Guestbook comments from the manager

We truly enjoyed staying at this place. Great host and perfectly located, close to beaches and different transportation options. Very spacious and clean and nice and quiet surroundings yet not far from where the action is!


December 2013

Nice priced apartment near the gap and close to public transportation. Clean, high speed wireless, flat screen tv and an air-conditioned bedroom.


January 2014

We were very pleased with our holiday on the beautiful island. Excellent location, just a three minute walk to public transport at either end of the island. Near beach, cafes, restaurants, shops, as well as the 15-minute walk to the rave nightlife, at the same time, the place is quiet. Very friendly hosts, special thanks to Audrey, which was always there. Dog owners Hensel was very friendly, loved to walk with us on the beach and was a great friend and a security guard, we will miss him. The House was everything necessary for life, the rooms spacious enough, isolated. Recommend this apartment to stay, excellent value for money.

4 Balcony Rock was spacious, clean and comfortable for our 2 week stay. It is in a convenient location just on a corner off Maxwell Road and is walking distance to Dover Beach and the Gap, quick ZR ride to Oistens, grocery stores and 20 minutes to Bridgetown. It is on a residential street and the neighbours are friendly and welcoming. The kitchen was equipped to make basic meals, bedrooms large, beds comfortable and the a/c in each worked well. For convenience we used a nearby laundry mat for our towels and clothes as laundry access is limited to your assigned day/week and was difficult to access as it was always in use. Note: there is a 5 BBD charge for each load which came as a surprise as not noted on

Audrey had her hands full with visiting family but always made time to check in on a regular basis that we were enjoying our stay. Michael was very responsive to any inquiry during the booking process and was able to arrange a rental car with very short notice from us.

Excellent location, comfortable apartment, wonderful landlord!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at Balcony Rock for 25 nights, it worked great for us, we could walk to the beach and the bus stop was right at the corner which meant we could go pretty much anywhere we wanted for very reasonable price. The landlord/owner, Audrey, is a wonderful person and she did everything to make our stay enjoyable. I would recommend this place for a longer stay if you feel you need to get away from resort living and be able to prepare some meals for yourself.

The property is very clean and well maintained!

  • 4 of 5

We had a very nice time. The beaches are close by and the property is right on the main road for easy travel. It is a bit noisy due to the traffic. Hot water for showers was intermittent. Walking distance to the St. Lawrence Gap which is a beautiful spot to hang out and go for dinner. Property manager was very helpful and friendly. Thank you

lovely central self contained accomadition

  • 4 of 5

Family run, very helpful, central very safe location,1 min to busstop, across the road from Dover beach.

Small charge for washing machine. Everything you for self contained accomadition, Wifi included.

Booked for my mum and her friend for just under a month, but spent days/evenings visiting whilst staying elsewhere, as was so central.

Would defiantly stay here and have recommended to various friends visiting Barbados.

Book you won't be disappointed.

I loved Balcony Rock so much I came back!!

  • 5 of 5

"Balcony Rock is excellent. Audrey is the best hostess you could find, nothing is too much trouble.

I have stayed in Apartment 4 twice before, although on my next trip I will be staying next door in Apartment 5. No doubt I will love it as much as no 4.

The Apartments are well equipped with everything I need including WI FI and cable TV. I also found the bed extremely comfortable.

There is a gas station approximately 5 minutes along the main road where you can find basics but there are also 3 good sized supermarkets a short bus trip along the main road if you need anything more.

The apartments are in a great location with the bus stop less than a minute away and are only $2BBD with the beach approximately a 15 minute walk in the other direction.

I have liaised with Michael for the booking and he is just fabulous and responds to any enquiry very quickly and gives great customer service.

I look forward to staying at Balcony Rock again in the future if they will have me!

I am unable to fault the service I have received from either Audrey or Michael and would highly recommend them."

Great relaxing stay

  • 4 of 5

We booked Balcony rock apartments and stayed in apartment no4

We found the apartment to be spotlessly clean and everything we needed for a great 3 weeks holliday we shall be going back again as we had such a good holliday. Both bedrooms have aircon so cool at night and great value for money.

Audery & Richard are the oweners and mike does all the bookings and nothing is too much trouble always willing to help if needed its so easy to get around as bus stops at the end of the road its about a 5 minute walk to Dover beach which is the nearest one to walk but with the bus stopping outside for 2bds you can get to any beach.Once again thanks for a great holliday we will be back SOON.

Owner's Response: Mike and Hazel are very easy going and flexible. They kindly agreed to book one night in the adjoining apartment as their preferred one was booked for the first day of their planned holiday. They got on very well with Audrey and Richard and took good care of the property, so I will be offering them the best possible deal for their next visit

Special interest holidays:

Various water sports are available at Dover Beach including jet skiing and surfing. There are also 2 golf courses within 10 minutes drive. Several bars, restaurants and other facilities available in St Lawrence Gap 10-15 minutes walk.


5 minute stroll to Dover Beach, less if you are in a hurry. Dover beach is a large sandy beach. The sea here is also ideal for swimming as it is calm and you can wade out for ages with the water only coming up to your waist. All the facilities you need are at the seafront with numerous restaurants, supermarkets, banks and shops. I would suggest you try one of the seafront restaurants or simply relax in a deck chair under a beach umbrella and enjoy a cool drink and the sea breeze.


10 -15 minutes drive from the airport.


5 minutes walk to Dover Beach which has watersports equipment for hire and boats rides to see and swimming with the turtles. The beginning of St Lawrence Gap is 5 minutes walk away with a variety of facilities including cash points, restaurants, bars, clubs, shops and supermarkets. Oistins is about 5 minutes ride on bus. Oistins is famous for its Friday night fish frying and restaurants. Two golf courses within 2 miles.

Further Details:

This is a great location for a vacation with all the facilities you need within easy walking distance, excellent transport links to Bridgetown, Oistins and the South Coast. No car is needed and buses charge a flat rate fees of around 50p for any journey.
