Fantastic family holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We had simply had an amazing time at Ridgecot! Thank you to Tina for all your help both before & during our stay. We (family of 5 with 3 children aged 10, 8 & 4) thoroughly enjoyed the house and can't wait to come back!! In order to assist anyone who is thinking of booking, I comment further as follows:

House - 3 good sized bedrooms and ample "living room". Two of the bedrooms have double beds with en suite bathrooms. All our air conditioned. The living area has plenty of space with comfortable sofas, a good sized dining table and even a football table. Again air conditioned too. The kitchen is of a good size and has all modern appliances (oven, microwave, dishwasher, cooking utensils, good size fridge & freezer). We cooked on a few occasions and found everything we needed for a family meal. We were well looked after by Esther the housekeeper who kept the house spotlessly clean and made sure towels were in a ready supply.

Garden - lovely pool with a fantastic covered area where you can eat/relax. The swing at the front of the house was also an added bonus! Gardens were full of lovely trees/plants/flowers and well maintained.

Location - immediately opposite the Fairmont Royal Pavilion and about 5 minute drive from Holetown. Very easy to find and really convenient in terms of restaurants & things to do. Lone Star is a short stroll away as is JuJu's beach bar and Santi's. We did not hire a car but relied on the buses (there is stop almost outside the house in both directions). Holetown has a good supermarket plus dozens of good restaurants. Oh and an upmarket shopping mall - Limegrove (

Beach - as members of the beach club at the Fairmont, you get access to a brilliant stretch of the beach. Ryan and his gang will look after you. The Club has a small restaurant serving good food. Sun loungers are also provided. Ryan organised water skiing, Hobie Cat, turtle trips etc.

So - a fantastic holiday made all the better by a brilliant house. Thank you Tina.

Hidden gem on the West Coast

  • 5 of 5

We cannot recommend Ridgecot highly enough. The house is very private located behind its own set of electric gates but is only a 2 minute walk to the beach club at the Fairmont Royal Pavillion. Tina includes beach club passes which is worth its weight in gold . Where do I start with the house , we were met by Esther the housekeeper who gave us a fabulous welcome. She is a star. Nothing was an issue, she was friendly, informative and went out of her way to make our stay enjoyable . She even told us off one day for loading the dishwasher as she said she was there to make our holiday as relaxing as possible. She keeps the house spotless and tidy and provided clean bath and beach towels daily. I enjoyed our daily chats over a cup of tea. The grounds of the house and pool are well kept and the verandah is outstanding, a great place to eat your evening meal made possible by the fabulous kitchen. Dealing with Tina was professional and business like, nothing was a problem and every query I had was answered very promptly and in a friendly manner by Tina. I can recommend using Suzanne for the taxi transfer as recommended by Tina. She is reliable, friendly and informative. We feel we have been well looked after from the booking stage of the holiday right the way to drop off at the airport. Well done Tina you run a tight ship and have the most amazing housekeeper. We will be returning.

Even better than expected

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a fabulous stay in this lovely home. It was our 13th visit to Barbados and Ridgecot was, by far, the best home we have rented. The location is perfect and the beach club use invaluable. The whole house is furnished comfortably and stylishly with everything you could possibly need. The newly refurbished kitchen is fully equipped. It was great to walk back from the beach and relax at the pool. The maid, Esther, is lovely and keeps the house immaculate. Thank you Tina - we will be back.

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from two weeks at Ridgecot House. It was a great family vacation with our 2 daughters, their husbands and our 10 month old granddaughter. The house was very spacious and we particularly loved the big kitchen, ideal for group cooking. Esther is lovely and helped keep us clean and tidy. We used the pool daily and made many jaunts to the beach just a short walk away. Lots of great restaurants close by. Wonderful vacation. We will be back.

This trip was everything that we expected and hoped for. The villa was stunning, Esther is lovely and was very helpful throughout our stay, We visited Lone Star which was a lovely dining experience. The people we met at the Beach Club were lovely and very welcoming. We recommend you try Ted''s Tours, a relaxed and informative tour of the island with plenty of rum punch en route. We can't wait to get back again. Thank you

Great location

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful break. Near a beautiful beach with complimentary Beach Club membership providing sunloungers and hobie cats etc. Esther kept the house immaculate and was full of useful local knowledge. Kevin maintained the gardens and pool to a high standard. Extremely comfortable and well equipped with very good wifi.

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.
