We,a family of four with two teenagers, spent 10 very happy days at Gingerbread Cottage. The cottage is absolutely charming and the location just stunning. You are so close to nature - our children ate coconuts and passionfruit straight from the trees. The garden is beautifully maintained and we often went for a walk, took our old bananas and fed them to the monkeys at the bottom of the valley. There is a nice breeze most of the time and that means hardly any mosquitos. The pool is huge and has the right amount of sun and shade. Gingerbread Cottage is equipped with everything you need and Carol and her family were very helpful and made us feel special. You do need a car to get to the beaches and shops. We enjoyed the freedom of not staying in a hotel.
Thank you to Carol and her family - we will be back!

We would like to say thank you to Carol and her family for her great hospitality. We had a wonderful time at your cottage. We enjoyed the pool and the huge porch every day. The location is perfect for exploring the wonderful and very interesting island. The children are still talking about their adventures almost every day.
We hope very much to come back some day!

We stayed for 2 weeks a Gingerbread Cottage. What a beautiful location. The cottage is 2 "Chattel Houses" put together to make one delightful cottage with a large wrap around veranda. Also on the property are 2 other villas, all this on several acres of land. It may lack the opulence of a Marriott but it has a charm that a big hotel can never have. We ate our "at home" meals on the porch where we could find shade and there was usually a cooling breeze. There are many restaraunts in the area but we did stray all over the island from this location. The owners made suggestions about activities and places of interest that were helpful. This has been a very pleasant and sucessfull vacation and a definite "must return". The swimming pool was a great feature of the property. It is large deep and well cared for. We only went to the ocean to swim 3 times in the 2 weeks and we visualized an ocean swim every day. In fact it was the pool about 3 times a day. If there was something I didn't like about this property it was relligated to the background by all the things we did like. The owners were always available and we were well looked after by Carol and Richard. I have said nothing about the tropical flowers but I must leave something for you to find yourself.

Carol and her family are very welcoming and nothing is too much trouble. We loved Gingerbread Cottage for its fabulous setting, (including big open spaces for our teenage boys to play football, cricket etc), fantastic views and use of the private pool. The property is very clean, comfortable and equipped with everything you need. We were not put off by the fact that you need to have a car and we have already booked our third visit to this truly wonderful property together with friends and family!

We have been staying at Gingerbread Cottage for
about 5 years and it is our haven. The view form
the terrace is stunning especially whilst swinging
gently in the hammock! The cottage is well equipped
and beautifully decorated and everything is kept
spotless. Carol provides loads of towels including
The swimming pool and its terraces have stopped us
going to the beach we love it so much.
We love to barbecue fresh fish by the pool and pick
fresh limes off the tree in the garden for our rum
Carol, Dick and Lottie provide the highest
standards of service whilst keeping a low profile
so as not to interfere with your holiday - unless
you want them to of course! Carol seems to be able
to supply just about anything you ask for and Dick
is always around to fix anything that needs fixing.
There is nothing that we don't like about
I was loathe to write this review because I really
don't want more people knowing about this wonderful

If you are looking for a true tropical experience dont miss staying at the Gingerbread Cottage. If you are looking for a place that is clean, comfortable, private, with tremendous beauty choose to stay here. With a georgous view, constant breeze for cooling down, swimming pool, hammock for relaxing, huge sundeck for that outdoor living, beautiful gardens and well keep grounds and many sightings of the monkeys dont miss staying at the Gingerbread Cottage. This has been my favorite place to stay on the island being so close to beaches, stores, restaurants and entertainment I would not miss it.

A Slice of Eden at the Romantic Gingerbread Cottage.

After hunting around on the web for the best place, my husband and I decided on the Gingerbread cottage to celebrate our first anniversary/honeymoon. The photos on the website made the cottage look beautiful, cozy, and romantic. It was in fact all of these things and more. The cottage is situated on five acres of property, but stands near the main house, pool, and other two villas for rent. We absolutely loved the cottage! We spent three days at the cottage, reading from the great set of books provided at the cottage and hanging out by the pool, before we even wanted to check out the rest of the island. The view is spectacular from the cottage! The island birds visited us every morning and we even spent a morning feeding the wild monkeys behind the cottage, totally thrilling! The property owner, Carol, also helped us get situated on our first day by arranging a ride for us to the grocery store and back. The reality of the cottage is that it is rustic, not a typical hotel room. In the evening, the sunset is spectacular to watch as well as the fireflies, but bring bug spray because there are mosquitoes. We slept really well in the bedroom despite the lack of AC. The air is so amazing in Barbados that I'm glad we didn't need AC. My husband and I dined at some of the other hotels in Barbados, like the Royal Fairmont and Crane Resort. What we realized is that we had much more privacy, seclusion, and beauty at the cottage. I felt like we were in a movie most of the time at the Cottage. The last thing I might mention is that it's not on the beach, but you can take a ten-fifteen minute walk to it. The walk is exciting and we also saw monkeys on the way. My husband and I realized that we always had more fun doing nothing at the cottage than going into town or driving the roads to different tourist spots. It was truly a slice of Eden and we have amazing memories for life!
