the apartment was well furnished and equipped, it was spotlessly clean and we would thoroughly recommend it as a base for exploring the north of Barbados. We made good use of the pools here, and the local supermarket made shopping and self-catering so easy.

My husband and our 2 children came here for our honeymoon for 2 weeks and I can honestly say we had the most amazing time. Lawrence and Jennine were very helpful right from the start, we were given a pack of information on the apartment and great directions. Upon arrival the map and directions were easy to follow and we were pleasantly surprised when we got to the apartment it literally has everything you need from washing machine right down to hair dryers, sewing kits, little speakers for tablets or phones so you can play your own music plenty of beach towels etc. The apartment itself was spotlessly clean and ample space loved the huge balcony with gorgeous views front and back. The beds are exceptionally comfortable as is all the seating within the apartment and balcony. The pools and grounds are kept remarkably spotless with showers changing rooms and toilets all next to them and we honestly felt like we had our own private pools it's so peaceful and tranquil by the second day we were all very very relaxed. Everybody is friendly and so helpful do read the guest book as its full of great recommendations of where to go what to see and where to eat. Thank you for really giving us a honeymoon to remember and we most certainly will be returning. I can't recommend coming here enough you will not be disappointed.

My husband and I were given the opportunity to stay 3 nights at this amazingly clean, spacious, modern and comfortable apartment in Sunny Hot Barbados, and it was fabulous. Laurence and Jennine are the most caring and supportive couple you could ever meet. I have no concerns or issues and without a doubt most definitely sing their praise. If peace and quiet, space, WiFi, modern furniture, comfort and much more. In an apartment which has all the amenities you're hoping to use, I suggest Brocklestone Hill St Peters in Barbados is the place for you. Thank you Jennine and Laurence.

We stayed here in July for our honeymoon. It was just like being at home. Everything we needed. Jennine and Lawrence also gave us so much information on where to go and what to do, best places to eat etc. Totally made our honeymoon. We're definitely going back again. The whole complex is so peaceful and well maintained. Perfect holiday/honeymoon. Thank you.

Lawrence and Jennine Hill are exactly the kind of owners you would want if you lease a holiday rental! They visit the apartment themselves regularly and are always upgrading where they think it needs it - we have been going to Barbados for eight years now and would not stay anywhere else! We love the cool breeze as it is on a hill - and the peace and quiet of the beautiful surroundings. The beach is 10 minute away by car and we found a fabulous beachside restaurant in Speightstown last time where you can lounge on the beach all day and enjoy a scrumptious dinner whilst watching the sun go down.

“Peaceful oasis with huge balcony”
Reviewed 6 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

The apartment is located away from the main tourist areas in a secure complex consisting of villas and apartments surrounded by well kept gardens with tennis courts and an air-conditioned gym not to mention the swimming pools.
The top floor apartment overlooks the central pool area and gardens so the view from the enormous balcony is very relaxing. We were lucky enough to see monkeys and humming birds as we sat relaxing. The balcony is a room in itself with 2 sofas, a dining table and chairs and 2 sun loungers. Also drying facilities. The warm sun shines onto it in the early morning but is in the shade from the fierce heat for the rest of the day. A welcome cooling breeze blows from the east straight onto the balcony and through the apartment if the patio doors are open.
There is an enormous bed in the front double bedroom which is next to the shower room.
The rear double bedroom is en-suite and opens onto the balcony getting the early morning sun.
The kitchen is very well equipped including all requisite utensils and crockery, pots and pans for preparation of most meals. A large freezer with ice cube trays. A large fridge - in which you should keep all your open food to avoid ants. A large oven. 4 ring hob. Microwave, kettle, toaster, dishwasher, washing machine and tumble dryer. Not forgetting the coolbags for picnics. So everything you need to self-cater.
The lounge area has a large comfortable corner sofa and a separate easy chair to enjoy Netflix on the TV if spending an evening in. The sports channels also had the World cup T20 cricket on - unlike the BBC.!! WiFi is available throughout the apartment and balcony.
There is also a dining table inside if you prefer a bit more privacy.
Overall the apartment was very spacious for 2 but cosy enough to feel at home. There is a lift if the two flights of stairs are a problem.
I would recommend a car to get about. It would be quite a hike back up the hill with heavy shopping from the Trimart supermarket about a mile down the hill. We found Jordans in Speightstown had more variety and was slightly cheaper.
A car is useful to get to various beaches within the vicinity and also further afield. There is lots to explore on the island using a map and guidebook, the apartment is well situated to explore both the dramatic east coast and calmer west coast. It took about an hour to drive to the south coast.
Jennine the owner was very helpful - booking was very easy and we were given lots of useful information.
Rachelle the housekeeper was available if necessary via the free house phone for any help during the stay. She kept the apartment very clean. There was plenty of spare laundry if required even beach towels.
In all the apartment was a quiet relaxing welcoming "home" a pleasure to come back to after a day sightseeing or sitting on the beach. Or even just for "chilling".
I would certainly recommend it for a quiet peaceful holiday.

We are so pleased you found everything to your liking. No better compliment than having the apt, referred to as "home from home". Thank you. We loved hearing about all the quiet & deserted beaches you found & as you have seen for yourselves, there are some pretty idyllic picture post card beaches out there! Many, many thanks, Jennine & Laurence

“A little bit of paradise”
Reviewed 12 March 2016 for a stay in February 2016

Just returned from the lovely apartment called Brocklestone Hill.So peaceful, comfortable and secure. If you are an early riser you will see monkeys in the garden between 6 and 7 am.but the most amazing spectacle was watching hundreds of turtles hatching on the local Speightstown beach.This happened in the early evening, after dark.We feel so privaledged to have seen this. Would return in a heartbeat.

It is a fantastic sight to see the monkeys arrive on the complex, looking amongst the mango trees for the ripened fruit! Seeing the whole family arrive and to see the babies play fight amongst themselves!

It seems you were again honoured to witness another lovely sight, to watch the baby turtles hatch under the dying sun & race on down to the shoreline, fantastic and thank you for putting this on your review of your stay, many many thanks, Jennine & Laurence
