Hastings Villa Rental Photos and Description
Spacious, quiet and very central: your home from home. Family friendly; Secure

Quiet and private - located on a ridge at the end of a no-through road, looking out to sea. Fantastic 180 degree view over trees to the sea beyond. Veranda/master bedroom look towards the sea, while the other two bedrooms overlook the pool. Beaches, golf, cricket, sailing, water-sports, shops and restaurants nearby.

Many of our guests are return visitors to Barbados and enjoy the experience of feeling that they live here, rather than just visiting. Our house offers all the comforts of home and is very central for the best beaches and the main entertainment areas.

Whole house, including the veranda, netted against mosquitoes. Spacious, light and cool - 1 900 sq ft - representing excellent value for money: why pay twice the price or more, when the beach is only 5 minutes drive away and you can enjoy a beautiful sea view from our breezy veranda?

Large pool immediately in front of the house, set in tropical gardens. The relaxing environment, pool and stunning view mean that you may choose to simply stay at home some days.

Small select, secure residential (non-tourist) development with full-time gardeners and night-time security guard. Extensive, well kept grounds.

Very central - for beaches, entertainment, golf, sailing, supermarkets, St Lawrence Gap, Garrison, Oistins and Bridgetown.

Our friendly agent will meet you at the house on arrival: concierge service for car rental, airport pick up, booking events and travel advice.

The listing description was accurate and Michael was a very gracious and obliging owner to deal with throughout out stay. The property was clean and well maintained. Michael and the Property Management team gave attentive and very good customer service. I would certainly rent this property again and also recommend it to my family and friends. Michael supplied us with several pages of suggestions for attractions to visit, local beaches, recommended restaurants, and much more information for our visit to Barbados. Jean Simpson Canada

We are a family with 3 older teenagers, having visited Barbados a number of times before we found the house at Gun Site ideal. The community of houses are quiet and the gardens very well maintained. The house provided plenty of space for us all, situated near the pool( we were usually the only ones using it) and able to enjoy beautiful views of Bridgetown and the sea from the back of the house.
A short drive to the coast provided many places to eat and the supermarket, all very convenient. we visited many beaches around the island, driving is very easy we used bing maps rather than the tourist map which shortened many journeys. We each had many highlights, a catameran trip to swim with turtles, 3 Fridays at Oistens fish night, surfing at Miami beach. We hiked with the Barbados National Trust, lucky to experience a moon hike at full moon.and watching the race horses from the Garrison swimming in the sea.
Michael was extremely helpful at all times, We booked very late so a scramble for flights shifted our dates, Michael was very understanding and courteous.
I hope our family holidays will continue to be this successful in the future!

We arrived on a late flight and were met by Shaun, the taxi driver used by the agents. He was really helpful and even came with us to the supermarket after we had checked in at the house, as we were unsure of driving around at night on our first evening. The house is well represented by the photographs on the site and we found it very easy to settle in. Some really good beaches are very nearby (a car is recommended). I'm keen on beach walking and particularly enjoyed going down to Carlisle Bay in the late afternoon - it is a mile long from one end to the other and the sand is flat and firm: ideal for walking. It's also a good location for snorkelling, as there is a marine reserve.

Restaurants and supermarkets are nearby. Michael provided a list of recommendations and we especially liked 'Shakers' in Browne's Gap - we went there twice during our stay. There are also some good family restaurants in The Gap. We also went to the drive-in cinema one evening - again on Michael's recommendation, which was a great experience and I would recommend it.

The house was cool and breezy and we didn't need to use the airconditioning. The pool and gardens were well maintained and the site was very quiet - I think a lot of the residents were away overseas during the holiday period, which was great for us.

A very relaxing stay and a great way to escape the winter weather for a couple of weeks.
Owner's Response: We pleased that you enjoyed your stay so much. A number of guests have commented about Shaun's helpfulness; our agents recommend that he meets guests at the airport, so that they can get to the house easily, the first time. They can also arrange for a rental car to be waiting at the house for you when you arrive.

Nice place to stay

This house was big enough for the whole family and had air conditioning!! It was overlooking the sea but you will need a car to get about. Very quiet and with a beautiful view. For us it was ideally placed on the island, near our friends and relatives, the Garrison racecourse and a 7 minute drive to the Yacht Club. Has everything you need.

The property was clean but we hit a bank holiday and did have difficulty getting the maid service but it was sorted with a quick phone call.

I would highly recommend this property
Owner's Response: We look forward to welcoming you and your family again at our house. Michael

Home away from home

We were a family group of 4 and have visited Barbados a number of times. Michael's house was the best place we have stayed in so far: he was very helpful with all the preliminaries before we arrived and we were also in contact with his agents, who were helpful and pleasant and were there to check us in when we arrived. The villa is really nice, it is spacious and airy and had everything that we needed. As we like to cook, we asked for an extra set of kitchen knives and these were provided the same day. The view from the house is fanastic and I think you have difficulty finding a better one. We really enjoyed sitting on the veranda at all times of the day. The pool is just in front of the house - as shown in the photos. Our children liked to go to Accra Beach most days, which was less than 5 minutes drive and to St Lawrence Gap ... it cost $20 Barbados for a taxi home, so we didn't have to go and pick them up. Supermarkets, restaurants etc are all nearby, A really great holiday!
Owner's Response: Dear Jane,

I'm very pleased that you and your family enjoyed your stay in our house. As it is our second home, and we visit twice a year, we try and ensure that everything that we like to use is also available for our guests. Our agents are happy to arrange for any additional items that guests may feel that they would like, in the kitchen for example, as the chances are that these will also be appreciated by others.

I agree that the location and view from our house are really special: I often think of this on cold winter days, as it gives me a boost ... along with thinking about my early morning walks on the beach.

Michael

Beautiful property

Ridgeview is a light and airy house which was very welcome during a hot and humid two weeks in August.The house is well appointed and we very quickly felt at home. Our party consisted of five adults and there was plenty of space for all of us.
The central location meant that we were not far away from the south coast beaches, restaurants and nightlife or Bridgetown.
The pool was ideal for lazy days and most of the time we had it to ourselves.
Overall an excellent property and a great holiday!

LOVELY HILL TOP HOME - UNBEATABLE LOCATION

  • Submitted: Mar 31, 2012
  • Stayed: Mar 2012
Hello Michael,

I really want to thank you for allowing us to share your lovely hilltop home. We saw a lot of the island during our stay but did not see a location we preferred to yours.

There was a mixture of family and friends staying for differing periods during the four weeks we rented your house. We always enjoyed returning to Ridgeview House and during my few days alone I felt safe there.

We thought of it as a cottage comparable to our summer cottage on a lake in northern Ontario, airy and easy to keep clean.

We would like to return for the same month next year, and I hope I can negotiate some dates (and rates) with you.

Thank you again Michael for all your assistance in making our stay in Barbados so wonderful.

Cheers and best wishes,

Guest from Canada

Hello Michael - We were a family group of 6 adults visiting family and friends in Barbados. The house was perfect for our needs. It was very comfortable, spacious and clean. We used the back terrace often, the view off the ridge is very beautiful. Thank you. Canada

We had a great time, your place was perfect. We were a family of 5 (2 adults and 3 children) and the house had everything we needed. We are regular visitors to Barbados and will certainly be using your lovely home again sometime in the future. Many thanks. UK
