Jerry met us and gave us the codes to the main doors and Wi-Fi. Unpacked and it was just as I remembered from 7 years ago. Everything was in order and clean. One of the rooms had an issue with toilet (could have been one of the new occupants ;). But it was fixed on the spot. Not one of the 17 in our party complained about the St Lawrence Gap noise. IMO it is ideally situated for walking to eat out or getting drinks at night. We walked to dover beach everyday and sometimes several times a day. Tri-Mart is also a moderate walk away. I walked on the way back with 50lbs of potatoes on my back, so definitely doable! Jerry who works at night was always helpful with tips on where to eat and suggestions like the bakery truck that delivers to the businesses at the Gap. The View from the Condos is amazing and impressed even the most skeptical. Everyone in our party, had an amazing time. Thanks Barbara for sharing these condos with us. Everyone definitely wants to come back!

About 20 minutes from the airport and Dave arranged transport for us. In a quiet location but close to bus stops and in walking distance of Oistins and St Lawrence Gap. A good pub and Chinese restaurant only 5 minutes walk away and small supermarket 3 minutes walk. There is a small beach opposite and another beach which can be accessed through the hotel over the road. There is also a nice pool and jacuzzi. There are plenty of beautiful beaches nearby including ones with turtles. Not far on the bus to Bridgetown. A lovely apartment in a good area and I would definitely go back.
