Overview

Sandy Lane Condo Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom + sofa/bed - 1 Bath - (Sleeps 2-4)

The rental property is a cozy, comfortable, clean unit within a 5 to 7 minute walk to the entrance to the public beach and is one block from the main beach road (with regular bus service to and from Bridgetown). Sandy Lane beach (one of the best beaches in the west coast of Barbados) is an additional 10 minute walk from the condo. Holetown (the 2nd largest town in Barbados) is a 7 minute walk north from the condo with local services available like supermarkets, restaurants, health clinics and the brand new Limegrove Shopping Centre with great upscale shops (Louis Vutton, etc.), a new cinema, restaurants, etc.

The condo is immediately next door to Sunset Mall that has a local bank, a large duty free store (Cave Sheppard), photo shop (with Internet service) and other smaller shops. There is also a mini-mall across the street that has a convenience store and coffee shop (with free internet) . In addition, there is a local food van that sells lunch from monday to friday with local Barbados (Bajan) food such as chicken, pork, fish, etc., parks immediately across the street from the condo and has very reasonable prices that is a nice option from the more expensive restaurants in the area.

The condo has one bedroom with a queen size bed and air-conditioning. The kitchen has a fridge, stove, microwave, and is fully equipped. The sitting\dining room has a couch (that converts into a small additional double bed), two separate lounging arm chairs, a ceiling fan, cable TV , DVD player and a CD-AM\FM radio unit. There is also a small breakfast\dining table with four chairs next to the kitchen. The en-suite washroom (100% renovated in 2010) has a shower only (no bathtub). The front enclosed patio has a table and chairs for lounging. A BBQ grill (charcoal) is available for use that can be rolled out to the front lawn for those who like to BBQ their fish or meats. There is also a private parking spot in front of condo (for a rental car, guest parking, etc.).

A pay-as-you go cell phone is also available for use by guests that will enable guests to make local and oversea calls (without incurring roaming charges) and also to receive calls from family and friends from abroad.

The condo's location immediately near the beach, shopping, restaurants, 24 hr. medical clinic and Holetown ensure that guests do not have to rent a car while in Barbados if they do not want to do so since everything is essentially within a 10-15 minute walk from the condo.

Green monkeys may also be seen in the neighbourhood, particularly early in the mornings near the Europa All Seasons Resort (2 block walk from the condo). They usually feed by the ravine area (ask the locals where to spot them!).

There is also a brand new Boardwalk (completed in Dec 2013) by the seaside that runs from the local beach in a northerly direction towards Holetown and beyond and is home to additional beaches and beach-side bars and restaurants (approximately 1 km. to Holetown). This Boardwalk has also recently been extended beyond Holetown and now provides for a fabulous walk (45 min to 1 hour) all the way northwards towards Speightstown and is a fantastic addition to things to do in our local area.

Great Owners and Great Loacation!

  • 5 of 5

Great budget accommodation in an excellent location. Very close to coffe shops, restaurant, convenience/beach shop, bank, duty free shopping, bus stops ...and more importantly, right by Cheryl's food truck with delicious food, and only about a 5 minute or less walk to the beach! Owner and property manager were also very reliable and made us feel welcome. I would definitely stay here again!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your very nice review! We are glad that you enjoyed your stay at the condo and that Barbados lived up to its expectations for the two of you. Your stay was very short (only 1 week) so we hope you will consider a return trip one day to see everything else that you missed the first time around. Your review does accurately reflect most of the things that our condo's location has to offer and, while it is a budget accommodation, we do try to provide everything that we can think of to ensure that our guests' stay will be as comfortable as possible. We wish you all the best with your future travel adventures! Robert and Fay

recommended budget apartment

  • 5 of 5

The apartment selected from the cheapest ones was a perfect choice, both for the position and for comfort.

The bed is comfortable and the shower is large and doesen't flood the bathroom.

The kitchen is equipped with everything you need to cook any dish.

The living room has a sofa that turns into bed that we used to sleep the child .

The house is quite warm , but equipped with air conditioning and fans .

The veranda is equipped with barbeque , but we have not used .

Two steps away there's the Beach House , a club with swimming pool and easy access to the beach . Free Wifi is useful for updating your social networks .

A few meters away you can find restaurants and supermarkets , and if you are fussy then there is also Luis Vuitton.

Owner's Response: Dear Angelo, We are extremely happy that you found the condo suitable for your family's stay and that you were overall happy with the accommodations. Your travel time in August was an extremely hot time of the year to visit Barbados so it was unavoidable that you would find the condo hot at that time of the year. It is for that reason that we have air conditioning in the bedroom and the use of the A/C is included in the cost of the booking. Most places with A/C in Sunset Crest charge extra for its use but we do not. Finally, while we are a "budget" type accommodation, we do try to provide everything that a guest would need to be comfortable and to truly have a wonderful stay in Barbados and we are extremely happy that you were able to enjoy your stay. We look forward to a time in the future where you might want to visit Barbados once again and we might be able to assist in you having a great holiday there sometime in the future. Wish you and your family all the best, as always. Robert and Fay

An excellent self catering base

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a 2 week stay at the Condo and enjoyed every minute, over the last 17 years we have rented several apartments / condos and to be honest this is the best so far and would return on our next visit.The accommodation is clean and has everything you would need, the added bonus was the air conditioning in the bedroom,we had many comfortable nights of sleep and in the daytime it cooled the whole of the property.

We are very familiar with the area and this was a perfect base for us. In addition I would like to add that Sarah and Beunita are both very warm and welcoming which is not always the case when renting a property.

Would recommend a visit.

Owner's Response: We continue to be humbled when we get reviews for our condo such as yours and we couldn't be happier that you enjoyed your stay, even during a time when it is, technically, the rainy season! Obviously, the rain did not affect the quality of your holiday and we are extremely happy that our condo met with all of your expectations. As you know, we do try to make sure that our prospective guests know exactly what they will be getting when renting our condo (that is not always the case with other rental properties) and we are continuously looking at adding additional value to the property so as to make our guests stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible! Thank you once again for your review and we look forward to being able to be of help, once again, with a possible future return trip to Sunset Crest. Wish you all the best, as always! Robert and Fay

Home Away From Home

  • 4 of 5

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here. The condo was truly a home away from home. It was equipped with everything I needed and was close to EVERYTHING (supermarket, bus, banks, coffee shop, convenience store, shopping, beach, pool, you name it!). The owner, Rob, gave outstanding customer service from the time I booked the reservation and it continued right up until I checked in. He gave such helpful, and detailed information that made me feel so comfortable and confident that I made a great choice by choosing to stay at his condo. The only thing is I wished it had it's own Wi-Fi. I tried to pick up the free Wi-Fi from the coffee shop across the street but it was very unstable and weak inside the condo and even on the patio most times. Other than that, everything was great. I most definitely will stay at the condo again in the future. I am actually looking forward to it right now and I just got home last night! Definitely worth the price. You won't regret it!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your very gracious review of your stay at the condo. We are always humbled when we get this kind of response for what is, essentially, a budget accommodation in Barbados. Fortunately for us, the condo is in a great location and we do otherwise try to ensure that we provide the best customer service that we can manage. We do know that having to rely on the free internet service from the coffee shop across the street is a weakness with respect to the features that we offer but that is one of the ways that we manage to keep our rental rates the lowest possible for our area. There is also free internet at the Beach Club (that is a 7 minute walk from the condo and that we provide access to for our guests during their stay) but, unfortunately, as you know, they were closed for renovations during the time of your stay at the condo. In addition, there is also free internet at the mall where the supermarket is located (10 minute walk from the condo) so there are a few other options for internet access in the area nearby. However, in the future, if we are able to figure out a way to provide internet service directly at the condo without having to raise our rental rates excessively, we assure you that we will do so. Thank you once again for taking the time and trouble to provide a guest review and we look forward to a time in the future when we might be able to assist you with a future trip to Barbados. Wish you all the best! Rob and Fay

Excellent value and great location!

  • 5 of 5

I had spent most of my holiday budget on getting to Barbados (from UK) so I knew from the outset that I was looking for a budget (self catering) apartment. Further I was travelling with my 13 year old daughter so also wanted somewhere that was clean and tidy, safe and secure, as well as closeby to things to do. I really couldn't have asked for anything more with this apartment! Rob and Fay were readily to hand to answer my myriad of questions and concerns with openness. Rob sends you video footage so you can really see what you are getting (both in the cottage and in the locality) in the utmost detail, so there are no surprises and you have realistic expectations. In the apartment we really valued the aircon and fans to help cool us as well as the range of up to date DVDs and the comfy armchairs and sofa (not always a given in holiday rentals). We weren't out often or late in the evening so that was great for us. The patio was pleasant too: spacious and secure. It really had everything we needed and fitted our requirements perfectly..

What I also appreciated - alongside its affordable nature - was its location. After seeing various places on the island snorkelling at nearby Beachlands was still our favourite activity and so close! We also enjoyed the access to the beach club (though only once as beaches are all so beautiful) and loved going to Surfside beach bar for sundowners, walking the boardwalk, wading to Sandy Lane bay, getting about on reggae buses, window shopping closeby at malls (Limegrove and Sunset), cinema (you can order snacks and drinks to your table!). The supermarket being close by too within walking distance was really helpful.

From my perspective this is an excellent value apartment so If you too are looking for somewhere affordable then this is just the ticket! I'm hoarding my pennies until I can visit again!

Owner's Response: Dear Fiona, We are extremely happy that you had a fabulous holiday and that your expectations were met both as regards the condo accomodations as well as the area where the condo is located. Your review is an excellent example of how a "high end" destination such as Barbados can in fact be done within a modest budget and that Barbados can in fact be an affordable destination for most travellers. As you mentioned, we do try to ensure that we provide all of the information necessary for travellers to be comfortable both with respect to what to expect from the condo as well as all of the features that the local neighbourhood has to offer. Thank you very much for your detailed review and we look forward to a time when we might be able to host you once again in lovely Barbados. Robert and Fay

Excellent budget condo.

  • 4 of 5

The condo is excellent value for a budget holiday. The location is superb, and the added use of the Beach Club and Pool was a real bonus. Rob and Fay are great hosts and do everything to make your stay enjoyable. As does Sarah (the onsite representative) who goes above and beyond ones expectations, just a lovely lady. In our opinion this is the best area in Barbados. We will be booking for 2015.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your review that very accurately reflects what our condo has to offer. It was a pleasure to have you stay at the condo and we really appreciate the way you treated the condo as if it was your own. We have now added a charcoal BBQ to the features that we offer (as you had originally asked about) so this will be awaiting your next stay in Sunset Crest. Hope you have a wonderful year and we look forward to being able to have you as guests at the condo once again in the near future. Rob and Fay

The property is located in the best location in Barbados (the West Coast) where the swimming is the safest and the ocean is not as wild and dangerous as the east coast. It is also located in Sunset Crest that is the largest neighbourhood in Holetown (2nd largest town in Barbados). Sunset Crest is also the neighbourhood immediately north of Sandy Lane that is one the most exclusive neighbourhoods in Barbados and has the Sandy Lane golf facility, a world renowned golf course!

The beach immediately near the condo (5 to 7 minute walk) is also the home of a reef that is the main site for snorkelling in the area and hosts numerous varieties of colourful fish and the occasional local turtle. The newly built west coast Boardwalk (completed Dec 2013) also runs from the beach all the way up to Holetown and beyond and has beachside bars and restaurants as well as additional small beaches along the way.
