Thank you so much once again David and Claire for allowing us to stay in your beautiful villa. This was our second visit to Sea shells and we had another wonderful time, the villa was perfect and it was so nice to see David and Althea again who looked after us very well.
We managed to visit St Nicholas abbey this time which was great day out very interesting definitely worth a visit and we managed to explore more of the island but it was lovely to return back home to the fabulous setting of Sea Shells which we hope to return to very soon.

We have stayed here twice so far and we will certainly stay again. The property is wonderful, the open plan ground floor flows into the outside area and the beach. The bedrooms are wonderful, especially the huge master suite, with wonderful views of the beach and sea. The location is perfect for us, walk to superb top end restaurants and local eating places, the fish market, the local bus to hop into Holetown or Speightstown for other eating delights. Some may find the road off putting, but for us it is a plus. We simply love the place and wouldn't consider staying anywhere else on this great island.
Seashells is a lovely villa in a stunning location. Situated on Paynes Bay on a beautiful beach we loved being able to walk right along the beach to Sandy Lane each morning. There is a reef directly in front of the villa so you just need to walk approx 200 m to the right if you want to swim.
Two of the island's top restaurants - The Cliff and Daphnes are within walking distance. We enjoyed going to Daphnes for happy hour at 5pm for a great rum punch to watch the sun set.
Other restaurants we would recommend are Tides, Lone Star and The Fish Pot. Jumas at Speightstown is also worth a visit and they provide complimentary transport
The villa is very clean and well appointed. Altea the maid is efficient and David the security guard is very good.
The villa is situated on a main road and next to a fish market. There is noise but it did not bother us. There is also a lot of natural noise - the waves crashing against the beach and the local birds. All fabulous!
We had a lovely week at Seashells and we hope to return.
This has been our third stay in Seashells, and it looked even more beautiful than the last time - if that is possible. Some lovely decor touches inside and out, Claire and David have such exquisite taste as well as being wonderful people to deal with. It's like our second home away from home. We love the location because it is easy to get to all the places we want to go without much thought. We absolutely love that it is right on the beach and we walk every morning from Payne's Bay as far as Sandy Lane beach when it is possible depending on the tides. The restaurants here in Barbados are world class. To name a few - Tides, The Cliff, Scarlett, Daphne's, The Lone Star, Cin CIn. All fabulous. We went to El Tiempo for the first time for lunch - only authentic Italian food on the Island - it was Pavarotti's favourite place to be when he visited here many years ago. I think I would like to go there at night because I think it would be more romantic at night. The food was excellent. We also went to another new place up in Speightstown to a place called Jumas for breakfast - it was was very homey and breakfast was served on the deck overlooking the beach which was gorgeous of course with the turquoise water glistening alongside the white sandy beach. The food was delicious. I would recommend it - so give it a try. There is also a bakery across the street with delicious coconut turnovers and many different breads and tarts - very reasonably priced. We did a lot of our own cooking at the villa as it is very well equipped with gadgets, dishes small appliances and always something in the cupboard such as condiments - spices - vinegars etc. We usually end up leaving stuff so the next person can avail of it. There is also a lovely barbecue outside - and a plunge pool if you get overheated. The bed is very comfortable with lovely cotton sheets, lots of lovely towels in the bathroom, and beach towels also. The entrance and gardens on the property are beautiful and there are a couple of coconut trees by the beach gate which are a part of our natural Barbados orchestra here (waves crashing, trees rustling and insects singing) so beautiful. Althea is our House Keeper and she is perfect, she comes in the morning - does a very thorough cleaning and always has a smile - what more could you ask for. We feel so lucky to have found such a perfect villa in a heavenly spot called Barbados. Thank you again Claire and David for making our holiday such a great one.
We have just finished a two week stay at this wonderful villa with our toddler daughter. We had an amazingly relaxing time. The beach is at the bottom of the villas terrace through a locked gate. it is lovely and it's easy to get into the sea. We enjoyed our daily strolls and dips into the beautiful warm sea.
The villa itself is very well kept and spacious, looked after by a very friendly and diligent housekeeper, Althea. It states in the villa advert that she is full time, however we found she was at the villa for approx 2.5hrs a day. This suited us as we preferred having the villa to ourselves. Althea will Cook if you ask her but this is not included in the Price.
The outside areas at the villa are spacious, welcoming and relaxing. A gardener comes weekdays to clean the patio and there's also a small plunge pool. We found the pool a little cold but our daughter loved it!
It should be noted the villa is located next to a fish market and shower block so there's lots of activity. It's also located just off the main west Coast road round the island. Neither of these things bothered us but it can get noisy. We generally found the beach outside the villa very quiet.
Food wise you are spoilt for choice. We enjoyed meals at Tides, Scarlet's, The Cliff and Jumas in Speightsown. Would highly recommend all.
I would definitely love to return to Seashells. Such a relaxing, beautiful place.
Thank You so much Claire and David for letting stay in your beautiful villa.
This was our 1st visit to Barbados and we were delighted with Seashells. Althea was there to greet us with a meal and wine after a long flight and we woke up to the most amazing view.
The villa is in a fantastic position you can walk along the beach to daphne's, "great food and happy hour" sandy lane and lots of lovely beach bars.
You can catch the yellow bus "great experience" or the blue bus just outside to get around the island.
The villa was in very easy reach of all the fabulous restaurants. The Cliff, Daphne's, Tides,Lone star, and many more.
It was also fantastic for water sports if you wanted them which was avaliable on the beach outside the villa, but not busy like further down the beach on Paynes bay giving you the best of both worlds.
We also felt very safe here with David who was lovely and looked after the villa.
The Villa was beautifully kept very spacious and offered everything you could possibly need it really was such a lucky find. If we had to say one minor thing is that the villa is near to the road so there is a bit of road noise but this did not bother us at all and the amazing position and feel of the villa outweighed any bit of road noise.
To sum up we have had the most wonderful time at Sea Shells villa, we loved it and we will certainly be returning hopefully very soon.
Thank you so much
All The Calderhead Family
