  • A secret hideaway

    "This location is ALL about self catering. For those of you who want All inclusive, catered or resort accommodations, this is not for you. As for self catering, it is a funky apt. One of the hippest Rum Shops on the island is across the street; Jack's Bush Bar, The Pile bay fishing market is next door to the villa apts. for fresh caught fish every day but Mondays, and Apt. 9 is 10 feet through a gate to the gardens and 25 feet to one of the most quietist beaches on the Island. Sundays may see a family or 2 of 20 max. But you can always tan on the Villa gardens away from the maddening crowds, and they are few, especially threw the week. It is central to restaurant row to the north and 5 minutes to Bridgetown to the south. Breakfast-lunch is authentic Bajan food at ridiculously low prices at Eve's resto around the corner. If you have concerns about being close to the Electric power plant and the large ships of LNG gas/Diesel that moor 200 yards from the apt. a couple of days threw any given week then this place is not for you. However, the cost, the quality of accommodation and the location to REAL BAJAN life, if you partake of it; the fishing village, is a value that will allow yourself the ability to enjoy the higher end restos without guilt. It is why we rebooked as soon as we got back to Canada."

  • Canucks in Barbados

    "We have only stayed at Bob's apartment one season, but we plan to return every year, if possible. The apartment is nicely located, in a quiet corner of the golf course, well away from any errant golf shots. The aprtment is close to the pool, and the laundry, is clean and cozy, and it is well-stocked with all the utensils, crockery and pots and pans one could wish for. A barbecue, nice deck area, and clean, well-maintained main living areas are the hallmarks of the Morris touch. The owner is friendly, approachable, and provided us with more than we bargained for. We have stayed at Rockley on many previous occasions, but found this unit to be all that we could ask for, and would recommend this location to one and all. It was home away from home."

  • Outstanding property: Affordable, fully self-catering, excellent location

    "We stayed for 1 week at Rio Santos Residences, 1-bedroom/1-bath apartment. The apartment was spacious and comfortable, fully equipped for self-catering with a fridge/freezer, 4-hob burner (no oven), microwave, pots/pans, dishware, cutlery. It was clean and comfortable and secure. It is open-concept with the kitchenette, table/2-chairs, and small living room in one area, a separate large bedroom, and a large bathroom with shower. There is plenty of closet space in the bedroom, as well as a wall safe to store valuables (e.g., passport, ID). The apartment we stayed in is on the upper floor of a 2-apartment unit, which enjoyed wonderful breezes and a sunny roof-top patio (with a somewhat obstructed view of the ocean) reached by a steep ladder/stairs. There is a fan in the main living area and a quiet A/C unit in the bedroom that works quickly and quietly to keep the room cool for sleeping. The apartment is in an excellent location, in a nice residential neighbourhood one block from the main street. A wonderful white sand beach is accessible via a public walkway directly across the main street. A full grocery store is located less than a 5-min walk from the apartment. The much-touted St. Lawrence Gap is within walking distance, as are numerous other restaurants/shops/beaches. Dive and other tour operators out of Bridgetown will do pick-ups from Worthing. The apartment includes a parking space but a car hire is not absolutely necessary unless you plan to tour the full island; everything else you need is within walking distances and/or accessible from the nearby main street by bus. The apartment is in the ideal location for exploring the region - up west are swanky hotels but relatively few walkable amenities; the city of Bridgetown offers little to tourists with respect to places to stay/spend extended time - most hotels/motels/apartments are in this general region for good reason. The apartment is difficult to find on a map but is located right behind "Mojo's" - an open-air pub/restaurant. We were concerned the first night that patrons at Mojo's might keep us awake at night (I'm a light sleeper) but with the bedroom windows closed & the A/C on, this wasn't an issue for us. Because this is apartment-style accommodation for those who might like independence and/or a self-catering option, you should not book this apartment expecting 5-star luxury or perfection. But we loved it and will not hesitate to book again if we are fortunate enough to visit Barbados again."

  • Can't wait to rent again!

    "My husband and I rented this fantastic home for our one week get-away. We love Barbados and have rented other houses previously. We really enjoyed the quiet neighbourhood and were quite pleased with it's close proximity to both Speightstown and to the main highway that runs up the centre of the island. We do recommend renting a vehicle. We cannot say enough nice things about Joyce - the property manager - who welcomed us upon our arrival like we were visiting family! Joyce checked in on us via phone a couple of times during the week to ensure we were doing well and that everything was satisfactory (in fact everything was amazingly great!) and said not to hesitate to contact her should we need anything. The absence of air-conditioning wasn't an issue at all. Ceiling fans, portable fans and screened windows were more than enough to keep things at a comfortable temperature while enabling us to listen to the birds in the morning and whistling frogs in the evening. Making the arrangements and "doing business" with Jacqueline was easy and a pleasure! We had no problems with the Wifi and easily kept in touch with everyone back home. Loved the covered patio/deck and often ate outside, or just sat enjoying an evening beverage. We highly recommend this property and cannot wait to return, next time with the kids in tow!"
