... a wonderful time as always !
We had a wonderful time. Cook, Roslyn, and housekeeper, Marlene, are brilliant. Property perfectly located.
My friends and i, had a fantastic time staying at your villa it was well organized, clean and tranquil, your staff was pleasant and willing to assist us, each room was very cozy and relaxing from a long day out. I was also pleased we had everything to our convenience, also all the necessities we needed so we were very comfortable. Thanks again to your staff in Barbados for making it an enjoyable stay. Looking forward to visiting next year.
My family and I had a very pleasant stay and loved every minute of it. The staff was wonderful and very cheerful the whole time we were there. I would recommend this place without hesitation to anyone.
My husband and I plus two of our children in their 20's stayed at the Firefly Villa at Merlin Bay for a week in April. The villa is around a 10 min, drive from Holetown and within walking distance of a number of restaurants. I loved the fact that the villa had 3 BR with King-sized beds and bathrooms. Each BR had its own terrace and the Master Suite had a beautiful little terrace where we had our coffee in the morning and watched the Sea. The villa was very private and had its own plunge pool which was cleaned every day, as well as a main pool. It was also a short walk to the beautiful beach and sea.
The villa rental includes its own cook and housekeeper, both of whom were very friendly and efficient. It was nice not having to cook but the trade-off is somewhat a lack of privacy. We really like to BBQ (a small BBQ is included with the villa) and would have preferred that the Cook come for perhaps a couple of days rather than for the whole stay, but having the Housekeeper was great.
The kitchen appliances were dated and the fridge did not work properly and should be replaced. The oven was replaced during our stay.
The only downside really for us was the noise coming from the nearby villas where there were young children who started crying around 7am. Although we could not necessarily see the people staying there, we definitely could hear them and they did not make any attempt to keep quiet. I realize there was no way to avoid the noise but it did mar our experience somewhat as the noise was pretty constant.
Firefly was a perfect fit for our family of 4. The views from the second floor balconies were incredible, the back patio relaxing, the pool quiet and the beach was perfect. The swimming and snorkeling were terrific. The condo itself was suitable but could use a kitchen upgrade as the current one is very tired and a bit "sticky". The beds and pillows are tired so a person with a bad back may be quite uncomfortable. All in all, we enjoyed our stay immensely and would return.
Our experience here was fab and everyone was so nice. We cant wait to return!
