We had a great time

  • 5 of 5

The location is perfect with 2 beaches very close and lots of places to eat within a mile or two. Speightstown is lively - especially the Little Bristol Bar on the waterfront which is great. We loved the yellow buses with music blaring.

The pool apartment is comfortable and well maintained by Claudett who is very friendly. Nice to see monkeys helping themselves to mangos in the garden. The information provided by the owners was excellent and we enjoyed several of the suggested eating places. JuJus is great and we had a special meal at Cariba. Hope to stay longer next time. Pippa

Excellent Stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time in Barbados and loved our stay at the Pool Apartment - it was excellent value for money. As other reviewers have said it has a rustic charm and definitely grows on you the longer you stay - we were there for 2 weeks. The owners were really helpful and the information provided prior to our stay was invaluable .... we tried a lot of restaurants on the list and couldn't fault any of them. The location was excellent and its very easy to get around on the buses which stop at the bottom of the road. Would definitely recommend it to others.

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

This place was ideal, private, beautifully landscaped, fully equipped in a beautiful location near to local restaurants, and the exclusive feeling Gibbs beach. Simon, the owner, and Sarah provided really useful and spot on information about the best places to eat and go. They even had our groceries bought beforehand and had a taxi pick us up with our keys from a 3am flight. Couldn't have asked for better owners. Can't wait to come back again. Fantastic value for me and my three 11 year olds staying in the pool house. Thanks so much!

Brilliant time relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We had a brilliant time in the Pool Apartment. Just the two of us this time enjoying the gardens, early morning swims on the beach and exploring more of this beautiful island. JuJu's was our favourite eating place the fresh yellow fin tuna is superb. We also loved the band playing at Mullins Beach - great music.

It was nice to see Andrew again and meet the new housekeeper Oneta who is very nice and hard working. We visited Bathsheba and Crane beach on the East coast - gosh it is very different from the West.

Thanks very much - Karen

lovely garden, shabby interior

  • 3 of 5

We spent the whole of January here and had a really lovely holiday. the garden and pool area are beautiful but inside the pool apartment it is very shabby, The pictures posted on this site do not reflect the reality of the apartment. The cleaner was not very through. The electrical equipment is old and the oven was not reliable. The toilet had issues with the flushing system which the caretaker tried to resolve with little success. All of the public toilets I visited were far cleaner than the toilet in the apparment.

It is further to the beach than suggested but still very walkable.

Owner's Response: We were rather surprised by this review because when we contacted the guests to return their deposit everything seemed fine as their email below shows. -----Original Message----- From: Roger xxxxxx Sent: 03 February 2016 12:57 To: Sarah Hi Sarah, Yes we enjoyed Barbados very much. Coming home, we are faced with such a big change in temperature though! Bank details as requested:- A/c xxxxxxxx Thank you Roger --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Clearly there was a problem with the cleaning. It is a real pity we were not contacted during the 4 week stay because we could have sorted all these things out very quickly. We actually changed the maiding arrangements for the Pool Apartment last month before we got the review. And the non performing maid will be leaving us next week.The oven problem was sorted out by our Supervisor at the time and a new oven is being installed in early April. We do ask all guests to contact us if anything is not to their satisfaction so that we can put things right and they can get on with enjoying their holiday. From now on we are going to ring guests after they have arrived to check all is well. Thank you for the review but next time please let the owners know if something is not right :)

A Little Bit of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the Pool Apartment for the second time in three years and were not disappointed coming back.

An ideal location five minutes’ walk from the beautiful Mullins Beach and only 15 minutes from several busy towns, set in tranquil, well maintained gardens. From the moment you arrive you will relax with the hardest decisions being whether to eat in or go out.

The Pool Apartment is maintained to a high standard, well equipped and very clean, being regularly cleaned during our stay. The owners work hard to ensure your stay is as enjoyable and relaxing as it can be and can always be reached with regard to any queries. The staff at the Villa are also always available to assist.

In summary – perfect!
