Exceptional, thoroughly enjoyed our stay!
Our family of five, all grown up kids and vacationing from Canada, stayed at #12 Coral Cove at Paynes Bay, Barbados for 5 nights in June, 2018. The owner, Simon, was responsive to my emails and sent detailed info on everything I needed to know in advance of our trip, which was extremely helpful. Once we arrived, the condo turned out better than expected; beautifully decorated, impeccably clean, modern appliances, large bedrooms, large bathrooms for our grown kids was a huge plus, comfortable beds, A/C, and of course, the wonderful 3rd floor balcony tropical view of beach, and turquoise-coloured ocean (no weeds!).
We've vacationed as a family before; but this condo was by far the most comfortable we've had. It is everything as described and more. Lots of towels; pool toys, a few snorkeling masks, and well appointed. The building has 24 hr security, and the guards for morning, evening shifts are friendly and helpful. Like all Bajans we've met, they are warm, welcoming, and happy to share info on entertainment venues, directions, and other tips. The evening guard, James, even called us late one night (he knew we were up as we'd just returned from an evening out) to let us know that a large turtle had made her way onto the beach, dug a spot, and was laying her eggs among the beach chairs; we snuck around and got a few pictures without disturbing her (she was large, wider than a beach chair).
Paynes Bay Beach is one of the better beaches, located beside Sandy Lane Beach. The beaches are open and beachgoers can walk through, visiting hotel restaurants/bars. During our time there, the beach was not busy so it appeared tranquil, clean, and natural, without sharp stones or seaweed. Gentle waves, perfect for lazing around in the ocean. A few kilometers north is the Holetown Marina (Folkestone Marine Park) where glass-bottomed boat tours can be rented along with other water recreation vessels (the operator will come to your beach and pick you up if needed). It's always best to phone ahead first, however. On the waters of Paynes Bay and Sandy Lane, there's an artificial reef (sunken ship) where the bout tour operator can take you for snorkelling and swimming with turtles, then drop you back at your beach.
The housekeeper, Dena, is clean, cheerful, and warm-hearted; my wife felt as though she's known her all her life. She even washes the pillows (not just the cases).
Look forward to staying here again on our next trip to Barbados!
Absolutely lovely oceanfront condo
Coral Cove #12 is unquestionably as wonderful as the description, and the reviews by others. It is pristine both inside and out. The housekeeper, Dena is super efficient, helpful and was a total joy. Simon was extremely easy to work with, as well as very prompt with all correspondence; the booking process, all questions prior to arrival, during the stay, and follow up. There was an issue of construction next door, and Simon responded immediately to resolve our concerns to our satisfaction.
Everyone we had contact with at Coral Cove during our visit was super helpful and efficient.
We sent a grocery shopping list to Simon before our arrival, and everything was stocked, which made our midnight landing easier and less stressful. The on site 24 hour security not only had the keys on our arrival, they helped us up to the unit with our luggage. They also arranged taxis for us each time we needed one, at all hours.
The location was ideal for our needs, very central to the golf (Apes Hill, Sandy Lane, and Royal Westmoreland), the dining (The Tides, The Cliff, Daphnes, Cin Cin), and the spa at Sandy Lane. The property is comfortably and beautifully furnished, with private bathrooms and walk in closets in each spacious bedroom.
Nothing is better than being right on the beach and enjoying the sounds of the ocean - Coral Cove is literally right on Paynes Bay beach, with resort type lounge chairs in the sand, and no hassle of worrying about seat availability. We are very discerning and particular travelers, and usually hesitant to stay in a house/condo instead of a resort, given the high probability of disappointment. In this case, we were delighted that Coral Cove #12 exceeded our expectations. We emphatically and highly recommend this 3BR property for travelers of all types (friends, families, or 3 couples).
Home Away form Home
Coral Cove #12 has become our great escape over the last several years. Open, bright, airy, spacious, we have stayed here with as little as 2 of us and up to 5 of us with room to spare. Steps away from the cerulean blue Caribbean, chaises await you every day. Dena who takes exceptional care of CC #12 is a delight and the security staff headed up by Romeo are both a wonderful asset to staying here. We couldn't nor would we ever consider staying any where other than Coral Cove #12.
Best location on the Island
Sandy Hill beach just steps from back door and Paynes beach a short hike south-- both with wonderful snorkeling and other water sports activities. Bus stop out front takes you one way to Holetown, Speightstown or Bridgetown for $1US pp each way! Unit is clean and spacious. Have cook prepare a meal for the day you arrive. She is excellent cook--rate is reasonable and we ate leftovers for two days! Snorkle gear, floats, beach towels--all in unit.
Hi David, thanks for the review and glad you had a great time and you enjoyed your stay at my apartment.
Just for clarification, the beach which the apartment is on, is Paines Bay and Sandy Lane beach is the next bay along.
Many thanks and regards
Fantastic property in great position on Paynes Bay
Very well presented property right on Paynes Bay and ideal for those who want to be straight on the Beach, but then a couple of floors up and back to privacy. Spotlessly clean and very easy place to stay. All staff very helpful and certainly one that if we head back to Barbados would have no hesitation in looking up again. Simon was very helpful as is a great owner to work with.
Vacation stay was spectacular as always at Coral Cove
Another great trip to Coral Cove. Simon's villa was spectacular. The accommodations were 5 star all the way. Our housekeeper was exactly what you are looking for in someone who can keep the place clean and stay out of our way. We barely noticed she was there. The unit was well decorated and equipped. Coral Cove is made safe and secure by their staff, which is led by Romeo. We will look forward to returning to this villa again in the near future. While there was a small misunderstanding with the arrival date, this error was quickly taken care of in a most judicious way.
As an added bonus on this trip we were blessed with a wonderful meal that was prepared by our housekeeper. Wow, what a meal. We were able to feast for a dinner, lunch, and another lunch with the same meal. We will be doing this again.
Overall, we are in love with the island, Coral Cove, and the people.
