We had a great stay at Rosalie number 5.
Great Communication with Simon the owner before and during the stay was very easy, as was payment.
The apartment is wonderful, great value for money as Barbados can be so expensive. This apartment has so much space. The air con in the bedrooms is a blessing at times. There is no air in the open lounge/kitchen/dining room but keeping the shutters open help to keep a breeze going through there.
The caretaker and house keeper were incredibly friendly and helpful, I loved them coming round and spending time talking to them, they even taught me some local recipes.
Overall we loved the apartment, it is a great base to explore the rest of the island. Most of the beachside villas/apartments are based on the main road up the west Coast of the island, so you have to put up with the traffic noise constantly, that is not the case in Atlantic Shores, you are away from the main road so it is lovely and quiet. One of the few beachside areas that is quiet and free from road noise. You just have the sounds of the waves, which are literally 20 feet from your bedroom window.
There is a tiny little beach a two minute walk from the villa which is completely deserted, turn left out the front of villa and walk up the road til you see a little open grassy area - and the sea! - the beach is just beyond the grass.
If you go out the back of the villa, where the sea is, and then take a left and walk along the rocks you will come to silver sands beach, which is also usually deserted.
Miami beach is a short drive back towards Oistins, a nice beach with sunloungers and food van serving snacks and drinks.
My only notes would be:
Kitchen could do with some basic condiments for cooking, as we had to buy salt and pepper and olive oil. Otherwise it is very well stock with crockery.
And the sun loungers could do with cushions as they are a bit uncomfortable to sit out on without them, although they are great quality.
Avoid Chicken Rita's - we arrived late the first night and stumbled upon it by accident. We didn't return...
We would certainly return to this apartment as it is great value for money and a much higher standard than other apartments in Barbados for the same money.
I would definitely stay in Atlantic Shores again, it is only a short drive to wherever you want to go.

"An amazing apartment overlooking the Caribbean Sea"
This apartment in the upmarket area of Atlantic Shores is very impressive in every way. It is very spacious, well equipped and overlooks the stunning Caribbean Sea from a very large balcony. It was so relaxing falling asleep and waking up to the sound and sight of the ocean from the master suite. We even saw turtles swimming from the balcony. Our family have stayed in Barbados many times over the years and Rosalie is the best of the bunch for a very reasonable price in a good location close to many outstanding beaches. I would recommend car hire to explore this stunning island. It is very professionally run and Diana, the housekeeper, was wonderful and looked after us very well. I would without hesitation recommend this apartment 100 per cent as it has everything one would wish for to make your holiday very special.

Simply put, this apartment is breath taking. We have been to the island many times before but we have yet to find somewhere as beautiful as this. The views from the balcony allow you to watch turtles … More

We stayed at Rosalie number 5 for our second trip to barbados. The location is excellent. Only about a 5 minute drive from Miami Beach and 2 minutes from Surfer's Bay beach bar.
Jean was a total star. Very pleasant and helpful. She met us at the airport and was accessible and full of great advice.
The apartment itself was very clean and incredibly well stocked. Coolers were provided to take to the beach which was awesome. The kitchen was fully equipped with everything we needed. The rooms were gorgeous and spacious. And the view from the terrace was spectacular. We ate breakfast every morning looking out on the ocean.
If there was one thing i could change, it would be to have a shower curtain around the lovely tub in the master en suite.
But we just ended up using one of the other bathrooms.
We had a wonderful time and will be returning next year!

We have stayed in Barbados every year for the last ten years but this was the first time we have based ourselves on the South Coast.
Over the years we have stayed in more luxurious properties, and we have stayed in arguably more conveniently located ones, but Rosalie Number Five is without doubt the best value apartment we have stayed in.
The apartment itself is very spacious, well equipped, and exactly as described if not better.
The views are spectacular, and the only noise you can hear is that of the sea. A similar seafront location, in an apartment of this size and quality would be three or four times the price on the West Coast. Ok there is no beach right outside Rosalie, but there is a small one within 400m, and Miami beach (my personal favourite beach on the whole island, and that of my kids) is just 5 minutes in the car so this didn't really bother us (if it had we wouldn't have booked!).
I would say a car is pretty much essential. You could walk to the beaches/shops if you were that way inclined, but a hire car makes everything so much more convenient. Southern Rentals (as recommended by the owner) sorted us out a motor within a couple of hours when we called him from the apartment on arrival, and at a competitive price.
Another recommendation from the owner was "Steve's Bar" although I think it's official name is Surfers Bay Bar. Five minutes walk from the apartment, delightful laid back spot overlooking the sea, friendly staff, cheap-ish drinks (especially during Happy Hour) and decent simple food. A million miles away from some of the posher places on the island, and all the better for it.
Finally the owner of the apartment (Simon) was very helpful, as were his representatives on the island. Everything was stress free and as described which is exactly what you want when on holiday.
If you are looking for a place in the South of Barbados Rosalie Apartment 5 gets a big thumbs up from this very satisfied visitor.

Our family travelled to Barbados to attend a family wedding over Christmas. We have been on many family trips and this was voted hands down as the very best.
The apartment itself is lovely and spacious and has spectacular views of the ocean. We enjoyed the pool every morning following our run along Seaside Drive.
Our 19 year old son loved the surfing at South Point, just a short walk down the road. There is a lovely small beach a short walk away and Miami Beach is a little further (half hour walk) and extremely beautiful for swimming. We bought lots of fresh fish at the Fish Market in Oistins and learned the Bajan way of cooking it. The owner of the apartment and his on-site support team were absolutely fabulous in sharing information, making us feel welcome and ensuring our stay was perfect. We have never returned to the same vacation destination before but are already booked for a return visit to beautiful Barbados and Number 5 Rosalie!!!

"Very romantic setting and great value"
We stayed at Rosalie No. 5 for a week in October at the end of hurricane season. There was a tropical storm passing over for two days during our stay, but other than that the weather was beautiful and… More
Thank you for your review - You appear to have failed to mention the following:
1. We always encourage guestes to rent a car - but utlimately it is the guests choice.
2. We arranged collection from the airport at short notice to accoummadate your lack of arranged travel management at no extra charge.
3. We do not state that there is a/c working in the lounge and being on the sea front there is plenty of breeze from the sea when the doors are open saving you the guest the cost of the power. There is a large ceiling fan in the lounge for dining in.
We note and thank you for your other comments but ultimately it is our holiday home offered for rent at a competative price for its location.
As you are aware we were very accommadating with you regarding payment terms as you were travelling from Australia which you appear to have not mentioned.
