Almost perfect

  • 4 of 5

Lovely cottage near two great beaches. Charming rooms with air con and gauze on all windows---essential in Barbados. We were unfortunate in that for our time there building construction was taking place very close to the property. However without that happening the cottage would definitely have had five stars . The pool is perfect .

Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have enjoyed a fabulous two week stay here at Gibbs Glade Cottage. I would highly recommend if your thinking of going to Barbados.

We are a family of five, including our three boys 4, 11 & 13 we found the accommodation perfect for our needs, very clean and well equipped with everything you would need for a self catering holiday.

My husband normally struggles to get a desent nights sleep while away from home but to our delight the the mattress was so comfy.

Our boys all agree the pool was a perfect size and surrounded by a very pretty well maintained garden which gave us the feel of being private without feeling in the middle of nowhere.

We spent most of our days relaxing on the beautiful Gibbs beach which was a few minutes away and very quite with only a handful of people around.

The owners Toby and Karen are also lovely people and went out of there way to accommodate our needs.

The only negative I can find with staying here is going home will be torture.

Many thanks from the Esposito family for a wonderful holiday and we hope to return soon.

A lovely cottage in a very quite and peacefully spot.

Just a stones throw from the beautiful beach.

Couldn't have wished for a better place to stay, we would certainly love to return.

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I absolutely loved staying at Gibbs Glade Cottage. The accommodation was ideal for our party of 5 ladies on their first girly getaway.

The cottage was spotlessly clean which we really appreciated. We enjoyed using all the facilities and loved having breakfast outside. The swimming pool is a perfect size and we used it daily. Even when it rained it didn't matter as it soon passed. The monkeys were funny and although they got the first batch of nice looking bananas on day one, we didn't see them again. The cottage felt like a home from home and we were so relaxed to be there, the housekeeper was fabulous too with lots of local knowledge to share. Booking information and details was accurate and clear, the owners had accurately described the accommodation and we would not hesitate to stay again.

Thank you

  • 4 of 5

Very sadly we leave your lovely cottage tomorrow afternoon. We've really enjoyed our stay - and it's especially sad that we're going home to such awful weather.

You are lucky to have such a home, and thank you for letting us live in it for a short while.

Our wonderful holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from our holiday spent at Gibbs Glade Cottage Barbados and can not recommend it highly enough. The cottage is just perfect if you want to use it as a base to explore or for a secluded break by the pool. Everything you need is in the cottage and it's layout encourages you to spend your holiday out in the sun but becomes practical when you need indoor space. The owners are fantastic and have helped us with all the information we needed as this was our first trip to Barbados. We went for the cricket, sun, relaxation and to discover the way of life on the island and we're not disappointed by any aspect.The cottage feels very remote but just a short walk away is the fantastic Gibbs Beach or Mullins which has a great beach bar and sport on the TV for you sports enthusiasts. We didn't hire a car but the bus service to Bridgetown was easy and cheap and you can walk to Speightstown if you want a larger qty of shops, the local garage is ok for basic items. If you want to explore more of the island then I would recommend a car or get friendly with a taxi driver like we did. Gibbs Cottage is a fantastic place to spend your holiday in Barbados, we are already looking at going back next year for the cricket and we will be booking the cottage again, as it gave us everything we needed along with great owners who made everything so easy.

Location

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Grantley Adams International Airport, Barbados at 33 Kilometres Car: recommended

Coast/Beach:

A short stroll to both Gibbs and Mullins Beaches. Gibbs is beautiful and peaceful, lined with privately owed villas. Mullins is much more lively with a bar and restaurant plus various water sports available.

Travel:

Grantley Adams International Airport, Bridgetown, is about a 40 minute drive away. Taxis at the airport are plentiful and very well organised.

Hiring a car is not essential as the beach is so close and the buses on the coast road are very frequent and inexpensive. However a car gives visitors freedom and flexibility to explore the island and its many exciting sights, huge variety of beaches and extensive restaurants.

Distances:

The Cottage is just under 2.5 miles from Speightstown and 3.7 miles from Holetown. Speightstown is more authentic Barbados with a couple of great casual places for breakfast and lunch plus a couple of very smart places for dinner. Whereas Holetown is far more modern, busier and touristy, with a fantastic new shopping mall, Lime Grove, and a large choice of bars and restaurants. The city of Bridgetown is 10.7 miles distant, full of wonderful architecture, racing, yacht club....

Further Details:

To the North is Speightstown which has everything, from restaurants and bars to a supermarket that gives shoppers a lift home! Plus a library and Post Office. A little further north is Port St Charles with its fabulous yachts, and the Fish Pot restaurant overlooking the waves.

All along the coast are wonderful restaurants. It is easy to eat out every night at a different place each time, never more than a 15 minute drive away.

There are a multitude of activities to choose from across the island from Polo matches taking place on several fields, serving tea and sandwiches to the spectators; to horse racing at the Garrison Savannah; or try diving or a trip in the mini sub.

The beaches around the island are all different, from the calm relaxing waves of the west, to the long rolling waves on the south perfect for body boarding, or the wild waves of the east with its surfing competitions. A different experience each day...

And for every day... there are supermarkets in Speightstown and Holetown, banks with ATM's are in abundance, including in the convenience store by Mullins Beach. The local markets sell fresh fruit and fish caught that day. Coconut water is sold at the side of the road. Local art and craft is all around. And for the less adventurous......there are the imports from Waitrose!
