If you want to get away from it all and just relax, this is the place! All you hear is the crashing of waves below. The view is spectacular! The House has everything you could need.

You can enjoy the beach at the bottom of the cliff. It is very shallow and the waves are a blast to play in, or you can just put down a blanket and take in the sun. We only ever had to share the beach on one day!

Take advantage of Christine and David. They are a wealth of knowledge and are amazing hosts. If you need something, they will help you get it.

What an amazing place!

We will be back!

We had the most wonderful time at Farther Away. Christine and David have a fantastic property. They are great a host. The view is unbeatable over the ocean. We had our 2 children with us and it was so nice for them to to have there own room. The deck is huge and the kids loved the hammock. The breeze that runs through the house is wonderful. Christine and David keep the house sooo nice. David's Rum punch is top notch!!! Thanks for the recipe :). David was so nice to meet us at the airport and take is by the grocery store before we got to the house. I would suggest renting a car and exploring the island, so much to see in beautiful Barbados. Thanks again Christine and David. I would definitely book again!!!

Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed in Barbados countless times, but never on the East Coast. I was super excited to stay at Farther Away!

Everything from the booking to meeting Christine at the house for the keys was effortless. From the first correspondence to the check up phone call at the house, Christine just makes you feel at home.

The house has everything and anything, then some more! It's the little things that Christine and her husband keep at the house that you very much appreciate; all the different spices in the kitchen, the padding for the seats outside, the laundry facilities, I could go on and on.

The house is very private and secluded which was nice for my Husband and I. Waking up in the morning and enjoying your coffee and enjoying the view of the Caribbean Sea is breathtaking and I wish I was there right now.

I would not hesitate to book Farther Away again!

We we so glad we included Farther Away in our visit. We stayed on the west side also, it is fun in a different way but the unspoiled beauty here is wonderful. The view, the breeze, the decor, a visit from monkeys, and the attentiveness of the host are all amazing.

"Lord's wallet"

  • 5 of 5

We had really a great vacation in Farther Away. We felt like hiding from the world - nicely tucked away in a peaceful spot. If people are safe and comfortable we have a saying in our country: "They are in Lord's wallet". :-) That's what that house is - a truly lovely place, colorful and happy house with fantastic views - and wonderful owners. Christine and David took good care of us, helped with car rental and gave us great tips were to go. Children loved the sea turtles! Would highly recommend the house for everyone seeking for a peaceful spot away from it all. Rental car was necessary to get around.

Wonderful Vacation in an Amazing Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed at Farther Away together with another couple to celebrate my 30th birthday and christmas. We had an amazing time in this beautiful cottage and would recommend it to everyone who is traveling to Barbados looking for a place away from the tourist crowd.

The cottage is nicely placed on a cliff overlooking skeetes bay. The highlight for us was the huge outside deck where we spent almost all our time. The house is very well equipped, especially the kitchen (you would find anything you need and even more). Everything is perfectly clean and maintained - just a place you don't want to leave anymore. :)

Also the owners of the house were the perfect hosts and assisted us with everything before and during our travels: they did grocery shopping for us, so we would have something to eat when we arrived late from the airport, they would check in on us regularly to see if everything was okay, they would come by the house and refill the gas for the BBQ and they would pick us up and drop us in the airport....

There is really nothing that could have been better and we truly hope to be able to come back one day!

Owner's Response: Our guests come to our island to relax and have a hassle free holiday so it is our aim to see that they do! Maintaining our cottage is a big part of ensuring that they don't have any problems while on holiday. It is also our pleasure to have guests from different countries, stay at our cottage, thereby enjoying the local culture!
