Awesome place

  • 5 of 5

This was the first time we rented a property in Barbados and we found it exceeded our expectations. It was a wonderful cottage, more than adequate for two people and had every amenity you could wish for and more. It’s in a perfect location close to shops, transport and beaches. Loved how friendly all the neighbors were. Linda the owner couldn’t do enough for us and had lots of advice about places we didn’t previously know about so we made lots of new discoveries. We were also delighted to spend time socially with Linda and her friends which made us feel part of the community. If we should return again we would have no hesitation in staying at Little Palm Cottage. We would highly recommend it to anyone else.

Neat and cozy cottage

  • 5 of 5

Two weeks ago Linda’s welcomed us at her very neat and cozy cottage. When we arrived, there was some water, soda, beer, milk, bread and butter in a fridge, so we didn't have to rush out to the store to get the basic supplies, we headed to the beach instead. The location of the cottage is a 10 minutes walk to the nearest beach, 5 min drive to supermarket and Oistins Fish market where we used to stock up with flying fish and delicious local mangos. Linda always helped us with recommendations on different beaches, restaurants and main island attractions. It was nice to explore the island and at the end of the busy day come back to our vacation home. The cottage decorated and taken care of with love of its owner. Linda, I love the simplicity, tasteful décor and freshness of the place, you checked all of my “nice to have” boxes. The pictures of the cottage does not show beautiful greenery and flowers in front of it, it's lovely.

We brought home very warm memories from the Little Palm Cottage. If any of our friends will visit Barbados, we will definitely recommend Linda’s place.

Excellent place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Linda, the owner, was absolutely delightful and so helpful. The property was spotless and there was attention to detail in every area. We wanted for nothing. The interior was tastefully decorated and she was really concerned to keep the place well maintained. There were lovely little touches, such as food in the fridge upon arrival and the loan of sunbeds. She recommended various places for us to visit and places to eat and drink etc.

Amazing Holiday Let

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 4weeks in March 2017 and couldn't of picked a better property and location, The Cottage itself is located a short 5 minute walk from the nearest beach and local amenities 10 minute drive, the cottage itself was well stocked with dishes etc. Linda was very helpful. She

Gave us lots of useful information . She was there on hand if we wanted to ask for help, but also gave us our privacy. We would and will recommend this Cottage . We will defiantly be back again next year

Thank you Linda

Very Enjoyable Stay

  • 5 of 5

We returned earlier this week from a 10 night stay at this little cottage and had a lovely holiday.

The cottage is newly built and although not far at all from the main road which runs from Oistins to St Lawrence Gap, is remarkably quiet and in a pleasant residential area. Local people who walked past would wave or speak to us if we were sitting on the veranda and everyone was very friendly and welcoming.

The cottage was comfortable and roomier than we had imagined from the pictures. Everything was clean and modern. The kitchen was very well supplied with pots, pans and utensils and we enjoyed having the opportunity to cook in a few times Although airconditioning was available in the bedroom we didn't use it as the ceiling fan cooled us down enough.

We were fortunate to have hired a car for a week which gave us the flexibility to explore the island at our leisure (can definitely recommend a vist to Hunte's Gardens and the Foursquare distillery was also interesting) but using the buses for the first couple of days was also fun and it would be perfectly possible to have an enjoyable stay without the use of a car.

Lin, the owner of the property, could not have been more accommodating. This is a fairly new venture for her and she is constantly thinking about how she can make improvements. Currently, a little building is being built to the rear of the property (any work was done when we were out so as not to disturb us) which will house a washing machine for sole use of guests. Lin is also going to have a fence erected between her house and the cottage to give even more privacy. She has planted some beautiful bushes around the property too which will also enhance the surroundings.

For any independent traveller for whom a sea view is not a 'must', this cottage is a comfortable and affordable option. Thank you Lin!
