Perfect holiday!

[:en]We are back in Barbados for our 6th time and as usual the accomodation and our stay was absolutely perfect! We stayed at the Tropical Gecko Studio for the last 2 weeks of May, it is small but for 2 people is great, completely furnished with all amenities. The bed is very confortable, the location is good and the apartment is windy and fresh. The big garden is nice and very well maintained with a nice lawn and few gorgeus palms. Stefano and Elisabetta were very nice and accomodating for all our needs. Thank you very much and see you again next year![:]

Cute, clean and cozy

[:en]This was our third trip to Barbados and each time we have stayed in one of Stefano's studio apartments. First time in Tropical Gecko, and as usual we had a great week with no problems and were very comfortable. Would recommend to anyone looking for a reputable, clean and safe place to stay on South Coast![:]

A perfect base in a lovely location

[:en]The tropical gecko studio is one of two in a small property with its own pretty garden. We have stayed in both studios and felt very happy and comfortable in both. The studios are very well equipped and maintained to a high standard. There is wifi, which is a bonus. There is plenty of space to sit outside and relax at all times of the day under the shady verandah. The studios are safe and secure, with outdoor lights at night and security cameras. There is a beach bar just two minutes walk away, where you can just have a drink and listen to music, or have something to eat and watch the sun set over the sea. Lovely! The surrounding area is not over-developed and has a friendly, laid back feel to it. The owner, Stefano, is exceptionally friendly and helpful. He is always around to answer questions or to give advice if you need it. I have no hesitation in recommending this studio (and the other properties that Stefano and Elisabetta have) to anyone. We did not get to see the tropical gecko after whom the studio is named, but we have seen his picture. Maybe next time![:]

Highly recommended! We will probably be back :)

[:en]After extensive research I got in touch with Stefano, the Italian owner. I booked the "Tropical Gecko Studio" for 2 weeks directly through Stefano and wired the money to his Barbados Account. Felt a bit risky at but worked out perfectly! Everything was as promised when we arrived and I got a much better price, which saved me about 200 US$. The appartment is well maintained, clean, has all the utilities you need (incl. fast WiFi and a well equiped kitchen for a bit of cooking), offers a spacious patio with hammock and roof and an additional outside shower for a quick splash during hot days. We had quite a few questions during our stay and Stefano was always helpfull, be it personally, via E-Mail or WhatsApp. He helped us find a good surf school, get a rental car on short notice - which was even delivered to our door step, and generellay helped with a great amount of tips for the island. Thank you again Stefano - we had a great time! The appartment is in a quiet area with the beach and a beach bar/restaurant 2 min away. The next mini mart (small convenience store), which is also the closest bus stop, is a short 5 min walk away. We regularly used the mini buses to go to Bridgetown (just 2 BBD / 1 US$ per ride). The ride to the closest supermarket, Miami Beach and Oistins in Bridgetown take about 20min. The mini bus is a low-cost and convenient alternative to a rental, if you want to explore the South Coast. All in all we really enjoyed our stay a lot and we will probably come back to visit again![:]

Elisabetta e Stefano, perfetti padroni di casa

[:en]Piccolo e delizioso monolocale appena ultimato, perfettamente pulito e ordinato, esattamente rispondente alle foto pubblicate, con giardino e spazio verandato esterno dotato di tavolo ed amaca, perfetto per la colazione e i momenti di relax. A 200 mt dalla meravigliosa e selvaggia spiaggia di Silver Sand paradiso per kiters e windsurfers. A 200 mt dal Surfers Bay Bar dove si può pranzare cenare a prezzi modici in riva ad mare e godere del tramonto o della musica live un paio di sere a settimana. A 500 mt dalla fermata del bus che porta in 10 minuti alla città di Oistin in mezzora nella capitale Bridgetown lungo il percorso tutte le più belle spiagge attrezzate e facilmente balneabili. La fermata del bus è davanti al minimarket posto dove si trova lo stretto necessario. Queste info e tante altre turistiche e pratiche sono presenti nel book che Elisabetta e Stefano hanno predisposto per i loro clienti. Elisabetta e Stefano mi sono venuti incontro in ogni necessità relativa al soggiorno presso il loro studio, dandomi aiuto ed ottimi consigli anche per visitare l isola; perfetti nella loro ospitalità, posso dire con gioia di aver trovato due amici sinceri.[:]

Unforgettable !

[:en]Very nice apartment, perfect for our holiday. First impression: very clean( room, bathroom). The patio overlooking the garden, well mainteined.The kitchenette is well organized, you find all utensils for cooking (even the oven). Wi-fy works properly. The beach is only one minute walking from the apartment and you find there a nice bar to chill out or eat something. By walking you can even reach other beautiful beaches. Elisabetta and Stefano have been perfect ! They gave us a lot of advice on the island, the different beaches, the watersports ana what to visit in this beautiful, tropical island. For local trasportation , the bus stop n°11 is only three minutes from the apartment. by walk, and takes you to Bridgetown along the coast where there are other beaches. I would strongly recomend this apartment to a friend. I think next time I'll fly to Barbados, my place will be The Tropical Gecko Studio !![:]

Stefano is, probably, the best host I’ve ever stayed with.

[:en]Stefano is, probably, the best host I’ve ever stayed with. Very open and attentive, while still respects privacy when you’d expect it. Very cozy small studio with a nice backyard, just minutes from the beach. The surrounding beaches are the best for kiting, windsurfing or some surfing. Swimming is ok too, but you’re in waves and cross-shore current, so not ideal for family beach bathing.[:]

This cute studio was a perfect choice.

[:en]We wanted to stay affordably close to the beach for a week and this cute studio was a perfect choice. We loved cooking breakfast in the newly renovated, essentially-stocked kitchen and eating every morning in the pretty backyard which is even nicer than the pictures. The huge bathroom shower was great for washing off the ocean at the end of day. Silver Sands Beach water is a bit rough but it was fun to watch the kite surfers and meet people in that community. This spot feels like a little getaway from the rest of the island but you are still a 5min walk to the $1 bus that runs all day and a 2min walk to a fantastic beach bar/restaurant with great food and live music. I appreciated the new, easy-to-use windows with mosquito screens which let in the wonderful sea breeze. Stefano arranged taxis to pick us up from and deliver us to the airport. He was a great communicator and very helpful for our entire stay.[:]

Excellent for Simple Barbados Living

[:en]I stayed for 3 weeks from late Dec 2017 to late Jan 2018 and I chose this as I cared less about luxury and wanted a longer holiday to avoid as much of the UK Winter as I could. I'm used to 28+ degree heat, so did not want the A/C which ramped up the price. I was seeking a quiet and relaxing holiday and this was a great choice for just that. Couple of things worth mentioning. The beaches within easy walking distance of the apartment are not swimming beaches but surfing beaches. There is hours of fun to be had watching the kite surfers and wind-surfers at the local beaches, but if you like to regularly dip into the ocean as you while away hours sunbathing and reading then you would have to be very brave to jump into these big wave waters. You need to drive, or get one of the many cheap local buses to Miami beach, for a swimmable Caribbean beach experience. I would also recommend renting a car. Stefano organised one and it made a huge difference. I travelled much of the island and it made food shopping much easier. Driving is simple, but be careful as pedestrians walk in the roads and the roads are full of pot holes. Take it slow and you will be fine. I recommend driving up the west coast to spend your days at the picture perfect Caribbean beaches that are up that way. If you hit those you have to be prepared to pay for expensive drinks. However if you buy one drink and rent a lounger for the day that's cheaper than staying at these luxury places all the time. Stefano and his team at the company that managed the apartment could not be more friendly or helpful. Any question or request they solve rapidly and professionally. I was also impressed by how regularly they change the towels - every 3 days. In summary, those seeking a quiet holiday and like clean simple living where everything works but is not particularly modern or glamorous, then you will love this place. It certainly gave me a level of peace of mind I haven't experienced in a long time. Thank you Stefano and team.[:]
