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
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.
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.
"We were so very comfortable in the luxury of your condominium in Barbados. Thank you so much for all the advise and help you provided for us in the rental process." - Debbie G (USA).
"It was fantastic, the apartment was gorgeous and never have I felt so relaxed." - Darren W (UK).
"I can't wait to return, we had the most wonderful holiday ever and the apartment was perfect." - Jan W (UK).
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.
