About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Charming villa directly on the beach, located on the the popular West Coast. Master bedroom has private porch overlooking the Caribbean Sea and beach. This home has been lovingly cared for by the same family for 30 years and is the ideal vacation spot for two couples or a family of four. You cannot find a home closer to the water, and it is a true escape, surrounded by a lush tropical, lit garden. However, if you choose to have an active vacation, you can find a wide range of activities within 20 minutes of the house. Golf, tennis, water sports, shopping, etc. are all within reach. Housekeeping is provided, and additional services such as on-site massage, transfer to/from the airport and driver are available for an extra charge. The house is situated in Half Moon Fort, a tranquil fishing community with two restaurants and a convenience store. The supermarket in Speightstown and the fish market in Six Men's Bay would complete all of your grocery shopping needs. Master bedroom has a queen bed and second bedroom has two twin beds. Both rooms have sinks and air-conditioning.

Loved it

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful stay in a quaint little cottage directly on the beach in a tiny little fishing village. The local caretaker for the property won our hearts on the first day. Sounds of the waves 24/7 snorkeling in the ocean literally 20 feet from the house monkeys in the trees lovely flowers blooming in the garden and all the amenities of home. The owner of the property was extremely pleasant to deal with and easily accessible by telephone. We hope to be back soon for another adventure in Barbados! Would recommend this rental property to anyone looking for a cozy little cottage on the beach for a quiet vacation.

The perfect honeymoon getaway

  • 5 of 5

We were a little hesitant to book this property considering the last review was almost two years prior but after communicating with John, the owner, we decided to go ahead and do it and we're so glad we did!

If you are looking for night life and 5 star accommodations then look elsewhere. The house is not fancy and is in a quiet neighborhood but this was perfect for us because we were looking for quiet solitude for our honeymoon. We had the beach to ourselves most of the time and the snorkeling was phenomenal! We saw turtles twice and there were so many fish it was like swimming in a huge salt water aquarium. There were locals on the beach sometimes in the morning or evening. On Sunday there were several teens on the beach so if you don't want to share (much) we recommend you pay attention to the school schedule.

There is air conditioning in the bedrooms which suited us well. There is not a clothes dryer as is listed but there are lines to dry clothing. The appliances in the kitchen appeared to be nearly new. We did not use the dishwasher. Any questions we had were addressed immediately. We did not have Wi-Fi at the beginning due to a system upgrade being completed, but we had Wi-Fi within a couple of days. Eric, the caretaker, met us upon arrival and was always available by cell phone.

Beware of little crabs that will sneak into the entry and stairway at night. There are also cute little lizards. Just remember that this is the tropics and cockroaches are a part of that. We saw 3 during our 11 day stay, one we believe due to leaving something sweet on the counter so that was our fault. One evening we were greeted by a troop of green monkeys in the yard. We tried to get video but they were marginally cooperative. We woke one morning to evidence of a sea turtle coming onshore to lay eggs next to the house.

If you are unsteady on your feet due to other than too many rum punches, you should step carefully along the pathway from the car to the house, especially if it has been raining. We had no problems at all but if you require walking assistance this may not be the ideal place for you.

The north part of the island is close to many sights such as Animal Flower Cave, Hunte's Garden, St. Nicholas Abbey, the wild life reserve and Harrison's Cave. Groceries were nearby but the large superstore (like we have at home) was about 30 minutes away. We found it on the last day.

We look forward to our next stay at Wilmar Cottage!

Perfect Beach, Quiet and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We have done VRBOs both abroad and in the states for many years and have learned that it is about doing research and having the right expectations. The negative review below was posted shortly before we were to arrive at our rental and needless to say, it made us a tad nervous.

Overall, this rental worked perfect for us and it was the beach and water in front of the house and the friendly locals that made it perfect. We swam and snorkeled twice a day everyday and enjoyed greeting and chatting with the locals that showed up every morning and evening to do the same. Besides us, there were no more than 2 or 3 other people on the beach and often we were the only ones. The water is clear and clean with a sandy bottom and we saw great fish and even turtles while snorkeling.

The house is simple with no frills and we ended up enjoying the simpleness of it all. Everything in the house worked and worked well and we were never in need of anything. We cooked about half of our meals at the house and found all the kitchen supplies that we needed. The air conditioners in the bedrooms worked well for cooling and drying the air for sleeping. The beds were comfortable and there were plenty of sheets and towels. The house does need some exterior painting and maintenance, but it did not detract from our experience. After each day of touring around the island, we were always looking forward to coming back to our place to swim and chill.

We would recommend renting a car as it is fun to travel all over the island seeing different sites and areas. It also makes it a bit easier for groceries. During our stay, the beaches down by Bridgetown and the Crane were filled with seaweed and the water had sea lice (stinging larva of jellyfish) which made us appreciate our beach even more!

If you want luxury accommodations or enjoy being with other tourists, this probably isn't the place for you. If you want to experience the real Barbados from a more local perspective, this is a great rental.

Not quite as pictured

  • 1 of 5

The grounds of this villa were very pretty and the caretaker who met us, quite charming. Beyond that, there's little I can say that's overly positive. The pictures posted do not represent the actual house as it is currently. It is substantially more rundown than pictured. The beach is certainly not private either but is rather a very busy place for locals. The bed in the front room had no cover and the sheets were stained. The drapes were stained with mold and the ever present bars on every window made us feel like we were in a prison. Perhaps a reflection of the neighborhood in which this house is located. We witnessed some "nasty" goings on below our bedroom window which really made up our minds to leave.

Our booking was for 3 weeks but we relocated to another part of the island after one week. We communicated with the owner who was "accommodating" to our concerns. I cannot understand the stellar written reviews for this property. Barbados is expensive so maybe to some this represents value. We could not recommend this property without substantial improvements.

Owner's Response: I am very sorry about your disappointing stay. School was out that week so the beach was full of people enjoying their vacation. About the stained curtains they were water damaged when a previous quest left the door open during a heavy downpour. We are having some custom made curtains for next season. We certainly purchase new sheets every season and apologize about our oversight. We offered Mike and Lily a refund that would have been full had we been able to rent to someone else, however we were not and refunded half their unused portion.
