Wonderful beachfront studio

  • 5 of 5

This truly cosy ocean-side studio with amazing views from the terrace has everything needed to make a home away from home: comfortable bedroom with sea view, en suite bathroom and a well-equipped kitchen with fridge stocked with basics to get one started on holiday. Separate entrance, private beach and even a small infinity pool make a comfortable stay, but one can go roaming the island to the capital Bridgetown, nightlife of Holetown, east-coast beaches or mysterious Harrison caves with bus stop just in front of the house. All in all, couldn't have wished a better pad for a tropical paradise island holiday!

Wonderful oceanfront apartment

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in upstairs apartment which was perfect for the two of us. Wonderful view of the sea and beautiful sunsets. We saw sea turtles each morning swimming just off the shore. Stairway leads to an ideal private swimming area in crystal clear ocean water. Snorkeling was good just offshore. Our hosts the property owners were very pleasant and most helpful.
