About Georgia Newsam
Hi, my name is Brian, I am originally from Montreal, but lived in Barbados for 5 years during which I fulfilled a lifelong dream of building two wonderful homes and living in the Caribbean. I own a renovations company and enjoy architecture and design. I am an avid traveller and love to discover new places and have new experiences.
Why Georgia Newsam chose White Hall
I designed and built this property because I was inspired by the majestic beauty of the land on which we chose to build.
What makes this House unique
The house has the luxury of a constant breeze keeping you cool day and night. The outdoor living is truly special and allows for much of your time to be spent outside enjoying the beautiful view in total comfort.

It's hard to describe ... but the house and setting are truly amazing. The house is well designed -- a sense of openness when inside -- great common space both inside and outside -- and -- quiet bedrooms; nice baths. The VRBO pictures don't lie. Ancient Grove also is well situated -- close to Speightstown and Holetown. Natalie and Patrick were very helpful in getting us oriented to the house and general directions. And, we had Richard White cook two meals -- first night and last -- each was terrific as is he. We were a group of 7 and each of us felt the same about our experience. Our only regret is that we wished we had more time in Barbados! We would not hesitate to recommend this home to other travelers seeking a quiet, beautiful spot close to lots of activity.
Beautiful villa set in beautiful surroundings. Was ideal for our group of adults. The rooms were cooled by the trade winds so no need for air conditioning at all. Most of the rooms were light and airy.
One of the downstairs bedrooms was a little disappointing compared to the other bedrooms. Also, the grounds are definitely not child friendly. There are 2 villas on the grounds so the pool is shared. Felt there ought to have been more loungers even though there are other places to sit such as the hammocks and the swinging chairs in the trees.
Would definitely stay here again and again.
fabulous, quiet, great staff and absolutely great driver they use,Patrick. we cabbed it for evenings
really beautiful villa, even shopped for us to have food when we got in. need a car or use Patrick. absolutely no negatives.
Spacious villa, but not a tranquil location and has issues
We stayed in Villa 2 (there are two large detached villas on this wooded site). Both villas offer a good degree of privacy, are spacious, and tastefully furnished inside. The beds were comfortable. However, unfortunately that's where the positives end. There were some major drawbacks which were not immediately apparent until we spent a night there. Extremely noisy skip trucks and cars frequently beep very loudly as they pass by on the road - in close proximity to both these villas. Our neighbours in Villa 1 expressed similar dissatisfaction about this. Dogs also barking for long periods every night nearby - so bring ear muffs!
Security on the villa doors needs urgent attention as most shutter pins were missing and some exterior door handles were broken. We had to makeshift ways to close all the shutters at night to feel secure, and to prevent cool winds and bright garden lighting keeping us awake at night.
Only 2 sun loungers by the pool to share between 2 family-sized villas! and no relaxation chairs exist in the communal gazebo (therefore this is misrepresented on HomeAway photos). No comfortable lie-back chairs on Villa 2 veranda - a point I raised with the owner but she did not seem to comprehend my point. Villa 1 outdoor chairs are different and comfortable.
A small but irritating fact - you have to pay extra to watch the TV here!
Finally, rodent traps right beside the bed in Villa 2 were not the most welcome sight!
So overall, unfortunately this villa was a disappointment for us compared to other properties we have stayed in on the island.
Lush tropical luxury
The villa was perfect for our needs, tastefully decorated, clean and comfortable. For us, the best part was the outdoor space, where we spent most of our time. The beds were comfortable, with extra pillows and blankets if we needed. There were large wardrobes in the bedrooms with plenty of hangers and storage. The kitchen was very well equipped with everything we needed and even toilet paper, dishwasher tabs and cleaning products were included.
We were extremely well looked after by the Villa Manager met who met us on arrival and when departing. Natalie was at the end of the phone at any time should we need her.
We would not hesitate in recommending this holiday property to anyone. It is extremely well managed, and represents excellent value for money.
Perfect stay - perfect place
Perfect stay and perfect place. Super perfect and professionel communcation with Brian, and very helpful.
Ancient Grove is located in a small neighbourhood, within 5 minutes drive of the west coast of the island, where there are many stunning beaches to enjoy. The house is located near the edge of a deep gully filled with lush vegetation, birds and monkeys, and beyond that a wonderful view of the Caribbean Sea. The house is also within a 15 minute drive of the East Coast of the island with its ragged hills and the roaring Atlantic Ocean, it makes for a wonderfully scenic drive and also offers several excellent surf spots. About 10-15 minutes south of Ancient Grove is the wonderful lifestyle center Limegrove in Holetown, with many high end stores,bars and restaurants, as well as a VIP cinema.
