Stay here. If you want an authentic Bajan beach house right on the beach with a fabulous veranda then this place ticks all the boxes. We have had a wonderful 9 days in, I believe, one of the best spots on the island. The house is absolutely true to the pictures if not better. It's not flash but perfect as a beach house with a sensational veranda where you will spend most of your time. The traffic noise is not imposing but for the front bedroom could be a problem for light sleepers. It never disturbed our family and is a simple fact of life on the west coast where the main road runs right along the seafront. We just loved everything about this place. Snorkelling is superb, the beach quiet and away from all the umbrellas and sun loungers. Mullins though is a short walk as are some local bars and some lovely restaurants in the quieter and less touristy area of Speightstown. We are sad to leave but will look no further than this fabulous spot for our next holiday in Barbados.

Blueshells is a beautiful house on the beach. The views are stunning, and we enjoyed breakfast on the balcony every morning. The water right outside the house is great for a quick dip, though you should also check out Gibbs Bay just round the corner to the north -- just walk along the beach. If you want to keep everything locked up you'll find public access to the beach from the road by Wanda's on the beach, a local beach bar serving home-cooked food and beer. Michele was a great host, she met us when we arrived at the property and showed us where everything was and how to work the gas BBQ outside. She also gave us some great tips of where to eat and grab a beer locally. She promptly answered any queries we had during our stay and arranged a taxi for us from the airport to the property. We would recommend staying here as it is in a quieter part of the island with easy access to both Speightstown and Holetown by using the local buses. We can't wait to return and stay again - thank you Michele and Pia!

Great hosts, rear facing bedroom and sheltered deck are a little piece of paradise. The road facing second bedroom has an excellent bathroom, but earplugs are needed for sleeping. Triple glazed windows would transform this bedroom. Everything else is near perfect.

BBQ, deck, beach…chill! A wonderfully relaxing place. We had a week in this older property that is right on the beach. We found Michele and Pia helpful with good communications. They arranged for us to pick up the keys at the airport hire car counter which was very handy. You will need a car as the 24 gas station and supermarkets are a bit too far to walk. The beach is wonderful and the snorkel gear was great to explore the shoal just off the beach. The internet speed as around 20mbs. The pictures of the property are accurate. We’re working out when we can go back...which should tell you everything you need to know.

We loved the location of the house, right on the water, on a quiet beach and close to many restaurants and shops. Our favourite thing was going for a morning swim just after breakfast and starting every day like that. Afternoons were quiet and lazy on the deck, lounging in the hammock and swimming again. The beach is quiet and oftentimes we were the only ones in the water. That was absolutely wonderful. There are also great beaches nearby with restaurants in case you want to switch things up. The second bedroom is quite noisy from the traffic on the street, but our girls (10 months and 5 years) were so tired at the end of the day that they slept right through it and didn't complain once. We spent most of our time on the deck anyway. We loved having a washer and drier and being able to shower outside after swimming. It was a great place and we would definitely stay at Michele and Pia's again or in Reeds Bay if the property was occupied.

Our hosts were friendly and welcoming. Good communication, especially as we were delayed due to storm. Any issues were promptly dealt with and we were very satisfied. Fabulous beachfront location. Snorkel off the beach and take swim shoes as there are some rocks in places. We liked the fact that there were no hotels nearby so we only shared the beach with the fishermen. Good air conditioning in the home. Would rent again.
