About Neil & Wendy Allen

Wendy And I have owned Ebb Tide since 1996 when we bought it Ebb Tide was a small house with only a bug screen and bars at the windows.Over the years we have transformed Ebb Tide to the property we have now.The Major work was carried out in 2009 when most of the house was demolished and rebuilt.Last year we added the gazebo which has been a great addition .We still love to enjoy the house as a family each year we visit with our son Robert and his Wife Dan and there 2 children Heidi and Toby.

We have made many Friends in Barbados both locals and guests that have stayed in Ebb Tide.

Neil & Wendy Allen purchased this villa in 1996

Why Neil & Wendy Allen chose St. James

We always say that Barbados is Paradise Ebb Tide is our Shangri-la.

There is class, there is 1st class, there is world class and now my wife and I and our families have experienced Ebb Tide Class. The place is simply the best.

We have just returned from the most wonderful house, location and delightful people at Ebb Tide. Merlisa the skilled chef prepared all of our meals while catering for any individual special requests without any hesitation or fuss. Jackie the housekeeper was just great looking after us as she happily dealt with daily tasks around the house. Henry the security guy was very polite, friendly and attentive to his night and day time responsibilites.

While we were staying at Ebb Tide my wife and I were married right there in the house with 22 guests celebrating our big day. It could not have been organised, arranged and enjoyed so much without the tremendous assistance of Neil and Wendy as well as Andrew and particularly Karene who handled things on our behalf before our arrival and during our stay on the island.

Everyone connected to Ebb Tide are lovely and great people.

Our holiday and wedding was fantastic and family discussions have already taken place for a return visit soon!

Nothing Short of Perfect

  • 5 of 5

I think the title sums it up - both families had an amazing time at this beach front Villa! Everyday time was spent snorkeling on the reef right off the property with the sea turtles, squid, sea urchins, fish, and we were even graced by a stingray. We typically took time during the late morning or early afternoons exploring the island as it is so small it is easy to make day trips to explore the different coastlines. We spent time travelling over to Bathsheba, to Harrison's Cave, and up to the more remote northern tip in Saint Lucy. The staff was fabulous - Merlissa and Jackie in particular were the best. We were greeted with rum punch upon our arrival - and enjoyed it throughout our stay. We had dinner every night outside looking out at the ocean and enjoying the sunsets. We had a vegetarian in our group as well as picky children and Merlissa was able to accommodate all their needs! The fact that we didn't have to clean up the dishes at night after a hard day of site-seeing was such a special treat. We are not used to having staff so it took us a day or two to figure out how to best utilize them but we figured it out. We would highly recommend the villa for anyone looking to relax and get away from it all!

Owner's Response: We are so pleased that you all enjoyed yourselves .We don't have staff either at home, so I know how fantastic it is especially for the ladies not having to cook wash up or do any laundry while you are on vacation. We look forward to you returning again some day. Neil & Wendy.

Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic property! I had looked at many other homes and saw some of the ones I had looked at while I was in Barbados. Not often I can say I chose the best.

The home is exactly like the photos only nicer. The staff is wonderful. It's true what others say about eating out, why bother. Merlissa cooks first class meals and the location of eating outside on the beach can't be beat. We had all our meals outside and the setting is beautiful.

I was a little worried from the photos that the beach had reefs right up to the shore, but it is actually smooth stones, easy to walk on and there are plenty of perfect sandy areas all the way out. In addition, unlike popular beaches, Ebb Tides is very private, no crowds! We also had turtles come up to our beach and lay eggs at night, and had a small family of monkeys that would dart through the yard, never a problem and we all loved seeing them.

I would recommend the Mt gay tour, everyone's favorite, a visit to Cranes beach for rougher body surfing waves and unbelievable views and Sandy lane and Paynes Bay for the quintessential Caribbean beaches. Also, Primo bar and restaurant in St Lawerence gap on the water is great.

All in all, it was a perfect vacation and The only problem in recommending Ebb Tide so highly is it will become even more popular and harder to book again! And by the way, Neil could not have been easier or more helpful in answering any and all questions. Looking forward to returning again soon.

Amazing Villa - great location!! *****

  • 5 of 5

Wow Ebb Tide was so beautiful - it was everything you want in a relaxing holiday with friends and family, with its perfect location! The kids didn't get out the beautiful sea literally on your doorstep, so great for us reading a book relaxing watching all the antics and joining in snorkelling with the turtles and so many fish!

The house is run perfectly by everyone involved - Neil before you even arrive with all his advice, Melissa the fab chef made the most gorgeous meals and catered for everyone even our fussy kids. Jackie made our stay so easy and going home with clean clothes is such a bonus, Henry was always on hand, he kept an eye on the house and us. Andrew the house manager can help if you need anything arranged.

The whole package - Ebb Tide provides makes a perfect holiday!

From the Owner

We always say that Barbados is Paradise Ebb Tide is our Shangri-la.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Grantly Addams at 20 Miles Nearest Barpub : il Tempio at 200 Metres Nearest Ferry : Bridgetown at 8 Kilometres Nearest Golf : Sandy Lane at 2 Kilometres Nearest Motorway : Nearest Restaurant : Il Tempio at 200 Metres Nearest Beach : On the Beach Fitts beach Car: not necessary

About 4 miles out of Bridgetown, 2 miles to Holetown and 14 miles to the airport.

There are so many things to do,but most people just want to relax but whatever you want within reason we can organize.

There is a beach bar and restaurant ell Tempio just a 2 minute stroll along the beach happy hour is between 4-6 pm .

A comprehensive suite of concierge services designed to make your holiday in Barbados a truly idyllic escape, from start to finish. Whether you desire a round of 18 holes on one of the world-class golf courses, a private sunset cruise, spa treatments, sporting activities, water ski-ing, island tours or the best table at an exclusive restaurant We can organize that.

But there is nothing better than first have a shower ,then drinks on the sea wall or in the gazebo watching the sun set, before a candle lit dinner with friends or family overlooking the Caribbean.Then turn out the lights and watch the quicksilver as the moon reflects on the Caribbean sea.I cant wait to go back !!

There are no private beaches in Barbados but the beach in front of the house is almost your private beach you may see a few people in the morning strolling along from one of the hotels near by then the rest of the day it is like your own personal beach.

We are just a 5 minute drive from Sandy Lane Hotel where 5-star golf, tennis and spa facilities are available.

There is a supermarket just a three minute walk away that will provide almost everything you may need.

Holetown is only 5 minutes by bus or car where you will find the duty free shops and lively night life.
