“Excellent all round.Barbados at it`s best!”
Reviewed March 12, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

We stayed at Ridge View for 3 weeks February/March 2016.We have stayed in villas on Barbados before so had a good idea what to expect.Mauva&Phillip greeted us on our evening arrival with a complimentary welcome pack.The villa is located in a quiet residential area,just off the main road,at Bayley,Bottom Bay,St.Phillip.About 30 mins from the Airport.The villa is spacious and well furnished.3 good sized bedrooms,fully equipped kitchen area,separate washroom,2 toilets(1 en-suite)and a large airy living area.Free WiFi and mobile phone use.Limited TV coverage(poor choice).Outdoor pool(4ft.deep) illuminated at night.Sun beds,umbrellas&towels provided.Pool regularly serviced.All bedrooms are air conditioned.Access to the pool is down a flight of stairs so would be difficult for those with limited ability although you can access the pool via a sloping pathway at the side of the villa. The villa itself would be ok for people with limited mobilityNo complaints during our stay.Mauva was in regular contact and available by phone if needed.Great,quiet location just outside the main area`s.Nice to see the wild monkeys and other local wildlife from the rear verandah. A car is recommended to get about.It is a short walk to the bus stop but in the Barbados heat it can be a bit daunting.
Overall a very,very enjoyable experience.We would return and would recommend Ridge View to others.Thank you,Mauva,Phillip,Sylvia&Wesley

“Beautiful inside and out.”
Reviewed November 26, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

My family and I stayed at Ridgeview for 16 days. The villa is beautiful both inside and outside. It has a comfortable with air conditioning in all bedrooms. It has a very large lounge dining area and the beds are the best I've ever slpet in when travelling.
The outside patio provides a constant shade and a refreshing breeze from the heat of the sun. The pool is a lovely size and is cleaned once a week.
The location of the villa provides peace and quiet and you could sit on the patio and get lost in your thoughts without even realising it.
It is essential to hire a car as there is no access to buses within easy reach. Be careful of the roads at night especially if you are not familiar with driving in the caribbean.
It is a must when visiting Barbados to come with patience as nothing or noone moves quickly, which is a welcome relief from the hustle and bustle of busy city living.
If you need to book a taxi - book well in advance and not 10 minutes before you wish to go out.The villa is just a 20 minute drive from Oistins and 30 minutes from Bridgetown.
Bottom Bay is just down the road and provides outstanding views across the Atlantic Ocean - not for swimming but definitly for sunbathing.
You will have a warm welcome on your arrival to the villa and the same when you are departing.
We will definitly be renting this property again.

Ridge View Villa is beautiful, very clean, spacious, well equipped and with open countryside views, ( you may see a troop of Green Monkeys) if you are alert. The villa has a very nice pool that is well maintained once or twice a week (4ft deep). There are lockable gates on the stairs to stop very young children getting out near the pool.the balcony offers space to enjoy an evening Bar-b-que's and the pool has lights for a quick evening dip

Sylvia and Wesley's representatives are Mauva and Phillip who are family members, they are lovely people very friendly and they will do everything in their power to make sure your holiday goes without a hitch. They will meet you at the villa on arrival and show you the amenities and explain how everything works
It is just a short drive from the airport but transfers can be arranged if needed.
You will receive a welcome pack on arrival which also includes a few bottles of Banks beers left nice and cold in the fridge (most welcome) .
Mauva will phone you a few times during your stay to check if everything is o.k. and offer any advice on places to visit etc. should you need it. They are at the other end if the phone and are ready to respond immediately to any problems with the Villa should they crop up.

There is a Supermarket (Emerald City) at Six Roads which stocks all your needs. They will deliver your shopping and you back to your villa if you show them your receipt.
There is a Fruit and Veg stall at the end of the road run by a very nice couple and their children who also sell Bead and Eggs (one at a time if you wish).

Barbados is a fantastic country made by it's people who are very friendly and always ready to have a chat, they will be happy to help you when they can. As you drive down the road you will be surprised at how.many people just give you a wave

The beaches are fantastic, long sandy and with palm tree shade. It is hot but the warm breeze helps. Bottom Bay is within walking distance. But further a field we found Dover a Beach and Carlisle Bay which we considered to be the calmest especially for children. We saw Turtles swimming along side us at Worthing Beach. It is hard to pick a favourite.
.
I would recommend you hire a car if you want to see the Island, more for convenience as the busses do service the whole Island but waiting for them seems to waste the day.
We visited quite a few places such as Huntes Gardens. Harrison's Caves, The Four Square Rum Factory, The Animal caves at the end of the Island and many more but I am sure you will find your own favourites.
But please do not miss Oistins Fish-Fry on. Friday night . The atmosphere is fantastic, great food with plenty of small places to choose from to eat serving not only fish but Shrimp Chicken and Pork with great accompaniments and Bajan Fishcakes (Yum!)
The place is enjoyed by locals a tourists a like eating, listening to music watching the dancing and doing a little shopping at the little stalls that pop up. You will love watching the local men play Dominoes (they get so excited!!) Go whilst still light if you want to see the Turtles swimming from the Pier.

We were a party of six of mixed ages from lat 20s to middle 60s and we all found so much we enjoyed to do and we came back relaxed, tanned and ready to face life again, we cannot wait to repeat the experience.

Thankyou Sylvia and Wesley for a wonderful holiday and Thankyou Mauva and Philip for your hospitality .

“Absolutely perfect”
Reviewed April 9, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

We stayed there for 12 days in March and everything about it was great. It is ideally located but is till very quiet. The view from the patio is stunning. Also, the people managing the property were all very friendly, nice and efficient. They sorted everything out as per our request (high chair for our baby etc). Definitely recommended if you are craving some peace and quiet

“The Real Barbados”
Reviewed April 15, 2013 for a stay in April 2013

Recently stayed at Ridge View Villa with a party of seven in the house and appartment,my first time to Barbados and to this Villa and have to say the whole experience was just brilliant.The Villa is located not far from Bottom Bay a place that has to be seen to be believed, you could be cast aways on the beach it is that secluded, takes your breath away.The Villa is located in the region of St Philip,( Atlantic coast side ) where the real Bajan people live,everyone we met near our villa and when out and about were so friendly and helpful and made you feel so at home and part of the place straight away.The views from the Villa are spexctactular open fields for miles with all types of wildlife roaming free including monkeys.The swimming pool was very nice to cool off in and was a great focal point of the villa.The Villa was very clean, spacious and homely and it had everything you could want for whilst on holiday and the wi fi worked without a hitch.They provided a Barbeque which we often used and cooked the king fish I caught on.You will need a car to get around as the supermarket is about 15 minutes away, and I would recommend you rent a car anyway just to get around and see this beautiful island.It was our first time here, but it will not be our last visit to paradise.Would recommend this Villa and island to anyone.
