We're so over staying in big, international chain resorts...was really hoping Barrier Beach House would be a great place to unwind and retreat. Our expectations were exceeded in every way. We stayed 10 nights - the longest we have stayed in one place in a very long time. Could easily have stayed for the rest of our lives. Believe us we did ask!
It was so refreshing to be so warmly and genuinely welcomed. The setting is so beautiful - from the native tree to the air filled with bird song, and ohh.my lord..the stunning white sandy beach and tropical turquoise sea. The best beach we have swum in...safe, warm, private and inviting and only a few steps from our fare. And we can lay claim to having sampled some of the world's best spots - including Rio de Janerio, the Bahamas, Greek Islands, Fiji Islands etc.
Barrier Beach House is a wonderful blend of upmarket elegance, beautiful design and "homeliness" - just like having our own architecturally designed beach house with perks.
We had some really memorable nights with Shendall and Shane, and fellow guests. They always went the extra mile especially on my birthday - making me so happy:)
The fare was divine - and believe me, we are not always easy to please! It was private, spacious and beautifully designed. Loved being able to leave the louvers open and gaze at the sea night and day, day and night.
Lights out at 10pm along the whole beach was cool - no wild partying and excessive noise like other resorts we have stayed at.
The food was fantastic. Shane cooks a mean barbecue and Shendall served amazing dishes. Together they cooked the best eye fillet we have ever enjoyed. We even had a guest chef come in and prepare freshly caught Mahi Mahi - the most beautiful dish you can imagine and great fun had by all,
The local staff were wonderful, friendly, professional, discreet and helpful in every way. A big thanks to Bill and Madeline for being so fabulous.
Guess we have to stop now or it you'll think we have shares in the place. We only wish we did. We'll definitely be back and have recommended Barrier Beach House to close friends.
A top place to stay for those wanting to chillax. Can't wait to go back. Thanks again for an extraordinarily, sublime stay.
Selfishly hope it doesn't get too popular or we won't be able to get a reservation! Shhhhhhh:)
