Welcome to Sea Risk apartments, located in Fitts Village in the parish of St. James, Barbados.

The property was recently renovated and boasts the beautiful Caribbean Sea as its backyard. There is a reef to the left of the beach front of the property which provides for excellent snorkelling and you may even be able to catch a glimpse of the turtle who lives there. There is also a clear area directly in front of the property for those who simply prefer to relax in the calm waters.

We are forty-five minutes away from the Grantley Adams International Airport and the taxi fare should be around BD$ 80.00 or US$40.00 for two persons. The Cruise Ship Terminal is around a 10 minute drive.

Bridgetown, the island´s capital, is fifteen minutes South of Fitts Village, and Holetown, an extensive shopping and dining complex, is ten minutes to the North. There is a local supermarket (Jordans) within walking distance and public transport is right out at the front entrance.

Perfect setting for a relaxing beach holiday

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely lovely. Totally relaxing. We are a mature couple, I'm retired but my husband hasn't yet. We know the West Coast area and the location is ideal, very convenient and no need for a car. Just a stroll along the beach to Jordans supermarket for necessities. The bus stops right outside the house - only 2 dollars and very frequent takes you to Holetown in 5 minutes or down to Bridgetown, or further along the coast.

Al is the owner and is very welcoming - rum punch already cooling in the fridge! A lovely gentle man. We only wish we could have stayed longer than the week - maybe when my husband retires. We would love to stay at Sea Risk again - it has everything you need for a relaxing holiday. Thank you Al. (PS its raining in Manchester!)

Owner's Response: Hello Patricia, Thank you for taking the time so quickly after your return to let us know how much you enjoyed your recent stay at "Sea Risk". As you said, it's an ideal location, close to most conveniences with easy access to most places. I thoroughly enjoyed having you and James for that week and enjoyed our chats. No need to wait until he retires, just come visit again and it will be a pleasure to see you again. (PS it's also drizzling in Fitts Village at the moment!)

Look no further - this is THE place!

  • 5 of 5

Sea Risk is such a fabulous place to stay. The accommodation is simple and clean, but has everything you need, including a washing machine. We stayed in the downstairs apartment and really enjoyed using the garden which backs straight onto the beach. Our 3 year old loved running in and out of the sea and playing in the waves right on the doorstep – she also loved the snorkeling. The reef is just there a stone’s throw from the apartment and is full of sea life, including a reclusive turtle – she is generally to be seen around 4pm. We saw lots of brilliant fish including angel, trigger, lizard and squid to name but a few. The supermarket is a 10 minute walk away, or you can drive 10 minutes for a bigger shopping centre. We hired a car and were able to explore. Our favourite beach was Alleynes Bay about 15 minutes by car north of Sea Risk. We parked in the road opposite Lone Star and walked down. We saw turtles every time we went and even a MASSIVE manta ray – wonderful! Dr Cool gives 15USD massages, on the sun loungers which are a must. And Juju’s beach bar is good for drinks and food. We often bought food from local vendors selling delicious food out of their vans – home-cooked and fresh.

We watched the sun set every evening from the patio and swam until the sun went down. If you don’t want to leave the apartment you just don’t have to – it is all there! The little bookcase full of books is also very useful for fast readers who have not brought enough books with them.

Al is such a diamond and was so helpful and friendly. He made us feel so welcomed and is a very generous and genuine man – we love him!

Stay at Sea Risk and you will not be disappointed. We will return in the future and will definitely stay at Sea Risk again. Can’t wait.

Owner's Response: Julia, Your recent trip to Barbados and "Sea Risk" was so long in the planning that I am delighted that you and your family were not disappointed. From what you told me on returning from your many excursions, you really enjoyed the "Bajan Experience" in every way.......down to the delicious meals from the wayside food vans !! Sometimes I think I should move across to 'Sea Risk' and really enjoy all the facilities and delights it has to offer. My best regards to all the family and look forward to seeing you all back again real soon.

A haven for rest and recharging.

  • 5 of 5

Sea Risk was absolutely wonderful. As soon as we arrived it felt like home. The beach and sea are right out front, great for swimming and snorkelling. The patio is large and very comfortable. A well equipped kitchen meant we really never had to leave. Al was superb. He was there for anything we needed and his rum punch is out of this world. Will definitely return again and again.... keep the rum punch cold for us Al!

Owner's Response: Kelly, One of my main objectives is to make "Sea Risk" feel like a 'home away from home' and I'm glad that you experienced it during your recent stay. Would you believe that I have not gone snorkelling there in over 10 years but I always hear how magical it is from all of my guests. Thanks for your very kind comments and rest assured I'll have more chilled rum punch to greet you on your next trip.

Somehow, when I wrote my review, it came up 3 stars. NO way, more like 5 plus stars is correct.As stated before ,perfect cottage, clean, well stocked ,perfect view. The owner, Al is the icing on the cake.

One of the best vacation rentals we have ever stayed in.

we can't wait to spend two weeks next year. Counting the days to our return.

Thanks for sharing your bit of heaven with us Al.

Nice place --Great landlord!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent 9 days in the upper flat at Sea Risk and had a really enjoyable stay! The house is so close to the beach its almost crazy!!! The place itself is basic ,clean and safe with most of the amenities that will need for your stay. The beach out front has a live reef and the snorkeling is fantastic water shoes are a must! Also the sunsets a pretty special toooo. We basically had the whole place to our selves for our time there. Al the owner lives just across the street and him and his family are fabulous people!!! We will eventually make our way back to Barbados and will stay with Al for sure!!! Thank you Al for a great trip and all your help!!!!!
