Out and about in Barbados : There are so many places to visit and so much to do, and so little time but don't hurry. Although you don't need to hire a car as the public transport is so good, it is fun to hire a mini moke or jeep and find all those places yourself.
The rugged and wild East coast is not to be missed visit Bathsheba then drive down to Bottom Bay this everything you would imagine a Caribbean beach to look like. Take some food and drink with you and have a picnic. Check if there is any horse racing on at the Garrison in Bridgetown, this always guarantees a good afternoon. Polo is a great way to spend and afternoon in the Winter months and the Holders season in March every year is superb . In fact there is something different to do an see every month of the year.
A must is a Catamaran Cruise either with a group of people or book one just for you, swim with the turtles or just cruise up and down the coast.

The apartment is in a word fantastic . You have everything you need and it is very modern . The pool is the best on the island and the gardens so large. We just could not have asked for anything more. The extras came in useful ie beach mats, cool box, beach towels etc. We visited most of the restaurants but the highlight was the Holders season . Anita arranged tickets for us . It is an experience you should not miss set in the grounds of Holders House the events ere excellent and the atmosphere magical. Next stop was the Polo we had never been before and it is a great social afternoon out. Anita & Dave took us to see their new villa in Speightstown it is everything you see in the photos and more with the high ceilings and so superbly decorated and furnished. We are going to be torn where to stay on our next visit . We highly recommend this apartment and the help Anita & Dave gave us in planning a great holiday
Thanks for your comments
Property was ok.
The property was well situated, lots of older people live/own the condos - very quite (locals think its a retirement home, LOL). Pool was excellent and appreciated. Suite was recently renovated. Furniture looks nice, but not so comfortable after a full day of touring & sightseeing. Bed was weird - two twins pushed together and twin sheets on each, but a king comforter shared, haven’t run into this before. The one and only air conditioning unit is in the bedroom; which was an issue for us as it blew directly on us while sleeping (great for a cold) and doesn’t cool the rest of the suite very well. Ad stated washer/dryer, but no dryer in the suite unless you call the portable clothes rack a dryer? I specifically asked if unit had a blender & was informed there was one - but there wasn’t. There was an issue with internet access when we arrived - no internet or tv as there was a problem with something - contacted owner & she came over, basically accused us of touching the fiber optic cable or something. Anyways, cost us additional money to get out of country data so we could plan outings & get a map.
I was a bit disappointed with this VRBO - I have stayed at several and all except this one exceeded my expectations. Given the past reviews I expected more: like a full set of matching dishes & utensils, wood spoons and splatulas that were not cracked & unusable, a flat frying pan rather than the wok fry pan, bar of soap, paper towel, face cloths, more than one roll of toilet paper, salt, pepper, Kleenex, clothes dryer and blender - you know a few creature comforts that we enjoy at home. If you are looking for that, this is probably not the place for you. I don’t mind paying more for rentals, but I didn’t feel that I got my moneys worth at this one... I give this vrbo a ‘Canadian’ rating of 2 stars - not the worst but definitely not the best.
P.S. fellow travellers: when we booked this trip we thought we would rent a scooter since we are from North American and drive on the opposite side of the road; but once we experienced the roads (pot holes like you have never seen before) and taxi trip (crazy fast) we changed our minds. We used the local buses which take you everywhere on the west coast and booked tours to distilleries/plantation, Bathsheba, various gardens and Harrison caves - all of which cost us less than renting a car and saved us from worrying about driving in a foreign country with unfamiliar driving regulations.
Hello I am Sorry you felt this way The interest was not working but this was outside anyone’s scope except the provider and we had this problem resolved within the day
At no time did you tell us you had any other problems , had we known this I would have recitified any areas that were possible . We do not have a dryer though and never advertised the fact only a washer . The condos do have an area with washers and dyers . The ac is only there to chill the bedroom and the whole apartment as advertised
Barbados does have a older clientele during January and February mainly clients from Canada , this does change as we move into Easter and beyond
Arrived here for 2 weeks and was delighted to find the property was as described, nice and spacious with a good sized balcony. Very nice pool on site which gives some much needed relief from the heat of the day. Plenty of bits in property to use on beach such as beach chairs, cool box and beach mats along with a couple of snorkels. Air-con in bedroom was a godsend and we were allowed to stay until 4 pm on last day as nobody else booked in that day which was very generous. Position of apartment within Sunset Crest was very good as it took about 7 minutes and we were in the middle of Holetown.
Perfect Location For Relaxed Stay
Used Anita's appartment for my first visit to Barbados, and my wife and I couldn't have been happier.
The appartment was exactly as described, clean, comfortable and well equipped, as well as being perfectly centrally located in the long block, near the lifts and overlooking the pool. The little extra touches like beach towels and mats, cool box, face mask and flippers, lots of books and DVDs, etc, were well appreciated. Anita herself was very welcoming and helpful.
The pool and gardens are terrific, and never crowded during our stay, although it was of course the low season. The open sided Chinese restaurant on site is excellent and very reasonably priced; we had several take-aways which we ate on our balcony.
The well stocked supermarket and small shopping mall in Sunset Crest is less than ten minutes' walk, and the bus stops are outside it on the main road. As long as you don't mind walking a few hundred yards, there is absolutely no need to hire a car during your stay, everywhere is accessible by bus. All journeys of whatever length have a standard fare of B$ 1.50 (about 50p in UK money), buses are frequent, and are also great fun, particularly the private (yellow) buses which have reggae music blasting out of the speakers and also give change, which the public buses (blue) don't, so make sure you have the right money on those!
Highlights of our holiday included the five hour lunch and snorkelling cruise on the Calabaza catamaran out of Bridgetown (check them out on the internet - at 100US$ per person, a little more than most, but well worth it), our visit to historic plantation house St Nicholas Abbey in the north of the island, and the Friday night fish fry at Oistins, which was packed out and very lively.
Other good discoveries - the Fisherman's Pub on the seafront in the centre of Speightstown, very simple and basic but a great place to eat delicious Bajan food at rock bottom prices (lunchtime only). For sweet and savoury constituents of a picnic, check out the bakery 100 yds up the road from the Fisherman's pub.
Best beach: if you want to avoid the hustlers at Sandy Lane and Paynes Bay, get a Speightstown bus and go a mile north of Holetown, alighting at the Lone Star Restaurant bus stop. Cut down between the buildings and sit in the shade of the big tree directly outside the restaurant on the almost desterted beach. The sea floor is sandy and easy on the feet; Ju Ju's beach bar is one minutes walk south for a snack or sundowner cocktail.
This was our 6th visit to Barbados and to the Holetown area, but our 1st to Golden View. The accomodation was just superb: a real home from home with everything you could need and more. The apartment is beautifully furnished and maintained, and the air con was a real bonus. The description on the website is extremely accurate but you really do have to go to appreciate how good it is!
The pool, bar, restaurant and grounds are lovely and make for very lazy days. There is a very detailed guide in the apartment to help you decide what to do. The building is manned 24/7 and the whole place has a welcoming and homely feel to it.
The beach and Holetown are a short walk away and there are excellent bars and restaurants to choose from, as well as a variety of small shops, duty free and a supermarket.
Anita was so helpful throughout the whole process, from booking through to meeting us at the apartment. Customer service was faultless and beyond the call of duty. We really couldn't have been made to feel more welcome.
We would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending the property and we hope to return very soon.
Sue and Mark Dobbyn
I do not know what to add, because the other reviews said it all. This is our 1st time visiting Barbados, and everything is more than expected , especially this Apt. It is beautiful, comfortable and spotlesly clean. The pool is huge, very clean and quiet. Golden view is a short distance from beach, supermaket, restaurant. There is also an excellent chinese restaurant on site, and the price is reasonable. . The welcoming package from Anita &Dave was thoughtful and well appreciated. We'll definitely be back, just hope that we'll be able to book this apt.
Thank you for your thoughts much appreciated
Golden View Apartments are in the Sunset crest area of Hole town on the beautiful West Coast. Beach is only 5 min walk away. You will find chattel shops, supermarket, internet cafe, banks and boutiques just down the road. You are within walking distance to some of the best restaurants in Barbados.You are near to the Famous Sandy Lane hotel, in fact a walk up the road takes you through the estate and some of the most beautiful villas on the island. Walk to the famous 9 hole golf course for views of the island, flora and the famous monkeys, take a banana with you and they will feed straight from your hand. Take a walk down 1st street for Hole town nightlife, don't miss Sunday night Karaoke in the street even if you don't sing its an experience just being there. There are numerous beaches close by all as special as the next. The area is fun but relaxed, laid back and peaceful.try our cafe bar in the chattel village for great breakfast, lunch and the best coffee on the island . Ask about our tapas night with live music great fun .
