Why Mr. Charles McClean chose St. Peter

This was our childhood home and is now run as a family-oriented cottage by my sister and I.

What makes this cottage unique

Our cottage is quite close to the sea, and it is not usual to sit in the porch at hear the crashing waves especially late at night.

The neighborhood is quiet and friendly.

The gentle breeze on the porch and relaxation area is simply divine! .

wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic first experience of Barbados. We had a weeks stay at the wonderful Calmar cottage, with our teenage children. The cottage was very clean and well equipped, with a garden that you could not fault for facilities. the pool was really enjoyable, and made it hard to leave the cottage even for the beautiful beaches. we really enjoyed the spa in the evenings; I thought it would be too hot to enjoy, but it was perfect for evenings, with the lights and garden set-up as a back drop. the outside kitchen area made barbeques very easy and convenient also.

The hospitality we received from Charles was the best we have ever come across. he collected us from the airport and dropped us back off at the end (complimentary), provided us with a wonderful supper on arrival when we were tired, and also an excellent welcome pack of beautiful cakes, drinks, fruit etc. he was also on hand if we had any questions, and to help when we managed to lock ourselves out of the cottage (tip: use the hook on the back door so it doesn't shut in the breeze!!). Nothing was too much trouble, and we felt that we could ask anything.

we really enjoyed the food on the island, and would really recommend Bombas (5 minutes walk from the cottage) , The Lone Star (bit more expensive but worth it), and Fish Pot (Speightstown). For exploring, it is useful to hire a car for part of the stay. For visiting, we would recommend the Animal Flower Cave, Mullins Bay, Bottom Bay. if you go to Harrisons cave, you need to wear shoes that cover your feet (no sandals/flip flops) if you want to do the walking tour, it is also at fixed times only so check the website first.

All in, we had a fantastic week, thoroughly enjoyed Mullins Bay and Mullins bar. Many thanks to Charles and Maxine.

We had a wonderful time at the cottage. Charles was very helpful and kind. The house had everything we needed. It was comfortable and clean. The kids really enjoyed the pool and hot tub. It was close to the beach and places to eat.

Perfect Stay

  • 5 of 5

We have just come home from a two week stay at Calmar Cottage over Christmas and New Year. It was bliss. The pool was lovely and the hot-tub a bonus we had not expected. We rented a car and made our own way to the proper because we had been to the island before and knew our way. We had a warm welcome, drinks in the fridge, plus some beautiful cakes, fruit and a bottle of wine. They had also put up a fantastic christmas tree decorated with sea themed decorations. Under the tree was a gift for each of us. Very thoughtful. Maxine and Charles could not have done more to make our stay easier. Helping us book turtle trips and advice on the food truck (parks at the end of the road with some of the best food we had all trip) were particularly useful. If we wanted anything we just had to ask. The location is great a few minutes walk to the beach. The petrol station stocks emergency supplies and there are one or two places to eat and drink within a few minutes walk. The buses are easy if you want to go up to one of the nearby towns for more choice. We loved meeting Thor, the dog, plus his chums. They were so quite and well behaved as well as being adorable softies. The house is very well cared for and was cleaned every other day (allowing for festive holidays). The kitchen had all the equipment we needed and the BBQ was a real bonus and we eat out on the patio at least half the time. The beds are very comfy and the air conditioning meant we all slept very well. The TV is HUGE. You need to remember the DVD player is not compatible with UK discs, we had our favourite christmas movie (Elf) on a US version so we were fine. Our flight home was not until the evening and as there were no guests that night we could leave our bags and use the outside shower to clean up after a day on the beach, this enabled us to get the very most out of our time and was very much appreciated. I only wish we knew what we were up to next Christmas, I would book again in an instant.

What a great stress free trip

  • 5 of 5

Wow! what a great trip, a great stay and a great stress free time in Barbados. My family, including a 2 1/2 year old and a 22 year old, my husband and I had a fantastic time much due to the fact that Charles and his sister were so accommodating. The complimentary airport transportation was great for arriving and departing with no worries. they had some snacks in the house already when we got there and offered to take us to the grocery store for the first "stock up" as we hadn't planned on renting a car for a few days. Charles had great recommendation on truly "local" things to do, not just popular tourist things, but other things that he loves about the island. The property was perfect for our family, everyone had their own room, with their own TVs and ACs and the pool was a highlight every day. Great for lounging before/after the beach and after dinner on the patio. The beds and bathrooms were very nice and comfortable and the TV in the main room was HUGE! Charles helped us hire a car for a few days and directed us to see some great sights off the beaten path. he checked in with us often to make sure things were ok and answer any questions. A great resource we didn't expect.

we were worried about how far this might be from the beach and 'nightlife/ activities' but it was less than a 5 minute walk to a beautiful beach where we could rent jet skis, book tours, hang on the beach or eat at one of 2 nearby restaurants. Great location - very easy- with all the conveniences of a hotel only a fraction of the price. there is a convenience store on the way to the beach to pick up drinks, ice and ice cream when the feeling should arise.

we have traveled to many Caribbean locations and have rented many different houses. Charles and his sister made this a special, personalized experience for us, the location was great to get to the beach and still have our own pool and the house was a comfortable place to come home to each night. I would recommend this with no hesitation...

Would Definitely Stay at This Property Again

  • 4 of 5

Me and my family of 4 enjoyed staying at this property from 12 July 2014-22 July 2014. The owner of the property provided us with complimentary taxi service from the airport upon our arrival and departure. The taxi/van was big enough to accommodate my family and all of our luggage (approximately 7 large bags). I appreciate that the owner offered to order my family food, and asked if we had any special request for beverages,etc, since our flight arrived very late on 11 July. The property was clean and well kept. Cleaning services were provided every two days during our stay (provided a thorough cleaning). The property offers a computer connected to the internet and wi-fi free of charge. The property was stocked with dishes, pots/pans, etc to allow guests to cook if we so desired. A hot water maker is available as well as a coffee pot (I do wish they had a better coffee pot though as the one provided was old and stained....we Americans love our coffee). Air conditioning is providing in each bedroom. Cable television is provided in each bedroom, as well as living area. Bath towels, hand towels, and beach towels are provided. However, if you desire wash clothes you will need to bring your own. A washing machine is available for guest use. A clothes line is available to hang wet clothes. It had been a long time since I hung clothes on the line, but found it drys clothes and towels much faster than any dryer actually, due to the warm air and ocean breeze.The patio is very relaxing, and the property has a pool which lights up and provides a cozy and relaxing atmosphere. The property is a 3 minute walk from the Beach, as well as the corner gas station/convenience store. It is also minutes away from the bus stops. The owner stays next door to this property and he checked on us daily. He was a good source of information regarding the local area. He was very friendly and personable. I would have to say customer service was excellent. I would recommend the property to a friend/relative.
