We have been to Barbados several times, and Nelson Gay House is the most wonderful place to stay. We took our adult children and their significant others, we didn't need all the bedrooms, but could see how many more people could be accommodated. Everything desired was available, from the use of tennis courts, spa, and water sports next door through Cobblers Cove, to the absolute privacy of the property for relaxing, to the proximity of Speightstown, and the accessibility of the water right out the gate. Some homes have wonderful views but no access! This home has both. The breakers afforded a place to snorkel, and for two days there were high enough waves to boogie board without fear of a rocky bottom. The staff was supremely professional. The chef did the shopping and prepared three meals a day, not the usual two we've been offered in the past. The laundry was done daily with our clothes brought back early each afternoon. The butler had coffee ready every afternoon at 4:00. The monkeys came and went, and we fed them only on the last morning, I recommend feeding them the first day! They are adorable and keep their distance. The landscaping is incredible as well. Banana and mango trees, breadfruit, even a sandbox tree. The bedrooms are comfortable and inviting. The formal dining room is exquisite, we only used it on Valentine's Day for two, by candlelight, after sending the kids out to Cin Cin! The house has the feel of a loved home, not just a rental house. There are games and snorkeling equipment, books and a Sonos system for music. You will never want to leave. We didn't!

"Everything was just perfect."
Hi Aine, We had an amazing vacation at Tamarind Hills. Everything was just perfect. The pictures do not do this location justice. Thank you to both you and Noreen for your help in coordinating a very relaxing vacation! I have attached a pic of my favourite view. I miss it! We definitely hope to return one day. Thanks again!

"What a beautiful villa"
What a beautiful villa in such a relaxing atmosphere. The staff was wonderful and the food was incredible. All the little things the staff did meant a lot to us from bringing umbrellas to us so we could walk from the pool house to the main villa without getting wet when it rained, to bringing us delicious drinks at the pool, to making sure our laundry was done every day - in general the way they looked after us was just the best!

"An amazing week at Waterside 405"
A note of thanks for the amazing week at Waterside 405. Brian and I had an incredible time, and wanted to express our appreciation for all that you and your Barbados based team did! From our arrival, you had everything covered, starting with groceries and cold drinks stocked in the fridge. If we needed dinner reservations or attraction advice, a rental car or taxi, you had us covered! The villa was clean, beds were comfortable and all was exactly as the photos. The location was extraordinary, as we watched sunsets at night and fishing boats in the morning. We loved walking the pristine beaches, and floating in the oceans waves or pool, in the afternoon. The location was outstanding, we could walk easily to the area’s amazing restaurants and the Paynes Bay Fish Market, home of the freshest tuna, in the world! They even tell you how to prepare and cook like a gourmet Bajan chef! With gratitude, I recommend Waterside 405 and your group, as the ultimate team for making dream vacations come true Lori

"To say that we had an amazing time would be an understatement."
Aine and Noreen, To say that we had an amazing time would be an understatement. Pearl East was the perfect property for our group – we enjoyed everything about it. The property itself was breathtaking – and the service that came with it pushed the whole experience over the top. Chef Josip delivered delicious, top-shelf meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner every day. One evening, he celebrated our birthdays by literally moving the dinner table to the beach where we dined under the stars next to the waves. We expected competence – and we received excellence. Our butler, Ren, was extremely attentive – making each and every member of our 8-person group feel special and pampered. Auriol and Delphine were there to greet us and introduce us to the property and would stop by every day to make sure every detail was going great. Our activities were expertly planned and we took advantage of jet skis, a sunset boat cruise and massages – all of which went perfectly. The onsite exercise facility was outstanding and enjoyed by many in our group. We even watched a movie in the private theater on our last night. Transportation to and from the airport went flawlessly. Oh, and the weather was ideal. In sum, we and every member of our party couldn’t be happier with our experience. Thank you both so much for helping to make it a truly special experience none of us will ever forget. Please let me know how/where to post an online review – we’d love to do so. Warmest regards, Rich.

"The time in Antigua was fabulous and the wedding was spectacular."
Hi Aine and Noreen, The time in Antigua was fabulous and the wedding was spectacular. Thanks to you for all you did to make things work out so well. As you indicated, Sandcastle truly was great. I really appreciate all the work you did to respond to the loss of the original Villa - although it was more distance from my son and others, it really was a sensational place, and became a highlight of the trip. And the folks associated with you were great as well - every one of them was helpful, responsive, professional, and very nice to work with. Katia and Simone were particularly helpful and responsive, and we always felt we were in good hands. The housekeeper was great, as were the chef and his crew. So, thank you again. Please let me know if there are any loose ends to tie up - I hope everyone felt taken care of - we certainly hope everyone felt appreciated for all they did at such an important time for us. I’d certainly be glad to offer a testimonial of any kind if helpful, and hope we can do something together again. Regards, Peter
