Casa de Leo Apartments
Reviewed January 30, 2013

back again to Barbados for Christmas and New year. My partner and I adore the Island so much we always stay with Shaun who runs the Casa de Leo apartments. He is soooooooo nice. Nothing is too much trouble. He keeps the apartments so clean and tidy and is always on hand for advice on the best places to go which are easily arranged via him. You are 5minute walk to the local beach, lovely bar to sit, drink and eat and look at the beautiful sea view. You have to experience the Island and definately stay at Casa de Leo where you can lounge in the sun on the grassy grounds or relax in your apartment where you can cook (or not) or off the the local restaurants (my choice) to eat reasonably and comfortably then relax on the beach or explore the island in the beautiful sunshine absolute bliss!!

Room Tip: all the apartments are great

I stayed at Casa De Leo in December for the X-mas and New year period and the atmosphere on the island was fabulous. What made the stay so special was my stay at Casa De Leo. I was debating whether to do the all inclusive hotel experience but I am glad I deviated from my usual inclinations and chose to stay here. I have been to Barbados on many previous occasions and usually stayed at hotels on the west coast. I fancied a change and that change was most welcome! Sean the proprietor was most accomodating and just makes your stay feel special, with his local knowledge of the area and his willingness to go the extra mile to ensure our stay was as relaxing as possible. I stayed in the two bedroom apartment which was spacious, exceptionally clean and had all the facilities a seasoned traveller should expect. The location is close to all the bars and restaurants I like to frequent on first and second street and Surfside beach bar is a good place to visit if you like good food and to watch some sport. No doubt I will be coming again and have told many friends of the exceptional experience I had here.

I had the absolute pleasure of spending my New Year in the beautiful part of the world and Shaun really made my stay extra special suggesting the best places I should eat and visit. The apartment are lovely and far better than staying in the overcrowded and commercialised Hotels close by. The apartment was very clean and comfortable with all the mod cons and a daily cleaner and turn down service. It was 5 minutes from the beach and all the lovely restaurants and bars of Hole town. Staying at Casa de Leo meant that I was able to explore not only the beautiful coast line but the bars and restaurants that I wouldn’t have done if staying at a hotel, the locals were very friendly and arranged boat trips and water sports for me and don’t think that because you’re not staying at a hotel you miss out on the spa treatments I can assure you I spent a very lovely day receiving facials, scrubs and massages at a close by facility that Shaun recommended. There is also access to local facilities at a discount but I preferred the beautiful beach. Shaun was a great host and was very attentive making sure that all the needs were meet and that I had everything I needed and more I certainly will recommend Casa de Leo to anyone I know coming out and I will 100% be back myself very soon I hope.

Just back (July 22) from what I can only describe as a Fabulous location!! A stones throw from the beach, bars, reastaurants and shops. Shaun who runs this very reasonably priced establishment is an absolute gem! He knows the best places to party, relax, eat and experience the islands attractions, nothing was too much trouble for him to arrange for us and everyone is so friendly. My family stayed in the larger apartment which was like a home from home but in daily sunshine and no cleaning! Casa de Leo has it for all age groups, just a perfect location for whatever sort of holiday experience you are looking for - just too lovely not to return.

I stayed here during the lead up to my wedding. The venue was perfect!
A stone throw away from everything, very central!!!!

The owner- Shaun- was incredibly helpful, from booking a taxi to helping with hiring a car he was our man!!
He was friendly and was willing to go the extra mile. Even on the actual day of the wedding he was there at the ready, willing to help with whatever!!

The thing that really did it for me though was when I left the apartments to stay at my hotel (after the wedding) I unfortunately had left a few items. It wasn't a real problem as my family were still there so they could bring my bits back with them.
However Shaun suggested he drive from St James down to where I was in St Philip to give me my bits and pieces!!
That journey was well over an hour away... I declined the offer but the fact that he wanted to really to meant so much to me!! :D
Will defo be back... You're the best Shaun!!! Whooooo :D

I had been looking for a nice relaxing vacation for some time . After reading the reviews i decided to investigate further . I have a very stressful job and wanted to go somewhere hot ,but also somewhere that felt like home .A lot to ask i you might think . Well thats what i thought . Casa De leo is such a place . The perfect place to de-stress . Close enough to Bridgetown by taxi . Also very close to many quiet beaches. Very well appointed and spotless appartment . Managed by a well informed and friendly host (Sean). Will definately return . Check this place out
