Overview

Weston Cottage Rental Photos and Description

A Traditional Wooden 'Chattel' House With 2 Bedrooms

The Yellow House, Weston, St James – just 200 metres from the beach!

The Yellow House is our beautifully appointed cottage situated in extensive private tropical gardens, complete with fruit trees of every variety. Suitable for families or couples, this delightful cottage is in a quiet and peaceful location, yet only 200 metres from the magnificent white beaches of the West Coast, with shops, restaurants and hotel facilities within a walk or a short drive.

Built in traditional Chattel house style, with polished hardwood floors and high pine ceilings, this tastefully decorated property boasts a modern interior with open plan living space and a well- fitted and fully-equipped kitchen. There are two spacious double bedrooms, which can easily be configured as twins if required, complete with plenty of wardrobe space. There is also a well- equipped modern bathroom with shower.

The large verandah, which is accessed from the lounge area, provides the perfect place for al-fresco dining or a shady relaxing retreat to watch those amazing sunsets – maybe in the hammock with a glass of local rum!

This is a lovely vacation cottage set in an idyllic location which takes advantage of the gentle cooling Caribbean breezes. The garden is walled to the front with a fence all around and is safe for children.

Our large garden is equipped with swings, slide and a see-saw for the use of our guests’ children. We have our own fresh eggs and fresh fruit from the trees – an ideal breakfast to start your day!

For the adults we have lots of beach bars and restaurants. We have one 'Fish Fry' which is a must do. It is a takeaway about. three miles south. The Chief, who is reputed to have worked in Sandy Lane, grills fish or meat on the side of the road. I have never had the meat but the fish will blow your mind. It is a take it home thing and have a few beers and try to work your way through the finest food you have tasted.

Another past time is spot the stars. Cilla Black lives a few hundred yards away. Cliff Richard also has a place here. You meet the odd Rolling Stone. I saw Iain Woosnam a few weeks ago. Michael Flatley lives a half mile away.

Weather, the weather is nice.

About Kevin Woods

My name is Kevin Woods. I had a retail jewellery business in Ireland. I retired early and sailed to the Caribbean in 2007. I live here with my wife Angela and our three children, Matthew, K'jay and Rosella.

We have eight laying chickens, although some of them have days off, so I suppose I am now a chicken farmer. We have lots of fruit trees with every kind of fruit from Mangos and bananas to things I can't pronounce.

I'll add more when I remember questions people ask me.

Kevin Woods purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Kevin Woods chose Weston

We bought the house and moved it to where it is now. We have a big garden. We built our house at the back of the plot. We have lots of fruit trees in the middle. The Yellow House to the front of the land.

The area is quiet. There are no discos. Our house is close enough to The Yellow House to keep an eye on it but far enough away to allow privacy.

An authentic bajan house

  • 4 of 5

Great value for money. We had a wonderful stay at the Yellow House! We felt like we were residents of the island rather than tourists. Kevin (the owner) has been incredibly welcoming and shared his insights on the island's best spots, which included Port St-Charles Marina (for a great laid back afternoon), Martins's bay thursday's lunch happening, Mullins beach and more. We wanted a taste of bajan lifestyle and really found it there. We felt at home right away in the Yellow House. Everything you need for a self-catering family, without being too fancy. Best moment at the house : a morning coffee on the porch watching the monkeys and listening to the birds sing!

Great place and fantastic owners

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived at Barbados, Kevin picked us up at the airport. He is extremely nice, helful and has a welcoming warm family (and cats ;) that live next door. The place itself is simple, yet very pleasent and clean. Its about 7 min walk to a beautiful quiet beach and 5 min walk to bus stations, a vegetable stand and the fish market. It was a great experience and would defenitly come back.

Great value for money

  • 5 of 5

The Yellow House was great value for money and my wife & I had a really nice holiday. For an authentic stay enabling vistors to see the real Barbados we would definitely recommend this little cottage.

Kevin was outstanding in his willingness to help and his suggestions on where to visit, eat and socialize were excellent.

We didn’t hire a car for the week that we spent in Barbados, as we were perfectly happy walking and using the local bus services to see the West Coast of the Island. Kevin very obligingly drove us over to view the east coast, just so that we didn’t miss out on anything on our visit. He also picked us up and dropped us off at the airport, definitely above and beyond the call of duty!

Kevin’s suggested visit to Port St. Charles (near Speightown) was outstanding and we visited the resort twice because it was so nice.

We would recommend the Yellow House as clean, functional accommodation for people happy to self-cater. It isn’t a luxury hotel, but there’s the alternate benefits of being very relaxed and informal and it has everything you need for a great holiday. Thank you again Kevin and Angela for making us so welcome.

Great place for an amazing family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Kevin is a wonderful host for this great house in a residential neighbourhood, close to so many spectacular beaches. My 3 kids felt at home here, and had fun with Kevin's kids! Everybody was sad to leave...

The house is fully equipped but has no AC. At first I was skeptical that I would sleep well, but Kevin's words were true: the lovely island breeze combined with the ceiling fan made us have great sleep! The nights were never too hot and all was comfortable. We loved spending evenings on the balcony with a drink, while the kids were sleeping soundly.

The location of the house is ideal: the West Coast is perfect for swimming and you can find both high-end or budget restaurants. I do recommend renting a car and explore all coasts and sites of Barbados.

Finally, thank you Kevin for your great hospitality, we will always have great memories of our 10 days in Barbados!

The house was better then the pictures..

  • 5 of 5

We loved stay at Kevin's house, the house was spotless and our hosts were very helpful and pleasant.

We loved the house, the owners and the entire place.

Kevin, his wife and children were very nice and helpful, they recommended us all the best places to go.

We were very sad to leave the place, Kevin made us feel like home and this is pretty amaizing.

We will definately return.

We are located about five minutes from a fine white sandy beach. No rocks. If you walk north about two hundred yards you will see one of the finest beaches you have ever seen. Beautiful crescent shaped white sand with a backdrop of coconut and palm trees. Two miles North is Speightstown, a small town with two supermarkets. Two miles to the South is Holetown. It has a bigger supermarket with a more international feel to it. We are served by a super bus service. The cost is BB$2.00 to go anywhere. Although a car is not absolutely necessary it will enhance your stay greatly. A visit to the East Coast is recommended, to do this by bus might end up being a magical mystery tour.
