“Truly a rare gem”

I have just returned with my longtime girlfriend from 8 days 7 nights in this quaint little cottage over looking the pool in Holetown, Barbados. I cannot say enough positive things about our experience . The place is as described and amazing. Just a few mins from one of the best places we found on the island to snorkel Folkstone Marine Sanctuary we found it well located and easy enough to find even if the roads aren't marked and the tourist maps are bad. The people who maintain the property were friendly helpful and just plain nice. No question was stupid no request too small and we found ourselves chatting them up regularly and simply enjoying the company of people staying at the other cottages. When I return to the island there is no where els I would consider staying. We had an amazing trip due in large part to finding this little gem. The property is the smallest of three and perfect for a couple but when they say studio style villa they mean it. Its one room with a bathroom and plenty of fans, no ac but you dont miss it just get used to the windows being open and keep the fans running. The bathroom was quiet nice and the shower had the fanciest show head I have encountered, no tub but honestly your washing off sand and salt you don't miss it.

Yes there really are monkeys on the property, the mango trees are full of em and they are surprisingly carefree about people, we spent a few morning just hanging out snapping pictures of them and the horse pasture where my girlfriend was very fond of them both.

“Fabulous Apartment”

We have just returned from a wonderful,relaxing stay at Carolita Cottage. It is one of four rental properties set in beautiful gardens with a lovely pool and barbecue area for use of all guests.Everything is maintained to the highest levels and Carol,Dick and family are pleased to help you with anything you may need. They offer a car to hire which is a great addition and will help you in your exploration of this wonderful island.Highly recommended!!


“Excellent, very comfortable, accommodation.”

We had a great stay at Carolita. Carol, the owner, was really friendly and helpful. The apartment is spacious and very well equipped. The shared pool is lovely and great for a swim at anytime. We took out the full package which included car rental which was good value. You do, though, have to make your own way to and from the airport so watch out for taxi fares. We suggest you agree the rate with the driver before you go, The rate is about $40US but one driver tried to charge us $60US.


“Ótima opção a um bom custo”

Casa aconchegante próxima das melhores praias da ilha. Carol e D ick nos recebem muito bem e dão todas as dicas necessárias. Recomendo alugar o carro também com a Carol já que é uma boa caminhada até a praia (subida na volta).
Boa piscina com churrasqueira disponível.
Jardim maravilhoso no condomínio com a visita ocasional dos m a c a c os.


“Excellent vacation rental,very good value”

This rental is excellent value,I would recommend the car package it will give you more flexibility to explore the island.
Carol and Dick are great hosts and will point you in the right direction if you require information otherwise give you your privacy.
Once again I highly recommend this rental
