The home is situated in Bottom Bay and is somewhat difficult to get to. You should plan on renting a car. The home is well set up and has most amenities that you would expect. The pool is a plus. We had planned on walking to the beach every day to go swimming in the ocean. We were told by the locals that the water is not swimmable as the current is extremely dangerous. I don't know if it was because of the time of year or if it is always like that. That was a huge disappointment. The beach had some type of funky sea weed that apparently is a problem for the island. We visited the beach twice during our seven day visit. There is a picture of a BBQ in the listing but it was missing when we were there which was a huge disappointment. There was a slight glitch with our arrival because we changed our dates after we had booked the trip and the caretaker said that he was not aware of the change so he was not there to meet us. We also had problems with one of the toilets not flushing. It was fixed the following day. With all that said, Quincy (the caretaker) is a wonderful, charming man that made us feel welcome. He has a wonderful personality and I know why the owner has employed him. The home is perfect for a casual and private getaway. We were annoyed that all they offered was DVDs but we watched some really good movies and enjoyed them. We really did not miss watching television. It helped us get off the grid. You really won't be disappointed with the home and the price.

CouCou house is situated in Atlantic Rising. A perfect spot for relaxing and enjoying the coastal winds off the Atlantic Ocean. A 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom, self contained house with A/C units in the bedrooms. Full fridge and gas range and fabulous pool to keep you cool during those hot sunny days. Perfect patio area with adequate seating and evening lighting for entertaining family and friends. Clean and well maintained, Quincy made us feel very welcome and addressed all ofvour concerns.We would definately return as we love the area and all it has to offer.

We arrived on April 29th and enjoyed a full week of fun and sun on Flying Fish Street ( so Bajan, love it) and were able to enjoy making our own breakfasts and dinners when we wanted. The appliances were great to have for this purpose. We always enjoyed a nice walk on Bottom Bay Beach every morning and late afternoon. The beach is literally a 5 minute walk away. The location of Cou Cou is not close to The Gap or Bridgetown, but a 20 min taxi is worth every penny. Sharing the home with another couple cut down on costs, so the transport is economical.
The pool is a perfect size for relaxing and cooling off. Having all the amenities of home was special.. not like renting a hotel room at a large resort. This is a perfect place if you just want to get away from the crowded hotels, loud kids and parties.
But yet.. if you feel like a night out its only 20 minutes away. Marcia was the best in making sure we were fine, always had Quincy, the Property Manager check in on us. My family and I cannot wait to visit Cou Cou again and enjoy everything Barbados has to offer. Thank you Marcia

“Perfect child-friendly holiday house!!”

Location is perfect, beach 2 mins walk away. Best beach on the island, btw (Bottom Bay!!). Child friendly, our son loved the swimming pool. Rooms are big, the house was clean and tidy. Well equipped, almost feels like home away from home. Car hire is a must for this property, especially if going out at night. All that said, Quincy was a great host, easy to contact and very helpful. Would definitely recommend this property!!

“Great Experience”

I am a resident of Barbados and my partner and I rented the property for the weekend for his birthday. I must say it was a great experience. It was very relaxing and comfortable. The self contained property is in a quiet neighborhood. We left the property once for the weekend and that was to go to the supermarket for groceries. We didn't care to leave otherwise.

Upon leaving (which we didn't want to do) we have decided that we will rent the property again later in the year for my birthday and I eagerly look forward to that time.
