Overview

About the property

Recently Modernised 2-bedroom Apartment With Stunning Views of Beach & Sea

Attractive upstairs apartment, in beach-side house with communal patio, leading directly onto one of the quietest and most beautiful beaches on the West Coast, with excellent swimming and snorkelling in the crystal waters of the Caribbean. Comprising 2 air-conditioned bedrooms, one with en-suite bathroom, the other with en-suite shower room and washing machine. There is a well-equipped modern kitchen for the chefs among your party. The lovely light sitting room, with stunning views of the Caribbean and the beach, has a cooling breeze blowing through it for most of the year. In essence perfection.

The village shopping centre and supermarket are within easy reach on foot. There are several excellent restaurants nearby, including the world-renowned Cliff. We are 1.5 km away from Sandy Lane and its world-class golf facilities. Waters sports, fishing, and glass-bottomed boats are virtually on the doorstep - and, if requested, many will pick you up from the beach.. For those who don’t wish to hire a car the bus stop is nearby, and the buses run frequently up until 11.30 pm. The apartment has Wifi internet access and on site security.

Little Reef is well situated for multiple activities. From the very beautiful beach, a few short steps away, there is snorkelling on the reef, where you may spot one of the resident turtles, meandering among shoals of brightly coloured fish. Boating and water sport activities are also on offer from operators on the way to the big resorts past Sandy Lane. Fishermen bring their daily catch into Fitts Village, just in front of Jordan's Supermarket, a five-minute walk along the beach.

For those who don’t want to miss the exploits of their favourite team, Wendy’s sports bar is just a couple of minutes away, across the road. Wendy's also have a snack bar. Alternatively there’s the Surfside bar in Holetown (15 minutes away by bus and car), a great spot for being on the beach and watching the footie at the same time. Holetown is also the place to go to if you want a bank, pizza or the larger Massy’s supermarket, which will deliver your shopping if you don't have a car. Holetown also boasts plenty of watering holes and restaurants. Bridgetown and the South Coast are around twenty minutes by car and the buses run regularly.

If you just want to chill out Little Reef’s balcony is a great place for watching the frigate birds wheeling above, maybe a fisherman making a catch, and world go by – and, if you are up early and very, very, lucky you may get a glimpse of a monkey in the nearby shack-shack tree. If you want take a tan back home Little Reef has a lovely sunny patio, or you can take the extra few steps to the beach. At the end of the day there is often nothing better than a walk along the beach or just watching a beautiful sunset and the boats making for home, while you enjoy a sundowner.

About Richard Britton

Paula and I live in Cyprus and have been visiting and living in Little Reef over the last 35 years with our family. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Richard Britton purchased this apartment in 1981

Why Richard Britton chose St. James

This is a family property which my late father bought when he was working in Barbados. He spent up to 4 or 5 months living in it every year and he last visited in 2013 when he was in his 99th year. The property has been used by 4 generations of our family and is much loved by all, as is the island of Barbados and its people.

What makes this apartment unique

Little Reef is thought of with affection by all members of our family, because of its location on a beautiful white sand bay untouched by commercialism, and the many happy vacations spent there. The perfect place for chilling out.

Can't get any closer to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

The host was very communicative and answered all my questions in a timely manner. The apartment was simple but comfortable and the view....to die for! I am a light sleeper and the noise from the road woke me up every morning but as soon as I opened the curtains and saw, heard and smelled the beautiful Caribbean Sea it was well worth it! A basically private beach is literally at your doorstop, you won't want to leave Little Reef, trust me!

Perfect spot by the beach

  • 4 of 5

Very well equipped apartment, perfect for a couple or small family. We found everything we needed from the apartment, small supermarket was within a walking distance. The view is beautiful, so we stayed many evenings at the apartment and watched the sun go down.

There's a busy road just in front of the house, so if you're a light sleeper this might bother you. On the other hand bus stops are only a few meters away, so you can easily take a bus to Bridgetown or to north of the island.

Great location to visit the island

  • 5 of 5

Spent 9 nights in Richards apartment and the views are breathtaking. Grantley who looks after the apartment and lives next door is always on hand if we needed him. [What a lovely guy he is]

Everything you needed for a self catering holiday is in this apartment. Your only 5 mins from Holetown by bus. Many thanks Richard for letting us rent your apartment.

Fantastic View and Location

  • 5 of 5

The view from Little Reef is simply amazing. Lots of fun to be had in the water with some waves and good snorkelling. Richard, Shirley and Grantley were wonderful.

Exactly what we wished for !

  • 5 of 5

Wow, what a view, exactly the way its shown. We loved it and booked again for next year while we were there. Great swim hole right next door to the left which we lived in everyday. Dont rent a car, take the yellow bus where ever you want to go, even a day trip to the other side of the island. 1.00 US dollar each. Great experience! Went to Holetown a few times as the larger grocery store is there (Massey's) more veggies and selections of meats etc... Jordans, a ten minute walk to the left down the beach is all you need for the smaller things you need in groceries. Just minutes on the bus to Holetown. Be adventurous and get off anywhere and walk down any street to a beach, you will never be dissapointed. Just another 1.00 each to get back on and go again. Very safe and secure island and apartment. Unlike any island we have ever been to. Grantley and Esta next door will help you in any information or anything you need and Dave the taxi driver was always available even if we phoned the night before. Highly highly recommend this villa, but now im giving away my secret paradise destination and will compete in bookings now... I did alot of research prior to this booking and certainly was Not dissapointed!

Fitts Village is predominantly a residential area virtually untouched by commercialism. For golfers there are 5 courses within half an hour's drive, including 3 courses at Sandy Lane and the Royal Westmoreland only 5 minutes away. A short trip along the road to Holetown brings you to the Chattel houses, which contain local arts and crafts for sale - and for non- shoppers you can have a coffee and read the paper. For divers the West Side Scuba Centre is in the same location

The Earthworks Pottery, which is only a 15/20 minute drive way is well worth a visit. Speightstown, with its historic buildings - some dating back to soon after the first settlement of Barbados - is 15/20 minutes beyond Holetown. Bridgetown, which is a short trip by bus or car, also has historic buildings, the beautiful Carenage where boats moor, fish and vegetable markets, good shops, and for cricket lovers the Kensington Oval.
