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 Oistins

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.

Comfortable and Convenient

  • 4 of 5

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!

Excellent Value

  • 5 of 5

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!!

  • 5 of 5

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.

17 Day Holiday

  • 5 of 5

My four friends and I stayed in the apartment during crop over time. The apartment had everything that was listed and was all put to great use. The location of the apartment was perfect just a 10 minute walk to the beach, and ZR vans in convenient locations to take us wherever we needed. Arrived to a clean and organized apartment ready to take on our 17 day vacation. We never really needed anything from the property manager as we've been to Barbados multiple times but when we needed anything or had any questions he was available to help us, very kind property manager.

Did many activities that we would recommend for young adults and teens like crop over events such as fore day morning and grand kadooment, surfing, jet skiing, snorkelling, swimming with turtles, the jammin' catamaran cruise, oistins fish fry, st. lawrence gap for night life etc. It was an overall great vacation can't wait to return to Barbados.

Great place to stay

  • 4 of 5

We were very pleased with the apartment. It was very clean and had all the amenities that we needed. We had excellent support from Andrew the property manager and the neighbours were very friendly and helpful.

We walked to the beach each day and if we needed a bus it was easy to get to them. We tried several local restaurants which were very good and used the local grocery store for all our home cooking needs.

Would highly recommend.
