About Phillipa Challis

My husband and I are originally English, but have lived in Barbados for 19 years and made it our home. We were both Hotel General Managers, many years ago but despite having a change in our career path, we retain our love of good service and attention to detail.

We designed, developed and built Claridges some 8 years ago and are able to offer the excellent rates as we aim only to cover our running expenses. We live only four minutes away from the resort, so are always on hand to deal with any issues, queries or rare problems.

Phillipa Challis purchased this villa in 2008

Why Phillipa Challis chose Gibbes


This peaceful and tranquil resort is located within a few minutes walk from one of the most beautiful and secluded beaches on the west Coast and is walking distance to the main coast road and therefore easily accessible to the restaurants, bars, shopping and more beaches of the west coast.

What makes this villa unique

The short walking distance to the beach (3 minutes) without the security risks associated with being beach front. Also means with young children, it close enough to pop back for lunch or shaded pool.

Our 3000ft pool also has a large flat shallow "beach" area ideal for young children to paddle and spend hours in the water.

Such a beautiful spot

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 5 (3 teenagers) loved this beautiful property! It was quiet, spacious, clean, and so comfortable. Such a lovely touch to have food and drinks in the fridge upon our arrival. Lorraine, who met us at the condo, was so helpful and even drove us to the grocery store as we had a mix-up with our car rental. We made excellent use of the beautiful pool and played cards in the gazebo most nights! A car is necessary and it is a short drive to Holetown and Speightstown, as well as some great restaurants and beaches. Gibbs beach is just a short walk from the condo. Thank you Pippa and Michael for being so responsive and helpful. We had a wonderful holiday.

The second stay was as great as the first

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this villa. On our second stay in as many years, the villa still offered us the comfortable, low-key luxury that pleased us so much the first time. The owners, Phillipa and Michael were, as ever, easy to work with and quick to respond. I have already recommended this villa to a friend. Looking forward to a return trip.

Such a pleasure to stay at such a well appointed house with its excellent layout style and decor.3 large bedrooms all with ensuite walking wardrobe and air conditioning and fan.Ground floor was well thought out for a party of 6 or more with ample dining in and al fresco as well as two lounge areas.This all led onto the large pool with plenty of sun beds and a wonderful gazebo for lovely evenings drinking a cool sun downer.The property benefited from a quite but convenient location for walking to the beach and large electric gates for sercurity.I would happily return to this property again again and felt it offered everything you could need for a relaxing holiday.

It was clean, beautiful, and spacious. The housekeeping and gardening staff were so nice. We felt that someone would help us immediately if we had any concerns. I would stay here again if I ever make it back to beautiful Barbados. Thank you!

Perfect Barbados Villa

  • 5 of 5

Our family (two boys, age 11 and 13) had a wonderful stay at Claridges, one of our best family vacations to date. The villa was superb. It was well maintained, very comfortable and had a great floor plan. The kitchen, living room and outdoor living area worked so well for our family. Just steps from our patio was a spectacular pool where we spent much of our day. Although the pool is shared by the other villas (5 buildings/10 units total), most of the time we had it to ourselves. The quality and size of the pool is more on par with what you would expect at a high end resort, not a small group of villas. The development was well laid out with lush vegetation separating each unit, providing good privacy. The grounds were very well kept and created an oasis. Gibbs beach is literally 300 steps away and is probably one of the nicest (and quietest) beaches on Barbados. On the far right hand side of the beach there is actually a nice reef to go snorkeling with an excellent variety of fish. Claridges is located close to both Holetown and Speightstown which both offer excellent restaurants and Mullins Bay is literally just around the corner. Michael, the owner and developer, was great and made sure everything met our needs. I am sure we will return to Barbados and we would only want to stay at Claridges.

Comfortable, casual luxury steps from the beach

  • 5 of 5

I'm happy to say that our experiences mirrored many of those mentioned by previous reviewers. The owners, Pippa and Michael, were friendly and accommodating - almost as if we were friends borrowing their guest cottage. They were accessible if we had any questions but otherwise left us in peace. We greatly appreciated the starter kit of breakfast supplies and snacks they provided so we were able to start our vacation on a relaxing note rather than having to run errands. The villa itself is well laid out and contains quality furnishings designed for maximum comfort. The pool is big enough for swimming laps and its design definitely gives off a resort vibe with the gazebo and waterfall. The location on the west coast, steps from lovely, quiet Gibbs's Beach, is a quick drive to restaurants and shops in nearby towns. We will look no further when booking accommodations for a return trip to Barbados.

Nearest Beach
200 Metres
Gibbs Beach
Car: recommended

Barbados' platinum coast is host to the rich and famous but this ideally situated Claridge's enclave means you can enjoy all that this and more in an affordable yet luxurious villa, walking distance to the beach.

Being only minutes from Holetown and the famous Sandy Lane, means that you can easily enjoy all the sights of this beautiful Caribbean island, but still return to the tranquility of this superb development, and relax by its stunning pool.
