  • Lovely tranquil apartment with all the details thought through for a peaceful vacation. Not too much fuss, not too little, just everything you need.

    Sarah2020-01-30T00:00:00Z
  • Gorgeous, well situated air bnb 2 minutes to the beach and 4 minutes to Holetown. Super accessible, Bryn and his mother were lovely and easily accommodating when we arrived late. The patio really makes the space. Would be delighted to stay with them again.

    Trudy2020-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • Bryn and Ruth are great hosts. The apartment is spacious and clean, with the most beautiful balcony area. In the mornings you get the sun so breakfast outdoors is lovely. The rooms are at the back so it’s quiet. Inside remains quite cool but I’d recommend using the fans to get air moving (which also helps keep mosis away from you). It’s well equipped and I’d definitely recommend staying here.

    Alice2020-01-13T00:00:00Z
  • Just come back from a great holiday in Barbados. The location of this apartment is awesome. The apartment was clean and perfect for our requirements. Ruth was very hospitable, couldn’t do enough for us. Many thanks

    Emma2019-12-23T00:00:00Z
  • Don’t hesitate to book this spot. The location is perfect for the beach, supermarket, buses up and down the coast, and a variety of restaurants. The apartment has ample space for two couples especially as the rooms are both en-suite and the exact same, although we were 2 people with a room each. You have everything you need to self cater or enjoy drinks on the balcony. Only “down” side is mosquitoes, but Ruth was prepared with repellant for us too, and you get those everywhere. Access to the pool club is also a brilliant touch. Great value, especially in comparison to hotels in the area. Ruth is a delight - always on hand for tips, advice, and equally respectful of your space. Don’t forget to ask for eggs etc from Bryn’s farm! Thanks for a great first trip to Barbados.

    Roxy2019-12-13T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed for two weeks in Pura Vida at the end of November to first week of December we loved it. It is convenient for everything you need. There is a bank machine one minute from the apartment and coffee shops. There is a big supermarket a ten minute walk away and beaches and restaurants all on your doorstep. Bryn’s Mum lives downstairs and was a great help to us what a lovely lady. The two bedrooms have air conditioning and two bathrooms with showers. We didn’t rent a car but the buses are great and you can catch one easily at the bottom of the road. I would highly recommend this apartment and we would certainly stay there again.

    Sandra2019-12-06T00:00:00Z
  • Pura Vida is a true gem. The apartment has everything you need and is ideally situated. A five minute walk to the Beach House(perfect pool) and Holetown beach. The fresh eggs and veggies from Bryn’s farm were delicious and Ruth was just a text away with helpful local insights. We’ll be back!

  • Can't say enough about your villa and the wonderful 5 night stay we just completed. Roxanne went above and beyond to make sure that our visit would be exceptional. All the subtle extra touches made the experience even more gratifying. Well done!!! The concierge, Akiel, who appeared at our door every morning with fresh juices, was very cordial and helpful with local knowledge. Would go back to your villa in a pinch! Exceptional triple A Super hosts!. We'll be back!

    Colin2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • This was our first time using Airbnb as we tend to hate ‘resort’ hotels and the style of hotel/accommodation we like seemed hard to find in Barbados (or was out of our price bracket!). This was a great first experience; we loved our stay in James and Roxanne’s Villa. It was clean and spacious with a choice of lovely outdoor spaces and in a great neighbourhood, walking distance to central Holetown and the beach. The kitchen has everything you would need and Roxanne made sure to drop by with a new coffee machine on our first day as the previous one suffered an accident just before our arrival, but in the meantime she lent us her own nespresso machine and pods and then left us with that also; heaven for us coffee addicts! There is a lovely chap Akiel who makes his own fresh juices and delivers to your door most mornings about 9am - this is arranged by Roxanne and is complimentary - a really nice touch; I wish Akiel every success in his business venture. Access to the beach club is also a great bonus. The nearest bus stop is really close and with buses every few minutes, it is easy to get anywhere on the West Coast. We were heading over to the East Coast after staying here so always intended hiring a car but in the end we didn’t pick a car up until our last day as we didn’t feel we needed it while here. I think the Villa is very fairly priced. We would recommend.

    Caroline2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • James and Roxanne were great hosts. They responded to any questions we had very quickly. The villa is very spacious and in a great location - a short walk to the beach, a bus stop, shops and restaurants. A very easy place to stay if you don’t have a car. The fresh juice provided was amazing. I would definitely recommend it.

    Claire2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay. Very convenient to all your needs.

    Barbara2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • This property is located in an attractive & secluded gated area within Sunset Crest. It is superbly located within walking distance of beautiful beaches, lovely restaurants, huge supermarket & taxi ranks. The villa is light, spacious & beautifully clean. We particularly enjoyed the private verandah off the main bedroom for early morning coffee. James & Roxanne were the perfect hosts attending swiftly to two minor issues we had during our stay & the Friday evening rum punch was a lovely gesture. It was great meeting you both. We look forward to a return visit. Lynne & Bruce

    Bruce2020-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • James’s place was beautiful, the living room, kitchen and dining area was nice and spacious. I let James know that I was travelling for my 30th birthday and I was welcomed with a birthday card and a slice of cake. The hosts were very helpful and tentative. They were very accessible and regularly contacted us with tips on events and locations. They also genuinely checked up, which is always appreciated. The outside area is very clean and the pool is nice for a dip to cool you down from the amazing heat. I would also recommend that you hire a car as you can venture further out. The beach and local store Massey’s is just a walk away with access to local buses. I also got my nails done in the salon by a lady named Cherry at the end of the cul de sac next to the Italian cafe. I would recommend to stay in James’s villa and experience St James, the beautiful beaches, nice restaurants and the local bars and local food. On a Sunday night don’t miss out on the street party in Holetown, the karaoke was my favourite.

    Erika2020-01-24T00:00:00Z
  • James and Roxanne put a lot of thought into this villa. It is modern, clean, bright and airy. There are so many thoughtful touches, like a little vanity kit for ladies with a hair tie, cotton wool, and things you might have left behind. They have made a lot of effort to keep the place tidy and modern, which isn’t easy in a hot country. The towels are lovely and soft - this is always nice! They provide some washing powder for the linen, which was handy as we were there 10 days. A selection of snacks were left for us too, in addition to homemade short bread, cookies and coffee, all of which was much appreciated. All the basics were in the kitchen. There is a fantastic walk in wardrobe in the master bedroom. You can walk to the town centre safely even late at night but there are some parts that appear to be dodgy en route. I don’t think they are in actual fact and once we got used to the area, we always felt safe. People are very friendly and everyone says hello. The villa is a 15 min walk from the town centre where the bars and main supermarket are located. There are some villas that are much closer but based on my search, most of them were dated inside and no where near as modern and roomy as this place. I would definitely check out all three listings under James as if I had known about it, I would have opted for villa B - it has a few big balconies whereas villa A only has one (still nice). If you just want a bed and small kitchen space then they also have a studio. I haven’t mentioned the best part though. They have a young man that comes each day to bring you homemade cold juices - you can choose your flavour/fruit. He is very nice. On a Friday he brings rum punch made from fresh juice. This is truly a really nice touch from the hosts and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The outside space with the plunge pool is nice but it isn’t huge. The courtyard connects villas A and B. I would definitely suggest saying hello to the neighbours in villa B so it doesn’t feel uncomfortable when you both have your living room doors open. The hosts were always available and in contact. They even touch base with you throughout to make sure everything is well. It is clear that they care about you having a pleasant stay. I would definitely recommend this place if you are looking for a roomy, modern villa in Barbados. I think you will be hard pressed to find something as nice in the area and for the price. Thank you!!

    Jasmine2020-01-17T00:00:00Z
  • The residence is amazing and it’s the definition of relaxing and paradise. I love myself with my best friends and we were totally browned away by the style and presence of the property. Additionally, James is a great superhost and he is very professional and kind.

  • We had the most amazing stay in Barbados and couldn’t have asked for a better Airbnb! Clean, modern, and full of thoughtful touches - James and Roxanne even left us an anniversary note, and slice of delicious cake ;) From the Bajan hot sauce and cookies to the hair ties in the bathroom, they truly have thought of everything. One of our highlights was the fresh juice brought to our door by the most wonderful man, and the rum punch he brought by on Friday. We were lucky to meet James & Roxanne during our stay, who are just lovely people who want their guests to enjoy the beatBarbados and Holetown have to offer. The apt was in a beautiful setting, and we saw a family of monkeys on our walk out to the beach one morning. You are only a 5-10 min from restaurants, shops, the beach, and even a supermarket or gas station. We loved the local Holetown beach, seeing sea turtles and other sea creatures just by snorkeling off the beach on our own. We would definitely stay here again when we return to this beautiful and friendly island!

    Liz & Austin2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • Great location with easy access to the west coast. Hosts were very quick and efficient at getting back to any queries and the apartment was perfect for what we needed. I would recommend if you are looking for a good location and value for money!

    Chris2020-01-29T00:00:00Z
  • This was the perfect place to chill out for a few days after our cruise. The apartment was spotlessly clean, well-equipped and ideally located just a few hundred metres from all the facilities of Holetown. The beach club facilities too were much better than we expected and a preferable alternative (for us) than the beaches. Coffee was great there too. James and Roxanne were perfect hosts throughout, really responsive and helpful, particularly today when our car wouldn’t start! We would thoroughly recommend this peaceful villa and wouldn’t hesitate to return if we’re over this way again.

    Nick2020-01-22T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay in the Garden Studio exceeded all expectations. The studio is exactly as described and shown in the photos but they do not do it justice. The space is so beautifully decorated and it is a calm haven which makes you relax as soon as you arrive. The large walk in closet was a great bonus as was the laundry room with washer and dryer. We spent a lot of time sitting out on the terrace listening to the tree frogs and birds, watching the family of green monkeys that passed by most mornings - we had complete seclusion and privacy. The special touches like Akiel, the juice man, who calls by each morning with complimentary homemade juice - such a lovely young man passionate about his juice and also keen to ensure guests are happy. Any queries or needs are responded to immediately and James and Roxanne are always on hand with local recommendations- at the same time they are in no way intrusive. We had been a little concerned that the cooking facilities were limited but that was not the case and the bbq grill mat provided meant anything could be cooked and enjoyed at home. The studio is minutes away from the fabulous west coast beaches, bars, restaurants and large supermarket - we did not need a car (even though we had a parking space). We felt completely safe both at the studio and walking around the area. We loved everything about this Studio and have already planned a return visit.

    Sally2020-01-17T00:00:00Z
  • James and Roxanne are fabulous hosts! They went above and beyond to make sure our stay was perfect. Best airbnb I've stayed at in Barbados. Fantastic location - close to the beach and five star restaurants. We will definitely be coming back.

    Dana2019-12-31T00:00:00Z
  • We loved it! If you are looking for a place to stay go for this one! James and Roxanne have created a really modern and comfortable studio with lovely details everywhere. The studio was sparkling clean and just looks like the pictures. You can reach a lot by foot but I’d recommend to rent a car to get to know Barbados. In the morning we had coffee on the terrace and when we were lucky we could see green monkeys passing by. James and Roxanne gave us some great tips to go to and responded in shortest time.

    Lilly2019-12-20T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice place. It was very fun to stay at the studio in Barbados. Everything very clean and James and Roxanne are very nice people.

  • Fantastic apartment in a great location. June was extremely helpful and communicated promptly. We had everything we needed and it is really a beautiful property. We would highly recommend it!

    Helena2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • June was a great host and very accommodating to us. She responded very quickly to any questions we had. The villa itself is beautiful and very comfortable. It’s in a quiet area up in the hills. Having a car here is easier, but you can walk to a bus stop in about 5-10 mins, though you need a flash light at night. I would definitely recommend it.

    Claire2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • The equipment of the apartment was very good, we felt very comfortable. Everything was very clean and the apartment was cleaned after one week, which we liked very much. June was very helpful and even picked us up from the bus stop. We can highly recommend the apartment.

    Sabine2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • June's place was perfect for us, and had exactly had we needed. The photos really do not do it justice, it is so spacious with lovely high ceilings. plenty of wardrobe and draw space too which feels like a real bonus! Very private area which we enjoyed while relaxing by the pool. Yes the apartment is a little walk a long the road to get to the beach but it really didn't bother us, I would recommend a car though if you want to see more of the island. For any couples looking for their perfect space in Barbados - this is it!

    Emma2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • This place is so so lovely, I’m so glad we stayed. The apartment itself is beautiful, with really high roofs, a super comfy bed - it’s just really cosy.The pool is great as well. We’d probably get a car if we stayed again, just because it is a little walk from the main road. Only 5 minutes or so but it can feel long when you have all your beach stuff. Some great restaurants close by ( literally just the end of the road on the walk to Holetown) and such easy access to the beach and bus stops for both directions. I would take a sleep mask if you like a dark room at bed time, as the bedroom was quite light, but still lovely. We loved it, June was so helpful.

    Rebecca2020-01-11T00:00:00Z
  • Beautyful appartment with a nice private pool in a calm location. Close to local amenities, 10min walk to the beach. The property had everything we needed.

    Sandra2019-06-05T00:00:00Z
  • We found this a great place to stay for the two of us. Fit our way of vacationing perfectly. We love to hike the beaches and roads, meet people, enjoy the local amenities, and see the sites and animals. The apartment is well set-up, clean and comfortable. The pool was a bonus as were the monkeys who came through the yard.

    Dawn2019-05-02T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful property, the photos do not do it justice. Would recommend a car for anyone coming to Barbados and staying here so that you can get around easily. Very clean and peaceful. The property had everything we needed.

    Ralph2019-11-09T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful time at our stay in Pura Vida, great location, only a 5 minute walk from the beach. We have been to barbados around 10 times now and never stayed here before, that will be changing and we will most definitely be back again!

  • The apartment is in an excellent location, very comfortable and close to the beach and supermarket which provides everything you need. We had a great time there and highly recommend it for a wonderful base in Barbados

  • Fantastic stay - location of apartment is ideal, walking distance to beach, pool and shops. The apartment had everything we needed, Bryn and Ruth are wonderful hosts and really helpful. We would recommend hiring a car to explore the island and see the East Coast.

    Welcome to SEA-esta, our recently renovated beach style one-bedroom condo is nestled in the heart of historical Holetown. SEA-esta is on the upper level of a 2-story building. Decorated in a tropical beach theme and steps away from the beach, SEA-esta has all the amenities ( a/c, WiFi, TV, fab kitchen, ensuite bathroom, enclosed veranda) you need for a comfortable stay.
    Staying with us you have free membership privileges at the popular ocean side Beach House Restaurant and Bar, which is a short 5 minute stroll from the condo. At the Beach House there’s free WiFi, a pool with lounge chairs, beach and boardwalk access
    Sea-esta is located in the heart of Holetown, the hub of the West Cost, aka the Platinum Coast. In Holetown you find all services: great restaurants, bars and coffee shops, premium supermarket, banks, shopping- from luxury goods to souvenirs as well as lovely beaches. Ours is one of the most sought after areas for visitors to the island.
  • This is a fantastic place in the centre of Holetown. Walking distance to all amenities. The Beach house with the pool is great and becomes a little club of the folks that are down on vacation. Great place to meet other people and have a nice chat while relaxing by the pool or beach. The apartment is super cute with great decor. It was exceptionally clean! The folks in the apartment next door, which was also an Air BnB were envious of the great job the lady did cleaning it before we arrived. This is a typical Bajan style home and you need to open all the windows and let the island breezes go through. The layout of the apartment is perfect for this and we never found it too hot. There are ceiling fans in living room, bedroom and on the balcony, which are great for the daytime. Then at night there is a super quiet air conditioner in the bedroom, so just close the door and turn that on while you sleep. The next morning open all the windows and doors and enjoy the Bajan breezes. We did a lot of cooking and found that the kitchen, although compact, had all the essentials required. Great place and I would recommend to it anyone.

    Nanette2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Great and safe place to stay !

    Alexandra2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • Had a wonderful relaxing stay at Carl and Glenda’s space. Ideal location only 5 mins walk from beach and 30 seconds from supermarket and bus stops. The pool photos don’t do it justice. This is a private beach club right on the front (the apartment is 5 mins walk) so you can hop from pool to sea really easily. Compared to the hugely expensive hotels in the area this place was a real bargain, with the added value of the pool. The apartment is cute and has all you need, including beach towels. I’d stay again.

    Jennifer2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • This is a great and safe apartment right in the heart of Holetown. Everything was clean and comfortable, and the hosts were great at keeping in touch. The grocery store, restaurants and mall being a few steps away were a huge plus. I can’t recommend this place enough for cost efficient stays in Holetown!

    Jovan2019-12-15T00:00:00Z
  • I visit Holetown Barbados annually and this apartment was perfect for my wife and I. Conveniently located not only to the beach and pool but also to a great supermarket (Massy), several restaurants and bars on 2nd Street, and the upscale Lime Grove mall.

    Paul2019-11-22T00:00:00Z
  • Great little place to stay to explore Holetown. Everything you need is within walking distance -beach, bars,groceries, restaurants, mall, etc. The hosts are willing to help where they can and able to give you lots of resources to help you choose tours or familiarize you with the area.

    Justine2019-11-15T00:00:00Z
  • The hospitality is amazing and it made my stay very enjoyable. The location is walking distance from amenties such as several restaurants, supermarket, medical facility and the beach.

    The Blue Door is a modern, stylish and newly renovated three bedroom house located in 1st Street, Holetown, one door away from one of Barbados' most beautiful west coast beaches. It is ideally situated within walking distance from popular restaurants, bars, a supermarket, watersports and all necessary amenities, all while being tucked away in the corner of a quiet neighbourhood. This ideal location makes The Blue Door suitable for any vacation. We hope you love it as much as we do! Kyle & Ruth
    The style of the house is modern Caribbean and features local works of art and furniture, the details of which you can find in the guidebook on arrival. The house has three bedrooms and two bathrooms; in the master bedroom there is a king sized bed and an ensuite bathroom while the other two bedrooms have a queen bed and a double bed. The house is fully air conditioned and has a fully equipped kitchen with modern appliances and a spacious and open living and dining area.

We look forward to making your stay with us an enjoyable one! Please feel free to let us know your requirements and we will try our very best to accommodate your needs. See you soon :) Kyle & Ruth
    The Blue Door is located 25 meters from a very attractive beach. A walk across the beach will land you at a quaint beach bar and restaurant and onto the west coast boardwalk! The Blue Door is located in 1st Street Holetown which is the heart of a tourist area with multiple restaurants such as Nishi, Tides, Fusion and popular bars such as Red Door, Jamestown and Sharkey's! One local bar even offers Karaoke on Sunday nights and it's an experience to behold! This is all within 2 mins walking distance. A gas station, supermarket, shopping centers, police station and banks are all located within 1 km walking distance. The area is simply lovely and we look forward to sharing it with you! Kyle & Ruth
  • Staying at the Blue Door was an awesome experience. It is literally one house away from the beach and a few minute walk to Zaccios our favourite place to sit on their outside deck with a glass of wine and watch the sun set. Coconut chicken and flying fish were also good there! The decor at the Blue Door is modern with a homey feeling and it felt spacious with 3 couples. All the amenities of home! Ruth has information sheets on the area and on their home that were very helpful. The location is close to restaurants, grocery store, bank and shopping - although the Limegrove Mall is a little out of our price range it was worth the visit and we ate at the Thai Restaurant there and it was delicious. Another nice restaurant is on the corner of First St. (can't remember name right now) and everyone who had their super hamburgers loved them - they had to be held together with a knife as the topping and meat were so high!! From The Blue Door you can walk to many other beaches along the coast. Just watch when the tide goes in and out. There are shells ad sea glass along the way. On Sunday night around the corner from the house (still on First St.) is an open gathering night - the street is literally lined with people - we went for awhile to enjoy the experience and then off to home and once inside did not hear the noise or at least don't remember because we fell asleep with no problems. And the people in Barbadoes and around where we stayed were very nice from the lady with the Flower shop on one side to Andrew on the other. There is information on taking a boat cruise to swim with the turtles with Andrew and it was absolutely a wonderful experience. He had everything we needed and the turtles swan right by you - worth doing! As first time visitors for 4 of us to Barbadoes we loved it and hope to return again. Thank you Ruth for sharing your home with us, it helped to make the experience all that more special. Carol & Doug

    Carol2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • Ruth’s house is amazing, so open, clean and stylish. Our transfer and check in went smoothly, we were given a lovely welcome shown around the property and given the keys, along with details of the local amenities. Car hire was also arranged by Ruth or Kyle, and all queries answered by message within minutes. The house is situated within walking distance of shops, restaurants, bars and of course the beautiful beach. I would recommend this house to any of my friends and relatives, not only for the house itself, but also for the great care shown by the owners.

    Lynnette2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic spot, close to everything you need. Ruth is a great host. Very responsive. Blue door beach house w as s everything we expected and more. Wouldn't hesitate to reccomend it to family and friends.

  • This really is a lovely house! Right behind Lime Grove and across from 1st and 2nd street, it’s right in the heart of everything with supermarkets, restaurants, shops and bars within minutes. You can walk anywhere with no need for a car. The furnishings are lovely and the layout, across one floor, is gorgeous. All the rooms open out into a central quadrant where you can sit and have a drink in the evening in total privacy. There is a garden at the back, it’s quiet, there’s a bbq, everything you could need and the photographs really don’t go far enough to show just what a gem this is. Will definitely stay again.

  • The house is as described so there are no surprises. Therefore, I am happy that my first Airbnb experience went very well. I stayed with my aunt and one year old son and we all enjoyed this place. The house is quite child friendly and has enough space for a toddler to play and explore! I would recommend :)

    Capture a taste of Paradise. Stay in a friendly, self catering air-conditioned apartment set in a small complex within its own well maintained tropical garden. Only 40M from Barbados’ fabulous platinum coast. Safe bathing in warm, crystal-clear, turquoise blue Caribbean Sea. Shops, restaurants & bars, within a short walk. See the monkeys roaming freely, swim with the very friendly turtles or just relax on the sun beds provided in the garden. All this at a very affordable price.
    The apartment is on the ground floor and is quiet - away from passers-by. There is a cool air-conditioned bedroom with en-suite bathroom, a fully-equipped kitchen and a private verandah.
    The Art Studios have been described as a "hidden gem". The apartments are nestled between Discovery Bay Hotel and the Boutique Sandpiper Hotel. There aren't many self-catering places on the Platinum Coast that are this close to the beach. The beach is only 40M walk through the private tropical gardens and all of the facilities of Holetown are within a short walk.

    Lucie2019-09-17T00:00:00Z
  • Great location just a minute away from some of the best beaches on the west coast of Barbados. The apartment has all the amenities we needed including air conditioning in the bedroom.

  • The accommodations were excellent; within walking distance to everything we could need. As hosts, Anthony and Laura exceeded our expectations. They were helpful with directions and gave us a great list of “must dos”. We appreciated the umbrella and all the other small touches. Access to the Beach Club across the street was a bonus.

    Cynthia2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our stay at Laura and Anthony's place in Holetown. It was so convenient to the beach, supermarket, shops, bars, restaurants, and transportation. Laura and Anthony were fabulous hosts, and we hope to return!

    Jim2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • Location, location, location!...did I mention how great the location is? Very convenient; mere steps to groceries, shopping, nightlife, restaurants, and most importantly...the beach! A very comfy and modernly decorated suite with a king size bed. Laura and Anthony bent over backwards to ensure we had everything we needed at anytime and that we had an amazing stay. Would definitely stay here again!! Thanks again for our perfect home away from home in paradise!

    Charm2019-12-22T00:00:00Z
  • The beach club access was incredible and the apartment was in a great location. Laura and Anthony were so flexible and understandable when we had a hold up with check in and were available as we needed them!

    Jenny2019-06-12T00:00:00Z
  • If you are looking for a relaxing spot and away from the busy city drama, this spot is just that. Central to Holetown, majority of the spots are walking distance. The beach is right across and the apartment was next to a grocery store which was convenient when we wanted to stay in and cook. The hosts walked us through the space and everything had a homely vibe to it. it’s your typical one bedroom and the space is very much closed off for we even forgot we had neighbours at points. The access to the resort and pool made it nice for us to take a break from the beach. There are a lot of local spots to eat close by like Just Grillin for cheap eats and Bean n Bagel for a nice breakfast! Would def stay here again if we ever made our way back to Barbados!

    Welcome to #4 Art Studios, a simple little apartment a few steps from the beach. Bars, restaurants & shops to suit everyone within 400 yards make this a really great place to stay, yet quiet & tucked away. You can shop for designer items & dine at 5 star restaurants if you wish, or shop, eat & drink as a local. The apartment has all you could wish for to make your holiday comfortable & easy, plus newly installed AC for a cool nights’ sleep! Contact me for more info before booking if you wish.
    Meschell manages the apartment for us and will visit every day except Saturday. There is also another maid at the condominiums and a gardener/handyman. The apartment is on the first floor. The balcony has louvres which allows the breeze in, but shuts out any rain when necessary! There is plenty of comfortable seating on the balcony area. AIR CONDITIONING installed October 2018 - no extra charge for this. There are efficient fans throughout the apartment to keep you cool at all times if you don’t care for AC. . The kitchen is equipped with everything you should need for a self catering holiday. There is a large fridge-freezer, microwave, cooker and all necessary cutlery and crockery. The bedroom has a LARGE KINGSIZE bed, OR two single beds if you prefer. There is a foldaway bed available, if pre-booked, for a lightweight third guest, and a travel cot suitable for a baby up to about 9 months. There is plenty of storage in the bedroom as well as an area to work at if you bring your business with you on holiday. The separate bathroom has a large walk-in shower area. We provide beach mats for days out. We provide free fast wifi for guests. There is a radio and portable DVD player and various DVD's, as well as USB charging points for tablets and phones. We don't provide a television as there is only one channel on the island. We use our ipad/laptop if we want to access various television channels, or Netflix for example. Three pin 110 voltage power sockets, or three pin UK style 220 voltage power sockets available in the apartment.
    Holetown is a fantastic location for a holiday. Plenty of restaurants and bars, as well as shops and a large supermarket. You can drink and dine like a king if you wish, or like a local - which is what we prefer! But all pockets and demands are catered for. All of this is within very easy walking distance of the apartment. However the apartment itself is tucked away from the hustle and bustle so a quiet holiday can be enjoyed as well.
  • We LOVED our stay at Mary’s place! It was right on the beach, close to numerous amazing restaurants and local fare, shopping, right near the bus stop... just truly paradise! We appreciated the daily cleaning and bed making as well-super nice touch. We REALLY loved our next door neighbor, and everyone in the complex was so nice and helpful. We DID NOT want to leave. THANK YOU Mary for the lovely stay. WE WILL BE BACK!

    Jamie2020-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome locale, perfect layout of space. Neighbors are quite friendly, and everything was easy and in walking distance. Beach is right there.

    Dyanne2020-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay at Mary's Apt 4 was absolutely wonderful. You are truly 25 m from the beach and at night you can hear the waves crashing. Apt 4 is in line with the description and the pictures you see. It's not the biggest place but it is very convenient. Once thing we really liked was all the amenities in the kitchen. You can truly cook a real meal with all that's available. The location in Holetown is perfect. You are on the West Coast, water is picture perfect and warm, plenty of beaches available literally 2 minutes from the time you close the door of the apartment. Mary is a wonderful host and very quick to respond to inquiries or messages. Also, she provides a VERY detailed account of everything you can do in or around Holetown. The amount of information she provided us with was incredible. 2 things you must be aware of: 1) Unless we were unlucky, the AC in the bedroom was set high, so if you are used to cool temperature when you sleep like we are, you may be find it hot to sleep even though there is a fan in the bedroom. 2) You are very close to 1st and 2nd street in Holetown, so you may hear karaoke night from the apartment. I guess we were unlucky again because the participants were not very good ;-) Overall, we really enjoyed our stay and I would recommend Mary's place to everyone and will most likely return in the future.

    Frank2020-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • To start off, we booked this trip in late January 2019 for Christmas 2019, and Mary was immediately (and ongoing throughout the year), easily accessible and quick to respond to any and all queries we had, no matter how trivial it may have been . The main information package, and all of the other additions that were provided, gave clear expectations of what we could expect and where, or to whom, we needed to look to for any situation. This was of utmost importance to us, as it was our first experience going to Barbados, and also our first venture into the land of AirBnB. It really eased a lot of the anxiety we may have had, having only experienced all-inclusive resorts in the past. The apartment felt more homey than we could have expected. The pictures on the site do not do justice to how bright, clean, and comfortable it is. Nothing against the photos, it's just that nice. The towels were clean and plentiful, and the blender and coffee press were a bonus. We decided early that we were going to utilize the restaurants in the area instead of doing much cooking ourselves (mainly due to the grocery prices being higher than expected), and had a plethora of great places from which to choose. The other consideration to this was that for the short time we were there we would be able to experience the Bajan cuisine. There is definitely a British influence in what is offered on many menus, so seek out some of the smaller venues for food that is more authentically Barbados. The location could not be better in terms of distance from any variety of restaurants or amenities you would want. A quick five minute walk to the grocery store is the furthest you have to venture. We did have some confusion from our own online research as to what was open when over the holidays (FYI almost everything is closed on Christmas and Boxing Day - as it is here in Canada), but we had enough supplies to get us through, and what we didn't have we could easily get at the gas station that was open both days. Although the apartment does not face the water, you can constantly hear the ocean from there. Very soothing. We also enjoyed the short walk to the beach after sundown to listen to the waves in the dark. The grounds are very neatly kept (great job Michael!). We are smokers while on vacation, and while this is a non-smoking location, there is an area in back that is provided to smoke which we found a convenient and relaxing area. We watched the mongoose, birds, and small lizards from this area daily, and on two mornings were lucky to have had a family of three green monkeys take their breakfast. Don't feed them, they've got plenty there to eat. Meschelle and the rest of the staff were friendly and accommodating, even allowing us to check out a bit later on our final day as our flight did not depart until after 4 pm. The situation of the three buildings (is that considered a compound?) was communal, in that you were constantly able to interact with all of the people staying there. While we are typically people that keep to themselves, the other residents (some short-term, some long-term, some owners as we understand) were so lovely and helpful for us as newbies that it was an endearing aspect to the place. All in all, we would absolutely recommend this apartment at Art Studios!

  • Excellent location and a wonderful vacation rental. Mary was fantastic to deal with and she was very helpful.

    Jennifer2019-11-09T00:00:00Z
  • My husband and I stayed at Mary’s apartment for a week in October. The location is steps away from the beach! You don’t even have to take anything with you when leaving the apartment, in case you decide you want to go back and grab a book to read on the beach, it will take you 30 seconds! The apartment is spotless clean and the ladies who are taking care of it come every day to tidy up. There is everything needed in the apartment: pans and pots, cutlery, towels, beach towels, beach mats and lots of books to choose from! There is an AC in the apartment, but we used it only once at night, as usually there was a nice breeze during the night time. The location is very close to bus stops going to Bridgetown, gas station, bank, supermarket and small gift shops. We were really pleased with our stay and definitely planning to come back and stay at Mary’s place again!

  • A very comfortable stylish apartment, in a quite safe area near to amenities. I particularly liked the front veranda area. I would like to stay again.

    Ben2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • Erin and Robin were wonderful hosts, and very easy to communicate with. Checkin was a breeze, and the place was perfect for our needs. Clean, quiet, and minutes from the beach, grocery store, and restaurants. We had the opportunity to meet both Erin and Robin during our stay and they were lovely, accommodating, and provided great tips. Definitely recommend!

  • My little family of 3 had a fantastic experience at Frangipani Aprts! Clean, cozy and welcoming after a long day exploring the island or at the beach. Well equipped and exactly what we needed. The little garden was perfect for my 2.5 year old to play and enjoy. The location was ideal and there is so much To see and do within minutes of the aprtment. We will certainly be back again soon! Robin and Erin were very responsive and SO pleasant to deal with. Happy customers :)

  • Great apartment in central location... thanks for a great stay!

    Louise2019-12-20T00:00:00Z
  • This apartment is amazing. It has all the basic amenities needed for a fab stay near the beach. Everything you need is within a 5 minute walk (coffee shops, bakery, bank ATM, beach bars, restaurants, supermarkets, gas station - 24 hour - and more, like shops - Chattel Village and the upmarket Limegrove centre.) The post office, police station and magistrates are also close by in Holetown. The location is very quiet and private. The laundry washer is at the back of the block and easy to use, with lots of drying lines available. Television has many channels, including films. The big hit here is access to the Beach House, with a private pool, sun loungers, bar and restaurant. The apartment itself is super clean, and the bed is amazingly comfortable. We never slept so well! Top marks! We will definitely come back next year for the Barbados Open Water Swim Festival.

    Richard2019-11-13T00:00:00Z
  • We booked 2 weeks at Frangipani myself and my wife, the apartment is in an ideal location close to everything shops, supermarket, beach, bar and restaurants. The place is clean and spacious we cooked in a few times ( no problems with that ) plenty of crockery, lounged about on the sofa, Internet is super fast the apartment is very cosy. Robin is very attentive and responsive within 15 minutes we would get a reply. There is a washing machine in the back of the property and an area to dry the laundry in the back garden. We used the beach club once(swimming pool and bar area is available) but we loved Folkestone beach Marine reserve 5 minutes drive or a couple of bus stops north, take a pair of Goggles & you’ll snorkel for free in a beautiful area full of colourful fishes. If you don’t have a car 5 minutes walk is the closest beach beautiful too. Noises are non existent at night as the apartments are nested in a very quiet location. The Frangipani trees in the front make the whole experience rather romantic and suggestive. Thanks Robin See you very very soon

    Holetown, Saint James, Barbados

    This exceptional villa features vaulted ceilings and a crisp, white aesthetic to give each room space and light. Just 1km from the popular Holetown on the West Coast and only 100m from the beach along a private tree lined path. Spread out on the plush outdoor sofa and dive into the shimmering private pool before firing up a BBQ on the patio surrounded by lush and mature gardens providing complete privacy. Alison the Housekeeper is very popular with guests and will look after your every need. She can organise a chef, driver, butler etc to fully enhance your stay if preferred.
    This superbly styled home makes for a perfect luxurious getaway a mere 3 minute walk to the beach - if that. Absolutely ideal for groups of friends & family looking for their very own paradise location. It also suits couples looking for an island “home away from home” or a romantic break. Comfortable & calm. We love to go that extra mile so you feel like you are at home. Superking size beds, dressing room and large master bathroom. Two further bedrooms with vaulted ceilings and own bathrooms each. Both can be made up as twin or superking size beds. The spiral staircase continues to the top of tower where there is a small office with printer and amenities. Alison the Housekeeper ensures your stay is is complete luxury and offers further babysitting duties if required. We guarantee an absolutely private stay. No sharing, no disturbances. One of only 3 private roads on the whole island. Just remember, the tower has a spiral staircase. It’s fun and unique but not for children under 5 years old or anyone who would struggle with these type of stairs. A chilled bottle of white wine awaits each guest on arrival. We have provided teas, coffee and snacks so all that’s left for you to do is relax and settle in after your journey. Or if you prefer, a dip in your own private pool, or you can enjoy a refreshing shower, as we have stocked the bathrooms with gentle toiletries and luxury towels.
    The property sits just a short stroll along a quaint tree-lined path to one of the quietest palm tree lined beaches, making it feel like your own private beach. Walking 2 minutes around the corner, you will find a selection of fun water activities & a 5-star hotel beach bar. A further 20 min walk along the sand to Holetown where the local chattel shops, tasty bistros, and bars await. The 3 bed private house can be rented on its own or with the 2-bed cottage in the garden making it 5 beds.
  • Viv’s place is a real treasure! Beautiful, comfortable and well equipped with everything one needs for the perfect holiday. The house and neighborhood are very unique and quite unlike any other place we have stayed in our 20 years of coming to Barbados. A lovely private little enclave, but conveniently located to shops and restaurants and activities. The kitchen is very well equipped and a pleasure to cook in. The house is filled with lots of thoughtful touches that all contribute to a wonderful holiday. And the staff are friendly, efficient and a pleasure to deal with. We throughly enjoyed our three weeks at Tower House and hope to return in the future.

    Chuck2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • Fabulous place totally lives up to its description. The location is perfect for walking into Holetown and the beaches are beautiful. Alison and Celeste who take care of the house and all your needs are lovely. Can’t recommend enough already booked for next year!

    Claire2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • The listing is extremely accurate and the house really is as fabulous as it looks in the photos. Communications with Viv were excellent. Celeste, Allison, and everyone looking after the property are fantastic people, extremely efficient and not at all intrusive. The best little beach is 5 minutes away. We had a fantastic holiday and hope to visit again soon.

    Richard2019-12-24T00:00:00Z
  • I am a first time user of AirBnB. I have so say our experience has been wonderful. Much better than staying at a hotel. We are plotting our next visit to Barbados. The location is great, a short walk to the beach, which for most of the week we had to ourselves. And what a beach! The house is so comfortable and tastefully furnished. The pool and terrace are fantastic. The family using both extensively for meals and those mandatory evening cocktails. Wonderful for fuelling those great conversations. Alison our housekeeper was also really helpful and friendly. Other highlights were Mount Gay distillery, Oiystin Fish Fry and the Cliff Restaurant celebrating our daughters graduation. Overall a wonderful and memorable experience. Thank you!

    Andy2019-09-21T00:00:00Z
  • The house, location, and people were all incredible, which is what made our trip here so memorable. The house was spotless thanks to the housekeeper Alison, and the property was very well maintained. Whether we were lounging by the pool outside, eating on the patio, or cooling off in one of the air-conditioned bedrooms, all aspects of the home were very comfortable. We came to Barbados mostly to enjoy the pristine beaches, and this location did not disappoint. Only a short walk stood between us and what was essentially our own private beach. Every morning we would spend a few hours at the beach, then went back to eat lunch and cool off at the pool. If you're looking for restaurants and bars, Holetown is very nice and is only a quick walk/drive away. Last but not least, Viv, Celeste and Alison were all amazing hosts. Very responsive to all our questions and they assisted with every aspect of our trip (transportation, excursions, recommendations, etc). If you're looking for a private getaway in paradise, look no further. For a family of 6, this trip was everything we could've asked for and more.

    Tom2019-08-24T00:00:00Z
  • An elegant & stunning villa close to many picturesque west coast beaches & great restaurants. Celeste & Alison are a great team who look after QT & your family with warmth & a lot of humour! Celeste organised a fun & educational night time historical tour of the Garrison area which had plenty of surprises! Will definitely return to QT following our restful 3 week break. See you all soon & thank you!

    Josie2019-08-12T00:00:00Z
  • One word best describes our recent vacation at Queens Tower - AMAZING!! Viv, Celeste, and Allison were all great, and the house was exceptional. The house was very clean, spacious, and tastefully decorated. All the beds and furniture were very comfortable. We had no problem getting a good night’s sleep. The property was lush and well maintained. Our favorite part of our vacation was, of course, the beach. It was only a short walk from house. Once there, it was like you were in your own little tropical paradise. The water was absolutely spectacular and the sand was incredibly soft. The best part was that you had the entire beach to yourself every day. We typically spent the earlier part of the day at the beach and then finished the afternoons at the pool. The worst part of our vacation was leaving Queens Tower. My kids said that was their best vacation ever, and I would have to agree.

    Michael2019-07-20T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful stay at the tower house! It was the perfect girls getaway. Viv, Celeste and Alison were all wonderful and very quick with responses from beginning to end. We hope to be back again soon!

  • We Love Barbados! This was not our first time on island, but it was our first time in an Airbnb. Lisbeth was great at communicating with us before our arrival. Patrick was at the airport to greet us on arrival and drove us over to the Supercentre in Warrens to pick up breakfast supplies for the next morning. We continued on to Sunset Crest, where he gave us a little tour of the area, and then we were met by Lisbeth at our little cottage. We were given all the info on running everything, plus the keys and Beach Club card. Breakfast on the verandah the next morning and we headed out to the Holetown Supercentre to pick up groceries for the week. There is a shortcut to the grocery store through the walkway at the end of the street. Very convenient! We made good use of the Beach Club everyday and loved it. Met some fellow Canucks by the pool and had good times with them. The Bar opens at 11:00am and restaurant opens at 12:00. We ate at the restaurant a couple of times for lunch and found the food very good, although a bit pricier. Very handy though. Loved their Rum Punch! They keep a big thermos of cold water on the bar, so if you bring a water bottle you can fill it any time to keep hydrated. We recommend eating at Just Grillin which is right beside the Chattel Houses. Ate there twice and loved it, very reasonable and good portions. Also really enjoyed eating at the Bean n Bagel too-they are only open until 3:00pm. No need to rent a car, everything is so handy, we were very pleased with the location! Our little cottage was perfectly fine for one person or a couple. Livingroom furniture is comfortable. It had all necessary appliances in the kitchen , very well stocked. There is a barbecue just off the verandah, Patrick showed us how to use it. A washing machine and drying lines too. We hung our bath towels out every morning on the line to dry and freshen up. Shower is quite large, good water pressure and hot water. We found the bed very comfortable! Hubby has a bad back so we were very happy with the bed-good size too. A/C in the bedroom worked great and was quiet. There is a safe in the bedroom closet! We loved having the extra space on the verandah! Such a sweet spot to hang out. The curtains were such a great addition, we closed them in the afternoon to keep out the hot sun. Perfect! At the end of our week Patrick drove us back to the airport for our flight out. Wished we'd had a longer stay! They are such a lovely couple, so easy to talk to-felt like we'd known them all our life. Thank you Lisbeth and Patrick for hosting us! We will be back and stay longer next time! All the best!

    Christine2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • What a little gem! this place was perfect for us . Patrick picked us up from the airport for half the fee of a normal taxi and explained about a lot of the history of the Island. The apartment is near the beach , restaurants and the supermarket; It was very well equipped even beach towels were provided. Thank you Lisbeth and Patrick you are perfect hosts.

    Elaine2019-12-17T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice hosts (picked us up at the airport for 30 USD), fully equipped kitchen, AC in the bedroom, mosquito net around the bed (saved my life), great located (5 mins walk to the beaches and big supermarket nearby)

    Andreas2019-12-02T00:00:00Z
  • Lizbeth and Patrick made our stay extra special. It was like having family right in Barbados. Patrick picked us up at the airport, took us to the grocery store and they both took us on an amazing tour of the island! The cottage is quaint and cozy and has everything you will need for your stay. There are lots of restaurants and a grocery store within walking distance and the pool and the beach are really close too. Already booked again!! Thanks Lizbeth and Patrick for a great week!

    Amanda2019-09-14T00:00:00Z
  • This well appointed and cozy villa is in very close proximity to beaches, Lime grove shops, the neighborhood pool and several restaurants and eateries along the coast. Lisbeth and Patrick are impeccable hosts and just very down to earth and helpful. I highly recommend this get away. With several beaches to chose from, local steel band and surf side options it’s the perfect home away from home. Patrick went out of his way to meet me at the airport after a significant delay. I enjoyed very much the island tour and the stop for coconut water.

    12th South2019-07-29T00:00:00Z
  • The Airbnb is located in Holetown about 10 minutes walking distance to the beach and the pool at Sunset Crest. The place is quiet, comfortable and all commodities are provided (i.e. full kitchen, washing machine, BBQ). There are several restaurants around if you do not wish to cook everyday. The owners are friendly, and very helpful. It was a pleasure staying at the small house connected to theirs.

    France2019-07-08T00:00:00Z
  • I had a very nice stay here! Lisbeth and Patrick are very nice and helpful for getting around and offering tips for what to do. The place is in a very good location just a couple minutes walk to the beach, grocery store, shops and restaurants. Very beautiful space would definitely recommend

    Dena2019-06-26T00:00:00Z
  • Lisbeth and Patrick are wonderful hosts and we had a lovely time at the Sunset Crest villa. The accommodation is like in the pictures, with everything you need (including visits from cats and dogs if you want :)) It was especially useful that beach towels were provided. The location itself is great - five minute walk to most things in Holetown (including the medical centre, restaurants and the beach). It's also a good place to catch a bus if you're not renting a car. But the best part was Lisbeth and Patrick's hospitality. They are lovely people and go out of their way to make your stay comfortable. Patrick picked us from the airport (for a very reasonable fee) and drove us around Holetown to make sure we know where everything is. They also took us on a tour of the north/east side of the island, which we really enjoyed and we enjoyed their company. We will be coming back to Barbados and will definitely stay with Lisbeth and Partick again!

    Igor2020-01-29T00:00:00Z
  • This property is very spacious, nicely decorated and felt like a mini resort with the outdoor deck and pool space. It’s situated in a great part of the island where I felt safe, there are restaurants, beach bars and beaches. Everything in the house was functional and had the necessities needed for a comfortable stay. Natalie the property manager was very nice and accommodating. I’m glad I found this gem and hope to return one day!

  • We had a lovely stay at Porters Gate 24. Conveniently located just a few minutes walk from the beach and few minutes drive from Folkstone Marine Park (spectacular snorkelling destination) and Holetown (great restaurants and shopping). The unit was very clean, modern and well equipped. The backyard was a nice private oasis and the kids had a blast in the plunge pool. The owner and property management team were very kind, responsive and professional. Definitely recommend.

    Zoltan2020-03-19T00:00:00Z
  • WOW. Rarely am I this impressed by a level of service demonstrated once - nevermind consistently - over a two week period. Shain, Kerrie and the Blue Sky Luxury Team achieved what few rarely do day after day - they continuously displayed personable, professional attention to detail and responsiveness of service. From the fast track at the airport, to stocking our kitchen, ensuring prompt repair of washer/dryer issues, suggesting best beach spots, amazing taxi service ... no question went unanswered! Porters Gate 24 on its own was an oasis of a home away from home that was elevated to a higher level with BSL's platinum service. The pairing of the two provided us with a blissful, fun-filled, relaxation inducing experience that we'll crave again and again. Blue Sky Luxury is now synonymous with Barbados! Thank you for setting the standard so high!

    Carol2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent villa has every thing you need for home from home accommodation. A little sun trap, just a tip sun has gone by 3pm, if you need more sun, then the beach is just across the road or on site pool. You will need a car to get out and about- we had one for a week and explored the island. Loan Ranger and Top Deck are the nearest bars, and Holetown is only about 20 mins walk, or the bus on main route. BSL are excellent and always on hand to help out, Shain was my contact and was very helpful. Villa on a nice gated complex and extremely safe. I would recommend this property.

    Vanessa2020-01-09T00:00:00Z

  • Very lovely space with incredibly well equipped kitchen - pool deck in the sun 8am-3pm and central pool useful for extra sunbathing & warmer swims! Two great beaches within 10 mins walk and very short drive to Massys supermarket. BSL didn't show up for check-in but more than made up for this even sending someone round with BBQ gas on Christmas Day!

The accommodation was very clean, with everything necessary (except a mosquito net, had free AC, a comfortable bed and a large shower with hot water. There was also a beautiful terrace with a small pool and garden for all apartments. The hostess Stephanie was incredibly personable and helpful, she answered all our questions very quickly and easily and even picked us up from our 1st accommodation for free! We also booked an island tour with her and with her and didn't regret a second!

  • Great place just 5 minutes walk to the beach. Its a very cute apartment with a basic kitchen but everything you need. It was also very clean and quiet .

    Shawna2019-07-06T00:00:00Z
  • Stephanie was super attentive and very flexible. I had an unexpected change to my flight and was able to accommodate me perfectly, despite my very early AM arrival. The place itself is great, and comes with a fully stocked kitchen. I was also lucky enough to have great neighbors, which added to the overall experience.

    Gabriel2019-04-22T00:00:00Z
  • This was such a nice place to stay! The pool was nice to have and it was beautiful and quiet.

    Lauren2019-04-20T00:00:00Z
  • Great private spot in a very convenient location!

    Victoria2018-07-14T00:00:00Z
  • Stephanie was very hospitable and kind. She accommodated us last minute, and the rooms have everything you need. The place is right behind Massey for any grocery shopping and the area is very accessible - the Bridgetown bus, Speightstown bus and Oistins bus pass on the street in front of Massey. The pool was warm and the AC kept up cool. 😊

  • We stayed at Sungazer in January. We enjoyed it so much that we couldn’t wait to come back .We have just spent another two weeks there and our experience was even better than last time. it just feels like home when you arrive. We particularly noted that the television system has been updated so you can now watch sport movies entertainments News etcNot that we watched a lot of TV as we were out most of the time enjoying ourselves at the beach club ,and the various bars and restaurants which are so close to the accommodation. We intend to book again next year

    Denis2019-12-02T00:00:00Z
  • This was our 2nd stay at this apartment and we have a 3rd booked already for next year. The apartment is lovely and clean, everything you need and in a perfect location to stroll to the beach or pool. Very easy to jump on the bus or pop to the supermarket. Plenty of restaurants and food vendors nearby. Love it. Looking forward to next time.

    Louise2019-11-15T00:00:00Z
  • This apartment was just perfect, great location right near some beach bars and 5 mins from the supermarket. The apartment itself felt very safe and spacious enough for us two friends. Marcia was very welcoming and helped with any questions we had & arranged our taxis with Jason who was also very nice! I would 100% visit again!!

    Lauren2019-10-06T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely small accommodation. Everything you could need in the kitchen, could do with some drawers for clothes. Great location

  • Clean and comfortable within walking distance everything holetown has to offer

    Jeff2019-08-18T00:00:00Z
  • This lovely apartment was perfect for our trip to Holetown. We usually stay at one of the hotels on the West Coast, and this apartment was within 10 mins walk of all our usual haunts, including Surfside, First Street, and Papa Earl's food van. Great access to the Beach House with a lovely pool, bar and restaurant. The apartment was clean and tidy and included everything we needed for our stay. The supermarket is less than 10 min walk so no trouble there. We were met by Marcia who is just so lovely and helpful. The cleaner came along once during our stay which was more than enough as there were plenty of towels etc. Perfect for a couple, a solo traveller or 2 friends or, like me and my mum. I'll definitely consider stating here again especially as the value is amazing too.

    Louise2019-06-11T00:00:00Z
  • I have stayed several times at Naheed’s place and it’s always lovely, beautifully equipped , tastefully decorated and furnished and so conveniently located. And Naheed is incredibly helpful so check In and out are stress free. I hope to go back!

    Holetown, Saint James, Barbados

    This spacious, comfortable two bedroom house is located in Sunset Crest on the platinum coast of Barbados only a short walk from the beach and some of the West Coast's best dining and nightlife.
    This house can easily sleep 6 guests. This cute looking cottage is quite deceptively large inside. You enter through the front door to an open and relaxed living room with a flat screen tv (cable tv) and sonos sound system. From here you walk through to the kitchen/dining area where you will find our wonderful old kitchen table and a kitchen with everything you should need (even a waffle iron for waffle lovers!!). The kitchen leads out to the back patio which has another dining and sitting area where you may even spot a green monkey stealing the mangoes or avocados from our trees! At the back door you will find our games corner. This cupboard is full of games and toys of all sorts, for all ages (even a few water pistols and floaty toys). There are also books around the house that you are very welcome to read. Upstairs you will find 2 large bedrooms, both with ensuite bathrooms. Both bedrooms have ceiling fans and air conditioning. The main bedroom has a king bed with a lovely lounge area to sit and relax. The second room, the blue room, has bunk beds along with another king bed. As a guest in our home you will have access to our community pool, the Sunset Crest Beach Club. This is a short 3 minute walk from the house. The Beach Club is a wonderful seafront facility next door to the Beach House restaurant and bar. Here you will have the use of lounge chairs and changing facilities. You can also access both the beach and the boardwalk from the pool. A sunset rum punch at the pool is a great way to end any day!
    Sunset Crest is a mature, quiet and safe community in Holetown, one of the four towns in Barbados. If you walk out the door and head towards the water you will find coffee shops, restaurants (from family casual to more formal and glitzy), along with the fruit vendors at the end of the round, the medical facility, supermarket, boutiques and more. If you head inland you will wander into the shaded streets of Sandy Lane, where you can meander among the homes of the rich and famous.
  • This house is wonderfully stylish (but not overdone, by any means), clean, nicely located, and, above all, comfortable. As soon as we walked in we felt like we were using an old college friend's vacation home. The kitchen was nicely appointed with a variety of pots and pans, utensils, and appliances. The patio in the back was a great place to wait out the morning showers and kick back and read a book, or have a nightcap at day's end. The bbq grill worked perfectly, better than the one we have at home. Beds were very comfortable with very nice linens, and there was an abundance of towels (bath and beach). The location of the house is great, truly walkable to get anything you could need or want. The pool at the beach club was wonderful, as was the restaurant and bar (great happy hour in the afternoon!). The small beach next to the beach club was great and uncrowded. Definitely bring a snorkel and mask; we forgot ours. There are several restaurants and bars within walking distance, as well as a big, a well-stocked grocery store that sells both beer and liquor. We did not have a chance to do any exploring other than a ride up to a random beach in Speightstown, but Holetown looks to be a great jumping-off point to head out and see the sights of Barbados, of which there are many. Anne Marie, Austin, and Kim were all wonderful to deal with. Communication before and during our trip was great and helpful. We were pressed to head home due to the Covid-19 situation (in the US, not Barbados), and the homeowners were very gracious about our early departure. We will definitely try to get back to Barbados and the Purty Loft sometime in the near future.

    Karen2020-03-18T00:00:00Z
  • The Purty House in Sunset Crest is a beautiful home in a fantastic location. The house and owners are welcoming, check in and out were easy, and the banana bread awaiting us upon arrival was tasty. 5 out of stars for sure!

    Elizabeth2020-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • Anne’s home is beautiful! It is in a great location just off Holetown itself and a perfect location to explore Barbados. Her home is stylishly furnished, spotlessly clean with all of the amenities you need, a real home from home. We enjoyed a beautiful week and were sad to leave. Would highly recommend this home to other holidaymakers.

    Pauline2019-11-02T00:00:00Z
  • Had an amazing stay at Purty Loft! Such a beautiful house which is so comfortable and has all the amenities you will need to make you feel right at home. The location is excellent and within walking distance to everything in Holetown, including a short walk to the beach and pool! Anne Marie is an excellent host who responds quickly to questions and can arrange things to do locally or just give you some suggestions. Can't recommend this place enough for families as it was perfect for ours. Hope we can return soon!

    Trevor2019-05-22T00:00:00Z
  • Stayed for 2 weeks and they went by in a flash. The location is really unbeatable. The home itself is perfect for families. There's even a built-in baby gate on the stairs. Everything you could need is there. The twice weekly cleaning service was a pleasant surprise. Will definitely be staying again!

    Adrian2019-04-04T00:00:00Z
  • We have just come back from visiting Barbados and stayed at the Loft. Everything was fantastic...Kim met us at the Loft the day we arrived and gave us a tour of the house and 30 minutes later a fresh banana bread was delivered for us. The location was a 5 minute walk to the beach, restaurants, grocery store and shopping...the loft itself had everything that we needed...kitchen was well stocked with all the necessities of home...the patio seemed to be our favourite part of the house where we could see monkeys in the trees and in the garden...Tristan the resident cat who would come by at given time of the day to get a scratch on the head and lounge beside you on the patio furniture was a friendly reminder of home (if you visit the Loft bring kitty treats, Tristan loved them). There was a welcome note with all the ins and outs of the house and nearby places to visit. Anne contacted us during our visit to say that the whales were breaching at the the North Point of the island if we were up for a short road trip. North point was beautiful and seemed to be in a different country with the rock walls and churning ocean below, although we did not see the whales it was a spectacular sight. We appreciated all the little touches that were offered at the Loft. If you are thinking of Barbados this is the place to stay!

    Jennifer2019-03-20T00:00:00Z
  • Wow! Absolutely Amazing! The house is better than the pictures, better than the description, everything in it’s right place, comfortable, stylish, convenient, if we could put a 6-Star rating we would. The house had everything you needed, from a waffle maker, to a portable ice bag to keep our food and drinks cold during our daily outings, even re-usable ice packs were made available. Every little detail was thought of! Books to look at or even read, so many to chose from, I was lucky to go through 2 of them during my stay. Television and Wifi were also available when we wanted to just lay back. The house, is exactly as the host mentioned, a short walking distance to the Beach Club to enjoy the swimming pool by the beach, or even walk to the beach next to the Beach Club. The community is quiet, we all felt safe in this area, with no worries whatsoever. Local restaurants to chose from, local grocery stores, restaurants, all within easy walking distance. In addition to being perfectly located on the island as your gateway to visit the complete island. Being 30-minute drive to any location on the island, we visited almost 2 different beaches per day around the island, visited Caves, Botanical Gardens, Distilleries, Animal Reserves, etc. All within a short drive from the house. Anne, I know we are being redundant, but again a big thank you for letting us enjoy your home during our holidays in Barbados, and unless we decide to invest in your area soon, we will communicate with you again to experience this amazing experience over again. Pierre (from Montreal, Canada)

    Pierre2019-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • This is a very stylish and comfortable home suitable for any family or group looking for all the comforts of home with the added benefit of the beach and pool in close proximity. There are flexible sleeping arrangements and lots of space. I found the property larger than I was expecting. Each bedroom has an en-suite and dressing area. There was also a WC downstairs. The kitchen is very well equiped and there are very good TV/media facilities. The house and the area felt very safe and the local community very friendly. The outside area is well maintained with private parking, tropical gardens and a basketball hoop which our son enjoyed. We were visited by a couple of green monkeys on one occasion which was novel. The local supermarket is a 10 minute walk and full of Waitrose products in addition to products from Caribbean and US. Locally we found Just Grillin and Zaccios best value food. We enjoyed the local beaches and also Carlisle Bay in Bridgetown. My husband and son enjoyed Rotis from the Indian Grill. The hosts were very friendly and helpful and we really appreciated the banana bread awaiting us after our long day of travels. There is a nice housekeeper who cleans a couple of times a week. The beach club pool is excellent, with access to the beach where small fish swim around your feet. There is a bar next to the pool where you can enjoy a beer or rum punch whilst relaxing on a sun lounger or watching the sunset. I definitely recommend the property and would return without hesitation. Thank you hosts.

  • This apartment is a sweet and perfect place to stay on the west coast. Set in a residential area a stones throw from perfect white sandy beaches. There are plenty of places to dine out whatever your budget. The apartment is extremely clean and quite spacious with everything you need for a short stay. We were very sad to leave and most definitely would return.

    Kim2020-03-19T00:00:00Z
  • Crystal was so helpful. Her place is in a fantastic location only a short stroll from the beach. A really lovely stay.

    Ally2020-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • Very convenient location in Holetown.. wonderful place for 2 people to enjoy the sun and sights of Barbados. Crystal is a great host

    Bruce2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • This place is absolutely amazing and Crystal is a wonderful host! It’s sparkling clean, simple and minimal but has beautiful touches that make you feel welcomed and home. Located in a quite area but walking distance to all the action. It wasn’t necessary but I did get a car for a few days to reach more places and really appreciate how central the apartment is both with and without car. Loved having my morning coffee and journaling on the porch. I already recommended it to my friends heading to Barbados and will definitely be back myself!

    Valerie2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Great apartment, clean and tidy, superb location and Crystal could not have been more helpful. Definitely recommend it.

    John2020-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • Great stay! I’ll definitely come back.

    Brittny2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • We cannot say enough good things about Crystal! Amazing hospitality, she provided so much insight about the area, things to do, places to eat, etc. She even went out of her way to help us book a catamaran Cruise last minute. The apartment is located in a great quiet neighborhood that is a short walk into Holetown (which had great dining and shop options) and to a few lovely beaches. We also rented a car and drove around the island ourselves, and it was easy to park right out front. Highly recommend staying at Crystal's apartment for a relaxing and personal touch to your vacation!

    Daniel2020-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay, very clean, modern, the patio is nice, close to the beach, grocery store, restaurants and coffee shops. Host Crystal is a very friendly and helpful! Strongly recommend for everyone!

  • Absolutely wonderful! The cottage is so spacious and equipped with everything you did and didn’t know you needed! Celine has prompt communication and all the property staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. The location was quiet and private, but still just minutes from beautiful beaches, shopping in hole town, and lots of great restaurants. Thanks for an unforgettable stay!

    Jacqueline2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • A great place to stay, great attention to detail and always very clean.

    Annabel2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • Thank you so much! We are so thankful for this wonderful week with Celine, it was just wonderful and we will be back

    Katja2020-01-24T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed for a week at the Cottage des Anges and enjoyed every day of the stay! Céline and Jacques were perfect hosts, who responded immediately to any question and even had the best rum punch prepared for us on arrival. Thanks to the housekeeping team the cottage was very clean and fully equipped with everything we needed. The possibility to use the nearby beach club membership was really great. We would definitely recommend to stay at this lovely cottage and would love to return some day!

    Friederike2019-12-09T00:00:00Z
  • Wow, what a place to stay! We spent 12 nights here and loved every minute of it. The Cottage des Anges more than lives up to its Airbnb listing details - it's in a fantastic, quiet location, a stone's throw from a beautiful secluded beach, and in easy reach of the shops, bars and restaurants of Holetown. The house itself is pristine and the lovely housekeepers, Susan & Caroline, keep the place spotless throughout your stay. If you like to cook, as we do, the kitchen is fantastically equipped and there's a gas BBQ in the lovely garden. The wi-fi reception and speed is excellent throughout the property and there is great mobile phone reception. We also loved the stylish, contemporary Caribbean decor and furnishings which make for an extremely relaxing and comfortable stay. Another real bonus for guests is free membership of the Fairmont Royal Pavilion Beach Club, which is almost next door and provides free use of beach beds/umbrellas and the beach-bar/cafe. We spent many a lazy day there! The hosts, Celine & Jaccques are so friendly and hospitable and their attention to detail is spot on. Lovely touches like a welcome bottle of Celine's home-made rum punch and tropical flowers really added to our enjoyment. So a big thank you to our hosts for a five-star-plus stay!

    Jonathan2019-10-01T00:00:00Z
  • We enjoyed a fantastic stay here in the lovely cottage. Has everything you will need and is in a great location - easy walk to top restaurants, beach is so close. Great hosts will ensure you have a great stay. Would highly recommend

    Adam2019-09-06T00:00:00Z
  • Celine's cottage was a great find! Besides the space being fresh and comfortable, there were several nice touches: a delicious rum punch, milk and juice for my little one, small groceries to get us started, daily cleaning services, fresh beach towels daily, and the pass to the Fairmont Beach Club. As a note, while the beach club offers water activities, these are paid extra. Martin was our host for the time we were visiting. He was extremely helpful and a pleasure to deal with! He went above and beyond, got us some fresh fish and took us to a secluded spot in Paynes Bay to swim with the turtles. He also told us about La Baguette, a small French bakery with delicious pastries just south the main road from the cottage. The airport transfer with Ronald worked perfectly. We ended up hiring him for other trips around the island. Ronald was extremely patient and polite, and a great conversationalist. He was also wonderful with my son, who loved his first tasting of a real coconut that Ronald brought for him! We loved enjoying breakfast on the veranda every morning and made friends with Charly, the sparrow (yes, we named him!) :) We saw a monkey crossing over the fence, and marvelled at the daily morning visits of the hummingbirds to the garden flowers! I'll definitely recommend Celine's cottage to others!

    Iara2019-08-24T00:00:00Z
  • Outstanding! We have been to Barbados several times staying at Airbnb places each time. This was our favourite place by far! There are so many thoughtful touches to the cottage, it truly felt like home. The cottage was sparkling clean, and so well appointed! All the dishes, utensils, pots and pans you could need. The fridge was even stocked with some basic supplies so we didn't have to go shopping right away! So nice. The private beach access is really nice and very secluded. The beach club access was an added bonus that we used daily. These are truly the most beautiful beaches on the island. Celine was a great host, and we will definitely book this place again! Thank-you Celine for your hospitality!

    This private 1-bedroom apartment is part of a terrace of four and features an open plan living room, fully equipped kitchen and a garden. Located on the West Coast of Barbados it is within walking distance of several amenities. Entry is via security gates to a covered veranda. Foldaway doors reveal the open plan living room, with fully equipped kitchen. A radio and mobile top up telephone is made available to you as well as a DVD, CD and MP3 player. You are allowed free use of a private shared swimming pool at the beach club by the sea. This is a fantastic facility where you can swim in the sea or pool and then sunbathe to the sound of the sea. The restaurant located at the beach club - The Beach House - serves coffee, lunch and dinner from 11 am. I highly recommend staying for the sunset as this is spectacular. You can stay all day as there are toilet facilities as well. Just to the left of the beach club offers great swimming with no corals and just sand under your feet. This apartment is within walking distance of everything you need. The bus stop is 3-minutes walk away which takes you into Bridgetown (South) or Speightstown (North). It is a fantastic experience to use the local buses. Barbadians are very friendly and colourful. Their smiles will keep you coming back! It is a home away from home in paradise. You will have access to the following: Shared Pool Parking Our interaction can be as much or as little as you desire. I do not live on site; however I am happy to assist in any way I can to ensure you feel at home. Coast/Beach The beautiful Sandy Lane beach is only 5 minute walk away. You can walk for hours on the beach (depending on the tide). There is also a nice beach just to the left of the beach club where you can walk or swim. To get there is about 3-minutes walk from the apartment. It is very relaxing to walk on the beach to Paynes Bay and back which takes about 2 hours or just sit and watch the sea and listen to the waves. You can also walk or jog at the nine hole golf club (close by) which takes about 2 hours as well depending how fast you walk. Golf A 5-minutes drive takes you to the world famous Sandy Lane golf course and other golf courses are within easy reach. You are within walking distance of the 9-hole Sandy Lane course where you can see the green monkeys. Special Interest Holidays Take your pick of swimming, sailing, snorkeling, golfing, a day at the races, watching polo, horse riding on the beach, tennis, walking, diving or just relax in the tropical sun on the nearby beaches. Tax-free shopping is available in Holetown and there are several golf and polo clubs open to the public on the island. The airport is about 25 mins away depending on the traffic. It is not necessary to rent a car as everything is on your doorstep. However it is always interesting to explore the island with a car to allow you a glimpse of the East and North Coasts which boast spectacular scenery of the Atlantic. I recommend seeing the Atlantic side as this is totally different from the calm West Coast and simply gorgeous. This is a surfers paradise. Holetown is about a 10 minutes walk away. The new Limegrove shopping centre with restaurants etc is also within walking distance and has Ralph Lauren, Louis Vuitton, Cartier, an art gallery, cinema and so much more. You are surrounded by excellent amenities. Speightstown is a bus, taxi or drive away and Bridgetown the same. Just be aware of the traffic in the mornings and afternoons as people are going into work in Bridgetown or leaving after they have finished their jobs. You are within short walking distance of wonderful shops, a supermarket, banks, post office, taxis, pharmacy, 24-hour medical centre, police station, coffee shops with free Internet, beach bars, hair salons and fabulous restaurants. You can choose from exclusive dining to simple beach bars. When you book I will give you a list of websites featuring places of interest, restaurants etc.
    Coast/Beach The beautiful Sandy Lane beach is only 5 minute walk away. You can walk for hours on the beach (depending on the tide). There is also a nice beach just to the left of the beach club where you can walk or swim. To get there is about 3-minutes walk from the apartment. It is very relaxing to walk on the beach to Paynes Bay and back which takes about 2 hours or just sit and watch the sea and listen to the waves. You can also walk or jog at the nine hole golf club (close by) which takes about 2 hours as well depending how fast you walk. Golf A 5-minutes drive takes you to the world famous Sandy Lane golf course and other golf courses are within easy reach. You are within walking distance of the 9-hole Sandy Lane course where you can see the green monkeys. Special Interest Holidays Take your pick of swimming, sailing, snorkeling, golfing, a day at the races, watching polo, horse riding on the beach, tennis, walking, diving or just relax in the tropical sun on the nearby beaches. Tax-free shopping is available in Holetown and there are several golf and polo clubs open to the public on the island.
  • We will choose this again - the location and what you get - is, for what Marita charges in high season - exceptional value for money.

  • A very lovely apartment in a quiet, safe road yet close to amenities, really loved the patio and front outdoor space. Marita was very accommodating and communicative. Would definitively like to stay again.

    Ben2019-12-04T00:00:00Z
  • Marita is an excellent host. Would recommend her to everyone. Attentive and responsive. Thank Marita for the use of your place.

    Angel2019-11-24T00:00:00Z
  • Had the most wonderful time at Marita's place! A lovely apartment, clean, great wi-fi, cute terrace, quiet street, short walk to the beach! Air conditioning was only in the bedroom, if that's important to someone, but we didn't care. Couldn't have asked for a better stay, thank you!

    Hanna2019-11-16T00:00:00Z
  • Had a wonderful two-week vacation at Marita's apartment in Sunset Crest, Holetown, Barbados! Location was just what I was looking for to relax: super close to the Holetown Beach public access and boardwalk, as well as to several other fantastic beaches and snorkelling spots within 20–30 minutes' walk (Paynes Bay, Sandy Lane and Folkestone Marine Park). Complimentary access to the beach club (with chairs, a pool, bathrooms and showers) was very convenient. Nearby there are lots of great restaurants to try out within walking distance, including in the two shopping malls (Limegrove Lifestyle Centre and Cave Shepherd Sunset Crest), movie theatres at Limegrove, a major grocery store, a gourmet ice cream shop (with the biggest scoops ever) and a 24-hour gym! And if you want to get out of Holetown to visit other parts of the island, the bus stops and taxi stands are right there. The pictures and description in the post are accurate; the bed was very comfortable, there were several linens and towels (including beach towels) for my relatively long stay, and the apartment was clean, tidy and practical with all kitchen supplies I needed to prepare the eventual snack or dinner at home. The WiFi Internet connection also worked very well for streaming movies and TV series. I didn't have a chance to meet Marita in person, but she made my self check-in and check-out very easy. She was kind, responsive (via the Airbnb app) and helpful throughout my stay. It was very helpful that she left a folder with a few of her own tips and recommendations, as well as several flyers of Barbados tours, maps, travel guide books on the coffee table. I highly recommend Marita's place and would definitely stay there again!

    Martin2019-10-21T00:00:00Z
  • Definitely a good location close to everything

    Tiffany2019-09-14T00:00:00Z
  • Maritas place is a great little apartment in a fantastic area. Lots of bars, restaurants, shops, the beach and pool within walking distance. Marita was very helpful with whatever we needed.

    Leon & Lucy2019-07-30T00:00:00Z
  • Marita's place was perfect!! A five min drive from Sandy Lane beach, Payne's fish market and lime grove. The place was spotless clear upon arrival and Marita even had the refrigerator stocked with water, milk, yogurts and a few other snacks to hold us down until we were able to make a supermarket trip. She answered my messages with a fast response and allowed early check in and late check out without an additional fee. I definitely would recommend booking Marita's place for whenever you on the island ❤

  • This was a perfect place to stay, clean, comfortable and a brilliant little hideaway. Christine and Bubbles are the perfect hosts and added lots of little touches to make you feel at home and couldn't have been nicer. I would definitely recommend Sunset palms as a place to explore the most beautiful island.

    Chris2019-05-26T00:00:00Z
  • Christine and Bubbles, thank you so much for your amazing hospitality during our 10 nights stay. Many thoughtful touches including being welcomed with a bottle of chilled rum punch, having an English adapters, bug repellent candles in and outside the flat, lovely smelling beach towels and access to the pool. The garden was also amazingly private with an excellent sun trap in which we saw a monkey. The hammock was also a lovely touch and very comfy. The hosts were on hand for any questions we may have had. Would definitely recommend and would love to stay again. Mel and Vicki x

    Melanie2019-04-29T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed here for two weeks in April 2019, The host Christine and her family were really welcoming and always there when we needed anything or just to say Hi. Is great we could use the pool, we spend alot of time in there. Also the place is nice and clean, it has all you need, love the garden ,we spend every breakfast by the garden. Also the location is very quiet but close to everything, beach, shops, pool, restaurants.

    Dahi2019-04-14T00:00:00Z
  • Spacious, clean and safe lovely appartment . Having chilled water in the fridge and coffee with milk on arrival was a lovely gesture and much appreciated. We had a private entrance to the property with beautiful, spacious patio/garden area with sunbeds under the palm trees. We enjoyed having our breakfast outside and a relaxing in the evening. Walking distance to beatiful beach, supermarket and Holetown bars and restaurants. Host showed us around the area and gave us recommendations and tips which was very helpful. We had also access to private swimming pool right by the beach. Great communication with host. Highly recommended. Would have love to stay longer and hope to come back some time in the future. Thank you:)

    Ewa2019-03-27T00:00:00Z
  • We were happy for the stay. The host couple were very friendly and helpful, they made good suggestions for experiences in Barbados.

    Ulrich2019-03-20T00:00:00Z
  • Olivia and I absolutely loved staying at Maisha’s places. Our hosts were extremely acommodating and took the time to show us around town and give us recommendations for restaurants and bars. The back yard and back patio is very private and has a beautiful view with great flowers. They provided a lock to stow our valuables and provided beach towels, shampoo and all the necessities. The kitchen has all the items we needed. The place is located in a quiet neighborhood and is not far for the beach. We would love to stay here soon. Make sure to try the delicious rum punch.

The South Coast is also worth a visit – be sure to go to Oistins Fish Market on a Friday night, accessible in just 45-60 minutes. Guest Access We are based in the UK, but our local representative will meet you on arrival. All will be straightforward.
  • What a great place. We loved it. The rooms were airy, the location was quiet and the pool was just the right temperature - we generally had to ourselves. Everything was near to hand - great restaurants, Masseys supermarket (selling Waitrose products) and some super bars. The facilities were good - the kitchen well equipped for the odd meal in and the air conditioning kept the bedroom at the right temperature (and humidity) through the night. Would we go back? Yes.

    Mike2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely stay here. A 15 minute walk down to the beach. I would thoroughly recommend a car for getting around the island. We decided not to rent one and on the second day realised we really could do with one so managed to get one last minute. Really clean apartment, decent kitchen and a nice living area with tv. No air con in the living area butgood air conditioning in the room. My only tiny recommendation would be a chair or two to have outside the front door just so you can sit outside the apartment :) Thanks for a fab stay. Would definitely recommend over a hotel.

    Lauren2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • This is a great place! Perfect for a couple wanting to be close to the best beaches and restaurants, but with the added benefit of some home comforts and a pool!

    Lucy2020-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • I would like to say what a lovely little jem we found to stay at !! The location was excellent, the cleanliness of our place we had such a lovely stay and would recommend to any one wanting to stay there ...

    Samantha2020-01-09T00:00:00Z
  • Very quiet, very clean , nice amenities and very attentive and welcoming host

    Carlos2019-08-08T00:00:00Z
  • This is a beautiful, clean and comfortable apartment perfect for couples. The docor is fresh and new, with pleanty or towels, well-equipped holiday kitchen and use of washing machine/dryer (useful for longer stays). You're able to walk to the beach, busses and some bars in around 10/15 mins, with the supermarket, many restaurants and shops a little further on - around 20/25 mins . We didn't hire a car and enjoyed walking and using local busses. Being half-way up the west coast, it's a great location to travel around the island from. The area is beautiful. Local beaches are stunning and safe, lined with high-end hotels and private villas with quite parts to be found. The house is in a quiet spot surrounded by a few other upmarket villas. This makes you feel very safe. If you are in a larger group, the adjoining apartment or main house would be perfect to hire at the same time.

    Emily2019-03-21T00:00:00Z
  • Great property other than dangerous road to beach if walking. Maid service twice in a week. Plenty of quality towels. Lovely pool.

  • This place is nice, clean and in a safe residential neighborhood. If you enjoy an early morning (630/7am) or afternoon (430/5pm) walk be sure to pack your gym shoes. Enjoyed a 4/5 mile brisk walk most mornings. It is close to everything in Holetown - bus stop, supermarket, malls, restaurants and some of the nicest beaches in Barbados. You even get free club membership to the beach club where u can enjoy the pool and all other facilities. Stayed here twice and I would stay here again. Great hosts !

  • Perfect place to stay. 5 mins walk to the beach, 3 mins to a big store. Carola´s house is amazing. Big, open, with garden and pool. With cute dog Max and very sympathetic colleague Ron who took us to a local bar where we watched Liverpool games :) What we missed a little bid, was a private, as you have to take in mind that the host is quite always there. Her bedroom is close to your bedroom and the door are always open. So if you are looking for a tropical holiday where you can walk naked in the house :D :D, this is not place for you. Ideal for a communicative people who want to spend a nice time with a host who can always tell you many things about Barbados and help you. Barbados is a lovely place with perfect people. Holetown is a good place as you can find there everything - store, bars, beaches, many buses.

    Kamila2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • Carola's place is such a special place and is everything that she says and a lot more. A beautifully run home in a great location and so many special touches that Carola gives to make your holiday and stay so special. Carola is a credit to Airbnb and truly provides everything in a way that makes you feel happy and cared for. Carola has help from Ron her assistant, who will always help you find what you want and Max her doggy you has a great heart and is lovely to have around.

    Rupert2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • Carola welcomes you very lovingly. Accommodation and garden are very tastefully designed - a small tropical paradise. Sharing the kitchen is no problem at all and Carola helps wherever she can. A little chat in the kitchen can be very informative. The location of the house in Holetown is great. Very quiet, but everything in the city is within walking distance. Different beaches can be reached in between 10 and 25 minutes. The bus stop for other excursions is also nearby. Last but not least, Jack Russell Max puts you in a good mood. All in all to recommend all around.

    Andrea2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay with Carola was wonderful. Your house is a dream and has a small but great pool. There is also free use of the beach club. We had a great stay with Carola and I would book with her every time.

    Maria2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • I will never forget my first trip to Barbados and how extra special it ended up being because of the friends that I made there. Carola made me feel so welcomed and at home in her beautifuly decorated and spacious bungalow. She introduced me to her friends and before I knew it, all the plans that I had made for myself were for naught because I ended up spending the whole three days enjoying their company. I saw things on the island from a truly local perspective. One of the highlights being the fresh Barracuda dinner that Carola bought off a fisherman and then prepared after we we enjoyed a gorgeous afternoon at a local watering hole on the beach. There are so many other great moments to list and my side is still hurting from all the laughter we shared. The house is located perfectly with a shortcut nearby through a beautiful little park that takes you right into the center of Holetown. And I have to say that it was the most comfortable mattress I've ever slept on at an Airbnb. The icing on the cake was how spotlessly clean the house and property are kept. Next time I'm back on the island it will be with my family and we will most definitely be staying with Carola. Highly recommended!

    Jonathan2020-01-29T00:00:00Z
  • Carola's place is beautiful! If you stay in the area of holetown, I strongly recommend to stay at her place. My wife and I decided to stay over New years and Carola spoiled us with cooking for us an outstanding freshly caught Tuna. Also she gave us great tips for the island and out of kindness she even drove us to several spots :). All in all she gave us all the privacy we could ask for and when she was around we had some great talks! Maxi, the dog is adorable :) Always again, thank you Carola!

    Christoph2020-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • Carola’s place is an ideal home and location for hanging out in Barbados. Walking distance to a large modern grocery store ( Masseys), walking distance to restaurants, beach and shopping. Easy to catch a taxi or bus to anywhere. For days you don’t want to explore, hang out in her lush side yard by her pool and play with cute dog, Max. She has an assistant/ friend named Ron who is a local and very nice and helpful. There is no A/C but she gave me a fan and there is also an overhead fan and I was very comfortable sleeping. WiFi was spotty and not available in the bedroom , but worked great by the pool. You will have your own little fridge and full access to the kitchen. Her home is spotless, tidy and super clean. A great stay.

    Lisa2019-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • For German tourists a great hostess. At first we did not know at the time of booking that Carola is a German emigrant who has created her own little paradise in Barbados. Thus, the communication was world class and we have received many tips from Carola and implemented. In addition, we finally managed to eat lobster, which Carola could organize through her contacts. Likewise, Carola's best friend Ron could help us more often. These two are really fun for everyone and we had some fun conversations in the evening. The accommodation is more than fantastic. The images are 100% consistent and we were speechless when we first entered the house of Carola. Her dog Max is super playful. When you relax by the pool and Max joins you or joins you in the pool, he makes you feel at home. On top of that, the location is perfect. A supermarket is about 3min. walk away and the beach is a maximum of 6min. away. You can easily take the bus at the supermarket to discover the west coast. For other destinations, such as the east coast or the "inner" of the island one should resort to a rental car. We could write in this review so much that we liked and impressed, but you should get to know the house, Carola and Max ... You will not regret it! It is the little paradise in paradise! Thank you Carola and Max. :-)

  • Loved Barbados. Lovely people. Climate fabulous. What more could you ask for .... and with Helen as your host ... all ingredients of a wonderful holiday.

    Linda2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • The place was spacious and conveniently located a block from the beach and a few blocks from a grocery store and many restaurants.

    Kevin2019-08-12T00:00:00Z
  • The studio is larger than it looks in the pictures! Helen was super fast to respond. She even checked us in at midnight and was flexible when our flight was very delayed leaving! The studio had the perfect set up for my 3 yr old and me. The kitchen had all the supplies for basic cooking (having oil would’ve been an extra bonus-there was salt, pepper, and sugar). I enjoyed the simplicity of a French press coffee for breakfast. The solar hot water in the kitchen as well as bathroom get very hot very quickly. Lots of bath and beach/pool towels. A wash machine and outside drying line were an added bonus. The studio is on a quiet street but walking distance to the grocery store, pool, beach, and restaurants. It was a fabulous location. A good parking spot out front. Being a studio, the AC cooled the whole place down quickly and wasn’t just in the bedroom. The only thing that would’ve been nice would have been to have some hand soap in the bathroom. There was dish soap in the kitchen.

    Keri2019-05-04T00:00:00Z
  • I stayed at Helen’s studio 8 night with my dad. It is a very clean and spacious studio that has everything that you need. Helen was very reactive when I asked her any question. The studio is very nicely located and everything essential (bus stop, supermarket, beaches) are all nearby.

    Sunmo2019-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • The location is very central, a few minutes walk to the beach, shops and restaurants. The studio apt is spacious and clean. The kitchen is well equipped and the king size bed is very comfy. The a/c worked well. The bathroom is very large with a nice shower and lots of storage space for clothes and linens. The apt is at the rear of the building and looks onto neighbourhood yards. Beautiful birds and monkeys visited us each morning. We made good use of the washing machine and the outdoor clothes rack for drying. Access to the beach club was convenient and nice to have after a dip in the ocean. Helen met us at check in and was available for any questions we had. Very good value. Thanks again

    Cathy2019-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • Helen's Garden Studio is a rare find. Ideal location which is walking distance to a beach, provides use of a pool, steps from shops and restaurants all while giving you secure and comfortable accommodation for excellent value. Helen is always accessible and so lovely to chat with. I enjoyed my stay and hope to be back soon.

    Marsha2017-05-23T00:00:00Z
  • I booked this Helen's place for my friends who came to visit me and I couldn't host them. Helen was very nice and accommodated my friends last minute, which I appreciated. The apartment was super cute and clean, spacious and totally equipped for their needs! The location was awesome, close to the bus and the life of Holetown. They loved staying there, even despite the threat of a tropical storm. I would rent the apartment again, absolutely; I think it is a fantastic value.

  • As described, great communications, Helen even took us to a small market upon our evening arrival (and waited for us to finish shopping). Very quiet location and great wi-fi

  • Very nice place in a great location! Adrian has been extremely helpful before and during our stay. The apartment is great, just a few minutes walk from some lovely beaches and around the corner of Holetown (where you can find supermarkets, restaurants, bars and more). Whilst being located on a main road, it is extremely quiet and it offers lots of parking right in front. I would definitely recommend staying here!

    Gabriele2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • Having been to the island several times, for value and location this place is ideal for solo travellers or couples. Particularly if you don’t want to pay the really high prices for resorts. I will be using this place again when I visit next year!

    Christopher2020-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • Great place, close to beach and amenities. Very clean, Adrian was quick to reply to all questions. Very accommodating. Will definitely come back.

  • Lovely place to stay in Barbados within walking distance of Holetown. Everything you could need in an apartment for a week+ getaway. Lots of tips in the welcome book and great communication with the host. Highly recommended!

    Devon2019-11-04T00:00:00Z
  • Great apartment, just as seen in pics. Worth the money, easy access to all locations, although I had a vehicle buses run frequently. Minutes walk away from beaches in both directions, would definitely recommend and would stay again on return.

    Chemelle2019-10-18T00:00:00Z

  • The villa is wonderfully spacious, air-conditioned and in a great location. The amenities within the villa are great and there was plenty of room for our group of 6. The large verandah is a fantastic place to relax and even eat meals. The area is safe, peaceful and quiet.

    Barbados...just the name conjures a feeling of longing to escape. It is one of the most beautiful islands in the West Indies and it is a country with a rich and fascinating heritage. If you can drag yourself away from the utter relaxation of the sandy beaches, you must discover Barbados for yourself on your Caribbean luxury vacation.
  • Pamela’s accommodation is perfect to enjoy a great holiday in Holetown. The location is central to all amenities I.e public transport, supermarket, restaurants, sea and the Beach Club. The buses are regular and traveling around the island is easy. The local supermarket has everything needed. It is also worth trying the local food. It will is the second time we have stayed and hope to return. The bed is so comfortable and the bed linen and towels are great quality. The kitchen has good facilities. There is always plenty of hot water and there is use of a washing machine. There is an iron, hairdryer and plenty of coat hangers. WiFi and TV are also provided. Air conditioning is available in the bedroom. Pamela has always responded promptly if we had a question. Coffee Italia is across the road and Cafe Moyà is a great place for breakfast or lunch. Holetown offers many places to eat, drink and be happy. We would have no hesitation in recommending a stay there.

    Helen2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay with fantastic location, large comfy bed, quality laundry, well equipped kitchen. All very clean. Payment is needed for the ac using tokens.

    Ilona2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely stay.

    Jewel2019-10-28T00:00:00Z
  • This place is awesome! Nothing fancy but super cozy! You feel right at home. The apartment was really clean, no complaints here. The AC worked well in the bedroom but didn't really make it to the living space. The location was amazing, super close to everything and we felt really safe. We walked home late at night from "1st street", and not once did we feel uneasy. Access to the beach club was great! Overall, we really really enjoyed this space and would definitely return!

    Kathy2019-06-04T00:00:00Z
  • I would like to say that we had some negative feedback about our choice of place to stay from friends and reviews - however we travelled the whole island and the location of Sunset Crest is perfect. It is in Holetown but set back 200 yards away from the centre. It’s right opposite the beach club that you have a membership too. That was lovely, a nice pool area, never crowded and a nice bar and restaurant. It is right on the beach. There are bars and restaurants five minute walk away. We spent happy hour 4-7pm every day in Zaccios! The supermarket is also five minute walk away. You do not need a car. The yellow buses pick you up from anywhere along the road and it costs 2 Bajan Dollars a ride. We walked along the beach for miles, good way of keeping cool! There is a taxi rank offering island tours or just use the bus. The apartment is clean, basic and simple. We had maid service once a week- she left it spotless with fresh towels, (both swimming and bathroom), and fresh bedding. The apartment is warm in the living area, but if you leave the bedroom window open and front door, you do get a through breeze. There’s air conditioning in the bedroom which we put on in the evening when we were getting ready to go out and then again for an hour before we went to bed. The four tokens lasted two weeks. There’s plenty of hot water and the bed also was comfortable. I thoroughly recommend this place to anyone- we are five star hotel people normally and this wasn’t five star but it was perfect for our stay in Barbados. Thankyou to Pamela and your team for looking after us so well and for a fabulous time in Barbados.

    Mel2019-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • Everything was lovely and just as described. Clean place, lovely location and access to the club house is a huge bonus. Super close to a huge supermarket, as well as a 24 hour petrol station so you can always get something. Would recommend.

    Salma2019-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • Have just spent 5 weeks Pamela’s place in Holetown. The accommodation is perfectly situated. It is a 5 minute walk from the beach and pool. A 10 minute walk to a very well stocked supermarket. The bus stop is 1 minute away and the buses are plentiful. The bed is incredibly comfortable. The bed linen and towels are good quality. It has constant hot water. We found having a washing machine useful for the length of stay. Communication was excellent. We were met at the accommodation and shown how to use TV, WiFi . We were shown where the supermarket is.we had a cleaning service weekly with linen change. Would thoroughly recommend staying here.

    Helen2018-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • My boyfriend and I had a great week-long stay at Pamela's place over NYE. Claudia was very responsive in answering any questions we had beforehand and during our stay. Upon arrival their housekeeper Julie was available at check-in and was always close by to handle any requests. The apartment itself is in a perfect location, right across from a coffee shop and within walking distance to beautiful beaches, a big supermarket, west coast restauraunts, etc. However I would recommend renting a car to enjoy Barbados and there's a free parking spot right in front of the apt. The bed, linens, towels and furnishings provided are to a high standard. Keep in mind that there's only air con in the bedroom and it's run by tokens, so bring cash upon arrival to purchase them. This does make the living area slightly warm, but it didn't bother us once our bodies got used to tropical temperatures :) We had a great time cooking breakfast in the small but functional kitchen and eating on the terrace. Access to the beach club/pool was very convenient, even if just to shower off the sand when heading in from the beach. All in all, a great value and comfortable stay in one of the most fabulous locations on Barbados!
