Welcome to Costa Vista #2! Imagine being able to sun-tan, read a book, sip a cocktail or have a cup of tea with the reflective blue, green and white colors of the nearby ocean complementing the picture.
Perhaps you may prefer a leisurely walk to submerge yourself in the calm blue waters of the Caribbean Sea to swim or dive. Spectacular views of the Caribbean Sea from all rooms and all three levels of this fantastic Townhouse including a 180 degree view from the roof terrace!
Located within a short distance of the West Coast beach, supermarket, restaurants and duty free shopping; Costa Vista offers affordable holiday luxury on the Gold Coast of Barbados. This spacious townhouse is located within a new up market development of 7 townhomes, and affords comfortable living with all equipment and utilities included.

About Neil Jones
Hello, My name is Neil and my lovely wife is Sonya. We were both born in Guyana which is closely tied to the British Caribbean in culture and economic activities. Today we live in Sterling, Virginia but have not forgotten our Caribbean roots. Enjoying our friends in Barbados, golf and a bit of peace and quiet with a cold beer and a good book is truly a gift from GOD. Oh yeah ... How can I forget the fantastic Caribbean cuisine and ... did I mention the Rum!
Neil Jones purchased this Townhome in 2006
Why Neil Jones chose Prospect
The Caribbean is by definition, filled with fantastic beaches and scenery. We choose to purchase a vacation home in Barbados primarily because of the beautiful people, the golf and the reliable infrastructure which allows us to relax and still get some work done if necessary via the internet.
What makes this Townhome unique
Relaxing at night on the rooftop in the still of the night and staring up at the night sky is special. With at least a 90 degree view of the Caribbean sea from almost every room at three levels is simply special. A visit every now and then from the indigenous green monkeys makes the beer taste even better.

A wonderful eight days in Barbados to celebrate my wife’s 60th birthday with family and friends. Costa Vista # 2 was just perfect. Everything was excellent, nothing at all to complain about. Staff was very good and receptive to us. Our visiting friends from U.S. were very impressed. The morning and evening views of the Caribbean Sea are awesome. Don’t hesitate to book this place, you will not be sorry. Cammie.
Thanks Cammie for the kind words! We enjoyed having you! Watching the sun set over the Caribbean sea with a cold beverage in your hand on the rooftop deck never gets old! I also spend countless nights star-gazing! Again Sonya and I want to thank you and your family for making Costa Vista #2 your home away from home.
This is our second stay in Neil and Sonya's lovely condo. The condo is clean, comfortable and fairly well stocked. A few lights and the toaster were not working but everything else was fine. We made breakfast and dinner in the condo every day. It was great to have a washer and dryer, although we usually hung our clothes on the line to dry. The air conditioning was used in the evenings. The condo is in a friendly, residential neighborhood and is a short walk ( downhill) to Fitts Beach and to Jordans supermarket. We explored the island with our rental car but spent lots of time at the condo either in the pool or on the balcony- the views are fantastic. There are a lot of stairs both outside and inside the condo. Several mornings we were treated to watching the visiting monkeys in the tress. We appreciated the free long distance calling to Canada. We have stayed at numerous VRBO accommodations in North America and the Caribbean and would certainly consider returning to Costa Vista.
Good base for a holiday
We booked this rental house for 8 people and it accomodated us all well, so we didn't feel cramped or on top of each other.
The house is a set of 7 tearraced houses, with the manager to the property living at number one.
The house is set on four floors, with 2 bedrooms and a bathroom in the basement, another 2 bedrooms, both with small balconies and a bathroom on the ground floor. There was then an open plan kitchen and living room on the next level with a small balcony and finally a roof terrace which had the washing lines one side and some sun chairs the other side.
The stairs are open plan format which were not a problem for us but i would not recommend it for the less able or children under five due to safety issues.
We used the air con in the bedrooms at night and just the ceiling fans in the living room during the day. Being short i found it hard to open the kitchen window to get a through breeze and had to climb onto the work surface to do this as the window handle is broken to slide the window open, not a problem for me but not good for the less able. the alternative would be to use the air con, so not an issue.
There is a very steep drive and as we had a large car didn't feel safe driving to the top as the car was starting to tip. The manager was brilliant and offered us another parking space lower down.
The kitchen was well equipped electrically, but we had to ask for some extra bowls as there were only 3 on our arrival. Bowls were provided instantly from the managers own kitchen.
Wifi was good for a rental property, good connection if close to the box.
Pool is shared with 6 other houses but we were the only ones in it most of the time, monkeys liked to watch us some days, which my daughter thought was funny.
Pool, house and the gardens are well maintained.
Bathroom towels and beach towels are provided.
The hot water ran out if we all had showers at the same time , so we had to use the back up water a few times. Washing machine is good but again you need the hot water from the solar panels so hard to find the right time to use it if you go out for the day. Didn't use the tumble drier as we put all our washing on the roof to dry.
We had an amazing holiday here and loved watching the cruise liners from the roof terrace, especially at night.
We love Barbados and used to live here and a holiday in this house didn't dissappoint.
Manager was great and the maid came in twice during a 2 week stay.
Beautiful Barbados home in perfect location
Costa Vista 2 is a beautiful slice of paradise! The home is located in a great spot: a short walk to the supermarket, beach access, a quick drive to Bridgetown, and with an amazing view.
We were a bit disappointed that the bathroom on the main floor was not working. It made it necessary to travel all the way downstairs to the bedroom to use the facilities. We were made aware of this upon check-in, but we thought it was going to be repaired during our stay.
Being that was our only complaint, we would highly recommend Costa Vista 2 to any and all. For starters, working with Neil was an entirely pleasurable experience!! He is so outgoing and friendly, and prompt with answers for all questions during the booking process as well as the time leading up to vacation. The home itself is beautiful inside and out. Like I mentioned above, the location could not be better! Everything you need is a very short distance away. It is well apportioned and the pool area is the perfect size.
We thoroughly enjoyed our Christmas and New Years vacation in Barbados thanks to Neil and his beautiful home, Costa Vista 2!!! If you don't try it you are missing out!
Fantastic Stay at Costa Vista
My first visit to Barbados was amazing! I would highly recommend Costa Vista #2. The well appointed house had all the amenities you could possibly need. I loved the swimming pool!
You can't ask for a better view of the ocean than from the rooftop balcony. The location is so convenient as well. Five minute walk to the bus line, grocery store and Fitts Village beach, which is a very quiet and relaxing beach, equipped with beach chairs and umbrellas for a small fee.
The owners, Neil and Sonya, were so accommodating and were always readily available to answer any questions.
Definitely consider Costa Vista #2 for your next stay in beautiful Barbados!
Beautiful, spacious villa with fabulous views
My wife and I had a fantastic, relaxing month at Costa Vista #2 back in February-March 2016. The villa is beautiful and in great condition. It is comfortable and has a great view of the west coast of Barbados and of the Caribbean.
The beach is a 5-10 minute walk away (with a good bit of exercise coming back up the hill afterwards). The main road with bus connections to the towns and elsewhere is only a 5 minute walk away. The roof terrace offers a great place to sunbathe or watch the sunset over the Caribbean, and the balcony is a fabulous place for breakfast and to watch the monkeys and birds. Ms Evelyn was there to greet us and make us feel welcome, and Ms Annice came regularly to keep the place spotless. Neil (the owner) was very quick to respond to any queries we had over the month by text/e-mail.
There are plenty of great restaurants within a bus ride, plus Jordans supermarket down the hill if you want to cook for yourself. Try Wendy's neighbourhood bar for great (and cheap) local cuisine - it's up Risk Road which is about 15 minutes' walk away - or a short drive.
All in all, we can't recommend Costa Vista #2 highly enough. We would return now if we could and definitely aim to get back there sometime in the not too distant future.
Other Activities: shopping, boating
