How do you describe a two bedroom cottage that is set right on the beach that every catamaran takes its guests to hunt for sea turtles and watch the sun go down? This is the perfect beach house in the most idyllic cove on the nicest side of Barbados. Mahi Mahi is simple, which makes it absolutely ideal if you're looking for your own piece of paradise to sit back and watch the world go by from your own porch. Step off your porch and you are on beautiful Paynes Bay beach. If you're thinking of taking one of those beautiful sunset cruises, don't bother. They'll just be taking you to your front door. Everyone is so friendly. We felt 100% safe there and everywhere we traveled on the island. If you want to jet ski, water ski, tube or whatever, the guys on the beach are great, nice and fun, and they'll help you with whatever you want to do. A short walk in either direction on the beach are beautiful snorkeling reefs with tons of gorgeous fish and beautiful live coral. The water is crystal clear with that beautiful Caribbean aqua color. (I miss it already!) The swimming is absolutely great. What a treat! The house is just south of Holetown, which is a 30-minute walk along a spectacular beach. Everything you'll need is in town (which you can walk to on the beach or the road or simply flag a bus for $1 a ride and it's a three minute ride - supermarket, great restaurants all around up and down the beach and just across the street. We had the best time everyday. We ate great food in Holetown at the Surfside, the Lone Star (my personal favorite) is further north, Daphne's, a short walk to the south (a bit pricey) and the little house diagonally across the street to the left with the tiny sandwich board on the sidewalk where they serve you from the family kitchen excellent island food.
What a wonderful time we had in Barbados! Manfred is a great host, always available when needed while making himself invisible otherwise allowing us to have privacy. His home is right on the beach and is equipped with everything you need for a very comfortable stay. We explored all sides of the island as we rented a car and the beach the house is on is one of the prettiest for sure. Thank you
