About Hugh or Dorothy

The owners took great care in choosing the perfect location for the villa - a quaint area on the north-west coast of the island so as to experience the Caribbean Sea, but also to experience the quiet, friendly relaxed Barbadian village life. The proximity to the beach and the spectacular view of the ocean from the villa led them to choose the name ‘Seacruise'.

Hugh or Dorothy purchased this Villa in 2003

We all really enjoyed ourselves and are already planning our next vacation to come back. Thank you to everyone especially Dorothy for your help in making this the most perfect vacation ever!! Can't wait to see you all again.

                                                                      Jodi R.Jamaica

                                                                      I joined my husband, two other couples and one baby on a trip to Barbados for a conference. While our husbands were attending the conference, the other wives and I looked forward to the kind of vacation where we did things at our own pace whenever we felt like it. Sea Cruise provides just that.

                                                                      We got in quite late at night and the staff was there waiting to greet us and welcome us to the villa. Dinner had been prepared in anticipation of our arrival including a special request of Cou Cou which was requested that very same day. It was delicious, Cecelia's cooking is excellent.

                                                                      As the gentlemen were attending a conference and the ladies and one baby were on holiday, we were on two different schedules. The staff made every effort to accommodate our schedules making sure we were adequately fed, pampered and taken care of. I especially liked that our laundry was taken care of. I hate returning from vacation with a suitcase full of laundry that I now have to do, not fun.

                                                                      The villa comes with a car which allowed us to explore the island of Barbados but we also enjoyed just relaxing at the villa. Relaxing in the pool, walking to and swimming in the nearby beach, a late night dip in the plunge pool.

                                                                      The personalized service is what stood out to me about Sea Cruise. I would definitely stay there again.

                                                                      P.S. I highly recommend Cecelia's homemade tartar sauce, it's scrumptious.

                                                                      OUR STAY WAS GREAT!!!!!

                                                                      JimcColumbus Ohio 43202

                                                                      We were in Barbados for our third visit [only 4 days before joining a cruise] and the second at Seacruise Villa where I spent part of my honeymoon on a previous visit. We were met by the owners who were as usual very pleasant and gracious. The sunsets are something else! We were free to do as we liked as the staff was ever so attentive and kept the villa in A class condition. A Plasma screen was installed the day we arrived and there was a pool attendant who ensured that the pools were always well kept The meals were served on time as requested. We noticed that a previous guest complained about a dog in the house below the villa . We saw the dog being bathed by its owners but never heard it barking. We got around easily as we had previous knowledge of the area. Like on our first visit we had the use of the villa car which was great as there were four in our party. We did a fair amount of snorkelling in crystal clear waters off Fryers Well beach. The furnishing were mainly well appointed Rattan and my husband loved the architecture and high bedroom ceilings We asked the owners if they saw a review by a 'California gal' and they shrugged their shoulder saying that was the 'WORSE EXPERIENCE in fifteen years' and they were sure that the couple was only seeking a free vacation or 'something'. We have a holiday home in Florida and do not wish to meet such guests ever [ I hope ] . It is mainly for this reason that we can vouch that the villa is very well kept with daily maid and laundry service. The furnishing is appropriate and not cheap The area around the pool is clearly shown on the pictures in the VRBO page and no different from that shown by 'Califonia Gal' We were comfortable in the area which is very safe. We have returned and when we have a few more dollars will return again. We liked Fish Pot which is less than ten minutes drive from the villa. The so called trash must have been cleared as the area was very clean on the way to the beach which is not wide but more than adequate. I did not say it to the owners but my gut feelings is that the couple may not have felt comfortable with local Bajans as staff-strange but true JC

                                                                      Its refreshing when people say "good morning"

                                                                      Our last visit was in November 2010.

                                                                      We have booked to return in July 2011.

                                                                      We had a grand time on each occasion

                                                                      The Staff was very courteous and made us feel at home.

                                                                      Pat was great with the food.

                                                                      Our laundry was done gratis and well done

                                                                      The villa was kept in a very immaculate condition and was tided twice per day.

                                                                      The view is fantastic.

                                                                      In Summer the beach was great but in late Dec thru June the locals told us it was smaller but still very nice to swim and snorkel.

                                                                      You do need a car as it is seven minutes from Speightstown [with supermarket and a few shops].

                                                                      The area is typical Bajan village with very friendly people.

                                                                      We have been to Barbados over ten times and over 80% of the villae are located in small village like areas .

                                                                      We have stayed on one occasion at Royal Westmoreland which is gated

                                                                      We enjoyed it but not as much as that of SEACRUISE.

                                                                      Of course if one does not want to be in an area of the native people then Sandy Lane or Royal Westmoreland is perfect.

                                                                      Cant wait to get from this chiller for a few days

                                                                      SJC

                                                                      california galsan jose ca

                                                                      This was the worst experience, dogs barking, no beach to speak of, path to the so called beach was pitted and garbage by the side of the road. Our group has rented beautiful villas in Jamaica, Manzanillo and Europe .. this was our first disappointment. It is far from everything.. My husband wanted to play tennis and had to take a bus and pay to spend the day at a resort to do so. There were 8 of us and they gave us a car for 5, . The deposit was paid for with a credit card, then for final payment owners insisted on wiring of money. The only good thing was the cook but the other help did not do a good job. The bar-b-que was rusted, the kitchen cabinets were dirty and all in all beware. I told the owners and they took the book you write comments in away. Area around the pool is narrow and furniture is cheap. One of our party slipped and fell because of the conditions. I wish someone had left a review we could have relied on. Owners are uncooperative, we were the last to arrive and there was no food for us until 2:30 the next day. No staples in the kitchen but salt and pepper. hope this helps stop someone else from making the mistake we did.

                                                                      Owner's Response:

                                                                      Beaches in Barbados are all public. There are no private beaches in the island and therefore no private beach assigned to the villa. The pathway to the beach is also public.

                                                                      In the month of January, the island has been experiencing some high seas and there have been weather advisories informing residents and visitors to refrain from using the beaches / sea.

                                                                      Guest at the villa are offered, if they desire, the use of the villa car which accommodates 5 persons and is not a rental car. For large groups, it is also suggested to the head of the group to rent a vehicle to comfortably accommodate the numbers in their group. This suggestion was declined by the head of this rental group and for their entire rental period, they did not rent a vehicle.

                                                                      The villa is not and is not advertised as an all inclusive villa. There is therefore no food stocked or bought for use at the villa without the head of the rental group's request.

                                                                      The villa however offers before arrival, a starter grocery list to the head of the rental group. This allows the head of the rental group to choose and / or add what food and grocery items they would like stocked at the villa for arrival and the following day. This saves the group from having to rush to the supermarket soon after arrival.

                                                                      The head of the rental group however seemed to have chosen the minimum of food items but a substantial amount of alcohol beverages. The arrival dinner menu which was requested by the head of the rental party was prepared for the group by the cook and served.

                                                                      Th villa offers daily staff services - daily cook, daily maid, daily laundress and daily pool attendant. The daily laundress cleans both the villa and guest laundry.

                                                                      Fantastic Place to stay!

                                                                      Sherry K.Gillam, Manitoba, Canada

                                                                      Our group of 10 stayed at Seacruise Villa to celebrate a 20th wedding anniversary. Only the "bridal" couple had been to Barbados before so the rest of us didn't know what to expect. We were blown away with the Villa and all it had to offer. It was everything the website said and more! The Staff - Pat, Olive and Vileta - were exceptional. Olive and Vileta kept the villa spotlessly clean including doing our laundry for us daily! And Pat was wonderful - her meals were beyond excellent! She was a valuable source of information and a terrific guide - even coming with us to the market and showing us local places for fresh fish and chicken!

                                                                      The privacy of the Villa was great - not too secluded and in a warm and friendly neighbourhood where we felt very safe and welcome. The views are beyond words - absolutely amazing!

                                                                      We spent most of our time relaxing around the pools and enjoying the warm weather. We did venture out a couple of times with Tyrone - another wonderful tour guide! Tyrone was the driver that was arranged by the Villa to take us to and from the airport and we were able to book him for other transportation needs. He was a wonderful source of history and full of interesting details about the Island.

                                                                      Seacruise Villa is the perfect place to spend a family vacation or a friend's getaway! The owners - Dorothy and Hugh - take your comfort very seriously. Dorothy was a tremendous help in answering all of my questions prior to booking and was there to greet us when we arrived. She checked during our stay to make sure all was well and called us to wish us a safe trip home on our last day.

                                                                      Barbados is a beautiful place to visit and staying at Seacruise will only enhance your stay!! We highly recommend it!
