My husband and I spent two weeks in Barbados and stayed in this lovely cottage for the second of our two weeks. We loved waking up each morning to the sounds of the sea. The beach area here is extremely quiet which we loved and we felt extremely safe. Right in front of the house, there was a reef and my husband really enjoyed snorkeling there. On either side, there was a lovely sandy swimming area which I much preferred. Several of the days we walked to the Cobblers Hotel which was virtually right beside us. We also enjoyed a couple of lunches at Mullins Beach Bar and the Fish Pot which were both close by. We will definitely be back
