About Zena waithe

We are Irvin and Zena Waithe , and we moved to Barbados (Irvin's birthplace) from the UK in 1994, and built this home for ourselves and our two daughters. The house has been used for visitor rentals before, but for the last few years it has been given over to long term rental. But now in 2012 we reopen the vacation rental concept, and look forward to once again welcoming visitors to our special oasis and former home , and to welcoming you to Barbados. We are on hand if you need us, with lots of information on where to eat,what to see, how to access some beautiful beaches etc. Alot of our guests who visited before, came again and again, we are sure if you choose Tradewinds, you won't be disappointed.

Zena waithe purchased this villa in 1994

Why Zena waithe chose St. Philip

We like the peacefulness of the Crane area, away from the hustle and bustle. Also we always enjoy the wonderful sea breeze. We love the beach walks that are easily accessible, car hire is essential.

What makes this villa unique

The house is cool, which in the tropical Heat of Barbados is a terrific bonus. It benefits form an open plan layout, and the lounge opens on to a covered dining patio and the pool deck. The garden is walled and private from neighbours There are two covered patios one facing east and one facing West. 15minutes from the airport, 10 minutes to nearest supermarket, though there is a mini mart nearby. There are restaurants within a 5 minute drive. It is 30 minute drive to the south and west coast for accessibility to a wider array of beaches and restaurants.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My husband and I stayed at ‘Tradewinds’ in December 2012.The house has been refurbished and offers spacious accommodation. The kitchen is fully equipped and there is also a ‘quirky bar’. We loved the garden pool area and gazebo.The roof which provides shade in the blazing sun also provides protection from rain! The pool is big enough to swim in properly and is great to lounge around and the planting in the garden is lovely to look at while doing so.

You will need a car for convenience, although the nearest beaches – which are lovely – are just a 10 minute walk away. It is possible to use the facilities at The Crane resort which can be a 10 min walk, or two min car ride. The best thing about the place, is the tranquility. We had a great time.

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

This was the 4th time that we had stayed at Zena and Irvins property but the 1st at this their new house and it certainly did not disappoint. The house is beautiful and the layout has been well thought out, the fold back doors in the main living area and the master bedroom were fabulous and allowed for a gentle breeze throughout the day. As with their other property everything has been thought of and if you need anything you just have to ask either one of them and it normally appears very quickly. Thankyou to you both for a lovely 12 weeks.

Paradise in Barbados

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Tradewinds for 11 glorious days! During our stay Zena was helpful, but not intrusive. She suggested restaurants and places to go. The house was in perfect working order. We did not need anything additional for our stay. We were two families, totaling 8 people and had plenty of room! The location was great as we were away from the busy west coast, but close enough to get there in 20-30 minutes. Everything is as great as it looks in the pictures! We would definitely stay at Tradewinds again.

Amazing stay at tradewinds

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at this beautiful villa for our 2 week holiday.

The only downfall was that 2 weeks was just not long enough!!!!!

The villa itself was spacious and tastefully decorated and for us felt like a home from home. The kitchen was well equipt, the living area extremely comfortable, the bedrooms and bathrooms kept in fab order and very clean. We spent a lot of time having a few beverages in the quirky bar area, the hats were a lot of fun but where we spent most of our time was outside in and around the beautiful pool and jacuzzi! The pool was always kept spotlessly clean on a daily basis by Irvin and the surrounding outside area was absolutely stunning with the most colourful flowers, banana trees, coconut trees and shrubs.

Zena and Irvin were extremely helpful in every way, on hand to give you some excellent advise on the best beaches, local attractions and great restaurants to visit. Thank you for all the help you gave us guys, it's really appreciated especially the help you gave us finding family members!

We are so glad to have found this relaxing, peaceful villa and will defiantly be returning next summer!

WoW! Sense-ational Villa; St. Philip, Crane Beach

  • 5 of 5

From our first glimpse this very special villa 'ooozed' luxury! It was indeed a perfect place for 'chillin' and the additional benefit of swimming in a 'salt water pool' and 'salt water jacuzzi' was a massive 'plus' for me and my husband - no chlorine!!! An additional health benefit - fantastic!

We loved the layout and the spaciousness; light and bright and beautiful plus classy, clean and comfortable! :)

Zena and Irvin are the perfect hosts who provide local information, guidance and recommendation about anything and everything you may want to know, to help you with your Barbadian experience, without intruding on your privacy! Overall, this has been one of our most fabulous holidays to date and we are definitely returning here for more blissful relaxing time-out! :)
