We stayed at this beautiful apartment for 10 days in March.
It was lovely, Diana the owner had thought of everything.It was spotlessly clean, the beds were comfortable and it had everything we needed.
The apartment is part of a Villa which is completely self contained, it is on the ground floor with its own private entrance and garden which is very secluded. The pool is shared with the owner, but that is not a problem as we had it to our selves a lot of the time The apartment is only a few minutes walk to Bottom Bay which is beautiful.
We hired a car for part of our stay, which we think is essential for shopping and seeing other parts of the Island, although the maps are useless and the road signs are non existent on the east coast,( much better on the west coast) throw the map away and buy a compass instead!
The weather was glorious and we had the most amazing time, we spent a lot of time in the garden with Duke, Diana's adorable dog, he's a gentle giant and a real softie. We loved the apartment and would recomend it to anyone.
Thank you Diana and Duke for sharing your lovely home with us
Diana is the hostess with the mostest! Duke the Dog is a happy friendly great big wuss woof. And Checkers the Turtle will change your impression of “only a turtle” forever with her intelligence.
Apartment was clean, beautifully appointed. Bedroom was large, the bed a king and very comfortable with quality linens. Diana had left all sorts of breakfast things so I didn’t have to rush to the store.
A stunning beach is within a 5 minute walk and many other fabulous beaches are a short drive away. Don’t miss a walk along the mighty cliffs of the Atlantic - incredible views.
Eat in or there are many great restaurants also just a short drive, particularly 3 at The Crane Resort following Happy Hour...and happy it is.
I had only one complaint: I had to leave:(. Thanks Diane. See you next time, Roomie!
Diana and Duke were literally the best host ever. From the beginning to end of our stay we were treated like family. The Villa was absolutely stunning. Very clean, modern, stylish, and has all the amenities you need. If you are visiting Barbados this is where you want to stay! Already planning our return trip. Truly, a pleasure to stay with you Diana and Duke! You are an inspiration and a blessing. Sending all the love to you from Ohio. Thank you again for everything!
We had an excellent four weeks in the villa. There is a a private garden with a patio. The refreshing breeze blows through the trees. There are lights in the garden so we spent many evenings sitting outside in the cooler air. The villa is very well equipped. We used the kitchen with its extensive range of equipment to cook both large and small meals. The sitting room has a two setter sofa and an armchair. The shower is large and good quality towels are provided. We loved the bedroom with its huge bed. There are windows on both sides so the breeze blows over the bed.
There is air con and there are ceiling fans.
We loved the dog and the tortoise although they are not intrusive if anyone is allergic..
In our opinion a car is essential for people who want to explore the island. Diana arranged good quality car hire for us as well as taxis from and to the airport. The taxi fare was 25 American dollars.
We have already booked to go next year.
The location is amazing with a stunning very quiet beach (Bottom Bay beach) just a short stroll away.There is a constant breeze to keep you cool and the patios' are perfect for sunbathing.The property itself is furnished to a very high standard and provides everything you could wish for in the kitchen area if you'r self catering.The beds are very comfortable and the solar heated shower is one of the best we have ever tried anywhere in the world.You are provided with clean towels and bed linen when you wish.Outside you have your own very private patio area, with tables chairs and a gas fired BBQ. You also have all day access to a very clean and welcome swimming pool.If you hire a car you can explore anywhere on the island very easily or you can use the local bus and access anywhere on the island for just 74p!( highly recommended).And last but not least is the charming host, Diana and her beautiful, friendly dog Duke.Diana is extremely knowledgeable about Barbados and always there to help if you need her, but never in your face.We miss them both very much.We can't wait to go back again and would recommend without hesitation.Jayne &Mark Johnson.
