About Jackie and John

We live in a small village in Wiltshire, England and we love Barbados! There is so much to see and do on this lovely island. Our apartment is just the prefect place to relax and spend quality time with family and friends. Our family are very much looking forward to our future guests enjoying this special place as much as we do. Happy holidays...….Jackie & John

Jackie and John purchased this apartment in 2009

Why Jackie and John chose St. Peter

Hello from Vuemont, Mount Brevitor! We loved this particular location as it offered that 'away from it all' feel in peaceful surroundings with wonderful ocean views and a cooling breeze. The swimming pools, jacuzzi, pool house, tennis courts and fitness room as well as easy access to local beaches make it ideal. Also, a very convenient supermarket is only 2 minutes away. We were impressed by nearby Speightstown which remains an authentically Bajan, unspoilt beach-side town and a great place to dine or sit and watch the sun go down sipping a glass of local rum punch! Speightstown has two beaches a good selection of shops, bars, restaurants, deli, bakery, art galleries and a museum. A little further along the coast road is Heywoods Beach. Mullins beach and lively Holetown are also a short drive away.

What makes this apartment unique

Green monkeys and humming birds visit the lush gulleys and gardens surrounding this small resort. The apartment is situated in a prime location on the highest point of the ridge with wonderful unrestricted views of the Caribbean Sea. We had lots of fun putting the finishing touches to our vacation property turning it into a comfortable, welcoming home from home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

" Early Summer in Barbados" We were very impressed with the apartment, the tasteful decorations and designer decor in all the rooms. All fittings and fixtures were beautifully maintained and in prime condition. The whole complex is tastefully landscaped, aesthetically pleasing and spacious. Ideal as a base for a relaxing holiday. The location was good with easy access for touring all parts of the Island.



During the first week we had the complex virtually to ourselves, with a few more residents visiting during the second week. However the club house facility (jacuzzi & pool) was at our exclusive use !



The complimentary, fast, Fibre Optic Broadband / Wi-Fi were a boon to maintain communications with the rest of the world!



This was a fantastic holiday and the apartment was a real home from home. Thank you for letting us use it.



Thanks for staying with us Mike & Christine!

An Elegant "Home from Home"

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived in this delightful apartment, we felt immediately at home. Noriette, the owner's maid, greeted us with a wonderful welcome gift and explained everything about the apartment, returning twice during our stay to clean as part of the "package". The accommodation is very tastefully furnished with everything we needed. Jackie, the owner, has been so thoughtful and generous, especially in thinking of the little things that can make such a difference. There is an ample supply of crockery, cutlery and kitchen utensils and there were even some culinary supplies to aid the self catering! A phone (for local calls) and safe deposit box were also very useful and re-assuring, although the complex has a 24 hour security presence. The views from the spacious balcony look down across countryside to the sea, so no time needs to be spent indoors! All in all, this was a superb apartment in a splendid location and we are very grateful to Jackie and Noriette for all they did to ensure that these guests had such an enjoyable holiday.

Two relaxing weeks

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at this apartment with my husband and son in July-August this year and had a fantastic two weeks. The apartment was clean and well-decorated, and we wanted for nothing whilst staying there. We made good use of the provided beach mats on our many visits to the beautiful and almost deserted Heywoods Beach where we spent lots of hours swimming and snorkelling. We enjoyed the location of the apartment as we felt Speightstown allowed us to experience more of the authentic Barbados than we would have had if staying on the south coast. The complex itself was quiet and well-maintained with three lovely pools (which we always had to ourselves), and we particularly loved the green monkeys who regularly came onto the site to raid the mango trees! The owner was wonderfully helpful from start to finish and was very accommodating when our return flight home was delayed for fourteen hours. A gem of a place.

Apartment on a quiet, delightful development

  • 4 of 5

The details quoted in the listing were accurate, the pictures of the apartment in some ways do not do it justice. The same is very true of the Vuemont development which is a haven of peace and quite. The development is very well maintained by friendly gardeners, the pool man was a particular character.The apartment is one of the highest points in Vuemont and so has far reaching views to the Caribbean. There is a good range of kitchen equipment, certainly more than adequate for a holiday stay. If I have a criticism it was regarding the TV, a modest 28" and it would have been nice to have at least a clock radio in one of the bedrooms.

The property was very clean and clearly the subject of regular maintenance.

The contact with Jackie and John prior to the visit was always replied to very promptly. The guidance notes on the apartment that we received before we left home were most comprehensive.

The check in arrangement, being met at the apartment, was in part - great but in another way a pain. Due to the vagaries of the airport timing (in our case 2.5 hours to even get to immigration!) you need to call the housekeeper to arrange for her to meet you. Good to have the meet and greet but undue pressure after a long flight to arrive at the agreed time - a key safe would resolve this.

We did experience a number of issues with the apartment during our stay, none of these were really within the owners control, on each occasion we emailed Jackie and John we received very prompt replies. Appropriate action was taken as soon as was practicable. Jackie & John proactively offered a "thank you" payment to acknowledge the issues and our limited help in resolving them.

We visited numerous beaches on the island most of which are very small, some of which offered sun beds for hire, refreshments etc. at the other end of the spectrum some are completely un-spoilt such as Heywood's Beach. On balance Heywood's was our favourite not least as there are very few rocks in the water which is an issue in some other places. It is also the nearest to the apartment and there is ample free parking just yards from the sand.

Most people have heard of the Oistins fish fry, suggest that you should try the one at Half Moon Fort; much closer and less in your face with food cooked to order.

Aspects of the trip that were less than ideal include the state of the roads and road markings - very poor. If you expect road signs on anything other than the highways you will be disappointed.

Owner's Response: Thank you Robert for awarding us four stars despite the couple of maintenance glitches you experienced during your stay. We are pleased that you appreciated our quick response. It is good to hear that you enjoyed your stay and that our apartment and resort exceeded all your expectations. We have taken on board your suggestion to add a clock radio to one of the bedrooms. With regard to apartment meet and greet, we do factor in possible delays to arrival times by providing guests with our Guest Manager’s local cell number to allow for flexibility.

Home from Home in the sun

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful, spacious 2 bedroomed apartment which was well furnished and equipped. It is close to Speightstown with all amenities and a lovely beach (free sunbeds and umbrella at Jumo's restaurant if you buy a drink or meal there - good food), A good base to tour the island. We particularly enjoyed eating all our meals on the large balcony.

We can't wait to go back!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Vuemont Apartments from November 25 to December 9th. This was our first experience using VRBO and Jackie has set the bar VERY high! From our very first inquiry right through to our departure Jackie was delightful to deal with offering us helpful advise and tips.

We arrived in the late afternoon of November 25th and the property manager, Noriette, greeted us at the apartment to give us keys and show us everything we needed to know about the apartment. There was also a beautiful welcome basket waiting for us! Jackie asked us to provide a grocery list in advance, and Noriette did our initial shopping for us. I highly encourage you to take Jackie up on this service, especially if you are arriving later in the day, since it is a bit of a walk to the nearest supermarket and there are no restaurants in close proximity (walking distance) - we were starving by the time we got to the apartment so it was great to have a few essentials available until we could get to the supermarket the next morning once our rental car was delivered.

The apartment was very clean, well appointed and beautifully decorated. It definitely felt like a home away from home! We spent many hours relaxing on the veranda enjoying our view of the Caribbean. We did a lot of our own cooking and even had friends over one night. Absolutely everything we needed was there! We experienced a bit of a "freak" storm one day and we had a water outage. I emailed Jackie to see if this was a regular occurrence and she replied very quickly. No worries though, the water was back on within a few hours and there were no other "glitches" the entire time we were there.

The property itself is fantastic! There is a 3-tiered pool as well as a deeper lap pool. They were perfect for days of floating when we didn't venture out exploring or head to the beach. They were clean and well maintained. The fitness center is also well appointed and clean. If you want a really GREAT workout, try walking up and down the hill two or three times!!

Noriette came in to clean once per week. She is a terrific lady with a sunshine personality! You will love her!

Mount Brevitor is a little out of way in a very quite location. We were not bothered by high volumes of traffic and people as we suspect would have been the case if we'd stayed in the hotel zones. We rented a car for the entire time and we loved exploring the island. We can't wait to go back!!

Very comfortable and well appointed appartment

  • 5 of 5

We have no hesitation recommending this appartment which is spotless and furnished with style. It is located in a secure development with adjacent parking and a lift if required.

The kitchen had all the utensils which you might need, a large fridge freezer with ice maker and dishwasher.

The large balcony, where we spent much of our time, has 2 sunbeds, 2 comfortable chairs and a large dining table.

The nearby poolhouse provides access to the infinity pool, approx 15m long and deep enough to swim, showers and toilets.

It is a peaceful location, convenient to explore the north of the island and places like St Nicholas Abbey and the stunning Huntes Gardens, but bustling Speightstown and several beaches are only 10 - 15 mins away.

We have visited Barbados many times although this was our first time staying in an appartment. We will happily include Vuemont in our options for future visits.
