Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Pat

We have all had a fantastic holiday and really enjoyed staying in your fabulous apartment!

We loved that it was so spotlessly clean, comfortable and so well equipped, I can honestly not think of one single thing that would make it any more perfect!

We hope to return again soon and would not hesitate to recommend to all our friends.

We fly home tomorrow, We are currently in a sea front apartment just up the road from yours in Mullins Bay, sadly the apartment does not live up to your standards in the cleanliness department! On arrival I spent the first couple of hours cleaning the kitchen! Luckily though the location is fabulous and we are enjoying the outside space and snorkelling. There is a restaurant next door called Bombas that serves the most amazing fish, curries and chicken pesto linguine, we have ate there a lot!! We met and chatted to Cliff Richard in there last night so that made my holiday :)

Thank you for letting us stay in your wonderful apartment :)

Kind regards

Exactly as pictured and described! Great relaxing family time.

  • 5 of 5

My family of four including a 16 yr. old and a 3 yr. old really enjoyed this property. This was our first time visiting Barbados and staying in a property rather than a hotel. After this experience I'm not sure when I'll do a hotel again. This is the way to go and I'm so glad this first time was so great. There was enough space for us to enjoy, relax, and spread out a bit. The outdoor area and view can't be beat. We didn't rent a car but we enjoyed the adventure of catching the bus to a few places. And of course the beach was amazing. I could definitely return - hopefully sooner rather than later.

Just had a ten night stay in"Gone to the beach" very quiet and restful location, lovely views from the sun terrace with a lovely plunge pool perfect for warm evenings when returning from a hard day on the beach .

Apartment very well equipped, lovely beach at the bottom of the road , reeds bay , sun beds available for hire , john moores bar great meeting place , regular buses to get around , a visit to the " outback " very good food and about a ten minute walk from the apartment, Mullins on Sunday evening well worth a visit , live music . A lovely holiday .

Stunning apartment. Home from home

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for a month and it has been absolutely brilliant. The apartment has everything that you could ever wish for and more. Rachael the manager is very helpful and Kimberly the cleaner who comes twice a week is a very bubbly efficient person. Pat who owns the property makes sure your every need is attended to right through to a car and airport collection and delivery by Lloyd or of course you could sort it out yourself if you wanted.

A very relaxing place to stay & to chill out.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is very well equiped & very comfortable.The plunge pool on the terrace was very welcoming after a hot day. The details of the property described on the website are very accurate. The owner (Pat) was very helpful with any enquiry we made & the house manager Rachel who met us on arrival was also very helpful. We do hope we will visit Barbados again & stay at "Gone to the beach". It really is the perfect place to relax & to chill out.Thank you Pat.
