“Beautiful breezy house - perfect location ”

We were fortunate to stay here recently. The location is really convenient. There is something amazing about landing on the island and being welcomed inside Zion House within 5 minutes! Swim suit on and refreshing drink within another 10 minutes! Beach side Dinner plans within another 10mins ! The house is on a private estate, so quiet, serene and breezy. Home from home with everything you need. To us it was zen style and decor a relaxed vibe. Feels island style and modern.

We followed the useful information pack provided by the owners and visited the close by Foul, Miami and Crane Beaches. We also liked Dove Beach a lot in Oistins entered via sea fans restaurant - loved lunch here. Plus midday happy hour. the area is easy to walk around to get meals and sunchairs on the beach. We highly recommend a sailing tour called "Good Times Too". They picked us up at Zion house and we drove to the west coast - a lovely drive and boarded the cataraman. The snorkelling was like jumping into an aquarium ! Turtles multi coloured fish and a shipwreck. The boat and service was luxurious. Zion house is well thought it even simple things like washing lines as you enter to hand your towels, house telephone, cell phones - to borrow - large fridge for bottles of water - as well as essentials like brilliant wifi, The info books/maps kitchen condiments for example seasonings and oil & sugar make all the difference. Lots of towels also.

The house managers Rosita & Michael took us to the supermarket on our fist day which was really kind and also dropped us to the Crane the next morning. We are early risers!

We made a hearty breakfast daily- and found cooked food easy to pick up road side or in supermarkets at the deli counter. We ate out when we wanted. Expericed some lovely sunsets. We returned to Crane and ate lunch at the Carriage and enjoyed the pool. We went there one evening for drinks and live music.
It's Just a few minutes by bus or taxi.

We got a car rental for a few days - good roads and easy to explore, we put on our navigation on the phone. Once you press GO whilst in wifi it doesn't use your data - even when you leave the wifi. ABC highway connects to most places and traffic always flowed. We did the Concorde Experience & visited the Sheraton mall - good
Shops and food court, also movie
theatre it's approx 15-20 mins minutes drive from Zion. We enjoyed Luna restaurant on Miami Beach ( this beach has free picnic benches so we took a take way Lunch from the villages supermarket on another day) All in all a wonderful time for couples or a family. We had teens with us & you know when they are super happy it means it must be good !

“Lovely, airy house in tranquil garden setting, very near beaches.”
Reviewed March 19, 2017 for a stay in December 2016

Zion House is very special, owned and run by caring people, Set in a large garden,it is a perfect place for a retreat but also a place to relax, or for children to run around. I went to paint so the setting was ideal.
It is very near a good supermarket, and buses to the seaside. It is in a quiet and friendly neighbourhood so you can feel part of island life. I can think of no better place to stay in Barbados. Heaven on Earth!

“A pretty, peaceful, airy home!”
Reviewed October 6, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Zion House is such a pretty, peaceful, airy home!
We enjoyed being in the house. In the mornings, we sat on the round balcony overlooking the pond and watched the monkeys. We saw half a dozen one morning; two with babies clinging to their undersides.

Other points of note about Zion House:

• It is in the quiet, southeast, so it feels more local and authentic.

• Close to the airport; great if your party isn’t all arriving on the same flight.

• Access to the beautiful beaches of the east coast: Foul Bay, Crane, Bathsheba.

• The house is unique, attractively designed; plus we got to meet the architect who lives next door.

• Comfortable beds: we appreciated the quality mattresses and the mosquito netting.

• The house is green: no a/c or ceiling fans. The solar-heated water was plentiful. There is a washing machine and a covered clothes line. There are recycling bins and a compost box.

• The kitchen is well-equipped; we prepared many of our own meals from local produce.

• For nice meals out there are places a 20 minute drive or less away: the Crane Resort for Sunday buffet, Oistins for fish fry, and St Lawerence Gap for cocktails and fun.

Liked best: Everything you need is basically stocked because of guests who leave behind what they don't use. Next time, I will pack much lighter!
Liked least: Though you can see the ocean, there really isn't a grand ocean view. However, bikes are provided or a short walk gets you there.

“Peace at Last”
Reviewed April 8, 2014 for a stay in January 2014

I started the year at Zion House along with 5 other women on a glorious nurturing Yoga retreat. I especially enjoyed the daily practice on the deck and nurturing workshops in this harmonious, uplifting space. The second week, relaxed, nurtured and replenished from the workshops, the yoga but predominantly from the energy of the house, my husband joined me and we stayed alone in this idyllic space. It’s open plan living space was the43 perfect conductor of the Barbados breeze which piped gently through the house. We ate fresh fruits and vegetables from the market and we read, sunbathed, walked, or simply lounged in the house listening to music and getting to know each other again. We use public transport most of the week – which was so easy from this location - and enjoyed exploring this delightfully laid-back island. And whist most of the time we were content to eat at home, the occasional adventures into nearby towns to find fish or lobster we a real treat. I think every year should start this way. There is definitely a healing presence in Zion House. Thank you.

“Perfect vacation villa for families.”
Reviewed February 19, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

We're a family with 3 small children who stayed in Zion House for 6 days. The house is spacious and bright and placed in a quiet neighborhood at the end of a road.
There are no AC or fans, but the design of the house makes these unnecessary as a breeze is always passing through the house if you open a few windows. On this trip we spent 7 weeks in the Caribbean and this was the first place where we didn't get any mosquito bites - perfect.
It's a 5 minute walk to the supermarket and 20 minutes to the nearby beach. If you have small children, Miami beach is better, as the waves there are relatively small. If you want to do sightseeing on Barbados, you'll either need a car, or use the local buses, which are actually quiet reliable.
