Nice area in St James. Close to restaurants beaches and stores.
Nice place to dine in or dine out
Pool and deck make it easy to relax
Would definitely go back
All in all, a great and quaint little place that gets much bigger the second the doors to the patio are opened. A/C works fantastic throughout the entire house which was a bit of a necessity heading there in June. I have stayed in many places and the A/C is usually a hit or miss. Not here. The garden surrounding the pool is immaculate and adds to the overall ambiance of the property. Splash pool? Perfect! Just make sure you put a towel down on the tile when coming out as it can get a bit slick.
Denise was and is fantastic and a definite asset to the property. Stanley? What can I say about Stanley besides "THE MAN!!" You can rent a car or call for cabs, but there is nothing like a well-maintained (new) van with a driver who knows everything and is always on time! He is worth every penny and made our vacation that much better knowing we never had to wait and he was ready whenever we were.
Mullins is great...Ask for Kelvin! Tell him the Philly boys sent ya! Also, a short walk up the road, Cin Cin for dinner. AMAZING!
Just so everyone doesn't think this is a scripted review, we did have one hiccup in the place the first morning we were there that needed attention, more so because the power went out on the island, and not the fault of Louise and Andrew. They were very quick to attend to this and a testament to great landlords/owners. 5-star all the way!
Thank you so much Craig for such a great review and Andrew and I are so pleased you enjoyed your stay so much at Emerald Pearl. We are lucky to have the help of Denise and Stanley and also the support network we have in place when there is a 'hiccup' to minimise any disruption for guests.
We hope you will be able to return soon to Emerald Pearl and recommend our house to others.

The condo is beautiful and very very clean. Each bed is extremely comfortable and everything works perfectly. The kitchen is well appointed and we loved having breakfast on the patio by the pool. The location was perfect for us. We loved using the local buses to go to different west coast beaches and eating wonderful fresh fish at all the beach bars. Denise, the housekeeper, and Stanley, the driver were both wonderfully helpful and delightful people. Our only complaint is that we're not staying longer.
Thank you so much for your wonderful review. We are so pleased you liked our apartment and that you enjoyed your stay so much. We do hope you will return in the future and recommend our apartment to others.

Absolutely beautiful Apartment
The pictures don't lie! This apartment is absolutely stunning and has everything one needs away from home to enjoy wonderful holidays. It was also clean and well designed. Having a pool to ourselves made it even more special. Denise cleaned up every day and even did some washing. From the apartment it is only a short walk to the beach (100m), but be carefull when crossing the street. It is the main street along the coast and all busses pass through there, which was the only negative point about the apartment: when sitting on the terrace the street noise was loud.
We hired a car because that makes it easier to see the island and to do the shopping. The apartment is a bit out of the way, which is not unusual for Barbados, unless you stay at St. Lawrence Gap. Unfortunately we were not allowed to drink at the Waves Hotel Bar (across the street) as it is all inclusive. We once walked to Il Tempio. It has a small bar, good for sunset. We had to take the car to visit other restaurants (like Zaccios). It was our first time in Barbados so we were not used to the characteristics of this island. The weather is great in March, not too warm and just a bit of rain. We did feel a bit awkward when people came and greeted us and then asked for money. The Barbadians also seem to like noise.
We loved to BBQ and enjoy the shade on the terrace. All in all we had a great time at the apartment.
Our stay at Emerald Pearl was amazing. My sons and I absolutely loved staying in the villa. It was like home away from home, everything was available and very tastefully decorated. You did an amazing job Louise and we especially loved using the pool everyday. Very close to the beach, shops and restaurants. Denise, the Housekeeper, was incredible and we will really miss her. The house was exceptionally clean. Thanks to her we discovered Zaccios which has an excellent beach and great food. We will most definitely return and will recommend to friends.
Emerald Pearl is one of the nicest rental places we stayed at around the world. One of the "things" that makes it the best is Denise, the housekeeper. She is truly the nicest human being, keeps the condo very clean, and has an eye for detail. We felt very spoiled by Denise's attentive care. The condo has good quality finishes, the kitchen is well equiped, very comfortable bed with good quality linens. We enjoyed the pool every day after coming home from the beach, and the outdoor living is top notch. Our favorite beach is Rockley Beach on the south side, 2 min drive from the best roti place on the island, Ackee Tree. Do not miss Cin Cin, while a bit pretentious, the food was the best in my opinion. Try the gnocchi at Il Tempio, the Backyard BBQ (went there twice), breakfast at Flindt, the bread pudding at Cariba, cocktails and sushi at Nishi. Thank you Louise and Andrew for sharing your home with us, we hope to return soon.
