Let me just start off by saying we plan on going back to Barbados and staying in this cottage .The many pros far outway the few cons.
We had 4 adults and one 2 1/2 year old.
First thing I want to talk about is the owner of the house, Barbara.
She arranged for our transportation to the house and was there to greet us.She is witty with a great sense of humor.She knows the island as she built the house she lives in across the street over 30 years ago. She had arranged for a full size crib for the baby and had it delivered and set up in one of the bedroom before we arrived.Soon after a tutorial about the property she took us food shopping.The next day she took us to her favorite open air fish market where we were able to pick out the exact fish we wanted and watched as they were descaled, deboned and filleted for us(half the price of the frozen supermarket fish). We had 5 dinners of fish and some fish taco lunches. The supermarkets are expensive but barbara guided us to the more reasonable local produce and foods to save us money. The reason Im talking about food so much is that we were so comfortable at the house that we ended up eating all but 1 meal at the house and that was 300 ft down the street at the Bush Bar.
The cottage has been totally remodeled and although the bedrooms are a little small (each with there own full bath and air conditioner) the open living space is wonderful.The kitchen is well stocked and every time we mentioned to Barbara that we missed something from home like a lime squeezer or a chair was broke etc. the new items were there the next day. Pretty cool. Nice tv with netflix and many of the popular US channels.The outside porch has a great seating area and a lower covered patio also.Chairs, beach towels and umbrella for the beach.
Now the main reason this place is so wonderful is the BEACH. Private aqua blue water and nice sandy beach.Our baby couldn't get enough of the water and when we were back on the house porch could swim in her own pool provide at the house. I didn't take any pictures of the house but did of the beautiful nightly sunsets as you are facing directly west.
As stated in the description of the house there is a Power plant down the street. But you don't hear anything. Its just there.There is broken coral pieces in the water from the reef about 5-600 feet out in the ocean.
So Please don't rent this place because if it gets totally booked we won't be able to go back. Just Kidding
