What an absolutely amazing place to stay, I really don't know where to begin with my review..... perfect location, outstanding amenities, beautiful accommodation, peaceful, quiet, welcoming. Alexis, family and her team should be applauded for their consistent and WOW customer experience. The experience goes above and beyond expectations.
Judy keeps the cottages in ship shape order and is such a lovely warm lady, and Terry the gardener keeps it beautiful and cleans the pool every day. ,
I can not impress how wonderful these cottages are, I love the traditional style and the peace and quiet.
From the warm welcome at the airport to the hugging departure, we enjoyed every exciting minute of our stay at this amazing home away from home! Alexis and family made sure we wanted for nothing! Thank You for helping us to make the 30th anniversary of our honeymoon in Barbados a memorable experience. We will be back!!!
The apartment was exactly what we expected, if not more. I went with my mum (who was born in Barbados but only returned for the first time on this holiday - 46 years later) and baby niece so there was plenty of room. We bought a pop-up travel cot for my niece which was a space-saver instead of taking up valuable luggage weight for a travel cot. We got picked up from the airport, which was one less thing to worry about, especially after travelling with a baby, so it was a pleasant and appreciated touch to the start of the holiday.
There was a mobile phone for our use (which was invaluable for my mum to keep in touch with family members back home), along with other leaflets and a booklet with info that we needed to know about the apartment.
The apartment itself was very clean with lots of utensils and a fridge which made buying only the essentials possible. The sitting room was spacious enough for all of us, and the garden a great extension for relaxation.
Alexis and Julie answered any questions I had, and there was only one minor problem with the toilet, but it got sorted swiftly with no fuss.
It is a bit of a walk to the beach and supermarket, but if you need a bit of exercise (which I welcomed from my usual desk job), then it's a fairly simple walk (with a hill thrown in for good measure).
All in all, I couldn't recommend this apartment enough, and my mum would happily stay here again.
Great job/place Alexis (and Julie)!
Decided to come to Barbados as a change of winter destination - didn't know whether to book a hotel or apartment.....definitely made the right decision! After a few teething troubles at the airport trying to get a taxi who knew where the apartment was we were pleasantly surprised at our warm welcome from Alexis and how lovely the apartment was. The 10 days we spent here were relaxing with all home comforts. I would recommend hiring a car to explore the island and its beautiful beaches. We had a great day out on 'Elegance' catamaran swimming with the turtles and the food was amazing. Friday nights in Oistins are Fish Fry night - good food and good music.
I have no hesitation in recommending the apartments and will definitely visit again :o)
We had the pleasure of spending the whole of january with Michael and Julie and I can honestly say that our stay couldn't have been better. I was met at the airport by Michael who was also kind enough to stop while I got some basic provisions for the weekend. The place itself was impeccably presented and was cleaned and maintained by Judy who visits one day a week. It comprises lounge/kitchen, entrance hall, patio, bedroom and toilet/shower room, with air conditioning in the bedroom. It's about the size of a small one bed apartment. The patio doubles as a dining area. It overlooks Julie's beautiful garden and leads straight out to the pool with beds and chairs. Past the pool is the back fence with views out to the golf course. It really is a lovely spot. Julie and Michael are resident at the property full time and the property is managed by their daughter Alexis whose number is in the courtesy mobile phone. The property itself is in a very quiet cul de sac off a very quiet road in Durants. Unless you just want to sit around the pool, I WOULD recommend a hire car. Enterprise/Miami beach is a walk away but it's up and down a long hill. The supermarket is also here and is the closest place for food shopping.
Can't wait to return and catch up with our new found friends.
This is a wonderful place to relax and enjoy the island of Barbados. Our hosts Julie, Mike, Alexis and Pete were so warm and welcoming. Almond Cottage was clean and comfortable and we quickly felt at home. Alexis arranged a car rental which was delivered to the house. The location was excellent and close to Oistens Fish market and our favorite beach, Enterprise beach!! We really enjoyed our stay and were sad to leave as we were heading back to the bone chilling cold winter of Canada. I miss the sound/serenade of the frogs at night and the wonderful scent of the frangipani tree at night. And the WIFI enabled me to keep up with the CIS football semi-finals, sorry about all the noise on Saturday, Julie and Mike. My nephew's team went on to win the Vanier Cup and I watched from VIP seats covered in SNOW on November 23 in Quebec City. There was really nothing to complain about and I plan to come back in early 2015, possibly for a month or two at your Paradise Lodge property. Happy New Year 2014. I hope to see you soon. Take care, be warm cos we are freezing at - 35-40C here right now!!
Our property is located at the edge of the Barbados Golf Club at Durants, and enjoys lovely views across the golf course. The airport is a short 5 minute drive away. The seaside village of Oistins is a 2 minute drive (20 minute walk) away. This is the home of the famous Oistins Fish Fry every evening. 200 yards along the coast is Enterprise (or Miami) beach- one of the finest beaches on the island- lots of shade, and snack food available every day. There are several wonderful beaches in the vicinity as well. St Lawrence Gap is the centre of all entertainment on the south coast of the island, and is another 3 or 4 minutes away by car. Here you will find a variety of bars, restaurants and nightclubs, and more wonderful beaches. The parish of Christchurch where we are situated has an almost continuous shoreline of magnificent beaches-all accessible with a short car ride. ATM services, banks and supermarkets are all available in Oistins.
