homeaway$275 - $500
Gibbs Glade Villa is an immaculate, wonderfully tranquil, light and spacious, 4 bedroom, 4 bathroom detached villa, with its own pool, set in fully enclosed, secluded, tropical gardens. Vaulted ceilings throughout afford a light & airy feeling, assisted by the gentle trade winds which help to keep the villa nicely cool. The open plan layout of this single story property is ideal for multi-generational family holidays as well as couples getaways. There is air conditioning in each bedroom and ceiling fans in every room and on the rear verandah. GGV offers a pleasing inside/out living experience with plentiful relaxed seating and ambient alfresco dining overlooking the pool and well lit gardens - a striking backdrop to your evening dining and a wonderful outlook for your marvellously relaxed breakfasts, lunches and chilled days just slouching about on the outside furniture....maybe even a monkey or two will pass by...... Courtesy airport transfers, daily housekeeping, regularly changed linens, bath & beach towels , bathrobes, AC, super-fast internet, cable TVs & Netflix are all included in your rental fee. Chef and grocery shopping services are available at extra fees, as is discounted airport arrival fast track service. We aim to offer a very high standard at exceptional value, for a wonderful vacation to remember and we hope that our guest reviews reflect this. Ideally located for the discerning traveller on the 'platinum' west coast, between Speightstown and Holetown, GGV is situated in an established, safe and peaceful neighbourhood (no road noise!), known as Gibbs Glade. It is just a short walk to both Gibbs and Mullins beaches (Mullins has a popular bar/restaurant), whilst being centrally located for sightseeing of this captivating island. Set in a third of an acre, with a distinctive palm tree perimeter, the landscaping has been planned to provide privacy. The carefully tended gardens surround an attractive, well maintained, 20 foot circular swimming pool with sun loungers, tables, chairs, where one can enjoy the sun all day long and you can keep an eye out for the humming bird who is a regular afternoon visitor. There are parasols and natural shade provided by the palms, when you need to take a break from the rays. This east facing oasis enjoys a welcome breeze and there is an outside shower for freshening up and for loosing the sand after your morning dip in the fabulously calm, crystal clear Caribbean waters of Gibbs beach, just a short stroll away...when you can also watch the monkeys about their morning rituals enroute! The large, open-plan well-equipped kitchen has all new appliances including electric oven/hob, large refrigerator, microwave, CuisineArt appliances (grind & brew coffee maker, blender, juicer, toaster, kettle) plus a large multi-burner gas barbecue on the rear terrace. There is a 40" Hi-Def flatscreen TV with full cable package above the breakfast bar (with a further 55' ultra HD curved TV in the studio). Each bedroom in the main villa has French doors (with double locks) opening onto the verandah, the Garden Suite opens onto the gardens and pool area and all bedrooms have their own bathroom (3 are ensuite shower rooms, the twin has a family bathroom with shower over bath). Large fitted closets provide ample hanging space, shelves, drawers and central vanities. The Master Bedroom has a digital safe and a super kingsize bed. The Second Bedroom has a kingsize bed, the Garden Suite has a double bed and the Twin room has two twin beds (which may be pushed together for couples). All are super-comfortable, replete with lovely linens. A foldaway bed for young children, a crib and highchair for infants can be arranged upon request. The Studio houses a 55" curved ultra HD TV with full cable, Netflix & WiFi and a BlueTooth and DVD player, comfy leather sofa, rowing machine, exercise bike, light weights and yoga mats. There is also a basketball hoop on the fully enclosed front yard where there is parking for 4+ cars. The idyllic, peaceful Gibbs Beach, perfect for swimming & snorkelling, is just a 4 mins walk away via a cut through. The livelier Mullins Beach, which has a very good beach bar/restaurant plus water sports, inflatables for the children and sun loungers for hire, is just a 5 mins walk via a similar cut through or 6 and 8 mins slog the road. Another favourite beach of ours can be found a few mins drive away at Lower Carlton, where loungers are also available for hire. The authentic Speightstown, full of Caribbean charm, is approx 5 mins by car with the more vibrant Holetown complete with the stylish Lime Grove housing designer shopping, eateries and state of the art cinema, just a 10 mins drive. A car is recommended, but by no means essential and should you wish to hire a vehicle, we have negotiated a 15% discount with one of the leading rental companies. Alternatively there is a bus stop less than 10 mins walk which puts you on the route between Speightstown, as far as Bridgetown and one can travel anywhere on the island for $1 USD! ($2 BDS). Otherwise, taxis are reasonably priced and we have a preferred local service. There are a couple of supermarkets within an easy drive and a 24/7 petrol station within walking distance (500 meters) which has a wide selection of convenience and food items available. There is an excellent local fish market and fruit & veg stall 7 mins away (to make the most of the gas barbecue!), plus numerous restaurants and bars, all located within a short drive of the villa. Mullins and Bombas are within walking distance. The villa and gardens are fully enclosed and the whole exterior of the property is fumigated frequently to keep mosquitoes and other insects at bay and there are electric mosquito zappers on the rear terrace, plus mosquito netting on all windows, allowing them to be constantly open. Access controlled-automated gate entry, together with all-night 360 degree security lighting provides that extra peace of mind. We do not enforce a set check-in/check-out time, but broadly speaking, its around 12:00 and 16:00. Whilst we will always do our best to accommodate guest needs, we will require your full cooperation with our excellent GGV team, especially when we have a same-day turn around, when these times will need to be adhered to* Housekeeping is 5 times per week, for approx. 4 hours, usually between the hours of 08:00 and 12:00 and as the villa has lots of space, the presence of discrete GGV staff should never impinge upon our guests privacy. There is a washing machine exclusively for guest use. We offer chef services (at an additional fee) helping you to make the most of the very most of the villa. Shopping and table service included in chef fees. Additionally, we have recently introduced a grocery shopping service for those not wishing to rent a car or for others who are simply too chilled for the supermarket! Happy to provide further details upon request. From start to finish, we will do our utmost to ensure your vacation is hassle free and fabulous. Just relax, unwind, soak up the rays and sink into the quality comforts of Gibbs Glade Villa and enjoy the spectacular 'platinum' coast of beautiful Barbados ...... Regrettably we do not rent to groups under 30 years old, wedding parties, nor do we permit events. * there will be no same day changeover for all bookings made after 10th September 2017, but there will be a $100 USD transfer supplement (payable locally) for parties of 5 and above.
