“really nice clean new apartments close to the beach”
Reviewed 14 January 2017 for a stay in December 2016

person found this review helpful

myself and my boyfriend stayed here for 3 weeks over christmas/new years 2016-17.
the owners were really helpful, they were really quick and efficient at replying when we were booking, explaining everything clearly to us. they helped us sort out a taxi from the airport (although we got a bus back as it was much cheaper and just as easy) and allowed us to pay the deposit in our ow currency so we werent left with a surplus of local cash when we left. they were always there if we needed anything and used whatsapp to save us using wracking up a huge phone bill. they also threw a party on christmas eve for all their guests which was a really great night and a lovely gesture for us all away from home. they laid on transport, food and drink for the night and even gave us little presents to take home.
the apartments themselves are still quite new and so everything in it is really clean and good quality. the massive shower is great. gradually over the 3 weeks we were there they kept adding extras like outside seating and sun loungers which was good.
theres a good beach a close distance away, 5 mins down the road, with toilets, showers and a food van (you wont find these on most other beaches) but it does get very busy there.
surfers be aware, you will be at least a 20min walk away from the nearest break (Freights) and will need a bus or car to get to most breaks so its maybe not ideal for that. we were walking nearly 40mins to get to south point to surf some days.
there is a bus station just down the road where you can get to anywhere from easily.
generally we felt safe there. we did have some problems with a few locals pestering us, generally they dont come past the gate at the front though. threaten them with the police and they normally leave. you need to be pretty firm with them.
should also mention it is directly under the flight path and yes planes do fly at night, although they will tell you they dont. at least one does at around 3am!

“Perfect!”
Reviewed 25 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

The booking was easy and done via PayPal with a deposit paid online and the balance on arrival. Sharon also arranged for our transfer from the airport to the apartment for a small fee.

Sharon met us at the apartment with a lovely smile and a warm heart and we were happy to have chosen Villa Mia.

After the preliminaries we settled into our apartment which was roomier than the pictures portrayed. It was airy, bright, clean and immediately felt like home.

The fridge was stocked to the brim with items for breakfast so we didn't have to worry in the morning about looking for food. Everything we could have wanted (bread, butter, milk, tea, coffee, juice) & Free WiFi :). The bedding was super soft and comfortable. We slept well every night! We had all the pots, pans, crockery and utensils we needed.

We stayed a total of 18 days and it was great. It literally is 2 minutes away from Enterprise/Miami Beach. Just walk down to Oistins Main Road and take a left just at the Police Station down a pedestrian path. Voila.

The only thing I would say is that there is NO air conditioning. And whilst there is a ceiling fan in the room, we found we were still hot so we had to rent an additional tower fan for majority of the time. That's the only small gripe.

There is also a DollarWise just opposite where we could find little things we needed to pick up in case of emergency (from $3) and a chicken rotisserie right next door to that. There's also a woman who sells fresh fruit and veg outside the Dollarwise who comes mid afternoon.

For groceries and toiletries/imported goods there is a Massy Supermarket about 15 - 20 mins walk (depending on how hot it is that day) down the Oistins Main Road. If you don't want to walk there is a bus stop near the apartment just after the police station mentioned earlier. It's a $2 ride and takes only 5 minutes. FYI - everywhere is a $2 ride away. Doesn't matter how far you go (Oistins/even Bridgetown), it's always $2. Make sure you have correct fare or you may have to forfeit your change. And don't forget to press the buzzer when you get to your stop cos the drivers play the music loud most times so you can't shout out. The buzzer is your friend (you'll find them near the ceiling of the bus on the sides).

The Oistins Fish Market is also nearby. You actually get to the Fish Market before the Massy supermarket. Fish fry is busiest Fri & Sat but it's open every evening from 5.30 and we went on Sunday. Don't miss it. I would stay at Villa Mia over and over again. It's amazing and great value. Perfect location and close to every amenity you need.

“Villa Mia”
Reviewed 3 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

OMG Villa Mia is amazing, you are so close to the beach and all the wonderful restaurants....you do not even have to hire a car because you are in walking distance to everything and the beauty of it is the price is so cheap for a beautiful place that is importantly (to me that is) so incredibly clean. I would recommend Villa Mia to anyone

My booking response was speedy,friendly,most informative & reliable.
It was amazing staying at this beautiful new, modern , well decorated accommodation.It was like home away from home.
Literally everything is brand spanking new, beds , fridge, microwave, kettle, bullet, pots & pans, the entire decor etc..simply amazing
I felt completely relaxed in the pleasant surroundings with all the WiFi & internet access. With the modern electronic amendments , I was watching my Catch up TV, Netflix, Sky Sports etc
The beach is only 5 mins walk away and on the way you walk by a KFC, Supermarket & Oistins, how cool is that !!
The cost for such an excellent accommodation is exceptionally low cost & will suit from the economy traveler to the big spenders.
Well done Villa Mia.
I recommend all my friends , family and colleagues to book & use Villa Mia when holidaying in beautiful Barbados.
