At the risk of sounding kind of snooty, I think our trip to Barbuda really hit home for us when we stopped in Antigua for a day on the way home from our 10-day stay at Barbuda Cottages. We had some time to kill before our plane left from Antigua bound for home, so we were taken to one of... More

If this destination is not on your bucket list.....it needs to be! We travelled with one other couple Feb 13 to 23rd and stayed in the 3 bedroom Cottage. It was by far an experience of a lifetime I will not forget! The Cottage, the beach, the Village, the people - everything was beyond amazing! Oh and Richie, I cannot... More

We’ve been to many Caribbean Islands, but Barbuda is the first place that we’ve returned to because of its natural beauty, privacy and seclusion. It is a true vacation. We also returned to stay in the three bedroom cottage at Barbuda Cottages and it was perfect. The cottage is fully equipped, charming and extremely comfortable. The view and proximity to... More

Really good location for Barbuda. The only alternative is too luxurious and more expensive hotels. The cottages are built to really good standard but also have a character of the place. Kelcina is helpful and caring Highly recommended and Barbuda is awesome, almost nothing to do, but it's unspoiled and has staggering beaches, so it is a great stay for... More

Just returned from Barbuda and if want to stay in a place that feels like home, stay here with Kelcina. The cottages are lovely. The location is perfect - next to the best place to eat, Uncle Ruddy's and a few minutes from my favorite of beaches - Princess Diana. So for convenience, atmosphere, beauty and friendliness, this is the... More

You simply won't find a better place to stay in Barbuda. It's beautiful, well equipped, right on the ocean in a great place for snorkeling, a short drive from town. I stayed here for a week and wish I could have stayed forever.

Getting there can be challenging but well worth the journey. The cottage is nicely appointed and decorated. Feels like your at a friends cottage. Kelcina is super friendly and helpful. We ate supper at uncle rhoddy's every night delish and he serves a mean rum punch. You feel like you are the only people on the island it is very... More

My husband and I are just back from a fabulous trip to Barbuda and a lovely stay at Barbuda Cottage. Kelcina, the owner, is a gracious hostess who will welcome you to this beautiful island. She and her husband planned and built this quiet, self-sustaining bit of paradise. Don’t be fooled by “cottage”. This is a 3 bedroom house that... More
