  • Three weeks on the West Coast

    "My family (Mom, Dad and three boys 17, 15 and 12) spent three weeks in July at Barb's Cottage and loved every minute. The cottage is as described in the listing and in previous reviews and it has everything we needed; plenty of towels, comfortable beds, a great outdoor shower, a nice little outdoor patio, ceiling and standing floor fans, fast internet and a washing machine. From the initial contact the owner OB answered all our questions and was very helpful. We were met at the cottage by OB's father who later dropped of mangoes - the best we've ever had! We were at the beach across the road almost every day as it was the kids' favourite one. We had a car for the first week but it was not necessary unless you really wanted to explore the island on your own time schedule, the bus was great. For the last two weeks we walked to the local grocery store for supplies and treats, and took the bus (the yellow one as well as the blue one - both $2Barbados - they came by often) into Holetown. On Sunday mornings the ice cream truck came outside our door too. We had a great stay here and I would definitely recommend it. It's in a super location and it is easy to get around. We would stay here again for sure."

  • Perfect house, perfect location, perfect everything!!!

    "We had such a wonderful time at shutters! This is the second time we have stayed here and I couldn't recommend a better place to spend your holiday. The house is lovely and has everything you could possibly need. We spent lazy days by the pool, had bbqs in the evenings and watched the sun go down on the upstairs balcony. The staff keep the house exceptionally clean. Barbados itself is just amazing. The beaches are gorgeous - we would recommend the beach down the road, crane and bottom bay for stunning views. My partner is a keen scuba diver and would recommend wreckers and reefers in speightstown. He even swam with a humpback whale and her calf - a once in a lifetime opportunity. A few things to try when you are there - ten saints lager, one love bar on a Sunday for karaoke, John Moore bar on the main road for cheap drinks, Jeffersons cookout at the end of the road, and the food vans dotted around. All in all, I would thoroughly recommend a stay at shutters. We had a perfect holiday and can't wait to go back!"
