Palm Trees 207 is our beach home in Barbados and we love coming back each year. We designed Palm Trees to be romantic, and as good as staying at a top 5* hotel. It is modern, beautifully furnished, well equipped, and practical. The master bedroom has a six foot wide 4 posted bed, and glass doors to the terrace. Step out and look over the tropical gardens, pool, and down to the beach and sea. The second bedroom has a carved wood headboard and can be made up as two single beds or a large double bed. We can also accommodate a third bed in the room if necessary for an extra child. Have a swim, breakfast on the terrace, relaxing on the wide white sand Barbados beach, play tennis or golf. Evenings we sit in rocking chairs on the terrace, drink cocktails, listen to the night noises of Barbados, have a romantic dinner, enjoy the sunset, and plan another day in paradise. We try to provide last minute Special Offers when we can. We love our apartment; and hope you will love it too

About Kelvin Medley-Jones

Pippa and I live in Christchurch, Dorset, England. We have owned Palm Trees since 2002. We have fully renovated and furnished the apartment to create a romantic experience.

We feel Palm Trees has the ideal location at Glitter Bay. Palm Trees is located ideally at the end of Block 1 – nearest to the beach - of the Glitter Bay apartments. As such, we are a good distance from and do not hear the noisy road. We are opposite the pool, and close to the beach. We have great views across Palm Trees, the beautiful gardens, and the pool (lovely when lit-up in the evening).

We find staying at Palm Trees very relaxing. The Master bedroom is very romantic, with a massive super-comfy 4 posted bed, and an ensuite with marble countertop and large enclosed walk in shower.

Each time we come here we take time from our own holiday to try and ensure that all items of maintenance or repairs have been carried out to a good standard, and also to add further features or improvements to Palm Trees.

Our aim is to ensure that all our guests love it here as much as we do, and will want to return to stay at Palm Trees again and again.

We have, at last count, seventeen 5* independent reviews from happy guests who have all loved their holiday at Palm trees. Lots of guests return, one set of guests for the past 8 years ! Some like to stay a week, some even stay a month.

Kelvin Medley-Jones purchased this apartment in 2002

Why Kelvin Medley-Jones chose Glitter Bay

As they are all privately owned, the 40 Glitter Bay apartments vary greatly in location, tranquility, apartment facilities, quality of internal finish, and services provided to support guests. Choosing a Glitter Bay apartment for your holiday is choosing between very different standards of accommodation.

Our intention is to give our guests a 5* review holiday experience at good value, and competitively priced compared with other Glitter Bay apartments available.

Pippa and I try to monitor what other Glitter Bay owners and their agents offer in terms of quality, service, and price, and do our best to give our guests the best value for money.

The prices offered at Glitter Bay do vary a lot; we will not always be the cheapest, but we aim to give the best apartment holiday at Glitter Bay. We also try to offer late booking, or single bedroom use discounts on our published prices.

Pippa and I hope you have found our website helpful. We look forward to your enquiry and can let you have more information if you are considering Palm Trees for your next holiday.

Please do check out our guest reviews for independent opinions of Palm Trees.

What makes this apartment unique

The other features distinguish Palm Trees from other Glitter Bay apartments are:

Our own housekeeper. We have our own housekeeper/maid, Eleanor, who provides a ½ day six day per week maid, washing up, and once/week personal laundry service. Eleanor is lovely, really friendly, has been with us for years, and is a real asset to us; she will make you feel really at home.

UK TV Apps and SMART TV. We have wireless Internet, large 46' flat screen SMART TV in the lounge with UK TV apps including BBCiPlayer and ITV, and Netflix for films and US TV series, a 42' TV in the master bedroom, satellite TV sevice, a DVD player in the lounge. We have iPAD to TV connectors as well so that you can download to your i-PAD and watch on our TVs.

Cool and Dry. The apartment is fully air conditioned, and the balcony has ceiling fans at both the dining and seating (as it can be very uncomfortable if you have dinner in the evening without a ceiling fan). We also have a sun awning to keep the balcony shady and cool for relaxing, and this and our wooden shutters keep the balcony dry if it rains. You can still relax and enjoy yourself on the Palm Trees balcony even when it rains !

Grocery deliveries for your arrival. We have established a relationship with a company locally (BC Discount) to allow our guests to pre-order for delivery groceries and other essentials for their arrival. Our guests can contact Sarah direct with a list of requirements, and pay her directly on arrival at Palm Trees (please note that we cannot be responsible if items delivered are not as requested). We do not make a charge for this introduction, but include it as “added value” to thank our guests for choosing Palm Trees.

Fun. We provide a few items to make your stay fun, such as our games libraries, snorkels masks and flippers, and a beach ball).

Guestbook comments from the owner

Barbados has amazing beaches and one of the best is at Glitter Bay. Palm Trees is a modern apartment and we have stayed there for many years.



There is an excellent daily cleaning lady and all the facilities you need including a lovely en-suite shower, the TV is tuned in to world channels including Premier League football.



The balcony is particularly charming with space for dining and beautiful views over one of the finest gardens on the Island with rare trees and fauna.



There is a swimming pool, easy beach access, tennis, and table tennis, and helpful staff.



The owners are lovely people who go out of their way to make sure that you have the most wonderful holiday experience.



All towels are supplied at the beach and apartment and shopping facilities are in Holetown where there are some lovely restaurants.



It is my favourite holiday destination and when we leave we count the days until we return, and feel it is our home when we arrive back.

Fantastic holiday, yet again...

  • 5 out of 5
We have just returned from another amazing holiday at Palm Trees (3rd visit). The location is outstanding with one of the best beaches in Barbados on your doorstep. Lazed away the days by the pool or on the beach, making the most of the beach facilities - Jujus and Lone star for lunches and Tony Tiger teaching our children to waterski. The apartment is fantastic, equipped to the highest of standards and Eleanor the housekeeper was wonderful as always - already thinking about the next trip.

Superb apartment in a fantastic location

  • 5 out of 5
Once again we have had a wonderful stay at Palm Trees and all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.
The apartment is beautifully furnished with all the facilities you could need which helped make our stay as comfortable as the previous occasion we stayed there. It is in a perfect location in one of my favourite parts of the world. Having Eleanour as our housekeeper really makes the holiday and I can’t praise her highly enough.The only problem is that the holiday had to come to an end !
Many thanks and we hope to be back as soon as we can.

First class apartment, clean and well appointed.

  • 4 out of 5
Palm trees has excellent views over Glitter Bay, the apartment is light and has been refurbished to a high standard. The maid, Eleanor, cleans on a daily basis and even repaired my son's torn trousers. Do leave her a generous tip.

First class all round.

relaxing holiday

  • 5 out of 5
Palm Trees was exactly like the pictures and the description showed. It is located on the second floor, and there are palm trees and other tropical shrubs in front of the terrace, but you still had a great view on the garden and the pool. It was clean, thanks to Eleonore the lady who every day made up our beds and cleaned the apartment. When I apologized to her for being late with breakfast, she assured us not to worry at all and that she would come back later to finish her cleaning. We were picked up at the airport, which was a relaxing start of our holiday. At the resort the concierge helped us arrange car rental. Starting the day at the swimming pool, touring the island, finishing the day at the beach: the four of us had the most relaxing holiday ever! Highlights were: early dinner at JuJu's, a little further on the beach (closes at 7pm), lunch at The Cove (whose cook wrote an award winning Caribbean cookbook), Saint Nicolas Abbey, Harrison Cave (although quite expensive) and The Welchman Hall Gully
I would definitely recommend Palm Trees to others.

Superb appartment

  • 5 out of 5
We have just returned from a fantastic holiday . The whole process from booking, airport transfer, welcome from Eleanor the maid and breakfast provisions was great, and we instantly felt at home and relaxed.
The appartment was spotlessly clean and very well stocked.
A big plus was the on site bar/ lunch restaurant and concierge service. The staff were all very helpful and friendly.
If you choose not to hire a car the bus service to Holetown is great with busses from outside the complex every few minutes and a great choice of restaurants for all tastes and budgets.
I would definitely recommend this appartment to a friend.
