"Heather and Dave, the contacts in Holetown, were helpful throughout the holiday regarding check-out, groceries, additional towels etc. Dave will also organise car hire.

The maid service was incredible, the villa was spotless. 

Our only regret is that we didn't book 3 weeks.

This was a half term, one week holiday, the Holetown festival was in full swing and there was so much to do. Free concerts, stalls, the place was buzzing.
Daybreak is a 5 min. walk to town and beach and yet so peaceful and quiet. The pool is lovely, bedrooms have excellent air-conditioning and the villa has so much space to relax. If you do want a quiet corner to read there are plenty of those.

The garden and surrounding area is beautiful and we felt very safe walking at night. The streets are well lit and the villa itself has plenty of security including a safe.  

Holetown full of lovely restaurants in all price ranges and the street food & Just Grillin a cheap family favourite.

A brilliant holiday and we intend to rebook ASAP".

Amanda - Wales, UK. February 2015.



“Dear Irene,

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Daybreak.

We had a great time and managed to get our third and final son married off during our stay.

We found your web site informative and we made our decision to rent the villa based on the information provided. 

The information you provided prior to our holiday was excellent.

The accommodation was exactly as we expected – and we enjoyed the good wi-fi access in the villa.

The swimming pool was a great addition.

Please pass our thanks on to the owners. We enjoyed our stay immensely and look forward to going again in a couple of years time when my finances have recovered sufficiently.

Kind regards”,

Paul & family – East Sussex, UK. April 2014.


"We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Daybreak. The location, facilities and villa were perfect.

 Local property managers, Heather and Dave, were friendly and helpful and always available if required.

 I would not hesitate to recommend a stay in this villa to anyone visiting Barbados I hope to return here in the future".

Philip - UK. March 2014.

"Superb, a great place to stay, within walking distance to Holetown. This three bedroom bungalow is well equipped & the new swimming pool only adds to the holiday experience. We used the BBQ as much as possible & were very lucky to see the monkeys stroll through the garden on a couple of occasions. I would recommend this bungalow without hesitation".

V . Stewart - UK. February 2014.


"Hi Irene,

Just to let you know that we had a wonderful time in 'Daybreak Villa'. It was ideally located for easy walking distance to all the bars, restaurants, shops and beaches.

We were well looked after by Heather, Dave and Rose who were always just a 'phone call away.

Our day trips were excellent - especially the catamaran and 'round the island' taxi trip.

Best wishes",

Gerry, Barbara & friends - Hampshire, UK. Dec. 2013/Jan. 2014.


"The last two years have seen us visit this beautiful island staying at this villa in Holetown, St. James.

Set in superb surroundings the villa has everything to set you up for enjoying the local amenities - with spacious living accommodation complimented by delightful outside dining facilities and swimming pool.

Glorious beaches and numerous shops are within easy walking distance - with as cheap a bus service to anywhere on the island as is possible.

A wonderful spot with friendly locals and a super villa to come back to - what more could you wish for".

Russ & Marg - UK. December 2013.


"Stayed in this very large villa for 18 days and had a great time. Location was perfect and only took us an 8 min walk to shops and the beach we used. The new pool was a great unexpected bonus, and would recommend the villa to anyone".

Peter - UK. November 2013.



We enjoyed our stay at Daybreak and the information you provided beforehand was very useful.

Thank you".

BB - Leeds, UK. March/April 2012.


"Hi Irene,

We really enjoyed Daybreak - and would go back !

The holiday was fantastic and I've been very impressed by the villa and how helpful you have been.

Thank you for all the information and e-mails you sent. I will recommend you to anyone going to Barbados and hopefully we will be back soon !

Thanks again".

CO - Glasgow, UK. March 2011.


"Dear Irene,

I wish to express my gratitude at your efficiency and guidance in booking with Bajan Retreats, and the excellent facilities at Daybreak which contributed greatly in helping my family and myself have an excellent vacation.

My nephews (2, 5 & 10 years) all got up early to enjoy the daily carnival of monkeys parading past the house !!

My only regret is that it all had to end !

Thank you very much, I have nothing but praise for my time spent at Daybreak. I will indeed be recommending Bajan Retreats. (Although I am tempted to keep 'gems' like you, your husband Peter and Daybreak a closely guarded secret).

Many thanks for all your help and a great holiday”.
