A great cottage rental

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was very cozy nestled in a quiet area. Theres a convenience store and bar on the same street and the people really very welcoming. Not to mention Thunder Bay beach is a 5 minute walk from the cottage. My fiance and I will be using this rental again.

Not a pleasant stay.

  • 1 of 5

The cottage was cute at first. Definitely need use of a car if staying in st. James. Not near anything except the beach. Beaches are absolutely stunning. We had 7 cockroaches in the house. We couldn't keep the windows open or more would fly in. The bathroom light was not working. All the towels had long black hairs attached to them. The shower drain was plugged with thick black hairs we had to pull out so the water would drain. We asked the owner to spray and no one came around to do it. On the last day she messaged us saying we would not let the house cleaner in to spray. We were not around during the days and did not want to waste our vacation waiting for a cleaner to come along. I would have figured the House cleaners and managers should have spare keys to get into the house while the visitors are away. The doors didn't lock properly from the outside, so we never felt secure leaving our belonging in the house. There is no security/safety box for passports etc. I would not recommend staying here and I would never come back to this place.

Owner's Response: This is what you get if you dare to disagree with a guest. Read my other reviews. All windows have misquito screens and burglar bars. The guests get the manager's phone number before they arrive in Barbados. Emergency number is on the white board in the kitchen. All I asked the guests to do was to make an appointment, they never called. The manager was at the house seven times, but they would not let him in. We do not enter the house while it is rented out, it's our privacy policy. This is not a hotel room, where the maid has access to all rooms. There a several local bars in the village. The closest convenient store is only 50 metres from the house. Two local restaurants are in walking distance, but if you do not want to interact with local people my place is not the right one for you.

First time in Barbados

  • 4 of 5

Overall, we had an enjoyable stay. The water was a beautiful turquoise color and it was crystal clear. There were many places to snorkel and see the marine life right where we were staying. The beaches were very quiet. Some days, we had the entire beach to ourselves. The locals were all very friendly and always greeted us. They sold fruits and souvenirs along the beaches. There were also many water activities that were offered such as a trip to see the turtles, jet skiing, water skiing, the banana, etc. We made fresh lemonade to take to the beach with us from the lemon trees growing around the house. The food in the restaurants was overpriced due to the fact that it was imported. There was AC in the house which provided relief on hot days but it was only in one room. The kitchen provided all the necessary utensils that we needed and there were also locals that were always ready to help. Mostly, we stayed on the west coast but took a trip to the North to see the Animal Flower Cave and the cliffs. We also took a trip to the south to surf. There were always buses and taxis that we could catch that would take us around the island. The weather was perfect. Although we went during the rainy season, the rain never ruined our plans. It rained mostly during the nights and never rained for more than five minutes straight during the day when we were at the beach. The partly cloudy weather also protected us from the sun so that we ended up getting tan instead of sunburns. We would definitely come back to Barbados for a longer stay. It was so beautiful and it seemed like a dream.

Clean, Cute and Perfect Location!

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed here and LOVED it! The house was perfect for us, it was small (could have comfortably had 2 more staying in the house) and clean and had everything we needed in the kitchen. We rented a car hoping to go explore the whole island and once we got there we ended up loving the beach right by the house in walking distance to it. It had awesome snorkeling and such clear beautiful water. The beach isn't very busy either which is awesome! The neighbours were very nice and friendly, felt very welcomed and safe. Thanks for the stay!

Ein toller Urlaub in einem schönen Haus

  • 4 of 5

Ende Juli – Anfang August waren wir im Cottage „Azalea“und können nur positives berichten. Ausgesucht haben wir uns das Haus, weil es das typische Wohnen auf der Insel ausdrückt und wir „mitten drin“ sein wollten.

Und hier wurden wir nicht enttäuscht.

Die Nachbarn, bzw. die Anwohner der Straße waren alle sehr freundlich und man hatte auch immer das Gefühl hier sicher und willkommen zu sein.

Das Preis Leistungsverhältnis ist völlig in Ordnung, und so wird es einem auf Barbados ermöglicht auch etwas günstiger Urlaub zu machen.

Wir haben uns alle im Haus sehr wohl gefühlt. Es ist zweckmäßig ausgestattet und sehr liebevoll eingerichtet.

Im großen Garten wachsen Bananenstauden, Zitronenbäume und viele schöne Blumen, was unser Kind ganz toll fand.

Auch, wie in der Beschreibung angegeben, ist der Weg zum Strand nicht weit. Hier kann man noch fix zum Sonnenuntergang an den Strand gehen und das Schauspiel genießen. Und „unser“ Hausstrand ist wirklich sehr schön. Wenn man Glück hat, kann man beim Schnorcheln sogar Schildkröten sehen.

Den Abend haben wir immer auf der Terrasse ausklingen lassen. Diese liegt zwar zur Strasse hin, was aber für uns umso interessanter war, da sich hier das Leben abspielt. (Nein, laut war es nicht. Eher eine sehr ruhige Wohnlage.)

Die Vermieterin, Frau Theurer, gibt sich viel Mühe und ist mit Herz und Seele dabei.

Während unseres Aufenthaltes auf der Insel konnten wir sie persönlich kennenlernen. Mit ihrer herzlichen Art stand sie uns hilfreich zur Seite.

Wir sagen Danke, für den wundervollen Urlaub, mit den vielen kleinen Erlebnissen und den sehr netten Menschen um uns herum. Wir haben uns rund um wohl gefühlt und können das Haus nur weiter empfehlen.

Es grüßt Familie B.
