It was a real pleasure to stay in Ferida's cottage. She is very friendly and cannot do enough for you. We had access to the pool which my daughter loved and also rented a car from Ferida which was great to explore the local area and the island. On the day we arrived she took us to the supermarket to get supplies and was a wealth of knowledge about where to go and what to do on the island. A chilled out, great experience in a beautiful Bajan home. Thanks Ferida!

Not sure I can put into words how fabulous this place is! Our first experience of Airbnb and nothing will top this! Chatted to Ferida from the day we booked and felt like best friends by the time we arrived! Nothing is too much trouble for Ferida and Vic. The cottage is amazing - clean and well equipped with everything you need. We combined eating out with cooking for ourselves and enjoyed the many hints and tips about how to cook Bajan style from Ferida. She and Vic took us to the market and supermarket and showed us what to buy and told us how to cook it all - could not have asked for more and could not have met kinder people! Took all their advice about where to visit and eat and had some amazing experiences that we'd have missed if we'd just gone for what we'd found on Trip Advisor. Take all their advice and you'll have the real Bajan experience :-) Be warned though - Ferida can shop!!! The cottage is truly amazing. The main bedroom is air-conditioned and great for a cool night - but I slept on the veranda most nights and woke up to find myself sunbathing at 7 am! The pool is clean and private and you have it to yourselves, apart from the occasional bird that dips in to cool down! Love love love Barbados - and Ferida and her wonderful family just make you want to move here. Can't wait to come back next year :-) Thank you Ferida xxx

This is a gem in barbados self catering, dont be dissapointed that it is not on the beach you are within a five minute walk to all the bus routes to the best beaches in barbados, why stay on one beach when you can visit them all, the pool is fantastic and hiring a car is easy if you wish, however walking around this area to the bus stops is safe and a cab up from bridgetown is only 20 b/d, this cottage gives the base to see the true barbados, enjoy. Fereda and her staff are fantastic and very helpful if you want any info where to go and how to get there etc. Be adventurous, travel all over the island from a fabulous base.

We stayed in Ferida's cottage for 5 nights. Ferida's a great host, who helped us settle in, and gave us lots of guidance on what we could do during our stay. We would highly recommend anyone who comes to Barbados to stay in Ferida's cottage.

5 star accommodation with 10 star hosts! I was so lucky to stay at Ferida's gorgeous cottage and would have stayed longer if hadn't been booked out! The cottage itself is beautifully furnished, spotlessly clean and comfortable and set in stunning surroundings with a exquisite pool area and a gym to boot. Even better, I got to have the beautiful Ferida and her lovely family as neighbours! They couldn't have been more warm and welcoming, and went out of their way to make my stay comfortable and ensure that I, as a solo traveller, had everything I needed. As well as the great conversations, Ferida kindly gave me a tour of the area, took me to the supermarket and a colourful visit to the farmer's market in Bridgetown. With regards to location, the cottage is a short walk away from one of the best beaches in Barbados: Carlisle Beach and also Bridgetown. There's a bus service too if walking isn't your thing. I couldn't recommend Ferida and her cottage more highly and I can't wait to return to this slice of paradise!

Response from Ferida Samad:
Dearest Beth, Thank you for your wonderful 5 STAR review and feedback, that was very sweet of you, and it was my pleasure having you and Lori. As Beth Mentioned - My car is available at an affordable rate - which she Booked from Home - driving is on the Left side of the road ... If you are not used to this it can seem "Crazy" but for the local left handed drivers its easy as pie. I have a GPS for your convenience. There are Many Buses however, that can take you to the south and West coasts of the island , and in Bridgetown (which is a walk or 5 min bus away) you can get a bus to all the other parts of the island. The Beach is a walk away, but for the quicker option Charline Taxi is just a call away... Taxi, Bus or My sweet little Suzuki Swift - you will be on the go in Paradise. Another Option ? Yes !!! Hang out on the patio with me sipping tea... smile

My name is Ferida-your host while on holiday here in Barbados and owner of this unique property set on one acre of land. I absolutely love cooking but my real passion is baking. I'm 'bajan'. That's what barbadians call each other. I would love to introduce you to this paradise…
