BEST WEEK OF OUR LIVES
I stayed at Monkeytime with four of my best friends from university for a week in March, and we could not have asked for a better time. The apartment is in a fantastic location, a great spot from which to discover the real Barbados and meet super local people, whilst also enjoying the beauty of the West Coast. The view from the roof terrace is unreal, and we ate breakfast and dinner up there everyday. Turn all the house lights out at night a take a look at the stars, too - it'll be like nothing you've ever seen.
We enjoyed swimming in the pool whilst simultaneously gazing at the sea, and spotting humming birds feeding on the beautiful flowers surrounding us. We fed King Birds from the apartment balcony, and saw the Barbados Green Monkeys from the apartment on three separate occasions! So special to see so many animals in the wild. The apartment is really well equipped, from the sun beds, to beach inflatables, to games, DVDs, and ample crockery/fridge space - there are even Martini glasses! And being able to walk down to Fitts Village beach in a mere 5 minutes is an absolute dream. As is being able to just nip to the local supermarket on foot in the same amount of time when you run out of rum.
Big recommendations from us (all of which are walkable or less than 15 mins in a car/bus ride) are: swimming at Heron Bay, a Discover BIM Island Tours boat trip to see turtles and a shipwreck (talk to the friendly groundskeeper Andy about this!), happy hour at Il Tempio, the Cliff, the quiz at Carizma on the Hill, and Paynes Bay fish market. And to the south, the Mount Gay distillery, Oistins fish fry, and Crane Beach (a little further afield!)
We lived like Kings, and we could not be more grateful!! THANK YOU!
Lovely but some work needs to be done
Was greeted by the owners’ lovely housekeeper who was quite charming. But the place needs some maintenance. The master bedroom Ac wasn’t working. Although they got someone in the next day to check it, he want able to do a full service so the Ac just cooled but wasn’t really cold. The douvets on the beds were stained so presentation could have been nicer. But the owners seemed lovely and we were quite entertained by the monkeys. There is a beautiful view of the sea from the rooftop patio. No chairs by the pool so we would have to walk with chairs from the townhouse up the stairs. The bannister was broken around the pool so that could be dangerous. But all in all we had a lovely vacation. Thanks
This was a delightful place to stay. Stunning views, clean, comfortable, excellent value, top marks!
This was a wonderful holiday. The villa is just a short walk from the beach, transport and amenities. Views were stunning especially from the roof terrace. Communication with owner and housekeeper smooth and helpful. Immaculately clean. Everything had been thought through meticulously. Surroundings were very peaceful away from the busy coast road. The substantial pool was very refreshing and the views were to die for. We had it to ourselves most of the time. Shady gazebo very relaxing. Wifi and TV helped us keep in touch with rest of world. We loved watching the wildlife including monkeys, geckos, bats, King birds, humming birds, fireflies etc. Watching the majestic ships coming and going was a privilege. This is a real gem and we shall return soon!
This is a wonderful place to stay. The place was nice and clean with 2 bedrooms and a big livingroom and a kitchen. There was 2 bathrooms with showers. The house had a wifi and washing machine.
There was a very nice pool that we visited 2-3 times a day. Supermarket was down the hill 0,5 mile away next to highway from where you can go practically everywhere in the island. Accross the road from the supermarket is a Caribbean sea where you can swim or rent a jetskis or go fishing.
In the house there was a nice kitchen which had all the necessary items. There was a nice terrace on the 3rd floor with nice sea view. If you want to have nice and quiet vacation i totally recommend this place. For bonus you can see every day in the mornings monkeys that wander by.
Very many thanks for your positive review - we're glad you enjoyed staying at "Monkeytime".
Wonderful stay in a lovely home. Everything was as described with lots of helpful information regarding the area. The property was spotlessly clean , very well equipped and maintained . We thoroughly enjoyed the monkeys who visited quite often. We rented a car for the 2wks. & explored the whole island including the east coast which provided a dramatic & exhilarating contrast to the west side.
Loved Barbados because there was so much to see & do - even went to a polo game ( first time) - the commentary alone was worth the price of admission! The National Trust open house tours were fascinating with a tour, tea & talk.
Would highly recommend Monkeytime but think a car is a plus.
Best beach - Enterprise ( Miami) Good brunch - Sunday. Sunbury Plantation.
Best lunch with a view - Round House ( East Coast ) & Earthworks Pottery.
Thank you Graham & Dianne for all your attention to detail & for providing such a comfortable home.

Many thanks for your lovely review - glad you had such a good time. And thanks, too, for your useful tips. All the best for 2015! Graham and Dianne
Die Unterkunft liegt in Fitts Village, einem kleinen Ort an der Westküste. Es ist eine sehr zentrale Lage, um die größeren Orte schnell zu erreichen und die Insel zu erkunden.
Monkey Time ist ein komfortables Ferienhaus mit sehr guter Ausstattung, alles sauber und gepflegt. Man fühlt sich sofort wie zu Hause.
In der Küche fehlt es an nichts, so dass auch Selbstversorger dort sehr gut aufgehoben sind. Ein Supermarkt ist ganz in der Nähe.
Die Dachterrasse bietet einen wunderschönen Meerblick. Die meiste Zeit haben wir uns jedoch auf dem Balkon auf der mittleren Etage aufgehalten, ebenfalls mit Meerblick. Von dort konnte man auch die Affen beobachten!
Die Anlage (7 Einheiten) war zu unserer Reisezeit Ende Mai fast leer, so dass wir den schönen Pool immer für uns alleine hatten. Auch der Strand ist zu Fuß gut erreichbar. Sollte man jedoch Lust auf andere Strände haben, fahren die Busse im Minutentakt. Eine Busfahrt ist übrigens ein besonderes Erlebnis auf Barbados, das man auf keinen Fall verpassen sollte. Ein Auto ist nicht notwendig.
Vor Anreise erhält man ein umfangreiches Welcome Pack per Mail und Fragen werden jederzeit sofort durch Graham beantwortet. Alles ist sehr gut organisiert, auch Schlüsselübergabe und Taxi-Transfer waren perfekt.
An der Pinwand in der Küche findet man hilfreiche Informationen über Öffnungszeiten der Supermärkte sowie Telefonnummern von Restaurants und Taxiunternehmen.
Das Einzige, was uns gefehlt hat, war ein Internetzugang.
Wir hatten eine wunderbare Zeit in Monkey Time und können diese Unterkunft unbedingt empfehlen! Barbados hat soviel zu bieten. Wir kommen bestimmt wieder!
