Lovely condo. Close to everything.

  • 4 of 5

We loved the condo. The most beautiful beach across the street. Patrick was great as he guided us toward everything we could ever need on this island paradise.

Good property

  • 4 of 5

Apartment was nice, clean and well maintained. Has everything you need even had some things that you may have forgotten. I had a great time in Barbados. There is a beach across the street but I didn't use much. I rented a car and went to other local beaches. The pool on property is a bit small but will suffice for a quick dip to cool off. All in all would visit again and stay at the property.

Great value!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed 10 days in June 2016 and found the apartment easily based on Paul's directions and our earlier familiarity with the area. Patrick, the local property manager was there show us the property and all its features. The property is very well equipped with everything needed to enjoy a lovely vacation of this beautiful island.

A short walk across an open lot opposite the property gives you access to a pretty little beach which we had to share with at most two or three other people at a time. The vacant lot had some large trees which provided shade on the beach at almost anytime of the day.

During our stay, the pool and outdoor showers on the property allowed for a cool and refreshing rinse after a salt water swim.

Paul provides excellent information about the island and also the amenities of the immediate area - guests staying here are well advised to follow his recommendations - particularly the Surfer's cafe in Oistins - just opposite the Massy grocery store - good and reasonably priced food in a setting over the water than cannot be surpassed.

The only drawback to the apartment was the lack of air-conditioning in the living area. Both bedrooms are well served with AC units but the main living area is serviced by floor and ceiling fans. The fans keep the air flowing and the balcony cools off nicely in the evening. Beds were extremely comfortable.

All in all, a very good apartment in a very good location along the south coast of Barbados and we can easily recommend this unit for family and friends for its value and amenities.

Thank you Paul and Patrick.

Excellent stay in a great Location

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for a week in February. It was our first visit to Barbados.

Paul was extremely helpful from start to finish. We couldn't have asked for more. The property had everything we could want. Well furnished and very clean. It was also only a 2 minute walk to a secluded and beautiful beach.

Plenty of restaurants and bars nearby.

I will definitely be staying here again.

Great location, very comfortable property, coming back!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this condo, all the comforts of home with warm weather a bonus. Clean, comfortable quiet unit as described, Thanks Paul you were very easy to deal with and kept us well informed and provided good advice. Patrick the contact person in Barbados was exceptional to deal with, very very helpful and seem to have all the answers when we had questions. We really enjoyed the beach that is in the photos, took advantage of the beach chairs, noodles and the mats nearly every day. We were usually the only ones on the beach during the week, Sundays and one holiday there were others having a BBQ or gathering in the parking lot area but no concerns at all. Water was warm, clear and refreshing. We did take advantage of some of the restaurants nearby, Charlies was an "adventure" but food was okay, the Crouton nearby was having issues with most items on the menu not available and this we heard was often a problem. We had a fantastic meal at the Bougainvillea Lanterns by the Sea and took advantage of the Happy hour at their bar from 430-530. Oistens was fun, we went on Friday and Sunday, Pats Place and Mojo's were good. Would recommend purchasing fresh fruits, eggs, baked goods, and veggies at the roadside stands vs the super mart, better quality and prices. If you love snack food be prepared for an $18 Cdn bag of tortilla chips and a $12 can of Pringles, some of the food prices are unbelievable, but we did a lot of cooking of breakfasts at the condo and the occasional supper as well, all the necessary tools are in the condo. We didn't take advantage of the pool on the property much as we basically lived on the beach. Took local bus to Speisetown again an adventure especially when school gets out....bus seats 30 but holds 70. Did a day taxi tour of the whole island, was great about $150USD but well worth the cost.

We really felt safe and comfortable on the property and would definitely recommend ti to anyone as long as you weren't going to be there when we want to go back.....so Shhhhhh, keep this place a secret.

Again thanks Paul (and Patrick) See you next year.

Beaches & Turtles & Horses

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I just spent 12 wonderful, sunny hot days in Barbados. Paul's condo is lovely and convenient. Nice to be a 15 minute walk to the large grocery store in Oistins, as we didn't want to eat every meal out. We walked to the Gap on three occasions to eat. Had dinner at Sharky's (yummy coconut shrimp) and try Bliss Cafe for breakfast or lunch. Excellent waffles and panini sandwiches. Beautiful fresh juices. If you like Mexican, try Cafe Sol in the Gap as well. Pretty view. Of course, if you are there on a Friday, the Fish Fry in Oistins is a must. If you don't like crowds, go on a night other than Friday. We spent a nice morning on the beach in Oistins and had lunch at Surfers Cafe. Sit on the terrace overlooking the beach if you can. Only two tables though. We did most of our swimming at the little beach across the road, which is so convenient. Pick up a roti from the food truck in front Bougainvillea Beach Resort down the road and have lunch on Maxwell Beach. Our of our two highlights was swimming with the turtles. Charles is the best guide and really knows his stuff. Excellent instruction if you've never snorkelled before and he provides the gear, if you don't have any. We probably swam with 25 turtles. Exploring the wrecks was fun too and we got to watch Charles free dive 50 meters!!! He'll arrange a driver to pick you up and drop you off after the tour. Better to call him to arrange a tour. Only takes 8 at a time. http://www.cliffsharker.com/en/

Second highlight was seeing the horses swimming. We had Bertie pick up at 5:45am and drive us into Bridgetown to Carlisle Bay to see the race horses having their morning wash and swim. Such a beautiful sight. You can walk up to the Garrisson Savannah Race Track as well. Just follow a horse and handler after their swim. After seeing the track and a few jockeys out with their horses, we had the breakfast buffet at the Raddisson overlooking the beach. After breakfast, we walked down the beach and rented chairs for the morning. Beautiful beach with crystal clear, calm water. Just perfect for swimming. Before heading back to the condo, we had lunch on the beach at Lobster Alive. Very good! One thing we didn't squeeze in was a Safari Tour to the other side of the island. Wish we had but we are such beach bums!! Drink lots of water!! Thanks again Paul. Will definitely recommend for people like us who are not interested in all inclusive resorts.

Owner's Response: Thanks Ronnie for your excellent review. I'm so happy you and Kevin had a great time in Barbados and a wonderful stay at my condo. Yes, my condo location is so convenient to Oistins, the Gap and of course that beautiful small beach across the road from the condo. I'm so happy you got to enjoy all the great things Barbados has to offer. I'll have to go and see the race horses having their morning wash and swim on Carlisle Bay as you said "such a beautiful sight". And I do enjoy a roti or some other delicious food from Connie's food van and take it to the small beach for lunch. You and Kevin were wonderful guests, it was always nice communicating with you and I would love to host you and Kevin at my condo again in the future. Warm regards, Paul Joseph.
