A True "Must-See"
A True "Must-See"
Farther Away is a delightfully-decorated cottage situated high on a cliff, overlooking a secluded beach and bathed in gorgeous sunrises. The cottage is prefect for either relaxation or for adventure; or better yet, both. The property is impeccably maintained and the owners are readily available to discuss related questions prior to, and during one's visit. The photo images on the VRBO website don't even begin to do justice to the beauty of the cottage and its beautiful location. Sadly, there has not been a camera invented that can capture the fresh morning breezes which sweep across the large veranda and through the cottage.
For those wanting to see Barbados' true personality and beauty, the location is perfect, minutes from Bathsheba's rugged coastline and the rest of the East Coast bays and inlets. The world-famous Soup Bowl surf break is no more than 15-20 minutes away. A short drive brings one to the hilly, picturesque "Scotland District", Harrison's Cave, the Barbados Wildlife Reserve, and many more of the island's treasures. Farther Away also offers its own micro version of the Wildlife Reserve in the form of the small colony of cute Barbados Green Monkeys which inhabit the trees and bushes on the cliff face. Do not try to befriend or feed the monkeys; they are, after all, wild animals. Just sit back and enjoy watching them.
The house has a well-equipped kitchen as indicated on the website. For those days and evenings when dining out sounds more appealing, a short drive to the south finds The Crane resort with its array of outstanding restaurants. A short drive north brings one to the Atlantis and Round House restaurants in Bathsheba. Day trips to the upscale West Coast beaches and shoppes and bustling capital city of Bridgetown are very easy as is access to the beautiful South Coast beaches and the myriad restaurants and night life of St. Lawrence Gap.
Earlier comments have mentioned the rum punch. What more can I say? The best!
All in all, our experience at Farther Away completely met our expectations. We wouldn't hesitate to return and will whole-heartedly recommend it to others.
Owner's Response: We accept that the photos do not do justice to the house or view and will be getting a professional photographer to take photos for our VRBO website in the not too distant future. The monkeys are very cute and just as curious about people as people are about them so just enjoy their antics and don't feed or try to pet them.
