Amenities include a fully fitted kitchen with the full range of cooking utensils; an open plan living area with ceiling fan; two bedrooms with fully fitted wardrobes and air-conditioning, one bed room contains a double bed and the other 2 single beds which can be arranged as one queen size bed and a bathroom with toilet and walk in shower.

The villa is one of three and shares a spacious garden, swimming pool with loungers, large gazebo with outdoor dining sets. All the family can enjoy the outdoor facilities at Affinity, take a swim or relax by the pool; play in the garden or simply take the heat off in the shade of our large gazebo that can also be used as an outside dining area.
The villa in the ideal location to experience the tranquility of Caribbean living whilst being able to easily access the whole island by car or bus. It is accessible by car or bus from the airport, the journey takes less than 15 minutes. The tranquil location is 3 minutes’ walk to the main road which is a busy bus route taking you across the island and the property is within 5 minutes of a quiet beach. There are several local services within 5 minutes walking distance of the property including an English pub, doctor's office with pharmacy, bars, restaurants and a min-mart. A further distance away though within walking distance are the busier areas of Oistins and St Lawrence gap with supermarket, bustling night life, multiple restaurants, banks and beaches.
Smoking is no longer permissible in indoor public spaces in Barbados. Please smoke on the veranda, gazebo or garden.
I stayed at the Affinity Villas in March 2014, we were a group of 4 girls. Our Barbados experience was excellent overall, due in large part to this property. The villa is exactly as pictured: neat, clean with everything you might need on a vacation. I would say the best part of the villa is its location. The villa is a quick 3-4 minute walk to a beautiful beach (Maxwell beach, Welches beaches) and a quick 5 minute minivan-taxi ride to several other beautiful beaches (Miami beach, Accra beach). A large supermarket is a 10 minute walk and all the island night life at Oistins is a 15 minute walk. We were debating renting a car initially, but we really did not need it. Everything is accessible either by walking or by taking $2 ($1USD) minivan taxis that are readily available and run ALL night. The swimming pool and gazebo were also a nice addition - great for night swims, sunbathing. We were on a budget so we cooked most of our meals and sat outside on the gazebo.
The only thing I felt would have made this property a little more comfortable would be including a few essential amenities: dish/hand soap, toilet paper, etc - just so that you dont have to rush to the supermarket for these things as soon as you arrive.
Finally, Angela, the property manager, was terrific! She was always available by phone or in person to answer questions. At one point we had couldnt figure out how to turn on the stove and she was there in 5 minutes to help us work it. We will most definitely be returning to Barbados next year and will be sure to stay at Affinity Villas again.

Amazing holiday at this villa. Everything you could possibly want is in it,. The pool was cleaned 3 times in a week & the maid service is fabulous.
There is nothing that the owner could have possibly done more to make our stay an enjoyable one. Very peaceful location, close to Oistins and the main beach there. However I would suggest that you rent a car as although you could walk into the Gap or Oistins, it is also a treck along a busy road. Nevertheless this didnt bother us.
The Villa was spotlessly clean and the air conditioning at night in the bedrooms was heaven.
A really enjoyable and peaceful holiday was had by all. You will love it.
thanks to Maxine and most of all Fred who just couldnt do enough for us - thank you
We will be back x

It was great to come back to this villa. It was as we left it and we felt like we were home from home. As usual Fred, the cleaner and the pool man were as accommodating as ever. We look forward to our next stay.
We would definitely reccommend this property to friends.
Thank you once again for making our holiday an enjoyable one.

We truly enjoyed the Affinity Villa. The Villa was clean and fully equipped. Fred was very pleasant and accommodating to our needs. The only complaint I have is that the pillows were too hard, otherwise the accommodation was outstanding. I really enjoyed the pool in the afternoon once we returned from the beach. I would not hesitate to recommend the Affinity Villas to anyone. We are looking forward to our next holiday at the Villas in Barbados.
Thank you for the wonderful holiday

We felt the property was very well maintained.It was clean and we ooked a fter by the cleaning staff, the pool man, and Fred very much a gentleman. Im afraid our only complaint of the property was the main bedroom with the double bed. My family had trouble sleeping as the mattress and pillows were so hard.
We realize you have no control over the tenants but on our last three nights a family arrived with a child who was noisee and their music was so loud we could not even hear our TV in the evenijng.
Otherwise we really enjoyed our stay with you.

Very nice. Had everything we needed. Nice quiet location but close to transport. Buses and ZRs to Oistins and Bridgetown at the end of the road. Miami Beach only 5 mins by bus or ZR. This is not a criticism but a few more sun loungers might be a good idea and air-conditioning in the second bedroom.
Thank you for your review. We really appreciate when guests take the time to provide feedback. We will buy a couple of extra sun loungers as suggested as our properties are fully booked more and more frequently - so thanks for that suggestion. Unfortunately we are not in a position to install A/C in the second bedroom at the moment as this is very expensive to run and would force us to increase our prices significantly when we are keen to keep our prices competitive. This is something we will keep under review though. Laura, Affinity Villas.
A mobile phone and MIFI portable wireless internet modem (which provides internet access to upto 5 wireless devices) are provided for your use during your stay. Top ups are widely available from shops and petrol stations.
There is a communal gazebo available and a basketball net for use by kids and adults!
