My mom lives in Barbados, I live here in Toronto, she has a room available with a full ensuite in a 3 bedroom house. Suitable for singles, couples, family. Easily can send more pictures for you.
Everything went very well, we got picked up at the airport and were showed a very beautiful beach. The room was very nice and we felt very welcomed! Thank you!
Given the short time/dates that I spent in Barbados, I found Laura and Beverley to be quite accommodating (as I was only vacationing in Barbados for 3 nights - during Cropover).
The location of the home remains private - which made for a great 'escape'. A car is recommended however, given the fact that it not along any of the bus routes.
Despite the larger protective dogs next door (making me miss my own dog at home), Beverley was very welcoming and practically made it her duty to ensure that my stay was comfortable and enjoyable.
And it was!
I stayed with Bev for 3 days in June and found her place to be great. It is clean and spacious and Bev herself is a caring and kind host.
It really helps when you stay with a 'local' like Bev as she knows the city well and was happy to give me a fantastic tour of all the sites.
My trip was made even more enjoyable as Bev happily organised my short trip by inviting me along to her usual social activities which gave me a great opportunities to meet many of her friends, an ideal situation for a lone traveller.
Laura, her daughter, was great at answering my questions prior to booking and really made me feel at ease as I was pretty nervous about travelling alone to a new place.
Overall, Laura, Bev (and her two dogs - Champ and Lucy), are a great credit to the AirBnB site and welcomed me with open arms. I would happily return to Bevs lovely home and would recommend this place for people who want to get a genuine Bajan experience.
The room in this house was exactly what I was looking for, I had travelled alone to Barbados for the first time and Bev was a very welcoming host. The house is on a very quite street, this makes for a restful nights sleep, but it is also very close to the "action" (10-15 minute walk to Oistins, and close to a bus route). Since I was travelling by myself, Bev took me out and showed me the sights, we went up to Bathsheba, into town, and many other places in the 2 nights I stayed here. Bev knows this island, and she knows many many interesting people that live here.
The room itself is large, with 2 big closets and a vanity area, lots of windows for a nice breeze at night. The private washroom is also well equipped.
