“A Perfect Place on an Amazing Island”
Reviewed December 20, 2012

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.

We found these apartments very reasonably priced for those travelling on a budget. The hosts Mike & Pepsi are really nice and accomodating, all our needs were catered to. The location is superb for surfing with many rentals and lessons nearby, and local buses are frequent and take only 10 mins to get you to the local swimming beaches, Buses only cost 2 Barbados dollars. We swam at the beach nearest the apartments because we like the waves. Also a 5 min walk to a bar serving meals so we did not have to travel out of Silver Sands for dinner. Shower was spacious. Nicely stocked kitchen. Outdoor shower to rinse off from the beach. The neighborhood was safe enough and there was a local shop to buy food. All around we enjoyed these apartments, felt we made the right decision to stay here and would recommend it to friends.

My wife and I stayed here for three weeks in Jube 2012 in a studio apartment. This comprised a fully equipped kitchen, bed-sitting area, en-suite bathroom and patio overlooking the gardens.

The apartments are situated close to a beach (with a great beach bar) and about 3 minutes walk from the main bus route into Bridgetown. There is a small supermarket about 5 minutes walk away as well.

The apartments are not air-conditrioned, but there is a lovely breeze in this part of the island and you don't really miss it .There are big ceiling fans which coupled with the breeze means there are virtually no mosquitoes.
.
The nearby beaches are great for surfing and water-based activities, but if you want a calm beach with no waves you need to hop on the bus and head to Miami Beach at Oistins or travel a bit further along the coast to Hastings or Carlisle Bay.

We were met at the airport on arrival by Mike and he and his wife Pepsi were very helpful to us during our stay.

Room Tip: The one-bed apartment is slightly more "private" but all rooms are east facing and benefit...

we stayed at mike and pepsi's one bedroom apt., for 5 days; we came for my god-daughter's wedding last month - may - and we had a wonderful time; mike organised for us to get a rental at the airport, which was quite reasonable, and it was so useful, as the distance from the church to the reception was quite out of the way. five days went by so quickly, but my family and i had a grand time; the apartment was quite comfy for the four of us, and our hosts were very accomodating; we would love to visit again; hopefully in the near future. Thanks mike and pepsi for everything - God Bless!

We stayed 10 days at Mike's place and it was perfect. We came to Barbados for kitesurfing and surfing. Wind was each day for 12 kite as this was low season. Apartments located in fantastic place: beach just around the corner, kitesurfing spot 10 minutes walking distance, surfing spot around 30 minutes walking distance. Highly recommend to have a walk to surfers point, as path is beautiful. Apartments very cosy, clean, fully equipped with more than everything you need. Mike is very nice and helpful person, interesting to have chat with. We're going back for longer stay next or the year after, for sure!

We spent two weeks at Mike's place in April. Just wanted to say "thank you" once again to Mike and Pepsi. It was a pleasure to meet you and to share this time at your place. We traveled with our little daughter, so we needed a quite place with a good location, beach nearby and a sho to buy meal and items in case of necesary. We found all in one at Mikes, so we just decided to stay there for all our stay. If you go to Barbados, want to see local people life and enjoy your stay in a quite, clean place - Just contact Mike. We will see you soon my firend, I want to continue to discover Barbados and to share more time with you and Pepsi again. Regards from Argentina!

Hey there!
Wes stayed at Mike´s for about 10 Days (09. April – 20 April) and it was the best decision we´ve ever made. Mike and his wife Pepsi are very helpful and friendly hosts and answered every question we had. Mike was very helpful with booking some Surf lessons for us and gave good advises for things to do and see on the Island. The Apartment is a very good value for your money!

Mike picked us up at the Airport and also brought us back on our way home. That made it very easy for us. The Apartment is located south and about 10-15 min drive away from the Airport. It is not necessary to rent a car but if you want, it sure is an advantage sometimes. The Bus station is about 5-10 Minutes walking distance from the Apartment and this Bus takes you to Bridgetown (abt 25 min drive – depends on traffic) via Oistins and other places and from Bridgetown there are Busses to everywhere :) Everything for 2 Bajan Dollars (abt 1 USD) each Bus you ride.

About 100 Meters away from the Apartment you´ll find the Sea ;) and a small Beach and within 3 min walking distance there is a really nice Bar with friendly Staff! Also about 5-10 minutes walking you´ll find a small shop in case you ran out of juice or bread.

In Mike´s Apartments you´ll find everything you need! Towels, Sheets, Music, Tv, Dishes, Forks, Spoons, Knifes, Potts and Pans, Toaster, Fridge everything! And the best thing it´s clean and comfy! And they also offer WIFI.

We will definitely come back as soon as possible! And for sure we gonna stay with Mike and Pepsi!!

All the best!!
Greetings from Vienna!
