Far from being new to Barbados - we have enjoyed the charms of this beautiful island many times - we could trawl through the holiday sites again for ideas on accomodation, or ask those who know.
So Bim fans, we are seeking a stand alone apartment, (not part of a complex), self catering on the west coast, ideally between or either side of Speightstown and Holetown. We have stayed at some nice places inland of Highway 1, but have to ask what experiences people have had of beachside apartments along this stretch - which ones might get the thumbs up for a grown family of four, and which ones, if any, are worth sidestepping.
Proximity to clubs and bars is not important, but a car parking space is.
Waking to the sound of hustle and bustle of local life is nice, but waking to the sound of the surf is desirable. A short walk to the beach may be expected, but we would consider private beach access!
Rental rates need to be "sensible" or the apartment really worth throwing my credit card at. As far as booking is concerned, we are thinking of two years away for this trip, during low season. So, ideas and thoughts welcomed. Thanks.
