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

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.

Peaceful paradise

  • 5 of 5

We love Barbados and usually stay in Payne’s Bay at The House. This was totally out of our comfort zone, booking a self catering beach house, in an area we hadn’t visited previously.

Arriving at the property I knew instantly it was perfect for us and that we had definitely made the right decision. I loved the sound of the waves on the rocks below, the openness of the property, it’s beautiful front porch and tropical plants, the wooden floors and shutters, ceiling fans and stunning views. If you’re looking for a true Bajan, laid back style holiday this is perfect. You are litterally on the beach! I loved everything about this property it had great character.

The management team were brilliant, extremely helpful and nothing too much trouble. We loved the area too and enjoyed eating lunch next door at Wandas fantastic food to rival The Cliff, but with a more affordable bill $68BDS lunch for two with drinks!

Annabelles for us was like Home ... we’ve already booked to return.

Gorgeous location.

We loved our stay. The house is completely open to the sea which is perfect for snorkeling. Very clean and well equipped. Reeds bay is a beautiful tranquil beach. Nevada could not have been more helpful.

Owner's Response: Very glad you enjoyed your trip to the island, it was a pleasure having you there. Yes, the bay is perfect for snorkelling, its popular with some of the catamaran cruises for that very reason, yet the beach always remains uncrowded, making it an ideal west coast spot getaway for all !

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.
