“Perfect place to stay to experience all Barbados has to offer!”

Perfect place to stay to experience all Barbados has to offer!

Staying at Island GetAway made for a superb, affordable holiday for us. Yolande, the host, was amazing. She received us personally to the apartment which was spotlessly clean, well-equipped and immaculately presented. The welcome basket of goodies was a wonderful gesture and much appreciated after our long trip. Clearly, it is of great importance to her that guests are comfortable and happy with their stay. Yolande and her associate Gloria are both friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. They were able to provide us with any information we wanted and could give suggestions on everything from dining out to tourist attractions and exactly how to get there.

The location of Island GetAway vacation rental is great. Just a very short stroll to gorgeous beaches which offered us relaxing times in the calm crystal clear ocean and great snorkeling …sometimes with sea turtles. Initially we were considering staying on the South coast of the island but we’re so glad we chose this accommodation near Speightstown instead. It definitely has the better beaches and ocean waters and every convenience you could want…. all within easy walking distance. There are supermarkets, restaurants, a variety of stores, ABMs, bars, the bus terminal, churches, a vegetarian/health juice bar, fresh flavourful fruits and vegetables from street vendors, a fish market, bakeries, even an art Gallery and the Arlington museum which were interesting diversions for us from fun in the sun. We must mention Fisherman’s Pub –the ideal place for tasty authentic Barbadian dishes), Little Bristol Bar – great atmosphere and music, Cheffete - the rotis are delicious and Babbies Cool Spot on the street where we stayed, Archers Lane. This is neighbourhood’s bar is where you can “chill out” with ordinary Barbadians and enjoy refreshing local Banks beer.

Buses run on a street very near to the apartment. So it was very easy to get around... and bus fare to anywhere is actually less than $2usd! The No. 27 bus takes you all along the south coast to the popular St. Lawrence Gap and Oistins Fish Fry. A trip to Oistins Fish Fry on Friday or Saturday night is a must do in order to enjoy local cuisine and fish cooked before your eyes.

Clearly, very affordable accommodation on the West coast/Northwest coast (St. Peter) with all these amenities and more is one of Barbados’ best kept secrets.

Look no further! We highly recommend Island GetAway for your stay. Exceptional value for money, great location. We will definitely be returning to this holiday home.

“EXACTLY what I was looking for!!”
Reviewed 28 June 2019 for a stay in June 2019

As a professional tennis court builder in the Caribbean, I often am looking for nice accomodations for my crews.
"Island GetAway" lived up to all our expectations in providing a very clean, very comfortable "home away from home" for my two foremen working on a private court near Speightstown, Barbados. Yolande, the owner, provided everything as listed and (because of her outgoing nature), would be happy to "go the extra mile" to make certain her guests are very well looked after!
I highly recommend this property to anyone visiting Barbados, whether it be your first visit or your 10th, you'll be happy you chose Island GetAway!

Review for Yolande

Great place, just as described. The whole apartment was immaculate. Yolande was extremely helpful and friendly .

She left us a basket of essentials to get us through coffee/breakfast for the first few days which were were really grateful for. The location is slightly on a backstreet but a great way to see some of 'real' Speightstown as well as being very close to a gorgeous and quiet beach (4min walk is not an exaggeration).

We saw a turtle grazing in the shallows of the sea at the local beach every morning too - definitely take a decent snorkel! Whilst there we visited local spots such as Babby's bar on the same street, and the barbers on Bovell Road, as well as the more mainstream bars and restaurants in Speightstown.

Would highly recommend this apartment. Thanks Yolande!!!

“Bajan Yankee”
Reviewed 22 March 2019 for a stay in March 2019

I talked with the host Yolande on the phone a couple of times before we decided this would be good place to enjoy the rest of my vacation in Barbados. In our conversation because she was so nice I knew this was the place for me. And yes the 2 storied house did not disappoint. On the Inside there is open space with lots of sunshine and tropical breeze all the time. I feel as if I never left home. Everything is neat and clean. comfortables beds, Kitchen table, huge stove with oven, New refrigerator, plenty pots and pans with utensils and towels, WiFi with You Tube and Netflix. On the Outside there is the space to park your hire car if you have one but you do not need one, the bus stop is close. The neighbors are friendly and make you fell safe walking to the beach which is only 6 minutes away. The Queen Street beach has white golden sand and blue water to encourage you to go for a swim or and enjoy a sunset every day. Short walk to Speightstown you can tour the Museum, Shop for fresh fruits and Vegetables, gifts and visit the library..
Get away from the tourist area and stay amongst the people. You can not go wrong at this place. I visited Barclays Park, Silver Sand Beach, Skeete Bay, Bathsheba beach, Brandons Beach and took a dip in the Hot Pot.
Love it.
