"Hi Irene & Peter,

We had another wonderful holiday - thank you !

The villa was lovely - and as expected. The location and space was perfect for our needs - and represents good value for money.

Wonderful service as usual. We'll be booking with you again - and would certainly stay at Bliss Villa again.

With very best wishes",

Sally, Jeff, Hazel & Rob - London, UK & Canada. March 2018. (Repeat guests).


"Had a wonderful time.

Perfect location close to everything !

We walked or took the buses. Did not need a car.

Great restaurants, beaches, grocery store and shops all within walking distance".

Lisa. M . March 2018.


"This villa is just great....the pictures don't do it justice.

Everything was superb....the service, property manager and the location which is very convenient. Close to the beach and great restaurants.

If I am back in Barbados, I will definitely go back there.

Thank for a wonderful holiday".

Junior G. August 2017.


"I visited your web site and found all of the information I needed on it.

We had stayed at Bliss Villa before and were happy to find everything as we remembered when we arrived this time. The new sunbeds were very comfortable !

The mini market at the petrol station had a good range of products apart from fruit and veg'. The ladies were selling fruit and veg' from their stalls by the medical centre and a van called by the villa a couple of times a week selling fresh produce too. The mini bus to Warrens was good too, dropping us back at the villa on the way home."

Alison - Gwynedd, UK. Jun/Jul. 2017.


"Thank you for all your help with this holiday.

We enjoyed our stay at Bliss Villa once again - no complaints".

Bob & Chris - West Sussex, UK. Nov/Dec. 2016.


"Superbly situated, comfortable villa.

We had a great time at Bliss villa. The description was accurate and facilities etc. were all as described.

The property was lovely and clean and kept so by Emerald's frequent visits.

The pool sets it apart from neighbouring villas, and is much needed in the heat ! 

We will definitely recommend it to anyone we know who would like to visit Barbados.


Kath and Colin. November 2016.

"Hi Irene,


Thank you for facilitating our holiday. Your service was as efficient as ever.
Bliss Villa has everything you could need and the accommodation certainly matched our expectations.

We loved it and had a great time".

Fiona & Mark - Cheshire, UK. April/May 2016.


"Hi Irene,


Your website - and the details and information you provided - were really well done.
We received lots of useful information from you, including a map of the area which was great.

Regarding the villa itself, it was lovely, very clean and spacious. On the whole it was very comfy and the kitchen was well equipped.

The location was peaceful and it was easy to get into Holetown and you didn't need a car, so all good points.

We will be recommending to our friends.


Zoe & Matthew - Essex, UK. December 2015/January 2016.



"Hello Irene

We wanted to write to say thank you for organising the perfect holiday for us. From start to finish you were brilliant and your knowledge of Barbados is second-to-none.

The accommodation was fantastic and had everything we needed. There wasn't a point where we felt we were missing anything.

We had a fantastic week and everything was perfect and completely stress-free. It was great that you had organised for us to be picked up at the airport by Harold (who also took us back) and we were met at Bliss villa by Heather, who had arranged for the delivery of our welcome pack, exactly as you said. Heather was lovely and welcoming and it was good to know she was just a phone call away should we have needed anything.

The villa was fab. and the photos don't do it justice- it is even better than the photographs show. It was wonderful to have our own private pool and the BBQ was great to have too. The location was superb, with everything being a short walk away and we appreciated being able to use the facilities at The Beach House too. The beach was stunning and the water so clear and there were lots of water sports and activities on offer too. It was also handy to have your restaurant recommendations too so thank you for those.

You supplied everything we needed and more. The welcome pack was incredibly useful and thoughtful to send out to guests.

We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday and can't recommend Barbados highly enough. It is a wonderful island and we are very thankful and appreciative of all your help and organisation. We will be recommending you to anyone looking to visit Barbados and we hope we will be able to return again in the future.

Kind Regards",

Ross, Donna, Becky & Ian - Kirkcaldy, Scotland. November 2015.
"Hi Irene,
Bliss Villa met all of our expectations and more.

It was spotlessly clean and we were visited on about three occasions each by the cleaner, gardener and pool cleaner while we were there.

The kitchen is extremely well equipped and the garden and grounds are beautiful. We would (and already have) recommended it to family and friends.

The information we were sent before our holiday could not be faulted. We got lots of useful advice and information from you - and could get a feel for the layout of the resort etc. before arriving.

We would like to add that Heather was extremely helpful and accommodating to us, particularly when our flight was delayed and she made arrangements to ensure that we could stay on in the villa as long as possible.

The gardener, Clifton, was very friendly and even lent us his SatNav for a few days to help us get around the Island to sightsee. And the taxi driver that you recommended, Harold, was very flexible and prompt - both picking us up from the airport and at the end of our holiday when he picked us up from the villa to go back when our times changed twice.

All in all, a fantastic holiday and we would definitely love to come back".
Nigel - Derbyshire, UK. April 2015.
The property was lovely. 
Everything was great and we enjoyed our stay very much".


James - Ontario, Canada. April 2015.


"Amazing wonderful villa - so close to everything.

Awesome. 10 days in Holetown and our beautiful Bliss Villa. We are now back in Canada and cannot say enough about our amazing stay.

From the access to the fantastic Beach Club to the green monkeys in the garden and the awesome pool and gardens. We met and made friends at the Beach Club.

We loved the walk to the beach, the supermarket and the town. We took the local buses and hired a car. Going to Bathsheba and Bridgetown.

We ate outside by the pool at Bliss Villa and enjoyed the beautiful gardens. Home from home and so comfortable.

Thanks to Heather and William, our taxi guy, for making our holiday one to remember. You made us feel so welcome. I will always remember the day we left.... sitting on the patio chatting with them both.

We will be back".

YM & AM - Ontario & Alberta, Canada. November 2014.

"My family and I shared an excellent holiday experience at Bliss Villa. As a visitor from another Caribbean island I must compliment the owner for delivering an accommodation package as described. The villa is a maximum 15 mins from Bridgetown and 5 mins from the centre of Holetown.

The interior of the villa is spacious - the pics. are not a good reflection of its size. The bedrooms were very tidy and comfortable. The two bathrooms were a plus and the kitchen is roomy and adequately stocked with utensils. Thumbs up for the washer/dryer which is helpful when traveling with children.

The pool was the icing on the cake as any time not spent on the beaches was spent in the pool. The kids thoroughly enjoyed it. It was kept clean and maintained during our stay.

Overall I would recommend for any visitors with family and also persons not wishing to rent a car".

OH - Trinidad, West Indies. July 2014.


"Dear Irene,

Your web site and Info are still useful and up-to-date.

Maid, pool men and garden keeper are
friendly but discrete and efficient.
Everything was correct & good at Bliss Villa.

Your website is very well done...we hope you stay long time in business".

Jocelyn & Ginette - Quebec, Canada. April/May 2014. (3rd visit).   


“Hi Irene,

We enjoyed our stay at Bliss Villa. The pool was a very welcome treat.

Emerald, the housekeeper was a joy and did her job. She was very pleasant as are any Bajans we met.

 We found the villa very nice and we would stay again if we wanted a two bedroom Villa.

It has been a pleasure doing business with you.

Thank you again”,

 May, Tom & friends – Ontario, Canada. February/March 2014.


"We thoroughly enjoyed the villa again".

Karen, Bob & friends - Doncaster, UK. January 2014.


"Irene, your information & correspondence were excellent.

We really enjoyed our stay. Fantastic location, lovely pool & gardens.

We will be back" !

Steve - Frodsham, UK. December 2013.


"Hi Irene,

You provided an excellent service, communications and information pack. The pool at Bliss Villa was fantastic. We will return".

Denise & family - Surrey, UK. November/December 2013.


"We enjoyed our time in Barbados very much and everything was fine.

The weather was fantastic - villa and pool too. No problems at all. It was wonderful and we will definitely be back.

Thank you again for your easy booking and information pack.

Best wishes",


Julie & Tom Webb - Cambridge, UK. November/December 2012.


“Bliss house was the perfect getaway for my partner, 5 year old step daughter and I. We enjoyed the open house concept, and appreciated the security of the wrought iron gates that let air and light in but that made us feel as though we were living outside. The house is well lit and feels very safe.

The pool was a dream for our daughter and we used it several times a day, it was so beautiful and refreshing. The bedrooms have excellent air conditioning so it is easy to manage a good mosquito-free sleep. The bedrooms are away from the road, so it is quiet. There are two bathrooms which makes it ideal for a family to manage showers etc. The kitchen is clean and well-equipped. There is a reliable washing machine and dryer.

The villa is very clean and feels well maintained. We are so close to all the restaurants and grocery store in Sunset Crest - the location is ideal. We will definitely return ! We had a ball !”

Kat. B. August 2012.


 “We enjoyed our stay and we would definitely recommend the Bliss Villa. Everything worked out as expected, location was perfect and villa itself cozy, clean and fully equipped.

Beautiful patio, garden and a pool area completed the experience of perfect vacation home.

We couldn't be more satisfied and if we have possibility to travel to Barbados again, the Bliss Villa would be definitely our choice. Thank you !”

Kati. P.  July 2012.


"Your Website is done like a pro. And the photos are up to date. Keep on in business !
Everything was great as it was last yeat. The maid is still wonderful, just like all Bajan people.
We would like to return around the same dates next year".  

Jocelyn & Ginette - Quebec, Canada. April 2012. (2nd visit).   


"We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Bliss Villa, and couldn't have been made more welcome.

We had everything we needed and everything worked well.

Pam & I and our daughter, Katy, & her partner, Phil, had a wonderful holiday and Bliss Villa certainly lived up to our expectations.  

Your info. pack was excellent and gave us a great introduction to Barbados. Everything we could have possibly wished to know was covered in it.

Katy & Phil made very good use of the beach club facility whilst Pam & I visited many of the attractions and beaches and made good use of the pool. We found the prices at restaurants on the high side although very good. We were very pleased to have the BBQ facilities at the villa which we made good use of on about 5 occasions when we didn't sample the restaurants in the evenings.

Highlights of the attractions for Pam & I were Huntes Garden, Floral Forest, Welchman's Gully, Andromeda Gardens and Harrison's Cave. We also enjoyed visits to St. Nicholas Plantation & Distillery, and  a walking tour of Bridgetown. We visited many beaches and found the east coast scenery spectacular. Bottom Bay was one of our favourites. I think we were also lucky that the Holetown Festival started towards the end of our stay and we attended the opening ceremony with the steel bands. We were also very pleased with the car supplied by Rudy Ballantyne.

I hope we'll get another chance to revisit Barbados and it was also a pleasure to arrange our holiday through your excellent services and Bajan Retreats.

With Best wishes",


Jim, Pam, Katy & Phil - Cheshire, UK. January/February 2012.


"Great villa.

Having been to Barbados more than 20 times I have finally found somewhere comfortable, private, clean, and well equipped.

The villa is located on a quiet residential street in Sunset Crest, within walking distance of Holetown beaches, restaurants and shops.

A large lounge area, great outdoor seating terrace and BBQ. Lovely pool.

We were greeted by Louis who was very pleasant and informal, and Emerald the maid, worked well without ever getting in our way.

Both bedrooms are a good size, 1 with en-suite, both with air-con.

The facilities were very good, well equipped, reliable internet wifi, CD player and ipod dock. 

 I loved everything about the villa and am sure we will return.


James. M. - UK. December 2011.


"Just wanted to drop you a line following our fantastic holiday in Bliss Villa in Barbados. It's just to say thank you and everything was perfect - thanks to Louis and the housekeeper for looking after us - we are already planning our next trip so we will hopefully be in touch again !!"

R & I - Durham, UK. July/August 2011.


"The warm reception we received from Louis, the manager, set the scene for one of the best vacations we have had in a long time.

We have always stayed in hotels but chose a villa this time. Bliss Villa is just that.. blissful. This villa's size layout and decor was perfect, fitting the description.

Waking up to our own private pool and breakfast on the patio is a holidaymakers heaven.

The villa is within walking distance to some of the best places to eat, shop and the beach....
The garden is beautiful, lots of heliconias and bouganvillea in bloom.

Really a great place to stay and be safe in Barbados as special attention is paid to security.

Go enjoy Bliss Villa today".

Mary. M. – Dominica. June 2011.

"Hello Irene,

                        Connie and I and our guests were delighted with Bliss Villa. It was just as advertised. Please tell the owner that the villa and especially the pool are just delightful. 

Your customer service is simply exemplary and the information you provided ahead of time could not have been more helpful. Bravo.

The pick-up at the airport on arrival worked perfectly as did the delivery of our rental car to the villa on the day of arrival..

            Thank you for your very professional and personalized service to your clients. Were we ever to take such a vacation again, we would not hesitate to work through you and re-rent Bliss Villa.

Best regards",

Alden - MA, USA. March/April 2011.


"The villa was beautiful - everything clean and well maintained.

We met the cleaner, Brenda, the manager, Louis and the pool guy who were all friendly, helpful and charming".

Fiona - London, UK. March 2011.


“We return every March for a one-week stay. Been doing this since 2004. Just booked for this year too. Great value. It's located in a quiet safe residential neighbourhood in Holetown (a trendy west coast village) with a short walk to the beach, major grocery store, restaurants.

Although there is lots to do, we mostly hang by the pool and grill fresh fish on the BBQ.

David. W. March 2011.


"The villa was as lovely as we remembered it.

Louis, the manager, and Brenda, the housekeeper, were wonderful.

Everything was great.

It's a pleasure to book with you Irene. I always appreciate your prompt and courteous responses. I'm looking forward to planning our next Barbados vacation.

Thanks again !"

Ian & family - Staffs, UK.

“Hi Irene,

Arrived back safe and sound....we had a fabulous holiday. Everything about the holiday was great…. the villa, the location and of course the weather !

Harold, the taxi driver that you had pre-booked, was waiting for us at the other end. and the owner's representative was waiting for us at the villa. Because Monday was a Bank Holiday, she was very helpful and drove Maureen round to the store so we could stock up on provisions.  I had a big birthday (60) on the Wednesday and Maureen had arranged a surprise helicopter trip round the island for us and that was rounded off by dinner at The Tides. All in all, a great holiday and we hope to return sometime in the future.

Many thanks and best regards”.

Val & Terry - Chester, UK.


"Returned today from a fabulous holiday at Bliss Villa in Barbados. The
villa was super and spotlessly clean.  We spent a great deal of time in
the lovely garden.

The  Holetown festival was on, as was the St. James Church Garden Fete
at which we bought banana and pumpkin cakes.

The people are so friendly and we hope to return some day soon.  We will
not hesitate in recommending the villa to all our friends.

Many, many thanks".
