About Ellie Buckingham

Hi My favourite place to be is Barbados but returning to London is always fun. I also have an apartment in Cagnes in the south of France.

Ellie Buckingham purchased this bungalow in 2008

Why Ellie Buckingham chose St. James

I bought the property because it was the nearest property to the pool and the Beach and Zaccios the beach restaurant that I could find!

What makes this bungalow unique

One of the best things for me about the bungalow is that is on the flat and a pleasant walk to the Supermarket


Excellent! 4.5/5 -

Greatl 1 bed appt in beautiful part of Barbados

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this lovely 1 bed appartment. It has a full kitchen and everything you need for your stay. All details in the ad were correct. Was very close (2-5 mins walk just over the road) to several nice beaches, and the use of the beach house was a big bonus with pool and loungers next to the sea and beach. Restaurants in Hole Town were very close by (nearest 3 mins walk, furthest 10 mins walk). Very helpful owner who answered all of our questions. Would love to return again!

Okay Value for the Money

  • 3 of 5

The property looks nice and is acceptable for the price; we did have an issue with the toilet leaking water and contacted the owner who was very nice. The person caring for the house was sweet as well, but we couldn't get in touch with her before we left and never got the $50 we gave her as a deposit for the club card back. Holetown seems like a great part of town to stay in, but not much to do outside of tourist season.

Owner's Response: Dear A I am sorry that you are upset as you feel you have lost your 50 BDS for the club card, this is approx 16.00 pounds which I can sent you via PayPal if you let me have your email address. Sophia had a small accident on her way to you and got there after you left she felt terrible that she did not get to say goodbye and sends you her apologies. To the best of my knowledge I have the only one bed property in SC with two shower rooms and as the leak was in the guest shower room I was hoping you wouldn't mind too much sharing the main shower room toilet for the last couple of days while Sophia organised a plumber. When visiting out of season I must suggest to guests to try the buses if they want to visit more of the island as the fare is only 1 US dollar about 66 pence. You emailed me to say you were having a lovely time so I do hope that you will one day return to Barbados and the wonderful people

A comfortable property in an excellent location.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was just as attractive as the description and photographs suggested. It was beautifully clean, thanks to nice Sophia, and it was very prettily furnished. The location was extremely convenient and so close to the beach and the beach club (membership included in the rental). We didn't hire a car but the buses were brilliant and there was a taxi rank nearby. Although we ate out for most meals, except breakfast, we appreciated the excellent kitchen, which really provided everything that an enthusiastic cook could need. The other huge advantage of Ellie's apartment was the fact that it had two really nice modern shower rooms. Perfect for post-beach showers. Ellie was a very thoughtful owner and made lots of good recommendations for bars, beaches and restaurants. It was a perfect introduction to Barbados and the apartment really provided everything that we had hoped for. I hope that we'll be back.

A wonderfully located bijou property

  • 5 of 5

This property couldn't be more central to the restaurants, beaches, shops and bars of Holetown. It offers all that is needed for a Caribbean holiday. To top it off residents have access to the Beach House pool - which is located on the beach! It was clean and offered full facilities. A favourite spot to watch the sun set would be Zaccios with friendly staff and a good cocktail. It also sits close to the main coast road which gives the advantage of being able to use local transport to travel about. I could definitely recommend this property for a holiday.

Fantastic Property

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time in Barbados and we had a fantastic holiday. The apartment itself is in excellent condition and is also very well equipped. As the property details suggest the apartment is in an excellent location being a few minutes walk to the pool (which we had to ourselves most days), the shops, the beach and a range of restaurants and bars. The area was also extemely safe and we felt very comfortable walking around the area at all times of day and night.

Mike, who picked us up from the airport, was very helpful both in terms of showing us round the apartment and in helping us to get our bearings in and around Holetown. He also introduced us to a number of the regulars at Zaccios which made for a very enjoyable break.

Without a doubt I would recommend the accommodation.

Lovely house in great location

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here for over two weeks. It is a spacious 1 bedroom house located very close to the beach and to a large swimming pool. The latter is often nice and quiet and is part of a restaurant/ bar complex, overlooks the beach and it's free for people living in Sunset Crest where the house is. Perfect!

There are about 30 or so restaurants and bars close by and it's easy to get a bus to Bridgetown or other parts of the West Coast.

The house has excellent facilities and I enjoyed my stay there very much indeed. The front patio is especiially pleasant of an evening. A property to be highly recommended in my view. I cannot find fault with this property or it's location in any way at all.
