    A wonderful stay at Paynes Bay

    We had a wonderful time staying at Holders Hill. Madaline greeted us on arrival and showed us about the spacious apartment. She had stocked the refrigerator with some drinks that were greatly appreciated. The next day we walked to the grocery store for some supplies and then spent the afternoon on the beach, trying out the Gazebo food, swimming in the delightful Caribbean, and lounging on the beach chairs under an umbrella that they supplied. If you decide to take advantage of this wonderful apartment and locale be sure to remember your sunscreen, insect repellent, shampoo and soap.

    Another wonderful vacation

    We had a wonderful vacation. We've stayed here a few times now, and this time was just as delightful. Madaline and William are wonderful hosts. The apartment is in a great location - right on the beach and it's very easy to get around from there. We enjoyed having meals on the deck, looking out to sea, watching the hummingbirds and kingfishers, not to mention, the beautiful Caribbean Sea. The Gazebo bar serves delicious food and the best rum punches. The Gazebo food truck has a great daily menu of local dishes. I highly recommend that you try them. Every staff member was warm and friendly, and made sure we were well taken care of. If you like water sports you must try the paddle boarding. I did for the first time and had a great teacher. There is also great snorkeling right off the beach. I really can't wait to return to my Haven Away From Home. Many thanks to Madaline, William and all the staff for making my stay so enjoyable.

    5 stars, is it enough?

    Perfect location, in the night you can sleep with the sound of the sea, ... and some roosters ;-). You're at 30 mt. from your beach umbrella, and 40 from Caribe. In this space The Gazebo, perfect for rum punch and lunch. Dont' worry at 6 p.m. is closed. Behind the house there's "BUS Stop to and out the City". Besides 100 mt to South Mr. Vic Restaurant (USD 100 in 2 for a good dinner). Other 100 mt. , beyond gas station, a Roti Restaurant (USD 30 in 2 for a good lunch). In the same direction, but along shoreline, after 500 mt a caratterisic fish market, eggs, fruit and veggie (11 am to 7 pm). For supermarket it's better a car or bus. What else? ;-) The apartment is big enought for our 2 iSUP 12,6 and 8, clean (twice p.w.) and full furnished, wonderfull little terrace. The stove is elettric, and is very different the gas sistem. There's a car park. When you arrive from airport (south), after gas station of Paynes, there's,on the right side, a little grey church. Thanks to Madaline, William, daughter and all family for assistence and for the wonderful holyday. Già tradotto x gli italiani: Posizione perfetta, nella notte si può dormire con il suono del mare, ... e alcuni galli ;-). Sei a 30 mt. dal tuo ombrellone e 40 da Caribe. In questo spazio The Gazebo, perfetto per il rum punch e il pranzo. Non preoccuparti alle 6 del pomeriggio è chiuso. Dietro la casa c'è "BUS Stop to the City". Oltre 100 metri a sud Mr. Vic Restaurant (100 USD in 2 per una buona cena). Altro 100 mt. , oltre la stazione di servizio, un ristorante Roti (30 USD in 2 per un buon pranzo). Nella stessa direzione, ma lungo la costa, dopo 500 metri un caratteristico mercato del pesce, uova, frutta e verdura (dalle 11:00 alle 19:00). Per il supermercato è meglio una macchina o un autobus. Cos'altro? ;-) L'appartamento è abbastanza grande per i nostri 2 iSUP 12,6 e 8, pulito (due volte p.w.) e completamente arredato, piccolo terrazzo meraviglioso. La stufa è elettrica, ed è molto diversa dal sistema a gas. C'è un parcheggio. Quando arrivi dall'aeroporto (sud), dopo la stazione di servizio di Paynes, c'è, sul lato destro, una piccola chiesa grigia. Grazie a Madaline, William, figlia e tutta la famiglia per l'assistenza e per la meravigliosa vacanza.

    Perfect Location!

    Great location, beachfront, friendly helpful beach vendors. I loved sitting on my beachfront patio drinking my coffee every morning. And there was an incredible breeze throughout the apartment.

    A great place to stay

    My wife and I had a great time in Barbados. William and Madaline were perfect hosts. The location of the apartment can't be beat being close to the beach, shopping areas and restaurants. We are already planning our next trip back!

    Very nice time

    We just experienced a short but great time in Barbados. Madeline and William were very nice. The beach is just steps away. We did not have a car so we used the local buses which were inexpensive and convenient. There are a number of restaurants within walking distance. Mr. Vics was a great time with Tony on the steel drums. We also purchased fresh fish from a local place within easy walking distance. Overall the apartment is great value and we would stay there again.

    Great price/on beautiful beach/great location

    This is a very nice apartment - clean and roomy two bedroom/baths and nice view.right on the beach - Great location - very expensive hotels to either side! Madaline and William were great hosts - they are on the property to help with any issues. The beach is beautiful and Gazebo Beach Bar in right in front of Apt for drinks and food. We had a great time!! Would recommend Tapestry restaurant for breakfast and Vic's for dinner.
