Why Pat chose Christ Church

Coral Haven is close enough to everything on the South Coast but situated away from the noise and the hustle n bustle that can impede the relaxed vacation atmosphere. We strive to provide for that holiday relaxing atmosphere and our guests have been able to confirm this in their Reviews.

What makes this apartment unique

By day our roof terrace gives panoramic ocean views of the South Coast and at night the lights and stars above are absolutely amazing. When there's a full moon that view is gloriously picturesque.

Relaxing in the pools with a rum punch is the ideal way to 'chill' at the end of the day. Up there you can also enjoy the view of the planes coasting along the South Coast with arriving holidaymakers before landing in the distance but with none of the noise from their engines!

Guestbook comments from the manager

The appartment was really good for us and everyone around the appartment (nieghbours etc) was really friendly. Big thank you to Marcia as well, a very serviceminded and friendly person.

Kind Regards

A great experience

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at Coral Haven, Barbados from March 21 to April 20th, 2017 to escape part of our winter here in New Brunswick. We had to change plans we had originally made for that time, so we contacted Pat through Home Away in late February. We got a very quick reply to our inquiries and so we after consideration we made the booking. This was our first time to visit Barbados.

Upon arrival we found the apartment at Coral Haven exactly as it had been advertised. We had made arrangements with Pat to be picked up at the airport by local taxi driver (Joseph) and we were met at the apartment by Marcia. Marcia showed us through the apartment and a general idea of the locale and answered any questions we had.

The apartment was very clean. It was equipped with all the conveniences which enabled us a comfortable stay. If we found we required anything Marcia was just a phone call away.

We really enjoyed the area. The first full day we were there we tried walking to Oistins as several people had mentioned in their reviews. We found it too hot for us and were a bit discouraged. The next day we figured out the bus service and after that had no trouble getting around.

We did go to the little beach down over the hill a number of times but mostly enjoyed one of the many beaches which are just a short bus ride away. We often took the lawn chairs up to the roof and read. We also enjoyed cooling down in the small pools (about the size of a Hot Tub).

The area was very quiet. For most of the time we were there only two other apartments in the building were occupied. We enjoyed watching the hens and roosters which roamed the streets as well as the number of goats which were put out every morning and taken back in the evening. It was a real treat to sit on the deck and get a glimpse of the monkeys which would show up every now and again.

Then of course there is Chicken Rita’s which is across the street which became an instant habit – excellent Chicken and Fries. You may have to wait – but it is well worth it.

Our son joined us for most of a week and while he was there we arranged through Marcia to have Joseph take us on a tour of the Island. We stopped at the Wild Life Park which I would not recommend, then went on to Bathsheba which was beautiful.

Coral Haven was a great place to stay and really made our first trip to Barbados a great experience.

Very nice apartment! Quiet neighborhood.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was very nice. It is located not far from the busy Oistins market, and different stores and restaurants. In addition, there are several beaches around, you choose whether you like waives or calm water. At first, we used public transportation to get to different places (there were vans or buses available), but if we were to get somewhere else other than the main strip, we would have had to figure out other routes, which was hard to do. Vans or buses are assigned to specific routes and can't deviate from their routes unlike taxes. This was inconvenient especially at night when we would have had to walk from the bus stop to the apartment in the dark. Since we wanted to explore the island, and be more flexible, we rented a car. That made our stay more flexible and we spent less time on getting to places instead of exploring more places.

As for the apartment, it was very clean and had everything we needed. Marcia met us upon arrival and was very helpful. We enjoyed Barbados and will come back!

Great location, spacious, clean, secure and good value.

  • 4 of 5

We found Coral Haven to have a great view of the Caribbean Sea, with a nice secluded surfers beach within a five minute walk and Surfers Bay beach bar a few minutes further. Chicken Rita's was right across the street, definitely get the chicken as it had great flavor and cooked perfectly. Enterprise (Miami) beach was a few minutes drive away and was one of our favorite beaches. Oistens was a few minutes further and had good local food at the fish market. Friday night is a must for the market as all of the restaurants were open, music was scattered around the different venues and there were tons of people.

The apartment itself was spacious and had most things in the kitchen that were needed to be able to cook meals. The living room was comfortable and with the windows open and fans on there was always air going through the rooms. We were on the second floor and enjoyed the balcony. The wifi worked great and there was a small folding table available to set up as a desk. The bathroom shower was very large with plenty of hot water with great pressure. One thing the bathroom lacked was any shelf space to put things on so we had to keep the toiletries in the bedrooms. The beds in both of the rooms were both full-size, so there was not a lot of room for two people. A queen size bed in one of the rooms would have been great. The toaster in the kitchen would not stay down to toast, but the oven broiler worked just fine. We would recommend this location and would stay here again on future visits.

The appearance of the property looked very nice, very close to the locals

  • 4 of 5

On our arrival,Marcia met us at the apartment Marcia was very friendly and showed us around the apartment.The appartment was clean and tidy the only thing that we did not have was A/C as the bedrooms and livingrooms did get a bit warm but the fans did a fair job.The pool on the roof was not to bad was nice just to sit up there with a nice cold beer.I did like the area that we stayed in as we was across the road from chicken Rita which did some nice food.

The bus stop in to Bridgetown was a nice walk up the road we spotted a few chicken's and goats on the way which was brilliant.

All in all we had a brilliant time and will return very soon.

Owner's Response: Paul, we are pleased you had a brilliant time at Coral Haven and that you plan to return. Thank you for confirming that we provide everything except air conditioning. To do so we would not be able to offer such affordable rates because electricity charges are pretty high on the island. We look forward to your return visit. Pat and Marcia

beautiful ocean getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time staying at coral haven. The apartment had everything you need for your stay. The plunge pool on the roof was a bonus. The area is very nice with chickens and black sheep. The roosters are noisy but in a good way,as well as hearing the ocean from your bed. Washing dries amazing and so good to have a decent washing machines and iron. Area is very popular with chicken Rita across the road, my husband loved it. Beautiful stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you Claire for your review. We are pleased you had a fantastic stay at Coral Haven. We always try to provide what we think guests will need to make them as comfortable and at home as possible. Yes, Coral Haven is uniquely placed close to the ocean but also allowing guests to experience Barbados village life including the traditional blackbelly sheep. Best wishes Pat & Marcia

VERY NICE CONDO

  • 5 of 5

Upon our arrival, Marcia greeted us warmly. We then had dinner across the street at a local restaurant 'Chicken Rita's'. Great food and great people, very lively all week nights as it was during Christmas Holidays. It is not easy to explain where Coral Heaven is located when you are not from the area but everyone seems to know Chicken Rita's and this is how our shuttle for the Catamaran tour found us.

The appartment was super, just what we needed. No AC but deemed not required at that time of the year and there was a nice breeze allowing us to leave the windows wide open. The first morning, we got waken up very early by the rooster. We finaly decided to close the bedroom windows and used the ceiling and floor fans instead. WI-FI was working perfectly. The kitchen is equipped with all the basics you need to cook a good meal. Knives would need to be sharpened a little though or new ones maybe. We really liked making morning milkshakes in the blender provided.

During the day, we enjoyed walking around the quiet area in the streets surrounding Coral Heaven. We also walked to the Surfer's Point nearby and enjoyed watching the Kite surfers. Weather was great, the sea was warm. At the end of the afternoons, we enjoyed the roof garden at the appartment where we could overlook the wonderful view. The pools (a little bigger than a Jaccuzi) were great for cooling down and very clean. At night, we enjoyed having dinner on the appartment balcony!

During our stay, we walked a lot along the coast on the scenic route, we also used the local transportation (White Vans for 2 barbados dollar/person) to go to the beach, to Oistins, Bridgetown etc. Very cheap transport and you don't have to wait long to see one coming. For new year's eve, we had dinner at the beach bar which was a 15 minutes walking distance from the appartment and we really enjoyed our night. Everyone on the island is very friendly, that is nice.

We enjoyed our holiday and staying at Coral Heaven and recommend it. Thank you Pat and also Marcia for arranging taxi pick up from and to the airport.

Coral Haven is located at Landsdown, Enterprise on the lively South Coast. This coast is known for its vibrant nightlife around St Lawrence Gap (The Gap); the weekly Oistins Fish-fry; and for its beautiful beaches - Silver Sands, Miami, Dover, Accra ...

The apartment is near Silver Sands and the popular Miami Beach. However, there's a quiet and secluded beach a few minutes walk along the lanes and the popular Surfer's Bay Beach Bar.

For those interested in surfing Coral Haven is within walking distance of Freights Bay and South Point. The popular and fantastic Miami Beach is approx 3 mins away by car or a 25 mins walk. Beach chairs, umbrellas and body boards are available for rent; drinks/food stalls and restaurants are nearby.

At Oistins you will find bank/ATM, chemist/pharmacy, post office, souvenir shops etc. There is also the supermarket and DVD rental store where you can stock up on what you will need for your self-catering holiday. On Friday nights and the weekend it's the place to be for the outdoor activities of live music performances, karaoke and music; enjoy your grilled fish, rum punch and local beer ...

Bridgetown, the capital of Barbados, is a 'must do' for your duty free shopping and holiday souvenirs. The main street, Broad Street, is lined with department stores including the renowned Cave Shepherd. Behind Cave Shepherd is Swan Street which is a whole street of bargains - small shops and local vendors.

Barbados has an excellent road network and a good, inexpensive public transport system covering virtually the entire island. Take your hired car (we can arrange this for you) or public transport (cost BD$2 / approx 40p per trip) to experience the wonderful sightseeing opportunities and many attractions on the island eg. Harrison's Cave, Mount Gay Rum Tour, Sunbury Plantation House, Limegrove Lifestyle Centre, Atlantis Submarine ...

Use the 'Ins & Outs of Barbados' and the 'Barbados in a Nutshell' together with the visitor's map (copies provided in the apartment) to plan your stay on the island.

Enjoy your holiday!
