Shelley is seriously of the most amazing hosts I've ever had. That is why I returned to her and her family for my trip this year to Barbados for CropOver. She is always interested in what you are doing and has good suggestions for plans if you don't know what to do. She is like a other mother to me.
Her home is so beautiful and accommodating. My bedroom was just as wonderful as last year. Very clean and open, mosquito net provided, and they offer towels in case you didn't bring any.
I recommend Shelley to anyone passing through BIM.
My girlfriend and I stayed with Rachel and Manny for 8 nights and it couldn't have been any better! They were such amazing and friendly hosts and made us feel very much at home. They helped us with any questions we had and gave us very good advice on what to do while on the island. The house is very clean and in a terrific location, within 5 minutes of a delicious bakery, the extremely beautiful Carlisle Bay, a bus stop and a very popular nightclub. This location is a MUST! We will definitely be returning!
I am so pleased that I chose this place to stay during my quick vacation to Barbados. Manny was a SUPERB host and did not hesitate to make my stay an enjoyable one. He was extremely helpful in getting my acclimated to neighborhood. The location could not have been any better, as it is a few minutes walk from the beach, bus, and town. Do not hesitate to book at this listing, you definitely will not regret it!
Fantastic experience! The hosts are really kind, informative and open and welcome you into their lively Barbadian home (they have a home business with employees). This can be busy but also means that within the lovely, characterful house you have access to an industrial kitchen with plenty of space for self catering. We (my wife and I) were there for a visa interview at the U.S Embassy and the medical check is just a 5 minute walk away. The hosts even drove us to the U.S Embassy itself (as well as the supermarket)! They really go the extra mile and helped us with laundry and even made us pancakes one morning (which I'm not sure is part of their regular service but gives you an idea of what they are like). The neighbourhood is really quaint and funky and if you are friendly and say good morning to everyone you'll see it's a safe place. The only drawback I can thing of is that the house is wooden and therefore not very soundproof. But it's part and parcel of getting to stay in such a grand, colonial style house. We'd highly recommend them (they feel like friends now) and be sure to take a look at their bookshelf and read come Caribbean authors.
Sorry directions weren't clear to you. There is only one official price, $42 BBD (Barbados dollars) which is $21 USD (USA dollars). Taxi drivers sometimes make their own modifications on price and service so it is best to set price before leaving and have driver call me if problems develop or directions are needed. Guests should pay no more than $50 BBD tip included, if you are negotiating with the driver because the dispatcher is not present.
Drivers should be able to bring you in the taxi directly to my gate as big trucks are able to navigate the smaller private road to my house.
Manny was a great host, he couldn't do enough to help us out. My room was just as described. Their home is what you would expect a true Bajan home to be, clean, comfortable with all the amenities you could need. Good location, 5 minutes to the beach, town and taxis are within a walkable distance. Apparently, this is the noisy room so pick one of the other rooms if you're a light sleeper.
Nous avons ete tres bien accueilli. Le proprietaire etait tres disponible pour nous. La chambre correspondait parfaitement a l annonce. La maison est tres bien equipe
The hosts were very welcoming and helpful. The place was easy to use, clean, comfortable, close to the beach and the shuttles on Bay. It was an excellent choice and I hope to be back there soon.
