“Very special”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

Stayed here as two families with teenagers for the first two weeks in April. It was all lovely and very relaxing - helped also by excellent weather!. Location and views are stunning and villa is ideal for two families. The Chef, Merlissa, and the Housekeeper, Jackie, are both great and were really happy to help with anything. Ditto Andrew from the management company. We took advantage of the wine ordering service recommended by the owner. Excellent wine on sale and delivery and all delivered to the villa the next day. The kids loved the Kayak's which were available for use by guests and spent hours on these. We were visited by turtles, a small cat and a duck - who seemed to move in ! The beach outside the property is small, but nice and the sea is a little rocky - so suggest use of crocs or surf shoes. Our 3rd visit to Barbados - having stayed in hotels and another villa previously, but this is the best so far. Would totally recommend Ebb Tide

“It doesn't get better than Ebb Tide”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 January 2014 for a stay in January 2014

We had an absolutely fantastic second visit to Ebb Tide. My parents joined us this time, they have travelled all over the world, on all different types of holiday and voted this one their favourite by a long shot.

Melissa (the chef) is a fabulous character but rubbish dancer! Her cooking was another level, it felt at times like we were eating in a five star hotel.....curry night was our favourite.

The housekeeper Jackie, laughs all the time, irons your shirts, shorts, even your pants, was lovely and continuously helped with our kids..... spent much of her afternoons walking around with our baby on her hip!

Henry is the night watchman, he's a gentle giant and gets the kayaks from the garage when you're ready to take to the seas to annoy Simon Cowell in his super yacht.

And finally Andrew is the house manager, as ever was so helpful, he drove us into town to sort our driving permits, organised credit for us with Trident Wines and when we were concerned about coconuts falling on the kids, had a team of men at the house within TWO HOURS, shinning up the trees and cutting them down.

They've added beautiful wooden gazebo to the garden, right next to the sea. It has lights, power for your ipod speakers (!) and is large enough for 8 people to eat in. Its perfect for when the heavens open which they did for 10 minutes twice a day for us, it's welcomed to cool the island down but ruined your lunch in the days before the gazebo.

We visited many hotels, to see friends, during our stay, including Sandy Lane and Coral Reef and none of them compare to Ebb Tide, infact when our friends visited us for the evening (24 of them and Melissa cooked for them all!!) they all asked for the villas website as next year they'd take the villa over a hotel anytime.

I appreciate this just sounds like an advert for Ebb Tide, but we really cant fault it, definitely booking again within 24 months.

“Perfect Honeymoon!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2013 for a stay in October 2013

From start to finish our stay at Ebb Tide was absolutely fantastic. Making the booking with Neil in advance was a pleasure as he couldn't do enough to help, even restaurant recommendations and bookings.

Andrew, the property manager, really looked after us while we were there - even going out of his way to come to the villa to drive me to collect my local driving permit, and Merlissa and Jackie made sure we had amazing meals and that everything was kept clean and spotless.

The view of the sunset from the upstairs veranda each night were stunning, weather permitting, but even watching the storms from there was just amazing.

Despite barbados' beaches all being public, the beach still felt like we had it all to ourselves, even more than being in a hotel or an apartment complex and sharing with others - its the ideal honeymoon location!

“Barbados for my 40th Birthday Celebration!! - Ebb Tide was PERFECT!!”

person found this review helpful

Where to begin... The booking process with Neil the owner was seamless, almost too easy. He was extremely helpful and responsive to all of my questions and concerns. He was also very helpful in assisting us with our itinerary for our stay by suggesting things to do and places to see.

The house is BEAUTIFUL!! WOW!! Photos don't do it justice. You have to see it in person, period! The grounds were magical and so inviting to relax, take a nap, or just view the sea through the coconut palm trees... And the sunsets were magnificent!

Staff - Merlissa is an excellent cook. Jackie had our laundry completed each morning. And Henry was very kind and ensured we were safely locked in at night! I celebrated my 40th birthday with 4 friends and the staff did everything to accomodate us. I believe they enjoyed themselves as well during our celebrations!

I was sad to leave, but do have plans to return in the future. My friends were also discussing a couples trip to the island staying at Ebb Tide. I believe you have converted us all!!

Thank you again for a WONDERFUL celebration!!

“Heaven on earth”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2013 for a stay in February 2013

My daughter and I were in the lucky situation to spend half a year at Ebb Tide in Camps Bay. What a phantastic place to stay. We had the best time ever. I dare say that you won't find anything better if in Camps Bay. Location, view, design, staff and security were excellent. Lovely beaches and restaurants in walking distance. We felt comfortable from the very beginning. Whenever we needed a helping hand somebody was there to assist. Ebb Tide has become like a second home and whenever we come back to Capetown we will definitely stay at Ebb Tide.
