OUTSTANDING!!!! My wife and I stayed here for 8 nights in February, we honestly can't wait to return. The apartment is exactly what is advertised however in person it's even more amazing. All the furniture and layout were nicely placed giving the feel of a penthouse suit. Coral polished stone floors, vaulted wood ceilings, and a beautiful granite counter top bar with a well equipped kitchen. A large stone tiled shower was also a very well thought out design. The bedrooms were nicely furnished with AC units that worked well. The living room featured windows wrapping around the entire unit that allowed the steady oceans breeze to cool the apartment. The entire unit was very well decorated with class. The balcony just off the living room looks out over the beach and adjacent Public Park. The oceans edge was only a few steps from the property. Kitesurfing is the main attraction at "de action" beach however swimming there was fine as long as you understand small waves and current. The steady winds and waves breaking on the outside reef are simply a kitesurfers dream! Close by are also many paddle surf breaks. The Surfers Bay Beach Bar, in our opinion was the go to place with great food and entertainment and is only a few minutes’ walk. As well just around the block from the apartment there is a small corner store where you can get basic groceries. Close by bus or car rental is the lively town of Oistins where there are many shopping options and the local traditional Friday night fish fry. Over all the apartment, the location, the vibe and the attitude of locals were sincerely refreshing with kindness. The hosts, Cheron and Walwen welcomed us with heartfull kindness that immediately formed a friendship, by the end of our stay a bond. I can't say enough about the extended hospitality the hosts honestly displayed, we felt like we made Bajan friends. Much respect to this apartment rental, the hosts and Barbados in all! A great place we will certainly return to again and again.

My wife and I just got back from a wonderful vacation on Barbados and we stayed at Coconut Walk Apartment. What a great place! I don’t want to make this too long but I will try to include as many details as possible.
The apartment is on the South Shore where all the kite surfing happens. You can see beautiful white-capped waves from the balcony as well as a public park with wind-swept trees. Nice view and great breezes! We didn’t rent a car, but you can pick up the ZR Vans (Reggae Vans!) right by Douglas Market around the corner. For $2 Barbadian, they can take you to Oistins and all the way into Bridgetown! We were able to get around very easily and inexpensively. This is not in a touristy location so we got to hang with the locals who were all very nice. We were there in August and an island-wide football (soccer) tournament was happening right next door! Every other night or so there was a game and concession stands were set up with beer, liquor, and food available for purchase. Get the fried chicken and fish cakes from Michelle! It was SO GOOD we went back 3 times! Plus, we got to watch some pretty good football.
What is in walking distance? Douglas Market is within walking distance (3 minutes) for small food items as well as ice, beer, liquor, etc. Surfer’s Bay Beach Bar (12 minute walk) had great food and drinks and a perfect spot for a dinner close to home. The rest of the South Shore is available to you by a quick ride in a Reggae Van!
Cheron and Walwen are wonderful, kind, and beautiful people. They both went out of their way to make sure we had a great time in the apartment as well as all of Barbados! From arranging our arrival and departure transportation, to giving us suggestions of what to see, to even just having an enjoyable conversation, these people are the BEST! They treated us like family and it made for a great stay.
The pictures sum it up perfectly. What you see is what you get. It’s a two-bedroom apartment on the second floor with a fantastic balcony. Open floor plan in the main room with granite counter tops in the kitchen, as well as a breakfast bar for eating or just hanging out! One of the highlights are the beautiful and really high ceilings. Very clean, well kept, and like new! AC in the bedrooms is awesome for sleeping. The bathroom is really big with an impeccable shower. The kitchen has everything you need including a full size oven, fridge, microwave, etc. The Wi-Fi was reliable and really strong which was great for sending messages back home. It’s a beautiful place in a beautiful location.
We had such a great vacation here. Everything was perfection. I will never stay anywhere else when I am on Barbados. If you choose to stay here, I am betting you will feel the same!
Thank you Cheron and Walwen for a magnificent vacation!
