Guestbook comments from the owner
Thank you for letting us stay at your condo, Mistle Cove, in Barbados... It was absolutely beautiful..The view of the Caribbean from the balcony was breath taking. We had a fantastic time in Barbados sightseeing, and trying to see everything we could in the week we were there...The people were very friendly and helpful. Barbados is a beautiful island, and of all the islands I have been to, I would have to say Barbados is the best..We will definitely be making a return visit to Barbados, and hopefully we will be able to stay at your condo..Again, thank you for letting us rent your condo..(California, USA)
We absolutely loved the place. I could sit on that porch forever! The view, the water, the sky, the breeze....absolutely the best.
Our thirty-second trip to Barbados; this was our seventh time at Mistle Cove. Having stopped for many years in hotels on the island, we decided, 3 years ago, to try the self-catering option. What a find was Mistle Cove! Ideally situated
4.8 based on 9 holidaymaker reviews
Great location but
Great location right on the gap everything on hand
we have been to Barbados about 6 times so I know about locations
now the apartment is great value considering it does sleep 6
you do get noise late at night from the gap but we was ok in the master suite but the other bedrooms you could hear it quite clearly it could go on till aprrox 3am
The apartment is spacious lovely views over the sea great balcony but the sun loungers definitely need replacing we would not lie on them looked grotty also the living room settees was also a little grotty did not help they were made of a velour material so people had sat on them in wet costumes and sun lotion they would be better with something with covers that could be washed and replace also the apaetment was just a little tired everywhere and needed a lick of paint and a good clean
Sorry for the negatives but this did not spoil our holiday we did enjoy our stay in the apartment loads of room as we normally book room only hope this helps
A Little Bit of Paradise!
This was my first time in Barbados and certainly not to be my last. The apartment is in a perfect location with fabulous sea views with bars and restaurants just behind, however the noise from the bars certainly did not affect us and added to the atmosphere of the area. Initially the pump on the plunge pool was not working but Jobi addressed this very efficiently and it did not impact on our stay. Jobi is a bit of a gem - very friendly and more than happy to help with any of our numerous enquiries. Nothing felt like too much trouble. Jobi arranged for us to spend a day with 'Big Apple' who took us around the island and visit places off the beaten track that we would not have found ourselves. The apartment itself is a lot larger than appears on the photos and the 6 of us did not feel overcrowded. We were lucky enough to have turtles coming up in the beach nightly to lay their eggs - an experience never to be forgotten. I now need to return later on in the year to witness these hatchlings making their way to the sea.
Spacious with amazing views of the carribean ocean!
The penthouse was exactly what we were looking for to accommodate our family of six. Loved the views from our balcony and master bedroom! The beach front is spectacular! We felt like we had our own private beach. Shopping, restaurants and bars within walking distance. We had a great time!
Lovely Penthouse and really helpful Staff .
We stayed here for a week and have nothing to say but "Wow"
We've stayed many times in The Gap in both hotels and private rentals but this apartment is up with the best . Jobi was there to meet and greet us and the welcome pack was a really nice touch . The cleaning lady was also very pleasant and a pleasure to meet . The balcony plunge pool was an absolute godsend as it was hotter than usual . The penthouse in general is massive and was a a little lost on us as there were only us two but if you want space and lots of it then this is your place . We loved it and we will certainly be in touch to return . I just wish there had been availability for the end of November for Independence for our next trip as we've had to book elsewhere and we've now been spoiled .
Thanks for a great stay . Shane & Jayne .
Fabulous apartment in perfect location
We were all delighted with the penthouse apartment. It is very well equipped with thankfully efficient air conditioning. The location is perfect overlooking a lovely quiet beach but close to the bars and restaurants of St Lawrence Gap - we particularly recommend Beach One next door.
The only negative I can think of is that we only booked it for one week and we so didn't want to leave!
Home from home in a great location
We spent 11 nights in this apartment and enjoyed every minute of our stay. Everything was exactly as described on the Internet and everything ran smoothly from being collected at the airport right through to the end of our holiday. Jobi was waiting for us on our arrival at the apartment and explained everything we needed to know. She also organised car hire for us and was available for any queries we had. The housekeeper was always cheerful and laughing, so happy in her job. The location had everything we needed close by and having explored the rest of the island, we were always glad to come back to our little bit of paradise. Most of our time in the apartment was spent on the patio, enjoying the views and the sound of the sea. We only used the main bedroom, so were not bothered by the music from across the road, although the crashing of the waves at night sometimes warranted the use of earplugs! The starter food pack was a nice touch and as it was my birthday during our stay, the birthday card was a nice surprise. The only complaint I would make is new sun beds required! What we liked most about this apartment was that it felt like home and not just any rental apartment.
From the Owner
“We have owned the property for many years. Barbados is a relatively small Island, approximately 21 miles by 14 and we have explored every Parish. All the Parishes have Saints names, save for Christchurch. Some call Barbados "Little England" because of the close ties between the Countries, particularly cricket, horse racing and polo! Barbados still has many British traits as it appears to have held on to the "Best of British" with its magnificent Police Force, Democracy and Judicial System There is much fun to be had; on the ocean - learn to swim, dive, scuba, surf, windsurf, sail, fish by catamaran or fishing boat. In the air exploring by Helicopter or Island Hopping by Plane. Perfect for a secluded romantic Honeymoon or party with friends as the apartment easily sleeps six.”

The South Coast has small to medium waves - good dive sites and excellent wind and kite surfing conditions. The South West and West excellent for swimming and snorkeling as at the Penthouse and the East Coast for seasoned surfers
Grantley Adams International Airport is approx 15 mins by road to the Apartment. Taxi s to and from the Airport can be arranged on your behalf as can car hire. There are excellent taxi and public transport services around the Island and reasonable prices for car hire if that is preferred. Driving is on the left hand side of the road and the roads are rather bumpy in places
All sight seeing tours and places of interest are within easy reach as the Island is only 21 miles by 14. Island Tours provide an insight to the whole of the Island, with its interesting geology and lush green heart. There are directions and maps at the Penthouse if you prefer to explore alone and, taking the sensible precautions you would at home, the Island is very safe and well policed. You will have a Representative to talk to for any questions you may have.
There are International Banks within walking distance of the Penthouse, which are open usual banking hours and service tills at the Banks. There is a Convenience Store just next door and two Supermarkets to choose from within two miles being Trimart and the Big B. There are numerous bars, restaurants and tourist shops and stalls within walking distance, a barber's shop hairdresser and nail bar close by. Taxis can be hired throughout the day along the Gap and of course telephone orders can be made for fast food delivery - although in Barbados "fast food" is a little more relaxed. There are numerous malls and clothing shops all round the Island and the big International Stores in Bridgetown.

From the Owner
“The Penthouse is wonderful and the view of the Ocean from the Master Bedroom, Balcony (and from the sitting room and kitchen for that matter) is truly breathtaking. To sit on the balcony for breakfast watching the world go by with the little birds coming to inquire is nothing less than paradise. The balcony has its its own plunge pool to cool off or float in the sun. Sunrise and Sunset are magnificent. The Ocean sparkles with different shades and the turtles bob their heads in acknowledgment. The tranquility is wonderful but this is St. Lawrence Gap and should one wish to party there is no end of entertainment in this fun and happy part of Barbados with beautiful restaurants pubs and bars within walking distance of the Penthouse. The very best of both worlds. Honeymoon or party!”
