About Ellie Buckingham

Hi My favourite place to be is Barbados but returning to London is always fun. I also have an apartment in Cagnes sur mer in the south of France.

Ellie Buckingham purchased this bungalow in 2008

Why Ellie Buckingham chose Sunset Crest

I bought the property because it was the nearest property to the pool and the Beach and Zaccios the beach restaurant that I could find!

What makes this bungalow unique

One of the best things for me about the bungalow is that is on the flat so ideal for all ages. Also two shower rooms both with toilets, the dinning terrace which is open on one side so fresh and breezy on the hotter days, lovely long lawn at the front and a pleasant walk to the Supermarket past the Chattel houses selling their lovely goods

We loved this place - clean, modern and had everything we needed. Very close to the beach, restaurants and supermarket. We also really enjoyed having access to the private members pool.

Beautiful spot

  • 5 of 5

Lovely place, Ellie (owner) & Jacintha (housekeeper) were both lovely and really helpful. The cottage is ideal and fully equipped. We were unfortunately called home after only 3 days because of family illness and Jacintha was really kind when we handed the keys over. We would love to return in better circumstances!

Such a lovely holiday!

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I stayed in st James Barbados for 12days In Ellie's apartment and we had a great experience overall, description of St James and the surrounding area's was exactly what was described and very easy to get to places via bus or taxi. There are also a couple of shops and restaurants within walking distance from apartment which is very handy and of course the long stretch of beaches that you can't miss. We visited Oistins on Friday night which is a must! great food and lively music going on all night. The staff in bars and restaurants were all very helpful and kind, Our favourite restaurant was Zaccios which we ended up eating there three times during our stay as we loved it that much, very good size portions and amazing cocktails that can't be missed and the sun set is gorgeous.

Would highly recommended and we will be back!

The west coast of Barbados is famous throughout the world, the beaches are so lovely and we have one two minutes away,join the new and fabulous boardwalk, enjoy our lovely beach, have a drink in the Beach House & then walk down to the beach outside Zaccious (fab food & cocktails) with jet skis,glass bottom boats and water skis, a very lively place! Holetown is a must to visit it has First Street and Second Street with just wonderful restaurants, Thai, Indian,Italian and of course Caribbean (Caribbean food is just delicious) The Supermarket has everything you could want,they serve hot food everyday freshly cooked its very popular so get there early! The Chattel Village has good gifts clothes and a lovely little cafe. On the beach there are two very good beach bars serving good food Zaccios is one and the other Surf side which has big screen TVs showing all the important football matches and is extremely lively at the weekend! We are near to the coast road, so we have a bus stop very near, 2 Barbados dollars one US dollar to Bridgetown. Outside the Beach house pool, there is a bus going north to Speightstown
