3 Bedroom House With Beachfront Location
average rating of 4.5 based on 18 reviews

Great location with amazing views. A fantastic experience!

  • 5 of 5

We took our 3 grandchildren, 4, 7 and 9 and had a great stress free holiday. Good service from the island team who fixed up taxi's and food for us and really made us all feel at home. What really makes this house work is it's location and stunning open aspect outlook. Good access to the west coast with all it's amenities and interests. Eating locally caught fix from the market and cooking up a simple dinner whilst enjoying the view was all part of this get away holiday that all the party enjoyed. This was our first time in Barbados and we were overwhelmed by how friendly and helpful everyone was. Overall the house provided the perfect base and backdrop on which to experience Barbados.

Amazing location such a shame it was impossible to fully enjoy the experience

  • 1 of 5

The property is very open and exposed to the elements and not much has been done to make the house secure, meaning we needed to be very careful with our belongings when we went out. The house alarm system is disabled, most likely due to the fact that the house is so open birds or stray cats can enter and where on the premises during our stay and would set an alarm off. The safe is very small and none of the rooms are sufficiently secure to feel confident that even your clothes would still be there when going out. Especially as it would be very easy to enter the house via the shutters that surround the house. It was also a worry when sleeping (or trying to sleep) at night because the sea was so loud you would not hear an intruder breaking in.

We also were eaten by bugs throughout the night and had no means of protecting ourselves the plugs only worked if you left the lights on so not able to plug in a bug deterrent. Because of the ceiling fans there was no way to have mosquito nets either. The bedrooms as throughout the house does not have glass windows or shutters that fully close, just slatted shutters so the sea at high tide registered at over 75.4 decibels from the constant pounding of the waves against the rocks below the house. We have not been able to sleep throughout the night in two of the bedrooms the third room at the back gave some protection from the noise. By day 5 we were all left exhausted and ready for home.

We booked 8 days and feel the house is really only suitable as a 2 day stop over experience as it is a stunning spot with huge potential and l believe it is in a run down and unsecure state because it is going to have major building work in the near future. Which will be great for future guests.

As it stands today there is a lot of manually opening and shutting of these very heavy window fittings to get the view and they need closing and locking before you go out. Whilst charming and quaint for the first few days it soon becomes a chore. I do not think the reality of staying at this property is properly addressed in the description.

We stayed at Annabelles for 14 nights, great location and for us, a couple of 2,it was perfect

for our stay. Good facilities, excellent accommodation, good w-fi connection, no issues wit the property. Only disappointment were the organisation aspects of our booking,

nobody available on arrival, a little harrowing, when standing outside the property at 9.00pm in the dark and no life evident. Luckily people in the neighbourhood rallied around and

we finally located the n site manage, who wasn't sure when we were scheduled to arrive. Finally got access at 1100pm, Manager couldn't apologise any more, she was

embarrassed. Maid turned up 2 days late as she too didn't have any ideas we were even in the property!! However once all these issues were resolved, we couldn't fault the property andthe service thereafter. Would certainly recommend staying there, but one thing the property needs is AC, fans on there own doesn't cool the property down enough at night, therefore itwas tough going trying to sleep.

Classic Barbados Beach House

  • 5 of 5

This property could not be any closer to the ocean! The house is an older house with so much charm and character. The openness of the house is what really impressed us. The interior has a Caribbean cottage feel with the beautiful wood ceilings and bright colors. Having the ability to open all of the shutters and let the breeze flow through the house kept it very nice temperature wise. All three bedrooms were a good size and both bathrooms were quite large. The kitchen facilities were all we really needed. The only thing we were missing was a blender and some speakers to plug our music into. Having a washer and dryer on site was also very handy. We had come from another island with no laundry facilities so we ended up making good use of it. The side deck has really comfortable sun loungers with cushions. The little plunge pool was so refreshing after being in the hot sun. You are able to walk down the front steps and access the sea. We wore water shoes when we did this as there are sea urchins in the reef. I would sit on the steps every morning with my tea and watch the fisherman with their nets and wait for the sun to rise. This is an older home and being right on the water there is quite a bit of wear and tear on parts of the house but in general it is really well kept. I read a comment that the ocean was very loud and that certainly can be the case depending on where the tide is at but it beats a loud road or nightclub any day. The logistics of finding it proved a little difficult as we arrived in the dark but that couldn't be avoided. You are very close to two small beautiful beaches and just a little north is Mullins Beach Bar which has chairs to rent and a fantastic restaurant. The local bus stop is right out the drive way from the house so getting to Holetown or Speightstown was super easy. Can't say enough about this house. If your looking for super duper fancy this may not be the best match but if you are looking for a clean, classic Caribbean cottage this hits the mark. Andrew and Veronica were great to deal with. Veronica was there to meet us upon arrival and departure. I can say this for sure, if we return to Barbados we would not hesitate renting this wonderful property again.

Fantastic position

  • 4 of 5

Wonderful stay, walking distance of the fish market, Mullins Bar and De Outback. Very spacious and comfortable accommodation though does need a bit of updating and the lighting is not good enough for reading. Problem in 2 of the bedrooms, wall plugs are operated by main light switch so could not have anti mosquito diffuser on at night so got very bitten!

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed your stay. The location of Annabelles is key on the West Coast ! We already have plans for 'upgrade' in 2017. Some sockets do run from the main light switch as there are specialist ceiling fans in all the rooms (without lighting) suitable for use by the sea with lighting sockets for bedside lamps connected. There are other sockets that do work all the time independently as well. We will endeavour to explain this to future guests so they are aware.

About Andrew Malyon

Annabelles has been family owned now for over 20 years, and was rebuilt from the ground up in 1999. Being a traditional wooden Barbadian house in the sea it requires regular upkeep. Working and living predominantly in Singapore means we don't get to visit as much as we would like to, so we have put together a team of people to help you while you are there.

We still hold lots of amazing memories from years gone by with friends and family, and decided in 2012 to open up the house to others, and we hope you enjoy Annabelles as much as we have over the years!!

Andrew Malyon purchased this house in 1992
