Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

A lovely place to stay in Barbados perched on the hill with views of the Caribbean in the distance. The balcony was a real favourite to be enjoyed at all times of the day from breakfast in the morning; great sofas to chill out and read during the day and a table and chairs to enjoy a meal. A great holiday with good organisation from Jennine before and during our stay.

Owner's Response: So pleased you enjoyed your stay, both of you. I think you must have mimicked my holiday, as the balcony is probably where we spend 80% of our time when we are in the apt! Having the Sun in the morning on the balcony for breakfast is the right way round, because as the balcony is shaded from the hottest time of the day, you are still able to sit out there comfortably!! Even the rain doesn't deter you from being out there!! It was our pleasure to have you to stay at the apt, you both are more than welcome to stay again whenever you are able to do the trip next!!

Family of 4 visit to Barbados ( kids aged 12 and 14)

  • 4 of 5

Wonderful spot. The apartment was clean and fully equipped. We enjoyed the space it provided particularly the two sets of french doors with walk-out to covered deck. The breeze with doors and windows open was amazing and because of this we spent 24 hours a day in the fresh air. We only had one evening that was a bit hot. We enjoyed walks around the complex at night and watching the sunset from the most west part of the property. A car is a must have and if you enjoy exploring this is great spot to do it from. I wasn't sure about being off the beach but we loved it. We took the opportunity to explore the many different highlights of the Island. The roads are not so wide and not always well marked but if you have the ability to use google maps it worked like a charm.

Groceries would highly recommend a trip to Holetown early in your vacation for groceries. They have a good selection is this sizeable supermarket. Speightown supermarket down by the ocean is also well stocked with options. We found we cooked most meals to cut down on costs. Being Canadian the USD can take a bit out of your spending. Didn't mind at all cooking in the well-quipped kitchen. We even used the coolers provided to pack a lunch several days. Lunch at the Orange Street Grocer ( Small Gourmet Deli) in Speightown's is worth a trip. Great location, a little on pricey side but a delightful treat and worth it.

The North point at Flower Pot Cave is definitely worth a visit. Snorkelling off the beach at Folkstone Marine Park just of north of Holetown is worth it. You can rent equipment there for $10. You can also spot turtles at one end of the Sandy Lane Beach. And of course a day trip to Crane Beach. It really is one of the most beautiful beaches. Make sure to go up top in the Resort for a fantastic view of the gorgeous blue water.

Thank you Jennine we really enjoyed our vacation and your spot was very comfortable.

Owner's Response: Hello James, Reading your lovely review, makes me want to go over now & do it all over again! We are so glad to hear that you had everything you needed & that the Cooler bag came in handy for you all!! I do agree with you about just being set back up on the hill away from the beach has its compensations, like the views for starters, especially come sunset & having the constant breeze up there, acts as free a/c! And good to come away from the end of a hard day on the beach or sight seeing! Would love to think you might make a return to Brocklestone Hill one day. BR Jennine

Christmas in Barbados!

  • 5 of 5

Firstly, we would like to say a big thank you to Jennine and Laurence for their time and energy in providing us with information on this wonderful island. We have been lucky to travel to many destinations around the world, and we can honestly say that Brocklestone was by far one of the cleanest, well presented, well facilitated and nicest apartments that we have stayed in.

As we have stated in the guest visitors hand book, "we would not stay anywhere else in Barbados".

Final thoughts - before you even arrive in a destination or even think of booking somewhere it all begins with the very first point of call. We must say that from the very first moment we enquired about this fabulous apartment we were able to engage and receive personable, friendly and a humble warm attitude in return. That before booking is for us of the utmost importance.

Thank you Jennine and Laurence for a lovely 17 night vacation and when we return to Barbados we will not be looking elsewhere.

P.S. Happy New Year to Jennine, Laurence and family

Peaceful, Spacious and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

"Brocklestone Hill" in Vuemont development was an excellent accommodation for the four of us. A car is a must, but we had planned on renting one anyway. The location was splendid as we were no more than about 30 minutes from anywhere we wanted to go and much closer to many including excellent beaches. The all inclusive Almond Beach resort only about ten minutes away was our preferred "day at the beach" destination. Also we did not have to fight traffic every time we wanted to go anywhere which would not have been the case in many other parts of the island. The grocery store at the end of the street made it easy to pick up any daily necessities when we returned at the end of the evening. The apartment was very roomy, clean well maintained and extremely well laid out to allow the lovely and fairly constant breeze to flow through the apartment. It had all the amenities we needed and the staff of the complex were very helpful and extremely friendly and welcoming. The elevator was very welcome for luggage and big grocery days, but walking up the stairs was good exercise the rest of the time. Walking in the country is extremely difficult as there is very little if any shoulder and fewer sidewalks with lots of blind hills and corners. Walking within the complex, however was safe and secure and provided a good workout each morning. We had the four pools pretty much to ourselves the whole two weeks. Barbados is not a low budget vacation destination and the reasonable cost of the apartment split between the two couples made it possible for us to enjoy all the attractions we wanted to without worrying about the expense. All of us agreed we would recommend it to any of our friends who may travel to Barbados in the future and to stay again ourselves if we come back.

Huge balcony to relax on

  • 5 of 5

Ideally located away from the main tourist areas for exploring the whole island by car.

A very peaceful complex with well tended gardens. You may be lucky enough to see monkeys or humming birds from the balcony.

It gets the early morning sun before it gets too intense. After which it is in the welcome shade and catches the cooling easterly breeze. There are 2 sofas so it is like being in an outdoor lounge. Very comfortable.

There is also a good sized dining table and chairs to eat al fresco in the cooling breeze.

There are also sun loungers and drying facilities.

Outside the front door gets the evening sun.

The whole apartment is very homely with lots of equipment to be completely self catering.

Jennine gave us useful information about where to eat and places to go.

A good map and guide book and the island is yours to explore.

Brocklestone Hill Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Our 1st holiday in the Caribbean and it turned out a 5 star adventure. The apartment couldn’t have been better, providing everything required including extra detail like wi-fi internet, travel plugs in most sockets, lots of beach towels. It is presented to an exceptional standard by local a helpful and attentive team. The apartment complex Vuemont is inland and in a quiet location so a car is essential. But Speightstown is only a few minutes away and has most things required for self-catering and some excellent places to eat, similarly only few minutes away are the fabulous west coast beaches. Many thanks Jennine, and look forward to returning sometime soon.
