Built in 2007, Whitewood Drive is a modern three bedroom villa, finished to very high standards and with large open plan ground floor leading onto its own private patio and swimming pool. The Villa is sited within the highly regarded Bakers Wood community, located on the beautiful West Coast of Barbados.
Its an easy space to live in..
All Three Bedrooms (1 en suite), bathroom, kitchen, utility & living spaces are on one level.
The only steps lead down to the secluded pool and patio area. Very private and very safe for kids. There is no need to constantly go out for a good day. There are some great days to be had staying at your Bajan home and sitting round the pool. The Villa benefits from excellent Wi-Fi, with a strong signal from the front porch to the back deck and pool.

Gas Double Cooker & Oven, loads of pots pans and cutlery (Can't you tell a bloke's writing this!) Food mixer,.. a coffee thing? There's also gas "Barby" in the garage.
Our Utility Area next to the kitchen is blessed with an American style twin tub,top loading washer & dryer.
At the rear:
Pool + Pool Deck & loungers: Your own pool. Not shared. Not communal, like so many in Barbados turn out to be. Our pool is yours and yours alone to enjoy with your family.
The deck area is treated with a product called "cool deck" and it works really quite well. It means that the deck stays cool even in the "mad dogs" heat of a Bajan afternoon. You, nor the kids, will burn their feet.
Out and about.
Its quite possible to spend some glorious days simply sitting chatting/reading around the pool at home. That said, if you want to get out, your villa is only a five minute drive from Mullins Beach or, for golfers, the world class facilities at Royal Westmoreland. If you fancy something really special, pop down the highway and turn left up the hill to the gorgeous new Apes Hill course, right above us, on the top of the island. You don't have to be a golfer to appreciate the views and the million dollar villas for sale on the top of the world!
But if you are a golfer, the legendary Sandy Lane course is also only 10 minutes away... max.
For the "active" there are golf clubs and even a Kayak stored in the Villa. If you want to use em, just ask and we'll make sure they're available.
The bikes may NOT be available due to get replacement tyres, which can not be purchased locally, check on arrival
The whole Bakers Wood development has been designed and built to a very high standard and is tastefully and fully landscaped. There is a grassed children's play area and a community park just 200 yards down the road. All residents, including us, contribute to the upkeep of the area. It's well worth a gentle stroll around the development one night. You cant fail to feel a real sense of community. The people of Bakers are very friendly.
