Cotton House 2 is a beach house right on Cotton Bay on the south coast of Barbados. Three air-conditioned bedrooms and three bathrooms with one fourth bedroom without a/c. The master bedroom has a king size bed, the other two with a/c can either be pushed together to form a king size bed for couples, or kept separate as two twins. The fourth bedroom has a double and single bed. The house can sleep up to 8 people comfortably.
Lots of space inside and out with a yard as well as an electric gate. In a family friendly neighborhood walking distance from Cafe Luna and Miami beach. Large deck perfect for lounging and entertaining. Surf break right out back perfect for learning. Five minute drive (10 min walk) away from Oistens where there are supermarkets, public transportation, and restaurants.
If I could give 10 stars I would. The location of this property was stunning. You can literally drop a rock of the balcony and you'd hit the ocean. Sea turtles can be easily spotted swimming all around. Miami Beach is a 5 min walk away. Food, bar...etc literally an additional 5 min away.
There were 7 of us total, 4 girls and 3 guys and everyone was very pleased with everything. The owner Sam And Stefanie were more than accommodating and made for an easy trip. They hooked us up with SUP Boards and a Longboard through the local shops that were waiting at the house upon arrival. They also made recommendations on where to go and also hooked us up with a local guy for transportation to wherever we needed to go. This is an unforgettable house and it was truly an unforgettable experience. I can't say enough about this place. For those of you that are planning to stay here...You are in for a treat! Can't wait to visit again! Hopefully sometime sooner than later.
Our group had a fantastic week at Cotton House 2! From the moment we first walked through the front door, we were in awe of the location and beauty surrounding the house. It sits in a residential neighborhood and overlooks Freights Bay, a beautiful surf break perfect for beginners and intermediates. During our stay, the swell was pumping and attracted surfers of all levels. Bonus: the bay is home to gentle sea turtles. When we weren't in the water, we relaxed and enjoyed the spectacular views from the large and comfortable decks. The photographer for the house listing did a good job, but the decks and colors of the sea are even more captivating in person. The house itself (we didn't spend much time indoors except to sleep) was great, clean, and contained everything we needed for music, internet access, and cooking. The kitchen even had a lime squeezer, which made preparing homemade rum punch even easier. There was also a charcoal grill for our group's pitmaster to prepare melt-in-your-mouth fish, fresh catch of the day that we picked up at the Oistins fish market from local fishers. We did not have a rental car but the small town of Oistins, a 10-minute walk from the house, had everything we needed: fish market, fruit and vegetable stalls, grocery store, convenience stores, restaurants and, most importantly, the fish fry. Also within a 5-minute walk from the house are Miami Beach, a lovely sandy beach with calm waters, and South Point, a nice surf break with fast waves good for intermediate surfers.
Finally, the owners, Sam and Stefanie, were very pleasant. From my initial inquiry, to time of booking, and in the months and weeks leading up to our trip, Stefanie was friendly and professional, and always prompt in answering my questions. Sam greeted us upon arrival and took time to show us around, and he met us before our departure to see us off. During the week, he also dropped by twice between surf sessions to make sure that we had everything we needed. Before and during our trip, they offered advice and recommendations, and made many phone calls to help us book a couple last-minute activities. Side note: we highly recommend Ted's Tours for an island tour. Ted was very gracious in accommodating our late request on his day off. He is laid-back, knowledgeable, super funny, and seems to know everyone on the island.
We have been home for a few days only but already miss Cotton House 2 and Barbados immensely. We will be back...although not soon enough!
This was our second, boys trip to this house which has become an annual event in Nov. Sam/Stephanie have made some improvements to the house and it is perfect for a surf trip. Excellent location and walking distance to Oistins. The deck is unbelievable and if you are a beginner/intermediate a perfect surf spot. Very close to access the other surf spots on the West Coast and Soup Bowls for the more advanced. We will be back this Nov. for the third annual!!
This house was perfect for our surf trip to Barbados. It is perfectly situated on the beach at Freights Bay, and is only a couple of minutes drive away from Oistins for anything you need. The home was especially comfortable for our group of 4 couples, and was totally secure during our stay. All the amenities were as described, and Sam the host was super accommodating.
On the beach in an iconic bay on the South Coast of Barbados, Cotton House Bay, this place is popular with learning and advanced surfers, kite-surfers, paddle boarders, wind-surfers,kayakers, sunbathers snorkelers and is awesome for swimming and turtle spotting. The occasional nap in a lilo is very common.
Nearby fishing village, Oistins, has a well stocked supermarket, a bank, a few restaurants, and many rum shops (the local pub). Oistins is also a hub of activity during the weekend with their 'Oistins Fish Fry' - A large array of booth styled seafood restaurants, open air dining and dancing, and very bad Karaoke.
A few 100 feet away is a sheik restaurant called Cafe Luna, perfect for special occasions, sushi Thursdays are especially popular. A modest golf coarse is a 5 minute drive away, and most of the island's activity are within 15 mins drive.
Take a day to go sailing on a catamaran. They take you to swim with sea turtles, we recommend Cool Runnings and El Tigre.
Another Great tour is the St. Nicholas Abbey rum refinery. One of the oldest in the world.
