The property was well equiped with everything you would wish for. It was clean and well maintained throughout our stay. It was not clutterred with personal belongings so we felt it was our 'place' for the holiday.
The owner provided excellant support with telephone numbers of contacts and taxis.
We would definately recommend this property.
Good restaurants available within short walking ditance.
Hunte's garden a must to see.
I have stayed at here twice, once in July 2008 for a long weekend and in September 2008 for 4 weeks.
The pictures are exactly what you will find and the description is accurate regarding the location, layout and facilities:
Air-conditioned bedroom with remote control was a necessity, worked very well, wasn’t noisy so didn’t keep me awake all night! Television with island and cable TV, DVD/CD audio all worked perfectly. High speed broadband for laptop that actually worked! Patio doors and iron gate that open onto terrace and gardens. Although I don’t like the aesthetic of the iron gate they are there for safety as you are on the ground floor. Refitted bathroom with shower, en-suite dressing area with basin, vanity unit, hairdryer and wardrobes...all very clean. Built in safe (even though it is a key lock, it is good to have a safe to store valuables). Separate fully equipped kitchen with oven and hob, microwave, large fridge/freezer, all working fine and clean. Generous provision of cutlery, crockery and glassware. Literally a few steps through the tropical garden to the beach, it’s so close, I practically lived on the beach! All linen including face, hand, bath and beach towels provided and all very clean. Maid service was excellent.
Pat and the owner are amazing, so helpful and accommodating. I wanted to stay an extra week in September, the kitchen was supposed to be re-furbished the week I was leaving but the owner sorted it out so that I could stay the extra week and refurbishments done a week later. I was so grateful!
I would recommend this apartment to anyone who is looking for a well looked after apartment in an amazing location, an all you need, hassle free holiday. It really does have all the amenities needed for a self catering holiday, is near to all the local restaurants, supermarkets and entertainment. I am planning on going back very soon!!!
Really nice, clean, well maintained apartment with everything you need for a self catering holiday - lots of pots, pans, crockery and cutlery. We were lazy though and decided to eat out, except for breakfast and lunch. Really great position - about 9 restaurants and 3 or 4 bars right on your doorstep but not in anyway noisey. Great quiet pool in lush gardens - beware the mosquitos! Lots of sunbeds and brollies to use beside it. Gardens and pool kept beautifully. Look out for the family of monkeys and the mongoose. Easy access to beach which stretched for about 2 miles - walked it most days - enough exercise for anyone! Pat, local resident who looks after the keys for the owner was extremely helpful answering any queries we had and arranging welcome pack and taxis. Lots of tourist information books and leaflets to look through and a personal note about the apartments from the owners.
Favourite restaurant is still 'Tides' although can only afford it for special occasions.Others for better value are Zaccios, Surfside, Just Grilling (a fast food take out or eat in place) Oistins fish market is a great place to visit on a Friday night although quite a run. Our favourite is Sunday night in 1st street when all the locals congregate outside the local chattel bar for kareoke in the street - 'X factor' has got nothing on this!!
Having been to Holetown for several holidays to the Sandpiper Hotel, we decided this time to have a self catering holiday and we were not disappointed. The apartment was very comfortable and most important was clean and serviced regularly. It is situated very conveniently to several excellent restaurants and to the local shops, also had immediate access to the beach.
We enjoyed our stay to the extent that we will certainly return and recommend it to others
1)I wanted to say thank you for such a wonderful holiday in November. We had a fantastic time at Palm Beach and are keen to go back again in the future. The apartments were super and just what we needed and the location was just perfect. I have also recommended it to friends and colleagues who may be looking to go on a Caribbean holiday. Hope you have had a good 2008 so far and thanks again.
2)I just wanted to write and say how much we enjoyed our holiday to Barbados. The accommodation was perfect, very comfortable and well equipped and such a great location! We both loved the island, and ate out at many of the restaurants you recommended. The weather was fantastic and we both came back feeling refreshed and tanned! I look forward to hopefully going again in the future.
Holetown is approximately a 35 minute drive from the airport. In the immediate vicinity you will find restaurants, bars and a very fine bakery/Patisserie. The centre of Holetown is about a 5 minute stroll from the apartment and include multiple shops, banks, post office, police station etc. The shopping mall has a coffee area, Small duty free Cave Shepherd outlet, a well stocked supermarket, Internet cafe and boutiques. An additional walk of 5 minutes will bring you to a larger Cave Shepherd Duty Free shop.
There are numerous bars/restaurants within walking distance for a variety of budgets. There are restaurants specialising in Italian, Indian or Thai as well as traditional Bajan food.
The island has the relatively tranquil Caribbean Sea on the west coast and and on the east coast the invigorating Atlantic Ocean.
