About the property

1 bedroom (twin beds) or king, 1 full bathroom, sleeps a maximum of 3

Our second floor apartment in Golden View is of superior quality, well furnished, fully equipped and is located just a few hundred metres from the beautiful white sand beaches of the Caribbean. The 4 acre Golden View condominium property has a large 25 metre fresh water pool, complete with a pool-side bar and restaurant. Our spacious balcony overlooks the beautiful garden area with its profusion of tropical plants, flowers and trees. Within the building is a coin-operated laundromat for the convenience of owners and guests, as well as a

high speed internet service which is available in the library.

Meet and greet service - : For stays of 10 days or more, we offer our complimentary 'meet and greet' service including your personal reception at Grantley Adams International Airport by our on-island rep, who will greet you outside the customs area and arrange for your comfortable transportation by taxi to Golden View (and back again following your vacation). The following day, by appointment, our management rep. will brief you on Barbados in general, plus places to go, sights to see, places to eat, tours, rentals, reservations, etc…, any or all of which may be arranged for you if desired. The service of our rep for consultation / advice is available throughout your vacation and on an emergency basis 24 hours a day. For stays of less than 10 days, this service is optional, at an additional cost of US $80, about the same as a return taxi fare to Golden View.

Miscellaneous - : The bedroom air conditioner is coin-operated. The Barbados one dollar coin is used exclusively and provides one hour of operation. A rollaway bed is available for a third person. The tap water in Barbados is pure and safe. The switchboard is operated by a receptionist and/or security guard 24 hours a day. Our 'Game drawer' contains several games that may be used at your leisure, such as chess, checkers, cribbage, backgammon, dominos, scrabble, Shut the Box, and playing cards.

Facilities and things to do in the neighbourhood -: Barbados is regarded as 'the jewel' of the Caribbean, and the west coast in St.James is affectionately known as 'the platinum coast' because of its clean, glittering beaches and spectacular sunsets. Unlike the turbulent east coast, our waters are calm, clear and warm. It is ideal for swimming, snorkeling, wind surfing, water skiing, scuba diving or just relaxing on the beach enjoying the sun, sand and sights. The Beach House in Sunset Crest on the sea shore is only five minutes from Golden View, and features a pool, bar, and restaurant. The West Side Tennis Club is adjacent and the 45 hole championship Sandy Lane Golf Club is next door. Also in the community are 2 shopping malls, with department stores, speciality shops, restaurants, a full service (President's Choice) grocery store and several banks. A 'chattel house village' of additional speciality shops caters to vacationers' every need. There are 25 restaurants, from fast food to fine dining, within walking distance.

Holetown experience

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is a short walk from the beach, the shops and restaurants at Holetwown and the frequent bus service along the west coast to Bridgetown one way and Speightstown the other. It is well furnished, having a large bedroom with twin beds and a couch to sleep a third person and the bathroom is separate. The living/dining room has a galley kitchen fully equipped for cooking and a balcony overlooking the garden. There is a laundry room on site and ironing facilities in the apartment. A fan in each room or coin operated air conditioning keep the apartment cool. It is serviced twice weekly. There is a TV, radio and video/DVD. The garden is large and has a pool with a good value chineses restaurant and bar adjoining.The free taxi service to and from the airport for stays of 10 days or more is organised by Tina whose assistance in arranging activities is very useful particularly on a first trip to Barbados. My fortnight's visit in 2009 was my 7th consecutive annual stay in the apartrment. Need I say more?

Many thanks for letting me stay at 227 Goldenview. It was a special year for us as I turned the big 50 and Mom the big 80. We wanted to stay at Goldenview where we have so many friends,and special memories. It was so nice to walk into a well kept apartment that is completley equipped with anything one would want or need for their vacation stay. It is very comfortable and of course close to everything that we needed. The weather was perfect. I even managed to get Mom in the ocean. I got the rest I was seeking and enjoyed the pool as well as garden. The poolside restaurant was so good we had a few meals there as well

as many afternoons with friends enjoying Happy Hour. I can't tell you

how impressed I am with the management service you have taking care of your unit. One morning the coffee maker stopped working and

we had a new one that evening so never went without coffee the next

day or the remainder of the trip. Avril the maid did a lovely job and is so friendly. When I compare this the other units we have stayed in over the years yours is top knoch.

Beautiful Barbados

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for 3 weeks in June - absolutely fantastic! The condo is beautiful - immaculately clean, very comfortable, 5 mins from shops/beach and with every gadget you could ever need. Don (the owner) ensures that you are very well looked after during your stay. The staff are great - very helpful. Avril (the maid) remembered me, even though it was 10 years since I last stayed at Golden View!

The pool and grounds are lovely and the Chinese restaurant and bar are very nice - good food and very reasonably priced drinks.

Tina (the on-island rep) is brilliant! A great help who can organise any trips/outings/car hire etc that you fancy. Having lived on the island for many years, Tina has a wonderful in-depth knowledge and can recommend things that may not be in the guide books.

So...a fantastic holiday - a beautiful condo - great location and great staff. What more could you ask for?!

P.S. Highly recommend you visit the Baku Beach Club - we spent most of our time there. Beautiful beach-side location, wonderful food and very friendly, helpful staff who can also organise watersports for you - jetskiing, boat trips, diving etc.
