Shelley and Manuel are wonderful hosts, with a beautiful, traditional Barbadian home. From the moment I arrived I felt like part of the family, as they provided dinner for me because I'd arrived late in the day and was tired - which was so gratefully received! The taxi driver had some issues finding the place, so would definitely recommend that you suggest he comes off Bay Street at Dunlow Lane and carries up to the private road - otherwise you might go round the houses!
The room itself was great value, and I was lucky enough to be the only guest downstairs for the majority of my stay so pretty much had run of the house. It's a charming, spacious and cool chattel house surrounded by lovely gardens (home to two sweet, well behaved dogs), and I particularly loved the reading room, spending hours in there during my stay. The bathroom is a good size and functional, shared with 2 other rooms.
The location is around a 10-15 minute maximum walk from central Bridgetown, and a 3 minute walk from Brownes Beach - a favourite with locals and cruise ships alike. As a lone female traveller I was initially cautious about the lane down to the beach as there are often people about and I did get attention from the local men, but most often this was just a hello and a brief chat. I never felt unsafe or uncomfortable. Shelley and Manuel are well regarded in the community so people would usually comment on this once they knew where you were staying. I was also lucky enough to see hummingbirds and monkeys in the garden.
Barbados itself is wonderful little island, with such a laid back vibe so it was really pleasant to stay somewhere where you got a true feel of the real Bajan lifestyle.
Shelley and Mani were great hosts. They tried to make us feel comfortable and Shelley even cooked a great meal for us. The house is beautiful although the small room is smaller than it looks in the photos.
Fantastic Experience! Me&my girlfriend stayed 14days in Rachel's house.The house was clean and (website hidden)'s situated in a private street with a big garden just 3 min.from the beach and 10 mins.walk from the (website hidden)'s well connected to all parts of Barbados.With Rachel & Manuel (people honest and kind)you'll definitely feel safe and...like in a real (website hidden)'s difficult to express our adventure in Barbados,in Their house...so if You want to go to this island, don't wait just contact with Rachel and Manuel !!!

Estuvimos con Rachel y Manuel 10 días, desde el primer momento nos sentimos como en casa, seguros y en familia, tienen una gran cocina, todo está limpio y su ubicación es muy buena, cerca de la playa y a 10 minutos andando de Bridgetown. A parte Rachel y Manuel son muy comunicativos y nos ayudaron a elegir sitios para visitar ya que ellos se conocen la isla a la perfección. Sin duda ha sido muy enriquecedor encontrarles y recomendamos esta casa si vienes a visitar Barbados.
The hosts go out of their way to make sure your stay is comfortable. They offer you opportunities to join them in their everyday errands allowing you to experience what it is like to live like a local Bajan. There is use of a commercial kitchen facilities or at a nominal cost, you can opt for a meal plan. As with all travels, be aware of your surroundings especially if you are coming and going during the night with low daylight. As a single female traveler, I felt very safe staying in their home and encourage you to stay with locals when in Barbados outside of a resort environment. Tropical landscaping, garden and two very sweet dogs included. When you stay with them, you are not just a guest, you are a member of the family.
Hab mich total wohlgefühlt bei meinen Gastgebern. Bin aufgenommen worden wie ein Familienmitglied und konnte mich gut unterhalten mit meinen Gasteltern und den Besuchern. Die beiden waren sehr zuvorkommend und haben mir immer geholfen und Tips gegeben für meinen Urlaub.
Das grosse Wohnzimmer(mit TV) und Terrasse sind zur freien Benutzung für die Gäste bestimmt. Super!
Der gemütliche Stadtstrand ist 5min. und Bridgetown 10min. entfernt.
Von der Hauptstadt aus kann man idealerweise mit dem Bus überall auf der Insel hinkommen.
Very warmly decorated house and helpful hosts. We came in the mango season and the monkeys were picking mangos from the garden!
