"We stayed here for 6 days in July, 2012. The property Manager, Jacqui, was very patent, most helpful and accommodating. The home is in a quiet neighbourhood and just a 5 minute walk from a lovely beach and a 2 minute drive north of Holetown. We stayed in the three-bedroom apartment which was very spacious, clean, well-maintained, and had a very breezy patio on the east side of the home. There are several restaurants to chose from in Holetown or in Speighstown located 10 minutes to the north. All listed amenities were available and functional."Guest: Alvin Date of Stay: July 2012 Review Submitted: August 5, 2012View listing
"outstanding property, tastefully furnished and extremely well-equipped villa in a beautiful, serene and relaxing setting. The villa itself is spacious and modern with 3 large bed-rooms, each with its own large bathroom and walk in closet and an elegant spacious living area with large windows affording amazing views of a lovely golf course. We don't golf but really enjoyed staying at the Royal Westmoreland. The pool/grounds/beach access were outstanding. We loved grilling and eating at home and enjoying the lovely view. The caretaker was great, folded our laundry and made us a truly delicious Bajan meal one night, the best meal we had the whole trip (we hired her extra for this, it was affordable well worth it). well-equipped with books, movies, beach toys, a cooler to take to the beach, ice packs, high-end cooking/kitchen supplies, new grill, robes in the bedrooms. Helpful, responsive, gracious owner. Overall, quite a treat and an excellent value."Guest: susan k. Date of Stay: April 2011 Review Submitted: May 2, 2011View listing
"Just got back from my second stay at Cherub House. First time being August 2011, enjoyed our stay so much, that there was no doubt in our minds where we wanted to be so we booked a week stay again August 2012. Cherub House is beautiful inside and out. Love the way it combines luxury with a homely feel. The villa is so spacious that the family didn't feel like we were on top of one another but not so big that we felt distant from one another. Cherub House is situated in a peaceful and beautiful spot. Outside there are stunning views of the surrounding garden and golf course. The swimming pool is a great size and ideal for both children and adults. The villa is beautifully presented, clean and well cared for. The bedrooms are all great sizes and all have en-suite bathrooms. The living area is a comfortable and relaxing space and flows nicely to the dining room and kitchen. The kitchen is a great size and has all the gadgets you would expect.The housekeeper Trina, is lovely, polite, friendly and so helpful. Such a hard working lady, that sometimes we forgot she was even there. Very work proud, which is evident in all that she does, including cleaning, washing and ironing. My kids adored her and would talk to her non-stop, which never seemed to bother her. Cherub House has the added benefit of a separate self contained 2 bed cottage. Ideal for extended family members or friends. It is also a great space for the kids to watch telly during the day away from the adults. The cottage also has its own kitchen and living room. Being situated in Royal Westmoreland, you are close to the restaurants, beaches and the wonderful shops at Limegrove. I cannot recommend Cherub House highly enough. If you are looking for a relaxing, clean, well maintained place to stay, with excellent facilities and housekeeper, with the added luxury feel, then this is the places for you. I will definitely be booking Cherub House again for my next visit to Barbados."Guest: Sugars05 Date of Stay: August 2012 Review Submitted: August 26, 2012View listing
"My sisters and I rented this townhome for our celebration of my 50th birthday in Barbados and we enjoyed it tremendously. We rented a car and had difficulty finding the unit but the friendly residents in Barbados offered to call Maureen and actually have us follow them to the unit. Maureen was very helpful in getting us keys and information on the unit. It was clean and well furnished. The location is great, with the beach just across the road which had rental chairs and umbrellas, the bus stop where we rode the yellow buses was within walking distance, great restaurants and food. The plunge pool was great to cool off. Our favorite restaurant was the Tides in Holetown which offered excellent food and service. Overall I don't think I can say anything bad, our time here was wizzo (fabulous)."Guest: Jill & Hunter Date of Stay: August 2014 Review Submitted: August 22, 2014View listing
