“Excellent apartment conveniently located to beach and town”
Reviewed 28 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

The apartment is located in a quiet, safe residential area with friendly neighbours. The neighbour on the left is a taxi driver who has a wealth of knowledge about the island and has reasonable rates for hire. It is well appointed and spacious with two large bedrooms (with aircon) and an open plan living area. The kitchen has everything you need for a self catering holiday plus the added extra of a washing machine. The bathroom is clean and functional with a large shower area having plenty of hot water readily available. The wifi is available through a dongle which works very well (the girls at Digicel are excellent at helping set it up for you). The tv doesn't connect to the outside world but there are more than enough DVDs provided to keep you entertained for a month or two. The walk down to the nearest beach takes about 5 minutes but you will need to take your own chairs to that beach. The walk into town is a further 5 minutes which is very pleasant along the seashore. Speighstown has a supermarket and a number of fresh vegetable stalls where you can buy almost everything you need.
There are a number of very good restaurants within walking distance including The Fisherman's Pub and Grub, Juno's, Island Plates and The Lobster Pot.
There is space outside the apartment for a car but we didn't hire one, preferring to use the local and government buses. The terminal is a 10 minute walk but once there you can get a bus to most parts of the island for a $2 (bajan) fare. The yellow Reggae buses are interesting and should be experienced at least once during your stay!
Juno's provide free sunbeds and wifi on a beautiful stretch of beach but just ask that you purchase a drink from them.
The people who manage the apartment in Barbados are exceptionally helpful and went out of their way to accommodate us.
Altogether we had a wonderful stay and will be keen to return - not sure we should recommend too highly as it will become more difficult to make a booking next year!!

“a nice quiet street 5 minutes from the sea”
Reviewed 7 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

This was a nice quiet spot. Friendly neighbours, close to buses and the ocean.
Best beaches nearby are Port St.Charles beach and Mullins beach.
TV doesn't work but they provide loads of DVDS to watch.
Nice kitchenette and bathroom. Would stay here again, no doubt!

A comfotrable appartment in a quiet residential area it was clean, tidy and well equipped.
All the rooms were very spacious.
The nicest beach on the island is a minute stroll away
and Speightstown is only 5 minutes away.
There is a bus terminus (5min.walk) where you can get a bus to most locations on the island,very cheap.

Reviewed 26 January 2014 for a stay in January 2014

Charming accommodation in residential area. Clean and comfortable with all neccessary appliances - we really appreciated the sunhats! 15 mins to town centre with shops and local bus services. Sandy beaches close by and many other attractions in the area. Dongle supplied for wifi - worked extremely well.
We would definitely love to return.

“Home from home in paradise”
Reviewed 17 August 2013 for a stay in June 2013

We stayed at the villa with my Aunt, who had stayed previously, for a week at the start of June and thought it was a wonderful place to stay.
Everything you could want for a holiday is here, a proper kitchen, a washing machine, air conditioning and a DVD player for the odd quiet evening in.
The nicest beach on the island is a 5 minute stroll away and so quiet.
As it is in a residential area it is so peaceful at night, but Speightstown is only minutes away if you want to eat out or just chill with a beer and watch the sun set.
TIP - make sure you hire a car to explore the island, the driving is easy and they drive on the proper side of the road!! Another tip is a lovely beach to visit is the behind One Sandy Lane, great sunbeds and an excellent bar/food place with cheap prices.
