About Doris Marshall
Hi I'm Doris. I'm a co-owner of this house, with my husband Robert, my bother-in-law Paul and his wife Katherine. We are all from Canada, though Robert and Katherine are Citizens by Descent of Barbados. This house will be our future retirement home, but for now we welcome you to come, stay awhile and enjoy!
Doris Marshall purchased this Villa in 2015
Why Doris Marshall chose Fairy Valley Rock
This property is located in Wilcox, the area of Barbados where my father-in-law grew up. We discovered this house and because of its location on the breezy ridge of Wilcox Hill and its spectacular views, we decided it was the perfect spot. After extensive renovations we have made it into a home we are proud of and look forward to sharing it with others.
What makes this Villa unique
The Caribbean breeze flows through this open concept home. The bedrooms are air conditioned and ceiling fans and screened windows are located in every room. Additional floor fans are on hand as well. You are less than 5 minutes by car to the beach, supermarket, bank, restaurants and the Friday Night Oistins Fish Fry. If you prefer to just relax beside the infinity pool, you need only open your bedroom door.

This is the PERFECT vacation home for groups of friends or families looking to experience Barbados in absolute comfort. The pictures do not do this house justice, it was HUGE!!! We rented this house with two other couples, and we never felt like we got in each others ways. Every room has it own en-suite which was a huge selling point, and every room was impeccable decorated and clean. The pool was absolutely perfect for when we wanted a break from the beaches, we even had a Margarita party! Katherine responded to all my inquiries in a timely manor, and made renting this property effortless. June the property manager was amazing, and had cold beers and rum waiting for us when we arrived. We always felt completely safe and relaxed in the neighborhood, and would even get visits from some of the cute horses and goats from the farm close by. There are a few bus stops close to the house, but we found the buses weren't super reliable, I would suggest renting a car or cabbing for your transportation needs. That being said, the drive into Oistins was less than 5 minutes, and very easy to get to. Being able to come back to this hidden oasis after a long day at the beach was a real treat! I would highly recommend this rental to anyone looking to visit Barbados.
Danielle, it was our pleasure to be able to host you and your friends. We wanted to create a comfortable and welcoming space for ourselves as well as for incoming guests. It's very gratifying to hear that we accomplished our objectives. We look forward to hosting you again on your next Barbados adventure.
Great house for a family or group of friends
Very nice, clean and up to date house on a quiet street. Good location - easy to get into Oistins and access to both east and west coast beaches. The pool was great for the kids. The only thing to flag is that it's close to the airport so sometimes you can hear the planes taking off / landing. That didn't interfere at all with our enjoyment, but you can hear them, sometimes at night / very early morning. On the plus side, it was a very short ride for our 6:30am flight! The property manager, June, was very responsive and dealing with the owners was equally pleasant and easy. Definitely recommend!
Thank you for your positive words!! Happy to hear that you and your family enjoyed your stay. We're glad departing planes didn't interfere with your enjoyment. Our decision to install a/c in all the bedrooms makes for a comfortable sleep when you close the windows for the night. :) Feel free to come back and visit any time!
A group of six adults stayed at this beautiful house for 11 nights in February. The owners were very easy to work with and answered all inquiries in a prompt fashion. The house itself is great with lots of room for the six of us, comfortable furnishings and beds and lots of kitchen equipment and utensils to cook food yourself. The location is good too close to beaches, restaurants and grocery stores. Any issues were handled immediately by the property manager June who was always just a phone call away if needed. All in all a great experience in a great country from start to finish. I would recommend this villa to anyone.
It's very rewarding as owners to learn that our guests appreciate the efforts we have made in creating an inviting and comfortable holiday rental destination. We too love Barbados so we're happy to hear you agree and enjoyed your stay! Come visit us anytime!
Don't Miss Out on Barbados!
As every other review has stated -- this house is awesome. Big place with lots of windows that open to keep the air moving and tons of comfortable seating for lounging or gaming for the brief rainstorms that occurred. Pool area is awesome, there were 4 loungers and 4 of us and we used them throughout the day as well as in the evening for star gazing. The quality of the dishes and cooking pans is quite high, which we appreciated as we liked to prepare a couple of meals at the house each day. The huge amount of ice trays in the freezer also a great touch. We didn't rent a car as we figured we could work with the huge amount of taxis and the public ZR system. The house is located on a quiet street the access to which is the middle of a switch back on a hill. You can go up the hill to the main road (which we did the first couple times) or down the hill just past Mikes Mini Mart and catch the ZR busses there. It's about 1.5 km either way. We personally had a great experience with the ZR, it's cheap at $2bbd per person and you can get all the way up the west coast to Bridgetown fairly quickly. But be aware they will jam you in there like sardines if you are willing to get in a packed one haha. We also met some very friendly cab drivers to get home a couple of the nights and liked one guy so much we had him do an island tour later in our trip with his roomy van cab (with AC) for $35US an hour. When we return to Barbados in the future we will most likely rent a car now that we are familiar with the island. The left hand traffic and many traffic circles could be intimidating to some folks. The roads are fairly narrow and some are in questionable shape but I never once felt in danger walking on the side of the road -- and we did so a lot. Incredibly considerate drivers from our experience, we were even picked up by strangers on multiple occasions and dropped off at the bus stop we were headed for.
I would highly recommend staying here. Owners and house manager are very professional. We stayed for 10 days and there was a mid week house and pool cleaning which was a nice touch.
If you want to try surfing I highly recommend Zeds which is located just a few km south of the house. Chicken Rita's is a must for a dinner as well, also on the south coast, We never had a bad a meal anywhere we went. Miami beach is perfect. Enjoy your trip!! We sure did.
We were thrilled to host you and we are happy that our home factored into such a positive first time experience in Barbados. Thank you for insights on public transport and restaurants. This kind of information is always helpful for future and returning guests. Feel free to come back and visit our home anytime.
This is a beautiful property. The pictures do not do it justice. We travelled with our family of 4 and had a ton of room. Each bedroom having it’s own bathroom is an excellent feature of the home. The kitchen is fully equipped. The only thing I might suggest is providing some Tupperware containers. June the property manager is absolutely wonderful. She made sure that we had everything we needed. Mary the cleaning lady did a fabulous job. Doris was absolutely wonderful to deal with in scheduling the home and answering all my questions. We were so thrilled with this property and will be staying there again.
Thank you Leah for your positive review. We worked hard during our renovations to create a comfortable holiday space. It’s gratifying to hear that we succeeded. Good call on the Tupperware. Sounds like you and your family enjoyed cooking, with leftovers to spare. We will welcome you and your family back anytime you choose to visit.
Beautiful island, amazing house!
We spent Christmas week at this beautiful location in Barbados. Katherine was extremely helpful in all of our planning and June made sure that we didn't have any worries while we were on the island. They even had a Christmas tree up for us! The house itself is extremely spacious and very comfortable. Although it is close to both Oistins and the airport, it is on a quiet street with lots of privacy. We thoroughly enjoyed starting and ending every day in the pool. We did rent a car and found it quite easy to get around Barbados and explore. If you are interested in surfing, go to Cotton Bay, which is just a short drive from the house. You will surf every day with dozens of sea turtles. We highly recommend renting this house for your stay in Barbados! We hope to be back again!
Thank you for your positive feedback. We are always thrilled to hear that our guests had a wonderful time! Barbados speaks for itself, but it's very rewarding to hear that we contributed to your Barbados experience. Come again, soon!
