THE LOCATION:-

Situated in Holetown on Barbados' beautiful 'platinum' west coast, within the parish of St. James, Alamanda is situated in a palm tree-lined residential avenue only 100 metres from the superb white sandy beaches - washed by the crystal-clear blue waters of the Caribbean Sea.  

Many activities including scuba diving, catamaran trips, jet skis and glass bottomed boat trips are available on the west coast. Snorkel off the beach amongst the colourful tropical fish and watch the huge frigate birds soaring overhead or diving into the sea to catch fish. Turtles swim in the shallows off the west coast beaches so you may be lucky enough to encounter them whilst paddling or swimming.

Two world-class golf courses - The Royal Westmoreland and Sandy Lane - are within easy reach. 

An excellent selection of restaurants to suit all tastes and budgets are located in Sunset Crest & Holetown. Other amenities including the Limegrove Lifestyle Centre - with its shops, cafes & cinemas, plus lots more - bars, banks, a supermarket, mini markets, a butchers, an ice cream parlour, wine shops, fruit and veg. stalls, bakeries, coffee shops, a Post Office, medical centres, the Chattel Village shops (offering everything from souvenirs to gourmet food), and Sunset Mall - a shopping plaza with a small department store (Cave Shepherd) and a cafe plus other outlets - are also within easy walking distance.

The comments shown below have been received via e-mail since 2016. Other guests have chosen to add their comments to the Guest Book within the property (if a Guest Book is provided).

"Hi Irene

We had a great holiday. Thank you for making all of the arrangements for us.

By the way, we were very impressed with the new Massy supermarket in Holetown".

Eric & Margaret - Cheshire, UK. December 2018. (Repeat guests).

 

"We have just returned from our second stay at Alamanda.

The villa is positioned within a quiet residential neighbourhood, only a few minutes walk to the beach and the centre of Holetown.

Car hire is not necessary unless you want to explore the island as the bus service is great.

Alamanda has three good sized bedrooms with air conditioning, a lovely outside pool with covered veranda area and electric gates giving extra security.

Simon, the villa manager, and his wife greeted us on arrival - and Penny kept the villa spotless.

I would not hesitate to recommend this villa and look forward to returning soon".

Caroline. November 2017.

 

"Hi Irene

Alamanda is a superb villa ! Spacious, well equipped and simply furnished. We couldn't have asked for a better location.

You have an excellent, informative website. Our local travel agents, who have a strong reputation for individual travel and a Barbados "expert" seemed completely inadequate compared to your very personal service.

Thanks for organising the pick-up at the airport.

We had a fantastic holiday thanks to your website, emails and 'Useful information pack'.

Barbados is such a beautiful place. We took your advice and hired our car for 3 days of our stay. We found everybody spontaneous and helpful on our travels.

Thanks again for organising such a wonderful holiday. Your enthusiasm for Barbados is infectious !"

Andrew & Alison - Kent, UK. July 2017.

 

"Great villa in a perfect location with everything you would need, within a 5 minute walk of beautiful beaches, shops, restaurants, park, supermarket, buses and church.

The villa was ideal for our whole family - especially with the pool.

Help and information was offered and given by the manager and Penny, the wonderful maid.

We would recommend this to everyone wanting a relaxing holiday in paradise !"

Wendy & family. April 2017.

 

"We have just had a wonderful stay at Alamanda.

Lovely villa, spacious with a great pool.

The location of the villa is amazing, very near the beach and the lovely town.

I have to say what made our stay was the villa manager, Simon, who cannot do enough for you to ensure your stay is the best. Also Penny, the housekeeper, for again looking after us and making sure the villa was spotless.

We will be returning to Alamanda !"

Jane . T . March 2017.

 

"Hi Irene,

We were very pleased with Alamanda. Lovely villa in a great spot. Difficult to tear yourself away from the pool. Also we must say that the restaurants bars and cafes in Lime Grove certainly add to the Holetown experience.

We thought all your info was exemplary and it was a pleasure dealing with you. We would certainly recommend you".

Gerry & Pam - Cardiff, UK. October 2016.

 

"This is a lovely villa in Holetown which has some super shops and restaurants - the walk takes 
a few minutes.

The villa is on a residential road next to other bungalows and behind it is the local cricket pitch
which is used regularly and so you feel close to the community.

We spent 2 weeks here and the villa was very spacious for our family of 5.... 2 daughters aged 
21 years and 17 years and elderly mother.

The swimming pool is a great asset and the sun loungers and outdoor furniture were very 
accommodating, however the beautiful beaches and crystal clear sea is just a few mins. away, across the road and walk at the side of Discovery Bay Hotel.

We were well looked after by the villa manager Simon who was most helpful - and the maid, Avril who cleaned twice a week.

As the villa is so close to the amenities of Holetown, you don't need a car, however we hired one for a week to explore the island which was so interesting. We didn't take the buses but they are cheap and regular - but seemed to travel very fast !!

We all enjoyed our holiday in Barbados". 


Katrina . K . - Manchester, UK. August 2016.



"Fabulous location, beaches, bars, restaurants, shops all within walking distance but 
quiet enough not to disturb you.


Top notch property with lovely outside area and pool. Everything you need and more. Already booked for next year".

Herts, UK. March 2016.

 

"Great location and facilities. Alamanda is well-maintained and equipped".

Sam - London, UK. February/March 2016.
