Overview

About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms, 5 Baths, (Sleeps 10/12)

Weston House is a beautiful luxury house, just 50 feet from the beach on the west coast of the island with fabulous views of the Caribbean Sea. Relax on the pool deck with a long cool drink, or walk through the garden to stroll along the white sands of the beach and dip your toes in the tranquil blue waters of the Caribbean.

The fantastic housekeeper will welcome you upon your arrival, and will provide you with a relaxing and unforgettable vacation. She will treat your palate to both local and worldwide cuisine, comments of which can be found in the visitors book in the house. Her local knowledge is invaluable, and no task or request is too much, whether it is a private yacht charter or big game fishing to the local bus service, she will help you find it.

This tranquil setting is an ideal location for private parties and weddings (by special arrangement).

A full range of water sports is available 200 yards up the beach. Within easy reach there are many first class restaurants, both on the west and south coasts. You will be only a five minute drive from an 18 hole championship golf course, rated number 34 in North America. The towns of Holetown and Speightstown are within easy reach to get the real flavor of island life.

Weston House will truly give you the feeling of a millionaire lifestyle, with its private surroundings and superb quality.

To Whom It May Concern:



My husband, stepson, friends and I had the pleasure of staying at the Weston House from July 7 - 13. It was one of the most incredible weeks that we spent anywhere. The house is absolutely beautiful and the location is magnificent. We could not believe that we had the opportunity to stay there.



Your housekeeper/cook Miss Deb is phenomenal and a great person. Her spirit reaches out and touches and holds you. We had the opportunity to also meet her sister Sheri who was helping her and together they help make our stay a totally unforgettable adventure. So much so that we are already planning our return for December/January 2012/2013. We have spoken non-stop to others and showed pictures. We have others now looking forward to going there with us or with a group of their own.



Every moment spent in that house an the surroundings is cherished.



Thank you and thank you.

Perfect Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the Weston House from April 1-8, 2017, and found the house in excellent condition, spotlessly clean, and perfect for a multigenerational gathering. The pool is perfect for floating and staying cool, and the ocean literally right outside the gate is beautiful. Deborah and Wendy were wonderful, and they attended to our every need. They are happy to serve up fresh fish from the market just a block away making the best food on the island served on the veranda with lovely evening views of the ocean. It is a pleasure to give a big THANK YOU to Deborah who stayed up to greet us at the house at 2 AM upon arrival as our flight had been delayed by 4 hours. Was that a huge relief!!

Things to do that we all loved: 1) Snorkeled out behind the house as well as rented a private boat from Rupert (friend of Deborah) who picked us up behind the house in his boat and we saw turtles, a shipwreck, many fish, stingrays, and coral, 2) Went to Andromeda Garden on the west side followed by a picnic at a park near the Soup Bowl and watched the surfers (very, very beautiful), 3) Went to the North End to Animal Flower Cave and hiked along the cliffs watching the waves crash violently against rocks followed by a trip to Little Bay to see the Blow Holes (Very Cool!), 4) Hung around the Weston House and drank several cases of lovely Rose', Chablis, Red Burgundy, and Rhones purchased from Wine World just 10 minutes from the house, 5) and to make all Caribbean Trips complete we visited the Mount Gay Rum factory and really enjoyed that as well!

Barbados is a lovely island with beautiful water and plentiful fish. It is very safe and we found all the people friendly and gracious. There are all the amenities to make for a stress free vacationing. And what was really surprisingly wonderful was that there were NO MOSQUITOS on the island anywhere. None of our group got bitten by any insects at any time which is quite different from most of our trips to the Caribbean. Finally, the best place to see the monkeys was at the Weston house as they seemed to drop in for happy hour most days. Usually we saw a couple of them, but a couple times there were 4-5.

This was a great trip! I would love to come back! Thanks again, Deborah!!!

Not To Be Missed

  • 5 of 5

The five star reviews are accurate. My group was 5 active seniors that live the good life in Pennsylvania. All were pleased with every aspect of Weston House. The house easily accomidated 5 couples. Bedrooms are large and all sitting areas comfortably seats more than 10 people. Deborah is a 5 star cook and her helpers keep the house, sheets, towels and your laundry clean every day. The house has all of the beach/pool toys and chairs. The kitchen and wet bar is well stocked.

"Pinch me, I must be dreaming!"

  • 5 of 5

The title of my review is exactly how my family and I felt as we entered Weston House last month. From the moment we pulled into the gated drive and walked through the arched doorway we felt as though we had stepped into a heavenly castle in a magnificent dream! We were greeted with open arms by Deborah and Wendy who both made us feel as though we were arriving home after an extended absence. Their warmth and hospitality were genuine and contagious.

The house itself is absolutely stunning and the photos can only just begin to portray the reality of its design, function and breathtaking location. The views through the house, across the pool and garden area and right into the horizon of the Caribbean are enough to keep you mesmerized throughout your vacation. The wide open layout of the living and dining spaces allow you to lounge and dine under cover but fully exposed to the island breezes and sounds of the birds and the sea. Our entire family enjoyed lounging around the pool throughout the day with occasional jaunts to kayak in the sea or snorkel above the small reefs just off the private beach in our backyard.

Come lunch and dinner time the ladies would summon us up to the outdoor dining area and serve up the most delicious menus of fresh meats, fish, chicken or pork accompanied by all the best vegetables and trimmings. If we didn't feel like shopping for the groceries that day Deborah or Wendy were more than happy to handle it for us.

Water sports were handy just up the beach and we had jet skis brought to us right on our beach where we could all take turns riding the waves for hours on end.

Several local bars are within walking distance including Marcy's Bar and John Moore's among others. I cant say enough about the local people and how warm and welcoming they all were. In fact one rainy night we had a blowout as we drove up to Marcy's for some refills and no sooner had I stopped the van to survey the tire damage, that there were several local folks happily volunteering to change the tire and get us going again. Truly guardian angels of the night!

I'd be remiss if I didn't mention the owners, our hosts for the week, Anna and Graham. From the first inquiry and interaction, both of them were like old friends but professional in all respects. Every question was answered quickly, any issue encountered was resolved immediately and every one of their suggestions was spot on! Sadly I'm out of space now but suggest you book your stay immediately!

Barbados Perfection

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a wonderful stay at the Weston House. The house, property, and location were all truly spectacular. The house was spacious, comfortable for relaxing, lounging about, and had everything you can ask for. The beach was beautiful and we spent hours daily swimming, snorkeling, paddle boarding (we had rented paddle boards and delivered to the house) and walking the beach. When not at the beach, we relaxed at the pool well into the evening hours. We had rented a car for the week and drove all over the island exploring; we were happy that the Weston a House gates were always visible day or night and that we always found our way back without difficulty. Many reviewes mention Deborah and staff, and for good reason. They are wonderful, and the meals are very special. We always looked forward to whatever they would prepare, and were never disappointed by the very flavorful meals. We have traveled all over the world, and have rented many a villa, and I can say this place deserves the 5 stars all around. I would come back here without hesitation.

A perfect vacation

  • 5 of 5

Three couples had a wonderful vacation at Weston House. We chose Weston House because of all the favorable reviews and our vacation could not have been better. Deborah and her staff are the heartbeat of the villa -- always asking if there was anything we needed and what specialties we wanted for meals. We arranged for pre-stocking the groceries and she even arranged that perfectly as we only had to go to the grocery store once for some replacements. Her desserts are amazing. Special note -- the fish market is a short stroll on the beach so you can get the fresh catch (along with a bag of flying fish) daily. She always had a bowl of fresh cut fruit in the fridge for us too.

We did not rent a car because taxis and public transportation are both convenient and reasonable. We were really glad we didn't because we seldom left the villa, except to take a short ride to Holetown on the bus for a little shopping. The pool area and gazebo were well used and there was plenty of space for everyone to have some privacy if they wished.

This was a great vacation in a great villa with a great staff -- we can't wait to return!

Our own little spot of paradise

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned to a very cold UK after what we can only describe as the most amazing 2 weeks. 10 of us ranging from age 12 up to 76 set of to Barbados not really knowing what to expect, all of the correspondence beforehand with Anna and Graham had been prompt, friendly and really helpful, the images of the house looked stunning and the beach looked idilic - we were beginning to wonder if Weston House was too good to be true.

We were met by Deborah, Juliette and Maureen who were friendly, and welcoming, as the door opened the smell of Deborah's cooking just left us with no doubt this was going to be exactly what we had hoped and more!

The house itself is stunning, the views from the balcony are breathtaking especially during a sunset. The rooms are clean, the beds are comfortable, and the bathrooms spacious. The outdoor area was once again more than we could have hoped for, the pool was wonderful, plenty of sun loungers for us all, and the gazebo offered that little bit of shade when the sun hit is hottest at lunchtime.

We have been to Barbados previously, however we had never experienced the culture and the food in the way we were able to this time, each meal was freshly prepared, we ate flying fish, red snapper, chicken, beef, white fish, a range of vegetables, fruits and cocktails (rum punch and pina colada are a must) all with a caribbean twist.

The beach was great for snorkelling, or just for paddling, we walked along to find some water sports and would highly recommend Gibbs Bay if you like a really sandy spot to swim in with very few rocks. The reefs at the bottom of the garden gave the fish lovers in our family some amazing sights.

All in all our too good to be true thoughts were totally wrong - this holiday was described by all of us as almost perfect - something for everyone, we felt we had our own little 5 star hotel, thank you Deborah for your hospitality and your amazing cooking, thank you Anna and Graham for allowing us the opportunity to spend time in your beautiful spot in paradise. Special Memories that will last forever. Jo, Keith, Lucy, & Abbie Benford - Sean, Maria, Charley, & Harry Turner, Dave Turner, & Barbara Westley x
