Dear Jenny,

You've built wonderful place with beauty, peace and quiet. We spent here a happy holidays, Barbados has so much to offer, what we liked the most is the East Coast (Crane Beach - the favour one for my kids, Foul Beach with very strony waves - that gave us a lot experience and respect, Harri Smith and Bottom Bay - beauty for me, Bathsheba with surfers and the best cuisine (for us of course) in the Atlantic Hotel, pottery places especially one at Chalky Mount (with the presentation how to does it), snorking with turtles, tase of the St Nicholas Abbey rum, beauty of Farley Hill and Codrington Collage .. yesterday we experienced the wildlife reserve that was sth especially rainforest



Special thanks for Cecily, she is the good sprit of the house.



thank you indeed and I hope to return here some day

A Great Vacation!

  • 5 of 5
Crows Nest in Barbados exceeded our expectations. The home is gorgeous and very well maintained not to mention the view is stunning of the ocean. The sound of the waves will relax you from the moment you arrive. Cecily the house keeper treats the home and guests like it was her own home and family. The hospitality and warmth of the islanders is exceptional. We rented a car and got around the island with ease. The restaurants we went to were (Cutters, Berts, Champers and McBrides) and the food was very good. The Emerald Grocery store was also very convenient for stocking the kitchen. We visited the Harrison Caves, St. Nicholas Abbey - Great rum samples, The Flower Forrest, the Raggedy Light House, Sam Lords Castle - Great beaches here, Bathsheba - See the very cool mushroom rocks. The beaches were clean with beautiful scenery. The warm sand is soft white and pink. We could not have asked for better weather for our vacation. We had a outstanding vacation and will be back at Crows Nest and Barbados in the future. Only next time we will stay longer than a week. Thanks Barbados, your hospitality is definitely underrated!

Sincerely,
Lee Czerwonka
Mayor, City of Blue Ash, Ohio

pure utopia

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I spent 8 wonderful days here with my brother and his girlfriend. As I had never been to Barbados, I did not know what to expect except for the photos on vrbo. Whatever my expectations were, this gorgeous place outdid them tenfold! Beautiful, meticulously designed, comfortable, so clean you could eat off the floor, views of the Atlantic spectacular with cooling breezes,....I could go on and on! Cecily the housekeeper was sweet and so very kind...and very efficient. I cried when we had to leave and she gave me a big hug. We will definitely be back one day! Thank you, Jenny, for the use of your beautiful house.

Pure Magic

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful trip to Crow's Nest over the March/ Spring break. We are already trying to squeeze another trip in before the end of the year.

The view is breathtaking and you, truly, never get tired of gazing out over it from the house. We kept the doors and windows open and never used the AC but just listened to the sound of the sea and were cooled by the constant breeze off the water.

We have two children (11 and 12) and they spent most of their house time in the pool.

The information in the house was very useful and we spent our time between Crane Bay Beach and Miami Beach. On the advice of Stoutes (Lynn) we had a wonderful dinner at Cafe Luna. Jenny, the owner, was really pleasant to deal with and Stoutes made sure everything was in order.

The house is exactly as it appears in the photo's, if not better. Cecily keeps it sparkling clean and is delightful and helpful. It is equipped with everything you could need and is beautifully designed and decorated. We felt immediately welcomed and it was easy to relax. We have rented houses in many places (this is our preferred way of going on vacation) and can say Crow's Nest rates top of our list.

We hired a car and found the driving around very easy. Locals are friendly and easy going and we quickly got the hang of things. On a second trip we would make a point of stopping closer to Bridgetown for a larger supermarket to stock up. There are local facilities but the closer to the major city you get, the better your choice. We stayed local, and not the imports, with our purchases and we very happy.

All round a vacation that was pure magic and we can't wait for a repeat.

Unforgettable stay

  • 5 of 5
Me and my fiancé wanted to go to Barbados to share there some delightful holidays.

We were looking for a nice villa with sea view, where we have a private time just together. After having looked through a lot of offers, we found finally the house of our dreams: Crow's Nest.

We sent a mail to the owner to ask if it's available and got a quick reply, that it's free in the time where we wished to book it. We confirmed everything and were very excited to make holidays in this little peace of paradise.
Before we arrived, we asked Jenny, the owner, some questions that were important for us. She always responded quickly and clearly so that all our questions were answered before we arrived.

The best plan to reach the house, is to take a car directly at the airport. I guess it is also possible to do it somehow by bus, but with a car it's much easier and the way isn't difficult to find.

At the day of our arrival the housekeeper welcomed us. We felt very comfortable from the beginning. The house looks much bigger than the pictures are able to show it. The housekeeper guide us though it and explained us how the security system works. Later we went outside to see the garden and enjoyed the view on the ocean.

The house is directly located at the cliff so that you have free view on the Atlantic sea. The neighbour houses are not too close to the building so that you have a lot of privacy.

Inside the house you have a very big kitchen that contains everything you need for cooking. A lot of different pans, muffin forms, cheese grater, juice squeezer...everything you need for preparing nice dishes. The fridge and the freezer offer a lot of space to store your food. The best idea is to put the food directly after your arrival from the supermarket in the fridge, 'cause even if the temperatur doesn't feel too hot, the food rots very quickly if you don't put it ASAP in the fridge (even rolls).

All the other rooms are like in the description and completely satisfied our needs.

The housekeeper arrived everyday to clean up the house. We were normally out of the house shortly after she entered because we planned a lot for each day. But when we came back home everything was very clean and tidied up.

As a conclusion I would say that we definitely like to come back. Jenny was a perfect host and the house is a place, where you have to feel feel comfortable. Even if you will arrive with 6 persons, there is more than enough free space for each.

Beautiful Holiday by the Ocean

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 4 stayed at Crow's Nest for 2 weeks in July. From the moment we arrived, we knew our stay would be fantastic. The house was as beautiful as the website pictures, even more so. The two bedrooms downstairs are large, comfortable and beautifully decorated, and the en-suite bathrooms were perfect for two young adults. The upstairs master bedroom was stunning - from the king sized sleigh bed, to the amazing double walk in shower with ocean views! Having come from "mosquito-land" we were prepared for bugs of all kinds; it was a pleasant surprise to see virtually none, and so we were able to open all the doors and shutters in the mornings to enjoy the ocean breezes. My favourite time of day was early in the morning, sitting out on the patio with a cup of coffee and enjoying the views of the ocean. Everything you need to cook a dinner was available in the kitchen, and I would definitely recommend having Margerite come in and cook for you, especially the first night you arrive. What a welcome to Barbados! The gardens are beautiful and full of interesting creatures, like anole lizards, "halloween" crabs, whistiling frogs and the occasional toad. If you are lucky enough to be here on a full moon night, you are in for a treat. Cecily was wonderful; very kind and helpful and a real pleasure to get to know. Nothing is really far away from this part of the island, although you will need a rental car to get to many tourist attractions. We did take a taxi to a few dinners and the price is very reasonable. There were many books and magazines in the house with recommendations for sightseeing and dining out. Cutters is only about 5 minutes away and has the island's best flying fish sandwiches and rum punch! The whole area around the house is very quiet and we always felt very secure at night. If you are planning a holiday in Barbados, we highly recommend renting Crow's Nest - it will meet and surpass any of your vacation needs. Our whole family agreed that we would love to come back!

Holiday at Crow's Nest February 2011

Holiday at Crow's Nest February 2011
  • 5 of 5
Crow's Nest is a beautiful, beautiful place, not only the position and design of the house but also the way it is furnished. We felt very much at home there, with details like the quality of the towels and the bedding making such a difference too. We cooked at home a number of evenings, and the kitchen was very well set up with everything we could have needed, and all really nice quality and easy to use. We also went out for dinner, and found that we could walk over to the Crane Resort (about 35 minutes), have drinks and dinner there and then get a taxi back, which was only about $20 Barbados. That gave us all the flexibility we could want as there are several restaurants over there. The area Crow's Nest is in is a residential one, with friendly local people around and 2 good supermarkets within a 5 minute drive, and lovely secluded gardens with total privacy and stunning views over the sea from every room. We struggled to find anything that you could improve really - Cecily, the maid, was a delight, so warm and easy going and just nice to have around, and she kept the house immaculately. Stoutes were also very helpful, not that we needed to call on them very much. We have raved to friends and family and recommended Crow's Nest to them wholeheartedly. Thank you again for giving us the chance to stay in your lovely home and if we get the opportunity to come back to Barbados, we will most definitely be returning to Crow's Nest.

Barbados is a small island, just 14 by 21 miles, so everything is within easy reach. The villa is located in Ocean City a small community in the parish of St Philip (there are 11 Parishes similar to English Counties) to the southeast of the island. There are many local beaches, the nearest being Foul Bay, less than 10 mins drive away or about 20 mins walk along the cliff edge. It is a beautiful long sandy beach ideal for walks and picnics. Crane Beach (Sunday Telegraph best beach) is also less than 10 mins away.

There is a well equipped supermarket and mini-mart just 5 mins away. The Barbados Golf Club is 10 mins away, there are many restaurants within a 20 minutes drive and St Lawrence Gap with its wealth of night life is less than 30 minutes away, but if you want a really relaxing evening there is nothing better than staying in and watching the moon glisten on the waves of the Atlantic.
