Speightstown is a lovely part of Barbados, we enjoyed walking in to the little town, beautiful beaches, lovely places to eat and drink and not so busy as other places on the west coast, the apartment was quite basic and very clean and suited our needs the price was very good, Gabriel was very helpful and nothing was too much trouble, the apartment is in a residential area only 10 minutes easy walk from the beach and village shops, the bakery opposite The Orange Street Bakery ( also very good)is well worth a visit, Little Bristol beach bar does good food and has a good atmosphere,Jordons supermarket stocked most things you need and we also bought tuna and marlin from the fish market at a very good price. It was wonderful to see monkeys on our first morning on the telegraph wires in front of the apartment as well as hummingbirds, the only negative comment was the neighbourhood dogs constant barking.
Our family recently returned from our one-week stay at Vuemont, and we all thoroughly enjoyed our time there. The apartment is set up perfectly for a family like ours - 2 adults, 2 boys 11 & 14 - with an en-suite queen bed in one room, and twin beds in the other. Both bedrooms are air-conditioned, but both have wonderful breezes and airflow. There is a second bathroom with shower, very functional, and a compact but well-equipped kitchen. The washer/dryer was a huge plus, allowing us to pack a lot less than normal. The enormous balcony is a huge plus as well, with plenty of chairs to go 'round!
The location of the unit is also excellent - positioned right in between the two swimming pools, but also a short skip to the tennis courts and exercise room. The common areas at Vuemont are really terrific, and were a great addition to our overall holiday. The area is easy enough to find and get to, just a few minutes from the ABC Highway, but is still quiet and undisturbed. My only caveat would be that if you are looking for a 'beach' holiday, the drive back and forth to the coast might wear you out! However, if you are like us, and have a car, and look to explore the entire island, the apartment at Vuemont is an excellent value, and the hosts were lovely and helpful.
