About the property

Beautifully furnished property, with private plunge pool

Enterprise Court is a new luxury condominium complex of only 6 properties, a short distance (3 mins walk) from the nearest beach (Cotton Bay) and 5-10 minutes from what is probably the best beach on Barbados - the aptly named Paradise Beach (Enterpise Beach or Miami Beach).

'Calypso' is an attractive two-bedroom townhouse furnished to a high standard with the added luxury of a private plunge pool set amongst a beautiful tropical garden. Sleeps 4. This home away from home has a double bedroom (en-suite), a twin-bedded bedroom with an adjacent walk-in shower room and an additional downstairs bathroom. The well-equipped kitchen has fridge/freezer, washing machine, stove, microwave, toaster and other small appliances have been added for your convenience and the cupboards are well stocked with pots, pans, plates and glasses. The spacious living/dining area benefits from comfortable sofas, dining table/chairs, cable TV & CD/MP3 player. Enjoy a relaxing rum punch in the luxury of your own private plunge pool beside the hummingbirds feeding from tropical flowers.

Golfing holidays: Fodor's 'Caribbean 2006' travel guide says of Barbados... 'Golfers can choose from among some of the best championship courses in the Caribbean.'

Sunny weather all year round makes Barbados an ideal location for golf and the perfect vacation spot for golfers and 'would-be' golfers!

The glorious weather conditions are complemented by world-class golf courses and facilities. Most golf clubs offer professional instruction.

Closest to Calypso is the Barbados Golf Club which is located at Durants in Christ Church (1.5 miles from the house). 'The 18 hole golf course features two “Returning Nines” which finish into a expansive and unique triple green that wrap seamlessly around a lake.'

The 6,805 yard par 72 links style golf course features gently rolling hills and wide open fairways.

Other golf courses on the island include the famous Sandy Lane golf course and the Royal Westmoreland.

GREAT stay in Calypso

  • 5 of 5

Calypso is situated at the end of a cul de sac with a gated entrance to 6 other similar properties. It is very quiet and is not overlooked which is great whilst you are sitting in the back garden or having a dip in the refreshing plunge pool. Calypso has everything you need to make your holiday a truly home from home experience. The kitchen is well equipped, the lounge has comfortable chairs /settee and a large TV with a flow satellite which gives you a range of programmes to watch. The bedrooms are a large size, one having an ensuite and there is adequate wardrobe space in both. There is also a safe to keep your valuables. A cleaner comes in twice a week, a pool cleaner comes in once a week and gardeners come on a weekly basis all of which keeps the property clean and well kept. The Property Manager was very helpful and always responsive to our enquiries. There are a range of chairs you can take to the beach, plenty of beach towels and a large cool bag. Calypso is within walking distance of Oistins and the beautiful beaches of Miami and Enterprise Beach with all the facilities but Cotton Beach is just 2 minutes away where you can explore a beautiful beach often on your own. Oistins Fish Fry is a great place to eat on a Friday Evening and Oistins itself has a large outdoor fish market where you can buy your own fish & have it filleted whilst you wait. Calypso is a great place to explore the rest of the island either by local bus or ZR minibus or by hiring a car. We loved our stay here and have re booked for next year. Thoroughly reccomend a stay here ...you won't be disappointed.

Owner's Response: We are delighted you had an enjoyable holiday and had the opportunity to spend some time in the plunge pool. As you know we have planted tropical flowers all around it so that one can sit in the pool enjoying a rum punch whilst watching the Hummingbirds. Look forward to welcoming you again next year!

Excellent Property.

  • 5 of 5

A smart well maintained property. The owners and property manager are very helpful. Enterprise beach is nearby, as is Oistins. We stayed in 2016 and enjoyed it so much we returned this year.

Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Recently we had the pleasure of staying at "Calypso" for two weeks. We absolutely loved the house. It is as described and shown in the advert, clean, well maintained, well equipped and secure. It is within walking distance of our favourite Enterprise Beach and the facilities of Oistins. The owners, Chris and Steve, provide excellent customer service, assisted by Trudy, the property manager. There was also a maid service although we never met as we were out. The house was like a home from home. We loved to have our breakfast sitting in the garden watching the hummingbirds visit the feeder. The nearby restaurant at Little Arches was very good. Enterprise Beach has trees for shelter, there are sun loungers for hire and for refreshments there is "Mr Delicious", the three Michelin Tyre establishment on the beach. A few yards further on there is Oistins with numerous eating places and a supermarket and Bank.

Did we like it enough to go back? Yes, we have already booked for next year!

Beautiful & comfortable, home from home near Miami

  • 5 of 5

We are residents at the Crane resort every Christmas and New Year and have been coming to Barbados for over 16 years. We stay three weeks at The Crane and have recently decided to extend our stay in Barbados by another two weeks every year in January. We wanted to find a second home and Calypso House ticked all the boxes, our very first stay was only a few weeks ago. It was home from home. Chris the owner is always on hand with questions and very accommodating in every way. She has thought of everything you may want or need in Calypso. The accommodation is perfect with two bedrooms and two bathrooms (one en-suite), well equipped kitchen, living room with internet TV/WiFi and a fabulous garden with patio area. The house is very secure with an alarm and security on all doors/windows. It felt like home as soon as we entered. The location is perfect, very quiet and residential. A two minute drive to Miami beach and Oistins is on your doorstep. The views as you leave Enterprise Court are fabulous, the best on the island! We will be staying at Calypso for many years to come...we love this house and the location...don't hesitate to book...!

Everything was just perfect

  • 5 of 5

All,

The house is just perfect. Spotless with everything you need. Take my advice do NOT feed the cats. Otherwise you'll never get rid of them.

Thank you Chris for all you've done for us!!!

Owner's Response: We are glad you fell in love with Calypso and we would always recommend you do not encourage the local family of cats otherwise they will become your new best friends and they could frighten away the many hummingbirds which visit the garden. Don't forget to get in touch when you are ready to book your next visit!

Located on the south coast of Barbados, 'Calypso' offers you an unforgettable vacation! The property is a few minutes walk from the beach and local restaurants. Oistins, a fishing village about 3 minutes by car, is renowned for its Friday night Fish Fry, where you can purchase local fish fried over traditional coal pots. Eat, drink and talk to the locals, listening to calypso music - an event not to be missed! 'Calypso' is a short drive/bus journey from the popular St. Lawrence Gap where some of Barbados' best entertainment, nightclubs and restaurants are based. It is also close to (about 5 minutes by car) supermarkets, banks, mini golf, 18 hole golf course (Barbados Golf Club) and Ocean Park and within reach of many other sightseeing places. For a truly Bajan experience use the local transport (called ZRs) to travel along the south coast - cost only1.50Bds$ (approx 40p).
