* French version below * My friend and I went at Samantha’s place from June 14 to June 16 and by now, it was one of the greatest vacations of my life! Samantha and her husband are so careful, welcoming, attentive, helpful, sweet… name it all ! They are absolutely amazing and we really felt like home when we were there. Bernard came to pick us up at the airport and we had such an amazing and interesting conversation while we were on the road. It was so good to listen to his point of view about life ! What a good way to start our vacation ! It was raining a lot outside when we arrive in Barbados at the end of the afternoon, so when we came at the house, Samatha kindly bring us some clean towel to dry up ourselves a little bit ! We went at the supermarket and at Cheffette (one of their most popular fast food on the island) to grab diner with Bernard. He also. kindly stop at a convenient store so we can get a few beers (ahh, vacation ;-) ! ). My friend and I went to the beach on Friday and we eat some fresh (and delicious!) fish. We met so many nice people at the beach, it was awesome ! ** Everything was absolutely perfect, I couldn’t have dream of a better place to go. In fact, I’d rather say that it was even more then perfect! People are incredibly kind, relax and they are so welcoming. I’ve been able to reconnect with nature since a long time now and it felt so, so, so good. The landscape is breathtaking, the view is beautiful… The horses are wonderful and adorable! I used to take riding lessons when I was younger and let me tell you something, theses horses are as sweet as the people who lives in Barbados ! They are super calm, curious and well trained ! You can see that Samantha and Bernard are passionate about what they do and it is so good to see ! I would recommend to everybody to go at Echo Stables at least a few days when they will travel to Barbados. This place is a real treasure and I would LOVE to go back anytime soon. * Samantha and Bernard, thank you so much for all your help and your kindness. We had such a wonderful and unforgettable time when we were at your house ! We will come by anytime soon !! * ** FRANÇAIS ** Mon amie et moi sommes allées chez Samantha et Bernard du 14 au 16 juin dernier. Jusqu’à présent, ce fut de loin les plus belles vacances de ma vie ! Samantha et son mari sont tellement attentionnés, à l’écoute, chaleureux, adorables… et j’en passe ! Ils sont tout simplement formidables, nous nous sentions comme à la maison. Bernard est venu nous chercher à l’aéroport et nous avons eu une conversation très intéressante et...

I enjoyed my stay. It's nice and secluded and felt very homey. We embarked on the self-guided hike and it was alot of fun!

A beautiful refuge. Wonderful place to come home to at the end of a day exploring. Off the beaten track. Warm friendly atmosphere. Puppies and kittens and horses. Beautiful views and audible ocean waves. Sam is a gracious hostess. Definitely rent a car. Great location for peaceful evenings and close with nature. We stayed here a week and then stayed on the south shore for 3 nights. It was a good combination. We drove everywhere, all over the island, and found the east coast was maybe out of the way but worthwhile for a more authentic experience.

We had an amazing, and super relaxing time here. After spending 6 nights on the east coast this was the perfect spot for exploring the wilder (and more beautiful) west coast. The apartment is basic but has all the essentials and an amazing view. Samantha was an excellent host, really friendly and welcoming, as were her adorable puppies. We would highly recommend hiring a car, it's a short drive to most of the attractions in Barbados but the place itself is very remote (in all the best ways!) we'd highly recommend staying here for some rest and relaxation.

Had a wonderful and relaxing stay at Samantha's place. The surrounding country, views and nature is unspoilt and beautiful. A hidden gem, can recommend to anyone.

My girlfriend and I stayed with Samantha for 3 nights and we would absolutely stay again. It is a beautiful proberty out on the countryside, and there are horses and other animals right there. This place is perfect for people who want something different than the beach resorts on the south coast. Samantha wasn't on the island the night we checked in, but she was still very helpful from afar, and had her sister get us all settled in. When she arrived the next day she checked in to make sure everything was going well, and it was. We highly recommend renting a car for the time you're there, as the bus service is hourly out that far. Like I said, we had a great stay and highly recommend it!

Samantha's place was unbelievably beautiful! I slept like a baby and greatly enjoyed walking to the beach and local eateries, horseback riding, reading books while listening to the ocean, working in the beautiful WIFI equipped space, and interacting with her lovely family. I'd highly recommend Samantha's place (AND a horseback ride) if you're looking for relaxation and a little adventure. It's off the beaten path, but if you like that kind of thing, you're in for a treat! Big giant hug and thanks to Samantha and her family for showing this American (who REALLY needed a little relaxation time) Barbados' treasures: It's people and it's scenic beauty.

I'm a outdoor enthusiast and home for me is ultimately the countryside.
My husband Bernard and I started Ocean Echo Stables in 2004 and we have managed to carve out a very special place here where you can't help but feel close to nature and reconnect with yourself. The Irish love of horses was passed on to me by my mum at a very young age, and this has offered me my greatest sense of freedom.
I also love to travel and hike & swim and read lots and lots of books.
Our house is a lively one, including me and husband Bernard, three teenage girls and our cheerful three year old son.
Music is also a great passion of mine and reggae is the order of the day around here, not that I don't appreciated other genres of music.
