The place is wonderful. Stephen I must say that the apartment is perfect.
I spend five days with my husband and my son
We congratulate you for the place.
Amazing Holidays. Thank you for that!!
The apartment is in a fantastic central position and is perfect for a base to visit all that the North West, North and North East of Barbados has to offer.
The apartment itself was exactly as advertised and is very comfortably but simply decorated with a very homely and relaxing feel and we felt at home from the off.
The air conditioned bedrooms were welcomed to sleep in but the ceiling fans in the rest of the apartment including the balcony were more than enough to create a gentle breeze throughout the daytime to keep you cool.
Steve the owner answered all questions we asked and was a perfect host who called and ensured we were happy with everything and was very personable.
The fantastic balcony verandah area was fantastic for the four of us to have breakfast on in the morning and a rum punch watching the sunset at night and was a great addition to the very comfortable apartment.
The views through the palm trees on the beach, right in front of the apartment was stunning.
We have not used a beach as much or swam so much in the sea for years and this really is a great and relaxing place for all ages.
We made use of the plunge pool and barbecue area which was great to have a relaxing drink on while cooking the tea.
The area is great with access to the local buses outside which come every few minutes and a supermarket and pharmacy right across the road.
Lovely walks along the beach in both directions and many top restaurants in close proximity by bus or taxi.
The local people are really friendly and are not pushy and very relaxed and did not pester you while on the beach.
All in all we can not recommend this apartment, the way it is managed it’s position or the amenities available enough, we have just had a fantastic relaxing family holiday that will be remembered for a long time.
We sold our house in Barbados as we didn’t use it enough. But we still love the island and want to establish a ‘home from home’ in a rental property that we can return to regularly. This was our first trip since selling so we tried three.
Sea Breeze at The Moorings was the second and cheapest of our choices. I am trying hard to feel love for it. We had wanted Sunset (next door) but it was booked so we compromised. But watching the actual sunset through a HUGE tree and looking at their massive sun drenched terrace I have apartment envy.
We were under the impression when we booked that there would be housekeeping – not a cook just a bit of tidying up – while we were here. Well no as we were told slightly abruptly by the young lady who handed over the keys.
We are also accustomed to basic amenities in rentals – washing up liquid (no), salt and pepper (no) but thankfully there was kitchen towel and loo roll – yay! But no coffee machine at all and a whistling kettle for the hob – which didn’t whistle. The fridge was not what I would call clean which was slightly off putting. The duvet didn’t have a cover on it which was totally bizarre. I really think the management haven’t thought this through as a few tweaks and a little more thought about guests needs could raise the bar substantially.
The apartment is clean and modern. It is done in a cheap industrial style which is unusual for the island – that is polished concrete floors and surface conduit for wiring. Quite fun. There is no air-conditioning in the living room which made for rather hot sweaty evenings. The outside furniture is uncomfortable.
Location for the beach is perfect. The supermarket (Jordans) is literally just across the road. And if you wish you can walk to Cin Cin – one of the best restaurants on the west coast.
Right on the main road again (at the back of the apartment) but with the door closed it really wasn’t bad. And on the front balcony the noise of the waves lapping in and the view were both charming.
We stay in fitts every year and this is our first time at the Moorings. It has been renovated to a high standard with a clean and modern feel, the apartment has every thing you need for a comfortable stay. The beach in front of the property is perfect for everything, swimming, snorkelling, turtle spotting and a lovely stretch for walking.
We are close to the supermarket, and ill tempio (a great Italian restaurant and beach bar).
Our seven year old has spent the whole time on the beach or in the plunge pool, which has comfortable chairs and sun loungers for relaxing around.
This property and location really does offer everything you need.
