“The bajan experience.”
Reviewed 26 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

This is a great apartment spacious and clean. It has two bedrooms that can sleep 4. We were very comfortable here, we stayed for 8 nights and it felt like home. We got to see monkeys right in the front yard a few days. The beach was a short walk and near by fish market. The kitchen was well equipped we were able to cook all week. The buses run frequently right on the corner , making it easy and affordable to gst around the island.
Olivet and her brother made us feel welcome and safe.
We had an amazing time and we will come back again.

“A Bajan Experience”
Reviewed 21 February 2017 for a stay in February 2017
person found this review helpful

My 18 year old son and I stayed a week at Olivet's cottage and thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

The Cottage is located in a quiet Bajan residental area, yet it is within a 5 to 10 minute walk of the beach, fish market and bus stop/route. The bus goes to Bridgetown, Holetown and Speightown, just to name a few. The grocery store is about a 10 minute bus ride away and the store has a shuttle service available to return you to the cottage with yiur groceries.

The cottage was very clean and, spacious enough to easily accommodate 4 adults. There are two separate bedrooms with a queen size bed in each . The beds and pillows are comfortable. There are fans located in each room and with the windows open you can catch a nice breeze.

There is a very good restaurant, Cariba, just 2 minutes down the street. It is a little pricy, but the food and cocktails were excellent. ...the mango coconut cheesecake is highly recommended by my son.

Olivet was easily available during our stay and helped us with all our questions. We experienced a little challange with the airport shuttle and she was able to contact an alternative driver in short order.

We travel to experience the culture and customs of the country's people. Staying in a Bajan community gave us this wonderful opportunity.

Thank you Olivet.

Liz and Landon
