  • 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!"

  • Fabulous

    "This place is excellent. My wife and I have stayed at a number of places all over Barbados - Christchurch, St. James, St. Lucy. But we really felt at home here. We get hot and always need fans. Here was so cool and breezy at all times. It was amazing. There is AC in the bedroom but we did not need it. One warning, secure the doors because the wind will slam them quickly for you. <smile> The bed is huge and comfortable. It has some kind of special mattress. The decor is clean, fresh and islandy (I made this word up myself). Everything was flawless. If you want to relax and read a book, walk down to the extremely close beach, take a brief bus to town, it is all possible and easy from here. The owners are warm and friendly and at the same time respect your privacy. We would stay here again in a second. All the little things were thought of - towels, soap, electric kettle, microwave, books to read, fans. We saw no bugs or insects. It was immaculately clean. Highly recommended! It is BETTER than the pictures."

  • Lovely stay at De Hideaway

    "We spent a pleasant two weeks at De Hideaway in January, 2014. We had read the reviews and seen the pictures and were happy to find all exactly as advertised. DH is huge, spotlessly clean, well equipped and wide open to Barbados’ beautiful sunny weather. The house fronts onto a very quiet, cul-de-sac and backs onto a deep, tropical forest complete with a resident troupe of monkeys that will wake you up in the morning using the roof above your bedroom as a shortcut between trees. Lots of fun. The entire length of the living room, dining room and kitchen is fitted with louvered, folding doors that open completely to the outside. You can jump directly into the pool from inside the living room. The pool is as nice as it looks in the pictures and is professionally maintained to a high standard. The entire back deck and pool are completely private so that you can refresh yourself in the pool any way you like with confidence that you are alone . . . just you and the monkeys. With its four large bedrooms, four and a half bathrooms and huge living area, this house is suitable for groups of four to six people. More might make it a bit crowded. Bobby was at the house when we arrived to show us around and make sure we knew where everything was and how to contact her if necessary. We did on one occasion (we chose text) and she responded with the answer to our question within a few minutes. Bobby checked in with us once during our two weeks to make sure all was well. Do you need a car? The house really is only a few minutes from shopping, banks and the beach. We timed it walking: seven minutes to town and ten minutes (uphill) back. Unfortunately, the walk is on a busy road with poor accommodation for pedestrians. We felt better about going to town after our rental car arrived and would recommend you rent a car for your stay at DH. Car rental rates are very reasonable and having one available puts all of Barbados at your disposal. We recommend you ask Bobby to arrange a car for you. Internet connection? Wi-Fi signal is good throughout the property and on the deck. Food and kitchen: There’s good grocery shopping just down the hill from the house at a large, Superstore. De Hideaway’s kitchen is large with modern appliances and two, full size refrigerators. Dine in the kitchen, in the dining room or outside on the back deck. All are pleasant. When you tire of cooking, there are ten good restaurants within easy walking distance."
