About Sam Brooke - Moyes

We have been visiting Barbados since 1980 and built Warawee in 1993. The small villa was completed in 2000 with our parents in mind. 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.

Now retired from business and in our 60's we divide our time between Barbados and a home West Sussex.

Barbados to us is England in the sun.

What a wonderful place to stay, fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Warawee, the position of the villa is ideal and havin the sole use of the pool at this time was a great bonus. Wendy the house keeper was very friendly and kindly got us food before our arrival, a lovely lady. First time in Babados and would certainly stay at Warawee and will recommend to friends and family too. Many thanks Shirley and Garry X

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.

Wonderful Warrawee

  • 5 of 5

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.

Delightful Villa.

  • 5 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: 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.

The perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Barbados does not disappoint and this delightful cottage is no exception. A stones throw from Gibbes bay, which is the best kept secret in Barbados, the location is wonderfully quiet but central for west coast amenities. The cottage is set in the most beautiful tropical garden and is shared by a resident humming bird, other garden birds brimming with character and the occasional green monkey. The cottage is the ideal size for a couple and the new wooden canopy will definitely become your outdoor living room and favourite reading spot. Last but by no means least, Wendy, will look after you superbly.

Great House and location

  • 4 of 5

The House was great and the location If you want to be close the the beaches. Easy to take the buses to holetown, sptown or bridgetown. No internet in the House, only outside. Sam kind of pressured us into accepting to have his driver Patrick Pick us up from the AirPort for 45 USD which he said was standard fare, but the fixed prices from the AirPort to Gibbs area are only 31 USD, and he also said the House was diffecault to find, but right at the main Road and would have been no problem. There is also buses directly from the AirPort going every half hour directly to the House.

Owner's Response: I will certainly be looking into three taxi fares but only one of our guests has achieved a lower fare. The island has been having random bus stricks and together with unreliable time keeping of the local airline, I was very anxious for their welfare, especially if the flight arrived late after dark. Warawee is not easy to find for most guests and most drivers. Guests hiring cars are given detailed directions and telephone no. Wendy the housekeeper, is on stand by to give directions on the phone for all having problems, frequently the taxi drivers and delivery men not familiar to the area. I have not had complaints of the WiFi and will check this. The previous guest used inside the house successfully listening to overseas radio/tv and continuing on with business communication using an iPad. so we assume all is working normally. We like to hear of any problem a guest may have so we can deal with it straight away. There are very few and Wendy is always keen to make guests stay successful.
