“Wonderful apartment!” The apartment was comfortable, clean and the kitchen had everything you would need to cook a full meal. The owner was very helpful. Stores, restaurants, the beach, and public transportation are a walkable distance. I would stay there again!
“Family Reunion/Christmas 2012” Shelsea was the perfect place to act as home base for our family members ( 16 of us age12-76) as we celebrated ChristmasNew Years and our return to the island after 4 of us spent 1972 living here! Other family members had rented smaller places that were within walking distance but they were all jealous at how spacious, clean and luxurious Shelsea was. We had a barbeque for Christmas day which was really fun. Dinner on the patio was a wonderful family time. Charile's restaurant just up the lane was perfect for dinner after a long day of driving around the island, a day at the beach or exploring the interior of the island. The beautiful beach down the lane was perfect for an early morning swim/watching the sunset but the kids really enjoyed the bigger waves and the monkeys at Maxwell beach just down the road and the action (and snorkeling) at accra beach ( a 5 min drive) for boogie boarding. Proximity to the Gap kept our teenagers/young adults happy with shopping and nightlife. Everyone looked forward to Fridays for the fish fry and dancing at Oistins. We had a car for the whole 2 weeks but it was not a necessity as the bus is really easy and cheap and taxis, even for large groups are just a call away)
Yvonne, Ron, Paul and Lou made sure we had everything we needed and booking/organizing the rental with Sheila was a breeze.We certainly got our monies worth!!
We highly recommend this location and the island. Everyone is super friendly, very safe, family oriented, the reefs are amazing if you are a diver ( The Dive Shop in Carlisle Bay ), lots of turtles, gorgeous beaches ( spend 2 days at the Crane- my favorite!!). One of the highlights of our trip was "Good Times" catamaran. We chartered the boat for a sunset cruise and we were treated like royalty from the minute they picked us up. Kenneth the captain provided lots of history and general knowledge of beautiful Barbados.
We will be back for Christmas 2015!!!
“Wonderful” We stayed there on the main floor appt with our infant and her grandfather. This was my 3rd trip to Barbados and this location was superb on all accounts and best place I have stayed. Everyone onsite was friendly and coordinating our stay was easy, including arranging a crib for our infant. We had issues with the wireless internet however, the owner of the condo took time and pride to come directly to the unit to resolve the issue. We would definitely recommend Ocean One to anyone!
Thanks for the great accomodations!
