The apartment immaculate and decorated to such taste, with every detail thought of. The hosts were so helpful and hospitable. within an easy 10 minute walk to the best beach on the island, Gibbes - we were in paradise. It was everything we could have imagined and more. Thank you so much!!! The only problem was that we were not there long enough!

                                                                                                    5 of 5
                                                                                                    This has been our fifth stay in various parts of Barbados, but the first on Sugar Hill. On entering the apartment you can immediately relax because everything is exactly as described and shown in the pictures, and you know at once you have chosen the right place. So I won’t go into detail as you can trust the description and images 100%. What the images can’t adequately convey, though, is the beauty, tranquility and serenity of the landscaped park-like grounds, which you can enjoy from the large roof terrace, which offers a glimpse of the ocean and is as perfect for watching the sun rise in the morning as for star-gazing at night; or the balcony, where you can have your meals with the palm trees swaying in front of you. This is also the lovely view you will wake up to each morning. The interior layout is well-planned and we also chose Yellowbird because, unlike other properties, it has A/C in the bed- and living-room. Thanks to the added outdoor spaces, though, you can spend all your waking hours outside, which is perfect. The grounds and the larger pool facing the sea are stunning; the pool directly below the apartment was perfect for relaxing. As August is the low season, everything was really quiet and easy-going, with just a few families enjoying their stay as much as we were. The housekeeper, who comes twice a week, keeps everything absolutely spotless; there is a great supply of high-quality linen and (pool) towels; and the kitchen is probably better stocked than ours at home. Being on an island you naturally want to enjoy the beach and watersports, and that is why I would choose Sugar Hill over other communities, as staying in Yellowbird comes with membership in the Royal Fairmont beach club, which is arguably on one of the loveliest stretches of the beautiful West Coast: adjacent to Glitter Bay with its clear, turquoise water and powdery sand, where you can actually watch turtles hatch. There are enough sunbeds and umbrellas, so it never felt crowded, and the sunsets are picture perfect and difficult to say good-bye to after three weeks. Communication with Kate and her property management team was efficient and reliable from the start; the fridge was stocked with the groceries we had asked for; and our request for a late-checkout was kindly granted as no other guests were expected on the day of our departure. So everything went smoothly from the minute I sent Kate the first request, which I hope will not have been our last.

The pool and view over the Caribbean was beautiful and we enjoyed many days lazing around the pool. The house has everything that any family would require and we had the perfect holiday staying in this beautiful residence. To date my wife and I have always said that we would never go back on holiday to the same place, as the world is so big and there are too many places to see, however we have both agreed that we intend to go back to Barbados and stay in this wonderful house.
