Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed at Diamond Oasis in February 2011. The apartment is superb with every facility you could think of . The outdoor area and private pool are gorgeous and very peaceful. Desmond and Barbara were wonderful hosts and couldn't do enough to make our holiday perfect in every way. We've booked for next year so hope that's a good recommendation!! If you are lucky enough to stay there,we hope you enjoy it as much as we did.

holiday and wedding

  • 5 of 5

Second year we have stayed here. Last year we got engaged in Barbados and this year we had our wedding in the lovely garden and pagoda which came with the apartment. From start to finish Barbara was fantastic, she took all the worry of a wedding abroad away. A fantastic day was had by us and all our friends who joined us. I would highly recommend this venue for anyone looking for a unique personal wedding. We are booking again for our anniversary next year. Many thanks Barbara.

As good as it looks!

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a lovely 2 week stay in this apartment.

It is exactly as it looks in this photographs. Everything is clean and tidy. Barbara is a lovely person. Very easy to deal with, all emails were answered very promptly, on two occasions she phoned me to reply some queries I had, which was fantastic.

She collected from the airport, and showed us a few things on the way.

We very much enjoyed breakfast in garden each morning, and it was lovely place to relax after a day exploring.

We hired a car for a week, and went all over the island.

When we didn't have the car we had no problem walking to Holetown to either get the bus, or just walk along the beach there.

We took torches for the evening as another reviewer had mentioned they had done this, and I think it's a good idea for after dark.

We used the washing machine and dryer, saving a case full of dirty washing to deal with on or return.

We ate most of our meals out, there are a great selection of restaurants nearby to suit all budgets.

Cafe Carizma, Tides and Spago were particularly good, all of which we went twice.

I wouldn't hesitate to return.

Truly wonderful

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for two weeks with our older teenage children. From booking to leaving Barbra was fantastic, she always responded to my endless emails promptly and was very helpful. Diamond oasis really is a little oasis, it has everything you would need to make your holiday relaxing and easy. The wifi was a godsend for my lovesick teenagers!! Barbra and Desmond were wonderful and was comforting knowing they were close although they never intruded.

We will definitely return when we come back to Barbados.

If you are in any doubts about booking Diamond Oasis, don't be just book and look forward to a lovely holiday.

Truly wonderful

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for two weeks with our teenage children. Barbara and Desmond are wonderful hosts and nothing was too much trouble. It's nice knowing they are there should you need them but they by no way impose. We enjoyed an evening sat outside with them drinking lots of rum. Diamond oasis has everything you need and the WI-FI was a godsend for my two love sick children!! So lovely to have a dishwasher and washing machine, this meant I could go home with a case full of clean clothes.

Thank you Barbra and Desmond for letting us stay at your little oasis....we will return :)

Fantastic holiday apartment

  • 5 of 5

Many thanks to Barbara and Desmond for allowing us to stay in their lovely apartment which was just as described even having pool and beach towels so didn't use our own at all. We had a wonderful holiday dividing our time between the beautiful pool and garden and the beach with a couple of trips thrown in. The apartment is about 10 minutes walk from the shops and beach. There are no pavements on the way down to Holetown so we took torches after dark just to alert drivers to us. We found everyone to be very polite and helpful. There are some nice restaurants in Holetown, Zaccios, Spagos, Ragamuffins, Cafe Carizma and Just Grillin were all good. We had lunch on day a Surfside, the service was very slow but the rum punches were the best we tasted!!

The apartment is very well equipted, lovely to have washing machine and dryer as able to bring home every thing clean.

Highlights of the trips we did - Harrisons Cave, feeding peanuts to monkeys at the Wildlife reserve (trip with Glory Tours) and swimming with turtles (trip with Mark of Sea Spray- find him on the beach next to Surfside).

Great location, great hosts = great holiday!

  • 5 of 5

What can we say, the appartment was spotless with all mod cons. The outside space is indeed an oasis and we spent many a day just chilling by the pool. Barbara and Desmond made our stay very special and helped with any needs or advice. I was lucky enough to spend my 50th there and they made my day very special with great memories. The town/beach is only a 10 min walk, but if you require car hire or taxis then Barbara is more than willing to arrange. This was such a great holiday and we intend to return to Diamond Oasis in the near future. You will not be disappointed !!!!!
