One of our best vacations ever. Gertrud and Harold, the hosts, are fantastic and very responsive to any issues. We loved it (and them) so much that we have booked another extended stay for 4 weeks. Excellent site and accommodation! Quiet, spotless mile long beach and green flash sunsets. The large kitchen/dining table balcony area with a gorgeous ocean view also has lounging chairs, a hammock, and a hightop island seating four. We spent most of our non-beach time there. Very comfortable beds, ample closet space, large bath with shower and tub. Bonus items not mentioned in previous reviews, beautiful gardens, laundry machines on site, rooftop sunbathing with a terrific view, outside shower. There are two restaurants on the beach within walking distance, the excellent La Cabane is often rated in top 3 for Barbados, and Rascals for low key, local flavor with a water park for kids. Grocery store is a 10 minute walk away, taxi back is $7. Gertrud will drive you there for your first marketing trip. You absolutely can not go wrong booking Sunshine Paradise for your Barbados vacation.

We stayed for a week but we wish it was a month. Wonderful beach. Quiet, well maintained and clean apartment. Hosts are extremely welcoming and lots of fun. Highly recommended.

The first thing I must say is that the hosts, Gertrud and Harold are two of the nicest people you will ever meet and by far the best hosts we have ever had! We stayed at sunshine paradise in January of 2020 and loved it so much we went back again in early March 2020. I cannot say enough to explain just how wonderful it is, it is all perfection. The apartment is beautiful with cathedral ceilings and hardwood floors all whitewashed to give it a light beachy feeling. While lying in bed you can look out of the window to gaze at the ocean. Double doors open up onto the best feature which is the outdoor patio. Having the kitchen outside is wonderful. It is great to be able to be outside listening and looking at the ocean while making and eating meals. There are also comfortable Adirondack chairs and a great hammock for relaxing. When not on the beach this is where we spent most of our time, looking out at the amazing view! The apartment is perfect and you will want for nothing except to wish you could stay longer. Now for the beach, which is right in your backyard. Gertrud has everything you need for the beach, lounge chairs, sand umbrella, kayak, snorkel and mask. You open the gate and take 5 steps and you are in a perfect spot. This is the best part as you don’t have to pack up and lug all of your stuff down to the beach. Its two seconds to go back up to the apartment when you need anything. You won’t need to go any farther than this spot for relaxing on the beach. There are never any crowds, the beach is always quiet. The sunsets every night are amazing! The beach is beautiful with white sand and turquoise water. It is great for swimming as the waves, if there are any, are very gentle in this area. You can take great walks on the beach. A short walk to the left brings you to the pier and an outdoor restaurant. To the right is a much prettier and longer walk which also leads to a great outdoor restaurant called La Cabane, tables are right on the beach and the food and drinks are amazing! We headed out with just our bathing suits and a credit card, no shoes or towels and ended up there for a great lunch more than once. It’s a wonderful way to spend the afternoon strolling and swimming down the beach and stopping for lunch. It was the perfect vacation, so relaxing and fun. We will continue to come back again and again. You will not find a more perfect place! I highly recommend this apartment and the wonderful hosts!

Mesmerising view of the Caribbean Sea whilst drinking coffee and eating breakfast sat in the open air kitchen area. Fantastic comfortable bed, lots of space and lots of breeze. A new place but it felt like home. Thank you Gertrud and Harold for the most magnificent time. I wish we could've stayed longer. Best place we've ever been to for sure.

Our stay at Sunshine Paradise was everything we hoped for and more. The upstairs studio is very roomy, clean and comfortable. Cooking a proper breakfast outside with a view of the blue Caribbean waters was a joy and so was kicking back in the hammock while sipping on a drink. The location was great. It is a quiet neighborhood but not too far from the action. Having a car is a plus but not a must. Taxis are reasonable and public buses are a good option as well. There are a couple of local beach restaurants plus a supermarket up the hill within walking distance. Our host Gertrud is lovely, accommodating and knowledgeable. Go explore the many attractions of Barbados but come back home to Sunshine Paradise to see the sun set over the gentle west coast waves. Highly recommended.

We stayed a week in this wonderful apartment owned by Gertrud who lives downstairs. The apartment is great for a couple (with or without kids). Our favorite part is the huge deck that overlooks the ocean. It never occurred to us what a great thing it is to have an outdoor kitchen but it meant that we could be outside with the view and weather while making breakfast or dinner. We spent most of our time on this deck. We also really enjoyed walking down the beach and swimming right outside the gate. Very peaceful. Gertrud is a wonderful host and has lived on the island a long time. She is full of information about things to do and how things work - thanks Gertrud! As others have said a car is really useful and allows you to get around. We drove into Bridgetown for bbq chicken (twice as it was so good) as well as going out twice and cooking at the apartment. We would go again in a heartbeat!

Our family of 4, (2 adults and 2 children), just returned from our 12 day vacation to Barbados. The accommodation was simply perfect! The location is ideal as a basecamp for day trips around the island or just to stay and relax on the wonderful beach. Bridgetown is only a 5-10 minute drive, and Holetown is about 15 minutes. A grocery store is within walking distance if you prefer to just stay at the villa. The owner - Gertrud - is a wonderful lady who made our stay all the more enjoyable by providing very useful information about everything from where to buy groceries to which sites to visit. I would highly recommend this property to anyone, including families with young children. The property is very clean with plenty of amenities including a covered outdoor kitchen which is fantastic. It is also located in a safe area that is quiet (i.e., away from the bustle of more touristy areas). I would recommend renting a car if you want to frequent restaurants and/or see the many interesting sites of the island.

What a joy to leave a blizzard in the US to arrive at "Sunshine Paradise." The accommodations were perfect and exactly what we were looking for - quiet, peaceful, relaxing. The studio apartment was very roomy and comfortable, especially the king size bed. The large outdoor kitchen and balcony were the perfect location for enjoying the view of the Sea in the morning and the quiet breeze in the evening. Just a short walk for groceries so we could enjoy many of our meals right from our own kitchen. The owner was so helpful in providing us directions on how to get around to some of the best locations on the island. Transportation on the local buses was very convenient to get to all coasts and certainly gave you a flavor of the local culture. Each coast offering a different island personality.The restaurants on the island were excellent, great food and service while taking advantage of the beautiful oceanfront views. We would definitely recommend this location. It provides you with quiet solitude, but also the opportunity to travel to other areas for more action and entertainment. We would also recommend the daily catamaran tours with Silver Moon and Tiami. They provided a great tour along the West Coast and an opportunity to snorkel with the turtles. Also, a short walk up the beach to Weiser's Beach Bar. Good food and drinks.

We had a unforgettable stay at Sunshine Paradise. Every morning and evening we enjoyed the wonderfull view over the garden and the beach at the Veranda. We also enjoyed cooking at the outdoor kitchen. For Relaxing we did long walks on the beach or took the Kajak. Gertrud, the owner is the best and most helpful host! Thanks a lot for all your hospitality! Sunshine Paradise is perfect located for all activitys around the Island. We took a bus to see the wonderfull places. Even the bus tour was really funny. The Mount gay rum distillary, where we did a leadership tour, is worth seeing and only 10 minutes to walk. We hope to come back again soon ...

The place rivals top hotels in its design, decor, location and views. Very nice to take in the wonderful view while cooking in your outdoor kitchen and dining outside. Directly on the beach. If you wish to explore the island, you need to make friends, hire taxis or rent a car as the location is a bit isolated (not necessarily a negative if you wish to get away from it all). Truly stunning apartment.
