  • Very comfortable home on the best beach for swimming and walking in Barbados

    "Length of stay: 2 months - Jan 2 to March 1, 2017 # of people in our group: 2 to 5. Ages 30 - 58 Location: west coast, North Brighton Beach Rd, neighbourhood of Black Rock, between Bridgetown &Holetown Neighbourhood Residents: permanent, part-time and vacationers Lyriston house is on the landward side of N Brighton beach road. Beach access is a 2 minute walk across road and down a path. One of the house owners, Steven, lives in a cottage at the back of the property. It was a great benefit and pleasure having him there for questions and his friendly assistance. Front porch is lovely for morning coffee/evening drinks. Back yard cools off & always breezy by 3:00pm for relief from the heat of the day. Mango, lime and orange tree in the back yard. Brighton Beach is in the middle of 3 beaches. Brandon, Brighton & Paradise. It is perfect for ALL swimmers no matter your skill level. There are no resorts on these beaches so you often have the beach almost all to yourself during the work week. Weekends are "busier" with local families, and some cruise ship tourists. But still very quiet compared to other west & south coast beaches that have resorts lining the shoreline. You will never see rows upon rows of rented chaises & umbrellas on Brighton beach (or Brandon and Paradise) If you are looking for "party central" do not rent here. (Go to the south coast) If you are looking for a quieter vacation in a relaxing Caribbean beach neighbourhood, then Lyriston house and Brighton beach are perfect. We easily explored all over the island by bus. Restaurants 10-20 minutes by taxi. Didn't rent a car during our 2 month stay. Didn't need it. Carlton grocery store (12 minute walk away) provides shuttle rides home when you spend $25US or more. We used a taxi to & from airport, when out after dark & to save time when we took day trips with more than one destination. We highly recommend Daniel Jones 246-841-8778. He lives in Black Rock very close to Lyriston house. His car is immaculately clean, he's ON TIME, knowledgeable, friendly and professional. Call him or message using WhatsApp. There's ALWAYS something to do/see in Barbados. To use buses efficiently, look up Route Finder/Transport Board Barbados online. I would rent Lyriston again. It is clean, kitchen small but stocked with equipment, (needs 1 more fry pan) comfortable roomy bedrooms/beds, 2 good sized bathrooms, large dining room, nice sized living room, but it would be improved with new couch & chairs."

  • Great location, great service, great beach

    "We spent 10 days here at Glitter Bay. We have stayed at Glitter bay on many other occassions but never at the Princess Suite. What great place. Just as pictured , maybe even better. Perfectly maintained, thanks to our absolutely charming and friendly housekeeper I have no hesitation about recommending this unit to anyone. The owners were also the easiest to deal with and are really genuinely concerned that you have a great vacation."

  • A beautiful place to stay.

    "This was our first holiday to Barbados and we have had the most amazing time. We had a long flight delay, but this was no trouble as Brian was happy to meet us at the apartment not matter how late we arrived. He was very welcoming and helpful. Cathrin, the owner always replies quickly to emails and answered all our questions. The apartment is lovely, a real home from home. The complex is small and quiet and everyone was really friendly. The walk down to the beach does take 20-30 mins but we really enjoyed the walk. There is a car hire place nearby, Top car rentals, they were very helpful and we were able to hire a car at short notice. The local ZR buses are brilliant, an experience not to be missed and at 2 barbadian dollars each, a very cheap way of travelling around the island. The local supermarket, Masseys, is quite a walk away, probably about 30 mins which is not ideal in the heat but they do have a courtesy bus which will bring you home so this is perfect. Eating out is quite expensive but we did enjoy some lovely places. Shakers is a must, look at the recent reviews on trip advisor. A little shack that we would have walked past, but the food was beautiful, would definitely recommend the blackened fish!! The staff were really friendly but you need to book as they are always busy. A trip to St. Nicholas Abbey is also worth a visit, a beautiful setting, lots of history and a lovely cafe! So many wonderful memories of our first trip to Barbados, will not be our last. Thank you to Cathrin for providing such a lovely base."
