Overview

About the property

13 Person Accommodation - 5 persons for Unit A and 8 persons for Unit B

Maya's Bajan Villas Inc, located overlooking Maxwell, Christ Church, offers a luxurious yet quaint rental opportunity to people looking for a private getaway for short and long terms periods.

The villa building is two levels, each of which has its own entrance and primary facilities. Each can be rented independently or together.

Each storey has it's own unique features. The top villa B unit boasts lofted ceilings, open concept kitchen, dining, and living space, four bedrooms, wash room, and private patios. The lower level villa A unit offers open concept entertainment value with sunken living and dining rooms, common wash room, powder room, kitchen with full bar, wired stereo, a master bedroom with en suite bathroom, a large second bedroom, and private patios. Shared features include: laundry, outdoor shower, exterior barbecue, a covered, vented, two-car garage, and spacious front and back yards.

True Bajan Feel and Atmosphere: On site you can enjoy the comforts of home with laundry, clean off your salt and sand with an outdoor shower, and kick up your feet on expansive patio spaces or open concept living.

Waking up for a morning walk to the beach and being greeted by the locals 100% of the time is heart-warming. A local pub, Oistens Fish Market, and their famous Friday night Fish Fry, a grocery store, are all steps away. The St. Lawrence Gap is only a 15 minute walk away.

Why Barbados?: Travelling to Barbados for almost 40 years tells you enough. Many things may have changed over the years however, the undeniable true characteristics that have remained are the people and culture of Barbados. They are second to none. Salt of the earth. Being located directly on the ocean did not interest us very much. Do not get us wrong, the beaches and the ocean beauty are second to none in the Caribbean but to truly experience the sweetness of Barbados is to experience it directly within the Bajan Culture.

Choosing a property that allowed us to mix with the locals and live with the locals was paramount in our property purchase.

The Owners: We are a well travelled family who enjoy the many wonderful joys that the world, and life, has to offer. The relaxed and peaceful Caribbean culture is one of our favourite loves.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just a note to,let you know what an amazing time we had in Barbados. The people are one of the friendliest we have met in our travels. I can't say enough about the food, Cafe Sol and Oistins we were at at least 6 times each. Every time we got off the bus in the evening we stopped at Breezers for a couple of rum and coke, and ate there often.



Did the caves, the wildlife reserve and I'm sure we hit most of the beaches. Toured the entire island, I think 5 times. Toured St, Nicholas Abbey and bought their 12 year old wine, had our bottle engraved.



Kent played pool with the locals at The Pool Hall in downtown Bridgetown a number of times, and I played the poker slots, the people were so friendly.



Our company, other than the kids were all from Alberta, so it took them quite some time to get there, the red eye from Calgary to Toronto and then the 5 hour flight from Toronto early in the morning to Barbados, but they all had a great time.



Your Villa is beautiful, has everything you could possibly want.

Once again, thank you for a wonderful stay!

Wonderful Villa

  • 5 of 5

One month in Barbados - what could be better - well this villa made it better. There were four (and sometimes six) of us staying in the upper unit of the villa and it was just as advertised. It was bright and airy; extremely clean; the beds comfortable; the kitchen well equipped; and it was close to the local minibus transportation (just US$1 per trip) which picks you up and lets you off anywhere you want from Oistins to Bridgetown. Local buses were the same price to attractions all over the island. We didn't need air conditioning in the villa as with the windows open there was a comfortable breeze blowing through. The owner, Ed, was prompt in answering questions and provided links and lots of Barbados information. The managers, Jonathan and Sonia, were extremely helpful and provided all we asked for. We would definitely recommend this villa to anyone wanting to spend time in Barbados.

Real Barbados

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed a guys getaway here at Maya's Bajan Villas and I can`t recommend it highly enough. Clean, breezy, spacious, a home away from home in a tropical paradise. The property is as close to the real Barbados as a visitor can get and makes a great base to explore the island and have an alternative to the typical sheltered beachfront all-inclusive. Beaches are definitely there; the local one down at the end of the street or the trendier Dover beach and the Gap a few minutes drive further. Try one of the local minivan taxis for a ridiculously cheap mode of transport to all the resorts, beaches and sights that puts you in touch with the true local experience. On other islands this might not be a good thing, but not in Barbados. The people make this place awesome. They are the most friendly, polite and considerate folks in a tropical setting ever. You WANT to get around and mingle. Try that in Jamaica or Dominican (no thanks). Friday night Fish fry and jump up in Oistens is the place to be after a week of surfing, sightseeing and well deserved relaxation at Maya`s.

Cottage life in Barbados!

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time at the Maya's Bajan Villas w a bunch of the guys.

Place is bigger than expected, has all the amenities you could possibly need.

Walking distance to all the essential places like the market and the beach - quick drive to some of the public beaches, restaurants and even Bridgetown.

BEST PLACE EVER!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely relaxing stay at Maya’s. I came in direct contact with the owner, Edward. From there on it was an uphill experience. We were 3 generations that felt very privileged to stay on your property for a week while exploring the beautiful island of Barbados.

We arrived and were warmly greeted by Sonia on the terrace. The house is even better than it appeared online. Beautiful view, comfortable bedrooms, tasteful decorations and the house was clean, clean, clean. (That was my biggest fear)

Sonia and John were wonderful to work with. The kitchen was easy to work in, we cooked dinners there the nights we did not eat locally. We cooked breakfast each morning as the grocery store was within walking distance. Both villas were really lovely and had everything we needed, dishes, clothing iron,pots, pans, WIFI phone books extra beach towels...Everything was considered.

The beds were comfortable and the nights were very peaceful and quiet.

As a Texan, naturally my next concerns were mosquitoes and a lack of air conditioners. Neither of these were ever a problem. Literally every room in both units have fans and an abundance of windows which combined kept cool air circulating throughout the villa.

Even though the villas were gated, my boyfriend loved that there is a safe where you can store your valuables and that there are motion lights for extra security

Altogether it was an unforgettable vacation with amazing memories hopefully to be repeated in the near future. This is bar none the BEST place to stay in Christ Church. Again, the professionalism paired with warmth of Sonia, John and Edward were top notch.

Maya's Bajan Villas

  • 5 of 5

We just came back from a 13 day stay at Maya's Bajan Villa. Prior to the trip Edward was very helpful and would either call or email back with any questions I had for him. We used his recommendations for surfing and tours and we were thrilled with them. Upon arriving Jonathan went out of his way to take us to the grocery store and gave us suggestions on places to eat and what to do while there. The house is stunning, well laid out with everything you need and super clean. Beaches are close and the public transportation is a must and very convenient. We walked at all hours and felt very safe in the neighbourhood. I would recommend this rental for just about anyone! Can't wait to go back
