Why Sarah or Simon Ellis chose Lascelles
We bought Art Studio #7 in 2000 on our 3rd trip to Barbados. It is great to walk out the door and be on the beach in less than a minute. The Bajans are the friendliest people we have ever met, fantastic with children and wonderfully laid back.
What makes this Apartment unique
40 yards/metres from the beach. Lovely tropical gardens Holetown on your doorstep. Everything you need! .
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Another wonderful stay at #7
This was our 3rd stay at #7 and we had a wonderful holiday. The location to Holetown couldn’t be better. The apartment is well taken care of by Meschelle and Michael takes such care tending the gardens. We enjoy the sense of community at Art Studios and have met many lovely people. A chat at sundown at the beach is a daily treat.
Looking forward to our next trip
All that you require for the most perfect holiday in an exceptional location - highly recommended
Eleven nights in January represented our first stay in Barbados for circa 20 years so the exceptional assistance and introduction to local services and restaurants provided by the owners even before we left meant we were well prepared to get the most out of our stay. The apartment is as described, the location is perfect being almost on the beach with easy access to quality bars, restaurants, and supermarket, being a five minute walk from Holetown offering fruit and fish by the roadside and a Ralph Lauren and Cartier collection in the Limegrove mall!. Housekeeping services are in attendance throughout the day.It may not be 5 star accommodation but it might just as well be as the studio apartment served as the perfect base to enjoy the beaches of the west coast and remarkable hospitality and character of the Bajan people. We enjoyed some very fine dining and some excellent fish on the beach. It seems Barbados meets one's needs at all levels. The owners do a fine job of providing information and advice on the experiences open to all so there's little point in replication. It's the Caribbean for goodness sake ! Just perfect - not one negative observation (aside from the tree frogs who could do with an early night).
Thank you so much for your lovely feedback and the fact you "get" Barbados! We are glad you enjoyed your stay and look forward to welcoming you back another time.
very neat & tidy, great location
The property was perfect for our week stay. It was close to all amenities and was steps from a beautiful beach. Would recommend this property
Lovely studio apartment, a fabulous holiday
The apartment was exactly as the pictures showed, and the grounds were full of beautiful flowers, trees and shrubs. The best part was the location; a short walk to bars, restaurants, the bank and the grocery store. We went walking every day to pick up a few food items, and have happy hour at Surfside or Zaccios (our favourite on a Thursdsay).
Meschelle kept the apartment very clean. I especially would like to mention how she came twice on her own time to help us with the safe; excellent service with a smile.
Michael kept the grounds beautifully and helped with the umbrellas and chairs.
We had the opportunity to meet Sarah the owner as she was in Barbados. Really enjoyed that she stopped by and we even saw her later at JuJu's.
Highly recommend the apartment for a laid back, relaxed vacation. It is an older apartment complex, but well maintained and in the best location.
We used the beach umbrellas quite a bit with some of the other residents. The wind was a bit hard on them, but Michael said he would have them ship shape when we return.
We have booked out next trip to #7 and can't wait to go back.
We were so happy at art studio and looking forward to returning to this wonderful studio
How beautiful our first time in Barbados , snd it was everything we could have expected.
So close to the beach , we would definitely recommend and can’t wait to come back
Great stay, perfect position.
We had an awesome week in Hole town, the apartment was perfectly placed for the beach and the bars and restaurants at night. The apartment had everything we needed and a trip to the local supermarket provided all the provisions we needed to make what we wanted for lunch each day.
We preferred eating at the restaurants on the beach in the evening and had a perfect walk back along the beach each evening. Having the Limegrove Cinema five minutes walk away was really great, we felt like we were locals by the end of the week.
The apartment is 400 yards North of Holetown on the Platinum Coast - named after its beautiful white coral sand. Settlers Beach is 200 yards North and has Spago, a waterfront Italian restaurant. Folkestone Marine Park lies just beyond with excellent reef snorkeling, a museum, aquarium, picnic tables in the shade and tennis courts. Art Studio sits between the Sandpiper and Discovery Bay hotels which are happy for guests to use their pools and bars. Holetown has more than 20 restaurants, cafes and bars to suit every taste and budget (see 'Eating & Drinking' section below). It also offers banks, taxis, post office and a good range of shops. Catch one of Barbados' famous yellow buses from a stop 100 yards away to visit bustling Bridgetown or head north to laid back Speightstown.
Other Activities: Liming, steel band, piano bar, reef snorkeling, swimming with turtles, glass bottom boat, jet ski, rum shops and distillery, marine parks.
