About kerry wood
We are a professional couple who bought the house as a second home for our family, friends and ourselves to enjoy as a holiday home. We love the island as do our daughters and we also have a 4 year old granddaughter who is getting very used to island life!!
kerry wood purchased this House in 2008
Why kerry wood chose Sandy Lane
Our relationship with Barbados goes back a long way, it was our honeymoon destination (long time ago now,,,) and whilst the island has seen many changes, for us it retains such a relaxing atmosphere that we never get tired of being there. We have tried to create this aura of relaxation in the house and we think of guests as friends in our home. Indeed the majority of our guests are repeat bookings and we have a number who have been staying with us for quite a few years.
What makes this House unique
The house is furnished in a style that is personal to us and we hope you like it. We have tried to incorporate pale Caribbean colors with individual pieces like the shell mirrors made by me! The patio at the rear of the property looks over a gully that is quiet and cool. Its our happy place for a coffee in the morning and a G&T (or two) in the evening. Its a great place to see the monkeys swinging in the trees, the hummingbirds on the flowers and at night the fireflies can put in an appearance. Feedback from our guests always features the relaxing atmosphere, the close proximity to all the amenities and the fact that the house is so well maintained.

Lovely house, local area is great and would highly recommend.
The home was very comfortable and well appointed
Ideally located, just a short walk to the beach. Access to sun crest club with its beach amenities was really helpful. The provision of beach towels, snorkelling equipment and beach balls was a lovely extra
It really is a home away from home with lots of additional nice little touches
Perfect in every way
A perfect place for a perfect holiday! We (family of four) absolutely loved our stay at the Falls. The house is so beautifully appointed, has everything you need in the kitchen, bathrooms and laundry room and the location is spot-on. Kerry was a delight to deal with. She was always quick to reply to all of our questions and very helpful.
The location of the home within the Falls gated community is the best of the lot. It is on the best side of the street because the backyard backs onto a lovely green space where you can watch fireflies dazzle at night and monkeys and birds during the day. It is also only one unit (house) away from the pool and fitness room. Although we always had the pool to ourselves (it is obviously not used much) I was glad we were not right beside the pool.
Kerry has generously provided candles to enjoy as you sit on the back patio in the perfectly comfortable warm Barbados nights.
Holetown is the nicest area of the island. The beaches are wonderful and if you want to surf or kiteboard, they are not far away at the South end of the island.
We dived at Hightide Watersports and would highly recommend them. They are only 5 minutes away by car at the gorgeous Coral Reef Hotel.
The staff at the Falls were all so very kind and helpful, like all the locals we met in Barbados. We have been to many countries and found the people of Barbados to be the nicest, warmest and friendliest of any place we have been to. We Love Barbados and hope to be able to stay at Kerry’s place next time.
Thank you Kerry for helping us have a perfect holiday.
Fabulous house and great location
The house is amazing - everything we could have wished for.
It is beautifully furnished and very well equipped. The Falls is a peaceful, secure small development and well located. Within walking distance of the numerous restaurants bars and shops in Holetown and with bus stops a few minutes walk enabling us to easily get wherever we wished to go without needing a car.
The small garden to the rear of the property was secluded and the patio area the perfect place to eat breakfast or relax with a glass of something cold in the early evening whilst enjoying the birds and family of monkeys we were lucky enough to see.
The three bedrooms were beautiful with air conditioning and great en suite facilities. Plenty of storage space and coat hangers!
The kitchen and living areas were very well equipped/furnished.
Kerry was very helpful and communicative and the house guide was full of useful information about local restaurants bars beaches etc .
There were beautiful beaches within walking distance or a short bus ride away and we also made use of the Falls pool and pool and facilities at the Beach House on occasion.
We would wholeheartedly recommend this property and would love to return here when next in Barbados . It is a gem!
Thank you so much for a great review. We are really pleased that you had such a good time and that you liked our house. We'd love to welcome you again soon.

The perfect villa for a holiday in Barbados
This is our second visit to Barbados and our second to No14 The Falls.
The villa is situated on a small private development well placed for exploring the platinum coast of Barbados - well placed for the white beaches and many of the finest restaurants that Barbados offers.
The villa is fabulous , 3 really well appointed air conditioned and superbly finished en suite bedrooms. The wide marble stairs lead down to again a fantastically appointed open plan living / dining/ kitchen area which has everything you need . Triple opening French doors lead onto the patio to allow you to enjoy the quiet of the morning while contemplating your day.
Some 20 yards from the villa is the communal pool and well equipped gym if you fancy a day away from the beach.
I cannot recommend this villa enough it really is 5 star plus....
Conrad and Claire

Hope to see you again soon.

Great Stay at No. 14 The Falls
Beautifully presented property which is a great location for exploring the west coast of Barbados and beyond. We made good use of the well equipped gym and communal pool. Any questions we had were dealt with directly and promptly by Kerry the owner. We enjoyed staying at The Falls more than previous hotel based holidays in Barbados. Can't wait to return and would highly recommend!
Thank you very much for taking the time to review our house and we are glad to hear that you enjoyed it.
We look forward to welcoming you again.

The famous Sandy Lane beach is easily accessed within a few minutes walk or a short 10 minute drive takes you to the facilities of Mullins Beach. Paynes bay is also very close by.
Barbados is easy to get round and hiring a car is recommended to get the most from your holiday. It is possible to get round using the very reasonable and plentiful taxi services. To get to The Falls via a taxi from Grantley Adams airport will cost approx $70-80 bbds. We can help by recommending car hire / Taxi services if required. Also concierge services at the Falls will be happy to help.
Holetown is just over half a mile away as is the popular 'Tides' restaurant. Sandy Lane hotel lies adjacent to the property and is within easy walking distance. Further shopping is available at Speightstown -about 8km north and Bridgetown is approx 15km south.
A selection of shops, banks and a well stocked supermarket Dining in Barbados is varied- from the more expensive such as Daphnes, The Cliff, Il Tempio, the Lone Star (my fave) to med price - The Fishpot just north of Speightstown and the brilliant Cariba (well worth a vist) to the less upmarket but often good value restaurants such as Zacchios and Surfside. Holetown contains a variety of restaurants/ bars and has a surprisingly good nightlife for teenagers!
