Worthing apartment description
We invite you to savour the hospitality of Rio Santo Residences, a charming, typically Barbados stone property, designed with striking hardwood balustrades on its patios and verandahs. Nestled in a quiet cul de sac, it is undoubtedly an ideal retreat from the daily hustle and bustle.
We offer a well-appointed traditional three-bedroom house and two adjoining modern one-bedroom apartments, all on a self-catering basis.
In this three-bedroom ground floor house, you will enjoy the convenience of a large patio and wet bar; a living room, cooled by ceiling fan, that seats six comfortably; a separate entertainment area with TV, radio/cassette stereo, DVD and video facilities; a kitchen fully-outfitted with large refrigerator; four-burner stove; microwave oven; toaster; electric kettle; pots and pans; crockery; cutlery, etc., and a laundry room equipped with washer and dryer.
You will be able to sleep six persons in the air-conditioned bedrooms and an additional two persons on the sofa-bed, if required. Two bathrooms complete this very desirable villa.
In each of the one-bedroom apartments, we offer accommodation for two to three persons. Here you will find an open plan layout with flow-through living, dining and kitchen. We feature in the kitchen a small refrigerator; four-burner stove; microwave oven; toaster; electric kettle; pots and pans; crockery; cutlery, etc.
In the air-conditioned bedroom are two twin beds, which may be joined or separated as needed. . Of course, we also have an ample supply of linens.
When you are not on the beach, you may wish to enjoy the sun’s rays on the large sun deck or relax with a cool local beverage of your choice.
Rio Santo Residences is advantageously located close to the famous St. Lawrence Gap in Barbados, and across the street from a white sandy beach, washed by the crystal clear turquoise waters of the Caribbean sea. Mere yards away is the popular Accra Beach.
Nearby, within walking distance, are supermarkets, banks, medical offices, pharmacy, shops, hotels, restaurants, bars and nightclubs. The area is heavily trafficked, well-lighted and safe for walking.
As the property is virtually on the bus transportation route, a car is not essential but most people elect to have one, especially for sight-seeing and travel to venues outside the immediate vicinity. For those preferring not to drive themselves, taxi service is readily available.
Within ten minutes by car are the Rockley Golf Club, the National Tennis Centre, the Garrison Historic Area (including the headquarters of the Barbados Defense Force and the Garrison Savannah horse racing track), and the Museum and Historical Society. It is about 15 minutes to the capital city Bridgetown and 20 minutes to the Grantley Adams International Airport. UNESCO recently designated Bridgetown and the Garrison Historic Area as an international heritage site.
The South Coast of Barbados has great appeal to the visitor. It is vibrant, with great night life and many excellent restaurants. Mojo's is next door and a short walk away is everyone's favourite Champers Restaurant and Wine Bar. The best known area is the popular St. Lawrence Gap. There you will find the After Dark Night Club, the popular Pisces Restaurant, The Ship Inn offering a sports bar, restaurant and nightclub, Josef’s Restaurant, the Bay Bistro, McBride’s, and gaming arcades, among other attractions. Also within easy reach is Oistin’s Town, famous for its fresh fish fries and down-to-earth ambience.
Rio Santo is your home away from home. From there, you can Reach Out And Touch Barbados!

We have been to Barbados three times now and this Villa is certainly the best place we have stayed.!! It is very homely and well equipped. Its position is so central for moving round the island and so close for everything you need such as the beautiful beach across the road, nightlife in the Gap, public transport and supermarkets within two minutes walk. We would not hesitate to return here to either the villa or the studios. Anton was a great host and looked after any problems we had quickly.

Is this a posh high end resort, no. Is this a clean, safe, comfortable villa close to the beach and centrally located, you bet it is! Anton is an extremely nice man that will do his utmost to make your stay as enjoyable as possable. I wish all owners where as nice, attentive and accommodating as Anton. The villa is located within walking distance to 3 grocery stores, several restaurants, shopping, beaches, car rentals, gas station and more. Rest assured that the next time we go to Barbados we'll be staying at villa Santos.

I would highly recommend this true Bajan home with an amazing porch to sit back and enjoy.If you are lucky you see the monkeys on the fence. There could not be a better landlord than Anton. he is one of a kind. Location is perfect close to beaches, supermarket,night life etc. Bus stop is right around the corner. House is always clean and a home away from home. Love this house and the friendly neighbours.

Owner response: We are delighted to have clients like Marge who has been a regular guest for the past four years. A happy customer is all we ask at Rio Santo Residences. And like Marge, many keep returning year after year.

I stayed at the Rio Santos Residences Thanksgiving weekend on a girl's getaway with a good friend. While we rented a car for our stay in Barbados, these apartments are located within walking distance to a number of eating establishments, grocery stores, and only a short bus/cab ride from the Gap (or longer walk for the more adventurous. There is also a nice beach across the street, and a number of other great beaches within 10 min. The owner is very helpful, and was willing to accommodate a number of time and people changes on my part as my friends and I ironed out our plans. The few minor problems we had during our stay were quickly handled after a phone call. I would recommend this place for anyone wanting to be in the heart of the tourist area with the conveniences of home!

Our family of five stayed at Rio Santos for a week in March, and it was ideal for us. The residence is very clean and comfortable, and there's plenty of room. The front verandah is a wonderful bonus for sitting outside and enjoying the surroundings. The location couldn't be more convenient: beaches, transportation, restaurants and a well-stocked grocery store only minutes' walk away. We felt very safe and at home. Mr. Anton is a personable and trustworthy host. Thank you!

Owner response: It has been a most enjoyable winter season for us -- meeting lots of new people from various countries and catering to their needs. We have quite a number of returning guests and bookings are already coming in for winter 2012. Our advice is to book early and avoid disappointment. To all those who spent time with us, we say "thank you" and look forward to welcoming both repeat and new visitors.
This was a perfect location! Our neighbors were awesome and all very friendly. We were in walking distance to a lot of places and easy access to taxi and bus transportation. Took the ZR a lot! We rented a vehicle for part of our stay and there was good parking for it right outside our back door. The apartment was great and exactly what we needed. The apartment was clean and the property was very nice and well maintained. Anton was very awesome to deal with and answered any questions we had. We would definitely stay here again. Thank you for making our vacation so enjoyable!

Owner response: We are pleased that our guests continue to have a positive vacation experience at Rio Santo Residences. Although we are a small outfit, we enjoy catering to the needs of each of our visitors. Each is special to us. Their satisfaction is our satisfaction. After all, we do ask them to "Reach Out And Touch Barbados", so we in turn think the least we can do is to reach out and touch them in some meaningful way too.
Our family stayed here in August of 2010 and were so glad that we did. We had the option of staying at the Accra where the rest of our family was staying for a wedding, however thought we would give a rental a try. Anton was quick to respond to any questions we had via email in a professional and timely fashion. As everyone has pointed out, all amenities are within walking distance, and by far the beaches are amazing. Our kids loved the beaches, and having their own rooms. There are a number of local restaurants, and Anton was great at recommending some fantastic ones. If you're looking for some Canadiana feel be sure to try Bert's. Also, if you are able rent a car and tour the island. There is a car rental place right around the corner, and they were quick and easy to deal with. Thank-you again for everything Anton!

Thank you Anton for the wonderful home. This was my 4th trip down and the first time staying at the house. The house was very clean well maintained and very safe. I would highly reccomend this house to anyone. The grocery store is within walking distance as well as anything you would want to do. I will be calling Anton again for my next trip down. Thanks again

We have recently returned from a wonderful vacation at Rio Santos, as stated before Mr Norris could not have kinder. The 3 bebrooms were great for us and an easy walk to a big grocery store and great beaches. We had the good fortune to a family of 5 monkeys playing almost daily 15ft from the deck and flocks of emerald green parrots, things we have not seen staying at the big resorts. We will return for sure. Many thanks Anton!

We stayed at Rio Santos the first week of February 2010 and greatly enjoyed our stay there. The apartment is very clean, located conveniently to the beach, grocery store and within walking distance to many restaurants. Anton Norris is a pleasure to do business with and we would definitely stay there again the next time we come to Barbados.
