Booked 1 & 3 bedroom apartments We were picked up from the airport as arranged prior with Don for a family of eight and was met promptly.
The appartment is situated in a nice quite residential area
On arrival we were met by Don who was very pleasant. We found the apartments to be cleaned and comfortable. We stayed in the one bedroom, had breakfast on the balcony every morning and enjoyed the views of the gardens and surrounded area, seeing the monkeys passing by most mornings was a nice touch. The apartment was nice and cooled as we could have the doors open and enjoyed the cool breeze so there was no need to use the AC which Don kindly provided coins for.
The beach is just a very short walk away and was ideal for the grand children.
We also hired a vehicle from Don to get around further afield the island, however local buses are a short walk away to Speighstown, Hometown, Limegrove shopping Centre and Bridgetown at $2 a ride pp.
Do venture around the area there is a local shop on 3rd avenue try the Outback bar and grill restaurant just 5 minutes walk from the appartment.
The three bedroom is spacious with a lovely balcony to relax in the cool breeze any time of the day or night, the area was safe for the grandchildren to play.
Don and Diane was very helpful with any questions or advise and always available with no fuss.
I would recommend to family and friends an ideal location and good spacious appartments clean and very friendly atmosphere.
Thanks Don and Diane had a very enjoyable stress free holiday.
Thank you for choosing donapartment and you and your family is welcome to come again
My boyfriend & myself booked a 1 bedroom apartment for 7 days in January.
On arrival don was warm & hospitable & showed us to our apartment.
Everything we could have needed was in the apartment & all of a good standard.
The location is ideal for those wanting a peaceful getaway on the west coast.
There is a beautiful beach about a 3 minute walk & it is easy to get to Holetown (where we ate every night)
We didn't have a hire car so we used the local busses which are so regular it isn't an issue, and at 60p one way it's not a great expense. Holetown is around a 10 minute bus trip & Mullins beach is a 15 minute walk.
We ventured into speightstown one evening, but with everywhere being closed & run down I wouldn't recommend it!
The apartment was a great size and was lovely & cool over night. Don provides coins for the air con although with the ceiling fan & breeze thru the windows it wasn't always needed.
I holiday to barbados regularly & would definitely stay here again. Don & his wife are wonderful & friendly hosts & it was a pleasure to have met them.
Thank you for your comments and for your rating ,looking forward to see you again.
Upscale with a Caribbean flair
Well, nothing but a perfect vacation!!!! I visit Barbados every year to visit my sons, after there mother died of breast cancer, they rarely travel to the US to visit me. I was recommended to Dons apartments by my close friend of 20 years that live on the island. I spoke to Don from Los Angeles and made travel plans. We arrived late, but was welcomed by Don at 12 midnight with keys and a super huge one bedroom apartment. It was a nice start to our vacation!!!! rental car was already in the drive way! "bonus" walking distance to the beach "bonus +" for my departure my best friend took me to the airport with my rental car and returned it to the apartments. The reason I am writing this review is because I am in the "hospitality" industry, and is currently a General Manager for a 'Marriott" hotel which expects nothing but the best. It was actually nice to enjoy an environment where you can enjoy what you preach......I have already made reservations for next year, and will NEVER stay anywhere else
Response to review:Dwight,Thank you for your wonderful Comments and I'm humble, because i did not even requested it, also i am honored to receive such compliments from someone in your position,I'm Looking forward to see you again soon.
