Tranquillity, rolling countryside and the lapping of the Atlantic Ocean just a stone‘s throw is what you will find at The Pool House. The wrap around veranda is reminiscent of the olden day’s plantation homes which brings the outside in. Dining on the veranda is a must. This one bedroom cottage comes equipped with all modern conveniences and is tastefully decorated in a modern contemporary style. The open plan living dining kitchen is connected to the veranda by custom designed patio doors which open to bring the veranda and the pool right on your doorstep. Just imagine yourself sunning on the sundeck by the pool while the sound of the Atlantic Ocean caresses your senses; barbequing in the secluded gardens or watching the sunrise over Foul Bay Beach from your bedroom window. Come on, what are you waiting for...
Peaceful Getaway, Ideal for Honeymooners, Couples, Young Families
About Anthea Lashley-Small
We are a British couple who spend part of our time in the UK and part of our time in Barbados. The Pool House was built as an annex to the main house and is used as an entertainment area by us when guests are not in residence. We DO NOT rent The Pool House nor the pool for pool parties. We are into organic gardening and you are free to enjoy the fruits of our labour of whatever is in season.
Anthea Lashley-Small purchased this Cottage in 2017
Why Anthea Lashley-Small chose Foul Bay
This property was designed by the owners. It was designed to bring the outside in and the inside out. This property is ideal for nature lovers, the sound of the ocean and the smell of fresh air. The Pool House is located in a residential area and so is very quiet and peaceful.
What makes this Cottage unique
The Pool House offers privacy, tranquillity, a private swimming pool (shared only by the owners) - all the luxuries of a hotel at a fraction of the cost. Maid service and meals can be arranged for an additional cost.

Thanks to Anthea and Nick for a wonderful stay in their lovely cottage.
They made it so easy for us to feel at home and nothing was too much trouble, including airport pickup (recommended).
The house is very roomy for two people. A gentle breeze blows through the windows and there is an electric fan above the bed to keep you cool during the warm nights.
The pool is perfect for some gentle fitness to complement sunbathing in the garden.
Our top 5 highlights of Barbados so far:

Very confortable and quiet.
Very plasant hostess and host.
Gerald, Quebec city
Such a fabulous gentleman. Gerald was a wonderful guest, it was a pleasure hosting him.
On arriving at The Pool House, Gerald realised that because of its secluded location, it was wise to be greeted at the airport. The property is easy to find once you know how. Its just tucked away down a private road.
Gerald joined us for a barbecue and a few days later for a dinner which we generally host for guests who stay with us for two weeks or more. It gives us the opportunity to get to know each other and allow guests to try local foods. We generally prepare the meals using Caribbean fruits, vegetables and starches, and where possible, from my garden, however, I prepared them in and English style so guests get to savor the dishes without being over-powered by spices.
Gerald was hardly around, as he went off to explore the island almost daily, but when he was in, we hardly knew he was there. He requested peace and a quiet environment, and we were pleased to be able to provide this. Thanks Gerald for being such a pleasant guest.
Private Bungalow with Pool close to the beach
The picture gives a good impression. You will find a super clean private bungalow with pool close to a white beach. The hosts live next door - will leave you alone but will always be there always friendly in case you have a question or need something
Thank you Michaela, Klaus and Ron. This booking was done by Michaela whom I got to meet via the internet. The actual guests were the father and son duo of Klaus and Ron. It was a pleasure hosting them. Michaela had them well trained - they left the cottage spotless. Since we began our holiday let, I can say that all our guests have been exceptional. We have enjoyed their company, we've enjoyed sharing our home, our garden and our island with them. Again we got to know a little about foreign lands and our guests' interest as we shared produce from our garden in a home cooked meal. Klaus and Ron were able to sample Nick's homemade ice-cream from passion fruit from our garden. Thanks Klaus and Ron for the lovely book of photography of Germany. I hope to visit there one day. Thanks for being fabulous guests.
