Family from Anchorage, USA Dec 2015

Enjoyed our 2 week stay at Fairholme Gardens. Pool, garden and neighborhood were lovely. Short walk to beach and access to shopping/night life excellent. Room for improvement with quality of bedding and towels, creaky doors. Biggest issue was very poor quality wifi (router was next door in 19a) and tv ( with a teenager a necessity). Kitchen well equipped and clean but poor water pressure. Housekeeper was wonderful and very pleasant in ensuring our stay was enjoyable. Thanks Janice!

Hi Judy
Thanks for your comments. I am currently in the process of organising replacement bedding and towels and will ask Janice to look at the doors. I wasn't aware the TV wasn't working, did you tell Janice ?

Thanks again

Idea for people holidaying in Barbados on a budget and for the price it cannot be faulted.
The accommodation was what we expected and served its purpose for five middle-aged men there to watch England play cricket.
Although somewhat dated and in need of a refurbishment - particularly the downstairs - it is in a quiet location, ideally situated for both Oistins and The Gap.
The only complaint we had was a problem with the pool (murky water). An attendant visited twice in the week we were there but couldnt fathom out the problem, resulting in the fact that none of us used it - which was disappointing during some very warm weather!
The lady who acts as cleaner and works in a local bar was very helpful and considerate at all times.

Everything was simply perfect!
The owner is very nice and effective and easy to communicate with. We really loved the ability to book via Rentalsystems. The most convenient way to deal with these sort of things. The house is in lovely location, just a 10 min walk from the fantastic quiet little beach and 20 minutes walking or 3 minutes on the minibus to get to an amazing Miami Beach. The property is fully equiped with everything youd ever need. The lady who looks after the house, Janice is the best! Ready to help you with any question. We really enjoyed our tie there and will definitely be back again i the nearest future.

We rented both houses and everything was as described along with great help from Janice. We would recommend both the properties for a great value holiday.

Fairholme Gardens is in an excellent location and is a great option for people traveling with children. The local shops and amenities are a short distance away, as is Maxwell Beach.

In terms of size, the properties definitely exceeded our expectations, the patio and garden areas were also a wonderful touch... the children spent very little time inside of the house!
It was great to have such freedom during our stay, life was pretty much business as usual in terms of cooking, washing clothes (if necessary) and relaxing with friends... everyone felt comfortable- it was home away from home.
I would definitely recommend this property to others, furthermore, I would be inclined to stay there again in the future.

My only gripe is that our housekeeper introduced herself to us on the very first day but after that, we werent fortunate enough to benefit from the once per week visit we had been advised of. Instead we did all cleaning ourselves, and washed our towels and linen repeatedly. Whilst this had no particularly bearing on our stay, I am just asking potential visitors to prepare themselves for this possibility.

Lastly, I advise that all visitors clarify the check-out details before departure... as a family of 6, it was very frustrating to receive a phone call (from said housekeeper), whilst out at dinner at 6pm stating that we needed to vacate the property by 10am the following morning. This was obviously surprising news to us!!!
