Beautiful beach, perfect location
This place was exactly what we needed; right on the beach, easy access to buses and taxis, and an easy walk to Bridgetown. It exceeded all expectations. The accommodations were great! Awesome ocean view plus AC in the bedrooms.
Happy to know that you had a good time, thanks also in the name of zico who looked after you
A brilliant apartment in a fantastic location
We stayed in the ground floor apartment at The Brick House. It was everything we wanted and more. We were made to feel extremely welcome by Jens-uwe who did all he could to ensure we enjoyed our stay. The apartment is spacious and extremely well equipped. It's proximity to the beach is perfect. We would highly recommend this place and wouldn't hesitate in staying there again
It makes we happy that you and your family enjoyed the stay at my place, wish you well
This place was absolutely amazing, perfect location, insane views and the photos do not do the house justice at all inside and out. Jens was possibly the most helpful host and looked after us throughout our stay. We will definitely be staying back here again when we come to Barbados! Thanks Jens!
i know you had a good time Girls,nice to have met you all,until than be well.
Christmas at the Brick House
We had a truly fabulous stay at Jens' place. It is situated right on one of the island's best beaches, with the famous turtles just a short snorkel from the shore. Mornings began with a beach walk as the light rose, to the left to see the racehorses swim on Pebbles Beach, to the right to touch the rocks that mark the end of the beach and the beginning of Bridgetown.
We did not hire a car, choosing to walk or to use the ZR vans ($2 Bajan a trip). The location of the Bridgetown markets means you can walk in and out if you're not too loaded down. You can also buy freshly landed fish right outside the garden gate.
Jens is always available if you need anything and provides a whole range of holiday gear to make your stay better – barbeque, beach chairs, umbrellas etc.
We will return. We stayed in the downstairs apartment as the upstairs was not available when we booked (weirdly, both sets of people who were in it when we were there booked after us so I am not sure how that happened). I have my eye on upstairs for the return trip, it has the most astonishing view and is much, much brighter than downstairs. BUT in saying that, downstairs is fab in its on way and you're pretty much right on the beach.
And Christmas there? It is what you make it. To us, it was glorious.
Overall, we had a splendid experience in Barbados and our stay at the Beach Brick House. Our arrival was delayed due to weather and the airlines. We arrived one day later than planned. This delay caused several miscommunications. I called the taxi service (arranged by Jens) when our flight was rescheduled and also left a phone message with Stephanie (the house manager), who was to give us our keys and tour. We arrived at the airport in Barbados with no taxi waiting and Stephanie not answering her phone. So, we hired a taxi recommended by the airport and headed for the Beach Brick House. The taxi driver could not find the house and Stephanie was still not answering her phone. We were beginning to think we had been scammed and paid all this money up front! Fortunately, we eventually found the house. The doors were locked at the entry so we went to the back beach area and saw someone peeking out the window. He was unaware of our arrival, but upon showing our emails from Jens, he said he would admit us to our villa and notify Jens and Stephanie. This wonderful person, Michel, turned into a true blessing for our entire family. Upon waking in the morning, there was juice and breakfast on the patio waiting for us. Thank you Michel! Stephanie arrived later in the morning & explained we were given the wrong phone number and that is why she didn't answer. During our stay in Barbados, we spent most of our time relaxing on the beach and swimming with the sea turtles. The pictures shown in the advertisement are very accurate. Very close to the water and the home is stunning. The nicest property on this beach. Michel spent time letting us know the events on the island. We also met a local surfer who took us to another beach for a day. We went to Oestins Friday night fish fry, Saturday night went to Karaoke, also a boat tour (the funnest day), a Safari island tour, & excellent restaurants. A grill is provided by the Brick House. We purchased fish/lobster from a fisherman on the beach outside the house. The Brick House provides lounge chairs, umbrellas, snorkeling equipment at no additional charge. The grocery store is a short bus ride away. There is no need to rent a car. A cleaning lady comes as scheduled. We met Jens toward the end of our stay. He is a pleasant person. This is a wonderful property, beautifully landscaped, clean and impeccably maintained. 5 stars on the property, 4 stars due to wrong phone number for Stephanie/arrival issues.
A real gem of a place
We arrived and were met by Jens who spent some considerable time with us explaining all that we needed to know to make our stay as comfortable and relaxing as possible. Jens was a really great host who was on hand if you needed advice. A nice touch was the fresh flowers, 3 banks beers and a bottle of wine in the fridge !
One of the most beautiful spots we have ever stayed in whilst in Barbados. We had the ground floor garden apartment where we would sit and enjoy the view over Carlisle bay. We enjoyed the swimming in lovely calm waters and I would snorkel daily. This is where people come to snorkel and 'swim with turtles'. The turtles were a highlight for me.
Facilities for eating etc are only a walk away. Good supermarkets are available in St Lawrence Gap which is a 1 dollar bus ride away. You do not need a car unless you wish to travel the island sightseeing.
Our one week holiday is at an end now. Both my Wife and I wish we had booked another week. We intend to return as soon as possible.
Many thanks to Jens for making our stay so enjoyable.
very central right on the Beach at Carlislebay, gives you the chance to also witness a bit the local life.
