A lovely relaxing Christmas holiday - perfect for a small family. Comfy villa in good complex with lovely pool and very easy access to glorious beach. Staff were helpful and friendly and managed basic cooking and housekeeping well. Super restaurants nearby and well sited on West coast to maximize enjoying all the island has to offer.

This was our second time here and it was just as amazing as the first time! We had so much fun and have always enjoyed staying at Gingerbread!

The Miles Family

It is certainly in our top places to be, to go to and to stay. We've loved every minute from breakfast, lunch and dinner with a view to the lovely restaurants we ate at. We cannot thank Cheryl, Jessica, John and Linn enough. We will be back soon! It is always so lovely to return to our little Gingerbread!

The Greenwood & Grugulis Party

Fabulous location, amazing beach and thank you Cheryl and Felicia - amazing.

The Phillips

Visiting Barbados was the perfect vacation. The people there were friendly and yet left you alone. They were not hounding you constantly to buy things. Gingerbread villa was way bigger than what we needed for 2 people, but we loved every inch of it and enjoyed the plunge pools especially and the sun deck up top. We spent our mornings relaxing at the pool and beach and our afternoons exploring the island. Cheryl, the cook, was marvelous. She cooked exactly what we wanted and even tweaked her recipe when she found out our likes and dislikes. Jessica, the housekeeper, kept things neat and tidy and having our laundry done was such a blessing. We had none to do upon our return home. The views and the beach on this property were unmatched. I cannot remember a time when I felt so refreshed just floating in the calm waters anywhere else. It was clear and breathtaking. We are already trying to figure out when we can return and bring our children. This was the best vacation we have ever had.

The Sagarra Party

We really enjoyed our stay. It was relaxing & we enjoyed the house and beach. Cheryl was awesome with her great cooking. Always attentive and flexible with our plans. Jessica thank you for the cleanliness.

Thank you.

The d'Entremont

Cheryl & Jessica were the best!!

The Cunningham Family

Overall a great vacation. Property was amazing and staff attention to detail second to none. Will definitely be back!

The Predescu Party

Capturing the best of Barbados in one brief visit is no easy feat. But it was made possible thanks to this beautiful setting and the collective efforts of Jessica and Cheryl. Bravo ladies! Cheryl's cooking, made with soul and love. Jessica's attention to detail and mindful approach - both unmatched. An absolute pleasure. Bajan sunsets or bust! Thank you!

The Roberts

Lovely holiday. Very relaxing, great food and perfect weather. We even saw the turtles hatching on the beach.

The Rogers Family

Great stay, perfect location and made to feel at home by Cheryl & Jessica. The food surpassed expectation. Thank you.

The Thornton Family

Great trip Cheryl and Jessica made us feel at home. Try The Cliff and Lone Star restaurants. Worth every penny.

The Thomas Party

Jessica and Cheryl truly made our vacation. The meals were outstanding and such a treat to have someone cook for our family. To have our laundry and villa cleaned for us daily was also such a wonderful treat. We had planned to go out most nights but decided to enjoy our home cooked meals and gorgeous setting. There was no need to venture out when we had everything right at home :) Hope to be back!!

The Powell Party

The staff Cheryl and Jessica are superb. Wonderful location, wonderful food. Very happy.

The Allen Party

Cheryl and Jessica were lovely. We could really get used to having our laundry done. Nothing was too much trouble and Cheryl's banana bread was amazing! All catering for us was very good and I have taken a couple of recipes to try. Loved the colors, decor and flowers. Nice spot. We will return.

The Baileys
