Property Description

Attractive upstairs apartment, in beach-side house with communal patio, leading directly onto one of the quietest and most beautiful beaches on the West Coast, with excellent swimming and snorkelling in the crystal waters of the Caribbean. Comprising 2 air-conditioned bedrooms, one with en-suite bathroom, the other with en-suite shower room and washing machine. There is a well-equipped modern kitchen for the chefs among your party. The lovely light sitting room, with stunning views of the Caribbean and the beach, has a cooling breeze blowing through it for most of the year. In essence perfection.

The village shopping centre and supermarket are within easy reach on foot. There are several excellent restaurants nearby, including the world-renowned Cliff. We are 1.5 km away from Sandy Lane and its world-class golf facilities. Waters sports, fishing, and glass-bottomed boats are virtually on the doorstep - and, if requested, many will pick you up from the beach.. For those who don’t wish to hire a car the bus stop is nearby, and the buses run frequently up until 11.30 pm. The apartment has Wifi internet access and on site security.

Little Reef is well situated for multiple activities. From the very beautiful beach, a few short steps away, there is snorkelling on the reef, where you may spot one of the resident turtles, meandering among shoals of brightly coloured fish. Boating and water sport activities are also on offer from operators on the way to the big resorts past Sandy Lane. Fishermen bring their daily catch into Fitts Village, just in front of Jordan's Supermarket, a five-minute walk along the beach.

For those who don’t want to miss the exploits of their favourite team, Wendy’s sports bar is just a couple of minutes away, across the road. Wendy's also have a snack bar. Alternatively there’s the Surfside bar in Holetown (15 minutes away by bus and car), a great spot for being on the beach and watching the footie at the same time. Holetown is also the place to go to if you want a bank, pizza or the larger Massy’s supermarket, which will deliver your shopping if you don't have a car. Holetown also boasts plenty of watering holes and restaurants. Bridgetown and the South Coast are around twenty minutes by car and the buses run regularly.

If you just want to chill out Little Reef’s balcony is a great place for watching the frigate birds wheeling above, maybe a fisherman making a catch, and world go by – and, if you are up early and very, very, lucky you may get a glimpse of a monkey in the nearby shack-shack tree. If you want take a tan back home Little Reef has a lovely sunny patio, or you can take the extra few steps to the beach. At the end of the day there is often nothing better than a walk along the beach or just watching a beautiful sunset and the boats making for home, while you enjoy a sundowner.

Watched the sunset every night from the balcony - couldn’t get any closer to the sea. Would def stay here again, owners very helpful. On a main bus route and close to a basic supermarket . Could sometimes be a little noisy from the traffic, but worth it for the views. A little bit worn but clean . Would recommend this apartment and the side of the island it’s on. Go for it !

Great place to experience Barbados
5/5 Stayed May 2021
Thomas R.San Diego, California
Because of the Covid-19 panic, we had to postpone our visit to Little Reef for one year. Even then, the ever-changing decrees of the Barbados government made it difficult to travel to the island. Richard was very accommodating and flexible, and we finally arrived for our two-week holiday.

The photographs show exactly what the apartment is like: it is directly on the Caribbean Sea. We could hear the surf every day, and we could swim and snorkel right in front of the house.

The people of Barbados are exceptionally friendly. Normally, if a stranger approaches you, they want to sell you something; not true in Barbados. They simply want to say hello and ask if you are enjoying your holiday. Everyone smiles and is quick with an “Alright.”

We could walk a couple blocks inland and, if we were lucky, see a troop of Green monkeys. (We also saw monkeys at Batts Rock Beach, just a short drive away.) A local fellow named George arranged for us to swim with the turtles in Holetown.

Wendy’s Bar is a short walk up the street, where you can get homemade fast-food, plus four beers for BBD$ 10.50. A little farther way is Il Tempio Italian Restaurant, which serves delicious island meals. (We recommend the Tomato Soup.) Jordans’ grocery store is within walking distance, but there is a much larger grocery store in Holetown, about five minutes’ drive north.

The location is great if you like to get away from it all. Even though it’s in “Fitts Village”, there isn’t really much of a village (in terms of shops and things to do). But instead, you end up living like a Bajan.

The apartment itself is not upscale, but it is comfortable. Richard was very quick to accommodate any minor issues (ex. a light went out in the kitchen). There is a washing machine and a line to dry clothes.

Overall, we loved our stay in Little Reef! Thank you again, Richard, for your hospitality!
