Went over for 19 days in Sept to chill and relax. Golden view really lived up to our expectations. The owners clearly have great taste and have paid great attention to detail.the apt has been given a superb makeover and really stands out from the rest! No staircases of lifts to negotiate and lovely pool area in the tropical gardens that surround ! Everything you could need on holiday and if you are beach bums like us you certainly won't be disappointed. A short 5-10 mins walk will take you to the gorgeous crystal clear blue waters with beach bars ! If you wish to explore the island local buses are cheap. Limegrove mall is nice to visit with expensive designer brands but there are many local souvenir shops selling beautiful items locally made and produced. The mount gay rum is also good in moderation of course!! The Chinese restaurant on site is also good but a great variation of many local restaurants to suit all budgets. Everything about the apt that was in the ad is 100% as advertised.even the staff at reception could not have been any more helpful. It's very secure too.we will definitely be returning !
Trying to find affordable accommodation at this time of year in Barbados is a challenge, finding a beautiful apartment in a great location that is affordable is another. Claire and Philip's apartment in the Golden View complex is stunning, every little thing has been thought about from the $2 left in the pot for the next guest to use the aircon to a hamper of goodies you may need from a hairdryer to adaptors. With the apartment being on the ground floor it was lovely to stroll into the stunning garden and swim in the 25m pool each morning before our 5min walk to the beach for a hard day in the sun. The supermarket being en-route meant this time we could ditch hiring a car which can be a huge expensive in Dec...if you can even get one! We were probably the youngest in the complex (mid 30's) but actually it was great for us as we wanted a quiet relaxing holiday this time around, the other guest whilst extremely friendly did keep themselves to themselves.
