A lovely, relaxing retreat away from the busy tourist areas but easily within 10 to 20 minutes drive of all the major attractions on the island. The Villa has the added advantage of a welcoming pool; a great place to escape the heat. A car is essential.

We loved our stay at Ridgecot, It was very spacious and comfortable and we felt at home from day one. The kitchen was very well equipped. We loved getting up each morning and sitting around the large marble table on the terrace watching the various wildlife. We also got plenty of use out of the swimming pool. We used the bbq a couple of times as it made a nice change from getting ready to go out for a meal. Tina the owner was happy to answer all our questions prior to our stay and whilst we were in the villa Esther the maid and Barbara who manages the property were available to provide answers. We didn't bother hiring a car as we found the buses frequent and cheap to use. Within walking distant we ate a couple of times at Ju Jus Beach Bar and Lone Star Restaurant and would recommend both. We also caught buses to Holetown, Speightstown, Oistins and Mullins Beach for food/drinks in the evening and found the quality was very good. Also went by bus to Bathsheba (via Speightstown) just to see the contrast of coastlines worth a visit but pleased we choose the West Coast to stay. Booked a fabulous catamaran trip online through Silver Moon a 5 hour trip with only 12 passengers we were so well looked after with excellent food and drink. We don't usually got back to a holiday location twice but I would love one day to return to Barbados and would happily look at renting this villa again. I would also recommend the villa to a friend or relative. Thank you Tina for letting your home in Barbados feel like it was our home for 2 weeks.
