Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This was our fifth visit to Barbados and without doubt our best. 55 Hibiscus Avenue is a perfect place to rest and recuperate, and on this paradise island. The bungalow itself is set in a tranquil and beautiful tropical garden and has everything you could need. Comfy bed, big fridge, fully equipped kitchen, cable TV.....and, in Mata and Bedo, friendly thoughtful yet inconspicuous hosts. Mata's samosas and philouri and Mango Chutney are not to be missed and you might even be lucky enough to party with them at the Beach House....a fantastic private members' facility that is such a bonus for guests. The house is perfectly positioned for the beach, the supermarket, and all the bars and restaurants of Sunset Crest and Holetown. Don't miss Surfside for a perfect sundowner on the beach or Just Grillin' for delicious, authentic and good value Bajan cooking....for a special occasion you can't beat Drift for cocktails and Tides for dinner. Thanks Mata and Bedo....we're still trying to work out how to get back in April!

Brilliant :-)

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Barbados... We absolutely loved it!! The apartments were great - they are set in lovely tropical gardens and have everything you would need for a self catering holiday at a reasonable price! We visited several amazing places on the island, but Holetown was definitely our favourite.. We would definitely recommend it! The apartments are perfectly positioned for all amenities - close to lovely beaches/ supermarket/ shops/ cafes/ bars/ bus stop etc. Also, the beach house is just across the road - Its a lovely private swimming pool/bar for Suncrest residents :-)

We would like to say a huge thanks to Mata & her family for letting us stay in the apartment - Mata was a wonderful host & went out of her way to make us feel at home on our first visit to Barbados. She gave us plenty of information on the best things to see and do around the island & it was great to have a couple of drinks with her before we left. We would love to stay again sometime soon!!

Thanks again,

Lindsay & Michelle x

  • 4 of 5

Mata and family, Thank you for a wonderful stay during our week there. My daughter and I had "The Best" time during our stay in your apartment.

Barbados is like our second home; we vacation there many of times but this was the first time we stayed at the Hibiscus Apartments in St. James. The apartment is in the best location … everything is nearby i.e., banks, gas station, mall, restaurants, supermarket, etc. Plenty of things near the apartment. My daughter and I especially loved the use of The Beach House across the main road during our stay. This was the first time having use of a pool while visiting the island. There is no need to rent a car as public transportation is very nearby and readily available to take you anywhere on the island for Bajan $2.

There is a supermarket nearby but since I’m familiar with Barbados, I shop at Jordan’s in Speightstown, the next parish up since it’s cheaper than the supermarket nearby. There is also a Barbados $3 store in Speightstown which I love to visit first for the little things. I especially love how the Bajan food trucks are nearby the apartment with locals selling full course meals at Bajan $12-$14 which includes fish, chicken, lamb, rice, macaroni pie and salad just to name a few. These meals are 2 meals in 1 so there is no need to cook ... Meals on Wheels.

The beds in Apartment 1 are extremely comfortable and relaxing. Thank you Mata for being the exceptional hostess. Mata had arrangements for pickup and return to the airport and is a resource of things to do, etc. ... very accommodating. We fell in love with Mata and especially enjoyed the conversations. I look forward to spending future trips with Mata and her family. I can see myself living in the apartment for the entire summer. I loved staying at the Hibiscus Apartments. It’s kind of tucked away with privacy and is so relaxing. Mata, you are a pleasure and a really sweet lady.

pretty apartment close to all amenities

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 5 nights at the Hibiscus apartments and thoroughly recommend it. It is set in pretty gardens with an outdoor area for eating or chilling in the shade. The apartment is very well equipped, clean and comfortable. It is within five minutes walking from the bus stops, beautiful beach, supermarket, banks etc. Sandy Lane is accessible at low tide and there are lovely bars to enjoy a sundowner. Mata is a lovely lady who welcomes you into her home, nothing is too much trouble, she can arrange taxis and provided us with much welcome beers after a long flight/travel to the apartment. She responded promptly to all emails and was the perfect host. We are sure we will be back again, Hibiscus apartments provide a true welcoming Bajan experience, highly recommended.

Perfect all around vacation spot .

  • 5 of 5

Hibiscus is a charming apartment with all the necessities to provide a comfortable base . It is clean, well stocked, beds are comfortable, cable TV and internet. Location is unbeatable. Short distance walk there are stores, bank, restaurants, beach and a really fantastic beach club. The beach here is very sheltered, with lots of sand and calm waters. It is flanked by rocky shallows that are perfect for snorkeling. Waters are clear and blue and on a really busy day there may be 10 other people on the beach. Beach club provides lovely pool, free loungers, chairs and tables, bathrooms with showers, and there is always iced water available. Everything is clean and well cared for. The bus stop is right beside the club and buses come every 5-10 min and for $1USD you can travel quite easily throughout the island.

All of this was made even better by Mata and her family. Mata is a lovely host. She is genuinely warm and caring.We felt welcome and safe. Mata was super at helping us decide on our site seeing plans, pointing out best reasonable dining options, local events that we might enjoy attending and organizing airport pick up and drop off. She was always available if you needed anything at all.

Mata we thank you,

Hoping to come back soon Elena and Ehor
