Beautiful villa in a great location !!

  • 5 of 5

9th - 23rd July 2018.....

We have had many holidays in Barbados over the years, but this was our first in a villa and on the West coast and we couldn't have chosen a better home / area !

The villa is as spacious and spotlessly clean as it looks in the photos, the gardens are lovely and everything you need to make your holiday go well is there. We even had occasional visits from a local green monkey family which added to the fun (they don't trouble you at all).

To be honest we didn't make as much use of the Beach Club membership at Fairmont as we could / should until later in the holiday, but the beach / sea was lovely and the turtles are right there, if you're lucky ! Amazing sunsets too (weather permitting).

Esther is a fantastic host / housekeeper and nothing is too much trouble, she is a credit to the owners and to the island.

We had the use of a car that allowed us to get around the island and visit several restaurants that are out of reach by foot (it's too hot anyway), but the Limegrove area where there are several good restaurants / beach bars is only about 20 minutes walk if you feel the need. Zaccios and The Mews were amongst our favourites here and going north the fantastic Lone Star is only a 10 minute stroll along the beach, or road.

We will definitely return in the future - many, many thanks to Tina, Esther and Barbara for arranging everything, taking care of us and ensuring we had a very memorable holiday !

Keep up the great work !

Brian & Sam Parr & Family

Lovely villa

  • 5 of 5

This villa is as lovely as it looks in the photos and the daily maid service is hugely welcome. The location is only two minutes walk from the sea and the use of the sun loungers at the Fairmont Hotel is an added bonus. There are bars and restaurants only a short walk away and Holetown just five minutes down the road.

Lovely Clean House very close to the beach and nice restaurants

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here at Ridgecot. The house is kept very clean, in good order and is very spacious for 3 couples. The bathrooms are immaculate and the outside area, garden & pool are all great too. We loced the fact Tina arranged for some shopping to be already in the fridge on our arrival...These touches reallt make all the difference. The house is situated just off quite a busy road however it's set back and positioned behind electric gates so there's not too much noise from traffic. Nearby is the Lonestar restaurant which is nice but service is often slow.. you're much better off visiting Tides restaurant in Holetown (12 mins taxi ride) which in our opinion is even better than the Cliff! Overall a lovely stay in a lovely house. Thank you everyone.

Absolutely fantastic villa in an ideal location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at Tina's wonderful villa as everything was perfect! Tina helped by organising our pick up from the airport (with the great Donald), organised groceries and essentials to be at the villa, recommended restaurants (The Lonestar was amazing) and even sent me a book called "Barbados in a Nutshell".

Esther, the housekeeper, looked after us too and even cooked a typical Bajan meal for us one night.

We have all said that we would love to go back!

First Class

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from Ridgecot House, it is a beautiful property with first class amenities, in a great location.

We had a wonderful family holiday, many thanks to Esther, the housekeeper who looked after us so well and to Donald and Suzanne who drove us around the beautiful island of Barbados.

We really enjoyed the choice of excellent restaurants which are close to Ridgecot, in particular, The Lonestar and Tides.

The beach facilities which we used at The Royal Pavillion, through staying at Ridgecot, were first class.

Tina, the owner was a pleasure to deal with, even arranging for groceries to be at the house for our arrival.

We have just booked to return for next year.

Ridgecot is situated on the West Coast of Barbados in the parish of St James. Holetown is 0.5 miles to the south, with banks, supermarket, a wide range of shops and some excellent restaurants (including Tides and The Beach House). The villa is just 200 yards away from one of Barbados' most beautiful stretches of white coral beach. There are no private beaches on the island so you are free to wander as far up and down the coastline as you wish.

Ridgecot guests have membership to the Fairmont Royal Pavilion Hotel's Beach Club, where sun loungers, umbrellas, changing facilities, showers, snack bar etc are available. The Beach Club is only a short 3 minute walk away.There is a charge of $Bds 50 each for loss of any Beach Club pass.

Ridgecot is located opposite the Fairmont Royal Pavilion, one of the best known and most luxurious hotels in the Caribbean. A range of facilities are available to you here, including shops, beauty salons, hairdresser and two excellent restaurants (try the afternoon tea!).

Next to Royal Pavilion is Juju's beach bar, a great place for casual dining and sunsets. Sun loungers are available.

A two minute walk to the north of Ridgecot is one of our favourite restaurants, Lone Star - a more fabulous setting would be difficult to find.
