About Nan

We live in Barbados year round and love island living! You will love our comfortable three bedroom cottage and the one bedroom apartment as well. We have furnished the house and apartment to make it cheerful, comfortable and to have everything you would need to make your stay enjoyable and relaxing. We are there to offer advice on tours, restaurants, etc and to assist in any way we can.

It is our promise to you that we will do all that we can to make your time at Green Gates & Little Gates a happy and memorable one!

Nan purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Nan chose Saint Lawrence Gap

We fell in love at first sight with this place and we have carefully and personally restored the apartment using materials such as stone tiles for the floors and wooden ceilings.

The Maxwell area is pleasantly breezy year round and boasts good weather which will allow you to enjoy the outdoor setting. Enjoy a beautiful, romantic sunset, sipping a good Chianti wine, before cooking fresh fish from the nearby Oistins Fish market.

What makes this apartment unique

Deal Gardens is a residential area and is perfectly situated within 2 minutes walk to the nearest beach.

Supermarket, doctor's office, pharmacy, and restaurants etc nearby. Bridgetown - the country's capital - is a car or bus ride away. Fifteen minutes drive from the airport. Airport pick ups and drop-offs can be easily arranged for all our (website hidden) Lawrence gap, a short 10 minute drive away, is teaming with bars, restaurants, nightclubs, street markets and boutique shops.

If you are looking for peace & tranquillity then this is the neighbourhood for you, however all the fun and excitement of the vibrant south coast is within easy reach.

The apartment is:-

• In a safe, quiet neighbourhood

• Moments from the Maxwell Beach

• Handy for the restaurants, clubs and bars of

St. Lawrence Gap

• Easy access to all the tourist attractions the

island has to offer.

Being so close to all bars, restaurants and clubs is one of the many reasons our guests love staying in the Maxwell area.

Excellent stay! Little Gates is the perfect place

  • 5 of 5

Our thanks to Sharon at Little Gates. A lovely cottage that suited our needs perfectly. We delighted in the short distance to the beach, the ease in accessing public transportation, restaurants, bars and a convenience store close by. Sharon, welcomed us with a refrigerator stocked with a few things to get our vacation started. Lovely finger sandwiches, a delicious fruit tray, local beer, water and free range eggs. If we had questions Sharon, was easily available. Our bedroom was great and the bed was soooo comfortable with a/c. A fully stocked kitchen for meal preparation, lovely plates, plates etc. There are so many things that we enjoyed such as a laundry area, patio with lounge chairs for sunbathing, an outside area for dining and a real cute shaded patio to enjoy the beautiful flowers while reading and relaxing. We definitely are going back to Little Gates. I highly recommend Little Gates for a wonderful stay in Barbados. Sharon is a great host thanks again Felecia

My friend and I arrived at Little Gates on 3rd Aug for the closing of Crop Over. Before we arrived, Sharon arranged airport transfers for us at a cost of $25. Once we arrived at the property we were over the moon as not only was the accommodation eexactoy how it looked in the pictures but, it was clean and equipped with all the necessary amenities. They also provide a great wifi connection and a safe for your own safe keeping. We were giving a run down by Mike, our driver, who gave us a few tips that really helped with our getting around the island.

Little Gates is conveniently placed in the middle of Bridgetown, St. Lawrence Gap and Oistins so, you’re never short of places to eat, food to buy for the house.

All in all, we had a lovely stay here and if we were to ever come back again, we’d definitely stay at Little Gates. Thank you for having us.

Absolutely excellent

  • 5 of 5

Having stayed at Little Gates fir nearly two weeks, what an absolute treasure this is on Maxwell Coast Road. Apartment is immaculately clean and has everything imaginable to make it a home from home. Bedroom has fantastic air conditioning unit. The washing machine was found to be invaluable during our stay. The privacy this property afforded is super especially mornings and late afternoons fir breakfast and drinks as the sun goes down making it your own private haven. The hosts of the property are at the end of the phone if any problems arise. Location of Little Gates is excellent could not be better fir access to everything on the island, buses ZR vans two minute walk away . Taxi drivers close by. Eateries and hotels close by, Fort Maxwell for pizzas at reasonable prices. Try the omelette fir breakfast at Bougainvillea's Calabash cafe delucious!! Or dinner at Siam the other restaurant at this property. Check opening times. To sum it up a holiday at Littke Gates leaves you with an immense sense of wellbeing after days of relaxation at this quiet residential location. Looking forward to the next time...

Lovely Place delightful hosts

  • 5 of 5

From booking Little Gates 9 months before arrival to our departure. Sharon and Peter were perfect hosts. They kept in touch by Email/Whatsapp and offered a taxi service and were very open to any questions we had. The accommodation is ideal for a couple or a single traveller. The quality of the furnishing particularly the bed were exceptional for this type of rental. The location is very quiet and benefits from a small garden with table and chairs for outside dining. There are also 2 sun loungers and 2 very comfortable chairs. You do get the occasional Monkey visiting the garden I would imagine more when there are figs on the trees. It's very simple to get buses and ZR mini buses, both within 2 minutes walk. Very good value, the fixed price is 1 Usd for anywhere on the island. The local beach is only a few minutes walk away although better beaches are easily reached by the ZR's. There are a hotels within a few minutes walk with restaurants. Our favourite was the Borgainvillea which has 2 good restaurants. Also close by is a Bar 1 a small bar that had really good live music and very friendly owners. Oistons is definitely worth visiting we walked, which took around 20 minutes each way, the bus would be 5 to 10 minutes. Fridays and Saturdays are the main nights although restaurants are open every night. My advice would be to go there hungry as the portions are huge. St Lawrence gap is around 10 minutes on a bus or 30 minutes walk away. Here there are a wide choice of restaurants and bars for the evenings. Finally a big thank you to Vanessa who cleans the accommodation. She keeps the apartment spotlessly clean and is a huge asset to Sharon and Peter. If you are visiting Barbados contact Sharon about Little gates or if you are a bigger family next door is Green Gates which is immaculate and furnished to a very high standard.

Parfait séjour!

  • 5 of 5

Nous sommes restés 8 jours à l'appartement. Sharon a organisé notre transport de l'aéroport pour 20$ US, ce qui correspond au coût du taxi. La propriété est petite, mais très jolie et très propre! L'accès à une laveuse et à une corde à linge fut très apprécié! Il y a un air climatisé dans la chambre.

Des provisions nous attendaient pour notre grand plaisir! Il y avait du pain, du lait, des œufs frais, du fromage, du jus, de l'eau, des bananes, de la confiture et de la bière.

Nous étions 2 adultes et un enfant de 6 ans. Le petit dormait sur le sofa. La plage la plus près est à moins de 5 min de marche et une plus grande est à moins de 10 min de marche. Le sable est doux et beau et la mer est plutôt calme dans ce coin.

À un coin de rue, il y a du transport en commun. C'est simple et efficace. Il y a un dépanneur tout près. Il est possible de marcher jusqu'à l'épicerie, mais avec la chaleur et les petites jambes, on a préféré le transport en commun (2$ par trajet par personne).

Nos vacances ont été parfaites!
