Staying with Shelley and Manuel was everything you could hope for from an Airbnb experience - they are genuinely lovely people, and they were friendly, welcoming, and generous hosts. They clearly want to make sure that people enjoy Barbados, and go over and above to make this happen. The room is great - the bed is comfortable, it's nice and quiet, and the mosquito net is resilient! Shelley is a great cook, and it's definitely worth saying "Yes!" if she's cooking and offers you a piece of the action. It's a five minute walk to the beach, and the area's pleasantly down-to-earth and laid-back. I'd recommend it to anyone.
Rachel and Nathan are two terrific hosts for AirBnB. Both are warm and caring people. Nothing is too much trouble for them. During my recent one month stay, I had a dental emergency. Rachel put me in touch with her dentist and drove me to and from my appointment. Rachel is a great chef and I will miss her flying fish and fish cakes. Their lovely bright, airy home, is full of original art, and a 5 minute walk from beautiful Brown’s Beach. As Rachel and Nathan live in the same building, I felt very secure and cared for. The garden is lovely, with lots of trees and a nice patio area. The hosts are relaxed and there is a lovely casual atmosphere in the house. I would not hesitate to recommend Rachel and Nathan’s lovely traditional Barbadian home as a place to stay.
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.
