traveler reviews for this barbados apartment rental

Best location, best hosts!!!

Review submitted: September 15, 2012   Date of arrival: August 15, 2012

We stayed 2 and half week in Margaret and Bill's flat with our 2 young children (1 year old and 2 and a half years old) and we had the best holidays ever. The flat had everything we needed, and Margaret tried her best to accomodate our stay with a second cot, she even lent us her blender so we could cook for the children. There were no high chair but we managed without them just fine. the flat is very safe and there is a terrace and a little outdoor space which is perfect to relax when you are not out and about. In terms of location, the flat is just 20 min walk away from one of the 2 beat beaches on the island ( I think theyare anyway), Gibbs beach which is nearly desert everyday, with lots of shade and calm water and a little bit further north Mullins Beach which is beautiful, with even better sand than Gibbs and where you can rent sun loungers and where there is a restaurant with excellent food ( but a little bit on the pricey side). You need to be in good shape to come back from the beach to the flat by foot as it is very much uphill, we used to take a taxi as we did not have a car and it cost 10 Barbadian dollars. However, if we hadn'thave 2 children in a pushchair we would have enjoyed coming back by foot. We absolutly loved staying a little bit inland, as we got to meet the locals on the way to the beach and got to see a little bit more of the way Bajan people live (very laid back!), everybody in the community was so friendly to us, helping us with little things anytime they could. There is a little convenience shop 5 min walk from the flat but you will need to go to a proper supermarket if you intend to cook at home as they will not have everything you need there. Bear in mind that food and basic items are very expensive in Barbados. I could not imagine a better place to stay in Barbados, I would definitly come back to the same place, even if the future we could afford the luxurious accommodation of the beach front. The location and Margaret and Bill made the whole holidays more authentic and memorable.Thank you a million times!!

Tightlines - home away from home

Review submitted: January 24, 2012   Date of arrival: December 16, 2011

Maggie and Bill are the greatest hosts. Very nice clean bright apartment. The apartment is a good base if you wish to rent a car and tour the island. Beautiful flower garden and nice patio to unwind and relax on after a day of adventure. Hard to be home sick when the hosts make you feel so at home. We will come back again and again.
