About the property

Apartment, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

We invite you to savour the hospitality of Rio Santo Residences, a charming, typically Barbados stone property, designed with striking hardwood balustrades on its patios and verandahs. Nestled in a quiet cul de sac, it is undoubtedly an ideal retreat from the daily hustle and bustle.

We offer a well-appointed traditional three-bedroom house and two adjoining modern one-bedroom apartments, all on a self-catering basis.

In this three-bedroom ground floor house, you will enjoy the convenience of a large patio and wet bar; a living room, cooled by ceiling fan, that seats six comfortably; a separate entertainment area with TV, radio/cassette stereo, DVD and video facilities; a kitchen fully-outfitted with large refrigerator; four-burner stove; microwave oven; toaster; electric kettle; pots and pans; crockery; cutlery, etc., and a laundry room equipped with washer and dryer.

You will be able to sleep six persons in the air-conditioned bedrooms and an additional two persons on the sofa-bed, if required. Two bathrooms complete this very desirable villa.

In each of the one-bedroom apartments, we offer accommodation for two to three persons. Here you will find an open plan layout with flow-through living, dining and kitchen. We feature in the kitchen a small refrigerator; four-burner stove; microwave oven; toaster; electric kettle; pots and pans; crockery; cutlery, etc.

In the air-conditioned bedroom are two twin beds, which may be joined or separated as needed. . Of course, we also have an ample supply of linens.

When you are not on the beach, you may wish to enjoy the sun’s rays on the large sun deck or relax with a cool local beverage of your choice.

Rio Santo Residences is advantageously located close to the famous St. Lawrence Gap in Barbados, and across the street from a white sandy beach, washed by the crystal clear turquoise waters of the Caribbean sea. Mere yards away is the popular Accra Beach.

Nearby, within walking distance, are supermarkets, banks, medical offices, pharmacy, shops, hotels, restaurants, bars and nightclubs. The area is heavily trafficked, well-lighted and safe for walking.

As the property is virtually on the bus transportation route, a car is not essential but most people elect to have one, especially for sight-seeing and travel to venues outside the immediate vicinity. For those preferring not to drive themselves, taxi service is readily available.

Within ten minutes by car are the Rockley Golf Club, the National Tennis Centre, the Garrison Historic Area (including the headquarters of the Barbados Defense Force and the Garrison Savannah horse racing track), and the Museum and Historical Society. It is about 15 minutes to the capital city Bridgetown and 20 minutes to the Grantley Adams International Airport. UNESCO recently designated Bridgetown and the Garrison Historic Area as an international heritage site.

The South Coast of Barbados has great appeal to the visitor. It is vibrant, with great night life and many excellent restaurants. Mojo's is next door and a short walk away is everyone's favourite Champers Restaurant and Wine Bar. The best known area is the popular St. Lawrence Gap. There you will find the After Dark Night Club, the popular Pisces Restaurant, The Ship Inn offering a sports bar, restaurant and nightclub, Josef’s Restaurant, the Bay Bistro, McBride’s, and gaming arcades, among other attractions. Also within easy reach is Oistin’s Town, famous for its fresh fish fries and down-to-earth ambience.

Rio Santo is your home away from home. From there, you can Reach Out And Touch Barbados!

Awesome house and location

  • 5 of 5

I'm so glad we picked this house. It was absolutely perfect. Well stocked kitchen, washer and dryer, two living rooms a dining room and 3 bedrooms. The front porch was the best part and so relaxing. Air conditioning in a all bedrooms and main parts of the house had fans. At first I was worried about that coming from the states but it wasn't bad at all. The location was ideal. Located at the end of a street which made you feel very safe which was important because it was just 3 women traveling. Walk across the street to the beach, Mojos Reataurant was just a little walk along with the grocery store. We took the bus for $2 (Barbados) to st Lawrence gap and to Oistins. Anton was amazing and met as very late when we arrived (12:30am) to greet us and show us around. Any problems we had he was right on it. We will stay here again with no doubt. You can't beat the price either.

Nice, quiet and central location

  • 4 of 5

We were a little concerned initially about potential noise from the bar/restaurant Mojos, which is a poplar place, but to our surprise it was fairly quiet. The area is very nice, central to numerous beaches, grocery stores, restaurants and night life. We stayed in the one bedroom unit which is sufficiently appointed and well maintained. At least 10 parrots live in the trees surrounding the property. We felt safe the whole time. Owner very pleasant and accommodating. Definitley reccomend

The location of the house was great. Not far from the beach. Close to the grocery store. We were there for 10 days and didn't need a car a all. Anton was wonderful. The house was clean. It is not fancy. Everything thing that we needed was there. I cannot wait to go back

Amazing time in Barbados!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, our two young daughters, and I stayed at Rio Santos from February 15-22, 2014. We had the most wonderful vacation, and we can't wait to go back. The house is in the perfect location, within walking distance (even with a 2 and 5 year old) to some of the most beautiful beaches we have been to, a grocery store, and many restaurants. A short bus ride away is Oistens Market and many other Barbados attractions. The house itself is perfectly spotless. I was very impressed with the cleanliness, and this was very important to me. The kitchen is fully stocked with all of the necessary supplies to make food (and coffee), and the tap water is drinkable. It was great having a washer and dryer so we could wash our beach towels/ bathing suits when necessary. I felt completely safe in the area and found the neighbours to be very friendly, yet quiet. Anton was incredibly professional, friendly, and helpful, and I communicated with him a few times during our stay (via email- the house has WIFI and a telephone) with questions, which he always answered promptly and accurately. I would highly recommend Rio Santos and very much look forward to returning!

We have been to Barbados three times now and this Villa is certainly the best place we have stayed.!! It is very homely and well equipped. Its position is so central for moving round the island and so close for everything you need such as the beautiful beach across the road, nightlife in the Gap, public transport and supermarkets within two minutes walk. We would not hesitate to return here to either the villa or the studios. Anton was a great host and looked after any problems we had quickly.

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

Is this a posh high end resort, no. Is this a clean, safe, comfortable villa close to the beach and centrally located, you bet it is!

Anton is an extremely nice man that will do his utmost to make your stay as enjoyable as possable. I wish all owners where as nice, attentive and accommodating as Anton.

The villa is located within walking distance to 3 grocery stores, several restaurants, shopping, beaches, car rentals, gas station and more. Rest assured that the next time we go to Barbados we'll be staying at villa Santos.
