About Spencer Smith

I 'd been going on holiday to Barbados since 1995 and loved it so much that I bought an apartment there. For the past 10 years I have been renting it out when I am not there myself.

I love the island and the people. I have been to many other places around the world but nowhere matches Barbados.

Spencer Smith purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Spencer Smith chose Sunset Crest

Walking distance (2 mins) to the beach, free membership to The Beach House with use of their pool by the sea, walking distance to the restaurants, shops an bars of Holetown.

Excellent self-catering place in Holetown

  • 4 of 5

This is one of a number of bungalows about five minutes walk from the beach, main supermarket, bus stops and some bars in Holetown. It has one bedroom, a living room, kitchen, bathroom and a large porch set up as a dining area. There are pleasant gardens front and back shared with three similar bungalows. You also get membership of the nearby Beach Club, which has a pool and waterfront bar. The bungalow is comfortable, clean and well equipped and would suit a couple. There is no wifi (though Beach Club has it) and no television, which didn't worry us though might miss it. Its easy to travel by bus along the west coast to Bridgetown or Speightstown and to make connections elsewhere at either of those places. The owner providers very helpful and detailed instructions to the bungalow and local amenities.

Great base to explore Barbados

  • 5 of 5

To celebrate our twentieth anniversary, we decided to make a dream come true and visit the Caribbean. Although we arrived at the end of the holiday season, we weren't disappointed and the apartment and island lived up to our expectations. Practically deserted paradise beaches were just a stone's throw away, and the weather was gorgeous. In our eight days there, there were a handful of brief showers, however these were welcome coolers, rather than anything that would keep you confined indoors.

One thing we weren't prepared for though was the expense of most commodities, with the notable exception of rum. $20 water melon anyone? It was tasty though, and lasted a week!

Would definitely recommend a boat ride where you can snorkel and swim with sea turtles and tropical fish, although if you're a confident swimmer there's a 1976 shipwreck, home to tropical fish, just 100m from aforementioned paradise beach, just five minutes walk from apartment.

Local restaurants are excellent, albeit some are slightly pricey, and we had access to a local pool and bar, courtesy of the owner.

We reacted to the mosquitoes more so than on European trips, so repellent is advisable, and the tree frogs sounded like car alarms on the first night and we wondered if we'd ever sleep, however we didn't notice them subsequently, although this may be related to our discovery of the local rum!

Both the owner and local contact couldn't have been more helpful, whilst also respecting one's privacy.

If you're seeking a comfortable base to explore Barbados, look no further.

Perfect place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a month staying in this apartment. It was exactly as described, very comfortable, nicely furnished, clean, and central. It was easy to contact the person who manages it out there, and the location was perfect. Lovely lush green outlook, and it's quiet yet walk a100yds and you're in the centre of Holetown. The supermarket is less that 10 minutes walk away, the beach only a 5 minute walk. Lots of lovely restaurants. Everything Holetown has to offer is on your doorstep. We'd go back tomorrow if we could, and for 2 months next time. We liked Chris's Bar and Variety store. It's a chattel house at Rock Dondo, can't describe it, but it's a bar/restaurant/shop, excellent food, and soooooo friendly. The whole island is a friendly place with contented people, makes for a real holiday. Try it.

Perfect base for a fabulous holiday!

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous holiday apartment in the heart of Holetown! It is perfectly placed - only 5 mins walk to the beach or the private seafront pool at the Beach House restaurant. It is also very near to the supermarket and shops and a variety of lovely bars and restaurants.

The apartment is well equipped with everything you need to enjoy your stay. It is set off the main road by a couple of streets so is really quiet offering a great balance of proximity to the nightlife and the ability to lie in to get over one too many rum punches :o) The only thing which might take a bit of getting used to is the tiny tree frogs which are surprisingly noisy in the evenings!

The owner gave us an information pack which recommended some great restaurants and local bars, but also the names of a really reasonable and reliable car hire firm and a fabulous catarmaran cruise company who offer small cats meaning you get to enjoy an authentic cruise, rather than one of the larger party cruises where you fight for space.

We'd definitely recommend the apartment to anyone and will definitely be back!!!
