The picture is of My wife Liz & myself Neale, I am afraid the picture was NOT taken at our apartment. We have 3 adult children 2 boys & 1 girl. Also we have 5 grandchildren 4 boys & 1 girl. We live in Moreton in Marsh in the Cotswold Hills of Gloucestershire England. We rent our apartment to help contribute towards it's running costs. We do not rent it out to make a profit.
Neale Wallington purchased this apartment in 2008
My wife & I first went to Barbados with my sister-in-law & her husband. We were stopping in a place owned by a close relative. My wife & I just loved Barbados & wanted to return on a regular basis. I asked (Eddy) a local man who helped look after the place we were staying in, if he knew of anywhere for sale.
Eddy took me up to Vuemont where our apartment was the show room apartment. We immediately fell in love with it & the fantastic sea views. We bought the actual show room apartment.. Our apartment is situated on the Vuemont residential complex which has over 70 properties privately owned. Most of the properties are strictly private & are NOT rented as Holiday Properties.
We normally stay in our apartment for a period of time about twice a year. Each time we go to Barbados we like it even more, the people are so friendly. When we leave the apartment to return to the UK the locals say when are you coming home again.
An amazing week spent at the Vuemont thanks to Neale + Liz..
We can only agree with all the wonderful comments below.
The apartment is set out of town off the highway and so a car is not optional (there is a v. steep ascent up to the complex). Supermarket at the bottom of the hill (2 min drive) is great value and very well stocked for anything you could need (we loved the coconut bread/cake!).
The apartment is wonderfully presented, kitchen fully equipped with everything you could EVER need, bedrooms/bathroom/showers great and finally the beautiful balcony with padded loungers/chairs.
The main pool area is a great place to relax during the day, so quiet with beautifully kept gardens. The clubhouse just 50 meters away is also a wonderful place to spend the afternoon/early evening taking in the view and watching the stunning sunset each day from the infinity pool/Jacuzzi.
The tennis courts and well equipped gym are also just 100 meters away.
A few distances for the adventurous:
- Drive to Speightstown ~10mins, plenty of places to shop and eat.
- Drive to Holetown ~15 mins, plenty of places to shop and eat.
- Drive to Paynes Bay ~20mins where you can snorkel with the turtles (just head for the catamarans/boats in the bay!)
- Drive to Oistins ~30 mins, a must for the Friday night fish fry (recommend Uncle George Fish Net Grill (get there early tho!) and Pats)
A wonderful place to unwind, spend lazy days in the and return to after a busy day.
Thanks again for sharing your wonderful apartment with us!

We found the apartment to be very clean and well appointed. The Mount Brevitor area is ideal if like us you like the peace and quite of the countryside. A car is a must and, apart from the airport, most areas of the island can easily be reached in half an hour. On site there are tennis courts, a gym and three swimming pools. There is a supermarket at the end of the road so there is everything you need quite close to hand.
Neale and Liz were great from the moment we booked the apartment they shared all their knowledge of the Island giving us hints and tips and discounts on car hire etc which made our booking a pleasure.
The apartment is exactly as it looks in the photos, perhaps bigger than you may think. Everything was clean, tidy and well maintained.
We liked that it had all the little extras that you may normally need to buy such as lunch boxes and ice packs that are always handy for a day at the beach. It's just like staying at a friends house.
The apartment is located near a lovely beach called Mullins Beach that has a restaurant which we ate at often, althought it is over priced, all cafes/restaurants in Barbados are but you just have to be prepared. Our favourite beach was Paynes Bay which is 15min drive from the apartment where you can snorkel with the turtles.
We hired a car (which I would say is a must) and we went round the Island on a few occassions. I'd highly recommend driving around the East Coast its lush and tropical and completely different to the beachy West.
We went on the 'Jammin' catamaran and would say it was well worth a trip at any age. They have a slide off the back and floating lilo's and its a really fun day out. We also took the Cannon II deep sea fishing tour (4hrs) which was very rough but my boyfriend caught a 70IB Sailfish which was amazing.
If you are looking for a quiet, peaceful location and want to feel safe and secure, I would highly recommend Neale and Liz's apartment. It's very quiet and the pool and surrounding gardens are beautiful. You will need a car but personally I preferred being in the apartment than being stuck in a hotel resort. We didnt venture out in the evenings as it gets dark very quickly and the drivers are a bit dangerous, especially the yellow buses!
All in all, a great holiday and a fantastic apartment!
Thanks for a great stay

Vuemont is up the hill from Speightstown on the West Coast of Barbados. Just a short drive to the beach. We found the property so perfect we rarely needed a beach day. The four pools were usually empty, we were the only ones in the pool except for one day. The gym was well equipped. The security guards were wonderful the evening we arrived one showed us around, showing off the grounds and tennis courts with pride. This suite was comfortable and well appointed. There were more housewares and linens than we needed. Comfortable arm chairs on the deck and loungers were I could spend hours reading in the shade....and I did. A month was not long enough. We traversed the whole island exploring, and making friends. We were glad we had a car to get groceries, eat out, and see the sights. We had a wonderful time. We will return next year.
A wonderful 2 week stay in Barbados. The accomodation was exactly as described. It was very clean and fitted to a high specification. The resort was very quiet which meant that we were often the only people in one of the delightful pools.A perfect place to come back to at the end of the day. The resort was about a 5 minute drive from the coast and there was a supermarket only a couple of minutes away.
The owner, Neale, could not have been more helpful. My questions were always answered promptly and everything, including transfers and car hire, was put in place with the help of Neale before we left England.
During our stay we spent time on many of the wonderful beaches. both on the calm West side and enjoying the surf on the East side. I would recommend a trip on the catamaran 'Was not me' with Ron and his crew. We swam with turtles, snorkelled over a reef and ate lunch on board. We ate some gorgeous meals in some of the many restaurants within Speightstown and Holetown, including the Lone Star and Mangoes By the Sea.
I would strongly recommend this property to both friends and relatives wishing to stay in Barbados. As it provides a restful base away from the crowds. The hire of a car was straight forward and driving around Barbados was very easy.
We hope to return again soon!
Our trip started well with the friendly pick up from the airport provided by the owners' local representative. Vuemont is well named, it is on top of a hill with great views of the sea and the sunsets. The quiet well maintained development was a pleasant contrast to some of the other places we have stayed in Barbados where the traffic noise, the chickens and dogs were often disturbing.
The apartment was exactly as described and there was all we needed to cater for ourselves. The fish from the local markets is fantastic and so cheap compared to home. It would have been nice to have had a small table on the balcony to allow us to eat out in the tropical breezes overlooking the beautiful gardens. The balcony furniture was really comfortable and great for relaxing on when all you wanted to do was 'chill out'.
The local supermarket at the bottom of the hill provides all you need but the local vegetable shop on the way down the hill provides good value fresh veg and eggs. A car is essential as it is a long climb back up the hill, and you will need it to visit all the great beaches on the west coast.
It will be interesting to see how Vuemont develops when more of the accommodation is sold and in use. Hopefully we will be back next year.
Our self catering apartment in Barbados is situated on the Vuemont Residential complex which has 24 hour security via trained Security Guards. Our self catering apartment which has a panoramic sea view is within 50 meters of the large swimming pool & heated jacuzzi at Vuemont. Speightstown which is home to a brand new luxury marina development Port Ferdinand & Port St Charles is within about 2 miles of Vuemont.
There are excellent shops & restaurants in Speightstown, as well as an art gallery & some fine examples of original Barbados architecture. Speightstown is a seafront town, you can sit & have a drink & a meal watching the Caribbean sea lap up by your feet.
Barbados has some fantastic beaches and these gorgeous golden beaches for lazy long relaxing days are a very short drive away.
Mullins Beach is only a few minutes away, water sports, boat trips & beach bar are all available at Mullins Beach. Also St. Peter has some less well known beaches which are ideal to just swim, sit & relax, possibly having the whole beach to yourself
