What Past Guests Are Saying
Ship Bottom, New Jersey
I Vant to Be alone
If you love a lonely beach and are really organized as far as planning menus - then this is the place for a few days of peace and quiet. The house is comfortable and spacious. The pics speak volumes about its setting - beachfront! The kitchen could use some updating as far as pots and pans, but I loved the fact that we were living off the grid. The house is completely solar powered. Dine al fresco but burn the candles and make sure you close the doors during twilight. The midges are treacherous. The very best kept secret is about a mile's hike up the dirt road: the defunct K-Club beaches are accessible through a very limp bit of barbed wire along the beach. This beach is the epitome of lonesome luxury. Pack your hors d'oeuvres and a bottle of wine (remember to be an organized shopper) and laze away hours without seeing a soul. By organized shopper I mean - I highly recommend your bring everything you might like to eat with you from antigua - including your booze. Barbuda offers very limited shopping in its honky little town. The only real option for an evening out is to reserve at least a day ahead and dine at the owner of the cottages father's place next door - Uncle Roddy's. He cooks a mean grouper and is a very pleasant fellow.
Tropical paradise with secluded beach, great snorkeling & dreamy
After a week at Barbuda Cottages, I'm surprised we could tear ourselves away to come home.
First: The Cottage - 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, full of ammenities. You have a commanding view of the tropical blue ocean and a fantastic sunset every night. Everything about the cottage was comfortable and thoughtfully appointed. The solar power made us feel like we were leaving a small footprint on the beautiful surroundings. Kelcina left a generous welcome basket in the kitchen which was great for evening cocktails, breakfast, and an impromptu dinner. There are snorkeling supplies and plenty of beach towels...you can pack light and still have everything you need.
Second: The Beach - you really have the beach to yourself. Occassional yacht dingies, day trippers, and locals are dotted along the shore...but don't get the idea you're fighting for space! We rarely saw anyone else and had the snorkeling to ourselves. Wade into the crystal clear water and within 5 feet, there's something beautiful to look at--sea fans, urchins, rays, and fish.
Next: Nearby attractions - Uncle Roddy's (Kelcina's dad) is 100 yards down the road. Be sure to make reservations for lobster and if it's available, you must have the snapper. Even BBQ chicken tastes better! -A short drive up the road is the (now closed) K Club. You can still access the beach, Diana Princess of Wales Beach (formerly access Beach) which is also deserted but is exquisite. The most beautiful beach we've ever seen. -A Frigate Bird Tour (ask for Pat)...truly a unique experience and Pat is masterful at giving you interesting, knowledgeable information.
Finally: Kelcina - Kelcina is a wonderful hostess. She and her family have created a carefree get-away. If she happens to be on the island when you arrive, you'll have nothing to want for. Gracious and kind, Kelcina grew up on Barbuda and is helpful with tons of information
We've been back for 2 days and miss Barbuda and the cottage already!
Relaxing Private Beach
The view from this private beachfront cottage is picture postcard perfect. As part of the property, our family had the use of a sun shelter just above a soft sandy shore. No competition for beach chairs here! My husband and I enjoyed long barefoot walks following the shoreline, undisturbed except for the occasional sighting of the native wildlife - birds, fish, chickens, donkeys etc. Our kids swam and snorkeled in the calm bathwater warm sea steps from the cottage. The beds were comfortable and each kid had their own bedroom on the opposite side of the cottage with their own shared bathroom . I particularly liked the outside beach shower under the cottage for de-sanding. Kelcina was available and a very helpful host throughout our Barbuda stay. Uncle Roddy's Barbeque nearby provided a freshly cooked lunch daily. A very relaxing stay.
This is everything you are looking for
My girlfriend and I were looking for a get away that was romantic and quiet and heard about this rental from a friend that had seen it online.
This place is amazing. From the stilted house, the views, the privacy and the service. Kelsina was there for us with anything we needed.
I could right a book on everything we liked about it and have already booked again for next year.
Highly, Highly recommended

We can't believe a place like this actually exists. The house and the beach were pristine. we felt like millionaires with our own unspoiled beach and own private villa. It is the best house on an incredible island.
On the morning we arrived at the house, we were amazed at how much Barbuda Cottages looks like the pictures. The porch is huge and the ocean views are stunning. In the refrigerator the management left us fresh eggs, milk, butter and jam. There was fresh baked bread and coffee as well. After breakfast on the porch, we went back inside and discovered they even left us a bottle of Barbuda rum for afternoon cocktails. Very cool.
We woke up with gorgeous views of the sunrise and the ocean. We really appreciated that the house is solar powered. Its nice to know that the fabulousness of the house (washing machine, ceiling fans, refrigerator, television, dvd player, etc) left no carbon footprint on the nature surrounding this gorgeous place. The bed felt better than the ones at the Four Seasons, and the towels and kitchen supplies were nice quality and in abundance.
We didn't rent a car because we decided to take advantage of local taxis and bike rentals. The house has a mobile phone for guests to use, so if we were out or at home and needed a ride someplace, all we had to do was make a call. It was great especially since it began to feel like the people town were collectively taking care of us. We met so many nice people: Uncle Roddy at Uncle Roddy's Beach Bar was so kind. He gave my husband extra fishing line and great tips about the best fishing spots on the beach. At the grocery store, Lincoln remembered our names and helped us feel like part of the community. Natacky at the Tourism Office was super helpful arranging tours that were specific to our needs and tastes--even if you're not into birds, you should see the Frigate Bird Sanctuary with Pat. And Kelcina is amazing. She called to make sure that we were comfortably settling in, she met us at the airport and when she waved goodbye as we left, I held back tears making my husband promise that we'd come back within a year. Her kindness, her attention to detail, and her desire to make sure we have the best experience in Barbuda were beyond our expectations.
The beach at the house is gorgeous: powdery sand and the clear blue Caribbean Sea and no one was there but us. At night, the stars were large and bright. We didn't know places like this still existed. The other beaches on the island kept getting better and better. At Coco Point, we walked for a few miles on white powder sand and finally met two French guys who swam to shore from their yacht offshore. At Palm Beach, we were alone again on a pink sand beach and at Spanish Point we watched the place where the Caribbean meets the atlantic.
We liked the unspoiled beaches and the privacy most of all. The people in the village showed a generosity of spirit that was contagious. Back in New York, we found ourselves more willing to stop and greet a stranger. The thing I really hated was that we only booked for a week. Next time, we'll plan to stay longer. It felt so good to slow down in Paradise and we can't wait to come back!
