COOL AND SPACIOUS STUDIO APARTMENT

Gibbs Bay Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Sleeps 2 in studio apartment

Constant tropical breezes make this spacious & cozy studio apartment a comfortable place to stay. The sleeping area is spacious & the 'queen' size bed is comfortable, the room well lit for reading in bed if desired and there is a full en-suite bathroom. The place is well maintained and cleaned twice weekly & is set in nicely landscaped completely fenced grounds and a short stroll to 2 of the best beaches on the island - Gibbs and Mullins. Gibbs is quiet and great for just relaxing while Mullins has a restaurant/beach bar and lots of activity. The location is one of the safest in the island and although close proximity to the main road, the property is set far enough back that one does not hear the traffic noise. Shopping is close by in Speightstown (approx 1 mile) and Holetown (approx 4 miles) Speightstown has a variety of shops, cafes/restaurants and a large supermarket and Holetown has several malls, great restaurants, a large supermarket and a 24/7 emergency clinic.

Suitability:
  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • non smoking only
  • not suitable for children
  • pets not allowed

About Barbara Anne Rodriguez

I grew up on this property......my father built his house (next door) in 1956 and I actually built my property directly behind his in 2006 and have lived here since then. In the 58 years that my family have lived on this property we have never had an issue with security as it is one of the safest places on the island. I went to school to a private boarding school here in Barbados and then studied In Montreal, Canada. In between travels i have always lived in Barbados and know the island very well.

Barbara Anne Rodriguez purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Barbara Anne Rodriguez chose Gibbs Bay

It was an automatic choice as my father bought additional land behind his property so that my brother and I could eventually build our properties there and we did so and we have enjoyed living here as it is so close to the beach and a short drive into Speightstown for shopping, banking, restaurants etc.

What makes this apartment unique

the property is just amazing and set back from the road with space for parking several vehicles and no traffic noise. My father chose this property because of the close proximity to Speightstown as his business was in that area.

Guestbook comments from the owner

It has been a wonderful stay. The house (studio) of Barbara is very nice, clean & well furnished. The verahdah is gorgeous. We slept very well because it's very quiet and the bed is comfortable. It's in a very convenient location & the beaches are so close you can walk there and to the bus stop too. We suggest you rent the studio because we really appreciate it, and Barbara is so kind and gentle.

Hope to return!

My husband stayed here for 9 days and had the most wonderful time! The location is perfect - the west side of the island, close to beaches and two towns. The place was simple, clean and perfect for us. We spent many mornings on the patio with a beautiful view of the gardens. My husband would go looking for mangos each day! Barbara was a wonderful and kind host and we had many lovely conversations. Thank you. We hope to return soon.

wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5
My wife, two year old and I stayed here for two weeks and had a wonderful time. The apartment is fully equipped with everything you might need and is kept beautifully cleaned. It felt very safe and it was always quiet at night - ideal for a restful sleep.
The garden proved to be a real bonus for our daughter who loved running around in it in the morning. We had such fond memories of our stay and would like to thank Barbara Ann for looking after us and making us feel so welcome. We hope to return again soon.

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5
Having visted Barbados many times and not wanting to stay on an all inclusive holiday complex I cannot believe how lucky my husband and I were to find this apartment. Comfort, Peace and Relaxation just what we were looking for. Right from the minute we arrived and were welcommed by Barbara Ann we felt at home. The apartment is well equiped with everything needed for a self catering holiday, clean and airy. Whilst air conditioning is available we did not use it. The breeze that comes into the apartment from the garden is very cooling and ceiling and free standing fans are provided which kept the apartment cool enough for us. Sitting on the patio feeding the birds in the morning, watching the green monkeys and their antics in the afternoon and sitting relaxing with a G and T on an evening was just perfect. Barbara Ann is on hand and is more than willing to assist and help with any queries or problems that you may have to ensure that you have a wonderful holiday, even providing us with bread, butter, milk, cereal and bananas so that we had our first breakfast catered for. If you have never visited Barbados and are looking for peace and quiet do not hesitate to book this apartment, it is close to the road (but not so close so that you hear the traffic) about 3 minutes walk from Gibbs Beach which is beautiful and 5 minutes walk to Mullins Beach Bar where you can enjoy a beer, snack or dine in the evening, buses are constantly available and will pick you up and take you anywehre you wish to go and shops are close by. The apartment offers affordability in what can be a pricy holiday location and is extremely safe. Thank you Barbara Ann for making our holiday perfect, should we return to Barbados (which we very much hope to do) you will be top of our booking list xxx

Best digs yet!

  • 5 of 5
This was our seventh trip to Barbados and Trinity is our favourite place that we have stayed in! We love the area but it can be a challenge finding affordable accommodation here, especially so close to the beach and bus routes. So we were delighted to find this little apartment--it is terrific value for money and I can't think of a single thing that could have been done to make our stay more comfortable. The apartment faces away from the main road, so it is extremely private and quiet--the garden is absolutely lovely, and much frequented by doves, bananaquits, hummingbirds, and even monkeys. Barbara Anne is a wonderful host. I'm already looking forward to next year's visit and am keeping fingers crossed that we will get to stay in this lovely place again!

Comfy and Cozy

  • 5 of 5
I traveled to Barbados for the first time alone. I was very happy this was the place I decided to choose. I felt so comfortable and safe. Barbara Anne is the best. This apartment was very nice, clean and had everything you needed for a pleasant stay. It was wonderful having breakfast outside in the morning and taking in the view. I was not a fan of the mango until I tasted the mango from the tree in front of the apartment. Be sure to grab one before the birds do. The apartment is very convenient to transportation and a store is also available in walking distance. The beach is right across the street and the water is very calm and beautiful. I would recommend this place to anyone.
Thank You Barbara Anne for thinking of everything.

Fantastic afordable apartment on west coast

  • 5 of 5
Well where to start.
We have been traveling to Barbados for years and have always had very good luck renting apartments, and this was no exception.This apartment is fabulous!!!!!!!!!!!.
Upon our arrival we were greeted by the owner Barbara anne , and I can't say enough good things about her.What a fantastic host.
Not only is this apartment in a great location on the west coast, but is also accross the street from the beach and so close to Speightown and Holetown and all the amenities.
The apartment is spottlessly clean and comfortable and is furnished with everything you could ever want for your stay. Barbara anne has thought of everything.The patio and back yard are an extra bonus.It is located in a nice quiet safe neighbourhood and is very private.It can be hard to find all these qualities at a reasonable price, but this one most definetly fits the bill.
I would reccomend this apartment to anyone looking for a fantastic comfortable & affordable stay in Barbados. Give it a try, you won't be dissapointed.
Hats off Barbara anne , you have a wonderful place and are a super host.
Can't wait to come back .Thanks again.

This area of Gibbes is a desirable area where locals and foreigners have their homes and where I live is directly between the beautiful Mullins and Gibbs beaches. There is an abundance of good shopping and restaurants in both the Speightstown and Holetown areas along with a 24/7 Medical Clinic, in Holetown. Local transport is easily accessible from my property.
