About Elma Cole

Mr & Mrs Cole. - professional couple living in Surrey UK and now retired.

Elma Cole purchased this apartment in 2009

Why Elma Cole chose Lower Carlton

We love the warmth and friendliness of Barbados and were regular visitors to the Island for some 20 years before deciding to buy a property of our own.

What makes this apartment unique

Peaceful and comfortable relaxing on the sun loungers overlooking the sea or watching the humming birds in the garden or watching the antics of green monkeys in the nearby forested land.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have just returned from our brilliant holiday at El Vista and we would like to say how perfect everything was. My wife really enjoyed the visit from the monkeys on 2 occasions. El Vista was the best Apartment we have stayed in on all our foreign holidays and really hope we can stay again in the future. Many thanks once again.

This apartment is perfect for a couple or a small group of friends! The balcony is so nice with the plunge pool and the kitchen is well equipped for cooking big meals (lots of pots/pans even a blender). The bed was super comfortable and really nice pillows. Great location and only 10 mins walk to the coast. The hill on the way back up to the apartment is steep! But it's worth it for the view. I would recommend staying here - its super quiet and private. You never see anyone from over the fence cos its really high. There's a great restaurant about 7 minutes walk away called 'De outback'. Its really out of the way and do great cocktails and some of the best snapper fish I've ever eaten!

Fabulous Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 5 nights and have to say it was an extremely comfortable apartment and exactly as described.I can't think of anything that we might have needed that wasn't supplied. They really have thought of everything. Everything is of a high quality including M and S cotton sheets ( loved the bed) and John Lewis towels! All correspondance with the owners was quickly replied to and any questions answered.The outdoor living space is fantastic and where we spent most of our time with views are right across to the sea. The beach is 10 mins walk and maybe 15 back if it's hot as it's uphill and we think one of the nicest beaches on the island. There is a small shop at the bottom of the road and John Moores bar just along the main road which is a great stop off to watch the sun go down.

If you don't have a car, the bus stop is at the bottom of the road and will take you down towards Holetown and Bridgetown or up to Speightstown.

Rachel the property manager out here met us exactly as promised and while we were out one day, a housekeeper came and changed the sheets and left us clean towels.

We had a really lovely time here and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it .

Lovely apartment great location

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for a month and had a great time. The apartment is lovely but needs a little updating, but overall it was a good place to stay, beds best we have ever slept on. Views fantastic from patio, bit of noise from the adjacent road but overall great place to stay. A car is necessary if you don't wish to walk uphill to the apartment . Everyone around very friendly and felt safe.

Elma and Tony very reponsive to emails,

Would definitely stay again, we loved the morning show from the monkeys and little birds who joined us for breakfast.
