The villa in the ideal location to experience the tranquility of Caribbean living whilst being able to easily access the whole island by car or bus. It is accessible by car or bus from the airport, the journey takes less than 15 minutes. The tranquil location is 3 minutes’ walk to the main road which is a busy bus route taking you across the island and the property is within 5 minutes of a quiet beach. There are several local services within 5 minutes walking distance of the property including an English pub, doctor's office with pharmacy, bars, restaurants and a min-mart. A further distance away though within walking distance are the busier areas of Oistins and St Lawrence gap with supermarket, bustling night life, multiple restaurants, banks and beaches.
Smoking is no longer permissible in indoor public spaces in Barbados. Please smoke on the veranda, gazebo or garden.
We had a fantastic holiday, the location was perfect just a 2 min walk to nearest bar and 5 mins to nearest beach. The buses ran every few mins from the end of the road that would drop you off at whichever beach you wanted or all the way to Bridgetown. Air-conditioning was good in the bedrooms and area quiet so no problems sleeping. Pool was lovely to come back to after day on beach, and even had some lazy days not going out relaxing at pool. Ideal to have washing machine to freshen up beach towels. Luckily we knew the area as there was no welcome/information pack which would have been good but we were given tel number of the villa manager who was very friendly and welcoming to call if we needed anything, kitchen was well stocked apart from dinner plates for some reason, but after talking to the neighbouring villas realised that some may have been redistributed after a BBQ as they had loads!! We would definitely use this villa again.

Property is in a quiet resedential area. Rooms are okay, but could do with a bit of updating.
Be very carefull trying to close blinds as they are plastic and break very easy( as i found out) therefore lost of breakeage deposit.
Pool looks bigger in photo to actual size, but for family with young children it is ideal.

I thought this property was fantastic Fred the caretaker was so good and very helpful throughout our stay.
The only down points we have is the aircon only being in one room this really effected the two people who had to sleep in the non aircn room we actually found it very hard to sleep as it was way to warm I understand it is expensive to run aircon all the time but I would rather pay a little extra and have aircon and enjoy my sleep at night instead of spending the night stuck to the sheets.
Also we had two days without a pool due to a broken pump , Fred and the pool guy did there best to get it fixed quickly but we did feel a bit disappointed.
Overall we loved the apartments it was very safe, clean Fred is a credit to the place a real nice guy who cares about his guests.
We are hoping to book again very soon as we are regulars to Barbados .

Second stay. This time our expectations were not met but exceeded. All recommendations made after our first visit were taken into account and plus.. Can't wait to go back.

Couldn't have asked for a warmer welcome from Jacqui (and the weather ('',) ) both were great. The apartment was very clean and airy, with the added bonus of a pool :-), gazebo (with fairy lights) and games table/basketball net a nice touch!! My only problem was that as I have a lot of family on the island the mobile phone provided was useful but expensive, so a land line would have been more appropriate. All in all a fantastic time was had. Thank you!!

The property is ideally situated for whatever you plan to do with your time in Barbados, its not more than 20 minutes bus ride to the main town, 10 minutes bus ride to all the local night life and never more than a stones throw away from a beach, not to mention 15 minutes walk from transport links to the rest of the island.
The villa is spacious and comfortable, both bedrooms are air conditioned, which is definitely needed, and the kitchen comes equipped with everything you might need on your self catered holiday - except the food of course!
The pool is cleaned regularly and there is more than enough space to lounge around both the pool and the outside dining area, just in case you dont make it to the beach.
