“Excellent Choice”
Reviewed 31 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

My wife and I spent a week at Green Gates with our 15 month old baby. This was the best possible choice for us both in terms of comfort and location. Green Gates is for a maximum of 6 people but probably ideal for 4. The bed in the main room is extremely comfortable and you enjoy the air conditioning in two bedrooms. It has a washing machine which is very useful when you travel with a baby. They also provided beach chairs, beach umbrella, a crib and a high chair for the baby. The house is located in a quiet neighborhood away from the main roads. It has everything you need for your stay and is literally 3 minutes walk from small Maxwell Beach. Personally, we preferred Welches Beach which is only 2 minutes drive from the house near the Oistin Fish Market. Sharon, the owner, is very nice and helpful and we remained in contact during our whole stay. Price, location, comfort. You have it all with the Green Gates. We will definitely come back!

“Clean, comfortable house with great location”
Reviewed 24 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

The Green Gates House is a wonderful place to stay in Maxwell for a group of 4-6. With 3 full bedrooms (1 room w/ calif. king, 1 w/ 2 twin beds together, & 1 w/ a bunk bed) the place is super comfortable for a group to use as home base while venturing to the beach or around the island. Located near the Barbados beach club, Bougainvillea resort, and Sandals Bahamas, Green Gates is within 10 minutes of the beach at Maxwell or a smaller beach just across the street. There is a bus stop down the block and a convenience store near by. Both Oistins and Dover beach are within a 20 minute walk along the main road. Getting to Bridgetown and the western parts of the island are a bit of a hassle given traffic and the bus system - so definitely worth keeping in mind as you plan your trip - probably easier if you have a rental car which we did not. The house itself is in a quiet, safe neighborhood near some hotels and rental condos. The interior is well equipped with a full kitchen, clean bathroom, and very comfortable beds. The two large bedrooms have A/C while the smaller one has a fan that keeps the place pretty cool. The kitchen is perfect to cook in if you want to eat in as we did for most of our meals. Sharon also provided everything we needed including beach towels and some snacks to welcome us. Sharon, the host, is wonderfully welcoming and made sure everything was set for our trip. She checked in with us regularly and made sure we were comfortable and offered to set up any excursions we were interested in. Overall, I'd definitely stay at Green Gates next time I'm on the island. Sharon did a wonderful job hosting us and you literally can't beat the price. Definitely recommend to anyone interested in a relaxing beach vacation with a wonderful home to make your own.

“Great place to stay for any family”
Reviewed 17 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We are a young family with two small children that were looking for a family friendly visit on our first trip to the island. Staying at green gates offered everything we were looking for. We walked to Welches beach most mornings, which is a stones throw from the grocery store. The beach was beautiful and usually quite empty. In the afternoons we walked to the beach right across the street from the property. The bus route to fun day trips is just at the top of the street. The property itself was beautiful and made our trip worry free. On top of that Sharon was right there to answer any questions and help out to make our trip memorable. 10/10.

“Highly Recommended”
Reviewed 8 March 2016 for a stay in January 2016

We just returned home after spending 2 full months at Green Gates. We absolutely could not have asked for a better vacation home. Sharon and Peter did such a great job making sure all of our needs were met. Sharon is so professional but also truly concerned about our comfort. The house has everything you need to make you feel like you are at home away from home. Beds are very comfortable, kitchen has everything needed to make a big meal if choose and the yard has comfortable chairs and table along with a bbq. We honestly could not find one thing to complain about. We will be definitely be looking to stay at Green Gates again and highly recommend this wonderful guest house to anyone considering a holiday in beautiful Barbados. Thank you Sharon and Peter for everything. Can't wait to come back!!! Joanne & Andy Simmons

“Just returned from a second stay”

I've just returned from a second stay at Green Gates (1st stay was August 2014) & once again had an amazing holiday.
I would love to rate the house 5 out of 5 but do feel it would benefit massively if AC was put in the bedrooms, other than this the house has everything you need to make it your home for the length of your stay. Nothing is too much trouble for the owners & much to our delight we discovered one of the neighbours makes the most amazing food to sell at weekends, believe me when i say her pizza's are delicious!
Situated in a perfect location with a beautiful, well kept garden Green Gates is just like a home from home & i'm looking forward to many more stays.

Thank you Louise for choosing to return to Barbados and Green Gates, we truly appreciate it. We always listen to our guests and so you would be pleased to know that we have just completed installing air conditioning to the bedrooms at both Green Gates the house as well as Little Gates the One Bedroom Apartment. Yes we just got cooler! Thank you for being amazing guests and we too recommend Elaine's delish cuisine which is delivered right to the house for your convenience. It keeps getting better and better:-
BEACH - check

COOL BEDROOMS - check

See you soon.
