Forget the South or West coast! Too crowded, too hot, eroding beaches and way too expensive tourist trap. This spacious and clean house is located on the south east part of the island known for its cooling, Atlantic breeze. It's walking distance to the 4 most beautiful, uncrowded beaches. With its rugged, beautiful scenery the quiet and friendly Belair neighborhood is a welcome change from the hustle and bustle of the south and west coasts.
The apartment is on the ground floor of the brand new house. It has a private entrance from the garden, includes a living room, fully equipped kitchen and full bathroom as well as a luxurious outdoor shower with rain shower head.
ADDITIONAL AMENITIES: Access to a wash machine. 2 boogie boards, 2 bikes, 2 yoga matts, cell phone with a local SIM card, beach chairs, safety deposit box, free internet, outdoor brick grill, outdoor hot & cold totally private shower.
The home is located in a quiet residential neighborhood and is a 5 minute walk to the nearest beach. However the best beaches are 15-20 minutes away or 5-10 minutes by car. They include:
- Bottom Bay Beach (our favorite!) - Crane Beach (very popular 5 star hotel, with great views) - Foul Bay Beach - Sam Lords Castle Beach - Plus a few more secret beaches, which we're happy to share with you!
15 minute drive to the airport 20 minutes to Oistins Fish Market or the night life area: St. Lawrence Gap
ACT LIKE A LOCAL: We have been coming to Barbados to many years now and are familiar with the best beaches and sight seeing. We have a map upon request, which highlights the best places to see. There is a small "Belair Variety Store" that has the basic groceries. Large and very well equipped Emerald City Supermarket is at Six Roads, 10 min away.
The location is unique because it is away from the touristy areas of Barbados. Instead you'll find stunning beaches that have very few visitors but plenty of fresh coconuts to eat and drink. :)
Jana is the PERFECT host - so chilled and helpful. Our flight was delayed by five hours but her friend was there waiting for us and took us over in the jeep. She fed us rum and dinner when we arrived and the next day we had a lovely breakfast with her and she took us to some special beaches which were incredible. We used the bikes to cycle to various hot spots including bottom bay. Jana fetched us coconuts (which we left behind by accident! Doh!) and invited us to watch a movie on her patio and projector - sadly we were a bit sunned out and jet lag caught up with us so we couldn't join instead we fell asleep in the wonderful room. The apartment has everything you need and is well serviced by buses too. Would defo recommend :)
Jana was a great host from beginning to end. She was very welcoming and always available for any questions we had. The apartment was clean, neat, and beautiful. It's close to the The Crane beach and hotel so we rode our bikes there. It's out of the way from the hustle and bustle of the city so its a great place to really get away.
Had an amazing time at Jana's place. It's near the best beaches on the island (if you like private, paradise) and easy to get to as from other hot spots on the island like Oistins, Bridgetown and the airport.
Jana is the perfect host, so much fun and super-duper friendly, can't wait to meet her again, perhaps New York next!
All in all we were so happy we chose this apartment, 10/10.
We couldn't stay at Jana bc of construction, but she arranged for us to stay at her friends apartment. Which was beautiful, she was professional and always answered all my questions. It was a pleasure dealing with Jana so helpful via email, and responded to all of our questions.
Unfortunately I couldn't stay at Jana's place due to not correct and in time performed constructional work by building workers …. no problem at all for me! Jana organized for me to stay with friends of her, who have a bed and breakfast in the close neighborhood! It was perfect, the area and beaches gorgeous, a nice clean spacious apartment on my own, 2 dogs and a lovely German host, to whom it was nice to talk to. She was very helpful in good airbnb tradition (which busstop?, where supermarket?,which beaches..touristic attraction etc). Jana was always taking care and stood in contact, to make sure, everything was going well for me!! Thanks again and I hope I can stay in the near future at her home in Barbados and meet her personally!
Jana was very kind, helpful and all in all the perfect host for our trip!
We had a memorable stay at Jana's place! It's a bit far from everything (Oistins, Bridgetown) is you don't rent a car but a nice place to relax and enjoy the beach! The place is really clean and well equiped. We would definetely recommend the place.
Thanks Jana !

Although I did not get the pleasure to personally meet Jana or stay at her place due to construction, Jana was very helpful in making my boyfriends and I accommodations pleasant! She graciously referred us to someone else who she knew very well. It was only a few min away from Janas actual place and down the street from Botom Bay which is known for one of there most beautiful and popular beaches in Barbados. The guest house where Jana recommended us was wonderful and very comfortable! It had everything we needed. We even got the chance to share some lovely moments with there two dogs who from time to time would come by and say hi:) Felt like home which is what I seek for when searching for a place to stay.. I heard nothing but lovely things about Jana; just another reason to come back to Barbados;) hehe... All in all, thank you for taking the time in accommodating us under the circumstances. We both were very pleased and content with Jessicas place:)
