Hi Julie, We had a fantastic time thank you. It was great to get away and for a nice length of time. Thanks for everything and all your hard work and the same yet again to Yvonne as well. Please also pass on our thanks to Rosalyn at Smugglers as we missed saying goodbye to her on our last day. We left some cash to say thanks with Alison the chef for both of them. We also forgot to write a note in the visitors book but please pass on our thanks to the owners. It is a beautiful place not just in terms of location but in style and comfort. They have wonderful taste and a home for building memories. We hope to stay again when I’ve saved up again!!! Speak soon and best wishes for the busy season. Ian

We Loved This Place
We Loved This Place

Smugglers 5 is stunning. We have been to Barbados many times before but this property is by far our favourite so far. The terrace is huge and has stunning views. It was so nice in fact that we didn't go out nearly as much as we originally planned. It was hard to beat having lunch and dinner on the terrace. We did walk down the beach to Daphnes Restaurant and to Treasure Beach and both were excellent. The housekeeper Roslin was a gem. Thank you, Yvonne and Julie, from Exceptional Villas for recommending it to us. I hope that we will be back very soon.

Loved my time here

Expert Review Pic I simply loved staying at Smugglers 5! The sense of space from the moment we arrived was breath-taking. I enjoyed the view from the huge terrace so much. Definitely one of my favourite spots. I love recommending Smugglers Cove to our guests - I know they'll love it there.

By From Exceptional Villas
Amazing location, sublime sunsets !!

Expert Review Pic I stayed at the beautiful Smugglers Cove 5 in October of this year and I was sad to leave it. This is an ideal villa for a family getaway or group of friends. The bedrooms are all tastefully decorated and come with large ensuite bathrooms, the living room is spacious and the balcony area boasts breathtaking views of Paynes Bay and Caribbean ocean. Guests have private access to the beach and the Smugglers Cove building is close to many wonderful restaurants, bars and grocery stores. This was a wonderful stay and I look forward to my return !!

One of my personal favourite villas

Expert Review Pic I am very lucky to have stayed in many of the villa rentals in Barbados over the years we have been doing business on the island. But Smugglers Cove 5 is truly one of my favourite places to stay. The huge terrace is amazing and hard to leave. The view is stunning and it just feels so relaxing. There are loads of sunbeds and super comfortable areas to relax, read a book or chat with friends. It is also one of the best places on the island to enjoy the beautiful Barbados sunsets. The interiors of the villa are very luxurious and even the most discerning travellers will be happy. Roslyn the housekeeper is an absolute pleasure and will do everything she can to ensure you have a relaxing time. I love Smugglers 5 and cannot recommend it highly enough.

One of my personal favourite villas in Barbados

Expert Review Pic I can honestly say I was blown away from the moment I entered Smugglers Cove No 5. I have stayed in no 6 before and thought this was absolutely stunning but when I arrived to see no 5 I was in awe. Everything from the layout and beautiful art pieces to the stunning views and spacious seating areas. The villa is perfect for couples and offers privacy and space to all guests. It is worth nothing that No 5 does not have a plunge pool or a media room like Smugglers Cove no 6 but it has a wonderful Caribbean feel to it and is stylish and modern too. I personally love the décor in the villa and would gladly stay here every time I come to Barbados.
