The caretakers were delightful. Friendly and attentive. The place was clean and well equipped. We had a great stay.
Overall a pleasant stay, but…
Overall we enjoyed our stay at this apartment. The host was very responsive and the property managers - Sheila and Gayle, were nice and accommodating.
Still there are several things I’d like to mention: there’s no dishwasher. It is not mentioned in the listing, but we kind of took it for granted. That’s why I’m bringing it up to the attention of future travelers. The air conditioners are in bedrooms only. Furthermore, one of the AC units doesn’t have a controller and is motion activated – very inconvenient especially when it turn on all of a sudden in the middle of a night when you move in bed. We had to switch if off at the breaker box as it was the only way.
The listing is not quite accurate: it says there are 2 bedrooms with 2 single beds each. The pictures show the same and it was a major deciding factor for us. In reality there’s only one bedroom with 2 beds and the other two bedrooms have 1 queen bed each. The managers did bring an extra bed for us, but put it in the master bedroom, which became a bit crowded.
Our biggest issue (though nothing to do with the listing) were the roosters! There are so many of them in the area and they are so loud. And if you think: “I don’t mind roosters, I’m an early bird and I’d like to be woken at dawn.”, forget it – these crazy creatures are crowing at all hours of day and night. Sheila shared our grief about roosters and said that these birds are wild and it only became a problem in recent years.
Spacious and comfortable home, great location.
Five of us stayed at David's place (Unit 1) with my family which included two bouncy young boys and my young adult niece. We found his home very spacious and comfortable for all of us. The dining are and kitchen were more than suitable and the rooms are a very good size. The AC in the rooms worked brilliantly and were essential to the 30 degrees celsius heat that lasted the duration of our two weeks. Any issues we had were resolved very quickly by the property management team who live 5 mins away which made our stay run smoothly. I would definitely stay here again, it's a lovely comfortable home.
I am always so very please whenever I learn that my guests have had a comfortable & pleasant stay at my apartment units.
My property management team also mentioned that it was a sheer pleasure to have such pleasant guests as you and your family were.
Thanks so much for the positive feedback. .!
We would be more than delighted to host you and family or friends anytime in the future.
Have a great day.
Good, could be improved.
Large property, clean, fairly comfortable. Tired bathrooms and kitchen, very noisy location at night. Hot in lounge and kitchen, no a/c.
Nice roomy "home away from home" at a reasonable price
We had a nice stay in Fitts Village, St. James, Barbados and enjoyed the home and our visit immensely. Sheila and Gayle, who do the local property management and housekeeping, were great to work with.
Our party consisted of myself, my son, daughter-in-law and three-year old grandson. The apartment was a spacious, clean and comfortable home away from home for our group, with plenty of room for everyone to enjoy a week+ holiday. The neighborhood is not glitzy, but it's nice by Barbados standards and feels very safe. The apartment is far enough from the main road to be reasonably quiet (other than the roosters, birds and insects that are ubiquitous to most of the island). The apartment is within reasonable walking distance (1 kilometer) of Jordan's supermarket, a couple of small beaches and a bus stop.
The nearby Wendy's Sports Bar is a nice-but-not-fancy venue where many locals and tourists gather. We ended up eating at least one meal there every day. My daughter-in-law has severe food allergies and they were very helpful in accommodating her. More upscale eateries, supermarkets and other stores are located a short drive/bus ride up the road in Holetown. Paynes Bay Beach on the way to Holetown, is a nice place for a family excursion.
This is nice place for travelers who are willing to live like a well-off-but-not-super-rich local and who don't come expecting a luxury all-inclusive resort. David and his associates made our stay there very enjoyable. We will happily stay there again if we go back to Barbados anytime soon.
It is always such a great pleasure to have guests like Thomas and family stay at my apartments. The feedback received from my property management team was extremely positive.
They were clean, considerate and took great care of the apartment unit, just as if it were their own.
Thomas also passed a few useful tips onto me, which Is something that I always welcome and consider to be invaluable.
I would highly recommend Thomas & his group to any holiday-home owner and would gladly welcome them back again anytime with open arms.
Thanks Thomas & family for choosing The Claraville Apartments and also for being what I consider fantastic ‘5-Star’ Guests.
Good location, safe, clean and friendly
We had a wonderful time while staying here. Sheila took very good care of us and the apartment. Short walk to small beach that you can get to others from. Short walks to store, restaurants, and busses.
