A friend recommended Natalie's cottages as a wonderful retreat and it turns out to be the perfect 3 week holiday. Natalie put me in Breeze which is full of charm and has the most stunning sea views. The cottage is spacious with a wonderful terrace and equipped with all the basics you need to be self contained. It's only a...

Before taking our trip, I really took the time to research hotels vs. cottages. I wanted something quiet, close to the beach, a nice view but most importantly affordable! For starters, the location of the cottage is perfect!!! The deck has a beautiful view that overlooks Galley Bay Resort. I woke up every morning to the sounds of the waves;...

I just want to comment that some of the reviews here seem to be for the much pricier all inclusive Galley Bay Hotel, which has cottages as part of the hotel, and not for the privately owned Galley Bay Cottages that are up the hill from, but not part of, that hotel. There is a BIG difference! I've stayed in...

We stayed in Breeze, the Galley Bay cottage with a panoramic view of the sea, for three weeks and had a thoroughly relaxing and wonderful holiday. Natalie was a friendly and easy going host and her housekeeper, Sherry, was brilliant too. We enjoyed eating out on the deck and we found the kitchen had everything we needed for holiday cooking....

I spent 6 days at the Galley Bay cottages. We started off our stay in the treehouse, which was beautifully rustic, it had a lovely secluded balcony and was perfect base. As the week went on Natalie upgraded us to the bigger cottages as they became free. Spice was great and had a wonderful loft bedroom, again with a great...

Galley Bay Cottages were terrific - we are always looking for the alternative to the all-inclusive / resort experience and this collection of cottages was perfect. We stayed in Breeze with a view of the sea directly below our deck and bedroom window. My husband, myself and 3 children - upon our arrival the owner Natalie Murphy let us use...

We stayed at one of the cottages for 3 days then moved to an all-inclusive resort for another 4 days. We thought the cottage was fine - comfortable enough but we did feel a bit like we had to "make do" - bed wasn't the most comfortable, toilet facilities weren't the best, mosquitoes everywhere, we had to clean up after...

This was our second stay at Galley Bay. We had a wonderful time. The location, view were superb. Hospitality is great. We stayed in Breeze this time-a beautiful cottage with amazing views. You can see Giorgio Armani's place from your deck. a short walk to a great beach-what more could you ask for. And the price is also excellent. The...

We stayed at Galley Bay for 7 nights in the Cottages. We loved the place. Yes, you are in a cosetted world, but I can stand that for 7 days. It surely must be one of the few places that does exactly what it says in the brochures. You will not be disappointed with the location - right on the...

We just stayed in Galley Bay Resort for a week of January 19-26. 90% of the visitors were English and only the rest of them were Americans. The property is absolutely spotless, the natives couldn't do more to accomodate you and the whole resort is built in Gaugen's theme, just like in Tahiti. Beautiful. But if you are used to...
