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.

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

Charming place, great location!

  • 5 of 5

Have just returned from a 3 week stay at Little Reef. It is just as lovely as the photos show, and we very much enjoyed our visit. So much, in fact, that we've just booked again for 2018! Many thanks to Sally, as well as Grantley and Shirley for their kindness and attention during our holiday. Can't wait for next year!

Great place to stay as always

  • 5 of 5

The fact that we continually return to Little Reef speaks for itself.

Sally, Shirley and Grantley are as always, very nice and helpful.

Little Reef is a 2 bedroom ,2 bathroom apartment with a fully equipped kitchen and a washing machine.

We had breakfast every morning on the balcony which has one of the best views on the west coast.

Although we eat out a lot at North Point and The Round House etc. we still feel that the ambience and view sitting on the balcony of Little Reef matches if not betters,other seafront restaurants.

This is our 29th year coming to Barbados and we have stayed in many properties but will hopefully keep coming back to Little Reef .

We have just booked up for Little Reef for 2018.

Paul, Brenda and daughters, (Scotland)

Every day we would go down the couple of steps to the beach and go snorkelling.

What a find

  • 5 of 5

This is an amazing location, right on the beach, with a beautiful deck.

The apartment is very nice, well equipped, clean and well looked after by the help.

We enjoyed 3 lovely weeks here and were able to get all around the island by bus.

The beach out front is beautiful, with some good snorkelling just off to one side.

It is nice to be able to walk to the grocery store for supplies and if you have a big load they will give you a ride back with your groceries.

We have been going to Barbados for 8 years or so and this is one of the best deals you will find right on the ocean.

Too bad I made the mistake of not booking again for next year, before I got there because as I have found out in the past the good ones go at least a year ahead and if you snooze you lose.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your glowing review. We tried so hard to fit you in for 2018 but there were a number of requests that came in quickly and before you had thought of rebooking. We will miss you, you are very pleasant to deal with and the perfect guests. Good luck with the alternative accommodation I am sure it will be perfect for you and the family! We hope to see you back one day

relaxation bliss

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd visit to Barbados & Little Reef ,no where on this Island could be more relaxing with such magnificant views .You can sit for hours looking over the ocean watching the sail boats ,cruise ships all passing by .

We spent a week here truly not long enough .

You can walk along the beach all the way from Little Reef to Bridgetown it took us approx 1 hr 45 mins but this was a pleasant stroll padding in the sea .

The following day walked to Holetown which is a stroll along the beach the opposite way equally as pleasant & a bit closer .

Had the most amazing meal ever at the renowned Restaurant called Tides not cheap but worth every penny

The apt is very well equipped for self catering which is good because eating out is expensive , but with the views & tranquility it's pleasant to use the barbaque on the terrace watching the ships pass by .

Grantly who over sees everything is running smoothly is lovely & happy to help & Sally is only a phone call away.

The weather was the perfect temperature which is why Barbados along with having the friendliest people makes this the ideal location.

Will we be back at Little Reef I would truly hope so .

Fabulous sea front property

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at little reef for 2 weeks and it was everything we'd dreamt of, beautiful location fabulous beach and a really nice apartment, it was our first time in Barbados but won't be our last. The location of Little reef makes a perfect base in which to explore the island. We always felt safe anywhere on Barbados, the people are so friendly and helpful, Grantley the caretaker lives right next door and is always on hand if you need him, after we arrived Sally rang to make sure every thing was alright which was a nice touch when your in a strange place,

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review. We do try very hard to ensure our guests have a lovely holiday and are happy when this happens. Barbados is a great place to get away for a break from the cold of North America or Europe but a lot depends on the visitor's own sense of adventure also and you have obviously enjoyed all aspects of what the island has to offer. Please come again we all loved having you there!

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.
