The rental property is a cozy, comfortable, clean unit within a 5 to 7 minute walk to the entrance to the public beach and is one block from the main beach road (with regular bus service to and from Bridgetown). Sandy Lane beach (one of the best beaches in the west coast of Barbados) is an additional 10 minute walk from the condo. Holetown (the 2nd largest town in Barbados) is a 7 minute walk north from the condo with local services available like supermarkets, restaurants, health clinics and the brand new Limegrove Shopping Centre with great upscale shops (Louis Vutton, etc.), a new cinema, restaurants, etc.
The condo is immediately next door to Sunset Mall that has a local bank, a large duty free store (Cave Sheppard), photo shop (with Internet service) and other smaller shops. There is also a mini-mall across the street that has a convenience store and coffee shop (with free internet) . In addition, there is a local food van that sells lunch from monday to friday with local Barbados (Bajan) food such as chicken, pork, fish, etc., parks immediately across the street from the condo and has very reasonable prices that is a nice option from the more expensive restaurants in the area.
The condo has one bedroom with a queen size bed and air-conditioning. The kitchen has a fridge, stove, microwave, and is fully equipped. The sitting\dining room has a couch (that converts into a small additional double bed), two separate lounging arm chairs, a ceiling fan, cable TV , DVD & VHS player and a CD-AM\FM radio unit. There is also a small breakfast\dining table with four chairs next to the kitchen. The en-suite washroom (100% renovated in 2010) has a shower only (no bathtub). The front enclosed patio has a table and chairs for lounging. There is also a BBQ grill (charcoal) available for use that can be rolled out to the front lawn for those who like to bbq their fish or meats. There is also a private parking spot in front of condo (for a rental car, guest parking, etc.).
A pay-as-you go cell phone is also available for use by guests that will enable guests to make local and oversea calls (without incurring roaming charges) and also to receive calls from family and friends from abroad.
The condo's location immediately near the beach, shopping, restaurants, 24 hr. medical clinic and Holetown ensure that guests do not have to rent a car while in Barbados if they do not want to do so since everything is essentially within a 10-15 minute walk from the condo.
Green monkeys may also be seen in the neighbourhood, particularly early in the mornings near the Europa All Seasons Resort (2 block walk from the condo). They usually feed by the ravine area (ask the locals where to spot them!).
There is also a brand new Boardwalk (1st stage completed Dec 2009 and the 2nd stage completed in Dec 2013) by the seaside that runs from the local beach in a northernly direction towards Holetown and beyond and is home to additional beaches and beachside bars and restaurants (approximately for 1 km.). This Boardwalk has also recently been extended beyond Holetown and now provides for a fabulous walk (45 min to 1 hour) all the way northwards in the direction of Speightstown and is a fantastic addition to things to do in our local area.
