About Rick Layne

What started as a childhood dream turned into reality when the owner's built this glorious Villa with all the promises to give visitors a 'home away from home

Why Rick Layne chose Saint Lawrence Gap

Located in the South Coast, Villa Riana Barbados sits in a quiet, family friendly neighborhood and is the perfect balance between relaxation and enjoying all the fun Barbados has to offer

What makes this villa unique

Barbados is the most Eastern island in the Caribbean chain. . Barbadians or Bajans (as we know ourselves) are very accommodating and enjoy good company and good friends. Travel around Barbados and stop in at any of our colourful 'Rum Shops' and meet a Bajan

Good base for our holiday

  • 4 of 5

This was our first trip to Barbados, and booking with Rick for the one bedroom villa was quick and easy. He was very flexible in adding a few extra days when one of our other bookings fell through, and was quick to answer all of our emailed questions. Rick spends the peak season in Barbados, so it was good to have him close at hand to deal directly with any questions or concerns we had after we arrived. The villa is very conveniently located to that part of the island, the neighbourhood is quiet and attractive and very safe feeling. It is an easy walk into Oistins, and about a ten minute walk to Butterfly Beach, the closest, and in our opinion, the nicest local beach. The main road is close by, so it is just a short walk to catch buses and ZR's, if you have the nerve to ride in them. We got along quite nicely without a car for the time we were there.

The villa is reasonably new, and it was well cleaned and maintained, and supplied with good towels, both pool and bath. The pool was great to have and use, even with nice beaches that close. There was a BBQ grill that we made good use of. WiFi was quick with a strong signal. The bed was quite comfortable, but we didn't really like the pillows, personal taste. Our AC worked well, but apparently not in all the units.

The complex is quite new, but it has a few issues that need tended to before they get out of hand. We pointed some things out to Rick, and he was quite receptive to hearing about them, so hopefully he tends to them before they grow into bigger problems. The dishes and cutlery need to be replaced - they are less than basic and worn, four mismatched glasses, plates, and such. The water pressure in the shower was very low, although it seemed fine in the kitchen. Providing a few more supplies would be greatly appreciated, as there was no dish cloth, dish detergent, paper towels or much else except toilet tissue and coffee filters. Rick needs to change the wording of his information as the laundry was "on site" and shared by both staff and guests, not "ensuite" as indicated in his amenities. But there was never a problem using the common washer, and there was no cost to us. We stayed for two and a half weeks, and it was a great base to travel around Barbados from.

The pros outweighed the cons. I would recommend this as a good place to stay once Rick has attended to a few of the shortcomings.
