Exactly what we wanted for our entire stay in beautiful Barbados!

  • 5 of 5

Ruth is a fantastic host! She made sure we had all the property instructions well before our arrival, and ensured we had a meet and greet airport pickup with her friend Andrew even at 10pm in a Sunday night.

From our first morning, we were able to walk the 3kms into Oistins for a Massey Supermarket stock up, which includes a walk by the Oistins Fish Market, where we were warmly received and well guided on the choices of fresh fish and shark steaks! The Esso there has an RBC atm, while the nearest Scotiabank atm is in St. Lawrence Gap outside a casino.

The upper Seaside studio is extremely well devoted and supplied. We made breakfasts, sandwiches and fish dinners with excellent choices of kitchen tools, cutlery and instruments. Ice trays, cutting boards, knives, gas stove, pots, pans, frying irons, and plenty of space to work with.

The bathroom is so nice. Great spacious shower, rain shower head, a beautiful vanity, and plenty of fluffy white towels to use. The closet space is huge for two people, with hangers, drawers, ironing board, etc.

The bed is so comfortable, and in a BIG space, with lots of satellite tv channels, including all the music ones. The double doors leading to the balcony are a great touch! The space out there is big enough for suntanning, enjoying all of our meals at a table with two chairs, with a big patio umbrella for shade from the sun which peeks over the building at about 11am til 3pm.

The pounding surf from the big waves is why this country locale is a wonderful place to fall asleep in the evening and wake up with a to, with an AMAZING strong breeze when you open the windows and doors. Great AC power and location too.

Private access, the washer was great for a mid week refresh of our clothing, very secluded, big neighbourhood of single homes to jog through peacefully.

Just a wonderful week spent. We couldn’t be happier with how we took advantage of the locale. The 20 minute walk in lit streets to to Oistins bus depot saved us hundreds in taxi fees. The yellow and white buses are party filled, while the blue are dependable but quiet.

Thanks Ruth! You stayed in touch all week to ensure we had no concerns, which we greatly appreciated. They way you accommodated us after our flights there were delayed by a day then our return home pushed back too will forever be respected!

Much Bajan love to Seamist!

I’m so pleased that everything was perfect for you and that you guys really made the mist of your one week in Barbados . I’ve never known anyone do as much walking as you guys and to get so much accomplished in such little time . Real professional travelers.

Fantastic place wonderful host !!

  • 5 of 5

This was my second time at Ruth's house on Barbados. When I returned this year I would have not consider to look for anything else. The apartment is at a great location on the water, with beautiful view. Spacious, clean, tastefully decorated , better equipped than my home. Ruth is a wonderful host, a fun and beautiful in and out person, an intelligent lady. I enjoyed our conversation by a glass of wine or by some grilled fish . Her family is wonderful too. I can not wait to return !! Highly recommended bc of the location, the host, the type of accommodation .

Unacceptable - Do Not Stay Here

  • 1 of 5

It's been nearly a year and Ruth still has not reimburse us for our deposit or the early departure we had. We left 2 days early due to no host present poor communication, no internet, no cable, incessantly barking dogs, loud generator running all night long across the street. Ruth agreed to reimburse us for the 2 nights and we've had multiple communications, but no funds have been returned. The guest down stairs left after the first day due to tics.... we should have taken the hint. I'm wondering if the other guest got refunded.

fantastic ocean front getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here end of february

booked last minute so had to move from lower to upper apartment during the week

Super clean spacious and comfortable upper and lower seamist

fantastic ocean views, with the sound of the waves ever present from the balcony and the apartment when beautiful arched patio doors are open.

very comfortable king size bed with ocean view

walk in closet and spacious clean bathroom

was picked up from airport by Ricardo who is super nice

showed me the sites, banks, groceries

very generous of his time!

Ruth, the owner, was also very easy to reach and available

I do recommend renting a car as it is a long walk to get to oistins and the lot

surfing and getting around the island very easy from this central spot

a couple of nice surf spots a walk away

would not hesitate one minute to return to this fantastic corner of paradise

Owner's Response: David was an absolute pleasure to have to stay with us at seamist. As David did book last minute , he had the oppertunity of being a guest of both seamist upper and lower. He was very happy with both. Hence , the negative reviews stated from prior guests, one of which whom had rented seamist upper during Davids stay in seamist lower are very untoward. I am still waiting on a reduced rate from Kristen whom stayed at seamist upper with a reduction due to complications upon their arrival due to the incompetence of my property manager at that time. See you again soon, David!

Pleasant apartment on the rugged south coast.

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I traveled to Barbados in January, splitting our time between the west and south coasts. We spent our final 4 nights at Seamist Upper after 3 nights near Holetown. We loved the contrast between the two areas and enjoyed the perpetual breeze and sound of the sea at this property.

We had many questions about the accommodations and the island prior to booking and Ruth answered them all. She arranged a car for us through GL Rentals and the process was smooth. Ruth's property manager was waiting for us to give us the keys, a tour, and a welcome drink. She called the next morning to see if we needed anything. When I said we needed dish towels, they were brought over immediately. Seamist is located in a quiet residential area across the street from the ocean. There are two convenient access points to get to the water, where the shore is a mixture of beach and coral rock. A short walk east takes you to the Silver Sands Beach area. On the way is the Surfer's Bay Cafe, a few minutes walk along the coast, (a longer more confusing drive) a good spot for late afternoon drinks or eats.

We really liked the location. I would recommend a car for convenience, but you could get along without one if preferred. Oistens and beautiful Miami Beach are nearby. It is close enough to drive to the hustle of Dover Beach and the St. Lawrence Gap if that's what you like. We explored the southeast including the spectacular Crane and Bottom Bay beaches.

A previous review suggested that the main house was unoccupied and disheveled. There were a few signs of that on the exterior with some neglected belongings on the veranda. Perhaps the grounds and walkway to the back could use some tending to, but these are minor points. On the whole, the property is tidy and lovely, the area is safe and convenient, and the apartment is modern and comfortable. The view is as advertised, beautiful. Seamist has everything needed for a great holiday. Ruth and her designates were terrific hosts.

Kristen i was glad to see your review back up, i was afraid that Ruth refunded you to take it off. We have been travelling for over 30 years and never had an experience this bad. after hearing from my son that VRBO was a good experience for them I thought we would give it a try. I am generally very cautious when it comes to sending money for anything booked or bought over the internet, but i thought that this website was pretty safe and that the people who advertised on here were screened. I was drawn to the pictures of the place but in fact there is much upkeep to be done on the place, it looks like the owner just walked out of there place and left it in a mess. we were greeted by Jodi as the owner was now living in England and she indicated that we were booked for the lower unit but it needed some maintenance, we could have the upper unit just until the other guests arrived. I asked what kind of maintenance and we were told the cable was not working. I didn't want to move but my husband is much kinder and told them we would, well the TV, phone, cable, air conditioning all were not working including the fridge which was full of mould inside and out . Jodi had to have the owners fridge moved to our unit for the duration of our stay. The reason we go on vacation is to get away from the stresses of work and life and our vacation was anything but relaxing! Property may have been beautiful when the owners were there but has quickly declined. No rum punch, no working bikes, no bbq, no complimentary pick up at the airport, the owner wanted 75usd for maid service which was advertised as included so I kindly gave her 50usd . While this mess was going on she emaild me constantly and offered us a dinner or refund as compenasation but all we asked for was 2 days refund and since getting home we have only heard from her once. Guess we should have taken her up on the dinner!!! doesnt look like she will be honest enough to return our hard earned money!!

Owner's Response: 0wners response: I can honestly say, I the owner of the property, left my property at the end of December and my House< "seamist" was fine. I am to assume that you and kristen are speaking of the main house ? Unfortunately , i made the mistake of employing Miss Jody Richards as my property manager early January. From this time, it is now plainly obvious from yours and kristens reviews, that she was deceitful and untrustworthy ,as from this time all maintenance ,she assured me was being taken care of and was not. As an owner, I sent money for bills , cleaning and maintenance of the property inside and out to jody. Prior to your arrival, jody advised me that she still had issues with the cable.This was as she had not paid the bill! I then advised her to put you and your husband in seamist upper for obvious reasons to give her more time to rectify the maintenance issues pertaining to seamist lower. She then told me that the airconditioning did not work at all, after telling me that it was "playing up". Immediately , as she did not carry out for it to be serviced,I arranged for it to be serviced. I was informed that a new unit was needed. This was installed immediatly after your departure. Prior to your arrival, Rita , I said to jody that i was worried and concerned, she told me to "relax." Regarding the fridge, I am astounded to hear what you have written! I do wish you had told me this when you were there! I admit that is disgusting, and it disgusts me that any person would work(or not) in such a manner and call themselves a "property manager" I apologise that she did not give you the vouchers for your free rum punch at cafe luna. I am not the dishonest person here. My new television was removed and replaced with one that did not work. I have only just been told that she had not moved out the fridge that needed to be. She told me that it had been removed and a pot put in its place Need I say anymore! Yes, I did offer you dinner as that was about all I could do at that time ,being the fact that I am in England with my son following the passing of my mother and dealing with personal matters. I will be in touch with you personally regarding a compensation of some sort for your last two nights as the airconditioning did not work . This is after our conversation via email on the 22nd of february. After your and kristens arrival, jody was dismissed from seamist. Since then, everything has been running smoothly, with honest and trustworthy people.

"Seamist upper and Lower" are located in the highly desirable, area of Atlantic shores., on the south coast of the island.

It is situated on Seaside Drive, a quiet neighbourly ocean road which is very popular with the residents to have a pleasant sunset stroll or to go for an early morning jog.

Seamist being not directly on the beach has its added safety aspects,(although the area is very safe,, so no worries there.)

Seamist property is enclosed behind large wrought iron gates.

We have an unforgettable, breathtaking view of the ocean , with coconut trees in the foreground.

Spectacular but yet so peaceful.


This is the place to stay for your surfing vacation ,

South Coasts top surf spots are just a stone throw away.

SOUTH POINT is a five minute walk from Seamist.

FREIGHTS BAY is just around the corner from south point , so the choice of where suits you best is yours!

Both locations welcome surf watchers/photographers with areas to sit.

The World famous "Oistens Fish Fry", is held every friday in oistens, which is just a ten minute drive away.

The cost of a taxi is ten barbados dollars (5 usd), which is a good idea as banks beer or the rum and cokes just seem to flow very easily , along with your choice of freshly caught fish and shrimp ,cooked right in front of you on the grill.

Award winning "cafe Luna" roof top restaurant and bar is very popular amongst seamit guests.

Once been, all guests go for a second wonderful dining experience.

Cafe Luna is just a10 dollar taxi ride .

Going the other, taking a 5 minute walk accros the pasture with the ocean just a few feet away is ,"Surfers Bay", beach bar and grill.

This is popular with our guests on their first night and also on Sundays for the entertainment there.

Surfers Bay beach bar and restaurant is a five minute walk accross a pasture to the left of seamist.

Entertainment every sunday .

The ocean, with our own beach is just two minutes walk away.

Surf or stand up paddle is an absolute must to try if you are not already an avid or professional surfer.

SURFINBARBADOS along with DREADORDEAD SURF SHOP are familyy owned and will take care of all your surfing needs.
