My trip to Barbados was a difficult one as I was taking my daughter to join the University at Cave Hill. Settling her in was a task and not knowing my surroundings would have made it even more difficult. I remember wondering how will I ever do this but it was made possible with our Angel Lavern, who absolutely extended herself in every way possible.
Lavern took the time to explain where we could go to shop for items and even took us along with her where possible to get the best deals. When we were stranded at night as UWI in the rain without being able to get a cab, Lavern came to the rescue.
Lavern's place is a home away from home, it actually makes you feel like you can live there - clean, crisp, well decorated absolutely homely and most important it is situated in close proximity of a number restaurants from fast food to fine dining, beaches in walking distance, access to a beautiful pool area, stone throw away from the supermarket and gas station. Lavern's place is so comfortable fitted with everything possible, things that I would not even think of like sewing essentials. There are not enough stars to rate Lavern's hospitality she arranged transport to and from airport, she arranged car rental, she drew maps, led the way to various places so that I can find it easily, always checking in to make sure I returned safely and not too mention even with my flight being delayed she was there waiting at 11:45pm in the night to greet me and show me through the apartment, leaving water, coffee and tea for in morning until I can get to the supermarket - just awesome value for the price!!!!! One thing I know is that I will be returning to Lavern's place from now on and encourage anyone else to do the same. Lavern thank you ever so much for all your help until we meet again.
Mata's apartment is perfectly located in Holetown. We spent a month in Barbados and tried a few different locations - Holetown was perfect for us. Everything you need is close by and buses run through every few minutes if you want to explore further. The apartment was spotless and the yard was swept daily by Mata's son. It is a very comfortable and roomy space. Mata is a wonderful hostess and made sure that we enjoyed our time both in her apartment and in Barbados. When we had to leave she even donated a piece of luggage for us to save extra expense on the plane! We already miss our time with Mata and look forward to coming back!
