Communication from the outset was excellent with Alexis, she helped us choose between her different properties, sent us extra photos and arranged our first grocery shop (at our request as we arrived during a 2day public holiday). The directions to the house were spot on and we arrived and settled in smoothly (around 15mins from airport). We used Beepcab as our taxi service, which is like a Bajan Uber - highly recommend.
The flat is represented well by the photos, in fact a little bigger in real life we think, yes perhaps a little worn in a couple of places but it in no effects your experience. It's a beautiful apartment which has all the kitchen elements you require for self-catering, full working oven, microwave, excellent fridge and freezer. We would advise that you bring some basic store cupboard food items with you if you have space in your suitcase and intend to cook in a few times (pasta, rice, salt, pepper those sort of things), Barbados is quite pricey for the essentials and you'll pay 2-6x more than the UK for some groceries.
The pool is wonderful and gives a great view down to the ocean, as it is set within lush gardens some leaves fall down each day but they are easy to collect. You share with the flat above but there is room for everyone.
The nearest beach is a 5min walk away, Welches and Maxwell, both lovely and we swam there most days. Miami is 20min walk away and very calm and swim friendly.
The nearest supermarket is 10min walk away, Massey Stores, you'll get it all here including Banks beers and Rum (cheapest things comparatively to buy BTW!!).
Oistens is a 10-15min walk away and we went down to eat on several occasions, it is open all nights but it is the Friday and Saturday when it gets really busy and all restaurants are open.
St Lawrence Gap a 5min drive away, we caught the little mini-buses that go from the end of the road (5min walk) one every minute or so. It costs 2-Bajan each no matter how far you go, the number 11 goes from Oistens up to Bridgetown and back, just flag, jump in and pay as you get out (press button near roof inside to alight)
if we return to Barbados we would 100% stay here again, everything was so smooth and laid-back.
