Just in case you missed it. A car is included for free :)
Keep the house as you found it-You are not expected to clean the whole house down when you leave but do not leave garbage about except in the bins. Wares in the sink should be washed out.Any stains, drink/sauce spills should be cleaned up. Any furniture moved during your stay should be replaced in it's original location.
Any damage done to furniture, amenities or the car should be pointed out before check out. If not pointed a further discovery fee of $20us would be deducted from the deposit.
Please ask before washing sheets. Using bleach damages the sheets. The housekeeper is responsible for this and letting her do her job saves you from being liable for damage. A cleaning fee of $40us will be deducted from the security deposit if the above conditions aren't met on check out.
Excessive AC use-
Running The AC when you aren't home significantly affects our ability to offer quality accommodations at an affordable price. If it is discovered that you have left the AC on while out, there will be a $20us charge per instance. NOTE ONCE YOU ARE PHYSICALLY AT THE HOUSE THE IS NO RESTRICTION ON USING THE AC UNITS
Smoking is not allowed inside the house but you may smoke outside if you wish. Smoking is also prohibited in the car. If the house or car need to be cleaned due to smoking in it a charge of $40us would apply for both.
Kason's place was great. A really nice home in a quiet neighborhood. There are a couple of nice beaches within walking distance but you can go anywhere on the island in the free car provided which also comes with a GPS. The free car make's Kason's place the best deal on the island. Also included for free are a cell phone, a land line, and a roku so you can watch Netflix or other things at night or on a rainy day. While we never met Kason he did arrange for us to be picked up and dropped off at the airport by his very nice sister in law. Again for free. We would definitely stay there again.
Don't think we could have asked for more from Kason. The house was functional and had everything we needed for our 2 week stay. Good, and quiet neighborhood. We felt safe walking around. Having a car made this location feasible for us and our 2 year old baby.
The house is pretty much exactly as shown, in a quiet neighbourhood with comfortable beds, good air conditioning and the Wifi works although it can be intermittent. Kason and his friends go out of the way to keep your every want covered. The house is a solid A frame which includes all the appliances you need, like a coffee maker, kettle, microwave, blender and washing machine with a line outside for drying. I was impressed that Kason has put 5KW worth of solar panels on the roof which makes perfect sense in such a bright hot place.
There are two cars that Kason uses as part of his rentals, the white Ford Focus and the blue-green Toyota. We ended up with the Ford Focus which included air conditioning, automatic transmission, power windows and good tires. The GPS, with which we bookmarked all our favorite locations, is indispensable as turn-by-turn navigation on the (website hidden) map app do not work. Beware that gas prices are double on the island compared to North America, so filling the Focus with three quarters tank cost $75CND ($125BDS - $3.25 per litre). Driving is a delight as Barbadians are a courteous and patient bunch, who honk when going around blind corners/hills and as a way to say thank you. Flashing their lights means go ahead. Be prepared for narrow roads with no shoulder and unexpected obstacles like pedestrians, bicycles and goats.
Bottom Bay, one of the most beautiful rugged, if windy, beach on the island is a five minute drive away (take the beach umbrella with you). A shopping centre including grocery store called Emerald City is a seven minute drive and includes a "Lime" store where you can get a micro or nano sim card for $2.50US ($5BDS) and a 1GB seven day data plan for $7.50US($13BDS) which is useful for smart phone internet access. If you do a lot of driving as we did, then you also want some minutes ($0.50BDS/minute) for emergencies. You will want to experience St. Lawrence Gap, Harrisons Cave (with the Eco Tour aka spelunking option, a highlight of our trip! ), one of the gullies like Welchman's Hall or Hunte, the Wildlife Reserve (2pm for feeding time), Oistin's Fish Fry, the Beach Extravaganza at Harbour Lights, walking on the Hastings Boardwalk and the Cheapside market in Bridgetown.
If you are vegetarian, you can eat well off vegetarian menus at all the following locations: Naru on Hastings street (roughly $32US per person with drink, but on the beach! Get the 5pm seating for a sunset), Harlequins on St. Lawrence Gap ($35US per) and The Good Life off Hastings (tiny cafe, $15US per). Most places have shakes and look for a local drinks called Sorrel (red sugary goodness) and Seamoss (tan coloured and great when included with ground flax, almond milk, etc.).
If you need catering or would just like to eat a homemade meal at Kason's house, ask about Angela Hall who is a superb cook and lives very close.
Thank you Kason! The accommodation was exactly as described! The house was clean, in a great location- close to the beach & restaurants, and perfect for our stay! It was an amazing to have the car with GPS! Communication with Kason was quick and concise and have no complaints about our stay- highly recommended Air B&B!
Kason was a great host, he picked us up at the airport and took us back at the end of the trip. He was quick to respond during our stay when we had questions. Overall, a great experience!
Kason was a gracious host. He provided me with a phone in case of emergencies, the car ran smoothly and I was traveling alone so he assured me if I was lost or in any trouble I could give him a ring anytime. The house is cute, you can open the doors and windows for a nice breeze. It's in sort of the country, very quiet area and there's wifi, the air works great and it's overall a very comfortable place. There are a few beaches a few minutes away and a supermarket a short drive away as well. I liked staying here. It's maybe a 30 minutes drive to Bridgetown but you get to go through some pretty cool neighborhoods on the way.
Kason's place was perfect for us! We had come down for the weekend to surf and visit the island. Kason picked us up and dropped us off at the airport which made our travel day a lot easier and relaxing. The house was great and the air conditioning in the bedroom was exactly what we needed to sleep after days in the sun. Having the car to go to the beaches and explore the island was our favorite part!
