"Take to heart when the owners say, " a scenic out-of-the-way area in eastern Barbados. " We greatly enjoyed the quiet and lack of crowds. However, this means driving to everything. There are no restaurants, bars, shops within walking distance. If you are looking for a place to relax, with lots of quiet, and the ability to get to empty beaches this is perfect. If you want the flexibility to walk to bars, restaurants or be in the thick of things, it won't work. We used Hummingbird House as a base for day trips and loved coming home to quiet evenings spent on the porch with a nice breeze.
All of the amenities in the house are great. TV with cable, laptop with free wi fi, and the AC in the bed rooms worked great. The kitchen was well equipped with a fridge, microwave, coffee maker, washer/dryer. They could maybe use a few more plates and cutlery. The pool isn't huge, but is nice and deep and good for relaxing and playing with the kids.
Barbados in general exceeded my expectations, and so did Hummingbird House. For Barbados the weather was much better than I anticipated, nice cool breezes and no oppressive humidity. Diving was good with a ton of sea life, and snorkeling with the turtles was a major trip highlight. Negatives would be more litter than I would like to see around beaches. Also, traffic in the main areas was much worse than I expected. Around Hastings, St Lawrence Gap...."

"We had a fantastic two weeks at this beautifully furnished and very spacious apartment. The residential street where it is located is very quiet and the beach is very close by. There is no night life but a couple of restaurants are within walking distance as is the Crane Resort. Everything is supplied including dishwasher and laundry detergent (no food) and the kitchen has all the cooking utensils you could want. A car is not necessary unless you want to go sightseeing, but even then you could take a taxi and have the driver do a tour for you."

"We we so glad we included Farther Away in our visit. We stayed on the west side also, it is fun in a different way but the unspoiled beauty here is wonderful. The view, the breeze, the decor, a visit from monkeys, and the attentiveness of the host are all amazing."
