Up on a cliff top in Bayfield, St. Philip Barbados,

Sits Farther Away;

Farther Away is a unique and beautiful cottage overlooking the East Coast beach of Skeete's Bay with incredible panoramic views. Cool, Breezy, Relaxing and Peaceful.

The house was built in 2006 and is owned by retired Barbadians David and Christine Clarke.

The house consists of three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a kitchen, living room, and deck. Each bedroom has twin beds. The Master Bedroom has an en-suite bathroom while the other two bedrooms share a bathroom.

It's only a short walk to the beach where you can swim, sunbathe, walk on the beach, hike and even fish off the pier.

Imagine, watching the beautiful sunrise, sipping a cup of coffee or tea, or after having had an invigorating sea bath, cooling out on the deck with a glass of Clarkie's complimentary Bajan Rum Punch! Immerse yourself in the incredible natural vista and experience true relaxation at it's finest.

Good public transport service is available but a car is more convenient and suggested.

My boyfriend and I stayed at Farther Away together with another couple to celebrate my 30th birthday and christmas. We had an amazing time in this beautiful cottage and would recommend it to everyone who is traveling to Barbados looking for a place away from the tourist crowd.

The cottage is nicely placed on a cliff overlooking skeetes bay. The highlight for us was the huge outside deck where we spent almost all our time. The house is very well equipped, especially the kitchen (you would find anything you need and even more). Everything is perfectly clean and maintained - just a place you don’t want to leave anymore. :)

Also the owners of the house were the perfect hosts and assisted us with everything before and during our travels: they did grocery shopping for us, so we would have something to eat when we arrived late from the airport, they would check in on us regularly to see if everything was okay, they would come by the house and refill the gas for the BBQ and they would pick us up and drop us in the airport....

There is really nothing that could have been better and we truly hope to be able to come back one day!

“We had really a great vacation in Farther Away. We felt like hiding from the world - nicely tucked away in a peaceful spot. If people are safe and comfortable we have a saying in our country: “They are in Lord’s wallet”. :-) That’s what that house is - a truly lovely place, colorful and happy house with fantastic views - and wonderful owners. Christine and David took good care of us, helped with car rental and gave us great tips were to go. Children loved the sea turtles! Would highly recommend the house for everyone seeking for a peaceful spot away from it all. Rental car was necessary to get around.”
