And as we are situated just off the main coast road, its very quiet ....no road noise!The villa is within easy walking distance of 2 glorious beaches and at least 5 restaurants/beach bars (including the fabulous SeaShed), plus a 24 hour convenience store. We are ideally located on the calm 'platinum' west coast, between the authentic Speightstown ( (5 mins) full of Caribbean charm and the vibrant Holetown with many bars and restaurants, plus Lime Grove for designer shopping and eateries just 10 mins by car.

Set in a third of an acre with a distinctive palm tree perimeter, the carefully tended, tropical gardens surround an attractive, well maintained 20 foot circular swimming pool, with sun loungers, tables and chairs. There are parasols and natural shade provided by the palms, when you need to take a break from the rays and there's an outside shower by the pool for freshening up. This east-facing oasis enjoys all day sun as well as gentle breezes. Keep an eye out for the humming bird who is a regular afternoon visitor and maybe even a monkey or two will pass by......

The grounds are fully enclosed and the whole exterior of the property is frequently fumigated to keep mosquitoes at bay. There are electric mosquito zappers on the rear terrace, plus netting on all windows.

Guaranteed Wonderful Stay!
We’ve been coming to Barbados for years and have rented quite a few places. We know what makes for an enjoyable stay and this villa is the best of the best! We have stayed here a number of times and it’s like home to us. Besides being pristine, very-well appointed, spacious and a very short walk through a lovely, clean neighourhood to the best beach in Barbados, what we really like about this villa is: It’s QUIET!. No roosters, goats, chickens or dogs nearby. No traffic because it’s not a throughway. No kites flying. No noisy neighbours. Very few tree frogs singing in their loud voices at night. The breeze! We are comfortable all day and sometimes don’t even turn on the AC at night. We love hearing the gentle wind in the trees. It’s really soothing. The shade! The covered terrace facing the pool is huge and provides protection against sun and rain. Sun lovers can lounge around that pool and get their tan but the shade is welcomed relief. We live on that terrace. No mosquitos! This is a problem at many other rentals. We can leave the doors open and sit out at night. The furniture. The furniture is top quality and have thick cushions. Even the pool loungers have great cushions. The beds and pillows are comfortable. The bed linens are soft. There is comfortable seating for everyone, it’s not musical chairs. The ambience. The grounds and the house are so pretty. Night time can be enchanting. The lighting on the terrace is soft and the lights in the pool add to the magic. Restaurants within walking distance. Sea Shed, Royal Westmoreland, Adrian’s, Real Jamaican, Bombas, Cici’s and Grandene’s! The Housekeeper! Sophia is the best housekeeper on this island; she has very high standards for herself and she’s meticulous. She is very welcoming, caring, thoughtful and respectful. She starts early but stays at the back of the property doing laundry. She will very quietly sweep the terraces, tidy the cushions and wipe the tables. You won't hear her. She does not come inside until she sees you up and about. She’s very fast and very thorough. Sophia zigs when you zag, she’s never in your way. She will do what makes you happy. Response-time. When even the littlest problem crops up, the staff and owner are on it and it’s resolved as quickly as possible. They are really big into customer satisfaction. These are the reasons we keeping coming back!

Lovely villa
GGV is a lovely, well appointed villa. The grounds are good for a small/medium group - there are 8 loungers around the pool but if you are indoors then you can only sit 4 to watch the TV indoors, and then a further great separate TV lounge for another 2 people. There were just 2 of us and we are used to a lot of space! Sophia and Trevor were very nice but arrived by 7am every day. They were very respectful and really helpful so you just need to work out what works best with you for cleaning and help etc. My only small complaint would be that its really really dangerous to walk by the pool when its wet - either from the rain or cleaning .

Gibbs Glade
Absolutely perfect for a family and friend attending a wedding. Owner and host couldn't have been more knowledgable or helpful. The whole stay was fun from start to finish. Great location - short walk to the beach - and everything one could need at the Villa itself. We'll be back!

Pure relaxation
We finally got to Gibbs Glade Villa at our third attempt due to Covid and it was more than worth the wait. Maria was incredibly accommodating and patient through the whole process and a fount of good advice and information. She arranged Fast Track (well worth it) and pick up at the airport which made the arrival experience a breeze and everything was ready for us at the Villa. When we got there, Sophia was very respectful and helpful and we saw the care she took in looking after the villa as was the case with the garden. It is a real home from home with everything thought of and very comfortable. The terrace is where we spent most of the time either eating, chatting, reading or just relaxing. The location is perfect as Mullins Beach and Gibbs Beach are both just 5 minutes away. Mullins is busier with sea sports and the great Sea Shed with great food, cocktails and beach loungers. Gibbs is a little paradise, never busy and a picture postcard Caribbean beach. You must also try Local & Co. in Speightstown which is relatively new, uses local ingredients and is very high quality. We have been going to Barbados for 15 years and tried lots of different and very nice villas but this is the best and the one we will definitely return to.

Paradise!
We returned last week after 17 amazing days at GGV. I can honestly say that it was the most relaxing holiday we have ever had. We are a family of 5 (3 grown up kids who still come away as we pay for them!!) and from the moment we walked through the door we felt at home. The villa had everything you need and if you had a question whether it was about the villa or Barbados Sophia (housekeeper) was always on hand to help, she was truly amazing. My experience was great from start to finish as Maria (owner) helped with everything from booking/fast track/car hire/food delivery/pcr info etc. Nothing was too much trouble. The area was fantastic and I think Gibbs beach will always be my favourite beach in the world - clear turquoise water, white sand and usually just us on the beach. Mullins was also great, we loved cocktails at Adrians while we watched the sunset and dinner at Seashed was always perfect. We travelled all over the island mainly by car but I think one of our best experiences was the yellow bus (not for the faint hearted!!). We always felt safe as they take covid seriously but never felt it affected our stay. We felt very lucky to be in the villa as a hotel would have meant a different type of curfew (ours was cocktails by the pool!). Writing about this makes me feel sad to be sitting in my office in London but we will definitely go back. Thanks again for the best summer x
