About the home
Ridge View Villa has been designed so as to take advantage of the breath taking views and boasts a large pool. Take an early morning dip then have your morning coffee relaxing by the pool whilst reading a good book. This retreat will ease all tensions of a busy life. With lights in and around the pool a midnight swim under the stars is a must.
For the daytime take yourself down to nearby Bottom Bay or Crane beach. Relax at Bottom Bay, the closer of the two, Bottom Bay has a beautiful coral sandy beach, while away your days listening to the sea and soaking up the sun in this stunning tropical paradise. For the more adventurous discover the deserted nearby bays/beaches of Foul Bay, Harry Smith beach and Sam Lords Castle. The villa is therefore perfect for both couples and families who want to relax by the pool or the more adventurous who wish to explore beaches and bays of unparallel beauty.

set in local community, nice house with mod com. Nice pool. Beautiful view of lanscape with animals, very calm and easy to get to.
Very nice people welcoming us
Beautiful beach nearby + supermarket
No a lot of restaurants
Just a few minor negative things: a house is being built next door, pay additional for A/C & internet (not very expensive) but thought price was all inclusive, small pastic tables outside on the terrace to eat for a whole family

We had a terrific time in Barbados. A jovial lady named Pat was the perfect host, whilst the weather was fantastic! We couldn't have asked for more.
The villa is absolutely lovely, situated in a beautiful and peaceful location. The accommodation is not done justice by the photo's - you really have to see it yourself!
The cleaners and management of the property were extremely efficient and friendly and help was only a phone call away in case of any problems - though we didn't have any.
The villa was well equipped, clean and has the most outstanding view at the rear of the property.
All in all a wonderful honeymoon spent at the villa. The beach is only a 10 minute walk away, with the airport not very far either. Shops are local too.
Thank you for a fantastic time staying at the villa. The accommodation really had everything we required. We were very impressed with the time and trouble taken to look after, us not only before, but also on our arrival and departure back home. Thank you again and we would definitely recommend and use your this villa again.
