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.
Tight Lines is situated just off highway 2A, and one and a half kilometers inland from the west coast road. Its nearest beach, the secluded Gibbs beach is one of the most beautiful in Barbados. Close also is the superb Mullins beach with its watersports, bar, and other leisure facilities. The dramatic and beautiful East coast is a 20 minute drive away.
A local mini-market and bar are within walking distance and there are supermarkets and banks at Holetown and Speightstown.
Local dining from Kentucky fried chicken to 5 star restaurants can also be found along the west coast road.
Golf courses are within easy reach including Royal Westmoreland and Sandy Lane.
Within the local area:
Folkestone Marine Reserve and Visitors Center in Holetown and Barbados Wildlife Reserve in St Peter, where you can mingle with wild monkeys, deer, and more.
Tighlines is just off the main Highway 2A so you can reach all other attractions and places of interest easily, such as:
Farley Hill National Park
St Nicholas Abbey
Welchman Hall Gulley
The airport is a 45 minute drive, Bridgetown approximately 30 minutes, Holetown 15 minutes and Speightstown 10 minutes.
Car Hire is strongly recommended. Bus routes are close at hand and Barbados has a good taxi service.
