OMG!! Where do I begin? On a scale of 1 - 10, Surfer's Shack is a 15. Mike and Mia are definite 15's. It's as if they lived in the Shack for a month before renting it. Everything you could possibly need has been provided, and then some. My flight was delayed and didn't get in until midnight. Not only did they arrange for my transportation, but the kitchen was stocked with everything I would need for breakfast! I did not rent a car as I was traveling by myself and thought driving on the left and sightseeing at the same time would be a recipe for disaster. Not to worry! Surfer's Shack is within walking distance of multiple beaches, a grocery store, the open air markets and more places for eating and drinking than I can list, including the famous fish fry. There are a number of tours offered by various groups. I suggest that you sign up for at least one. Not only will you see the sights, but you will have running commentary from the drivers along the way. Mia checked and double checked to make sure I was actually registered for the tours that I selected and she and Mike happily offered to drive me to pick up places since I was not staying at a registered hotel. I am accustomed to traveling by myself and the location of the Shack and the island in general was totally safe. Use your common sense: if you wouldn't walk around at midnight at home, don't do it in Barbados. With that being said: Talk to the locals!! They are very respectful and won't bother you, but say Good Morning or ask questions. Everyone I met was friendly and glad to answer any questions that I had. Surfer's Shack is a hidden gem. If it is booked for the dates that you want, check with Mia and Mike. They have several other properties and I have no doubt you will be equally happy with those. Enjoy Barbados!! If you can't find something to do... you aren't looking hard enough. One week was not adequate for my to do list!! I'll be back! Thank you Mia and Mike!!
We enjoyed 5 wonderful days at Surfers Shack.
The house is super cozy, clean and neat. The host Michael was extremely friendly and helpful, he showed us the place and explained everything upon our arrival.
The house has everything you need for both short and long stays - all kitchenware and bath utilities; Wi-fi and TV subscriptions, a large (very large) bed and a sofa, AC, a barbecue grill and a hammock outside. On top of that, it has a perfect location - just 1 min from the Fright’s bay where you can practice your surf skills, especially if it’s your first surfing experience (Ride the Tide surf school is just around the corner) and 5 mins walk to the heavenly beautiful white-sand Enterprise (Miami) beach. Most suitable for solo travelers or couples. 10 from 10, highly recommended.
