I had a wonderful time at the house. The welcome was very warm. Rachel and Manuel helped me with all my questions and they gave me good advice. The house is the perfect place to meet other friendly people, and it's located next to the most beautiful beach of Barbados. I stayed for 1 month and it felt like a second home, I felt as a part of the family. I could not have wished for a better place to stay.
Shelley and Manny are the most amazing airbnb hosts ever, so friendly, relaxed and super helpful and such interesting and kind people! You'll have a fantastic holiday at their beautiful, cosy, clean house. I was there for a month and enjoyed every minute. The neighbourhood's cool, a real Bajan one, 15 min walk from central Bridgetown, the best beach is 3 minutes away with all turquoise waters, turtles, bars etc. Shelley does great tours and delicious food too and helps with buying fruit etc and they both help you whenever you need anything. It was also really great too meet other guests and their friends in the house. I felt truly at home all month and really miss it all now. Also, it was all great for a single girl, no problems at all with the boys! Have fun, you're in for a real treat! A milion thanks again Shelley and Manny, you rock!! I can't wait to come back!!
This was my first airbnb stay - my only negative is that now my expectations may be too high for future airbnb stays! Shelley and Manuel go out of their way to accommodate their guests. I highly recommend staying here! Thanks for such a great time!
What can I say? I genuinely couldn't have asked for better hosts. From their attentive, caring nature to the quirky, comfortable and cosy house in a brilliant location, it was because of them that my stay was so productive and special. I thoroughly recommend them to you.
Shelly and her family do everything for you to spend a wonderful holiday, the place is super warm and you fell such like in your own home. It's nice to meet such beautiful people. highly recommended place next to the center (Brifhetown) and very nice beaches.
Rachel and her husband made our start on the island as good as ever possible. Besides all the tips and informations they gave as, they offered us a place like home. Both are very caring and helpful and gave us the feeling to be more than just guests in their house.
The neighborhood is friendly and we always felt save. Met lots of friendly and open minded people in the streets.
