Rockley Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Self-catering huge 1 bedroom apartment located just steps to Accra Beach!!!

Set on the beautifully landscaped grounds of a traditional old Bajan family home, this newly renovated self contained apartment is extremely spacious and securely gated with a lovely breezy private patio and features lush tropical gardens. Literally under 5 minutes walk down to the gorgeous Accra (Rockley) beach, numerous shops, restaurants, pubs, nightlife and the popular Quayside Mall. The cottage interior is tastefully furnished including master bedroom with large queen bed, whisper quiet split system air conditioning and ceiling fan, en-suite bathroom, wireless internet, fully outfitted full-size kitchen, Flat screen 39' colour TV with comprehensive cable package, stereo with iPod dock, telephone, private parking and twice weekly maid service. A detailed information package is also provided in the apartment to help you enjoy your holiday to the fullest. This property has all the conveniences of home along with your personal concierge and comes with pretty much everything you will need for a great holiday break at Newstead Cottage in beautiful Barbados!!!

Island Activities: There are numerous activities you can enjoy in Barbados! Go on the Atlantis Submarine and enjoy unforgettable views of schools of brightly-coloured fish and tropical coral reefs. Or see Barbados from a different perspective with an off-road safari adventure in an open-back Jeep. It's an exhilarating ride through parts of the island you'll never see on a regular island tour.

You will love swimming with the gorgeous sea turtles and snorkelling while enjoying a fabulous Cool Runnings catamaran cruise. Lunch, drinks and transfers are included so all you'll need to pack is a towel, your camera and the sunscreen.

The Barbados Wildlife Reserve is located in the beautiful Scotland District in the north of the island, so even the journey to get there is fun. See the Barbados Green Monkey roaming through the mahogany trees, along with iguanas, turtles, deer and birds. You can visit the snake house & the aviary and hike to the historic Grenade Hall Signal Station.

more Activities: World-renowned Harrison's Cave is not to be missed. It has undergone recent renovation, with the addition of a world-class display centre and three glass-fronted elevators to take you 80 feet down from the cliff top to the cave entrance. You'll never see anything else like this natural wonder—a network of beautifully-lit natural limestone caves with cascading waterfalls and cool streams. Take a guided tram ride between majestic stalactites and stalagmites with photo stops along the way.

For the history buff there is the Barbados Museum, located in the historic Garrison area, showcases Barbadian history from Amerindian settlements to the present day. Just a short distance away is George Washington House, the only location where this former U.S. president stayed outside of North America.

Nature lovers can visit Flower Forest and Orchid World, with their breath-taking displays of tropical blooms and foliage.

For the more adventurous, visit the Aerial Trek Zipline Experience!

Your own piece of paradise in Barbados!

  • 5 of 5

This is our 2nd visit to this idyllic spot in Barbados. As we found last year, the accommodation is everything as described.If you are thinking about visiting Barbados, we guarantee you will not be disappointed with this accommodation. Added to this, the charming hosts, make you feel very welcome, as do the people of Barbados, wherever you go. You are minutes from all amenities, but at the same time in a peaceful location. We travelled all over on the local transport, which is excellent value and good fun! Fabulous beaches and crystal waters, what more could you want. As you can tell, this holiday rental comes highly recommended!

A perfect home away from home for our wedding!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the Newstead Cottage!!!

Thank you for a wonderful home away from home for our wedding and honeymoon.

Upon arrival we were greeting by Claire, with a smile and a very warm welcome to the island and cottage. We were immediately pleased with our decision to stay at the Newstead Cottage. A beautifully located cottage, with all the amenities that anyone could need!!

The outdoor patio and breakfast nook where our favourite place to sit and have breakfast, and read while unwinding from a day at the beach. We were often greeted by a few of the loving cats on the property, along with the birds and hummingbirds. The gardens also made a lovely view while eating breakfast! The cottage has an open concept living room and kitchen, with two couches and a flat screen t.v. which was always nice to have while having a drink after dinner or just wanting a lazy morning out of the sun. Having the A/C in the bedroom was wonderful, my husband slept very well every night!! There is plenty of space for several weeks worth of clothing and belongings, and the safe to store all your valuables which we made good use of for our wedding bands, passports etc. The security of the cottage was more than ample, and we felt safe each and every day especially with the alert/guard dog that lives in the main house on the property. We felt very at ease very quickly, and the Newstead Cottage felt like home with in the first couple of days.

Having never been to Barbados, we were so excited to be in such a beautiful location and close to everything we could need. Supermarkets, restaurants, cafes, a pharmacy and the best part only a few minutes down the road is one of the most beautiful beaches on the island - Accra Beach.

We got married only a stones throw away from the cottage at Sandy Beach, which made our stay at the cottage that much more special. being able to share our special moments in such a beautiful home made our wedding day and honeymoon perfect.

Susan & Claire went above and beyond to make our stay wonderful. Arranging to have groceries when we arrived on bank holiday, having a car service take us where we needed to go, recommending Cool Runnings for a catamaran tour and giving my husband and I several recommendations on places to eat, visit and explore.

Jason and I are beyond thrilled with our stay, and plan to come back for our 5 year wedding anniversary or sooner if possible!!!

Thank you!!

Lovely Apartment in a great location

My wife and i spent 13 nights at Newstead Cottage in October 2013.

We had been to Barbados 3 times before so we knew exactly the area we wanted to stay and Newstead Cottage seemed to meet our requirements.

The booking process was simple and the owner returned emails usually same day but always within 24hrs.

Claire the housekeeper was there at the cottage to meet us and let us in despite the flight being delayed by 1 hour.

Newstead Cottage is very well laid out, tidy and clean, serviced twice a week by Claire who was very helpful.

It is literally a 5 minute walk to Accra beach and the main south coast road where there are a good selection of eating places and shops.

We had a great stay and would reccommend Newstead Cottage to anybody looking for a good well priced place to stay on the south coast.

Newstead Cottage - perfection in paradise

  • 5 of 5

Newstead Cottage is the most perfect holiday rental in Barbados. We were greeted by Claire who proudly showed us around the cottage then offered suggestions of places to visit, restaurants to try and the local grocery shops. The cottage had everything we needed for our two week holiday. Exceptionally clean, very comfortable queen size bed, air conditioning if you need it (but we used the ceiling fan) wi-fi that let us gleefully send photos and emails back to family; and just a short walk to Accra Beach, one of the island's top beaches. Shakers, just around the corner, for the best char-grilled ribs; minutes away is Just Grillin' for flying fish; The Ackee Tree for the roti, and the Tiki Bar for fabulous rum punches and burgers. We had breakfast on the terrace every morning and were delighted to watch the hummingbirds come to the flowers that grew in the cottage's front yard. We hired a car for three days to tour the island, we rode in the amazing ZR vans that help out with the public buses. Anywhere for 2 BD dollars. Being a photographer, I loved the fact I could go about with my equipment and feel very safe. The people were so helpful and it made our time there an unforgettable vacation. We visited St-Nicholas Abbey, Harrison's Cave, collected sea glass at Martin's Bay on the east coast, stopped at little communities across the island, shopped at the local grocery store that offers free shuttle service back to the cottage (as we cooked up culinary delights in the fully equipped kitchen) and thoroughly enjoyed the Oistin's Fish Fry. We walked along many beaches and found amazing rock formations (the birth of the island) along Barclay's Park on the east coast. To see the hills created by the Caribbean and Atlantic plates was humbling to my long ago studies in geology. We simply immersed ourselves in the Bajan culture. We will definitely return to Barbados for future holidays and take up residence again at Newstead Cottage.

Owner's Response: Hi Karen & Dave - I am so happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Newstead Cottage and that you took advantage of the fact that there are so many fabulous restaurants within walking distance. Our favourite beach has always been Accra (a.k.a. Rockley) and I'm glad that you both agree -- it really is one of the loveliest beaches on the island and because it is within a few minutes walking distance makes Newstead Cottage the perfect location -- having the Tiki Bar there now is a real bonus! :) We look forward to your return to Barbados... Until then, best wishes to you both, Susan

Newstead Cottage, Rockley, Barbados

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I arrived at Newstead in the evening and were welcomed by Claire our Housekeeper.Claire made it feel like home and gave us lots of useful information about the Cottage and the local area,shops,restaurants, beaches etc.

The Cottage was very clean and comfortable and we felt relaxed straight away.The facilities were everything you need and I had even taken my laptop to send photos home and make all our friends jealous!.

Once we had familiarised ourseves with the area we settled into a routine of one day on the beach the next day exploring the Island.The nearest beach 'Accra' is superb and only five minutes walk from the Cottage.We ony used the local tansport (bus) for getting around the Island.The buses are not only good fun and give you a chance to mix with the locals but they are cheap at two Bajan dollars for any journey is great!.All buses pass down the main road just a short walk from the Cottage.

Because the Cottage has an excellent kitchen we 'ate in' some nights.This not only helps with the budget but also provides a very relaxed evening especially after a tiring day touring Barbados.We tried several restaurants all within walking distance and all were recommended by either Claire or a friend who stays in Rockley often.We were very impessed with all the restaurants which varied in price.The nearest, Shakers, is excellent, very reasonably priced and just two minutes walk.Others we tried were Neru, Tappas and if you want to finish the holiday in style Champers is a little more expensive but a great location on the seafront.

We really enjoyed the holiday and plan to return next year.I would not hesitate to recommend Newstead Cottage to anyone planning to visit Barbados.We also found Susan the owner very helpful when booking and she has since been in touch with an update of any improvements being carried out at the Cottage.

This was the first time that we had stayed at Newstead Cottage but our 4th time in Barbados. For location, comfort etc I can say that this is the place to be. Nothing was too much trouble for Claire, the cottage is exactly as advertised. If we can get booked again then we will definitely be back here.
