About David Blackman & Katharine Armstrong-Blackman
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.

Why David Blackman & Katharine Armstrong-Blackman chose Holders
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
What makes this villa unique
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.
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
