We have visited Barbados many times and this has to be the best Apartment we have stayed in.
On entering the apartment the first thing that hits you is how light and airy it feels, and when we drew back the curtains we were not disappointed with the view over the beautiful gardens.... its a real peaceful oasis which attracts lots of exotic birds and the odd green monkey.
The way the building is designed means the air flow through the shutter windows keeps it cool, even though the temperature didn't fall below mid 70's on a night time, we found the fan above the bed was comfortable enough without having to use the aircon.
Lots of white fluffy towels provided in the beautiful bathroom (which has a great walk in shower enclosure so no horrible shower curtains) along with beach towels so no need to take space up in suitcases.
Brilliant wifi connection throughout our stay, and cable television which we didn't use but there if needed. Everything you could need in well equipped kitchen.
The majority of the residents and long term renters are probably 60 plus, but each and every one we came in contact with were very friendly.
The swimming pool is a great size and very well maintained and the on site bar and Chinese restaurant is a great bonus.
Cleaner lady came in once during our stay and the place was left spotless again with fresh bedding and towels.
I only arrived back in the UK early this morning and have already spoken to the owner who has been very helpful with great communication before during and after our stay.
Already sorting flights to return next year.
Can't rate the place or owner highly enough.
Once again, a great stay. Thank you to Claire & Phillip for providing a lovely apartment for our holiday.
Just returned from two weeks in Holetown and stayed in apartment 125 Golden View, couldn't fault it. The apartment has recently been renovated by the looks of things it is immaculate, a small but well appointed kitchen with all the crockery, glasses you would need, the bathroom (and in particular the shower) was fantastic, modern, bright and clean. Would definitely like to stay again.
The apartment is set on the ground floor so you have the added bonus of being able to access the gardens and the pool via your balcony area which was lovely. The gardens are beautiful and quiet and we often laid out on the beds near to our apartment so we could pop back inside for drinks as and when we needed. There was never an issue getting a sunbed, at most I would say only 20% of the beds where ever in use at any one time. The complex is quiet, this isn't a party place a lot of people there are either residents or retired couples who are out there for several months at a time, so not a place to make friends. That said the quietness suited us perfectly and if you want lively atmosphere Holetown is a 10 minute stroll away for a choice of bars and restaurants. The supermarket is 5 minute walk away and there is a free shuttle bus that runs back from the supermarket with your food if you need it. You don't need a car for this apartment as everything you need the beach, the bars, the restaurants and the supermarket are all on your doorstep.
We thoroughly enjoyed our time at this beautiful apartment.
It looked like a brand new place with everything well maintained for such a good rate.
The ladies at reception were only too happy to help recommend great restaurants etc. drift is lovely for pizza on Fridays
We spent most of our time at the pool and as the supermarket, beach, restaurants and coffee shop were really close by we didn't even need a car for anything.
Cave shepherd at sunset crest was about 5 minutes walk. Loved their beach towels!
We can't wait to book again and jump in that pool. Bliss.
This is a top-notch condo, perfect for a relaxing, stress-free holiday.The service provided by Claire, the owner, her agent and the reception staff, was first rate. We enjoyed the large pool with a spacious sun-terrace and adequate shade, if required, afforded by the beautiful, lush gardens.
