“Great budget accomodation, location, and owners!”
Reviewed 26 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

Great budget accommodation in an excellent location. Very close to coffe shops, restaurant, convenience/beach shop, bank, duty free shopping, bus stops ...and more importantly, right by Cheryl's food truck with delicious food, and only about a 5 minute or less walk to the beach! Owner and property manager were also very reliable and made us feel welcome! I would definitely stay here again!

Thank you Kelly for your very nice review and it was a pleasure hosting you and Sockie during your Barbados holiday. Unfortunately you didn't stay long enough (7 days is not enough for a Barbados stay!) but at least you managed to get a taste of Barbados (Cheryl's food truck across the street) as well as a sense of what a great place Barbados is to visit. It was a pleasure to meet you both and we look forward to a time in the future where we might have an opportunity to host you once again in this lovely holiday destination.
Wish you both all the best for 2016!

Having travelled to Barbados many times this self catering was by far the best, it was clean and had everything to make your stay comfortable and we will definately return on our next visit.
The comprehensive detail provided by the owner at the time of booking was second to none and the follow up the same. We are familiar with the area and felt completely at home and safe throughout our stay , we used the local shops , resteraunts and the many 'food vans' that are situated within the area and the amazing beach which is 5 mins walk away.
Well worth a visit if you are looking for a self catering holiday with only yourselves to please, excellent !

We continue to be humbled when we get reviews for our condo such as yours and we couldn't be happier that you enjoyed your stay, even during a time when it was, technically, the rainy season! Obviously, the rain did not affect the quality of your holiday and we are extremely happy that our condo met with all of your expectations. As you know, we do try to make sure that our prospective guests know exactly what they will be getting when renting our condo (that is not always the case with other rental properties) and we are continuously looking at adding additional value to the property so as to make our guests stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible!

Thank you once again for your review and we look forward to being able to be of help, once again, with a possible future return trip to Sunset Crest. Wish you all the best, as always!

“Home Away From Home”
Reviewed 29 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

people found this review helpful

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here. The condo was truly a home away from home. It was equipped with everything I needed and was close to EVERYTHING (supermarket, bus, banks, coffee shop, convenience store, shopping, beach, pool, you name it!). The owner, Rob, gave outstanding customer service from the time I booked the reservation and it continued right up until I checked in. He gave such helpful, and detailed information that made me feel so comfortable and confident that I made a great choice by choosing to stay at his condo. The only thing is I wished it had it's own Wi-Fi. I tried to pick up the free Wi-Fi from the coffee shop across the street but it was very unstable and weak inside the condo and even on the patio most times. Other than that, everything was great. I most definitely will stay at the condo again in the future. I am actually looking forward to it right now and I just got home last night! Definitely worth the price. You won't regret it!

Thank you very much for your very gracious review of your stay at the condo. We are always humbled when we get this kind of response for what is, essentially, a budget accommodation in Barbados. Fortunately for us, the condo is in a great location and we do otherwise try to ensure that we provide the best customer service that we can manage. We do know that having to rely on the free internet service from the coffee shop across the street is a weakness with respect to the features that we offer but that is one of the ways that we manage to keep our rental rates the lowest possible for our area. There is also free internet at the Beach Club (that is a 7 minute walk from the condo and that we provide access to for our guests during their stay) but, unfortunately, as you know, they were closed for renovations during the time of your stay at the condo. In addition, there is also free internet at the mall where the supermarket is located (10 minute walk from the condo) so there are a few other options for internet access in the area nearby. However, in the future, if we are able to figure out a way to provide internet service directly at the condo without having to raise our rental rates excessively, we assure you that we will do so.

Thank you once again for taking the time and trouble to provide a guest review and we look forward to a time in the future when we might be able to assist you with a future trip to Barbados. Wish you all the best!

The Condo is simply and useful, his position is perfect for everything you may need: beaches, coffee shops, duty free mall, market. In front of it there is one of the most beautiful beach of the West Coast, ideal for snorkeling too. Everything is very close to, so there is no need to rent a car if you think to stay around and the local buses can be used. Robert and Fay are lovely persons, very friendly and helpful and they will assist you in all your needs. Extremely recommended.

“Excellent value and location!”
Reviewed 5 March 2014 for a stay in February 2014

I had spent most of my holiday budget on getting to Barbados (from UK) so I knew from the outset that I was looking for a budget (self catering) apartment. Further I was travelling with my 13 year old daughter so also wanted somewhere that was clean and tidy, safe and secure, as well as closeby to things to do. I really couldn't have asked for anything more with this apartment! Rob and Fay were readily to hand to answer my myriad of questions and concerns with openness. Rob sends you video footage so you can really see what you are getting (both in the cottage and in the locality) in the utmost detail, so there are no surprises and you have realistic expectations. In the apartment we really valued the aircon and fans to help cool us as well as the range of up to date DVDs and the comfy armchairs and sofa (not always a given in holiday rentals). We weren't out often or late in the evening so that was great for us. The patio was pleasant too: spacious and secure. It really had everything we needed and fitted our requirements perfectly..

What I also appreciated - alongside its affordable nature - was its location. After seeing various places on the island snorkelling at nearby Beachlands was still our favourite activity and so close! We also enjoyed the access to the beach club (though only once as beaches are all so beautiful) and loved going to Surfside beach bar for sundowners, walking the boardwalk, wading to Sandy Lane bay, getting about on reggae buses, window shopping closeby at malls (Limegrove and Sunset), cinema (you can order snacks and drinks to your table!). The supermarket being close by too within walking distance was really helpful.

From my perspective this is an excellent value apartment so If you too are looking for somewhere affordable then this is just the ticket! I'm just hoarding my pennies until I can visit again!

Dear Fiona,

We are extremely happy that you had a fabulous holiday and that your expectations were met both as regards the condo accomodations as well as the area where the condo is located. Your review is an excellent example of how a "high end" destination such as Barbados can in fact be done within a modest budget and that Barbados can in fact be an affordable destination for most travellers. As you mentioned, we do try to ensure that we provide all of the information necessary for travellers to be comfortable both with respect to what to expect from the condo as well as all of the features that the local neighbourhood has to offer. Thank you very much for your detailed review and we look forward to a time when we might be able to host you once again in lovely Barbados.

This condo is excellent value for a budget holiday. The location is superb, and the added use of the Beach Club and Pool was a real bonus. Rob and Fay a great hosts and do everything to make your stay enjoyable. As does Sarah (the onsite representative) who goes above and beyond ones expectations, just a lovely lady. In our opinion this is the best area in Barbados. Will be booking for 2015.

Thank you very much for your review that very accurately reflects what our condo has to offer. It was a pleasure to have you stay at the condo and we really appreciate the way you treated the condo as if it was your own. We have now added a charcoal BBQ to the features that we offer (as you had originally asked about) so this will be awaiting your next stay in Sunset Crest. Hope you have a wonderful year and we look forward to being able to have you as guests at the condo once again in the near future.

We were very pleased with the EXCEPTIONAL customer service of the owners; their emails were very prompt, thorough and accurate. In addition we really appreciated that they were flexible with our last minute travel. We loved the YouTube videos.

The property was well maintained/equipped, cozy and clean; safe and secure. The owners described it accurately. The location was perfect for us - close walking distance to beach, pool, shopping and to see the green monkeys. The beaches are awesome and you can always find a patch of shade - we snorkeled every day right off the beach.

Wy-fi readily available at pool; the use of the local cell phone was an awesome benefit for us.

We loved the food from the fellow in the hatch-back - vegetarian - he is a food artist - just north of Holetown.

Access the pool was a great added benefit - loved cooling off in the afternoon and sharing stories with fellow travelers. The air conditioner came in handy for sleeping.

We really enjoyed our stay; the friendliness and customer service of the owners set the very positive tone for our vacation in paradise.
