About Brian FitzGerald
We are a large family, 13 siblings, from a town in Northern NY along the Canadian border.
My father acquired the property some years ago to have some relief from the tough upstate NY winters.
I manage the property for the family, my siblings and their families are heavy users of the property.
Brian FitzGerald purchased this house in 1963
Why Brian FitzGerald chose Long Bay
Barbados is English speaking.
All the comforts of home are close at hand if you want them as Barbados is one of the most developed islands in the region. The literacy rate approaches 98% and the capital Bridgetown and its surrounds are booming.
Our property is away from the luxury resorts of the west coast and the well-developed south coast, so if you are looking for a highly developed commercial resort setting, that is not our property. We are a short drive from the well-developed southern coast should you wish to access it.
Our property is located on the Southeast coast which is where you’ll find what makes the island special. Steady cooling easterly trade winds and a pristine natural setting. The property is located beachfront in a quiet, upscale and safe residential setting, close to supermarkets, restaurants and bars. The property has its own beach, there are a number of beaches within walking distance and Crane Beach, one of the finest beaches on the island is 10 minutes by car.
Barbados is a great package, and despite its popularity, you’ll have no trouble making it your own. Away from the glitz, it’s still a place of classic calypso rhythms, an island-time vibe and world-famous rums.
Half a million people can’t be wrong. That’s the number of visitors Barbados attracts annually, and it doesn’t take long before you see why they come by the planeload: the coasts are ringed by the kinds of azure-water and white-sand visions that fuel the fantasies of Brits, Americans and Canadians stuck shivering away in some snowy winter clime.
What makes this house unique
The property is a unique opportunity for the budget conscious wanting a private ocean front natural setting but not wanting to incur the high cost of a luxury villa. The house is charming, roomy, comfortable and simply furnished.
Guestbook comments from the owner
The beach house is very reasonably priced and quite comfortable. Firstly, it's in a beautiful ocean location in wild, windswept and unspoiled south-east Barbados. There are several adjacent quiet beaches within an easy walk, swimming conditions being a function of the wind conditions. Crane Beach and the stunning Bottom Bay - two of the best beaches on the island - are just a 5 minute drive away. There is also always safe swimming for small children and the elderly at Shark Hole, a 5 minute walk away. The location is ocean-front in a quiet residential neighborhood- local shopping and dining options are a few minutes by car. There is bus service right down the street, we rented a car.The house itself is simply furnished with everything needed including washer/dryer. The lack of air conditioning we thought would be a problem for us but in fact was not, pleasant mid-80’s during the day and mid-70’s a night. Each room is furnished with one or more fans, we never used them. Marcia (the maid) is absolutely lovely. Overall, we were very satisfied with the house but will note it’s not for those wanting a luxury villa. In summary, we plan to stay there again next year, and would recommend it to others, it’s a heck of a value!
