Why Tim or Hilary Warren chose Blue Waters
Tim and Hilary visited Barbados in 2003 - where Tim's mother had grown up - and fell in love with its beauty, culture and people and decided to buy a home on the island. They chose Springcourt as it was a lovely new development a mile inland, off the tourist track and in a quiet cul-de-sac - but still just a few minutes away from a great beach, shops, restaurants and other amenities.
What makes this Condo unique
Springcourt is a modestly sized and most attractive condominium development of around 15 houses and apartments, set in beautiful gardens and with a lovely shared pool. The property itself benefits from one large living area downstairs and two generously sized bedroom upstairs both with their own bathrooms.

Nice, roomy flat in quiet neighborhood
We had the pool to ourselves most days. Enjoyed the monkeys by the pool at cocktail hour, what fun!
Open floor plan and great kitchen space.
Would recommend highly.
Lovely property in a great location.
This is a very spacious villa furnished to a high standard. It is in a good/quiet/safe location only a 20min walk from the beach and main shops in Rockley.
The pool is lovely and massive for a villa.
The Internet connection was upgraded whilst we were there and is now superfast 80mb+
We had a few minor issues which were dealt with brilliantly by Dawn the agent, who is the most helpful person on the island!!
March 2016 - Amazing villa, felt like home
My trip was in March 2016 not 2018 so firstly a big apology to the owners Tim and Hilary for taking so long to write this review!
We were met at the property by Ronald who was lovely and took time to show us around and answer any questions we had. He also called during the stay periodically to check we were ok and gave us his number if we needed anything. Thank you Ronald.
The purpose of my trip was two-fold, celebrate my sister's 50th birthday as well as a surprise for my father (who was 82 at the time).
The house is just how it was in the photos. Very homely and comfortable with all mod cons you would want/need. Had the pool to ourselves most of the time we were there.
Was very quiet, felt very sasfe, lovely neighbours- a mixture of locals and others on holiday.
Would recommend a car just because of the distance to the main road. It wasn't that it was far (less than 5 mins drive) but that the road to the villa goes around the edge of the golf course so a bit long for my dad to walk everyday. Locals told me there was a short cut, if walking, but I didn't find it -too busy enjoying Barbados. However once you were on the main road Rockley beach /shops/food are all there. I even found a little local Jamaican vegetarian takeaway near the villa that was amazing.
I could go on but to summarise, we had a wonderful experience from start to finish (except we didn't want to leave) :-)
I've been travelling to Barbados for more than 15 years and always have a wonderful time and this was no different. Would definately recommend this villa and would return. Thanks Tim and Hillary for sharing your lovely home.
It was beautiful very clean and spacious
Great location nice peaceful neighbour hood but 5 mins from everthing you need beaches , restarants etc.
We stayed here for 13 nights, we are a family of four so the space was perfect for us! Renting a car is a must, I would not enjoy that walk to the grocery store or to the beach in the heat but it is doable if you are not interested in driving. Pool is quiet and we had it to ourselves most of the time. Condo complex was clean and well looked after. We would have loved to have had use of a BBQ during our stay but other than that it was great.
Great Value, Exceeded Expectations
I found this rental property online. After corresponding with the owner, Tim, and sending a friend in Barbados to check it out, I decided to book 12 days, for myself, my girlfriend and my mother. Despite not knowing the exact location beforehand, we were all happy upon arrival. The property was exactly as shown online. In fact it was larger than we expected. The property was very clean and well stocked with cookware, dishes, cutlery, and linens. It was also great having a local phone, a flat screen TV with satellite, a nice stereo system, and of course, wifi. As stated by others, it's a 20min walk from busy Rockley Beach, some days we wished it was a bit closer, but a cheap cab ride can always fix that. Dealing with the owner Tim was a complete joy. He was always quick to respond and even went to the trouble of mailing info and a map from England to my home in Canada, before we left! Dealing with his agent in Barbados, Brian, was also easy and awesome. I would definitely recommend this place to family and friends looking for a place to stay in Barbados.
The property is situated in a quiet residential area and is just one mile from the very popular Rockley (Accra) Beach. It is adjacent to Rockley Golf Club and less than 10 minutes drive to the capital Bridgetown in one direction and the nightlife hub of the island - St Lawrence Gap - in the other. There are a couple of good supermarkets 5 minutes drive away and the Sheraton Centre shopping Mall is less than 10 minutes away. There are a wide choice of excellent and reasonably priced restaurants within 5 - 10 minutes drive. The West coast can be reached in 15 minutes.
Other Activities: Kite-surfing, museums, shopping
