We enjoyed our stay at the Rose Garden Apt. #1. Upon our arrival, Mark, Mandy & Ben (their lovable dog) greeted us and gave us a tour of the apt. We mentioned that we wanted to go to a store to pick up some groceries and Mark graciously took us to the supermarket. The apartment in a residential neighborhood, situated away from the busy main streets, but close to all the amenities. It's about a 5 minute walk to Rockley beach and to Quayside Centre, a shopping center where you can find a convenience store that also sells produce and food products, an ice cream store, restaurants, and a sports bar. We took public transportation to/from Oistins for the Friday fish fry and it was easy to catch a bus or van on the coastal road. The ride was about 15 minutes. Public transportation to Bridgetown was also about 15 minutes.
The apartment itself is just like it's pictured. Plenty of towels are provided, the TV has a ton of channels, and the air conditioning is cold. The kitchen/dining room is large and let us prepare and eat our own food conveniently. The porch is also great for just hanging out.
Mark and Mandy were super friendly hosts and invited us to have drinks on their porch and even to watch Game of Thrones since episodes were airing while we were there. We felt like were were longtime friends almost immediately. We definitely recommend staying here if you're looking for somewhere central to stay on the southwest coast of Barbados.
We had a great time. The apartment was pretty big and they were nice enough to furnish it with toiletries. It was only a short walk to Rockley/Accra beach which is one of the nicest beaches on the island. Our hosts were really helpful and nice. Would definitely recommend to anyone traveling to Barbados.
Great spot for a great price. Mark and Mandy were so gracious--our flight got in in the middle of the night and they waited up for us, and we left late and they let us check out late, far past the check-out time. Place was very clean, bright, and comfortable.
Loved the Rockley Beach and the Rockley Beach neighborhood. The beach and boardwalk are beautiful, and lots of good restaurants and markets around. Just keep in mind that it is about a ten-minute walk into town in traffic, so wear good shoes and keep an eye out.
Great place in a great town.
This was the best decision we made. Mark and Mandy are fantastic hosts who have done a great job to create a comfortable atmosphere to their rooms. We stayed in Apartment 2, it was everything that it was presented as. We felt quite at home there as it gave us all the amenities we have at home (TV, wifi, A/C, etc), this helped as I had to work while I was there. It is very close to the beach, just a hop, skip and a jump from Accra beach but also a number of grocery stores, restaurants, and shops, in addition to the main coastal road that you can grab transportation, such as public bus, ZR minivan shuttle buses and regular taxis. This was the first time I used AirBnB, and I can only hope that the rest of my stays elsewhere are as fantastic as this. Thanks again Mark and Mandy.
My boyfriend and I had the most wonderful time staying in the apartment. After spending two months on the island prior to my two week stay in this apartment, I can assure any visitors that this is a prime location: easy bus journeys into Bridgetown, to St Lawrence's Gap and to Oistins and within walking distance are several beaches, bars and restaurants. The apartment itself was great: a perfect size, with a comfy bed, well-equipped kitchen, AC, and (the highlight of my boyfriend's holiday) a fan. He in fact asked me to write the review solely on how much he loved the fan. The apartment was clean and bright, with a lovely selection of novels on the bookcase and beautifully decorated. Overall, a faultless stay chez Mandy and Mark - thank you both very much!
Mark and Mandy were wonderful hosts.
Very lovely people. Booking very simple and non-bureaucratic. We could let our luggage even to the eveningt in the room upon our departure.
The location of the apartment is also very good. Within a few minutes you are on Accra beach. A wide beach with little surf.
The other beaches can be reached easily and quickly by taxi (2 BDS) or rental car.
The apartment is spacious, with its own kitchen and bathroom. And the covered terrace invites you to drink a bottle of Mount Gay Rum ;-).
A great place to stay that I would recommend any time.
