Guestbook comments from the manager

We cannot speak highly enough of this spacious, clean, well equipped apartment which is well located for all that the West Coast has to offer. Charles and Charlene are perfect hosts and Dorothy took such great care of us that we would have liked to take her home. With Gibbs beach so close by the picnic set and chairs were an especially nice touch. There were even cool packs thoughtfully left in the freezer. The tropical gardens are also a bonus. We will return to this idyllic spot.

Delightful apartment and garden

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Cee Cee's. The apartment is comfortable, spacious and well-appointed with an excellent covered terrace, perfect for relaxed reading and eating outdoors, and a lovely garden. Sandra, who comes in every weekday morning to clean up, make beds and do the laundry, is delightful and friendly, as is Anton, the gardener, who also comes in in the mornings.

Charlene was extremely helpful prior to our visit, putting us in touch with a taxi service and a car hire service and answering all my questions. There's an excellent information leaflet in the apartment, with details of facilities, shops, restaurants, places to go, etc. which we found really useful.

The only reason I've given this a 4 star, rather than a 5 star rating was down to the slightly disappointing weather - a factor outwith the owners' control. During our stay, the NW coast of Barbados experienced unusually large waves, making it unsafe for bathing in the sea for much of our time there and eroding Gibbes and Mullins beaches of much of their sand. Gibbes was returning to normal (albeit still a bit pebbly) by the end of our stay but the Mullins Beach Bar was so severely damaged that is has had to be closed indefinitely and the watersports and sunbeds were still out of action.

The bus services that whizz up and down the highway make it easy and cheap to access both Speightstown (our favourite) and Holetown without a car but, to see more of the island, I'd definitely recommend hiring a car. Although we spent less time than anticipated on the beach, this was more than compensated for by our sight-seeing trips exploring the island. Particular highlights included Harrison's Cave, St Nicholas Abbey, the view from Cherry Tree Hill, the Flower Cave and the spectacular rocks nearby, and the Foursquare Distillery and Heritage Park. If you like nature and wildlife, I recommend a visit to the Garrison Hall Forest walk and Wildlife Reserve. Aim to be in the Wildlife Reserve for feeding time at 2pm - it's a surreal sight, watching monkeys scrambling with tortoises for the best bits of banana. And don't miss the Arlington House Museum in Speightstown.

For eating out we can recommend Bombas, which is within easy walking distance of the apartment. It overlooks the beach just north of Mullins and, if you get there before sunset, makes a wonderful spot to sip a rum punch whilst watching the sunset, framed by palm trees.

Paradise in Barbados

  • 5 of 5

We spent an amazing week at Cee Cee’s apartment! The pictures do not do justice to the large, bright space! A constant breeze moves through the open doors and windows. One of the best times of day was drinking coffee on the shady back patio after an early morning swim! Gibbes beach is incredible and is only a few minutes walk away! Charlene provides everything you need to spend a longer time at the beach...chairs, towels, coolers, etc. People cannot park at this beach so there are only people who can walk there! It’s like having a private beach! We went to many of the recommended restaurants (great local food!) but also enjoyed being able to prepare our own meals in the well equipped kitchen and on the barbecue. The “crazy” yellow buses were so much fun and will stop at the end of the driveway! They play Caribbean music and are filled with friendly people! $1 will take you anywhere on the island. Sandra came in every day and took such good care of us! A gem! We even came back with a case full of clean clothes! Bamboo, monkeys, tiny frogs chirping, birds, mangoes, bananas, comfortable sleeps, gorgeous sunsets, and relaxation are some of the wonderful memories we have of our stay! We will be back... hopefully for a longer stay!

A small haven in beautiful Barbados

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent 2 weeks in Cee Cee’s very nice apartment. The location is perfect if you enjoy beautiful beeches. The Gibbes beach which we enjoyed every day must be the most beautiful and peaceful beach of the island. Since there is nowhere to park nearby only the people living nearby can visit the beach. The apartment has everything you need including a nice patio where we sat every evening listening to the treefrogs and watching monkeys looking for mangos. Charlene has a booklet in the apartment where you find information about nearest shopping, restaurants, interesting things to do........nothing missing. And Sandra takes good care of the apartment, even washing our clothes. We recommend renting a car(watch out for the potholes!) We drove across to the east coast and enjoyed a lovely lunch at the Round House in Bathsheba. And a must is visiting Hunte’s Garden. Amazingly beautiful. We do recommend staying at Cee Cee’s. It feels so private!

Fantastic holiday

  • 5 of 5

Me and my fiance had a fantastic stay at Cee Cee. We stayed there for 10 days and could not have been happier with the holiday. The apartment is nice and spacious, has a great outdoor area and the locations is perfect. Only a short walk to both Gibbes and Mullins beach and easy access to the bus to get to Holetown and Speightstown.

Charlene has been a great host and I would certainly recommend Cee Cee.

Amazing apartment on the best beach in Barbados!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely love this apartment. This was our second visit in 3yrs and there was no question about returning to this apartment after our perfect first trip.

First the location: it is a big, comfortable house set on a big block just across the road from the beach. To the left is Gibbs, a perfect, quiet, calm beach with lots of natural shade. To the right is Mullins, with cafe's and watersports. Both are only a few minutes walk from the house, which is helpful because parking is not always easy for beaches along the west coast. Also, dont forget to visit Speightstown, a few minutes drive north. Its a gem of a town with some nice cafes, restaurants and beaches.

Everything about the apartment is wonderful - plenty of room to move about, prepare some simple meals, and of course the air conditioning. Sandra comes in on weekdays and will do a clean and tidy, and also do whatever laundry you might have in the basket - she is the best!

We hired a car again from the place recommended by Charlene - Ballantyne car rentals. They are very friendly and provide a great service. The prices are definitely competitive to other rental agencies on the island. We recommend hiring a car, but you can alternatively take the buses that run regularly up and down the coastal road.

Charlene and Charles are fantastic hosts upstairs. A very friendly and warm couple who will definitely look after you.

I highly recommend booking this apartment for your holiday in Barbados - it is great value, the location is superb and Charlene and Charles are lovely people that will ensure a hassle free and memorable stay.
