Larry was an extremely friendly host and was very attentive and helpful at all times without being intrusive. The accommodation is not luxurious however is very reasonably priced, especially for its location and and has everything that a couple would need for a very pleasant stay. The bed was comfortable and the air-con whilst a little noisy was effective. Bed linen and towels were changed on a regular basis and the apartment was also cleaned at the same time. Kitchen towel, toilet paper, and tea towels were also changed on a regular basis. Beach towels are also provided and changed regularly. On a few occasions we made dinner at home and we needed a larger pan, Larry immediately obliged! To the beach and sea it is literally down a few steps and you are right there on the beach! You can easily spot turtles and flying fish amongst others! Location wise the apartment is excellent, already on a lovely beach but also within very easy walking distance of other equally lovely beaches. There is also a supermarket within easy walking distance along with a very well equipped gym, laundrette, ATM, a nice Bar/cafe/Restaurant (surfers cafe) and of course the famous Oistins which is where the party is at on a Friday night!! There is a lovely restaurant Cafe Luna located upstairs at The Little Arches Hotel which is less than a five minute walk away from the apartment. Basically plenty of options for dining out out no matter what your budget! We didn’t hire a car for the duration of our stay but took full advantage of the buses (ZR White buses, the yellow buses and the official blue buses) all of which are two BBN dollar per journey and basically take you anywhere you need to go on the island. We always walked home from Oistins at night and always felt very safe, never felt threatened. Would we stay again-yes definitely!!
Booked Little Green Tara (LGT) as it is very close to the sea, but more importantly Surfer's Bay bar/restaurant!
I must admit our expectations were not that high, as the cost of LGT was on a par with a studio apartment that we had rented a few years ago.
Melissa responded promptly to my inquiry and maintained excellent communication throughout.
She arranged conveyance from the airport to LGT via the 'lovely' Lisa (who incidentally organised an excellent car hire deal through her brother).
LGT is a quirky, authentic Bajan cottage and we soon fell in love with it.
As I write this review I'm envisaging myself sat on the patio listening to the waves lapping against the shoreline.
Anyway back to the review - LGT is adequately furnished/equipped and with lots of covered outdoor space ideal for me as I prefer shade to sun. My wife is the opposite and spent long periods relaxing in the hammock in the sun.
The upstairs bedroom area is a light airy room with air conditioning (very quiet operation) and a ceiling fan. There is also a TV.
The bed is extremely comfortable and of a good size (Queen) and there are adequate pillows (6).
There is a chest of drawers, wardrobe space and under-bed storage.
The bathroom is separated by a louvred door and has sink, toilet and a large shower enclosure. The hot water is provided via solar power, so you soon learn when to shower and when not to shower!
Downstairs is primarily kitchen space. However there is a small work-station, and a folding table & chairs.
Outside is a wrap-around semi-covered patio area, which is essentially your living space. As already mentioned it has a hammock, Ottoman relaxer chair and a small portable drum BBQ.
Melissa contacted us upon our arrival at LGT to check that everything was alright and to inform us that she was only ever a phone call away. She even took the time to drive down to Silversands to introduce herself in person.
The close proximity to Surfer's Bay was never an issue regarding noise as it closes at 21.00.
In summary a thoroughly enjoyable 2 weeks spent in a lovely property in a beautiful location.
Would we return? Can't wait!
Thanks Melissa and see you soon!
