Property Details

Updated: Dec 4, 2014
Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Detached Unit, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-7)in main apt. + an

Experience Caribbean living at its best, in beachfront family-friendly accommodation designed to house four persons in two bedrooms with an extra person in a folding cot.

In addition our one-bedroom annex can house an additional two persons and is fully equipped with the same amenities as the beachfront cottage. Both the cottage and apartment have one tasteful bathroom each.

OUR ANNEX IS PRICED SEPARATELY :Summer(April 15 to Dec 14) US$85/nt Winter (Dec 15 to April 14) US$110/nt.

Studio annex is coming on stream in December/14. Enquire about this cheaper alternative.

All of the hot water is solar heated.

We offer a tropical experience with fantastic views of the ocean. You may dine on fresh fish from our barbecue while sitting in the patio or garden, where your privacy is maintained by lush local shrubs, or you may swim with the turtles and reef fish just outside our gates. These gates are also useful for containing small children while you read or just nap.

Guests can surf the internet using free wireless internet access while enjoying the Caribbean flavour of the room interiors each of which has its own unique colourful ambiance, or sip blended cocktails on the verandah while watching the sun go down. In addition, we are an ideal location for small intimate affairs like weddings or birthday parties which can be held on the property as well as on the beach. This is strictly for resident guests and we do not offer catering which would have to be outsourced.

Our location is ideal if you want to explore either in public or rented transportation. We have parking for eight cars, and taxis stations are just 2 minutes away. Our assistant is available in our onsite office to respond to guest enquiries and needs from Monday to Friday, pointing guests to local events that may not be advertised in tourist brochures.

We also have family connections in an island 45 minutes away by plane where you can take a day trip and an island tour, especially if your stay with us is extended. Please feel free to enquire about travelling to our sister islands for a day or so.

If your budget is really under pressure we offer ways to ease you such as offering a reduced price for 'fan cooled only' or 'no maid/one day maid service'. Are you interested in no-frills accommodation in a studio setting at an even lower price? Then we will be able to help you in the near future.

Please also let us know your particular interests so we can point you to affordable local experiences.

About the Owner

When I constructed this property I tried to keep its architecture as true to the area as possible so that guests would feel that they were indeed getting an authentic experience.

As a person who is proud of my Caribbean heritage, I wanted a place where all of my guests would feel as comfortable as though they were in their own homes and enjoy all of the facilities our island has to offer.

Whether you are a child or adult, I welcome you.

Another wonderful visit

  • 4 of 5
We found this little gem a number of years ago. I am reluctant to do a great review because I want to keep it a secret, but that isn't fair to Donna and Ann. Nice open living and kitchen area. just enough dishes, etc. for four people. We have made friends with a few locals. If you ask for "Spider" on the beach he can provide a great local lunch or dinner. You can walk in either direction on the beach and stop at hotels to have a drink or a meal. You can not beat the location, we consider Payne's Bay as one of the best beaches in Barbados. I forgot to mention we have been traveling here since our honeymoon in 1970.

Best time EVER!!!

  • 5 of 5
I was in the studio apt. for 2 weeks. It is just as pictured, clean, comfy, and quaint. Donna and Ann are super sweet. Locals are very nice. The Yellow Bus is a thrill ride, so for only $1 US, you can go most anywhere and experience a major thrill. Walking distance to most everything, fish market is great with a fabulous selection. Will definitely be back!

Authentic Caribbean Hospitality

  • 4 of 5
Many thanks to Anna and Donna for hosting us during the Xmas season. Annabelle's Cottage was perfect for some much needed relaxation and restoration. Ideally situated on Payne's Bay, one has easy access to restaurants and recreation on foot or by bus with no car needed. And of course, the sea is literally steps away. If simplicity and authenticity are to your tastes, Annabelle's is a little slice of heaven.

Nice Cottage on Fabulous Beach

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our one week stay at Annabelle's Cottage. The location is excellent on beautiful Paynes Bay beach, with good swimming and the opportunity to snorkel with turtles. The house was very clean and equipped with all the basics, including a decent kitchen. The staff were very accommodating and provided helpful info when we checked in.

This is not a luxury property, and it could benefit from a fresh coat of paint inside plus minor repairs, but the views from the veranda and the location make up for this. Several restaurant options nearby, plus it's possible to walk to the SuperCentre grocery in Holetown and then take the bus back for $2 Bd. We did not feel the need for a rental car when we were here.

If you're looking for quality beach hangout time, Annabelle's is a great option.

Unforgettable Sunsets!

  • 5 of 5
Breakfast on the roof deck every morning. Drinks on the beach to watch the sunset every evening. Waking to the sounds of the locals going about their day.Singing, laughing and chatting as they do. Donna in the boutique downstairs always happy to help in anyway. Neat Barbadian style loft apt with high ceilings and loads of character. Small but perfectly formed. Ann the lovely owner friendly and very helpful dropped me off at the local supermarket to stock up on my first day. Walk down the side gate to paradise! Paynes Bay in my opinion the nicest beach in the Parish. Dine in style or on a shoestring it's all there for you. Mr Vics a 2 min walk for dinner or just drinks and he has music on Thursday evenings. Salmon burgers and rum punch on the beach :) A 15-20 min trip to Bridgetown...love the yellow buses!! Small Cat cruises is a must with captain Charlie. Would I return? In a heartbeat. Thank you Ann, Donna and Barbados for being so enchanting!
As a sole female traveller I felt very safe comfortable and completely at home.

Excellent Beach Cottage

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here five nights in May 2012 and loved every minute. We had the upstairs one bedroom unit which was very clean and comfortable for two people. The unit is right on a stunning beach. The beach is beautiful and you can snorkel with the turtles directly in front of Annabelles. Everyone we met was very friendly and helpful. The buses run frequently right in front of the apartment and only cost $2 BBD per person. I highly recommend this place.
