Sea-U Guest House
From the front, this hideaway on the island’s east coast doesn't look like much, but out back is a two-story plantation-style hotel. Opened by friendly former travel writer Uschi Wetzels, this place isn't for everyone—there's no air-conditioning in the Main House (it is available in the 3-room Cottage, however) or television, guests share a single phone, and mosquito repellent can come in handy at sunset. Easygoing Americans and Europeans get to know each other over family-style meals, and entertainment is provided by monkeys playing in the trees.
The whitewashed rooms are furnished with mahogany, bamboo, or teak beds, dark-wood floors, and large deck chairs for catching a glimpse of the scampering Barbadian green monkeys in the garden. Most of the rooms have shared balconies.
