About Janina Galler

I am a physician-scientist and have been conducting research studies in Barbados for many years. We live in Boston and also spend long periods of time in Barbados.

Janina Galler purchased this condo in 1985

Why Janina Galler chose St James

We watched this property being built and were among its earliest owners. The beautiful location and sea views, the expansive landscaped grounds (where our daughters chased pigeons) , the friendly staff and proximity to Bridgetown made this an ideal property for us. Our daughters named the apartment 'Golden Sunsets' because of the breathtaking golden, red and lilac sunsets that we celebrate daily during our visits to the island. We consider 'Golden Sunsets' our home and hope you will enjoy the premises as much as we do!

What makes this condo unique

Our apartment is very spacious and one of the largest units at Glitter Bay. The apartment is a Penthouse and has expansive ocean views from all balconies. Our views are among the best at Glitter Bay, because of the property location near the sea. Because the apartment layout, all three bedroom patios face the sea and have unencumbered views of the water, which is unusual. Most important, 'Golden Sunsets' is our home and provides the comforts of living in a modern home with all of the amenities of a special resort environment offered by The Glitter Bay Estate.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We just thought we would drop you a note to say we have had a wonderful holiday at Glitter Bay. Your condo is modern & fresh and furnished to a high standard. The terraces off each room offer amazing views and very much bigger than we expected.

We were welcomed by all the staff, Duncan, Rocky on the beach along with Allan & Tyrell & Scully behind the bar. Dave the driver was great and always available when we needed a ride.

We have arrived home relaxed and refreshed - our girls were upset to leave and so always a sign of an amazing holiday, we all hope to return next year.

Thank you for letting us rent your holiday home & we don’t mind saying we are jealous that you have such a beautiful second home!

Best Vacation Ever

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 spent spent 2 weeks at Golden Sunsets, and we are already looking forward to our return visit. My kids loved the beach right at your doorsetp, the large double pool (with a separate pool for the little ones) and the new huge tv/dvd. My husband and I enjoyed the beautiful setting, the spacious and tastefully appointed apartment, the quiet dinners on our balcony at sunset, and the great staff. This was a magical vacation

Well worth the Visit: immaculate, private, secure, peaceful, quiet; and friendly, helpful staff.

  • 5 of 5

This was a third year in Golden Sunsets, 304 Glitter Bay. Lashell, Dave, Andre and all the staff are becoming more like family; so supportive and kind. We cannot say enough about Janina Galler and the effort she makes to assure trip planning from arrival, through the stay, and departure are without issue. Not sure how best to say thanks to Janina and those on site who assist her but results speak for themselves. It was happy for us; another wonderful stay for the family!

Excellent clean family accommodation

  • 5 of 5

A repeat visit for our family. Apartment is roomy on two floors with sea views from the balcony. Two kids can enjoy safe surroundings with large pool and private beach. Restaurants aplenty just a walk away down the beach. I cannot think of a better location we loved it and will certainly return
