Excellent pool area, well maintained, private & close to the beach (!) Owner looked well after us and gave valuable advise. Shopping for food was easy at Massy store nearby also Sandy Crest Medical Center was open 24/7 for service ( 10 min walk ) Al in all highly recommended
An absolute joy and privilege to visit Barbados. The accomadion was absolutely superb. Went for a week with a plan of activities however spend most of the time at home. The accomadtion was beautiful, well kept, clean and tidy and amazing garden. The decor, the pool, the lounge, the breakfast area and the rooms were absolutely superb.
I would strongly recommend this accommodation, will be coming back just to stay there again.
Just returned from a two week holiday at Plumbago Villa. We rented the whole property (villa and both studios) for a family holiday. Absolutely loved it - a real homely feel which we prefer to the often sterile atmosphere in a hotel. Diane was the ideal host, available and helpful when needed, she gave us a lift to the supermarket on day 1 so we could get some essentials before they closed. She also gave us lots of helpful information to make our stay more enjoyable. Janice who cleaned was friendly and efficient, happy to accommodate our needs.
The best bit for me though was the location - and easy stroll to the centre of Holetown with all the amenities there and a really local beach, untainted by the rows of sun beds often present near the larger hotels. A couple of decent beach bar / restaurants completed the picture for a beach loving family. Yes, there are plenty of beach vendors trying to sell you this, that or the next thing but a polite 'no' is always accepted, albeit with some friendly banter.
There are also a wider range of restaurants within easy reach of the villa, we did some fine dining - The Cliff, Tides and Lonestar are all within a few minutes taxi ride (or bus). We also hired a car for a few days and did a few great houses, the earthworks pottery factory, Batak and gallery, a tour of the East Coast and of course Bridgetown and a catamaran trip.
Having been to Barbados twice before and stayed in hotels on the south coast on both occasions, I definitely prefer the west coast and the freedom of a villa / apartment with pool. Plumbago is truly one of the best for the price. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend and will probably return ourselves.
Diane made us extremely welcome at Plumbago Villa. Set in a quiet residential location the villa , garden and pool are well maintained and delightful. Holetown had everything we needed within a comfortable walk, a lovely quiet beach, restaurants, bars and good supermarket, so it made for a relaxing, stress free week. We hired a car for a couple of days (then dropped off at the airport) so we could see some of the island. Diane reckons she's in the best location and to be honest, she is absolutely right. We thoroughly enjoyed our week in Barbados and I suspect we will be returning to see Diane before too long.
This was our second stay at Plumbago, and we hope there will be many more. The first, two years ago, we were in the lower apartment, this time in the villa and also the upper apartment for friends to stay in. A warm personal welcome awaits from Diane, who now lives in the lower apartment. Both the villa and apartments are excellently appointed and kept spotlessly clean. Bed linen and towels changed by the wonderful Janice whenever you wish. The garden and pool beautifully maintained, quiet and private. Yet the beach, Holetown village with everything you need, a choice of top quality restaurants, public transport and health centre are all within a few minutes walk. This really is a prime location and a delightful rental. Highly recommended.
This is the second time we have stayed at Plumbago, the first time was 13 years ago when we brought the children with us, so we stayed in the villa. This time we came on our own and rented the bottom apartment.. On first inspection the apartment was clean and tidy and had everything you would need for a lovely holiday. There was plenty of wardrobe space to hang all our clothes which was in the bathroom/ dressing room. The apartment complex is exactly as described by Diane with a lovely pool for cooling off when the sun gets too hot. The gardens have been well maintained and stocked with all sorts of exotic plants which attract all sorts of birds, including hummingbirds. The property is just a short two minute walk to the supermarket shopping complex and 5-10 minute walk to Limegrove shopping centre with it's designer shops, bars and cafes. The beach is only across the road from the supermarket and the Beach House also. We enjoyed the use of The Beach House, it is a haven away from pedlars on the beaches and has a bar, restaurant, showers, a nice pool and safes. Plumbago villas and apartments are cleaned regularly, even when not in use. The upper apartment is more modern, with just about everything looking new, whilst the lower apartment is slightly older looking, but still lovely. Diane has years of experience in the hotel trade and has set herself high standards which shine through within the complex. Please be aware though that this property is within a residential area and there are other people living within the area that have dogs, do gardening, building work etc. Generally the area is quiet, just far enough away from the main road not to hear the traffic noise. We would not hesitate to recommend Plumbago to our friends and family and we wish we were still there!
