Stunning villa, fabulous location and great staff

5 of 5
I booked this villa with my 2 friends for my big birthday holiday. 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

Great place to stay

5 of 5
Very well furnished apartment, Pat is very helpful and easy to deal with, having maid service included twice a week by Kim was great, Rachel the manager was very helpful, nice safe bathing beach at the bottom of the road. 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.

Exceptional Villa

5 of 5
We have recently returned from our second visit to Gibbs Glade Villa -last year it was fantastic but this year it is exceptional. The improvements in less than a year have made an tremendous impact to this villa, from the virtually quiet air con in bedroom (if it wasn't for the perfect cool temperature I wasn't certain it was on!) to the fans on the terrace circulating air, and coded gate entry system. I immediately noticed the interior of the villa had been upscaled ,with my wife explaining to me the curtains, rugs, upholstery and kitchen marble counter top had been replaced, but the biggest impact on me was the rear terrace and studio. The terrace is now complete with a large table, rugs, wall art and buddha figure. Also housed is a large gas barbecue and prep area -we spent many hours on the terrace it's the perfect place from the moment you wake. We enjoyed many meals on the terrace prepared in the kitchen (had everything needed) and barbeque, and a good place to relax and escape the midday sun but still be with the sun worshippers (my wife). The studio was also well used as it was equipped with exercise bike and rowing machine , all easy to use with easy programming features, a good way to start the New Years resolution of getting fitter! It also has a large curved screen tv with many chanels. Mullins beach (check out on webcab) and bar a few minutes walk away, good food and a great place to enjoy sundowners, they have music on Sundays great fun. We often went for early swims at Gibbs beach- more quiet and peaceful about 5mins away.The level of service as mentioned in the title is exceptional - Maria arranged our fast track through customs on arrival in Barbados, then we where met outside the airport by Floyd the friendly Villa manager who took us to the Villa (this is included in rental!) and made suggestions for places to see during our trip. A rental car was at the villa ready for us - I filled in car rental details whilst enjoying a cold drink on terrace, simple. Jayne the perfect house keeper was also at the villa to greet us. Its the easiest transition into a holiday I have had. Jackie , Floyd and Jayne could not have been kinder or more helpful throughout our stay, they all worked well at keeping the villa spotless and bringing cheerful smiles, they are there to help at any time. Exceptional villa with service to match.
