About the property

3 double beds, all en suite, 2 with dressing rooms, all with ceiling fans & a/c.

Ideally situated on the luxurious West Coast of Barbados, Ridgecot House is close to superb restaurants and white coral sand beaches. The villa has been tastefully decorated with a blend of wooden Indonesian and Oriental furniture designed to maximise on tropical living with high ceilings, spacious rooms and a large airy terrace.

All three bedrooms have air-conditioning and ceiling fans, each with en-suite bathroom. Two bedrooms also have dressing rooms. The Master bedroom has a king sized four poster bed, the second boasts a fabulous hand-carved king sized bed, with the third having two single beds.

Lovely villa in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Ridgecot; it definitely lived up to the photos on the website. It was large and spacious and had everything we needed to make it a very comfortable stay. We spent a lot of time on the terrace area and in the pool which was a perfect size but the indoor area was also very impressive with tv, music system, books, games etc. The garden was beautifully maintained with hummingbirds and the occasional yellowbird visiting.

It was great to meet Esther who was very kind and helpful and we do hope to be back again.

The location could not be better, right by the bus stops and very close to the lovely Alleynes Beach which for us would be better accessed by the public walkway rather than using the facilities at the Royal Fairmont Pavilion whose staff at the beach were, let's say, not too pleasant - the only glitch in an otherwise perfect holiday.

Stunning villa, fabulous location and great staff

  • 5 of 5

I booked this villa with my 2 friends for my big birthday holiday. I've been to Barbados many times but this was my first time at Ridgecot House.

I couldn't have chosen a better place and the memories will stay with me forever. From 1st sight of this gorgeous villa we had the best holiday ever.

Esther greeted us at the door and we have so many happy memories of her. She became our special guest everyday and we loved to get her to sit down with us, have some lunch and tell us stories of her family and the island. We bought some food for our last evening and she cooked us a great, traditional Bajan meal.

We shared some of the meal with Kevin the gardener who, like Esther, was a treasure and a lovely man. He tended the garden well and kept it lovely, even planting cuttings to keep it looking beautiful.

We loved the pool and the terrace so much that we hardly left. and we also had some fun on the swing with some great pictures as forever memories

The Fairmont Beach Club was an added bonus. So close and great for sunsets.

The house itself is stunning and has everything you need. The bus stops outside so you can easily get to anywhere on the island

I cant say enough but i will say that we are planning to come back soon.

From the moment arrived we were smitten! The driver was there at the airport right away to take us to the house and was so helpful! As was Esther who so kindly stocked the fridge for us before we arrived! The house was kept spotless. The grounds were gorgeous! We so enjoyed our morning coffee by the pool and cooking the occasional dinner and eating outside on the beautiful covered veranda. The beach was fabulous and the chair privileges with the Fairmont were great...not crowded at all. Really can't find a bad thing to say. Tina the owner is so helpful as well with any questions or requests you might have. We just can't wait to go back!

Fabulous villa

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned for a truly wonderful holiday - Ridgecot is a fabulous villa and was perfect for us. The kitchen has everything you need and more, the veranda is lovely to have an evening meal on, and the villa is nicely furnished and feels very much like a home away from home.

Esther popped in every day to do a quick clean and make the beds etc and went out of her way to help and was especially sweet with the kids.

We didn't want to come back!!

Faultless service, beautiful property in a perfect location. Everything we needed for a perfect holiday.

Beach 3 mins walk - very friendly and accommodating beach staff.

Esther (maid) is very helpful, friendly and efficient.

Communication with HomeAway and the owners is very efficient.

We would strongly recommend this property.

Thankyou so much.

Fantastic property in a gorgeous location

  • 5 of 5

This is a special place.

The property itself is really excellent - it looks amazing, has plenty of room, with great facilities and the wonderful Esther who takes good care of you. It is an ideal home from home, and a luxurious base from which to explore this beautiful and varied island. The pool and sun loungers are perfect if you don't fancy the beach today.

And what a stunning beach! Walk across the road and through the grounds of the Fairmont Royal Pavilion and enjoy a quintessential Caribbean beach - palm trees, fine white sand and stunning blue water. Add in the beach club and bar and you could spend the day here. Good food, excellent rum punch, and great service from Kerry, Sherlock and the team, who are very friendly. I can recommend the 'Big Mabel' ride behind the speedboat, and you must, must swim with the turtles - it is amazing!

We ate at various places locally, and in Holetown and Speightstown, and never had a bad meal - invariably the blackened catch of the day was delicious.

It is well worth hiring a car for a couple of days - Barbara, the managing agent in Barbados arranged for ours to be dropped off and collected at the house. This will allow you to discover how varied the landscape on the island is - the rugged east coast is such a contrast from the calm west coast on which Ridgecot House is located, and Animal Flower cave on the very north of the island was spectacular. I would also recommend a trip to Hunte's Garden in the middle of the island, which is stunning.

Tina, the owner, was very helpful prior to our visit, giving us some great tips and promptly answering our questions. We have been home for a week and are already planning our next visit.

Owner's Response: Exploring the island just shows you how varied the island is, calm seas on the West and the rugged landscape and surfing waves on the East. Well worth renting a car and getting out and about. Friendly locals are always on hand for directions.

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.
