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.

Christmas in Barbados

  • 5 of 5

We have always had Christmas at home and never been to Barbados before so it was a new experience all round, but we needn't have worried as absolutely everything was perfect. The apartment was clean, well-equipped and comfortable. The information provided by Jennine before the holiday was useful and accurate and both Terry and his lovely partner Rochelle provided us with great, personal service during our stay, starting with being picked up at the airport. The apartment is part of a small development set on a hill with good facilities including a club house with fabulous sweeping views down to the sea. It's a few minutes drive to Speightstown which has a good supermarket and restaurants. We felt safe and were welcomed everywhere we went. Despite being told it was high season, we often had the beautiful local beach almost to ourselves. We had the most amazing Christmas lunch at the Fish Pot which cost a fraction of what you'd pay in England for a meal of that quality on a public holiday - and without the backdrop of turquoise ocean, blue sky and lapping surf - a magical day that we'll never forget. For us this was the ideal holiday, providing the space and freedom of an apartment with hotel standard facilities and first class personal service when it suited. Would not hesitate to recommend and when we return to Barbados this is definitely where we'll be staying. Thanks again Jennine, Terry and Rochelle. The Stringer family.

A GREAT PLACE TO STAY

  • 4 of 5

The apartment lived up to it's billing. Beautiful sea views to the front & pool views to the rear. Due to the apartment's elevation there was a lovely through breeze, which at this time of year meant no aircon was necessary. The Vuemont complex boosts three pools, tennis courts, and a small gym. For extra exercise a walk around the complex first thing in the morning is recommended. There is a nearby supermarket and Speightstown, the second largest town in Barbados is about five minutes away. Holetown is about 15 minutes away. Being on the West Coast beautiful beaches are within easy reach. The apartment is well appointed for a holiday rental with local backup by Terry & Rochelle. All in all, we had an excellent month there.

Brocklestone Hill Apartment

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is very highly recommended, located overlooking three pools best position of the four lower apartments, very well equipped throughout with everything you could need for a self catering holiday, interior equipped to a very high standard, the balcony to the pool side also equipped to high standard. The apartment is well managed and very clean with all that was indicated by the owner that would be available i.e. bedding, towel etc was available. Yes the apartment is a little way from the beach so the car is a must, the local tri-mart supermarket is very well stocked with all but all what you would require to self cater. The local restaurants in Speightstown and Holetown are very good you go cheap or a little more in say The Beach and Tides in Holetown and if you are out at the south east The Crane does a very reasonable lunch. Would recommend this apartment to anyone in the future. Ray & Joan UK

Owner's Response: Hello Ray & Joan, It is music to our ears to hear that you have enjoyed every aspect of your stay in Barbados, especially at our apt! Its great to hear that everything was there for your enjoyment and it also good to know that the apt is equipped with everything you would need for your hols. It is difficult to get across to anyone reading up on the apt, just how lovely the balcony is and how beautifully positioned it is to enjoy the best of the sun throughout the whole of the day, as you know the sun can be quite intense through the afternoon, so to be able to stay outside, but sheltered from the afternoon sun is a godsend! We thank you for being such lovely guests and we thank you for such a glowing report. We do hope to see you both again and that our paths cross again sometime soon. We will pass on your words of praise to our Housekeeper and all concerned in keeping the place in such tip top condition for everyone staying there. All the best Jennine & Laurence.

Brocklestone Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay in this apartment in November. It is very well equipped and furnished and had everything we needed. It is situated in a quiet complex with well maintained gardens. The local shop and nearest town are only a short drive away. The weather was hot and sunny throughout our stay allowing us to spend plenty of time relaxing on the balcony.

There is so much to see in Barbados we enjoyed trips out every day. We particularly enjoyed the beautiful gardens including Hunte's garden and Harrisons Cave.

We ate a number of times at the friendly Fishermans Bar in Speightstown which serves good local food at a very reasonable price.

We hope to return and would not hesitate to recommend this apartment.
