Spacious property - good value and good base for exploring
From my initial enquiry to (reluctantly) leaving the property everything was perfect. The owner Neil and Housekeeper Jackie are quick to respond to any questions and will do anything they can do to make your stay a pleasant one.
We felt the house was more spacious than it appears on the photographs.
A group of six of us inc. two teenagers (aged 13) stayed for two weeks over Christmas 2019. Some were regular visitors to the island.
A car is required otherwise you have to walk up a hill with your shopping. But being at the top of a hill gives you great sea views. The neighbours are wonderful - very friendly.
If you like roosters, chickens, parrots, fire flies, monkeys and more then you will love this place, as they all visit the garden. We loved them all !
The location is great for those who want to visit the West Coast and the South Coast as it is about a 20/30 mins drive to the South coast and the same up to Speightstown on the West Coast, less to Holetown and just a 5/10 min drive to the Cliff/ Sandy Lane.
On the days you want to use the bus (which are great fun and currently just $3.5 BDS pp anywhere )- they are plentiful at the bottom of the hill / the main road (5 mins walk).
Jordans supermarket is just round the corner - great staff and variety/prices but we found the shuttle service unreliable.
We used the local Italian Il Tempio as our 'local' and watched many a beautiful sunset there - enjoying happy hour 4pm till 6/7pm. But there are other places a short drive or a medium walk away inc. Wendy's sports bar and La Cabane.
We all felt it was good value for money and we would stay here again.
Thanks for posting a review Louise. We are so pleased that Hummingbird House lived up to your expectations and that you and your family had a great holiday....... There's nothing quite like Barbados at Christmas.
All the best for 2020.
Neil & Family
"It was everything that we expected & then some"
Hummingbird House’ was everything that we expected and then some. Jackie met us with a big warm welcome and a much appreciated Banks beer. She was very attentive and answered all of our questions. Your home was well equipped with everything one would need on holiday. Every small detail was taken care of. We so enjoyed our daily meals dining ‘ al fresco ‘ and cooking up a storm in the lovely kitchen. We managed to cook fish almost every day and highly recommend the Paynes Bay fish market for purchasing freshly caught fish. Melissa there is a gem and can filet fish expertly! Do see her next time you’re there. You won’t regret it.
The swimming pool was greatly appreciated after a day out touring around and for our morning coffee. The yard was lovely and we all loved the chickens coming round for their daily strut. Their morning wake up call was a delight! The house was bright and airy and always had a breeze flowing through so a/c was not necessary in the common area. It was needed at night for sleeping though. It was handy having a washing machine there and the clothesline for drying bathing suits.
Our family of five found the house very spacious and comfortable. The bedrooms had plenty of hangers in the closets and towels were plentiful. Linda, the house cleaner did a fab job of washing and changing the bed linens. The grounds keeper and pool man did a great job as well.
We would definitely recommend your property to friends or family wishing to spend some time in beautiful Barbados. Everything was superb and can’t fault it for anything. Thank you again Neil for sharing your lovely property with our family.

Treat to come home to or spend a lazy day poolside
# 14 Hummingbird Lane in Prospect was the perfect location for us to experience the beautiful West Coast of Barbados while spending time with the locals - check out Wendy’s Sports Bar for an inexpensive and authentic experience or La Cabane for an excellent dinner or sunset cocktail in a stunning beach side location (Batts Rock) The villa met and exceeded our expectations - It was an easy 5 to 10 minute walk to access the beaches or buses from right at the bottom of the hill - the beaches are quiet but with just the right amount of activity - we snorkeled with the turtles, took a paddle board lesson and lounged under the palm trees. There’s lots to do locally but we also took advantage of the many activities Barbados has to offer - Oistin’s Friday night fish fry - catamaran trips (2 with El Tigre) local bus trips to check out St Lawrence Gap to the south and Holetown to the North.
The villa was a treat to come home to or to spend a lazy day poolside - We were six adults who appreciated the 3 bed/3 bath set up - We found there was lots of room to sit poolside,either sun or shade, the kitchen had everything we needed for meal prep - fresh fish from the Payne’s Bay fish market - Having Jordan’s supermarket close by meant we could face the climb up the hill with a few groceries at a time - We pushed ourselves to walk it ( it’s not really that bad) William, a local taxi driver and guide gave us a memorable tour of the Island; well worth it ! The covered patio gave us good views of the many monkeys who were our morning visitors and the hummingbirds who darted freely about the yard. We were lucky enough to spot a green parrot and our friends happened upon a turtle release early one morning on the beach at Fitts Village.
The staff were great - Jackie meeting us on arrival, Linda the cleaner coming in to change beds and clean and the gardener/pool person who came early in the morning. We would definitely recommend the villa and will return !
The villa is fabulous
"Our party of 4 adults stayed at Hummingbird House for 11 nights in January 2019. The villa is fabulous and very spacious internally, with one bedroom on the ground floor and two further bedrooms upstairs, with air conditioning / ceiling fans throughout. It also has a really lovely large garden area complete with sun loungers / table and chairs etc, which the house wi-fi works fine in: including its own swimming pool; children's play area and gas barbecue. The villa is ideally situated for visiting Barbados' beautiful west coast beeches and exclusive restaurants.
Upon arrival we were greeted by Jackie who was most helpful having patiently waited for us to arrive late in the evening. After a long journey from the UK and arriving on a Sunday night preceding a bank holiday, we were extremely grateful to her for having purchased all of the provisions that we had requested prior to our trip. Jackie was also very knowledgeable about the local area and kindly kept in touch with us during our stay to ensure we were having a great time and wanted for nothing.
During our stay we also saw the pool attendant on a number of occasions who kept the pool very clean; the gardener who kept the garden looking very nice; and Linda who came halfway through our stay to do a full house clean.
In summary, I would say this is a fabulous property and would thoroughly recommend to anyone who is looking to stay in the area to consider it. We simply could not fault it and it afforded us the significant advantage over a hotel of eating in on a few occasions rather than continuously eating out, the latter of which can be expensive on the west coast. If we ourselves return to Barbados in the future, we would be delighted to stay at this villa once again."
Would definitely stay at Hummingbird again!!
We have just had a fantastic holiday and the villa was absolutely perfect. If we returned to Barbados we would definitely look at staying at Hummingbird again. The location was very quiet and peaceful with lovely sea views. The pool was great as were the sun beds with all beach/pool towels provided. The use of WIFI was also brilliant and kept the teenagers occupied as they don’t go anywhere without their phone. Plenty of cooking facilities and cutlery if we decided to eat in. Overall an excellent holiday villa with everything we needed. Thanks for everything Claire, Craig and Family
Beautiful location in Barbados
Hi Neil Hummingbird Villa provided us with a beautiful location in Barbados! This home was very clean and well equipped. The gardens were lush and inviting and we enjoyed the veranda every night. The pool was wonderful and always kept clean. The perimeter of the yard a mixture of bougainvillea and palms provided privacy for the pool area. Much to the delight of our grand children the Monkeys came to visit often and the roosters nearby put on a show daily. The garden also had a play area for the children. The kitchen was very well-equipped. The laundry was very handy also. 3 full bathrooms so every room enjoys it’s own bathroom. We previously rented on the beach - It was twice the price, half the size, and the noise from the ocean highway traffic created quite a racket Hummingbird is located on a dead-end street - no traffic and no noise - wonderful The Villa support staff were very friendly and helpful and Jackie was there to greet us upon our arrival. Jackie also kept in contact to ensure everything was going smoothly. Conveniently located close to the beach (10 minute walk or 2 minute drive and easy free parking) and Jordan’s supermarket. The Villa is close to Bridgetown and to Holetown. Local buses are on the same road as the beach and Jordan's. Many good restaurants within a couple of miles at most. Highly recommended and we will be returning. Highest regards, Michael & Edith London, Ontario. Canada
