We had a wonderful time at Turtle Cottage, and could not recommend it more. There is ample space for 2 adults and 2 children (ages 10 and 6 years), with all the amenities one would want.
The views are spectacular, and the swimming pool absolutely wonderful.
Pat was a super host, and all of her recommendations were things to do and see on the island were fantastic. She made us feel very much at home, and even booked restaurants for us and catamaran trips, which we very much enjoyed.
We hope to come back soon!
Stop Looking and Stay Here
What an unbelievable spot this is. Stayed here with our two young boys. The pictures do not do the view and cottage justice. We drove all over the island and did not see a better place than Pat's Cottage. You will need to rent a car, but that is easy to do with Pat's help. Cannot recommend it enough. Stop searching and book it now.
Fantastic place to stay with stunning views
We stayed at Turtle cottage for 2 weeks everything about the cottage is charming and authentic We took in the views of the sea and the garden the sound of the ocean was amazing to wake up to every morning on the balcony. Within the garden, we had seen over 11 tortoises just wandering around the stunning garden grounds which was just beautiful. Also, we eaten well and felt completely rested just what was needed. Pat is an amazing lady and was so helpful advising us on local things of interest, restaurants and places to visit she had even arranged a catamaran boat trip for us which was an amazing experience and not to be missed. If you want somewhere to stay this place offers relaxing with beautiful views then look no further this is truly beautiful place to stay. We have recommended this property to all our friends and family. Thank you Pat, for making our holiday an amazing and memorable experience for us. We will hopefully returning back again this year 2017 see you soon Pat?
Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review and I am pleased you enjoyed your holiday at my cottage.You were great guests and very positive about your time here,I do hope you will come again!! PAT
Perfect escape in St Philip
We recently traveled to Barbados to escape New York City and booked turtle cottage, having no experience with the island at all.
What a great choice we made. Pat could not have been a more accommodating host, giving plenty of great advice for or time in Barbados. She even welcomed us at 4am when our flight arrived and took us to the grocery store as our car didn't arrive until later in the morning. Pat also made great recommendations for things to do on the island, including arranging a catamaran cruise for us.
As for the cottage itself, the photos on the internet can't accurately depict how breathtaking the views are. The cottage was beautifully decorated, comfortable and clean with every appliance and supply you could need for a great vacation, including plenty of fans to keep things breezy at night.
The pool was a short walk through the immaculate garden and was a lovely way to cool off in the warm Bajan sun. The turtles were also quite a treat to spot in the late afternoon.
Getting to the house from the main road was simple (despite being a New Yorker who hasn't driven in years, much less on the left side of the road) and less than 15 minutes from the airport. The grocery store, Emerald City is a 5-7 minute drive and Foul Bay Beach (incredible for running, not good for swimming) is 2 minutes by car and 5 on foot.
Must see: St Nicholas Abbey, Oistins Fish Fry, Animal Flower Caves, East coast road.
Thanks again, Pat for an incredible vacation! If we return to Barbados, we definitely hope to stay with you again!
Thankyou so much for a great review! Iam so pleased you had such a good trip here and I was able to help with that.I would be delighted if you decide to come back,you left the cottage in an immaculate condition!!!
Cottage on a cliff
We just returned to Manhattan after spending 2 weeks at Turtle cottage. We went to Barbados to surf, at least my husband and 2 boys, ages 15 and 19 did:) Zed's surf shop is your best option . Turtle cottage is a pretty Bajan style cottage, painted in bright cheerful colors. The outdoor decks, with views of the ocean were it's best feature. Just looking at the view was amazing. There are 16 turtles roaming about, and it was fun to see/feed them. The pool is next to Pat's house, which is a short walk through the garden. We felt very safe, and the location is quiet. You need a car to get anywhere...The crane beach is 5 minutes away, and Bottom Bay is a 10 minute drive. Pat arranged a Catamaran trip for us our second week, and that was excellent. She even provided a birthday cake for my son's 20th. Thank-you Pat:) If you want to eat out I recommend Lone Star(west coast) Buzzo, or Champers.The outdoor restaurant by the pools at the Crane is a great treat for lunch. The closest grocery store id Emerald City. We spent a lot of time at Pebble Beach. You can rent kayaks and row out to 2 shipwrecks to snorkel. We love Barbados! The weather is perfect, the locals are friendly, and the food is delicious.
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.
Ocean City is a small community in the Parish of St. Philip on the south east coast of the Island, about 10 minutes from the Airport. There are many unspoiled beaches nearby, the nearest being Foul Bay, about 5 minutes drive. We are also close to the world famous Crane Hotel with all it's facilities which can be used.
Nearby is a supermarket, garage, several churches and bars. The Barbados Golf Club is 10 minutes away and there are many restaurants and nightclubs St. Lawrence Gap.
Golf: Barbados Golf Club is 10 minutes away.
