This is the second time me and my family have stayed at fairholme gardens. We did enjoy our stay here as it is close to all amenities and having children the pool is a must. Although this time we did feel neglected by the house mngr,whether it was because we had stayed before but there wasn't that personal touch and 'can I do anything for you ' as before. We also had to go out and buy cleaning supplies as the house needed a good deep clean. There is a lady who comes in once a week to clean and change beds etc and she does a good job but the house itself needs a lot of general maintenance and updating. Overall I would recommend fairholme gardens as it is good value for money and with a little tlc it could be a fabulous property.
Just as described absolutely stunning property Janice was on hand whenever needed and made us feel very welcomed from the moment we arrived. I stayed in both properties with daughters son in laws and grandchildren and will definitely be returning next year
We are a family of 2 adults and 3 children of 1, 2 and 7 years old. The property was exactly as described, a good supermarket is about a 15-20 min walk, which stocks all your basic needs if cooking. The beach is literally 5mins across the road and is beautiful. What was a godsend was the pool, as, if you've been out all day to come back and have a cool dip was lovely. The children loved it, as soon as they were up in the morning they wanted to go in, I wouldn't consider staying anywhere without a pool again. I don't really have any negatives to say about 19a fairholme gardens as we were well looked after by Janice who manages the property. The only thing I would say is it could do with a bit of tlc and general maintenance as in repainting and decorating, although these things do not interfere with your stay. To sum it up, I would definitely come back and will be rebooking for next year.
I have just returned from a lovely holiday. I stayed in Fairholme Gardens for 15 nights. The house was lovely, just as the photos showed. There was everything you needed and more. Its situated in a really nice, quiet location, amongst locals and travellers. So you get a real feel of Barbados life, as opposed to staying in a hotel. This was my 5th time to Barbados in the last few years and as always, bajan people are probably the friendliest people ive ever met. Its only a short walk to the nearest beach and several other beaches are relatively nearby, either a slightly longer walk or a short bus ride. Theres a small convienience store and bar down the road and only a 10-15 minute walk to the supermarket and Oistins or jump on a ZR bus and its only minutes away. Also very near to the main nightlife on the south coast, at St Lawrence Gap, again you can just flag down a ZR bus or jump in a taxi for about £7. Theres no need for a car, unless of course you wanted to tour the island.
Janice, who managed the property, was lovely and lives in the house behind Fairhome Gardens, so easily reached if you needed anything.
Cant fault this property at all. Thanks a lot. Definitely recommend staying here.
No problems whatsoever.Within a 15min.walk to Oistins.We had a disabled member of family with us so we hired a small car for the 2 weeks.Picked car up at airport and dro pped off on departureIt isn`t necessary to hire a car as the main road and bus stops are a couple of minutes walk.Excellent location for touring the Island.The property itself is exactly as described.Very spacious and all facilities included.(Washing &drying machine etc.) The pool is very good! (cool in the morning). If I had to moan about anything it would be a small request for Wi-Fi or other internat connection but it did not become a problem. I would definately go back. Thank you!
