About the property

Studio apartment close to beach, restaurants, shopping and facilities

APARTMENT 6, ART STUDIOS, HOLETOWN

Just paces from the beach and a short walk from some of the fabulous facilities of the Platinum Coast, everything you need is on your doorstep at the Art Studios.

The apartments are peacefully nestled between the luxury boutique Sandpiper Hotel to the north and the Discovery Bay Hotel to the south.

Whether it's swimming in the warm Caribbean sea, relaxing in the tropical gardens, dining at one of the renowned nearby restaurants or a spot of shopping, nothing is more than a short walk away. If you just want to do your own thing, the apartment has a well-equipped kitchen and there are plenty of shops nearby ranging from simple but delicious street food stalls to the luxury Limegrove shopping centre. If you do want to venture further afield, there's a bus stop within a minute's walk (the fare is a fixed BDS $2 for all journeys). There is also on-site parking if you prefer to explore with your own car.

Other nearby facilities include tennis, world-class golf and, of course, water sports. For snorkellers or divers, Folkestone Marine Park is just a few hundred metres away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just to say we really enjoyed our stay at your apartment.



Great location for beach, shops, bars and eateries and walking distance to our friends who were staying round the corner in Jamestown Park.



The gardens are lovely with regular visits by a troop of monkeys running along the walls. The beach next to the Sandpiper (with the abandoned bar) was our favourite - ideal combination of sun, shade and for swimming and snorkelling.



The other residents of the Art Studios were very friendly and the ‘pagoda’ provided a great venue for drinks at sundown.



Anyway we had a memorable first holiday in Barbados and will no doubt return again.



Best Regards

Great time at the Art Studio Apartment.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the apartment in the last week of April.

Great location for beach, shops, bars and eateries. The veggie food van at lunchtime at the end of the road was great value for money (caution - only get one meal between two as portions are typically Bajan!).

The gardens are lovely with regular visits by a troop of monkeys running along the walls. The beach next to the Sandpiper (with the abandoned bar) was our favourite - ideal combination of sun, shade and for swimming and snorkelling.

The other residents of the Art Studios were very friendly and the ‘pagoda’ provided a great venue for drinks at sundown.

Anyway we had a memorable first holiday in Barbados and will no doubt return again.

So Awesome! Didn’t want to leave!

  • 4 of 5

The Art Studio #6 was PERFECT for our stay in Barbados. In beautiful Holetown and a very short walk to a beautiful beach. Grocery store also a short walk. The bus stop was also right outside. We had everything we needed. Nice covered front patio and well supplied kitchen. There’s no a/c but there was always a cool breeze. Friendly helpful Mechelle greeted us and made sure we had clean towels. We had need for nothing. We didn’t want to leave!

Amazing location!

  • 5 of 5

Located very close to the beach with direct access down a few steps. Every evening we took our drinks to the beach and with other very friendly guests watched the amazing sunset. We were the first guests under new owners who told me were going to refurbish the patio area and replace kitchen equipment and T V. I could not fault the shower and toilet, the large double bed was very comfortable and there was plenty of storage. Although there was no Air Con we were kept cool with all the fans. Garden was excellently looked after by Elvis, plenty of lounger both in the sun and shade. Superbly cleaned daily by Mischelle. A variety of restaurants/food outlets in all price ranges. I found the new owners Gloria and Den very easy to deal with and thoroughly enjoyed our 2 weeks spent at Apartment 6 and have already booked for next year! It is just a shame that because of repeat guests we could not make it longer! Thank you Gloria and Den

Everything from simple beach bars to some of the most renowned restaurants in Barbados are within walking distance.

The busy First and Second Street areas of Holetown are within 400m with a selection of bars, restaurants and coffee shops. The Limegrove lifestyle centre, with it's luxury shops, restaurants and even a cinema is also just 300m away.

You can also be in the sea in less than a minute (without having to cross any roads) and snorkelling with the tropical fish. The sea at Holetown Beach is usually calm and clear, with safe swimming areas clearly marked out by buoys.
