My husband and I along with our 3 daughters are heading back to Barbados for our third year in a row. The past 2 years we stayed near Rockley Beach area (last year was The Coral Mist). This time we are looking for a rental home or villa and we think we have hit the jackpot. This place we found is beautiful, it has a pool and a short path to the beach - BUT - my husband thinks it is too far north and away from civilization. The owner of this house said you could walk to The Fish Pot, and that Port St Charles is very close - it's about a 1/2 mile to a mile to Speightstown. I have no reservations about staying at this house, but my husbands main one is being so far away from everything. Is this a good area ?? We know if we want to take the girls to the aquarium or the caves - we will have to drive a good distance - but on past trips we just get in the car and go - all over the island - everywhere. But this time - we want to have more 'relaxing' days by the pool or on the beach with the girls - but still take enough side trips to show them this amazing and beautiful island.
Any input would be greatly appreciated.
Oh - and 1 more thing - we are staying 9 nights and the cost is around $2600 - we are assuming this price is so cheap due to the location of the house (not in The Gap or right on the Golden Coast) - and we do know that we are traveling in the last few weeks of the summer pricing.
