About Gerard Christopher Hurrell

Maggie & I have enjoyed many family holidays in Barbados and more particularly at Ashanti. It is our "little" place of escape. It is important to us that any visitors enjoy it as much as we do, so please feel free to contact us with any questions.

Gerard Christopher Hurrell purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Gerard Christopher Hurrell chose St. James

We, the whole family, fell in love with the island - the people, the weather, the food, the amenities - for us it is perfection. The west coast, facing the carribean, benefits from beautiful white sandy beaches & gentle waters - for us a dream come true. Easy access to the rest of the island, although we must confess to preferring the ease of using a car.

The most important thing for us is that others enjoy it as much as we do - so feel free to ask us as many questions as you want about Ashanti or Barbados in general.

What makes this apartment unique

The island of Barbados is measures only 20 x 15 miles, so everything is within easy reach. Ashanti is situated in a residential area - if night clubs are your thing that is fine but we didn't wish to live on top of one ! The west coast is the "sort after" part of the island where many well known people choose to live.

Within easy reach are all the west coast beaches enjoying the warm waters of the Caribbean and the breath taking sea view can be constantly enjoyed from our living room & Master Bedroom.

A place of beauty & tranquillity.

Great Apartment on a Beautiful Island

  • 4 of 5

We (my wife and 3 adult children) had a fantastic holiday in Barbados. The apartment was spacious and clean, and Jeanne (who manages the property) was very helpful.

Although the beach was within walking distance, a car is essential as there are so many beaches to experience across the island. The only downside is the cost of food. Eating out is very expensive and the quality is not great. In particular, avoid De Outback, which is near the apartment. We could not understand how it got good reviews.

This meant that we ate in the apartment on a few evenings, and apart from a can opener that didn't work, the kitchen was well equipped. It was great to sit on the balcony and take in a spectacular view. I thoroughly recommend this apartment.

Owner's Response: We are pleased you had "a fantastic holiday" and that you "thoroughly recommend this apartment". The can opener has now been replaced but as we say to all our guests should you experience any problems please contact our apartment manager immediately so as to allow us to rectify whatever is necessary at the time. We would always recommend a car if it is your wish to visit beaches across the island but within easy walking distance you have both Gibbes and Mullens beaches.

Amazing stay!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent two wonderful weeks at Ashanti. The only down side was it was too short. The apartment had everything we could need for our stay. There were 6 of us for the first week, and it was plenty big enough for us. Beautiful views from the deck, nice pool area, and close to everything we wanted. This was our 10th time to Barbados, and Ashanti is right in the area we love. We will definately be back, and would recommend it to anyone. We like to have a car there, but many people did not, and were walking distance to the beach and buses, if need be. I would be happy to answer any questions anyone may have. Jeanne and Collis were always available, if we had questions or needed anything. Thanks so much for making this a vacation to remember. Thanks Gerry!!

Excellent Service, excellent Location :-))

  • 5 of 5

After finding ourselves having to change our accommodation at the very last minute, Gerry the owner was a life saver, although the property was undergoing decoration he and his lovely and very helpful Housekeeper Jeanne managed to organise everything, making sure we were comfortable at all times.

Having been to Barbados many times, we found this home to be in an ideal location, central to everything with a very good bus service. Beaches are within walking distance. The view is simply breathtaking. The property itself is kept very clean and simply delightful.

I can highly recommend it to everyone, especially if it's your first visit to Barbados and Island life.

Many thanks and gratitude.
