Lovely relaxing stay :)

  • 5 of 5
The apartment was exactly what we expected, if not more. I went with my mum (who was born in Barbados but only returned for the first time on this holiday - 46 years later) and baby niece so there was plenty of room. We bought a pop-up travel cot for my niece which was a space-saver instead of taking up valuable luggage weight for a travel cot. We got picked up from the airport, which was one less thing to worry about, especially after travelling with a baby, so it was a pleasant and appreciated touch to the start of the holiday.
There was a mobile phone for our use (which was invaluable for my mum to keep in touch with family members back home), along with other leaflets and a booklet with info that we needed to know about the apartment.
The apartment itself was very clean with lots of utensils and a fridge which made buying only the essentials possible. The sitting room was spacious enough for all of us, and the garden a great extension for relaxation.
Alexis and Julie answered any questions I had, and there was only one minor problem with the toilet, but it got sorted swiftly with no fuss.
It is a bit of a walk to the beach and supermarket, but if you need a bit of exercise (which I welcomed from my usual desk job), then it's a fairly simple walk (with a hill thrown in for good measure).
All in all, I couldn't recommend this apartment enough, and my mum would happily stay here again.
Great job/place Alexis (and Julie)!

small and perfectly formed!

  • 5 of 5
Decided to come to Barbados as a change of winter destination - didn't know whether to book a hotel or apartment.....definitely made the right decision! After a few teething troubles at the airport trying to get a taxi who knew where the apartment was we were pleasantly surprised at our warm welcome from Alexis and how lovely the apartment was. The 10 days we spent here were relaxing with all home comforts. I would recommend hiring a car to explore the island and its beautiful beaches. We had a great day out on 'Elegance' catamaran swimming with the turtles and the food was amazing. Friday nights in Oistins are Fish Fry night - good food and good music.
I have no hesitation in recommending the apartments and will definitely visit again :o)

Our home away from home this January

  • 5 of 5
We had the pleasure of spending the whole of january with Michael and Julie and I can honestly say that our stay couldn't have been better. I was met at the airport by Michael who was also kind enough to stop while I got some basic provisions for the weekend. The place itself was impeccably presented and was cleaned and maintained by Judy who visits one day a week. It comprises lounge/kitchen, entrance hall, patio, bedroom and toilet/shower room, with air conditioning in the bedroom. It's about the size of a small one bed apartment. The patio doubles as a dining area. It overlooks Julie's beautiful garden and leads straight out to the pool with beds and chairs. Past the pool is the back fence with views out to the golf course. It really is a lovely spot. Julie and Michael are resident at the property full time and the property is managed by their daughter Alexis whose number is in the courtesy mobile phone. The property itself is in a very quiet cul de sac off a very quiet road in Durants. Unless you just want to sit around the pool, I WOULD recommend a hire car. Enterprise/Miami beach is a walk away but it's up and down a long hill. The supermarket is also here and is the closest place for food shopping.

Can't wait to return and catch up with our new found friends.

A little piece of paradise!!

  • 5 of 5
This is a wonderful place to relax and enjoy the island of Barbados. Our hosts Julie, Mike, Alexis and Pete were so warm and welcoming. Almond Cottage was clean and comfortable and we quickly felt at home. Alexis arranged a car rental which was delivered to the house. The location was excellent and close to Oistens Fish market and our favorite beach, Enterprise beach!! We really enjoyed our stay and were sad to leave as we were heading back to the bone chilling cold winter of Canada. I miss the sound/serenade of the frogs at night and the wonderful scent of the frangipani tree at night. And the WIFI enabled me to keep up with the CIS football semi-finals, sorry about all the noise on Saturday, Julie and Mike. My nephew's team went on to win the Vanier Cup and I watched from VIP seats covered in SNOW on November 23 in Quebec City. There was really nothing to complain about and I plan to come back in early 2015, possibly for a month or two at your Paradise Lodge property. Happy New Year 2014. I hope to see you soon. Take care, be warm cos we are freezing at - 35-40C here right now!!

The perfect retreat.

  • 5 of 5
And what a beautiful retreat this was. My husband and I stayed at this accommodation for two weeks. It is set in the most beautiful gardens and is totally secluded, and although Michael and Julie are only next door, the are totally unobtrusive, but there if you need them.

The apartment was well equiped with everything you could possibly need, right down to washing up liquid, tea towels, big mugs for your coffee/tea etc., beach towels, beach chairs, you name it, it was catered for. You are also given a mobile phone to take on your days out which is useful should you get lost. You really do not need to take anything, as this was all provided for you. Loved the Smeg oven and the power shower.

My main concern when booking a holiday is my sleep, I need total or near as peace and silence, and boy I got this at the apartment.

The apartment is done to a high standard. We loved the privacy, especially the private decking area, where we ate most nights with the garden being lit up with candles, over looking the pool.

The apartment is approx: 25 minutes walk into Oistins down a steep hill, the nearest beach being the beautiful Miami beach, if you do not wish to walk back, you can either get the shuttle bus from the supermarket, although this is a bit hit & miss, we either missed it, or they wait untill it's full!
Or you can catch a bus, the station is next to Oistins fish market/ Miami beach. The buses go up to the top of the steep hill, then it's aprox: ten minute walk to the apartment. The bus you need to catch is either the Savanha/college or the ABC Highway (blue buses)

Recommend Oistin's fish night on a Friday superb atmosphere. Although we hired a car, it was for only four day's as we love to use the local buses to explore the Island, especially the Reggae Reggae buses, what a wonderful experience.

So, if you want a totally relaxing quiet holiday, or you want to party, this is the place for you.

We had a totally relaxing holiday, so much so that we have booked to do it all over again for October this year :)
