My husband and I just returned from a one week stay at Farther Away cottage. It was definitely one of the nicest places we have ever stayed. We absolutely loved the cottage and the views from literally every room were awesome. We loved the huge deck and spent many an hour sitting with a cold drink relaxing and enjoying the breeze. We also enjoyed sitting out on the front porch of the cottage taking in the lovely landscaping, the humming birds and views of the local village. The cottage was very clean and well-equipped with everything you could possibly need including beach chairs, umbrella and small cooler for picnics. Although there is a bus stop nearby, we had a rental car and found it was convenient and easy to do day trips around the island. We walked down to the beach almost every day and enjoyed swimming in water as warm as a bath. Christine and David were great to deal with, answering many questions before we arrived and David kindly met us at the airport so we could follow him to the cottage, and stopped to show us the local supermarket etc. on the way. We would definitely recommend the cottage to anyone visiting Barbados and hope to return ourselves one day soon.

Owner response: When our guests arrive in Barbados, they are coming to relax as most of them work long hours and are stressed out. Our objective is to make things easy for them, especially on arrival and to ensure that they have everything they need. Farther Away, sells itself with the location and view and safe swimming. We have been blessed to have had awesome guests from different countries, who have looked after our property like their own!
A True "Must-See"
A True "Must-See"
Farther Away is a delightfully-decorated cottage situated high on a cliff, overlooking a secluded beach and bathed in gorgeous sunrises. The cottage is prefect for either relaxation or for adventure; or better yet, both. The property is impeccably maintained and the owners are readily available to discuss related questions prior to, and during one's visit. The photo images on the VRBO website don't even begin to do justice to the beauty of the cottage and its beautiful location. Sadly, there has not been a camera invented that can capture the fresh morning breezes which sweep across the large veranda and through the cottage. For those wanting to see Barbados' true personality and beauty, the location is perfect, minutes from Bathsheba's rugged coastline and the rest of the East Coast bays and inlets. The world-famous Soup Bowl surf break is no more than 15-20 minutes away. A short drive brings one to the hilly, picturesque "Scotland District", Harrison's Cave, the Barbados Wildlife Reserve, and many more of the island's treasures. Farther Away also offers its own micro version of the Wildlife Reserve in the form of the small colony of cute Barbados Green Monkeys which inhabit the trees and bushes on the cliff face. Do not try to befriend or feed the monkeys; they are, after all, wild animals. Just sit back and enjoy watching them. The house has a well-equipped kitchen as indicated on the website. For those days and evenings when dining out sounds more appealing, a short drive to the south finds The Crane resort with its array of outstanding restaurants. A short drive north brings one to the Atlantis and Round House restaurants in Bathsheba. Day trips to the upscale West Coast beaches and shoppes and bustling capital city of Bridgetown are very easy as is access to the beautiful South Coast beaches and the myriad restaurants and night life of St. Lawrence Gap. Earlier comments have mentioned the rum punch. What more can I say? The best! All in all, our experience at Farther Away completely met our expectations. We wouldn't hesitate to return and will whole-heartedly recommend it to others.

Owner response: We accept that the photos do not do justice to the house or view and will be getting a professional photographer to take photos for our VRBO website in the not too distant future. The monkeys are very cute and just as curious about people as people are about them so just enjoy their antics and don't feed or try to pet them.
Farther Away is one of the nicest rentals that we have stayed in. With three bedrooms, each one painted a different color, there is plenty of room for family and friends. It is clean, nicely furnished and the owners are almost as great as their complementary rum punch. The location is next to none, overlooking a gorgeous beach, with hardly anyone using it. The view from the veranda is very restful and if you need a place to unwind and relax, this is the place to be. You will be needing a car. We enjoyed it so much, we are sure to return and I have to hesitation to recommend this property.

Owner response: "Farther Away", is away from the hustle and bustle of the south coast and west coast. With the cool Atlantic breeze, lovely views and our special rum punch, our guests have no choice but to relax, unwind and enjoy their holiday in Barbados.

We could not have asked for a better place to stay, every amenity needed was provided. Beautifully decorated inside and out, clean and spacious, the pictures do not do it justice. The view of the ocean was not only spectacular but relaxing. Our hosts (owners) were very gracious and accommodating. The location was perfect for our needs. We had no problems getting to all areas of the Island. Very highly recommended to anyone looking to stay in Barbados.

Owner response: We want Farther Away to be a place where our guests can have a relaxing holiday and still have the comforts of a "home away from home"!
Stayed at Farther Away in January this year - truly wonderful. The cottage is extremely clean and comfortable with everything you need. Beautiful views, good swimming although it can be a little rough when the children can bodyboard, fishing from the pier, enjoyable walks and a view of the only tiny island (Culpepper) off Barbados. The owners are extremely helpful and probably the less said about the rum punch the better!!! Would recommend it to family and friends alike.

Owner response: The swimming can be rough at certain times of the year but it is safe, no currents and good for boggie boarding. If the children are too young then there is always Bath beach about 8 to 10 minutes by car.

Our stay at Farther Away was wonderful. The sunrises and moonlight nights are as good as you can get anywhere. The swimming, although it was be a bit rough sometimes, was great. The house was very comfortable and clean and I would highly recommend this as a holiday home. The owners were very welcoming and the complimentary rum punch delicious.
