Turtle Cottage is a delightful holiday home set high on a cliff top with breath taking views of the rugged coast, beautiful ocean and dramatic reef. Built in a traditional Bajan style but with an open plan concept, the cottage features a sea facing verandah where you can enjoy an outdoor living experience, lying in a hammock and relaxing.
A luxuriant tropical garden surrounds the cottage which is walled and secure. A gate leads to an attractive pool and gazebo set amongst flowers, shrubs and sculptures overlooking the sea.
The cottage has original artwork, sculptures, and is well equipped with appliances, efficient BBQ and comfortable furniture.
There is also cable TV, DVD, CD player and iPod dock, telephone and WiFi.
The owner can arrange car hire and will meet you at the airport.
We were lucky enough to stay at Turtle cottage for 2 weeks and it completely exceeded all of our expectations. The property and location are just as stunning and idyllic as they look, and we can't speak highly enough of Pat. She couldn't have been more helpful with local knowledge and advice, and despite being our first time in Barbados, she helped make us feel like knowledgeable travellers instead of bungling tourists.
We have have recommended this property to all of our friends and family - and to anyone else who would listen. Thanks again, Pat.

Almost speechless when I woke up in the morning and went onto the balcony and took in the view of the sea and garden, the smell of the sea, the sound of the ocean, the cottage and garden is a sensory heaven. I wanted a few days "switch off" from phones and TV and laptops and other people and I found all of these in spades. I'm still recovering from the shock of leaving and arriving back here. If you want to get away from all of the crap of life in the rat race then get over here, you don't need a therapist any more, just sit on the deck, face the sea and sky and feel the breeze and relax and relax. It's taken me this long to write ths but time flies back on the hamster wheel!

We spent the most idyllic week at Turtle Cottage with our toddler son. What a wonderful, tranquil spot, and such stunning views. Not many things can beat breakfast on a sunny veranda listening to the waves below and watching the resident turtles waking up. Thank you Pat for your warm and natural hospitality - you and the cottage both come HIGHLY recommended.
This place is absolutely incredible. We had a group of 4 people (late 20's/early 30's) staying here, and it was perfect. Amazing views, super clean, and everything you need to feel at home. Pat, you were absolutely the best host we could have hoped for. Your endless tips and directions were greatly appreciated! You made us feel welcome and comfortable within seconds of arriving. The cottage is close to everything you need (which for us was basically food, beer and rum) The best part for me was the tortoises that live on the property. What a cool experience to be able to hang out in paradise with a bunch of friendly tortoises!! Like nothing I have ever experienced before. Super clean pool and deck that we took full advantage of! There is plenty of cookware, towels, games, etc. I cannot say enough positive things about this place. Pat also fully arranged a catamaran ride for us. That was a day I will never forget. Thank you so much Pat for your generosity. We will most definitely return... Hopefully as soon as possible!
My husband and I just got back from Barbados and a 5 night stay at Turtle Cottage. I actually hesitated in writing this review because we would prefer to keep this location a secret for fear it will never be available. What a wonderful trip! Unfortunately Pat was not at home during our trip but she kindly arranged for her friends to meet us at the airport, take us to the nearest grocery store, and let us into the cottage. They even stayed while we got settled and then we followed them to a close by town where we could grab some dinner. They went above and beyond the call of duty. We could not have been more happy with our choice to stay at Turtle Cottage. There was nothing we needed that the cottage didn't provide. The view was spectacular and it was amazing watching the sunrise from the Master Bedroom. Like many before us we enjoyed spending time by the pool and lounging on the deck just as much as we enjoyed touring around the island in our Moke (also arranged by Pat). We spent time on both the East Coast as West Coast of the island and liked both for different reasons. Exploring is a MUST. There were lots of "pets" on the property (turtles and cats) that often greeted us when we returned to the cottage but never bothered us as they preferred the shade of the lovely gardens. We would love to return with our children another time (or two...or three). For now it is back to the cold and dreaming of Turtle Cottage and Barbados. Pat, my only suggestion would be to have a page highlighting the things renters should know (re: locking-up, garbage, places to visit, important phone numbers etc.) in the event that you are not there to share your wealth of knowledge. :) Thanks for having us - we have told everyone who will listen about our wonderful experience.

Turtle Cottage really is as stunning as its photos. The view.....there are no words to adequately describe that magical view. Owner Pat is so kind and accommodating. We loved the house and location so much so that we stayed in most nights to cook, relax and enjoy the terrace view. The tortoises in the garden added to the cottage's charm. Beautiful Foul Bay Beach is a short drive away and is not to be missed. We would stay at Turtle Cottage again in a heartbeat.
Ocean City is a small community in the Parish of St. Philip on the south east coast of the Island, about 10 minutes from the Airport. There are many unspoiled beaches nearby, the nearest being Foul Bay, about 5 minutes drive. We are also close to the world famous Crane Hotel with all it's facilities which can be used.
Nearby is a supermarket, garage, several churches and bars. The Barbados Golf Club is 10 minutes away and there are many restaurants and nightclubs St. Lawrence Gap.
Golf: Barbados Golf Club is 10 minutes away.
