“The cottage at Buchanan is like staying with family who respect your privacy and who are truly happy you are there.”
Reviewed 18 May 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Ferida and Vic provided us with local pastries, a gps, reservations at a wonderful restaurant, suggestions for touring the island and genuine hospitality. They are friendly and interesting and the cottage was very comfortable and well stocked. If you want to enhance your stay in Barbados, stay with this couple and enjoy their willingness to share their home and their life.

Renting the cottage at Buchanan is like staying with wonderful family. Vic and Ferida treat their guests like close friends!
The premises is well kept, whilst laying on a lounge chair at the pool deck one can listen to the soft waterfall sounds of the adjacent koi pond. A swing set is also available  for kids use. Wifi is adequate.
There is really nothing lacking from the cottage in terms of utensils and linen. Walls are tatsefully decorated with precious art pieces.
The privacy and safety topped the feature list for me.
I would recommend this rental for anyone who prefers the style of vacation rental of travel accommodation.

“Beautiful, Gated Oasis”
Reviewed 24 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

My children (ages 6 and 8) and I arrived at the Cottage at Buchanan after midnight, due to flight delays. Ferida and Victor were so sweet. They greeted us and showed us the cottage without hesitation. The cottage was just as the pictures depicted.

The linens were fresh, the cottage was clean, and it immediately felt like a home for the kids and me. The kitchen, complete with dishes, cutlery, glassware and such, were so convenient for our family. Even though we had an air conditioning unit, we only used it once. The winds swept through the place quite nicely on the evenings. The grounds were manicured and colourful, gated and secure.

Barbados is lovely, and many properties may be available to you. But if you are seeking a private and restful place, close to many beautiful spots... this is it. The children read on the cottage porch while I had my coffee, we cooked many of our meals, and we played in the pool often. We were close to "town" (Bridgetown) so we had access to anything we wanted, and Carlisle Beach was just a five minute drive away. I was able to do laundry (washer and dryer), and even use the home gym, both conveniences on the premises.

We had a car, but that was not completely necessary, as we could have walked to the bus stop in this upscale neighborhood. We had our own parking spot inside the gate, next to the cottage, so carrying a sleeping child to bed was quite easy to do.

Even though it was private at the cottage, we never felt alone as the family lives on the grounds and if needed, our questions about the island could be answered. The hosts were so friendly that each morning we were greeted with waves and smiles.

We had a delightful stay.

se hold this as well; it's the text I have to send for Ferida
==================
My husband and I have stayed at Buchanan, three times, 6 days each time, and loved it.
The cottage is clean and well appointed (including kitchen utensils and dinner ware; fridge; microwave; stove; toaster; hot water) and the bedroom is air-conditioned. There is also a day-bed in the main part of the cottage, and a spacious dining area. Each time we were there, we moved in to a nice welcome of some gratis breakfast supplies.
Buchanan is in the central part of the island, which puts you within easy reach of much of Barbados. It is located on landscaped grounds, behind high walls, in a quiet, residential area, and the owners, Vic and Ferida Fernandes, are congenial hosts, always at hand, as they live in the main house on the spacious property which is security-gated. There is also a swimming pool (not a plunge) for those hot tropical day. We recommend the cottage highly. It is private, comfortable, well furnished, and a great Barbados buy.

“An unexpected tranquil oasis far exceeding my expectations”
Reviewed 7 April 2014 for a stay in February 2014

Stayed at the cottage with a friend and her kids and we enjoyed a truly relaxing weekend.. The beautiful gardens, pool and courtyard were more than we expected. The boys enjoyed chilling in the gazebo and swimming in the pool during the day, and fully equipped outdoor kitchen and eating area was very convenient. The courtyard was quiet and tranquil except for the unexpected arrival of a family of green monkeys, much to the delight of the boys.
The owners are welcoming and generous and we felt at home.
The cottage is clean and well appointed, with all the conveniences of home, which is a bonus for travelling families. Close to shopping and beach. I would definitely stay there again.
