About Elma Cole

Mr & Mrs Cole. - professional couple living in Surrey UK and now retired.

Elma Cole purchased this apartment in 2009

Why Elma Cole chose Barbados

We love the warmth and friendliness of Barbados and were regular visitors to the Island for some 20 years before deciding to buy a property of our own.

What makes this apartment unique

Peaceful and comfortable relaxing on the sun loungers overlooking the sea or watching the humming birds in the garden or watching the antics of green monkeys in the nearby forested land.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have just returned from our brilliant holiday at El Vista and we would like to say how perfect everything was. My wife really enjoyed the visit from the monkeys on 2 occasions. El Vista was the best Apartment we have stayed in on all our foreign holidays and really hope we can stay again in the future. Many thanks once again.

A Great Place

  • 5 of 5

lEl Vista was everything it said it was and more, from being picked up from the airport by Lloyd and greeted by Rachel at the apartment even though it was late evening. The local beach is just a 10 min. walk is clean and unspoilt. The apartment has everything that you need for a enjoyable stay on this beautiful island. we will certainly be booking again in the future. You need a car to get about and Lloyd can arrange this for you at a reasonable price. I would urge anybody looking for apartment in Barbados look no further just book you will not be disappointed.

Great Value.

  • 5 of 5

Everything was exactly as described, the property was immaculate and a small problem with a leaky cistern was quickly rectified.

Location is just a short drive up the hill from the beach road, more or less between Holetown and Speightstown, so car hire is recommended which will also give you the opportunity of driving round this delightful Island and finding some beautiful places you wouldn't normally see staying on one of the resorts.

I have no hesitation in recommending this property and I will be renting it again on my next visit to Barbados.

El Vista

  • 4 of 5

What can I say me and my husband have just returned from a 10 night stay.

Elma and Tony gave a lot of information on places to visit and eat.

El Vista clean tidy full of everything you would need or want. Outside plunge pool and dining area is where we spend all of our time while at the apartment! Very quite and relaxing. This is where you can watch the monkeys having their breakfast. The locals are so friendly and helpful. Used the reggy buses to get around. Beach beautiful and idilic. No one on them.

We will be telling people this holiday is not for them to keep this wonderful place a hidden gem, as it's unspoilt! We will be returning again. So that says it all! Fantastic

Fab apartment

  • 5 of 5

I was in the apartment with my son and his girlfriend. The two bedrooms are more than ample, bathroom lovely and clean and there was always hot water to hand. All of the equipment was there including beach towels, bathroom towels, hair dryer and even hair straighteners! We cooked most nights from the fresh fish market at the bottom of the hill. This is a most comfortable apartment with lovely views and the plunge pool just makes it. Had a fantastic time and I've been going for 15 years to Barbados!!! Would stay again definitely.

Brilliant

  • 5 of 5

The villa was fab, worked so well for us. It's central location was great, walking distance to the fabulous Mullins bay, bus stop at the end of the road to go anywhere on the island. We HAD the BEST time and would without any hesitation return (and we never go back to the same place twice)...in fact we didn't want to come home!!!! Tony and Elma made be whole booking so easy and the lovely Lloyd, recommended by them was there at the airport to collect us on arrival, was just an absolute delight, available at the drop of a hat to take us or collect us from wherever we were, Rachel was there to meet us and show us round when we arrived. Book today!!
