The villa is still to the very high standard we love and expected, with some added improvements - we particularly loved the introduction of the gas barbeque, which cooked our fresh fish from the local fish market to perfection! The collection and drop off service to the airport makes arriving and leaving hassle free. Jayne the housekeeper did a fantastic job of looking after us and the villa without any intrusion. We have visited Barbados on a number of occassions so deem ourselves self sufficient but knew Floyd and Jacqueline were always on hand if we needed anything. The villa is in a perfect location for visiting the best beaches on the island, although Gibbs is still our favourite. Car hire isn't necessary as the bus stop at the bottom of the road will take you as far as Bridgetown one way and Speightstown the other. Mullins beach bar is great for lunch and only a 10 minutes walk from GGV. For a great night out with a local feel. Take a trip to Chris's Place at the top of the road (Rock Dundo) for traditional ribs and rum! GGV holds a special place in our heart so we will be returning without any hesitation. PS. Make sure you purchase the fast track option through the airport from Maria. It is worth every penny and will save your hours waiting in line to get through imigration!

I've been to Barbados many times but this was my first time at Ridgecot House. I couldn't have chosen a better place and the memories will stay with me forever. From 1st sight of this gorgeous villa we had the best holiday ever. Esther greeted us at the door and we have so many happy memories of her. She became our special guest everyday and we loved to get her to sit down with us, have some lunch and tell us stories of her family and the island. We bought some food for our last evening and she cooked us a great, traditional Bajan meal. We shared some of the meal with Kevin the gardener who, like Esther, was a treasure and a lovely man. He tended the garden well and kept it lovely, even planting cuttings to keep it looking beautiful. We loved the pool and the terrace so much that we hardly left. and we also had some fun on the swing with some great pictures as forever memories The Fairmont Beach Club was an added bonus. So close and great for sunsets. The house itself is stunning and has everything you need. The bus stops outside so you can easily get to anywhere on the island I cant say enough but i will say that we are planning to come back soon. Sue, Rach and Lynn xxx

A short hop to Mullins bar a must on Sunday afternoon and Bombas bar / restaurant great food and atmosphere. Weston fish market just down the road fresh fish straight off the boats and so reasonable, try the Mahi Mahi. Thank you Pat.
