About Louise Stevenson

We live in England and have been visiting Barbados for over twenty years. It has been and always will be our favourite Caribbean island for the warmth of its people, its beautiful beaches and ocean and the variety of activities it offers.

Louise Stevenson purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Louise Stevenson chose St. James

The opportunity arose in 2006 to buy our own property on the West coast. The location is excellent being only 80 yards from the beach opposite and with its own walkway. It is very near the popular West coast restaurants, including The Cliff, Daphnes and Cin Cin (opened 2010 and proving to be very popular) and a mile south of Sandy Lane. It is also within easy access to the Oval cricket ground (10 mins drive) and the Garrison Savannah horse racing track (also around 10 mins drive.) Golfing, horse riding, catamaran sailing are very popular activities - just to name a few.

What makes this apartment unique

Emerald Pearl is on the ground floor with its own private swimming pool and small garden area. It is unique in that it is the only apartment on the Summerland development to have its own pool. There is also a communal pool with a jacuzzi which is accessed through a private gate from the apartment. It is within walking distance of a local supermarket and also an Italian restaurant. However, if you prefer to have a cook, this can be arranged. Our lovely housekeeper, Denise, who we have known for many years will look after you very well attending your daily needs. There is also a concierge service which is run by our managing agents in Barbados should you require any assistance arranging tours etc.

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was beautiful. We enjoyed every bit of it especially the pool. Ms. Denise was the absolute best. I wish we could have taken her home!! She was so sweet, and gave us so many great suggestions. Every rental should come with a Ms. Denise. We would definitely stay here again.

Great apartment , good for exploring the island, excellent restaurantsnearby

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the stay very much. The apartment is practical, well equipped and in a good location from which to explore. We went to Barbados to watch a cricket game and the apartment is only 10 minutes from the ground ! A housekeeper is provided which adds to the ease of staying there and Louise the owner was super helpful recommending restaurants, rental car company, excursions etc. if I had one downside it's that it's next to a main road so there is road noise that can disrupt eating on the terrace but overall you can live with that for the location with respect to doing things and the quality of the home.

Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough good things about this home. When I saw the pictures, I thought it was too good to be true, but it really is exactly as the pictures show. The home has 3 bedrooms and a great kitchen and living room, but the outdoor space is what really sets it apart. Though it's in a condo building, this does actually have it's own private terrace and pool - the only unit in the complex to have one! We spent most of our time lounging by and in the pool, taking trips to the beach right across the street. There's a market only 5 minutes away walking, and you absolutely have to go to Cin Cin, a 10 minute walk the other way and the best meal we had on our trip. Plus, Denise was amazing - she was so sweet, and she gave us some great recommendations while we were there. Like I said, I can't recommend this place enough, and this will definitely be our home base next time we're in Barbados!

Excellent accommodation and location

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time staying at Emerald Pearl and the accommodation was perfect for all our needs. Bright, spacious and comfortable.

Emerald Pearl is beautifully furnished and extremely well equipped and Denise the housekeeper does an excellent job of keeping it extremely clean and well maintained. The location of Emerald Pearl was as described and ideal. The terrace is lovely for relaxing days by the pool with the added advantage of another larger pool on sight.

We had an excellent holiday and did a nice mixture of relaxing by the pool/on the beaches and also getting out and about to explore the island.

There are a couple of restaurants and a supermarket within walking distance, with many others easily reached by public transport or hire car. The gas barbecue provided meant we also had some great stay at home evenings dining al fresco on the terrace.
