Interaction with guests
Apartment offers complete privacy with private parking and access. There is an upper level apartment and another rental studio on property. I live at the upper level however I am a full time employed engineer and am only on property late in the evenings and on weekends. However when I'm on property, I love to chat with guests about Barbados, places to see, thing to do and am generally available to answer any queries or resolve any problems that may pop up in the apartment. There may be guests in the studio apartment - also on the ground floor, which also presents additional opportunities for guest interaction. A lovely cleaning lady will come by weekly to clean apartments, change bed linen etc. You will be well taken care of.

Map
About the neighbourhood
On the west coast of Barbados on a ridge roughly 600m from beach - following public roadway. Being on the ridge permits views to the sea. A quiet residential area with some houses containing holiday apartments for tourists to Barbados. Close to route for public transportation.
Indeed a guest staying at the apartment will experience that home away from home feeling, and what life is like for the average Barbadian on a day by day basis. The close proximity (and convenience) of Jordan's supermarket, a doctor's office, pharmacy, restaurants, and other shopping is one of the things really loved about the neighborhood. The Fitts Village Esplanade/beach park is also a definite plus; the benches/gazebo allow 'sand free' picnicking.
Getting around
5 minutes walk to bus stops that head north towards Holetown or South towards Bridgetown. Both of these towns are roughly 7 miles away from the property - roughly a 10 minute bus ride. Once a booking is made, detailed directions to the property will be sent by email.
If you wish to see the sites of the island then I suggest that you rent a car on those days. Most of my past tenants have tended to stick within walking distance of the neighborhood as the sea and all amenities neded to have a fantastic stay are within walking distance

Car not needed
How to get there
Best to take a taxi or rent a car from the airport. Directions follow:

i) From the airport head westward along the ABC highway until its end at the western end of University Hill - at the University Hill (Walmer Lodge) roundabout

ii) Head northwards along Highway 1 (H1) passing the ESSO Black Rock Gas station on your left (west)

iii) Upon reaching Jordans Supermarket, which will be on your right, take the right turn facing the Fitts Village Esplanade. When the right turn is taken, a single storey
pink building will be on your left and Jordans Supermarket on your right.

iv) Head straight up the road – heading east. You will come upon a “Y” junction in the road where the left path carries you to Good Shepherd School. Keep to your
right at this junction.

v) When you keep to the right,...
