The beach here is the reason we've been coming to Carlisle Bay on cruise stops for a few years. We decided we just had to stay ON the beach for longer than one day. Jens' Penthouse Suite is perfect for that. It takes about a minute to get to the greatest sand I've ever seen with calm, clear water to go along with it. There is a large umbrella with loungers just like you see at the beach bars for your use. The beach is just over one mile long from the rocks? by Bridgetown to the Radisson pier. You couldn't ask for a more gracious host. Jens as always ready with suggestions and set us up with a taxi driver to take us for an island tour.
The penthouse was very clean, tidy and had everything we needed once we added our groceries. There was air conditioning in the bedrooms which we found we didn't really need. You can walk out the front door and get on a ZR van for $2 Barbadian and get anywhere from Oistins to Speightstown. A lot within walking distance, too. It isn't really a touristy area but takes only minutes to get to one. Being so close to the road you hear some road noise but after the first night I didn't really notice it anymore. We would love to come back and would not hesitate for a second to recommend it to anyone else. Two things; pay close attention to the instructions for the safe. They are very clear but you need to actually read them. And don't try vaulting the gate... :)
The owners are lovely people who were kind and generous. The unit is updated nicely with everything you would need. Best and most convenient place we have stayed at in Barbados. We will definitely return.
