PLEASE NOTE: Access between the first floor and ground floor is by exterior steps. This may not suit some families with younger children. Please make sure you are happy with this arrangement before booking

In addition, as you can see from the photos the upper floor of Calabash is of hardwood construction. This beautiful wood has been left unpainted. You may find the living area and upstairs bedroom darker than you are used to. Please make sure you are happy with this before booking

Other things to note
PLEASE BE SURE YOU HAVE READ AND UNDERSTOOD THE BARBADOS GOVERNMENT'S TRAVEL PROTOCOLS BEFORE BOOKING THIS PROPERTY

Calabash has push-out shutters and is cooled by ceiling fans and through breezes. Air Conditioning in bedrooms only. Please be aware that the windows with push-out shutters have security grilles but no glass. Access between upper floor and ground floor is by external steps. Please be sure this suits your group, particularly if you have young children. Part hardwood construction means the upper level might be darker inside than you are used to. If you prefer a modern white space, Calabash is probably not the right fit for you

Mullins is a popular beach attracting visitors from across the island. Look online for opening times at Sea Shed and the Royal Westmoreland beach club. Beautiful Gibbs beach is a short walk from Mullins beach. Gibbs is quieter and is one of the most beautiful beaches on the island

SHARED ECONOMY LEVY. Calabash is registered with the Barbados tourist authority for the collection of a compulsory 10% Shared Economy Tax. This is paid to the Barbados Revenue Authority to help support and develop tourism on this beautiful island. Please ask if you would like to know more about the levy
