10 Fantastic Nights in Barbados

  • 5 of 5

Anyone looking at this property should know that it’s exactly as the pictures show with no surprises. The house is very well equipped with everything you need to make some fantastic meals should you choose. Massy Grocery Store is about a 12 minute walk away and will have everything you need. Rum is very cheap but if you are a Vodka or Gin drinker get a bottle of each at duty free as they are crazy crazy expensive. Our Group of 4 that turned into a group of 6 for 5 nights when our good friends surprised us with the help of owners David and Sam. Thanks to David, Sam and Sean their driver for making that such a fantastic surprise that we will talk about for many years to come. Our group spent most mornings and evening on the veranda having drinks, listening to music and playing cards only steps away from the ocean. Late morning and early afternoons were spent on the beach that was not crowded at all so it was fantastic. Turtles could be seen every morning and we had some surprise turtle visits during the day as well. I already miss hearing the waves all day and night long. We took in Oistin’s Fish Friday night(15 minute walk) and it was very good and very busy so get there early(Maybe 5:30) to get a good seat. Our only disappointment was that there was no live music there. If you want to buy fresh fish to cook at Turtlebottom Oistin’s is the place every day. We grilled King Fish and it was so tasty. We also took in the Jolly Roger Pirate Ship, Mount Gay Tour and a Catamaran Evening Cruise with Cool Runnings that was a highlight of the trip for sure. The bus is right out the door that will take you to the St Lawrence Gap or into Bridgetown for $1 US and we did both. So many great restaurants in the gap to choose from. In summary the house was everything we dreamed it would be and the location outstanding. David and Sam were fantastic and great at returning emails and answering our/your many questions. Sean who greets you at the airport will be happy to stop at the grocery store before taking your to Turtlebottom. Sean is a gem who has grown up in Barbados and has a wealth of information. Until we meet again Barbados… Cheers Scott, Sandra, Brian, Janine, Keith and Deb.

Beautiful place exactly like the pictures show. Right on the beautiful beach. We were 7 ladies and with the 3 bathrooms that was not a problem. The location is perfect! No need for car. The local beep beeps come right in front of house and you can ride anywhere for $1usd or $2 their currency. There is a market close by in Oistins where you can get food and booze. Our beach was amazing. A couple of locals came by to sell things but were friendly and not aggressive. All the locals we met were friendly and accommodating! Would definitely go back😎

Probably one of the nicest vacation rentals we have stayed in!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home right on a fabulous sand beach. Very well maintained and great location close to Oistens ( easy walk to the fish fry, fresh fish market and grocery store. Easy access to bus and route taxi which will take you just about anywhere on the island for 2 Barbados dollars. Excellent property highly recommended.

We were a group of 4 adults and 4 kids and Turtlebottom was perfect for us. The bedrooms are large and there was space for everyone. We spent most of our time outside on the very large deck and on the beautiful beach. The kitchen was fully stocked and we had everything we needed. There was even a blender! The villa was very clean and all furnishings and decor were top notch. There were even boogie boards and floats available for us to use and a safe too.. There were also board games, books and magazines, but we didn't discover these until our last day.

We were hesitant in booking this villa because the owner did not accept credit cards for payment, but after speaking to him, I sent my payments by cheque and was so happy to see Shaun at the airport when we arrived. From the airport, Shaun dropped the kids and Dads off at the villa and took the Moms to the grocery store to stock up for the week. The large grocery store was less than a 10 minute walk and offered a shuttle back to the villa with your groceries. There is a good selection of restaurant options within walking distance as well. We did not need to rent a car and found the bus stop right outside was just perfect and we used the buses for the entire week. We have rented many vacation villas in Canada and the US and this was one of the very best we have stayed in. We all had a great vacation and the kids are already asking when we can return to Turtlebottom. It was our first time in Barbados, and we all fell in love with the island and can't wait to go back.

Beautiful home with breathtaking views

  • 5 of 5

Our family and friends just came back from Turtlebottom and we already want to plan our next trip! David was so easy to work with and made our arrival smoothe! The pictures don't do the house justice. We were more than pleased with the cleanliness and layout of the home, although most of our time was spent outdoors. The patio is a great size for outdoor dining and relaxing and the beach is steps away. The view was truly incredible! We had a wonderful vacation and our accommodations at Turtlebottom exceeded our expectations!

Guestbook comments from the owner

My wife and I were able to spend two wonderful weeks at Turtle Bottom

this past summer. The house was beautifully decorated in an upscale,

modern yet homey, comfortable style. The back of Turtle Bottom opens

up into a spacious patio and fenced in back yard that overlooks the

pristine Caribbean sea. The beach there is beautiful. We were able to

soak, fish, cast net, and even boogie board at times. We had taken our

3 month old son with us on the trip and found the accommodations to be

convenient, comfortable and safe.

It was fun to be able to go right down the street to the supermarket,

Oistins fish market or Cheffette.

Our two week stay fabulous and I would recommend it to anyone.
