Although Barbados is considered a safe island to visit, guests, particularly those with children will appreciate that 24 hr manned security offers a peace of mind when you are a long way from home.
There can be few finer places from which to explore Barbados. Shimmers is a pristine home which is lovingly maintained by ourselves - we have been coming to the island for many years and have lived here for some time with our children attending school in Bridgetown. This first hand local knowledge led us to choose Battaleys Mews as THE place to be based on the beautiful tropical island of Barbados.
We invite you to come visit and find out for yourselves!!!
