Guestbook comments from the owner

My wife and I were able to spend two wonderful weeks at Turtle Bottom

this past summer. The house was beautifully decorated in an upscale,

modern yet homey, comfortable style. The back of Turtle Bottom opens

up into a spacious patio and fenced in back yard that overlooks the

pristine Caribbean sea. The beach there is beautiful. We were able to

soak, fish, cast net, and even boogie board at times. We had taken our

3 month old son with us on the trip and found the accommodations to be

convenient, comfortable and safe.

It was fun to be able to go right down the street to the supermarket,

Oistins fish market or Cheffette.

Our two week stay fabulous and I would recommend it to anyone.

A true vacation in paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you David and Sam for making our first trip to Barbados a perfect one! We can't wait to visit again!! The photos online do not do this view justice - it's breathtaking and you just can't embrace it all until you've walked onto the patio for the first time. Everything was spotless, well maintained and very well stocked (including a starter supply of grocery items). David has EXCELLENT response time and very helpful with suggestions and recommendations for your stay. If our path ever takes us back to Barbados, we will definitely be back in touch!

Perfect vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you David and Sam for providing such a perfect vacation destination! We had the best week at Turtle Bottom and can't wait to go back again. The location was perfect for us--off the beaten path but close to anything that we wanted. The house was better than we could have imagined and we enjoyed everything about it. It was so nice to open all of the windows and doors and have the sea breeze and sound of the waves throughout the house. The views were spectacular. We saw lots of turtles and spent a lot of time watching the hummingbirds on the patio. We couldn't have asked for a better place for our vacation! Marianne

Beautiful Holiday.

  • 5 of 5

Turtle Bottom is absolutely wonderful! The house is perfectly located on the Maxwell coast just 10 minutes from Oistins. We had a wonderful family holiday here enjoying the beautiful days and gorgeous sunsets in the evenings. The house is outfitted with everything you could possibly need! It is a very special place.

Turtle Bottom is perfect in every way. The house is perfectly laid out and beautifully decorated, it is a fabulous home with everything you might need (and more) readily available. The pictures do not do it justice. The beach is literally on your doorstep and we even saw turtles while we were swimming. You are within walking distance of shops and restaurants but the bus stop in front of the house is great for trips into Bridgetown. The local buses are an experience not to be missed!

This was our first visit to Barbados and we are planning a return trip to Turtle Bottom next winter.

Perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

turtle bottom is the best holiday rental we have ever had in Barbados after 30 something visits in the last 20 years. the internal layout is superb, clean lines and open plan with every modern convenience you could wish for. the master bedroom is so spacious and the view is incredible. the ocean is just steps away and the beach is largely unoccupied so the desert island feeling really adds to total relaxation in paradise feeling.

we love this house and have already booked again, there is everything you need near by and lots of restaurants within a 10 minute car ride and also some local ones within walking distance.

cant thank david and sam enough, and look forward to our next visit

Best vacation rental ever!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Turtle Bottom in March 2014 (yes, it really did take that long for me to write my review). My husband and I stayed with our one year old and his 17 year old, and the house was perfect for us. We all had space to relax on our own, but the many common areas made it easy to spend family time together.

And the house...it exceeded every single expectation we had. The entire experience did. From the pick-up at the airport, to the stop on the way to the house for groceries, to the location, to the beach...and yes, back to the beautiful house. It was spotless, had everything we could have ever wanted, and had more room than we needed. The pictures don't do it justice.

We can't decide what was better - the big table out on the covered patio overlooking the ocean where we ate all our meals, the fact we simply had to take one step off the deck (through a gate we could lock) to feel the sand at our feet, of the location (we could walk to a big grocery store, the fish market and restaurants). I think it's safe to say it was as close to perfect as we could hope to find.

We have been talking about coming back since we left...and will definitely find a time to return.

Thank you David for all your help in planning a spectacular week.
