About the property

One Bed, Sitting Room / Kitchenette, Large Swimming Pool, Private Garden / Deck

Sea Breeze is accommodates one or two people there is a super king size bed or two singles. It is ideal for anyone who wants to holiday on their own or even work in solitude. World famous Bottom Bay is a stone throw away, pure white sand, aquamarine coloured ocean and swaying palms..paradise on earth.

Wi Fi is included.

Two beach towels are provided for the duration of the stay, changed weekly.

The apt is cleaned every week with fresh bed linen and towels. If required maid service is available for cleaning at an extra charge.

Absolutely ideal for getting away from the maddening crowd yet a 20 minute drive will bring you to the lively South Coast abundant with café's, bars and restaurants and not forgetting the tropical beaches and azure coloured ocean. The west coast with its luxurious hotels, great shopping and famous restaurants is a 25 minute drive away.

Breathe taking Bathsheba is a few miles away and ideal for surfers.

It is a 15 minute drive from Grantley Adams airport, 10 minutes to a large supermarket, banks and Chinese takeaway. There is upmarket dining at the Crane and Atlantis hotels and numerous rum shops.

Guest Access

Guests have their own private tropical garden with private access the dog is not allowed in here.

There is another gate which has access to the swimming pool and deck. This area is shared with myself and Duke....with the exception of the terrace which is private. The pool is available for guests up to sunset.

Guests may use my washing machine.

Interaction with Guests

I like to welcome my guests with a complimentary cold beer in the fridge and a welcome food package. I do offer a list of groceries which I can supply at a cost.

Interaction with my guests is entirely up to them, I understand that some guests want to enjoy their own space whilst others like to engage in conversation. All guests will be invited for a sundowner or supper at some point in their stay.

I like to take the hassle out of organising trips, car rentals etc for my guests so I am happy to do that for you. I can provide island tours, catamaran, sailing, deep sea fishing,submarine, zipling, horse riding, horticultural, museum, trips to name a few. The National Trust operates in the high season and I highly recommend their weekly openings of historical buildings, for a small fee. Also a microlight trip along the beautiful East Coast.

The Neighbourhood

What can I say. I thank my lucky stars everyday that I walk along the scenic cliff tops with my Duke and look at the breathe taking views of the Ocean and sandy white tropical beaches.Heaven on earth.

Getting around

The bus service in Barbados is very good and regular. The nearest bus stop is about a ten minute walk and a small hill. It is probably advisable to hire a car. Sea Breeze is a 15 minute car/taxi ride from the airport.

About Diana Robertson

Having travelled extensively throughout the Caribbean, Barbados became a favourite destination hence the purchase of the Villa. Walking everyday on the cliffs with my wonderful companion Duke I thank my lucky stars for being so fortunate to live here. Duke is a four year old Akita / German Shepherd cross so anyone wishing to stay at Sea Breeze must like dogs. Although the apartment has a private deck and garden. I also have a large tortoise Horace who is a she, but that's another story.

Diana Robertson purchased this villa in 2007

Why Diana Robertson chose Apple Hall

Sea Breeze is one of the largest properties on the development as the original plans were extended, to include larger rooms and a bigger swimming pool.

Why pay double for a villa when you can get nearly two weeks for the price of one. Sea Breeze is the only one of its kind on the Atlantic Rising and perfect for a single or two persons.

What makes this villa unique

Bottom Bay Beach - is a wide stretch of white sand that is lined with coconut palms and shallow reefs at the shoreline.What can I say. I thank my lucky stars everyday that I walk along the scenic cliff tops with my Duke and look at the breathe taking views of the Ocean and sandy white tropical beaches.Heaven on earth.

It is a picture perfect castaway beach, and is located about 150 meters away. Totally unspoilt and often you will have the beach to yourself, unless someone is getting married!!. Walk down steps to access the picturesque, azure ocean. There is usually a local guy who will rent you a sun bed.

There is an area to wade in the very blue sea and the bay also produces slightly large waves, ideal for the boogie boarder. As there are not too many facilities, this beach is perfect for setting up a picnic with the family under the 100 foot coconut trees.( mind your head!) A local guy will usually climb one of the smaller trees and pick and open a coconut for you. Drink the coconut water straight from the fruit and be sure to try the jelly inside.

There are other amazing beautiful beaches close by Harris Smiths, Long Bay and Palmetto.

Thorough recommended.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed everything about our stay in Diana’s apartment. It was spotlessly clean and all the equipment worked well. We enjoyed having our own front door and private garden. Trees screened the garden from the outside while still allowing the refreshing breeze to flow through. The bedroom with its giant bed had windows on two side making the air on unnecessary. The shower is large with good quality towels provided. The sitting room is comfortable with a two seater sofa and an armchair. The kitchen has all you need to cook large or small meals.

Diana is very welcoming treating her visitors as guests. She is not in your face at all but is around if people want to chat. We enjoyed her company very much as well as that of her dog Duke and tortoise chequers.

In our opinion a car is essential for stays here. The nearest food shop is a good twenty to half an hours walk away especially in the heat. Diana arranged good quality car hire for us.

We can thoroughly recommend this apartment.

Lovely properety with a nice pool and private sitting area

  • 4 of 5

Comfortable beds, plenty of storage and hangers. Decent bathroom with shower. Shared pool with owner but this was not a problem. Had good private outside area. Was quite distant from resorts so would probably recommend a car. Buses were frequent and cheap but so packed. Felt sorry for locals having to use them on a regular basis! The Boatyard in Bridgetown was lovely. Loved St Lawrence and Holetown. Food was great, flying fish a firm favourite as was the rice and peas. some really good local walks but take plenty of water with you. Overall a good holiday.

Had an amazing relaxing time!!

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I just enjoyed 6 days at Diana's lovely Barbados home!! We enjoyed our own private patio, had our own kitchen, bedroom with a king size bed, bathroom and living room. Beach and bath towels were included and the area was quiet and within walking distance to the beach. We had full access to Diana's pool and enjoyed it quite a bit!! And we can't forget to mention Duke...Diana's beautiful and super layed back dog who we felt very comfortable being and having around. Diana arranged to have a taxi meet us at the airport and their service was great..very professional and always showed up on time and even stopped at the grocery store on our way to the villa from the airport (saved us a trip out).

Diana was an amazing host & welcomed us and we felt very comfortable & safe throughout our stay.

Diana, thank you again for making us feel so welcomed, we had an amazing time!!

This has been an amazing trip. Di's hospitality was above and beyond. Couldnt ask for a better host.

  • 5 of 5

The hopsitality is beyond what anyone could expect. It is truly amazing to be welcomed as a friend rather than a customer.

The Bottom Bay beach is a short walk away. The views have been breathtaking, the breeze...unbelieveable. I would definitley recommend Barabados to anyone, especially staying here. You are away from the hustle and bustle of the city. However it is just a short bus or taxi ride away.

I was looking for a place to get away and relax, and this has surpassed all of my expectations.
