“Hidden Gem”

Tucked away in a South Coast residential area with the ocean behind it, Rosalie Apt 5 met all our expectations.

A spacious kitchen/dining/living area was well appointed with all that you might need to prepare & serve your own food (just need to get your own condiments like cooking oil which i expected). There is no a/c in these areas, just a ceiling fan. On a wet day it can get hot as windows/doors must be closed but at any other time, the strong sea breezes are sufficient to keep cool.

The 2 main bedrooms we used were of a generous size, the master having ocean views, separate dressing area & the only bath. If you havent drawn straws, make sure you get through the door first to lay claim to it as the view is to die for. Just be prepared with ear plugs if you are a light sleeper as the ocean can be heard, as well as eye shades if the sunlight affects you in the morning (as the curtains are a bit sheer). I used both and would do so again just to be in this room.

The pool/jacuzzi are both suitable for children, particularly when using swim vest/arm bands. We met a few other people by the pool, though not especially busy as only 6 apartments in the block, and it became a place to socialise in the morning before heading out.

Notwithstanding travelling with a 4 yr old, & as someone who walks back home, I wouldn't have wanted to walk the distance to the nearest beach/shops in Oistins under the Barbados sun & its still a bit of a walk to the nearest bus stop on the ZR (mini van style bus) no 11 route, though you can hail them to stop anywhere. They do run frequently & will take you past Oistins & into the capital Bridgetown. We hired a car before arriving, good for short hops & touring the island which is safe & easy to do. If not driving be prepared to get taxis as necessary.

There is a surfers bar, aka "our local", about 5 mins away. Just go right out the front to towards the house at the end & there is a trail across the grass (as if following the coast line). Be warned, the sun goes down early about 6.30pm or so, so it will be dark on your return & there are no lights. We used the moon as our guide which was big & bright.

In all, arranging our stay was easy and it was nice to be met at the airport by Jean who, along with her family, helps look after you during your stay. We thoroughly enjoyed our trip.

“Beautiful Southern Barbados apartment”
Reviewed June 6, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

This apartment is a delight to rent. With breath-taking views of the ocean and your own very large balcony furnished with dining table, chairs and easy chairs to enable you to enjoy breakfast, lunch or indeed any meal of the day there's the added thrill of doing some turtle-spotting as these lovely creatures swim very close to the shoreline. The flat is elegantly furnished, equipped with everything you need for your stay: plenty of towels for the bathroom and the pool, cushions for the pool loungers, bedroom air-con; huge wardrobes, plenty of drawer space; powerful showers (!) and a kitchen that offers pretty much everything you might possibly need if you decide to cook at home (which we did quite frequently). The shared pool is small yet safe for children. The jacuzzi is a great treat on a boiling hot day. The garden door leading out to the sea is a bit of a hidden delight. Whilst there is no beach outside the apartment you can walk for a short distance over the coral walk-way to enjoy the view. Just wear stout shoes as the coral is sharp. The really good find for us on arrival is that Apartment Rosalie is within easy walking distance of the very laid-back Surfers’ Bar, which offers a good selection of burgers, rotis, salads, local fish, ice cream, cocktails and drinks, just what you need after a long-haul flight. Oistins is a short drive from the apartment, filled with fish cafes, bars and local vendors offering a fine selection of local fruit, vegetables, cakes and bread. Parking wasn’t an issue for us but this was the beginning of the low season. Enterprise Beach (also referred to as Miami Beach) is within easy driving distance and definitely worth a visit if you love to jump the big waves. Mr Delicious’ takeaway food van at this beach is also worth a visit for the fish cakes and the sugar cake, something of a talking point of our holiday! Finally, a big thank-you to Jean for guiding us from and to the airport and for being at the end of the phone; to Melissa for her local dining recommendations (Granny’s was an absolute treat) and to the whole team for keeping the place super clean during our stay. We really hope to be back to Rosalie later in 2016.

On this trip we also took a friend and my eldest daughter, with such a mixed group we needed space and this apartment provided that and more.

We had a completely fabulous holiday, did not want to leave!! This was one of our best visits to Barbados due to your fabulous apartment, we absolutely loved staying there and will definitely recommend Rosalie to our friends and colleagues as one of the best places to stay and hope to rebook with you next year if the place is available.

Your staff are amazing, accommodating and friendly, a credit to you.

The view was amazing and the sound of the sea each day is missed now we are home. 
Atlantic Shores is the perfect location for getting the best cooling breezes morning, afternoon and evening, use of the 'ac' was minimal as all you need to do is open the doors.

The apartment had everything we could possibly need and more, we wanted for nothing.

We liked everything xxx

Till next time x

“Fabulous peaceful holiday”

If you want accommodation with lots of space and a wonderful view of the ocean this is it. From Jean meeting us at the airport which was a great start to the holiday & all the sunshine what more could you possible want. WeI arrived at the flat to be greeted by a warm welcome from Diane who would be looking after all our wants & needs. The beds which are important to ones body were extremely comfortable and everyone had a great sleep. If you don't like walking then I would recommend maybe hiring a self drive or you can hire Ralph and he will pick you up. If you happen to get hungry and you don't want to cook then go for a meal at Steve's bar which is roughly a 5 min walk from the apartment.
