    Description

    I am a single mother of a 14 year old son. We are based in a rustic fishing village on the eastern coast of Barbados. We have a small farm with crops and animals and are situated on a cliff with breathtaking views overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. Our neighborhood is full of friendly folk and the fishermen bring in hauls daily. We have a restaurant and three "watering holes" in our village.
    I have a yoga space on the cliff edge which is a wonderful place to reconnect and recharge. We have vegetable garden and lots of banana and plantain trees on our property. There are family run Horse Stables 600' away.
