If you are looking for a vacation that allows you to explore independently, the Salt Ash apartments are for you. We went at the end of 2010. Keep in mind the price and you'll be shocked at the quality! So beautiful, so relaxing.
The apartment was so bright and clean, not to mention the amazing view of the ocean from our balcony every morning. The balcony was a perfect place to start off with breakfast and coffee. Appliances are out-dated but working, just like the bathroom. The shower temperature is unpredictable, but does the job - the white sand beach and crystal clear blue ocean in the backyard make up for any simple living that you my find in your apartment. The safe is questionable so lock your balcony and keep your valuables with you or at the front desk if you can. Talk to Abdul!!! He will set up great trips and activities for you - the catamaran took us snorkeling with turtles and over the reef with thousands of fish!
Also walked to the Gap every night, 10 minute walk. We always felt safe despite the unfamiliar surroundings and enjoyed lunch from the corner store where they serve a buffet of island delights. All at-home island cooking. Downtown has enough restaurants and bars to keep you entertained any night of the week. Chatting with locals and servers was fun and we learned a lot about the area - Bajans are proud of their country.
It is a great place for travelers who are inexperienced - using basic caution and thoughtfulness of course - or for travelers that want an independent, low-key vacation.
