“Amazing Place - Close to Beach, Great Value, Nice People”
Reviewed July 1, 2011

Usually, I would write a long story but I remember reading these reviews and wanted something straight to the point -- so here you go:

-close to a gorgeous beach (literally 30 steps from the porch)
-equipped kitchen
-comfortable rooms
-pretty garden areas
-island tour (not touristy)
-outdoor seating
-safes
-free wifi and telephone
-closets
-weekly maids
-hot/cold water bathrooms (private)
-near supermarkets
-near restaurants (perfect distance)
-near #1 area in Barbados (St. Gap) -- but no noise at al
-nice owner: Brigitte -- very trustworthy and knows the island like the back of her hand

My length of stay was 6 days. I could not have asked for more. You won't regret it.

Room Tip: Book in advance! Skype with Brigitte.

“A perfect location. A very nice old house, comfortable and cosy, just a few steps away from the beautiful beach, not far to walk to "The Gap", where lots of restaurants and bars are located. Supermarkets are in walking distance aswell. The owners can arrange several activities like surfing, diving or an island roundtrip - so all in all, there's everything you want and need!

My bf & I stayed here and liked it very much. Simple rooms, clean, no problems, across the street from the beach, close to all the attractions of bridgetown, gap, easy bus access, nice porch to sit on, nice garden, internet, reasonable price. Attracted a good blend of travellers, mostly canadian and european, a couple of partiers but they also kept it out of the house. I thought it was a nice communal place to stay, we could cook and save money, and we enjoyed everyone. Brigitte and Doreen the manager & housekeeper keep it well-tended. I would get private bathroom unless you are in the student zone. There are a couple of small apartments attached also if you want more privacy. What more do you really need?

We stayed in this property for two weeks and it truly was wonderful. The location is right on the beach-one of the best calm-water beaches in the Carribbean. The beach is called Worthing. You can breakfast on the porch and view the wonderful beach. Brigette, the proprietor, is of great help to her guests. We stayed in the studio apartment and could cook breakfast, lunch or dinner. We also were in walking distances to two grocery stores and numerous restaurants. The bus stop was only five minures away and because of it's easy access renting a car was unnecessary.

Stay at that guesthouse was really nice! Everything was perfect, you have everything you need,nice rooms with own baths,good equiped kitchen etc.House is located in the safety, nice area, very close to the beautiful beach (30 meters) so you can swim in the sea even before breakfest:-). It is also only 5 min walking from the nightlife area in St.Lawrence Gap.I really recomend that place!Book it and enjoy your Bajan Holidays!

Cleverdale is a cute house that is literally across the street from one of the most beautiful beaches in Barbados. Worthing Beach is clean, with powdery white sand, mild waves (great for kids, and people like me who aren't terribly strong swimmers), turtles, beach chair/umbrella rental ($10 US for two chairs and an umbrella), and very few people. Unlike the West coast, no one comes by to bug you/sell crap.
The house: we stayed in a room in the house the first night, and in a studio for the next 7 nights. The room was nice, albeit basic. Very clean. The bathroom was also very clean and not shared (we weren't sure if it was shared or not before we arrived), and the water pressure in the shower was fantastic. The bed was really two twin beds pushed together, but we both slept really well, and in the studio, the bed was enormous and very comfortable. The house has a big living room and a big kitchen as common space, and it never felt crowded or loud, although we didn't go to sleep very early.
The studio is great--spacious, too. There is a TV and phone, although we never watched TV. A ceiling fan and a floor fan to keep the bugs away (there are mosquitoes, but not nearly as many as other islands where we've stayed), and the kitchen is plenty big enough to cook for two people.
The house has a yard with chairs, and a big wrap-around porch where we all sat outside drinking cocktails in the evening. The neighborhood felt very safe, but I would still recommend locking up your stuff at all times. The beach is right across the street, there is a beach bar/restaurant a block away, and several other bars/restaurants within 2-3 blocks. There is a big supermarket about 4 blocks away, and a smaller one about 3 blocks away. The big supermarket is about the same price as markets in the States, lots of imported items...honestly you could probably get whatever you wanted there. We tried to buy local as much as possible, which made things a bit cheaper.
Brigitte, who runs the guesthouse and several others on the island, is very knowledgeable and spent a lot of time with us to explain how the island works and where to go and we heard her island tour was great.
Bottom line: this house is very relaxed, and perfect for people who want to sit on the beach, go surfing nearby, or go on all of the tours and stay really active, but not spend a fortune on lodging. There is ample parking around the neighborhood for a rental car, but we took minibuses the entire time--they run on the main road, which is one block away from the house, and are $2 Barbadian (about $1 US) each way, and would highly recommend them.
Brigitte helped us with everything we needed, including booking a reliable taxi to take us to the airport at 5am the day we left.

I thought I'd stay 3 days, and ended up staying a 2 weeks. This is quite possibly the best value in Barbados. Great service, clean accommodations, convenient access to town, and most importantly, right on the beach. No need to keep looking, book the Cleverdale.
