We have just returned from a fantastic holiday in Barbados. Barbara picked us up from the airport and was more than happy to wait for us whilst we went to the supermarket to buy the essentials. We stayed in the upper apartment which was lovely and had everything we needed. The walk to Holetown and the beach during the day was not a problem, but at night we had to get a taxi back (BBD$20) as the road to the apartment was quite dark without pavements. I would recommend that a car is hired to have a good look around the island. I will definitely be returning to stay at Diamond Oasis next year!

We stayed in Diamond Oasis 2, the upper apartment! Barbara was brilliant, she picked us up from the airport & waited for us whilst we got a few essentials from the supermarket. She was a great & always willing to help! The apartment was lovely & had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. It is in a very peaceful location, within easy walking distance to Holetown & the beach during the hours of daylight. I would recommend hiring a car however, as we were slightly limited in the evenings due to the location, but this wasn't a huge problem, as taxis are easily available. We will definitely be going back to Barbados & Diamond Oasis soon!
What can I say that hasn't been been said before about the Diamond Oasis, we just loved it.
From the moment we were met at the airport by the wonderful Barbara we absolutely loved our time at this lovely tranquil OASIS even if we did have a fair bit of rain.
The accomodation has everything you could possibly need including separate washer and dryers and dishwasher, just everything is there for your convenience.The private pool is a lovely size and has good sized gazebo for when you get some rain.
It is approx 10 minutes walk downhill to the centre of Holetown and roughly 20 on the way back.
It's a shame we never got to meet Desmond as he was visiting family in the US but Barbara more than made up for this with her lovely hospitality.

A fabulous 2 bed apartment just outside Holetown. This is our 3rd visit to Barbara and Desmond's Oasis and we will return. The apartment is in Halcyan Heights a car or Taxi is recommended, although it is an easy walk down into Holetown and an easy taxi back. Everything you need with great hosts. I cannot find fault with anything.
Have just returned from a wonderful stay with the fantastically hospitable Barbara and Desmond Braithwaite.
Our apartment was comfortable, stylish and fully equipped. Choice of sun or shade at the pool and a large barbecue. We stayed in both apartments as a family and benefitted from the run of the whole of Barbara's beautiful garden which also hosted humming birds and butterflies aplenty.
10 minutes walk/2 minutes drive from all the attractions of Holetown our uphill location provided a welcome breeze.
Barbara and Desmond are available but unobtrusive...always on hand if needed. An added attraction for me were the vigilant (protective but docile) Beanie and Sheba who add to the feeling of security and also ensure no pesky monkeys invade our little oasis....they have their own self contained area.
A wonderful relaxing experience.....I'll be back!!
