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.

Lovely apartment great location

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for a month and had a great time. The apartment is lovely but needs a little updating, but overall it was a good place to stay, beds best we have ever slept on. Views fantastic from patio, bit of noise from the adjacent road but overall great place to stay. A car is necessary if you don't wish to walk uphill to the apartment . Everyone around very friendly and felt safe.

Elma and Tony very reponsive to emails,

Would definitely stay again, we loved the morning show from the monkeys and little birds who joined us for breakfast.

Lovely Appartment

  • 4 of 5

This apartment was perfectly suited to our needs. Everything we needed for out stay was in the apartment, and the twice weekly main service was very good with helpful staff.

We had some beautiful sunsets seen from our veranda.

We throughly enjoyed our stay here, but there are some minor points that may be more important to others staying here: The electricity cables alongside the garden did obstruct the view. During the day, the adjacent road the occasional larger vehicle could be quite noisy climbing the hill. Because it is west fencing, there was little sun in the garden, so not much chance of getting sunburn (but this could equally be a good point).

When we stayed here we were the only guests in the block of 4 apartments, so we had no problem parking. As it was the car hire company gave us a free upgrade to a SUV, and access to the front parking area was a little tight, and if there had been three other cars parked there, the parking would have been snug, but no worse than your adverage supermarket car park.

Will only a ceiling fan in the launge and leather seats, it could get a little sticky if sat for ant length of time.

But these are very minor points and we would be very happy to stay again. Excellent value for money.
