Renovated Waterfront Property ~ 2 bedbroom, 1 1/2 bathThis house is 100 feet from a cliff overlooking the southeast Atlantic coast of tropical Barbados in the eastern Caribbean. There is excellent reception for HAM radio operators. The two bedrooms both have kingsize beds, sinks, and 6-foot-wide windows that get a continuous ocean breeze (meaning NO mosquitos).

Concrete steps lead down to it (a 2-minute walk). There is a natural swimming pool, protected from the waves by a line of rocks, perfect for swimming at mid-tide. This house was renovated in 2010. It has all new plumbing, wiring, windows, roof, bathroom, kitchen, tiling, ceilings, painting inside and out, and more. The furniture is new or antique and original Caribbean art hangs on the walls. All linen is supplied and the kitchen is fully furnished (wine glasses, dishes, small appliances, etc). Solar panels provide very hot water. You will feel you are in a private home rather than a bare-bones rental cottage.

LocationBarbados is a Caribbean island that is located approximately 13N latitude and 59W longitude. The house is in a very quiet area with no traffic. There are a few cows and white egrets in the field beyond the property wall. With no nearby streetlights, you can enjoy the brilliant stars overhead at night. It is surrounded nearby by a safe, middle-class neighborhood of mostly new homes owned by both locals and expats. It is on the cliff just north of the historic Sam Lord's Castle and south of Harry Smith mansion ruins. It is a great location for photography walks and beach combing. Walk along the wilderness cliff with steps down to different remote beaches in coves with palm trees surrounded by cliffs. The bus stop is a five-minute walk from the house. It is a ten-minute drive to the grocery store, banks, post office, video store, several restaurants, and other shops. Barbados is surrounded with white sand beaches. Explore a different one every day. Drive 25 minutes to popular south coast tourist beaches and nightlife or 40 minutes to up-market west coast beaches with flat water, water sports, restaurants, and nightlife. Barbados is 22 miles long with 280,000 people. There's lots to do and see; you'll hardly get your first book read!
Great Value for MoneyBecause this house is located on the Atlantic side, in a less touristy area, you get great value for your money. If it were on the west coast of Barbados, it would rent for about three times as much. No location is more than 60 minutes by car. Buses go everywhere.
