About Sam Brooke - Moyes
We had been visiting Barbados since 1980 and built Warawee in 1993. The small villa was completed in 2000 with parents in mind who spent winters here. Both houses have a traditional feel and look, but European standards. Being keen gardeners we developed this at the same time and it has become a lovely oasis. We retired from business and in our 60's we divided our time between Barbados and a home West Sussex. Barbados to us is England in the sun. Since my husband passed away I have maintained Warawee and regard this very much home. My time is now divided between here, UK and world travel. This is to relax and recover home.

2nd visit, another fantastic week
It feels a privilege to sit in this stunning tropical garden and watch the hummingbird busying itself on the flowers - our second visit to Warawee was just as lovely as the first. The cottage is ideal for a relaxed visit and is well furnished and very comfortable, has easy access to the beach and is a short distance from several restaurants. The marine reserve at Folkestone is fantastic for snorkling and the coral looked in very good condition this year.
Wendy, once again, made us welcome and looked after us extremely well. Thank you.
Thank you for writing a nice review. All at Warawee always try to keep it a special oasis, they love to see people return.
Fantastic in every way. An absolutely wonderful place. You'll be missing out if you don't go.
You must book this property, before it gets booked up... we're definitely going to go back asap... The location, layout, gardens and facilities at the property were all 1st class, pictures are unable to do any justice to the reality when you arrive. Wendy is an absolute diamond and always happy to help. There is absolutely nothing negative to say in anyway whatsoever. You will not be disappointed, you'll only be stunned, every day you're there!!! The beach is only minutes away with quiet sandy beaches and some of the best snorkeling location I've been to in 15 years (head to the south end of Gibbs beach and head out from just before the walkway around the bay). My wife worried about the lack of aircon, but we will never go back to using aircon again... we were able to acclimatise within a day or so, and then had so much more energy than when we've had aircon before (all 15 years of going) as we weren't having to re-acclimatise every day. After staying near Holetown for 15 years we found Gibbs much more of the old local friendly feel to it and only went into Holetown once. We had dinner at Wanda's Beach Bar (15mins walk south along highway1 or the beach) it was the best food we've ever had on the island, with a wonderful welcoming atmosphere and local prices, right on the beach. She does a fantastic lunch, but If you want to have dinner you have to book, but you HAVE TO GO, it is seriously the best food on the island at prices that will leave you shocked (cheap). Speightstown has everything you need and you can get the Jordans supermarket van to give you a lift home with you shopping, no charge just a donation of your choice. Plenty of bars and restaurants too... you'll not be disappointed. We will be coming back... See you soon Wendy, from Dan and Tara.
Fantastic, welcoming accommodation
We had a wonderful relaxing stay at Warawee and will certainly be returning. The accommodation has everything you need and is well situated for Gibbes and Mullins beaches. We used local buses to travel to Holetown and Speightstown allowing us to travel further afield.
Sam and Wendy were both on hand to provide valuable information on things to see and do. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay - thank you.
Thank you . It's always reassuring to hear of an enjoyable stay. We look forward to seeing you again.
Garden of Eden Experience
My husband and I totally enjoyed our stay at the "garden villa". The cottage was adorable and it was situated in a beautiful garden of Eden. Cannot wait to return.
We have just returned from a great holiday at Warrawee.
The villa is situated in a wonderfully private & tranquil garden with many different birds and the occasional green monkeys visiting.
It is very clean and well equipped with Wendy, the housekeeper coming in twice a week to clean and change towels and bedding. Wendy is excellent and always on hand to answer any questions or to have a friendly chat with.
Sam, the owner of the property was in the main house during our stay and is a very friendly and charming lady. She made us extremely welcome and we found her knowledge of the island very helpful.
We were glad we used the taxi service recommended to us by Sam, as Patrick was there to meet us at the airport and took us directly to Warrawee, which despite knowing the area, we would have struggled to find in the dark.
If you are seeking a peaceful holiday in a wonderful location, with the beach only a short walk away, Warrawee will be ideal for you.
Sincere thanks to Sam and Wendy for making our holiday so special.
David and Margaret Smith
My husband and I absolutely loved this beautiful villa, it was perfect for two, located in the most delightful tranquil setting just minutes from the beach. The villa itself is very well appointed with absolutely everything you might need for a prolonged stay. We will certainly be booking again when we return to Barbados.
At Warawee we try to exceed expectations and good to hear when we achieve this. It is an oasis and for those seeking
relaxation in nice surroundings the ideal spot.
Mullins and Gibbs Beaches are 150 meters away. Gibbs is very quiet and secluded. Mullins is far more active with a bar/restaurant, and water-sports.
The villa has satellite tv. with full sports package so you can stay at home to watch your favourite team
Grantley Adams International Airport is approximately 40 minutes away. We can arrange for our regular taxi driver [Patrick or one of his team] to meet you at the airport. The standard fare is Bds$90 [US$45].
The towns of Speightstown and Holetown, about 1 and 2 miles away respectively, are easily reached; both having supermarkets and banks. Holetown has more stylish shops, very good supermarket, banks and Lime Grove centre with cinema and shops, plus a wide selection of restaurants, nightlife and tourist information. Speightstown has a more local feel with local food market and restaurants; becoming a very popular town. There is public transport to both towns and throughout the island.
The island has a varied landscape and a hire car would be an advantage to see the many sights, especially the wonderful views at North Point and the east coast as you drive from Morgan Lewis. Also an area known as 'Little Scotland'. Public transport is frequent and cheap. Island tours, coastal trips, day cruise or a romantic sunset cruise can be arranged locally; collection taxi available when organising the trip.
