This relatively new 3 bedroom, 2 full bath apartment is plenty spacious for 6 people. The views were amazing, and the local farm life was entertaning to see/hear. We had a very relaxing time away from the more touristy areas, while only a 5 minute drive away from Freights Bay for surfing. De Action surf shop svet us up with a few very reasonably priced boards for the week, as well as Dead or Dread surf shop. We ordered from Chicken Rita's a few times, and it was delicious! Surfers Cafe in Oistins also very good for a dinng out option, we ate lunch there almost everyday. Our first trip to Barbados was a very special one, we are already planning for next year! Very lovely time at Coral Haven!
Excellent accommodation which comfortably caters for 6 people whether you plan to stay in doors, chill on the roof in the plunge pool or chilling on the balcony and enjoying the beautiful breeze. Short distance from beach although driving there is recommended if you are not a fan of walking in the sun. Advantages of accommodation is beautiful breeze, good view of the coast, quiet area and short distance from Airport around 15 minutes. Short distance from bus stop and town. Locals are very friendly and extremely helpful. Host Alison is superb and hospitable. I would recommend Kelvin as a taxi (Alison would be able to give you his number)- he is marvellous and up to take you anywhere anytime at a reasonable price and has a 7 seater. For night entertainment I would recommend Oistins on a Friday for FishFry and St. Lawrence Gap on Tuesday's and weekends which is only 10-15 minutes away from Coral Haven.
The booking process for Coral Haven was great. Manuela was great she met us at the apartment and showed us around. Coral Have was very easy to locate. Getting around weather by car or taxi was very easy. The View from the roof top and balcony was breath taking, The sunset is a must see! The apartment was clean and well kept. Thanks for everything Manuela and we will be back next year.

Really comfortable and spacious, Coral Haven felt very safe, away from the tourist crowds but opposite Chicken Rita's for food and beer, just a short drive to Miami Beach and Oistins, and with a sea view too – we couldn't have wished for better...
This is our second holiday in this apartment, our first holiday was in fact our honeymoon, and 2.5yrs later we decided to come back, that's how good it is.
It's a large, spacious 6 berth place, with 2 bathrooms. 1 is an ensuite to the master bedroom, and that bedroom has air conditioning.
The other 2 double rooms are very spacious with fitted wardrobes.
A separate laundry.
The kitchen is well appointed as is the dining and lounge areas. These are all open plan which is great as it means that everyone can chat and help out together without anyone feeling isolated. Leading off the lounge area are double French doors leading to the balcony with views to the ocean and surrounding countryside.
It's about 10 min drive from the airport, 5 mins to the beach (Enterprise and Miami beach) which have life guards from 9.00am to 5.00pm everyday.
Oistins the fish market, is about 5 mins away which is a great place to go on a Friday night as there are many places selling very tasty fish dishes along with music etc.
In a nut shell, Coral Haven is a great apartment, large, clean and well presented and is situated in quiet residential area of the island.
Well shall be back again.
