Schooner Bay is impeccably maintained and offers a truly relaxing vacation. We walked to Mullens Beach (great for kids), and many excellent restaurants and it is a short cab ride to the best restaurants (The Tides was excellent). We walked to the best bakery every morning and got fresh pastries (although there was no coffee shop in the area).We were happy to be able to reserve this condo at the last minute. It is a particularly expensive week and we found that dinner prices were somewhat ridculous. Swimming we were told is the best and safest in this location and they were right. We didn't have to worry about currents and there was ample beach area here wherein other villas, hotels, did not have that luxury. I would visit Barbados again but probably not at it's most expensive time to rent.
