About Amie or Andre De Beauville
My husband, Andre is a Barbadian and we met in Barbados in 1993. We married on October 5th, 1996 at beautiful Crane Beach. We relocated to Calgary, Canada in 1998 as I am a Canadian and wanted to be closer to my family. Andre was reluctant to leave his lovely warm country but he has adapted well in Canada. We have two children and our family returns to Barbados two, three and even four times a year to visit our Barbadian family and enjoy the Caribbean sunshine, warmth and tranquil sea!
Amie or Andre De Beauville purchased this Apartment in 2007
Why Amie or Andre De Beauville chose Durants
We purchased this property because Andre wanted to own a 'piece of home' on his wonderful island of Barbados! We chose this building consisting of 4 apartments because it gave us a unique opportunity for an investment along with the advantage of having an home for our family to enjoy. We chose this property located in the golf course area of Durants as it is a very nice and well established neighborhood. We have embraced our very friendly neighbors and love to see them each time we visit.
What makes this Apartment unique
We love this apartment complex for the wonderful tropical breeze it has, therefore we spend a lot of time relaxing outside on the bright yellow veranda. From the veranda we take in the view of the lush banana trees located behind the property.

This was just what we were looking for in Barbados, after deciding to extend our honeymoon from a luxury villa, to be among the locals in a nice apartment in the vibrant area of Oistins, this was just perfect. Everything was within a 20 minute walking distance. The accommodation was clean and in excellent working order; telephone, wi-fi, tv, radio and kitchen! Bathroom facilities with hot water, what a blessing!!! We would like to thank Andre, Andrew and Yvonne for their hospitality and look forward to a return visit. Colleen and Tennis
Amazing Apartment! Stayed here 3 Times
I love this apartment and Have stayed here 3 Times! The location is very quiet and has great neighbors that would spend time with us and hold great conversation.
The walk down the hill is about 15 minutes or you can take a taxi up and down which would cost $10 Barbados so if you aren't big on walking in the heat I would recommend taxi or renting a vehicle. Has everything you need to make you feel like your at home. Internet, TV and A/C in the rooms which I found that you really didn't need if you had it on for a little and then just left the room doors closed when you go back in it would still be cool. Felt like I was still in Toronto!
Andrew is always great and has become accustomed to seeing me back on the island as he knows my bajan family and always reminds me that I'm always welcome back to my second home. Amie & Andre have a great place and it is the only place I stay in when I go to Barbados. Looking forward to my future stay here at this Durants Apartment.
Comfortable and Convenient
We stayed in this apartment for the month of April this year, and really enjoyed the experience. The apartment is clean and open, and the amenities are more than basic. It is located on a relatively quiet street, near one of the main roads leading down the hill to Oistins. We were a 15-minute walk to the Fish Market and Fish Fry, Oistins beach, several fresh fruit and vegetable stands, a supermarket, and other shops and businesses. Getting down to Oistins is an easy walk, but going back up Oistins Hill (a choice of sidewalks - sloping or with 50+ stairs built in) could be difficult for some people. The supermarket features a free shuttle, so we had no trouble, since we could ride the shuttle with larger amounts of groceries. In the other direction, at the top of the hill, we found that we could frequently purchase coconut water, poured directly out of freshly-opened coconuts into 2-litre plastic jugs in front of us - yum!
The main area of the apartment gets lovely breezes blowing through it all the time. We never ran the air conditioning, and only used the standing fan provided during the night, since the bedroom doesn't get as much breeze. The fan is equipped with a remote, so it was very convenient to be able to turn it on and off while still in bed.
The only drawback we found for this rental is that it does not have insect screens on the windows, and does not have a screen door for either of the entrances. My husband is very allergic to some kinds of insect bites, and this was a problem for him. However, when we arrived we asked if it would be possible to have a hook installed in the ceiling of the bedroom for our mosquito net, and it was put in within a day. This made a huge difference for us!
Amie and Andre, the owners, were exceptionally responsive to our questions and suggestions. Tracy and Andrew (property managers) were also quick to help out and to answer any questions we had. Ivan, the maintenance man, was extremely helpful, and very pleasant to talk to. The neighbours were friendly and always greeted us on our daily walks.
I would certainly recommend this apartment for anyone looking to stay in Barbados in a local neighbourhood, and to experience a taste of being Bajan!
Thank you for your nice review. We appreciate the feedback we receive from all of our guests.
We are happy that you and Hubert felt comfortable in the apartment and that you enjoyed the neighbourhood folk and the experience of being Bajan.
Again, thanks for choosing to stay at our Durants apartment. You and Hubert were wonderful guests and it was our pleasure to accommodate you.
We look forward to your return in January 2017.
Amie & Andre
My brother & I rented the apartment in 2014 and liked it so much we booked it again this year. There was an excellent view of the 6th hole of the Barbados Golf & Country Club.
Walking distance to Miami Beach and the downtown, the Fish Fry is the place to be on Friday and Saturday nights. The bars and restaurants are open on the street with music.
The apartment has everything as advertised. The property was clean and well cared for. The property manager, Tracy, took very good care of us, going out of her way to provide excellent customer service.The breeze through the apartment was amazing, we did not feel hot at all. There was lots of parking in the yard, but the rum shops were all within walking distance, as were the grocery stores. The fish market had a huge selection of fresh fish.
I would not hesitate to recommend this property to anyone interested in a great vacation.
Exactly what we wanted!!
This apartment was perfect for us. It had everything we needed! It was very clean, well air conditioned, and cozy. It was a bit of a walk (15 minutes) into the town of Oistins, but it was great to walk to the beach each day and say hi to the same locals. We had gone to beaches all over Barbados and Miani Beach in Oistins was by far the nicest! I highly recommend to anyone who is looking to have a great vacation while being a part of the Bajan culture.
