Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you Lousie. Your condo was lovely and I would recommend it to anyone planning a visit to Barbados- the location is ideal and the setting very nice, with very nice neighbours. If we ever return to Barbados, I will definitely look for this unit again.

First class

  • 5 of 5

We have just stayed at this beautiful house for 10 days and everything was perfect. The house is furnished beautifully to blend in with the Caribbean location. The kitchen was equipped exceptionally well with everything at a superior standard. I can’t fault anything at all. The owners were fantastic from the start and replied to emails promptly. I would definitely recommend this house as 5* and cannot wait to return.

Fabulous, relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at this property. The apartment is very nicely decorated and extremely well equipped. The location for us was perfect - it was quiet and peaceful yet within easy walking distance of beaches, the supermarket and restaurants. We couldn't fault it. Very helpful owners too. We would definitely love to go back.

A most enjoyable tropical retreat.

  • 5 of 5

Being a native of Barbados and going home often (we now live abroad), we decided on a rental this time as we travelled with another couple.

Rockey Resort was the perfect choice as it was a very familiar site, located 500 meters away from my original home. Our rental at 205 Golden Grove was an absolute pleasure to stay in.

The unit is well kept and tastefully decorated, yet simple but practical. Mark and Louise (the owners) are a pleasure to deal with and quickly responded to our enquires. We found the resort to be the perfect place to relax without the business of the normal touristy areas. Watching the family of monkeys make their daily morning track through the golf course was an added treat. You can sit on the little balcony and observe them going by each morning. The large property is also ideal for quiet evening walks around the golf course. The beach is literally half a kilometer away with a supermarket even closer.

We only have nice things to say about the Rockley Resort.

If you're looking for quiet and serene, you won't be disappointed.

Rockley review for 205 Golden Grove

  • 5 of 5

This was an ideal property for us and we loved the quiet location of Rockley Golf Club. The two bedroom house was modern, clean and well maintained. The downstairs is spacious with a lovely little outside eating area overlooking the golf range, whilst we are not golf people we were very welcome and everyone was friendly. The grounds are very well maintained and the area is green and beautifully laid out. The resturaunt was good and economical and we felt very safe here. The communal pool was lovely and not too busy. This is a great location with Rockley beach not far away, lots of eating and drinking venues. The shacks are great fun as was the Tiki bar and Shakers. Taxis are good value also. A great first experience of Barbados for us and we look forward to coming again and we would recommend this property for a family or four adults. John Perkins.

All the comforts of home

  • 5 of 5

We spent three weeks over the Christmas period at this property and would highly recommend it. We have been returning to Barbados regularly for over 25 years, being familiar with the Island and this location, we recognised the facilities described. Situated in a quiet but convenient position on the Rockley Golf Course, it was a great base for us to enjoy the island once again. The house provided for all our needs and was very clean and comfortable, it has obviously been recently refurbished. Louise the Owner, has throughout been very responsive, any questions have always been responded to in an efficient and effective manner, both during the booking process and the course of our stay.

This part of the coast is our favourite as it offers calmer waters than the East coast but a very welcome breeze on the beach, in contrast to the West coast where the air is generally still at this time of year. We were accompanied by two teenage boys who had huge fun boogie boarding on Accra Beach for large parts of the day, allowing us to relax and enjoy the sun. Accra benefits from a range of eateries, from the Chicken George Shack to Chefette, for the lunchtime snack and Café Italia serving all our coffee requirements (I recommend the Chai Spiced Frappe).

On this visit, we discovered a local restaurant (Shakers) which is within walking distance of the property and provides a fantastic standard of food. This together with many other local restaurants made this a perfect base for us. For example, Apsara at their new location in The Gap is well worth a try, offering both Indian and Thai cuisine.

If your preference is self-catering, there is a large supermarket (Massey's) within walking distance, who even offer a minibus service to return you with your shopping. They stock many known brands, including a number of Waitrose products and certainly met all our needs.

Overall we had a fantastic stay and would recommend the property to couples and families.
