Just a short distance from Speightstown to the north, the island’s second largest town, (about 5 minutes drive). Once known as Little Bristol because of connections to Bristol on the West Coast of England, Speightstown still has a feel of old time Barbados about it. There is a fish market on the seafront, fruit and vegetable sellers on the road side, a couple of local restaurants, bars and shops, plus a very well stocked supermarket.
The island has the relatively tranquil Caribbean Sea on the west coast and and on the east coast the invigorating Atlantic Ocean.

Guestbook comments from the manager
The apartment is on the top floor which gives excellent views over the pool, looking across the main road towards the trees of the houses opposite towards the sea at the front, and up the hill to adjacent (but not close) properties at the rear. There is a similar block of apartments on the same complex to the rear, but not close enough to be problematic. From the balcony at the front, as you breakfast, you can watch the primary chidren playing in the grounds before the school day began: this was hugely entertaining! We didn't anticipate Barbados being quiet, and so traffic noise from the road didn't bother us: it's fairly subdued, and with the breeze in the trees, and the birdsong it just all mingled together. Sunsets over the sea from the balcony gave great photo opportunities. The bedrooms at the rear get the sunrise: blinds keep out the light and heat as much as you want, while allowing breezes in. The rear balcony has a clothes dryer: things I washed on a quick wash were dry the next day.
The main bedroom (ensuite) is spacious and nicely decorated; storage is bedside drawers and a wardrobe. The bed is huge and really comfortable. The twin bedroom (bathroom over the hallway) is a good size; storage is chests of drawers, a rack of hooks.
The kitchen area is well equipped with all the things you would expect; we never used the dishwasher; the washing machine was a great aid. The kitchen is to the side of the lounge area, so it was great to be able to talk whilst cooking, but not feel that the kitchen dominated the room. We took the two easy chairs out onto the balcony during the day: plenty of room with the table and 4 chairs on the balcony to one side. We went inside once it got dark to avoid bites!
While we were there, there was only one other couple, on the ground floor, so the apartment complex was incredibly quiet.
The apartment was spotless and cleaned once during our two week stay. It was easy to keep clean, especially as we used the shower and tap by the pool to remove sand before entering the complex.
Because there are bus stops outside the complex, it was easy to travel north to Speightstown, and south to Holeto
