Overview

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Holetown - Apartment # 1 Art Studio

Ground floor apartment, comfortably sleeps 2 persons. Air conditioned bedroom.

Art Studio is an attractive, secure small complex of apartments in an enviable position on the west coast, close to Holetown, St. James. and nestled between the exclusive Sandpiper Hotel and Discovery Bay Beach Hotel. There is direct access to a beautiful beach and the Caribbean Sea.

The well-established trees and brightly coloured plants give plenty of opportunity to find a secluded, shaded space with lots of garden chairs and loungers. There is a daily maid service with the bed linen, hand and bath towels changed twice weekly. We do provide beach towels. There is a bound folder in the apartment giving comprehensive information on how to get the most from your time on the island. Our ground floor apartment is comfortable, and tastefully furnished with modern appliances throughout.

The bedroom has air conditioning.There is free, unlimited use of our wireless internet facilities. Art Studio has a relaxed tropical feel, and is perfect for a romantic getaway at any time of the year.

Places of interest:

The dazzling white beaches at Art Studio are just part of the island's beauty. The coral reefs that surround it host stunning marine life, while the landscape of sugar cane fields, pasture and native woodland are home to abundant native flora and fauna. Bajans (as the Barbadian people call themselves) are perhaps the island's greatest asset. Their friendliness is legendary and they celebrate local traditions with such pride and joy that you are bound to get drawn into the festivities. You are assured a very warm welcome from our friendly staff whose service and hospitality is second to none.

Barbados is also famous for wonderful cuisine, exquisite rum, a thriving artistic community and the infectious beat of calypso and reggae.

As well as excellent diving, sailing and game fishing, Barbados offers plenty of opportunity for land-based pursuits, with high quality horse racing at historic Garrison Savannah, prestigious golf tournaments, top-class polo and, of course, cricket!

Full time Staff:

We are most fortunate to enjoy the services of a very loyal and professional staff.

Should you require groceries for your first night, then Helena, our maid, will arrange this.

Helena will clean and tidy daily, other than Tuesday, her day off and Public holidays.

The bed linen and towels will be changed twice weekly.

This maid service is included in the price of the apartment rental.

Barbados is very well served by a public bus service, which is both frequent and inexpensive.

The nearest Bus stops are very close by.

The information book in the apartment is quite detailed, but if you cant find what you are looking for, then any of the staff will be very happy to assist you.

Eating out.:

Art Studio is less than a five minutes walk from 1st and 2nd Street, Holetown, where you will find an amazing array of restaurants, bars and clubs.

If we start with 2nd Street here you will find The Piano Bar, where there is a party going on most nights of the week, but their liveliest nights are on the weekend Friday, Saturday and Sunday. They always have live entertainment with someone on the piano, and on a Sunday evening they have karaoke. Here you can spot some very famous personalities, staying on the west coast . You will find both Mediterranean and Cantonese food nearby.

If you fancy eating Indian food then head to Sitar.

For pizza and Italian food lovers, then you should head to Spago.

For those who like French cuisine and fresh seafood,The Mews is the place for you.

The recently opened Lime Grove Complex opposite !st & 2nd Street offers further opportunities for day day time dining, together with the most impressive array of world renowned shops

This is an extract from their own web site:

Limegrove Lifestyle Centre has emerged as the most stylish place to shop, dine, and lime for all visitors and residents of Barbados .

Limegrove, Barbados' first mixed use lifestyle centre, is located in the heart of Holetown, covers ten acres and includes approximately 85,000 sq. ft. of retail space.

Limegrove provides a blend of colonial charm together with irresistible, exciting, sophisticated experience for home owners, visitors, and West Indian residents.

Great apartment! Great location! Great value!

Great apartment! Great location! Great value for money!
We have recently returned from a two weeks stay in Sue & John's apartment.
Friends had recommended the apartment,
The apartment is very well equipped throughout..
We ate out most days, but when we did eat in, everything you could possibly need has been provided.
If you don't know the Holetown area, then there is a wide range of restaurants within easy walking distance.
We loved the fact that after a great nights sleep in a really comfortable bed, we could just put on our swimwear and within thirty seconds, could be swimming off a wonderful beach.
Back for breakfast; return to the beach, stroll for miles along the sand., take another swim and then dry off and sunbathe in the gardens.
Helena looks after the apartment every day, so you feel really spoiled.
The apartment is in good decorative order and the owners obviously maintain this very well.
Art Studio sits among some really fancy Beach side Hotels.
You could probably spend more on a one nights stay with them than you will spend on a weeks stay in #1 Art Studio.
The bedroom has air conditioning, but we rarely used it as there is always a nice breeze flowing down off the ridge.
Sue & John provided clear booking terms and conditions making the whole process very straightforward. and secure.
They provide lots of photos on their website so you can very clearly see what you are getting and nothing is overstated.
It really is a great place to stay.
