We had a wonderful stay at Louise and Eric's for 4 weeks in March 2018 - thanks! The downstairs apartment is completely self-contained with everything you'll need for a home-from-home holiday. If you can't find something, just ask Louise and she's probably got one upstairs - I even borrowed Eric's hair clippers! Louric is in a lovely location and is a good base to explore the whole island from. We enjoyed all our home-cooked meals outside watching the sheep and the monkeys and admiring the views of the sea and countryside. The bar, bbq and pool area are excellent too. We met many lovely people whilst we were there thanks to Louise and Eric's large circle of friends and local contacts. Special thanks and praise to everyone at the East Point Grill - great food, a great bar and an easy walk.
A warm welcome from Eric and Louise, perfect apartment for families with fully equipped kitchen, washing machine, own private pool with towels provided so no need to pack any, BBQ and bar to chill out in the evenings and maybe play dominoes . Pool area is fenced off and is safe if taking young children. Definitely need a hire car as situated on the east coast about 20 minutes from the airport and most attractions. With louise and Erics knowledge of the island we were able to discover beaches and places away from the tourist areas and see the real barbados. They can also advise you on places to eat like East point grill and Oistins is a must on a Friday or Saturday night. Will definitely go back xxx
Louric offers an affordable family friendly experience. The no frills simplistic setup caters for families holidaying on a budget, the apartment provides its occupants with access to a spacious garden area, which has a pool and BBQ / bar area. situated approx 20 min from the airport a hire vehicle is advised so that full advantage of the tourist spots can be taken. The owners are very friendly and have extensive local knowledge of the best beaches (Acra beach and the boatyard are highly recommended). If you have the opportunity, visit the local racecourse or cricket ground both were extremely fun.
It was my astrophotography holiday following the footsteps of famous Damian Peach.
I was positively surprised by Louise and Eric's hospitality. They have done their utmost effort to make my stay wonderful and relaxing holiday. They have taken me around the island and showed all its marvels. They have helped me with getting a good deal on a rental car.
Large comfy apartment and the swimming pool are suitable for a family holiday. Location of property is away from the crowded places but still close enough to empty beach (5 minutes walk).
Another worth noting point is the presence of many different birds, crabs, monkeys and sheep – all beautiful and interesting. You and your kids will love that. Birds are nesting in the plants on property so you can see chicks. Crabs were visiting me while I was out with my telescope. And monkeys are living in close by trees.
When it comes to astrophotography - there is no better place for planetary seeing conditions. I have taken some jaw dropping pictures of Saturn and Jupiter here. 20 out of 21 nights I had conditions for imaging with quality seeing far exceeding that what I had at home in Europe.
I will use Damian Peach’s words to describe my general impression of this stay: “Barbados I love you!”
I will definitely come back here.
I only have one negative about this place, I failed to book a long enough stay when I had the chance. We all enjoyed our stay here immensely, from our ages of four to fifty three, there was plenty for us all to enjoy and remember. Plus we made some fabulous new friends in Louise and Eric.
If you're looking for a nicely priced, lovely located and a friendly atmosphere to spend your stay in Barbados without too many tourist in your face, you need look no further.
