Why Pat chose Green Garden
Coral Haven is close enough to everything on the south coast but situated away from the noise and the hustle n bustle that can impede the relaxed vacation atmosphere. You can relax and enjoy the sun on the private roof deck that overlooks the sea, as CH is on an elevated ridge, after your stroll to the nearby beach.
What makes this Apartment unique
By day the spacious and cooling roof terrace gives panoramic ocean views of the south coast and at night the lights and stars above are absolutely amazing. When there's a full moon that view is gloriously picturesque. Relaxing in the pool with a rum punch is the ideal way to 'chill' at the end of the day. Up there you can also enjoy the view of the planes coasting along with arriving holidaymakers before landing in the distance but with none of the noise from their engines!

Clean and quiet! Comfortable! Peaceful! Love it and done want to leave!
Joan, we love it too!! Thank you for summing it up so well. We look forward to having you back for your third visit at Coral Haven, Pat and Marcia.
Nice place, great neighborhood
Coral Haven is a very nice place to spend a month. This unit is a bright and breezy 2 bedroom apt. We barely used the overhead fans and did not miss air conditioning. The kitchen is just fine for a self catering holiday, with most of the necessary tools and appliances. Breakfast on the balcony every morning was outstanding. The ability to wash clothes at the apt really helps. We rented a car, but the bus stop is about a 4 minute walk and will take you almost anywhere you need to go. Do say hello to the people walking by and hopefully you will meet "Tony the fruit man", and let him talk you into some fresh mangos! All in all, Coral haven was a very good base for a very nice holiday.
We are pleased to hear you had a nice holiday and a comfortable stay at Coral Haven.
It's good to know that other people enjoy staying at our apartment as much as we do. You took excellent care of it during your month's stay which is greatly appreciated, thank you.
We look forward to welcoming you back.
Pat and Marcia
We were met at the airport by a very nice taxi driver named Joseph who took us to the apartment, Marcia was there wating for us she was very nice and took her time to explain everything to us. in the apartment There is everything you would need eg: kettle microwave haire dryer, washing maching. The view from the balcony is to die for. When you first arrive and your hungry you have Chicken Rita opposite (yummy) she also has fish. There are frequent buses into Oisten and to all the beaches. Oisten on a Friday and Saturday night is a must if you like fish, they also cater for veggies.the two weeks went realy quick but I will defiantly return.
To the person that gave a one star must be a very bitter individual you mentioned cockroches this is the West Indies get over it.
Thank you Cleverna for your review. We are always pleased when guests enjoy their stay at Coral Haven especially when they confirm its comforts and amenities. We look forward to accommodating you on your return visit to Barbados. Best wishes, Pat and Marcia
Beautiful Homely Apartment!
My friend and I stayed at Coral Haven before 2 years ago. It was lovely returning back there. We love the surroundings of Coral Haven and it is about an 8 min drive by car to Miami beach. Marcia is on hand should you need anything and prior to our arrival she was very responsive to organizing a hired car for us. The apartment is a great size and the bedrooms are just perfect size. I was surprised at the time of year by the amount of breeze we had in the morning and evening. We enjoy sitting on the balcony in the morning and enjoying the morning breeze. We are just opposite Chicken Rita very popular lady and friendly also. The reason I did not give this apartment the full 5 star is because it misses AC. We did a lot of cooking in the apartment so we found it extremely hot in the evening. I personally found it a lot cooler in the bedrooms than on our previous visit in November, there is a beautiful night time breeze. Marcia leaves some refreshments in the fridge for arrival which is great and also some seasonings in the cupboard. The apartment is very well maintained and so clean I cannot fault Marcia on how well she looks after this apartment. We just love Coral Haven the locals are what makes it extra special they remembered us from our last visit and not one person walks past that apartment without saying Good Morning/Night. I have to stress that this apartment also comes with a rooftop pool perfect after a hectic day at the beach, cool down on the rooftop with another cocktail to finish of the day. If you like the combination of the breeze and the hot sun then the rooftop is a perfect place to spend the day if you feel like staying in. I have to finish on one more note....Pat by far as been the most caring and adaptable person to our needs since finding her apartment on this site, I love speaking to her and I just love Coral Haven. I would love to buy an apartment just like this one!! Huge thank you to Pat & Marcia sending you both big hugs!!!xxxxx
Diane, we were happy to have you back at Coral Haven and we thank you for explaining how we try to help our guests to have an enjoyable holiday.
As you mentioned, we too have found that you get a cooling night time breeze and because you get such lovely breezes at CH we have not installed AC. Electricity charges are pretty high on the island and we would not be able to offer such affordable rental rates (discounted further for returning guests).
We look forward to having you back for your third visit! Best wishes, Pat and Marcia.
A great experience
My wife and I stayed at Coral Haven, Barbados from March 21 to April 20th, 2017 to escape part of our winter here in New Brunswick. We had to change plans we had originally made for that time, so we contacted Pat through Home Away in late February. We got a very quick reply to our inquiries and so we after consideration we made the booking. This was our first time to visit Barbados.
Upon arrival we found the apartment at Coral Haven exactly as it had been advertised. We had made arrangements with Pat to be picked up at the airport by local taxi driver (Joseph) and we were met at the apartment by Marcia. Marcia showed us through the apartment and a general idea of the locale and answered any questions we had.
The apartment was very clean. It was equipped with all the conveniences which enabled us a comfortable stay. If we found we required anything Marcia was just a phone call away.
We really enjoyed the area. The first full day we were there we tried walking to Oistins as several people had mentioned in their reviews. We found it too hot for us and were a bit discouraged. The next day we figured out the bus service and after that had no trouble getting around.
We did go to the little beach down over the hill a number of times but mostly enjoyed one of the many beaches which are just a short bus ride away. We often took the lawn chairs up to the roof and read. We also enjoyed cooling down in the small pools (about the size of a Hot Tub).
The area was very quiet. For most of the time we were there only two other apartments in the building were occupied. We enjoyed watching the hens and roosters which roamed the streets as well as the number of goats which were put out every morning and taken back in the evening. It was a real treat to sit on the deck and get a glimpse of the monkeys which would show up every now and again.
Then of course there is Chicken Rita’s which is across the street which became an instant habit – excellent Chicken and Fries. You may have to wait – but it is well worth it.
Our son joined us for most of a week and while he was there we arranged through Marcia to have Joseph take us on a tour of the Island. We stopped at the Wild Life Park which I would not recommend, then went on to Bathsheba which was beautiful.
Coral Haven was a great place to stay and really made our first trip to Barbados a great experience.

We always try to meet our guests individual needs to ensure their stay with us is an enjoyable one. We look forward to having you back on your next trip to Barbados - a discount is offered to returning guests. Pat and Marcia
Very nice apartment! Quiet neighborhood.
The apartment was very nice. It is located not far from the busy Oistins market, and different stores and restaurants. In addition, there are several beaches around, you choose whether you like waives or calm water. At first, we used public transportation to get to different places (there were vans or buses available), but if we were to get somewhere else other than the main strip, we would have had to figure out other routes, which was hard to do. Vans or buses are assigned to specific routes and can't deviate from their routes unlike taxes. This was inconvenient especially at night when we would have had to walk from the bus stop to the apartment in the dark. Since we wanted to explore the island, and be more flexible, we rented a car. That made our stay more flexible and we spent less time on getting to places instead of exploring more places.
As for the apartment, it was very clean and had everything we needed. Marcia met us upon arrival and was very helpful. We enjoyed Barbados and will come back!
Thank you Anna for this positive review explaining how convenient our apartment is located on the south coast. Yes, you are able to explore the island quicker/easier using a rental vehicle and we do arrange this for our guests. We look forward to welcoming you again on your next visit to Barbados. Pat and Marcia
Coral Haven is located at Landsdown, Enterprise on the lively South Coast. This coast is known for its vibrant nightlife around St Lawrence Gap (The Gap); the weekly Oistins Fish-fry; and for its beautiful beaches - Silver Sands, Miami, Dover, Accra ...
The apartment is near Silver Sands and the popular Miami Beach. However, there's a quiet and secluded beach a few minutes walk along the lanes and the popular Surfer's Bay Beach Bar.
For those interested in surfing Coral Haven is within walking distance of Freights Bay and South Point. The popular and fantastic Miami Beach is approx 3 mins away by car or a 25 mins walk. Beach chairs, umbrellas and body boards are available for rent; drinks/food stalls and restaurants are nearby.
At Oistins you will find bank/ATM, chemist/pharmacy, post office, souvenir shops etc. There is also the supermarket and DVD rental store where you can stock up on what you will need for your self-catering holiday. On Friday nights and the weekend it's the place to be for the outdoor activities of live music performances, karaoke and music; enjoy your grilled fish, rum punch and local beer ...
Bridgetown, the capital of Barbados, is a 'must do' for your duty free shopping and holiday souvenirs. The main street, Broad Street, is lined with department stores including the renowned Cave Shepherd. Behind Cave Shepherd is Swan Street which is a whole street of bargains - small shops and local vendors.
Barbados has an excellent road network and a good, inexpensive public transport system covering virtually the entire island. Take your hired car (we can arrange this for you) or public transport (cost BD$2 / approx 40p per trip) to experience the wonderful sightseeing opportunities and many attractions on the island eg. Harrison's Cave, Mount Gay Rum Tour, Sunbury Plantation House, Limegrove Lifestyle Centre, Atlantis Submarine ...
Use the 'Ins & Outs of Barbados' and the 'Barbados in a Nutshell' together with the visitor's map (copies provided in the apartment) to plan your stay on the island.
Enjoy your holiday!
