The space

New Listing:
Please always ask us for availability as this booking system sometimes show that we are fully booked but we do have availability.

This charming duplex guest-house is built from coral stone. A Home away from Home.
The accommodation is elegantly furnished in a Caribbean-European style. The beautiful decorated flat has 3 bedrooms, a large living-dining room (part is my office) but there is a living room and balcony (upstairs for the guests of the rooms, complete kitchen, 2 baths (one en-suite), balcony, terrace and garden.

This advertisement is for the small room yellow or the dark blue room. The 2 rooms have a shared bath in the middle of those rooms. This was never a problem as the maid take care of the bathroom & common areas several times per week.

The yellow room has 2 single beds or 1 king size bed on request and the blue room ha a double and a single bed.
Our bedrooms have matching decorated finishes and ceiling fans. At request after arrival air-conditioning can be obtained at the cost of 5 US per night. Mosquito nets on windows but we don't have problems with mosquitoes just the guests feel better when netting is there :-).
Free safe box and faster WI-FI.
Please bring your own laptop or any other devise.
The guest-house rooms share a lounge ( small living room), kitchen and a balcony. In the lounge is a SAT TV, Stereo System incl. MP3 player. Coffee-maker, toaster, fridge, iron & board are provided upstairs for the guest. Complete shared kitchen downstairs.

The distance to Dover beach ( see pic.) is approx. 100 meter / yards. The beach at Sandals + Turtle Beach Club Hotel which are five star hotels is approx. 200 meter / yards away. More beaches are close by.
Fresh sheets, towels and room service are provided twice per week.
The Maid will do your washing in the laundry room.
From the airport it will take about 20 min. to your accommodation by taxi or 45 min. by bus.
Rates are with fan use.
Smoking is allowed but not in the bedrooms.
The location Saint Lawrence Gap is a preferable area for visitors as there are many hotels, restaurants, beach bars, bar, discos, mini marts, shops, banks and the night life of Barbados is in 5 minutes walking distance. The house is still far enough away from the night life area to avoid disturbance through loud music.

Golf, Squash, Tennis, Fitness center and most water sports like diving, sailing and Jet Ski’s are easily accessible. The bus stop is about 150 yards/meter away. There are buses, mini-buses and route-taxis going to the capital Bridgetown approx. every 5 min (which is about 15 min. away) and to other parts of the island until midnight. The bus fare is $ 2.00 BDS.

The Internet advertisement for activities are often more expensive than special deals at last minute. Most transfers offered in the net are more expensive than if you take a taxi at the airport.

Therefore we suggest you wait until you are in Barbados for the best deals as we get all the specials on advertisements.

Guest access

The guest-house rooms share a lounge, kitchen and a balcony. In the lounge is a SAT TV, Stereo System incl. MP3 player. A coffee-maker, hot water kettle, toaster, fridge, iron and board are provided upstairs for the guest. Complete shared kitchen downstairs.

Interaction with guests

The guests are meeting either in the living room or on the balcony.

We are always available for our guests. On request we do a short welcome briefing on the day after arrival. We explain the island, bus transportation, which activities are value for money and which might not. Like in many tourist places some of the activities are very expensive or have no value.
We let people know which companies, dive schools or boots are run by respectful companies.

I am sometimes shocked when I read the Internet reviews and wonder if some people write their own reviews. Explain what guests will actually find at places for interest and the rates of entrance. Opening hours and duty free shopping. Guest can asked any questions they have at that meeting as well.

Other things to note

The guests have their own space and can feel like home.
AC available at cost, rates here are with fan use.
I give people best advise for the Island and activities if they like to make the best of their trip to Barbados.

Brigitte's place exceeded our expectations and offered incredible value. We are 2 males, the room was in good order in a nice home. Kitchen facilities were well equipped to do a lot of our own cooking. We enjoyed the walkability of things like the beach, restaurants and the Gap. Online listing said shared bathroom and kitchen but we ended up enjoying the whole space to outselves by chance. Brigitte was away, but her team of Janet, Rudi and Barbara were all wonderful. Thank you!

Brigitte's place is in a very convenient location close to Dover Beach (3 min walk) and other great beaches (Sandy Beach my personal favorite 20 min walk or short $2 bus ride), St Lawrence's Gap bars and restaurants. Brigitte herself is a highly knowledgable local who clearly has great experience in hosting and keeping her guests comfortable and happy. Brigitte went above and beyond to help me with an issue with my Visa appointment at the embassy and goes to show that she truly cares about all of her tenants. Highly recommended and I will definitely be back to try getting a spot at her booked-out spot in front of Sandy beach in the near future! Thanks :)

Great location. My room was clean and the pictures online are accurate. Brigitte recommended the best island tour for my family. We were given pamphlets of other tours offered by tour guides on the road so we were able to compare. In the end, Brigittes recommended tour included the most desirable destinations. Would visit Barbados again!

Great host, nice room, comfortable bed, friendly staff (cleaning lady, gardener, assistant)! Although the host smokes in the house, you really don't smell it at all as all the windows in every room are always open. Also, other reviews took issue with the fact that there is a gate with a padlock inside the house which must remain locked at all times. As someone who grew up on another Caribbean island, I can tell you that this is the norm for houses, regardless of how safe the neighborhood is. We were two gay men and felt comfortable and completely safe at all times at the house and on the island. Do not be put of by the need for this level of protection for homes. It's just the way it is. Lastly, whether at a hotel or a guesthouse, might I encourage everyone to consider leaving a tip for the housekeeper? Whether you do a dollar per day or just a token gesture of a thank you note, please show your appreciation. (This is especially a personal point for me as I have many family members performing similar services and I know how little they get paid.)

Brigitte Taylor from Barbados,
I am a German women who decided 28 years ago to get away from the bad weather and live in a Country which has lots of sunshine :-)

I was working for myself in Germany and when I came to Barbados I was trying different businesses before I found the work I love most.

To make people happy is my goal for life which is more important to me than to make a lot of money. Since I started to operate a vacation rental business about 25 years ago my life has changed and I am always happy when my guests have a good time and I can help to make it happen.
I get many very nice reviews in the Internet which shows me that people do appreciate my way of given them a good time and all information needed for a great vacation in this beautiful Island of Barbados.

I have a lot of repeat guests for my business as guests get value for the money spend in Barbados and on my accommodations.

I would be happy if you come and visit this small paradise Island Barbados.
Have a great life
Brigitte
