DO need it.
While we were there, a monkey visited the tree outside the bedroom window and a sea turtle was spotted right off our beach. We met so many amazingly lovely locals, cooked-in and ate out. Take a snorkel trip (we did El Tigre), put on a mask, and swim off the beach. It truly is paradise!
