Carolita Cottage was an ideal venue for our two weeks in Barbados and we loved it!
Situated a five minute drive from Holetown,and having lovely fresh breezes to keep you comfortable,the gated property has four houses on it, in addition to the home of the owners, Carol and Dick, who with their daughter, Lottie are the ideal hosts.(most helpful, but not intrusive!)Not forgetting Cuddles,Max and Toby....great wee dogs!!
We utilised the package deal,so our AC Rental car was sitting at the cottage when we arrived and Carol arranged our local Driver's Licences for us.
Carolita had everything we needed...fully equipped kitchen...lots of wardrobe and drawer space...great shower...digital safe...comfortable beds and a super pool, shared by the four houses,with a wee bar,with 'fridge and a BBQ, plus plenty loungers and seats, shaded by umbrellas.
Lots to see and do on this beautiful island and we made good use of our wee car to venture to all the different attractions and to enjoy the wide variety of eating places.
We had a really relaxing holiday and loved coming "home" to Carolita after sightseeing.....to relax in the peaceful atmosphere...admire the scenery and enjoy a wee swim.....or just laze!!
We will be back!
My boyfriend and I stayed in Carol and Dick's house for his 46th birthday, and it was perfect. The location is beautiful, and it's only a short walk to a gorgeous nearby beach. We didn't rent a car (it wasn't necessary for where we were going) but Carol has that option available for much cheaper than nearby car rentals. If you are nervous about getting rides or taking a bus, that might be an option for you.
The house is in a nice area, surrounded by beautiful landscaping. There is a pool which was always warm. We saw several monkeys, which was a highlight. Carol and Dick are very generous and friendly people, and told us some hilarious stories. Every amenity you need is located at the house. We will definitely be back soon.
Carolita Cottage is part of Westerlee, a group of four rental properties on a former estate, with nice plantings and plenty of open space which share a large recently-refinished pool. Although not far from Holetown, it is a quiet country retreat, with long views to meadows and a large golf course. The owner/manager lives on the edge of the property, and ensures that the property is well kept and that our needs are satisfied. We plan to return again.
We stayed here on our honeymoon and can not fault it we both felt very blessed to have found this little piece of paradise and to top it off was having the great owners carol and dick around. they are wonderful people very warm, welcoming and cant do enough to make your stay perfect. we are going back this year coming 2017 and probably every year following as why go anywhere else when you have everything you dreamed of in one place!
Carol and Dick were the perfect hosts always willing to stop and chat and help if required.
The pool and grounds are very well kept. The cottage was everything you need for a self catering holiday, well equipped and clean. AC not required as a cool breeze keeps the the place just right.
You can walk into Holetown from the cottage but taxi back [ walking back not recommended ]
Thank you Carol and Dick.
