Excellent accomodation in a Superb location

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I and our 3 boys (7, 3 and 1) stayed at Apartment 102 (ground floor) for 3 weeks in July 2009 and we all thoroughly enjoyed our time there and can't wait to go back. Albert and the staff were extremely polite and always keen to assist with any query or problem that arose. The apartment was spacious and clean with all the modern conveniences needed to make our holiday go smoothly including washing machine/dryer and a large LCD TV and DVD player. It is located on a great stretch of beach which was safe for all the kids and had a terrific swimming pool which was also loved by the boys. Oistins is just 5 minutes by car (recommended) or a 15 minute stroll and has a large supermarket as well as other useful shops. In the evening we were able to take a short walk (or a very short drive) to local bars and restaurants (especially Charlie's Bar on Maxwell Main Road, which for us is the best kept secret on the Island!!) We have been coming to Barbados every year for the last 12 years and can honestly say that this was one of the most relaxing time we have had yet (as relaxing as it can be with 3 boys!!).

Loud Karaoke Bar Kept Our Children Awake

  • 1 of 5

I visited Maxwell Beach Villas with my wife and two children during the week between Christmas and New Years (12/26/11 through 1/2/12 inclusive). An otherwise reasonable stay was badly marred by the bar across the street from the building which -- at the time of our stay -- featured Karaoke. The bedroom occupied by my two children (both under 10 years of age) directly faced this bar. During the nights of the 26th, 30th, and literally ALL NIGHT during the 31st (New Year's Eve) we were kept awake for many hours by the caterwalling emanating from this bar at extremely high volume. In our experience the condo's single pane wood frame windows did very very little to dampen the noise. We have visited Barbados multiple times in the past without undue noise issues. We would NEVER have stayed at Maxwell Beach Villas had we known of the sound issues with the bar, and would never consider staying there again. We also experienced problems with a dishwasher which was broken when we arrived and not fixed until day 5 of our 7 day stay, as well is pervasive issues with the WiFi (even once "fixed"). Hot water for our showers was often in short supply. Lastly, the parking lot is extremely small with very narrow access routes and was extraordinarily difficult to navigate.

Positives included the security guard Cesar, who has a wonderful attitude and was always cheerful and anxious to help. The beach in front of the building is quite nice and our children enjoyed body surfing in the gentle waves. The pool area is well kept and the vegetation has grown in nicely (much more richly developed than in the pictures on the www.homeaway.com website). The pool itself is small and only 4 feet deep across its entire span. Our last afternoon we had to leave the pool because someone decided to light a charcoal BBQ in the easement to the east of the property which blew acrid smoke across the pool area for some time. As with the bar, we were told by security that since the grill was in the easement rather than on the property, there was nothing they could do to address the issue.

Owner's Response: We wanted to note some facts to consider given that the above is unique and the only noise complaint that we are aware of at Maxwell Beach since opening 4 yrs ago. We are happy to say we have accommodated hundreds of visitors happily and comfortably. Maxwell Beach is a collection of privately owned apartments and not a hotel, therefore there are no on-site maintenance personnel. Independent contractors must be called in the event of an equipment breakdown. Unfortunately, during that celebratory/holiday time of the year when we have numerous public holidays, it is more difficult to get immediate attention from service contractors and regrettably so as we appreciate the urgency of such concerns. The guest complained about someone next door on the beach doing BBQ and wondered why we couldn't stop them. That is not the Caribbean way. We take advantage of the wonderful weather and BBQ on the beach and we love music especially during public holidays of which we have many. No matter where you holiday it is expected taht there will be some additonal noise for the New Years Eve bash. We regret that their stay was not what as anticipated but remain confident that future guests will continue to enjoy excellent, personalized service from our staff and those at Maxwell Beach Villas.

So nice we stayed longer

  • 5 of 5

Myself, my husband and 2 teenage boys (19 and 14), had come to Barbados for my neice's wedding. We stayed in apartment 104 on the 2nd floor and it was just perfect. The apartment was lovely, the view was stunning. The gardens are more established than the in the photos but provides some welcome shade.Family staying in nearby hotels agreed that our apartment was definitely a winner. Renae, the property manager was very helpful and a very nice lady. The local supermarket was well stocked and the nearby Surfer's Cafe proved a winner for breakfast with a view.We ate out at Pisces ,in The Gap, very nice,spent the day at The Boatyard near Bridgetown(entrance is charged for use of the facilities - sunbeds etc- but is deducted from your meal bill,couple of nights out at The Ship Inn,in The Gap, dancing if you don't mind it hot, an island tour for the Hen day,just the girls and some rum punch, and of course the wedding was at Wispers On The Bay which was beautiful. Fish Fri in nearby Oistins (music and food stalls) gets quite busy but is not to be missed.We visited Harrison Caves but thought it was a bit expensive (80 bajan dollars each) for a short tour. We chose to use the local taxis although prices did vary even for short distances.The apartment provides a good base,relax by the pool or beach, or to explore the island and activities.We all had such a nice time that we decided to stay a few days more (restricted by half-term dates).

Much more than I had expected!!

  • 5 of 5

Breathtaking views, great ammenities and beautiful decor are just some of the good qualities about this apartment building. I stayed there from May 6th thru the 10th to follow the cricket world cup and it was the perfect little spot.

The owner provided me with accurate details about the apartment and was extremely helpful in providing us with local information. I also have to give credit to the building manager as she also helped us a lot in getting to know the locality. The building is very safe as it has an electronic locking system and 24 hour security and is only a short ride away from the bars at St. Lawrence Gap. The hotel right next door provides great breakfast and the bus stop outside the building is perfect to get into bridgetown or to st. lawrence gap. The building has a swimming pool area facing the sea which is an awesome place to relax after a hectic day.

I highly recommend this apartment building and I know I will not look to stay anywhere else when I go back to Barbados.

Couldn't Be Happier

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in apartment 303 exceeded our expectations. The view from the balcony was fabulous. The pictures and listing description were accurate. The apartment was very clean and well-maintained and had all the furnishings one would expect for a condo. The on-site staff was courteous and helpful. The pool and grounds were well kept. The location was convient, near the tourist areas, but far enough away to feel out of the hustle and bustle.

Check out Champers for a nice dinner on the ocean. Plenty of beaches nearby, check out Rockley/Accra beach or Maxwell beach. A trip to Bathsheba is worth it for a scenic drive into a more lush part of Barbados. The Butterfly Resort next door has a nice bar on the ocean with great happy hour specials. The bartender across the street was extremely friendly and knowledgeable about things to see and do in Barbados. Our only regret was missing the OIstins Friday fish fry.

We would highly recommend this apartment for anyone who wants great accommodations on the ocean, convenient location, and all the amenities of a condo. We're definitely coming back!

Great value, great location - want to come back!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in unit 302 for 7 days, and it wasn't nearly long enough.

The apartment is exactly as described and pictured, except it is ON the ocean, not NEAR the ocean. It had all the amenities - washer, dryer, flat screen tvs in living and master bedroom, large soaking tub in the master bath, and all modern appliances. The kitchen was well stocked right down to a garlic press. Access to a grill would have been great, but we survived without it. You could easily prepare all of your meals here, but missing the great restaurants around the island would be a terrible shame. They even provide a large and a small coolers for packing picnic lunches to tote along while you sightsee.

The apartment was spotless, and housekeeping came Mon, Wed, Fri for cleaning, washing linens, etc. The staff was excellent! Renae couldn't have been more helpful, housekeeping and security were friendly and pleasant as well. Albert went out of his way to accomodate all of our requests. The grounds were nicely landscaped, and equally immaculate. The picture of the pool must be older, there are now hedges along the fence. Great for privacy, bad as they block that beautiful ocean view.

The location was fantastic - 5 minutes to St Lawrence Gap - GREAT restaurants and bars. 5 minutes in the opposite direction to Oistins with an IGA grocery (best selection that we found) and the Friday night fish fry (highly recommended). The pool was wonderful, but the small beach in front was even better. The waves were just the right size for some lazy boogie boarding, but not intimidating to get in and out of. It was very quiet, with few other people on the beach. We went to beaches on the east, and west coast and others on the south coast, and loved Maxwell the best.

The hotel right next door had happy hour specials with 2 for 1 drinks daily from 12 - 1 and 5 - 6. I would emphatically recommend a car, but it was nice to have one place to go that didn't require one.

I would highly recommend this property to anyone who likes a self-

catering vacation. It truly doesn't get any better than this.
