My wife and I stayed in a beautiful, self-catering, 1 -bedroomed cottage in Glenville Gardens for 2 and 1/2 weeks, having visited 3 years previously to view the accommodation. Our stay could not have been bettered. Sadly the holiday was cut short by the Covid -19 virus emergency and having to return to the UK. But our actual time in Glenville Gardens was blissful. The cottages , with large sheltered porches, are so comfortable, well equipped with all you require in a kitchen, tastefully decorated, well ventilated with mosquito screens on windows, roof fans and air conditioning should you need it - we rarely did. The en-suite bathroom was so clean, provisioned with 3 towels for each of us, had a superb shower and , like all the cottages , was serviced twice a week with a thorough clean and new towels. And the location, well, it was faultless in our opinion. The gardens are exquisite , and as well as being a haven for birds, provide privacy between cottages. With the beach some 200 metres down the road I never wanted the holiday to end. There are local convenience stores and many restaurants within a few minutes walk and supermarkets close too. As for our arrival , we felt welcomed from the start for there was food and milk in our refrigerator to see us through the first evening - we arrived at the site about 8.30 pm. Such thoughtfulness is typical of Barbara ( and Sugrim ) who owns and manages the cottages and who ensured we were comfortable at all times. We cannot recommend Glenville Gardens more highly and we now know why many of those who stay there do so year after year. If we have the opportunity we shall be doing the same.

I almost don’t even have the words to describe how much we love staying at Glenville Gardens. Barbara and Sugrim are the most kindhearted “hosts” I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. Their property is absolutely stunning, beautiful gardens and a lovely place to hang/relax/bbq (and wait for the monkeys to come by) when your not at the beach which is only a 5 min walk away. Deborah (the cleaning lady) is also just as friendly and does a fabulous job keeping things tidy and clean. We have stayed both in Heather and Estelle Cottages. Both have more than enough room for two couples and are just perfect for you stay. It’s also within walking distance to so many great shops and restaurants. Anyone thinking of staying here should never question it, just book and enjoy!! Can’t wait to visit again.....my favourite place on earth!! 🇧🇧 ❤️

We stayed once as a couple and I did another stay by myself a few years later. Barbara is an amazing manager and Sugrim is a fine gentle fellow. A fun part was the rule that, if you found any eggs laid by the chickens, you could keep them. The ocean is not far and there are a few stores for food, souvenirs and other items. The Glenville is like an oasis. Below your "when did you travel" spot does not go back far enough. However we are going to that place this year for two weeks.

We stayed at Glenville Gardens on our friend's recommendation and it far exceeded ally expectations. It was the cleanest place I've ever stayed in (better than a hotel), beautiful property with chickens, turtles, monkeys, super close walk to the boardwalk and restaurants like Blue Pineapple, Tiki Bar, Tapas and Blakey's and so much more! Barbara is an award-winning host! She is super responsive, helpful, incredibly kind and just wants you to have the best stay ever. They have everything you need. We couldn't recommend Glenville Gardens enough. See you soon! xo Christie, Adrian, Harper and Brighton.

Our One Bedroom Cottage with kitchenette was perfect and meticulously clean. It has all the cutlery and cooking utensils you need for your stay. You have a deck to sit and drink your coffee or a common area with lounge chairs and two gas Bar-B-Qs. Barbara and Sugrim the owners are awesome people. The cleaner Debbie and grounds keeper Claude help keep the property/residence incredibly clean. The monkeys go through the yard as well as wild Parrots land in the trees. Beach is close, just go to the end of the board walk, nice quite beach area or take the local van or bus for $1 US per person to Carlisle Bay. You should go to Carlisle Bay during your visit. There are also numerous restaurants in walking distance or go to local hotels and enjoy entertainment for free.
