“Excellent Value” 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.
“Perfect holiday home in fantastic location!” We spend 2 perfect weeks here in January. The house is located in a quiet cul-de-sac very close to Oistins. The house itself is very large and spacious with everything you need including washing machine and microwave etc. The balcony is great and we ate dinner most evening watching the sunset. At the end of the road you can easily catch the minibus taxis to either Dover Beach or Enterprise and it only costs $2. The supermarket is about 10 minutes walk and they have everything you need including a pharmacy.
We have already recommended Seafern to all our friends/family and will definitely be going back as it’s a fantastic house in a perfect location!
