About Jackie and John

We live in a small village in Wiltshire, England and we love Barbados! There is so much to see and do on this lovely island. Our apartment is just the prefect place to relax and spend quality time with family and friends. Our family are very much looking forward to our future guests enjoying this special place as much as we do. Happy holidays...….Jackie & John

Jackie and John purchased this apartment in 2009

Why Jackie and John chose St. Peter

Hello from Vuemont, Mount Brevitor! We loved this particular location as it offered that 'away from it all' feel in peaceful surroundings with wonderful ocean views and a cooling breeze. The swimming pools, jacuzzi, pool house, tennis courts and fitness room as well as easy access to local beaches make it ideal. Also, a very convenient supermarket is only 2 minutes away. We were impressed by nearby Speightstown which remains an authentically Bajan, unspoilt beach-side town and a great place to dine or sit and watch the sun go down sipping a glass of local rum punch! Speightstown has two beaches a good selection of shops, bars, restaurants, deli, bakery, art galleries and a museum. A little further along the coast road is Heywoods Beach. Mullins beach and lively Holetown are also a short drive away.

What makes this apartment unique

Green monkeys and humming birds visit the lush gulleys and gardens surrounding this small resort. The apartment is situated in a prime location on the highest point of the ridge with wonderful unrestricted views of the Caribbean Sea. We had lots of fun putting the finishing touches to our vacation property turning it into a comfortable, welcoming home from home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The apartment has been first class and we really have enjoyed our stay here peaceful haven that it is. We will certainly return to barbados and when we do we will check your availability first. This is superior in every way to most other apartment complexes on the island. Thanks for everything that you have done to make our stay very enjoyable and memorable.

Memorable stay

  • 5 of 5

This was our 7th visit to Barbados, but our first stay in this lovely, comfortable, spacious and airy apartment. It was exactly as described on the HomeAway website and we were warmly welcomed by Noriette, who gave us all the information we needed for our stay. The apartment is equipped with everything you'll need in the kitchen, with plenty of towels, beach towels, bed linen plus stacks of storage space.

We settled quickly into a relaxing time, spending most of our time whilst at the apartment on the veranda with its comfy seating and sunbeds from where you can relax and enjoy the superb pool and sea views, not to mention the cooling breeze that blows through the apartment, meaning we hardly ever had the air conditioning or fans on.

We frequented Heywoods beach just north of unspoilt Speightown and found good snorkelling at the far end by the marina, it remains tranquil and unspoilt. We also snorkelled at Alleynes Bay by the Lone Star hotel (towards Holetown) and swam with turtles, rays, octopus and fish when the catamaran tours docked off shore. You can actually walk all the way down this beach some distance (in the direction of Holetown) - the furthest we got was to the Folkestone Marine Reserve – the snorkelling is also good there just in the front of the Coral Reef Club resort. Rockley Beach on the south coast is also stunning, but much busier, well worth a trip though.

You really need a car for the duration of your holiday staying here, especially for exploring the beautiful coastlines and attractions. There are several places to visit but our two favourites this year were the Animal Flower Cave – a place we’d never got around to going to before – well worth taking your swimming gear and having a dip in the underground cave pool, and the views along the clifftops out to sea where the Caribbean meets the Atlantic are simply stunning. We also enjoyed an entertaining morning at Huntes Gardens.

Once again we visited Earthworks for a few pottery souvenirs to add to our growing collection and also the Batik gallery. Our daughter spent a day with Hendy again at his Batik workshop and she created two stunning pieces of batik – a must for anyone interested in this type of artwork. The café there is also good.

If you want to enjoy a holiday where the weather is guaranteed, feel safe and enjoy meeting some of the most honest and friendly people ever, then Barbados is a must and staying at this apartment would certainly make for a memorable holiday.

Nice relaxing 10 days at beautiful Vuemont

  • 5 of 5

We spent 10 days on Barbados in Vuemont. Communication from beginning to end with Jackie was easy and she responded quickly throughout the renting process. Upon arrival we were met Noriette, she went through the apartment from top to bottom explaining where to find everything and how everything worked (very helpful!)

The apartment was equipped with everything you'll need from pots n pans, utensils, plenty of towels and linens. The view from the balcony was great while eating meals and enjoying the nice breezy that blows thru the apartment, we very rarely had the AC on.

The pools outside the unit were nice and very rarely had more than a couple of people occupying them. At the clubhouse was an infinity pool and hot tub,plenty of chairs and tables to use and the wifi was free. The complex was very quiet and it was nice to come back at the end of the day to relax.

If you like to cook your own food as we do there are a number of grocery stores available, we found Massy Supermarket to have the most variety of food at a reasonable price.

We rented a car to explore the island but if you don't want to rent a car you'll find bus transportation easily available.

We truly liked the quiet relaxing environment at the complex and will definitely go back to Vuemont again.

Wonderful apartment in beautiful Barbados

  • 5 of 5

A very well equipped, totally comfortable, excellently positioned apartment. To the west coast for those dips in the Caribbean and the east coast for stunning Atlantic breakers and good food in Bathsheba while you gaze at that tremendous coastline. Both The Round House and the Atlantis Hotel do excellent food.

Spent lots of time on the spacious balcony with view to the pools, waving palms and very well maintained grounds full of colourful flowers; in the distance the sea.

Would recommend this apartment to anyone but if you like to travel around as we do you will need a car.

Jackie provides all the information you need for this and anything else you can think of for a great holiday. You are met on arrival in welcoming Barbadian fashion by Noriette; it really is a home from home. Hope we can visit again in the future.

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

We spent 10 nights at this Vuemont apartment. Booking was very easy and Jackie quickly responded to any questions we had. She also provided lots of info prior to our arrival. The apartment is just as pictured on the website. All of the furnishings are well taken care of. You can tell that it is more than just a rental apartment. We have rented numerous places in different parts of the world and this was probably one of the best equipped places we have had. The kitchen has all the pots & pans, utensils, and extras (like a blender) that you will need for preparing any food. Extras, such as a couple different sized coolers (cool bags) were provided, as were beach towels and two beach mats. There were plenty of linens and these were changed when the housekeeper, Noriette, came. The views from the balcony were great and we ate any meals we had at the apartment out there. We always prefer a top-floor unit so we don't have people walking above us. Only a couple of times did we hear noise from any of the other units in the complex, even though there seemed to be many occupied during our stay. The pool in front of the unit was virtually deserted, except for one day when a few kids were there.

You definitely need a car at this location. We had no trouble finding the apartment based on the directions we were given. There's a Trimart supermarket just down the hill. While not the biggest, best, or cheapest, it was very convenient (you have to drive past it getting to and from the apartment). Different beaches are located a short drive away, as our other supermarkets, restaurants and shops in Speightstown and Holetown.

We really enjoyed being away from the hustle and bustle of Holetown and even Speightstown. We hope to return sometime in the future.

Beautiful apartment in idyllic location

  • 5 of 5

We are coming to the end of a wonderful two week stay at Vuemount.

This apartment has exceeded expectations from the very moment we walked in the door.

It is beautifully furnished, has a spacious balcony, comfortable bedrooms and large living area. It is clear that someone has taken a lot of time to design and furnish this apartment.

Staff at Vuemount are friendly and helpful. Jackie arranged for Noriette, who looks after the apartment, to come and cook us a local Bajan meal. It was delicious. One of the best meals we've had here!

Jackie has been brilliant, sending useful information, recommendations and tips for our stay here. This included some of the nicest restaurants we have visited.

During our stay we have also made full use of the facilities at Vuemount, including the swimming pools (free sun loungers provided) tennis courts and even the gym!

On Jackie's recommendation we did hire a car and she was right, you do need one, but this actually enabled us to really explore the island and go off the beaten track.

We would highly recommend this apartment and hope to come back here again. Thanks Jackie.

Amazing Location, Wonderful Aopartment

  • 5 of 5

Vuemont is a first class development some 5 kilometers outside Speightstown. It is well maintained and all the staff are friendly and helpful. It boast two pools, an infinity pool with views over the coast and a split level pool in the shelter of the apartment blocks.

You do need a car as the closest beach is in Speightstown an the nearest supermarket 2 minutes down a steep hill by car. The area is very natural and not at all touristy, and there are several very good restaurants within ten minutes of the apartment, including a fish fry at Mertons Place - Moon Bay.

The apartment is five star in furnishing and facilities with wifi, aircon and washing and tumble drying facilities. The large balcony afford wonderful views over the Caribbean, and you can tale a well earned sundowner and watch the sun set each night. Jackie and her maid Noriette are first class and will offer all the help you need during your stay.

This is a first class location, first class apartment, that will ensure you have a very memorable stay in Barbados.
