Why Michael Rowan chose Derricks
Alverton The 2 & 3 Bedroom Villas are the closest properties to the water edge. Built on the beach with french doors opening onto the veranda, ideal for alfresco dining. Stunning views of the sunset and sunrise of the caribean. The veranda via the courtyard garden is 15 metres to the gate that opens directly onto the beach. Alverton The Cottage has a balcony which is 3 metres to the beach, with a coral stone decked area, ideal for alfresco dining. The Studio faces the beach road and has use of the courtyard garden.
What makes this Villa unique
Situated on a white sandy beach that stretches for miles in either direction. It's ideal for all water sports or simply basking in the sunshine. The courtyard garden has a barbeque, shower and beach chairs and towels. It is also an ideal location to view the turtles hatching close by.

We booked this property because we wanted something "beachfront" and it is but Wow! from the minute we stepped inside we were blown away! The pictures don't do it justice at all. Not only is is beautifully ans tastefully decorated, it is immaculately clean as well! Elaine goes out of her way to make sure you have everything you need to make it a perfect stay and Shirley not only keeps the place clean, but she is a fantastic cook and great value for money! Barry the gardener brought us delicious mango's, fresh coconut water and even a bread fruit which he was going to roast on the beach for us but we ran out of time :(
The supermarket (Jordans) is across the road, the bus stop is 10 yards away, there is a restaurant and beach bar, Il Tempio ( happy hour, 2 for 1 from 4-6) about 50 yards away, what more could you ask for?
Answer = to never have to leave
This was our 5th time in Barbados and have rented every time, but this property is worth every single penny. It is a more "local" than "tourist" area yet caters for everything a tourist could want. I am sitting here on the veranda watching the morning tide crashing on the beach (25 yards away), hummingbirds in the trees feeling very sad to have to leave. Thank you Elaine & Michael for giving us the opportunity to live a dream in your beautiful house. I will recommend to anyone.....
Beautiful beach for snorkeling and swimming.
Good value for the money.
We had an amazing 12-day vacation here in Fitts Village. It was a perfect choice for our family of four: on the beach, excellent layout, plenty of outdoor space, and right on the bus route. We spent a lot of time in the water, swimming and snorkeling in front of the house. The only negative for us was that the house is located on a busy (and noisy) street, but we got used to it after a while. We had hoped to take long walks, but that proved a bit dangerous on the street, and you can go only so far on the beach because of the many coves. We ran the fan/air-con at night to cover the sound of the nighttime traffic. Also, there are only a few restaurants within walking distance, so we mostly cooked at home and took the bus into either Holetown or Bridgetown when we wanted to go out to eat. We love to cook as a family, so being across the street from Jordan's Market was a definite plus! We went diving with The Dive Shop Ltd. They offer free pick-up and drop-off, and were a true pleasure to dive with. The diving was superb, much better than we had anticipated. All in all, it was a lovely vacation!
Thank you for your review. We are delighted that you had an Amazing Vacation at The Alverton. As it was between Christmas and New Year Season, the whole Island was Celebrating this, and indeed All Guests and Locals. Please do accept my deep apology if the noise has disturbed you. I can assure you that the location of the Alverton is definitely the Most Quiet Area in the Whole of the Barbados Island. The most tranquil times to book is Outside the Christmas and New Year Season.
We are very pleased that you had enjoyed Great Water Sports Activities during your stay at The Alverton. Indeed our Beachfront is one of the few areas in the island which boasts of pure sand along the Beach and protected Coral Reefs are explored by Visitors for Snorkelling.
All of Us at the family-run The Alverton will be looking forward to your return to the Alverton. We thank you for your Stay and Very Best Wishes to You and Your Family for the New Year!
The Best Choice I Have Ever Made
The 60+ Club
Having saved up the pennies for a few years to celebrate my 60th birthday, I decided to take the family away for a good holiday, rather than spend it all on a night of boozing and dancing.
I had wanted to go to Barbados for some years and looked for a place that we could call our own. We selected Alverton Villas as we wanted somewhere close to the beach. Well, if you got any closer you would be on a boat! It is steps away from the sea and the beach is perfect. I cannot recommend this collection of villas highly enough to anyone looking for a perfect vacation getaway.
We rented all the villas for a month and it was one of the best decisions I have ever made. They were all spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Elaine and Shirley looked after us so well they almost ended up with squatters. Shirley even cooked for us a few times while we were there, for a very reasonable agreed fee, to save us having to do it ourselves. Real Barbadian food!
We often went swimming with the turtles that tend to frequent the sea outside the villas and with the crystal clear waters it was a real experience.
We really did not want to leave and with any luck the wife and I will be going back next year.
Many thanks for your kind words.
Michael & Elaine

Alverton Apartments are situated on a white sandy beach in Fitts Village, St James and are very well situated for all local amenities. For anyone not wishing to hire a car, local transport is very frequent and inexpensive. Watersports operate all along the coastline and can easily be arranged. There is a supermarket one minute from the apartments in a complex which also has a doctors surgery and pharmacy if needed. Holetown is situated 2 miles north of Alverton and this very vibrant pretty town has many popular restaurants and good shopping facilities. The town has a very long history being the site where the first settlers landed and the town has grown over the years to be a very popular destination for tourists and locals alike. Bridgetown is 3 miles south of Alverton and has a large number of shopping areas and is worth the visit just to browse and soak in the history of this very old Caribbean city. Speightstown, a charming old Bajan town, is 7 miles north of Alverton.
