Interaction with guestsWe collect our guests from the airport and we check them in. We have an office within walking distance, so we are always close by to interact or help with anything. Our villas are staffed with a housekeeper who typically visits every other day, an office admin/receptionist and a property manager. Other service personnel may visit from time to time (such as pool or garden maintenance, LPG gas suppliers etc). We can do your grocery shopping and food takeaway deliveries while you await your second covid test results. We can set up your second covid test for you in the villa.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

The villa was very nice, clean, and well kept. It was in a quiet location and within walking distance to restaurants, stores, and the beach. However it is a $40 BD to the Gap or other party places. Carlton was nice and always responded timely if we had questions. We had a late flight and he let us check out late with no problems.

The property is well maintained and Carlton takes pride in ensuring everything meets your needs. We stayed for a month with our infant son and couldn't have asked for a better location. It was walking distance to restaurants, groceries, beach, and centrally located for driving to other attractions. Carlton was able to provide a pack n' play, stroller, and high chair for our son. The pool was very handy to have on those days when we didn't want to be out and about. Carlton and Peggy were very helpful with suggestion of places to go and things to do.

We spent 10 nights including Christmas at this Villa with son and his wife, Carlton the host and his team made our stay extra special and nothing was too much trouble. The Villa is well equipped and is conveniently located to Holetown shops and the beach. The Pool is surrounded by tropical gardens and is very private. Would recommend anyone to stay here you wont be dissappointed.

Spent the week with the wife and 2 yr old daughter. Very clean and roomy - two bedrooms/bathrooms upstairs and nice big kitchen/living room below. Nice deck with pool, surrounded by greenery, plants etc. About 4 min walk to the beach - access via the hotel at the bottom of the street or walk another 1 min south to the 'public' access near Surf Side restaurant. Tons of restaurants, shops, cafe's in town, all minutes walk from the condo. Big Supermarket to buy all your supplies as well. Yet despite the closeness of these somehow none of the 'noise' from the road makes it up to the house and it's quiet and peaceful all day. I routinely took naps with my girl and it was bliss. All manor of birds, including humming birds, as well as a group of monkeys you can visit in the morning just down the street make for a wonderful environment. We befriended the local kitty who was extremely acclimatized to people and whom our daughter loved to feed and play with. Carleton is professional and courteous and will help you when he can. Eg. He provided a small pack-play for our daughter and arranged pick-up from the airport. No complaints, all good and we'll stay there again next time we visit Barbados.

The Villa Vida Mejor Villa was the perfect place for our family to stay on our first trip to Barbados. The moment we arrived (late at night) Carlton greeted us with bread, for toast, tea, and other fixings for breakfast. He was always present when needed, but never intrusive. The Villa is comfortable and spacious, and the private pool is a serene getaway surrounded by tropical plants. It is located in a quiet neighborhood, but only a quarter mile or so from Holetown proper and the bustle of the platinum coast. The kids loved the high speed internet, while we enjoyed breakfast on the terrace. The beach is an easy 10 minute walk away. When we come back to Barbados, there is no doubt whatsoever that we will return to the Vida Mejor.

Carlton is helpful, he will meet you and make sure you are happy. The unit is efficient. It has everything however on the whole it requires a paint job and some sprucing up. The maid service is great and it is kept clean. the security system keeps you feeling safe at night and otherwise for its off the beat and track. Carlton is there to help as you need him. The pool is maintained early in the morning and Carlton is doing his best to keep cost down and keep you comfortable. Sharing it is not a great idea as the pool is really in your private space. We asked it be just for us and Carlton was helpful again. There is air in the bedrooms but not in the main floor. The pool is a plus it could use towels for the pool use and some freshened pool chair pads as the chairs are older. If you are a family or a few looking for a decent trip at an affordable price it works! There is a locked driveway entrance and its gated up to the unit, very narrow for fitting the van in if you rent it. There are motion sensor lights close to the road and at the front door, its a bit uncomfortable at night if you are on your own. The place is right in holetown and so close to the ammenities. There is a pizza place zaccios on the beach,for take out or eat in and its a stones throw away. RENT a CAR is what we suggest as I would never walk near the unit at night. We did leave the keys in the van one day and during the day someone came to tell us. We were shocked! The people are so nice and friendlJust grillin is cheap and so good a barbecque style restaurant about 5 mins away. There are loads of expensibe restaurants and two large grocery shops one close by and one about 10 mins away. Carlton has all things for you to cook with but the barbecque was a disapointment (time for a new one). The sun and the pool is there when you wish when you like it! Consider this villa if it suits your budget. Take a catamaran trip for the day they'll pick you up take you swiming and the fish are gorgeous!

This was our third visit to Vida Mejor, and proved to be just as wonderful as our previous stays. The Owner, Carlton is a lovely guy (I am sure he won't mind me saying that), who is as helpful, informative friendly as it gets. The Villa itself is beautifully furnished with 2 double bedrooms, both en-suite, and with air-con in both. Wide sweeping lounge leads into outside patio area and pool. Wow!!!! A pleasant 7 minute walk will get you to the stunning sea and your first rum punch!Look out for the green monkeys on your way there, they are fantastic! A car can be hired fairly cheaply if you want to get out and about and explore the island as we always do! Lots of top restaurants, Lonestar, the Cliff, Daphnes, Tides, Sandy lane are just a short cab ride away. The supermarket is about 15 mins walk away, but we always either used the car or got a cheap cab fare back with the food. Carlton will even stock the fridge for you prior to arrival if you give him your orders! More beers please! All in all, a fabulous place to stay, highly recommended, and we look forward to our 4th trip back there in the not too distant future! Cheers Carlton!!!!!

We have stayed in this villa a couple of times and would definitely recommend it. The private pool and pool area is fantastic and always well-maintained. The villa is ideal and located only a couple of minutes from the centre of Holetown. The service from Carlton is excellent - the villa has everything you need for a holiday and great for kids too. Free internet is an added bonus! Maid service is provided too which is excellent. Only thing to watch out for are the mosquitos in the evening! An excellent villa, in a great location with fantastic, attentive service from Carlton.
