The accommodation is perfect for a family, with two double bedrooms with air conditioning and a sofa bed in the lounge if more sleeping space is required. The kitchen is well equipped and the parking is safe and secure, not that felt to be an issue for us anywhere in Barbados. This was our second visit to this apartment as we enjoyed our first trip so much- and we will be back again sometime.

Good location, close to the beach, just across from Almond Beach hotel. We stayed at Almond last time but much preferred having our own space, we hung out there a lot. It feels really new, super clean, nicely furnished, everything you need and everything worked - wi-fi, air con in the bedrooms, TV + cable It’s well situated on a quiet street. There’s a nice outdoor dining area above the pool. We didn’t think we’d use it but a real bonus, decent size, you can lie out there in deckchairs all day in the sun and it lights up at night! Again it was really clean Speightstown is more chilled than the rest of the west coast, feels less touristy, more authentic. We found some nice restaurants which were cheap compared to most places in Barbados, had some great Bajan food. We had a car but next time might not bother, you can walk to the beach and local buses go round the island We met the owners John and Janice and they were great, obviously care about looking after the villa properly, and went out of their way to make us feel at home. Thanks for everything, all the best, hope to stay at your place again!
