About the neighbourhood
.Located on the west coast (Caribbean side of Barbados), this beachfront condo is within a 5 min. walking distance of bars, restaurants, banks, shopping, supermarket, car hire, and boutiques. It is a 28 km drive from the airport by taxi - and a bus into the city Bridgetown takes 20 mins. Buses are inexpensive, run frequently and are used by visitors and locals alike. It is possible to visit places of interest by bus -or by hiring a car, or taking a taxi. All beaches are public in Barbados - private beaches are not allowed. The west coast known as the Platinum Coast, is famous for its normally calm seas, upscale 5* hotels, residential estates, golf courses, and gourmet restaurants. As the island is roughly triangular in shape - the 3 coasts are all very different. The east coasts the A... more
Getting around
In the Holetown area walking is a great way to get around.... to go further afield - the buses run along Hwy #1 (the main road) frequently and cost $2,00 Bbs per person per trip =$1.00 USD Holetown is a fantastic place to be able to walk to most of the places for bars, restaurants. evening entertainment, banks, shopping and a some great beachfront locales where one can watch the fabulous west coast sunsets.... not just when the sun disappears below the horizon, but the "after sunset" colour show, that Mother Nature supplies every evening when the skies turn beautiful and sometimes amazing colours!
Car not needed
How to get there
Airport: Grantley Adams Int -Bridgetown: 35.0 km
Suggest being met by our regular taxi driver, recent rate for the trip was $70 Bbds = $35US - it is not recommended to hire a car at the airport as the road signs are poor and getting lost is easy, specially if one is tired after a long trip.
