I had a very enjoyable week with Christy and Victor. They are amazing hosts and never tire of providing advice and assistance. Their home is delightful and comfortable, and has easy access to many of Barbados's attractions. It's only a quick walk to buses, or a 5 minute drive to Carlisle Bay, 10 minutes to St Lawrence Gap and south coast. They are vegan/vegetarian and made it fun to explore their world of food with fantastic breakfasts and treats, largely made from things they grow in their organic garden. They took me and other guests to some of their favourite watering holes and social attractions which was very enjoyable. Their knowledge of Barbados and Bajan culture was such a nice complement to what could otherwise be quite a passive experience. Treat yourself to a week or more staying with this great couple, and let them treat you like an honoured guest.
My daughter chose the Chi Centre for our trip to Bridgetown, Barbados to celebrate her 20th birthday, We arrived a day early. Our host was very accommodating making sure we were met at the airport and delivered safely to the Chi Centre in the middle of the night. The next morning we woke to the delightful sounds of nature (parrots and monkeys) and a delicious tropical breakfast. We loved walking in Bridgetown and felt very safe in the upscale neighbor were the Chi Centre is located. Christy organized sight-seeing trips to St. Nicholas Abbey, Bathseba's unique coastline and lunch at Bonitas, when we weren't swimming in beautiful Carilse Bay. We particiated in a lively evening drum circle while fresh breadfruit roasted in he fire nearby.Christy made our first trip to Barbados a nurturing experience. We will return. Mahalo Nui Loa from our Island to yours. Aloha
All the staff were exceptionally nice and helpful. We got directions and had them provide transport around town. It made all the difference in being able to make the most of our short time there. If I had to criticize anything, it would be that the bed was hard and the rooms were a bit dated. I expected it to be a little more contemporary to match the outside of the house.
My time spent at emerald ridge was just what I needed. It is in a great location , plenty of resources and skip to Dover beach. Keep in mind Dover beach is one of Barbados more beautiful beaches if your looking for calm water, eats, and souvenir shopping. The staff was super kind and accommodating from house keeping to property owner. It's comfortable like home, rooms are clean and modest with a mini fridge, bathroom, A.C , television and a. Kitchen where you can get odds and ends as needed. I was very pleased with my stay. Bed and breakfast style property. I didn't eat much there ,because I was in the go!
