About Lucy Woods

My husband and I live in Berkshire, near Ascot. We have worked hard all our lives and bought Happy Returns from our savings as we began to approach retirement. We both worked in Telecommunications for many years.

My husband is a keen golfer and spends most of his free time on the golf course and loves to play when we are in Barbados - he claims that he plays better in the sun(hmm!!).

I love the sea, the sand and the sun and the house is perfect for a complete chill out.

The house is our treat, for years of hard work. We love it there and hope you do too.

Lucy Woods purchased this house in 2010

Why Lucy Woods chose St. Peter

We have been all over the Caribbean but prefer Barbados above all the other islands. It got to the point where we had been on holiday to Barbados twice a year for 5 years in a row and so we thought it was time to buy.

We love Barbados because it has something for everyone. It has the sun, sea and fun of the Caribbean but it also has the golf courses , exceptional restaurants and the people are really friendly. We have been so many times now and we still have not made it through the list of incredible restaurants!

We also love that there is a direct flight from Gatwick so we do not have to spend time waiting for island hoppers when we could be in the sea!

What makes this house unique

We love the convenience of the house. It is literally a minutes walk to the beach and the beach restaurant. There is a gym as part of the development. The gym is modern and I know the spa is wonderful!

The sea is warm and pleasant but if you prefer a pool, we have access to 3, all within seconds of the house. Most days you get the pool all to yourself - luxury!

When we do want to go to a restaurant, shop or go to play golf that is just a short drive away.

We offer wireless internet, TV, bluetooth samsung sound system, games, videos, books, barbecue ..everything you need for a holiday in the sun.

Guestbook comments from the owner

March 2015



Lucy,

I just wanted to thank you so much for the use of happy returns last week. We had such a happy time there and as three ladies travelling it was safe clean and so tastefully decorated-perfect for us as a great base to watch the cricket. One day we took the boys out for the day and we all swam In the large pool and there as usual seemed to be no one around. We only wish we stayed longer! The good news is that I have another son who will hopefully do the tour in 2 years so maybe it will be a happy returns for us?!



Many thanks for providing the perfect place for us!

Excellent location, easy access to pool, beach , restaurants, stylish, very comfortable and safe

  • 5 of 5

We spent ten wonderful days in January 2017 with our three children and their partners. The accommodation is beautiful, stylish and very comfortable with all bedrooms having an ensuite. The property is a two minute walk from Mullins beach with membership of the exclusive Westmorland beach club plus there is a very good beach restaurant. You can stroll along Mullins to the more secluded Gibbs beach. All very safe and laid back. The house has a lovely patio and balconies for relaxing, eating and enjoying the view and a small pretty courtyard that opens up to two pool areas. We enjoyed time of the beach and by the pool one of which is a really good size so you can get some decent exercise if in the mood (I managed 50 lengths on my last day!). Otherwise if you have a car you can nip to Holetown or Speightstown for groceries ( buy veg on the street not in the supermarkets)bars restaurants, however there is a bus stop just outside on the road and the buses go all the time up and down the west coast day and night. Taxis are a good option too. We had quite a few bbqs at the house and did our own breakfasts and lunches. We ate out a lot too at a range of different restaurants. I loved Speightstown as Holetown is becoming a bit glitzy for me but on the other hand it gives you a choice which is great. Shonelle the housekeeper is absolutely delightful and kept the house beautifully clean and did all our washing too! I would definitely hire the house again if I was going back to Barbados, very good value I felt. If you want a really different experience try hiking Barbados with Stephen Mendes..... Loved the walk, interesting character with an interesting heritage. Anyway to summarise it's a lovely safe property in an excellent location, go and enjoy!

Happy Beginnings

  • 5 of 5

Lucy,

Thanks for a super stay at Happy Returns. We know Barbados well, to come to a home and to be made to feel totally at home just added that extra special thing to our holiday. You had seven happy people in your home (probably not so happy when we left).

We will be coming back.

Bajan peace

Ollie

Happy Returns

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Happy Returns and had the most wonderful holiday. We had never been to Barbados before and have fallen in love with the place. The House was lovely, well equipped and easily and comfortably accommodated all 8 of us. Everything we needed was in the house including towels for bathroom and pool, hairdryers, even shampoo was left in the showers. All the bedrooms were spacious and had their own bathrooms, as there were 4 couples we used the bathroom downstairs solely for the couple in the ground floor bedroom which could be shut off using the sliding door. House is so near to the beach, 5 min walk, where towels and beds are also provided for once you show your card. Spa on site was great too. We had such a great time that i will definately be returning next year. Lovely clean place and highly recommended.

Coast/Beach:

The villa is a 1 minute walk, through lush tropical gardens on a red cobbled pathway to the stunning Mullins Beach on the West Coast of Barbados. Waterskiing, banana boating, glass bottom boat and many other activities are available from Mullins Beach. Please see attached pictures as I can not show in 200 characters what the photos can!

Travel:

The only airport is Grantley Adams International Airport which is at the south of the island. It is not far but you should estimate a travel time of between 30 - 40 minutes, as people dont like to rush in Barbados!

There is a petrol station a 5 minute walk from the house for bits and bobs. The best supermarket is a 8 minute drive away in Holetown, which is also the location of the new lime grove shopping mall for international designer shopping.
