About the property

1 Double: 1 twin: 2 Bathrooms. 1 with bath and shower.

Attractive ground floor apartment with patio leading directly onto one of the quietest and most beautiful beaches on the West Coast with excellent swimming and snorkeling in crystal clear water. Comprising 2 air conditioned bedrooms with powerful en suite showers. The main feature of the apartment is its inside/outside living with beautiful views of the Caribbean, especially at sunset. There are several excellent restaurants nearby and the local shopping centre and supermarket is within easy reach. You are 1.5km away from Sandy Lane and its world class golf facilities and watersports, fishing etc are virtually on your doorstep if you require.

The apartment has internet access and on site security.

Little Reef is well situated for multiple activities. Directly on a very beautiful beach there is snorkelling on the reef a short swim out from the shore. Boat activities are on offer from passing operators on the way to the big resorts past Sandy Lane. Fishermen bring in the catch in Fitts Village five minutes down the beach. Jordan's Supermarket is five minutes walk along the beach and there are restaurants within easy reach by foot or car. There are no high rise blocks of apartments, no fast food outlets nearby but local food restaurants are within walking distance. if you want to shop, need a Bank a good meal or a pizza, even a bit of night life, Holetown is fifteen minutes away by bus or car and Bridgetown and the South Coast around twenty minutes by car and the busses pass regularly!

If you just want to sit and do nothing but soak up the sun Little Reef has a lovely patio with an ambiance all it's own . The sunsets are very often spectacular and to sip a cool drink watching the boats go by is truly the most relaxing and stress free activity of them all.

We just want you to enjoy the experience!

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 St. James

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

Beautiful location, great apartment

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely find. We stayed for nine relaxing days taking in the wonderful views. Great position, right on beach with good snorkelling and swimming. We took two long walks in each direction along the beach, only having to go up to road once each way. Walk to Holetown went by Payne Bay and past some lovely beaches including Sandy Lane. On walk south, we found a local fish market where we bought fresh barbecued barracuda. Hired a car for a couple of days to see North Point, St Nicholas Abbey, east coast and South coast beaches ( Bottom Bay is lovely). Apartment is well equipped and very comfortable with good wifi. There is always a shady spot on the lounger area. We hope to return. Early December is a great time to go because the island isn't too busy or too hot.

Next time in Barbados

  • 4 of 5

We met Grantley while snorkeling on the reef in front of this house we got our gear on here and chatted for a few minutes suggested we stay on our next visit. He gave us a quick tour it was in between guests. Cute place we were up the street near black rock beach in Coralita which was awesome too but this is another option. Great snorkeling here I can say that!!!

Simple and clean

  • 5 of 5

It was a perfect place to completely wind down and relax. I sat for hours just looking out at the ocean. And, when I got tired of that, I simply walked down the stairs and went snorkeling. A definite do again!

Perfect for our 12 days on the island!

  • 5 of 5

We would recommend staying at Little Reef--we were there with two young adults and had a great time playing cards on the deck watching sunsets and stars in the evenings. You couldn't be any closer to the water unless you were on a boat--water is amazing and the sound of the surf is soothing all day and night! The supermarket is within walking distance--we walked to/from there along the beach most times. Found TONS of beach glass. The rotisserie is perfect for chicken! We'd recommend bringing your own knives and some spices from home if you plan on cooking at the apartment. Dave (taxi driver) was amazing--his number is in the packet by the phone. He took us all over the island and we found his prices were the same/better than other drivers who picked us up from the other end of the island to return us home. He took us to the airport at 4:30 in the morning and was always prompt about picking us up. Shirley, Grantley and Esther were very kind to us during our stay. Sally checked in on us a couple of times which was also nice. Charlie (jet ski owner) came by and we enjoyed a trip out on his jet ski. He also set up a 2 hr snorkeling trip and they picked us up right in front of Little Reef. We thought that was a lot of fun for less than half the price of a catamaran trip. (that was fun, too) We took both types of busses and had a little more fun on the non-city bus--the music was fun and it was definitely an experience! We would choose Little Reef over a hotel ANY DAY! Little Reef was very clean and we'd definitely return to this lovely apartment!

Excellent location right on the beach

  • 5 of 5

The property was exactly as described and was well equipped.

The very short walk down some steps to a perfect swimming area in the sea was wonderful, as were the sunsets in the evening.

The villa was well situated in a relatively quiet part of the west coast yet close to shops and restaurants.

Grantley and Shirley looked after us very well and we would have no hesitation in returning to Little Reef.
