The day of our flight down to Barbados, I woke up in Boston to ice and single digit temperatures. That afternoon I was on a beach covered with palm trees looking at crystal clear water where it was a perfect sunny 80 degrees. Talk about tropical paradise!
I stayed at the Little Bay House for a week with my wife and a group of couples. The house was perfect and made for such a memorable experience. Downstairs has an open design -- great for socializing and relaxing. The pool area will make you forget about all your worries and the kitchen is a perfect spot to grab a drink (try the local beer, Banks) and watch the chef of your group prepare island fare, if you’re into that kind of thing. The audio system was a nice touch that we all appreciated and the house got a terrific sea-breeze which was a constant reminder that you’re relaxing in the Caribbean.
The bedrooms are located upstairs and they each have privacy and their own A/C units, which I think we only used once. At least two of the rooms had their own balconies too. Everything is roomy and spacious – I even thought the design of the ceiling was pretty cool.
I’d say the house would be perfect for a group of friends or families with kids who are looking for a relaxing and adventurous vacation. The house in an area that’s off the beaten path so you won’t be hanging out with tourists. There is a dramatic ocean view steps outside the house and a secluded beach within a short walk. Crane and Bottom Bay Beaches have to be two of the best beaches in the world. And the entire island is very easy to get around as soon as you get used to the fact their driving on the wrong side of the road.
Overall, our time in Barbados at the Little Bay House was one of the best vacations we’ve ever had -- I’d highly recommend it and I can’t wait to go back!
