I had a wonderful time at the house. The welcome was very warm. Rachel and Manuel helped me with all my questions and they gave me good advice. The house is the perfect place to meet other friendly people, and it's located next to the most beautiful beach of Barbados. I stayed for 1 month and it felt like a second home, I felt as a part of the family. I could not have wished for a better place to stay.
Großartige Gastgeber, sehr schönes Haus, Lage ist sehr gut. In der Umgebung habe ich mich immer sehr sicher gefühlt. Perfekte AirBnB Erfahrung.
Staying with Shelley and Manuel was everything you could hope for from an Airbnb experience - they are genuinely lovely people, and they were friendly, welcoming, and generous hosts. They clearly want to make sure that people enjoy Barbados, and go over and above to make this happen. The room is great - the bed is comfortable, it's nice and quiet, and the mosquito net is resilient! Shelley is a great cook, and it's definitely worth saying "Yes!" if she's cooking and offers you a piece of the action. It's a five minute walk to the beach, and the area's pleasantly down-to-earth and laid-back. I'd recommend it to anyone.
A perfect place for someone who wants an authentic Bajan experience. The house is lovely, a short walk or bus away from the tourist areas but close to a beautiful beach for watching the sunset. Two bus stations are within a short walk providing quick access to anywhere on the island. Shelly and Manny were great hosts who clearly care about their guests and want to ensure they have a lovely experience in Barbados. The meal they provided was delicious and allowed sampling of traditional foods. I would recommend this location to someone who enjoys authentic travel experiences but if you're wanting a tourist area it may be worth it to try somewhere else. I enjoyed being within a local area but important to know to expect that!
Rachel and Nathan are two terrific hosts for AirBnB. Both are warm and caring people. Nothing is too much trouble for them. During my recent one month stay, I had a dental emergency. Rachel put me in touch with her dentist and drove me to and from my appointment. Rachel is a great chef and I will miss her flying fish and fish cakes. Their lovely bright, airy home, is full of original art, and a 5 minute walk from beautiful Brown’s Beach. As Rachel and Nathan live in the same building, I felt very secure and cared for. The garden is lovely, with lots of trees and a nice patio area. The hosts are relaxed and there is a lovely casual atmosphere in the house. I would not hesitate to recommend Rachel and Nathan’s lovely traditional Barbadian home as a place to stay.
Shellie's welcome was very friendly and made you fell at home in an instant. What you see what you get. This is not the Ritz but the authenticity of the Bajan life . The location is perfect a 5 minutes walk to the beach in a safe area. Shellie's cooking was amazing and her hosting genuine full of attention to insure an unforgettable vacation.

Shelley and Manny are the most amazing airbnb hosts ever, so friendly, relaxed and super helpful and such interesting and kind people! You'll have a fantastic holiday at their beautiful, cosy, clean house. I was there for a month and enjoyed every minute. The neighbourhood's cool, a real Bajan one, 15 min walk from central Bridgetown, the best beach is 3 minutes away with all turquoise waters, turtles, bars etc. Shelley does great tours and delicious food too and helps with buying fruit etc and they both help you whenever you need anything. It was also really great too meet other guests and their friends in the house. I felt truly at home all month and really miss it all now. Also, it was all great for a single girl, no problems at all with the boys! Have fun, you're in for a real treat! A milion thanks again Shelley and Manny, you rock!! I can't wait to come back!!
First Air BnB Stay
Shelley and Manuel are perfect hosts. They make you feel totally relaxed and at home. They are truly loving, caring and generous hosts available to help with concerns, cooking tips and directions. Their lovely Bajan home is located in a friendly neighbourhood and is a short walk to the beach and Bridgetown. We look forward to a return visit.
Lovely room - had my own private porch which was a nice escape to relax in.
Shelley and Manny were huge helps with anything I needed to know about Barbados. I came for a visa trip to the US embassy and got a lot more out of it than just my visa.
Perfect location to getting to town, US Embassy, the beach, restaurants and transportation to get you anywhere on the island.
We had a fabulous stay with these wonderful hosts in beautiful Barbados! The room was spacious and clean and we felt welcome and comfortable during our stay. A long white sandy georgous beach, Carlisle Bay, is just a short walk away. Great place to snorkel with fish, coral and turtles! Local buses and taxis are easily accessible. I highly recommend trying food cooked by the hosts and also try the great fish cutters from the white van near the beach; cheap and delicious! Barbados consists of friendly people, yummy food and breath taking beaches from coast to coast. Thanks for a relaxing vacation!
