We had a wonderful stay at Tamarind Cottage! The home was very comfortable for four people and we loved being able to sit on the deck shaded by trees, hear the waves and walk down the stairs to the ocean. The location is wonderful and a half mile walk to our favorite beach near JuJu's Beach Bar. We commented more than once about how well equipped the kitchen is. The property manager was extremely helpful and accommodating if we had any questions - we didn't need much help though as they had thought of everything. In addition to lounge chairs to use at the small beach on the property, there are also kayaks and stand up paddle boards for shared use with guests renting other apartments on the grounds. The Cottage grounds is shared by other apartments - so there are a few people walking by from time to time. We enjoyed getting to know some of the other guests nearby- that's up to you if you interact much or not. If you plan to do cooking keep in mind it is an electric stove and a little tight cooking quarters. You will enjoy your stay at Tamarind Cottage!
The Gingerbread Cottage was better than expected. Close to Holetown but secluded enough to truly enjoy the serenity and beauty of the breathtaking views from the sun porch. My husband and I spent a great deal of time on the porch enjoying the horses in the paddock below or an occasional monkey climbing on the fence or a parrot flying by. The cottage was simply stated, but freshly painted white and the linens smelled so fresh. A beautiful breeze comes through the windows and is so tranquil and never any bugs. The pool was refreshing, clean and always quiet. The homeowners are delightful. Always there if we needed something but never intrusive. This was my first trip to Barbados and it is by far my favorite island and I look forward to going back. I truly cleansed my soul at the Gingerbread Cottage.
