About Stephanie Crouchman

Stephanie Crouchman purchased this apartment in 2002

Great location, perfect accommodation for us!

  • 5 of 5

Great location, is the perfect place to stay to discover the island. Even if you rent a car, use the public transportation or just walk a bit, there are always great places to visit. It is close to big supermarkets, medical centers, restaurants, the swimming pool and not too far from the beach. The neighborhood is safe and quiet. You can get free wifi from the coffee shop just opposite the house.

The apartment was clean and simple, more than enough for us. It had all we needed for cooking, rest and have fun. Stephanie recommended a lot of great places to visit and to eat, thanks a lot!

About the island… we will definitely come back again! :)

Owner's Response: Thank you so much Eduard for your review, it is great for me to know you really enjoyed your stay. The location makes your stay reasonable, the restaurants and lovely local beach bars are so close, sounds as if you got around to see all the local area offers, as you say you do not need a car if you do not want too, buses are close by and is a fun experience on its own The neighborhood is friendly and I have always felt safe in the apartment, just walking in the area is fun and is near to a great supermarket and shopping mall If ever you do return I would love the opportunity to help again should you wish All good things Kind regards Stephanie

Beautiful stay!

  • 3 of 5

The worst part of the 2 week stay was the prehistoric air conditioner in the bedroom, the ONLY air conditioner in the whole place that worked very poorly and you had to feed money all night long!

This apartment was within walking distance of grocery store, gift shops, coffee shop, beach, resturaunts, fruit stand, bus stops, gas station, outlet mall and a ton of other things!

It would be nice to have a washer & dryer available, we paid Jacintha to wash clothes before we left. Jacintha is a very very nice lady that keeps up the apartment.

Everyone on the island was super friendly! We had a blast here for 2 weeks!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review and glad that you had a great time on your stay as you have said all your needs are so close that makes the stay reasonable as you do not need to hire a car. We very shortly have a new Massy store opening that will also be very close and very updated The air con unit is new and up to date and serviced twice a year. I have instructions beside the unit to give tips on how to use to make economical, there are also plenty of fans in the apartment that can be used in any area required Because of the lovely weather we get in Barbados most guests including myself have very light clothing and mainly swim wear that drys within a day. I have never felt a need for a washing machine. As you found for any washing that you required Jacintha would do for you for a charge agreed by youselves. The apartment is cleaned and linen changed once a week by Jacintha. So pleased Jacintha looked after you on your stay, she is a lovely lady Thank you for looking after my home and hope you return to this beautiful sunshine destination kind regards Stephanie

cute, cozy place near beach

  • 3 of 5

This was a very clean, neat cozy one bedroom place that was in a great location. Access to the beach/pool/resturants/shops were all very close by. There needs to be either Wifi or cable TV and A/C thoroughout the place. Only the bedroom had A/C which needed coins to work. It was very very hot in the rest of the house. The TV only had one local channel...sometimes its nice to just see what is going on at home. Otherwise it was a very nice place.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time for a review as you say all the facility's are very close for the location this is a very reasonable place to stay for that great location. There is a great coffee shop that is right opposite and has the use of WiFi while enjoying a coffee and you can then get the use of WiFi on the terrace once you have used the coffee shop, perhaps you missed that useful information that is in my advert, also when at the Beach House you have full use of WiFi while basking in the sun right at the Ocean and swimming pool area. On some special nights at the Beach House they do movie evenings, and steel band evenings plus a beautiful restaurant looking over paradise. The TV is not usually used but offers local news, if it does there are DVDs that can be hired very locally. Most guests have said they just want to get away for that great escape and enjoy having evening cocktails and taking in the local food Thank you for choosing to stay at my apartment if I can help any time in the future I would love to help. Kind regards Stephanie

Beautiful one bed apartment, Holetown Barbados - close to the beach

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay at this beautiful, practically furnished Apartment. As it was very hot also at night, we needed the aircon on in the bedroom, which worked fine at a minimal fee of B$ 1.00/2h. However we found that the extra bed in the living room stayed very warm. The Apartment is very close to a beautiful beach (aprox 5 min. walk). The owner also shares her "Beach Club" Membershipcard, which allows you to spend time at a privat pool overlooking the sea. Across the road from the Apartment is an Italian Coffee Shop, which supplies you with free WiFi (it keeps dropping out, but OK to keep in touch with home) We never cooked ourselves but enjoyed different Restaurants in Holetown, Speighstown, Oistins.... which was great and all within easy reach.

The owner, Stephanie, and her contact in Barbados Jacintha, were both very kind and helpful.

We would go back and can only recommend it - a very nice place :)

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to give a review and it was so lovely to get to meet my guests on their stay. The Beach House is so great that it so close to the apartment with that beautiful swimming pool with sun loungers with a lovely cocktail bar. To have a private swimming pool for guests and to be able to look out over the ocean is very special. The Beach House offers WiFi which is a great way of staying in touch. The beauty of the position is that you do not need to cook. When I stay I even have breakfast on the beach at Surf Side just along from the Beach House It also sounds as if you ventured to Speightstown this is one of my favorite Villages so close again to the apartment, one of the restaurants I always visit is Jumas looking out over the sea the food is delicious and again offers the use of sunbeds on the sand If every you revisit I would love to help kind regards Stephanie

Beautiful Barbados

  • 4 of 5

This little apartment was perfect for our stay in Barbados. It was clean and comfortable. The air conditioner worked wonderful. It ran by a meter but was worth it. Any issues were taken care of immediately by Sophia. She was lovely!! It was quiet and felt safe in this area. We would recommend this property to anyone. Everything is within walking distance. Buses run all day and late into the evening. We used them often. The Beach. Club is really nice and the restaurant is amazing.. If we go back to Barbados we will be looking for this little gem!! Thank you Stephanie for your apartment and Sophia for taking care of us! Colleen & Ross Nova Scotia Canada

Owner's Response: Thank you so much Colleen and Ross for letting me know that you had a great time in Barbados perhaps when you come back sometime , you should go to Hunts Gardens located in the lush hills of St Joseph's, not far from the flower forest, it really is a must if you love gardens. I am pleased that Sophia looked after you, she is good fun and is helpful with any information on the Island The position as you say is so wonderful and you can get around so easily. Thank you again and for looking after the apartment so well on your stay. I would love to help again if you should wish to return Kind regards Stephanie All good things xx

Excellent - clean and great location

  • 5 of 5

This was my third time staying here and as previous stays, felt safe and secure and the place is clean and tidy and in a great location.

As this was not my first time on this island, we ended up exploring a little bit more, even though I still enjoyed the use of the Beach House and its swimming pool, and of course the beaches!

We went to the flower cave, did not go into the cave, but walked along the cliff side (very different to the Caribbean side), was pleasant and ended back at the restaurant which is perfect to sit down with drink and food looking out into the sea. I was hoping I would have caught sighting of whales here but unfortunately I was a little too late in the year.

Tried paddle boarding great fun and is definitely harder than it looks, but there is an array of different water sports, I would say give it a go. They are located all over the island, I did the boarding at pebble beach, a short drive from the apartment.

I also went to the open air theater which was great - never watched a movie that way before!

I cannot wait to return and use the same accommodation - it caters to my every need!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much Alex for a lovely review l am so pleased you have enjoyed your stay yet again, and it sounds as if you are getting around the Island getting the feel of all Barbados can offer There is such a contrast to the Caribbean Ocean side to the Atlantic side of the Island and you can get to each side in about half an hour which is amazing I have yet to visit that open air theater/cinema I will look forward to your return on the Island and hearing your adventures and helping with your accommodation Kind regards Stephanie
