Far from a "Perfect 10"
Property is long overdue for refurbishment. There are holes in the walls of two bedrooms; one of the sinks in the master bathroom is out of order and has been for a long time; the window openers are corroded and in the case of the sitting room cannot be opened; and, of greater concern, the concrete columns supporting the house are cracked with the badly corroded steel reinforcements exposed.Although it says it accommodates 6 people, only 3 people at a time can sit and watch TV. The only dining table in the verandah has 4 seats so 6 people cannot eat meals together. The other furniture in the verandah are two armchairs very heavy to move and a very narrow hammock that you have to get into and out of very carefully. At night we were in the dark in the verandah as only one wall light worked. There were no dry towels available for us the first night as the dryer had broken down. There was no kettle. Luckily I live on the island and I brought my kettle from home, some folding chairs and beach and bath towels. When we received the towels there were not enough for 6 guests to have a beach and a bath towel. The mattresses on the king and queen beds were very hard and both my daughter and I suffered with aching backs during our stay. We also sleep on wood slats and firm mattresses at home so firmness was not the issue.
On a positive note the location was beautiful as expected and the verandah was nice and roomy. The sound of the ocean at night is also wonderful. I am not in the habit of writing negative reviews and I do not expect beach houses to be lavish but they should be comfortable; have adequate lighting and have adequate towels and furniture for the number of guests indicated. Unfortunately it was not everything the write up said it would be.
In all my 6 years of hosting guests i have never had one like Alison. Thankfully i have been blessed with good people who reciprocate my kind and gracious nature.
The beds have never received a complaint and are new beds.
The kettle was missing from the unit and i offered to replace it but Alison insisted she would bring one from home. We had a power outage that afternoon, not all towels were dry at check in as a result. Once again she acted like that wasnt a big deal .
I had previous guests who put a hole in the wall but i had not had an opportunity to have the work done . I pointed this out to Alison and once again she said it wasnt a big deal and now its in the review with a very different undertone . The hole was where curtains conceal it so it was not an eyesore or hinderance to their stay.
The real issue here was caused when Alison irresponsibly drove over my steps while backing out of my driveway . When she text messaged me that she had damaged my steps i was very kind to her and told her to not stress about it and to go ahead and enjoy a function she was attending .She told me to invoice her for the cost of the repairs. IN the end she agreed to have a repairman of hers come. When he came he only repaired 2 of the 5 steps she drove over . when i tried to contact her to ask about the remaining repairs i realised she had blocked me on whatsapp where we had been communicating . for no reason ...So crazy! When i contacted her on FB she was very rude , said my steps were old and so she wasnt repairing them.i reminded her that my old steps were intact when she arrived .She told me that she was reporting me to VRBO. I find it quite ironic that she damaged my property and didn't even feel bad about it or fully remedy it but then writes me a bad review about disrepair.
As for Alison i would not recommend her at all. i find her claims about my property very untrue and offensive .If she had these issues she should have spoken up about them to my face at the time and not write an inflated bad review after the fact! Its likely she did this because she didn't want to rectify the damages she so carelessly inflicted! . If you read my reviews you will read about the kind of person i CONSISTENTLY am and the way i treat my guests. She's just lucky it was me and not another type of person who wouldn't have been as understandng about her very reckless driving skills. Some of my Bajan friends have told me i should've reported this to the police.

Lisa was an absolute pleasure to work with both before and during our stay in Barbados . She was so friendly and helpful in coordinating cars, surfboards and local activity for us that our only task when we arrived was to relax. The house definitely gives off a rustic zen feel and the view of the ocean is the Perfect10!.
We loved the home, the location, and Lisa is an exceptional host who provided invaluable advice and wonderful hospitality. We will definitely stay there on our next trip to Barbados!
We spent an amazing week at the "Perfect 10". The house was awesome and Lisa was a wonderful host. She is very kindhearted, down to earth , and attentive to detail. Upon arrival we found a "turtle" in the refrigerator -made with a watermelon. There were also several snacks left for us to enjoy. Later in the week Lisa made us cookies and banana bread. She went above and beyond to make us feel welcome! The property is just like the photos/description - very clean, uniquely decorated, well equipped, and spacious. The ocean views from the deck, as well as the living room/ kitchen are spectacular. It is a very peaceful spot- we enjoyed relaxing in the hammock, listening to the sound of the waves and the tree frogs. I would have no hesitation in recommending this property to anyone traveling to the area. We had a fantastic stay and we will definitely be coming back!!
We spent a week at Lisa's perfect house on the beach and without a doubt this was the best vacation we ever had- and it's mostly thanks to this amazing house and Lisa's hospitality! The house is fantastic- the open space with the kitchen, living room and huge balcony looking straight at the ocean, the constant ocean sounds and the rest of the house were everything we could have wished for. We were a couple with a 19 months old baby and Lisa went above and beyond to accommodate the house to his needs. She set up a crib and a high chair, brought over a kids pool so he can bathe on the balcony and even bought him treats for our late arrival. If something broke or was missing she would fix that right away and was always there to answer our questions. Lisa, we can't thank you enough for this past week - we will never forget it!!
Our pleasent stay at the perfect 10
The four of us really enjoyed our stay at the "perfect 10" we had a nice surprise when we arrived. Fresh baked banana bread, an assortment of chips and a bottle of sparkling wine which I must say went down easy. Lisa was such a kind person, she went out of her way to pick up a couple of things for us and brought us some delicious homemade cookies. We loved hanging around on the deck during the night listening to music, playing cards and bones, having a few or several drinks while watching the sun go down. The sound of the tree frogs were also nice to hear. In the morning it was great to have our coffe, watch the sunrise and looking toward the ocean, while laying in the comfy hammock feeling the breeze. We made many wonderful memories at the perfect 10 and in our opinion we give the "perfect 10" a 10/10. Thank you Lisa for making us feel welcomed and at home.
