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 Belair

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.

Terrific Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5

If you are considering a VRBO property in Barbados, do your self a favor and look no further. The online pictures do not depict the true beauty and tranquility available with Zena and Irvin at this lovely villa. Although they live on the property, you never see them, unless you want to. Everything in the villa worked great, the bedrooms were clean, the bedding very comfortable, the whole property is immaculate. My wife and I were joined with m y brother and his wife as well as my cousin and his wife, for a total of six adults. At no time did we feel cramped or like we were in one another's space, the pool, the patio and the gazebo afforded all of us plenty of space. I have rented from VRBO at least 6t times, and I would rate this property, and the owners at the top of the list for both the property and their ability to make you feel at home, without being in your face. Again, if you are looking for a property in Barbados, this is it, we're making arrangements to return, early next year. Don't wait Zena has quite a waiting list of people who have visited with her and Irvin.

We had a blissful time

  • 5 of 5

The house was spacious, light, and comfortable with near perfect facilities ( the kitchen knives could perhaps have been a bit sharper!). We love Barbados anyway, and this house worked perfectly for ease of access to the airport which made it easier as we had children arriving and leaving on different days. Zena and Irwin were very welcoming and helpful hosts. Proximity to the Crane added an extra dimension, and of course nowhere in the island is very far from anywhere. We did need the car we had hired, though.we look forward to returning when we need the same flexibility over accommodation. Many, many, thanks.

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking the time time to review our property Jonathan, we appreciate it . I sharpen the knives every couple of guests... you must have been on the tail end of that , apologies... they are now sharpened again and I will try to ensure I do it more often . A car IS necessary for our location which is stated in the info.... I always encourage guests to rent one . Though a lot have not and managed on the buses !!! Thanks again .

Zena made you feel very welcomed, hospitable and extremely kind. If you needed to no anything you could ask Zena. I would recommend to people who are respectful of other people’s property as it’s so beautiful and well looked after.

There is nothing else really to say. The island is beautiful, the house is beautiful, and the hosts are beautiful. The pictures do not do the property justice. Zena was by far the best VRBO host we have ever had. She is a fountain of information. She can tell you the best the island has to offer. If we come back to Barbados, we will definitely be staying at one of Zena's properties. I would whole heartedly recommend this property to anyone that wants a tranquil, restful holiday property. You feel away from everything, but with a car, everything is not far away.

We were so blessed at our stay at this property. The villa is more spacious then we anticipated. The bed rooms, living room, kitchen and pool deck are all larger then we imagined. Much larger then it all appears in the pictures. The property owners, Zena & Irvin are amazing and are on site to meet your daily needs. There are a variety of beaches within walking distance that provide beauty and amazing sunrises. The scenery in the area is spectacular. The villa is away from the tourist zone and provides quiet and tranquility. Every night you are under an amazing canopy of stars and serenaded by nature. The setting helped provide the rest and escape we needed. There is a convenience store within a couple blocks to help meet the daily requirements. I will be recommending this property to others and will be back in the future.
