Forget the South or West coast! Too crowded, too hot, eroding beaches and way too expensive tourist trap. This spacious and clean house is located on the south east part of the island known for its cooling, Atlantic breeze. It's walking distance to the 4 most beautiful, uncrowded beaches. With its rugged, beautiful scenery the quiet and friendly Belair neighborhood is a welcome change from the hustle and bustle of the south and west coasts.
The apartment is on the ground floor of the brand new house. It has a private entrance from the garden, includes a living room, fully equipped kitchen and full bathroom as well as a luxurious outdoor shower with rain shower head.
LOCATION: The home is located in a quiet residential neighborhood and is a 5 minute walk to the nearest beach. However the best beaches are 15-20 minutes away or 5-10 minutes by car.
- Bottom Bay Beach (our favorite!) - Crane Beach (very popular 5 star hotel, with great views) - Ginger Bay Beach - Sam Lords Castle Beach - Plus a few more secret beaches, which we're happy to share with you!
15 minute drive to the airport 20 minutes to Oistins Fish Market or the night life area: St. Lawrence Gap
ACT LIKE A LOCAL: We have been coming to Barbados to many years now and are familiar with the best beaches and sight seeing. We have a map upon request, which highlights the best places to see. There is a small "Belair Variety Store" that has the basic groceries. Large and very well equipped Emerald City Supermarket is at Six Roads, 10 min away.
ADDITIONAL AMENITIES: Access to a wash machine. 2 boogie boards, 2 bikes, 2 yoga matts, cell phone with a local SIM card, beach chairs, portable sun tent, safety deposit box, free internet, outdoor brick grill, outdoor hot & cold totally private shower.
Interaction with Guests
If I am not on the island my house manager is only a phone call away. She will give you the keys and show you the house. She lives in the neighborhood.
The location is unique because it is away from the touristy areas of Barbados. Instead you'll find stunning beaches that have very few visitors but plenty of fresh coconuts to eat and drink. :)
The best way to move around is to rent a car. However, if you do not dare to drive on the left, there is a bus stop only 2 min away. Bikes are good only to reach the nearby beaches.
Please dispose of garbage in securely closed plastic bags, in the blue bin on the outside of the fence.
For your security and to avoid water damage indoors, window shutters and doors must be securely closed before leaving the property. Even on clear days, heavy downpours of rain accompanied by gusty winds can suddenly occur.
Water and electricity are expensive resources on our little island. Be sure to turn off all lights, fans and faucets when not in use.
Our stay at Jana's could not have been better! We arrived in the evening after a 9 hour flight and received a very warm welcome from Jana, complete with a couple of cold beers! What a host! She was super helpful throughout the whole duration, always making sure we had everything we needed, going out of her way to make our stay hassle free.
Teta House is gorgeous and wonderfully located in a quiet neighbourhood on the East coast. It was clean and comfortable and the breeze through the house kept us cool during the nights with no need for AC.
The kitchen has everything you need and more and the outdoor seating area is perfect for breakfasts and dinners!
The cell phone provided was also a great touch as we were able to keep in touch with Jana in case of any questions. The bikes that she offers were brand new and super useful for getting around the beaches near by! Unfortunately we didn't get round to using the snorkling gear but no doubt it's just as great!
The best part of our stay was Jana herself. From the moment we arrived we felt like we were staying with a good friend. As frequent users of AirBnB, this is by far the best experience we've had. We couldn't have felt more at home, thank you Jana!!
Would totally recommend to anyone visiting the island!
A lovely apartment in a nice neighbourhood. The Atlantic ocean provided a natural breeze, so there was no need for air conditioning. Jana was a great host and gave us loads of really useful hints and tips, which were much appreciated. We are also really grateful to Jana for staying up until past midnight, after our flight was delayed by 10 hours!
Jana's place is super lovely. Tugged in on a more laid back part of the island, ideal location for star gazing and wave listening! We'd like to come back.
Janas Appartement ist eine modern ausgestattete, gemütliche und geräumige Unterkunft. Die Wohnung ist perfekt eingerichtet, alles funktioniert gut und die Messer schneiden perfekt - so macht das selber Kochen Spaß. Die Außenterrasse ist großzügig mit Esstisch und Stühlen und einer weiteren Sitzgruppe ausgestattet. Von hier aus kann man das Meer in der Ferne sehen und nachts ist es ruhig , man hört nur das Rauschen des Meeres. Jana ist eine liebenswürdige, lebensfrohe und hilfsbereite Gastgeberin. Ihrer Empfehlung folgend haben wir sie auf dem Oistins Fish Fry getroffen und dort mit ihr und ihren Bekannten einen schönen Abend mit bestem Fisch genossen.
Einige schöne Strände sind fußläufig erreichbar und die Bushaltestelle ist nicht weit, so dass man hier seinen Urlaub auch ohne Mietwagen gestalten kann. Wir haben uns bei Jana sehr wohl gefühlt und können von daher das Appartement nur empfehlen.
We were on a later flight and arrived late, but Jana was still home and welcomed us and gave us a very good breakfast for the next morning. She checked on us always to see if we need any help and if we are ok. And she told us a lot about places she recommended to see. We visited some of them during our one week stay and found the most beautiful beaches that way. One we declared our favorite beach was just a very short drive from her place! We felt very comfortable, safe and relaxed. The house is lovely and everything for cooking and daily use is there. Thank you Jana for making our stay a pleasant one!
Jana's home was the perfect Barbados home base. Well situated between surfers point and Bathsheba, it was a slice of heaven. And Jana is a jem.
We had a wonderul time and a super experience at Jana's place. Indeed very close to a lot of beaches around (biking distance), the appartement is very well equiped with all the necessary things like washing machine, laundry and everything. There is a huge terrace where you can spend most of your evening for long night dinner.
