About Teresa Marshall

I was born in Barbados where the Marshall family have lived for at least 8 or 9 generations. I went to University in the UK on a scholarship and did further foreign service training in Australia.

I am a retired career diplomat, having spent my entire working life in the Barbados Foreign Service. I represented my country overseas in Washington, Ottawa, the United Nations in New York and in Caracas, where I served as Ambassador. I retired in 2010 after serving for several years in the post of Permanent Secretary and Head of the Foreign Service of Barbados. After a fascinating but exhausting 24/7 career I am happy to step of the treadmill and enjoy my retirement in a beautiful country which I am lucky enough to call mine.

Teresa Marshall purchased this apartment in 2017

Why Teresa Marshall chose Sunset Crest

I live only about 10 minutes from the Sunset Crest development, and first became interested in Golden View when my sister and her husband purchased a unit and I helped to look after it on the occasions they were out of the island. I got to see for myself how well-maintained this unpretentious property is and how friendly and helpful the staff are. There is quite a community of repeat visitors, especially in the winter time, giving the place almost a family feel. so I decided to make an investment in a unit myself about 6 months ago. I did some major refurbishment and listed the property with Home Away in October 2017. I have been very pleased with the response thus far.

What makes this apartment unique

Golden View is a beautiful location, a convenient base on the West, or Gold Coast. but not at West Coast prices. You can walk to all the amenities: beach, supermarket, shops, restaurants, cinemas, and enjoy a safe and welcoming environment at an affordable price. The number of repeat visitors to the condominium complex tells its own story.

Just lovely. Ideal location. Clean. Great owner who really wants you to enjoy ypur stay

  • 5 of 5

Lovely apartment. Fully kitted out with everything you will need. Teresa very very welcoming. Ignore the front of the building. Once inside apartment 226 and you see the gardens and pool all is well. Ideally placed for Holetown. Lovely restaurants and beaches nearby. We hired a car as we wanted to see the island ...we used to live in Barbados so wanted to visit old haunts. But if don't want to hire a car plenty on your doorstep.

The bed in 226 is the most comfortable I've ever slept in. AC in bedroom. Lots of hotwater. I cant really fault the apartment. Go there and enjoy. Thanks Teresa.

Great little apartment, very clean and well stocked! Complex was well maintained with pool and restaurant/bar on site. Nice to have someone on the front desk at all times for questions/directions,etc.) Location is good, nice 10min walk to everything you need (groceries, restaurants, beaches, bank, shopping). Owner is a lovely lady and really nice to rent from, so glad we picked this place! I would definitely recommend staying here!

We had a thoroughly enjoyable time in apartment 226. Teresa has thought of everything to make her apartment your home away from home. It is extremely well equipped with everything you might need right down to a shopping trolley and umbrella. The bed was probably the most comfortable we have slept in and we did sleep well. Golden View is well placed for an easy walk to the beaches, bars, restaurants and shops of Holetown. We enjoyed breakfasts on the balcony watching the hummingbirds and the monkeys. Would definitely recommend and return. Thank you.

Owner's Response: Louise, Thank you so much for taking the time to review your experience at 226. I am so glad you were able to find the rest and relaxation you were looking for, especially after such a harrowing trek through blizzards to finally get a flight to the sunshine. Hope you enjoyed the rest of your stay in Barbados and that I will have the privilege of welcoming you back in future. Teresa

Peaceful Oasis in The Heart of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at apartment 226 was truly as stated in the title. Teresa has done an amazing renovation which was very tastefully accomplished. The décor is lovely and no item has been overlooked. Not only is there everything one could possibly need, there are the extras that were not expected e.g. the grocery cart and the beach chairs. These two items alone added so much value to our stay here! It was certainly beyond our expectations to not only have Wifi and TV, but also a DVD player with a selection of DVDs and also a selection of books to read. We had a wonderful holiday in Teresa's little corner of the world and hope that we will have an opportunity to return!
