The Bajan Breeze was ideal for us, an excellent value on a sometimes expensive island. Our large, clean room had a double bed; a wall air conditioner for warm nights; large casement windows to catch the afternoon and evening breezes; a small, attractive, modern bathroom (shower); chest/dresser, armoire, and bedside tables; an electric tea kettle; tea bags, condiments, dishes, and utensils; and a small refrigerator. There's a microwave oven and dining table in the cozy common area, along with sofas and a library of tourist guides and secondhand books.
A successful English entrepreneur who relocated to Barbados after visiting many times, proprietor Karen was a perfect, expert hostess—forthcoming and helpful, respectfully absent, or charmingly sociable according to what we needed at any moment.
When we travel in the Caribbean we enjoy staying in small hotels or guest houses that serve business people as well as tourists. The evening we arrived at Bajan Breeze, Karen was chatting on the front porch with another guest, a university lecturer from Trinidad who was consulting at the OAS offices across the street.
This is a primarily residential neighborhood just off a two-lane arterial road, which you cross (easily) to get to the beach. As other reviewers have mentioned, there are plenty of restaurants within walking distance with different cuisines and prices. Trust Karen to guide you. The lovely new (at the time of our stay) tea shop on the corner offers tea, coffee, pastries, and Indian-influenced sandwiches from morning until about 5:00 p.m.
Karen arranged for a taxi to pick us up at the airport when we arrived. We were so happy and impressed with our driver that we contracted with him (at a very reasonable price) to drive us around the island one afternoon -- a local’s eye-view of business, tourism, and daily life on Barbados. It was great fun and a very informative overview for this, our first, visit.
Three exceedingly well-behaved small dogs also reside at Bajan Breeze, confined to Karen's quarters at the back of the house. I was delighted to meet them, but they don't usually socialize with guests and are not allowed in the guest rooms. If you're very allergic, though, you may want to take care.
