This home is actually 2 separate apartments each with it's own entrance, each with 2 bedrooms, 2 bath, kitchen, living room, dining room. Both include air conditioned bedrooms and living rooms, satellite TV, DVD player, CD player, large gas grill for outdoor cooking. Both apartments boast 1200+ - sq ft of living space. Our home is conveniently located with only a 5 minute walk to the beach, grocery store and various other shops. Sunset & Surf house can be rented as one unit for larger families and groups. Maximum of 4 adults per apartment. An ocean view from the balcony is most impressive.
Sunset and Surf house exceeded our expectations ! Photo's do not do it justice. We stayed in the upper floor two bedroom unit . Wonderful views of the Caribbean Sea from the balcony , loved watching the cruise ships come and go. The house is a short walk to the beach , bus stop and grocery store. We only had a rental car for part of our stay but were able to travel very easily via the buses . Holetown and Bridgetown are both just short bus rides away. We enjoyed being in a less touristy area , the neighbours are all very friendly and we soon felt like part of the neighbourhood . Misti responded promptly and knowledgeably to all our queries . We were fortunate that Misti stayed in the bottom floor apartment for a time while we were there and we saw first hand how she takes pride in her property and is always working to maintain and improve it . LOVED the pool , even after a day at the beach we still would use the pool to cool off after our walk home up the hill. The furnishings were all very comfortable, air conditioning worked well and we lucked out with Misti installing a brand new washer and dryer while we were there . We arrived to find a welcome basket with bread, eggs, milk, tea, coffee, butter etc so much appreciated as we arrived late at night after the stores were closed. Only thing missing was a cold beer :) Barbados is not a large island but there is a wealth of things to see and do, we stayed 3 months and still have things to go see if we should ever return to the island. Bajan people are unfailingly friendly, kind and welcoming. One absolute must do is the Friday night fish fry in Oistin 's . We would take the bus earlier in the day and go spend the day at Rockley Beach and then continue the short distance from there to Oistins for the evening. We always felt perfectly safe riding the buses even later at night , the drive sometimes was a little wild but that just makes for good stories when you get home ! The kitchen is well equipped , lots of dishes and pots and pans. Being long stay folks we probably cooked a little more than people would on a shorter vacation . As Canadians we liked that in Barbados many of our Banks have branches there , we saw RBC, Scotiabank and CIBC . It was always easy to find a branch with an ATM to get cash.
Thank-you Misti for making a very comfortable home away from home.
Thank you for a “wonder filled” vacation at your happy Sunset and Surf home. Airy, light, cheerful and sun-drenched are easy words to describe the S&S. The location was ideal; close enough to a lot of activities and shopping, and off the track enough to feel peace and quiet. The pool was great and the bonus amenities like clothes washer, computer, and the thoughtful “starter” groceries made for an unforgettable stay. Hope to be back again and again. Cheers!
Family of 4 with two young children and this home was ideal. The comforts of home while relaxing in paradise, it doesn't get any better. A 5 minute walk to bus stops (which are such a great way to explore this beautiful island), local grocery store, and the very best beach (hidden gem indeed!) on the island. The owner and house manager are lovely people and were exceptional in insuring our vacation was perfect.
Spent the morning on the patio absorbed in the beauty of Barbados while the kiddos swam in the pool. Walked down to the bus stops and spent the day exploring the entire island, and then returned for an afternoon of fun at the Fitts Village beach. Moonlight dinners on the patio and an occasional spotting of fireflies - truly magical!
You will not find a better option in Barbados. This is the way to stay and play!
Our family of 4 stayed in the lower level (friends stayed upstairs) and found it to be a wonderful home to stay in. Our boys enjoyed the "like home" feeling and found the house very comfortable. It is a safe and quiet neighbourhood and close 5min walk to groceries/liquor, beach and bus/taxi. The home is very clean and the pool is perfect for children. Location of the home is a quick bus ride to nice beaches and Holetown. Easy access to Bridgetown as well. We would recommend to anyone visiting Barbados and wanting to stay on the west coast. We would stay here again.
Perfect place to stay for a family getaway. Quiet area, close to beach and market, Holetown minutes away by car. Small pool is great for days not at the beach. Everything you will need for a great holiday. Would rate 10 out of 10. Will return again and again!
