My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Dawlish cottage. It was perfect for relaxation. The neighborhood was quiet and very nice. We enjoyed the pool, the breeze, and the sound of the waves crashing on the close by beach. Lorraine, the property manager, was excellent to communicate with and even brought us some sweet bread baked by her husband. The property is a short drive (5-10mins) to grocery stores and 15mins away from the airport. Would definitely recommend this property for those looking to relax in Barbados
So sorry for my late response! It was a pleasure to meet you and your lovely Family.
I am so happy that Dawlish provided that much sought after relaxation for all of you!!
You are welcome back any time.
Take care & best regards to you all.
My family of seven stayed here for several nights and the pictures and description don’t do the house justice. There was room for everyone. The sound of the waves and the view of the ocean was such a delight. We ventured to the beach and beach cliffs many times. The neighbors were friendly. Jan and Lorraine were patient with my many questions which eased my stress traveling with so many kids. Having a cooler and water cooler available was so helpful with long days away from the house exploring the island. Thank you Dawlish. I wish we could have stayed longer.
Thank you Joy for your review. I am pleased that you found Dawlish more than what you expected.
Yes, I agree Dawlish is fabulous spacious property large enough for a family not only to come together to dine, but to have their own down time space too!
I was happy to communicate with you prior to your arrival. Most of all too put your mind at ease that Dawlish was the correct type of property for your holiday.
You and your family are welcome back anytime. Thank you for your booking and looking after Dawlish during your stay.
Dawlish Cottage was a pleasant surprise. From the planning stages of our trip, to the communication on site and the follow up upon our return home everything went off without a hitch. There were 8 of us staying at the property and there was plenty of space for everyone. We loved the location, the view and the pool and would love to stay at Dawlish again in the near future.
Thank you Brian & Lori for taking the time to write a review.
I am so happy Dawlish was the right choice of property for your family. It was a pleasure to correspond with you and I am pleased everything went smoothly for your holiday.
Thank you again for your booking, your family are welcome back anytime.
Lovely Villa with sea breezes!
When we arrived we received a warm meet and greet by Lorraine. She was welcoming and was helpful with tips and advice. She was helpful and prompt with advice prior to our arrival and even after we departed! Our family was presented with a lovely coconut bread baked by her husband-a real treat!
The villa was lovely and spacious. It met our family's needs along with the separate cottage that allowed for a combination of 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. The grounds, house and pool were immaculately maintained and with the gentle sea breezes we never needed to turn on the AC! The Atlantic ocean is only steps away with lovely views from the master bedroom. Being an older house, it needed a few minor repairs but nothing that any home doesn't need from time to time.
The location is not in the hub of the tourist area but had it's own attractions. The villa is only minutes away from the popular Crane Beach where you can rent lounge chairs and umbrellas. Also near by are two wonderful eating establishments: Cutters and Marco Polo both wonderful! There are several grocery stores within a short drive. If your luggage permits..packing items like coffee and tea are a great idea...very expensive as is alcohol with the exception of local rum. Oistins is a short drive and a must for the Friday night fish fry. Also within driving distance are many other excellent restaurants including Champers and Cafe Luna. There are many lovely beaches within driving distance for swimming, and water sports. Our family enjoyed snorkeling, surfing and wind surfing, and a catamaran excursion.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and were sad to leave. We hope to return next year!
Thank you so much Gretchen for your kind words and review. It was a lovely pleasure to meet you (almost felt we knew each other from our fabulous communication leading up to your check in)!!
You have a wonderful family and so happy everyone enjoyed Dawlish and the location. Glad you found some great spots to visit too and I will definitely pass on your compliments to my husband about his Coconut Bread!!! Thank you and your family for looking after Dawlish during your stay. I took on board the couple of observations you made e.g the bathroom latch. As you noticed Dawlish has a country style to it, in keeping with that some of the fixtures are country style too!! Probably need regular attention - oiling - now & again!! However we are grateful for feedback, unless you actually stay somewhere and use the facilities, one may not notice wear & tear which can affect using them efficiently.
We would love to have your family back - you are all welcome back any time.
Thanks again Gretchen for your booking.
Take care and best regards,
Perfect Spot for Relaxing
While this house is not near the touristy areas, the location was ideal for our family. You will need to rent a car (and drive on the "wrong" side of the road) to reach this place, but as you will discover, you really will need a car on this island anyway. The house has three bedrooms (all upstairs). The master bedroom has a king sized bed with an attached 3/4 bath, one bedroom has a queen and the other, two twins. Their is also another 3/4 bath and loft area with a pull out couch.
The house is so beautiful and all of the windows and doors make for an amazing cross breeze. This is clearly an older home that has been well maintained, the house has all of the little quirks that we love in old houses. The yard is gorgeous and well maintained, the pool is perfect, and there is quick access to the ocean (no swimming on this side of the island). There are plenty of beach towels, so no need to pack those. We also liked having the washer and dryer (make sure to bring laundry soap).
This was our first trip to Barbados and I wanted to pass along a few tips: bring your own coffee and tea. Also, if you can manage it, bring along your own breakfast items. Cereal, pb&j and the like are very expensive here. Also, bring bug spray. While the kitchen is well equipped, if you plan to cook, you will want to bring your own spices, etc. We shopped at the Emerald market, which is maybe 15 minutes from the house, and they have reasonably priced milk and eggs. Snack type food was very expensive, so again, if you have the room in your suitcase, bring your own.
As far as driving on the island, it takes forever to get anywhere! If you can, try to take the ABC highway as much as possible, the roads are awful and if the map on your phone says it will take 20 minutes to get somewhere, double it.
I can't wait for our next visit and would love the chance to stay in this gorgeous home again!
Thank you Hope for your detailed review.
So pleased Dawlish was perfect for relaxation for your lovely family.
Yes, I agree a hired vehicle is recommended, this is mentioned on the website. I highlight this fact to any potential guests at the time of booking. For us English and Bajans, it is the correct side of the road to drive!!! Hahaha, I remember your husband making this point. Especially as some of the roads are very narrow & lots of roundabouts, it can be hair-raising!!!
Glad you took my tip on board to bring your own coffee! To be fair, I always mention this tip prior to guests travelling here - mainly if one has a preference for a particular brand - you may not get it here.
It was a pleasure to me your family & pleased you & your daughter enjoyed the Coconut bread!!
Thank you again for your booking.
Take care, Lorraine.
Great villa in a wonderful location!
This was a wonderful house to be able to stay in while on vacation. We loved dining on the porch and relaxing by the pool. It's so nice to have ac in the bedrooms for sleeping, and it's not really needed downstairs due to the constant breeze. The location was perfect to catch the most beautiful sunrises over the small beach. And the grocery store was no more than a 5 to 10 minute car ride away. We love staying on this side of the island due to the rugged beauty and getting to immerse ourselves in the culture and meeting friendly locals. Make sure to go to Kenny's on Friday and Saturday nights for the best grilled fish, ribs and chicken on the island. They set up in a church parking lot only a couple minutes away. Many thanks to Lorraine and Jan who both helped with our questions and arrival. And I must say that the gardener does an amazing job keeping the property looking beautiful. We hope to stay here again sometime!
Thank you so much Abigail for taking the time to write a lovely review. Happy to hear you all enjoyed dining & relaxing all together at Dawlish. Yes, I agree, this location perfect for Guests who truly want to get away from it all and appreciate the true ruggedness of Barbados.
Thank you for your booking. Jan & I truly appreciate the respect your party showed by looking after Dawlish during your stay.
Good for you all coming across Kenny Fish Fry on a Friday & Saturday night, love the ribs too!!!
Bienvenue à Dawlish Cottage! Situé dans la zone tranquille de Bel Air sur la côte sud-est de la Barbade. Cette propriété privée unique avec un chalet supplémentaire peut accueillir jusqu'à 8 adultes. Imaginez une plage magnifique avec des criques raboteuses et des vues incroyables à travers les portes arrière de votre propre jardin! La plage de Dawlish est à un jet de pierre! La station de Crane est à quelques minutes en voiture ou en taxi offrant un choix de 3 restaurants et boutiques hors taxes. Crane Beach étant nommée "l'une des dix meilleures plages du monde" par Lifestyles of the Riche and Famous, est particulièrement spectaculaire.
Il y a plusieurs autres plages et baies dans les environs immédiats: le château de Sam Lords, Harrismith, Palmetto et Long Bay sont également des plages magnifiques. Un autre 20 minutes en voiture, vous pouvez profiter de l'agitation de la côte sud. Les plages sont beaucoup plus fréquentées, bien que l'océan peut être beaucoup plus calme que la côte sud-est accidentée.
L'aéroport est situé à environ 15 minutes et la capitale, Bridgetown (pour Duty Free Shopping), à environ 30 minutes du quartier de Bel Air. 10 minutes en voiture vous emmène à Emerald City, ici vous avez 2 banques, un supermarché bien approvisionné et un bureau de poste.
La Barbade a un temps chaud toute l'année avec des températures qui ne descendent jamais en dessous du milieu des années 70 (27-30 degrés centigrades). La douce brise de l'Atlantique de ce côté de l'île signifie que même les jours les plus chauds, les températures sont confortables. N'importe quand de l'année est un bon moment pour visiter. Mais particulièrement merveilleux dans les mois d'hiver avec une brise rafraîchissante des alizés. Pas étonnant que l'île regorge de gens venus du monde entier entre janvier et mars. Si vous cherchez un endroit pour planifier votre séjour à Dawlish Cottage, en particulier pour les semaines de relâche populaires et à Pâques.
La Barbade est une île de FESTIVALS comprenant: le festival de jazz et les championnats de surf en janvier, le festival de Holetown, la saison des détenteurs et la Gold Cup en février et mars, Gospelfest en mai, les célèbres Crop Over de juillet à août et les championnats de surf en novembre.
Pour la vie nocturne, à environ 20 minutes en voiture du populaire St Lawrence Gap. Pour le poisson frais pêché ce jour-là, l'Oistins Fish Fry le vendredi soir est un succès auprès des touristes et des locaux.
Cette maison spacieuse et chalet pittoresque ci-joint serait parfait pour les réunions de famille, ou une fête de mariage, même en ayant votre propre cérémonie personnalisée à Dawlish Beach, un cadre magnifique. Dawlish Cottage conviendrait également à une escapade romantique, pour une solitude complète et la vie privée.
