Property description

Comfortable apartment in beautifully kept tropical gardens just steps from the white coral sands, crystal blue waters and palm trees of Discovery Bay. The apartment is bright and airy with colourful fabrics, hardwood and cane furniture, and fans providing a cooling breeze. There is a very well equipped kitchen so you can rustle up anything from freshly caught tuna to a rum punch for sun downers. Enjoy watching humming birds feeding among the hibiscus and monkeys scampering up trees as you relax on the balcony. A wide range of bars and restaurants, an excellent supermarket and duty free shopping are all just a short walk away in Holetown. If you need to keep in touch there is free wireless broadband access for your laptop.


Eating and Drinking: Zacchios Restaurant is a favourite 5 minutes stroll away with water side eating at sensible prices. Nearby Inn on the Beach has a great value buffet lunch and lovely setting. Surfside Bar & Restaurant has a great Happy Hour, simple beach menu and TV screens for sports lovers. Coxies and Groots are popular bars a short walk North and Lexy Piano Bar enlivens the town. Holetown's First and Second Streets offer a mix including Mediterranean, Bajan, South Indian, Italian and Asian restaurants. For upmarket dining Tides and The Mews deserve their reputations. Further afield The Fish Pot, North of Speightstown is worth the bus ride - as is Cariba to the South. To eat like the locals try the roadside vans - or the fish frys at Oistins and Half Moon Fort. Patisserie Flint can ease you into another laid back day with a latte and delicious banana bread. If you just want to sit on a beach with a rum punch Harry our gardener has a family recipe and will gladly mix you a bottle of his finest.

Beaches around the island: Discovery Bay and Settlers beaches are ideal for swimming with gently shelving sand, jet ski free areas marked by buoys & floating platforms for diving or sunbathing. If you want to chill in the shade with a good book they are fringed with Coconut Palms & Casuarina trees & Bougainvillea adding a splash of colour. Water skiing and other aqua sports are available on the beach - or you can book ahead at Sandpiper's kiosk. Mullins & Gibbs beaches are 4 miles north, Sandy Lane beach 2 miles south. Brighton beach just north of Bridgetown has a glorious expanse of sand + the delightfully laid back Weisers Bar.The South East Coast is a favourite place with all types of surfer. The East Coast is a complete contrast - almost deserted with big Atlantic rollers crashing in rather than the gentle Caribbean Sea. It is rugged and beautiful but beware of the dangerous undertow in many places. Crane Beach is superb - with a great deli en route. Best eating places there: The Cove & The Crane.

Barbados and the Bajans offer so much: Barbados is a very beautiful island, with lots of art, activities, nightlife, music, history, great restaurants. But what makes Barbados special, and the reason so many visitors return year after year, is the Bajans who are warm, charming, always ready with a smile. They make you feel welcome and really at home on this lovely Caribbean Island. - - Do try a half day catamaran cruise up the West coast with lunch, drinks, wreck snorkeling and a swim with turtles. It departs just by Art Studio. - - Barbados has a reputation for having the finest golf in the Caribbean, with championship at Sandy Lane & Royal Westmoreland 5 minutes away and Royal Barbados Golf Club further south. - - Also: Kensington Oval, best known of all West Indian Cricket Grounds - - Rum distillery tour and rum shops - - Wildlife Reserve (north) - - Andromeda Botanical Gardens (east) - - Harrison's cave with impressive stalactites & and stalagmites (centre) - - the largest military garrison in the Caribbean. - - Enjoy.
