Emcee is a smashing villa. Spacious and well equipped. The plunge pool particularly welcome after blisteringly hot days sightseeing. The air con is very effective and you need it. The beds are comfy and the living/kitchen with patio is bright and airy. Endless hot water from the solar panels. The neighbourhood is large and mostly families; everyone speaks to you and is friendly. One chap even said “thank you for coming” which was lovely. You feel very safe. You really need a car to stay here but watch out for the roads. Potholes a speciality! Two major supermarkets - Jordan’s in Speightstown is colourful and local. Massys in Holetown is very Waitrose/Whole Foods. Wine is hideously expensive. I'm glad I bought some at duty free in Bridgetown airport. The beer is good and cheap and the rum punch served everywhere is an experience. Powerful stuff.
Speightstown has a charm of its own; lots of different shops and plenty of eateries. Worth visiting Hunte's Garden. It's a delight. The boat trips are good value for money and give that other perspective of the place.
Dealings with Kate the owner have been delightful. All questions answered quickly. The local contact lady, Helen, dealt with our one issue speedily.
Thoroughly recommend Emcee and would stay again. SatNav would help you find it more easily if arriving in the dark.
In summary, great place, great location. There are so many rental properties to choose from around here but you won’t go far wrong with this sweet place.
We recently stayed here on a trip to Barbados in November 2018. Gorgeous apartment with large terrace overlooking the ocean. This is one of the few apartments that overlooks the ocean. We were steps to the beach which was very quiet and only for residents and guests of the Port St. Charles marina. Security would set up chairs and umbrellas for us. A short walk into Speightstown and a short bus ride into Holetown. We were able to do scuba diving with "Reefers and Wreckers" right off the beach. Very cool experience. Would recommend this apartment and Port St. Charles.
