"A lovely villa in an excellent location"
Ebbtide is a beautiful house situated right next to the Caribbean Sea in Fitts Village, St James, West Coast of Barbados. The house sleeps 8. The top two bedrooms are stunning and large and have a shared balcony (huge) overlooking the sea. The ground floor double is huge (plenty of room for a cot) and has a large bedroom, but no view. The fourth room on the ground floor is small and contains twin beds and is more suited to children, and has an en-suite. There are no baths in the property, but this was not a problem for us. The website advertises the house as having a small plunge pool. This is accurate, and was adequate for the three small children that we had with us ( a one yr old, a three yr old and a five yr old). In an ideal world, we would have liked a larger pool but owing to the proximity of the sea this was not a huge problem. The house comes with staff, a cook, Merlissa, and a maid, Jackie. The staff work 9-2 and 5-8. If you are early risers and would like an earlier breakfast it is worth discussing this at the time of booking. The quality of the cooking was first rate, and the house was always clean and tidy, and our clothing was laundered and turned around each morning. We had little contact with the house manager, Andrew, but what contact we did have was positive and helpful.

This house was everything we had hoped it would be when we booked it. We had seen the pictures on the website, and when we got there it was even better, it was complete and utter paradise and we were treat like royalty for our whole stay. Being so close to the beach meant that we were in the middle of all the water sports, with beach bars and shops in Holetown just a short ride away. Seeing the turtles swimming outside our house every morning was the icing on the cake!
We couldn't fault any part of it, the food and service was fantastic. We didn't want to leave and will definitely be going back, it is the perfect location for a holiday home.

"So close to the beach"
Ebb Tide is one of those rare places where you can have breakfast, lunch and dinner seating 15 feet from a turquoise sea. The staff made our stay even more enjoyable. The house is impeccable. Bring your snorkeling gear.

"Beautiful villa in wonderful location."
We stayed at Ebb Tide for a fortnight, five of us across three generations. The villa suited all of us very well. The accommodation is spacious and very well arranged. The cook and housekeeper looked after us so well. They were flexible and catered for exactly what we asked for. No request was too much. The security was reliable and trustworthy. The location is close to Bridgetown but on a beautiful beach, so provided everything we needed. We saw turtles close to the shore, the snorkelling was amazing and the sea was calm and clear for swimming. A relaxing and totally enjoyable stay.

"The beauty of Ebb Tide matches the beauty of this paradise island"
I loved everything about this villa and it is difficult to put into words just how fabulous it is, but I will try.
I stayed there last week with 4 other guests on a Barbados singing holiday run by Mike King and we are all suffering withdrawal symptoms.
The listing description sounds wonderful, but when you get there it is so beautiful that it is beyond words. The layout is very spacious and all the bedrooms are individual and separate from each other. I had one of the bedrooms with a seaview and double doors leading out onto the balcony - I felt like a film star. The bed was huge and comfortable and I was lulled to sleep with the sound of the sea. I loved being able to see the sea whilst I was showering through a porthole in the bathroom wall. The lounge and dining area are so spacious that 20 or so guests were very comfortably able to enjoy our concert party on our last night.
The villa is run perfectly by Jackie the housekeeper and Merlissa the chef. Jackie keeps it cleaned immaculately and Merlissa cooked fantastic meals, usually 3 a day. They are such fun and always make you feel welcome in the kitchen even when they are busy. I felt so much healthier after a week of Merlissa's cooking. Henry the guard is great and makes you feel very safe.
The best bit for me is its position which is so close to the sea you feel drawn just to sit and watch and listen. You can't tear your eyes away from the rising and setting of the sun and moon which are mirrored in the sea and the frogs and crickets provide an evening concerto. I haven't swum for a few years but from the first morning I woke up early and had to go into the sea, and this became a regular start to my day along with a walk along the beach (rehearsing my songs). The sea is gorgeous and warm, with lots of fish and interesting coral to look at. We had breakfast on the terrace and lunch usually in the pagoda - I did feel I was living the dream. The open aspect to the beach is quite different to other villas along that stretch of beach and means you get an uninterrupted view of the sea at all times.
I liked the fact that you are in your own world inside the villa and in the back garden and on the beach, but just outside the front is everyday life going on with buses which take you all over the island and a supermarket just up the road. It means you can get around quite independently without having to get taxis all the time.
I so appreciated staying in what felt like someone's home, rather than holiday accommodation. The owners have paid so much attention to detail both inside and outside the villa that I am amazed they can bear to let it.
I would recommend this property to friends and relatives and fully intend to return on another singing holiday and/or with my family.
We went on a catamaran trip with Long Running which was brilliant, swimming with the turtles and seeing a wreck. We did an island tour by taxi, which was a great way to see the island and we all loved Hunte Gardens. We visited a couple of bars at the Gap - Crave Bar and the Jam Bar where we saw some great live music.
All in all a fabulous, memorable holiday in paradise.

"Wonderful villa and location for family holiday"
I fully concur with all the other 5 star ratings.The villa and our holiday was amazing, the whole experience.Neil and Wendy were always on hand advising and assisting with flights, transfers and any a… More

We have just returned from 3 glorious weeks at Ebb Tide. Neil and Wendy provide an excellent service from start to finish. They called us several times before we left to ensure we had all the information we required and answered any questions we had before departure. Neil checked in with us during the holiday and on our return - they really care about ensuring you have the best holiday experience possible.
Airport transfers were arranged for us and we were greeted by Andrew, Merlisa and Jackie at the villa on arrival. Andrew showed us around the villa and after we settled in we sat down to our first delicious meal of many prepared by Merlisa who is an excellent chef (I have not weighed myself since my return as I dare not see how much weight I have put on!). We met Henry in the evening who provided security peace of mind in the evening and overnight (although we did not feel at risk, despite the frontline beach location).
The villa is very impressive looking and the vista is simply stunning - we spotted turtles from the villa garden every single day of our holiday, and were treated to the pleasure of swimming with a particularly curious turtle right outside the villa on more than one occasion. Note that the fishermen clean their flying fish catch about 100ft from the villa between 7am and 8am and you will be able to clearly see several turtles who come to sample the scraps.
The other half loves snorkelling (we brought our snorkelling gear with us but it can be purchased reasonably from Holetown) and went out every day as there are a couple of reefs close by, one outside the villa and one to the right. We also made good use of the kayaks.
As previously mentioned, dining at home was a big part of the holiday for us. Merlisa cooked us some wonderful meals. We left everything to Merlisa and she chose which meals to prepare for us. Merlisa even did the shopping for us (note that there were only 2 of us). Jackie keeps the place very clean and we had a jolly good laugh with the pair of them. Jackie arranged a tour of the island for us towards the end of our stay as we had spent most of the holiday at the villa as it provided everything we wanted for our holiday (sun, sea, good food and relaxation to the max).
The villa is light, airy, spacious and very well appointed - note that all en suites are showers so no baths at the property. There are fans downstairs and aircon in the bedrooms. Somebody who was staying in a 5 bedroom villa 3 down asked to have a look around and said their villa was more "rustic" which led me to believe Ebb Tide is more luxurious.
We were encouraged by Neil to speak to the locals who pass by the villa, which we did. Rosie is a lovely lady who lives a few villas down the beach, Sevens is a fisherman who will catch you your fish to order (he caught us red snapper which is in season - his telephone number is in the villa's information book), Delshan caught us some conch shells which we brought back as gifts), John Mark is a talented artist who makes lovely wire modelled figurines which again make great gifts, Darcy is a herbalist and all were great conversationlists. All spoke highly of Neil and Wendy who have clearly made the effort to integrate with the local community.
We love animals and nature and we fed the birds which visited the garden (finches, local blackbirds, doves, pigeons, heron and humming birds - didn't feed humming birds and herons :-)). There is also a friendly ginger and white cat, who we needed to shoo away when the birds were down. Folks walk their dogs past the villa in the late afternoon. We had a monkey one afternoon.
We had the best time - completely stress-free; we highly recommend Ebb Tide and the service provided by all associated with the villa and we will definitely return.
