The best testimony to our experience is that we have spent our vacation at Olivia’s place for the fourth time. Plombagine Cottage is as described, very clean and superbly located – right on the ocean front. It was fully prepared for our arrival. Very friendly neighborhood, with Smitty, host’s brother, being a great help and … Continue reading “Peter and Margaret, Canada”

Amazing view from the huge balcony. Very clean and spacious cottage. Pamela was waiting for us even though our arrival was late.

The cottage is right on … Continue reading “Eleanor, UK”

Outstanding Cottage!

Beautiful cottage/beachfront villa with a decorative interior, felt like home! Was lucky enough on the first night to see a turtle come ashore to lay. For future reference, all guests should be courteous and careful to not disturb the turtles in their natural habitat. Also felt very safe in this area and the immediate locals are so friendly! Enjoy!


Response from PLOMBAGINE

Hi Alex,

Thank you for your review. It is so important that people respect our marine life and not try to catch the turtles or disturb them when they are laying. We are glad that you were able to enjoy this experience during your stay at Plombagine Cottage! 😀



A Hidden Gem

I have been coming here with my family almost every year for the last eight years, it almost feels like a second home to me! Olivia and her family are delightful. Olivia is such a good-natured person and is the best host ever. She really wants you to have the best time possible. Everything has already been said about friendly Barbados and this little Bajan cottage but I reiterate that, in my opinion, the location is absolutely unbeatable at any price. I swear it’s the best beach and the best views on the island. I can spend hours just looking out and enjoying the view and the sunsets and listening to the waves, or walking on the beautiful pristine beach. If you like fancy resorts it probably wouldn’t appeal but if you love authentic island living and enjoy being away from the crowds, this is the place for you. Thank you, Olivia, see you next year!

To say that our stay at Plombagine Cottage was fantastic is an understatement. Words cannot describe the tremendous comfort, relaxation and enjoyment that we derived from this trip. Plombagine Cottage is truly exceptional.

The house has everything, from beach towels and beach chairs, to a fully equipped kitchen with every utensil and culinary gadget you can possibly imagine. There is also a BBQ grill which we made good use of on several occasions during our stay.

In addition, the beach in front of the cottage is absolutely amazing! We were able to swim there, snorkel, bask in the sun and even take long walks. In addition, the water was so calm and warm that we did not want to leave the beach. In fact, we spent most of our time in the water.

Last but not least, the location itself is perfect. It is convenient to stores, nightlife and shopping. There are several restaurants within walking distance, some can even be accessed along the beach, which makes a stop for a quick refreshment a breeze.

Finally, Olivia called during our stay to say hello. Pam and Smitty were around just to make sure that everything went smoothly. We have found our favourite place to stay in the entire Caribbean and will definitely be returning.
