“Fabulous!!!!”
Reviewed 21 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Our family had a fantastic time here in July. The apartment was beautiful and we particularly loved watching the hummingbirds from the veranda in the mornings, and the Fruit Bats in the evenings. The monkeys made a visit too. What we were not expecting was it to be 'Turtle Season'. We loved watching the turtles come out of the sea to lay their eggs every evening, it was truly magical. We only took photos once they had finished laying, then they were unfortunately subjected to a Hollywood style paparazzi photo shoot!! Please, Please take Rock Shoes as the Coral Reef is beautiful but not too kind to your feet!! The locals were genuinely lovely too. The Reggae bus is a must to get around, its great fun and only $2 to anywhere!! I can not fault this holiday or the beautiful apartment which had everything you could want. The Fish market and fruit and veg market was a 10 minute walk along the beach and we would cook most evenings using the BBQ provided. When my boys got bored of the beach or snorkelling on the coral reef (Teenagers!!) they would head back to the apartment for a bit of WIFI and Sky TV. I cant wait to get back!! Thank you David for a truly magical holiday which had everything for everyone. Julia x

“Best holiday yet in Barbados”
Reviewed 22 March 2017 for a stay in March 2017

We had not been back to the island for many years but I have to say that this was our best holiday location yet for a group of 5 family. We stayed in the very pretty apartment 2. Finding it was easy with David's detailed directions and parking secure and easy. My wife adored the large veranda space and as a family we spent a lot of time there. It is a great location with a stroll to the beach and in easy reach of Holetown with its many facilities and of course Tides - our favourite restaurant. Although on that front, we also had an excellent meal in Nishi. Wifi connection was good enough for me to work when needed and I was also able to watch the six nations rugby on the TV! The apartment is well appointed and was perfect for our needs and David and Diana are excellent correspondents and excellent and friendly hosts who went out of their way to make the holiday a great success. I actually fell ill and can also recommend the brilliant professionalism and friendliness of the medical centre so convenient in Holetown. My family voted this as their best location yet in Barbados ahead of the Fairmont and a smart villa in Paynes Bay which says it all.
I hope we can return soon. It was also great to see England win at the Kensington Oval and David's tips for a day at the cricket were excellent - as is his favourite local rum punch! I should also mention the fish market which is a stroll along the beach and perfect for barbecue ingredients. Last but not least beds and showers excellent which always helps as does the large fridge and cooker! If you are self catering at all, then The Gourmet shop in Holetown is expensive but for us made all the difference with a great wine selection as well as superior foods. For regular shopping the supermarket in Holetown does the trick and has a large range of Waitrose products if you need a taste of home. Thanks again to David and Diana for an excellent holiday and being such good hosts.

I struggle to put into words how excellent this villa is. It played a big part in our holiday. The apartment is very big and very well equipped. It was very well presented, being meticulously clean and tidy, but homely at the same time. The balcony is also very big and most of our time spent in the apartment was spent sitting, reading and cooking on the BBQ on the balcony. The access to the incredible beach is so convenient and you have the unenviable choice of going straight through the gate to a brilliant snorkelling spot, or you can turn to the left and walk about 100 metres to a spot that is perfect for swimming.
The apartment is conveniently situated between Holetown and Speightstown which provide everything you'll need for bars, restaurants and shops.
David and Diane were perfect hosts. There if needed, but respecting of privacy, they were a joy to deal with from first contact to the moment we left.
I would highly recommend this apartment and will definitely be returning.
Thank you David & Diane.

“Wonderful accommodation by the sea”

We spent three fabulous weeks in this house/apartment and had a fantastic holiday. The accommodation is of a high standard and has everything you need. The beds are very comfortable, large modern bathrooms, air conditioned bedrooms and a generous outdoor veranda. David and Diane were great hosts and very welcoming. Communication was very easy and helpful. We had the beach just for ourselves all the time. Snorkelling directly from the back garden is a fantastic experience. We saw turtles in our beach at night too. Lots of wildlife around. All in all a great vacation.
