“Very nice apartment with great west coast view and location.”

The apartment was very nice and spacious. It had very nice views of the sea along with the sunset. It was centrally located for ease into Holestown and Bridgetown. We were a bit disappointed that there were no portable beach chairs to travel around the island with.

“Highly recommend Coralita”
Reviewed 23 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

people found this review helpful

I can't rate Coralita, Barbados highly enough for either couples or small families with children 6+.

This is our second time in the same location and it was great to see after two years it is exactly the same. Fantastic near by beach for the family directly accessible via a short walk along the road to Batts Rock park. For the more adventurous, you can use the carved steps at the front of the apartment during LOW tide and a short walk along the small beach to the main beach - foot wear for the rocks required and children will need some assistance down the steps and short hop over the coral rocks.

The apartment was well equipped with all the utensils, great (very sharp) knives, cooking and washing facilities that you would expect from a self contained unit. We used most of the facilities and cooked many meals. Groceries can be obtained from one of 3 or 4 local super markets but will need own transport. The bedrooms and sitting room are all air conditioned which is a pleasant relief after an active day. Four balconies to choose from to look at the fantastic view of the bay and watching the odd cruise ship come into port. We mainly used the kitchen balcony for breakfast and main dinning area of dinner.

We were met by Angelia who also is also the house keeper and subsequently visited us every few days to ensure all was ok and the apartment was cleaned to a very high standard. She also got us some initial provisions on a our first day so that we could go to bed after first long day.

Snorkeling at Batts Rock was safe, full of wildlife and a few local green turtles popped their heads up now and again. These are some of many things you can do from this apartment, including, paddle boarding, sailing, jet skiing, fishing, submarine trip, visiting plantation houses, rum tours, horse riding, swimming or just generally floating around in the 28C sea.

Other places I highly recommend are Paynes Bay Beach, Sandy Lane Beach and the Fish Pot restaurant near Port St Charles. Locally, Cin Cin is within walking distance of the apartment. For those who don't have a hire car, the is a bus stop 20 seconds away from the apartment, which makes anywhere on Barbados accessible.

In summary, great tropical holiday in a safe, fully featured and accessible apartment for the family.

“Stunning view in well appointed villa”
Reviewed 27 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

people found this review helpful

We returned from a glorious week in Coralita apartment #2. First let me say that the architecture of the place is perfect for tropical living: white plaster, smooth rounded walls and ceilings, large mahogany cased windows and doors, and restful, neutral floor tile throughout. There is a nod toward Morroccan style with delightful insets placed strategically in the walls that have lighting above to unobtrusively light an area with a soft glow rather than harsh brightness; and each has a lovely piece of the sea (coral or shells) to acknowledge its geography. Perched on a rocky cliff, the scenery is spectacular; the siting of the building inspired, and the landscaping adds to its beauty without overwhelming of the view (2 large palm trees lend tropical ambience).

The bathrooms have natural stone counters with vessel sinks, and the kitchen is equipped with everything you need to truly feel like you are in an apartment. I especially appreciated the utility of every item; nothing more or less than is needed. Often when renting a home or villa, you arrive to find leftover hand-me-down furniture, mismatched dinnerware and silverware and junky décor. You can tell that the owners take pride in making it easy and aesthetically pleasing to live there. A bonus is the dishwasher, which we used quite often. Large flat screen TV (although we hardly used it) is hooked up to many channel options, and wifi was efficient and allowed us to stay in contact without costly international data fees.

It should be noted that the steps to apartment 2 are actually a spiral staircase, which is a little dicey to navigate for 2 broads with bad hips haha, but leads to a breathtaking level that has one of the best views I have ever experienced. My friend and I were celebrating our 60th birthdays (we came to Batts Rock for our 40th birthday as well, at The Belfry), and felt we found the perfect place to share: each had our own bedroom and bathroom, and we spent hours on the cozy dining terrace playing Scrabble and watching the waves crash upon the shoreline.

Although there are air conditioners, we did not use them once, preferring to cast open wide the windows and doors and let the island breeze create our temperatures. There is a nice cross breeze when you open the window from kitchen to dining terrace, although, like most of the coastal properties on Barbados, the back of the house is right on a busy street and traffic noise blends with crashing wave sounds; you get used to it.

When we were there (week of April 18 to 25), the steps to beach were not usable as the water was crashing right up to the cliff. But we soon discovered how easy it was to take the short walk down to the public Batts Rock Beach, which you can see from the terrace, and wander along its gorgeous shoreline and swim at intervals. Bring water shoes for easier navigation between the coral and rocks in what looks like a smooth sandy bottom.

The people of Barbados are so friendly and helpful; but the treasure of Coralita is the availability of Sandra the housekeeper. She is a wealth of island knowledge and contacts, a pleasant and jovial lady, and keeps the place very well cleaned and stocked. The place was immaculate. We recommend Coralita highly and look forward to returning!

“Paradise Found”
Reviewed 27 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

people found this review helpful

We stayed here with our teenage kids for 10 days. Absolute heaven ! Defintely for those seeking some serious R&R - not for those seeking lively nightlife scene & shops - though these are only a short bus journey away. Roughly 25 min drive from the airport, and with a bus stop right outside the door. Nearest (lovely) beach (and kids park) a short swim, or a 3 minute walk. ATM and garage selling provisions 10 minutes walk, with a locals' bar opposite (11am - 4pm ) with most Premier football matches being shown (Liverpool FC supporters will have the warmest welcome, as the owner is a big fan !).
Apart from the noise of the sea, the apartment is very quiet despite being right on the main road, and also in a convenient location for exploring just about everywhere on the island. Excellent choice of balconies for watching the sun go down, the cruise ships entering & leaving port, watching turtles feed and the occasional wild monkey passing by !
The apartment is well furnished & well maintained, with plenty of room for a family of 4. Well equipped for self catering, fully functioning showers, wifi & TV. Separate airconditioned sitting room a great escape if the heat or humidity gets too much. The varying floor levels & cute moroccan accent wall details gives this apartment as much wow factor inside, as it has outside. At all times we felt perfectly safe & secure.
The owner is very helpful and communication were answered promptly.
No real negatives at all, but a couple of improvements; it would have beengreat to have had an additional table & chair set outside to facilitate alfresco dining on one of the three wonderful balconies (presently only a low coffee table & low seating are provided - making eating outside a little tricky), a clothes drying rack for items not suitable to tumble dry would have been useful, and a few more chopping boards, for cooking, would mean complete perfection !
If one day, I win the lottery, I'd like to buy this place - until then, we'll keep dreaming, and keep renting it. Paradise Found !

“BEST OCEAN EXPERIENCE ON WEST COAST”
Reviewed 28 January 2015 for a stay in January 2015

people found this review helpful

My husband and I rented Graham's wonderful apartment #1 at Coralita for two weeks. The swimming that is right below this apartment is spectacular. I have swam in almost every beach on this island (except for the north and eastern sides), and this is probably the best swimming bay you will find. The water is calm and warm, clear and inviting. The views from this tri-level apartment are absolutely phenomenal. Words can't describe the color of the ocean, the amazing sunsets and being directly over/on top of the water on the cliff in "Batts Rock Bay". The apartment was so comfortable for either two or four persons. We enjoyed the private roof top deck with comfortable loungers and high-quality umbrella to shade us in the afternoons. The layout was also very well-designed -- both bedrooms downstairs and each with it's own private bath. The guest bedroom with the two twin beds has a wonderful and large deck with more incredible views. There is also access to the ocean down the rocky cliff into the water with carved out stone steps (easy access). The beach walking is great from the apartment -- you can walk up towards the north (towards Alleyne's Bay) when the tide is low, or you can walk south towards the port (about 4 miles round trip on the beach). It's only about 5 minutes drive from Holetown and all the great little restaurants on 1st and 2nd street. The views and listening to the ocean crash upon the rocks at night when the tide is high made this vacation a truly memorable experience. We found the accommodations to be one of the best deals on the island, especially when you compare to the high prices of the neighboring 3 units at Coralita, which are very small and double the price. It was a pleasure to deal with the very accommodating and kind owner, Graham, who made sure we had everything we needed to make our stay great. If you are looking for 180-degree ocean views, amazing sunsets, peace, quiet, serenity and some elbow room away from the crowded resorts, this is it!!
