Hi. I'm too shy to say much about myself other than to say I love the island of Barbados and hope you will too!
Janie purchased this Apartment in 2007
Why Janie chose Clermont
We had the opportunity to take a short holiday in Barbados and stayed at this apartment at Crystal Court. We think the island is magical and fell in love with the apartment - so much so we bought it! We called the apartment Fimbar to highlight our roots in the seaside village in the UK where St.Fimbarrus was patron saint. It also helps with the fimbarbados website name! The apartment is centrally located just a short distance from the platinum west coast so everywhere on the island is within easy reach.
What makes this Apartment unique
The apartment is tranquil and secure and is set in well-maintained grounds with local flora and fauna. It is peaceful and away from crowds but also close enough to the nightlife and busier locations for those days and nights out. We have invested in new furniture throughout the apartment. We stay as often as we can and maintain the apartment to a very high standard. Our aim is to provide a home from home for our guests where they can relax and feel valued. We know our guests will thoroughly enjoy their stay and many come back time and again for more!

Happy Returning Customers
This was our 3rd time staying in this lovely apartment I’m so glad we found it.
We just love coming here and our last day is always the hardest as the kids never want to leave.
Everyone we have met in the complex were friendly and very welcoming.
Thank you Janie and Andy, Fimbar truly is a home away from home.
Many thanks Ayan for your review. It is always a pleasure having you back and we're delighted you find our apartment a 'home from home'. There can be no better feedback than repeat visits. Kind regards. Janie and Andy
Home Away From Home
This place had everything we needed, we stayed for 8 nights our 3rd time in Barbados first time in this apartment. The swimming pool is very nice the children loved it. It's quiet safe, relaxing and very clean. The people of Barbados are very friendly and always ready to help anyone. A car is a must especially if you are staying here. We hired a car to ago around the island loved Carsile bay, Brown beach and Miami Beach.
Thank you for your review. We’re delighted you enjoyed your stay.
The apartment is lovely and in a great location!
We enjoyed our stay and would definitely book again. Well worth the money we paid! Communication with Janie was excellent before, during and after our stay. The apartment is clean, we presented with all the facilities needed for a relaxing stay in Barbados. Thanks
Thank you Marcia for your feedback. We're delighted you enjoyed our home from home. You were exceptional guests and we'd love to see you back.
Our second stay here and it was just as good as the first time, Andy and Janie are always on hand if you need anything, had the pool and tennis court to ourselves again, got our food from one of the many carribean food vans which is lush and a lot better value than restaurants - cost £7.50p per meal situated by the bank in Holetown between 12:00-15:00. Supermarket is only 2 miles away and so are fast food restaurants too. You’ll be better off hiring a car for beaches as there’s loads on the West Coast. The appartment has a brilliant and fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher, laundry area with an American style washing machine, great air con, two large bedrooms and balcony to front. Open every window and external doors then the carribean breeze flows through nicely. I love this place and my only regret is that I didn’t buy one when they were being built. We’re a family of five and we lived comfortably here for two weeks. Thanks to Andy and Janie for making our holiday for us and our children, we’ll be back next year for sure.
Very many thanks for taking the time to review our apartment. We are always keen to hear feedback to ensure we can maintain our high standards and provide the very best holiday experience for our guests.
There is no better tribute than having guests return again but it is important that any such return provides at least the same positive experience and we are delighted the apartment still met your expectations on your second stay with us.
For us as owners it is a delight when we have guests as wonderful as yourselves who treat the apartment like their own home and embrace the Bajan way. For any other owners we thoroughly recommend Terry and his family as exceptional guests.
Thank you again Terry and we'd love to have you back next year.

Good safe place for family's clean good pool needs some up keep looks like they are planning on fixing it soon there is no BBQ in the property so no grilling anywhere no wifi in the unit it's only in the club house if you need to use it also not cable tv but plenty of dvds to watch but only in the living room the second bedroom tv DVD player does. It work there is only one shower second bath is just a toilet and small sink the car we used could use a lot of work passenger rear door is missing handle so had to always open it from the inside seat belts don't fasten great AC works good when we r driving otherwise it's just warm could also use a wash inside or some air fresheners brakes could use some work also overall the price was ok comparing to some other units there had met a couple there that asked me what I paid and they were very surprised that I had paid that much I thought it was fair with car included so this is my 5th time to the island and I always rent homes this if the first time renting a appt style home don't think I will again after renting a home but it is a good location just a little further up from everything ..
Thank you for taking the time and effort to post a review. This is very much appreciated.
We would like to thank you for the positive comments and we are glad you enjoyed your stay.
If we may, we'd like to respond to the constructive advice you left? Firstly, BBQs: We did consider having a BBQ for guests to use, however, they are not appropriate for the apartment as the only location for its' use is to place it on the balcony and the fire risk is too great. Secondly, the TVs are not connected to cable or satellite and are only advertised as DVD players and we keep a stock of these at the apartment. We will consider cable in the future but this is not cost effective at present. Thirdly, Wifi: We do have a contract with FLOW for high speed wifi within the apartment but there was a fault on the system which is being addressed with FLOW Barbados as we speak. We apologise that the signal was not as you hoped. Finally, car and cost: our car is a much cherished personal car and is not new. Therefore the option for this includes a significant discount over hire car prices to reflect the fact that you are driving an older car. It is fully insured with our comprehensive policy and the price is further reduced to match the cost of taxis to/from the airport and for permits, as necessary. We believe this makes the car extremely good value when compared to the costs associated with hiring a car from a hire company. Please bear in mind that we feel the apartment is fairly priced and when the car is added to the apartment rental costs a comparison with other apartment rental prices can only be made when the cost of the car is removed.
We sincerely hope this has addressed your feedback and suggestions.
We thank you again for both your custom and for your comments.

The beautiful platinum west coast beaches with white powdery sand aynd calm seas are just a 5 min drive away. Here it is possible to snorkel with turtles and enjoy the reefs from the beach although numerous companies provide catamaran excursions. The south coast sandy beaches which have more waves are a 30 min drive. The east coast Atlantic beaches are a 20 minute drive but these are for experienced surfers only.
Grantley Adams International Airport is a 25-30 min drive. Whilst it is possible to travel relatively easily around the island the owners consider a car to be essential to enjoy fully the beauty of Barbados.
Supermarkets and shopping is 3 mins by car with restaurants and additional shopping just 5 mins away. Bridgetown is a 20 min drive. All parts of the island and its attractions are easily accessible in just a short time.
Diving is available from a number of locations with excellent dive sites and warm clear Caribbean waters.
