Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Bridgetown - 634 Bushy Park Rockley

One bedroom FULLY air conditioned apartment.

Fully furnished self catering apartment overlooking the 4th hole of Rockley Golf and Country Club. This beautiful recently refurbished apartment can sleep 4 people, 2 in an air conditioned bedroom with a King size double bed which can be split into 2 single beds, and 2 on a queen size sofa bed in the air conditioned lounge.

The fully equiped kitchen comprises a large oven, microwave, full sized fridge-freezer, toaster & blender and all necessary utensils. The bathroom includes a jacuzzi bath and shower over. The property features two balconies a large covered one looking over the swimming pool and a smaller one lookig over the 4th hole of the golf course. Located in 70 acres of breathtaking tropical surroundings, available all year, the apartment is ideal for a relaxing self catering Caribbean holiday and also perfect for the golfer or tennis player, whilst being close enough to all of the amenities that both St. Lawrence Gap and Bridgetown have to offer.


Have a look at this photo show: Air Conditioning: Please note that this property is FULLY AIR CONDITIONED not just in the bedroom as most other similar properties are, this makes a big difference in the evenings as the lounge and dining areas are a cool and comfortable place to sit and relax after a hot day at the beach. Also if being used as a second bedroom it is far more comfortable.

About Nick & Debbie Siminson

We are Nick & Debbie Siminson. We are married & have been living in Kent since 1985.During this time we have enjoyed many holidays all over the world helped in the main by Debbie's involvement in the Travel Industry for most of her working life, but more recently as a lecturer in Travel & Tourism. Nick has spent most of his working life in the Marine Insurance Industry in London, but was lucky enough to retire in 2008.

Nick & Debbie Siminson purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Nick & Debbie Siminson chose St. Michael

We first visited Barbados in 1988 and actually stayed here at Rockley when it was an all inclusive hotel called 'Club Rockley'. We returned to Barbados many times since then staying in various hotels and apartments on the Island, but were always drawn back to Rockley. After talking about buying a property in Barbados for many years, it was during our Christmas holiday in 2007 that we finally plucked up the courage to make an offer on this apartment. We have never looked back!

What makes this apartment unique

Over the years we have stayed, as holiday makers, in most 'clusters' and in most styles of property. We truly believe that Bushy Park is the most pretty of the clusters, and we were overjoyed to find this property which had everything we were looking for. Being upstairs and having 2 wonderful balconies which extend the living space, and its position in the corner allows a beautiful cool breeze to drift through the apartment even on the hottest of days, in our view making 634 Bushy Park unique.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our holiday in 634 Bushy Park at Rockley Golf and Country Club was exceptional in every respect. The apartment is fresh, clean, well furnished and with very good air conditioning throughout - a must!! It is within a few paces of an excellent, very quiet communal pool and of course only ten minutes walk away from the superb Accra Beach and Rockley with all its facilities. The apartment garden surrounds are maintained in first class condition adjacent to plenty of parking spaces. The icing though was the fact that membership for one person at Rockley Golf Club is included with the cost, which made golf for my wife and I, plus a buggy, the best value golf abroad, we have ever known. On our return to UK, we immediately booked for a month in 2014 !"

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Where to start, to walk into an oasis from the gorgeous heat would be a start. Everything and anything you need are at your fingertips. Fresh towels and linen available. A wonderful lady that comes twice a week to keep the apartment spick and span. All you need for a self catering holiday is there. You have all the amenities you need too, laundry, swimming pool, bar, restuarant all only metres away.And the wildlife is amazing, monkeys with your morning coffee froliking on the golf course and a seranade to die for at night from the local frogs. Only a short walk and you are at the supermarket, which has a taxi service to take you back to the apartment. Taxi services on the premises, call and within 5 minutes you are being picked up. 15 minutes to the beach and a short ride on the bus and your in Bridgetown. The ladies in the office (also on site) are so helpful any queries/problems they drop everything to assist.

Having dealt with Nick and Debbie I don't believe I would deal or stay any place else. Barbados is the most beautiful place I have ever been. I found peace for my soul there. Thank you Nick and Debbie and hopefully this will become a long standing relationship as I am planning on going to Barbados wherever I can.

Owner's Response: Hi Lovebarbados, we are so glad you had a wonderful holiday, one of the reasons we brought this apartment was for its location and it sounds like you made use of all the local facilities it has to offer, and we are pleased that our local agents are still providing a first class service. We hope you return soon. Best wishes Nick and Debbie.

A fabulous apartment

  • 5 of 5

Great apartment for rent in what, I think, is the nicest "cluster" on Rockley Resort. This one bedroomed apartment is superbly equipped, right down to beach chairs and a "noodle" for relaxing in the gorgeous, warm Caribbean sea. There are two outside areas, one looks over the golf course and the other the pool and garden area. There are even books, games and DVDs supplied by the owners to keep you amused if you don't want to go out. Nick and Debbie have thought of everything that makes a holiday apartment comfortable and a real "home from home".

Owner's Response: Thank you for your wonderful review, we are so pleased to hear you had a great time staying in our apartment. We also think that Bushy Park is the best cluster in the resort and we try very hard to fill the apartment with everything you should need to enjoy your stay. Debbie and I both hope you will return again and remember we offer a discount to our many returning guests. Best wishes, Nick and Debbie.

Lovely, relaxing apartment

  • 5 of 5

As one can see, the Siminson's apartment has been given great reviews and they are well deserved. My husband and I have been travelling to Barbados since 1988 and have always vacationed at Club Rockley and we were finally able to rent the Siminson's lovely apartment. Their apartment is ideally situated on the south coast of Barbados. One can walk a short distance to the beach and many eating establishments.

Debbie and Nick's apartment is one of the more popular ones at Rockley and is already booked into 2016! Debbie and Nick have put total thought in providing every comfort for their guests. Their apartment is tastefully decorated and every guest's need is met. The apartment is fully equipped in every way. As it is an upper apartment, there is the added feature of having a furnished front and back balcony providing total relaxation.

We cannot wait to spend another holiday in this apartment. If you prefer this type of accommodation, we highly recommend renting the Siminson's apartment.

Thank you Debbie and Nick for making our 25th wedding anniversary even more special.

Superb retreat

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a balance between being close to local amenities/routes and in a green quiet spot to chill - exactly what we hoped for.

Nick and Debbie were a real mine of time and money-saving information and all the arrangements ran smoothly from booking to vacating the apartment.

The accommodation itself is very spacious and creatively planned with all you could wish for - access to a laundry and an onsite taxi driver Bajan Tours were really useful bonuses.

Pool area was metres away and never busy but we used the the bus service plus taxis to explore the islands beaches mainly.

The detail of the property has been well- documented by other reviewers already so suffice to say you will not be disappointed !

Must do trips are the Concorde ExhibItion and Bathsheba by bus via Bridgetown.

Will undoubtedly be back soon to this gem thanks again Nick.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review for us, we are so pleased to hear you had a wonderful time. We must add the local taxi you used to our list of numbers. In all our years of going to Barbados we have never done the Concorde Exhibition so we will definately be doing that on our next trip. We look forward to hearing from you in the future and remember we offer a discount to our many returning guests. Best wishes, Nick and Debbie.

A lovely bright and breezy gem, ideally situated.

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Rockley Gol & Country Club before and this was our first ime at Nick and Debbie's apartment. I am so pleased we made this choice as it was a lovely and bright .apartment and very comfortable. It was also perfectly situated with lovely views of the golf course from the front balcony and we whiled away our evenings with a nice cool glass of something on the swinging sette, just watching the late golfers and trying to catch that lovely 'pinky' sky that heralds the end of the day - bliss. There was also a very large shaded balcony at the apartment's entrance which provided many seating areas and tables for dining outdoors.

There were many extras provided within the apartment, cool box, beach mat, beach chairs and towels, lots of games and DVD's etc. A lot of the items provided were carefully thought out, most practical and saved luggage space. The bed was very comfortable and there was plenty of space in wardrobes and drawers. All of the furnishings were bright and tasteful.

My husband enjoyed the free golf and the lovely pool was just a matter of a few yards away - what more could one ask for? The shops, bars and restaurants are within walking distance and the large local supermarket (a Waitrose franchise) provides a free shuttle bus service for customers so there are no heavy loads to carry should you not have a hire car.

Our favourite beach (Worthing) is easily reached by foot and is one of many beaches in the area. The buses in Barbados are brilliant, frequent and so ridiculously cheap it is almost embarrassing to just pay a couple of dollars to travel - they are well worth experiencing. I just love those ZR Taxis that stop anywhere and belt out their Reggae music - they are a hoot!

Nick was very helpful and courteous during our booking and any subsequent contact and his managing agents were alsovery helpful and efficient.

We really enjoyed our 3 week stay and regret not booking for a further week. We would not hesitate to return to this lovely apartment and I only hope that when we decide to return, that it will be available.

Sandra and Terry, Sidcup, Kent.

Enjoyable Stay

  • 4 of 5

had a lovely time at 634 and would definitely recommend you considering it as a base for your holiday in Barbados.

Booking was a breeze. Although you deal mainly with the agent, Nick and Debbie are involved the whole way though and give you a very friendly and personable service. I loved the top tips even though I am a frequent visitor to the island!

Location is great. Quiet and safe which was important to me as single female traveller. The supermarket and beach etc were all within walking distance and if you want to go further then you can pick up the public transport easily. This part of the south coast in my opinion is one of the nicest places to stay on the island.

Facilities were good too. I never had a chance to get in the pool but it looked lovely and was almost always empty. The laundry room was useful, free tokens were provided for use, so perfect for freshening up your favourite items. Kitchen was well stocked, I managed to self cater for pretty much the whole 2 weeks without needing anything additional.

The apartment was very comfortable and in good condition. The back balcony with the swinging chair was a lovely place to sit and look out onto the golf course or watch the monkeys.

You get good support from the management team. They are not at all intrusive but they do check to make sure things are ok via telephone and also their office is very close by.

I would recommend this apartment to my family and friends and I will be returning as soon as I can find some availability!
