A Little Bit Of Paradise
This was my 4 th trip to Barbados in 4 years,and I usually stay on the West Coast for the tranquility and beaches of course.
I was a bit apprehensive when I saw the listing for this house in St Philip as I was unfamiliar with the area.
After reading all the positive reviews I decided to go ahead and book for 3 weeks in january.
I am so glad I did, the house is charming ,beautifully landscaped ,comfortable and equipped with everything you might need
except food of course.
The owners Helena and Roman are the perfect hosts and are willing to be tour guide , personal shopper ,taxi driver and the list goes on.
The house is situated 10 minutes from a lovely beach with great amenities,i.e. ...shade ,food ,washrooms and great swimming.
I was not looking for Bars or Restaurants but if u did desire that a quick 15 minute car ride would get to St Lawrence Gap .I rented a Moke for the first time and it was so much fun.
I have to say from the moment I was welcomed at the airport by the petite Helena with the big smile I was sure
I had made the right decision.
To show the heart of these people ,I made a mistake on my airline reservation and had to book a hotel for my last night.
Online it looked ok with great reviews ,Helena dropped me off .The place was like a concrete box ,very clean comfy beds but
the only light was from glass blocks in the shower.
Next morning I am sitting outside having a coffee and who comes around a corner but Helena with her bright green dress and big smile.
She said she could not leave me at the hotel all day ,took me to the beach ,then back to her house till airport time .
Helena and Roman have built this bit of Paradise and choose to share with us the lucky ones.
I was in Barbados alone this trip ,travelled the whole island by car alone never feeling unsafe.
Next year same time I am bringing my husband and friends to enjoy the Island of Barbados I love so much !
Thank u Helena and Roman for the wonderful time and we will see u same time next year.
