There are several guest houses on Barbuda, and more than are listed here. As Barbuda develops there are new properties becoming available, but on the beach we like Frangipani on the north-west Atlantic ocean coast and Emerald Sands on the southern Caribbean sea. Currently many of the village homes that were guest houses are being rented out on a longer term basis to visitors working at PLH and other projects, so your choice of longer term rental is limited and more expensive than it was.

Questions you might want to ask – there are three types of water supply in Barbuda: government or ‘piped’ water which might only be 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. Some houses do not have hot water showers and many do not have a/c because we have the breeze to keep us cool, but all have friendly helpful owners who will do their best to make your stay comfortable.

There are two electrical systems in Barbuda – 220 or 110 – some houses have both. Depending where you are coming from, you may need adaptors or a transformer for your equipment.
