A fantastic place to stay. We had four nights & it is a little piece of heaven. We stayed in Fare 3 in absolute luxury. Very comfortable bed, great showers & a few metres to the beach. Our meals were top quality prepared by our lovely Ni-van cooks trained by Julie. Calvin drove us to the resort & dropped us...

This is a small boutique resort with a superb absolute beachfront location. My wife and I stayed in a very comfortable and private traditional faré which had a spacious ensuite plus an outdoor lounge area set in a luxuriant garden setting with plunge pool. We loved meeting some friendly local people as well as the other couples staying at the...

This was our second trip to Barrier Beach House - we stayed 7 nights and, again, everything was just perfect. To Calvin & Julie and all the staff, thank you for making our stay extremely relaxing. We stayed in fare 1, which is approx 12 paces from the water's edge - 20 at low tide. The water is crystal clear...

A lovely small resort on a picturesque beach with magnificent old trees leaning into the bay. Water was warm and very safe for swimming with a pretty reef for snorkelling. Our garden fare was private and spacious with its own plunge pool, ceiling fans and timber louvres created a tropical ambience. Our hosts Julie and Calvin were charming and extremely...

My stay at Barrier Beach House turned out to be a delight. Santo is a beautiful tropical island and the Beach house is situated behind a reef (hence it's name), which allows patrons to swim, snorkel, canoe, etc., in safe warm waters. The accommodation is comfortable, with good amenities, comfortable king size beds, fan or air conditioning for cooling -...

Perfect balance of quiet, relaxation, location and attention. We couldn't fault the accommodation - we had a garden fare which was very comfortable and quiet. The meals which we had almost all at Barrier were lovely and we loved the relaxed nature of the place in general. The hosts are attentive without being in your face and greet everyone at...
