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 promised

  • 5 of 5

So RELAXING. The plunge pool, the view. COMFORT, COMFORT. All the touches of your own home. Minutes away from the beach, John Moore bar, the fish market and veggie and fruit market. Quiet luxury and of course the fabulous hospitality of the Bajan people. Do I have to go home?

Great location, fantastic, friendly people! Beaches and flowers are beyond beautiful. We met many helpful and interesting Barbadons. We definitely would return. Gone to the beach has everything you need and it's very charming.

Nine days and nights well spent

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is well furnished and equipped. Attention to details like rain and beach umbrellas, plentiful beach towels, lots of fans, and a well equipped kitchen showed us an experienced owner. The mornings began with roosters crowing, sounding like a group chat, followed by a walk past the monkeys in the trees in the nearby forest. Rent a car, like we did, and you can explore both the east and west coasts, amazingly different, with a variety of things to see and do between them. You won't want for activity.

There is a road next to the building but the traffic is almost exclusive to daytime hours, when you should be enjoying the island. The beach is under a quarter mile down a gradual slope and quite nice with more depth of sand than most others we went to see. There are even two folding beach chairs in the apartment - really nice touch.

We would highly recommend this place for those interested in a quiet base from which to see and experience a lovely island, away from most traffic yet minutes from Holetown and all the shopping you could ask for.

Wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Four of us stayed in this lovely apartment including our 9 year old grandson. He absolutely loved the plunge pool and the free Wifi when he was not busy at the beach! We found the abundance of beach towels a real bonus! The view from the apartment is stunning - you need to go to experience it! The apartment is SO comfortable and tastefully decorated - I can't say more than just couldn't have been better. Pat's team there are excellent - we were so well looked after by Pat before we went and then Rachel and team once we arrived. We mostly used the local beach as it is beautiful, just down the road and not commercialised. The Massey supermarket in Holetown is very good - Fresh produce excellent and even some Waitrose items! As we had a youngster with us we tended to eat in at the end of busy beach days and everything is there to make cooking so easy. A real home from home.

If you are considering renting this apartment then in my opinion you couldn't do better!

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Very well furnished apartment, Pat is very helpful and easy to deal with, having maid service included twice a week by Kim was great, Rachel the manager was very helpful, nice safe bathing beach at the bottom of the road. A short hop to Mullins bar a must on Sunday afternoon and Bombas bar / restaurant great food and atmosphere. Weston fish market just down the road fresh fish straight off the boats and so reasonable, try the Mahi Mahi. Thank you Pat.

The apartment was perfect .. and the staff were amazing .

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was all we expected and more. Very clean and well maintained. Close to the beach and the main roads for easy transportation.. The owner was really helpful with car hire and all other questions or needs we had . She made us really comfortable renting from her and was in constant contact which was very reassuring . We were met at the apartment and given a tour and asked if we needed anything by the house manager . I would most definitely recommend this property and others owned to any of my family and friends travelling to Barbados.
