About Stephanie Crouchman

I have enjoyed many holidays in Barbados since purchasing the apartment, on all my visits I try to keep the apartment looking freshly painted and make sure all is up to date. It is like home from home to me people over the years have been so friendly and I have made good solid friends

Stephanie Crouchman purchased this apartment in 2002

Why Stephanie Crouchman chose Sunset Crest

This was my late husbands dream and means a great deal to me to be able to carry on the dream

What makes this apartment unique

The position is amazing you can make it so reasonable should you wish having all facility's in the apartment and supermarkets being so close.

On the other hand should you want to spoil yourselves the restaurants so close at hand with amazing views of the Caribbean ocean cannot be beat.

Great location, perfect accommodation for us!

  • 5 of 5

Great location, is the perfect place to stay to discover the island. Even if you rent a car, use the public transportation or just walk a bit, there are always great places to visit. It is close to big supermarkets, medical centers, restaurants, the swimming pool and not too far from the beach. The neighborhood is safe and quiet. You can get free wifi from the coffee shop just opposite the house.

The apartment was clean and simple, more than enough for us. It had all we needed for cooking, rest and have fun. Stephanie recommended a lot of great places to visit and to eat, thanks a lot!

About the island… we will definitely come back again! :)

Owner's Response: Thank you so much Eduard for your review, it is great for me to know you really enjoyed your stay. The location makes your stay reasonable, the restaurants and lovely local beach bars are so close, sounds as if you got around to see all the local area offers, as you say you do not need a car if you do not want too, buses are close by and is a fun experience on its own The neighborhood is friendly and I have always felt safe in the apartment, just walking in the area is fun and is near to a great supermarket and shopping mall If ever you do return I would love the opportunity to help again should you wish All good things Kind regards Stephanie

Great location, clean, very well looked after.

  • 4 of 5

Very clean and well kept single storey bungalow in condominium. Jacintha the local lady looking after the place was lovely and helpful.

The location is great close to Beach and Holetown with its shops, bars and restaurants. Apartment is very quiet but only a short walk away from the action. Barbados feels very safe to walk around in comparison to Jamaica where we were last year.

Beach House which is a members only pool area (you get a membership card as part of rental) is a great place to spend the days sunbathing. Free beds and iced water. Food & drink in next door Beach House restaurant is OK but not cheap. We recommend Zaccios which only a short walk and great for sunset drinks and eating.

Air conditioning in apartment bedroom is adequate as it takes the edge off the heat & humidity but not equivalent of what you might expect in US or Europe. Slightly frustrating to have to feed it the dollars every 2/3 hours in the night as you cannot preload it.

Loved our time.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review I am so glad you enjoyed your stay It is in a great location all your needs are so close by Zacios and Surfside offer great reasonable beach bar food. Surfside is a great place to have breakfast on the beach. The Beach House has the lovely swimming pool that looks over the ocean with a great cocktail bar Just opposite the apartment is the Italia coffee shop that has lovely coffees, further alongside the Italia coffee shop is Cafe Moya that offers ice creams and local food and reasonable snacks We now have Massys reopened very large supermarket that will have all your needs, this is alongside Limegrove a very high class shopping mall in the middle has a lovely cocktail bar a great meeting place in the evenings with a great atmosphere. It also has a cinema that you can have drinks bought to you while watching the movie. Hope you visit the Island again it is a lovely Island if ever I can help again I would love to. Kind regards Stephanie

Good location for access to facilities

  • 3 of 5

The condo was attractive, clean and comfortable and the owner could not have been more helpful. There was a weekly clean by a super lady, Jacintha. Although the small complex was not too inspiring on first impression, this condo was the best. A few disappointments were that there were no laundry facilities near by and the large shopping mall was not complete so the weekly shop became more of an excursion. Hole town's facilities including The Beach House were a 10 mins walk away. The owner gave us a membership card to use the sunbathing facilities at The Beach House beautifully situated by a sandy beach. The main coast road was round the corner from the condo, handy for buses and also handy for the best pancakes ever to be found in the coffee shop, far too tempting,

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for for choosing my apartment for your long stay in Barbados, it was great to be able to meet you both as I was on the Island for part of your stay and to take you out on a day trip, showing you the east side, plus Sugar Hill. Popping in to give you the odd lovely cooked chicken from the super market Laundry it is not a problem as Jacintha comes once a week to change the linen and clean the apartment, for longer stays she will do laundry should you require for a charge agreed for your needs, but on the hole it is very light washing as clothes dry so quickly in the heat. As I write this I am getting excited as I am back on the Island very shortly to meet up with very good friends I have made over the years, I would love to see you both again if ever you should return. kind regards Stephanie

Well appointed and very well equiped property.

  • 4 of 5

WE enjoyed our stay but it was not a good time to visit Barbados because it was so hot and humid, as it was hurricane season. As stated by other users this is a lovely little apartment but it does not have AC throughout but we found it OK with just the AC unit in the bedroom. The beach house facility is very good, a bit more information on this would have been useful. The Mayo café and coffee shop across the way are very good we had breakfast at Mayo a few times. It is a pity that they are still building the supermarket up the road when this is finished it will provide everything you need. Would recommend this apartment.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for choosing my apartment. Unfortunately on your stay the main supermarket was under rebuild. It is planned for re opening for middle of November to end of November 2017. Massy took over from Super-centre. Once it is reopened I can let guests know what is on offer there. Just a five minutes walk from that Massy supper market is a wonderful shopping centre called Lyme Grove, it has a great night life with a bar in the centre The Beach House is great it offers lovely loungers by the swimming pool that look over the ocean. There is a beautiful restaurant that looks over the ocean very romantic for that special occasion you could not beat the ambience If every I can help if you should want to revisit please do not hesitate kind regards Stephanie

Beautiful stay!

  • 3 of 5

The worst part of the 2 week stay was the prehistoric air conditioner in the bedroom, the ONLY air conditioner in the whole place that worked very poorly and you had to feed money all night long!

This apartment was within walking distance of grocery store, gift shops, coffee shop, beach, resturaunts, fruit stand, bus stops, gas station, outlet mall and a ton of other things!

It would be nice to have a washer & dryer available, we paid Jacintha to wash clothes before we left. Jacintha is a very very nice lady that keeps up the apartment.

Everyone on the island was super friendly! We had a blast here for 2 weeks!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review and glad that you had a great time on your stay as you have said all your needs are so close that makes the stay reasonable as you do not need to hire a car. We very shortly have a new Massy store opening that will also be very close and very updated The air con unit is new and up to date and serviced twice a year. I have instructions beside the unit to give tips on how to use to make economical, there are also plenty of fans in the apartment that can be used in any area required Because of the lovely weather we get in Barbados most guests including myself have very light clothing and mainly swim wear that drys within a day. I have never felt a need for a washing machine. As you found for any washing that you required Jacintha would do for you for a charge agreed by youselves. The apartment is cleaned and linen changed once a week by Jacintha. So pleased Jacintha looked after you on your stay, she is a lovely lady Thank you for looking after my home and hope you return to this beautiful sunshine destination kind regards Stephanie

cute, cozy place near beach

  • 3 of 5

This was a very clean, neat cozy one bedroom place that was in a great location. Access to the beach/pool/resturants/shops were all very close by. There needs to be either Wifi or cable TV and A/C thoroughout the place. Only the bedroom had A/C which needed coins to work. It was very very hot in the rest of the house. The TV only had one local channel...sometimes its nice to just see what is going on at home. Otherwise it was a very nice place.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time for a review as you say all the facility's are very close for the location this is a very reasonable place to stay for that great location. There is a great coffee shop that is right opposite and has the use of WiFi while enjoying a coffee and you can then get the use of WiFi on the terrace once you have used the coffee shop, perhaps you missed that useful information that is in my advert, also when at the Beach House you have full use of WiFi while basking in the sun right at the Ocean and swimming pool area. On some special nights at the Beach House they do movie evenings, and steel band evenings plus a beautiful restaurant looking over paradise. The TV is not usually used but offers local news, if it does there are DVDs that can be hired very locally. Most guests have said they just want to get away for that great escape and enjoy having evening cocktails and taking in the local food Thank you for choosing to stay at my apartment if I can help any time in the future I would love to help. Kind regards Stephanie
