|Minimum Stay||7 nights|
This is a brand new, recently converted building consisting of apartments on Barbados' Platinum West Coast. The property is within walking distance to Jordan's Supermarket, and a short drive or bus-ride from the popular restaurant Cin Cin by the Sea.
Enjoy fabulous views of the Caribbean Sea from the seaside deck, or take a stroll along the serene beach. Whatever your choice, Sea Haven is the perfect accommodation for your Caribbean escape.
Our family and another family thoroughly enjoyed our week at Sea Haven. It was the first time on Barbados for the other family and we wanted to make sure they had a spectacular time. Sea Haven delivered!!! The accommodations are top notch and very family friendly. We were surprised one morning by a green monkey on the patio and visited daily by a very friendly parakeet. The children were thrilled!! We most definitely will return to this property.
We stayed at Sea Haven for 10 days in February 2015. What a perfect location...right on the beach with a beautiful spot for swimming with the turtles. When we weren't in the water we were sitting on the deck watching the sailboats go by and the monkeys playing in the trees. We were a 5 minute walk to the grocery store so we could make most of our own meals and close enough to Cin Cin and Il Tempio if we wanted a dinner out.
The one-bedroom apartment is on the small-side for the cost, however, we considered the patio as our living room since we were able to sit there from morning til night each day. It was entirely covered so we could escape the sun and the occasional rain shower. We ate all our meals out there as well which was lovely to have dinner while watching the stars come out each night.
We are already planning our trip for next year to Sea Haven.
This is a lovely property in an undeniably beautiful location, right on the beach, convenient to get to Holetown, Speightstown and Bridgetown. There is a supermarket and fish market (in opposite directions) within walking distance.
The villas are kept beautifully clean by Ventrice, who is most helpful and friendly. WI-fi is available.
Any criticism is purely constructive and in no way detrimental. For example, there was no coffee maker in the apartment but one arrived speedily after our request. We stayed in one of the 1 bedroom apartments and it was quite sufficient for our needs, especially as we got on very well with the family staying in the 3 bedroom apartment. However, I feel that an inside seating area is lacking. It would be a great property to rent in it's entirety - 2 x 1 bedroom and 1 x 3 bedroom when the lack of seating in the smaller spaces wouldn't matter as you would have the lounge area in the larger apartment.
That said - we had a great time and would recommend Sea Haven. We're regular visitors to Barbados and we discovered Cariba restaurant this time - went twice (within walking distance), great food, recommend booking. Also, Il Tempio - a stroll along the beach is great for happy hour and a spot of lunch.
Also, went to The Fish Pot for the first time which is just North of Speightstown and that was glorious - we'll return there next time.
This is a recently refurbished, super clean and well maintained property right on the beach in a great part of the island. We stayed our first 4 days here and the only reason we left is that we had booked 1 of the 2 "one bedroom" suites, which are essentially underneath the main house on the ground level. This means the ceiling heights are simply average, and since the space per se is modest with an eat in kitchen, average bedroom and bath, it was one room too small for my friend and I to share. We felt like we needed a proper sitting room to feel like we had rented a real 1 bedroom. Stated another way, this is really a nice size studio with rooms but no real view,, but once you step outside the door, you are literally 3 steps from lounge chairs and table on a shared patio right in front of the beach. We arrived when it was raining and so the lack of an indoor sitting room was immediately apparent, and we immediately called Shauna, the property manager, and explained that the space was much smaller than we expected and she generously offered to help us find larger accommodations. Shauna bent over backwards to make our stay on the island pleasant and memorable. She was literally so amazing that we were actually tempted to stay after the few days that it took us to find alternate lodging that afforded us much more space further up the west side in Holetown. Shauna promptly refunded us the balance of our rent due us and kept in touch to make sure we were fine. I could not have asked for more attentive, caring, professional service. The only other constructive comment I have is that we never got the wifi to work, although we understand that the tenants in the main part of the house were able to access the internet, and the day we were leaving the technician did arrive to help us with it. Perhaps the wifi info can be made more transparent from day 1. In short, this is really a great studio on the beach, versus a 1 bedroom, as one reasonably expects a living room with a 1BR. Also, the family renting the unit above us in the main part of the house had 2 small children who were well behaved, but we could hear the youngest running some times, but this was rare as most of the time, we were all at the beach enjoying life. But the patio area, even with separate seating areas for each unit, is essentially one big space. Good news is that it is in front of a lovely beach and a sea view that is magical.
We had a fabulous time in this brand new, clean, lovely one bedroom apartment. This is our fifth visit to beautiful Barbados, and we usually stay in a villa with friends, but this year the villa was full, so we opted to stay just a few doors down at Sea Haven. It was nice having the entire property to ourselves! The only thing missing was an auto drip coffee maker, but we made do! We dined at Il Tiempo one night, which was steps down the beach, food was excellent! We enjoyed a three hour catamaran sail, snorkeling with sea turtles and a shipwreck, also took a van to Crane beach, about a half hour away! Overall, we had a great time, and would definitely recommend Sea Haven to all! Also, the property manager and rental agent Shauna were fabulous!
After a long search we found this apartment. It is brand new so we were apprehensive about the teething problems......there were none !
Kathy met us on arrival and we got settled in quickly.
After a short tour of the property, we went off for dinner at Cin Cin.......excellent food and location. ...
The following day we got up early and had a swim right out front, showered off and lazed around the deck on the new lounge chairs. This place is perfect. The attention to detail is amazing. There are 2 small apartments and 1 large one. The one we stayed in was perfect for 2 persons. There was a strong new queen sized bed, with ensuite bathroom and a good shower (I hate slow showers with cramped space) The kitchen was surprisingly spacious and well equipped.
Considering the quality of accommodation and location, we found the price to be very competitive
All in all we were very happy and look forward to coming back.
