Very pretty interior designer´s house 100 yds to Freights bay - best beginner surfing spot in Barbados and close to Miami beach. A veranda surrounds the house overlooking the large tropical garden where a family of monkeys visit each morning!
The house is built in a very pretty Colonial style and made of Greenheart tropical hardwood. It has polished wooden floors, ceiling fans in every room and a lovely large veranda overlooking the private garden which keeps the house cool on the hottest days.
The short walk to the beach (100yds) means the house is perfect for families with children as they can walk to the beach in a minute or two. If you get up early enough you can sit on the terrace and watch a small family of monkeys who visit the garden early each morning in the hope of finding a gifted banana or mango. .

Interaction with guests
We live in England most of the time so guests will spend time with Margaret our manager who is local Barbadian who enjoys meeting our visitors and is a font of knowledge about the island!
Other things to note
AC is charged separately as many people prefer using the ceiling fans. Each unit $10 per day or all three rooms $25 US per day.
Hopefully guests will love Driftwood as much as we do and treat it with care and respect. It is a beautiful large Caribbean wooden house, smoking only on the veranda.

I am outgoing friendly and caring. I love to travel and meet people and spent a great part of my life (before I got married and had children!) travelling all over the world. I think airbnb´s site is great because staying with people who know and care about the area they live in is a fabulous way to get to know a new place. My homes are often full of lovely things but first and foremost they are comfortable and designed for fun, relaxing and sharing with family and friends.
