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.
