We stayed at 9 Banyan Court. Exactly as described. We love Pebbles beach so this place is perfect, right across the road. Joined the Barbados Cruising Club, great for sun beds, kayaks/paddle boards. Dippers bar is fine for drinks and food.
The pool is great for an early morning swim. The property manager is very helpful if needed. The apartment is well equipped with everything you need from music speaker to snorkels. Brilliant.
Not many local restaurants on the door step but we were happy to walk into Hastings say 20 mins or 5 mins on bus, easy .
The beach is outstanding, calm crystal blue water on a nice day. Hard to beat anywhere on the island in my opinion. Must say, the owner is also super helpful.

The property is accurately described in the listing and in the photos. While there is some road noise - especially evident in the early evening, things really quiet down after 9pm so traffic noise in no way affected our ability to get a good sleep, especially with the A/C on. Carlisle Bay is very close - about a 5 min walk, and we swam with sea turtles literally every day - no need to book a snorkelling excursion - just wait til a turtle pops its head up and run in after it - usually 30-50m from shore. Local restaurants are good, and present a nice variety of take-out options.
Heidi responded promptly to inquires and was very accommodating when we had to cut our trip short for personal reasons. Ann, the local property manager, was absolutely fantastic; she was friendly and helpful.
We highly recommend this rental and hope to return some time in the future for a longer stay.

I recently stayed at Heidi’s place at Banyan Court with a friend while attending a wedding. It was located 5 minutes from the main hotel where most guests were staying, so that was a real plus. The beach was great very near, the water delightful and beautiful.
The apartment was very comfortable and clean. and had everything you need. Air con and fans worked well. Safe area. I would highly recommend the place. The kitchen was a little dated, but everything worked!
The only negative was the lack of good restaurants in the area for breakfast. Not much opens before 10-11 o’clock. Snacks etc available at Sol, a minimart/ gas station just down the street. Fortunately, lots of public transport in to Bridgetown runs along the main road ($3.50 Barbadian). It’s about a 25 min walk or 10 by bus/ minivan.
There is the George Washington Museum nearby ( he stayed there with his brother for a short time) and the nearly BarbAdos Museum was worth the visit. You really must hit Cuz, a fish sandwich snack bar on nearby Pebble Beach. Ate there the first day—- the sandwich and a beer were a perfect first meal in Barbados! Add the pepper sauce! 😀?😀?
Be sure to visit the hilly north end of the island. Beautiful view and cliffs. Very good for those who love photography!
Finally, I must commend Heidi, who always got back to me in a short time both before and during the visit. Would definitely stay there again.

Air conditioning in both bedrooms. Comfortable beds. The kitchen is very well equipped! But not only that, they have beach umbrellas, flippers and mask and snorkels and beach chairs for you to use. You can see the sea from the balcony. A short walk to the beach, to grab a roti or hummous wrap or fish cutter. I highly recommend if you want to stay in an apartment rather than a hotel.

I love this apartment. It is so comfortable and pleasantly put together. It's great to have the 2 bathrooms for 4 guests. The kitchen has everything you need - we cooked there all the time and had cozy dinners on the dining table. The lighting is very good. I also love being on the second floor and sitting out on the porch where you see the bougainvillea growing in the garden below or standing up to see the turquoise sea there by the Yacht Club.
The apartment is located near the corner of Bay street and Chealsea Road so there is road noise, but because of its location, you can walk to Pebbles, to Carlisle Bay, to the Garrison, to the Indian Grill for Rotis, to the corner store and the pharmacy, grab a ZR taxi, it is all very convenient. The pool is a stroll away and we used it when we just wanted a quick cool off and it also has a high-pressure outdoor shower.
The wifi is great and the bedrooms are cooled nicely with A/C for good sleeping. The apartment also has a great assortment of swim and beach gear. It's hard to go wrong!

We had a great time at Banyan Court, where we spend 2 weeks as a family (2 adults and 2 young children). This place is perfect if you are not into luxury hotels and prefer self-catering, so that you can enjoy a more homely feel and more flexibility (not mentioning much cheaper!). The accommodation was just what we needed with special appreciation for: spacious bedrooms and living room, great kitchen with especially good cooker, fridge and appliances, very comfortable beds, mosquito nets on all windows (it was the 1st time in my 6 visits to Barbados that the pesky insects didn't bother me!), good functioning A/C, very clean and quiet pool, and finally great little info folder (much better than google!). The staff was also very helpful and friendly, and we appreciated the fruit & veg van in the car park on Friday morning (discovered by chance!!).
The location was great for us as we had family in the area, and our favorite beach was right around the corner. The kids really enjoyed using all the pool/beach equipment available, especially the bodyboard!
Overall we are very satisfied, and would definitely stay there again... highly recommended!

We spent 10 days in this lovely condo. Nicely furnished, kitchen well stocked, clean. Our king size bed was extremely comfortable, lots of pillows. Air condition works well. Carlisle Bay beaches are a 5 minute walk. Most beautiful beaches of the island, clean crystal waters. We swam with turtles and saw stingrays. No need to rent a car, bus stop in front of the complex, we never waited more than 3 or 4 mins for a bus. Convenient store next to the condo complex is very practical for eggs, milk, even rum! It was nice to have the pool to dip in at the end of a hot day. The owner Heidi is very accessible, easy and quick communications. Had a great time.

We had a good time in this accommodation. The accommodation is spacious, clean and well equipped. You can walk to the beautiful beach in 5 minutes and the center of Bridgetown in 20 minutes.
We thank Mrs Redon for her kindness and patience.
