Coral Cove 3, otherwise known as "Green Flash" meaning the "perfect day" is located on the beautiful wide beach of Paynes Bay. The swimming is idyllic with clear waters and good snorkeling. The turtles often swim in the area and we have reports of many people seeing them when they are snorkeling.
The villa, "Green Flash", is located on the ground floor resides on its own wing. There is a private garden that is a stone's throw away from the Caribbean Sea and beach. Beach chairs are set out daily for those in residence as well as having your own personal patio and outdoor dining area. This spacious villa contains two bedrooms and is finished and designed with elegant furnishings. All bathrooms are marbled and each bedroom has its own bathroom. All bedrooms are air conditioned as well as containing ceiling fans. "Green Flash" can sleep five, as there is a day bed in the second bedroom that can easily convert into a comfortable twin bed. The master bedroom contains an attractive king size bed with pleasing fabrics and patio.
The open plan kitchen is fully equipped and has all the amenities of a modern home. All appliances are of the highest standards with a wine fridge and stainless steel finishes. For those wishing to dine inside, there is a wonderful "mango" wooden table that will seat six comfortably. The living room contains a 52" High Def. LCD television, DVD player as well as a music station dock to play your favorite sounds. In both bedrooms we have televisions and in the second bedroom there is also a play station 3 video game blu-ray console for those looking for something other to do than sunning, swimming, outdoor water sporting or just walking the beach.
"Green Flash" is only a five minute drive to the famous Sandy Lane Hotel as well as the Holetown area where shopping, tennis and golf are all available. This unique villa is ideal for families as well as those looking for luxury without the big price. The sunsets are sure to "wow" you the very first night you come!!

We have been to Greenflash five times now. It is a perfect location and the staff are absolutely delightful and have become dear friends. The walks either way (up to Holetown and beyond one way, down as far as The Cliff the other) are a great way of burning off a few of the calories piled on at one of the many great restaurants nearby the previous evening. We have already booked for next year for myself, husband and two adult children. Looking forward to it already!
We are of course looking forward to visit #6! It is a pleasure to know that we can provide the right location for wonderful family memories. Thanks you so very much for the kind words and we will ensure to keep The Green Flash ready and waiting for your visit next year.

“A slice of paradise!”

Although I've been to Barbados several times, this was my first time staying at Coral Cove - but definitely not my last! The location - directly on the beach - was outstanding.
The accommodations were super comfortable and equipped with all of the modern conveniences, including air conditioning, flat-screen Tv's in all of the rooms, and free WiFi. The online photos are completely accurate but still can't capture the incredible beauty of the area.
Our housekeeper Marva, and property manager Zoe Willis were exceptionally helpful.
We can't wait to return!!!
Coral Cove is a special place indeed and it was a pleasure working with you to plan your holiday. We look forward to doing it again!

“Great family vacation spot!”

Our family spent a week here in November. Great location right on the beach. The condo was lovely, well furnished, spacious and clean. The best part was our lovely housekeeper Marva who took great care of all of us! She was a beautiful soul. Our son got engaged on the beach at sunset! A wonderful time was had by all!
Congratulations to the newly engaged couple! It's lovely that we were able to provide him the perfect spot for that very special moment. Sunset on Gibbs Beach is really a sight to behold. Keep us in mind when its honeymoon time! Thanks for the review and we do look forward to welcoming you back.

“Always a winner”

We have been to Green Flash three times now and have already booked our 2014 break. It is in a great position - lovely beach - and you can walk all the way to Holetown along the beach at low tide. The apartment is very well appointed with a lovely garden area. The staff - what can I say? Just wonderful...Marva the housekeeper is almost a member of our family now, Romeo who seems to run everything is huge fun and very efficient and albert the gardener is a joy. Our son (in his twenties) enjoyed a boys' night out with Romeo and albert last month and my daughter is going to join them next year. One criticism? Nothing to do with the apartment but a couple of times a week the beach gets very busy from about 10.30 to 4.00 as the cruise ships debunk their passengers for the day!!!
