Great accommodation in Barbados!
The 3 bedroom apartment on the top floor is very nice, clean and well appointed. The full service kitchen is an added plus. It was perfect to sleep 6 of our twenty-something kids on a family vacation in Barbados!
Very enjoyable stay at Mermaid Apartments!
I was set to stay at the Mermaid Apartments from 6/7-11/2017. Because of flight delays, I didn't get there until the 8th. I have to say that I wish I could get my day back to have one more day there!
The Mermaid Apartments was all that I needed while I was there. My stay was on the full top level. I rented one room, and I had the rest of the apartment to myself. There were no other renters of the other two rooms that were available. Before I got there, I compiled a grocery shopping list and the housekeeper went shopping for me, which saved a ton of time and energy, and I was able to cook breakfast and lunch while I was there. I had everything I needed. ANNNND, NO BUGS!! There is no air conditioning in the apartment, but there are fans. At night, I was able to sleep with the windows up and without getting eaten upper harrassed by bugs. Lynn (I believe is one of the managers) is the sweetest and most helpful person! She made sure I had everything and she came to check on me my first morning there. I went to a wedding at The Crane Resort, and it was a hop, skip, and jump to get there. I walked there during the day in no time; maybe 15-17 min walk?? I didn't walk there in my wedding guest attire, though. It was too hot for that! I could also walk to the private Crane Beach which is less than a 10 minute walk. Beaches are my favorite, and I t was wonderful.
Now, there wasn't anything that was a complete turn off, but I will say to be careful if you go out and you leave the windows up while you're gone. I was there during the rainy season, and that rain is unforgiving! I went out for a run in the morning and left the windows up, thinking I would be alright. Well, I got caught in the rain (which felt amazing, lol) but when I came back to the apartment, it had rained all inside! That was my bad, but just a warning to be careful with that, or you'll have a mess on your hands to clean up.
I think that's it! It's very spacious, comfortable, and I felt like I was at home. Try it out and see how you like it!
Wonderful views in a tranquil setting !
If you are looking for spacious and comfortable accommodations in a quiet and scenic neighbourhood this is the place for you. We have just returned from a two week stay at this property and enjoyed it very much. It is well equipped and its proximity to the Crane resort is a plus for us for dining on occasion as well as swimming at the beach. We walked or ran in the friendly neighbourhood every day meeting nice folks along the way who shared many things of local interest. The bus stop is on the corner for trips further afield and car rental is available too should you want to tour the island. What a pleasure to be picked up on arrival at the airport and transported to Mermaid apartment where all our groceries were already in the cupboard and the fridge ! The highlight of our stay was two Bajan dinners prepared especially for us by Shelley our housekeeper ! She is a pro! A big thank you to the Mermaid Team who made this all possible.
Delighted to hear you had a great time at Mermaid Apartments, Margaret. We look forward to having you as a guest again.
Loved Mermaid Apartment!!
I travelled to Barbados this January/2016 and had a great experience. Loved the mermaid apartment. Although we did not eat in often, it had everything needed to do so. The only thing missing was a BBQ :)
I would definitely stay here again and recommend staying here.
Wondeful stay at Mermaid Apartments at the end of 2015
We had a wonderful stay at Mermaid Apartments at the end of 2015. The apartment was spacious and had everything we needed for our week long stay including a laundry machine, all kitchen appliances (dishwasher, stove, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, fridge with ice maker), satellite TV with plenty of channels, wifi internet, phone service, two floor fans, etc. The phone service (see tips below) and internet was reliable and fast enough for normal activity. The location is a two minute drive from Crane Beach, which was our favorite beach on the island. Also, Ginger bay was just a short walk away and was almost always secluded, though we did not venture far into the water there due to the currents. A car is definitely needed in order to explore the island. Bridgetown and Holetown on the West end of the island are about 30-35 minutes away by car and St Lawrence Gap was about 20-25 minutes away.
Maggie, the owner, was very helpful and answered all of our questions promptly and in detail. Shelley the housekeeper, was at the apartment when we arrived and showed us around. Lynn, the apartment manager, stopped by to check up on us and gave us many tips on places to visit and eat. She was extremely friendly and helpful and delight to speak with.
The only issue we had was the bedrooms got quite hot at night when the windows were down, which we had to do for three nights due to intermittent heavy rains. The winds would make the rain blow into the apartment if the east side windows are kept open.
A few tips:
- When making local calls on the house phone, be sure not to enter the 246 area code. If you do include this area code, or an international area code, the phone service will disconnect for a few minutes. Also, it seems the internet connection cuts out for a brief moment when phone calls are made.
- The apartment has a cooler that can be used. It does not have portable beach chairs/umbrella (these can be rented at the more popular beaches for 15-20 USD per pair)
- Make reservations at restaurants ahead of time (especially on weekends and holidays) - Many restaurants had very long (60-90 min) wait times for walk-ins, despite having many tables open (they may have fixed seating times).
- If renting a car, rent a gps or bring one and load BajanNav maps onto it. This made driving and navigation significantly easier.
Overall, we had an excellent stay at Mermaid apartments and would highly recommend it.
