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 sur mer in the south of France.

Ellie Buckingham purchased this bungalow in 2008

Why Ellie Buckingham chose Sunset Crest

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 so ideal for all ages. Also two shower rooms both with toilets, the dinning terrace which is open on one side so fresh and breezy on the hotter days, lovely long lawn at the front and a pleasant walk to the Supermarket pats the Chattel houses selling their lovely goods

Such a lovely holiday!

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I stayed in st James Barbados for 12days In Ellie's apartment and we had a great experience overall, description of St James and the surrounding area's was exactly what was described and very easy to get to places via bus or taxi. There are also a couple of shops and restaurants within walking distance from apartment which is very handy and of course the long stretch of beaches that you can't miss. We visited Oistins on Friday night which is a must! great food and lively music going on all night. The staff in bars and restaurants were all very helpful and kind, Our favourite restaurant was Zaccios which we ended up eating there three times during our stay as we loved it that much, very good size portions and amazing cocktails that can't be missed and the sun set is gorgeous.

Would highly recommended and we will be back!

Great location, comfortable stay

  • 4 of 5

We had a great 9 day stay in Sunset Crest. The unit was roomy and lovely with a very spacious kitchen and sitting area. It's also in a great location, close to bus routes, groceries and most importantly, the beach. We spent a lot of time at Surfside Bar, especially once we discovered happy hour. :)

The property was clean, and the linens provided were great, but we could have used fresh towels and sheets partway through, definitely after the one week mark. I suspect most guest are here for a week or less.

I would happily return to this property and would recommend it to others. :)

Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a fabulous week in Barbados!! We arrived at Ellie's apartment & met Jacintha as agreed. The apartment was just as the pictures shown and better, the two bathrooms were very handy. Just a short walk from the apartment and we were either at the pool or the most beautiful white sand beach. Surrounded by good bars & restaurants, anything else was a mere $2 bus ride away we couldn't have wished for a better location.

Ellie answered all my questions via email within a day, and felt very rat ease and well informed.

While away my partner proposed on the beach and hopefully we will be returning in the not too distant future with even more memories to make!

Thank you Ellie.

Value for money self-catering property very close to the beach and pool

  • 3 of 5

Ellie's property is good value for money for two people who wish to self-cater. The kitchen is well equipped with a large fridge/freezer, oven, microwave, toaster and a two ring hotplate, with plenty of crockery, glasses, cutlery and pots and pans. There is a 3-pin extension & socket in the kitchen which takes British plugs which is a bonus (although I don't know what the voltage would be, but I am sure Ellie would be able to let you know).

There is a nice patio area with table and 4 chairs and one comfy chair where you can watch the world (including the occasional monkey & humming bird) go by while you are reading a book and sipping on a rum and Coke. Although we didn't hire a car, there is plenty of parking to the front of the property.

There are two shower rooms each with a basin and loo, and there was plenty of hot water.

The bedroom is air conditioned which is very welcome, the beds are comfy enough and there is a safe and plenty of drawers and a small wardrobe.

The property is situated very close to the pool and beach, takes about two to three minutes stroll to get to either, so easy to pop back 'home' for lunch or a coffee.

The pool area is lovely and we had no problems getting sunbeds, and the pool house have a never ending supply of iced drinking water which was very welcome. You can wander out from here onto the beach or use the boardwalk to get to the bars along the beach front.

Ellie was contactable via email while we were there and the wifi was excellent - both at the property and the pool.

We were there for ten nights and the housekeeper came halfway through to clean and change the linen, as well as an emergency clean towards the end of the holiday when the whole island suffered from a day of tropical rain and flooded - this was quite an experience as we were on a tour of the island by taxi that day which actually felt more like a boat trip!

There is a supermarket very close by for daily essentials, but be prepared to pay a lot more for food than we do in the UK.

There are bus stops very close by.

The security deposit was returned to us within a couple of weeks of returning home, and the $50 deposit required on arrival for the pool access card was returned by the Housekeeper on our day of departure.
