The Cabin is fully in close, it's a spacious 3 bedroom house with private rooms. The area is also very peaceful and quiet. The House consist of a toilet, shower and face basin sink and hot water. The kitchen have a stove, fridge and cupboards for storing food, snacks etc.... The property is also big enough for camping out, just incase you're a adventurous and outdoors person and love camping.
Since we're located in the West of the Island there's so much to see and do.When visiting the many, gorgeous West Coast Beaches in Barbados, you will witness miles of uninterrupted clean, white sandy beaches on which you can relax and enjoy the warm sunshine.
This coast is excellent and well known for water sports, Snorkelling, Parasailing, Sailing cruises, picnics, romantic walks or just swimming with the turtles. There are great Restaurants and Bars along the west coast.You can also enjoy some duty-free and souvenir shopping.
West Coast beaches have a wide appeal especially to families, retired couples, teenagers and kids or anyone looking for safe beaches, relaxation and lots of fun.
You can also rent-a-car, bicycle(s) or scooter(s) to visit the many beautiful beaches of the west coast, explore the tranquil waters or just relax. While you're enjoying the beaches leave some time out to take in the many sights, activities and tours in Barbados, you won't regret it.
We know you'll have an adventurous stay. :)
Our neighborhood is a small village where every one here is family. I grew up here as a child and now myself and Kim have the pleasure of sharing our family home with guest.
We're located in a central area, 5 minutes in walk to the nearest public Transportation or you can take an energetic 10-15 minute walk to the main road, where you can get any Bus or Minivan going from the West, East, South to the North of the Island.
1. Never change around the furniture.
2. No abusive language and no violent behavior.
3. No smoking in the house, we have a veranda and a beautiful garden. For such activities.
My husband and I stayed at the universal chattel house for 5 nights and had a very pleasant experience!! Kim and Yusuf greeted us and immediately told us where we could find everything (i.e. Best snorkeling beaches, inexpensive restaurants and supermarket) and they were incredibly friendly and helpful. When we had some minor issues, we would reach out to them via text and they would always respond within a timely manner.
The house is very clean and basic (mosquito netting over the bed was a major plus) but you have everything you could need for a comfortable stay. The house was very conveniently located as the beach and the bus stop is only a 10 minute walk down the hill. The neighbors were friendly and we felt safe the whole time we were there only be careful walking up the hill at night as it's very dark and can be slippery on the rocks.
The only tip I would give is bring earplugs if you are a light sleeper as there are a few roosters in the vicinity.
Great location on the west coast and such a different experience being local .
Yusuf & Kim were great hosts and armed us with all the information necessary to make the most of our stay.
They were there if you needed, in a relaxed friendly way.
The house is as the pictures and very airy and clean.
Using the cut to get to the beach means you can be on paynes bay beach in a 10 minute stroll.
From there you can walk all the way up to Holetown along the beach.
There is a bus stop there to with buses to pretty much anywhere on the island (bridgetown and holetown very easy and quick to get to)
Look out for the small family of monkeys living in the trees near the cut.
Local places to eat and drink just down the road from the bus stops, Karibu was a personal favourite with great Jerk Chicken, Mac & cheese and other fresh local food.
Supermarkets in both directions on the buses with my personal favourite being Massy in Holetow(more choice than some of the others)
This is a very relaxed place to stay and would recommend it to any one looking for a quiet, basic and different retreat from the noise of the south coast and hotels of the west coast.
Will definitely be back next time im in Barbados.
Yusuf was a wonderful host and we had a great stay at the Universal Chattel House. The photos are pretty accurate and the cabin is close to the beach, just a short walk downhill. Our neighbors and all the people of the village where the cabin is were very nice. As a host Yusuf is there if you need him and he offers help in any situation like hiring a car or ordering a cab.
If you were looking for nice and affordable place to stay, rent Yusufs cabin!
We had a pleasant stay at Yusuf's place. He is a great host and if you stay there you can experience Barbados from an other, more local, side!
We loved Barbados! From Yusuf's place we were able to get around easily ... a short walk down the gulley shortcut to the beach, bus stops and many eateries. We love going local and this place was perfect ... a basic chattel house in the heart of a lovely friendly village. The pictures show accurately how the cabin is. We chatted with the neighbours and walked up to the little shop or bakery and never felt uncomfortable or intimidated despite being far from the "typical tourist area". Yusuf's cabin is excellent value for the twenty seven gbp per night we paid ... We had the whole cabin and it was just so relaxed like being at home ... the a/c in bedroom was a godsend! Take repellent for those pesky mosquitoes and earplugs for the enthusiastic cockerels!!! Yusuf was very flexible about check-out which we appreciated. Thanks Yusuf - a great first experience of the island that is Barbados!!
Me and my boyfriend stayed two weeks in Yusuf and Kims house and had a great time! The house is very beautiful and located in a great area, close to the beach and some restaurants. Yusuf and Kim are very helpfull and friendly, so we hope to come back one day and we recommend them to others!

Universal Chattel House was a good experience. The Cabin is very simple and rustic but we had a very comfortable and fun stay. The location is excellent with only a 5 minute walk from the beach and the supermarket is not too far either. Yusuf and Kim are excellent hosts and they helped us out with everything we needed.

We love nature,hiking & camping out. We also love meeting new and interesting people. We're out going once it is a place of interest. (1) we can't live with out adventuring (2) fresh air (3) a great beach day (4) long drive to the springs & the country side. It will be an honour to have you as our guest to share our beautiful Island in the sun with you. OUR motto is "Always keep life balance"
