Fantastic sea views

  • 5 of 5

West point is a lovely seaside cottage set in a great location. We spent 8 relaxing days, enjoying the superb sea views. The house is very well maintained and has everything required, could not fault it. Set on beautiful and bustling Mullins beach, where there is something for everyone from a range of water sports and live music , good food and the strongest rum punch available from the beach bar. Shops and a choice of restaurants are all near by, we have already booked for next year. What more can I say!

Paradise

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a relaxing holiday in a wonderful location this property ticks every box. Right on the beach with Speighstown within easy walking distance and on a regular bus route.

It was lovely to be greeted by Anne on our arrival who introduced us to Joanne who was an absolute star in looking after us whilst during our stay.

Would we return ? Most certainly

Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

This holiday home is wonderful! It is in the most fantastic location, right on one of the best beaches of Barbados. It is also within easy access of everything you could possibly need - a short walk to Speightstown or bus to holetown and, as previous reviewer mentioned, there is also a 24hr garage with convenience store round the corner, which was brilliant for stocking up on essentials.

The house itself is lovely, light and airy. The master bedroom suite is huge, with a terrace and views right out over the caribbean sea. The second bedroom is smaller, but still a good double bedroom, with it's own en suite bathroom too.

The downstairs terraces are lovely spots to sit out and get both sun and shade, which was great for us as we were there with a small baby. It was wonderful to be able to lie out in the shady privacy of our terrace and just pop out to the beach for a quick swim when we needed to cool down.. Or "needed" a pina colada from the beach bar!

The house is beautifully maintained and cleaned by Joanna, the daily maid. She was really lovely to have around and I would definitely recommend asking her to cook for you - her gravy is DELICIOUS!

The owners, Anne and Walter, were so lovely to communicate with in advance of our arrival as well as during our stay. Thank you so much for everything.

I cannot recommend this home enough - we certainly want to return next year!

It means so much to us that you had a great holiday and were happy and comfortable in the house. Also that you enjoyed Joanna's cooking!! I must add that you were fantastic guests; easy to please and to get along with. I hope that you, Robert and Viv have settled down again in your London home and that your Mum and David are both well. Looking forward to your next visit and thank you again for taking the time to write. Best wishes Anne and Walter

Excellent accommodation

  • 5 of 5

Lovely warm welcome by the owners Ann and Walter on arrival. The cottage is lovely and in an excellent position. Next to beach and almost opposite the local garage which has an adjoining shop. There is a bus stop nearby and these buses are great for getting around Barbados

Joanne who looks after the cottage is a delightful person warm friendly so easy to get along with. Also she is a wonderful chef should you want har to cook for you.

The accommodation has everything you need and more I could not fault it at all. Wonderful views out to sea and along the coast.

Would love to return soon

Excellent all round
