Petra kindly took us to a garage to get essentials as we arrived on a Sunday as most of the supermarkets were closed. When we arrived at the apartment we absolutely loved it, everything you could want was there, and we loved the creative way it has been decorated and everywhere was so very clean. The views from the balcony were lovely, you can see the sea, and in a nearby garden we saw monkeys playing. Maxwell Hill is a great place to stay, it’s a short walk to the absolutely beautiful Dover beach and going for a ride on a Jet Ski to see the turtles is a must. Maxwell Hill is not too far a walk to Oistins either. If you turn left out of the villa and walk along Maxwell Hill Road (which leads to Oistins) there is a great church which is well worth the visit called Revival Time Assembly; we were made to feel very welcome. The Miami beach at Oistins is lovely too and they have a special ‘Fish Fry’ night on a Friday which gets rammed but it is definitely worth going to. Maxwell Hill is only a short bus ride to Bridgetown where we spent the day at the Oval watching the cricket. Wherever we ate the food was gorgeous, the Bajans certainly know how to cook and as for the fish there are so many different types to choose from. An altogether most wonderful holiday. Would I stay at Villa Sunlight again? You bet!!!!! When Petra dropped us off the airport we felt so sad to be leaving. We are looking forward to going again soon. And thank you Petra for helping to make our first visit to Barbados very special and it’s a holiday we certainly won’t forget.
