We had a wonderful Christmas in Barbados last year, And we could not fault this villa it was perfect for us and our four teenage children. It is in a great location that is very peaceful but yet only minutes from Holetown and the Beach at the Colony Club,One of the highlights was having breakfast on the terrace one morning and watching the monkeys walk through the bottom of the garden. It has everything we needed the management team were very helpful we have told all our friends about it and we would not hesitate to stay at Beija Flor again.
We very much enjoyed our stay at Beija Flor.
This three bedroomed villa is situated just minutes from Holetown with the nearest beach at Heron Bay (parking is available at the beach). It is situated on a small development.
It was particularly peaceful when we were staying as there were no neighbours either side.
The house does back onto a small road which skirts one side of the development and leads up to the Royal Westmoreland but there was not much road noise and, to be honest, we felt more secure than if we had faced countryside. The road is screened with beautiful trees and the view from the house is an oasis of palms and flowers.
Downstairs there is a lovely bedroom, walk-in wardrobe, en-suite bathroom plus additional loo and then an open plan kitchen, living and dining area with seating for 6. The kitchen has everything you need including a washing machine and tumble dryer,
Upstairs two further bedrooms again with wonderfully spacious closets and both with bathrooms.
Ceiling fans and air con throughout meant the house was cool.
Outside a beautiful garden and pool. We didn't swim in the pool as we were busy visiting different beaches in the afternoons but it was so lovely to sit by.
Shutters downstairs for extra security. We have lived in the West Indies so are always mindful of that as we are in the UK.
Excellent wifi which is always important for us and a great cable TV package. We didn't watch much TV but had we travelled with my son we would have done so.
We found the location very convenient, morning coffee in Speightstown was just 10 minutes away, Bridgetown about 20 minutes and the Dover beach area / airport around 30 minutes. The large Massy supermarket at Holetown, where you can find literally everything, is just 5 minutes away.
Lots of restaurants a short drive away or some offer taxi services.
The house is comfortable and homely. It is well managed by Juliet, the property manager, who was always on hand. We would certainly return.

The property was beautiful, well-equipped and very clean. The garden and pool got a lot of use during the week and was well-maintained. There is a little road noise at times but nothing major. Juliet, the property manager, was very helpful, she was waiting to assist as we arrived.
During the day it is a 10 to 15 minute walk into Holetown but after dark it would be advisable to use taxis as the road is not well lit - these are cheap and easily available.
We would definitely stay again.
Villa had everything we needed for an enjoyable stay. Within walking distance to the beach and short drive into town. The pool was a good size and the bbq and alfresco dining area enhanced the outdoor enjoyment.
