Bev, the host, was absolutely fantastic!! I could not have picked a better place to stay in Barbados. She went out of her way to make sure I had everything I needed. She picked me up from the airport quite late at night and dropped me at the beach or wherever I needed to go without hesitation. And then she would always collect me so I didn't have to worry about public transportation. Although by the sounds of it, her house is located only a short walk to the beach and Oistins.
I didn't end up staying in the room that was advertised as there was a crossover with one of her friends who was also staying there, so I can't comment on that room. But the room I stayed in was more than comfortable. The bed was great, there was ample storage and the room was right next to the bathroom. Bev made me feel very welcome and her home became my home away from home for the few days I was there. There's a great patio for sitting out on at night and I saw some beautiful sunsets.
Bev's daughter Laura, who I communicated with to organise my stay, was also great! She replied very quickly to all my questions and ensured my arrival would go smoothly. Bev is a real local and knows all the good spots to go and is friendly with many of the local people. She invited me to go with her on all her regular outings, I got to experience Barbados like a genuine local which made me love the place even more! I can't wait to come back!
I would highly recommend staying with Bev, her house is lovely, in a quiet and safe neighbourhood and she is great company. I came as a stranger and left as a friend. Thank you again Laura and Bev for a wonderful stay!!
Everything went very well, we got picked up at the airport and were showed a very beautiful beach. The room was very nice and we felt very welcomed! Thank you!
Given the short time/dates that I spent in Barbados, I found Laura and Beverley to be quite accommodating (as I was only vacationing in Barbados for 3 nights - during Cropover).
The location of the home remains private - which made for a great 'escape'. A car is recommended however, given the fact that it not along any of the bus routes.
Despite the larger protective dogs next door (making me miss my own dog at home), Beverley was very welcoming and practically made it her duty to ensure that my stay was comfortable and enjoyable.
And it was!
I stayed with Bev for 3 days in June and found her place to be great. It is clean and spacious and Bev herself is a caring and kind host.
It really helps when you stay with a 'local' like Bev as she knows the city well and was happy to give me a fantastic tour of all the sites.
My trip was made even more enjoyable as Bev happily organised my short trip by inviting me along to her usual social activities which gave me a great opportunities to meet many of her friends, an ideal situation for a lone traveller.
Laura, her daughter, was great at answering my questions prior to booking and really made me feel at ease as I was pretty nervous about travelling alone to a new place.
Overall, Laura, Bev (and her two dogs - Champ and Lucy), are a great credit to the AirBnB site and welcomed me with open arms. I would happily return to Bevs lovely home and would recommend this place for people who want to get a genuine Bajan experience.
The room in this house was exactly what I was looking for, I had travelled alone to Barbados for the first time and Bev was a very welcoming host. The house is on a very quite street, this makes for a restful nights sleep, but it is also very close to the "action" (10-15 minute walk to Oistins, and close to a bus route). Since I was travelling by myself, Bev took me out and showed me the sights, we went up to Bathsheba, into town, and many other places in the 2 nights I stayed here. Bev knows this island, and she knows many many interesting people that live here.
The room itself is large, with 2 big closets and a vanity area, lots of windows for a nice breeze at night. The private washroom is also well equipped.
