About Rick Layne

What started as a childhood dream turned into reality when the owner's built this glorious Villa with all the promises to give visitors a 'home away from home' .

Rick Layne purchased this villa in 2012

Why Rick Layne chose Christ Church

Located in the South Coast, Villa Riana Barbados sits in a quiet, family friendly neighborhood and is the perfect balance between relaxation and enjoying all the fun Barbados has to offer.

What makes this villa unique

Barbados is the most Eastern island in the Caribbean chain. . Barbadians or Bajans (as we know ourselves) are very accommodating and enjoy good company and good friends. Travel around Barbados and stop in at any of our colourful 'Rum Shops' and meet a Bajan.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Brand new and sparkling clean. Good location just a short bus or taxi to everything! Easy walk to some good eats and beach. On site parking was a breeze. Lovely A/C bedrooms and nice kitchen. Coffee on the terrace in the am is a dream. Would easily recommend this to a friend.

Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

Left Villa Riana at the end of January after spending the month of January staying in the two bedroomed unit overlooking the pool. Had a great time. The location is very good, with easy walking to the shops, the small beach and the bus route. Johnathon,the manager,was very helpful on our arrival and Rick, the owner, was also helpful when he arrived. Cleaning and linen changes were done on a regular basis(Thank you,Elsa). We rented a car for a portion of our time and also used the local transport (ZRs). Other guests used Rick's taxi service and he was also helpful in arranging excursions. We enjoyed the fish fry in Oistens several times (recommend Uncle Georges) which is only a few minutes walk past the supermarket. Massey supermarket has a free shopper's shuttle to take you and your groceries home which we used when we did not have a car. Also recommend Surfer's Cafe which is on the opposite side of the main road just before the supermarket, great lattes and reasonable prices. Overall very happy with our choice and would definitely stay there again. Had a great holiday on Barbados.

Good times

  • 5 of 5

The villa is exactly as it is in the pictures. It's close to everything on the South coast and far enough that it's quiet at night. I would definitely stay here again!

Excellent Choice

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at Villa Maria for the month of February (2014). We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and found that Villa Maria was a clean, friendly and well-run establishment. While we had booked the cottage for our stay, Rick (the owner) upgraded us for free to the one bedroom unit for the first ten days as it wasn't rented. Rick usually lives on the property but had rented his unit for part of our stay. He was at the Villa more than once a day, so he was easily available (and we had his cell number). When Rick wasn't available, Jonathan (the property manager) and his girlfriend were just a phone call away and addressed issues promptly. Our "big" issue was the lack of a can opener in the cottage - and one was delivered quickly.

The Villa is located in a quiet subdivision and as noted by others is close to Oistins and fairly close to St. Lawrence gap, to which we usually walked one way and rode the "ZR" home. We felt completely safe walking the streets day or night and met only one pan handler - who was very polite - during our stay. Do not miss the Friday fish fry & party at Oistins. Chillin' and Grillin' became our favorite restaurant.

The one bedroom unit at Villa Maria is spacious, well-equipped and relaxing. It has a front porch which we used often, especially for happy hour. The cottage is smaller with the main seating area being a love seat. There is an outdoor seating area, but it is in the flow of warm air from the Villa's air conditioning. and the view is of the back wall of the villa. This didn't pose a problem as we carried our coffee (mornings) or drinks (happy hour) to the pool where there is plenty of seating and a nice view. The cottage too is well-equipped and we really enjoyed our stay there.

All in all, Villa Maria was a great choice as a place to stay and Barbados - especially the people - was a real treat. Thanks to Rick, Jonathan and all the "hired help" for making our stay so enjoyable.

Great villa

  • 4 of 5

We were a party of 6 who stayed at Villa Maria Barbados for 14 days in February, 2013. The villa was home-away-from-home: spacious, clean, secure with all modern conveniences. The owners, Rick and Angie were more than accommodating to our needs. From the beginning Angie was prompt in answering our inquires.

Villa Maria was the ideal location for us, very quiet neighbourhood, just a short walk to transportation and locations such as Oistins for groceries and the fish-fry, St Lawrence Gap and one bus into Bridgetown. Every member of our group felt relaxed and at home, we would wholeheartedly recommend this villa.

We stayed at Villa Maria for a week in Jan2013 with our two children (11 and 9yrs) and it was fantastic. We stayed in the executive suite and it is beautiful - the pictures don't come close to doing it justice! Rick and Angie were wonderful hosts, made us feel very at home and when our flight home was delayed by 5 hours made sure we were not put out on the curb but rather invited us to continue to use the facilities and gave us a place to freshen up before we finally went to the airport. The location is ideal - a short walk to Oistins and the yummy fish market, the dock at Oistins is a great place to see the sea turtles and a short walk to 3+ beaches - one where we saw monkeys several times!!! Barbados is definitely our favorite Caribbean destination and we highly recommend Villa Maria!
