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.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much Adam, so pleased you had a great stay, hope on your next visit you can have a longer stay, there is always so much to come back to. Hunts gardens is a lovely place to visit, it is magical with classical music playing as you move around the tropical gardens, with a pit stop for rum. First and second street is very close by with plenty of restaurants to try, just opposite Lime Grove. The supermarket close by Massy has all your needs should you want to cook for yourselves, but you cannot beat breakfast on the beach at Surf Side. I am very lucky to have such a lovely house keeper Jacintha, she is always so helpful. If Jacintha and myself can help again I would love to should you return kind regards Stephanie

Compact and comfortable apartment near to shops, beach and buses

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was well equipped and clean. We had use of a nearby pool at the Beach House. The nearby beaches are scenic and provide excellent snorkelling, particularly the Folkestone Marine Reserve A large supermarket provides a full range of provisions. The weather was a great antidote to the British winter!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much Helen for your review it always so good to hear you had a wonderful stay in sunny Barbados There are always plenty of water sports very close by. Tennis is something else close by, plus if you love golf there is the famous Sandy Lane. Bridgetown is just a bus ride away. Bus stop is very close by and very very good value and is an experience in its self The lovely Lime grove shopping mall is beautiful and a good meeting place and has a lovely cocktail bar in the centre. It also has a good cinema If you just want to relax of coarse there is the Beach House looking over the ocean If ever you should want to return, do not hesitate to contact me kind regards Stephanie

Brilliant location & Beautiful Apartment

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at golden dreams from 28th December to 11th January 2018. The apartment had everything we needed for a relaxing comfortable stay. Amazing location, just a five minute walk from the beach, beach club, (pool available to us as members as we were staying on sunset crest). Restaurants and shops are a five minute walk, holetown is a beautiful place with amazing beaches. I wouldn't hesitate in booking the apartment again as we do stay in holetown every year. To sum thing up, it was just perfect.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much Karen for your review. I am so pleased you had a great stay The location is so good, and the area just improves, we have a lovely new supermarket that has all your needs and close by the lovely Lime Grove a high class shopping mall that has a lovely cocktail bar in the centre, this has a special atmosphere in the evenings and a good meeting place. There is an antique shop close to the bar that now offers special dinning and a small court yard away from it all to have a martini cocktail, a hidden gem. On every visit there is always something to smile about, a very special destination If ever you return I would love to help 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
