My husband and I had the most fabulous experience during our 9 night stay in the Plantation View cottage on the Pollard Mills Estate. We came across Pollard Mills after we had arrived in Barbados and had a terrible experience at our pre-booked accommodation. Linda responded to our request for last-minute accommodation immediately and invited us to come up to her property for a viewing the same day we contacted her. Once we arrived at the property we both knew right away that we would be spending the remainder of our time in Barbados there. The cottage itself is absolutely stunning, a beautiful and spacious two story structure that is very clean – we felt like we were one of the first guests to ever stay there! The downstairs open-plan living area was very functional and had everything we needed to self-cater. The open concept master bedroom and bathroom upstairs was unlike anywhere we had stayed before and we thoroughly enjoyed coffee in the morning and drinks in the evening on the covered porch with views over the sugar cane fields. The property itself is unbelievable and I can say, without a doubt, that the photos do not do this property justice. It is a lush and very well cared for estate with a huge variety of tropical plants and trees. We loved watching the local group of wild monkeys sneaking bananas in the morning outside our window and the sounds of the birds all day long. The estate is located in a central location with views all the way down to the south coast (you can see the famous Crane hotel) and to the ocean beyond. While the estate is centrally located, 15 minutes to Ostins (a must do on a Fridaynight for the fish fry!), 10 minutes to Bath beach (a lovely swimming area on the rougher East coast) – you feel like you are on your own in paradise. We loved going on adventures around the island in the morning and returning to the peace and quiet of Pollard Mills to spend our afternoons relaxing in the pool under the swaying palm trees. Without a doubt we would (and already have!) recommend this property to others – it would be perfect for a romantic getaway, a family trip, or a destination wedding! Linda was a great host who gave us our privacy but was always available if we had a question or needed anything. We hope to travel back to Barbados in the next year or two and, without question, would return to Pollard Mills! Enjoy this lovely piece of paradise!
