It is literally 5 minutes walk from the south coast boardwalk, The Lanterns Shopping Centre, lovely seaside restaurants and bars and a few minutes walk from the beautiful Accra Beach. The apartment itself is air-conditioned and has a fully appointed kitchen with all the amenities. The large patio faces the east which allows it to benefit from the prevailing breeze. It looks out onto the gardens and is furnished with a circular dining table and four chairs, two single seated chairs and a hammock. Wireless internet, cable TV with all the popular channels, a stereo and a wide selection of books and magazines are all included.

We do require a few hours between departure and arrival but generally you can remain in the cottage until you need to go to the airport.
The apartment is only about a 5 minute walk away from the south coast board walk. This board walk extends from Accra beach to Hastings and allows you to walk as far as the Hilton Hotel on a combination of board walk and beach. There is a wide variety of restaurants and bars within a 5 to 10 minute walk including fast food, sports bars and fine dining. Many of them have an ocean view and open onto the board walk. The Rockley Golf course is only about 5 minutes drive away, the Barbados Golf Club is about a 10 minute drive. There is also the option of The Sandy Lane Golf Club and Apes Hill Golf Club. Both are world class courses and are about 20 to 30 minutes drive away. The apartment is about a 15 minute drive from the airport and about a 10 minute drive from the capital Bridgetown. It is very centrally located with pretty much everything you need within walking distance. There is also a frequent bus and minibus service running between Oistins to the east and Bridgetown to the west along the south coast road. Really and truly, nowhere in Barbados is very far. From the apartment, Oistins and Bridgetown are about 4 km, St Lawrence gap which is lined with restaurants, bars/pubs and night clubs is about 2km away. The Garrison Savannah which at certain times of the year has horse racing every Saturday is about 2 km away. At the Garrison Savannah you will also find some of our historic sites and buildings such as the Barbados Museum and George Washington House.
Because this apartment is located so close to almost everything, you may find you do not need to hire a car. However if you would like to, we can recommend a reliable company and make all the preliminary arrangements for you.
Please note that there is a 4 night minimum stay for this cottage. The cottage is next door to our house and we have two little Jack Russell dogs that might greet you.TripAdvisor property ID 4289820...Read more

Booking was simple (on-line). We received a quick confirmation of our dates. The owner booked a taxi for us which was great!
The cottage is comfortably furnished and has a large kitchen and bathroom. Beds were comfortable. We ran the air conditioner in the evening when we were ready for bed.
The cottage is a short walk to a shopping centre and the boardwalk. It is very close to Rockley Beach as well. We used the public transportation system to travel around.
The patio is a wonderful place to sit in the evening and enjoy the prevailing breeze.
The owners are very friendly and helpful and can provide information about Barbados.
The wireless connection is very fast and worked like a charm.
Having a local phone allowed us to keep in touch with friends in Barbados. There is also Direct Satellite TV.
It was very tough to leave the 28C temperatures to return to -28C temperatures.

Located in a lovely residential neighbourhood on a quiet street, the cottage is walking distance to the beach, shops, restaurants, and bus access. It was very clean, well kept, and well equipped with everything we needed. The large covered terrace opening onto a shared garden was a great spot for dining in. Owners were friendly and welcoming - available whenever required yet respectful of our privacy. We would definitely recommend for a relaxing stay.

The Cottage is fully equipped with the commodities you will find in big hotels and yet you enjoy being on a more private, familiar and exclusive setting. As from the accommodation, "comfort” is the word that better describes the fresh and contemporary furniture, bedding, social and kitchen area and even a patio with dinning and resting amenities. Full communication facilities like broad band internet service, cable tv, and local fixed telephone line, make your stay the most convenient for your personal or business needs. In addition, the Cottage is located about three blocks from the South Coast Main Road were you enjoy being at walk distance from the best beaches of Barbados, shops, fine dining and fast food services, both local and international. I know Barbados very well and I can assure that the place is a great choice whether you are a business person or you come with your couple or even with a child, and you are looking to spend a perfect holiday and receive customized service in a familiar setting from the owners who are ready to make sure all your needs are covered.
“Calm, close to beach and surrounded by nice people.”

I rented the cottage for 6 weeks, appreciating very much the full equiment with AC, fan, kitchen, bed and bathroom with linnen and on top of this a beautiful veranda towards the garden. All this in a prime area, near to beach and amendities.
It was best value for money. Even after spending bteh day at the beach or downtown I still enjoyed the hours sitting on the veranda, watching humming birds on the flowers.
The owners living next door were very eager to help with whatever needed or answering any questions. IT WAS HARD TO LEAVE THAT PLACE AGAIN.
