Two of my sisters and I spent a wonderful 10 nights here. The apartment is just as described and pictured! Gertrud gave great directions for the taxi driver, so no difficulty finding the place. Gertrud offered to take us to get groceries the first morning, but an easy walk to the store for us. How convenient to have our own breakfast and lunch, so only needed to buy evening meals daily, and we found that 2 meals were sufficient for the three of us....more money to enjoy the sites! We literally had no problem walking up and down the beach the first 3 days. A lovely art studio within walking distance, and the best beach restaurant and bar, Weisers on the Bay, and easy walk every evening. We did rent a car for 3 days to explore the island, but bus within walking distance, and taxis reasonably priced. NO COMPLAINTS AT ALL about this rental. If I ever get to Barbados again, I will definitely stay here. Gertrud gave us fresh coconuts and she even built a fire on her private beach last evening, and we introduced her to S'mores! We visited the Animal Flower Caves, Oistins, Welchman Hall Gully, a great art studio in Speightstown, drove to the East Coast...and my favorite, the Zipline. Actually wish we'd had the car longer to visit some pottery places, but driving is not for the faint of heart for those of us used to driving on the right side of the road. Gertrud was a wealth of knowledge of things to see and do, and I don't know when I have ever been so relaxed on a vacation! Thank you, Gerturd, and I hope to see you again some day!
