Oasis at the End of the Lane

We were instantly drawn to Cherry Garden Villa Cottage when we found it on line. We contacted Lorna who described the new studio to be completed early in 2010 and we were happy to proceed with our booking. Communicating electronically was quick and easy and Lorna answered all of our questions regarding facilities, location, deposits, etc in a timely manner. She advised us to pre-arrange for a taxi at the airport since Cherry Garden Villa is not signed at the roadway. We followed her suggestion and were pleased to be delivered to the new studio apartment - the first guests to use the accommodations! We were greeted warmly and found ourselves settling easily into our garden home. The interior of the studio is both attractively and functionally decorated. There is a very complete kitchen, elegant linens for bed and bath, a roomy hot-water shower, television with multi-channels, DVD player, comfy chairs and the option of ceiling fan and open windows or air conditioning.
We enjoyed all of our 'at home' meals outside on the covered deck, and were quite comfortable on the lounges provided, for relaxing with a good book or catching the sun after a swim in the salt-water pool. The landscaping on the property creates a lovely island environment, rich with colours and sounds of birds. The location truly is within a three-minute walk of the beach we most enjoy - Rockley/Accra Beach. Early morning walks on the beach and boardwalk as well as sunset swims are favourite passtimes for many who stay in the area. For an energetic walker, Big B grocery store, Worthing Beach, Cave Sheppard and Bert's Bar are good destinations. Even closer, one finds convenience stores, tourist shopping and restaurants for all tastes and budgets. We hired a car from Courtesy for a couple of days so that we could re-visit some of the sites that we enjoyed on other trips to the island. We were pleased to find the re-opened Harrison Caves.The new visitor centre and elevators into the valley are interesting and picturesque, while the journey into the caves plus the excellent presentations by staff make for a wonderful adventure!
Lorna and Robert, who have created the lovely oasis at Cherry Garden are friendly, interesting professionals, who are most attentive and responsive to the needs of their guests. We sincerely look forward to returning to Barbados for a visit with them and to another stay at Cherry Garden Studio and would highly recommend these accommodations to others.
