Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Pat









We have all had a fantastic holiday and really enjoyed staying in your fabulous apartment!









We loved that it was so spotlessly clean, comfortable and so well equipped, I can honestly not think of one single thing that would make it any more perfect!









We hope to return again soon and would not hesitate to recommend to all our friends.









We fly home tomorrow, We are currently in a sea front apartment just up the road from yours in Mullins Bay, sadly the apartment does not live up to your standards in the cleanliness department! On arrival I spent the first couple of hours cleaning the kitchen! Luckily though the location is fabulous and we are enjoying the outside space and snorkelling. There is a restaurant next door called Bombas that serves the most amazing fish, curries and chicken pesto linguine, we have ate there a lot!! We met and chatted to Cliff Richard in there last night so that made my holiday :)









Thank you for letting us stay in your wonderful apartment :)



Kind regards







Sheila

The apartment was perfect .. and the staff were amazing .

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was all we expected and more. Very clean and well maintained. Close to the beach and the main roads for easy transportation.. The owner was really helpful with car hire and all other questions or needs we had . She made us really comfortable renting from her and was in constant contact which was very reassuring . We were met at the apartment and given a tour and asked if we needed anything by the house manager . I would most definitely recommend this property and others owned to any of my family and friends travelling to Barbados.

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

First of all a very big thank you to Pat for allowing us to stay in your wonderful home.

The Apartment is truly a home from home with everything provided you will be amazed at just what is provided. As i am writing this it is my last day here i can honestly say i don't want to leave.It was just what we needed peaceful relaxing its exactly as it looks in photos. Pat was marvellous to deal with even got in touch to see we had arrived safetly . Lloyd picked us up at the airport lovely man.we arrived at the Apartment to be met by Rachel who was also great to deal with arranged a bit of shopping before our arrival checked on us during holiday . I mentioned to Rachel that the tin opener did not work and a clothes airer would be beneficial we then headed off for the day only to return back to the items waiting for us brilliant thanks Rachel.Must also mention the housekeeper im sorry to say i can't remember her name but what a lovely pleasent girl and kept the Apartment lovely .

Pat has got a great team i would recommend this Apartment to anyone.We didnt hire a car as this wasn't our first time in Barbados we just wanted to chill out and relax we used the buses all the time .Used Carltons variety stores a couple of times for food Jefferson the owner is the chef also who loves to cook i can honestly say that we enjoyed his cooking and prices were cheap compared to other places we visited anyway i could go on and on but once again a massive thank you to Pat and all her team its been great

Great apartment with great location!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is amazing. We really loved it!

Pat (the owner) contacted us prior to our stay and provided us with all information in order for us the enjoy our holidays as much as possible. If you have questions for her she replies very quickly to all your questions. Rachel, who is on site and takes care of the apartment, was there to welcome us when we arrived and she's very nice. She gave us some very useful information and tips about the island.

The place was really clean (housekeeper comes twice a week) and lovely decorated (we love the big mirrors everywhere), the patio with the pool is perfect especially for breakfast and cool down after a day in the sun at the beach.

The beach at the bottom of the hill (Reeds Bay beach I think it's called) is located only 1 minute away by car or 5 minutes walking (maybe 10 minutes if you walk back up) was to us the best of all beaches to our criteria: no or very few tourist, quiet and beautiful and nice reefs on both sides with lots of fishes to swim with if you like snorkeling.

Then if you rent a car, which we'd advice you do, you can easily go around the island to see the different sites and numerous beaches. If not, taxis and buses are an easy way to go around the island.

We highly recommend this apartment and hope you'll spend vacations as great as ours was :-)

A slice of fresh Caribbean paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Gone to the Beach early December in a last minute pre Christmas get away. The apartment is one of three in a pretty, purpose built property purched on the hillside between the Royal Westmoreland golf club and the blue Caribbean Sea.

Everything was spotlessly clean and well provisioned with cooking utensils, etc, although I did search everywhere, unsuccessfully, for a can opener!

Nice flat screen telly and a great Bose speaker with iPhone / iPad dock (the older wide docking slot).

The apartment is very private and felt very safe. It is next to the road going up the hill but we didn't hear any traffic early in the morning or late at night.

The apartment has its own parking so hire a car and explore the beauty of Barbados. Can recommend cocktails at Mullins beach bar, flying fish cutters at Crane Beach Cutters, the Fish Pot in Speightstown, Huntes Gardens, Bottom Bay, I could go on and on...

Only issue we had is that the broadband wasn't working, but I'm sure that's fixed by now and, to be honest, it was nice to not be able to check work emails.

Thankyou Pat, we had a wonderful time.

James & Thenushya

Lovely apartment in ideal location

  • 4 of 5

The apartment's location is up the hill from the main road between Holetown and Speightstown, so you have lovely views from the terrace down to the sea, in the mornings while having breakfast you can watch the humming birds in the hedgerow flowers, or the green monkeys as they might pass through the garden, and spot the cruise liners passing on the horizon towards Bridgetown.

As the sun moves round, the terrace gets much hotter, and is in full sun by mid afternoon!! We named the lizard that basked in the heat 'Humphrey' after the detective in 'Death in Paradise'. We had lots of other birds visit, as well as a Green Heron that stalked up and down the hedge and caught lizards!!

The local beach is lovely, and worth the 5 minute walk down (10 minutes back up!). Everyone you pass greets you with a smile.

The apartment is well equipped, we used the washing machine ( a top loader, and quick) and the large bed very comfortable, and the bedroom relatively cool because it is built into the hillside. At night we would move indoors to avoid bitten insects, but not until we had watched the sun going down over the sea.

There is traffic on the adjacent road, but Gone to the Beach is further from the road and occasional traffic noise is muffled by the vegetation.

The wifi was very useful, TV limited, but there are lots of DVDs and CDs if that is what you like. Lots of beach towels to use, too.

Rachel who manages the apartment was very helpful on our arrival and departure, and also getting the hot water sorted out ( a problem with the solar heating).

We used the local buses a lot, and hired a car for a couple of days to visit places hard to get to by bus). The sat nav was useless!! Good job I had a really good map!!

We liked Mullins Beach Bar, and of course, Oistins Friday Fish Fry. St Nicholas Abbey is an interesting visit, the focus is very much on the fine fittings and the rum. The slavery on the plantation is glossed over. Sunbury Plantation House gives you a much better take on that aspect of local history.

I would recommend to anyone to stay at 'Gone to the Beach'
