About the owner: My wife & I have been visiting Barbados for the past 9 years. We just adore the island, the slower pace of life & the friendly & helpful people. We are always discovering places to see, things to do. My parents & ancestors came from Barbados. My grandfather owned the land on which Sugar Ridge now stands & grew sugar cane here. However, in more recent years the land stood empty & we thought after all the hard work my grandfather put into the land this was sad. Then an opportunity arose for my wife & I to build on the land. We were fortunate to be introduced to Aubrey, one of the top architects in Barbados who together with his partner have become our very good friends. He put so much thought & care into his design to create really spacious & comfortable inside & outside living areas. Sugar Ridge is a real home from home.
Why the Owner Chose Holders: Sugar Ridge offers an opportunity to experience real Barbados life and is well located to explore this beautiful island. A place to unwind, enjoy the outdoor life, meals on the BBQ, breakfast under the Gazebo. Read a book, sip rum punch on the sun deck, or gently swing in the hammock before cooling off in the pool. We’re still amazed by the garden’s beautiful plants, colourful flowers, wildlife, & occasional monkey. At Sugar Ridge we have shared many great times with family & friends & have wonderful memories. We are sure you will too. Many guests choose Sugar Ridge & return year after year
The Unique Benefits at this Villa: Sugar Ridge is so spacious & comfortable, even with 8 guests there is always a quiet spot to sit and relax. The gardens are just beautiful and big enough to stroll around in or for the children to run & explore in complete safety. The villa always feels cool with such wonderful breezes blowing from the east. Barbados offers so much in terms of peace & tranquility, wonderful un-crowded beaches, great food & entertainment. We love the fact that each month there is something happening, festivals, shows, concerts & sporting events. There really is so much to please all age groups. We can have as relaxing or eventful a holiday as we want.
