Impressively luxurious immaculate apartment

  • 5 of 5

Was impressed from beginning to end. On arrival the extremely well maintained and furnished apartment was spotless and faultless. It was a real home from home experience with brilliant facilities. All bedrooms and bathrooms were very spacious and the accommodation is large enough to accommodate 6 people very comfortably including alfresco dining! Owners made us feel very welcome on arrival and gave us guidance on where to visit, eat and relax. They were truly helpful and eager to assist us with making our holiday an enjoyable and fulfilling one. Which it was. We will be returning and staying here again and have recommended it highly to our friends. Barbados is a beautiful island and we are pleased that we can visit again in the knowledge that Aurora Tropical apartment meets our family's needs superbly. I cannot emphasise enough a real home from home experience (dare I say even better!). Thank you Marcia and David.

A true holiday

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time in Barbados, a family of 5 with young children, and we were looking to return to the same part of the island given our first wonderful experience. This stay was even better, something we didn't was possible. First of all Marcia made sure we were taken care of from the first contact by email and by phone, with instructions and advice for all needs prior o our arrival.

She met us at the apartment, made sure all was well and was always available (even a local cell phone is provided to reach her and for ease of use in Barbados). The first thing to say about the rental is the terasse and the wonderful views of the ocean. The apartment is spacious, clean and breezy. Door stoppers are needed to prevent doors from slamming! This is such a welcome relief given the hot temperatures. We never turned on the AC which is available in every room, only the fan.

Each room is big and fully serviced. The kitchen is convenient and part of the family space. The finishing is all new, clean and charming. One senses how much attention Marcia has put into hosting. The pool is a welcome option when one wants to cool off or just doesn't feel the desire to return to the beech. There is a BBQ there which we used daily to prepare the fresh fish. There is even a convenient foot rinse tap and a shower by the pool for the return from the beach.

The place is secure. The staff very friendly. The decor is elegant and intentional and the walk to the beach (only 7 minutes to Gibbs Beach) is a welcome opportunity to fully dry before returning home. Gibbs is one of our preferred beaches as the fish are only a few feet from the shore and trees are available for those looking for shades through the hotter part of the day.

Needless to say, we shall return. Thank you Marcia.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind comments, it was also a pleasure to accommodate your beautiful family. I hope you will stay with us again in the future to once again enjoy all the luxury that this beautiful and well located apartment has to offer. The sea views are absolutely amazing and it does help that the apartment is close to the Beach. Thank you again for staying at Aurora Tropical; I look forward to your return to Barbados and staying again.

Wonderful Views

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was immaculately clean on arrival. Jeannie the property manager was extremely helpful (arranging cheapest airport transfers etc)There are three large bedrooms with massive showers. The outside space was wonderful with spectacular sea views and sunsets, so unusual in an apartment!!!!

We hired a car for one of our three week stay, but with a 7 min stroll to the coast road giving easy access to buses and the wonderful Gibbs beach, we found it unnecessary for the whole time.

Our son described it as Lush!!!! What more can I say
