Walk into Speightstown on a bustling Saturday morning, and see Caribbean colour and life all around you, local ladies selling exotic fruit and vegetables, fresh fish from the days catch at the market.
Many great days out can be had from this area., there is something for everyone.
Barbados offers many options, when you have tired of the beautiful beaches and restaurants, there are many more things to occupy your time.
For sports enthusiasts a trip to the Saturday afternoon races at the Garrison is always popular, perhaps a game of cricket is more your scene at the wonderful Kensington Oval where the atmosphere is always electric! Polo matches are held frequently at many of the clubs around the island. Take a drive over to the wild East Coast and visit beautiful Bathsheba, where you can sit on the rocks and watch the surfers, or even join in, but not for amateurs :)
There are several surf schools around the island where you can take lessons and hire boards.
Nature is in all it's glory wherever you travel around this beautiful Caribbean island.
See the sugar plantations, the fresh green bananas ripe for the picking, the majestic mahogany trees, all manner of tropical fruits. Visit the Animal Flower Cave, , see the local green monkeys scampering past, and on a moonlit night you may witness a turtle laying it's eggs on the beach directly infront of the property. This is quite a common occurrence at certain times of the year, and something you will remember for always.
Speightstown has a main bus terminal, which is a two minute walk from the rear of the building (no noise tho!) here you can take a bus to every corner of the island, all fares are 2$ bds. no matter how far you travel. There are several types of buses, government and private. You have to be brave and take a trip on yellow " reggae bus" an experience you won't forget or regret !
If you wish to hire a car, driving around the island is easy, and for those of from the UK no need to change sides. I can help arrange a hire car at competitive rates should you wish. Taxis are easily available and reasonably priced, there is a local taxi rank close to the property, and you can call one from the land line inside the apartment. The choice is yours, a car is not necessary, and if you wish to do an island tour, that can also be arranged with any local taxi driver. I can also arrange airport pick up and drop off should you wish.
I spend around 5 months a year in Barbados, so depending on your time of visiting, depends on whether or not I will be on the island.
My wonderfully efficient housekeeper, Marva who handles check in etc., will be on hand should you so require.
If you wish daily housekeeping that can also be arranged directly with Marva, some people prefer their privacy others not, it's a flexible option.
I am always contactable via email or phone/what's app etc.
I am always happy to help with any questions or requests you may have either before or during your stay. I want that my guests are happy and that they enjoy their stay to the max.
I spent many months looking for the ideal property in Barbados, after visiting the island for more than thirty years it was not an easy decision!!
Speightstown won on many counts, it is quite possibly one of the most original authentic Caribbean towns still in existence. It was at one time know as "Little Bristol" due to it being the main port of call for trade boats calling into port from England, collecting spices and sugar. Here you are able to have as activity packed or as relaxing a vacation as you wish., the choices are all there. There are many bars and restaurants within a short walking distance, and should you wish to go further afield, the restaurants and bars of Holetown are a 10 minute drive away. The building is secure with gated entrance and parking, and is still tranquil yet within walking distance from all. I LOVE it !!!
I have had my property for almost 9 years now, and have been renting out successfully through other sites. I'm looking forward to gaining many more repeat guests through the VROB network.
Choose Barbados for it's wonderful culture, it's beautiful beaches and landscape, and for it's warm and welcoming people, you won't be disappointed !!!
