About Jan Taylor

Thank you for looking at Dreamweaver, Schooner Bay, Barbados!

We are Jan and Phil Taylor and have been lucky enough to have owned Dreamweaver since 2007 when we purchased it from new. We love Barbados and all that it has to offer and have been visiting for over 25 years. Having previously owned another property on the island we chose Schooner Bay because of its superb quality, lovely grounds and quiet location away from coastal traffic as well, of course, its position on the beach and views of the Caribbean sea.

Dreamweaver is our holiday home and Judy has been our housekeeper for over 15 years. She is a real gem and always very popular with our guests for her helpfulness, efficiency and, not least, her banana cake!

We are always very happy to chat over your holiday plans.

Jan Taylor purchased this apartment in 2007

Guestbook comments from the owner

From TripAdvisor reviews:

We stayed for ten days whist getting married in Barbados and can highly recommend this apartment with a great beach front location and shared pool. It is a much better option and better value than a hotel - it is first class and in excellent condition. Judy was great and really looked after us during our stay doing all our washing/ironing/cleaning and also cooking for us a couple of times.

Jason and Sally. Bucks. July 2012 5 Stars

Luxury in the real Barbados. The photos of Dreamweaver don't do it justice. The accommodation, location and amenities of Schooner Bay are breathtaking especially welcoming after a long journey. The apartment is furnished and maintained to a very high standard. Judy, the cook/housekeeper, was very caring of us. Nothing was too much trouble. Her cooking is excellent and she modified her dishes to our taste. We would highly recommend Dreamweaver and would go back again.

average rating of 5.0 based on 9 reviews

Great spacious property in an ideal location

  • 5 of 5

Dreamweaver was the perfect apartment to experience Barbados. Greeted by the friendly staff at Schooner Bay you immediately start to relax into the Caribbean pace of life. Dreamweaver is spacious, airy and tastefully decorated reflecting the tranquil atmosphere of it's surroundings. Judy, the housekeeper makes great food, always greeting you with a smile. It has modern facilities and everything you think you would need to make your stay comfortable.

The pool is great for kids as it's not too deep and there are shaded areas around the pool for them to sit and have snacks comfortably. The beach is only a stones throw away and again is ideal for children as the water is relatively shallow and clear. Take a mask and snorkel as you'll see plenty of fish and turtles are often frequent visitors to the bay. The turtles have become very tame and some will take bits of fish right out of your hand!

When all thats done, theres no better way to relax than with a rum punch either al fresco at the apartment watching the sun set over the sea or at one of the local bars. .... oh and definitely try the flying fish cakes.

I would definitely recommend this apartment, overall it's priced competitively, in a great location, is clean, tidy and beautifully decorated. Thank you Mr and Mrs Taylor, i'll definitely be visiting again.

Beautiful apartment in a great development

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Dreamweaver. The apartment is spacious, stylishly decorated, well equipped and well located on the ground floor with great access to the beach/pool. Schooner Bay is a nice size with a great pool and stunning beach with hardly anyone on it and no one trying to sell you water sports, etc. It was a total luxury to have Judy look after us so well; we enjoyed all of her meals and her exceptional banana bread in particular will never be forgotten!

Schooner Bay is at the quieter end of the West Coast but within easy reach (10 mins drive) of more lively areas. We enjoyed the low-key vibe of Speightstown and had no problem driving up and down the coast and beyond to find shops, activities and restaurants.

We had 2 marvelous weeks of pure relaxation. Judy took care of us better than I could have expected. Her cooking was outstanding. We loved eating on the lanai listening to the sounds of the ocean. We spent almost the entire vacation swimming with the turtles and snorkling. The amenities in the condo were lovely. The unit was conveniently located to walk into town to go food shopping. The restaurants in Speightown were just so so. The best restaurant to walk to was at Cobblers Cove (the opposite from town). We recommend this home for a relaxing vacation.

Wonderful Break

  • 5 of 5

We spent first 11 days of 2015 at Dreamweaver with family incl 2 teenage boys. Was perfect for us, villa is really spacious and comfortable with all the amenities you would want. Pool big with nice hot tub. Beach is 50m from villa & simply superb. We saw turtles, platefish, snake-eels and many other fish right there on out own beach & reef which made it more special. Best of all was Judy, great food, lovely welcome & big smile. Highly Recommended. AS.

Simply Stunning

  • 5 of 5

I have visited the island several times but this was my first stay in Dreamweaver following a friends recommendation. I will certainly book this beautiful apartment again. The setting is ideal for beach walks, turtle spotting and local life. The location is perfect for a quiet break, noise can be found anywhere but peace is harder to find and Schooner Bay delivers.

Judy is every bit the gem that other reviewers said she was. She glides about and takes care of the meals/laundry with effortless grace. I highly recommend this apartment.

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time at Dreamweaver. Beautifully-furnished and very well-maintained. Judy the housekeeper/cook was lovely, highly-recommend her bajan fried chicken ! Swimming pool and beach also excellent, plenty of sun loungers and pool cleaned every morning. Lovely walk every day on the beach to Cobblers Cove further along the bay.

Schooner Bay is located on the beach front.


Grantley Adams International Airport is 40 minutes by car from Schooner Bay. A car is not necessary as there are local shops and restaurants close by and buses and taxis are plentiful for longer journeys. For sightseeing and touring the island, however, a car is recommended.


Speightstown - a 5 minute walk.

Holetown - 5 miles.
