Pristine white sand beaches fully equipped with lounge chairs and water sport options are within a 5-8 minute drive.

Because there is so much to see and do in Barbados we highly recommend hiring a car so that your experience here is optimized. However if you prefer we can recommend a reliable taxi or chauffeur service.

About Brian Newsam

Hi, my name is Brian, I am originally from Montreal, but lived in Barbados for 5 years during which I fulfilled a lifelong dream of building two wonderful homes and living in the Caribbean. I own a renovations company and enjoy architecture and design. I am an avid traveller and love to discover new places and have new experiences.

Why Brian Newsam chose The Rock

I designed and built this property because I was inspired by the incredible beauty of the land on which we chose to build.

What makes this villa unique

The house is cool and breezy. The outdoor living is truly special and allows for much of your time to be spent outside enjoying the beautiful view in total comfort.

Breathtaking views of the jungle and ocean

  • 5 of 5

Waking up to this view from the balcony is something you never tire of - it really is so amazing.

The villa is lovely, spacious, clean and well stocked. Beach Towels are provided and there is a hair dryer which all go to saving space in the luggage. The villa was perfect for our needs, tastefully decorated, clean and comfortable. For us, the best part was the outdoor space, where we spent most of our time. The beds were comfortable, with extra pillows and blankets if we needed.

We were extremely well looked after by the Villa Manager met who met us on arrival and when departing. Natalie was at the end of the phone at any time should we need her.

I would not hesitate in recommending this holiday property to anyone. It is extremely well managed, and was a real treat for our holiday. I will definitely be coming back to stay here on my next trip.
