Location, Location, Location
The villa is located in the perfect position, five minutes from Speightstown to the north and Holetown to the south. All the best restaurant’s are within a twenty minute drive, The Cliff, the Lone Star, Daphne’s and Tides. The Limes shopping centre in Holetown is only a 5 minute drive, this is also the same for the Supercentre supermarket which is situated opposite the Limes. The villa is situated on one of the best beaches in Barbados, it is quiet and unspoilt; we were able to swim with turtles just outside the villa gates!! We also had regular early morning visits from green monkeys running along the fence and through the garden. Not forgetting to mention the villa comes with the best housekeeper and cook. Rosemary is a truly remarkable lady and made our family feel very much at home from day one.

“A little piece of heaven on earth”
I have just arrived back from Camden Nook, Barbados. I travelled with my husband, my daughter and her friend (both 16). Camden Nook is a lovely villa set in an idyllic location. The beach it is situated on was practically ours for the whole 10 days with very few other visitors.
The villa is perfectly equipped with everything you may need and Rosemary the housekeeper is a treasure….her Rum punch is fab and her cooking is excellent…the macaroni pie is a must !! There are plenty of very good bars / restaurants close by and Holetown is just a few kilometres away where there are more restaurants and the supermarket etc. Swimming with the turtles has to be the highlight but there is plenty to do. Whatever you want from your holiday in Barbados, Camden Nook is the perfect place to stay….we will be returning.

We have stayed at Camden Nook on many occasions over the past 4 years. We highly recommend this place to all. The house has all the amenities and for creature comforts you could wish for, and highly recommend car rental for Island and restaurant exploration. Very clean and comfortable, especially as wonderful maid, (Rosemary) always keeps it spotless. The beach at the back is great and the water is crystal clear. It is very private, enough so for all-over tanning, but not isolated to the point that you feel completely cut off from the world.
It is very SAFE place, and as beautiful as it gets. Swimming is a joy and can get right out without concern. This place is great for groups, families and couples and anything inbetween, We are already booked for this year!! Nick and Michele

Camden Nook! What a place! We had a fantastic time we swam and snorkelled on our own reef outside the villa from sunrise to sun set, the kids had the time of their lives just playing on the beach all day. The villa garden and deck area became our living room we sat out each evening and took in the tranquil sky’s with the accompaniment of the sea breaking on the beach at the bottom of the garden. We swam with the turtles and took jet skis along to Holetown. The local fishermen and community were very friendly and kind to us and helped us with making deals on the boat trips and jet ski hire with the local beach vendors. We bought fish from the local market and fruit from the stall next door all at very reasonable prices. At evening times we sat out on the porch drinking Rosemary’s rum punch, which is the best and we drank many bottles. Rosemary is the house matron and she makes the best rum punch in Barbados; she is a very kind and thoughtful women who made our stay most happy and memorable, she invited us into her family and into her church and we took her into our hearts, she made the most fantastic evening meals which would have cost a fortune in the restaurants further down the beach. The house manager Andrew is a very kind man who give us much information on where to go and to eat and he made sure we had everything we wanted and that our stay most pleasant. We married on the beach just outside the garden gate. Thank you to Nick and Celia for allowing us to sample paradise. We will return soon Sonja and Norman

An amazing experience in Barbados
“An amazing, “like a local” experience in Barbados.” We had a great stay at Camden Nook for our wedding and honeymoon. The house is ideally located on the west coast, north of Holetown. So you are close to all the good restaurants, bars, beaches and so on. From the moment we arrived, we extremely well taken care of by Rosemary, the housekeeper. She was there to greet us upon arrival and was always around when we needed her…and when we didn’t. Her fresh grilled fish lunches and special rum punch were some of the highlights. Not to mention she was especially helpful to my wife and her girlfriends for their preparations on our wedding day. I can say that based on stories from our friends, none of their housekeepers came even close to being as welcoming and efficient. Also, we took Nick, the owner’s advice and got in touch with Trident Wines. Moment’s after arriving, Emir had us stocked up with any kind of beverage we could possibly need. Also, they supplied the drinks for our wedding and even referred us to an amazing caterer/chef (Cressida Dawson). So simply put, we were able to immediately kick back and enjoy the holiday and the beach – which is right out the door. We felt like locals from the first hour. That’s how a holiday should be.
