The Perfect Holiday Retreat
This was our first time staying at Gibbs Glade Villa and we absolutely loved it! Our group comprised of 7 adults and 1 toddler, and Maria, Tonya and the entire staff were very welcoming and accommodated of all our needs. A crib and a high chair were provided for our son, which made travelling much lighter for us.
The villa had very spacious bedrooms and bathrooms, as well as a fully functional kitchen, including laundry.
The majority of our time at Gibbs Glade was spent soaking up the sun in the beautiful backyard and perfect sized pool.
It was an easy 5 minute walk to the quiet Gibbes beach, and the busier Mullins beach.
We rented a vehicle from Stoutes for 5 days, and we highly recommend it. It would be a shame to not do some exploring of this beautiful island. Nothing is too far away either, making day trips all around the island possible. We enjoyed St. Nicholas Abbey, Cherry Tree Hill, Cattlewash, Bathsheba, Animal Flower Cave (great spot for lunch) and many other beaches we visited.
There are also some very good spots for dinner that are close by. Our favourites were Bombas, Jumas, and The Fish Pot. If you are looking for a cocktail, check out One Eleven Beach Bar in Speightstown, or West Bar down in Holetown.
I could go on and on, but the bottom line is that you will fall in love with Gibbs Glade Villa and Barbados if you decide to visit.
We can't wait to make more memories and book another trip back!
Second stay this time for our Barbados wedding.
We chose to stay at GGV for the second time whilst we got married in Barbados earlier this month, Maria the villa owner runs an exceptionally professional operation with no rental detail overlooked, from the organising of fast track through the airport and airport transfers upon arrival to the much needed free entry passes for the famous Mullins Beach bar now sadly in the hands of Royal Westmorland all requirements are taken into consideration, on this occasion Maria went out of her way at no extra cost to accommodate one of our guests who is disabled (thank you again Maria).
The villa is very well appointed and kept spotless 5 times a week by the wonderful Natalie who cleans in a very subtle manner you will hardly notice she is there.
Donald and Suzanne are on hand if you need them to organise taxi services and island tours etc.
5 minutes from Gibbs and Mullins beach along with various West coast restaurants the location is perfect, we would suggest you hire a car and again Maria has this covered with a genuine 15% reduction available from Stoute’s car hire.
All in all we highly recommend GGV it’s considerably steps ahead of other villas within the same area that we’ve stayed in previously, we will return very soon.
If you're reading this get a rum punch and book the villa.
This was the perfect way to celebrate my 35thbirthday with my girls. From start to finish everything was perfection starting with Maria who answered every email quickly and always kept in touch. We went with Maria’s suggestion of purchasing fast track which was totally worth it. We were greeted by a member of the fast track team and personally escorted through customs with a breeze. He even watched our luggage while we shopped at duty free. We were then greeted by our driver Donald (more on him later) who took us to our villa. The pictures didn’t do this place justice. It was perfectly manicured, clean and quiet. Tonya the property manager took us on a tour and her daughter was gorgeous. We also had Tonya shop for us in advance so we had a few things to eat after a day of traveling but we ended up going to the store for a few more things. We each had our own ensuite bathroom which was perfect for us with the exception of the room with the twin beds having the bathroom accessible to the main living area. The next day we met Natalie and Trevor who I believed to secretly be ninjas. They inflated pool toys and cleaned the rooms. We basically lived at the pool which was 4ft 8in deep throughout. The star of the trip was our driver Donald. He gave us tours of the island including where the Queen Rihanna stays and showing us the most expensive house for sale. He always made sure we were safe even if it meant going out of his way or keeping him out late. We felt bad for calling him late but he always answered and picked us up with a smile. He brought us mangos from his tree that we wish we could’ve brought back. He truly made us feel like family. We decided to go on the Good Times Catamaran which was so fun. I can’t swim but I got my butt in that ocean and saw the most beautiful sea turtles and fish. The beach was a short walk and we took advantage of the Mullins beach club access. Although we got there a bit late, the staff was still accommodating. Oistins is a must on Friday night (The snapper at Mo’s is to die for) by far the best meal we had the entire trip. Donald took us to a small restaurant to grab some food before we left. It was so good we all fell asleep going to the airport. Overall I had a very memorable birthday. My only regret is that we didn’t stay longer. Everyone on the staff was so kind and we’re planning on coming back.
The Perfect Family Vacation
First, I have to share how I first came to book Gibbs Glade Villa. My husband and myself along with one of our other guests are all Director of Sales and Marketing for major hotels and have been in the industry over 30 years each. Like many, I started reading the reviews posted on the property almost a year out. I couldn't believe that consistently there were 5 star after 5 star. In my industry, you can have many positive reviews and an occasional off review, one just has to to read through many to get a full picture of how a property is and if its the proper one for you.
I had so many questions and have to say, Maria, the owner was so quick to respond and answer each and every question I had. I have to share there were many. Maria, a shout out to you and your patience with everything I asked. All was truly perfect! Maria saw to everything from telling me about how and where to have our wine delivered upon arrival, groceries in the refrigerator so we didn't have to shop that afternoon of arrival. The ability to have a Chef, helping me find the perfect outing on the " Good Times II Catamaran" sail, The recommendation of Stouts car rental and having the vehicle delivered to the villa also upon our arrival. WOW! When we landed at the airport, I am so glad Maria that you suggested the expediting through customs and having transportation arranged. Not a step was missed and the transition was so seamless. Though there is a cost associated with it, its worth every penny especially after traveling over 6 hours as our family had. Then we come to the arrival and being greeted with the beautiful and most helpful, Tonya. She is a wealth of knowledge and so gracious. Tonya set the remainder of the holiday in motion. The villa is everything pictured but BETTER if you can believe that! So pristine and organized. We wanted for nothing. We did bring in our own meats from the States, using a permit from the agriculture department to help with cost with so many of us and again so glad we did. We cooked all but two nights of our eight night stay. The grill on the veranda was spotless and cooked beautifully. The veranda is where we spent a great deal of our time. We laughed, cooked told happy stories, all so important when getting together with your grown children. I cannot forget Trevor who keeps the grounds immaculate. You can tell he takes great pride in what he does. Thank you Maria and your team for exceeding expectations! :)
Cant wait to go back!
My family of 7...six adults and a 2 year old, had the privilege to stay T Gibbs Glade the first week of June. Prior to our arrival Maria, the owner, was always in touch with us to answer any questions we had. I don’t think she ever sleeps! Lol. Maria gave us helpful information regarding tours to take and car rentals to use. We took her advise and she was spot on with her recommendations. Donald...the taxi driver was the most pleasant and punctual driver you can imagine. Every time he drove us somewhere he’d bring us a bag of fresh mangos from his trees. It was mango season.
Natalie, our house keeper, was amazing. She was cheerful, helpful, and kept us very organized. We discovered she was going to culinary school so we hired her one night to cook us a real Bajan feast. It was the most delicious and incredible dinner we had while in Barbados. We were so honored that she was able to cook for my husbands birthday dinner! It was a birthday dinner we will never forget.
Tonya, the manager, was a delight. Anything we needed she made sure we got. She also was a wealth of information for us and a contact if we needed anything while in Barbados.
So now the property...words or pictures can’t describe the beauty of Gibbs Glade. All I can say is I we all felt comfortable and at home. Wish it was “our beach house”. It was decorated very nicely and fully supplied with everything and anything that you could want. We ate every meal outside. There was always shade In The dining area and the “conversational “ area.
All the bedrooms had their own bathrooms and they were all fully stocked with soap and toilet paper. Very clean...only one bathroom had a tub. Beds were very comfortable for us...slept very well!
The pool area was beautiful. We spent a lot of family time sitting around the pool or floating. It was just so relaxing. You didn’t want to leave the house!
Gibbs Glade is less then a 5 minute walk to the beach. The beach is very quiet...we were the on,y ones there. We often walked to Mullins beach club...(tags provided by Maria) to watch the sunset and have a cocktail. When you first enter the water at both beaches it is a little rocky and if you have tender feet I would advise water shoes. The water was so beautiful and crystal clear. No seaweed. Once you got beyond the rocks the sand under your feet was like velvet.
Our recommendations to see/do would be definitely Good Times Catamaran tour which you get
Thank you so much for the fab review Patti and for giving a shout out to some of the wonderful GGV team members, who consistently do a fabulous job and take pride in always putting our guests first. We would be delighted to welcome you back to your 'Barbados beach house' at anytime!
Excellent property and excellent service from the property manager, this is my second visit to the property and already looking at booking for next year.
Villaen er på Vestkysten med Gibbs Beach er den nærmeste kun 4 minutters gang. Det er stille og afsondret. En lignende kort gåtur langs den samme kystlinje i den modsatte retning er Mullins Beach, som er mere aktiv med en bar / restaurant med bådudlejning, vandscooter og gummibåde til børnene. GGV er inden for 10 minutter af flere berømte golfbaner, herunder Royal West Moreland og Sandy Lane. For shopping, prøv Speightstown der er 5 minutter væk og bevarer den oprindelige charme af øen. Den luksuriøse Lime Grove indkøbscenter med sin designer butikker kan findes i Holetown less10 minutters kørsel væk. Hovedstaden, Bridgetown, er en 30 minutters kørsel med cricket på Oval, hestevæddeløb på Garrison og Barbados Yacht Club. Polo kan findes 20 minutter væk på Holders. Villaen ligger tæt på mange fornemme restauranter samt mere traditionelle barer restauranter og "rom butikker 'med autentiske, velsmagende og billige Bajan køkken. Nogle (Mullins / Bombas) er inden for gåafstand. Selvfølgelig kan du altid hente nogle friskfangede fisk fra en af de mange lokale fisk boder (nærmeste er 2 min kørsel), som du kan grille på gas grill og nyde al fresco i den rolige atmosfære i godt oplyste pool, terrasse og haver. Perfektionere!
