St. Lawrence apartment description

Sister Cottage to 'Pirate Ryan's Den' VRBO#443814....This Quaint Little Island Cottage is constructed of a combination of Purple Heart Hardwood & Concrete block work. It is painted with cheerful colours inside & outside adding to the island flavour. The wrap around balcony together with the gingerbread trimmings scream..'Welcome to the Caribbean!'

What a Location!! Approximately 200 yards away from the entrance to St. Lawrence Gap....Party Central Area in Barbados, also home to a multitude of Restaurants and Small shops. A five minute walk to Sandy Beach (one of the top beaches on the south).

'Booby Duck* Cottage' is an upstairs apartment, and as such, we would not recommend that folks with knee or hip problems stay here.

We believe the pictures speak for themselves ... We look forward to welcoming you to OUR Island!!

* Will explain name on arrival...Have a Safe Trip!

                Best rental stay we have made. Trevor was gracious enough to pick us up on Saturday night and give us a quick tour so we could get our bearings. Maria`s rum punch was poured as soon as our bags were dropped and then we went straight to the gap , a short 2-3 minute walk. Excellent location close to the bars and restaurants of the Gap with easy Bus route access for getting around the island. The use of a local cell phone and landline while on the island was an excellent bonus.Wireless also good for internet to check out and make reservations for excursions restaurants etc etc. Trevor was there on Sunday to see us off. Although on the main road and close to the Gap we slept with no problems.Probably the rum punch along with the hum of the AC and fans kept us in dream land. Would reccommend this apartment to anyone for location and Trevor and Maria`s great hospitality. I hope the Brazil airline keeps the service running so we can return again soon.

                We had a wonderful holiday with wonderful accommodation! The Booby Duck has everything you need for a great vacation. It is located in a great area, whether you are walking or want to take a bus. (There is even parking if you rent a car.) The choice of cooking in the apartment or having so many great places to eat within a very short walking distance was fantastic. The comfort of opening up the windows and doors and feeling the Caribbean breezes meant so much. Sitting out on the nice balcony, watching sunrises and sunsets was beautiful. It was fun seeing the odd blue heron and other birds fly by. The roosters were entertaining, making us laugh at their chatter. Making us look forward to our dream of having our own roosters and chickens one day. Thank you Maria and Trevor, your hospitality was very much appreciated. Thank you for the yummy rum punch! We look forward to seeing you again, soon~ Stephen and Kathryn

                Wow, can't describe it any other way than a spectacular month on the Island. The Booby Duck was just as advertised and lived up to every excellent review preceding this one. A touch of class was finding a bottle of Maria’s wonderful rum punch in the fridge at time of arrival and after a long flight, it turned out to be just what the doctor ordered. After that, the Rum Punch Fairy showed up numerous times to replenish our ever depleting stock and there is no question, it’s the best on the Island. The location of the Booby Duck is great, a short stroll to the Gap, and a nice morning walk to Accra and the Boardwalk (we like long walks). The Island just continually serves up one great day after another. Believe me, you will never rent a vacation property belonging to nicer and more helpful people than Trevor and Maria… Thanks a bunch T/M, hope to see you again!

                We had such a lovely stay and Trevor, our host, could not have been more helpful. He was responsive to all out thousand questions and provided a cell phone for our use on the island. He cheerfully offerred to drive us around the island, but we were so relaxed and content just to lie on the beach, that we declined. Another reason to come back in the future! His wife provided us with the most delicious Rum punch, and although we do not usually drink, we ordered another bottle before we left. Booby Duck cottage was absolutely perfect. Our home away from home. It was clean and stocked with everything we could need, including beach towels and a clothes line for drying wet swim wear! It was right on the bus route and we were able to travel all over the island for $1 per person. We loved the porch where we enjoyed lovely sunlit breakfasts, and listened to the neighborhood cocks crowing (not audible inside the cottage). Thank you Trevor and Ryan for the trip back to the airport and the use of your lovely cottage. Next time we will plan to stay for 2 weeks as the time went waaaay too quickly!

Yes..Yes you must come for longer, it's not a complete visit without seeing the East Coast. I'm drinking a Pirate Ryan's Rum Punch as I type this....great to me too (I'm biased). Our Den (vrbo#443814) downstairs Booby Duck is picking up and great response so far also! Have a Fantastic 2013 and hope to see you back sooner rather than later...Thanks Eric & Gail, All the Best, Trevor, Maria, Melissa & Ryan.

                My husband and I stayed 16 days at the Booby Duck and it became our home away from home. The location is perfect for getting around southern Barbados. Walking distance to beaches, restaraunts, bars, markets, and banks. A 7 min. cab ride to Oistins for some of the best food on the island. The sunsets are beautiful, the people are wonderful, and Maria's Rum Punch is the best rum punch we had our whole stay. The booby duck is such a cute little cottage, with lots of character.

They had some of the most beautiful weather a September in Barbados can offer you... little or no rain and spectacular sunsets! J & C took the plunge with a rental car for a few days and managed to see quite a bit of the rock. Maria's Rum Punch...we need to plant more lime trees. Thanks Guys! Continued success in all of life's endeavours...Salud!

                I can't say enough about our stay in Barbados, it was absolutely amazing. Having a couple of the top beaches in the world just a few blocks away is heaven -- white sand and turquoise water in every direction. What really made our stay beyond everything we hoped for was our experience with Trevor and staying at Booby Duck. The accommodations at this condo are top-notch, everything you could ever need plus more, not to mention how well designed and decorated it was - much nicer than ANY hotel we've been to for vacation before. Just this alone would be more than enough for us to recommend to any one of our family or friends, however it gets better, the owner Trevor took as good care of us as he would his own family. He picked us up from the airport, showed us around the area to help us acclimate with our surroundings, gave us suggestions on where/what to do, had a cell phone for us to use, free Internet at the condo, Rum Punch waiting in the fridge, on and on. You name it, he had it for us. I really can't explain in words how great this place is and dealing with Trevor was, it's so far beyond anything we expected. Needless to say, it's all we've been talking about since getting home. There is a zero percent chance that when we go back we wouldn't be staying there again. The only thing I worry about is too many people are going to find out about this amazing setup and it will be booked so far out that there won't be an opening for us! I'm also confident in saying that if someone were to be on the fence about what island to visit, knowing about this place alone would be worth booking Barbados for. It really is a no-brainer.

                Owner response: J & N ...You are both too kind!! It has been said that "A Vacation is what you make it!" ... so you guys have yourselves to thank! I thank you sincerely for the kind words, and can only wish you many many years of marital bliss!! AND, I hope that you can make it back here with us during many of those years! Overwhelming Review Guys! We are just your humble hosts ... But, it's Our Island, and we love to show it off ... even if it's just with some Rum Punch & A Smile!! Enjoy!! (Or Mount Gay Silver :),,,).

                Thanks so much to Trevor and Maria who maintain this impeccable vacation rental! Our stay in Barbados was lovely, filled with fun and relaxation. As an ideal ambassador to Barbados, Trevor consistently went above and beyond simply being a gracious host. We truly felt as though we were his personal guests and it certainly made our stay that much more enjoyable. The island is a spectacular place to visit and St. Lawrence Gap is a great place to enjoy a wide variety of cuisine and non-stop nightlife. The Booby Duck is right on a bus route, so getting around town is easy and convenient. Overall, we were thrilled with our Barbados experience and are truly grateful to Trevor and Maria for their hospitality and kindness!

We are very pleased that we contributed positively in your Barbadian experience...Hopefully, there will be many more; perhaps, the kids could join you next time!!...Lots more to see, remember?

Truly flattered by your compliments....Beautiful Review from Two Beautiful People!! Merci Beaucoup!

                My husband and I just returned from our 2 week stay at Booby Duck. We enjoyed our very cozy "home away from home" immensely. Trevor epitomizes the Bajan hospitality the island exudes. We loved sitting on the deck having breakfast with a breadfruit tree and monkeys as a backdrop. We were able to walk to the beaches, grocery store, rum shops, and restaurants easily. We took public transport to neighboring towns when walking was too far. We always felt safe. Trevor greeted us at the airport, gave us a tour, provided a cell phone, sent tips via email of island happenings, and checked in with us to be sure we were enjoying life. Trevor thank you for a most relaxing and fun vacation. We hated to leave and hope to return.

                My husband and I chose Booby Duck for our second trip to the island and it was absolutely perfect. The pictures are accurate - a quaint and well maintained cottage. The roosters gave us grief the first night but once the air conditioning was on we slept like babies :) Make sure to stock up on Maria's rum punch -it's worth it!! This was a wonderful getaway for us and we would highly recommend it! The cell phone was a great perk and we always felt safe in the cottage.

"Pirate Ryan's" Rum Punch, made by Mum (Maria)... a huge hit! Many more Anniversaries to come, hope to see you back at Booby Duck for a few of the many!! Take Care! Thank You!
