Totally perfect

January 24, 2019 by Simon

Totally perfect for our group of eight adults. All of the rooms are spotlessly clean and there is lots of space throughout the villa. The kitchen is really well stocked with everything you need. Desert Rose is just a few minutes easy walk to a superb beach that we have become familiar with. It’s really near to the Lone Star Restaurant and The Top Deck for great beach dining. We are eight very happy people who will all be re-booking as soon as the flight dates are made available!!

We found Desert Rose to be well appointed and very clean. The villa is well looked after. It was just a bit too far for us to walk into Holetown but the buses are everywhere and very frequent and inexpensive so it wasn’t a problem. The property manager Jacintha was on hand to help with any queries and she made our beach arrangements at ‘Top Deck’.
We had a fabulous stay. We really like the location and Jacintha. All we required was attended to right away. We would absolutely love to return.

Lovely stay!

November 18, 2018 by Randy Clemens

My family and I stayed a week here and had an amazing time! The house was spotless, had plenty of towels and sheets, and was even stocked with basic food necessities, water, bread, eggs etc for the next morning. A huge help when you arrive at night with little children! We were greeted by the hostess Jacintha who was wonderful ! She even babysat our kids one night so we could go out. The location is convenient, very close drive to Holetown and a short walk to the beach! All in all a wonderful stay. Thanks very much!

Hope to be back!

Desert Rose was well suited for our holiday in Barbados. The villa is just a short drive to a marine sanctuary on the beach, where you can swim and snorkel. Grocery shopping was simple at the Massy Supermarket in Holetown. There are excellent bars and restaurants, and we enjoyed great sunsets. At Millie's fish-market we found fresh fish daily. Desert Rose is perfectly equipped and we made good use of the BBQ. We used the plunge pool and the deck every day. We enjoyed our dinner on the veranda, serenaded by the singing tree frogs! We would all love to stay at Desert Rose again and hope to be back soon!

Highly Recommended

I completely recommend this villa for everyone in search of a really peaceful, relaxed, and scenic get-away. The accommodation are lovely and a reasonable price. Hosts supplied lots of recommendations and local suggestions. Four of us stayed at Desert Rose and we each had our own bedroom with a private bathroom and temperature controlled air conditioning. We cooked and ate al fresco each morning before we took the short stroll to the beach or we would hop onto a bus for another adventure. We miss Barbados!

Great holiday home

February 13, 2018 by Mathew

Our stay was great. The villa is very well set out and every thing is of really good quality and exactly as listed on the web site. It’s a five minute stroll to a gorgeous beach and a just short bus or taxi journey to Holetown. Jacintha did an excellent job of settling us in on arrival and was accommodating for our check out. I hope we are able to return again soon !

Beautiful home

June 16, 2017 by Barbara

Had 10 nights here. A spacious, homely, secure ,ultra clean and comfortable home.? Fantasic location close to some of the best eateries and beaches and within walking distance to Hole-town. I can't wait to go back. A real hidden gem.....stunning and more than delivered on our expectations

Perfect location, beautiful and immaculate colonial style house…an all-round winner!!

June 15, 2017 by Michelle Mercer

An absolutely beautiful house in the heart of St. James, Barbados. Immaculately clean, with 4 big double bedrooms and large bathrooms (3 of which are en-suite). This lovely house is typically colonial style and located in a perfect spot. Five minutes from Holetown, the shops and of course, bars and restaurants. It’s also just a couple of minutes walk from the stunning beaches at St James. We walked down the beach almost everyday and had lunch at the famous JuJu's and The Lone Star, which are both literally minutes away too. We found at great spot with extremely comfortable beds outside Santi beach bar, where the famous 'Freddie' attends to your every need with humour, charm and courtesy. The house is ideal for families, groups of friends and/or couples. We went as a group of 4 mature ladies and had a fantastic time. We will most definitely be coming back to this winner of a house at St. James!!

Perfect Holiday!

June 15, 2017 by Janet Sixsmith

This property is an authentic colonial house that made me feel like I was in the "real" Barbados. It is very spacious and you have every facility you need for a wonderful holiday. The bedrooms were all lovely with large en suite bathrooms and great showers. It has a spacious verandah with ceiling fans that was comfortable and a great space to either dine or just to have a nightcap. It also has a cooling plunge pool with additional space for sunbathing or having lunch. It felt very safe and the outside areas were well tended giving a very pretty overall impression. It was less than 5 minutes to walk to a fantastic beach across the road which has very comfortable sunbeds and a couple of great, reasonably priced, beach restaurants serving fresh fish etc. However, if you want to spoil yourself the Lonestar is just there as well! There are many fantastic restaurants only a short taxi ride away and you can be in Holetown in 5mins. I would highly recommend this property!

A perfect holiday

January 14, 2017 by Avril Brown

This beautiful, comfortable, spacious and well appointed property was the ideal base for our wonderful holiday in Barbados. We particularly loved dining on the verandah and lounging by the plunge pool in the late afternoon after a day at the beach. Service was excellent: Karen at Paradise Rentals ensured all went smoothly prior to our trip. Veronica shopped for us in advance and looked after us very well during our stay and Jacintha, a very kind and cheerful lady, kept the house spotless for us. Barbados has so much to offer, but our highlights this time would be the Gospel breakfast at the Crane Hotel then a day at Crane Beach, lunch at Champers (fabulous restaurant and not as pricey as some), North Point's spectacular scenery and the Animal Flower Cave, a visit to St Nicholas Abbey, a stroll along the boardwalk at Hastings, a turtle watching trip with Silver Moon, cocktails at Sharkeys bar in St Lawrence Gap, lunch at the Round House at Bathsheba or at the Lone Star (walking distance) and dinner at the Tides in Holetown (fabulous surroundings and good food, although silly prices). Our favourite beaches were the Garden (our nearest), Paynes Bay, Mullins and Accra / Rockley (great beach bar, much better and cheaper than the one at Mullins). As regards 3 Pavilion Grove I cannot recommend this property highly enough and only hope it is available when we next visit Barbados!
