Dear Sophie (Housekeeper) Thank you so much for your faithful service to us while we stayed in Barbados...you took such good care of us, and we are grateful! One of the things i have loved about this trip has been talking to you and getting to know you a bit. It has been a privilege to meet you and you have gone above and beyond to make our stay a wonderful one! Thank you so much!

On arrival we were greeted by Nadia the concierge, Anna the professional chef, Sophie the house keeper and Henderson the chief of security. They were all so professional and polite. They gave us a tour and we instantly knew we were in the best of hands. The villa was pristine. After the tour a delicious supper awaited us. Through out the week, we were treated to delicious Bajan delicacies. Anna is a graduate of culinary training. We treated each other as family. We even went to the market together and walked around Bridgetown. Being treated kindly was the norm for us in Barbados. Due to my friendship with the High Commissioner of Barbados to Canada, the second day we were picked up and given an all day tour of Barbados by the former Minister of Health and Justice. He was very impressed by our accommodations. The villa is huge,ultra modern and is directly on the ocean with a spectacular view. Favorite service: The professional chef - Anna. She took great pride in her work. She loved her work and it showed.

Wonderfully relaxing and everything taken care of.” A wonderfully personalized, relaxing and hassle free family holiday at an exclusive Caribbean beachside property, overlooking the Caribbean Sea and away from the bustling crowds. Favorite activity: Seeing the beaming smiles on my daughters’ faces as they charged up and down on a remote island beach on horseback and joining in on a snorkeling trip to swim with turtles.

Perfect, peaceful, private get away. We had a most amazing trip to Barbados. Everything we did was exceptional. Snorkeling, swimming with the turtles, jet skiing, boat riding. We also loved our housekeeper and cook. It was so awesome to have all our laundry done for us everyday and have meals cooked for us each day.
