Check in to GIBBS GLADE COTTAGE & GARDEN STUDIOS. A great holiday spot, moments from both GIBBS and MULLINS BEACHES on the Platinum West Coast of BARBADOS, with a sparking pool and oversize deck with loungers. Various accommodation choices available including The Cottage, Pool and Palm Studios and The Cabin... THE COTTAGE, sleeps 3 in one kingsize and one single room. Open plan kitchen and living room opening onto a large veranda with dining. POOL STUDIO, sleeps 2 in two double beds. Kitchenette. Three sets of french windows lead onto the pool deck and veranda... inside/outside living at its very best. PALM STUDIO, sleeps 2 in one kingsize and one single bed. Kitchenette. Set slightly apart makes it a hit with the honeymooners. THE CABIN, sleeps 2 in one double bed. Designed with the single traveler in mind but works a treat for cosy couples looking for a clean space to lay their heads after a day at the beach, bar, restaurants... Please note, we are an entirely NON SMOKING property.

Having stayed here in 2019 it was fantastic to return. Karen and Toby are brilliant hosts - we book direct via their website, and they are very organised and great to deal with. Also super helpful during our stay - we greatly appreciated the late check out and room upgrade for the latter part of out stay- many thanks! The 4 units are all quite different, but kept at a high standard with nice furniture, bed linen, air con, kitchenette etc. It isn’t a hotel but perfect for the more independent traveller. The complimentary tea/ coffee/ milk/ beers/rum provided are very welcome after a long flight . The pool and grounds are just lovely. It’s a 2 minute walk to Mullins Beach, 5 minutes to Gibbs beach. For basics there is petrol station stocking bread, milk, beer Etc. and Speightown is a short bus ride and has a larger supermarket The local area has some great eating places nearby, many of them run by locals for a real taste of Barbados - try Adrian’s beach bar, CeCe’s or Reggies for Jerk pork/ chicken. There’s also a very stylish bar/restaurant- the Sea Shed which does lovely food and drink. Looking forward to returning in 2023

Just returned from two weeks staying at the Cottage. I have no hesitation in recommending the accommodation to future guests. The owners Karen and Toby are both approachable, professional and extremely helpful. It situated approximately 5minutes walk to Mullins Beach and approximately 10 minutes to Gibbs beach. Would recommend Tides for a ‘special’ meal and Zaccios for cheap and cheerful meal. We have already booked for next year!

Absolutely ‘first class’ from arrival to departure! Toby and Karen are not only perfect hosts, not intrusive, but on hand to chat and get tips for beaches or great evening venues. They added value without doubt to what has been a great beach oriented break, super chilled outcome! Facility, everything we hoped for and great value, with all your needs should you wish to self cater simply, or use it as a base to explore the local area as we did utilising the ‘reggie bus’ to find hidden treasure in the form of beaches and great eateries! Big shout out for ‘Little Bristol’ for its regular live music laced with rum punch, and a fab last night ( wish we found it earlier) at ‘The horny ram’ great live music and fab food. The last day complimentary late departure was the icing on the cake! Thank you for being such great hosts Toby & Karen.

Another amazing holiday where I was so well looked after. Highly recommended to stay here. That’s why I extended my stay! Toby and Karen pay fastidious attention to detail in ensuring the accommodation and attention to guests is paramount. Very clean rooms, with all that you need for your stay. Toby is constantly managing and maintaining the beautiful pool area and grounds. He is on hand but not overly in your space , very attentive to your needs.. offering gentle ideas and recommendations for local restaurants and attractions. I was truly well looked after, and as a solo traveller, this made me feel very secure. and safe. This is not my first stay and I suspect not my last!

In total there are four different accommodations, we were in The Cottage and Palm Studio. Both spotless, well appointed and everything in them worked as it should. Which is more surprising than it should be based on previous experience of accommodation throughout our travels. Setting itself really nice, Palm studio doesn’t really have pool view unless you walk along terrace to the pool studio but as you would be as quick just walking to pool not really much point. The cottage looks through a hedge screen to pool which offers some privacy without completely blocking view. So best of both worlds. We kind of lucked out as no one else staying while we stayed so we had run of the place. Pool itself really nice and like everything at Gibbs Glade spotless and well maintained. Whilst accommodation would merit return based on its own what made this even more special was owners Toby and Karen. Genuinely nice couple who were great at giving us hints and tips to help find places to go and to eat based on current COVID curfew rules. Coupled with fact nothing seemed too much bother when we spoke to them which just made things so much easier for us. Wouldn’t hesitate to return next time we’re in Barbados

We stayed here for 2 wonderful weeks in January. It was our first holiday to Barbados and we really hit the jackpot finding this super accomodation. The location is perfect for starters, being ideally situated between 2 beautiful but contrasting beaches. The property has a lovely private secluded feel and is so well done and maintained. It is super clean and comfortable and the owners Toby and Karen are the perfect hosts. We stayed in the cabin for the whole 2 weeks and it was ideal as we wanted to eat out most nights, although the convenience of a fridge, toaster, kettle etc was great for having breakfast or a light snack on the veranda. We cannot wait to return as this was one of the best holidays we have ever been on. The Bajan people and way of life is the perfect recipe for a relaxing memorable holiday and accommodation as good as this is the icing on the cake!!

We stayed here for 3 weeks and 3 days (the latter thanks to Storm Ciara making flying an uncomfortable prospect). This is our second visit and cannot fault the set up. Toby and Karen are wonderful hosts and a mine of useful local information on activities, beaches, where to eat etc. The accommodation and compound were immaculately clean. We spent 9 days in the Palm Studio and the remaining time ini the Cottage, being joined there in the last week by out daughter, son-in-law and twins aged two. The twins loved the pool and Gibbs beach a few minutes walk away. We also enjoyed the company of the other people staying there, many of whom were on their second visits.

Just returned from a 10 night stay at Gibbs Glade Cottage, the accommodation exceeded our expectations. The cottage was spotlessly clean, adequately equipped and very comfortable. Pool was lovely and as there are only 4 units it was never crowded. As mentioned in previous reviews the owners are very friendly and knowledgeable about restaurants and places of interest. I have no hesitation in recommending Gibbs Glade Cottages and Studios to other travellers, we certainly hope to visit again.

My wife and I stayed at Gibbs Glade Cottages for 14 nights and quite simply had our best ever holiday and experience. Karen and Toby, the owners, were exceptional for our entire stay and the help they gave was first class, nothing was too much trouble, and such nice people! Due to us booking fairly late, so limited availability, we stayed in their Palm Studio for 10 nights, Pool Studio 2 nights and Cabin for 2 nights all of which are a superb base with absolutely everything you need to be extremely comfortable. The pool is excellent with everything you need. The cleanliness is also excellent with an attention to detail we’ve never experienced, especially in hotels and apartment complexes. If you’re looking to stay on the west coast you’d be mad not to consider Gibbs Glade Cottages.

One week staying at the cottage, was a magical break. We have been returning to Barbados for a number of years, refining our accommodation needs each time. We have to say that we have hit the jackpot. The accommodation is clean, fresh, comfortable and welcoming. Toby and Karen were extraordinary hosts; friendly, helpful and did everything to make sure that you were getting the holiday you wanted. This is a little gem of accommodation with just a few properties around a pool, it is quiet, discrete and still only a stones throw form the Beach and walking distance to food and drink. A short bus ride and you are in either of the nearby towns. We are already planning for our return.
