About Diana Carter

I grew up in Cardiff,Wales but left in the 70's to teach in the West Indies. I taught in St.Gabriels Private Primary School in Barbados for 21 years. I do know this island paradise very well and had an amazing life but when I retired I came back to live in Winchester UK. I have 3 wonderful sons and 2 still live in Trinidad while my youngest son settled back in Southampton UK. I travel regularly back to the island to visit with my Grandchildren and stay for some peaceful weeks in my studio apartment in Rockley. The picture is my partner and myself in Barbados for my sons wedding in 2010. From the backdrop behind you can see just what an fantastic place this can be for a wedding!!!!!!

Diana Carter purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Diana Carter chose Christ Church

If you are a golfer this is perfect for you. Imagine waking up at 6am and walking a few yards to the first tee just below your patio. It is cool at this time and you can see the monkeys and the ground doves and all the great tropical flowers all around you. If you are a sun worshiper a few yards across the fairway and you reach one of the 5 pools you can use on the Resort and by car 4 mins to reach the local beach. The colour of the sea is an amazing blue and the turtles in the lagoon off the Carib Beach bar are swimming next to you in the crystal clear water.

What makes this apartment unique

Rockley Resort is beautifully maintained and very quiet and peaceful. I love just opening my patio doors first thing in the morning and just thanking God that I am alive to appreciate all the colours and scents of this tropical paradise.

Pleasantly Surprised.

  • 5 of 5

I was really nervous about booking a property through one of these sites. Ms. Carter was extremely professional and responded with expediency to inquiries. The property is on a well maintained golf course and within 10 minutes walking to the beach and supermarket. 15-20 minutes walk (stroll) to restaurants and local shops. Really close to the GAP, Bridgetown, Oistins. The room was very clean/well equipped and the staff/management very nice. The restaurant on the premises was very good when I did not feel like cooking. My husband and I had a really nice time! I would recommend this property to potential renters.

We have just arrived back from a wonderful 4week stay in this studio and we loved it! It is the perfect place to chill out. We are regular visitors to beautiful Barbados and have stayed in various accommodation and areas but after a day on the beach we are quite happy to relax and cook our own dinner. The local supermarket which you pass on the way to the beach sells everything including really good meat and veg.

There are many resons we would recommend 120 friendship. Nicely furnished and decorated. The balcony furniture is very comfortable ( great high backed chairs, no plastic) good size, comfortable beds. Excellent Wi-Fi. AND a slow cooker!! What a thoughtful addition. Everything you need in the kitchen, and of course the BBQ.

Would love to go back next year but it's already booked!!

Super relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

Arriving tired and jaded from a long flight this apartment was a delight. Immaculately clean, fresh, and inviting. Just the right size for relaxing for a three week stay. Lovely waking in the morning to watch golfers teeing off, and lazing on the patio with. A rum punch at sundown. Early morning wandering down to the beach to swim with turtles. I made good use of the pools as well. The Rockley Resort ambience is peaceful, and the apartments are placed so that you feel completely private. I loved my stay here and will definitely return.

Stayed at this apartment as a young female for 2 months and it always felt very safe. Everything in the apartment was working and the internet was fast! The maintenance people that word around the golf course are also friendly which is nice. Short walk to the supermarket and bus stop so was really easy without a car. Really lovely to have the pools there for when you're not quite sure what the weather is going to do and I was usually the only person at them so very peaceful! Would love to stay again x

Friendship 120 Condo Nicely Updated

  • 4 of 5

This property was nicely updated. We had some issues upon our arrival with the toilet not working and an invasion of ants. These issues were dealt with promptly by the Lorraine, the property Manager who was assigned to us. During our 9 week stay, we always put open bags of food, spices etc in plastic bags to deter the ants. This unit has a large patio and we ate all our meals out there, watching the golfers pass by. We would recommend this condo for your vacation.

Owner's Response: Hi Jackie & Jim, I am so glad you enjoyed your 2 months stay in my apartment in Rockley Resort, Barbados. I was so sorry to hear that the plumbing gave some problems on your arrival but hope you enjoyed the complimentary bottle of wine that Lorraine delivered on my behalf. Yes the ants are very small sugar ants that can detect a grain of sugar from a vast distance and then you get a trail coming into the kitchen. This happens all over the tropics and you just have to be vigilant in the kitchen- mop up anything sugary. I do hope you will come and stay in my apartment again and I will make sure you again receive a substantial discount. And Jackie my thoughts will be with you when you go for your surgery later this year. Regards Diana

Wonderful and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

I have had a wonderful, relaxing holiday in this lovely studio apartment. It has been so central for all my needs and the apartment itself was clean and fresh and so comfy, especially the beds! It had everything I needed and I was able to cook on the stove or in the microwave if I wanted a night in. I hope to return again and will certainly recommend it to my friends.
