Guestbook comments from the owner

Our stay could not have been nicer! The apartment, was impeccably clean, roomy, with plenty of light and air. The neighborhood was friendly and seemed safe. Welches Beach was a 5-minute walk away. A little shopping center with grocery, bank, etc. less than 10 minutes. Oistins, with its famous fish fry shops, is across from that. Miami Beach is 15 minutes walk. The Surfer's Cafe across from the shopping center was a nice spot for a drink, a coffee or some light bar fare. JoAnne and her family were very gracious hosts. They provided transportation to and from the airport even though our arrival was very late and our departure was very(!) early. When our flight was delayed a day JoAnne refunded one day's rent without me asking. And when we decided to stay an extra day they accommodated us easily. We were able to get around the whole island using the bus system. and there are bus stops just a few blocks from the apartment. The full-size kitchen was so nice to have. We were able to buy local produce and fish at the Oistins market and prepare our own meals twice a day. We saved money and ate healthier than if we had eaten a steady diet of restaurant and take-out. That, and the fact we walked and swam a lot, led to us coming back from vacation slimmer than we left! It was also very nice to have our own washing machine in the apartment. Next time I will pack fewer clothes and just wash them as needed. This was our first trip to Barbados but I expect to be back soon. I will definitely give JoAnne a call when I do!

Lovely fully-equipped family friendly apt near Oistins-ac &wifi
average rating of 4.611111 based on 21 reviews

Good value, airy and spacious, a bit too far out.

  • 4 of 5

Positives - spacious and airy upper floor 2 bedroom en suite apartment, clean and well serviced. Long walk down and up from nearest amenities, car recommended but if fit, walking and taxis could do. Don was extremely helpful even organising a neighbour to take us to the fish fry when we couldn't get a taxi. Lovely a/c in bedrooms.

Negatives - bit too far out for us, solved by car hire for 2 weeks, (£800)

Both bathrooms in need of update, shower mat in main ensuite mouldy, mouldy in second shower cubicle.

Can be noisy on the balcony at night, dogs, crickets etc.,

Overall, good value if car not required. Nearest hotel is the Butterfly beach, food very average, but relatively cheap for Barbados. Nice pool and area, for residents supposedly, but no one bothered us.

Extremely Clean and Vibrant

  • 4 of 5

My Family and I enjoyed staying at the apartment in Oistins. I must say Don was extremely welcoming and friendly (lovley gentleman), he was also present to greet us when we arrived to show us around the apartment and to answer any queries.

Both rooms had air conditioning which we were so happy to have as Barbados was very hot... In addition to this the apartment was very clean and bright and located perfectly, close to the beach and shops.

We would definitely book our stay at the same property when we return.

wonderful as always

  • 5 of 5

Another wonderful 8 weeks in Barbados at Annjenn. As always Don the owner was available and always concerned with our needs. This was out third time staying at Annjenn and as usual it was quiet, clean and met all our basic needs. We stayed with our two kids 15 and 13. Everything is with in walking distance, but we did have a car for part of the time. If you are looking for a simple, safe and comfortable place there is no where else. The ac is great, the wifi a life saver for our kids and the washing machine so helpful. Don the owner is always available and willing to help with all needs. Looking forward to our next stay, can't wait to return. Thank you for everything!

What a wonderful apt and location. My husband and i stayed for two and a half weeks with our two kids 12 an 14. From the beginning joanne was prompt and helpful with all our needs and questions. The apt is clean and the ac works wonderfully. The local phone as our disposal in the apt was also helpful to make call for tours etc. We did have a car, but it is not necessary as there is a shopping center about 10-15 mins walk. Having a washing machine is fantastic, as it helps with packing less clothes. The full kitchen is fully loaded with all you need during your stay. A member of the family is a phone call away to help with your needs or concerns. The housekeeper Merline was also wonderful. This may not be a four star hotel but to us it is better. Comfortable and clean and private. We have been coming to Barbados for the last 5 years and will never stay anywhere else.Thank you Joanne and your family for a wonderful vacation. We can't wait to come again! Anna and family

Awesome people. Great place.

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was absolutely fantastic. Jo-Anne was a great communicator as we were making all the plans and Don was an absolute delight to meet. He took such good care of us, from airport pick up, mini tour to get our bearings, daily check in calls to make sure all was ok, helped making arrangements for private tours, and even arranged an in-house chef for a night. we loved meeting him and we thank him immensely. The apartment itself was in a great neighbourhood. It was very large, clean and bright, filled with everything we needed. It was an incredibly economical way to travel and see Barbados as a single parent with three children. Everything we wanted or needed was in walking distance or an easy bus ride away. We felt at home and enjoyed experiencing Bajan culture. When we return to Barbados we will stay here FOR SURE!
