Comfortable, quiet and scenic

  • 4 of 5

We spent almost a month in this second-floor apartment and can recommend it with only slight reservation. It is comfortable and clean, although obviously a well-used rental. The large patio is wonderful -- we practically lived out there, and especially loved the views of the sunsets and passing boat traffic. The beach is hard to beat: soft clean sand, easy water access and warm, calm water. The only negative is its distance from any restaurants, grocery stores or shops of any kind. It is isolated in a small residential neighborhood within an industrial area: you will need a car or taxi. Walking to the grocery store or bus stop means crossing a busy highway and going uphill several blocks. Aside from this, the property is great.

A gorgeous "hidden gem" - fantastic

  • 1 of 5

This apartment is incredible, the view from the extemely large balcony is worth a "million dollars!".

Stephen is an amazing host and he even picked us up from the airport, took us to the supermarket, helped us with all our food shopping. And even took us back to the airport when we left.

The garden leads straight onto the beach which must be over a mile or so long with beautiful white sands and turquoise sea. And because there is a view of the port one end, it distracts the tourists from coming, just leaving a deserted beach with a few locals !

I highly recommend this apartment.

Feel at Home in Barbados

  • 5 of 5

The Sandbox was the perfect beach front escape for my sister and I. The owner picked us up - Stephen is such a wonderful man. He recommended a taxi driver Rodney who also turned out to be a dependable ride and a fun tour guide. From the house, we enjoyed watching the cruise ships come in/out from our breezy balcony. The sunsets were gorgeous! The sound of the whistling frogs at night was memorable. Wiser's Beach Bar is a few steps away. We rode horses on Brighton Beach. We rode jet skis from Brighton Beach over to Carlisle Bay. We rode the local bus to Mullin's Beach. We cooked in and we ate out. We felt so comfortable.

Bonus: The long term renters downstairs are super nice neighbors. #teamjudy

Beautiful and convenient

  • 5 of 5

We loved being in a quiet neighbourhood. The beach was there for our convenience. Whenever we wanted a swim, we just went down to the back yard. It was a quiet beach. We appreciated that as we do not like those busy European beaches. We could not believe that some days we practically had the beach to ourselves. We spent our afternoons staring at the turquoise waters while sipping rum and Coke. My 88 year old dad got a kick out of watching the cruise ships come and go. Great location from which to tour. One work of advice. It you find yourselves going up the west coast, north of Holetown, there is a bar called Mullins Bay Bar. Nice location but total rip off. You can get better value elsewhere.

Thanks to Stephen for picking us up and dropping us off at the airport. Stephen, you are the best taxi on the island. We hope to return next year.

This place is a bargain...even better than advertised

  • 5 of 5

Sandbox Studio is a great little rental.

My husband I like like to rent homes when we go to the Caribbean and we don't generally go to the same island twice. This makes it hard because we are always on a learning curve. Pictures don't always tell the truth so we are usually pretty skeptical of what the rental situation will be when we get there. We found Sandbox Studio to be nicer than the pictures that they show on VBRO and there were no unpleasant surprises . I say nicer because I don't think that the online pictures do Stephen's yard justice. The studio is actually a separate house from the main home. We found it to have plenty of privacy and quiet. Quiet can be hard to come by in the Caribbean. The owners are helpful and attentive when you need them but gave us our privacy when we didn't. The rental had everything that we needed and everything was well maintained. I had packed a blow dryer, beach towels and an iron just in case but none of it was needed. The house is on a quiet residential beach front street but it is one block from the bus stop and the buses run regularly. You can easily get to Holetown and other tourist locations by bus if you don't want to rent a car. If you do rent a car, the house has enough parking. The beachfront was great for long walks. The locals seemed to enjoy it but it was never crowded. The neighborhood is prosperous. (The house next door rents for $1300 a night) so everyone chips in for a night watchmen to patrol the beach area. The first day in a rental when you arrive with too much cash and you don't know anything about the area can be unsettling but there was a small but pretty intense safe and deadbolt locks and I would feel safe there even if I was staying alone. The studio is all on one level with no stairs necessary when going from the car to the unit. I tell you this because I accidentally rented a place in St. John that had 700 stairs to the beach:)

Location is fantastic if ...

  • 5 of 5

Location is fantastic if you like a quieter holiday away from the crowded tourist beaches, although they are a short drive away if you wish to visit them. The apartment is large and airy and well equipped. Just walk down to the yard, through the gate to the warm Carribean. Good snorkelling about 100 yards offshore. Hosts are super people. We plan to return.
