“Sweet stay in the Gingerbread cootage”
Reviewed 6 March 2016 for a stay in February 2016

You can travel all over the world before you'll find owners that make you anymore welcome than Carol, Dick and Lottie....
The cottage is lovely with views over the Westmoreland golf course and to the right .. The carribbean ocean.
You have everything you need in the cottage, it's beautifully clean and if you've forgotten anything .. Just ask Dick
There is a barbecue on you balcony and a wonderful pool 30 steps away. The breeze moves up the hill refreshing the air and making the temperature is fabulous... The rains comes in seconds and disappears the same way.

For peace and quiet... But with access to everywhere by vehicle... Use the in house service to hire... They make it just so easy.

This was my second visit .... It won't be my last

Beautiful gardens.... Fabulous views

“Quiet, sunny, warm, relaxing - wonderful winter break”
Reviewed 29 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

A very pleasant experience. The owners do everything to make your stay a pleasant one. The location is quiet with good views over the golf course and the distant sea. Holetown supermarket, shops, restaurants and beach are just three minutes away by car. Up on a hill you catch the breeze, Great pool - what else could you want.

“Home from home”
Reviewed 12 February 2015 for a stay in January 2015
person found this review helpful

just returned from a lovely 4 week break in Barbados. We really enjoyed our time in Gingerbread. Carol, Dick and Lottie were perfect hosts always there if you needed them but willing to let you get on with it if that's what you preferred. The cottage itself was lovely to nice bedrooms and a big living area with a well stocked kitchen and cable TV. However the highlight was the veranda where you can sit and what the green monkeys play and look out over Westmoreland gold course to the the sea.
The pool is a good size and never felt crowded even on the odd occasions when all the guests were using it. We meet some lovely people in our time here.You will need a hire car but Carol can arrange that for you which makes it much easy.
Definitely the place to stay if you want independent living in Barbados

“Totally relaxing”
Reviewed 10 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014
person found this review helpful

We've just returned from a couple of week's stay accompanied by our two young boys at Gingerbread Cottage and it was everything we could have hoped for and more. Carol & Dick manage the place beautifully, providing everything you need for a totally relaxed holiday. They were always available if we needed them as they live within the grounds, but they totally respected our privacy only coming to the cottage to deliver laundry, which they usually had back to us within a day.
The cottage and surrounding gardens are as lovely as they look in the pictures. The large verandah on both sides of the house benefits from a cooling breeze and is divine to sit out on at any time of day or night and from which there are lovely views across the valley and down to the Caribbean Ocean.
The cottage is well maintained, spacious and homely and is just a few yards from the clean cooling swimming pool which we had pretty much to ourselves for the duration of our stay and where we also made use of the large gas BBQ.
The property is a 20 minute walk/ 5 minute car journey to central Holetown and is therefore not on the coast, but for us it was great to get out of the hustle and bustle of Holetown and back to our quiet relaxing cottage, where we could watch the passing monkeys and cool down in the pool.
Carol hired us a car, which was waiting for us outside the cottage upon arrival and arranged for a car seat for our 3 year old, it couldn't have been easier.
We enjoyed our holiday so much, not only as the place is so pretty and relaxing, but because Carol and Dick were so kind and chillled out. We really can't thank them enough for our wonderful holiday and wish we could have stayed for longer and would not hesitate to recommend the place to anyone.
