Why Jackie Harper chose Weston
We chose to have Shutters in Lower Carlton because I'd visited Barbados many times and wanted to have a house with a Bajan feel away from the massive hotels. It turns out to have been a wise choice because the neighbourhood is very safe and the neighbours extremely friendly and helpful. Many of our guests leave the house on first name terms with the neighbours.

We an adult family of 7 spent two weeks at Shutters. We have stayed all over the West coast of the island over the years and would definitely return to Shutters. The villa was very well equipped for all our needs, including little things like cool bags. Due to its location , 5 mins up the hill, we found it much quieter as its off the main highway. Also you get a lovely breeze through the house, so we found we didn,t need to use the a/c at night as the fans were sufficient which we preferred. Communication with property owner and housekeeper was excellent.. I would highly recommend Shutters if you are looking for a villa in a good neighbourhood with the best beach on the island 5 minutes on foot down the hill.
We just returned from an amazing family holiday at Shutters, it is situated in a residential area away from the busy tourist areas enabling you to experience the real Barbados, there is a lovely beach a couple of minutes walk away, where we spent many an evening watching the beautiful sunset. We were greeted by the lovely Eudora on arrival who was always very helpful. The house is very light, airy and spacious, it is well equipped and maintained and very clean. The garden is also very large and well maintained by the bubbly Kathy. The people of Barbados are extremely friendly,warm and welcoming, there are many lovely places to eat locally including Jefferson’s at the bottom of the road or a bit further away something a little upmarket Lone star garage was lovely, some of the family went to The Cliff - which they said was amazing.A highlight of the holiday was snorkelling with the turtles and over a shipwreck, surfing on the south coast, horse riding along the beach on the East coast and watching England versus The West Indies at Kensington oval. The whole holiday was breathtaking and memorable. Jackie the owner is so helpful and friendly, so easy to deal with. Thank you Jackie
Thank you Jayne for your fabulous review.
We are so glad you had such a wonderful family holiday.
We look forward to seeing you back at Shutters in the future.
We just returned from our visit to Barbados, Shutters was absolutely perfect! The house was beautiful and well maintained by the housekeeper Eudora who was very helpful throughout our entire stay. We were in the perfect location to enjoy the beach and easily get to town for shopping and food. Our kids loved having the pool out back and can not wait to visit again next year, the house had everything we needed and Jackie was a pleasure to work with and very accommodating! We will definitely be returning to Shutters!
Thank you Justine
I hear you were the perfect guests.
We look forward to your next booking.
Shutters is a fantastic
Shutters was wonderful, well equipped and kept clean by the lovely Eudora. Near beautiful beaches, especially Reeds Bay which is just down the road. A five minute drive into HOLETOWN with a supermarket, shops and some great restaurants . If you can go to Surfside on a Sunday night to listen to a steel band, Oistens on Friday and although slightly more expensive Lone Star Garage restaurant is a must. Would recommend Huntes Garden ,Wildlife Reserve and the Animal flower cave. A great villa in a great location, we will defiantly be back soon. The Bristol Chinnock’s. Thank you to Jenni and Fi x
Thank you to the Chinnock family for that lovely review. We're so pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Shutters, and that you seemed to have made the most of all that is going on around. We look forward to your return.
Shutters...exactly what we were looking for!
Shutters was the perfect place for our group of 7 to stay! Eudora was there to greet us as we came up the front steps. The house was exactly what we were hoping for...large bedrooms, ample washrooms, great yard and amenities! Although we had been to Barbados many times in the past, we had never stayed on the West coast before. It did not disappoint! The kids loved the pool...I am sure our 12 year old would have slept in it if we let him! It was great to have Wi-Fi for our 16 year old too! Perfect house for a larger group. Roosters take a little getting used to but after a few nights, we didn't notice them! Jefferson down the street is wonderful and we would definitely recommend going to eat there...food is incredible. I would recommend this house to families who want to stay together, but still enjoy having a bit of space to rest and relax. We hope to be back one day! Thank you Jennifer and Eudora for everything!
Thank you so much for taking the time to write your thoughts about Shutters. Our family must mirror yours....the kids live in the pool and we class Jefferson's our favourite 'restaurant'. Lower Carlton isn't on the regular 'tourist' list but it's such a great Bajan area. Looking forward to seeing you on your return. J
Home from Home in the Sun!
Shutters is a real home from home with everything you could possibly need, kept spotless by the housekeeper and gardener. Great location to explore the island from with the best beach in Reeds Bay at the bottom of the road - an early morning swim is a perfect start to each day! We loved Huntes Gardens, Crane beach including lunch at the hotel, Bathsheba, North Point Flower caves and the Fishpot at Little Good Harbour. Would highly recommend Shutters and will definitely be returning.
Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review; it is always helpful for other guests. Yes, I agree, our local beach takes some beating and that early morning dip you describe is heaven.
I am delighted that you found the house so comfortable. We look forward to welcoming you again.
Lower Carlton is an ideal village to sample Bajan life. It is mainly residential but there is a fish market and fruit & veg stall which are excellent for BBQ supplies. The Carlton Variety Store is within 3 minutes walk of Shutters - basic supplies can be purchased there (eggs/milk/bread etc) but the owner - Jefferson - does excellent BBQ'd local dishes on Thurs, Fri and Sat nights and a bar week nights where locals chat, and play cards and dominos (a lovely place to go for a beer and Jefferson's fantastic rum punch). St Alban's Church is about 3 minutes walk down the road and is the perfect setting, right on the beach, for a wedding or renewing vows. There are also several restaurants within 5 or 10 minutes walk of Shutters, and the Lone Star and Mullins restaurants are both within a 5 minutes bus ride. The highway at the bottom of the road follows the west coast so access to Bridgetown including the Kensington Oval cricket ground, Holetown and Speightstown and beyond is easy by the fantastic (and very entertaining) bus services.
