About Heather Haddon

We are a married couple in our early 60s. I am a retired teacher and my husband is a semi retired chartered accountant.

Heather Haddon purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Heather Haddon chose St. James

We bought the apartment for 2 reasons - to have somewhere to stay when visiting our grandchildren in Barbados and for the convenience of the situation. We are near all the amenities in one of the main holiday areas but in a quiet position.Everything you need is within walking distance. The gardens are great, being cool and shady and the pool is big enough for real swimming. As the apartments are only one bedroomed, the block tends to attract couples and is quite peaceful and alot of the apartments are not rented out ensuring that it is never very busy.

What makes this apartment unique

We particularly chose our apartment as it is on the top floor( with 2 lifts) and it has views over the trees to the sea and it catches all the through breezes making a/c usually unnecessary. In December 2009, the kitchen was refitted with new cabinets, fridge/ freezer and cooker. We have also knocked a wall down to make it more open plan which makes it cooler for cooking. The bathroom was modernised in May 2016 and now has a walk in shower. We have cable tv . Our apartment renters are members of the beach House for the duration of their stay . This includes a pool and beach access

My husband is from B'dos and we have stayed at Golden View many times over the last 28 years. This was the first time we had stayed in this particular apartment which had been recommended by my sister. The apartment is excellent value for money, well equipped and benefits from large opening between kitchen and living area. Being on the third floor offer's an excellent view and additional benefits for a cooling breeze. It is quiet, comfortable and will book to stay here again on our next visit to the Island.

The apartment is near some of the most beautiful beaches of the Island (even if we suggest to rent a car for having a look on the Whole Island). To reach the beach it takes about 10 minutes walking and about 5 to the small village and supermarket). Nice garden with swimming pool and Chinese restaurant. Well equipped kitchen and balcony having nice view. No night- life. Perfect for old people or a family with kids. .
