Within Walking Distance To The Most Fabulous Beaches On The Island.
About Halum Thomas
My wife and I share this well maintained home and would love to share the pleasure we get from vacationing here on this beautiful island. I am originally from Barbados but currently reside in Canada with my 3 children and 6 grand children. We are both retired and have included this as our second home as we enjoy our hobby of traveling the globe.
Halum Thomas purchased this Apartment in 2013
Why Halum Thomas chose Rendezvous
We have traveled widely and chose this venue because of its quiet location, its' proximity to all amenities and entertainment and transportation. The grocery store is just 8 minutes walk away and there you can find all the groceries you need. The store shuttle bus will bring you to your doorstep after shopping if required. Free Wi-Fi and internet is offered and can be enjoyed on the balcony or in the home. A large screen TV with a choice of popular European and North American Channels is also available 24 hrs.
What makes this Apartment unique
We fell in love with this property because of its location, friendly neighbourhood, and its closeness to public transportation which could have you in the city within 15 minutes. It is also 10 minutes from the best beaches in the island. It is suitable for a children and for couples young or old. It is our home away from home in Canada. The property has a porch where you can sit and have a drink, relax with a book, text your jealous friends back home, surf the internet or soak up the sunshine as you sip on your favourite drink.

We just got him from Halum’s property & would gladly stay there again. It is a family-friendly space & great value for the money.
We appreciated that the home had a washer, children’s beach toys, great wifi, and lovely ACs in the bedrooms. The beds were comfy, the tiling was lovely, and the patio worked really well for us.
The location was also a nice residential neighbourhood waking distance to two grocery stores. We had a bit of a struggle the first week learning how to walk along the busy main road with disappearing sidewalks & a baby, but ended up finding our way.
Halum & Nigel were very responsive & took good care of us. We didn’t have any problems with water shortages, but did have a problem with water drainage in the shower which we were able to work around & let Nigel know about when we departed.
Thank-you & hope to stay with you again!
Thank you for the review of your stay. I am pleased to learn that you enjoyed the home as well as your stay on the island. I hope that you can share your experience with friends and loved ones and we look forward to your next visit with us. Have a great summer after this very cold winter months !!
A comfortable apartment
We enjoyed our stay at this apartment. Even as the location is convenient for nearby restaurants, groceries and beach we did not chance walking on a very busy road and opted to use a rented car. The apartment itself needs some attention
- bath shower head puts more water on the walls than your head
- kitchen could do with some new cookware especially frying pan
- kitchen cupboard drawers need some adjustments to make sure they are easy to pull open They sometimes felt that they were disconnected from their runners .
- There were 2 chairs and a pull out sofa in the living area but one chair was broken and could not be used
- Washing machine took more than 3 hours to complete a single load.
The location of the apartment close to the main highway makes for a noisy environment day and night even with the windows closed.
The apartment comes with bunk beds in the second bedroom but we had no use of this room.
Thank you for your very honest review of your stay. I have communicated your comments with Nigel and we are in the process of getting most things corrected /repaired. You have returned to a wintry time here but I hope that things will improve soon and wish you a great summer ahead.
Just as advertised!
Very quiet residential area with acceptable amenities. Would recommend to anyone with children.
Good value for the accommodations and location
We stayed here for two weeks in February and we had a good time. If you Google for the apartment, search for Rendezvous Gardens. That will get you close enough. A search for 1st Avenue may direct you to a different location. The apartment has everything needed for self-catering including pots, pans, utensils, towels, and linens and washer etc. Air conditioning is only in the bedrooms, which makes for a comfortable sleep. The rest of the apartment is cooled by fans and windows. The windows have screens so mosquitoes with open windows are not a problem. TV and Internet access are more than adequate. The location is very convenient to the grocery store down the street and to most of the island’s attractions and beaches. Nigel was very helpful in getting us acclimated to the apartment and the area.
The cost was very reasonable given the prices of other places that are closer to the beach. With a car you can easily get to many of the beaches on the island, or just a few minutes walk down the road. Due to the prolonged sewage overflow problem down the street, we elected to drive to other parts of the island to go to the beach and for swimming. The parking spot in front is tight, but most rental cars are small and will fit. We did notice some road noise from cars from the bedroom, but it didn’t keep us up. The location is also susceptible to periodic water outages, but it seems to come back the next day. There are buckets in the apartment that might be worthwhile to fill up for use during those periods, just in case; we were a bit unprepared for one of the outages. Seems that periodic water outages are not uncommon around the island. In general, we had a good time and really don’t have any complaints about the apartment
Thank you H & S, for your custom and for the review of your stay at Thomasville. We are pleased to learn that you had an enjoyable time on the island despite some slight inconvenience with the water problem. We are delighted when folks come this distance and have a great time. We will be addressing a greater storage system for when water outages occur. We wish you both a fun filled summer and look forward to be of service to you on further visits to the island.
Great location and Value
My young family and I had the pleasure of staying at Halum's apartment in Christ Church in January 2018. The apartment is in an excellent location, both in a quiet and safe neighbourhood and walking distance to grocery stores, restaurants and beautiful Worthing beach (Dover and Accra beaches are also very close). I would recommend this apartment to those looking for a pleasant alternative to resort vacations. I look forward to our next vacation in Barbados :)
Thank you Al for your custom and also for your response to the review. I am pleased to hear that you and your family had a pleasurable time at the apartment and on the island. We look forward to booking you for your next visit to the island.
We recently returned from our Barbados vacation. Our 8-night stay at the Thomasville Apartment was enjoyable. What can I say? Halum you were right...we loved it! The property is well-maintained, clean, located in a lovely neighborhood that provides ease of access to several of Barbados' most beautiful beaches and other fun activities. The Property Manager, Nigel, is superb. He is professional, courteous, and extremely responsive. We look forward to staying here again!
