Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Wir haben bei Mary & Niklas zwei traumhafte Wochen verbracht!
    Das Cottage war super gemütlich und geschmackvoll war alles vorhanden! Von einer herrlichen Aussendusche im Garten, Hängematte zum entspannen nach dem Sonnenbad und einem Grill auf der Holzterrasse! Wer mag kann direkt über die Straße am Welches Beach die Sonne genießen oder am Fußläufig entfernten Miami Beach mit den Locals in die Wellen springen! Der Supermarkt fuer den täglichen Einkauf ist gleich um die Ecke und das Surfers Café ist perfekt fuer einen Sundowner oder ein leckeres Essen über dem Meer !
    Das Cosy Cottage ist perfekt fuer einen individuellen Urlaub! Mehr geht nicht!

  • Mary's cottage is a little paradise! It is beautifully decorated, naturally ventilated and all open to the nature of a lush garden with lime and papaya trees. The beach across the street has incredible turquoise water with sand so white that it almost hurt our eyes coming from the winter grey New York. Mary and her husband took care of us in a very friendly and easy way, with lots of local knowledge of the island and giving us a ride to the airport. We very very much enjoyed our stay in the cottage, the bbq in the the little back yard with the fresh fish from the local market and the morning swims in the oceans. We will come back!

  • Highly recommended!
    We stayed in the cottage for 5 nights and had a great time! It was our first experience with Airbnb – and it couldn’t have been better! Mary and Nicholas are great hosts and helped us with everything to have a great time on the island and it was like being part of the family and not a stranger who’s there for some days.
    As mentioned in the comments before the cottage is larger than expected from the pictures and well equipped. All relevant places are close by: a beautiful beach and placed to snorkel with turtles, a supermarket and ATM, Restaurants, the Oistins Fish Market and a bus stop right in front of the door! Mary and Nicholas are well connected on Barbados and on other Caribbean islands – which is a great chance to get some help and local knowledge!
    We had great time and we would like to thank Mary and Nicholas to feel like part of the family during our time on Barbados.
    We’ll keep in touch and would love to come back some day!

    Response from Mary:

    Simon, thanks for your kind words. We love sharing 'our' Barbados with friends and family - and that's how we view our guests - like family & friends! You're welcome back anytime and hope our paths will cross again some day.

  • Our holiday stay at the cosy cottage was something we were looking forward to and it lived up to and surpassed our expectations. Mary has a great and effortless style that is displayed throughout the cottage. Mary and her family are comfortable and relaxed hosts who pointed us in the direction of good places that only insiders would know. The location is simply perfect and we enjoyed the beach across the road, the close but not too close proximity to Oistins for fresh fish and all the shopping outlets.

    It was our first airbnb booking and it will be really hard to match this excellent and high standard. Thank you Mary and Nicholas for making us feel like family in your cosy cottage.

    Response from Mary:

    Thank you for your review. We too enjoyed hosting you all. Your stay was just too short and you need to return soon. Keep in touch.

  • Wir hatten eine wunderbare Zeit im Cottage. Es ist sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet, ist innen großzügiger, als auf den Fotos zu sehen und mit allem eingerichtet, was man so braucht. Jeden Tag versorgten uns Avocado- und Limonenbäume mit ihren Früchten.
    Nachts ist das Rauschen des Meeres zu hören. Leider ist es nur mit einem kleinen Ausschnitt zu sehen, aber direkt über die Straße erreichbar. Welches Beach ist ein herrlicher Strand. Fast menschenleer. Supermarkt und Fischmarkt 5 min. entfernt. Mit den ständig fahrenden Bussen kommt man überall hin. Man braucht ein Mosquitonetz für den ungestörten Schlaf. Wir hatten es und so eine großartige Zeit!

    Response from Mary:

    Thank you for your review - your feedback is much appreciated and important for us to continue to improve our guests experience. It was pleasure having you stay with us.
    Best wishes,

  • We fell in love with Mary's cottage just off of Welches Beach. The location was completely perfect for what we wanted. We generally enjoy our privacy and quiet beaches and that is just want we got here! We aren't really the couple that enjoys eating out for every meal so it was nice to have a full kitchen with everything we needed to eat in when we wanted to. A good grocery store is just a short walk away.
    Mary and her husband are fantastic hosts. They were very helpful with any questions we had and extremely friendly as well.
    We will definitely be back to stay in this cozy little cottage!

  • The property is even better than the listing. We really enjoyed the cottage, its amenities and its location for the 2 weeks we were there. It is close to everything and having Little Welches beach right in front was amazing (sunsets and morning swims!). What made our experience truly wonderful was our hosts. We will be returning and we do strongly recommend for anyone to stay here. Thank you very much!!

    Response from Mary:

    Pierre, you're welcome back anytime :-)

  • What a place. Literally steps from the beach, very close to Oistins (4 minute walk or so), close to a supermarket (3 mins walk).

    Mary is a wonderful host - we couldn't have asked for more discreetly given help, advice and conversation. The home is beautifully decorated and quite spacious.

    I would recommend this completely. Please don't hesitate to get in touch if you need a reference.

    Thank you for your kind remarks - I am pleased that you enjoyed your stay. I just wish I could have spent more time with you - so you'll have to come visit us again. My best wishes to you for the new year.

  • Il mio soggiorno presso il cottage di Mary è stato favoloso. Mary è stata accogliente e disponibile e i suoi consigli sono stati preziosi. Il cottage è bellissimo, spazioso, dotato di tutti i comfort e la spiaggia vicina è la più bella di tutta l isola. Spero di tornarci !! Non vedo l Ora!

    Response from Mary:

    Thank you for your feedback - Hope we'll meet again soon in Barbados. It was a pleasure having you stay with us.

  • Another experience on why i love Air Bnb so much.
    U just don´t check into a anonymous hotel und be a guest… u get ur own home in a different country!

    To the Crib:

    It´s a nice little House with ur own garden.
    The Garden features a hammock to relax, an outdoor shower and some nice plants.
    U also have a lot of fruit trees in the garden where u can take some banans, avocados or lime.
    The house is decorated very nice an there is enough space for 2.
    WI-FI is working great, kitchen is good equipped and u have everything u could wish for.

    The location of the house is also very good. U have the beach right across the street, the Supermarket is 2min walking and “Oistin Fish Markt” is also only 5 walking mintues away.

    I booked the house more because of the good feedback, like the others also said. It´s even better then what u see on the pic´s.

    The host Mary and her Husband was very friendly and helped us with everything. Thanks again and we´ll hoped to see u again.

I love to travel and would describe myself as a bit of a foodie too. When at home, I love to work in my garden and spend time with my husband and adorable little girl.
