See...the vibrant colors and raw nature unleashed along the unspoiled eastern coastline; the spectacular impact of the Atlantic Ocean's vibrant surf on natural outcroppings...walk along the coastline for miles enjoying the Atlantic, on unrivaled hiking trails.
Hear...the blissful peace of a lazy tropical environment, punctuated by the relaxing sounds of pounding surf, swishing palm leaves and chattering monkeys.
Feel...the calming, tropical trade winds that caress this lushly landscaped property and sway through the breezy bungalow.
Smell...the salty ocean mingled with the citrus and floral scents from exotic tropical island flora.
Taste...the explosion of sweet juice from a freshly cut mango or orange, or the delightfully exotic milk from a coconut right on the property.
Enjoy...breathtaking views of cliffs and oceans, of casarinas, norfolk pine and palm trees all exquisitely co-existing among the luscious hibiscus and bourgonvelia.
Enjoy...the refreshing coolness of the pool, or the tranquil sway of the hammocks as your eyes delight in the multiple of gorgeous views from the large deck.
Experience the ultimate of the tropical Bajan experience, in a refreshing way, as an integral part of the island's authentic lifestyle.
Luxuriate in western amenities of a king size bed, air conditioning, a "Balinese" washroom, a gourmet equipped kitchen, an outdoor dining room that seats ten.

Guestbook comments from the owner
These are questions which we sent to our first long term renter, Simon and family from the U.K. who rented Rabbitt Hill for 3 weeks in July.
Were the people who run the house ( Agnes, Winston, Ronie) of help and
available when needed?
Yes but at the same time respecting privacy. It was good chatting with Winston each morning. Agnes was very helpful ( and her husband). Did not get to meet with Ronie but cleaning was excellent and all things we would need in interim were all readily available.
How did you find the East Coast of the island?
The best from a scenery perspective ( along with North). People a little more friendly and environment was still more green and natural. For us Brits July and August is our main vacation time. On the west and south coast it was less noticeable but it is apparent that things are quieter at this time on the East coast. A couple of occasions it was very difficult to eat out locally. I had phoned the Round House the day before to check opening for Sunday lunch but when we got there they were not open!. Atlantis, Edgewater and Dina’s at Bathsheba all recommended. Driving is different in Barbados at night and the drive back from Holetown etc took a little getting used to. I was glad we hired a jeep and feel I would recommend this in order to travel the Island. Must say however looked forward to coming back to east coast every night. Feel any issue or expectation was more with guide books and Barbados web sites etc about level of activity at this time of year
Would you consider going back? Would you recommend Rabbit Hill to others ?
Yes. May be as part of ‘Island hopping’ when kids have gone to college or with other friends. I say this as we were there for almost 3 weeks and covered 1200 km of the Islands 1450km roads rather than any issue with Barbados. In terms of recommending Rabbit Hill to others then absolutely. Happy to do this informally in our own social network or by providing any reference or testimonial for you as needed.
Once again thanks to you and your family for a great holiday !
