Willow Cottage and its surrounding garden are set on a quiet road at a breezy spot near the ocean.
It's a seven minute walk (we timed it) to Long Beach, a kite-surfing favourite with locals and visitors alike.
When they are not in the UK this is a home from home for the owners, English/Bajan couple Andrew and Stephen.
The rest of the time this simple but charming holiday cottage welcomes guests from around the world.
Willow Cottage is comfortably furnished. It has high ceilings, a large kitchen, good showers, a spacious terrace for outdoor dining and secure storage for water sports equipment.
A well equipped kitchen, large living/dining room, two bedrooms. The main bedroom has an en-suite bathroom with bathtub, shower and toilet. The second bathroom has a shower and toilet.
Bedrooms have fans and all beds have mosquito nets - but in this breezy location they aren't often needed.
There is a terrace for outdoor dining, garden, shaded parking area, laundry/storage room.
Yoga mats and some free weights are available if you want to stick to your exercise regime.
A lightweight Trek hybrid bike is kept at Willow Cottage for rental to guests.
If you walk the one-mile length of Long Beach, you may see kiters on the water but no more than three people and two dogs on the sand. Almost your private beach!
Shop at our two nearby, late-opening convenience stores (Mike's Mini-Mart and Buffy's Bar).
Swim at Long Beach only if you are a strong swimmer and confident in the surf. If not we know some sheltered spots not far away.
Interaction with guests
The owners won't be here during your stay but their good friend Claudia is always available with advice on things to do and places to go.
Bi-lingual in German and English, Claudia will deal swiftly with any problems you encounter.
Other things to note
We can order a taxi to meet you at the airport.
A rental car can be delivered to the house.
A well maintained, lightweight Trek hybrid bicycle is kept at the house for rental at 50 USD a week.
No smoking inside the house but there is plenty of outside space for smokers.
Surfboards and kiting equipment must be washed outside and stored in the lockable store room. Not in the house please!
Our towels must not be taken to the beach. As we do not provide beach towels please bring your own.
