About Janina Galler

I am a physician-scientist and have been conducting research studies in Barbados for many years. We live in Boston and also spend long periods of time in Barbados.

Janina Galler purchased this condo in 1985

Why Janina Galler chose St. James

We watched this property being built and were among its earliest owners. The beautiful location and sea views, the expansive landscaped grounds (where our daughters chased pigeons) , the friendly staff and proximity to Bridgetown made this an ideal property for us. Our daughters named the apartment 'Golden Sunsets' because of the breathtaking golden, red and lilac sunsets that we celebrate daily during our visits to the island. We consider 'Golden Sunsets' our home and hope you will enjoy the premises as much as we do!

What makes this condo unique

Our apartment is very spacious and one of the largest units at Glitter Bay. The apartment is a Penthouse and has expansive ocean views from all balconies. Our views are among the best at Glitter Bay, because of the property location near the sea. Because the apartment layout, all three bedroom patios face the sea and have unencumbered views of the water, which is unusual. Most important, 'Golden Sunsets' is our home and provides the comforts of living in a modern home with all of the amenities of a special resort environment offered by The Glitter Bay Estate.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We just thought we would drop you a note to say we have had a wonderful holiday at Glitter Bay. Your condo is modern & fresh and furnished to a high standard. The terraces off each room offer amazing views and very much bigger than we expected.



We were welcomed by all the staff, Duncan, Rocky on the beach along with Allan & Tyrell & Scully behind the bar. Dave the driver was great and always available when we needed a ride.



We have arrived home relaxed and refreshed - our girls were upset to leave and so always a sign of an amazing holiday, we all hope to return next year.



Thank you for letting us rent your holiday home & we don’t mind saying we are jealous that you have such a beautiful second home!

Best Vacation Ever

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 spent spent 2 weeks at Golden Sunsets, and we are already looking forward to our return visit. My kids loved the beach right at your doorsetp, the large double pool (with a separate pool for the little ones) and the new huge tv/dvd. My husband and I enjoyed the beautiful setting, the spacious and tastefully appointed apartment, the quiet dinners on our balcony at sunset, and the great staff. This was a magical vacation

Gorgeous, elegant beach home!

  • 5 of 5

Glitter Bay is one of the best spots on the island. All the benefits of having your own apartment, plus all the benefits of being in a hotel. Unit 304 is elegantly decorated and beautiful inside, with gorgeous balconies in every room and luxury amenities. Great for families or for romantic getaways. And the beach is one of the most beautiful on the island. We'll be back!

Apt. 304 is sensational

  • 5 of 5

Four of us shared this wonderful apartment, beautifully furnished with both sea and pool views. Conveniently located, for a wide choice of restaurants and shopping. Dave picking us up at the airport meant we had the best start to our holiday. We were greeted on arrival by Shenay who gave us an excellent introduction to our holiday home for the next 3 weeks. Even the fridge was stocked with essentials. For the whole holiday we didn't have to lift a finger, as the lovely Samantha cleaned, washed and ironed for us. She was also happy to cook local caribbean meals when required and everthing with a big smile!

Shequila, our concierge, did a great job booking restaurants etc. plus printing out our boarding passes for return flight to London. Alan, Wanda and Francia provided amazing and friendly service at the beach bar. Their rum punches and light lunches were sensational. We were all very sorry to leave Glitter Bay and are already planning our return in 2016.

WHO COULD ASK FOR MORE

WHO COULD ASK FOR MORE

I have just returned from a wonderful two weeks stay in apartment 304 at Glitter Bay. It is a beautiful apartment, tastefully furnished to an excellent standard. The views are superb. It is very light, airy and comfortable.

When I arrived Nuru (the Apartment Manager) was there to greet me. She was so helpful, efficient and charming and made me feel very welcome. Nothing was too much trouble for her and, as I was on my own, this was very re-assuring – I knew that if I required anything whatsoever, she would be on hand.

I have stayed in Barbados for over 10 years and have stayed at various locations at St James but Glitter Bay has the WOW factor.

The combination of Nuru and Apartment 304 is an irresistible reason why I want to book again for the same time next year. I will be counting the days!!!
