This property is in an idyllic location.

  • 4 of 5
Once we'd decided to holiday in Barbados, we browsed the web to find an ideal but affordable place to stay. After lots of research we plumped for Maxwell Beach Apartments. We stayed from 21st August to 4th September 2014. Our first week was spent in the upstairs apartment. The room was clean, very basic but provided a good base to tour the island .We hired a car although public transport is frequent and very cheap.

The second week we moved to the seafront apartment. The view from the balcony is amazing and the rooms are lovely. Although we intended to dine out quite a bit in the second week, we spent most evenings on the balcony. We wouldn't have exchanged that view for best restaurant on the island! There we would eat our own cooked food or take-outs from "Just Grillin " which sells tasty , reasonably priced Bajan food. We also drank lots of wine and Banks lager whilst listening to the waves of the Caribbean Sea and some old skool reggae . We couldn't think of anywhere in the world we'd rather have been !!

The Apartments are but a stones throw from a lovely , small ,sandy beach, which although not private, was very rarely occupied by more than 2 or 3 couples at a time. The sea is blue, warm, clear and clean. We spent hours swimming and bobbing about in the water and sunbathing on the sun loungers provided.

Peter is an excellent host and gave us a very useful induction into what to see and where to go as well as booking taxis to and from the airport and arranging car hire for us.

I guess our only concern was the attitude of the locals. Despite everything you might read about their friendliness, they are quite sullen, avoid eye contact and are generally unhelpful. If you don't believe me just go shopping in the local Massey supermarket. However there are exceptions to the rule and if you make lots of effort, sometimes a friendly Bajan might just cross your path!

All in all a fantastic holiday in a fantastic location and hopefully we'll return very soon.

PS The seafront apartment is not to be missed and well worth the extra expense

Owner's Response: Hello Stephen,
We are grateful for your comprehensive and informative review and pleased you enjoyed your holiday with us.
It was disappointing to read your experience with the locals, I think you were unlucky and perhaps supermarket shopping is perhaps not the most joyful of occasions for any of us. I guess we all have bad days, but I can truly say, for the most part, I have found the Bajans very welcoming.
We hope you will be able to visit us again,
With thanks and all good wishes,
Martin, Peter and Sheena

Best holiday ever!

  • 5 of 5
We have recently returned home from two wonderful weeks at Maxwell Beach Apartments, in fact our trip was so great we have already booked to return next year!
We spent the first 6 days in the ground floor apartment which was simply furnished, comfortable and extremely clean. The average temperature while we were there was about 28C with high humidity so we were very happy to have AC each night which ensured the room was cool enough to sleep. We had been advised by our travel Doctor in Vancouver not to drink the water in Barbados but after checking with Peter we decided not to worry, and drank water from the tap from day one with absolutely no problems.
We used the apartment kitchen and had several excellent meals at the local Surfers Café in Oistins, about a 10 minute walk away. We tried the margaritas at Café Sol in St Lawrence Gap but the best by far were at our local Surfers Café. Across the street from the café is a large grocery store that more than catered to whatever we might need for simple meals at home. The grocery store also sells alcohol and had a great selection of imported wines at reasonable prices as well as a wide variety of Barbados Rum.
For the last 7 nights of our holiday, we moved upstairs to the totally gorgeous sea front apartment with its breathtaking view of the ocean. We spent hours each day sitting on the porch reading, sipping drinks and watching sea turtles dip their heads in and out of the ocean, almost close enough to touch.
If you want a real authentic Bajan restaurant experience be sure to go to Brown Sugar. We had a fabulous and very reasonably priced meal there. I had some of the best crusted snapper I’ve ever tasted, the portions were huge and the service was friendly and attentive.
Aside from the breathtaking scenery and the pure joy of being on a Caribbean holiday, meeting Peter and Sheena was the highlight of our trip. They are truly excellent hosts who take pride in their apartments and take great care of their guests. They are unobtrusive yet friendly and were readily available to provide recommendations for great places to eat, hiring rental vehicles and attractions to visit on the island.
My husband and I have been lucky enough to travel a fair amount and what means the most to us wherever we go is the opportunity to meet decent kind hearted people. We loved our time at Maxwell Beach apartments and can’t wait to see Peter and Sheena again in 11 months!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your comprehensive, informative and glowing review. We are all delighted that you enjoyed your holiday and very grateful for taking the time to write and tell us.
Thank you for mentioning the "water" in Barbados, as you say it is absolutely safe to drink. This is a question I'm often asked so its good to get another opinion.
We are very, very pleased that you are returning next year.
With grateful thanks from us all,
Martin, Peter and Sheena

Vi ankom til Maxwell Beach Apartments d. 1-1-2013, et fantastisk skøn sted, hvor man virkelig kan slappe af. En rigtig god lejlighed, med 2 dejlige soverum og store behagelige senge, 2 lækre badeværelser, dejlig køkken og stor opholdsrum med alle faciliteter. Vi tilbragte nu meget af vores tid, på den utrolige dejlige store terrasse, med udsigt til det flotte hav som hele tiden skiftede farve, sidde ude og nyde det skønne vejr, kolibrien samt de andre fugle som er der. om aftenen var det træ frøen og crabben som gravede i sandet der kom frem. Vi har nydt vores 16 dage lange ferie, i skønne omgivelser, en dejlig lejlighed og nogle helt fantastiske mennesker. En speciel stor tak til Peter og Sheena, for deres store hjælp da jeg blev syg og skulle til læge. GODT KØRT Sheena :-). Lejligheden ligger dejlig med egen strand, hvor sandet er så fint at det kan bruges til body scrub, ligge og nyde solen i fred og ro. Vi nød også at kunne gå til indkøbs centret, torvet hvor vi købte frisk frugt-grønt og fisk, Oistens og alle de andre restauranter som er der. Der er også gode bus forbindelser lige uden for lejligheden, hvorfra man kan komme til Bridgetown, eller den nordlige spids for 2 BBD. dollars. Vi kan kun varmt anbefale stedet, en ren paradis. VI NØD HVERT ENESTE DAG.

Sorry to leave February 2013

  • 5 of 5
We are a well-traveled couple in our early 60's and this is our third trip to Barbados. Our preference has always been for small properties and this one we fell in love with online and were not disappointed in any way once we got to it. We were travelling with good friends and the 2 bedroom apartment was ideal for 2 couples. Each spacious bedroom has its own en-suite bath. The bedroom air conditioner ran quietly and cooled very nicely at night and we only set it at 26 or 27. During the day, the ceiling fans and breeze through all the open windows kept it very pleasant. The open beam ceilings make the apartment seem even larger and it's already is an excellent size. The apartment is well-furnished and very clean and we felt comfortable from the moment we stepped in the door. The kitchen has all the basic tools required if you have a desire to cook or even if all you want to do is coffee and breakfast. We loved eating and imbibing outside on the balcony. Excellent BBQ available. Beach access is beyond great ... just down the steps and through the gate and you're in an amazing sandy ocean, with a warm shower to rinse off , just inside the gate.

On-site hosts Sheena and Peter were gracious and very accommodating and at all times made us feel welcome. Airport pick-up and drop off, as well as a rental car were arranged by them. Their freely given helpful local advice made for a much better holiday.
No traffic noise, even though on the main road. Easy to catch any type of bus you want or even flag down a taxi, from just in front of the apartment. Easy walk to Oistens for groceries at the Supercentre. Surfer’s Cafe just across the street from the Supercentre has really great coffee and the best shrimp wrap ever. We had wonderful marlin fish fillets from the fish market in Oistens, that we brought back and BBQ’d . Mini-mart just a 1/2 block the other way is handy too.

We found the accommodation to be excellent price value for our money. When our travels take us back to Barbados, we will definitely choose to stay there again (if we can get a booking .... we really didn't want to tell anyone about this lovely place, but didn't seem fair to keep it a secret). Martin ... thanks for all your help during the booking process.

Bajan Canadians

  • 5 of 5
My family and I stayed at the upper level 2 bedroom Maxwell beach apartments and were blown away by the amenities this apartment has to offer.It included hammocks and enough lounge chairs for everyone, It is so clean and spacious and I have recommended this to multiple friends at work already and will continue to suggest this fabulous place to others.( I would really like to keep it a family secret and have this place as ours).
My family has been fortunate enough over the past 25 years to make Barbados our favorite Caribbean island to visit for our vacations and we have stayed at numerous all inclusives during these visits but not one of them even comes close to the experience that Peter and Sheena provide during your stay at the Maxwell Beach Apartments.
The view from the balcony of the second level in this apartment cannot be described other than MAGICAL and must be experienced at least once in everyone's lifetime, The sounds of the waves from your bedroom window gently rocking you to sleep at night are amazing and also very romantic.
The beach with its powder white sand is literally a shells throw away and is warm and inviting at any time of the day, It is also great for an early morning run on the beach as we did almost every day of our holiday.
Peter and Sheena joined my family one evening with another couple from the UK for a feast of fresh tuna - chicken - Banks and of course Sheena's famous macaroni pie!
We will definitely be back.
Regards your Bajan Buddies,
Andrew,Victoria,George and Justin.
