“You must stay here accomodation has everything you could wish for,lovely swimming pool and gardens.”
Reviewed October 8, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

We Met Barbara and she kindly showed us around the Garden Apartment which is equipped with everything you could wish for. The swimming pool is lovely and the gardens with the beautiful flowers are gorgeous. Barbara is very friendly and approachable and very kindly helped us with any questions we had about the Island as it was our first time in Barbados. We would most defiantly be booking to come and stay here again.

Thank you Barbara and Beannie, we will see you soon.

Love from Lisa And Neil xxxx

“Perfect Relaxing Oasis”
Reviewed July 25, 2017 for a stay in January 2017

We had the pleasure of staying in Barbara's garden apartment with the pool (Diamond Oasis) in January this year for 3 glorious weeks.It is a 10 minute walk into the main shopping/beach area where you will find a supermarket and numerous eating options and bars.
There is everything supplied in the apartment that a family/couple or friends need including beach towels etc. Barbara is always contactable if you have any queries, she is a lovely friendly lady and welcomed us like family.
The apartment is located in a quiet residential area and we found the area safe to walk around at all times with no issues everyone we met was friendly and always happy to chat.We didn't hire a car but used local taxis or walked.
We have booked again for 3 weeks this December into January and are already counting down to being beside the pool.
Thank you Barbara for a brilliant relaxing holiday

“brilliant apartment in good location”
Reviewed April 16, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

Having recently returned from a 2week stay at Diamond Oasis we found the apartment to be large and spacious with all the amenities anyone could need. The location is in a quiet residential area within a 10minute walk of the beach or Holetown shops and restaurants.
The apartment itself is in a private and peaceful location with beautiful garden and pool right outside your door to sit out and relax in, or have a cooling swim.
This was our 3rd stay in Barbados and we had a great relaxing holiday. If we were to return to this lovely island in the future we would certainly try to book this apartment due to its lovely convenient position and its most welcoming owner Barbara.
Thanks once again Barbara

“a lovely spacious apartment in a quiet location”
Reviewed April 21, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

This was our fourth visit to the beautiful West Coast of Barbados and as we were staying for five weeks we realised that we needed space. So after lots of research we chose the Diamond Oasis Upper apartment. This is a large house, owned by the lovely local lady Barbara, which is divided into three properties. Barbara lives in the main part of the house and then there is a garden apartment with its own pool, pergola and garden to the right and the upper apartment to the left with its own terrace and plunge pool.
The house is located on a small estate of similar large properties, a couple of hundred metres off the main beach road at Holetown.
As we were there for so long we chose to rent a car which enabled us to pop up and down to the beach, supermarket, restaurants and also do lots of trips around the island. I suppose if you were staying short term you could get away without hiring a car. The walk down to town is fine but perhaps a bit hairy on the way back at night?
The apartment itself is extremely comfortable with a double and twin bedrooms, two shower rooms, lounge and dining area, a small kitchen that somehow includes an enormous fridge/freezer, oven, hob, microwave etc. Both wardrobes have a pile of excellent quality towels including beach towels. And a big treat, a Whirlpool washer and separate drier that I wanted to take home with me.
All fittings are of excellent quality and the apartment has a lovely atmosphere, cool and breezy.
We had five fab weeks, peace and space, and our weekly rental figure was the same as one night in a 5 star.
There are fly screens at all windows but we only saw one mosquito the entire time and sat with the terrace doors open at night with a lit citronella candle.
Look out, in the morning, for families of green tailed monkeys hopping under and over the adjoining garden fences and just marvel at the colourful view.
TV is available but there are few channels. Wifi during out stay was patchy but I know that Barbara is fixing that.

“Beautiful apartment in a good location”

The apartment was spacious and had a beautiful private pool.
Barbara was very accommodating and picked us up from the airport on the day of arrival as well as being there for advice whenever we needed it.
We wanted somewhere quiet and private, the apartment was in a beautiful affluent part of the island and we had total privacy throughout our stay.
I do recommend renting a car to explore the island as there is so much to see both in terms of wild life, beautiful beaches and to explore some of the local bars/restaurants in the evening....however most of the up market venues and beaches are within walking distance from this apartment.

“Lovely Honeymoon”
Reviewed August 21, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

person found this review helpful

We stayed in the lower Diamond Oasis apartment for a fortnight in July/August this year. It was our honeymoon so we wanted somewhere private and comfortable.

The apartment was huge! It has a great shower, US freeview/sky channels on the TV, WiFi and really comfy living and dining areas. The bed was great and the air con in the bedroom worked really well so we had great sleep.

Barbara was amazing - she collected us from the airport when we arrived and was on hand throughout our stay if we needed anything. We were sorry not to see her to say goodbye when we left.

The apartment is a 10 minute walk from Holetown which is fine during the day, but there's no pavement so you wouldn't want to walk it at night. We didn't hire a car, instead we took the bus around, but it would be convenient to have your own transport.

We had a lovely stay and would really recommend it as a great alternative to the nearby hotels.

“Diamond Oasis 2 - Excellent Apartment & Host”

We have just returned from a fantastic holiday in Barbados. Barbara picked us up from the airport and was more than happy to wait for us whilst we went to the supermarket to buy the essentials. We stayed in the upper apartment which was lovely and had everything we needed. The walk to Holetown and the beach during the day was not a problem, but at night we had to get a taxi back (BBD$20) as the road to the apartment was quite dark without pavements. I would recommend that a car is hired to have a good look around the island. I will definitely be returning to stay at Diamond Oasis next year!
