We just returned to Manhattan after spending 2 weeks at Turtle cottage. We went to Barbados to surf, at least my husband and 2 boys, ages 15 and 19 did:) Zed's surf shop is your best option . Turtle cottage is a pretty Bajan style cottage, painted in bright cheerful colors. The outdoor decks, with views of the ocean were it's best feature. Just looking at the view was amazing. There are 16 turtles roaming about, and it was fun to see/feed them. The pool is next to Pat's house, which is a short walk through the garden. We felt very safe, and the location is quiet. You need a car to get anywhere...The crane beach is 5 minutes away, and Bottom Bay is a 10 minute drive. Pat arranged a Catamaran trip for us our second week, and that was excellent. She even provided a birthday cake for my son's 20th. Thank-you Pat:) If you want to eat out I recommend Lone Star(west coast) Buzzo, or Champers.The outdoor restaurant by the pools at the Crane is a great treat for lunch. The closest grocery store id Emerald City. We spent a lot of time at Pebble Beach. You can rent kayaks and row out to 2 shipwrecks to snorkel. We love Barbados! The weather is perfect, the locals are friendly, and the food is delicious.
