We had a wonderful and relaxing time in a well equipped, simple and well cared for apartment on a beautiful sparsely populated beach. Ursula and Alfredo were helpful and responsive hosts. We did not have a car and had no trouble getting around the south east coast and Oistins. We've come to this part of Barbados for many years and Cotton Bay Beach has always been our favorite. We look forward to coming back!
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!
