“Home from Home with superb hosts”
Reviewed 17 November 2017 for a stay in October 2017

person found this review helpful

We were nicely greeted by the host who showed us the beautiful big garden with all the exotic fruits.

The accommodation was perfect for me and my mother. It was very clean and had all the basic essentials needed. The sheets and towels were washed by the host once a week, and the host offered a complimentary wash of our own clothes. The accommodation was smaller than I expected however it was suitable for us.

The hosts went over and beyond to make our stay pleasant. Charleen (host) gave me her spare phone to use as my phone was not working. She responded to all our needs and was very, very helpful throughout our four weeks stay.

It was our first time visiting Barbados and the hosts made us feel very welcome in their accommodation and we really felt at home. If (when) I return to Barbados I will definitely be looking to rent there again.

Thank you very much Charleen and Rebecca for your hospitality xx

“Wonderful stay for the 2nd time”

I really love the area this apt is in. Super easy access to transportation to get to food stores and or different beaches to explore, yet set in a quite calm area. The apt gets plenty of fresh air and beautiful fruit trees and flowers surround it. Its always clean, safe and relaxing. This is my second stay and I enjoyed it more then before.

“Great Place to stay”

This is a great place to stay. The location is great. There is a beach within 3 mins walk and a small convenience store/restaurant 5 mins walk.
It is also close to a main road.
Leena and Charleen are very responsive to any questions or concerns.
The apt is neat, clean, and very comfortable. The patio is great to sit off and get extra sun or eat outside in fresh air.
I really loved staying here.

“great spot!”
Reviewed 20 June 2016 for a stay in January 2016

person found this review helpful

this review is way overdue as we stayed there in january 2016!! but better late than never :-)

overall the place was great. there were 2 of us and it was enough room for us, but no more. it was great having the back patio for all meals and for evening cocktails :-)

it was close-ish to most things, but not *right* there. but that was also good because it was on a very quiet, dead-end street so there was no noise. except two neighbors with *really* loud dogs :-(

leena and her daughter were very sweet and helpful, and even left us some wine and gifts as both of us celebrated birthdays while there! such a nice touch. there was also some butter in the fridge, and a couple packets of instant coffee, but nothing else so you really do have to buy everything for yourself - sugar, salt, pepper, oil, etc if you plan to cook. it would have been nice if there had just been a few of the basics.

everything was clean and there were ample, and nice, towels! the bed was super comfy and the bedding and pillows soft :-) and there was always enough hot water.

luckily we were there at a time of year when it was not super duper hot all day long and cooled down at night. however, the apartment is very very hot and does not get and ventilation - even with the windows and doors open! there is 1 AC unit in the bedroom that we did not use because it would have been for sleeping and it cooled down enough that we didn't really need it. but if it were a different time of year it would have been unbearably hot inside during the day.

also, my flight back to the states was cancelled and i had to stay 2 extra nights! leena was super flexible with me and very generous - thank you, leena.

overall we had a great stay :-)

We stayed in Leena apt. from 1st to 11 January 2016. The apt. is perfect for a family with a baby. It is very clean and well equipped. The beach is 5 minutes far, easily to reach. The patio is perfect for relaxing, eating or for drinking a coffee after dinner.
Leena, the owner, and Charleen her daugther, have welcome us as a family, they were pleasant and opened to all our inquiries.
It was a pleasure to stay in "Home Away -Charming One Bedroom" we warmly suggest it and we hope to come back in the future.

“A clean, functional and cosy place amongst the best Barbados beaches”
Reviewed 29 December 2015 for a stay in December 2015
1
person found this review helpful

We found the apartment comfortable and service very friendly and helpful, we wanted a reasonable self catering apartment close to the beaches and the airport and it was in a great position on the south coast within easy distance to Bridgetown and numerous beautiful beaches and facilities.
It was within two minutes of Maxwell beach and twenty minutes walk to the beautiful Dover beach with hotels nearby for meals and drinks.
There is a convenience store a short walk away and it is near the main coast where you can travel around by bus, maxi at very affordable prices, also taxis if required.
Nothing was too much trouble for the owner Leena who looked after us and helped us whenever we needed it.
If you want to experience Barbodos a little more relaxed and quietly then this is an excellent way to do that without breaking the bank!
The best thing for us was the privacy and location ...and of course the warm welcome!!

“great owners/okay place”
Reviewed 19 December 2015 for a stay in December 2015

The owners of this unit are really great and try very hard to make their guests happy. They stocked the kitchen up with staples for our arrival and the unit is very clean. If you want something, they will get it for you.

There are three units on this site and the owners live in one. Ours was the back unit with air conditioning and it had a small garden area with table and recliners. Unfortunately the small a/c unit can keep the bedroom nicely cool but to have any influence on the rest of the unit, you need to close all the shutters and it feels like a concrete bunker. If you keep the shutters open, it is extremely hot inside.

The location is good if you want to be in a very quiet area. The beach is very close by and there is rarely anyone else on it.
