Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Fitts Village - Little Reef - Upper Apartment

Recently Modernised 2-bedroom Apartment With Stunning Views of Beach & Sea

Attractive upstairs apartment, in beach-side house with communal patio, leading directly onto one of the quietest and most beautiful beaches on the West Coast, with excellent swimming and snorkelling in the crystal waters of the Caribbean. Comprising 2 air-conditioned bedrooms, one with en-suite bathroom, the other with en-suite shower room and washing machine. There is a well-equipped modern kitchen for the chefs among your party. The lovely light sitting room, with stunning views of the Caribbean and the beach, has a cooling breeze blowing through it for most of the year. .

The village shopping centre and supermarket are within easy reach on foot. There are several excellent restaurants nearby, including the world-renowned Cliff. We are 1.5 km away from Sandy Lane and its world-class golf facilities. Waters sports, fishing, and glass-bottomed boats are virtually on the doorstep - and, if requested, many will pick you up from the beach.. For those who don’t wish to hire a car the bus stop is nearby, and the buses run frequently up until 11.30 pm. The apartment has Wifi internet access and on site security.

Little Reef is well situated for multiple activities. From the very beautiful beach, a few short steps away, there is snorkelling on the reef, where you may spot one of the resident turtles, meandering among shoals of brightly coloured fish. Boating and water sport activities are also on offer from operators on the way to the big resorts past Sandy Lane. Fishermen bring their daily catch into Fitts Village, just in front of Jordan's Supermarket, a five-minute walk along the beach.

For those who don’t want to miss the exploits of their favourite team, Wendy’s sports bar is just a couple of minutes away, across the road. Wendy's also have a snack bar. Alternatively there’s the Surfside bar in Holetown (15 minutes away by bus and car), a great spot for being on the beach and watching the footie at the same time. Holetown is also the place to go to if you want a bank, pizza or the larger Massy’s supermarket, which will deliver your shopping if you don't have a car. Holetown also boasts plenty of watering holes and restaurants. Bridgetown and the South Coast are around twenty minutes by car and the buses run regularly.

If you just want to chill out Little Reef’s balcony is a great place for watching the frigate birds wheeling above, maybe a fisherman making a catch, and world go by – and, if you are up early and very, very, lucky you may get a glimpse of a monkey in the nearby shack-shack tree. If you want take a tan back home Little Reef has a lovely sunny patio, or you can take the extra few steps to the beach. At the end of the day there is often nothing better than a walk along the beach or just watching a beautiful sunset and the boats making for home, while you enjoy a sundowner.

About Richard Britton

Paula and I live in Cyprus and have been visiting and living in Little Reef over the last 35 years with our family. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Richard Britton purchased this apartment in 1981

Why Richard Britton chose St. James

This is a family property which my late father bought when he was working in Barbados. He spent up to 4 or 5 months living in it every year and he last visited in 2013 when he was in his 99th year. The property has been used by 4 generations of our family and is much loved by all, as is the island of Barbados and its people.

What makes this apartment unique

Little Reef is thought of with affection by all members of our family, because of its location on a beautiful white sand bay untouched by commercialism, and the many happy vacations spent there. The perfect place for chilling out.

Fab, clean and just like the pictures

  • 5 of 5

The property was just as advertised, two bedrooms and two bathrooms with air conditioning. Large lounge and dining area looking over the sea -what more could you ask for.

Fitts Village is good, Il Tempio restaurant just a short walk from the Villa was great, not too expensive, but watch out for the waiters, they made us cocktails that we didn't ask for, but they were nice.

Another great place to eat is Cariba, again a short walk towards Holetown. Great staff and great atmosphere and not too expensive.

There wasn't shops or many little bars in Fitts Village but there was a supermarket, but this is what we wanted, not touristie.

Great stay and would definately go back and stay at the same place.

Simply a Tropical paradise

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have just returned from the most wonderful vacation in Little Reef ! We were tired after a long journey,were met by the wonderful Grantley ..who showed us into the apartment ,where he had left some essentials ...milk,butter,bread ..beer ! When we opened our front shutters , wow,we felt like we were in paradise....The apartment was a fabulous home from home...very comfortable furniture bed,loads of towels and space . We had some wonderful sunsets and a long beach for walks and warm water for swimming... Grantley told us that a turtle had come up in the beach early one morning so we got up earlier thereafter but weren't lucky enough to see one. We hired a car and travelled the whole island...make sure to go to Bathsebha ...amazing to contrast the Atlantic with the peaceful Caribbean ! We ate at some lovely restaurants ...quite expensive because of the exchange with the Euro but well worth it ...we loved the sushi night at Drift attached to the Beach House..you must make a reservation though! Little Bristol Bar in Speightstown is great fun especially on Friday night,when they have live music and 2 for 1 cocktails🍸🍸. If you don't want to hire a car ,the bus service literally covers the whole island ...the bus stops have become icons...you can buy Tshirts now with the symbol...Bus to city/Bus out of city..these signs will help you also if driving and thinking that you are lost!!! Finally a big thank you to Grantley and Esther for their hospitality and also to the owner RIchard, who made our booking so easy ... Almost afraid to recommend this hideaway in case it's fully booked when we try to go again ...which we will!!!!

Excellent beachfront property!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay here was awesome, and we loved that it was right on the beach! We could go out snorkeling whenever we wanted, could walk to the grocery store and restaurants, and catch a bus quite close if we wanted to go further than we felt like walking.

The bed was comfortable and nice to have black out curtains to keep the sun from shining in before you might want to get up.

The dining table overlooking the beach was perfect, too. Open the shutters and you felt like you were outside already.

I would recommend this place to all my friends and family if they were traveling to the area.

Richard, the owner, was fun to talk to, also. He answered all questions I came up with, and chose very kind and helpful caretakers to help with anything one may need. One day the water main broke down the road and they brought us plenty of bottled water to get us through until it was fixed.

We really had a great time walking the beach every day and seeing the sights on the island.

Hope you enjoy your stay as much as we did!

Kris & Ken

Fabulous Spot

  • 5 of 5

This is an absolutely gorgeous spot!! The apt. is just as pictured, with the view being simply magnificent!! When we were not in the crystal clear water or walking on the very QUIET beach, we were either sitting on the patio, or looking out our living room on to the beach and watching beautiful boats going by. I have honestly never spent as much time in the water as I did here, it was so warm and inviting. We did travel all around the island, and I have to say the west coast and particularly Fitts Village are the most beautiful spots.

Went up to Holetown and Speightstown by bus a few times and loved riding on the yellow and blue buses with the music blaring (the govt run buses were much quieter but did not run as frequently). Visited Huntes Gardens which is an absolutely magical spot and should not be missed. Drove around to the east coast with its crashing waves, and visited the Crane Hotel which was lovely. Went to Bridgetown for a couple of hours, a typical cruise port city, and to Oistens for a festival. Sailed on the Calabaza and swam with turtles, a fabulous excursion, and also went on a glass bottom boat, Shamus Too which was much cheaper, shorter day, but swam with many more turtles, looked at a reef and went over a shipwreck.

Richard was so helpful with any questions and was full of information regarding what to do. He was also very fast getting back to us.

A great two week adventure, and the Bajans are so very friendly and kind!!

Owner's Response: So glad you had such a great vacation and enjoyed Little Reef so much. Phew! You have done so much in such a short time! We are especially happy that you gave Fitts village a mention, as most people drive through it and never see the real Fitts village and its beautiful unspoilt beaches. Your review has made us very excited to be going out to Little Reef in 4 days time - as you say it is a gorgeous spot.!

A little slice of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Spotless apartment with exceptional views - you can toss a stone into the turquoise water below. Great communication from owner and extremely reliable support in Barbados. Cannot recommend too highly.

Couldn't Stay Away

  • 5 of 5

Second visit to Little Reef and feeling a little addicted. Just when I thought it couldn't get any better, it did!

A little surprised to find the terrace overlooking the ocean had a facelift. Quite honestly, loved everything as it was last year but must say it was definitely nice to have an enlarged space complete with lounge chairs and barbeque. Little Reef is a rare treasure period! Totally agree with all other reviews in saying the view is spectacular and that having the chance to enjoy this beautiful property is beyond special. Already planning the next trip!

Fitts Village is predominantly a residential area virtually untouched by commercialism. For golfers there are 5 courses within half an hour's drive, including 3 courses at Sandy Lane and the Royal Westmoreland only 5 minutes away. A short trip along the road to Holetown brings you to the Chattel houses, which contain local arts and crafts for sale - and for non- shoppers you can have a coffee and read the paper. For divers the West Side Scuba Centre is in the same location

The Earthworks Pottery, which is only a 15/20 minute drive way is well worth a visit. Speightstown, with its historic buildings - some dating back to soon after the first settlement of Barbados - is 15/20 minutes beyond Holetown. Bridgetown, which is a short trip by bus or car, also has historic buildings, the beautiful Carenage where boats moor, fish and vegetable markets, good shops, and for cricket lovers the Kensington Oval.
