This was an ideal location for us - the veranda provided shade for my husband and the garden full sun for me. We watched turtles swim in the clear blue sea whilst dining on the veranda and I was actually privileged to swim with one. The beds are comfortable, bathroom adequate and the kitchen well equipt. Elaine and Shirley are always available to see to your needs (although these will be few - what else will you need when the sea is at your doorstep). Jordan's supermarket is just across the road for any provisions and a Waitrose type supermarket a 10 minute bus ride way.
The property is a little tired but we loved it and are happily returning in 2017 for our 50th anniversary
The 60+ Club
Having saved up the pennies for a few years to celebrate my 60th birthday, I decided to take the family away for a good holiday, rather than spend it all on a night of boozing and dancing.
I had wanted to go to Barbados for some years and looked for a place that we could call our own. We selected Alverton Villas as we wanted somewhere close to the beach. Well, if you got any closer you would be on a boat! It is steps away from the sea and the beach is perfect. I cannot recommend this collection of villas highly enough to anyone looking for a perfect vacation getaway.
We rented all the villas for a month and it was one of the best decisions I have ever made. They were all spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Elaine and Shirley looked after us so well they almost ended up with squatters. Shirley even cooked for us a few times while we were there, for a very reasonable agreed fee, to save us having to do it ourselves. Real Barbadian food!
We often went swimming with the turtles that tend to frequent the sea outside the villas and with the crystal clear waters it was a real experience.
We really did not want to leave and with any luck the wife and I will be going back next year.
I have been travelling to Barbados frequently since 1997, my partner and I didn't discover the Alverton Cottage/Villa complex until 2003, since then, we wouldn't consider staying anywhere else. I have read through all of the reviews and they all hit the nail on the head, it is quite simply one of the best kept secrets in Barbados. The location is superb, you couldn't get any closer to the water's edge and in my humble opinion, offers some of the best snorkeling on the island, you never get tired of spotting new types of fish and if you're lucky enough, come face to face with the local giant sea turtle. With a well-stocked supermarket just across the road, excellent bus connections to the lively Holetown and the renowned Il Tiempo restaurant/bar just a short stroll away, offering top notch Italian cuisine and super friendly hosts, you won't want to stray too far from the Alverton. Over the last 13 or so years that I have been lucky enough to stay at the Alverton, no expense has been spared by the friendly owners, Michael and Elaine who work tirelessly to keep both the property and gardens up to a very high standard. I can't go without making a quick mention to Shirley the housekeeper who knows a thing or two and will recite stories that will have you in stitches, Shirley is also known to bake a mean banana cake, just say yes! Despite living in South East Asia, where we have untold number of gorgeous tropical resorts, Barbados continues to offer something unique and one of the best ways to experience it, is to stay at the Alverton, you won't be disappointed... See you next May Elaine & Shirley, we can't wait!
Alverton Cottage and indeed the Villa and Studio are one the best self catering places to stay in Barbados.
The location is perfect, right on one of the best beaches, close to shops, bars/restaurants, local transport and has ample parking.
The complex is secure and we were royally looked after by Shirley and Elaine who came everyday to make sure the place was up to scratch and that we had everything we needed
We stayed in the Cottage which is lovely - there was nothing better than sitting on the Veranda with a cold one and watching the world go by on the beach.
Stepping through the gate onto the beach every morning was a real treat. One reviewer has said there are stones in the water - yes there are but there is also a very wide sandy inlet right outside the cottage that takes to to as deep as you want to go - we didn't have any problems.
The owners, Michael and Elaine and lovely people and will made sure we had a great time - you will too.
We've already booked for March 2017 and can't wait.
J & B
Alverton Cottage is quite idyllic, we love it! With very comfortable accommodation it is well equipped (including good wifi) and is sited so close to the beach such that you can sit on the balcony and hear the waves lapping the shore at night and watch the setting sun and passing cruise ships in the distance. During the day the beach and Fitts Village with its small supermarket is peaceful and relaxing with none of the hubbub of those all-inclusive resorts but with easy access to Holetown or the rest of the island by bus or car.
For a couple or young family we highly recommend the Alverton Cottage. My wife and I have booked again for 2017 (our 5th visit), I think that says it's all!
Visited in June 2016 for a 10 day stay.
Beautiful west coast location in Fitts Village with local shops, friendly neighbours and great transport links. Delightful property with well proportioned living space and a large outdoor courtyard area and a parking space. Direct gated access onto the stunning white sandy beach and swimming with turtles and tropical fish just off the beach. Local car hire allowed for excursions around the whole island.
Had an amazing time at the property and were so impressed that we are returning for a 2 week visit later this year.
Highly recommended for all age groups of holiday makers.
