AMAZING PLACE TO STAY!!!!!!!!!! 5+++++++++++++++++++

1) We rented Sunrise Villa from January 12 to January 25, 2015. There were 4 of us (2 couples). The weather was great! The temperature was around 26-28C in the afternoon and 24-25C at night. We also liked that there were no mosquitoes and midges at all, neither in the afternoon nor at night.


2) When I first saw Sunrise Villa on the picture while doing my research, I liked it right away. And I was right, Sunrise Villa is a PARADISE! It is very clean, cozy, modern and decorated with taste and style. The inside and outside furniture is very comfortable, and there was definitely enough space and place for 4 adults to relax and enjoy the time. The kitchen is quite big and all kitchen necessities are there if you want to cook yourself. We cooked every day throughout our stay and enjoyed our delicious dishes while sitting outside, even during the rain; as there was a big canopy outside which protected us from rainy evenings. We also cooked our food a few times on BBQ. We usually bought the groceries either in supermarkets or small farms, which were on our way when we traveled.

3) The swimming pool is quite deep and big for swimming. The water in the pool is clean!

4) We rented a car on the second day of our stay. We asked Jen (manager) about the car rent and she accommodated everything for us. Thanks Jen!!! =) We felt much better and more independent with the car as we were able to travel around the island and see various interesting places. And of course it was much easier to do the grocery shopping with a car. However, keep in mind that the roads are far from perfect and there is a right-hand traffic in Barbados, and therefore most cars have a steering wheel on the right hand side.

5) The Managers – Jen and John who live just across Sunrise Villa are AWESOME PEOPLE! They are very hospitable, attentive and caring about their clients/ guests, and are always there for you when you need something or have a question. Thank you Jen and John for all your care and attention during our stay!

6) Local people are also very pleasant. They are very attractive, communicable and have a great sense of humor! =)

7) When we rented a car, we started traveling around the island during our second week of stay. We visited many interesting places, including various beaches, and made a lot of beautiful pictures! One of our best destinations was the botanical garden named “Andromeda” (highly recommended). Another great place is the Bottom Bay beach; it’s very private and quite, just a 5 min. walk from Sunrise Villa.

8) We had a very active vacation and therefore 2 weeks went by as 2 days. We ENJOYED every minute of our stay, and we highly recommend Sunrise Villa!!!

9) There were 4 of us and we shared all expenses. As a result, we saved a lot of money and truly enjoyed our 2 weeks getaway at Sunrise Villa!

10) Overall, we truly enjoyed our vacation!!! Sunrise Villa is definitely a wonderful place to stay!!! We would like to THANK the owners of Sunrise Villa – Des and Jill, as well as the management team – Jen and John! You guys made our vacation smooth and enjoyable!!! Your attention, positive attitude and your care are greatly appreciated!!! We will definitely come back or send our kids to Sunrise Villa!!!

“Wonderful privacy”
Reviewed 21 February 2015 for a stay in January 2015

This is our second time staying in the Bottom Bay (Atlantic Shores) area - and we far prefer this "Sunrise Villa". The landscaping and large pool make it idyllic. Plus being at the end of the street is a bonus for quietness. The property is well maintained, and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

“A must in Barbados. Immaculate villa and very friendly locals.”
Reviewed 11 December 2014 for a stay in November 2014

I stayed at this villa with my partner and 9 month old son for 3 weeks from mid November until early December. We've been to Barbados several times before but this is the first time we've self catered. We have an absolutely fantastic time.

The description of the villa doesn't do it justice. It's modern and comfortable and incredibly well decorated. The outside area offers both sun and shade throughout the day and there are plenty of sun beds and seating. The pool is a perfect temperature. The bedroom's in the villa are spacious and offer great wardrobe space. The queen size beds are very comfortable. There is a ceiling fan and aircon. We found that if you leave the windows open (there are mosquito nets at all windows) that the fan coupled with the evening breeze is more than sufficient to cool the room. The kitchen has every utensil you could possibly want, as well as a large selection of cutlery and crockery. We did not sit in the living area once, even when it rained as the outside has a large canopy to protect from rain.

We decided to try not renting a car. Having read previous posts, we weren't sure we'd made the right decision. Yes, the villa is taxi ride to the supermarket and St Lawrence Gap but what we spent on taxis is well short of the price we were quoted for the most basic car. The local supermarket is a £20 round trip and The Gap is a £35 round trip. There is bar called MarcoPolo a short taxi ride from the villa, again this is a £20 round trip but well worth the visit. We had some fab nights here. The owners Sally and mark are lovely and the rum punch is delicious. Great food too! Other than that, we hadn't intended on visiting anywhere else as wed seen what we wanted to see on previous trips.

Bottom Bay Beach is about a five minute walk from the villa. It's very picturesque and quiet but the sea is very rough and definitely not for swimming. There is a small supermarket about a 10 minute walk from the villa and a shop next to it which sells fresh fruit and vegetables.

The icing on the cake were john and Jan- the villa manages. Fantastic people. We shared a few evenings with them and thoroughly enjoyed their company. They are hospitable, interesting and up for a great laugh and a few drinks. John and Jan have great local knowledge, having lived in Barbados for over ten years (john is Bajan) and are more than happy to share it with visitors.

We cannot wait to return.

“Unwind and Relax”
Reviewed 17 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

The Sunrise Villa was just how it looks in the advert, in fact when you are actually there it's better. Des and Jill made the booking very easy and provided us with great information on what to do and how to get about. l attempted to manage without a car, but after a while I gave in and hired a car, which enabled us to see more of the island and have more flexibility.

The villa is just perfect, the rooms are of good size, both bedrooms are double with plenty of wardrobe space, ceiling fans and air conditioning, we managed with the ceiling fans, using the air condition when getting ready to go out in an attempt to keep us cool.

TV, music center and DVD player available, although the TV could only be used for the DVD's, was unable to get any channels, but in saying that I don't go away to watch TV, but to catch up on some news would have been handy.

The outdoor area was just brilliant, the pool, dinning table, undercover eating, allows for spending most of your time outside in the beautiful Bajan sunshine. We had breakfast outside every morning and either lunch or if we had been out for an even meal, we would return back in the pool and a nightcap before heading for bed. It was just perfect, the silence is something to treasure and something I look for in a holiday, as I want to relax and enjoy the weather.

The bus service is very handy and we used it for the first four days, but often the times can be a little unreliable and we found you could be standing on the side of the road for lengthy periods if you are unlucky, a car is a must.

The beaches close by are nice and secluded, but now beds and umbrellas, no bar etc, so these weren't for us, we like a bit of comfort at the beach and somewhere to get a drink ans something to eat. If you go west towards St Lawrence Gap etc there are plenty of beautiful beaches that have these facilities, we stayed at Rockly beach, Crane beach and drove up to to Mullins Bay which was just gorgeous.

Plenty of bars and restaurants around these areas especially St Lawrence Gap, we had some lovely meals and the welcome from the Bajan people is superb, they can't do enough to ensure you have a good time.

We spent a number of nights at Marco Polo's just on from the Crane resort, an English couple Marc and Sally, great atmosphere, good food, cold beer and a great welcome. We also spent some time at Sharkeys in St Lawrence Gap and eat at Crave, which we recommend.

All in all we had a great time, very relaxing because our villa was located in a quite area away from the hustle and bustle so we had the best of both worlds, would definitely go back again, try this place out and you won't be disappointed.

“Sunrise Villa”
Reviewed 7 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

person found this review helpful

We stayed at Sunrise Villa in the middle of August. The villa is beautiful and equipped and furnished to a very high standard. The private garden is wonderfully landscaped with a good size refreshing pool. There is ample outside dining\seating facilities with comfy sun lounges and chairs. We loved the villa although did find the location a little bit isolated. I would definitely recommend a car as there are very few eating places within walking distance. There is a decent supermarket about 10 minutes drive away at Emerald City and also a couple of banks. Bottom Bay itself is a few minutes away from the villa and is very scenic. We had some lovely walks along the cliffs and watched the sea crashing into the coastline.........breath-taking. . Would definitely recommend staying here if you fancy some peace and quiet and are prepared to travel a little; the larger tourist resorts are easily accessible by car if you fancy a change of scenery or somewhere different to eat.
