About O'Brian (OB)

My name is O'Brian and I am born and bred Bajan. Along with my Brother Sheldon we are the proud owners of this cottage. The cottage is named after our mother Barbara. However we have taken our initiative for 'Barbs Cottage' from our father Denzil who has been welcoming guest to this island whilst driving his taxi for the last 50 years.

During your stay either myself, Sheldon or my Dad Denzil is available to you to answer any questions show you the sites or just to say hi at any time.

O'Brian (OB) purchased this house in 2009

Three weeks on the West Coast

  • 5 of 5
My family (Mom, Dad and three boys 17, 15 and 12) spent three weeks in July at Barb's Cottage and loved every minute. The cottage is as described in the listing and in previous reviews and it has everything we needed; plenty of towels, comfortable beds, a great outdoor shower, a nice little outdoor patio, ceiling and standing floor fans, fast internet and a washing machine. From the initial contact the owner OB answered all our questions and was very helpful. We were met at the cottage by OB's father who later dropped of mangoes - the best we've ever had! We were at the beach across the road almost every day as it was the kids' favourite one. We had a car for the first week but it was not necessary unless you really wanted to explore the island on your own time schedule, the bus was great. For the last two weeks we walked to the local grocery store for supplies and treats, and took the bus (the yellow one as well as the blue one - both $2Barbados - they came by often) into Holetown. On Sunday mornings the ice cream truck came outside our door too. We had a great stay here and I would definitely recommend it. It's in a super location and it is easy to get around. We would stay here again for sure.

A Barbados Gem!

  • 5 of 5
In preparing for a month long vacation to my "Happy Place" (aka Barbados), I was looking for accomodations that were ideally located to allow me to submerse myself in the Bajan culture. Barb's did just that & more! The location of this Cottage couldn't be better; just a short bus-ride or walk to everything you could want (Supermarket-5min walk-, Waves Spa next door, Il Tempio Italian restaurant-5min walk, best pizza, great sunset location, and so much more!). The beach is located right accross the street and there is a sea view from the entrance. The bedrooms are spacious, and the remainder of the cottage is well laid out. I spent most time at the cottage out on the veranda which faced the sun during the day and provided an overhead roof in the sitting area. The owner, O'Brian is very attentive and wants to make sure you have everything you need to make your holiday enjoyable. He seeks out ideas and recommendations to improve the property which is very much appreciated. I was a little concerned about the lack of air conditioning, but I can honestly say that I was very comfortable. There are ceiling fans in every room, and floor fans in the bedrooms. This is a traditional chattel house which was built to handle the heat. Being across the street from the sea always provides a nice evening breeze to make your stay quite comfortable. I have already recomended this little oasis to others and will continue to do so. I can say without a shadow of a doubt that I will be back and will stay here many more times in the future. Thank you so much O'Brian, Michael, Jenny and all of the others that made this a holiday to remember! I cannot wait to see you all again very soon!

There are only wonderful things to say about this great little chattel home. The cottage, as I call it, is exactly as the pictures show. It is very clean, quaint and extremely comfortable. The cottage has all the amenities you will require. The location of the cottage is excellent – close to the beach (with its partial ocean view), grocery store and bus for an easy commute into either Holetown or Bridgetown or for travelling anywhere around this amazing island. There are a couple of restaurants close by, within walking distance (Wendys and IL Tempio). Both have great food and bajan hospitality. I would definitely recommend both to everyone. OB is a remarkable host and is only a phone call away, if needed. He arranged our airport transfers with Michael and Jenny, both who are very helpful and friendly as well. On our arrival Michael stopped by the grocery store so we could pick up some supplies before taking us onto the cottage. I truly had a hard time leaving after my 3 week stay and hope to be back soon. Thanks OB for sharing your place! Gloria.

Wonderful Bajan Cottage

  • 5 of 5
After arriving at the airport we were met by Michael our driver. A lovely gentleman who chatted with us on the drive from the airport to the cottage, telling us a little of the island and answering all of the questions that we asked.What can I say about this cottage you might ask? To start as you drive up to the cottage you notice how bright and pretty the cottage appears. On arrival we were met by a very polite young man named Maurice who explained that the owner had been laid up but was on his way. Maurice showed us around the cottage until the owner OB turned up ( another wonderful gentleman, who was only too willing to arrange anything we needed on our holiday ) We were delighted with the cottage, not only pretty on the outside and so homely on the inside,the cottage was immaculate, clean, plenty of room, light and airy and had everything you needed for a self catering holiday. The terrace as others have stated previously has a lovely breeze which we welcomed as the weather in Barbados is hot It was delightful sitting on the terrace every morning, eating breakfast whilst the local wildlife visited every morning, Two little birds who seemed so tame, as after a couple of days would fly onto our chairs and sit with us, We were lucky to see the monkey only once though, he just stood on top of the fence and seemed to be as intrigued by us as we were of him, Tiny lizards would scoot back and fore by the fence too and we saw a very unusual caterpillar on the terrace, about 5 inches long and very colourful, I could rabbit on and on about the cottage and bore everyone who reads this but I would just like to say this cottage is a must to stay in. I would like to say that the neighbours and locals made our holiday extra special as they showed so much friendliness and are very courteous people, I would like to say a Huge thank you to OB for letting us stay at his beautiful cottage and showing us so much hospitality, we cannot wait for our return. My advice to anyone looking at this cottage is, go ahead book it, you will not be disappointed, everything described is as it says and a very convenient place to stay for the beach supermarkets and restaurants.

Fantastic Stay

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Barb’s Cottage in December 2012. We had a fantastic time. The location is very convenient and close to the grocery store and just a very short walk to the beach. The photos of the cottage are very accurate. We loved the cottage feel. O’Brian was a great host and Jenny the taxi driver who picked us up and made her services available was a very delightful added bonus. The cottage is also close to bus service for those short jaunts to Holetown. The cottage is close to a major road but is gated in so children cannot wander out which is great for Families wishing to visit. Would we go back? Most definitely!!!!

Absolutely adored my stay at Barb's Cottage. The location was amazingly convenient and allowed for fast easy access to other parishes. The photos are very accurate the cottage is well taken care of, no worries of a "bait and switch". What you see is what you get but cuter! O'Brian was a wonderful host! We will be repeat customers no doubt about that!
