Christ Church Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 1-2)

Sister Cottage to 'Pirate Ryan's Den' VRBO#443814....This Quaint Little Island Cottage is constructed of a combination of Purple Heart Hardwood & Concrete block work. It is painted with cheerful colours inside & outside adding to the island flavour. The wrap around balcony together with the gingerbread trimmings scream..'Welcome to the Caribbean!'

What a Location!! Approximately 200 yards away from the entrance to St. Lawrence Gap....Party Central Area in Barbados, also home to a multitude of Restaurants and Small shops. A five minute walk to Sandy Beach (one of the top beaches on the south).

'Booby Duck* Cottage' is an upstairs apartment, and as such, we would not recommend that folks with knee or hip problems stay here.

We believe the pictures speak for themselves ... We look forward to welcoming you to OUR Island!!

* Will explain name on arrival...Have a Safe Trip!

Quaint place, perfect location, best host!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect little spot, just removed enough to remain quiet, but close enough that you can walk to the excitement. Our host Trevor was very helpful, checking in on us and available to answer questions at any time! He provided a local cell phone in case we got lost or needed to call him for anything. He even ended up mailing a postcard for me and dropping us to the airport! He even answered my international texts prior to our arrival! Such a good soul.

The suite upstairs had all the amenities for us as a couple who wished to explore and take in the tastes and sights around us - able to bring groceries home to cook or take-out food to warm up! The wrap around deck was perfect for the day it rained as we were able to sit outside playing cards and drinking local beer to stay cool.

If we ever come back to The Gap in Barbados, we will be sure to stay here again.

Best Vacation Ever

  • 5 of 5

This was my second time visiting the island, and I traveled with my boyfriend (his first time to Barbados). The Booby Duck was absolutely stunning and fit our vacation needs perfectly! The pictures simply don't do it justice. It is so cozy, and has so many fantastic features. The wrap around balcony is to die for, especially with the bar setup from the kitchen window (our favourite spot), the kitchen is well equipped, we did a lot of cooking! Trevor was more than accommodating while we were there, and made us feel right at home; he is a fantastic host and kept in touch during our week long stay. If you have young legs, everything you need is in walking distance (groceries, bars, restaurants, beaches) and if you want to venture a little further or get places quicker, the bus stop is just outside! I cannot say enough good things about Booby Duck, it is truly a gem of the island. The location is perfect, close to everything but still private and quiet when you'd want it to be, super safe, with friendly neighbours all around - we will most certainly be back next chance we get, only this time we will stay longer! Thank you for an amazing vacation Booby Duck, thank you Trevor, and thank you Barbados!

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This was my second time in Barbados. Traveled with my 9 year old son. We stayed in Booby Duck for 10 nights. Trevor was very responsive every time I had an inquiry prior to arrival and on a couple occasions when I called him during our stay. The location was perfect as we planned to travel the island via bus. As you step to the end of the driveway there was always a bus passing by or just a few steps to the bus stops on either side of the road. We felt safe day and night. The apartment had everything we needed. The rental phone came in very handy and so did the landline. Airport pickup and drop off was such a great help. I will definitely be back to the island of Barbados. It’s just an absolutely magical island with very helpful residents. Trevor thanks again for making my 2nd time in Barbados worry free.

Simply amazing

  • 5 of 5

Booby Duck cottage was our first rental vacation we have ever made, and Trevor could not have made it any easier and more enjoyable for us. Very useful information provided with local contacts for taxis etc, and also a phone to use. Beautifully furnished and so close to the st Lawrence gap, it was simply the best holiday we could have asked for. Our host was amazingly helpful especially when we needed to find medicine for a bad cold one of us had got. It's an ideal location to see Barbados without feeling too much like a tourist. Everyone, literally everyone, is friendly and polite, you feel safe and welcome everywhere. The transport links from Booby Duck are great, as long as you're not shy getting onboard on the ZR buses! We miss Barbados a lot already and would happily recommend this to friends and family. In fact I insist you come and come to Booby Duck. We are looking forward to renting again when we next come. Thank you Trevor thank you booby duck cottage and thank you Barbados!

Our First international Vacation!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was my boyfriend & I first vacation together and we couldn't have chosen a better place or a better owner to rent from. Trevor was very patient with me throughout the whole process from the first time I booked the rental to end very end. Trevor met us at the airport, gave us a quick tour through the St. Lawrence Gap area along with a few recommendations, and provided us with a cellphone to make local calls. Unfortunately, were not able to meet his wife as they were on vacation themselves on another part of the island but we were greeted with Maria's Rum Punch....AWESOME!!!! The Booby Duck looks

exactly like the pictures posted....cute & quaint. There is a public bus stop a few steps away. The unit was equipped with everything to meet your needs: pots/pans, utensils, tabletop gas grill, clean towels/washcloths, beach towels & beach bag in the wardrobe, basic seasonings, mop/broom/buck, stove, microwave, refrigerator, etc. The wrap around balcony is awesome. I could definitely ass more but I'm running out of characters....LOL! We will definitely return.

Thanks again Trevor!

Stayed in March 2014

  • 5 of 5

Best rental stay we have made.

Trevor was gracious enough to pick us up on Saturday night and give us a quick tour so we could get our bearings.

Maria`s rum punch was poured as soon as our bags were dropped and then we went straight to the gap , a short 2-3 minute walk.

Excellent location close to the bars and restaurants of the Gap with easy Bus route access for getting around the island.

The use of a local cell phone and landline while on the island was an excellent bonus.Wireless also good for internet to check out and make reservations for excursions restaurants etc etc.

Trevor was there on Sunday to see us off.

Although on the main road and close to the Gap we slept with no problems.Probably the rum punch along with the hum of the AC and fans kept us in dream land.

Would reccommend this apartment to anyone for location and Trevor and Maria`s great hospitality.

I hope the Brazil airline keeps the service running so we can return again soon.
