About Lisa Carroll

We live in London and try to spend at least 2 months in Barbados as we love it so much.

Why Lisa Carroll chose Holetown

Our friend invited us to stay in his apartment and a few years later he was selling it. It was perfect timing for us as we were looking for a property on the island and we loved the set up at Art Studio condominiums.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment is so close to the sea and all amenties in Holetown. It is so lovely sitting on the balcony watching the birds and listening to the sea.The apartment complex is relaxed and open plan and the staff are excellent, friendly and very informative of the local area.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great stay, thank you! The apartment was very comfortable and well equipped, we wanted for nothing! We spent a lot of time on the balcony on your super comfy sun loungers. The staff were amazing and couldn't do enough for us. We would love to stay again one day!



We had selfies with Simon Cowell ;) and spotted a couple of super models + Chris Evans and family all of which amused us. We ate some great food from the vans and Rocknet as well as amazing meals at Nishi and the Cliff Beach (definitely recommend both).

Return visit to the Art Studios

  • 5 of 5

We returned to Art Studios again this year having stayed in the complex last year. We chose no14 due to the fact that we had a view of the sea and faced away from the entrance roadway. We were very pleased with our choice of apartment and can say that the details on the web site lived up to our expectations. We have enjoyed a peaceful relaxed three weeks and were very sad at having to return home. We are independant travellers and hired a small car to use for shopping and touring the island eventually traveling approx 750 miles. We visited all the places we have seen before and enjoyed every minute. We tended to use the car in the morning then return middle afternoon to swim on the beach which we also enjoyed each morning before breakfast. The local people of Barbados are very friendly and if you take the time will always enjoy talking to you.

We have not eaten out in the evenings but at mid day. We found the cost of lunch acceptable and enjoyed the variety of dishes on offer in locations all over the island. The local supermarket in Holetown is more than adequate supplying good quality food at about UK prices with many well known UK brands available incuding frozen meals such as Pizza etc. The cooking facilities in no14 are very good similar to what would be at home. We enjoyed cooking almost every evening. There are however many good quality restaurants within easy walking distance of the Art Studios which we have in the past visited.

We found the layout of the apartment ideal with the bedroom and bathroom downstairs it being cooler after a day in the sun. The enclosed balcony was a favourite place for us where we ate breakfast, watched the antics of the wild birds, sat and read books in the afternoon with a sample of the local brew. The apartment was cared for by the local team and they made us feel so welcome, you could not ask for any better care and attention.

We have enjoyed our visit to the Island of Barbados and for us the apartment no 14 completely met with our expectations. Many thanks for a great holiday.

Owner's Response: We do our best to give an honest description of our apartment, so that our guests know what to expect. Unfortunately the sea view is not always seen, the bushes and trees tend to grow very quickly and can occassionally block some of the view. It is great when people enjoy Art Studios so much that they want to return. The staff are dedicated and work very hard to make your visit enjoyable.

Great location as could walk to dinner, shopping. Bus stop at end of the road. Lovely beach steps away. Kitchen very well equipped. Property very clean and staff exceptional. Thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and plan to go again in 2017.

Perfect base for Bajan break

  • 5 of 5

Just got back from a lovely three-week stay at Art Studios. Can't recommend it enough. Clean, comfortable and brilliantly located in Holetown - five minutes walk from a large supermarket as well as plenty of restaurants, shops and bars, although the well appointed kitchen means that you can just as easily self-cater and eat outside on the terrace. The pictures don't really do justice to how pleasant the terrace is - with a clear view of the beach and sea which is just metres away, with gorgeous swimming and sunsets. Why pay to stay at Sandy Lane when you can stay here and walk down the shore to the same beaches? Steve and Lisa were terrific hosts, with plenty of clear information and instructions before and during my stay. The daily maid service meant all I had to think about was which bar to go to next...

The perfect place for a relaxing holiday.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was comfortable and well-equipped for a self-catering break. Many meals were taken on the balcony which had a sea view as well as one of the gardens where the humming- birds were a delight each day.

We also enjoyed meals at Ragamuffins-a must is the Sunday night cabaret, Zaccio's is excellent value and the Surfside Bar is also worth a visit. Excellent Indian food can be found at the Sitar but the nearby supermarket can provide good quality ingredients if you wish to prepare your own meals - don't forget Earl ' s takeaways from the back of his car at the end of the road.

Each day, an early morning swim in the sea followed by sun-bathing on the beach or in the gardens.

The staff were all most helpful and welcoming and meeting other visitors to the Art Studios was a pleasure.

Would we recommend No. 14 to our friends? We already have ! As well as planning to return at the next opportunity- it' a real home-from-home. (With the right weather!)

Great apartment....fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

We were met by the housekeeper who presented us with freshly cut flowers from the beautiful gardens….so a warm welcome indeed.

The apartment was very clean and had everything we needed for a comfortable and relaxing stay. The kitchen seemed very well equipped, although with such a range of restaurants located a short walk away in Holetown we ate out most nights.

It’s the location of the apartment that makes this such a great place….it is metres away from a small beach and the beautiful sea view can be admired from the roof terrace.

There is a bus stop close to apartment making it possible to get to most places on the island easily, which saves on car hire.

I would definitely book this apartment again when returning to Barbados.

Spectacular view of the ocean, private, clean.

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is perfect for a couple, with king size bed and bath on lower floor and kitchen and lovely deck on upper floor. It is a basic but well equipped apartment, spotlessly clean, with daily maid service. Lovely view of the beach, with swimming and snorkelling. Close to grocery stores and restaurants. Wonderful beach walks in each direction. I highly recommend this apartment!
