What our guests say…

We are regular villa renters in Barbados and this house is in a different league. Its clearly someone’s home and is maintained to pristine levels of cleanliness and state of repair which is often not the case with places that are heavily rented out in Barbados. There is a full-time housekeeper and this is so much better than the agency staff you might get.  She knows the house inside out and keeps the rooms to five star standard. The location on the beautiful golf course has stunning sea views and the owner has membership of private beach beds on the same beach as the Lone Star… the perfect combination. We loved the outside gazebo with all the American barbecues/grills and more Sub-Zero fridges than you could possibly want.  We would love to visit again.

A very elegant villa run by the housekeeper. She was a gem, providing flexible cooking when we wanted it and kept the villa in a lovely condition. The laundry turn around service made coming home with all our clothes washed and pressed a very welcome experience !. Thanks again.

What our guests say…

We stayed recently (February 2017) at Firecracker. The house is kept in top condition with lovely individually decorated bedrooms. The double height hall and pictured walls are very dramatic and give a very open space feeling. The villa has a large pool for Royal Westmoreland and considerably more facilities and patio areas than we have seen at other properties on the resort. The Fairmont Royal Pavilion membership is perfect for beach lovers, having prime sunbeds ,umbrellas and showers on a great beach with restaurants and bars moments away.

What our guests say…

We have rented accommodation at Royal Westmoreland for 6 years and without doubt our family (6 adults and 5 grandchildren) had a very memorable holiday at Firecracker. This is not a holiday let property but a fine family home beautifully appointed with a splendid housekeeping service complimented by the additional benefits of Royal Westmoreland luxury estates excellent facilities. We would certainly recommend Firecracker without hesitation.

What our guests say…

Our stay at Firecracker was memorable for many reasons. A beautiful home not like a rental at all. The housekeeper was a gem and the Fairmont Hotel Beach Club membership provides a superb and quiet beach. One of the best on the island without doubt. Thoroughly recommended.” We return in August 2017.

What our guests say…

We have stayed at Firecracker several times. The house and cottage are beautifully and individually decorated. The view across the golf course through palm trees to the sea beyond is a lovely backdrop to the pool. We particularly liked the large open patios and the gazebo for lunches and evening BBQ’s. Very elegant.!
