We spent 5 nights at the Bajan Breeze and it was exactly what we were looking for. The en-suite room was excellent and Karen the owner couldn't have been more helpful. Karen arranged car hire for us which we had for the 5 days and we went to different parts of the island every day. The location of the guest house was also great as we were pretty central to see everything. Within 30mins or so you could be at each end of the island - north south east and west. There was a huge supermarket about 5 mins by car where we got provisions for breakfast/picnics. There was also a shopping centre about 5 mins away with some nice luxury goods - jewellery, handbags and swim gear - we didnt go shopping until the last day so having this area closeby meant we didnt have to make a special trip to Bridgetown. There were also plenty of restaurants within 10 minutes drive and a particularly good coffee shop and ice cream parlour. The scenery is different all around the island. The mid and north east coast is quite rugged where strong currents make it not really suitable for swimming but a paradise for surfers. The whole of the west coast in comparison was very safe for swimming with lots of beautiful beaches and of course beautiful sunsets. In the far north we visited caves and underground pools and rock formation type windows that look out to the sea where we were told Billy Ocean recorded one of his videos. In the mid north we visited more caves - this time instead of walking down stairs there was a little electric train which takes you down to see amazing stalactites and stalagmites. Also mid island about 25 minutes from the guest house was the pottery - lovely colourful pieces - there is also a gallery, coffee bar and fine gift shop here. Oistins fish market was about 15 mins. All the locals were really friendly and helpful. All places on the main routes had regular bus services but having the car just meant we could visit places off the beaten track with hardly any tourists and see the real Barbados, deserted beaches, mid island hills and countryside/ farmland and very cute painted wooden houses. We also visited sugar cane factories and got some sugar cane to taste. We also went to a plantation house concert which was amazing. We had done some research on the internet before going to find out what was going on in the area and booked this concert in advance. We thoroughly enjoyed our trip and will return to the Bajan Breeze guest house without hesitation. Our stay was really great and made all the more enjoyable by the fantastic hostess Karen.
