Golden Acre is perfectly located in the heart of St James, two minutes to a beautiful beach, amazing beach bars and a restaurant with stunning views.
The pool is a great size, and the accommodations are immaculate.
Listing is totally accurate. Property was very well maintained and super clean! All questions answered quickly and professionally - David is great and very easy to deal with. We travelled with our 8-year old daughter. Property is quiet, relaxing. People around are super friendly, always felt safe. The walk to the beach was no problem - watch for cars on the main road if you have little ones. The beach was lovely and very safe for swimming and snorkelling. We also loved hanging out by the pool - most of the time we were the only ones there. My daughter loves all things nature....every late afternoon we would sit by the pool and watch the monkeys in the trees, then as night fell the bats came out high overhead, and as it got dark there were tons of fireflies sparkling all around. Loved. it.
We spent six days in this nice villa, this was the first stop of our journey in Barbados. The villa is close to the beach, short walking distance, very safe surroundings where local people greet strangers on the street, really nice and special.
The house was clean and with everything for a pleasant stay.
The owner was very careful and helpful, lot of good recommandations very helpful for us, being first time in Barbados.
Thanks, David, we enjoyed the stay and we love Barbados!
I stayed in the villa in November with a BF and friends and we enjoyed it a lot.
This is a spacious modern 2-storey house with all the amenities only 5 minutes walk from one of the best and quiet beaches exactly at one of the snorkelling places (boats even bring tourists here to snorkel and swim with turtles). The house is mint-new with nice furniture, AC in every room and even a full entertainment system in the living room.
The villa is part of a new gated development away from the road or any other nuisance and there was a nice swimming pool surrounded by the jungle. We had great morning book reading there with all the birds chirping and also stargazing sessions at night. Once we even saw monkeys in the surrounding trees so it really felt like a tiny secluded paradise!
The villa also had a gas BBQ which came in handy for our home cooking (I consider having a home with kitchen vs hotel is a great benefit in Barbados if you’re not a great fan of carribean or junk food yet want to save some cash).
The hosts were very helpful and actually shared some local insider tips on food, car rental and things to do which were really good value and saved us some time on trial and error.
I’ll totally be back to this villa so I can highly recommend trying it out.
The property is amazing. This was a first time visit to Barbados and it had all the amenities that we were looking for. Our favorite activity was watching the sunset at Ju Ju's which is a few minutes away and when it got dark going to the pool just a few steps away from the the villa.
We have been around the island to explore other beach areas. They were either too rocky, waves were too choppy, and they didnt have the amazing sunset.
The villa itself is quite big with 3 bedrooms and very clean. Played some Xbox and cooked on the barbeque a few nights which was fantastic. Huge kitchen and dining area. The owners gave us information ahead of time and were always available when we had questions.
If you are visiting Barbados this is a great villa and we are coming back next year.
