Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Holders Hill - MAHOGANY TREE, #2 Coral Cove

1 or 2 bedroom ground floor condo close to Sandy Lane. Sleep 4 or 5.

This gorgeous 2 bed ground floor apartment opens directly onto the lively & beautiful Paynes Bay Beach and can be rented either as one bedroom or two. The only ground floor apartment in these condos to have stunning sea views from both living area & luxurious master bedroom, it is beautifully furnished with all home comforts including a fully equipped Italian kitchen, 2 luxury en-suites, air-conditioning and ceiling fans, wireless internet, cable TV and 24 hour security. Our fantastic housekeeper, who will be happy to cook for you, is on hand 6 days a week to make your stay truly relaxing.

Swim out to the turtles or simply enjoy a stunning walk to Sandy Lane, the next bay north.

Security: There is a 24 hour security guard on site. The property has a lockable gate to the beach, and electrically operated gates on the road side. The security guards are very helpful, and are responsible for putting out beach chairs and parasols belonging to the apartments.

Apartment Management & Housekeeper: Our managing agents are very reputable and long established on the island. They are always contactable if there should be any queries or problems. A health and safety book with all relevant telephone numbers can be found in the apartment for your perusal.

Our very friendly and helpful housekeeper is also on hand six days per week. She is available to prepare two consecutive meals per day as required. She cleans and makes/changes beds every day and supplies clean towels and linen. She is also happy to launder your own clothes.

The Beach: Although we have our own private sun beds on the beach, please note that no beaches in Barbados are private. Paynes Bay is a lively & popular beach with all water sports available to hire. Simply swim out to snorkel with the turtles, or if you prefer, take a very short boat trip.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Kate! I am sitting on the patio at Coral Cove 2 as I write this. We are enjoying another fab trip and before I got distracted when I return home I wanted to thank you for allowing us to stay again at your lovely apartment. We have already contacted Asha to see about price and availability for next year.

We also wanted to be sure to tell you about what an outstanding job that Romeo is doing. He is so nice and his management of the beach and building is fantastic. He really has been an integral part in making our holiday so special.

Jasmine has also been great. We have enjoyed her cooking and looking after us so well.

Don't want to leave any others out of our feedback- Devon has been great, and the gentleman taking care of the gardening has been great as well. You are really fortunate to have such a top notch staff taking care of your property!

Thanks, again.

Fantastic Girls Vacation Spot!

  • 5 of 5

We rented Karen's place in July 2016, a week before crop over for a girls getaway trip, and had the best time ever! This place is stunning and it's right on the beach, just a few steps away. As four women traveling alone, we always felt safe and secure with a security guard at the front gate ready to accommodate us for booking taxi's or just getting general info. The suite itself was nicely decorated, open, airy and bright. We were greeted by our friendly concierge, Kerrie from Blue Sky Vacations on arrival. She was extremely professional, warm and welcoming and had everything that we needed printed out and neatly arranged for us to go over. We even had a decanter of Barbados Rum as a welcome toast. Jasmine our cook was amazing! She felt like our aunt or mom fussing over us and ready to provide whatever meal we wanted. We just had to let her know and she would write down the ingredients for us, which she could pick up or we could just go a short distance up the road (by bus or walk) to the local grocery store. Either way we were fed very nicely. She would come in the morning at whatever time we needed her to prepare breakfast and lunch. Steven and Romeo the two security guards were exceptional! They were always friendly, and happy to answer any number of questions we had. Romeo even took the time one evening to give us a ride a short distance away to the store, thats how helpful they were!

Our days usually started with going out to the beach (we always had fresh beach towels) then coming back for breakfast and lounging by the private plunge pool for a bit. Even the guys on the beach selling jet skis or paddle board rides were extremely polite and discrete. They didn't pester us, just greeted us daily and politely asked if we were interested today, but then went about their business without any annoyances. I really liked that beach since it was fairly quiet and we always had our beach chairs available.

Riding the local buses were a trip! They were packed, and some loud with music, but always safe to ride. We generally took them to go up to the grocery store and few times to go into Bridgetown.

All in all this was a fantastic choice for a vacation rental. Close enough to town and local shops, but secluded enough for a really nice relaxing vacation. Great for families or couples. We highly, highly recommend staying here, and would love to book this again!.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your excellent review! We are so pleased you had a great trip. Our condo in the Coral Cove development has always been extremely secure and safe - thanks to our brilliant team of security guards. But as you found, they are more than just guards - they are more 'concierge' as they are always keen to help our guests whenever they can. Kerrie, the manager is excellent also, but our regular manager, Zoe, was obviously away on holiday. She is a lovely lady and fantastic at her job too. Hopefully you may meet her one day in the future! Jasmine is a fantastic cook - I hope you managed to try one of her evening meals too. She cooks all types of food, but we love to have her cook local style - and her Bajan curry is to die for! But again, she is more than just a housekeeper - as you say she is like having a 'mom' around - and she has some brilliant stories to tell! I'm pleased you enjoyed the beach - in the summer it can at times be almost deserted! We always strive to keep our apartment in excellent condition and regularly update the decor and soft furnishings. Aside from it being a 'second home' to ourselves, we want our guests to come away having enjoyed a fantastic vacation too. We really do hope you will visit again at The Mahogany Tree - please contact me direct when you want to come again. Kate/Karen x

A Wonderful Holiday

  • 5 of 5

It was our second stay at Coral Cove but our first in Mahogany Tree.

The Apartment was fantastic with everything we needed for our family holiday plus a fantastic view and the pool.

The Apartment itself was spotless and nicely furnished, a home away from home. My wife had a proper break as Jasmine tidied and washed clothes for us so we were free to relax and enjoy ourselves. I would highly recommend the apartment to anyone as its location and beach side location is the best I have stayed in.

The apartments themselves are well located only a short yellow bus ride from all the shops and restaurants, my kids love the buses ! We were also looked after by Romeo who provides security and assistance whenever needed.

All in all we had a wonderful holiday and are looking forward to returning soon.

As amazing as ever!

  • 5 of 5

I'm starting to lose count how many times we've stayed here now, but there is a reason that we keep coming back here and that's because it's Paradise!

The apartment is decorated to such a high standard and it's beautifully kept, if I could steal the bed I would as it's even more comfortable than my own (when is that ever true when you stay away from home?!).

This year we spent a lot of time relaxing on the beach, people watching and drinking rum, the perfect escape from every day life, just what we needed!

Jasmine is so lovely, she took such good care of us and will always find time to have a chat, plus her cooking is amazing, you couldn't wish for a better housekeeper!

The security team who are led by Romeo are always on hand and do so much more than you would expect them to, they really are great!

Everything was perfect and our next booking is already made....November 2014 can't come soon enough! :-)

Thank you!

Owner's Response: Thank you D for all your kind comments. So pleased you had yet another wonderful stay - and for the second time this year! Jasmine is a real gem and we love her too! We also think Romeo, Albert and all the other staff at Coral Cove are just brilliant. Everyone is very much looking forward to welcoming you both back again next year - I think it may be your 8th visit?? Very Best wishes, Kate :)

A Taste of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

THANK YOU for such a wonderful time in “HEAVEN” a/k/a Barbados and for opening up your villa to us. Your villa; Roz; location; everything was PERFECT (even the weather). I had a lot of fun w/ Roz…she even gave us a little cooking lesson. What a great gal she is.

The Villa was everything you described it to be and even more…..the view was breathtaking every morning – afternoon – evening…amazing. Albert, the gardener was very sweet and friendly, not to mention the security…..I never had a worry in the world. And the location – what can I say about literally being steps away from such a gorgeous beach. Every morning we would have our coffee on the patio before eating breakfast and then head to the beach for a long swim to burn some of the calories. The water is crystal clear and refreshing. The plunge pool was wonderful ….. came back from the beach – had lunch and then sat in the pool before heading back to the beach. Came back and enjoyed a few drinks watching the beautiful sunset while hanging in the pool.

Roz made us delicious breakfasts in the morning w/ fresh fruit and the lunches were incredible. I don’t know how she did it but she did. And her calculation for the amount of food was on the money. We asked her to cook one dinner for us, gave her our list and wella – done…what a fabulous meal we had too.

I cannot thank you enough – and think I have found my new “home away from home”!

Heaven!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 7 glorious days in Barbados at this beautiful apartment. There are so many highlights to mention. First, the location can not be beat. The apartment is literally steps from beautiful Paynes Bay beach. As you enter the apartment you see the vista of beach, sea, and sky. Sunsets were beautiful and every evening we had dinner on the patio looking at the water, and hearing the pounding surf. The apartment was spotless, well appointed, and having Roz cook and clean for us was fantastic! The bedrooms were comfortable and baths were of the highest quality finishes. The apartment is nearby to a great restaurant, The Cliff, which we enjoyed as a special "last night" dinner, is close to Sandy Lane for spa appointments and golf, and we found a great walking route for exercise and seeing the monkeys! We would recommend this property to friends ( and have already) and we will be back next year. Thank you so much for making your home available to us!

Location

Nearest Airport
12 Miles
Grantley Adams (Bridgetown)
Nearest Beach
5 Metres

The Mahogany Tree is located on the ground floor of a brand new development on Paynes Bay Beach. Situated within the highly desirable area of St James on the platinum West Coast. Many luxury hotels are close by - Sandy Lane is within walking distance around the next cove, and Tammarind Cove and The House, also on Paynes Bay Beach. The famous Daphnes restaurant is also in easy walking distance on the beach - great for lunch!

There is an excellent swimming area in front of the apartment. Swim out to join the turtles, or snorkel on the reef close by. All water sports are readily available on the beach.

The apartment is very close to the Sandy Lane Golf Club, and Royal Westmoreland is close by.

Holetown is a very short drive where many restaurants, shops, banks, supermarket etc are at hand. Cave Shepherd, Barbados' main department store is close by for duty free shopping.

The capital, Bridgetown is only a short taxi ride. Excellent for duty free shopping.
