We had the most wonderful time at Farther Away. Christine and David have a fantastic property. They are great a host. The view is unbeatable over the ocean. We had our 2 children with us and it was so nice for them to to have there own room. The deck is huge and the kids loved the hammock. The breeze that runs through the house is wonderful. Christine and David keep the house sooo nice. David's Rum punch is top notch!!! Thanks for the recipe :). David was so nice to meet us at the airport and take is by the grocery store before we got to the house. I would suggest renting a car and exploring the island, so much to see in beautiful Barbados. Thanks again Christine and David. I would definitely book again!!!

Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed in Barbados countless times, but never on the East Coast. I was super excited to stay at Farther Away!

Everything from the booking to meeting Christine at the house for the keys was effortless. From the first correspondence to the check up phone call at the house, Christine just makes you feel at home.

The house has everything and anything, then some more! It's the little things that Christine and her husband keep at the house that you very much appreciate; all the different spices in the kitchen, the padding for the seats outside, the laundry facilities, I could go on and on.

The house is very private and secluded which was nice for my Husband and I. Waking up in the morning and enjoying your coffee and enjoying the view of the Caribbean Sea is breathtaking and I wish I was there right now.

I would not hesitate to book Farther Away again!

Special!

  • 5 of 5

We we so glad we included Farther Away in our visit. We stayed on the west side also, it is fun in a different way but the unspoiled beauty here is wonderful. The view, the breeze, the decor, a visit from monkeys, and the attentiveness of the host are all amazing.

"Lord's wallet"

  • 5 of 5

We had really a great vacation in Farther Away. We felt like hiding from the world - nicely tucked away in a peaceful spot. If people are safe and comfortable we have a saying in our country: "They are in Lord's wallet". :-) That's what that house is - a truly lovely place, colorful and happy house with fantastic views - and wonderful owners. Christine and David took good care of us, helped with car rental and gave us great tips were to go. Children loved the sea turtles! Would highly recommend the house for everyone seeking for a peaceful spot away from it all. Rental car was necessary to get around.

Wonderful Vacation in an Amazing Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed at Farther Away together with another couple to celebrate my 30th birthday and christmas. We had an amazing time in this beautiful cottage and would recommend it to everyone who is traveling to Barbados looking for a place away from the tourist crowd.

The cottage is nicely placed on a cliff overlooking skeetes bay. The highlight for us was the huge outside deck where we spent almost all our time. The house is very well equipped, especially the kitchen (you would find anything you need and even more). Everything is perfectly clean and maintained - just a place you don't want to leave anymore. :)

Also the owners of the house were the perfect hosts and assisted us with everything before and during our travels: they did grocery shopping for us, so we would have something to eat when we arrived late from the airport, they would check in on us regularly to see if everything was okay, they would come by the house and refill the gas for the BBQ and they would pick us up and drop us in the airport....

There is really nothing that could have been better and we truly hope to be able to come back one day!

Absolutely Stunning!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! Words can't truly express how much we enjoyed staying at Farther Away! It's obvious Dave and Christine are meticulous owners as the condo is beautifully kept and maintained.

We stayed in three different places on our three weeks in Barbados and this one takes the prize as our favorite. Overlooking Skeetes Bay and the East Point Lighthouse you take in beautiful views of the Atlantic Ocean and it's strength. Watching the moon rise over the Atlantic was amazing at night.

The condo is well appointed and truly away from it all. Don't stay here if you want the hustle and bustle of tourist attractions and such; all of these are within driving distance. Stay here to soak up the east coast life style!

Expect gorgeous views, a well maintained property, a beautiful deck overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, visits from Green Monkeys and some of the nicest owners we've ever met.

Thank you so much David and Christine (especially for the homemade rum punch greeting)! We will return here when we come back to Barbados!

Owner's Response: We are always very happy to hear that our guests have enjoyed their stay at our property. We do try to ensure that the house is clean and in good condition as our guests do appreciate it, along of course with the real 'Bajan' rumpunch on arrival, which they appreciate even more!
