Exclusive Sugar Hill Apartment. Gated. Beach Club Membership. Near To Beaches
Although I am British, I was lucky enough to spend my early childhood years in the Caribbean, particularly Barbados. My husband and I have been going out to Barbados for many years for our holidays and we know the island very well. We live in Cambridge in the UK.
Kate purchased this Apartment in 2015
Why Kate chose Holetown
Obviously Barbados has a very special significance for me because of my time there as a child but putting that aside I love everything about the island. The people are so friendly and always make you feel welcome where ever you go. It is a very safe place and we love to just hire a car and get lost on the island! I like the laid back culture and I particularly enjoy the local food and the rum shacks as well as the upmarket international restaurants on the West Coast. I like the contrast between the sophisticated West Coast with its calm Caribbean waters and the unspoilt, often deserted coast of the rougher Atlantic East side.
What makes this Apartment unique
I was instantly attracted to Yellow Bird because of the private roof top terrace. I felt that it had an advantage over the ground floor apartments because of the amazing views. During the day I love to glimpse the Caribbean sea between the lush palm trees. When dusk approaches, it is my favourite place to be because I love to watch the amazing colours in the sky as the sun sets and listen to the tree frogs. With a sundowner in my hand, and still time to prepare for evening plans, I find this the ultimate in relaxation!

Loved Yellowbird and Barbados
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Yellowbird. The apartment met all our needs and the surrounding grounds were lovely. The Sugar Hill staff were friendly and helpful when we need them. We’ll definitely have fond memories of our stay.
Thank you for your great review. It's lovely to hear that you enjoyed your stay in Yellow Bird and that you found the staff at Sugar Hill so helpful and friendly. I'm glad that you have taken happy memories back with you. You are very welcome to come back!
Another great stay at Yellow Bird
This is our third visit to Yellow Bird. Everything was great as always. Thanks to Kate, Phil and Alicia for making this another holiday to remember.
Thank you for your lovely review. It's always a pleasure to welcome you both back to Yellow Bird! I will pass this on to Phil and Alicia to read because they both work very hard to ensure that all my guests have a wonderful stay!
Brilliant Property - Great Location - Access to Private Beach Club
My wife and I have now stayed many times at Yellow Bird - it is a fully equipped one bedroom condo with a sundeck above this second floor condo overlooking beautiful palm trees and gardens with the ocean in the background which we often use for dining in the evening - access to the nearby private beach club makes this property exceptional - it is in the best part of Barbados in a gated community - exceptionally quiet and safe.
Thanks Al for your lovely review. It's always a pleasure to welcome you both back to Yellow Bird!
An Incredible 2nd Stay in Yellow Bird
We were thrilled with our second stay at Yellow Bird. We enjoyed a long liesurely 2-week holiday and were not at all ready to leave when it was time to go home. When we arrived at the flat, everything was tidy and fresh, just as we remembered. The relaxing sounds of the frogs and night breeze put us right to sleep after a long flight.
Phil was again great, helping us keep the flat tidy and refreshing when we came back from days out. Kate and Mark's recommendations for around the island were immensely helpful yet again, with the Round House in Bathsheba being a particular favourite. We also really loved the flying fish sandwiches, burgers, and rum punches at the Fairmont Beach Pavilion for a quick lunch. It was the perfect way to relax on a lazy day at the beach. A seaside table (by Kate's recommendation) for dinner at Champers was a wonderful treat.
However, I think our favourite part of this holiday was relaxing in the flat itself. Breakfast and dinner on the dining terrace with the ceiling fan humming was a wonderful experience every day. Grilling corn and kebabs on the top terrace with homemade pitchers of rum punch made for a lovely afternoon in the sunshine. The pool was such a quick walk down when we needed a dip to cool off. The quiet and peace of Sugar Hill allowed us to settle into many good books as well as each other's company for our romantic holiday.
We stayed about a week during our previous holiday at Yellow Bird. This time we stayed for two. If only the next time, we could stay for a whole month. Can't wait to go back!

Lovely apartment in Sugar Hill
Stayed here for an all too brief few days in October. Lovely apartment, well appointed, with a private sun terrace(mind the stairs in the rain), which we'd highly recommend. Just a few steps away from a large pool with plenty of sunbeds. Onsite restaurant or its only a few minutes drive from Holetown with a variety of restaurants to choose from. Hire a car to explore the island and use Kate's very comprehensive guide on places to go. We'd add the Lone Star restaurant to her list of recommendations of places to eat for somewhere special.
Thank you for your lovely review. I'm glad that you enjoyed your stay in Yellow Bird and that you also managed to explore the island. Thanks for your feedback on Lone Star restaurant - it's always great to hear about my guests' experiences of places to eat so that I can add them to my own guide! You are very welcome to come back and stay again!
Beautiful, relaxing place to stay!
Yellow Bird is a gorgeous condo with wonderful outdoor space. It was nicely furnished, the grounds were impeccable, and the pool(s) are amazing. It's secluded but close to the city when/if you want to leave. Even more, Kate and Maisha were wonderful to work with. I would definitely stay here again.
Thank you so much for your lovely review! I agree what a wonderful location Sugar Hill is. It is a very luxurious site with beautifully kept grounds and yet only such a short distance from both the West coast beaches and all the amenities of Holetown. I hope to welcome you back again!
Yellow Bird is within 5 minutes drive of pretty Holetown where you will find all essential amenities. It has a large supermarket, a post office, a patisserie, banks, garage, medical centre and a hardware store. You will also find duty free shopping, boutique shops as well as famous fashion shops such as Ralph Lauren, Cartier and Louis Vuitton in upmarket Lime Grove with its modern cinema. Holetown also offers a big choice of restaurants and bars.
Also within 5 minutes drive is the Fairmont Pavilion Beach Club to which you have complimentary membership. This offers water sports, loungers, a bar and outside café/restaurant and is set on one of the island's prettiest beaches.
Sugar Hill Estate itself has a clubhouse which offers an infinity swimming pool, 4 tennis courts, another large swimming pool, gym and a restaurant. This is all 2 minutes walk from the apartment.
Further afield but still within easy car driving distance are numerous attractions such as Sunbury Plantation House, Harrisons Cave, The Flower Forest, the Mount Gay Rum Factory (lunch and tour) and Earthworks Pottery. A trip to the unspoilt and often deserted beaches such as Bottom Bay on the South-East Coast will take about an hour and of course a trip into the historical capital Bridgetown should not be missed. There you will find lots of duty free shopping, good quality restaurants, a museum and an attractive harbour where you can pick up a catamaran cruise for the day.
There is so much to do and see on this beautiful island that we would be very pleased to send out an information pack with our own personal recommendations in it when you book the property.
