About Janina Galler

I am a physician-scientist and have been conducting research studies in Barbados for many years. We live in Boston and also spend long periods of time in Barbados.

Janina Galler purchased this condo in 1985

Why Janina Galler chose Glitter Bay

We watched this property being built and were among its earliest owners. The beautiful location and sea views, the expansive landscaped grounds (where our daughters chased pigeons) , the friendly staff and proximity to Bridgetown made this an ideal property for us. Our daughters named the apartment 'Golden Sunsets' because of the breathtaking golden, red and lilac sunsets that we celebrate daily during our visits to the island. We consider 'Golden Sunsets' our home and hope you will enjoy the premises as much as we do!

What makes this condo unique

Our apartment is very spacious and one of the largest units at Glitter Bay. The apartment is a Penthouse and has expansive ocean views from all balconies. Our views are among the best at Glitter Bay, because of the property location near the sea. Because the apartment layout, all three bedroom patios face the sea and have unencumbered views of the water, which is unusual. Most important, 'Golden Sunsets' is our home and provides the comforts of living in a modern home with all of the amenities of a special resort environment offered by The Glitter Bay Estate.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We just thought we would drop you a note to say we have had a wonderful holiday at Glitter Bay. Your condo is modern & fresh and furnished to a high standard. The terraces off each room offer amazing views and very much bigger than we expected.



We were welcomed by all the staff, Duncan, Rocky on the beach along with Allan & Tyrell & Scully behind the bar. Dave the driver was great and always available when we needed a ride.



We have arrived home relaxed and refreshed - our girls were upset to leave and so always a sign of an amazing holiday, we all hope to return next year.



Thank you for letting us rent your holiday home & we don’t mind saying we are jealous that you have such a beautiful second home!

Best Vacation Ever

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 spent spent 2 weeks at Golden Sunsets, and we are already looking forward to our return visit. My kids loved the beach right at your doorsetp, the large double pool (with a separate pool for the little ones) and the new huge tv/dvd. My husband and I enjoyed the beautiful setting, the spacious and tastefully appointed apartment, the quiet dinners on our balcony at sunset, and the great staff. This was a magical vacation

Apt. 304 at Glitter Bay is beautiful

  • 5 of 5

Four of us shared this wonderful apartment, beautifully furnished with both sea and pool views. Conveniently located, for a wide choice of restaurants and shopping. Dave picking us up at the airport meant we had the best start to our holiday. We were greeted on arrival at 304 by Shenay who gave us an excellent introduction to our holiday home for 3 weeks. Even the fridge was stocked with essentials. For the whole holiday we didn't have to lift a finger, as the lovely Samantha cleaned, washed and ironed for us. She was also happy to cook local caribbean meals when required and everthing with a big smile!

Shequila, our concierge, did a great job booking restaurants etc. plus printing out our boarding passes for return flight to London. Alan, Wanda and Francia provided amazing and friendly service at the beach bar. Their rum punches and light lunches were sensational. We were all very sorry to leave Glitter Bay and are already planning our return in 2016.

WHO COULD ASK FOR MORE

WHO COULD ASK FOR MORE

I have just returned from a wonderful two weeks stay in apartment 304 at Glitter Bay. It is a beautiful apartment, tastefully furnished to an excellent standard. The views are superb. It is very light, airy and comfortable.

When I arrived Nuru (the Apartment Manager) was there to greet me. She was so helpful, efficient and charming and made me feel very welcome. Nothing was too much trouble for her and, as I was on my own, this was very re-assuring – I knew that if I required anything whatsoever, she would be on hand.

I have stayed in Barbados for over 10 years and have stayed at various locations at St James but Glitter Bay has the WOW factor.

The combination of Nuru and Apartment 304 is an irresistible reason why I want to book again for the same time next year. I will be counting the days!!!

Brilliant place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We have visted Barbados for over 16 years at Christmas and New Year and generally stayed at hotels on the west coast. However 2 years ago we wanted a change and decided to stay in an apartment at Glitter Bay. We stay at 304 and what a great decision it has turned out to be. The apartment is huge and fully refurbished with great views out to see. The maid Samantha is a real gem keeping everything perfect and in addition does any extra washing and ironing.

The facilities at GB are 100% perfect....best beach/beach bar/gym and great location very near Holetown. The question to ask about a holiday is would you go back......We have and will be doing so again so thank you Janina for let us stay in your beautiful apartment.

Simply sublime

  • 5 of 5

Firstly the details. Description was accurate regarding everything, in fact slightly undersold. The property looked like something out of a Homes and garden magazine. Dealing directly with the owner was easy and helpful. It would be mean of me not to recommend to other people although I would like to keep it to myself as we intend returning.

Now our impressions. We normally holiday in a hotel and I was dubious as to whether I would still be chief cook and bottle washer - not here, I didn't lift a finger.

Stunning apartment newly refurbished in neutral colours throughout which looked as if it had been done by an interior designer. Plentiful clean towels supplied daily. Three en suite bedrooms all with balcony which felt like being in hotel rooms but with the added space of dining and lounge/terrace areas. Maid service six days a week meant that other than loading breakfast things in to the dishwasher, there was nothing to do. Stunning views of the pool area and out to sea.

Duncan met us upon arrival, showed us around and explained everything, juts like five star hotel service.

Glitter bay beach allocates your sun chairs and umbrellas upon arrival so no silly fighting for position in the morning. There are clean pool and beach towels all day long. A fresh water shower for both body and feet when exiting the beach to rinse off the sand and salt is nice.

Alan rocky and co provide great bar and beach service and are fun and friendly. The concierge is great In Arranging tours, golf, restaurants etc.

Grounds and pool are tranquil and the place never seems busy. The monkeys provide much entertainment.

Lunches were taken either next door at the fairmont watersports centre or a stroll along the beach at JuJu's beach shack.

So many good restaurants a short taxi ride away (glitter bay will organise Perry for you) in the cliff, tides, nishi, cariba, Scarlets, royal pavilion seafood buffet, cin cin and the refurbished Lonestar which has definitely improved and we love because we can walk to it along the perfectly safe beach at night and leave shoes in the apartment.

We thoroughly recommend calabaza sailing cruises who picked us up from our beach and we had two evenings great fishing with local fishermen. Aqua tiger is the best watersports guy on the beach. Run by owner tony he really knows how to teach people to waterski and board and we used him daily. He operates by appointment and operates to time.

Great hols

Loved the apartment. Love Barbados.

  • 5 of 5

Actually stayed a few years ago but now considering another trip to Barbados and remembered that we didn't do a review of Glitter Bay. We loved it! Stayed with three young kids who all still talk about the apartment. Very clean, very comfortable, great location, great views of the beach, and great facility in general. Really can't think of anything bad to say.
