About the property

A Nice Balance Between a Private Apartment and Resort Style Amenities

Welcome to our lovely studio in beautiful Barbados! Enjoy all of the amenities of Rockley Resort, along with the privacy and comfort of staying in your own apartment. The fabulous white sand beaches are only 10-15 mins away.

This charming studio is our second home in Barbados. When we come to visit, we like to relax, chill at the pool, spend our days at the beach, and have dinner on the patio. We hope that you make this beautiful space your home too by making use of our kitchen supplies, beach towels and cooler, hair dryer, iron + board, lockbox, and anything else you might need for an enjoyable stay.

The Neighbourhood


Our favourite beach is a little walk down the road (10-15 mins), where you can rent beach loungers, eat fish cakes, and try the infamous Bajan rum punch (or have a burger, fries, and Banks beer which is just as good). You will also see vendors in little huts selling towels, clothing, and ornaments.

It is only a short bus ride to see 2 other very popular beaches in Barbados (Miami and Browns beach).

All of the beaches in this area have crystal blue water and soft white sand.


There is a restaurant on the resort, and many more along the beach. You will find both Bajan and Western food, along with Chefette - the Bajan version of Mcdonalds.. only 100% better (try their Rotis).

The grocery store is down towards the beach (10 min walk) if you want to take advantage of the kitchen. They offer a shuttle service back to the resort.


The Gap which is the most popular area for nightlife in Barbados is a short cab ride away (10 mins). Here you will find restaurants, bars, nightclubs, and food stalls. This is a definite must in Barbados if you like reggae, soca music, and karaoke.

The Oistins fish fry is another good option if you are craving seafood and is only a short distance away.

Getting Around

Barbados is a great island to explore and meet the friendly people.

There is a bus stop directly outside the apartment. It can be daunting at first to hop on, but I assure you that you will have an enjoyable experience. It is a great way to see the local culture and they have buses running all over the island. We have detailed information in the apartment if you are interested.

Taxis are easy to find at the airport, resort, and down at the beach. We can also provide you with a taxi driver for day trips and airport pick up/drop off. Please enquire.

Renting a car is a nice way to explore the island. This will allow you to see the how different each beach is on the island and experience more of the local culture.

Other Things to Note

Housecleaning- for longer stays there will be housecleaning once a week. If you would like the cleaner to come more frequently during your stay, this can be arranged at a fee. Please inquire.

About Jennie Kostiuk

I love travelling and meeting new people. . I am very excited to be hosting with my mom in Barbados, as I have been visiting the Island my entire life and am delighted to share the beauty of it with others.

Jennie Kostiuk purchased this apartment in 2015

Why Jennie Kostiuk chose Worthing

This has become our families favourite area to stay when we visit Barbados. Each area of Barbados has it's own atmosphere and unique attractions, and we find ourselves always coming back to the Rockley area due to its great location up from the beach, the proximity to the Gap, and its centrality to the rest of the Island.

What makes this apartment unique

I am available by email for any questions before and during your stay. I have been travelling to Barbados for the past 22 years to visit family and explore the beautiful Island. If you have any questions about things to do (beaches, restaurants, nightclubs, sightseeing, etc) feel free to ask.

Well equipped studio unit within excellent golf course setting; but the unit is tired.

  • 3 of 5

The unit is part of the Rockley Golf and Country Club. I had stayed at the resort over 20 years ago. The resort had a large hotel on site with clusters of condos and timeshares around it. The hotel is now gone and only the original clusters remain. This unit is within the Friendship cluster and I believe the units were previously occupied by hotel staff and Air Canada staff on layovers. The unit is adequate but well worn. There is no pool within this cluster of condos. It is at least a 5 minute walk to the closest pool within the other clusters. I would recommend that a 1 week stay is the optimal for this unit.

Perfect for a young couple

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay! The location felt safe, the locals were so nice and it was walking distance to everything we needed. The room was very comfortable and great to come back to after a long day exploring. I would note that to get to most stores or the beach it was a solid 15 minutes and more if you were looking for more variety. We didn't mind this at all, but it could be challenging if you're not a walker.

Comfortable studio apartment

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in this apartment for three weeks in May-June 2017.

The location was ideal for us; close to the beach and other amenities and easy to get onto the highway to explore the other parishes on the island.

It is a comfortable studio apartment with a small kitchenette and good shower. There was plenty of room for us to unpack our clothes and we made use of the laundry facilities although it took a couple of attempts to choose the right wash cycle!

There was a small issue with the air conditioning unit when we first arrived, however Jennie responded to my email and it was resolved quickly.

Jennie was kind enough to let us have a late check-out time as our flight home was later in the afternoon.

Owner's Response: It's worth noting the air conditioner didn't require repair, I was able to send a brief message on using the remote to cool the temperature setting in the apartment. Kind Regards, Jennie

Lovely apartment

  • 4 of 5

The apartment and the Rockley resort is such a wonderful place to stay.

The apartment is clean and has everything that you need. Dishes, pots, pans, etc. The bed is comfortable and the balcony is a great place to eat. While eating breakfast you can watch golfers start their day teeing off at the first hole.

The area is safe to walk around at night. I was there alone and never had any issues.

People are friendly and helpful.

I can't wait to go back!

Everything was perfect. The suite was ready and everything was as promised. The front deck is in the shade all morning which made the morning coffee and breakfsat very enjoyable. A nice quiet area and well kept. Elizabeth the housekeeper is a sweetheart and punctual. The kitchen is well equipped with everything we needed and more. Nice comfy bed too. Very close to grocery stores and beaches. Birdies restaurant at the golf club has something going on all the time with great food and reasonable prices. The pool areas are clean and well equipped. Really enjoyed evening swims. Another great holiday in Barbados!
