"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."

Pleasant and comfortable home base in an off-the-beaten-track area of the island... Recommended!
"We were in Barbados for our second time and the first time we stayed at the Crane. We did so again for the first week, then decided to extend our stay by moving to the Hummingbird House at Bottom Bay.
Upon our arrival, after being almost too pampered at the Crane, we were not sure of our surroundings in a modest, more remote neighborhood on the island. But a good night's sleep took care of that! The Hummingbird House is a clean, comfortable and convenient residence near a few beautiful beaches, and not too far from the Crane and shopping at Six Roads—but a car here is a must. We quickly met Jan and John, the caretakers who were also one of the first residents of this neighborhood, and they were delightful. The second night there we had a small barbecue for friends and they joined in the fun. John stopped by a couple of times after that to clean the pool, but never intrusive at all.
The house has air conditioning but we never turned it on, as the breeze here is delightful. The house is fairly well equipped and the wifi was better than expected, but I wouldn't count on streaming your favorite movies... The kitchen is well equipped and having an outdoor shower really helped to keep the sand out of the house. The neighborhood has a lot of houses pretty close together, but was still very quiet for the most part. There are signs for video surveillance on the street light posts, but I'm not sure where they go to.
We met other neighbors as well: a couple who do their own gardening offered us a huge bag of beautiful lettuce at a very reasonable price. Much better and cheaper than at the market. Don't let the local entrepreneurs at the beach bother you. If you want their help they'll charge a modest amount and be helpful and friendly. If you don't want their help, just smile and tell them you're fine and they'll leave you alone. Petty theft is the major crime problem on the island, so just keep your valuables at home or close to you on the beach.
All in all, after our arrival hesitations, we found the house to be pleasant, comfortable; and the neighborhood to be welcoming and safe. Recommended."
