About Caroline Gill

Caroline Gill purchased this Cottage in 2006
Why Caroline Gill chose Whitehaven
One of the best locations on the island! Family owned property in Bayfield for over 50 years, always went on holiday there as children! Farther Away built in 2005 for the same purpose!
What makes this Cottage unique
Peaceful, beautiful view of the ocean and the sunrise is also glorious!

Farther Away is a hidden gem on the East Coast. The view from the balcony is breathtaking. The house is well equipped and cozy. Caroline was helpful throughout the whole booking process and arrival, helping us to get to the villa safe and sound. We highly recommend to rent a car if staying at Farther Away. It is a 30 minute drive to get to the beaches on the south coast. Inquire about the Sargassum seaweed before booking as the beach was covered with it. The east coast is more affected by it. However, this did not affect our overall experience with the house. It should just be noted if you plan to use the beach throughout your whole stay. Barbados is a beautiful island, as is Farther Away. Thank you for a great family trip.
Stunning location, home from home
What a fabulous place! Clean, spacious, private and very well equipped. The location right by the coast is amazing. Waking up with the sound of the waves every morning is very relaxing. You definately need a car to get around though. We spent most of our days on the west coast for the calm sea and this takes about 30 mins to drive. It was so nice to come back to Farther Away in the evening to chill and play dominos on the deck with the children. Caroline is a great host, she met us at the airport, which after a long flight is superb - nothing worse than arriving in the dark and getting lost trying to find your accommodation! She was always on hand by phone during our stay for any advice we needed. Overall we were really pleased with the accommodation and would have no hesitation in booking the cottage if we return to Barbados. Our only regret is we didn’t stay for two weeks. If you want peace and quiet in a beautiful setting then this is the perfect place to stay.
Excellent lodging, reasonable price, amazing ocean views, all in a friendly neighbourhood!
Great place, great views, and Caroline was amazingly helpful during our stay. She greeted us at the airport, had us follow her to the grocery store, then to the lodging. She checked in with us a number of times during our stay, ensuring all was well, seeing if there was anything that we needed, and then, dropped by and saw us off on our last day.
Not knowing that we were there during a full moon, the sun had set, we were sitting on the back deck, when we all saw a faint amber light, shimmering over the ocean. What is that?! Is it a boat? Is it a UFO?! What is that?! It was, of course, the rising of the moon. We were fortunate to have had a clear night that night, and because of that, we had an unobstructed view of it rising into our night. Truly magical!
Caroline suggested the use of the bug nets at night. The first night, we never bothered. When we awoke the next morning, we had some mosquito bites. Lesson learned. The ensuing nights we all used them. We really appreciated the nets, as we chose to leave the window slats open during the night, enjoying the sound of the surf, and the cool ocean breezes. On those nights when the mosquitos did visit, and with the nets down, there was not really much of any problems.
If you are a sensitive or light sleeper, consider bringing some ear plugs, as on some nights, the surf did get loud due to higher winds and surf.
Thanks for the opportunity to stay, and thanks for your kind, personal service and smiles. What a great place and what a great hostess!
If you want to get away from it all and just relax, this is the place! All you hear is the crashing of waves below. The view is spectacular! The House has everything you could need.
You can enjoy the beach at the bottom of the cliff. It is very shallow and the waves are a blast to play in, or you can just put down a blanket and take in the sun. We only ever had to share the beach on one day!
Take advantage of Christine and David. They are a wealth of knowledge and are amazing hosts. If you need something, they will help you get it.
What an amazing place!
We will be back!

We had the most wonderful time at Farther Away. Christine and David have a fantastic property. They are great a host. The view is unbeatable over the ocean. We had our 2 children with us and it was so nice for them to to have there own room. The deck is huge and the kids loved the hammock. The breeze that runs through the house is wonderful. Christine and David keep the house sooo nice. David's Rum punch is top notch!!! Thanks for the recipe :). David was so nice to meet us at the airport and take is by the grocery store before we got to the house. I would suggest renting a car and exploring the island, so much to see in beautiful Barbados. Thanks again Christine and David. I would definitely book again!!!
I've stayed in Barbados countless times, but never on the East Coast. I was super excited to stay at Farther Away!
Everything from the booking to meeting Christine at the house for the keys was effortless. From the first correspondence to the check up phone call at the house, Christine just makes you feel at home.
The house has everything and anything, then some more! It's the little things that Christine and her husband keep at the house that you very much appreciate; all the different spices in the kitchen, the padding for the seats outside, the laundry facilities, I could go on and on.
The house is very private and secluded which was nice for my Husband and I. Waking up in the morning and enjoying your coffee and enjoying the view of the Caribbean Sea is breathtaking and I wish I was there right now.
I would not hesitate to book Farther Away again!
