'Sunshine Paradise' is a two-story Residence with a beautiful upper Studio and a big breezy Patio where you can cook and enjoy your meals overlooking the caribbean Sea, the harbour and the golden-white Sand of Malibu Beach, one of the finest beaches on the West-Coast. You can also sit outside at the bar sipping a drink while admiring the stunning sunsets or lying in the hammock and listen to the sound of the waves.
The studio is one big livingroom-bedroom with a big double closet and a second room with a door and a double drapery.
The Master bedroom in the studio has a king-size four-poster bed and air-conditioning and a ceiling fan.
The smaller room has a single bed and a bed-sofa
The kitchen is outside on the patio always breezy and nice.
If you go some steps higher up from the Patio to the platform on the roof you can have a private sunbath or sit and watch out for sailing boats and the cruise-liners to pass by. From the patio you can also step down the circle staircase to the pool(with jacuzzi) and of course to the beach!
It takes only five to ten minutes to reach the town for shopping, entertainment and dining in the west-coast restaurants.
The owner(retired german dentist) is a member of the Golf Assoziation and can help you with a Tee-off time at the Sandy Lane Golf course.
The studio offers full amenities including maid service weekly and is specially suited for honeymooners and families with and without children.

We had a unforgettable stay at Sunshine Paradise. Every morning and evening we enjoyed the wonderfull view over the garden and the beach at the Veranda. We also enjoyed cooking at the outdoor kitchen. For Relaxing we did long walks on the beach or took the Kajak. Gertrud, the owner is the best and most helpful host! Thanks a lot for all your hospitality! Sunshine Paradise is perfect located for all activitys around the Island. We took a bus to see the wonderfull places. Even the bus tour was really funny. The Mount gay rum distillary, where we did a leadership tour, is worth seeing and only 10 minutes to walk. We hope to come back again soon ...
The place rivals top hotels in its design, decor, location and views. Very nice to take in the wonderful view while cooking in your outdoor kitchen and dining outside. Directly on the beach. If you wish to explore the island, you need to make friends, hire taxis or rent a car as the location is a bit isolated (not necessarily a negative if you wish to get away from it all). Truly stunning apartment.
The name says it all - Paradise it most certainly is and the description and photos hardly do it justice. My husband and I had a totally amazing and relaxing break in this wonderful location. The accommodation is outstanding and Gertrud, the owner, couldn't have been more friendly and helpful to us. I had long planned a visit to the island to check out my family history as my great grandmother and grandfather born here and Gertrud was on hand so many times to run us about in her car and to give advice on where I should look, and in fact I was able to find out a lot of information. Thank you so much for that Gertrud. The apartment was fabulous - we couldn't have been more comfortable and we did an awful lot of lounging about looking out over the sea and sampling the local rum! It was very windy and I was a bit nervous of getting blown out to sea when we used the canoe but it was great fun and all part of a marvellous holiday. We did hire a car for 3 days so we could see the rest of the island and found that the apartment was ideally situated for this. Altogether a fabulous break and I would recommend this property to anyone, not just friends or relatives.
We had a wonderful relaxing time at Sunshine Paradise. It is a beautiful place with beautiful gardens right on the water. It was so pleasant to wake up in the mornings and walk out to the veranda and see the sea. One of our favorite things to do was to walk the beach every morning. When we arrived on Saturday Gertrud took us to the grocery store so we were able to buy food for our visit. Since it was our first visit to Barbados we rented a car and explored the island, visiting different beaches, walked through a tropical rain forest and saw the beautiful North Point. Barbados is truly a beautiful Island and the people are very friendly. The property was very nicely decorated, clean and we would certainly recommend this place.
Two of my sisters and I spent a wonderful 10 nights here. The apartment is just as described and pictured! Gertrud gave great directions for the taxi driver, so no difficulty finding the place. Gertrud offered to take us to get groceries the first morning, but an easy walk to the store for us. How convenient to have our own breakfast and lunch, so only needed to buy evening meals daily, and we found that 2 meals were sufficient for the three of us....more money to enjoy the sites! We literally had no problem walking up and down the beach the first 3 days. A lovely art studio within walking distance, and the best beach restaurant and bar, Weisers on the Bay, and easy walk every evening. We did rent a car for 3 days to explore the island, but bus within walking distance, and taxis reasonably priced. NO COMPLAINTS AT ALL about this rental. If I ever get to Barbados again, I will definitely stay here. Gertrud gave us fresh coconuts and she even built a fire on her private beach last evening, and we introduced her to S'mores! We visited the Animal Flower Caves, Oistins, Welchman Hall Gully, a great art studio in Speightstown, drove to the East Coast...and my favorite, the Zipline. Actually wish we'd had the car longer to visit some pottery places, but driving is not for the faint of heart for those of us used to driving on the right side of the road. Gertrud was a wealth of knowledge of things to see and do, and I don't know when I have ever been so relaxed on a vacation! Thank you, Gerturd, and I hope to see you again some day!
This was our first experience with VRBO and we were delighted. Gertrud was a knowledgable and genial owner. Her hospitality included introducing us to the joys of breadfruit roasted in the firepit on the beach under the stars. Heavenly. The listing description and photos were accurate but could never capture the magic of the place. Brighton Beach is right outside the gate - wonderful beach for swimming, walking, people watching and connecting with the friendly and polite Bajans (I kept thinking how sad it is that we have lost those niceties in urban Canada). We ate in for about half of our meals - the kitchen is basic but servicable. Gertrud drove us to the new grocery store up the hill to stock up on food and Bajan rum. We found 2 great restaurants within walking distance. We recommend renting a car and touring the island. The villages are closer together than it looks on the map and we had many adventures getting lost. We loved Speightstown (up island about 25 minutes) -a fishing village with lots of character and great for purchasing local produce. One of the best parts of each day was after dinner when we would sit up on the rooftop deck - watching the sun set, the cruise ships come in and out and listening to the whistling frogs and mourning doves. Thanks Gertrud for sharing your home with us - we have recommended to everyone we know!
