Very cute little cottage. Mary was very accommodating. Great location if you want to be away from the touristy spots (very short and convenient commute though). It is less than 10 minutes of walking to the Oistins Fish Fry and a supermarket. Great time on the island.
Mary was absolutely fantastic! the best air BNB host we have ever had! If you are going to Barbados....stay in the cottage! So beautiful and spacious. It's truly like being in paradise.
Mary and NIck made our stay superb. . The cosy cottage was absolutey lovely, with the fridge was stocked on arrival of all the essentials. Nothing was too much trouble, Mary even offered to drop us at a beautiful restaurant 20 minutes drive away. They both were very helpful giving us advice on all popular attractions. Mary even provided the cottage with a little booklet offering advice form car rental companies to surfing schools, everything was at our fingertips.
Wir verbrachten 6 wunderbare Tage in diesem kleinen Cottage. Es steht im Garten der Besitzer, in dem auch frische Früchte wie Bananen, Breadfruit, Guave, Aloe Vera und Limetten wachsen. Alles ist aus Holz und sehr liebevoll dekoriert. In der Küchenzeile fehlt es an nichts und alles ist super sauber. Im privaten Innenhof kann man gemütlich auf der Terrasse frühstücken, relaxen in der Hängematte, grillen und unter freiem Himmel duschen. Die Tür kann man nicht richtig abschließen, aber dafür gibt es ja Wachhund (Kuschelmonster) Sid. Da wir am ersten Tag recht spät ankamen, hat uns Mary sogar ein landestypisches Abendessen zubereitet und im Kühlschrank war schon eine Erstausstattung fürs Frühstück. Sie gibt auch gerne Tipps fürs Dinner und Sportaktivitäten oder man schaut einfach ins Gästebuch und holt sich Infos von vorherigen Urlaubern. Zum Geburtstag hatte ich sogar einen Blumenstraußvor der Tür stehen! Man hat einfach das Gefühl wilkommen zu sein und Mary tut alles damit man wiederkommen möchte:-) Zur Lage lässt sich nur sagen: ideal! Denn Bank, Café, Supermarkt, Tankstelle und Oistins Fish Fry sind nur etwa 3 Gehminuten entfernt. Zum Strand nur ein paar Schritte über die Straße.
Mückenspray einpacken, die Biester lieben neue Touristen!
Wir bedanken uns bei Mary, Nicolas, Aida und Sid für die herzliche Gastfreundschaft und können diese Unterkunft uneingeschränkt Jedem weiterempfehlen.
I don't know what I can say that hasn't been said before. Mary's cottage is simply perfect. The personal touches made my mom and I feel at home from the minute we walked in. Open and airy and relaxing. Perfect location to Enterprise Beach where you can sunbathe with the locals as well as walking distance to Oistins Fish Fry. A must in a Friday night. We hope if we ever make it back to Barbados that the cottage is available. Simply perfect!
Mary and Nicholas were super host's and made us feel very welcome. The cottage was super cute and had everything we needed. Welch's beach is right across the street. We really explored the Island during our two week stay. The bus system they have is terrific and never needed a car.( Nicholas picked us up at the airport and dropped us off too!) Taking the bus around is a great way to see how everyday life is lived. Make sure you bring mosquito repellent as they do attack non stop! Oistens was super fun, Cool Runnings Catamaran, St Nicholas Abbey and my favorite, Paynes Bay!! Thank you both for having us!!!
No buts from us. From Mary's cheery greeting on our arrival to her organising the packaging of a painting for transit on the final day, we knew we were in a special place. The cottage is so welcoming and lacks for nothing. The kitchen is fully appointed and it was wonderful to wash sheets at 8am and have them dried on the line and back on the bed by noon. The welcome pack and the visitors' book were a boon (as were the anti-mosquito net and sprays!). The private rear garden/yard with hammock and exterior shower was an oasis, perfect after returning from a swim at the nearby beach (about 100m from door to waves). Access to Bridgetown and other locations is excellent with a constant supply of the bonkers mini-buses on the road in front. And Mary and Nicholas were always happy to help with queries about the island and suggestions for visits. We'd love to return to Barbados. We hope the cottage will be available when we do.
About the Host, Mary
