Situated in a quiet cul-de-sac off a palm tree-lined residential avenue in Sunset Crest - within the parish of St. James - on Barbados’ beautiful 'platinum' west coast.

"Aqua Bliss is a great relaxing place. We just wanted a chill out week and this is what we got. We spent the days by the private secluded pool. Very quiet. In the evenings we wandered into Holetown for food or entertainment. 1st Street is a must on Sunday evening if you are looking for a lively time. We are already looking at dates to come back out again."

"We had a wonderful time at Aqua Bliss.

The villa is lovely and we felt really at home from the moment we arrived to the moment we left.

The location is perfect and it is very quiet and peaceful. We slept in the en suite room and the bed was very comfortable - which to us is extremely important !

The wifi worked brilliantly. That was handy as I had to keep an eye on my business.

We were visited by the monkeys most days, which we thoroughly enjoyed.

The villa is within walking distance of everything, including a great beach.

We love Holetown and always holiday in that area, so I'm sure we will return in the not too distant future".

"Very pleased with our stay at Aqua Bliss villa.

The location was great, on the west coast, within short walking distance of Holetown with is shops and restaurants. The villa was well-appointed with air conditioning in the bedrooms - and good wifi.

The villa manager was very attentive if anything was needed, and the housekeeper came in twice a week.

The pool was a good size and completely private - no overlooked at all.

The kitchen was well-equipped and the beds were comfortable.

The location was ideal for exploring the island.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay an would recommend the villa to anyone seeking a private location, close to amenities".

"Everything was fine.

Property well kept and house enjoyable".

"We are a family with two teenagers and we enjoyed a wonderful holiday at Aqua Bliss.

We very much appreciated the space, beautifully kept garden and good size pool.

We were thrilled to be visited both by the monkeys - and an ice cream van !

It was a short stroll to restaurants, shops, beach and taxis.

Excellent location in a quiet neighbourhood".

Julia . B . March 2017.


"We loved Aqua Bliss and its location - very peaceful and secure feeling. The pool was larger than expected and so that was a real bonus. The house was exactly as described.

We loved the limes and enjoyed cooking our evening meals.

Best wishes and thank you for the brilliant service we have had from yourselves - from our initial enquiry to when we returned home".

"Contentment !! Best place ever.

What can I say ? I discovered this paradise 6 years ago and have returned every year since then, 'my home away from home.'

Perfectly located within walking distance to the fabulous Sandy Lane Beach, a block away from Sunset Crest Mall, 2 blocks from a supermarket and restaurants and 4 blocks from Limegrove Lifestyle Centre, where you'll find Cartier, Gucci, Bvlgari and the like.

The villa itself is wonderful, clean and stocked with amenities, it is on a quiet cul de sac with fruit bearing trees, the most refreshing pool and an occasional monkey. The property manager, Heather is hands on and available to address all questions and concerns and Emerald is there to change linens and towels every 3 or 4 days. But don't take my word for it, just go and see for yourself. You won't be disappointed !!"

"Aqua Bliss... definitely bliss !

We liked the look of this villa as it looked smaller than the ones we've had before. We were wrong, it was a lovely large sized villa with decent sized bedrooms, kitchen and living area.

We were greeted by the lovely Heather who showed us around, explaining what we needed to know about the place. Heather stayed in contact with us with regards to when the cleaner was coming. She also sorted a few minor issues we had very promptly and is such a lovely helpful lady.

The villa itself was kept very clean, was well equipped with kitchen items and items in the living area (TV, Internet etc.)
The outside dining area was used by us every night, whether it was to eat or just sit and have a few sociable drinks. The pool area was well maintained and was cleaned whilst we were there. The pool was used by us all every single day even on those days when we went to the beach as my daughter just loved playing in it.

I would definitely recommend this property to my family and friends as it is situated in a lovely quiet area and only a 10 minute walk to the nearest beach and shopping facilities. Some of our favourites being Zaccios, Surfside and The Beach House.

We will definitely be back, thank you all for such a wonderful stay in Barbados !"

" This was our 3rd stay at Aqua Bliss.

The villa has a private pool and a open air dining room next to it. That's where we spent most of our time at the villa - either in the pool or in the dining room beside it.

Bedrooms are large and comfortable, kitchen is fully stocked and modern, living room and TV etc. are also pleasant and provide anything desired.

The neighborhood is quiet. We heard no barking dogs, only tree frogs.

There are several beaches nearby as well as further towards Bridgetown or to the north.

Restaurants nearby were good with views of the sea.

The main road has access to anywhere on the island. Twice we drove out to The Crane for rum punch, lunch, and to fight with big waves".

"Wonderful Holiday at Aqua Bliss Villa.

We had such an awesome time. The place was everything we hoped for, it was well equipped, clean and well maintained. The location was perfect, walking distance to everything. We heard about this villa from a friend who stays there every year and decided to try it. We especially liked the early morning pool swims with breakfast and the sunset swims with cocktails. Dining under the stars on the pool deck was amazing. There is a BBQ grill that was really put to use during our stay.

The beaches are quite close, only a short walk away and they are stunning, I especially liked the beach at Sandy Lane. You should also visit the other beaches on other parts of the island.

 Heather, the villa manager, was very accommodating and responded to any questions or concerns that we had.

I will definitely return and will recommend Aqua Bliss to friends".
