Apartment, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, 4 Sleeps
Margaret and Bill Blackman offer you a warm English/Bajan welcome to their comfortable apartment Tightlines. A delightful, recently constructed two double bedroomed apartment located on the border of the Parish of St. James and St. Peter, next to the village of Rock Dundo, and just a five minute drive or 20 minute walk to both Gibbs and Mullins beach.
Tightlines is so called because of the owners passion for fishing.
The apartment is attractive, clean and modern.
It is an ideal place to relax and enjoy Barbados being some 400ft above sea level. This charming location benefits from a cooling breeze from the hills.
There is a local store and bar within walking distance, where provisions can be bought and meals such as chicken, fish, pork ribs and maccaroni pie can be purchased and ether eaten in the bar or taken home.
