About Charlotte Ambrose

The property belongs to my father who is an Independent Financial Advisor in St Albans, Hertfordshire. We live as a family just outside Hertford in Hertfordshire.

I work as an Artist Manager for a London Managemenr Company. Between us we stay in the house up to 5 times per year as well as renting out to our guests.

Charlotte Ambrose purchased this house in 2008

Why Charlotte Ambrose chose Porters

The property was in a great location as it was so close to the beach and Holetown. Holetown has continued to grow into a hub of high end restaurants and bar whilst still maintaining local charm making this house the perfect location for holiday makers. You are so close to everything you could possibly need.

What makes this house unique

The house has turned out to be a great investment as Holetown has developed year on year with a growing number of excellent bars, restaurants and shops.

Juju's beach bar on the beach nearest to us is great for food, drinks and beach chairs in the day.

What is also great is the proximity to the west coast road where a bus runs from north to south and there is also access via bus to Oistins.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I wanted to send you a mail to say we had the most fantastic time and the house was indeed fabulous and made our holiday and my birthday all the more special. We will definitely recommend it to everyone! Maureen was so very lovely and kind and although we didn't need her assistance I feel sure that she would have done all she could if we had, so hopefully you have found yourself a good manager in her. I have one minor suggestion to assist future clients, that as we hired a car from the airport it would be helpful to have some directions. We have driven all over the world so managed to find our way but others may not be so confident. All in all we have nothing to fault the whole area is amazing and the beach and again couldn't ask for more from the house in fact we all wanted to stay and were very sad to come home! Mrs S K Few-Wiegratz - 29th August 2010

Thank you Charlotte, we both had a wonderful stay at your home and fully intend to book again next year. Having Maureen

Superb Property & Location

  • 5 of 5

The house is in a wonderful location just a few minutes from the beach and in the evenings you can enjoy the sunset at Ju Ju's bar. The Lone Star restaurant also on the beach is fabulous for either lunch or dinner. Holetown is a short drive and has all the amenities you require. The secure complex with communal gardens and pool provide a peaceful haven and the house is well maintained and is fully equipped should you wish to eat in.

Turtle View - a perfect place to spend a holiday.

Many thanks

Beautiful Property

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a wonderful 10 day stay with our two teenage daughters from Turtle View. The property is absolutely beautiful. We felt thoroughly spoilt. The photos do not capture how spacious and lovely it all is. The plunge pool was heaven at the end of the day as it was a little cooler than the main swimming pool, which we had all to ourselves when we chose to use it. It is just a five minute walk to the beautiful beach and a three minute walk to the bus stop if you want to venture further. We shared our breakfast every morning with the little birds who will eat off of your hand and we shared the evenings with the chirping frogs. We had the greatest ten days in Barbados at Turtle view and we would not hesitate in recommending this villa - just heaven.

This holiday accommodation was just perfect. More than spacious enough for our party of 6 and the description and photos are a true reflection of the accommodation. The communal pool and private plunge pool are a lot larger than one can tell from the photos and are very welcoming. The communal grounds were very well maintained and in such beautiful and tranquil setting. The owner was real easy to deal with and have set up the accommodation with such helpful information for everything you need to enjoy your stay. A splendid holiday! Thank you!

My family and I have enjoyed quite a few wonderful holidays in Barbados. We have stayed in several holiday rental properties and I can honestly say that 2 Turtle View really does tick all the boxes. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending it to anyone looking for something a little bit special. The location is perfect; close to Holetown and all it's amenities, situated in a small secure gated complex, in beautiful gardens and with a super communal pool. Best of all the house is only a 2-3 minute walk to one of the most beautiful beaches on the stunning west coast of the island.The house itself is spacious, very well equipped and maintained. We have been lucky enough to stay there twice now and can't wait to return next year. Thank you to Charlotte for allowing us to extend our stay this time (unfortunately this was necessary due to illness); she couldn't have been more helpful. Thanks must also go to Maureen, the local manager, who looked after us beautifully and to Beverley the housekeeper, who keeps the house spotless.

Thanks again Charlotte, we all love your wonderful home and hope to return many times. Nicola and family.
