“An appartment of your own by the Caribbean”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2012

My partner and I stayed in the Art Studios for two weeks before Christmas. It is a small group of appartments situated a short walk from the sea through pretty tropical gardens. Each of the appartments is privately owned and the small complex is beautifully looked after by Harry, Audrey and Helena. They have been there years and as well as looking after the appartments they also offer advice to help you get the best out of your stay.

As well as being close to the sea, Holetown itself is only a few metres away with its many restaurants and shops and brilliant transport. There are two sets of buses that run all day and well into the night, the regge buses which are yellow and the blue government run buses. The regge buses are fun and not to be missed - slightly heart stopping on a first journey but one soons gets used to it!

We really enjoyed Holetown as a good base for travelling round the island, which we did. We felt quite safe both during the day and evening. Self catering is easy too as there are a couple of good supermarkets close by and a fish market only a short bus ride away.

The weather is wonderful, not too hot during the day and the evenings only a few degress cooler. Very few clothes needed!! The only thing I would say is that the beach close to the Art Studios is being worn away at quite a pace and to get to the beach one does have to do a slight negotiation over rocks - the Caribbean can be quite lively at times too so this is slightly tricky. The beach is still lovely but don't expect endless miles of white sand.

We loved Barbados and will be going back next year - a wonderful place to go to avoid pre Christmas madness!

Room Tip: All appartments are good.

I stayed at the Art Studios in Holetown for 16 days in June.
They were just the ticket for my son and I. The studios are kept spotlessley clean with wonderful friendly staff. Thanks to Audrey & Harry.
Although the studios are fairly basic we had every thing we needed and for the price I paid was a real bargain. There was no air-con but this didn't really bother us. Nice comfy beds and a large shower, the bonus was being on the first floor where we had a large balcony with table and chairs and a nice breeze. The gardens are beautiful with lots of different flowers, palm trees and monkeys wandering around.
Just a short stroll down a lane to St. James beach and within easy walking distance to the centre of Holetown for bars, restaurants etc.
As it was low season the whole place was very quiet which added to the enjoyment.
Art Studios was a great find and I will be back for sure!
