Hello, I had not seen this review and I apologize for taking so long to respond.

This was a valid criticism. I was one of the first owners in the development and the builder (who has maintained the common grounds, including the pool) would only have the pool cleaned once per week. The pool is in an AMAZING location in a natural coral alcove at the foot of mount standfast, but there is literally a forest above it. So, when a really hard rain happens, or sometimes a very hard wind, the pool will get dirty. All of the units are now sold except for one, and I've asked the builder to make absolutely certain the pool is clean all the time. Now that the other owners are in the development we're keeping the pool clean ourselves.

This was a valid criticism, and it wasn't because we don't care. It was because the builder would only clean it once per week. But going forward it will be kept much cleaner. Thank you for taking the time to point that out.

“Fantastic ”

Just arrived home after 2 weeks in the villa and had a fantastic time. We were met by Joan the housekeeped as we arrived who made us feel very welcome, showed us round and came twice a week to clean up. The villa is spot on, modern clean and quite stunning. We made great use of the pool area which was powerwashed and cleaned regularly. The beautiful beach is very close and the area is very safe there. The locals are friendly, warm and very helpful and you feel really secure with them in the locality. We went to sonias which is a local shop a 2 minute walk away and she has a bar in the shop and by request she cooked 6 of us 2 fabulous evening meals. We asked for jerk chicken one night, steak another with homemade coleslaw, chips and spicy bread fruit salad. She even cooked breakfast 3 morning's for us, all fantastic.
Zaccios was our favourite restaurant straight after the happy hour at surfside bar. Ju Ju's on the beach is good and if you want a good deal on a hire car call Dorrett at the Barbados car rental company. David the villa owner was great to deal with and checked on us by email a couple of times. Nothing negative to say at all, many thanks and we will certainly return in the future.

You were an absolutely fantastic guest. Thank you for the kind review. I hope you get the chance to come back some day.

P.S - thanks for the tip about Sonias. I didn't know she actually cooked food there, I thought it was just a bar/convenience store! I'll have to try it out.

Golden Acre is perfectly located in the heart of St James, two minutes to a beautiful beach, amazing beach bars and a restaurant with stunning views.

The pool is a great size, and the accommodations are immaculate.

“Great Stay”

Listing is totally accurate. Property was very well maintained and super clean! All questions answered quickly and professionally - David is great and very easy to deal with. We travelled with our 8-year old daughter. Property is quiet, relaxing. People around are super friendly, always felt safe. The walk to the beach was no problem - watch for cars on the main road if you have little ones. The beach was lovely and very safe for swimming and snorkelling. We also loved hanging out by the pool - most of the time we were the only ones there. My daughter loves all things nature....every late afternoon we would sit by the pool and watch the monkeys in the trees, then as night fell the bats came out high overhead, and as it got dark there were tons of fireflies sparkling all around. Loved. it.

We spent six days in this nice villa, this was the first stop of our journey in Barbados. The villa is close to the beach, short walking distance, very safe surroundings where local people greet strangers on the street, really nice and special.
The house was clean and with everything for a pleasant stay.
The owner was very careful and helpful, lot of good recommandations very helpful for us, being first time in Barbados.
Thanks, David, we enjoyed the stay and we love Barbados!
