About Christopher Gammons

British.

Visitor to Barbados for over 30 years. Fantastic place to be be with family and friends whilst enjoying this beautiful island.

Christopher Gammons purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Christopher Gammons chose St. James

We offer a good standard of accommodation in a great location. Quiet area but within minutes to the beach and all amenities . Whilst having a car would be beneficial for visiting other places on the island it is not necessary as most amenities are within walking distance. Alternatively take a trip on a local bus along the beautiful west coast an experience not to be missed. Each journey cost BDS$ 2 regardless of distance.

www.babyagogo.net is a company on the island that can offer the hire of travel cot, car seat, stroller ETC for families rental fees apply.

Please see video at the bottom of the page for a tour of apartment.

What makes this apartment unique

Our apartment offers comfortable, clean, secure accommodation at an affordable price in a beautiful tropical location yet only a short walk to all amenities.

We fell in love with the view from our apartment, the colours from hibiscus flowers in the garden the visit's from the colourful humming birds . Watching monkey's taking an early morning stroll along the perimeter fence whilst having breakfast on the balcony. What more would you want other than a dip in the pool.

In room Wi-Fi available Jan 2017.

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic appartment in a great location. The building is nothing special to look at but once you're in there you can appreciate why it was built in such a way, i.e. to get the maximum benefit from the breezes running east to west. Holetown has everything that you need but is well away from the hustle and bustle of the south-west coast. The appartment is within walking distance of shops, bars, restaurants and the beach. It's up to you whether you want to hire a car or use buses or taxis. (Note to people with a poor sense of direction: do not hire a car, you WILL get lost. Signposts are virtually non-existant on the island.) The appartment is clean and well-equipped with a large, clean swimming pool and beautiful gardens and friendly staff. To put it in a nutshell - very good quality for a very reasonable price.

Brill in Barbados!

  • 5 of 5

A very reasonable price, in a great location for Holetown. About a 5-10 min walk to all the amenities/beach. The apartment has everything you could want for self catering. Clean & tidy, great balcony with view of pool, monkeys in the morning (early)! Staff helpful & friendly. Massive very warm, clean pool! Quiet when we were there 11-25 May 2015. Chinese restaurant onsite, which was OK but then Chinese is not our favourite. Having said that, we had one meal there & another takeaway as couldn't be bothered moving from the wonderful balcony while sipping rum & playing backgammon! We never used the aircon, the fan in the bedroom was enough to keep us cool. We were really impressed overall, after our 3rd visit to Barbados, staying around St James area. We love Holetown and would definitely return to 211 Golden View. Thank you Alison & Chris..... we will return ..... one day!

The only negative I can think was the lack of towels, but that was no biggie!

Thanks again!

Totally met our needs and wants

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay in two years at this apartment and I am pleased to say that it is still as good.

We arrived on old years night, took a quick shower (hot water always available) and headed on down to Surf-side beach beach for drinks and fireworks. Walking back after midnight you really start to appreciate the breeze that feeds these apartments.

Bedding down on clean bedding, we switched off the air conditioning and just relied on the ceiling fan and natural breeze that flows through the apartment complex.

In the morning we just opened the balcony door and sat having breakfast overlooking the pool and colourful grounds. Then it was time for a swim so we took advantage of the beach towels helpfully provided and crashed around the huge sparking clean swimming pool.

I was ill for four days so we really appreciated the TV in the bedroom, which is tuned to the local Barbados TV station, as this helped to pass the time. My wife, who was 'nursing' me back to full health, really utilised the kitchen facilities using both the full cooker and the microwave.

The mattresses were comfortable and we slept like logs, the helpful CD player and DVD player enabled playback of the CD-R's and DVD-R's.

What we particularly like about the entire complex is that it is a community of owners. You're not going to get idiots running around, towels 'reserving' sunbeds (there are more than enough anyway) and other holiday making excesses that some people create.

If you want a totally relaxing holiday with no stress then this is the apartment for you.

Excellent apartment in a delightful setting

  • 5 of 5

This was our seventh visit to Barbados and finally we found a property with the perfect balance between price, location and facilities.

Because of the clever building design every apartment benefits from a cooling breeze, from front to back, so much so that we rarely had cause to use the aircon.

Layout was perfect: well proportioned rooms which were well equipped. The bathroom appeared to be newly refurbished, bedroom well designed with ample storage space and a lounge which enabled the playing of both DVD's and CD's on the facilities provided.

Enormous amount of beach towels - always welcomed when your baggage allowance is only 23kg.

The swimming pool was really quiet and well maintained with ample loungers and chairs.

The only downside for us was that we had booked and prepaid for a hotel for a further 4 nights down south, when our 7 night stay here ended.

So impressed were we with The Golden View Apartments that we got onto homeaway.co.uk and booked out another apartment instead since Christopher's apartment was booked.

Next time we come to Barbados this will be our first choice of accommodation - it totally met our requirements..
