First time in Barbados, first class accommodation!

This was our first visit, and absolutely delighted by this villa. It is everything the pictures show, absolutely super. Owners really helpful and accommodating, and all the information left is really helpful. Only minor adjustment is that bedroom 2 says large double bed - whereas we'd say it is a standard double. The location is as others describe it and I can't think of a better place to start the experience. I'd advise those new to the island to use the bus services (right outside the door) for all local runs. The island is only small - and can be done by public transport - but would agree with a taxi driver for one day - suggest doing it early - as they will give you a tour of the island probably better than an organised group. Agree an hourly rate. We had a guy called Carlisle who was absolutely super. We wanted to do Harrisons cave and west coast. Didn't pre book Harrison's cave (tip for those who are going), and we arrived about 9.30 but were just pipped to post - so had to return 11.00 am - but no big deal. Carlisle anticipated this and took us on a trip round and about and had us back ready for Harissons at our 11.00 am slot. We ended up doing the west side (with a rum shop stop), and right down the east coast. If you do it early in our holiday it gives you a better grounding of the island and gives more confidence in doing your own thing later on public transport. Crane Beach on the Sam Lord bus (all buses outside apartment), Silver Sands, Speightstown all done on public tranport. Oistins on Friday - beat the rush hour bus traffic. The large buses have to stick to the route (small white buses may do back streets, and taxis will avoid the slow traffic). The boardwalk outside is brilliant - with excellent restaurants to suit all pockets within easy access. Would suggest booking restaurants to save having to wait - especially at weekends and in St Lawrence Gap or along boardwalk. The people are so helpful and nice. Re apartment - it is a private apartment - there is no general reception (we wrongly assumed there would be -so weren't too clever in agreeing a specific arrival time). Our taxi driver helpfully phoned up for us - we just "turned up", and would have been having to use English mobiles and working out codes - so just make sure owner knows when you are arriving or you won't be able to get in..... All sorted efficiently for us though. We'll be back! Chris and Ken, Wirral, England

Great Location, Stunning Views

My family has vacationed twice at South Ocean Villas. Our first stay was much more than we could have ever expected. The accommodations were perfect for our needs. During our three week stay, we had different family members and friends joining us. The unit was so comfortable, the decor refreshing and the amenities made this one of the most relaxing and stress free trips we have ever taken. Being able to prepare meals if needed and having a washer and dryer was great (lighter packing!). The lovely pool and deck to relax on was perfect, not to mention you are a step out the back gate to the beach.

Mark’s island guide was most helpful and Quammie’s tour and knowledge of the island was both entertaining and educational. Quammie’s tour is the way to go if it is your first visit to the island; he will design your tour to suit your interest and time restraints, not to mention he is very reasonable. He can provide you with information on just about anything you want to do while in Barbados.

We cannot say enough about the location. It is perfect! Having a view of some of the most breathtaking sunrises and sunsets from the balcony is priceless. The boardwalk provides for a great morning walk or run. The boardwalk also provides an easy path to Accra Beach and a variety of oceanfront restaurants. The unit is within walking distance of grocery stores, shops and restaurants. It did not take us long to feel safe and comfortable using the public transportation system buses and “route taxis”. We loved exploring the island and finding local places to eat and getting to know the people of Barbados.

But what we love most about the island and what keeps us returning is the people of Barbados. They are friendly, courteous, and always willing to answer any question and provide assistance if needed.

I could go on and on about Barbados, but you really need to experience it yourself. Staying at South Ocean Villas will not only make your visit one to remember but it will bring you back!

My hsuband, and three children and I stayed in this apartment in March 2009. It was clean and very well maintained. The view and sound of the sea was like nothing we had experienced before. The apartment has all the amenities to prepare and cook food, important with small children, as well as good living accomodation and very comfy beds. The location, right on the beach, was brilliant - a short walk to the Hilton beach one way, and a short walk to Rockley beach the other. The newly built boardwalk made this even easier! Lots of good restaurants nearby, and public transport right outside the door will take you anywhere on the island. I would highly recommend this to anyone visiting the island, and we will definitely be returning in the near future.
