“Great place to stay”
Reviewed 31 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

The location of this apartment is perfect, with it being just a few hundred yards from the beach and from everything else that Holetown offers (restaurants, supermarket, bars, and the Limegrove shops). Everything that you can think of needing is provided in the apartment, each apartment is secluded, and the pool is an added bonus.

“Chilling out in Holetown”
Reviewed 26 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

The 2 bed apartment was situated on the ground and first floor in a small block of units surrounding an attractive swimming pool. It had an outside downstairs area attached to the lounge where you can eat and sit in the shade. It also had an upstairs balcony with further seating. The stairs are steep but the apartment has everything you need and is plenty big enough for 4 people albeit there were only 2 of us.

The apartment is in an excellent location just 10 mins walk to many restaurants, the beach and Lime Grove.We didn't need a car as we used the bus or a taxi to get around.

We would thoroughly recommend staying here for those who enjoy chilling out in a great location and getting to meet the locals who were the friendliest bunch of people you could find.

“What a great place”
Reviewed 2 February 2015 for a stay in January 2015

Great apartment with everything you need, even beach chairs! Apartment fully kitted out for self catering but why with so many good restaurants on the 'door step'. Location is idea to walk into Holetown and its great beaches, and the reggie bus stops at the end of the road, a must have experience! Go visit Hunte's garden (by car or taxi) Antony Hunte will offer you a glass of Rum, enjoy his company and stories and his garden is amazing.

“Lovely apartment in Holetown”
Reviewed 31 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

Stayed here in December, apartment was nicely decorated and very close to 1st and 2nd street. Pool was lovely and clean and the other owners were staying whilst we were there and were full of information about the area and where to go (thanks Linda and Margaret!). The apartment was safe although of an evening the round you had to walk down was very dark but I've been to Barbados many times so know it is such a safe island. The check in and check out was done without any problems although be careful to not leave the fans on in the rooms because these use lots of electricity and u will b charged if you go over your allowance!

This was my first time on the west coast and there wasnt really much going on. Priva was shut down and the bars on 1st and 2nd street were always quiet. My personal preference for Bajan atmosphere is the south coast and the gap where I also prefer the beaches however the sea on the west coast is amazingly warm and calm!

If you like the west coast these apartments are perfect as close to a bus stop and the lime grove shopping centre. They are clean and have all the facilities you will need for a self catering holiday.

So pleased you enjoyed your stay at Ixora Marie, and look forward to your return.
In response to the electric costs, the allowance is above the average as you found out once the fans were turned off whilst not in the apartment. The charge was put in place after certain apartments incurred large electric bills from guests leaving air-con units on 24/7 etc.

“Perfect for our visit”
Reviewed 9 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

Its very clean and up to date, upscale property on the edge between historic Holetown and forest . You'll hear frogs at night and might spot a monkey or two in the trees (unless you're in the bedroom with the A/C on.) During the day the rear patio is in shade so its cool, but its steps from the nice pool and the sunny lounge chairs. Its still close to beaches, shopping, nightlife, there's lots to do and a great info package in the rental for first visitors. Life is a bit slower in Barbados; the locals seem really happy, drivers extremely courteous, there is a safe and relaxed vibe. Rental arrangement, transaction, keys, housekeeping etc. all went exactly perfect with no surprises.
