My Name is Alan Burke,I am a former Professional Surfer traveling the World competing from 1985-2005,currently the Chief Surf Instructor of Burkie Surf School located in Long Beach Barbados.
Alan Burke purchased this apartment in 2014
The property is designed by Re-known local architect Peter Burke and built in 2002,however the villa CHEEZ DON BREAD was completely refurbished in August 2014.
Its located on one of the most beautiful beaches in Barbados.
We have been regular VRBO/Home Away users for several years. Cheez Don Bread has now become one of our favourites.
Right from the start, Alan couldn't have been more assisting and accomodating. Reading the reviews and doing some homework we realized that a car would be an asset to our visit. Alan had it set up and arranged ASAP. The location is quiet and peaceful so you can do nothing but relax and enjoy the property and beach, but it's location is convenient to be able to get out and explore the island and it's people. The island is beautiful and safe.
Alan, Sonia and the kids Jacob and Jodie couldn't have been better hosts ( Josh was out surfing the world). They are there, but they are not. If you need something, they are quick with suggestions and assistance otherwise you won't even know they are there.
The apartment is spacious, clean and has everything you need. As mentioned in other posts, having beach towels was a great asset. We were even able to do a small load of laundry which helped out. The kitchen has everything you could require. The BBQ is awesome and had "Bear" to assist.
There is quiet sitting area outside by Jacob's aviary and we enjoyed waking up to all his birds singing in the mornings.
Because of the constant breeze we did not experience any bugs, but it was nice to know there was bug spray and some sunscreen there is needed.
Our only regret was that we did not take Alan and Sonia up on the invitation to go to the polo matches. Won't happen again!!
Can't say enough about our fantastic visit and stay with the Burke family at Cheez Don Bread, or the island.
If you are going to Barbados there is only one place to stay and we found it.
Thank you Alan, Sonia and family.
This apartment was a perfect starting point every morning of our Christmas holiday! The apartment has everything a family needs to cook in (BBQ grill, pots and pans of every size) or have a picnic on the beach. Knowing ahead of time that there would be beach towels on hand was huge when it came to packing as we usually bring them with. The sleeping arrangement worked well for our family of 4 and we had plenty of space to spread out when we needed to. Alan, Sonia and their kids were perfect hosts and very welcoming, always a friendly smile and a little chat. Our teenagers had a blast surfing in the morning with Alan and his son Jake. They all went above and beyond to make sure our stay was special. Sonia even set little Christmas gifts on our doorstep for the kids when they woke up Christmas morning.
The entire island was amazing and we could have stayed for weeks and kept exploring. The people are friendly, the sights are breathtaking and the food is amazing!
If you're visiting Barbados, "Cheez Don Bread" is THE place to stay.
Don't forget to ask Alan why they call it "Cheez Don Bread"
Cheez Don Bread is a perfect location on Barbados to use as a staging point to see the whole Island. Alan & Sonia were perfect hosts. They always pointed us to the different sights. They are great historians of Island culture. My wife and I were able to totally relax. We remarked at how well we slept. Being a Surfer and staying at Cheez Don Bread was a luxury. Alan and his son Josh both Barbados National Champs pointed me in the right direction for surfing. Cheez Don Bread is located on a beautiful beach. Even when it is hot out there is always a cool breeze. Besides surfing my wife and I enjoyed snorkeling sunken wrecks right off a protected beach, standup paddle boarding, sailing a Hobbie Cat. Eating at the Cafe Luna was most enjoyable for a romantic evening. All I can say is you won't be disappointed. The Island people were always helpful when we were lost and needed directions. We always felt safe and secure.
The transfer driver picked my boyfriend, his 83 year mother and myself up at the airport as promised by Alan. The driver was very nice and the drive is only about 10 minutes to the villa. Alan & Sonia were there to greet us upon arrival along with their 2 little dogs. We were given a tour of the villa and the surrounding property. Then we all ventured out to see the beach and the ocean. Long Beach is very pretty but the ocean is a bit rough. We decided after 1 day that we really needed a car. Alan quickly assisted us and a car was delivered the next day before noon. My boyfriend had no problem driving on the "wrong side of the road" as we are from Ohio, USA. We have rented oceanfront properties on the south coast in the past years, more near the GAP & Worthing areas; so this part of the island offers something different. We walked through the neighborhood every morning and we always felt very safe. We did even see the ZR buses passing by, but having a car made it possible to travel to different more swimmable beaches, we visited Enterprise Beach and Carlisle Bay for the 1st time. We traveled just a few miles down to Oistins for fresh fish every of couple of days. There is a barbeque on the property so that is an added plus when renting this villa. Very nice kitchen, very well equipped, nice pots and pans; important for us since we love to cook. We cooked almost all of our meals. We stayed for 14 nights and only ate out for 3 meals. There is a cooler which was great when packing a lunch for a day at the beach. There were plenty of beach towels, clean linens and comfy beds. Beautiful clean shower. Little extras which show that Sonia & Alan really care about their guests-reading books, bug spray, some sun screen, swim shirts for the kids, kid toys, and informational folder. I also want to add that Alan was very quick to reply to all of my emails and was very helpful. It was a pleasure meeting the entire Burke family, they are truly kind Bajans. One of the reason so many of us love the island of Barbados!
Cheez Don Bread is a fantastic apartment located in Christ Church, Barbados. If you are going to enjoy the ocean for kitesurfing or surfing, the location is perfect. The apartment is newly renovated, stylish and spacious. It is a great space for a family or friends travelling together. Long beach is beautiful and it is a short drive to many other hot spots, especially for surfing, and to Enterprise or Miami beach to relax in the sun. The Burke family are lovely and will offer their experience and guidance for making the most of your trip to the island. Hire a car for the most convenient transportation. And, don't forget to book your surf lesson with Alan in advance!
After the initial debacle of finding this lovely location, we found a beautifully kept, lush home with a well appointed apartment. It is literally 50 meters away from the beach which is basically empty most of the time and is nice mornings walk. if you're a Kite Surfer, this is the beach with lot's of room.
If you want to learn how to surf, Alan is your man.
Alan and Sonia were very gracious and helpful in making suggestions as to where to go for our daily outings.
we like to cook our own meals, especially on the barbie. This was one of the few (only) place we could find that had one. With the exception of Friday night fish fry in Oistens, it was off to the fish markets and onto the barbie.
We highly recommend this property.
Alan and Sonia are lovely, genuine folks that make you feel very welcome.
7 mins drive from The airport. Walking distance to YOGA classes. Walking distance to Cricket pavilion and Community center.
