About Hugh or Dorothy

The owners took great care in choosing the perfect location for the villa - a quaint area on the north-west coast of the island so as to experience the Caribbean Sea, but also to experience the quiet relaxed Barbadian life. The proximity to the beach and the rhythmic sounds of the ocean led them to choose the name ‘Sea Symphony’ strongly influenced by their renowned musical background.

Hugh or Dorothy purchased this villa in 1995

Why Hugh or Dorothy chose Checker Hall

The excitement of activity is a stone’s throw away and with numerous choices including golfing, water sports, fine dining, shopping and a variety of attractions in Speightstown and Holetown. For the more adventurous, the East coast is also nearby for those who want to experience the rugged terrain and the Atlantic Ocean, which is good for surfing and is a regular stop for international surfing.

What makes this villa unique

A spectacular view of the ocean and also individual views of the ocean from all rooms.

Sunsets are varied and very colourful.

Many areas to sit and relax in a tranquil, peaceful atmosphere, away from the hustle and bustle.

Indoor and outdoor dining choices.

Still stay in touch with your available complimentary high speed WIFi.

Daily staff - chef, housekeeper, laundress, pool attendant - enjoy full relaxation with no household chores to worry about.

Proximity and easy access to the natural beach which is good for snorkeling.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Great place to spend quality time with friends and family

  • 5 of 5

The villa is perfect for a large group. It's walkable to a small beach area. And we found lots to do a short cab drive away, Dorothy is amazingly helpful and the staff is superb! We truly enjoyed ourselves!

HOT in the summer

  • 4 of 5

The staff were fantastic and the villa beautiful. Unless you are in the bedrooms, the villa is extremely hot in the summer time. Only the bedrooms have AC units. You have to walk across the street and down the hill to reach the small beach. A car is a must, especially since you will have to purchase your own food for daily consumption.

Not a beachfront villa!

  • 3 of 5

The house is wonderful, but if you are looking for a beachfront villa this is not it! the staff and the pool were nice, but a car is definitely needed to enjoy the beaches of Barbados. We thoroughly enjoyed the catamaran ride, swimming with the turtles, the Animal Flower Cave (the view is breathtaking), the Wildlife Preserve and scuba diving.

Can't wait to return

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at the villa twice and the condo on the hill once. I can't wait to return this year. Missed last year but won't miss it again. The staff are so friendly, the weather is perfect, the villa is beautifully maintained and the food is prepared to everyone's particular tastes. Grocery shopping is an experience and easy, especially, the fresh fish from the locals. Hugh and Dorothy are excellent hosts and I look forward to seeing them in the future.
