Rachel and Manuel are most amazing and inspiring people you can imagine, so friendly and helpful, they make you feel so welcome like you are the family
Our apartment was spacious, very clean and homely,( make sure you see the whole house, especially the paintings and sea shells collection).
We had a fabulous holiday, people are so kind and friendly and beaches are the best we've ever seen...can't wait to go back
Rachel and Manuel were amazing hosts! My girlfriend arrived before me and Rachel was kind enough to walk her town to the beach and show her the immediate area around the apartment. I arrived later that night, thanks to her detailed directions. I felt right at home. She prepared me a small bite to eat upon my arrival and was very friendly. The following morning she had some fresh fruit and coffee for us know that we both traveled far to get there.
The street (Dunlop lane) that takes you from the main road (Bay Street) to the apartment felt a bit spooky when I was arriving on foot at night, but you soon feel part of the neighborhood. Everyone is friendly and eager to say hello. Every morning we walked by an older lady on her front porch and she always wished us a great day on the beach with a smile.
Showers were hot, plenty of ventilation, serene balcony with monkeys in the trees and dogs running around below. Relaxing spot.
Rachel and her husband were super friendly, gave us a lot of useful tips and offered a warm dinner the first evening. The studio was very comfortable and nice. We were very happy with the location as well, 1 minute walk to the beach, close to town, easy to get around by bus, friendly locals in the neighbourhood. Would absolutely recommend! :)
Nagyon jól éreztük magunkat, a vendéglátóink nagyon kedvesek és segítőkészek voltak. Minden könnyen megközelíthető a szállásról, a tengerpart csak egy perc séta. Meleg szívvel ajánlom!
We had a great stay with Shelley & Manuel, they will do their best to make you as welcome and comfortable as possible. Their advices of locations to visit and places to eat where all great as well. We were also invited to dinner with them and had some great talks.
The apartment is simple but has everything you need, clean and in good shape. Enjoying breakfast from the balcony is amazing with great view and the occational monkey stopping by.
It's located about 15 - 20 min walk outside Bridgetown, but it's only 5 minutes down to a great beach. From the main road also 5 min away you can easily catch a bus or taxi, so getting around is not an issue. With all the friendly neighbours around you can always have an intersting conversation and you never feel unsafe.
We would definitely recommend staying here for a great experience on Barbados outside the resorts.
Замечательный отдых! Апартаменты находятся в 3-5 минутах ходьбы от самого красивого и большого пляжа острова - Carlisle bay, где розовый песок и чистое море. Комната точно как на фотографиях, личная веранда и небольшая кухня чтобы кушать на свежем отдыхе, слушать птиц и наблюдать за обезьянками) Но, самое главное, как нас встретили Рейчел и ее супруг Мануэль! Несмотря на то, что мы приехали в 4 утра, нас они встретили радушно и разместили, улетали рано утром, Рейчел была с нами с 5 утра. Благодаря Рейчел, мы узнали много интересного о стране, ее людях истории и традициях. Весь отдых было ощущение, что мы не снимаем у них жилье, а находимся в гостях! Это просто фантастика,какие гостеприимные люди! Спасибо огромное им за помощь во всех вопросах, заботе, внимании к каждому отдыхающему! Мы получили огромное удовольствие от отдыха и общения с замечательными людьми - Рейчел и Мануэлем. Будем счастливы вернуться вновь на Барбадос в гости к Рейчел и Мануэлю.
Rachel and her husband were excellent hosts and very welcoming! The provided very clear and helpful instructions before our arrival and gave us a bowl of wonderful homemade soup and snacks when we go in. They are a refreshing blend of being available, attentive, helpful, warm, and jovial without being overbearing. The house is tucked in a residential area only a short walk from an amazing beach and we found it easy to walk into Bridgetown as well as catch buses ($1 US) to other parts of the island. This place is a great value compared to other options in Barbados!
We had an amazing stay with Manuel and Rachel. They are both extraordinarily gifted in making you feel as though you're part of the family. At the same time, they are very helpful in showing you how to navigate the ins and outs of Barbados. There is no question that we'd stay here again.
