barbudaful guest houses
As far as we know these guest houses are now available although many were taken up by workers and volunteers over the last year, after Hurricane Irma. Some will have lost their numbers so we will be checking these as soon as possible. Others may not be back on electricity or internet yet. Not all of the guest houses on Barbuda are listed here, although all are invited. Be aware that some websites such as Airbnb cannot tell the difference between Antigua and Barbuda, so guest houses come up that are not actually on Barbuda at all.
These entries are not reviews although we try to be honest with the facts. Some owners cannot reply to e mails quickly so a phone call first is best and some numbers change but they forget to update us, so if you can't get through, let us know and we can pass on a message.
Questions you might want to ask - there are three types of water supply in Barbuda: government or 'piped' water only on at certain times, harvested rainwater cisterns, and wells. Some houses have one or both or all three, you may need to know if you can drink it especially if you don't want to buy bottled drinking water.
There are two electrical systems in Barbuda - 220 or 110 - some houses have one or both, or a generator which may be only part-time if you are on the beach although Barbuda Cottages lead the way with self sufficient solar power. Depending where you are coming from, you may need an adaptor or transformer for your equipment.
Some houses do not have hot water and most do not have a/c, but all have friendly helpful owners who will do their best to make your stay comfortable.
Camping on Barbuda
Barbuda has many miles of wonderful natural coastline and one of the best ways to experience it is to spend the night under the stars. At our Atlantic coast campsite - Frangipani Glamping - we have all you need to do this. Our pretty new Cabana has an outdoor shower and kitchen, a bonfire area for drinking rum punch late into the night, and is lit by solar lights alone. We have a barbecue grill and a gas cooker and provide all your cooking equipment so you can cook lobster straight from our fish pot. You might see deer or a nesting turtle, you will definitely see donkeys! See more details here.
