“Beautiful view, excellent location and well worth it!”
Reviewed May 9, 2018 for a stay in May 2018

Tim made the booking simple, answered all the questions AND provided a great deal of information regarding rental cars, restaurants etc. Literally 5 minutes after arrival, we got a call from the manager of the condo to explain the wifi and T.V. instructions. Then, a couple of days later she arrived to introduce herself and provide some yummy rum punch.

We absolutely loved our stay at Coral Cove #8. The condo is beautiful and has nice finishes. Kitchen is very well equipped for whatever you could possibly need during your stay. We loved the location and the beach was beautiful. I cannot say enough positive things about it. It definitely exceeded what we had hoped to have while visiting Barbados.

Reviewed April 23, 2018 for a stay in April 2018

If you are looking for a beautiful condo directly on a beautiful beach, you can’t do any better than Life’s a Beach. And the owner is an absolute pleasure to deal with.

“Amazing condo in spectacular location”
Reviewed December 2, 2017 for a stay in November 2017

2 of us rented the apartment for 1 week, the process through tripadvisor, with the owner and rental company was easy and faultless. Having stayed on the West Coast in several hotels we were wary of an apt but will only do it this way going forwards. The apartment has 3 lovely bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and an amazing lounge/kitchen which opens onto a great terrace with sofas, dinning table and to top it off a hot tub! There is a covered parking space, security and the housekeeper were nothing but helpful and considerate, pointing us in the right direction when needed! I’ve arrived home with all clean clothes, due to the housekeepers help!!! Location is great, being able to walk along the beach all the way to Sandy Lane and then the other way to the Cliff! Great restaurants in local proximity and everything you could need, including connies bbq across the road on Thurs, Fri and sat!

What a fantastic holiday in a luxury apartment, better than any hotel!
Thank you Tim!

Waking up to this view from the balcony is something you never tire of - it really is as amazing as the photo.
The apartment is lovely, spacious, clean and well stocked. Beach Towels are provided and there is a hair dryer which all go to saving space in the luggage. Romeo on security, Centerini (the housemaid) and Deborah from the managing agent are all really lovely and can't do enough to help.
My husband loved getting up for an early morning swim, the children aged 8,12 and 15 all enjoyed snorkelling just off shore and swimming with the two turtles, who always seemed to be there, not to mention the huge array of fish. Water sports were available on the beach - the kids tried the Great Big Mabel twice and if we had longer would have tried the water skiing.
Restaurants are plentiful we tried Daphne's, The Beach House, Cin Cin and Lone Star.
A trip to Harrison's Cave is also worth a look but book before you go - apparently locals know you have to do this, the guide books seem to indicate you can just turn up but that's not allowing for the cruise ship tours!
Everyone enjoyed the hot tub - especially nice to watch the sunset from whilst drinking bubbly or a cold beer.
It was really hard saying goodbye to all this! We will be back soon.

We have just returned from a fantastic holiday staying at Coral Cove. The apartment was lovely and catered for all of our needs. Romeo, Cinterini and Deborah were all very helpful and nothing appeared to be too much trouble.
This was our first time to Barbados self catering as we have previously stayed in hotels, but we loved the freedom of being able to visit some of the local restaurants and would thoroughly recommend Sharkeys whose prices are very reasonable and the Mahi Mahi was fantastic. Would also recommend both Daphne's and The Tides restaurants.
We loved the Jacuzzi and spent many an evening in it taking in the lovely views from the balcony (with a glass or two of bubbly!!).
We would thoroughly recommend this and will certainly hope to return in the future.

We've just returned from another wonderful week staying at Life's a Beach. Couldn't ask for a better apartment in a brilliant location. Superbly maintained, Love the fact they have sun loungers and umbrellas already set up on the beach, which lies literally through the garden gate. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this accommodation to anyone looking for the perfect Caribbean getaway.

Lifes a Beach is a beautiful apartment overlooking Paynes Bay, a gorgeous beach with fabulous swimming and snorkeling. The apartment is luxurious and everything you could need is provided. The outside area is beautiful with a sofa's and an armchair, dining table and a Jacuzzi. There is regular housekeeping and Anna who visited us was absolutely lovely. Romeo and Clifton who provided security and management were friendly and helpful, and one of the highlights of our holiday was releasing newly hatched baby turtles into the sea. The water sports on the beach are excellent. Swimming, snorkeling, sailing, paddle boarding and jet skiing. Lots of cruises come in to Paynes Bay during the day as it is very beautiful and a great area for seeing the famous turtles. Whilst we were staying Rhianna came to Sandy Lane apartments ( almost next door) to stay for a weekend, and that weekend the beach was very busy with locals and some paps hoping to spot her. For the most part the beach was really peaceful and great for relaxing. A brilliant holiday and would highly recommend this apartment if you want to treat yourself.
