Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

Little Green Tara.

Little Green Tara is a small but perfectly formed two storey studio in Silversands, close to Surfers Bay on the South East coast. Located in the heart of the surfing community this is an ideal base for those wanting to learn to surf or kite surf but is also a romantic get away and not far from the beautiful Miami swimming beach.

At Little Green Tara you have the best of both worlds, a peaceful, laid back way of life that is not far from the great nightlife of the south coast. Car advisable but not essential.

About The Owner

I live in London but have been coming to Barbados for 25 years so consider both places home. When i am not in one i have to rent the other ; so i have always made sure that the properties are worth sharing and for others to enjoy too . I built LGT in 2005. This area of Barbados is very laid back , its surfers paradise but also a romantic getaway for just two persons. Its still relatively unspoiled with the best beach bar on the door step.

Why The Owner chose Silver Sands

Best of both worlds; far from madding crowd and yet not far from all the South coast night life.

What makes this cottage unique

Far from madding crowd but not isolated. South east tip but not far from South coast night life.

Two very chilled weeks at Little Green Tara

  • 5 of 5

Booked Little Green Tara (LGT) as it is very close to the sea, but more importantly Surfer's Bay bar/restaurant!

I must admit our expectations were not that high, as the cost of LGT was on a par with a studio apartment that we had rented a few years ago.

Melissa responded promptly to my inquiry and maintained excellent communication throughout.

She arranged conveyance from the airport to LGT via the 'lovely' Lisa (who incidentally organised an excellent car hire deal through her brother).

LGT is a quirky, authentic Bajan cottage and we soon fell in love with it.

As I write this review I'm envisaging myself sat on the patio listening to the waves lapping against the shoreline.

Anyway back to the review - LGT is adequately furnished/equipped and with lots of covered outdoor space ideal for me as I prefer shade to sun. My wife is the opposite and spent long periods relaxing in the hammock in the sun.

The upstairs bedroom area is a light airy room with air conditioning (very quiet operation) and a ceiling fan. There is also a TV.

The bed is extremely comfortable and of a good size (Queen) and there are adequate pillows (6).

There is a chest of drawers, wardrobe space and under-bed storage.

The bathroom is separated by a louvred door and has sink, toilet and a large shower enclosure. The hot water is provided via solar power, so you soon learn when to shower and when not to shower!

Downstairs is primarily kitchen space. However there is a small work-station, and a folding table & chairs.

Outside is a wrap-around semi-covered patio area, which is essentially your living space. As already mentioned it has a hammock, Ottoman relaxer chair and a small portable drum BBQ.

Melissa contacted us upon our arrival at LGT to check that everything was alright and to inform us that she was only ever a phone call away. She even took the time to drive down to Silversands to introduce herself in person.

The close proximity to Surfer's Bay was never an issue regarding noise as it closes at 21.00.

In summary a thoroughly enjoyable 2 weeks spent in a lovely property in a beautiful location.

Would we return? Can't wait!

Thanks Melissa and see you soon!

Perfect location, very nice cottage

  • 4 of 5

From the beginning all good, Melissa very helpful and available, wonderful location close to windsurf spots, also 5 minutes away from surfing spots on the south coast, cottage is very nice and comfy, only minus is the apple tv pretty useless if you have no subscription; very nice the beach bar with great food and drinks just few steps away from the cottage!

happy stay and hoping to return to paradise!
