"After just returning from our stay in Bamboo cottage felt the need to gush about what a lovely place this is to stay! Joanne is the perfect hostess, she has all the info you will need about every part of your stay, where to go, local tips etc but also she will give you the privacy you need too.
The cottage is equipped with everything you will need, beach towels and chairs, cool bag and ice blocks.....
We had all windows open all the time, shower is open in any case, but no worries as mesh at every opening to keep out the mozzies, also ceiling fans, air con in bedroom, mozzie net over bed. Cozy lounge area too if you can drag yourself away from the front porch with its comfy furniture and hammock. Hummingbird sits in the bamboo near the porch and keeps you entertained fighting off all contenders for the sugar water feeder, inquisitive lizards pop in the porch too.
Joanne left us a welcome snack with jug of rum punch on arrival, there is drinking water dispenser so no need to buy bottled water!
Could rattle on about the property but now for locally....baileys supermarket down road, places to eat all along road to English harbour and around marina. Pigeon Beach just out of marina is great, beach bar at one end, more elegant Catherines Place restaurant and beach bar at other, trees for shelter, Roti sue will come round to sell you a Roti and fresh veg juice-they are wonderful!!
Nelsons dockyard is a good visit, tell them you are staying locally and you don't pay admission (although you need to pay to visit Shirley Heights up the hill), restaurants in there along with a bit of history. We took a boat trip with a local man round the harbour which was interesting.
Further afield, Half Moon bay is lovely but rough for swimming and seaweed. On the whole we were lazy and stayed locally but Joanne will guide you re places to go ie stingray city which we didn't get round to.
November is a good time to visit as start of season and quiet, weather was fab, rain at night when it doesn't matter!
Great big thank you Joanne for sharing your lovely cottage, garden and pool with us, we had an amazing time and it was so good to meet you, you put a lot of effort into keeping your guests happy and it shows! we wouldn't hesitate to come back and miss it all so much.
Regards Nicole & Alan (Wirral UK)"
