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.

The balcony was a real favourite to be enjoyed at all times of the day from breakfast in the morning; great sofas to chill out and read during the day and a table and chairs to enjoy a meal. A great holiday with good organisation from Jennine before and during our stay.
