The one bedroom condo was very roomy and comfortable. We kept the windows and doors open to take advantage on the constant easterlies circulating through the unit. We had everything we need to make our stay pleasant. The Wi-Fi and TV worked well once we were able to figure it all out. My wife appreciated the washer and dryer to keep us freshly clothed, especially with the temperatures hovering around 30°C. The condo has a pool which is best used in the mornings as it is in the sun. It could get cool later in the day.
The condo is in gated compound a couple of blocks from the beach. We walked everywhere. Restaurants were close by and the boardwalk on the beach was convenient access to many of them. The residents were very helpful and made suggestions on what to see and do. This supplemented the owners list before we arrived.
We only regret that we didn't rent a car for a couple of days to explore the island more thoroughly. We took a cab tour which was informative but the four hours only wet our appetite for more.
This is one of the best warm weather holidays we've taken and we will return.
Thank you Agnes for a very pleasant stay.
Love this condo so much that after my first stay in July 2015, I booked it again in December 2015. The spacious condo is in a safe, gated, quiet community and is walking distance to several nice restaurants and fast food eateries. I did not make use of the gym as the boardwalk which is perfect for jogging along the beach is just a stone's throw away. The Wi-fi, television and appliances work well and the owner was very responsive to my needs. There was no microwave upon my initial stay and I mentioned to the owner that this was a bit of an inconvenience. By the time I returned in December there was a brand new microwave waiting for me. I highly recommend this condo.
can't say enough about this rental it's great everything you need is near by
stayed feb 4 til march 3 2012 second time there it was even better than the first
thanks agnes hopefully we will be back next year

This was our first time renting a condo. It was everything that we expected. The pictures really represent what you get. The condo was roomy, clean and comfortable. The appliances and TV worked well. The air-conditionning too but we hardly used it because there was always a great breeze when openning the doors. The gated condo gives you a great sense of security. The pool was always clean and we used the gym almost every morning. After exploring a good part of the south part of Barbados we can honestly say that this condo is well situated. Just far enough off the main drag not to hear the cars and buses all the time but still about two blocks from the beach and the boardwalk. The shopping mall, two blocks over, with its numerous restaurants and a small grocery store was very much appreciated. The beach is as breath taking as the pictures show. Transportation was simple , 1 US $ per person, via local buses. We visited the beautiful beaches of Crane and Silver Sands but our favorite was Carlisle Bay, close to Bridgetown, and because there the waters were more calm and it was possible to swim out to the ship wreck and snorkel with the turtles without having to pay the $70 per person that the tours charge. We found Crane and Silver Sands isolated and the water was rough but still beautiful places to visit. The going cost for a parasol and two beach chairs is $15 for the day, $20 at Crane Beach. You can walk to Bridgetown from the condo, a 30 min walk. We had lots of trouble with our mobile cell so we suggest you get a pre-paid one once you get there. The cumputer in the business center works well but is a little slow. It is just unfortunate that the complex does not give Wifi access, since the router is already installed downstairs.One morning we even saw two monkeys in the trees next to the pool!!! Finally, the owner was very accomadating and called us to make sure the everything was fine and even gave us the tip about the turtles. All in all a great value for a an up scale condo in a well positioned area. We highly recommend it to others and will probably return next year with the kids. Thank-you Agnes!
We really enjoyed our stay at the White Sands Villa. The staff was incredibly helpful, the location was perfect and the beach was beautiful. We rented a car for a couple of days to drive around the island, but otherwise it was not necessary. I highly recommend this condo and Barbados overall if you are looking for a truly genuine experience outside of a resort.
We stayed at the Brownes Apartment for 1 month in December. The apartment was in a great location, very close to the bus service, grocery stores and the beach. Brownes is a nice quiet environment. There are wild monkeys roaming around the place, we woke up many mornings to see a family of monkeys walking on the fence.
There is a restaurant called Tapas just a couple of minutes away across the street and the food was excellent.
We took the local bus to Carlisle beach which was 6-7 minutes bus ride and swam with the turtles, we just swam out to the catamaran boats and got to see the turtles for free. A must see. We went to Bottom Bay, the views are breathtaking.
I would recommend Brownes to anyone. I had a great time in BArbados and would return.
Located in Hastings, Christ Church on the popular south coast of the island, in walking distance to all amenities and the famous Accra/Rockley beach. Steps away from the beachside boardwalk that now runs along our south coast from Accra Beach to Hastings. The Grantley Adams International airport is only 15-20 minutes by car. Brownes is a short drive/bus journey from the popular St. Lawrence Gap where some of Barbados' best entertainment, nightclubs and restaurants are based. It is also close to (about 5 minutes by car) supermarkets, banks, mini golf, 18 hole golf course (Barbados Golf Club) and Ocean Park and within reach of many other sightseeing places. For a truly Bajan experience use the local transport (called ZRs) to travel along the south coast - cost only 1.50Bds$ (approx 50p).
