About Simon

We live in Poole, Dorset in the UK. We love Barbados and have been visiting there regularly, for the past 25 years.

Why Simon chose Holders Hill

We loved the beach and we truly believe it is one of the very best beaches in Barbados. We wanted to be right on the beach and in the area of St James with beautiful sea views.

We loved the large balcony as we could have 6 comfortably dine or relax in the armchairs. Sometimes the beach gets too hot for us, so its nice to retreat to the balcony but still be able to enjoy the beach and sea views.

Paynes bay is a fantastic location as it is halfway up the West Coast of Barbados ( Also known as the platinum coast). We wanted to be close to great restaurants, supermarkets, shopping and bars, yet not in the town.

We are on the same beach as the most prestigious apartments on the island being One Sandy Lane and the world famous Sandy Lane Hotel is just round the corner, which says it all really.

What makes this apartment unique

Our apartment comes with the loveliest housekeeper in the world. Her name is Dena and she is also a great cook. Our guests really do love her and she nearly always gets a mention in our guests reviews.

You will have access to a concierge service who can take care of tickets for sporting events, excursions, boat hire or just even some suggestions on what to do and where to eat.

Absolutely lovely oceanfront condo

  • 5 of 5

Coral Cove #12 is unquestionably as wonderful as the description, and the reviews by others. It is pristine both inside and out. The housekeeper, Dena is super efficient, helpful and was a total joy. Simon was extremely easy to work with, as well as very prompt with all correspondence; the booking process, all questions prior to arrival, during the stay, and follow up. There was an issue of construction next door, and Simon responded immediately to resolve our concerns to our satisfaction.

Everyone we had contact with at Coral Cove during our visit was super helpful and efficient.

We sent a grocery shopping list to Simon before our arrival, and everything was stocked, which made our midnight landing easier and less stressful. The on site 24 hour security not only had the keys on our arrival, they helped us up to the unit with our luggage. They also arranged taxis for us each time we needed one, at all hours.

The location was ideal for our needs, very central to the golf (Apes Hill, Sandy Lane, and Royal Westmoreland), the dining (The Tides, The Cliff, Daphnes, Cin Cin), and the spa at Sandy Lane. The property is comfortably and beautifully furnished, with private bathrooms and walk in closets in each spacious bedroom.

Nothing is better than being right on the beach and enjoying the sounds of the ocean - Coral Cove is literally right on Paynes Bay beach, with resort type lounge chairs in the sand, and no hassle of worrying about seat availability. We are very discerning and particular travelers, and usually hesitant to stay in a house/condo instead of a resort, given the high probability of disappointment. In this case, we were delighted that Coral Cove #12 exceeded our expectations. We emphatically and highly recommend this 3BR property for travelers of all types (friends, families, or 3 couples).

Coral Cove #12 has become our great escape over the last several years. Open, bright, airy, spacious, we have stayed here with as little as 2 of us and up to 5 of us with room to spare. Steps away from the cerulean blue Caribbean, chaises await you every day. Dena who takes exceptional care of CC #12 is a delight and the security staff headed up by Romeo are both a wonderful asset to staying here. We couldn't nor would we ever consider staying any where other than Coral Cove #12.

Best location on the Island

  • 5 of 5

Sandy Hill beach just steps from back door and Paynes beach a short hike south-- both with wonderful snorkeling and other water sports activities. Bus stop out front takes you one way to Holetown, Speightstown or Bridgetown for $1US pp each way! Unit is clean and spacious. Have cook prepare a meal for the day you arrive. She is excellent cook--rate is reasonable and we ate leftovers for two days! Snorkle gear, floats, beach towels--all in unit.

Owner's Response: Hi David, thanks for the review and glad you had a great time and you enjoyed your stay at my apartment. Just for clarification, the beach which the apartment is on, is Paines Bay and Sandy Lane beach is the next bay along. Many thanks and regards Simon

Fantastic property in great position on Paynes Bay

  • 5 of 5

Very well presented property right on Paynes Bay and ideal for those who want to be straight on the Beach, but then a couple of floors up and back to privacy. Spotlessly clean and very easy place to stay. All staff very helpful and certainly one that if we head back to Barbados would have no hesitation in looking up again. Simon was very helpful as is a great owner to work with.

Vacation stay was spectacular as always at Coral Cove

  • 5 of 5

Another great trip to Coral Cove. Simon's villa was spectacular. The accommodations were 5 star all the way. Our housekeeper was exactly what you are looking for in someone who can keep the place clean and stay out of our way. We barely noticed she was there. The unit was well decorated and equipped. Coral Cove is made safe and secure by their staff, which is led by Romeo. We will look forward to returning to this villa again in the near future. While there was a small misunderstanding with the arrival date, this error was quickly taken care of in a most judicious way.

As an added bonus on this trip we were blessed with a wonderful meal that was prepared by our housekeeper. Wow, what a meal. We were able to feast for a dinner, lunch, and another lunch with the same meal. We will be doing this again.

Overall, we are in love with the island, Coral Cove, and the people.

Coral Cove 12,

Paynes Bay,

St James,


The apartment is located on paynes bay beach. The marker on the map is the exact spot. For some reason the advert defaults as holders hill, as i guess that is the general area, however the apartment is on Paynes Bay Beach.

The apartment is located on possibly the best beach in Barbados,Paynes Bay. Paynes Bay is located on the west coast of Barbados in the St James' parish. Coral Cove provides complimentary private beach recliners and umbrellas which are taken out each morning by our security staff and then put away each evening. There is a buoyed off safe swimming area, directly in front of the apartment, in the beautiful calm Caribbean sea.

There is also a beach bar, serving food and drink 50 metres down the beach.

Water sports are available for hire at local rates.

Its excellent central location is just a five minute stroll along the beach to the prestigious Sandy Lane Hotel and Golf Resort in the next bay and less than a mile away from many superb restaurants including The Cliff,Daphnes. Cin Cin and Tides. Supermarkets,Banks and Shops including the LImegrove shopping mall are also within a mile of the apartment.

Golf courses including Sandy Lane,Royal Westmorelands and Apes Hill are all just a short drive from the apartment.

The apartment is located in a small complex of just 14 beach-fronted apartments. Our apartment is located on the 4th of 5 floors. The apartments have an elevator and there is also wheelchair access. The apartment has complimentary high speed wifi broadband.24 hour security. Full time property manager in Barbados.Concierge service.

The apartment can be rented as either a 2 or 3 bedroom unit.
