About Sally Stalker

I am Irish and live on the beautiful island of Grenada 45 minutes by air from Barbados. My family has owned Little Reef for over forty years and they still visit the apartment. The beach is stunning and to step from the veranda to the patio and on to the beach is a wonderful experience.

Why Sally Stalker chose Barbados

little Reef is special to my family as each generation comes to know its charm and unique position.

What makes this apartment unique

immediate access to the platinum beach is little Reef's unique feature and the indoor outdoor feel of the apartment allows for maximum experience of the stunning view. The sunsets are unbelievably beautiful. Fishermen catch sprats in their nets giving a timeless feel to the ambiance

Exactly what we needed.

  • 5 of 5

Little Reef was perfect for us. My husband and I booked this villa back in December. After a long snowy, dreary, wet spring in New England, Barbados was the perfect destination. The villa's location was great. Two steps out the gate and we were on the beach. We swam everyday for hours at a time, usually just hanging out in the water. We collected coral, went snorkeling, talked to people passing by, watch boats, sunsets and just relaxed.

The interior of the villa was very, very nice. Air conditioning in the bedrooms was much appreciated as it was in the high 80’s all week. But opening the front and back doors (not at night) provided a constant breeze throughout the rest of the villa. It was self catering, which is what we wanted and was equipped with most everything we needed to prepare a few simple meals. We followed all the instructions regarding security that were written out for us, and in doing so always felt that we were safe.

The location was ideal for us because we could catch the yellow buses, which we referred to as the “Crazy Buses” into Holetown or Bridgetown, right down the street. We could walk (cautiously) to Jordan's for groceries and beer or wine. We probably rode the buses 2-3 times a day, so the fact that the bus stop was so close was very convenient. The people who owned the apartment on the second floor were very nice and helpful, without being intrusive. Grantley was right there with keys in his hands as soon as we arrived the first day, just as promised. We also called him a couple times with questions and he came within 5 minutes each time.

We had an excellent time and would stay at Little Reef again, if we ever return to this wonderful island.

Sun, sand, snorkeling, and sunset views

  • 5 of 5

This apartment has a great location in St James, just a hop, skip and a jump to both Bridgetown and Holetown.

Upon our arrival, we found the fridge stocked with a mini care package of essentials (including a couple of bottles of Banks!). The caretaker, Grantley, who lives next door, was watching for our arrival and quickly got us settled in. The front patio doors open right up to give you an indoor/outdoor living area.

The apartment has its own personal patio for dining (there is no indoor dining table) and hanging out; however, the lower patio a few steps below it is shared with the upstairs apartment, which is worth keeping in mind if you would be deterred by this lack of privacy - your apartment and patio are front and centre. If, on the other hand, you enjoy meeting new people, the arrangement provides an opportunity to socialize.

The beds are very comfortable, and the kitchen is well-equipped for doing your own cooking.

Typical of this part of the island, the property is sandwiched between a busy road and the ocean. You WILL hear traffic noise. During festival season, there are tour boats including party boats blaring soca music during the festival season sailing up and down the coast, which was fun for us to watch/hear, but which I suppose might be disruptive to others (shrug).

You can snorkel directly out front of the property, which is on a sandy beach (bring your own gear). If you're into water sports, a short walk up the beach will take you to the lads who hang out by the Crystal Cove hotel, waiting to offer catamaran trips, water skiing and seadoo rides. The water is calm and warm. Be careful on the coral - there is the rare sea urchin to be found.

We never made it to Wendy's Sports Bar which is just down and across the road (tried a couple of times but she was closed for holiday festivities), but we did dine at Il Tempio which is a short walk away. Service there is slow but the food was excellent and the waterfront location is hard to beat.

We had a simply lovely time at Little Reef, and would love to come again!

A fabulous apartment on a wonderful beach.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was excellent, with very good facilities. It was only a few steps to the beach, which was almost always deserted. The sea was warm and the swimming a delight. Very good restaurants and other facilities close by.

Fabulous apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We deliberated about staying here or in a complex on a nearby street but as soon as we arrived we knew we had made the right decision.

Grantly lives next door and pops his head around from time to time to make sure everything is okay and the gates of the apartment are sensibly padlocked. As there are a few rental properties adjacent to Little Reef, we never felt isolated or vulnerable. Neither did we feel inundated with other holiday makers - I think 12 was the most people on the beach at any one time throughout our whole stay.

The bed in the master bedroom is huge and soooo comfortable. So that, along with drawing the curtains first thing in the morning and being greeted with the most amazing view, was just idyllic.

The apartment is very clean and comfortable with good wifi and all the mod cons. Jordan's (discount) supermarket is a 10 minute walk away (with most of the pathway being on the left hand side of the road!) They also have delivery vehicles so will deliver your shopping for free, although we never used this service as you are able to drink water safely from the tap.

There is a larger supermarket in Holetown which has a larger selection (including many Waitrose products!) but the prices are a little

higher.

We had good food experiences at Wendy's sports bar and the Italian. You can also get breakfast and lunch at the place on the 'Jordan's complex' or freshly-made pastries from out of the back of a purpose-built car in the Jordan's car park.

We decided not to hire a car. The apartment is on the main bus route so it is very easy to get around and the bus stops are just a stones-throw from the apartment. The fare is BD$2 no matter how far you go. (We went all the way to Oistins on a Friday night, which was a 50 min journey on one bus.) It is very easy to get to the main coastal towns but if you want to go further inland, you need to go to the bus terminal(s) in Bridgetown and change. The buses are bright yellow, decorated inside and fairly loud! You can also jump into the bigger blue buses or small white mini buses for the same price. It is not usually necessary to flag a bus down as they tend to hoot pedestrians to offer them a lift!

As previously mentioned, the traffic noise from the road can be heard from the apartment, as can the waves from the sea. It's really up to you in which direction you point your ears!

We can't recommend Little Reef highly enough. The booking process and communication throughout was excellent. Thank you

FABULOUS !!!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from our trip to Little Reef lower apartment, the apartment has everything you could possibly need with breathtaking views and direct beach access with great snorkelling. The whole booking was perfect from start to finish with excellent communication from Sally from booking right through to return home. Grantley the caretaker greets you on arrival , a really great guy who is happy to help you get settled in and with local information ie supermarkets, taxi’s etc. always greets you with a smile too. The welcome pack is also a nice touch when you arrive too....the apartment looks exactly as it does in the photographs very comfortable beds and the washer/drier came in very useful. Summing it up .....Loved every minute of our two week stay, stunning setting in a perfect location with fabulous views...didn't want to leave ..Thank you Sally and Sara for Sharing your little piece of paradise we highly recommend a trip to Little Reef if you want a total relaxing stress free holiday although on saying that we would love to keep it our little secret.!!!

Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this lower apartment having spent the last 2 January holidays upstairs. We had an amazing couple of weeks, the view is just beautiful. The access to the beach is fantastic, with an outdoor shower to rinse all sand away. We love Fitts Village and the people, they are so friendly. The apartment is brilliantly equipped with everything you need and the bed was very comfortable. The advantage of the road so near is that buses pass every 5 mins or so to take you anywhere on the island. We love Barbados and have already booked again now that we’ve left. Thanks Sally you have been great in all communications and ringing several times to make sure all is good.
