Barbados Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 double bedrooms, 1 bathroom, open plan cottage, verandah with sea views

Turtle Cottage is a delightful holiday home set high on a cliff top with breath taking views of the rugged coast, beautiful ocean and dramatic reef. Built in a traditional Bajan style but with an open plan concept, the cottage features a sea facing verandah where you can enjoy an outdoor living experience, lying in a hammock and relaxing.

A luxuriant tropical garden surrounds the cottage which is walled and secure. A gate leads to an attractive pool and gazebo set amongst flowers, shrubs and sculptures overlooking the sea.

The cottage has original artwork, sculptures, and is well equipped with appliances, efficient BBQ and comfortable furniture.

There is also cable TV, DVD, CD player and iPod dock, telephone and WiFi.

The owner can arrange car hire and will meet you at the airport.

Perfect spot

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed with Pat at Turtle Cottage the first week in December of 2015. It was absolutely perfect for us: isolated, private, not too far from great beaches, quiet, beautiful, fully equipped to cook and go to the beach, amazingly decorated and unique. The pool was beautiful and located between the cottage and her house just a few steps away. Pat was a great host with great local knowledge. Our flight got in late and I had trouble with my bag, but Pat waited for us for at least an hour until everything was figured out to drive us home and got us some things to tide us over until our bags came. We enjoyed our time immensely and absolutely LOVED the house and it's location and our host. Can't wait to come back.

Advice, you need a car, avoid driving at night, go to the Oisten's fish fry, Bridgtown is a busy and dirty, Crane beach is very touristy.

Just fantastic

  • 5 of 5

This was such a fantastic holiday rental. I cannot recommend it enough and will return. The cottage is utterly delightful set in the most lovely garden overlooking the sea. Everything about the cottage is charming and authentic. Pat is so helpful advising on local things of interest, restaurants and places to visit. I slept well in the cottage, eat well and felt completely rested. I will be telling friends to visit. If you want somewhere to stay that is relaxing, beautiful, well positioned and well appointed this is the place for you. Thank you Pat for a fantastic two weeks. I will return.

Holiday in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We were lucky enough to stay at Turtle cottage for 2 weeks and it completely exceeded all of our expectations. The property and location are just as stunning and idyllic as they look, and we can't speak highly enough of Pat. She couldn't have been more helpful with local knowledge and advice, and despite being our first time in Barbados, she helped make us feel like knowledgeable travellers instead of bungling tourists.

We have have recommended this property to all of our friends and family - and to anyone else who would listen. Thanks again, Pat.

Photos don't do justice ...and away from the crowd

  • 5 of 5

Almost speechless when I woke up in the morning and went onto the balcony and took in the view of the sea and garden, the smell of the sea, the sound of the ocean, the cottage and garden is a sensory heaven. I wanted a few days "switch off" from phones and TV and laptops and other people and I found all of these in spades. I'm still recovering from the shock of leaving and arriving back here. If you want to get away from all of the crap of life in the rat race then get over here, you don't need a therapist any more, just sit on the deck, face the sea and sky and feel the breeze and relax and relax. It's taken me this long to write ths but time flies back on the hamster wheel!

We spent the most idyllic week at Turtle Cottage with our toddler son. What a wonderful, tranquil spot, and such stunning views. Not many things can beat breakfast on a sunny veranda listening to the waves below and watching the resident turtles waking up. Thank you Pat for your warm and natural hospitality - you and the cottage both come HIGHLY recommended.

This place is absolutely incredible. We had a group of 4 people (late 20's/early 30's) staying here, and it was perfect. Amazing views, super clean, and everything you need to feel at home. Pat, you were absolutely the best host we could have hoped for. Your endless tips and directions were greatly appreciated! You made us feel welcome and comfortable within seconds of arriving. The cottage is close to everything you need (which for us was basically food, beer and rum) The best part for me was the tortoises that live on the property. What a cool experience to be able to hang out in paradise with a bunch of friendly tortoises!! Like nothing I have ever experienced before. Super clean pool and deck that we took full advantage of! There is plenty of cookware, towels, games, etc. I cannot say enough positive things about this place. Pat also fully arranged a catamaran ride for us. That was a day I will never forget. Thank you so much Pat for your generosity. We will most definitely return... Hopefully as soon as possible!
