“Great intimate setting for a short getaway for two.”

My husband and myself visited Barbados for a week for Crop Over. The owner of the property arranged for a taxi to pick us up and provide us with the rental keys, the driver was not the person she informed us would be there it was his "brother". We had to wait about 5-10 minutes for the main guy to bring the keys. When we did get into the rental everything was just the same as the pictures, very cozy and clean.

The rental is in walking distance of the beach, and restaurants, the area is nice and quite, an additional closet outside the rental was available for our luggage, and there was a shared washer and you can line dry. In addition to the front door there is a gate with a pad lock for more security. There is no AC but that was fine considering the nice breezes coming throw the window. We were provided the password for the Wi-Fi but the signal was not consistently strong not sure if that was due to the raining nights we had.

We were meeting up with a group on friends for the events that ran really late so we honestly did not spend much time at the rental. We didn’t get to meet the owner but we did meet her husband and other tenant from the rental, they told us about places and events we might be interested in on our visit, they were very nice.

All in all the owner made a great effort to get in contact with us, but NY phones aren't the greatest in Barbados, we communicated mostly by email and she is great in her responses time. I would definitely rent from her or refer her to friends in the future.

“Our little peace of paradise”

I booked this rental for me and my boyfriend to getaway for 3 weeks March 22- April 12 2014.. I'm Canadian and he is from the island, we aren't a high maintenance couple, we just wanted a relaxing getaway without any worries and that's pretty much what we got. I have never used TripAdvisor before so I had my worries in the beginning but we ended up really enjoyed our stay in this apartment and we would recommend it to other couples!

It was a wonderful trip for us but we did find a small amount of problems throughout the weeks.. When we arrived I found it to be a bit smaller than the pictures had made it seem, but for just 2 of us it was definitely cosy. We found it was very clean, well decorated and liked that there were little extras like fresh flowers, a bowl of fruit on the counter and a bottle of sparkling wine in the fridge, that really added a nice touch. All the dishes and cutlery were brand new but we did find that we needed a cookie sheet for the oven or even over friendly dishes to bake with. I didn't quite like that there wasn't a real closet in the bedroom (I packed a lot of dresses that needed to be hung up), just high shelves that were a bit tough to get into due to their height, I'm 5'8 but I still had some issues. There is however, a small cabinet in the living area that has a place to hang up clothes but it wasn't able to fit my dresses along with his work clothes, so we had to fold a lot of it but other then that the bedroom was really nice. Bed was soft and the sheets were a light cotton so it was the perfect temperature at night. The bathroom was large but I had some problems with it.. It is nothing too big but the curtain rod kept falling down while I was in the shower ( it me a couple times) and the windows needed longer curtains over them because even though they had short ones, the building directly behind us could see partially into our shower. The last thing I have to say about this apartment as a negative, would have to be about the constant battle I had with containing the mosquito's. Both the living room window and the bathroom windows didn't have screens on them, so whenever we opened them to get fresh air during the day, the mosquito's would come in, this didn't bother my boyfriend because i was the only one they were biting. When I left I told this to the rental agent and she said she would have all that fixed for the next renters!

The location is in a quiet, safe area so I wasn't worried about being alone during the day or having to walk to the beach alone. the only negative thing i have to say is that there is a rather big home right beside the apartment that can make it feel a little claustrophobic at times.. The apartments front door is directly in front of their washing machine so when I had the front door open for a breeze during the day, the neighbouring family could see right in.. in the beginning it was fine, but after about a week of this it started to bug us. The house has 2 doors that could be used (front and back) but the family chose to use the door closest to us so it was always loud and busy, which got a bit annoying when your trying to relax and watch a movie alone.

There are 2 beaches that are very close, which I loved because I'm an avid swimmer, went twice a day most days. The closest one is small, segregated so its a much more peaceful experience. The second is much larger but it is about a 10 minute walk from the apartment. This beach is where the hotels are so it always has a lot of people around, but it also has security and a lifeguard station that made it all that much better for me because I like to go for walks along the beach after setting up my stuff.

So even though the apartment had its little hick-ups I would recommend it to any couple or single person! we had a great 3 week vacation and we would go back, the rental agent is very nice and couldn't be easier to talk with! give them a try and I'm sure you will be happy you did!
