'Shutters' is a traditionally designed house on the famous west coast of Barbados. Within 5 minutes walk of the quiet but stunning Reeds Bay (see photo), 'Shutters' has the added advantage of a private pool (18' x 12') and garden. All the rooms are spacious and airy, but the house is fully air-conditioned for those who prefer the cold!
'Shutters' is in the village of Lower Carlton which is between Holetown to the south, and Speightstown to the north. Consequently it is within easy reach of all the fabulous bars and restaurants the west (Platinum) coast has to offer. Lower Carlton itself is a very quiet, sleepy village but the Carlton Variety Store (3-4 mins walk from Shutters) offers amazing rum punch, beers and general chatting most nights with fantastic grilled fish on Thurs, Friday and Saturdays, and the famous John Moore Bar is a 8 or 10 mins walk from the house, and there are several nice little eateries within 10 minutes walk. Lower Carlton has a fishmarket which sells the most delicious (and cheap) fish, and a fruit and veg stall which sells local produce. There is also a small mini-mart. For additional shopping Bridgetown, Holetown and Speightstown are a quick bus ride away.
There are a wide variety of activities available up and down the west coast, and the wild surfing water of the east coast is about 40 minutes drive away. The house is 40 minutes from the airport.
'Shutters' is tastefully furnished and comfortable. The housekeeper will clean the house and change the bed linen and towels twice a week. The garden and pool are tended to weekly.
