Sunny, Peaceful Stay in Ocean City
The apartment is well furnished and has all the amenities needed for an enjoyable stay. It truly was our Home Away from Home and it allowed us to settle quickly into the Bajan Vibe. It is on a quiet street and has a lovely porch where we sat and enjoyed the views of the Atlantic Ocean. The photos in the listing give a very accurate impression of what to expect and everything about the apartment was as promised. The owner, Chris, was very prompt in responding to our questions and confirming our booking.
A car is a necessity and we chose not to drive ourselves, and hired Chris' sister, Izzy, as our chauffeur. This was absolutely the best decision for us since Izzy was not only as a driver, but she was also a tour guide, who carefully planned our an itinerary to suit our needs and interests.
We give our unqualified recommendation to both the apartment and to Izzy for anyone looking to soak up the sun, relax and come home rested and refreshed.
Thank you guys for such a great review and we are all thrilled you had a lovely time. Please come back and see us soon. Chris
Very nice well equipped apt. in quiet neighbourhood.
The apartment is well equipped, and tastefully designed. Very quiet neighbourhood away from all the tourist hustle & bustle. In my opinion car is necessary. Close to many fine restaurants, and secluded beaches. If you are looking for a laid back out of the way place to stay on the island, but still close to many fine establishments, this apt. is very nice option. A+++
The property is on the quiet side of the island, which enabled us to see the real Barbados.
Throughout our stay, Izzy helped us with everything. She took us to Bridgetown to watch the cricket and was always reliable, often arriving 20 mins before our intended departur.e. We decided not to hire a car and used Izzy’s taxi service instead, which was very reasonable, particularly as there were three of us.
The villa was excellent and exactly as described on the HomeAway site. It is possible to walk to nearby shops and restaurants but the roads are not well lit and some people may feel they are too far. However, this did not impact on our trip as Izzy was always available to take us to the tourist spots of Barbados, often waiting to take us home after a few beers.
Chris is excellent at keeping in touch by email and we actually met him at the villa before his return to the snow in England. Overall, an excellent family run property, which gave us the opportunity to experience the beautiful sights of a fantastic island, despite the dismal performance of England on the cricket field!
Thanks guys for the great review. I can only apologise for the bad manners shown by the West Indies cricket team in not giving England a few more runs 😉 Hope to see you back in Barbdos sometime in the future. Thanks for looking after the apartment. Chris.
Beautiful apartment, great views, quiet neighborhood
This is my 2nd time to visit Barbados - both times I have stayed on the East Coast. I love the quiet, low key vibe on this side. Chris' apartment is fantastic! Has everything you need and very nice, updated accommodations! Ricardo was very thorough to explain everything when we arrived. We had a great week and look forward to another booking in the near future!
Since this apartment is on the East Coast, a car is a must. We spent each day at a different beach - mostly on the West Coast. Some of our favorites included:
Pebbles Beach - just south of Browns Beach and away from cruise ship tourists. Park at the Surf Shop, buy a 1-day membership ($20 usd) to use the chairs/umbrella & wifi. There is a restaurant above the shop or you can stop by Cuz's Fish Stand in the parking lot for an amazing fish cutter.
Holetown - park behind the post office and make your way out to the Surfside restaurant. You can rent chairs/umbrella. Surfside has free wifi. The restaurant is a popular gathering place and has a great menu.
Miami Beach - great beach where locals go. Rent chairs/umbrella and enjoy lunch from the permanent food truck. Miami beach has lots of huge trees behind the beach with hammocks to relax in if you want to get out of the sun.
Dover Beach - park at Johnny Cools Bar, rent chairs/umbrella and enjoy lunch at the bar.
Crane Beach - just 5 minutes from the apartment. Absolutely beautiful beach and views! You can eat at The Crane (on the beach or in the restaurants within the resort). Views of the ocean from the resort are amazing!
If you're looking for an adventure, head up the East Coast and visit Bottom Bay, Bath Beach and Bathsheba. Also, Foul Bay is only a few minutes from the apartment. There are no chairs/umbrellas to rent at these locations but they are unique and beautiful.
Thanks, Chris, for letting us stay at your apartment - look forward to returning!
We stayed from 3.3.18 to 3.10.18. Our apartment was lovely. Beautiful kitchen with granite counter
View from our porch overlooked the Atlantic. Sunrises were spectacular. Area was a quiet neighborhood. Restful. We used Izzy as a driver. She was prompt and fun. We enjoyed the beaches on the east coast and the west coast. We had a great experience. Apartment was beautiful.
Relaxing and Quiet Vacation in Ocean City
We spent eight nights in Chris’ Ocean view apartment and had a wonderful time. I booked the apartment last fall and Chris has been more than helpful in answering any questions I had as I was planning our trip. Most of the time he replied within a couple of hours!! The apartment had everything we needed and was very comfortable. There were adequate dishes and pans to cook meals and we ate in the majority of our meals. We enjoyed sitting on the lanai and enjoying the breeze and salt mist from the ocean waves. We had a late night flight in and Ricardo was so kind to meet us at the airport and we followed him to the apartment in our rental car, which was helpful because I’m not certain we would have found our way in the dark. Ricardo was ready to assist with whatever needs we had. He booked us on a sunset catamaran sail as well as a half day snorkel/lunch sail. We enjoyed both of these immensely. The apartment is situated off from all the busy action of the city, but that worked for us as we like things a little more quiet. If you are driving, make sure your Google Maps app is up and running. Driving in Barbados is a challenge with roads and roundabouts going every which way. There were beach chairs that we used when we drove down to nearly Foul Beach and plenty of towels and beach towels. There is a nice supermarket with a liquor store close by. Be sure to try the local Banks beer. We rented our car from Drive-A-Matic and the service was incredible. We had a flat tire and dead battery and they were at the apartment in record speed both times to repair our car. Just a few small items to bring: Salt, Pepper, laundry soap and a couple of dishwasher tablets. I highly recommend Chris’ apartment for your next vacation to beautiful Barbados.
Thank you Pam for taking the time to write a great review and we are so pleased you loved your vacation. I have taken note of the fact that salt, pepper and dish washing tablets were missing and will be addressing this issue with my house keeper as they should have been there. Sorry for any inconvenience caused. Hope you come back to see us soon. All the very best Chris and Ricky.
