About Carol Harewood

We refurbished the original chattel house, that my husband's mother and sister had lived in, in 2008. It took 3 months of hard work and the current house is the end result.

We have tried to keep the original look on the outside whilst making it modern and comfortable on the inside so our guests will enjoy it.

We like Speightstown very much. As well as its incredible history and charming architecture, my husband Wayne was born there and stayed until he was 9 years old, when he then went to England to be with his parents and brother.

In its life time the original chattel house moved location 3 times before settling in its current position.

We were married in St Peters Parish Church in Speightstown in 2009.

We love our house and hope that you do too.

I must start with fact that speightstown is a very friendly area in barbados the locals were very friendly the beaches around speightstown are very nice and only a 10 min walk from the apartment .... the apartment it self was very clean with all mod cons (even some English plug sockets) ..the buses that can take you any where in the island for 2 dollers is just at the end of the road I was going to rent a car but I realy didn't need too .... I'm planning to go back to barbados next year and I will be going back to this same apartment
