My girlfriend and I are both graduate students, so we were on a bit of a budget for our surf trip to Barbados. Therefore, we were truly blessed to have found Mike’s Apartments, as he offers quality, clean, and safe accommodations at a bargain price. Furthermore, Mike and Pepsi are both friendly and gracious, and they’ll help streamline your vacation. They helped us with our airport transfer, rental car, and catamaran excursion. For an avid surfer like myself, Mike’s Apartments is in the perfect location. Breaks like Surfer’s Point and South Point are only a few minutes away. Mike is a seasoned windsurfer with lots of ocean knowledge and he’ll be happy to recommend the best breaks based on the day’s conditions. To end your day in paradise, there are two great bars—Surfers Bay and Pirates Tavern—within walking distance of Mike’s. Also, there are a few small markets for your shopping needs. While Mike’s Apartments is definitely not for bourgeois vacationers seeking fancy hotel lobbies and posh accommodations, it’s hands down the best option on the island for the more down to earth traveler. We hope to get back to the island one day and when we do, we’ll be sure to stay at Mike’s.
