“Simple, unpretentious & near the beach, but overpriced”

The reason I am giving Gemini House 3 stars is because I think it is way overpriced for what you get. Mind you -- I am fine with the simple accommodations, and actually quite liked it. But I felt the room with shared bathroom in this residential neighborhood was worth more like $50-60 per night, definitely not $110. I am guessing that Barbados and this area in particular (close to the airport and beach) can get these rates because of the number of visitors that come just for one night before traveling on to other smaller Caribbean islands via the airport. Here are more details on the Gemini House...

Gemini House is a one-story house in a residential neighborhood both close to the airport ($13 taxi ride) and just a 3 minute walk to the beach in the Inch Marlow section of Christ Church. I felt like I was walking into my aunt's rural rambler when I walked through the yard and up the steps into Gemini House.

Jeri, the co-owner, was a great host - very sweet and accommodating. The room was very simple and bare-bones - it had a queen bed with a closet and windows to the neighbor's with a nice breeze. My room shared a bathroom with one other person who seemed to be in the bathroom for an extra long time every time I needed to use it. The wireless worked great. Jeri made a nice and simple breakfast of mixed fruit, scones, juice and coffee.

Gemini House is about a 10 minute walk to the kite beach, which was very convenient for me as a kiteboarder. I walked to D'Action Beach and rented kiteboarding gear for 2 hours. There was also a mini mart along the way for simple edible necessities. Other than these amenities, there is nothing here in this area. There was one restaurant down the street by the beach that was pretty expensive and targeted to the guests that stayed at that little hotel. I understand there is a local bus that picks up just a block from Gemini House and drives along the beach toward Bridgetown but I did not take it. I would have liked to stay longer than one night but not sure I would have stayed at Gemini House for the $110 price.

How easy was it to book the property? How easy was key pickup/access to the property?

Overpriced? Anyone searching for accommodations in Barbados during February is unlikely to find anything in the $50-60 per night price range near the beach. $110. per night (including breakfast) during the peak of the winter season is VERY reasonable. Actually, I would not be able to keep our little inn open at your 1990 prices!
