“Great place to stay!”
Reviewed August 5, 2008

I stayed at Mistle Cove with my aunt and a friend for four days. We were in the country to witness the first DIgicel twenty20 match vs Australia.
I discovered Mistle cove from the barbados.org website which directed us to Rex Realty that rent these condos. The sevice form Rex was beyond expectations from the time of enquiry to the time of departure. Thanks to Orissa n Lauren, perfect customer service! They purchased our cricket tickets before our arrival for us without any extra charge and was very hospitable throughout.
We stayed in room 307, which has everything that you could ever need and more. This place is perfectly situated in the St.Lawrence Gap, surrounded by restaurants and right next to the mini mart, not to mention bars and nightclub literally 2 mins away. The property has a small pool and its own secluded beach. All the balconies look out to the ocean where you can see sea turtles while having your breakfast. The main beach, Dover beach, is just a few mintues walk away. The noise from the Gap do not bother you at all and the property is well secured.
I would gladly recommend this place and would definitely stay here again.

We stayed for a week at Mistle Cove, in the heart of St. Lawrence Gap, Barbados. While the property didn't seem fully booked, it was at least 60% occupied and that still seemed a bit empty. What I'm trying to say is that it was quiet and peaceful. Our unit was tastefully decorated and had EVERYTHING we needed. Jenny, the property manager, seemed to know our every question before we asked it, and she even made a special trip to meet us on a Saturday, even though our flight had been delayed by a few hours.
The grounds were in fantastic shape, the community is gated and has lots of security - no problems there.
In fact, I can't think of a single problem, other than a quirky refridgerator that was fine once we gave it a bit of a rest and restarted it. Jenny said it was scheduled for replacement anyway, so that's likely not even a problem any longer.
We had no pests, no problems with other guests and nothing that could have even remotely could have spoiled our stay.
Yes, the beach at this property is quite small and quite rocky, but a simple swim out and to the left or right got you to a fine sandy bottom and excellent swimming area. Had we walked a few hundred yards to the nearest beach, it would have been even easier. I cannot say enough positive things about the property or the property manager, Jenny. Oh, and finally a shameless plug for great homemade Cheesecake while you are on the island...Call Rachel at Southern Surf (just down the road near Rockley Beach). Yes, it's totally unrelated to this review, but if you try one of her cheesecakes, you'll be writing rave reviews about it as well!

Had a fantastic stay in Barbados at Mistle Cove (Unit 206) - the apartment was very large and had a fully functional kitchen and every home comfort you could think of including a DVD library!

Two big en suite bedrooms (one King, one Twin) and the views from the balcony were stunning. Although we went during quiet season there was still some noise from the main street but we could not hear this when in the apartment. Jenny the apartment manager was so helpful with our car hire, trips, etc.

Highly recommend a stay here, very clean, great location and it was nice to be self catering and have breakfast on the balcony every morning and drinks at night (remember insect spray though, they were lethal!)

Recommend Restaurant at South Sea, Jumbies, Pisces and McBrides for dinner/drinks and go to Crane Beach Hotel for lunch - the view is outstanding.

This was my first trip to Barbados but will not be my last.

We were a group of 6 staying at Mistle Cove in the heart of St. Lawrence Gap. We spent 10 days, the first week in a couple of 2 bedroom units #102 & 309, then for the last 3 days moved to one of the 2 penthouses on the 5th floor.

2 bdrm units beautifully appointed, huge balconies with spectacular sea views. There was a bit of an issue with hot water in the 1st floor unit, luckily we had 2 units and could use the shower in the 3rd floor unit.

Penthouse was huge and accommodated the 6 of us with space to spare. Of course an even more spectacular view from the 5th floor.

Countless restaurants/bars on your doorstep, but no issues with noise!

Street/beach vendors not pushy at all, a polite no thanks will do if not interested.

Toured the island for 4 hours one day with a hired taxi for all 6 of us....$70 BDS each.

Oistins fish fry on Fri/Sat nights at sunset, great food, cheap and alot of fun!

Food vendors every night in the Gap, again cheap and tasty....mmmm.

We stayed at Mistle Cove Condos Unit #205 (which is a 2 bdrm, 2 bath unit) Jan 20-27, 2007. The condo was beautiful, clean and bigger than we anticipated. The master bedroom had a king size bed with a huge bay window that overlooked the ocean and a sliding glass door onto the large balcony. The master bath was very large, with a huge raised soaking tub, sep. shower and 1 sink and toilet. The 2nd bedroom was at the front of the unit and was furnished w/2 twin beds. It had its own generous bath with shower (no tub).
The unit also had a stacked washer/dryer and a well-stocked kitchen (plates, cups, utensils, coffe maker, etc). Fridge was full-sized and there was a small convenient store right next door. The big market was a 20 minute walk and had a shuttle that would return you to the front of the condo when you finished shopping (as part of a regular route).
Their beach was very small, but usable for our 2-yr old to play in the sand--no safe swimming for kids. The pool was also small, but we were the only ones in it at any time during the week.
We walked to all restaurants for dinner; there are about 10 within a 10 minute walk. The big beach was also a 10 minute walk, with beach umbrellas and chaises for rent, a bathroom and snack bars. Perfect water and beautiful sand!!
All in all, a wonderful family (or couples) place to stay!! We'd love to be able to buy a unit here! We'll be back! The only thing we would change would be to arrange our own transportation to and from the airport. We couldn't find the guy who was sent to pick us up on arrival and ended up having to get our own taxi. The guy the condo office got to take us back charged us double what he's allowed to charge when he dropped us off at the airport. I emailed the condo when we returned to let them know. They responded that they would no longer use him or his company and that they had turned him in to authorities (Barbados gov't sets taxi rates).
