Best rental stay we have made.
Trevor was gracious enough to pick us up on Saturday night and give us a quick tour so we could get our bearings.
Maria`s rum punch was poured as soon as our bags were dropped and then we went straight to the gap , a short 2-3 minute walk.
Excellent location close to the bars and restaurants of the Gap with easy Bus route access for getting around the island.
The use of a local cell phone and landline while on the island was an excellent bonus.Wireless also good for internet to check out and make reservations for excursions restaurants etc etc.
Trevor was there on Sunday to see us off.
Although on the main road and close to the Gap we slept with no problems.Probably the rum punch along with the hum of the AC and fans kept us in dream land.
Would reccommend this apartment to anyone for location and Trevor and Maria`s great hospitality.
I hope the Brazil airline keeps the service running so we can return again soon.

Perfect Holiday, Perfect Accomodation!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful holiday with wonderful accommodation! The Booby Duck has everything you need for a great vacation. It is located in a great area, whether you are walking or want to take a bus. (There is even parking if you rent a car.)
The choice of cooking in the apartment or having so many great places to eat within a very short walking distance was fantastic.
The comfort of opening up the windows and doors and feeling the Caribbean breezes meant so much. Sitting out on the nice balcony, watching sunrises and sunsets was beautiful. It was fun seeing the odd blue heron and other birds fly by.
The roosters were entertaining, making us laugh at their chatter. Making us look forward to our dream of having our own roosters and chickens one day.
Thank you Maria and Trevor, your hospitality was very much appreciated. Thank you for the yummy rum punch!
We look forward to seeing you again, soon~
Stephen and Kathryn

A Great Month In Barbados

  • 5 of 5
Wow, can't describe it any other way than a spectacular month on the Island. The Booby Duck was just as advertised and lived up to every excellent review preceding this one. A touch of class was finding a bottle of Maria’s wonderful rum punch in the fridge at time of arrival and after a long flight, it turned out to be just what the doctor ordered. After that, the Rum Punch Fairy showed up numerous times to replenish our ever depleting stock and there is no question, it’s the best on the Island. The location of the Booby Duck is great, a short stroll to the Gap, and a nice morning walk to Accra and the Boardwalk (we like long walks). The Island just continually serves up one great day after another. Believe me, you will never rent a vacation property belonging to nicer and more helpful people than Trevor and Maria… Thanks a bunch T/M, hope to see you again!

Caribbean perfection

  • 5 of 5
We had such a lovely stay and Trevor, our host, could not have been more helpful. He was responsive to all out thousand questions and provided a cell phone for our use on the island. He cheerfully offerred to drive us around the island, but we were so relaxed and content just to lie on the beach, that we declined. Another reason to come back in the future! His wife provided us with the most delicious Rum punch, and although we do not usually drink, we ordered another bottle before we left.
Booby Duck cottage was absolutely perfect. Our home away from home. It was clean and stocked with everything we could need, including beach towels and a clothes line for drying wet swim wear! It was right on the bus route and we were able to travel all over the island for $1 per person.
We loved the porch where we enjoyed lovely sunlit breakfasts, and listened to the neighborhood cocks crowing (not audible inside the cottage).
Thank you Trevor and Ryan for the trip back to the airport and the use of your lovely cottage. Next time we will plan to stay for 2 weeks as the time went waaaay too quickly!

Owner's Response: "Thousand Questions!" .... you Guys were like Church Mice! Okay, maybe 10 questions, but that's okay! Yes..Yes you must come for longer, it's not a complete visit without seeing the East Coast. I'm drinking a Pirate Ryan's Rum Punch as I type this....great to me too (I'm biased). Our Den (vrbo#443814) downstairs Booby Duck is picking up and great response so far also! Have a Fantastic 2013 and hope to see you back sooner rather than later...Thanks Eric & Gail, All the Best, Trevor, Maria, Melissa & Ryan.

The Booby Duck is the best place to stay at St. Lawrence Gap!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed 16 days at the Booby Duck and it became our home away from home. The location is perfect for getting around southern Barbados. Walking distance to beaches, restaraunts, bars, markets, and banks. A 7 min. cab ride to Oistins for some of the best food on the island. The sunsets are beautiful, the people are wonderful, and Maria's Rum Punch is the best rum punch we had our whole stay. The booby duck is such a cute little cottage, with lots of character.

Owner's Response: Once again we have been blessed with a wonderful couple! They had some of the most beautiful weather a September in Barbados can offer you... little or no rain and spectacular sunsets! J & C took the plunge with a rental car for a few days and managed to see quite a bit of the rock. Maria's Rum Punch...we need to plant more lime trees. Thanks Guys! Continued success in all of life's endeavours...Salud!
