Why Jackie Harper chose Weston
We chose to have Shutters in Lower Carlton because I'd visited Barbados many times and wanted to have a house with a Bajan feel away from the massive hotels. It turns out to have been a wise choice because the neighbourhood is very safe and the neighbours extremely friendly and helpful. Many of our guests leave the house on first name terms with the neighbours.

Fabulous property in a great location. Eudora the housekeeper and Kathy the gardener were great . Can’t recommend it highly enough.
A wonderful visit
Shutters is a beautiful villa on a beautiful island. The villa is located nicely with a short 5 minute walk to ‘Simone’s Beach’ where you can reasonably priced sun beds, umbrellas, drinks and excellent home cooked food. Not to mention a fabulous warm welcome. A short drive to Holetown where you can find a good mix of bars, restaurants and shops. The villa itself was spotlessly clean with comfortable beds and pillows. The kitchen was well equipped. Beautiful view of the sunset over the sea from the upstairs balcony.
This was our first visit to Barbados, we will definitely be coming back and would be more than happy to stay at Shutters again.
Thank you for your review Tim.
Great Home, Ideal Location!
Shutters was a wonderful home. It was the perfect place to stay for our party of 6 people. My adult kids enjoyed the pool when we were not at one of the local beaches or touring the island. The location is ideal with a short drive into Holetown.
Thank you for your review Adrian. Glad you all enjoyed your stay at Shutters in beautiful Barbados. Hopefully will see you all again! :-)
We an adult family of 7 spent two weeks at Shutters. We have stayed all over the West coast of the island over the years and would definitely return to Shutters. The villa was very well equipped for all our needs, including little things like cool bags. Due to its location , 5 mins up the hill, we found it much quieter as its off the main highway. Also you get a lovely breeze through the house, so we found we didn,t need to use the a/c at night as the fans were sufficient which we preferred. Communication with property owner and housekeeper was excellent.. I would highly recommend Shutters if you are looking for a villa in a good neighbourhood with the best beach on the island 5 minutes on foot down the hill.
Thank you for taking the time to write this review. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at Shutters in Beautiful Barbados.
We will look forward to your return.
We just returned from an amazing family holiday at Shutters, it is situated in a residential area away from the busy tourist areas enabling you to experience the real Barbados, there is a lovely beach a couple of minutes walk away, where we spent many an evening watching the beautiful sunset. We were greeted by the lovely Eudora on arrival who was always very helpful. The house is very light, airy and spacious, it is well equipped and maintained and very clean. The garden is also very large and well maintained by the bubbly Kathy. The people of Barbados are extremely friendly,warm and welcoming, there are many lovely places to eat locally including Jefferson’s at the bottom of the road or a bit further away something a little upmarket Lone star garage was lovely, some of the family went to The Cliff - which they said was amazing.A highlight of the holiday was snorkelling with the turtles and over a shipwreck, surfing on the south coast, horse riding along the beach on the East coast and watching England versus The West Indies at Kensington oval. The whole holiday was breathtaking and memorable. Jackie the owner is so helpful and friendly, so easy to deal with. Thank you Jackie
Thank you Jayne for your fabulous review.
We are so glad you had such a wonderful family holiday.
We look forward to seeing you back at Shutters in the future.
Lower Carlton is an ideal village to sample Bajan life. It is mainly residential but there is a fish market and fruit & veg stall which are excellent for BBQ supplies. The Carlton Variety Store is within 3 minutes walk of Shutters - basic supplies can be purchased there (eggs/milk/bread etc) but the owner - Jefferson - does excellent BBQ'd local dishes on Thurs, Fri and Sat nights and a bar week nights where locals chat, and play cards and dominos (a lovely place to go for a beer and Jefferson's fantastic rum punch). St Alban's Church is about 3 minutes walk down the road and is the perfect setting, right on the beach, for a wedding or renewing vows. There are also several restaurants within 5 or 10 minutes walk of Shutters, and the Lone Star and Mullins restaurants are both within a 5 minutes bus ride. The highway at the bottom of the road follows the west coast so access to Bridgetown including the Kensington Oval cricket ground, Holetown and Speightstown and beyond is easy by the fantastic (and very entertaining) bus services.
