About O'Brian (OB)

My name is O'Brian and I am born and bred Bajan. Along with my Brother Sheldon we are the proud owners of this cottage. The cottage is named after our mother Barbara. However we have taken our initiative for 'Barbs Cottage' from our father Denzil who has been welcoming guest to this island whilst driving his taxi for the last 50 years.

During your stay either myself, Sheldon or my Dad Denzil is available to you to answer any questions show you the sites or just to say hi at any time.

O'Brian (OB) purchased this house in 2009

Nice and private cottage

  • 4 of 5

We have spend 2 weeks at Barb's cottage. It is a nice property, a litte bit old fashioned but with everything you need!

During our stay we visited the whole Island using the blue, yellow and ZR busses. They brought us everywhere we wanted.

Also we used the services of lovely Jennifer with her taxi, she stands ready whenever you call her against reasonable faires.

Also Maurice is a very nice person and he fixes everything what was required.

Barbados is a beautiful Island with lots of things to do. Snorkeling with turttles, swimming in the Animal Flower Cave, sailing with a catamaran and much more. The people are very nice and helpful.

We loved our stay and when we ever come back to Barbados we will book this property again.

Perfect for the price!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Barbs Cottage. It is a great budget option if you want to situate yourself on the pricier West Coast. The rooms are light and airy and the cottage has everything you might need. The location is fantastic, we went for long walks on the beach most days and it was so handy having Jordan’s supermarket within walking distance.

A few items in the cottage could do with replacing as some things are looking a bit worn and tired, but that would be our only complaint.

OB arranged for us to be collected from the airport which was great and he was also very helpful when we arrived. We were so grateful that he allowed us much needed flexibility with check out time. He was easily contactable via phone if we ever had any queries.

We would definitely come back to Barbs Cottage and will recommend to others.

Perfect Barbados Experience

  • 5 of 5

I spent seven glorious weeks in Barbados at Barb's Cottage. As my first visit to Barbados, Barb's Cottage sounded like a great way to experience an original cottage, with history, in a great location, at a very reasonable price - and it was. As OB said, I was never home! Catching the bus, off to the many beaches on the west coast and more distant locations - never a dull day. Yet my favourite days were with visiting family, the people and the turtles at the local Fitts Beach, and shopping at the local Jordan's Supermarket. OB responded to my inquiries before my arrival and during my stay. He was also interested in my feedback about some upgrades for future renters (couch, cookware, grill, TV). Great time. Thanks for making Barb's Cottage available to me, OB!

Owner's Response: Hi Amy great to hear that you loved both the cottage and my island. We always do our best to ensure that you enjoy both. The couch I will get a new, softer cushion for it. Thank you for staying with us and i do look forward to seeing you again for your annual vacation away from the cold

Two weeks in heaven.

  • 5 of 5

This was the sweetest cottage. My family and I could not have asked for more. We highly recommend this cottage. OB, his business partner and father were so welcoming. Great location, easy beach access and easy buss access. There is a delicious ice cream parlor at the end of the lane. We will definitely be coming back.
