Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
It's not a massive space but its home for me and it can be for you as well. I prefer my guests to use WhatsApp for all forms of contact. Also, download Waze for all your directions it's better than google maps. I generally will have roll-over guests so your room could be either of the two pictures depicted depending on how long your stay is compared to the other guest and how many persons are in your party compared to the guest who arrived and extended.

The space
If you are looking for a hotel my place is not for you. I am a college student so my home is just that homey, with flaws, like my entire place can use a re-tile. I wish I could remodel my kitchen, but guess what it's lived in and it has character. It's not a sorority house but it’s also not the Ritz. It’s a townhouse so the bathroom and bedrooms are upstairs and the rest is downstairs. Hopefully, with your help of renting my home, I earn extra money to pay for school and keep a roof over my head. When I'm done and successful, I'll be able to do all the repairs my home needs.

Guest access
Upstairs bathroom, kitchen, dining room, patio and laundry

Other things to note
I try to be as cost effective as possible so the lights run on solar power, if you leave the lights on consistently for 2 hours they will shut off. The electrical ports however work off of electricity. Public transport stops at midnight and resumes at 5am.

Barbados

If you listen to my directions thoroughly you will enjoy my space. If you do your research prior to your arrival you will enjoy my space. I am located 15 mins walking distance from the University of the West Indies Cavehill. On the campus there is an ATM and a mini supermarket called Campus Mart where you can buy groceries. If you are travelling to Barbados in the evening, please you will be tired upon arrival purchase something to eat from the airport or travelling with something that you can prepare in the kitchen. There will be tea and coffee in the morning. 15 mins seems like a short distance but when you arrive you WILL BE TIRED. Also take into consideration that businesses in Barbados close early, KFC delivers up until 10pm but it takes about 2 hours for the food to be delivered. There is a beach about 20 mins walk called Batts Rock there you will find La Cabane, a really chilled beach bar and restaurant. I live in a suburban district kind of, but I do not know my neighbors, my neighbors do not know me and I would love to keep it that way. So please do not give out my personal details such as my name, number or tell persons you meet in my neighborhood that I am running an Airbnb. If your phone allows, you will be provided with a local sim card on arrival so that you can call me, I just ask that you top it up with cash.

I am studying currently, my degree is very time consuming and expensive and therefore it's been hard for me to continue working while I study. A friend told me about Airbnb, and I decided to do it as the funds will help me pay my rent and tuition fee until I can work again. So I have 2 rooms, and if I rent both I can subsidize my income. I ask that if you rent my space that you realize you are renting it for yourself, I ask that you not have additional persons over. I have friends who have done airbnb and persons invited people over whom they met on social media and those persons returned after the fact and committed robberies or they took taxis that were not pre-approved by the host and in trying to b friendly they talked too much and revealed information about their host and living situation and the host was robbed. I am trying this for the first time and I do not want to have a bad experience. Please do not make this a bad experience for either of us.

During your stay
I am an all over the place host. If I haven't been at school all day I can have conversations with you. However, if I have been to school all day all I want to do is pass out on my couch downstairs. Please note I am also always on my phone. Watching a movie to de-stress or reading more for school. I am not trying to be rude but my degree requires a lot of my time. But if you download WhatsApp, you can message me there and I will always reply when I am available.
