Overview

About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)

Rio Santo Residences offers 2 charming, self-catering, fully outfitted 1-bedroom apartments, located in the very popular Worthing area on the South Coast of Barbados. Nestled in a quiet cul de sac, these units undoubtedly provide an ideal retreat from the daily hustle and bustle.

You will be able to sleep two persons in a comfortable air-conditioned bedroom and an additional person on the sofa-bed, if required.

You will also enjoy the convenience of a living area with TV, radio/CD/cassette player; a kitchen fully-outfitted with refrigerator, four-burner stove, microwave oven, toaster, electric kettle, pots and pans, crockery, cutlery, etc., and a washer and dryer. Linens and towels are provided.

When you are not on the beach, you may wish to enjoy the sun’s rays on the large sun deck or relax with a cool local beverage of your choice.

Rio Santo Residences is advantageously located close to the famous St. Lawrence Gap in Barbados, and across the street from a white sandy beach, washed by the crystal clear turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea. Mere yards away is the popular Accra Beach.

Nearby, within walking distance, are supermarkets, banks, medical offices, pharmacy, shops, hotels, restaurants, bars and nightclubs. The area is heavily trafficked, well-lighted and safe for walking.

As the property is virtually on the bus transportation route, a car is not essential but most people elect to have one, especially for sight-seeing and travel to venues outside the immediate vicinity. For those preferring not to drive themselves, taxi service is readily available.

Within ten minutes by car are the Rockley Golf Club, the National Tennis Centre, the Garrison Historic Area (including the headquarters of the Barbados Defense Force and the Garrison Savannah horse racing track), and the Museum and Historical Society. It is about 15 minutes to the capital city Bridgetown and 20 minutes to the Grantley Adams International Airport. UNESCO recently designated Bridgetown and the Garrison Historic Area as a heritage site.

The South Coast of Barbados has great appeal to the visitor. It is vibrant, with great night life and many excellent restaurants. Mojo's is next door and a short walk away is everyone's favourite Champers Restaurant and Wine Bar. The best known area is the popular St. Lawrence Gap. There you will find the After Dark Night Club, the popular Pisces Restaurant, The Ship Inn offering a sports bar, restaurant and nightclub, Josef’s Restaurant, the Bay Bistro, McBride’s, and gaming arcades, among other attractions. Also within easy reach is Oistin’s Town, famous for its fresh fish fries and down-to-earth ambience.

Rio Santo Residences is your home away from home. From there, you can Reach Out And Touch Barbados!

Great location

  • 4 of 5

Perfect spot for getting around the island. Busses, stores, nightlife, restaurants and a gorgeous beach all within a couple of minutes walk. Mr Norris provided us with easy to carry beach chairs which we used at local beach. A few days we traveled to other beaches and rented chairs. We loved having washer and dryer. My only negative is, that although we were right by main road, we had to walk up a dark dead end side street to reach apartment. Outside of property is very well lit though. I just wouldn't suggest this place for single female travelers. Otherwise, it was an excellent value

Good location

  • 4 of 5

The property is in a good location close to shops, grocery stores, shopping, restaurants, and the beach. The only points that we didn't like about the property was that there is not air conditioning throughout the whole apartment but just in the bedroom and when it was on, it would drip water so we had to have buckets underneath it. Also, the shower did not have great pressure. Some nights, the bar closeby would get pretty loud so that made it a bit hard to sleep. The tv and internet were also not the greatest as the tv would skip a lot and the internet wouldn't work a lot of the time. Otherwise, it's a great little place and we enjoyed our time. It's super close to the beach so we were very happy with that!

Owner's Response: I like my guests to report any issues as quickly as possible. Anything can be fixed and I make it a point to address problems promptly. I apologise for the inconvenience caused and regret that I was not informed of these occurrences previously. Had I been aware, Shayna's stay could have been made even more enjoyable.

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 19th trip to Barbados, but our first time to stay here. We've already seen booked it for our next visit in November! This apartment was perfect for us. We loved being in a quiet, residential area and the close proximity to Mojo's was not a problem at all as far as noise from the restaurant is concerned. It was nice having a washer and dryer since we were there for 3 weeks. Being close to the grocery stores was also very convenient.

This apartment building is on a side street that's quiet and one morning we saw a family of monkeys! Call us silly, but we still get excited every time we see them!

Mr. Norris has always been very quick to get back to us with answers to our questions- a very nice man. I'm thinking we've found our new home away from home when we're in Barbados!

Wonderful affordable property, close to south coast beaches and all attractions

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed numerous times (at different times of year) in the 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom apartment. It is located just off the main road in a quiet residential neighbourhood with friendly neighbours. Less than a 5 minute walk away from the apartment are 2 large grocery stores, banks, restaurants, beaches and bus stops that go to the city or towards Oistins, the airport and East Coast. The apartment itself is clean, spacious and has cable, WiFi and a washer/dryer and iron/ironing board which comes in very handy if staying for an extended period of time. It is completely self-catering (large fridge/freezer, dishes, pots, coffee maker, kettle, utensils) and a BBQ as well can be requested from Mr. Norris, the owner. He will do everything possible to make your vacation go smoothly and if you have questions, he will get back to you immediately. I would highly recommend staying at Rio Santos Residences.
