The location of BBH is excellent for access to all parts of the island. Its secluded position on a steep hillside above tree level and surrounded by greenery, with wide views of the ocean and Castries to the North, is spectacular. The only slight disappointment for keen sea swimmers is that the surf at nearby La Toc beach, reached by an intriguing private path and steps, tends to be rough. However, several good swimming beaches are only a few minutes drive away and the lovely pool is a great substitute.
The spaciousness of the accommodation is a great bonus, and all three bedrooms had similar facilities and views. The huge balcony with a wide selection of comfortable seating made a most enjoyable meeting and eating area.
The fact that we were living in a family home gave added interest and the owner, Alice Bagshaw, who lives nearby, made us feel welcome and relaxed and was a mine of information about recent island history. One small downside about the facilities was the rather crowded space and dated equipment in the kitchen - a slight inconvenience for energetic self-caterers such as us!
The staff, Uriel, Pearl and Junior were attentive and helpful and looked after us well.
Our requirements for holiday accommodation are probably not typical of most visitors to the Caribbean, as we mostly enjoy exploring remote areas independently, but BBH would be an ideal place for both relaxing and chilling out and as a base for taking in any of the more active attractions of the island. Beach bums would do well to rent a vehicle.
Finally, thanks to Oasis Marigot for facilitating out booking so efficiently and to Alice and her staff for their hospitality and attention to out requirements and special requests.
