The property was clean and the air conditioners were available when we needed them. Birds were always chirping from the trees that surround the property. The Pool guy always came on schedule and the property management team was there to assist when we called. The beaches (and there are a number of them) were close by and allowed us to go for early morning walks from the villa every day. The water was crystal clear. Bakeries are close by and great for getting fresh bread and pastries. Speightstown, nearby, is a quaint, but quiet old town. If you like English colonial architecture, you will find it here.
It was a Fantastic Location and great for families.
Hello everyone, Thank you for leaving such wonderful comments about our villa and Speightstown. We too love the bakery's fresh bread and the walks into town and to the beaches. We would love to have you return and wish you well for the future.
Many thanks again.
Kate and Andrew
A great place to stay in Speightstown
We spent one week in this wonderful villa in Speightstown at the end of March. A short walk to downtown, grocery stores, art gallery, or the beaches and snorkeling. Lots of places to go for lunch or supper. Plunge pool was great to cool off after a long day of exploring.
Hello Brian, Thank you to you and your group, for sharing your wonderful experience of staying at Emcee, in Speightstown, with HomeAway visitors. We really appreciate you taking time to write a review and thank you for choosing to stay with us.
Please do come back again. We so enjoyed you staying. Until next time. Kate and Andrew.
We found the property to high standard
The property was clean spacious goo location,the only thing we experienced was the privacy of the garden and pool area apart from that everything was fine would definitely return many thanks
Hello Barry and Deb, Thank you very much for your kind review. We were so happy to host such a lovely couple. I shall certainly pass your comments on to our manageress, Helen and her team- they will be pleased to hear this. Our garden area is to be started in summer next year, with plans for a larger decking area and a wall to one side. Our pool was refurbished two summers ago and everyone is delighted with it. Now it is the turn of the surrounding area, all going well.
Please do come again and see the results.
Happy New year to you both.
Terrific villa in great location
Emcee is a smashing villa. Spacious and well equipped. The plunge pool particularly welcome after blisteringly hot days sightseeing. The air con is very effective and you need it. The beds are comfy and the living/kitchen with patio is bright and airy. Endless hot water from the solar panels. The neighbourhood is large and mostly families; everyone speaks to you and is friendly. One chap even said “thank you for coming” which was lovely. You feel very safe. You really need a car to stay here but watch out for the roads. Potholes a speciality! Two major supermarkets - Jordan’s in Speightstown is colourful and local. Massys in Holetown is very Waitrose/Whole Foods. Wine is hideously expensive. I'm glad I bought some at duty free in Bridgetown airport. The beer is good and cheap and the rum punch served everywhere is an experience. Powerful stuff.
Speightstown has a charm of its own; lots of different shops and plenty of eateries. Worth visiting Hunte's Garden. It's a delight. The boat trips are good value for money and give that other perspective of the place.
Dealings with Kate the owner have been delightful. All questions answered quickly. The local contact lady, Helen, dealt with our one issue speedily.
Thoroughly recommend Emcee and would stay again. SatNav would help you find it more easily if arriving in the dark.
In summary, great place, great location. There are so many rental properties to choose from around here but you won’t go far wrong with this sweet place.
Hello Chris, Thank you so much for posting your review. We are touched that you enjoyed staying at Emcee and enjoyed her comfort and airiness. Yes, she is in a super neighbourhood with friendly people all around her, everyone looking out for one another. Helen is always on hand to help guests and has a super team behind her. Please do come again and explore more of this magical island.
Kindest Regards, The Scotts.

This place is just perfect, relaxing and magical! Having the pool was a fantastic bonus and the place is situated right near the beach and local amenities.
We took our 3 year old and he had a great time. I would seriously recommend and we will be looking to come back.
It is its own mini paradise
Thank you for your kind comments. We too would love to have you all return. We are always updating our villa and adding new things to it, inside and outside, so please do return and see what else we have done. Helen enjoyed meeting you and told us how much you enjoyed your stay. Yes, we love how close we are to the town and beach too- so very handy for everything. Looking forward to you re booking in the near future. Take great care. Kate
Superb value, excellent location, spacious and light, a home from home with some extras.
We spent a month in Emcee and quite honestly it was not long enough. From the moment we entered this spacious villa, we felt very welcome and totally relaxed. So glad we arranged to have Jenni pick us up and thank you to the Scotts for arranging this for us. Kate and Andrew were so very helpful and accommodating; their Rough Guide being so interesting and helpful. Great ideas and suggestions made. Annette came once every week to clean the villa and to change the beds. A little added extra in our holiday and greatly appreciated. Speightstown has changed remarkably; its beach now having around 7 catering outlets, so really no need to leave Speightstown all vacation. We did read about a group who experienced extraordinarily, high, electrical consumption, but ours was well within the allowed 22 units per day, no problem. We simply ensured that the AC did not run when we were out of the villa. The beds were very comfy; the owners had just purchased new mattresses and we were first to use. Slept well and enjoyed early morning bird song from bed with a coffee, while looking out the window at tropical, palms. Whilst we were there, a company came to update the Wifi to super fast broadband- WOW, it is faster than we have at home. We always enjoyed our walks to Heywoods Beach either through the estate, or via the ginnel, which was a great short cut. Some evenings we had a sun downer at Port St Charles and saw "our beach" from the other side. We did hire a car, however it is very possible to access shopping and the beaches without one. We will certainly be back next year, so thank you for having us.
Thank you for your superb review. So glad you enjoyed your stay at Emcee and that you too, loved Speightstown and how it is developing. We look forward to your return visit to us next year. As always, there will be more updates and refurbishments for you to experience, both in Emcee, as well as in Speightstown.

Mein besonderes Interesse ist Essen und Trinken. Und Barbados ist ein fantastischer Ort, um diese Freuden zu genießen. Aber nehmen Sie sich nicht die Mühe, ein Hochglanzmagazin zu ergattern, das Ihnen von all den auffälligen Restaurants erzählt, in denen alle Promis hingehen, denn wir liefern unseren eigenen "Rough Guide". Und nachdem ich 20 Jahre lang an der Westküste gekaut und geschlürft habe, bin ich ziemlich sicher, dass ich einen guten Rat gebe.
Küste / Strand:
Der Strand von Heywoods an der Westküste ist 5-10 Minuten zu Fuß entfernt. Alle anderen Strände entlang der Küste sind mit öffentlichen Verkehrsmitteln oder mit dem Auto erreichbar. Es gibt jedoch begrenzte Parkplätze an den beliebtesten Orten (Mullins), daher würden wir den Bus empfehlen. Wasserski ist am Strand verfügbar. Ich habe Jeremys Visitenkarte in der Küche hinterlassen. Sein Boot steht auch zum Skifahren und Angeln zur Verfügung.
Grantley Adams Airport: Wir können Ihre Abholung und "Meet & Greet" entweder am Flughafen oder in der Villa arrangieren. Aufgrund unserer Nähe zum Strand, Stadt und lokalen Bus-Service, ist es nicht notwendig, ein Auto zu mieten. Es ist jedoch nützlich. Wir empfehlen eine Gesellschaft, die wir gefunden haben, die ein Familienunternehmen ist, zuverlässige Verleihfirma und sie werden in die Villa liefern. Speightstown hat seine Restaurants im Laufe der Jahre vergrößert und hat eine große Auswahl an interessanten Orten entlang der Küstenstraße. Keine Notwendigkeit, nach Süden zu gehen. Die meisten Restaurants haben Meerblick und sind sehr angenehm zum Verweilen. Speightstown Beach ist angenehm und lebhaft, in einer ruhigen, un-touristischen Art und Weise.
Speightstown: 6-8 Minuten zu Fuß. Holetown: 10-15 Minuten mit dem Auto / Bus. Bridgetown: 35-40 Minuten mit dem Auto / Bus. Bathsheba (Ostküste) 30 Minuten Auto, 60 Minuten Bus.
Speightstown enthält eine Reihe von Lebensmittelmärkten, Geschäften, Banken, Kunstgalerien, Bars und Restaurants. Vor allem die "Fishermans", die am Strand und ist sehr günstig. Tauchen kann auch von "Reefs & Wreckers" organisiert werden.
Wir liefern Ihnen einen "Rough Guide", der das Ergebnis unserer 20-jährigen Urlaubsbeziehung mit Barbados ist. Sie erhalten nicht nur einen großartigen Einblick in die Insel, Sie können auch mindestens £ 50 pro Person sparen. In den letzten 5 Jahren hat Speightstown seine Esslokale erweitert und bietet nun eine große Auswahl und einen geeigneten Ort für alle Arten von Menschen.
