“This was one of the most beautiful vacations that we've been on. This property was absolutely perfect for a family. It had AC, we felt safe, it was clean and beautifully decorated and was an easy walk to the beach and the sunset beach club. We think about this home often & would love to return in the future. Thank you Austin and Anne-Marie for the beautiful stay.”
Anne Marie's reviewsAs a host (7)
“Anne Marie and Austin were excellent hosts and I would highly recommend them to you. The house is lovely with everything you need for a home to home experience. Ideally situated in Hole Town which I hadn't realised it is one of the best areas on the island with stunning beeches, a fantastic choice of restaurants, some cute shops and a shopping complex. The private members pool is stunning with loungers and facilities. A fantastic memory..... sitting on the lounger looking out to sea.......... There are plenty of other memories to be made by going on some of the excursions that are on offer. 1. Catamaran cruise - 3 or 5 hours. Great fun snorkeling seeing the turtles and the ship wrecks. With as much booze as you can drink! 2. Harbor Lights Funny, funny evening offering the best of Barbados entertainment..ooooo... yep! As much as you can drink! 3. Walk around BridgeTown with a guide introducing you to local produce - OK 3. Oistins WOW See Barbados as it is! Tens of restaurants offering their local fish produce. Best fish my husband has ever had! 4. Island Safari - there are a couple of types of safari - we chose the crazy one travelling in a no-sides kind of truck. Good fun going off road and the driver making it safe/scary! Great for kids! There is another type that takes you to more of the key attractions which may be preferable The beeches are spectacular all around the island and my husband and boys spent most afternoons snorkeling Be sure to get to the beech fronts in time to see some of the most amazing sunsets on the planet! Thanking Austin and Anne Marie for letting us use your beautiful home and making our holiday so enjoyable Hope to be back!”
“Anne and Austin have a beautiful home in Barbados and are great hosts! Purty Loft is well equipped (everything you could possibly need right down to books and board games for a rainy day). Their home is tastefully decorated with a beach house theme and just a 5-minute walk from Holetown beach. We arrived to a lovely welcome note with lots of great tips on what to do in the area, as well as a fresh loaf of Bajan banana bread. Absolutely delicious. Both bedrooms are large with ensuite bathrooms. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. If you’re heading to Barbados we recommend you get in touch with them to see if their home is available.”
“Wow! What an incredible holiday we have just had. From the very first communication with the UBER helpful and informative Anne Marie to the moment we (very reluctantly) said goodbye to her stunningly styled home we really could not have asked for more. The super cute (New England type) house set in lovely gardens is just a (very pleasant) walk from the shops, cafes, beaches and was really well equipped. The house was spotless, beds really comfy with crisp white bedding and fabulous airy covered patio/terrace to chill out on in the evening ir enjoy and alfresco breakfast. Barbados was superb - so safe with lovely local people, great food, beautiful clean beaches and the sunsets are something else! Thank you so much Anne Marie for sharing your beautiful home with us. It was magical and I can't recommend it highly enough!”
“We loved staying here. The property is located so walk to many local attractions. It was a great base. The place was clean and very quaint. Anne Marie was very responsive. We would go back again.”
“This was our first direct swap here on Love Home Swap, and it really was perfection!!! Thank you Anne Marie for making it happen for us, and thank you Austin for meeting us on arrival and giving us the comprehensive tour. Your home is beautiful, stylishly decorated, perfectly situated and has the most well equipped kitchen I've found anywhere. This was my first trip to Barbados an now I am love with the island. We look forward to returning your hospitality when you visit us in July. 5 stars without a doubt! ”
“My husband and I spent a week at Annemarie's house. We were made very welcome from the first moment and had the best time ever. The house is beautiful and extremely clean. We had everything we needed including the best avocados from the garden. The house is comfortable and the surroundings are very quiet. It is only 5 minutes from the beach. We could use the pool at the beach club which was absolutely perfect for us. The western coast of Barbados is great, fabolous beaches and lovely restaurants. We would definitely go back if we had a chance. ”
Where is it?
The neighbourhood, Sunset Crest, is a mature, quiet and safe community in Holetown, one of the four main towns in Barbados. If you walk out the door and head towards the water you will find coffee shops, restaurants (from family casual to more formal and glitzy), along with the fruit vendors at the end of the road, the medical facility, supermarket, boutiques and more.
If you head inland you will wander into the shaded streets of Sandy Lane, where you can meander among the homes of the rich and famous!
