About Andrew Malyon
Annabelles has been family owned now for over 20 years, and was rebuilt from the ground up in 1999. Being a traditional wooden Barbadian house in the sea it requires regular upkeep. Working and living predominantly in Singapore means we don't get to visit as much as we would like to, so we have put together a team of people to help you while you are there. We still hold lots of amazing memories from years gone by with friends and family, and decided in 2012 to open up the house to others, and we hope you enjoy Annabelles as much as we have over the years!!
Andrew Malyon purchased this House in 1992

Amazing place we loved it.
Spacious all round great decking area and facilities, amazing views with the shutters open , very comfituble and relaxed time in the villa.would deffinatley stay again.
Perfect spot didn’t want to leave
Annabelles is the perfect family rental close to one of the best beaches on the island we will be returning time and time again.
What a fabulous villa. What else can I say. It’s in a perfect position, beautifully maintained. You can literally spend hours just gazing out to sea or watching the fish.
A short walk along the road is a fish market that seems to be open all the time and a little stall next to it where you can get your fruit and salad. While your getting that pop into John Moore’s for a drink 🥃
Wanda’s bar is just a few yards away everyone is very friendly.
I can’t recommend this villa too highly
We love Barbados and usually stay in Payne’s Bay at The House. This was totally out of our comfort zone, booking a self catering beach house, in an area we hadn’t visited previously.
Arriving at the property I knew instantly it was perfect for us and that we had definitely made the right decision. I loved the sound of the waves on the rocks below, the openness of the property, it’s beautiful front porch and tropical plants, the wooden floors and shutters, ceiling fans and stunning views. If you’re looking for a true Bajan, laid back style holiday this is perfect. You are litterally on the beach! I loved everything about this property it had great character.
The management team were brilliant, extremely helpful and nothing too much trouble. We loved the area too and enjoyed eating lunch next door at Wandas fantastic food to rival The Cliff, but with a more affordable bill $68BDS lunch for two with drinks!
Annabelles for us was like Home ... we’ve already booked to return.
We loved our stay. The house is completely open to the sea which is perfect for snorkeling. Very clean and well equipped. Reeds bay is a beautiful tranquil beach. Nevada could not have been more helpful.

Very glad you enjoyed your trip to the island, it was a pleasure having you there. Yes, the bay is perfect for snorkelling, its popular with some of the catamaran cruises for that very reason, yet the beach always remains uncrowded, making it an ideal west coast spot getaway for all !
Amazing location such a shame it was impossible to fully enjoy the experience
The property is very open and exposed to the elements and not much has been done to make the house secure, meaning we needed to be very careful with our belongings when we went out. The house alarm system is disabled, most likely due to the fact that the house is so open birds or stray cats can enter and where on the premises during our stay and would set an alarm off. The safe is very small and none of the rooms are sufficiently secure to feel confident that even your clothes would still be there when going out. Especially as it would be very easy to enter the house via the shutters that surround the house. It was also a worry when sleeping (or trying to sleep) at night because the sea was so loud you would not hear an intruder breaking in.
We also were eaten by bugs throughout the night and had no means of protecting ourselves the plugs only worked if you left the lights on so not able to plug in a bug deterrent. Because of the ceiling fans there was no way to have mosquito nets either. The bedrooms as throughout the house does not have glass windows or shutters that fully close, just slatted shutters so the sea at high tide registered at over 75.4 decibels from the constant pounding of the waves against the rocks below the house. We have not been able to sleep throughout the night in two of the bedrooms the third room at the back gave some protection from the noise. By day 5 we were all left exhausted and ready for home.
We booked 8 days and feel the house is really only suitable as a 2 day stop over experience as it is a stunning spot with huge potential and l believe it is in a run down and unsecure state because it is going to have major building work in the near future. Which will be great for future guests.
As it stands today there is a lot of manually opening and shutting of these very heavy window fittings to get the view and they need closing and locking before you go out. Whilst charming and quaint for the first few days it soon becomes a chore. I do not think the reality of staying at this property is properly addressed in the description.
Thunder Bay is a quiet, secluded Beach that regularly gets visited by boat tours for snorkelling due to the abundance of coral reef right on your doorstep. Distance to sea? It comes past your bedroom.
Approx 45 minutes drive from Grantley Adams International, the only airport on Barbados. Car hire is recommended, and there is 1 space for a car at the property.
10 minutes drive to Holetown and Speightstown. 25 minutes to the Kensington Oval (Cricket), most golf courses are within 20 minutes drive.
Mullins for watersports is 5 minutes drive.
Holetown has a shopping centre and petrol station, with many banks and facilities avaliable. Many of the islands best Restaurants are within 10 minutes of the house.
