Guestbook comments from the owner

I thoroughly enjoyed my time at the apartment. The furnishings were simple and tasteful and the space was more than adequate.

The kitchen was stocked with all the basic utensils and a 4 burner stove, which made it easy to stay in for meals on days I didn’t want to go out.

The location was also perfect, it is a very short walk to the beach, coffee shop, shopping and a little convenience store, taxis and public transportation. I will definitely bookmark this spot for future visits.

This apartment is in an ideal area. Close to shops, beach, and public transport. Not far from anything on the island. They actually made improvements to it since the last time I stayed. I used the pool too, and it was very nice. Granville is very nice and accommodating. No issues here.

Perfect location for beach & basics !

  • 5 of 5

Have stayed here in several of Granville's apt's. Just the essentials folks--but clean and STEPS to all you will want for the barbados experience! I hesitate to be this positive as it may mean the units are unavailable for our annual winter vaca.!

great place great location

  • 5 of 5

First off don't believe the bad reviews, this place is very nice, clean, comfortable, good ac, wifi nice pool, right across the street from accra beach, quay side mall, bus stop right out your door. It is not the ritz but for the budget traveler you cant beat it. nice little kitchen , nice shower. Granville is very attentive to your needs. We left our cell phone in the safe when we left and he was kind enough to send it to us in the united states! We stayed in March of 2015 and we are coming back in March 2016 and very much looking forward to a return visit.

Great Location; Good Value

  • 4 of 5

We stayed 3 weeks in a ground floor apt with access to the garden and the pool area. Nice to be able to sit outside among the bright crotons in the hundreds of plant pots. Pool and area was pleasant to sit out as well. New Vegan restaurant downstairs. The apartment was reasonable size for 2 people, everything we needed was there. It was well cleaned with AC and good wifi. TV with news channels and other TV stations and radio too. The Quay side shopping mall with convenience store, restaurants was 2 min from our door. The Rockley Beach (also called Accra beach) was less than 5 min away. Two large grocery stores, TriMart and Massey were a nice 20 minute walk away (or bus if you wished). The beach boardwalk starts right at Rockley Beach and is a great way to start or end the day. Lots of restaurants within a 2 - 20 minute walk. 20 min bus (or ZR small van) ride to Bridgetown or to Oistins for a great fish dinner. Granville was helpful and quickly attended to a couple of small problems that arose. We would stay again.
