Barbados offers an opportunity to experience a Caribbean lifestyle influenced by its traditional British history.The first settlers arrived in1627, and the island still retains its British Parliamentary system. It has a reliable infrastructure, and offers the comforts and safety of most Western countries.

Since the island is roughly triangular in shape, the 3 coasts offer a totally different ambience. The east coast bordered by the Atlantic ocean, is wild, rugged, beautiful, isolated, and unsuitable for swimming in most areas. The south coast, has heavy surf, and is more industrial, commerical, and has numerous fast food outlets, and local markets. The west coast, known internationally as the Platinum Coast,borders the blue Caribbean Sea, which is normally calm and suitable for all varieties of water sports.

As Barbados lies outside the hurricane belt, usual weather is blue sunny skies and white puffy clouds, normal showers being of short duration. Average daily high 30C. Sea temperature's a constant 80F.

We are a retired couple who have been spending our winters here for the past 20 years, we live the rest of the year in Canada. We love Barbados, the friendly people, the great climate, ('hurricanes hardly happen' - last one was more than 50 years ago) - the ease of living here. Everything we need is close by, including gourmet take out, home baked bread, croissants etc. Restaurants when ever we wish to eat out, - a life style without troubles!

The Owner purchased this condo in 1989

Purchasing this condo was a 'love at first sight' property - fabulous panoramic view, easy walkable proximity to everything,shops,restaurants,beach, on our doorstep, garden,pool- good security, good island infrastructure, and drinkable water out of the tap!! stable economy and reliable banking, friendly people, -a unique, once in a lifetime opportunity! We'd been staying in hotels on the island since 1975, and came to realize that there was no other place on earth which offered all that Barbados could provide. It seemed beyond crazy to ignore the once in a once in a lifetime opportunity that came along when we found our condo winter home. We realized that if we didn't purchase it there and then, we would regret it for the rest of our lives! So we've live there happily ever since and only return to Canada when the weather warms up!

Easy access (4 min. walk)to stores, bars, restuarants, banks, piano bar, etc.- NOT on the main road so NO constant traffic noise - Instant access to the beach - which is only 10 feet away, I walk 4 miles on the beach every morning! - garden with pool plus sun and shade with trees,flowers, umbrellas, garden furniture. - Safety. - Easy access (4 min. walk) bank, to bus into city, or taxis, or car hire. Supermarket will even deliver groceries.

Had a wonderful time in Barbados. It's a beautiful island. Sunsets were remarkable, Pat and Harold were great - in fact, everyone I met was wonderful. Went to Bridgetown, Speightstown and to see the Atlantic. The food was great. I tried several different dishes. I arrived back in Minnesota to beautiful fall colors and brisk fall weather - which was welcome after the heat in Barbados.

It was interesting watching the beach work! Thank you

We had a wonderful time at your winter home. We arrived to have Pat inform us that a tropical storm was coming that night. Kind of made us wonder what we were in for,but we had nothing but a rain! Worked for us! We had great weather after that!

Vita and Pat were both lovely and very helpful.
The girls went surfing. The surf dude even picked us up and brought back for $10 US! They loved it! We went to Oistin fish fry on the bus, the drag show at Raggamuffins and had lots of fun.
We could use the beach and water without problem. The erosion is severe however, so the restoration is very necessary. The sand is already starting to fill in between the reef and the shoreline.
Thanks again

Thanks dayle and George, we had a wonderful time at your place, everything was perfect. Yes, the weather could have been a little sunnier but it did not spoil a wonderful break in Barbados.

The apartment was great and the maid did a brilliant job. Pat was really helpful and everyone around palm beach were really friendly.

We will definitely recommend your place to friends and family.

Many thanks

Danielle and Paul

Had a great time at condo #1. As all the previous reviews stated you can't beat the location and views of the sea. We had a great meal our last night in Barbados at the Tides. Also enjoyed a bunch of Holetown dinners and a tour of Harrison's cave. Pat, Helen, Vita and Harold took very good care of us, answering the few questions we had.
Thanks again for sharing your home in paradise.
