The most amazing peaceful, perfect, paradisal holiday! This was my third stay at Waverly house. Almost nothing had changed - which seems incredible as my first trip was 17 years ago. In my opinion it is the best beach on the island! So quiet and deserted mostly, apart from Sunday's when it was wonderful to see local people enjoying a... More

I've just returned from Barbados where I spent a week with close family and friends on a trip which culminated in my wedding. Central to the experience was staying at Waverly on Gibbes Beach. From the staff, to the decor all the way through to the beautiful beach our experience was perfect. If you are fortunate enough to be in... More

Our family has just returned from a week at the lovely Waverly House on Gibbs Beach. We couldn't have spent a more enjoyable week anywhere else and have stayed at a few places in Barbados, this being by far the nicest. The house was very comfortable and well decorated, big double bed, fresh towels everyday and good air con in... More

Jaw dropping views and totally relaxing location. Third bedroom not brilliant but rest of house great - even better than expected, and staff lovely. Try wandering down beach to fish market - fresh off boat and an excellent way to interact with locals.

My partner, who used to live in Barbados, knew of this house and got me to go. I am new to Barbados but am very well travelled in the US, Asia and Europe in general. In my time I have been lucky to stay at some of the best hotel properties full stop. My partner got me to stay at... More

we just stayed again, and had such a wonderful time. the trees in the garden had been trimmed and there was an amazing 'window to the sea' from the rear terraces and garden. quite special, and great value. just like everyone else, the girls that looked after us (cook & maid) were wonderful. great fun, easy to have around, and...

well ok one but it was resolved same day......amazing location,best beach on the island and was basically private for most of our week. A couple of boats on Sunday but that was it - not a big concern. Make sure that you bring snorkels and masks as there is a reef only 50 yards south and my wife watched sea... More

We enjoyed this trip to Barbados. We used to stay at another villa in the area - this was the first time at Waverly House. You should know that there are 3 villas all accessed from the same drive - Harmony is separate, Waverly House and Waverly 2 are semi-detached matching halves of the same property externally, though owned (and...

We just got back from our family vacation, went with our three girls ages 9-16. We all had a great time just relaxing onthe beach and chilling out by the pool. We always felt safe as we had a night watchman and the doors and windows all secured nicely. The food was excellent! We stayed at Waverly 2 with Angela... More

Our overall stay at the Waverly House was spectacular. The villa is stunning and Gibbs Beach is one of our favorite beaches on the island. The décor is elegant, all white and beige and the 1st level is open to the patio area where the plunge pool is for a wonderful flow promoting outdoor living. The bedrooms are lovely and... More
