“Did not want to leave” My husband and I stayed at Ian and Nadine's Villa for 10 days in February and did not want to leave. The villa was beautiful and very clean. The grounds and pool were well kept and the pool at the end of the day (or first thing in the morning) was so refreshing.
We did a lot of sight seeing and walked to Speightstown a couple of times and enjoyed the locals; buying fresh veggies and fruit at the stands. The fish from tne local market was amazing! The Flying Fish and Marlin is what we especially loved. Alvin, the taxi Nadine recommended was excellent. We had the pleasure of hiring his cab , driven by his father, for an afternoon and he toured us first to the North Point (too beautiful for words!) and down along the coast to Bathsheba. As a native to the island, Nevel was a wealth of information and treated us like royalty. We had 5 star dining at most places we ate on the Island. We walked to Mullins for dinner one night and to Coblers Cove another
evening for excellent Lobster Thermadore. We walked miles and miles, and you can, but need to be cautious of the traffic.The sidewalks are safer but many places you were beside the road and needed to be aware at all times. This was a little more challenging at night after a few Rum Punches and Banks beers:) Barbados is a fairly safe place and customer service is tops, all over the island. The yellow bus was a riot and had huge fun travelling on them. The white vans, not so much. Too close for comfort! Overall it was an amazing vacation and we would recommend the villa to anyone. The customer service from Nadine was exceptional right from my first email to inquire about the property to the day we left. Anita and Dave made sure all our needs were met and any questions answered. The bartender Greg at the Villa was a true professional. We really did not want to leave and come back to cold Alberta but consoled ourselves that it would only be about 300 more sleeps till we were off on our next island adventure!
