About Mark/Shauna Gale

Hi everyone! My name is Mark Gale, myself and my family are the proud owners of Villa Bruadair. Back in 2001, I fell in love with Barbados whilst working there and decided that I would build a dream villa for others to enjoy. I aim to ensure that your stay at Bruadair is a truly amazing experience and will do everything in my power to ensure that your visit is an unforgettable one! We aim to go above and beyond in order to meet your specific requirements; many additional services can be arranged to make your experience as unique and unforgettable as possible.

Mark/Shauna Gale purchased this villa in 2004

Why Mark/Shauna Gale chose St. James

The idea of Villa Bruadair was to create a private and relaxing setting where one can become immersed in the luxuriant surroundings of this idealistic environment. The Villa was built on a previously unused plot overlooking a luscious rainforest setting, home to a multitude of wildlife, including monkeys, who regularly can be seen swinging through the canopy.

A brilliant aspect of the Villa is that it is privately set away from the outside world, allowing you to relax in peace. However, less than a ten minute walk away, you can find stunning west coast beaches, welcoming bars, and award-winning restaurants!

Why choose Barbados over any other Caribbean island? I have visited many Caribbean islands, and from my own personal experience, Barbados is in a league of its own! From the overly-welcoming locals to the vibrant, exciting culture, exploring the island is bound to be an exciting, pleasurable and truly memorable experience! Of course, if exploring isn't for you, Barbados oozes with opulence. A great example of this is the Lime Grove lifestyle centre, situated a few minutes away from the Villa and boasting one of the best luxury and duty-free shopping experiences on the island.

What makes this villa unique

The most unique benefit of this Villa is the duality of its purposes. Other than the tranquil, breathtaking tropical setting of the Villa, one can experience some of the island's best nightlife and dining out experiences mere minutes away.

Spaciousness is always a crucial part of having a relaxing holiday. With seven bedrooms, two swimming pools, two fully-fitted kitchens and plenty of outdoor seating, Villa Bruadair allows its guests the luxury of space. The size of the Villa means that it is suited for large groups of people, from family reunions to sporting societies and weddings, we specialize in making sure your stay is as special as possible. In regards to weddings, all arrangements can be organized with ease, they are, after all, one of our specialties!

If your idea of a holiday is one of pampering and relaxing, we can organise trained butlers and personal chefs to cater to your every need. With Villa Bruadair, no request is too big or too small!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We are back in the States and missing "our" Villa Bruadair and the Island of Barbados! We wanted to let you know that your management staff, Lisa Russell, in particular and your house staff, Camelta & Cynthia, are truly amazing. They made us feel right at home and treated us like family during our stay.

As to your Villa Bruadair, what can we say!? It is truly magnificent and the views are spectacular! The photos on your website really do not do it justice. We hope to visit again soon!

The house was great, plenty of room for 11 of us. It was very clean and well prepared, the on site maids were very good and helpful as were the management team. We had dinner prepared for us one night by Wendall which was excellent, I would thorougly recommend. The house wasn't far from the village except to walk it was dangerous because of the road and lack of sidewalks, traffic was heavy and fastOne warning for visitors to BArbados, beware of sand flies, they were vicious and we all got thoroughly bitten!

I thought I would drop you a line to let you know what a fabulous time we had at the villa, many thanks indeed for being so flexible regarding the rooms at the property. The house is stunning and is completed to such a high standard throughout. The maids were great fun and kept the place clean and tidy for all 9 days we stayed. We would certainly recommend the villa to any of our friends.

kind regards Bill

Totally Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

I just had to write to you say a huge THANK YOU the villa is totally fantastic. You have clearly put a huge amount of effort and time into designing and furnishing Bruadair and it really shows.

From the moment we arrived and were met by Lisa to the moment we left a tearful Janetta we had the time of our lives. The villa has everything for everybody, communal areas or quiet chill out areas which came in very handy on the odd occasions we’d had a late night out in Hole Town at the Mews and the fabulous Lexy Piano Bar!

We used both kitchens to their full potential with the upper one being our day time snack kitchen and the downstairs one being our formal dining kitchen when we chose to dine in which we did on two occasions due to everywhere being booked up. The lower terrace is a great dining area and looks very classy when we all dressed for dinner and sat down to eat. The bar on the lower terrace also came in very handy and I’m now a dab hand at Pina Coladas!!!! Janetta and her pal did everything and as soon as you put something down it was washed, dried and put away and that includes our laundry! What fabulous service. Please thank Janetta again for us when you see her next which I believe is soon (Now who’s very jealous)

The only thing we think you need at the villa are a few more sun beds as we found we did not have enough apart from that all was perfect so much so we are already trying to plan our next visit and are hoping to fill all of the rooms hopefully sometime in November, once I’ve got a clearer picture I’ll drop you a line!

Once again Mark many thanks we had a great time and can’t wait to get back to Bruadair later in the year dependant on availability of course!!!!

Lucky to have found it

  • 5 of 5

I just wanted to say what a fantastic time we had in Barbados and that Bruadair Villa is amazing! What a perfect place to get married - we were so lucky to have found it!

Our day was very special and we could not have done it without the brilliant staff! - they even arranged 2 Doves for us to release as a surprise! They were on hand for the whole of our stay and helped arrange some fantastic trips for us - especially the Private Sunset Cruise on Silver Moon!

All of our party had such a wonderful time and did not want to leave! Barbados is such a great Island and I can honestly say it was the best week of my life!

We will definitely be returning and hope to stay at the Bruadair again - it was like living in a Palace and I would recommend it to anyone!

Beautiful Bruadair

  • 5 of 5

I would like to thank you for renting us your beautiful villa it was more than we had expected. It was a wonderful way to enjoy a family holiday, we all had our individual spaces but also amazing areas to enjoy as a group.

Your games and movies were enjoyed during our rainy days and lazy evenings. The monkeys also decided to entertain us which was really amazing and we have some really good pictures of them. The staff was very accommodating and fun to be around, we really enjoyed them especially the chef that Lisa had arranged for us.

You have a wonderful place that you should be very proud

of. I think the days of all inclusive holidays are gone for us!

This wonderful villa, built within beautiful tropical surroundings on old plantation land (Lascelles). Because of its unspoilt location you will be amazed to experience monkeys in their natural habitat almost every day, many visitors to Barbados travel all around the Island on the chance that they may glimpse a monkey! But that's not all, we are within walking distance of the beach, bars, restaurants and shopping - what more could anyone wish for?
