We have just returned from two wonderful weeks spent at Lower Swanage, it was all we hoped for and more. The apartment was very spacious, well equipped, plenty of storage space in fact everything we needed.
However once the doors were opened onto the verandah that's when the 'wow' factor really kicked in. We were right on the beach just a few metres from the sea, the views were just stunning. It was just such a perfect setting to sit and soak up the best of the Caribbean.
We were just at the end of the boardwalk which was good for walking and accessed several restaurants, our favourite being Tapas, and in the other direction we could walk along the beach as far the Garrison. The beach was lovely and it was wonderful to swim the in the sea so close to the turtles.
Tina and Philip were very helpful with arranging taxis and booking a rental car and were always on hand if we needed them.
We can't wait to return, definitely the best beach holiday we have had!

Stayed in upper swanage apparent which is the two bed apartment above lower swanage.. fantastic is all I can say.. it was clean and suitably equipped that we wanted for nothing at all. The sea was crystal clear and the sand was clean and amazing... This is what Barbados is about and this is what we had an amazing time in the perfect place... been to Barbados 4 times and will always stay here every time.

“A Wonderful Place to Relax for our 20th Anniversary”

Lower Swanage is such a treat. Everything you need to be able to enjoy an island vacation is all in one place. The kitchen opens on to the fabulous deck that sits right on the sand. The view of the beach is priceless. Being right at the end of the Boardwalk along the South Coast makes this location so easy to get around. If you enjoy exercising, it is so easy to get in an early walk/run. There are restaurants and bars all along to make it easy to access. The beach in front is very shallow yet perfect for cooling down and relaxing. Definitely a place we will return to on our next trip to Barbados. Tina and Philip are wonderful hosts and were always available if we had any questions. Thank you so much for making our trip one to remember!

overall an absolute wonderful experience and Tina & Phillip were excellent in their explanation and orientation at the property. They met us at a known landmark after we arrived and guided us to the property (Lower Swanage) which sat directly on the beach. The villa's large open bay doors and windows allowed for some spectacular views and I would book this property over all the hotels on that island. The villa came equipped with every amenity we would need and even had beach towels. The ease of checking in and out by Phillip and Tina made the first and last day enjoyable without the stress so we can take in every last moment. I will certainly be booking this property when we decide to go back for another visit and I recommend it to all that read this! Enjoy and Thanks Tina & Phillip!!

Just returned from a fantastic holiday, and it was wonderful staying at Lower Swanage.
The location is perfect, right on the beach, just by the end of the Southcoast Boardwalk, so an easy walk to bars, restaurants, supermarkets.
Tina & Philip were very helpful, organising car hire and taxis for us.
We will be coming back to Barbados, and will look to book Lower Swanage, or another of their properties.

Lower Swanage is exactly what my boyfriend and I hoped it would be. We were looking for low key (chattel) cottage on the beach and that's exactly what we got.
The location is fantastic, right off the boardwark and an easy stroll to Accra beach.
Groceries nearby, diving up the road at The Dive Shop, Mullins beach bar 30 minutes north and just a few minutes drive south to The Gap. You can tell we had a rental car (recommended!).
Tina and Philip are extremely responsive and have clearly made an effort to maintain the rental. We found everything we needed in terms of towels and kitchenware.
We loved coming back from our morning dive to enjoy a drink on the porch and either make lunch or head out. We also cooked a few dinners and found everything we needed in the kitchen (lots of pots, decent knives etc).
Most importantly - you honestly couldn't get any closer to the water.
I highly recommend Lower Swanage or neighbouring Beachgate. Can't wait to go back!!!

“A stone skip away from the ocean”

We spent a week in Barbados to attend a friend's wedding and also to celebrate our own five year anneversary. We wanted some place right on the beach, and Lower Swanage offeres exactly that. You can watch the sunset and hear the ocean waves the moment you open the windows.
My husband and I particullary loved the fact that there were a small white sandy area right in front of the property that offers swimming in the ocean capability. So we took the advantage and dipped in the water every day of our stay.
The house itself offeres the basic need of a short stay; the owners are very nice and helped us out a lot when we were having trouble getting to the car rental company. We can tell that the owners put alot of thoughts for their guests. We would definitley rent this place again if we are to make a return trip to Barbados.
