  • A Garden Sanctuary

    "Barabados is blessed with some of the most magnificent beaches in the Caribbean and some of the nicest people in the world. Just a short walk from a lovely beach is Glenville Gardens, overseen by perhaps the nicest people in Barbados, Barbara and Sugrim. Glenville Gardens, a few cottages situated in a beautiful garden, is a soothing environment where one can relax and enjoy the near idyllic Caribbean weather. The garden is a soothing sanctuary for plants, animals, and people. Barbara is an amazing gardener, and the grounds are filled with trees and plants that create a calming oasis and supply the bananas for her delicious homemade banana bread and the fruits (we were there when passion fruit was ripe) she presents as gifts for her guests. A few chickens and turtles are among the unobtrusive but welcome denizens of Glenville Gardens as are many birds, including hummingbirds and bananaquits, and a small group of green monkeys that often pass through the garden though they do not reside there. The cottages (we stayed in Heather), are lovely, well-equipped, and each has an outdoor sitting area. They are also immaculately kept and cleaned. There are communal spaces and a barbecue where guests can socialize if they wish. Privacy or community – it’s up to each guest to decide. This has to be one of the least stressful environments we’ve ever been lucky enough to experience. Glenville Gardens is close to beaches, restaurants, bars, shopping, and the excellent public transportation system that can deliver you from one end of the island to the other. Barbara and Sugrim are perfect hosts. They are hospitable, helpful, friendly, informative, efficient, and just plain wonderful people. Upon arrival, they immediately made us feel welcome and part of the family. When w had to head home, we did not want to leave, not just because we fell in love with Barbados, but because we were enamored with Glenville Gardens, Barbara, and Sugrim."

  • Best of Two Worlds

    "We are a semi retired Canadian couple on a budget with some very specific needs for a vacation home: the need for a dependable internet as one of us needed to be able to work; the desire to experience all of Barbados; a goal to use the time to ‘get into shape’. This apartment/house was all we could have asked for and more. Tucked back in a Bajan neighbourhood on top of the hill above Oistins and the ocean, it is a 10-15 minute walk down to Miami Beach – one of the best beaches on the island. We had the best of two worlds during our 9 week stay: 1. The chance to meet a number of wonderful people who live here year round and quickly acclimatized us to all things Bajan; shopped regularly at the local supermarket just a block away as well as a small vegetable stand close by; watched kids go to and from school every day; and, on Sunday mornings, sat out on the balcony to hear singing from at least 3 churches close by; 2. Down on the beach we met people from all over the world each with their story and a few of whom have become friends; always an active exchange of tips re things to do, good restaurants, etc. Leroy’s place is one side of a duplex with everything you need for a comfortable stay. You feel like you are staying in someone’s home. A well stocked kitchen – important as we cooked most of our meals; Two (!) flat screen TVs with a cable package that included Canadian channels which was so appreciated; a wonderful yard, comfortable beds and air conditioning; Three balconies – one of which was perfect to sit out in the evening with a glass of wine, good friends. We rented a car for two of our 9 weeks – a chance to explore the island. All good! But the best part has really been about the people: Leroy kept in touch - was available, responsive and helpful . He has many good friends on the island: Audrey, who takes care of the house, was also always very responsive and even surprised us by bringing over a Bajan dinner; Rico also lives close by and helped with technical/computer needs (and so much more!) – he has become a good friend; Rowland is a ‘go to’ person picked us up at the airport and made us feel very welcome – always there if we ran into any difficulty. Each of these people were so generous and hospitable and at the same time, very respectful of our privacy and space. We leave with lasting relationships, a deep understanding and appreciation for all of Barbados – island itself and above all, its people."

  • Home away from home!

    "We absolutely enjoyed our stay in Barbados. The owners were very friendly and welcoming and checked up on us to make sure that we were ok and had all that we needed. The first thing that stands out about this vacation home is that it's surrounded by a beautiful garden! There is a parking space for a car if you choose to rent a vehicle. The interior is very clean, comfortable and cozy. We loved that it's self contained and we could make our own meals if so desired. Having the laundry facilities at our disposal was great! Location, location, location; within walking distance to the beach, grocery, bars, restaurants and one of the south coast's favourite spots....St. Lawrence Gap! I highly recommend this vacation spot to anyone who's looking for a totally relaxed time in Barbados. C & D"
