Speightstown, Saint Peter Parish, Barbados
This fabulous beachfront penthouse is situated on the edge of historic Speightstown, which was once the main port of Barbados. This is the Barbados of old - Caribbean colour and life is all around you. There is a small road that runs between the penthouse and a beautiful powdery white sand beach. This is the old coastal road and leads you directly into Speightstown. This beach is ideal for swimming, snorkelling etc. , and 2 minute stroll northwards brings you to Heywood beach which stretches for approximately 1 mile. <BR><BR>This is an idyllic romantic get away. Sip a refreshing drink on the penthouse terrace, whilst the cooling Caribbean breezes soothe your soul, and gaze over the aquamarine Caribbean Sea . <BR><BR>Inside the penthouse is cool and airy; marble floors and high cathedral ceilings with air conditioni...

We stayed here for 2 weeks in January, we were met by Jane the house keeper who was very helpful. The apartment is large and very comfortable, it was decorated and furnished more like a home than a holiday rental which was lovely. The Balcony overlooking the beach was why we booked it. we ate every meal out there and...

Management response:

Hi Alyson and thanks for your lovely review! I'm happy that you enjoyed your stay in my property. I also love Speightstown, as it has still managed to retain it's authentic Caribbean feel. I hope it remains so for years to come. The restaurant renovation is now nearing it's end, 6 months behind schedule, but I believe it will be...

The condo was right across from the beach which was nice. The view and sunsets from the balcony were beautiful. The condo was comfortable but there are things that need updating. The sheets were not as luxurious as we expected but adequate. The pillows were not in good condition at all and were very uncomfortable to sleep with. There were...

Hello Claudia and thank you very much for your comments. I do have to first answer your comments regarding the air conditioning. If you had ever read the property description on the TA website, you would have been fully aware that the two AC units in the living area have never been attached to the mains. The website absolutely states...

Management response:

This is a totally and completely unfair review of my property. As is stated clearly on all websites, there is NO AC in the living area, and AC in bedrooms only. There are AC units in the living room, that have never been connected to the mains since I bought the property. I may remove them, as they are not...
