“A gem of a spot!”
My best friend and I recently spent one week at Calypso and truly enjoyed our stay. The house was clean and spacious and conveniently located close to Miami beach and Cafe Luna. The staff were friendly and readily available to answer our questions. The location was peaceful and quiet as well. We're looking forward to staying there again soon!
“Much enjoyed Barbados holiday in this delightful accommodation”
The house, which is only 20 minutes drive from the Grantley adams airport, couldn't be better situated. It is 6 minutes walk to the nearby, secluded Cotton beach - very convenient for an early morning swim - and 15 minutes walk (3 minutes by car) from the more public Enterprise beach at the nearby town of Oistins, with its shady trees and white coral sand. The house lacks for nothing by way of facilities - well equipped kitchen, two large, air-conditioned bedrooms upstairs, each with a bathroom, a spacious living area downstairs with internet enabled TV (handy for skyping friends and relatives back home) and an adjacent powder room with toilet. In the book case you will find plenty of information about the island - things to do, places to visit, restaurants to eat at. Take the trouble to replenish the sugar-syrup feeders in the patio area at the rear of the house, then station yourself on one of the reclining patio chairs with a good book and cool drink, and prepare for an evening's entertainment as iridescent humming birds hover skilfully to refuel from the feeders through their long beaks. The competition for the sugar-syrup in intense. Green lizards come to mop up the drops left by the humming birds, and cheeky, yellow breasted birds flit in when the humming birds are not around to take their share. The agency looking after the house was very efficient. When we arrived, someone was waiting to show us round the house and hand us the keys. On our last day, one of the agency staff came at the appointed time, quickly checked over the house, asked if there had been any problems and took back the keys. The formalities with the agent took no more than 15 minutes, and then we were on our way to airport after a memorable and very rewarding holiday.
“Return Visit to Paradise at Calypso”
It was so good that we had to go back for more! This is a great spot to stay while vacationing in Beautiful Barbados. Walking distance to our favorite beach and with all the comforts of home. The owners are very thoughtful and have equipped the unit with everything you could possibly need. Beds are comfy and and cleaning service a-1. An added bonus is the lovely little garden accessed by french doors with a wonderful new patio set! You will love it too!
“A great place to relax and enjoy the peace and beautiful beaches”
We have been staying very comfortable house for the past 3 years during the winter months. It has the great advantage of being close to a beach that is not too busy but very comfortable for both adults and children. The facilities and housekeeping services are very efficient and friendly. It has allowed my wife and I at different times to share with our children and grandchildren this wonderful place. We also enjoy the rustic and relaxed environment of Oistin, a little village nearby easily reached by car.
“Spacious, well-equipped, convenient and attractive house”
We had a great time at Calypso! Chris and Steve and their local agency provided all we needed to enjoy our holiday. The house is fully equipped: even a cool-bag for the beach, guidebooks, a blender, beach towels etc.. The 2 air-conditioned bedrooms with bathrooms were perfect for ourselves and 2 teenage daughters. Beautiful Enterprise Beach is only a short walk away, and is one of the best we found. We would recommend hiring a car to explore the island and for greater freedom. In summary, we would thoroughly recommend Calypso, and would certainly return there ourselves!
“Home from Home in Enterprise, Barbados”
Thank you for the use of your fabulous home, how lucky were we to find it as described. We were pleased to hear that everyone renting your home has respected and cherished the quality and attention to detail that you have obviously poured into it, as you say it is an act of faith which everybody has respected. The setting was ideally placed for the local beaches,Oistins and Little arches Hotel where the setting and food were superb. All were walking distance away. We couldn't fault any of the holiday and will look forward to a re-visit and recommend to family and friends. We have left comments in the Visitor Books and found the suggestions in it with regard to eateries and excursions invaluable. Thank you again.
“Great time and location!”
We had a wonderful time at Chris and Steve's townhouse in Oistins. Everything was as advertised and the location was perfect. My wife, 4 year old daughter and I walked to the beach every day. Walked over to the rooftop bar at the Little arches (highly recommend) in the afternoon for happy hour. The Oistins fish market is a nice walk and we had dinner there most nights. We didn't even rent a car as the bus and taxi system is really easy and convenient. Read many books on the secluded little patio and even got to see the monkeys across the street! We had a very relaxing and enjoyable two weeks!
“Lovely house, lovely Island”
My wife and I stayed here on our honeymoon and we were not disappointed. Being located 3 minutes away from a small beach and just 10 minutes away from Enterprise beach, was ideal. The house is nicely directed, modern and very clean. It was probably cleaned about 4 times during our 12 day stay. There is a notice board on the kitchen and on it is a number for a local taxi driver called Donna. We highly recommend her as she was friendly reliable and a little cheaper then many other firms we used. If you're planning a visit we have a couple of recommendations: Oistins on a Friday night. This place turns into an outdoor club with about 50 different huts selling all kinds of different fish. It's amazing. Such a friendly atmosphere and amazing food to go with it. We also recommend a restaurant called Tapas. Located about a 20 minute taxi ride from the house, it's great food and beach front location are a must try. We would definitely recommend this house to anyone wishing to visit the Island. We did hire a car for about 5 days but only because we wanted to explore the Island a little more without the restrictions of relying on a taxi driver. We will definitely hold this place in mind should we ever decide to go back. Thanks Chris and Steve for allowing us to use your house for our honeymoon. It was truly unforgettable.
“Perfect Holiday Rental”
"We rented the Calypso with another couple in april and loved it.The description of the apartment is most accurate and the apartment very clean and well maintained. It is so very well equipped and comfortable and best yet a very short walk to our favorite Barbados beach...Miami, where we went every day to swim and relax. There we consumed many a tasty fish cutter washed down by Banks beer from Mr.Delicious.(an Old bus converted to a snack bar on the beach). In the evening we walked to Oistens for yet more delicious fish. It is also possible to walk to other restaurants, the supermarket and drug store and very convenient to catch a bus to get around to other parts of the island. The kitchen is very well equipped to prepare meals but we enjoyed going out. April is a tad hot for cooking but however there is a lovely patio for dining outside. Honestly I could not find any way to improve on this rental. We were so fortunate to meet the owners for drinks at the Little arches (lovely spot with great view). We truly enjoyed their company and hearing of their Barbados adventures. Before we arrived they provided an excellent write up of how everything worked, where to find everyting plus countless information on what to see and do. They also have a very comprehensive library with even more information! Even the fridge was stocked with supplies to get us started! They have thought of everything. This is a perfect rental on a perfect island! We are going back for more!"
“Amazing...wish I was back!”
I spent a wonderful week here with my sister in February. A really special property which totally lived up to the photos. Everything and more provided by the owners to ensure an unforgetable visit. The house was a short walk from two beautiful beaches and the famous Oistins where mouthwatering food is available every evening and not only the "fishbake nights" We had rented a car but could have easily managed without. After a lazy day on the beach we would stroll to the Little arches Hotel for cocktails, drunk in a stunning setting watching the sun set! On to Oistins for a meal eaten among the locals and watching the world pass slowly by. Heaven! Thanks to the owners for making this such a special place to stay...such a home from home. Can't wait to return, next time for a longer stay!
