A simple wooden house set among flowering trees, 100m from dazzling Batts Rock beach. With the sound of the sea and the moon streaming in, this is a house for people who want to watch the world unfold. Plus humming birds, butterflies and monkeys!

L'alloggio

An eco-friendly wooden house that we built to suit the kind of life we prefer. Not a showpiece, it's a home. We concentrated on the important parts - kitchen, baths, open living space, and jalousie windows and doors for air and light. The entire western, sea-facing side of the house can be opened up, with a wrought iron grille downstairs and laminated glass doors upstairs, both with open verandahs with sun blinds. At night the moonlight streams in and the fireflies float past.
Since January 2017 there's been a road cut with direct access to Batts Rock Beach - a little more traffic noise, especially on public holidays but the silver lining is easier access to the beach and a better view of the sea now that some of the trees have been cleared. And there is a new landscaped (concrete) 'boardwalk' along the cliff with very good views of the sea and especially the sunsets.]
We are close to the beach so there's a hot and cold outside shower for quick rinses, or more.
1 main bedroom and one guest room - ideal for 3; workable with 4. After that, you're into the sofa or sleeping bags. No more than 5.

Accesso ospiti

Guests will have access to the whole house and yard, except for a single cupboard where we store personal items. Feel free to read the books but don`t take them away - we either will read them eventually, or plan to keep them.

Interazione con gli ospiti

We or our representative will ensure that guests are settled in. After that we leave you alone, with a contact number for queries. If we are in the island during your visit, I'll be staying in the first house on the property and will be easily available for for questions, solutions, directions, advice.

Altre cose da evidenziare

We can provide a contact for cleaning - normally US$40 a day when she comes. You can make your own arrangements with her.

Andy is an outstanding person! He makes you feel welcome and right at home, his generosity surpasses my expectations! So let's get right into it: Residential location to his residence is central! Access to catch the local buses are directly across the street into town. Can't beat the price of $2.00USD each way! Please enjoy the ever so loved Soca music and Reggae music that's blasted while riding a maxi bus!! Buses run adequately and frequently throughout the day. However, after 12pm midnight good luck, it's better to call a cab or rent a car! Night life is accessible there are 2 restaurant/bars less then 2 miles from Andy house. If your feeling adventurous head down to Ostins fish fry area. There's also a Bridgetown food fair on this particular Friday August 4, 2017 - 6pm to midnight that sales arts and crafts and other little delectables! I'm sure this is annually in this particular month of August just not sure what day it will fall on in 2018. But the greatest man I ever known aka Andy wouldn't be happier to answer all questions and concerns!!! There is a little gas station mart called Esso in walking distance from the house, where you can grab little items and snacks that will carry you throughout your day. On Tuesday and Wednesday there is a coconut man that sale fresh coconut 1 block away from the house going to the direction to Bridgetown for $1.00USD each in the Early morning hours. Bajan people are extremely friendly if you need advice or help with directions just ask. My vacation to Barbados was for carnival aka Kadoment! which was a blast and a remarkable experience! Andy location is directly down the street from the roundabout where the parade circles around. So if you would like to see the carnival aka Kadoment it's once a year in the beginning of August. I was able to book a tourist attraction to swim with the turtles, snorkel the ship wrecks and drink plenty yummy rum punch with a catamaran cruise called: Tiamic(URL HIDDEN) it was a 5hr excursion, cost $90.00USD include breakfast and lunch with unlimited amount of drinks. Nevertheless, they accommodate you by picking you up right from Andy house and dropping you off as well. Andy property is lush with vegetation of natural breadfruit, aloe Vera. He has beautiful trees that have orange flowers that bloom amongst the canopy line. On the second level of the townhouse you can view Batts Rock beach which is 1 block from his residence. The beach is public but you'll hardly see anybody so it's like you'll have a private oasis to yourself. In the far distance from the sea line you will see people sailing and others spear fishing for the catch of the day! Please come prepare with your natural mosquito spray. I made my own using natural lavender essential oil, to include citronella oil, peppermint oil, eucalyptus oil and adding it to a spray bottle container...

The house is even better in person...highly recommended. Designed by Andy and his wife, the house is two floors, feels private to the road side, and opens up with large folding screens and doors to balconies that overlook the beach side. Breezy, light, with tasteful furniture, and all the household items that makes a house feel like a home. This is a place for a vacation as much as a place to work on a creative project for a couple/few weeks in a calming and stunning place. Beach feels secret and quiet, compared to other trafficked/exclusive beaches along this part of the West Coast. 1 minute walk down the road. Excellent beach for everything you'd look for, including some snorkeling, rock pools, cliffs, and crystal clear water, a beach park, and a footpath to the local fish market. Andy is a gentleman of a host, and was a pleasure to interact with him in every way, from the AirBnB communication, to sharing a drink after he took us to the local supermarket, to discussing his book collection in his book store. Thank you Andy :) Everything fantastic!

Andy is a great host, even leaving us fresh mangos one morning. The beach the house overlooks is even more perfect than the pictures show. We watched monkeys play in the tress while watching the sunset on the upper decks most evenings. We did get a lot of mosquito bites, so you will need the nets provided at night!

It was a pretty easy decision when I came across Andy's beautiful home while looking for a place to stay during our visit in Barbados. The location was perfect for me and my friends. It was easy access to public transportation( bus/taxi), near by a couple of restaurants and a gas station but more importantly only a minute walk to a hidden gem beach. The view of the beach in the morning and watching the sunset from the balcony is always a joy. I personally really admire the design and open contemporary concept of the house, especially the outdoor showers!. You really take in what the environment has to offer with the openness of this home. It was also bigger than what I expected and has more than everything we needed for our stay. We also enjoyed the company of 3 cats,2 dogs, and occasional monkeys and humming birds in the property. Although Andy was not present during our stay he was easy to communicate with and responded right away with any help we needed. His daughter and granddaughter were hospitable and were always available or only a phone call away. I recommend this home to anybody who wants to experience Barbados in an authentic way. Definitly 11/10! Hope to stay here again in the future. Thanks Andy!

Thanks, Christine. Those are all the reasons why we like the house so muc as well. I've passed your very kind comments on to Shani and especially Raschida - it's her first time Airbnb 'hosting' and she'll be thrilled. Except she might want to be paid and I'll have no defence.

What a magical holiday! Andy's house is a little piece of heaven. Fantastically located right by one of the best beaches on the island. Most of the time we had the beach to ourselves. The photos of the house really don't portray how wonderful the place is. We spent many evenings watching the fireflies and humming birds and the occasional monkey!! Andy is the perfect host. So very friendly and helpful. He even drove us to the local supermarket on the first day so we could stock up on essentials and shared a few beers with him in the local bar afterwards! The holiday was as close to perfection as could possibly be. 100% recommended.

You were wonderful guests. I was looking for the used towels and you'd already washed and folded them away! Amazing! Thanks for coming and I'm glad you enjoyed the holiday.

We had a fantastic vacation in Barbados and enjoyed our stay at Bay&Ackee. We liked the open concept of the house and the size was perfect for us; we left the big glass doors open at night in the upper bedroom and could listen to the waves, the frogs or the rain coming down. Andy was very welcoming and kind - as we had a fairly late arrival he even left us some food items to get us going the first morning. We had rented a car, but there is a bus stop right in front of the house. The road next to the house is under construction and can be noisy at times; it did not bother us much as the work was done intermittently. It took us less than two minutes to get to the beach from the house. It was fabulously empty and quiet, we had it all to ourselves! Would definitely recommend Andy's place to anyone.

We try not to complicate things. We teach women and gender studies, sell books and edit; walk on the beach, and listen to people's music. We buy fresh veggies in the market and fish from the fishermen. We built a house in the trees away from the noise. It`s a good life.
