We just finished our trip to
We just finished our trip to Grendon House While fresh in my mind - I want to share some feedback of the house, the experience and Barbados in general - as this was our first trip here. Overall - great trip. great place, would recommend it. First - Barbados: We have visited a lot of the Caribbean. Barbados rates very high on the list as a place to visit. The people are great. They get tourism is key to their success. Everyone speaks english. The infrastructure of the island is strong - roads, internet, power, water (drinkable). Staying on the West Coast - we never had any concerns of safety. We rented a car - and found driving (with a GPS) to be a great way to get around - and is 100% required. Supermarket - The supermarket down the road (Massy) is a fully stocked Supermarket like you would find in the UK, US or Canada. It is about 1.4 miles away from the hotel. It is EXPENSIVE compared to the US. Figure everything is at least 2x what you would pay in the US (in USD), and in some cases 4x. So, be prepared for that. They have the brands you will know - but you will pay. Some fresh items did run out. Welcome to an island. We brought some essentials from home, and knowing this - would have brought more. An extra checked bag worth of stuff would easily pay for itself in a moment. Grendon House Location: Grendon house is on a lane between the 'highway' and the Sandy Lane Resort. It is about 1 mile from the Country Club Course and about a mile to the Beach. It sits right off the 5th hole of the Old 9 course - but it does have a wall / landscaping to provide separation. Both are walkable - and parking is available at both locations -as well as the Old 9 course. There is nothing else closer. The house is a part of the Sandy Lane Villas - but this does not give full access to the resort. You can book golf (at a discount) and dine - but you do not have the rights to the resort pool or other amenities (Gym). There is an owners beach club - which was a good option and never that busy when we were there. The house is in a very private location. It is behind a gate and is very secure. The only unexpected visitors we had were a group of monkeys that came by twice to visit. The house: The house is huge and has so many great covered seating locations and dining locations - with just awesome indoor / outdoor spaces. Everyone can find their own space to sit and read, play cards, talk, drink,.... Due to this unique (and awesome) layout - the AC is limited to the bedrooms and a TV room. This never was an issue for us. 5th Bedroom. The 5th bedroom is on other side of the the kitchen - and from the layout was probably designed originally as the Staff Quarters. Be mindful of that if you need the 5th room. There are some tiny, biting bugs. Windows and doors in the rooms are opened during the day. There is a 'Vape' mat under the beds that we figured out several days into the trip. I replaced the mat - and that seemed to keep the bugs away. Play it safe and bring some spray (like Off) and some anti-itch in case you need it. Mats are in the night stand in the rooms. Also - only bar soap is provided. Any other showering things you need (Shampoo,...) bring or you will need to get from the store. House Staff. They are great. A team of 3 - they were there when we needed them. They have been with the house a long time - and they know how to run the place. They will not get in your way - and will take care of everything you need at the house. The only key thing that John (cook) needs is food to cook with. We made several runs to the store and fish market (Fish, Fish and More Fish) to get provisions. He will tell you what he needs - and is creative to use what you have provided and what you like. Food was always great and a lot of it. He has an unlimited menu of options - and we let him make whatever he wanted with what we provided. Dining out. Just when you thought the supermarket was expensive - wait until you try to eat out. Simply - we did not do it (beyond a run for the kids to the new Burger King (next to Massy) and the Chefette for Pizza). John took care of us - and cooked up an awesome selection of meals. If you do want to go out - just be prepared. As an example - the Country Club Golf course lunch menu has Fish and Chips entree for about $50 USD. Currency: Every place takes credit cards, and every place took USD. If you use USD, you will get change in local currency. ATMs are available. Other things to do: Catamaran tour - Calabaza - great. Lots to eat and drink. Deep see fishing - Mom's Therapy - Hard core fishing boat, no frill. Bring drinks. Golf - Old 9 at Sandy Lane - good, fun, 1/2 of an 18 - a good 'value' compared to Country Club 9 and a fun course. Fish, Fish and More Fish - see Melissa for fresh fish for John to cook, just down the road St Nicholas Abbey - skip it - but drive by to see the views on the way to Bathsheba at Cherry Tree Hill

Best Villa on Sandy Lane!
This is our third visit to beautiful Grendon House. We were here for Christmas and New Year with family and back again with friends for a week in March. We have stayed in many Barabdos villas and this is by far our favourite. The house is absolutely stunning - beautifully decorated and styled with many areas to eat and sit out to enjoy the gorgeous gardens and pool area. The staff are wonderful. Always cheerful and friendly - wonderful meals were served under the gazebo at lunch time and under the stars by the pool at night. Our best memories are of evenings sitting out around the big round table enjoying the cool evening breezes in the palm trees and Johns wonderful cooking. Having the Sandy Lane owners club beach 2 mins away was perfect. We tried other beaches but kept returning to "our own" one. Highly recommend this fabulous villa.

What an amazing vacation my extended family had at Grendon House. There were 9 of us - ages 60+ to 7, and all ages enjoyed the vacation home for a week-long holiday. We couldn't have asked for more. From the ever-attentive house staff (Nancy made us some fantastic traditional Bajan dishes!) to the calm and relaxing pool to the cool and comfortable sitting rooms and bedrooms, we enjoyed it all. The photos do not do the house true justice! If rest and relaxation is what you are after, Grendon House is the place. Some days we barely left the house, but when we did venture out in the rental cars, we found grocery shopping and stores nearby. The house manager helped us with directions to drive into town, and we visited the caves and other local attractions. Overall, it was a great holiday. Staying at Grendon House definitely elevated our expectations for future vacation villas!
Wow! Couldn't Ask for More!

Can't wait to come back next year
It's our last morning and I don't want to leave! Grendon House has been heaven. By far the nicest villa we have ever rented. We loved the beautiful tropical gardens - ginger lilies, frangipani and lobster claws. The many relaxing places to sit and read or chat. The games room for epic table tennis tournaments, the bar for making up tropical cocktails using fresh coconuts from the garden. The Staff - Nancy your cooking is superb. Amaria and Lorraine were so cheerful and easy to be around. Nothing was too much trouble. We love the beach - our early morning swim today will stay with me forever. the beach was so tranquil and perfect. We also loved Holders' Farmers market on Sunday morning, with live music and great organic food and souvenirs. I can't wait to come back next year!

This place is simply beautiful and like paradise. It was a great place to take our large and loud family. We could have great family bonding time and not bother the neighbors. The food was wonderful and the staff very attentive. We loved sipping cocktails by our own private pool and having a different table to eat every meal. This house is relaxing and a great getaway from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. We all enjoyed our stay and only wished it could have lasted longer. Best wishes.

Amaria, John, Rodney & Lorrraine welcomed our two families with open arms and Bajan hospitality. What a delight to have a personal chef, who cooked with love and accommodated our dietary requests. John's curry and barbeque meals beat any restaurant experience. Rodney was both attentive and professional. We enjoyed getting to know him and sharing stories. Lorraine was an excellent asset to the team. What a gift to have clean, fresh laundry daily! What can we say about the wonderful Amaria! Her warm smile and contagious laughter brought joy to the day. She was committed to making our stay enjoyable and carefree. Grendon House is a beautiful, well-appointed retreat for our party of 8. We Would highly recommend Grendon House to our friends.
