The Cassia appartment was excellent and even better than on the photos. We had a very warm welcome. We already are missing Marley ;) The location is conveniently close to the beach and restaurants. We would come again!
We enjoyed our short stay here. The location was quite good for walking to beaches and dining. The church across the road rings loud bells early in the morning which isn't the best if you are a light sleeper. (This unit is quite close to the road)
The Cassia overall was a good deal. We stayed only two days, but would have felt comfortable staying much longer. The suite was for two of us, but 4 easygoing friends or a small family could have stayed comfortably as there is a full size futon sofa in the living area. Drawbacks about the place were: 1) Our poor cab driver drove around and around trying to find it. The simple address we were supplied with didn't help him much. If we had known the name of the church located across the street, I think our man could have found it easier. Also, if a local number had been listed on the text sent to us, our driver could have called. 2) another drawback is that the bathroom is not well separated from the bedroom. There is little privacy. This wasn't so much of an issue for us, but I could see how it might bother some, 3) the church bells start ringing at 6 am and don't stop until 10 or 11 pm. The positive points are: 1) it's a good location; 2) the overall vibe is friendly, safe and positive; we were met with smiles and a couple of Banks beers, and the friendly dog, Marley showed us the way to our room; 3) This is a very family friendly location, so if you're traveling with young children, they will feel very comfortable here. Overall, a good value. We would go back again. When you're in paradise, it's difficult not to relax and take small things in stride.
We stayed in the Cassia for two nights, and it was absolutely wonderful. Everything we needed was within walking distance including the beach, boardwalk, restaurants, stores, the Saturday farmers market, and bus stops (we even caught a bus to the airport for just a few dollars). We met a few of the other guests along our walks around the beautiful gardens and everyone was so genuine and pleasant. The room was clean, comfortable, safe, and had everything we needed. When not at the beach, we spent most of the time on the porch taking in the beautiful surroundings. Our hosts were so friendly and helpful. The locals were always so lovely and willing to help. We definitely recommend this place and want to come back!
This is an adorable little apartment tucked away on a charming property. We loved the hammock and beautiful foliage, and the sweet tiny puppy running around. Carl is a wonderful host. We would love to stay here again- I'm thinking of booking a vacation for my mom here later this year.
Jennifer and Carl were incredible hosts, friendly, welcoming and fun! We had a fantastic time staying in their apartment, which we felt very at home in. It's a stone's throw from a beautiful beach, and in a great location.
We're already plotting how we can return to Barbados and the wonderful Karibu Gardens!
My stay at Karibu Gardens was wonderful. Carl and Jennifer are the most gracious hosts. The Cassia was very cute and comfortable. The patio amazing. The grounds and gardens are beautiful. Karibu Gardens is well looked after and it's like a mini community where the people get to know each other...fun.
I had friends join me which were treated with the same welcoming and friendship I was shown. Carl took several hours on a Sunday to take my friend and I on a sightseeing trip of the island. Stopping so we could enjoy many points of interests. Can't get better than that.
I would definitely recommend Karibu Gardens to anyone who is looking for a great location, clean, well appointed and comfortable apts. with wonderful hosts.
I will definitely be back!!
Big thanks Jennifer and Carl
