“Excellent stay”
Reviewed 6 July 2019 for a stay in June 2019

Had a fantastic stay at Fosters House in June. If you are looking for a large beachfront villa with a pool on the west coast at a reasonable price then in my opinion Fosters House is hard to beat. Yes not all of the house is new and contemporary but it is very comfortable indeed with a lovely pool and terrace. You are also just steps down to an excellent beach which is great for swimming and some snorkelling too.
The sea views from every bedroom are stunning and each has a balcony.
I was very well looked after by Cheryl who was very friendly and cooked some delicious meals for me.
Finally worth noting that for a beachfront villa, it is very secure as you are completely enclosed.
I would love to go back at some stage and would highly recommend.

“Disappointing”
Reviewed 30 January 2019 for a stay in August 2018

Fosters House is probably one of the best positioned properties on the island - but that’s where it ends! The house is tired and shabby. The kitchen is falling apart. The bathrooms are badly dated and not in good working order. The gym is a joke with badly maintained equipment. The cook can’t cook, we had to eat out virtually every night as a result. You are issued with ‘The Rules’ immediately after your arrival. The house badly needs some TLC and money spending on it, I suspect that once it was a fabulous house but it has been allowed to ‘let go’ and when things are eventually replaced they are replaced with cheap sub standard replacements rather than with quality replacements. It is such a shame that what could be an amazing house is being run into the ground by the owners who prefer to stay elsewhere rather than Fosters House when they return to the island..........

Good Morning Billy,

I am sorry to hear that Foster's House did not meet your expectations during your trip. We have spoken with the owner who will be shutting down the property in summer to do some renovations and painting which should help make the property a bit more modern.

Hopefully you will give Fosters another chance in the future.

We look forward to having the chance to greet you back in Barbados in the years to come.

Have a wonderful day,

Best regards

“Spectacular House”
Reviewed 8 March 2018 for a stay in February 2018

The location and beauty of this home is amazing but it is really the staff that made our holiday. Claire, Catherine, Cheryl and Anthea were incredibly kind and took great care of us. Three fantastic meals a day looking out to the ocean cannot be beat! We will be back some day!

“Amazing”

We stayed at Fosters House is August as a family with grown girls and their boyfriends. We had a fabulous time, perfect location, beautiful secluded beach at the bottom of the garden. Few minutes drive from bars and restaurants. The staff were absolutely incredible. Claire, the housekeeper anticipates your every wish and more. Chef was superb, we really enjoyed sampling local carribean cuisine so beautifully prepared for us.
Katherine and Anthea, kept the place spotlessly clean and tidy and laundered every item as soon as we removed them. For the first time ever I returned with a suitcase full of clean clothes.
All this done with a smile and lovely sense of humour.
I cannot recommend this villa enough, although I would like to keep it a secret just for us !!!

“Fosters House, Barbados”
Reviewed 22 February 2017 for a stay in February 2017

I have had my family at Fosters House three times, and am there now with two other couples. It is my favorite place in the Caribbean. The villa can accommodate 10, with four suites upstairs and a den with pullout sofa and full bath on main level. A friendly staff of 4 is included, including a cook for as many meals as you wish to eat in. There is a beautiful pool just Caribbean side of the house, with only 8 steps down to the sand beach. For snorkelers there is a nice reef just offshore which attracts commercial catamarans like Spirit of Barbados. Gated on both beach and road sides, security is not a problem. Beautiful sunsets and some pretty good restaurants 5-20 minutes away by rental car.
