An absolute gem on the west coast

  • 5 of 5

Alverton Studio is a perfect choice for you who want to be surrounded by locals and right by the beach!

Location could not be more convenient; Jordan's Supermarket across the road, bus stops to both directions right outside your door, direct access to the beach right from your own garden and Leo's beach bar (Il Tempio) just few steps away!

The Studio itself is bright, clean, spacious and very comfortable having everything you need to enjoy your time on the island (more than enough towels, even beach towels - so important on a beach holiday).

Shirley brings additional sun to your days with her ever positive attitude, local knowledge and helping nature:)

We really enjoyed our stay, loved getting to know our neighbors and will warmly recommend to others and hopefully be able to visit again.

Thank you Michael, Elaine and Shirley for a wonderful stay!

The Best Choice I Have Ever Made

  • 5 of 5

The 60+ Club

Having saved up the pennies for a few years to celebrate my 60th birthday, I decided to take the family away for a good holiday, rather than spend it all on a night of boozing and dancing.

I had wanted to go to Barbados for some years and looked for a place that we could call our own. We selected Alverton Villas as we wanted somewhere close to the beach. Well, if you got any closer you would be on a boat! It is steps away from the sea and the beach is perfect. I cannot recommend this collection of villas highly enough to anyone looking for a perfect vacation getaway.

We rented all the villas for a month and it was one of the best decisions I have ever made. They were all spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Elaine and Shirley looked after us so well they almost ended up with squatters. Shirley even cooked for us a few times while we were there, for a very reasonable agreed fee, to save us having to do it ourselves. Real Barbadian food!

We often went swimming with the turtles that tend to frequent the sea outside the villas and with the crystal clear waters it was a real experience.

We really did not want to leave and with any luck the wife and I will be going back next year.

Great stay in Fitts Village

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Alverton Studio in Fitts Village. The beach was wonderful and having the reef so close was pretty good for snorkeling. The road noise was a little bothersome but the positives far out weighs the negatives. Elaine, Shirley and Shan were very nice and helpful. The Italian restaurant next door was very handy and had great food. I would return to this rental.

our second honeymoon

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time. Having read the review from pa in pensylvania we felt the need to respond. Alverton studio was on the beach, which we can confirm was completely lacking in any stones? PA is either stark staring mad or is mixing up destinations. Shirley the maid was lovely and the accomodation was cleaned daily. She was also very helpful in helping us to enjoy this fantastic island. From the moment we arrived to the moment we reluctantly boarded the plane home we felt spoilt rotten. The owner, a lovely woman called Elaine met us at the property and handed us the keys to a hire car saving us the need to hire one ourselves. The climate, accomodation, service, locals, sunrises and sunsets were all truly excellent..We'll be there again next year and happily reccomend it to our friends and anyone looking for a dream holiday. My question to PA from pensylvania is are you sure you were not in brighton ( you know the one in UK, England, great britain, western europe?) as I know they have a stoney beach..

Magic in St James

  • 4 of 5

What a magical place to stay in Barbados!

It was just perfect, every need was catered for and all amenities was readily on hand.

It was just as Michaael had described and the pictures hinted at.

The porperty was clean and cleaned regurarly during my stay.

Jordan's supermarket a stones throw away, so handy to stock up the fridge. Nothing is too far away from Alverton.

The bar Il Tempo just a 'hop skip' away did the most divine pina colada's!

I will be going back and soon.

Thanks Elaine & Shirley

Wish we had gone somewhere else

  • 2 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed at Alverton Studio last year. While close to transportation, the beach, and the supermarket, it was not what we had in mind.

The beach was steep and rocky (too many rocks to go into the water actually, the waves would thrust them at your legs and scrape you) and crawling with creepy sand bugs at night. The bus stop was SO close that it was literally right outside the door so for 18 hours a day we constantly heard the bus horns, which play MUSIC. The supermarket was limited in items I guess since most food is imported, and contained a lot of processed junk food.

The actual studio itself seemed clean and charming, however there were mega island sized COCKROACHES in the kitchen, as well as ants.

I found the cleaning staff to have no respect for your space or privacy, and they don't do dishes.

The studio faces the road, as I mentioned before, and you have to walk around the building to access the shared courtyard. The other 2 buildings were being rented by some other people, and they would take up all the chairs and tables. Since we came from the other side of the building and were quite outnumbered, we felt awkward when attempting to share the space with them.

We just did not have a very good time here (and I've been to many other countries), and were relieved to arrive back home.

Car: not necessary

Alverton Apartments are situated on a white sandy beach in Fitts Village, St James and are very well situated for all local amenities. For anyone not wishing to hire a car, local transport is very frequent and inexpensive. Watersports operate all along the coastline and can easily be arranged. There is a supermarket one minute from the apartments in a complex which also has a doctors surgery and pharmacy if needed. Holetown is situated 2 miles north of Alverton and this very vibrant pretty town has many popular restaurants and good shopping facilities. The town has a very long history being the site where the first settlers landed and the town has grown over the years to be a very popular destination for tourists and locals alike. Bridgetown is 3 miles south of Alverton and has a large number of shopping areas and is worth the visit just to browse and soak in the history of this very old Caribbean city. Speightstown, a charming old Bajan town, is 7 miles north of Alverton.
