BEAUTIFUL SPACIOUS VILLA, SLEEPS 8, PRIVATE POOL,TERRACES & GARDENS

Holders Villa Rental Photos and Description

Self Catering, 4 En Suite Bedrooms, A/C, Tropical Gardens, Gazebo

Sugar Ridge is a beautiful spacious 4 bedroom villa built in 2007. It sleeps upto 8 guests in large bright, airy & comfortable bedrooms. The villa's large living areas both inside and outside provide more than enough space for all guests to enjoy together or to find a quiet spot. The private pool is surrounded by a Sun Deck & Gazebo. There are ample seated areas and sun loungers with comfy cushions. A super place to entertain, relax or prepare a meal on the BBQ.

Sugar Ridge has been carefully designed by a well known local architect to provide a high standard of accommodation. Its design incorporates large louvre doors which open fully from the lounge & dining areas onto individual terraces, overlooking the pool & gardens. This provides a real feel of outdoor living & is ideal for al fresco dining. The positioning of the villa enables it to make the most of the fresh invigorating breezes blowing in from the east which help keep the villa cool. The large windows & high tray ceilings together with the tasteful décor enhance the light & airy comfortable rooms.

The villa is situated in a cul-de-sac & is totally private, tucked away in a residential village location in the parish of St James. The villa is fully enclosed with mature tropical landscaped gardens. From the first floor you can catch glimpses of the Caribbean Sea & surrounding country side. The villa offers guests the opportunity to fully relax & enjoy the outdoor living experience.

The famous Sandy Lane golf course is located approx half a mile away and a 5 minute drive will bring you to the coast road with its numerous beaches & amenities, including the famous Paynes Bay. A car is recommended to fully explore the island.

Holetown is located approx 2 miles from the villa & provides duty free shopping, excellent restaurants, bars, cafés, supermarkets, banks, post office & taxi rank. There is also a chattel village with craft shops, art gallery & café. The new Limegrove life style centre provides designer stores, restaurants, cafes, bar, & 2 screen cinema showing all the latest films.

Frequent buses depart Holetown for many parts of the island including Bridgetown. There is also a taxi rank within Holetown.

Golf: The Sandy Lane Golf Course is a 5 minute drive from the villa, offering superb 9 and 18 hole golf courses.

The Royal Westmorland Golf Course is 15 minutes away.

The owners of Sugar Ridge take great care in maintaining the villa's high standard of accommodation and offer a professional service to all guests to ensure their stay at the villa is a great experience. Sugar Ridge has many repeat guests who return year after year.

Guestbook comments from the owner
" We arranged our holiday at Sugar Ridge to celebrate a 60th birthday and a 30th birthday in February 2013 and we were looking for a luxurious location in Barbados with very comfortable accomodation. Having spoken by telephone to the owners Dave and Katharine prior to booking we knew we were in for a treat and we were certainly not let down. The location of the villa in a small village was ideal for us and being just a short drive from many beaches and attractions it suited the whole of our party. We can only describe the property as a real delight with every home comfort accounted for and by far the very best villa we have ever rented. The owners are rightly very proud of their property and do everything possible to ensure holidaymakers have a wonderful time. We will certainly look to return and have already started recommending to friends "



Would just like to thank you once again for making our stay one of the most memorable holidays we have ever had. Please say hello to Phylis for us



Kindest regards

My wife & I have been visiting Barbados for the past 9 years. We just adore the island, the slower pace of life & the friendly & helpful people. We are always discovering places to see, things to do. My parents & ancestors came from Barbados. My grandfather owned the land on which Sugar Ridge now stands & grew sugar cane here. However, in more recent years the land stood empty & we thought after all the hard work my grandfather put into the land this was sad. Then an opportunity arose for my wife & I to build on the land. We were fortunate to be introduced to Aubrey, one of the top architects in Barbados who together with his partner have become our very good friends. He put so much thought & care into his design to create really spacious & comfortable inside & outside living areas. Sugar Ridge is a real home from home.

David Blackman & Katharine Armstrong-Blackman purchased this villa in 2007

Sugar Ridge offers an opportunity to experience real Barbados life and is well located to explore this beautiful island. A place to unwind, enjoy the outdoor life, meals on the BBQ, breakfast under the Gazebo. Read a book, sip rum punch on the sun deck, or gently swing in the hammock before cooling off in the pool. We’re still amazed by the garden’s beautiful plants, colourful flowers, wildlife, & occasional monkey. At Sugar Ridge we have shared many great times with family & friends & have wonderful memories. We are sure you will too. Many guests choose Sugar Ridge & return year after year

Sugar Ridge is so spacious & comfortable, even with 8 guests there is always a quiet spot to sit and relax. The gardens are just beautiful and big enough to stroll around in or for the children to run & explore in complete safety. The villa always feels cool with such wonderful breezes blowing from the east. Barbados offers so much in terms of peace & tranquility, wonderful un-crowded beaches, great food & entertainment. We love the fact that each month there is something happening, festivals, shows, concerts & sporting events. There really is so much to please all age groups. We can have as relaxing or eventful a holiday as we want.

Sugar Ridge is a fantastic, affordable villa. It easily hosted our party of 4 adults and 2 children. It has a spacious outside terrace, which is undercover that provided an airy extra living / dining space. All the bedrooms are large and each has its own bathroom. The pool is a good size and there are plenty of sun loungers. It is located in a Bajan village setting, but it is safe and not far from a supermarket, Holders Polo Club & Paynes beach. The owners provided a taxi (Winston) from the airport, which was very helpful and Phyllis greeted us and showed us how everything worked. We were able to call on both at anytime for free from the telephone. (Wi-Fi is also connected in the villa) We would definitely recommend this villa to our friends.

OVERWHELMINGLY BEAUTIFUL VILLA

  • 5 of 5
I recently stayed at Sugar Ridge Villa in beautiful Barbados.I was very impressed with the beautiful landscaped gardens and the pristine way in which the pool was kept .The villa has 4 large airy bedrooms each one with its own separate bathroom.There isn't much need for the air condition because of the breeze which blows through the villa.I am originally from Barbados and would recommend sugar ridge to anyone who is interested in vacationing there .It was very accommodating for my large group of 9 people.I can't wait to vacation there again.The pictures don't do this property much justice it is even more beautiful in person.

FANTASTIC TIME HAD BY ALL - THANK YOU

  • 5 of 5
We booked this amazing place for a family holiday and to celebrate our daughter and son-in-law's wedding in Barbados . Dave and Katharine were there to meet us when we arrived and were at the end of the phone if we needed anything. The villa has everything you could need and more . The rooms are all spacious and comfortable ( and all en-suite) . The grounds/gardens beautiful . Pool fantastic. We could not have chosen a better place to stay. We did not hire a car during our stay but had Winston, the taxi driver, to take us wherever we needed to go - no job too big or small for him ( he even transported guests to the wedding and arranged the cars for the bride/brdesmaids)
Thanks also to Phylis , the housekeeper, who came in a couple of times during our stay to clean , change linen etc. A truely lovely lady .
We intend to return to this beautiful island in the future and would love to stay at Sugar Ridge again.
Thank you Dave & Katharine

  • 5 of 5
This was our family's third visit to this villa, Dave and Katharine really do think of everything. The garden and pool are very well kept, and is extremely private. Phyllis the housekeeper is a Barbados legend, She keeps the place spotless. The island has so many different places to visit, Crane beach voted one of the ten best in the world is my favourate. Can't recommend this villa more highly.

The picures do not do this Villa justice. It is far better . It is both close to the shopping district and the waterfront. I strongly suggest "High Tide Watersports" for diving.They don't run a "cattle boat" like other area dive shops.
Once again I would like to thank Dave and Katharine for letting us use this Grand Villa.
Sincerely
Pat and John
