Barbados offers an opportunity to experience a Caribbean lifestyle influenced by its traditional British history. The first settlers arrived in1627, and the island still retains its British Parliamentary system. It has a reliable infrastructure, and offers the comforts and safety of most Western countries.
Since the island is roughly triangular in shape, the 3 coasts offer a totally different ambience. The east coast bordered by the Atlantic ocean, is wild, rugged, beautiful, isolated, and unsuitable for swimming in most areas. The south coast, has heavy surf, and is more industrial, commercial, and has numerous fast food outlets, and local markets. The west coast, known internationally as the Platinum Coast, borders the blue Caribbean Sea, which is normally calm and suitable for all varieties of water sports.
As Barbados lies outside the hurricane belt, usual weather is blue sunny skies and white puffy clouds, normal showers being of short duration. Average daily high 30C. Sea temperature's a constant 80F.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Thank you for the welcome home. We had a great vacation and enjoyed the ease of having the beach access your home provides. The weather could have been better, but at the same time clouds kept the heat at bay some which was nice for a pregnant mom! We did get to see wildlife, monkeys at Welchman’s Gully along with plenty of snorkeling. The mongooses were funny little things and we caught one doing a balancing act on the blue foot bucket trying to get a drink one morning. We left 2 orange sand buckets and shovels under the stairs as it was one item our daughter desired and we thought you might want to keep on hand for any future visitors with kids. We enjoyed your home and appreciate your follow up. Thanks again.
