the definition of "WELCOME"
we were in Barbados for a surf trip with our kids.
Cheez Don Bread has been the best choice .
Very quiet but also very close to everything : Restaurants, beaches, surf spots, night life...
Alan and Sonia have been the greatest hosts we have ever had, here but not here!!!
when we needed advices they were present otherwise we didn't even know they were home!!!
The appartement is so well furnished we felt just like home!!
The beach near the house is one of the most beautiful on the island (and there are many beautiful beaches on this island!!!) with no one!!!! pure paradise!!!
we will comeback this year and we'll stay at Cheez Don bread!!!
Gael, What a nice review , Sonia & I are so happy you enjoyed your stay with your lovely wife and two daughters that shred!!
Look forward to welcoming you back soon.
Was truly a Pleasure meeting you.
Alan & Sonia.
Barbados made simple
We splited our trip in Barbados in 2 different locations. the first week in in the action of St Lawrence Gap and the second week in this superb, quite and secure appartment. Cheez Don Bread is well located as a point de départ to explore the Island by car and for the near by surf spots. We enjoyed our stay and recomand it to anyone that want to stay away from big resorts. It is good to know that all beaches in barbados are public an accessable to every one.
Thank you Eric , it was a pleasure meeting you and your family. Hope you and your son caught some fun waves that day I left for the Virginia Beach event. Thanks again for staying with us. Alan & Sonia
Lovely apartment, excellent hosts!
We really enjoyed our stay at Cheez Don Bread. The owners were very welcoming, provided great site-seeing advice, and even helped arrange a snorkeling/catamaran trip for us on short notice. The apartment was exceptionally clean, modern, and well-furnished with comfy beds. The kitchen had everything we needed, and there were beach towels and a cooler for us to use. The owners helped us to arrange a rental car, which was essential since the location is a bit off the beaten path.
Thank you Wendy & crew , you guys were equally as friendly and left the apartment in perfect condition.
Look forward to welcoming you all back soon!!

Little slice of paradise!
My kite crazy husband I stayed here for a week and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Alan and Sonia are very accommodating hosts, who provided great tips and guidance while also respecting our privacy. The apartment is clean and nicely decorated with thoughtful "extras" like beach towels, sunscreen/aloe vera, and a little cooler to take to the beach. The kitchen is well equipped and we had no problem cooking for ourselves; be sure to stop in at the Oistin's fish market for delicious and super fresh flying fish and mahi mahi (dolphin).
Long Beach is gorgeous - and surprisingly quiet and underdeveloped. For the kiting crowd, it is possible to launch directly on Long Beach in front of the apartment (50 m away through the dunes). Kiting is fantastic but not for beginners when wind and waves are onshore. A couple of kite schools/hangouts are located a short drive away at Silver Sands beach. Surfer's Bay Beach Bar and Restaurant is a must do - good food, drinks, and amazing atmosphere!
Cheez Don Bread is a great home base for a couple or young family; you'll need a car to fully appreciate all that the island has to offer. Just watch out for the potholes!
Thanks for a great stay, Alan. And best of luck to Josh on his pro surfing tour :)
Little piece of Heaven
We have been regular VRBO/Home Away users for several years. Cheez Don Bread has now become one of our favourites.
Right from the start, Alan couldn't have been more assisting and accomodating. Reading the reviews and doing some homework we realized that a car would be an asset to our visit. Alan had it set up and arranged ASAP. The location is quiet and peaceful so you can do nothing but relax and enjoy the property and beach, but it's location is convenient to be able to get out and explore the island and it's people. The island is beautiful and safe.
Alan, Sonia and the kids Jacob and Jodie couldn't have been better hosts ( Josh was out surfing the world). They are there, but they are not. If you need something, they are quick with suggestions and assistance otherwise you won't even know they are there.
The apartment is spacious, clean and has everything you need. As mentioned in other posts, having beach towels was a great asset. We were even able to do a small load of laundry which helped out. The kitchen has everything you could require. The BBQ is awesome and had "Bear" to assist.
There is quiet sitting area outside by Jacob's aviary and we enjoyed waking up to all his birds singing in the mornings.
Because of the constant breeze we did not experience any bugs, but it was nice to know there was bug spray and some sunscreen there is needed.
Our only regret was that we did not take Alan and Sonia up on the invitation to go to the polo matches. Won't happen again!!
Can't say enough about our fantastic visit and stay with the Burke family at Cheez Don Bread, or the island.
If you are going to Barbados there is only one place to stay and we found it.
Thank you Alan, Sonia and family.
Thank you so very much Glen & Lynn!!
We really enjoyed having you here and happy you enjoyed not only our property but the island and it's beautiful people as well!!
We look forward to welcoming you back sometime in the near future to enhance our friendship!!
Once again Thank you!!
A Very Merry Christmas at "Cheez Don Bread"
This apartment was a perfect starting point every morning of our Christmas holiday! The apartment has everything a family needs to cook in (BBQ grill, pots and pans of every size) or have a picnic on the beach. Knowing ahead of time that there would be beach towels on hand was huge when it came to packing as we usually bring them with. The sleeping arrangement worked well for our family of 4 and we had plenty of space to spread out when we needed to. Alan, Sonia and their kids were perfect hosts and very welcoming, always a friendly smile and a little chat. Our teenagers had a blast surfing in the morning with Alan and his son Jake. They all went above and beyond to make sure our stay was special. Sonia even set little Christmas gifts on our doorstep for the kids when they woke up Christmas morning.
The entire island was amazing and we could have stayed for weeks and kept exploring. The people are friendly, the sights are breathtaking and the food is amazing!
If you're visiting Barbados, "Cheez Don Bread" is THE place to stay.
Don't forget to ask Alan why they call it "Cheez Don Bread"
