Ridgecot House was absolutely perfect. From the initial booking, Tina was amazing to deal with. She was prompt with her responses, offered to arrange travel arrangements on the island (we hired a car- definitely recommend if you want to do some exploring) and even arranged to have groceries waiting for us when we arrived. The property itself was even more wonderful than the photos. Esther was so friendly and kept the place spotless. Then, of course, there is the BEACH. We spent every day at the amazing beach, which is right across the street. Beautiful crystal clear blue waters were just what we needed after a long winter. There are lots of great restaurant options in the area (JuJu's and Lonestar are an easy walk on the beach, the Tides and the Beach House are a mile away in Holetown...and THE CLIFF! Expensive, but worth the splurge!). We also spend a couple nights relaxing on the wonderful patio (takeout from Just Grillin) and enjoying the pool. Already talking about when we can go back!

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.
