If you can tear yourselves away from all these activities you can go down to the peaceful beach and swim, sunbathe, read and snorkel to your hearts content. You might even spot a turtle or two!

"Garden, pool & sea-views of a Tropical hotel with the economy, space & independence of home."
A villa/ apartment holiday offers the convenience, space & independence of home which a hotel lacks- but, unless in a holiday complex with associated crowds- the extra utility usually comes at the exp… More

"easy, relaxing, wonderful"
Organisation - Roz handled the booking really nicely and was helpful in arranging the extra kid-related equipment we needed. We were met on our arrival at the villa, and everything was explained to us - couldn't have been smoother. The lady who cleaned also babysat for our daughter (about $12B an hour) and she was brilliant - allowed us to have a night out alone. Any little fixes seemed to get done same day by the guy employed by the development.
Apartment - great. Simply furnished but has everything you need. Easy to keep clean (plus it gets cleaned once a week while you're there anyway), lots of sheets, towels etc. Perfect for self catering, all we needed was there. Fridge is massive, which helps in that climate. Shower was powerful, hot water plentiful and sun-powered. Washing machine big and simple, 2 drying racks and the sun to dry stuff same day. This apartment is opposite the pool and faces the sea, so it's ideal versus the higher numbered ones which are off to one side.
Development - set back within the local residences of Fitts village itself, so you get to meet the locals, every one of whom says hello when they see you and couldn't be more friendly.
It's worth knowing that this is a development with several full-time residents, and being empathetic to their way of life is a must for a successful holiday - they're lovely and very helpful provided you are thoughtful (taking your kids to the pool at 6am annoys everyone, but them in particular - just be mindful). That said, the pool is warm (again - heated by sun only), clean (I think it was cleaned daily) and the gardens are tended every few days.
There are chickens which run around the development - but then that's the Caribbean in a nutshell and is part of its charm.
Location - in Fits Village between Holetown and Bridgetown. Takes 7 mins on the bus to Holetown (great supermarket, great 24 hour medical centre), 3 mins walk to Jordans supermarket (OK for basics but not for a fortnight of eating). 3 minute walk to a coffee place (new) and the beach. Set back from the main road so that it's quiet, but if you want to grab a bus anywhere else it's only 2 mins walk to the bus stops.
Overall - this very quickly just felt like home and we'd not hesitate to come back again.

"Comfortable Base to explore the island"
Situated off the main road this is a pleasant house with a view of the shared pool. We virtually had the pool to ourselves for the week.
We hired a car as there isn't really much within walking distance and we like to explore the island, although you could use the local buses.
You are mainly surrounded by local residents who are getting on with life so expect early morning noise, dogs barking and cockerels crowing, it was not an issue to us. Look out for the visiting monkey.
The house is well equipped but if taking children I would suggest some DVD,s as the tv is not connected to a signal/satellite. There is wifi so you can use the Internet etc and a phone for local calls.. The property was clean and the bed comfortable. The gardens are well maintained and the pool was clean.
The closest supermarket is Jordan's but Savacentre in Holetown is much better in my opinion.
If you prefer luxury and seafront position this is not the property for you but if you are on a budget and need somewhere clean and comfortable this house will not disappoint.

"Faboulous, great tranquil location"
Roz the owner was very helpful and accommadating. The propery is well equipt for a family of four. It is in a peaceful location and the pool and garden area is wonderful as are the neighbours.
There is sooo much to do in Barbados, but we were especially there for Carnival and the rum of course :)
There is Jordan's supermarket within walking distance but we preferred the larger Savacentre which is approximately a ten minute drive away which had more choice and we found more value for money.
Will definatly recommend family and friends to check out Ajoupa Villas - better than staying in a noisy hotel any day of the week!
