Brilliant as usual. Feels like home away from home and only a quick stroll to the most amazing beach!
What a wonderful place to stay. A home rather than a bach. Lionie made us feel very welcome and couldn't have been more helpful. The place had absolutely everything you would ever need. Can't recommend highly enough 10/10
Response from Owner
Hi Emily, Thanks for the great review. It was lovely to meet you and your parents, and I hope the next time they are over from the UK you all manage a return trip to the Barrier. You will always be welcome! Leonie.
This is a really lovely property - a home rather than just a bach! It's comfortable and relaxing and has a beautiful tropical garden at the front and a big grassy area with fruit trees at the back. Heaps of room. You can hear the waves on the beach from the house and a short walk takes you to the beautiful white sand beach - I think the nicest on the island. Jo was brilliant to deal with and our stay was completely trouble free. We've just stayed there for the second year running and will be heading back again next year. I highly recommend it.
