About STEPHEN GRIMES

We are both work in aviation based in the UK.

Kate flys and Steve is Chief Executive Officer of a Corporate Jet Company.

STEPHEN GRIMES purchased this villa in 2010

Why STEPHEN GRIMES chose Christ Church

We purchased Caprice in Barbados having previously had a property in Tobago. Barbados is so safe and secure and we had frequently visited and fallen in love with the south coast and in particular Accra Beach. This spot has everything close at hand but at the same time Bluewaters behind the beach is a quiet haven popular with local executives based in Bridgetown.

What makes this villa unique

Caprice, just two minutes from the beach really has everything we wanted. A beautiful mature tropical garden, fantastic private pool, very large upstairs terrace overlooking the pool and enjoying beautiful tropical breezes. A short walk to top restaurants, beach bars, taxi rank, supermarket yet totally quiet and private. This is the ideal place to relax, unwind and enjoy. We visit as often as we possibly can!

Perfect house, Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

The location of Caprice is great and heres why! ... set on the corner of a quiet residential street but only a 2 minute walk to Accra beach, shops, restaurants and with the reggae buses passing the main road every few minutes its easy to reach the other surrounding beaches all within a 10 minute bus ride!

The mall is just opposite Accra Beach where they have something for everyone, our 3 children loved going to Chilly Moos Ice cream parlour after the beach and the pizza takeaway was really good as well as the raw juice bar (the acai bowls are amazing!)

The villa itself has everything you could need, the pool was more than big enough for the 5 of us and friends who came to visit, plenty of sun loungers and garden space too. Inside the villa was clean, bright and spacious and had real home from home comforts. Fiona, the house manager was lovely and was on hand for anything we needed and Steve who owns the house sent us some pictures of the villa, beach and surrounding areas before our visit and was always on hand to answer a few pre holiday questions we had via e-mail.

I would highly recommend Caprice for families or even groups of friends due to the spacious layout, great home entertainment facilicties (pool,bbq,huge terrace) and of course its perfect location. We are returning this year and can't wait!!

Tranquil location

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from Caprice House in Rockley having spent our last 4 nights of an 11 night holiday and can honestly say it was perfect. The house is set back from the busy Accra Beach yet so close to places to shop,eat and drink. The house is as the pictures show, large rooms, clean and has everything a family would need (home from home), The pool is an excellent size, plenty of sunbeds for a large group (there were only 3 of us so more than enough) as well as mini surf boards for the kids. Fiona from the Management Company met us on arrival and explained everything we needed to know from the use of the safe (essential when travelling overseas), security system, what keys would be needed whilst staying at Caprice House even giving us a call on our last day just to touch base and make sure we have had a good time.

We would definitely recommend staying at Caprice Hiouse and will be considering booking again very soon. Steve, the owner, was always available when we needed to speak to him.

A lovely house set in perfet surroundings!!!!

Caprice VIlla

  • 4 of 5

We arrived quite late on the Thursday night to the airport and we were picked up (not sure if we paid extra for that). Very nice man who drove us to the villa where we were met by FIona from the management company who ran through a few things with the house. FIrst disappointment was that we only had one key for the house for six of us. Locking the door was not straight forward either, we had detailed instructions on how to do it correctly so as not to lock ourselves out! Only 3 out of the 4 bedrooms have air conditioning. Communal bathroom is extremely large however, extremely horrible! It is like a prison/school bathroom, it really could do with modernising.

We did not get housekeeping until Thursday which was a week after arriving and then we left on Sunday! Not ideal at all when six are sharing.

The fridge has a filter system which really needs cleaning. Kitchen pedal bin was broken so we left the lid off the bin for the whole time which was not ideal ! The safe key snapped off in the lock with all our money in! 2 days later we had a response from Fiona who had to await instruction from the owners on how to deal with the situation.

On a much more positive note the villa itself is very very nice albeit tired looking and in need of some tender loving care. The location is excellent in a quiet residential setting and very close to Accra Beach. We all had a fantastic holiday and can highly recommend Rockley, people are very friendly and we all felt very safe.

Would I personally stay at Caprice Villa again, yes I would if the owners paid a little more attention to detail. I believe they are English so am a little disappointed that they should know better especially when charging as much as they do!

Owner's Response: Transfers are complimentary for all our guests and their baggage. This is advised in the booking confirmation. The very large family bathroom has the original terrazzo floor and sides to the shower.....which could take six people! Where possible the original character of this beautiful house has been retained. The American style fridge freezer with ice make and chilled water has actually already had a new filter fitted. Unfortunately these guests managed to break the key in the safe lock and it took a couple of days to get this fixed which is actually very quick for the Caribbean. This is a beautiful old house in a beautiful location, part of the charm of this big house are the original features with high ceilings, upstairs entertaining terrace with terrazzo floor. These original,polished stone floors are also retained in the kitchen and family bathroom.

Perfect Location

  • 3 of 5

This villa is in a perfect location and having a swimming pool is great. But I wouldn't call it luxury as inside was not particularly clean, I was disappointed.

Caprice House

  • 5 of 5

Caprice House is as described by its owner, and more! It sits in a quiet location about 300 yards from Accra Beach and the main road between the airport and Bridgetown, making it very accessible. The property is very functional, with good facilities, and well appointed throughout. We were well looked after by Orlanda the, very friendly, house keeper.

For a private dwelling the swimming pool was a good size and great to relax in (very necessary when sunbathing in the house gardens).

This was our first trip to Barbados, although the 5 friends we travelled with had been there a number if times before. Their view was that this was the best accommodation they had stayed in. There are a number of good restaurants locally - Tapas being our favourite and Tides which is on the West Coast. For travelling around we hired a car for a couple of days and Coconut Cars offer good value (they are a bus/taxi ride towards Bridgetown). There is a lot to do and two must's are a trip to Harrisons Caves and a sailing experience with Barbados Sailing with the charismatic 'captain Ron'.

All in all a great experience and would we return? A definite yes, with Caprice being our choice for accommodation.
