About the property

Spacious Villa in Bakers Wood, St Peter. "Minutes" from Holetown,Speightstown, Mullins & Royal Westmoreland.

Built in 2007, Whitewood Drive is a modern three bedroom villa, finished to very high standards and with large open plan ground floor leading onto its own private patio and swimming pool. The Villa is sited within the highly regarded Bakers Wood community, located on the beautiful West Coast of Barbados.

Its an easy space to live in..

All Three Bedrooms (1 en suite), bathroom, kitchen, utility & living spaces are on one level.

The only steps lead down to the secluded pool and patio area. Very private and very safe for kids. There is no need to constantly go out for a good day. There are some great days to be had staying at your Bajan home and sitting round the pool. The Villa benefits from excellent Wi-Fi, with a strong signal from the front porch to the back deck and pool.

The property: .

Priority 1 these days - Excellent Wi Fi from front to back of the property.

3 good sized bedrooms- 1 ensuite & all with Air conditioning. A good nights sleep is "mega", so no skimping here. Beds by Feather & Black.

Bedrooms:

Master: King Size double bed with three double wardrobes leading to ensuite shower/loo. Air con with remote control.

Middle Bedroom: 2 single beds. 2 double wardrobes. Air con with remote.

Front bedroom: 2 single beds. 2 double wardrobes. Air con with remote

Useful is....220volt sockets in the kitchen, master bedroom, garage & porch. These are in addition to Bajan 110v sockets. We use them for powering & fast charging laptops, phones and tablets.

Living/ Dining room.

3 Seater + 2 Seater sofa = dining table for 6/8.

HD TV with Cable TV subscription, DVD player, DVD's, a Wi-Player (For Wii Fit),

There's also an I-pod/ I-phone Dock if you fancy some tunes.

Kitchen

The property has a fully equipped kitchen with granite work surfaces.

Gas Double Cooker & Oven, loads of pots pans and cutlery (Can't you tell a bloke's writing this!) Food mixer,.. a coffee thing? There's also gas "Barby" in the garage.

Our Utility Area next to the kitchen is blessed with an American style twin tub,top loading washer & dryer.

At the rear:

Pool + Pool Deck & loungers: Your own pool. Not shared. Not communal, like so many in Barbados turn out to be. Our pool is yours and yours alone to enjoy with your family.

The deck area is treated with a product called "cool deck" and it works really quite well. It means that the deck stays cool even in the "mad dogs" heat of a Bajan afternoon. You, nor the kids, will burn their feet.

Out and about.

Its quite possible to spend some glorious days simply sitting chatting/reading around the pool at home. That said, if you want to get out, your villa is only a five minute drive from Mullins Beach or, for golfers, the world class facilities at Royal Westmoreland. If you fancy something really special, pop down the highway and turn left up the hill to the gorgeous new Apes Hill course, right above us, on the top of the island. You don't have to be a golfer to appreciate the views and the million dollar villas for sale on the top of the world!

But if you are a golfer, the legendary Sandy Lane course is also only 10 minutes away... max.

For the "active" there are golf clubs, pedal-bikes and even a Kayak stored in the Villa. If you want to use em, just ask and we'll make sure they're available.

Your neighbourhood.

The whole Bakers Wood development has been designed and built to a very high standard and is tastefully and fully landscaped. There is a grassed children's play area and a community park just 200 yards down the road. All residents, including us, contribute to the upkeep of the area. It's well worth a gentle stroll around the development one night. You cant fail to feel a real sense of community. The people of Bakers are very friendly.

About Deb Marshall

There's 4 of us. 2 cousins and our wives. We're all hardworking bods, born and bred in the Midlands. I'm a motorcycle dealer. My cousin Steve owns a garden centre. Our wives support and tolerate us in all we do!!!..God bless em.

This is our bolt hole in the sun.

For sure we've put money into it. We built it from scratch. But there's also a lot of love, sweat and beers gone in along the way.

The community, your neighbours, are wonderful. We couldn't have built it without them, we couldn't maintain it without them and we wouldn't want to be anywhere else on the island.

Spend a couple of weeks here and you'll see why.

In Barbados, the only thing that shines brighter than the sun and the sand, is the people. You'll love it.

Deb Marshall purchased this villa in 2007

Why Deb Marshall chose St. Peter

It was just wasteland when we first saw it. But it was a plot of wasteland with a sea view .And that's how it all started. We had to buy it - Here's why ..

Its 2005. There's only 3 days left of the best holiday we've ever had and we fancy looking at a few properties.

We've had a look at a house on the brand new development at Bakers Wood. Nice pad but not the layout we'd like. But LOVE the development. There's houses dotted around in various stages of completion. There's building going on everywhere. There's a right buzz about the place. And everybody's getting involved: Families & builders. There's a few finished properties and they look great. Next to one of them is a biggish plot of land with a little flag in it. Its a plot & its available. I got out the jeep and stumbled over to were the back garden (our pool) would be and looked left. I could see the Caribbean Sea.(Tick)

Then a voice from somewhere in the garden next door.

"Where you from?"

I looked around. "England" I said.... to nobody in particular.

"I know that. Where from in England?"

"The Midlands", I said.

"I know that. Where in the Midlands?" he said.

"I'm from Walsall, my cousins from Solihull... and I wasn't being nosey I was just looking at the plot and..."

"I lived in Solihull for 40 years. Retired over here".

And so it started. All of us stood on the plot chatting, then into his place for a nose and a chat & beers. Then the most amazing thing happened.

Sue, my cousins wife, recognised somebody in a photograph.

"Is that Thelma ***?" she said.

"Yes" he said. "That's my wife".

"Are you Ozzie ...?", she said.

"Yes", he said. "Do you know my wife?"

"Know her. I worked with your wife for 20 years."

Unbelievable Well that was it. Beers were opened. We were in for the day.

Our last 2 days were spent sorting the legals.

In '06 building started. In '07 we shipped the pool from Miami. The house & pool was finally completed (just), in November 2007. 2 years!! But so, so worth it. Hope you agre

What makes this villa unique

We reckoned that if it was comfortable for us, it would be comfortable for anybody. Cliché I know, but we wanted a home from home.

We think we've done it, but if we've missed anything, feel free to offer the gift of "feedback".

No1 benefit? Easy-The people who look after the place for us.

Roseann - Cleans from top to bottom every week. The house WILL be clean.

Pete The pool Guy- Comes in every Thursday morning to clean the pool.

Ozzie - Our neighbour. Knows everybody & keeps his eye on our pad. He IS the Mayor of Bakers Wood. If anything needs doing, he lets us know & often sorts it!

So what about the house...

3 good sized bedrooms- 1 Ensuite & all with Air conditioning.

Excellent Wi Fi from front to back of the property.

220volt sockets in the kitchen, master bedroom, garage & porch. These are in addition to Bajan 110v sockets. We use these for powering & fast charging laptops, phones and tablets.

We have a HD TV with Cable TV subscription, DVD player, DVD's, a Wi-Player (For Wii Fit), if you're in to that sort of thing. Me I'd rather be drinking Rum on the porch with the neighbours!

There's also an I-pod/ I-phone Dock if you fancy some tunes.

The Kitchen is very well equipped:

Gas Double Cooker & Oven, loads of pots pans and cutlery (Can't you tell a bloke's writing this!) Food mixer,.. a coffee thing?

There's also gas "Barby" in the garage.

Bedrooms: A good nights sleep is "mega", so no skimping here. Beds by Feather & Black.

Master: King Size double bed with three double wardrobes leading to ensuite shower/loo. Air con with remote control.

Middle Bedroom: 2 single beds. 2 double wardrobes. Air con with remote.

Front bedroom: 2 single beds. 2 double wardrobes. Air con with remote.

Baby Cot avail.

Utility Area: American style top loading washer & dryer.

At the rear:

Pool+Pool Deck & loungers: Your own pool. Not shared. Not communal. A pool bought, shipped & installed by us (a story in itself), for yours & our soul use. ENJOY! -I mean it. Really enjo

Fantastic property !

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Debs, for your introduction to Barbados. Your place is totally amazing! As a solo traveller the experience was fantastic, the local people were warm, welcoming and always very helpful. Taxi to or from the villa is simple, book before you leave or at the desk just in front of the airport, safe and well organised. Your holiday home is Immaculately clean, everything one could want/need. Wifi perfect. pool was bliss, car hire easy and they went above and beyond.... Even taking me out to get me orientated with local shops/bank/petrol/restaurants. The location is perfect, and driving down to Bridgetown to go on the catamaran/turtle trip was easy and fun. (They also collect you if needed) loved the turtle trip, loved exploring the island in my car, the restaurants were exquisite, looking out at the sunsets just on the beach wow.... I have travelled for many years to many locations and would put this as one of my favourites. Thank you once again Debs.... I would certainly recommend your villa to all my friends and more.... Just need to plan my return trip...

Notes:
Notes on accommodation: Children are most welcome. There is a brand new travel cot & brand new high chair available at the property. However, it should be noted for insurance purposes that children under the age of 12 should not be left on there own by the swimming pool. The property has its own driveway which is subtly lit at night, and can easily accommodate several cars. The Villa sits on a private residential estate. It is of fairly recent construction (2007) and, we feel, built to a very high standard. The Villa is equipped with both 220v and 110v electric sockets in kitchen and master bedroom. The higher voltage sockets are particularly useful for fast charging ipods, Ipads, etc. Outside: The pool is area is private and very safe for kids. The deck area is has a special "cool deck" treatment which means you, and your kids don't burn your feet . The pool area has its own outside shower as well as an 8 seater table & chairs and 6 sun beds. You don't need to leave the house to have a good day. The pool is cleaned once a week on Thursdays. There is a gas barbecue for use of the guests. The Villa is blessed by being sited amongst a wonderful people in a serviced community. There is a communal green, garden and children's play area which is well maintained by the whole community. Utility Room: Washing machine, tumble dryer, iron/ironing board & rotary line on the deck. The kitchen area also has ipod and iphone music docking system. Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: All bed linen and bathroom towels are provided but guests are asked to bring their own BEACH towels. Property is cleaned once a week when all linen/towels will be washed and changed. More frequent cleaning can be arranged. Other: There is also a spare blow-up double mattress for extra guests. There is also a safe for personal belongings. Children's high chair and cot available. The property is fully alarmed.
