About Dr Charles & Mrs Charlotte Wetton
Owners Charles Wetton - Doctor Charlotte Wetton Surveyor speak English
Dr Charles & Mrs Charlotte Wetton purchased this Villa in 2015
Why Dr Charles & Mrs Charlotte Wetton chose Bakers Woods
This is a unique property on the Island . The gardens and pool are second to none and maintained to a very high standard . The house is very quiet and far from noisy roads in a peaceful neighbourhood, but with easy access to the beach and local towns . Charlotte was particularly drawn to this house as she spent 8 happy years living 1 mile down the road at Gibbs with here late parents in the 1980's.
What makes this Villa unique
The house is spacious with high ceilings, terracotta & stone floors and external wooden shutters. It was redecorated in 2017. The infinity pool is always a lovely temperature with panoramic sea views. There is always a refreshing light breeze which keeps you cool . The front of the property has electric gates with a wall around the property which is secure . The house is situated in a quiet family neighbourhood, with other large houses , with very little noise. We are a mile from the noisy coast road and the road to the house leads only to other neighbouring houses with almost no traffic . The only noise disturbance you will hear is a neighbour mowing or striming in their garden or doing some D-I-Y in the house ! You can take a walk or go jogging and nobody bothers you. This house is set in a very peaceful location surrounded by its own garden , great for rest and relaxation , yet very close to Mullins and Gibbs beach . Unusually for Barbados ,Gibbs beach has no hotels on it and the beach is often deserted and therefore very peaceful.

Resort style private home with all the amenities.
Beautiful home, clean, spacious and very comfortable for our family. Pool and view was 5 star and landscaping amazing. We felt very secure and Harry, the manager, was wonderful. Our stay was made special by being in this lovely house.
Idyllic, wonderfully secluded villa with fabulous sea views
A superb house, very well equipped, in a beautiful setting. We loved it so much the first time that we came back for a second stay!
Better than the photo’s!
We just returned from 10 amazing days in Barbados. We wanted to thank you for sharing your beautiful home with our family.
We truly enjoyed our time at Apples House - it really is a spectacular home and an amazing location - the view is incredible!
Bibi took good care of things and was great with our kids. Harry met us on arrival and was really good to deal with - fortunately we didn’t need anything on his end as there were no issues with the home. It’s only a few minutes drive down to Gibbs beach (one of the quietest beaches on the west coast) and it was perfect for beach days when not relaxing poolside at Apple’s. This is our 5th trip to the island and the first time away from the beach, it was a nice change to have the space and privacy available and we spent every evening relaxing on the patio and barbecued dinner almost every night. The pool is perfect for families with a large shallow area, spa seating and a ledge around the inside to walk the perimeter if the deeper area is too deep for you to touch. Millie’s fish market on the coastal road will keep you well stocked with fresh, local fish and the new Massey supermarket in Holetown has everything else you need. If you have a car and are willing to drive 15 minutes - look for Triple D rotisserie for the best macaroni pie on the island - only open from 11-3 (excluding Sundays). Also worth checking out on Thursday -Saturday evenings is the road side food vendor on the coastal road right across from Old Trees (just south of Holetown). Thank you again for a wonderful property - we will be back!
Beautiful villa surrounded by verdant garden
My extended family spent a wonderful week at Apple's house. The kids had a ball in the pool and we grownups spent many hours relaxing on the comfortable, spacious terrace looking out on the Carribean in the distance. The pictures are absolutely true to the feel of the place. The interior is spacious and tastefully decorated. There is a vert short drive to a beautiful beach (Gibbes). It was hot and we were glad they had good AC in the bedrooms. This place is a great deal! The neighborhood is rather mundane but you will not know it when you are inside this verdant and luxurious compound.
Breathtaking views, amazingly wonderful home
Our group of 2 couples celebrating each of our wedding anniversaries chose this home based on the views and pool and it was even better in person!!! We spent alot of time relaxing on the patio and enjoying the pool and view. Had a movie night in the comfy living room and enjoyed being able to cook our own meals and make our own rum drinks👍� The home is wonderfully private and not too far of a drive to the store and Holetown.
We went to the St Nicholas Abbey, had an unforgettable sunset dinner cruise with Silver Moon Catamarans, and hired a chef to prepare breakfast and lunch in the home on one of many days relaxing at the house. This was a wonderful vacation and we highly recommend this home.
A beautiful home on a beautiful island with beautiful people. We will be returning!
The house is located 1 mile from the platinum coast beaches.
There are many restaurants in Holetown and along the coast. However the house is in a very quiet location with no night time traffic and it is a safe family neighbourhood. Chris' Place is down the Hill and is great for music and an inexpensive meal and drinks. Mullins beach bar down the hill.
