Immerse yourself in the Barbados Vibe!! Loved it!!
This place is great for so many reasons and loved our 2 weeks away. Location is far enough away from the busy Bridgetown area and far less touristy. The locals are warm friendly people and we felt welcomed and safe. Moontown has everything you need within a 5 minute stumble or walk. Moontown has a well stocked grocery store, bar and local hub. Karaoke at Moontown bar is a must! Directly across the street from Moontown is Merton's Fish fry on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Smell of Mahogany wood fire, fresh fish, casual setting and sound of the ocean.(Bring Cash-no credit or debit card) Oistens fish fry is a must do too with lots of sites and sounds party atmosphere. Holetown is a nice place to go for the day although found it was a bit too ritzy and uptight. Speightstown is the closest large town and has lots of spots to see and keeps the local Barbadian feel. Bridgetown has lots to see but found we only did a couple day trips there as we liked very much where we were. Traveling around the Island was easy enough. We did not have a car rental and may try that next time for a bit more freedom. Cabs are relatively easy to get and a bit pricey. Once you get onto the the bussing system is a good and cheap way to get around. $2 Barbadian gets you a large bus and local zone buses are little vans that get you in the local district areas. Got dropped off right by the house and the best pick up spot along the main drag before the Crab Hill turn off. There is no real time schedule and have to cope with that especially getting back from the north end of the island. The house is nice with a casual comfortable layout with a kitchen had all you need if you wanted to cook. We did not use the air conditioning in the bedroom rather left windows open and fans on to fall asleep to the sounds of the ocean and tree frogs. As you can see from pictures the owner posted there is a stairs that leads right into the ocean and a beach within a 5 minute walk north or south of the house. Awesome snorkeling with fish, rays and saw a turtle off the beach too. The owner called prior to our arrival and prior to our departure and was very accommodating to our needs. We did a few tours but our favorites were a catamaran tour with snorkelling with turtles and sunken ships on a sunset tour and the other was Animal flower Cave with a tour guide thru the caves with lunch overlooking the north end of the island. We highly recommend this property and Barbados as a destination.
Thank you very much for your review of your vacation at our
Property in Barbados. We do hope you will vacation again with us in the near future.

If you come here you will love it... the photos promoting the villa are great but the place when you get there is soooo much better, the view from the balcony is to die for!
So easy to get around the island from here as there’s a bus stop right by which is an experience in itself and when you come back you feel you can get away from it all and chill.
The fish pot 2 minutes walk away serves tasty food at an expense or drop into moontown and there’s ‘take away food’ that’s tasty at a great price
While there the owners phoned twice to check all was going well which was nice and Natalie was brill and really helpful when called upon!
The little bay down the side of the villa is a hidden gem for snorkelling and is full of cool fish including puffa fish, octopus, eels to name just a few... so to sum up can’t fault it and will definitely be going back!!!!
We thank you very much for choosing our Villa as your recent vacation spot. We do hope that you and your family will vacation with us again in the very near future.

Beautiful views and friendly locals
My wife and I and another couple spent 12 nights at the upper unit recently (Jul/Aug). The best thing about the unit has to be the view from both the balcony and even the living area - never got tired of that view :-).
During our stay, the lower unit was not occupied for most of the time so we were allowed to spend time on the lower terrace and use the hose they had there to rinse off after coming back from the beach. The owners (Les and Linda) called to welcome us and to ensure that all was OK. They also called to thank us for staying before we left. The property manager (Natalie) was very helpful and pleasant.
This is not a touristy place, so although you may pass a few tourists, you are pretty much surrounded by locals. This was a good thing as we were surprised at just how friendly Bajan people are. Most would say hello and wish us a good vacation, and we shared a few beers with locals at Moontown which was nice. As people who have spent many vacations at all-inclusives, this was an interesting change.
Note that we were told it would be better not to drink tap water, so we ended up buying an awful lot of bottled water which was not cheap (about $5 USD/gallon locally at MoonTown and about $3.50 USD at Massy's Supermarket in Holetown.)
The unit itself is well equipped and looks much like the pictures - so no surprises there. We were happy with the place although we did find the main living area to be warm at times. Both bedrooms have AC so you will sleep comfortably, but quite surprisingly there was no breeze at all coming from the ocean. In fact, the breezes came inland and blew out towards the ocean.
Our bathroom had a great shower and always had plenty of warm water. Having a washer/dryer was nice bonus. There is indeed a neighbor's dog that tends to bark at night at various hours - not a big deal - just a nuisance.
A suggestion that we made to Natalie was to get rid of the carpet in the other (master) bedroom and replace it with tile (like our bedroom).
The best thing about the place has to be the view - the worst has to be the roads on the west coast - certainly not the most relaxing place to drive! Too many narrow roads that are not very well kept. We were told that the east coast roads were much better - but we never got there.
For the money we paid, this place is good value. You have small beaches within walking distance and snorkelling directly in front - and that view .... not too shabby :-
Location, location, location
We have stayed at many villas and rentals in the Caribbean as well as in Europe, and this one is one of the best. If you like to get away from the touristy areas, and take things at your own pace, the location is awesome, with the beautiful Caribbean literally at your feet, a bus stop less than 100 yds away, and a grocery store just around the corner. It is also a very safe place to stay, and the people living around made us feel very welcome.
We did most of our grocery shopping at Moontown, just around the corner, and bought take out food at the little "deli" counter just outside it, to eat at home. The Fishpot, an excellent restaurant with very friendly and efficient service, was just a five minute walk away. We even walked to Speightstown from the villa, about half an hour. It is worth the visit, with its restaurants and bars along the beach.
We never needed a car, but did rent one for one day to do some sightseeing, and to purchase some more of the gorgeous pottery at Earthworks. Although this was our fourth visit to Barbados, there were still things we had never seen, such as the Wildlife Reserve https://www.barbadoswildlifereserve.com/ , the North Point Restaurant on the cliffs at the north end of the island, and the Atlantis, near Bathsheba.
Linda and Les are excellent hosts. They called us often just to see how we were getting on. Their property manager, Valdez, couldn't have been nicer, and was always available when needed. Linda, Les and Valdez were always keen to hear our suggestions, and would act on them when possible. For example, we mentioned to Valdez that it would be nice to have a lounge chair on the upper level, where we stayed, and within half an hour, had brought us one!
A small note; if you are planning to listen to music on your iPhone, you will need to bring an adaptor, as the sound system there uses the docking pad from an older model iPod. But, the sound of the waves was usually music enough for us!
We would definitely come back to the Sea Spray, and we would bring our whole family, too!
We thank you for all your kind words and we do hope that you will return and bring
the whole family.

A place I want to visit again
This is a great rental for folks looking to get away from the formality of a hotel. In exchange for some of the conveniences, you get a home away from home with a well-equipped kitchen, a comfortable bed with A/C in the room if you want it. The best part is the amazing view off the balcony, the sunsets and the sound of the water splashing again the rocks below. Great hospitality from the owners Linda and Wes. Mr. Valdes Smith is a pleasure at check-in and check out. I will certainly return.
Thanks again for choosing to vacation with us at Sea Spray.
We hope that you will return in the near future.
