I was met at the property and given a tour to all the amenities and how everything works. Basic necessities (including snacks) were provided which helps after a long flight and all you want to do is lie down.
This well presented spacious house is conveniently located on a well known stretch of road lending a spectacular coastline view whilst I walked to the vital local beach.
The house is on a easy to access gated close, set back from the road where I could not hear any traffic. The ability to have quiet mornings listening to nature and the relaxing evenings on the porch is what I needed and I got it on this holiday.
It had everything I needed to enjoy a comfortable holiday with my young adult family. I took full advantage of the optional maid to avoid any cleaning on holiday.
The spacious laundry area had a sturdy efficient washing machine, dryer, iron and deep sink. Its appearance encouraged my young adults to do their own washing.
The kitchen had a large fridge freezer to hold the constant supply of large cool bottles of water and ample cupboard space for the snacks/food items. The kitchen had numerous utensils and tools to aid whatever the family wanted to prepare to eat on the spacious breakfast bar or on the dinning table. The dishwasher was ideal. Not too much cooking required on this food tasting island!
The 3 air conditioned bedrooms supported hot afternoon snoozes and nights. The en suite bathrooms/toilets kept the family of 5 calm as many showers were required in hot Barbados.
The channels on the TV had variety to entertain the odd evenings spent at home.
I would recommend hiring a car, which you can park on the drive, to get around this beautiful island.
Overall I had a wonderful time in this house which gave us ample dedicated space to do so.
Booked Little Green Tara (LGT) as it is very close to the sea, but more importantly Surfer's Bay bar/restaurant!
I must admit our expectations were not that high, as the cost of LGT was on a par with a studio apartment that we had rented a few years ago.
Melissa responded promptly to my inquiry and maintained excellent communication throughout.
She arranged conveyance from the airport to LGT via the 'lovely' Lisa (who incidentally organised an excellent car hire deal through her brother).
LGT is a quirky, authentic Bajan cottage and we soon fell in love with it.
As I write this review I'm envisaging myself sat on the patio listening to the waves lapping against the shoreline.
Anyway back to the review - LGT is adequately furnished/equipped and with lots of covered outdoor space ideal for me as I prefer shade to sun. My wife is the opposite and spent long periods relaxing in the hammock in the sun.
The upstairs bedroom area is a light airy room with air conditioning (very quiet operation) and a ceiling fan. There is also a TV.
The bed is extremely comfortable and of a good size (Queen) and there are adequate pillows (6).
There is a chest of drawers, wardrobe space and under-bed storage.
The bathroom is separated by a louvred door and has sink, toilet and a large shower enclosure. The hot water is provided via solar power, so you soon learn when to shower and when not to shower!
Downstairs is primarily kitchen space. However there is a small work-station, and a folding table & chairs.
Outside is a wrap-around semi-covered patio area, which is essentially your living space. As already mentioned it has a hammock, Ottoman relaxer chair and a small portable drum BBQ.
Melissa contacted us upon our arrival at LGT to check that everything was alright and to inform us that she was only ever a phone call away. She even took the time to drive down to Silversands to introduce herself in person.
The close proximity to Surfer's Bay was never an issue regarding noise as it closes at 21.00.
In summary a thoroughly enjoyable 2 weeks spent in a lovely property in a beautiful location.
Would we return? Can't wait!
Thanks Melissa and see you soon!
