Now our Home away from Home.... pure paradise

  • 5 of 5
We have been returning to the villa for 6 years now and it's like coming home to family for us now. Norma like a sister and Aubrey a brother. They have always taken care of all our needs and then some. We were there during hurricane Tomas and their concern for our safety was as great as it was for themselves if not more. That is how you really find out what people are made of and Aubrey and Norma are just the best - salt of the earth that you can depend on 110% We love them dearly and that's on top of the fact the villa is paradise, so reasonably priced (never thought we could afford a place like this!), clean, spacious and just gorgeous (monkeys in the gully too!).

Here at this amazing villa and loving it!!!

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed here every year for about 8 years now and will be back again and again. The villa is spacious, spotless, peaceful and great value pound for pound. The hosts, Norma and Aubry make sure you are well taken care of and even pick you up at the airport. Bedrooms are well thought out and beds are very comfortable. Lots of towels, linens and a huge well equiped kitchen. The layout allows for several areas to go off and have your own space, while at the same time is has an open concept billard/music and open air deck area -great for entertaining. Don't look any further - book here if you can and then write your own review :)

soon you again Norma and Aubry!!

awesome stay in the caribbean

  • 5 of 5
My group stayed here a few years ago for a week. Aubrey picked us up at the airport and was truly an amazing host. From the outside it didn't look like much, but once you walk through the front door your breath is taken away. It was gorgeous, completely open amazing view. We didn't see any bugs or dirt. It was clean and the house had board games, musical instruments and a snooker table to occupy our time. When we arrived and unpacked Aubrey brought us down to the beach bar for a few beers and to grab some more beer for the house that night. the deck was huge and it's very cool to sleep in the hammock and be woken up by the monkey's and birds in the morning. The location is perfect to catch the dinky vans to other parts of the island and just walk to the supermarket( which will drive you home with your groceries for free) so stop at the beach bar first and but a sandwich for a free ride home! You can also do laundry and unless you spill sugar or leave food or garbage around there's no problem with bugs. It made me sad to see that one terrible review because the place is just amazing, it was definitely the people who couldn't handle the house. I plan on coming back this May and chillin with Aubrey.

It's like going back in time to the old Barbados

It's like going back in time to the old Barbados
  • 4 of 5
My visits to Barbados started 45 years ago when I was 20 years old and it was truly the 'happiness island'.
Northlight Villa has transported me back in time. This is the old Barbados that I loved before the advent of flash cash mega construction. This spacious villa is full of old style romance and charm. There's lots of wood; floors, roof beams, furniture, all wood. If you like watching monkeys ( they don't come inside by the way) or being watched by monkeys. If you don't mind manoeuvring around the 40-leggers while you play snooker. If you are ok with little birds taking shortcuts through the open roof. If you want privacy. If you want space. If you like an open air shower with the occasional large snail making his way in and out. If you like to feel as if you're in the jungle yet be half a mile from 'Daphnes', the beach and the polo. Then book Northlight Villa.
The hosts Norma and Aubrey are friendly and helpful and always on the end of the phone if you need them.
The downside was that it could have been cleaner. Soon after our arrival Norma, who normaly is hands on in looking after the place, was taken quite poorly and I think this made a difference to the running of the place. Also the pictures on the website are quite old.
To summarise: if you would enjoy Sandy Lane then don't book Northlight. If you love space, privacy, and to be at one with nature then book Northlight. Also the huge terrace is a wonderful area for socialising.

Owner's Response: Thankyou for taking the time to write a fair and honest review of Northlight Villa.

Regarding the cleanliness of the Villa,, I was taken very sick and bedridden for 6 weeks at the beginning of your stay and having to rely on a local lady to attend to the Villa was my only option - I apologise if the high standard that I strive for was not fulfilled.- we are in the process of renovating , painting and refurnishing for the coming season when there will be new photographs uploaded onto the website.

We like to think of Northlight Villa as a "home from home" for our guests ,it is a Caribbean open plan style house , full of rustic charm ,it has a heart ,and is away from the tourist trap- traditional , plantation style properties are now becoming less and less with new, modern ,concrete buildings being built instead (reminding me of a "little Miami") moving us into the so called "modern world " - lets hope we (Barbados ) don't lose that wonderful feeling of "old charm ' that has and will attract visitors from all over the world, we are certainly trying to retain it and welcome you all with as much hospitality as we can muster to make your stay at Northlight a wonderful, memorable experience.

Glorious week in Northlight Villa

  • 5 of 5
We loved this villa. Spacious, spotless and convenient with wonderful hosts Aubrey and Norma tending to our needs if we had any. Full kitchen, great decks and a wonderful little plunge pool in back for cooling off. There were 9 of us with plenty of space for all. Would definitely go back if our travels should take us to Barbados again.

Beautiful spot, very large and comfortable

  • 5 of 5
Our group of nine people had a wonderful stay and there was plenty of room for that number of people. The Villa was beautiful with every thing we needed for a pleasant stay. It was clean and quiet and we were delighted to watch the monkeys playing in the trees. Norma and Aubrey were so very helpful in many ways, especially making arrangements prior to arrival. We all loved our stay.

Northlight is located approx. 1 mile from beautiful Paynes Bay and a few minutes from Sandy Lane golf course.It is close to an upmarket residential area but retains a 'local feel'.The house sits upon a ridge .Looking out from the deck is a spectacular view of the ocean and West Coast. The Villa is very private, surrounded by tropical plants and trees, it is situated on its own plot of land, and retains a peaceful, calm and relaxing atmosphere. Northlight is not in the 'tourist area' ,but a short drive will bring you to restaurants, beaches, supermarket - complimentary membership to a full size swimming pool/beach bar/and restaurant..

Other Activities: snorkeling/diving, jet ski's, fitness centre/gym

Golf: Sandy Lane is the closest Golf Course a few minutes drive, Westmoreland Golf Corse , about 15 minutes drive, both fairly expensive.

Barbados Golf Club abd Rockley about 25 minutes drive,- both very affordable.
