Here’s a picture of my husband’s and my impossible dream. It’s an abandoned beachside hotel/resort on Barbados’ North Point shore. Our taxi driver Ralph took us out there, and told us that the hotel had been abandoned and for sale for several years. More like 10 years plus by the look of the crumbling walls of the hotel. Yet it was one of those “wouldn’t that be cool” moments you have in your life, where you think “what if we bought it and fixed it and lived on this cliffside in the Caribbean the rest of our lives” moments. But then reality of the money, money, and more money sank in, and we realized that the dream wasn’t maybe so good after all. But every time I look at these pictures, it brings a certain thrill again. Maybe this place is calling to one of you! heehee 🙂 Slainte, Lisa
Perhaps I’m just weird, but it gives me story ideas of a post-apocalyptic world with only a few survivors. They find this place and use it as a refuge…
Awesome! They’re keeping low and out of sight, but supplies are running low and they know that they’ll need to go out there sometime….. 🙂
A kindred spirit 🙂
As for me, I was willing to go in with you on the deal. You had me at living on the beach for the rest of my life. But like you the money, money, money got in the way. But then I was back in with thoughts of people go to old castles and forts every day…. hummmmmm… ok, wake up and back to the real world and work… hahahaha… have a blessed day
Another kindred spirit! 🙂 Doesn’t it make your world a little warmer to know that other people think like you in the world? 🙂
I could live/work there.
Yeah, we LOVED Barbados….much nicer than we had heard in the travel reviews as far as safety. We felt very safe and peaceful there. Beautiful island.
Is the beauty and intrigue in the isolation of the remote location, away from the hustle and bustle??? If so, that is probably the reason that it was abandoned and forgotten. Resorts need people for that evil called, money, money, and more just to maintain the beauty. What is amazing is that it had not been taken over by the homeless.
The North Point is very, very remote, but the most beautiful part of the island. They have had some crime reported up there in the past; maybe scared away the tourists.
