About O'Brian (OB)

My name is O'Brian and I am born and bred Bajan. Along with my Brother Sheldon we are the proud owners of this cottage. The cottage is named after our mother Barbara. However we have taken our initiative for 'Barbs Cottage' from our father Denzil who has been welcoming guest to this island whilst driving his taxi for the last 50 years.

During your stay either myself, Sheldon or my Dad Denzil is available to you to answer any questions show you the sites or just to say hi at any time.

O'Brian (OB) purchased this house in 2009

Perfect Barbados Experience

  • 5 of 5

I spent seven glorious weeks in Barbados at Barb's Cottage. As my first visit to Barbados, Barb's Cottage sounded like a great way to experience an original cottage, with history, in a great location, at a very reasonable price - and it was. As OB said, I was never home! Catching the bus, off to the many beaches on the west coast and more distant locations - never a dull day. Yet my favourite days were with visiting family, the people and the turtles at the local Fitts Beach, and shopping at the local Jordan's Supermarket. OB responded to my inquiries before my arrival and during my stay. He was also interested in my feedback about some upgrades for future renters (couch, cookware, grill, TV). Great time. Thanks for making Barb's Cottage available to me, OB!

Owner's Response: Hi Amy great to hear that you loved both the cottage and my island. We always do our best to ensure that you enjoy both. The couch I will get a new, softer cushion for it. Thank you for staying with us and i do look forward to seeing you again for your annual vacation away from the cold

Two weeks in heaven.

  • 5 of 5

This was the sweetest cottage. My family and I could not have asked for more. We highly recommend this cottage. OB, his business partner and father were so welcoming. Great location, easy beach access and easy buss access. There is a delicious ice cream parlor at the end of the lane. We will definitely be coming back.

Three weeks on the West Coast

  • 5 of 5

My family (Mom, Dad and three boys 17, 15 and 12) spent three weeks in July at Barb's Cottage and loved every minute. The cottage is as described in the listing and in previous reviews and it has everything we needed; plenty of towels, comfortable beds, a great outdoor shower, a nice little outdoor patio, ceiling and standing floor fans, fast internet and a washing machine. From the initial contact the owner OB answered all our questions and was very helpful. We were met at the cottage by OB's father who later dropped of mangoes - the best we've ever had! We were at the beach across the road almost every day as it was the kids' favourite one. We had a car for the first week but it was not necessary unless you really wanted to explore the island on your own time schedule, the bus was great. For the last two weeks we walked to the local grocery store for supplies and treats, and took the bus (the yellow one as well as the blue one - both $2Barbados - they came by often) into Holetown. On Sunday mornings the ice cream truck came outside our door too. We had a great stay here and I would definitely recommend it. It's in a super location and it is easy to get around. We would stay here again for sure.

A Barbados Gem!

  • 5 of 5

In preparing for a month long vacation to my "Happy Place" (aka Barbados), I was looking for accomodations that were ideally located to allow me to submerse myself in the Bajan culture. Barb's did just that & more! The location of this Cottage couldn't be better; just a short bus-ride or walk to everything you could want (Supermarket-5min walk-, Waves Spa next door, Il Tempio Italian restaurant-5min walk, best pizza, great sunset location, and so much more!). The beach is located right accross the street and there is a sea view from the entrance. The bedrooms are spacious, and the remainder of the cottage is well laid out. I spent most time at the cottage out on the veranda which faced the sun during the day and provided an overhead roof in the sitting area. The owner, O'Brian is very attentive and wants to make sure you have everything you need to make your holiday enjoyable. He seeks out ideas and recommendations to improve the property which is very much appreciated. I was a little concerned about the lack of air conditioning, but I can honestly say that I was very comfortable. There are ceiling fans in every room, and floor fans in the bedrooms. This is a traditional chattel house which was built to handle the heat. Being across the street from the sea always provides a nice evening breeze to make your stay quite comfortable. I have already recomended this little oasis to others and will continue to do so. I can say without a shadow of a doubt that I will be back and will stay here many more times in the future. Thank you so much O'Brian, Michael, Jenny and all of the others that made this a holiday to remember! I cannot wait to see you all again very soon!

Barb's Cottage

  • 5 of 5

There are only wonderful things to say about this great little chattel home. The cottage, as I call it, is exactly as the pictures show. It is very clean, quaint and extremely comfortable. The cottage has all the amenities you will require. The location of the cottage is excellent – close to the beach (with its partial ocean view), grocery store and bus for an easy commute into either Holetown or Bridgetown or for travelling anywhere around this amazing island. There are a couple of restaurants close by, within walking distance (Wendys and IL Tempio). Both have great food and bajan hospitality. I would definitely recommend both to everyone. OB is a remarkable host and is only a phone call away, if needed. He arranged our airport transfers with Michael and Jenny, both who are very helpful and friendly as well. On our arrival Michael stopped by the grocery store so we could pick up some supplies before taking us onto the cottage. I truly had a hard time leaving after my 3 week stay and hope to be back soon. Thanks OB for sharing your place! Gloria.
