Bellehaven is THE place to stay on the island
We loved this house so much the first time that we rented it again, and fell in love all over again. The house is spectacular and I really can't say enough positive things about it. Truly, there are no negatives. It's exactly what you want in a vacation home away from home. Don't doubt me, just book the house...you won't be disappointed!
Lovely house in ideal location
First, let me say that while we were staying here, we had several people stop us on the street in front of the house to ask about it. Oistins is a nice town that gives you a feel for what it might be like to live in Barbados while also having amenities for tourists. The house is situated on a very large lot, set back from the street, with a lovely view of the beach from the front porch, living room, and front bedroom. We fell asleep to the sounds of waves crashing every night. It is very comfortable, with good cross-breezes and a/c units in the bedrooms (which we only used for the room where our baby slept, since he sleeps better in a cool room). The furnishings are very tasteful and the house is pleasingly decorated and immaculately maintained. The linens are good quality and there are abundant towels. Everyone we dealt with, from the owner to the rental agent to the cleaning women to the man who met us at the airport, was helpful and polite. As we were leaving, we were told that they were replacing the perfectly adequate refrigerator with a newer one and adding a dishwasher. The location is terrific: just across the street from a beach with medium sized waves, lots of shade, and a good snack shack where you can get a flying fish sandwich and a rum drink, and a short stroll up to a cove where the waves are calmer, perfect for kids. It is an easy walk to the Fish Fry stalls in Oistins, a short walk to a small market, and a slightly longer walk to the Super Centre market. Buses are nearby and plentiful, but you can also rent a well-maintained older car from the owner for a reasonable rate (he even let us drive it to the airport and leave it in the lot when we left). The airport is close by (the low-flying planes are cool to see, but it can be loud intermittently). The island is small, so good for exploring. We saw the west coast and the interior on our outings, as well as Bridgetown and the more touristy towns between Bridgetown and Oistins. We loved our stay, and hope to rent Belle Haven again.
Words can't even begin to describe how charming this home is...
We have been to Barbados several times, but for this trip we needed a house that would double as a "home" since we were spending Christmas/New Years on the island with family & close friends. We chose Bellehaven because of its perfect location...on the beach! We knew it would be a great home, but we had no idea that we would fall in love with it. Everything about the house is wonderful... it's charming, beautifully furnished with antiques, has an outdoor shower, grill, washing machine, and a porch where we spent many evenings eating dinner & enjoying cocktails watching the sun set over the sea.
Enterprise Beach is just across the road so we were able to head to the beach whenever we wanted to...the sand is soft, the water unbelievably turquoise and warm, and there are even tables if you wish to have a picnic. It's a great beach for families with children because it's guarded. There's also a calm lagoon adjacent to it for those who like very calm water.
Oistins is a mere 5 minutes away via car and has everything you need...supermarket, fish market, drug store, etc etc etc.
I highly recommend this house ... in fact, we're booking it again!!!
