Olivia's cottage certainly lived up to our (email hidden) is well equipped and a perfect location. Buses stop right outside the door for easy travel into Holetown or Speightstown. Supermarket and rum shack just across the road.Smitty very helpful with any requests we may have had. The washing and drying facilities were much appreciated together with a very generous welcome pack on our arrival. Plenty of beach towels,bath towels and linen. We really enjoyed meeting all the locals who were very welcoming and interesting to talk to. The meats cooked at lunchtime and evening at the roadside outside the supermarket on Thursday, Friday and Saturdays are also worth a mention. We have booked again for next year.
This is a delightful, simple little cottage with an unbeatable location! The balcony is such a relaxing place to sit and listen to the ocean, watch the boats go by and the palms waving in the breeze. The beach feels private as not many people wander there. Sometimes the locals sit there and they made us feel welcome and at home. Smitty was always at hand if we needed anything and we felt safe and comfortable. The house has everything we needed, and we appreciated the quality pots and pans and washer and dryer. The beds were comfortable and there were plenty of towels. Nice to have the AC but we didn’t need it often, preferring to have the balcony doors open. The welcome bottle of wine and breakfast supplies were much appreciated.
We rented a car for a couple of days which is a great way to see the island. There is a lack of road signs but if you get lost you can stop and ask for directions, people are friendly and helpful. Places we enjoyed visiting this time are the wild north end of the island and the animal flower cave and Earthworks pottery. A place I especially liked was Hunte’s Gardens. We realized too late that you could hire Smitty to take you on a tour of the island and am sure he knows all the best places to go.
I would recommend this cottage to anyone who loves to be by the sea. Thank you Olivia and family. We’ll be back!
Steps from the ocean and the children snorkeled and fed the turtles everyday. Smitty was there for any questions didn't have many. Thank u Olivia for breakfast essentials on our arrival.. One experience that we can laugh about was the island running out of eggs Christmas Eve. Be prepared that your water pressure will be limited to one source at a time (dishwasher, shower, clothes washer and outside faucet. Loved sitting outside on deck to enjoy coffee and the sunsets. Hope to return to Olivia's Cottage next year.
What a magnificent time we had! This house is in the best location in Barbados and fully equipped. It is a few minutes drive from the best restaurants and most elegant shops.
The best is the view from the balcony and being right on the beach. Literally you step out of the house, head down a few steps and you are at a pristine beach with crystal clear waters. It is totally private but at the same time you walk down the beach and you find lovely resorts, and restaurants. The perfect combination!
Olivia was so kind to call to see how we were and her brother who lives across the street was so helpful with recommendations and showing us around the house. I will return again for sure as it is the perfect beach house for me.
Wir hatten die Unterkunft für 17 Tage gebucht. Alles war so wie beschrieben. Für das erste Frühstück gab es einen Willkommensgruß und eine Flasche Wein. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Olivia hatte alles gut vorbereitet. Wir wurden herzlich empfangen und in der ganzen Zeit aufmerksam und überaus freundlich behandelt. Die Nachbarschaft war super nett,wir haben uns jederzeit sicher und gut aufgehoben gefühlt. Der Strand und die Umgebung sind ein Traum. Der Blick von der Terrasse und die Lage des Hauses sind wunderschön. Wir hatten alles, was wir brauchten. Die Ausstattung ist so wie beschrieben. Der Kühlschrank ist riesig und die Aircondition in den Schlafzimmern machte die warmen Nächte erträglich! Zu empfehlen ist die Garküche am Supermarkt, oder Ju Jus Beach Bar am Strand, direkt hinter dem Lone Star Hotel. Dort haben wir hervorragend gegessen. Im Supermarkt bekommt man eine kleine Auswahl an Waren des täglichen Bedarfs. Wer mehr braucht, oder gerne shoppen geht, sollte mit dem gelben Bus nach Holetown fahren. Überhaupt ist eine Fahrt mit dem Bus sehr aufregend und zu empfehlen. (Preis pro Fahrt 2 B-$) Besonders gut hat auch der Taxi Service vom und zum Flughafen funktioniert. Olivia kümmert sich um alle Belange sehr schnell und äußerst charmant. Auch der Rest der Familie und Freunde ist sehr hilfsbereit und aufmerksam. Wir haben uns in der ganzen Zeit richtig wohl gefühlt und erholt. Der Urlaub war ein Traum und wir kommen sicherlich wieder an diesen tollen Flecken Erde zurück. Ein Besuch des Huntes Garden sollte man unbedingt einplanen. Ansonsten bietet der Strand mit schnorcheln (Fische, Schildkröten, Riffe und Korallen ) alles was das Herz begehrt!
Wer gerne buntes Treiben mag sollte freitags nach Oistins zum Fischmarkt fahren. Ab 19 Uhr wird dort Musik und Party mit Essen und Trinken angeboten. Die raue Ostküste mit den hohen Wellen und dem Wind ist auch ein Besuch wert. Wir könnten noch seitenweise von schönen Dingen berichten, empfehlen aber einfach, fahrt selber hin und genießt! Danke für eine schöne Zeit an einem unglaublichen tollen Ort!
Where do I begin on this amazing place?! On our arrival day, Pam (housekeeper) was there to greet us and show us around the cottage. Pam was pleasant, kind, helpful and just an all around wonderful person. She answered all of our questions and showed us how to work certain appliances. She left her number for us to call in case we had any additional questions.
Olivia's cottage is in one word...perfect. The location is ideal - right on the water on a very secluded beach. The sand is so soft and the water so clear blue. The beach is wonderful to walk and there is a little cove off to the right of the cottage for easy access to the water. The reef is really neat and we snorkeled everyday right in front of the cottage. The amount of sea life is amazing! The cottage is exactly as described and depicted in the pictures. Sitting on the terrace, overlooking the beautiful water, was the highlight of our stay. There is ample amount of space. We didn't even use half of the cottage. The beds and pillows were very comfortable and the bathrooms were large. (Water pressure is low, but that is normal for island life). The AC units in the bedrooms were strong enough to cool the entire place if needed. The kitchen is updated, fully equiped and easy to use. The cottage is airy, clean and comfortable.
There is a public access to the beach next to the house that some folks use. This is how we met so many wonderful people. Everyone was very respectful, friendly and kind. Olivia tried to call several times to inquire about our stay, but unfortunately we did not get a chance to speak. Olivia's brother, Smitty, was very friendly and stopped by to check in with us, as well as Pam. Olivia's father, who lives next door, was friendly and helpful as well. On our first day, we had rented a car and drove past Olivia's cottage about 5 times in search of it haha. Olivia's father had spotted us, so on the 6th time around, he was there waving and flagging us down. :)
Since we rented a car, it was easy to get around the entire island. But a car is not necessary with the nearby and many bus stops. Holetown is a short walk south of the cottage filled with restaurants, shopping, large grocery store, gas station, etc. Some great things to try: massages at Schotherapy in Holetown, jet skiing with Derrick near the Lone Star, snorkeling aboard the Marvelous with Marvin in Holetown, Tapas restaurant in Bridgetown, The Tides restaurant and The Cliff restaurant were outstanding. The Mount Gay Rum distillery tour in Bridgetown was a lot of fun too.
All in all, our stay in Barbados was amazing. From Olivia's promptness in response to our inquires, to the perfect cottage, the beautiful beach, to the wonderful people we met. THANK YOU OLIVIA, OLIVIA'S FAMILY/FRIENDS and BARBADOS!
Sehr schöner, Urlaub, wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt und wurden gut (website hidden) mit guter Ausstattung und toller Lage. Alles perfekt, außer der Wasserpumpe, die nicht so gut funktionierte, aber im Urlaub auch nicht so schlimm.

I am from Barbados where I own the lovely Plumbago Cottage. However, I now live in Tortola where I met my fiance Stany in September 2012. Together, we manage Oliph Blossome Villas.
We are happy to offer you clean, comfortable, luxurious accommodation as you visit our beautiful Caribbean shores.
