This was our first time to Barbados, we planned it in exceptional detail, taking with us our 3 small children plus grandparents too. Booking somewhere to stay to suit all the needs at first proved quite difficult that was until we found the Galena!! On arrival, quite late in the evening, we were greeted by the marvellous Maxine and the native Natasha who kept the house very clean, looked after the clothes and maintained a lovely environment in which to enjoy and relax. Maxine’s cooking was exceptional, I tasted dishes that were fresh, enjoyable, easy on the palate and just damn right delightful. She was always such a pleasant dynamic to be around. I often would ask how she had created such dishes only to then be shown and talked through such dish. I only hope I can recreate them to such an amazing , delicious standard.
The house itself was simply perfect ! Just sufficient room for 8 of us. The location is peaceful and has the most amazing views. There is plenty of room to relax and just do and be yourself.
I can truly recommend this place , I just worry that after too many exceptional reviews we will not be able to book back in but if you are considering the house, you will not be disappointed!!
It's always a challenge taking the extended family on a holiday. Everyone has different tastes and ideas. This proved the perfect solution for everyone. Maxine and Tasha were the icing on top of the cake. We've never had a chef or a housekeeper on previous trips, and I wasn't sure how it would work. It was fantastic. Maxine sat down with us at the start of the week, and we discussed what sort of food we would like, then we did a trip to the supermarket armed with a shopping list, and Maxine picked up things like fish etc. Her cooking was delicious, and presentation fantastic. Tasha kept the Villa spotless all week, and all our laundry was taken care of. These 2 ladies make all the difference in ensuring it's a relaxing break, not just a week in a fantastic location with lovely views.
Look out for the monkeys popping in to help themselves to the mangoes from the trees.
Car recommended if you plan to get out and about at all.
