About Judie Kingdom

We are Judie and Patrick. I am originally from Surrey and Patrick from Yorkshire. Much of my childhood and early life was lived in Wales, and Patrick comes from an Irish family, but was born and has lived all his life in Yorkshire. His father was a doctor who came to work in Sheffield as a GP in the 1950s. I have also lived in Devon. Patrick and I have been together since 1982 and have one grown up son. I also have two older children who live in Essex and Germany, and who have provided me with three lovely grandchildren. I am a retired librarian, having worked in both public libraries and in the Arts, Film and Media section of Sheffield Hallam University Learning Centre. These days we are rather nomadic! We both enjoy travel, reading, Scrabble, crosswords, cooking and wine!

Judie Kingdom purchased this house in 2008

Why Judie Kingdom chose Newton Terrace

We loved the position of 'Morning Glory' being in an attractive residential location, close to Barbados Golf Club, our favourite Miami Beach, and a short 5 minute hop from the airport. The area is very safe and select and relaxing.

The house is most attractive with everything of a very high quality.

We appreciated having both a first floor balcony and a ground floor terrace. It is lovely to have the freedom and space of a whole house rather than an apartment.

What makes this house unique

We so enjoy dining alfresco which can be every night in Barbados! It is also lovely to be able to take a dip in the pool at any time of the day or night.

The shops just 3 minutes away at Oistins are excellent and include a really good supermarket, which stocks everything that one needs.

We really enjoy watching the planes arrive in Barbados from our terrace. They are just close enough to distinguish the airlines, but not near enough to produce any noise!

Guestbook comments from the owner

' The pool and garden was a bonus for our children, who could safely play outside the house'

' Returning for a third time, our 'Morning Glory' holiday has now become the highlight of our year'

' Enterprise beach was everything you promised. We didn't want to go anywhere else all week'

Lovely property, fantastic pool, car essential

  • 4 of 5

The house is in a lovely neighbourhood, feeling very safe with friendly neighbours. We literally had the pool completely to ourselves. We swam every day and never saw a single person there!!

The house had everything you would need, plenty of towels and bedding. I do think it would have been handy to have a washing machine though.

The house is huge! For a family of three we had more than enough space.

We would definitely stay here again, great communication with the owner, very helpful with any questions we had.

Only small negatives were , the size of the TV in the living room, it is very small! You have to squint to watch it from the sofa!!!

With a bit of TLC this place could be really special, a lick of paint would make all the difference!!

Owner's Response: We do plan some interior re-decoration and TLC the next time we are over in Barbados, probably early 2019. Our prices have been temporarily reduced to reflect that there has been some wear and tear, which needs to be remedied. The TV could be bigger - but it is not much used as our guests are mostly on the beach, in the pool, or out on the town! We do strongly recommend a car as it is so very convenient for exploring the island, but there are plenty of local taxis, and hourly buses running to the beach, which is only a short distance, yet it's uphill on the way back, so only walkable for the young and hearty!

Very relaxing getaway

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 3 had a great, very relaxing vacation here. Townhome is in a great spot, safe small gated complex very close to the airport and about 5 minute drive to some very nice beaches. We rented a car which I highly suggest. Short drive down the highway to St Lawrence gap, where we had a few wonderful dinners. Air conditioning in bedrooms worked very well and downstairs living area was comfortable with the windows open. We used the pool every day and had it all to ourselves. Tv could be bigger although we don’t go on vacation to watch tv anyway. We were ready to come back to Morning Glory as soon as we got home, had a fantastic time! Thank you Judie!

In love now with Barbados

  • 4 of 5

We arrived at night, in the dark by the time we had picked up our car. The house was ready for us & the outside light had been left on. We slept well as the air conditioning worked well. A pack of information was very helpful & so we were able to eat out at good interesting places & buy our shopping for our everyday needs. The pack of information was very well used so perhaps could do with a new folder.

We loved swimming in the pool which we had to ourselves, just speaking to the very friendly neighbours when we saw them. Loungers would have been nice but we were happily lounging on the beautiful beaches all day so an evening swim was really what we wanted.

We found the car was for us a necessity as we are possibly a bit older than most guests. We did use a taxi a couple of times for dinners out though we also enjoyed using the BBQ provided. We also cooked in couple of times & found all we needed for that though a dishwasher might have been nice. No problem really just washing a few pots.

We had no need for contact with the manager of the property. I believe the owners were English so perhaps had not been for a while themselves which is perhaps why you could tell the property was cared for but not loved. We could easily have stayed for a month though we were not able to change our flights so we're unable to even if the house had been available. We did actually look into doing this but BA were inflexible. Sadly we had to go home after our 10 days were up.

We hope to return again to continue our wonderful relaxing holiday.

Really relaxing holiday

  • 4 of 5

We thought the location couldn't have been better, being near a good, locals' fish market and a beach with more gentle sea and not surrounded by tourists. We barbequed freshly caught fish at home on a couple of evenings and we really loved eating breakfast on the bedroom balcony.

Our hire car ( a necessity I think) gave us a freedom which we loved and driving around the island is very easy.

We were more than happy with our temporary home ( not sure why it was reviewed so harshly) and are already talking about returning.

In dire need of owners attention

  • 4 of 5

Stayed for 2 weeks in February, the rental is in a quiet position Nr, the golf course but NOT withing in walking distance to the beach, this property is in need of a good refurbishment, listing states the property is a new build IT IS NOT, it's at least 10 years old and tatty, the outside paintwork is stained and mouldy and every room needs redecorating, the walls are dirty and marked, all insect screens are broken and in need of replacement. The bathroom is a good size but the the tap in the bath drips water constantly and the shower is a fixed temperature, whilst staying at the property we had the plumber out on 2 occasions to try to sort the shower out. The bedding is stained and the blankets were unusable due to being soiled, and I had to go out and buy new pillows as the ones provided were disgusting. Due to an issue with the water supply we had no water for over 36 hrs and there is no facility for water storage at the property as required by barbadian law. The kitchen was well equipped but the cooker was dirty and again items need replacing, can opener and scissors especially, I went out and bought my own, a lot of the crockery is chipped. The TV did not work for 4 days, the cable company came out and fixed it at our request. The wifi is shared with a neighbour and the reception is atrocious and unreliable, it drops out constantly and the signal is very very week. There are no outside loungers as stated in the advert only 4 patio chairs and the door onto the balcony from the bedroom is broken and very difficult to shut once opened, several of the windows are not secure as they are unable to be latched when closed. Good points about the property are the fabulous neighbour, large living room with comfy sofas. We had so many issues whilst staying at the property we got a partial refund from the owner, but had to wait 4 weeks for the Chq due to the owner having lack of funds

Owner's Response: This review is extremely biased and unfair. Undoubtedly there were problems. In 30 years experience of holiday letting, thankfully, and only very occasionally a let goes badly wrong from start to finish, and this was one such time. We do say the house is a 25 minute walk to the beach, and recommend a bus or taxi back as it's uphill. The house was a new build, which was correct when written. When alerted we actioned a whole set of new pillows to be bought immediately , so the guest had no need to buy any. A professional agency performed cleaning for this guest, and a high quality laundry is used for the bedding and towels. We have never before received any complaints about the bedding or cleaning, or indeed about anything else! There were unfortunately water outages during this guest's stay. These do occur occasionally and are entirely out of our control. There is a rainwater tank on site which can be used for all purposes except drinking, and in fact the guest did use this facility. Communal sun loungers are available in the pool area. We did once have our own, but lost two sets to the weather. The rear of the building (not our house which is at the front) has become discoloured by weathering. A power wash is currently being organised, which is to be followed in due course by a complete re-painting. I have just arranged since this let, a check of the internal decoration which has been judged to be OK. There are just a few marks here and there. Immediately we were alerted to the plumbing problems and TV breakdown, we actioned a plumber and TV engineers to call, and everything was fixed. The Internet connection which is shared with our neighbour usually works excellently for laptops, but occasionally it does seem some small devices don't connect well. This guest was unable to connect even when invited inside our neighbour's house. Guests perhaps need to realise that it is a Caribbean island and sometimes services are not as reliable, or as quick to fix as in the US or UK. We responded speedily, actioned help swiftly, and bent over backwards to please this guest, offering a totally free holiday as compensation which was refused. We provided an extremely generous refund, the guests only covering the running costs of electricity, etc. Our house in Barbados is let at a budget level, but for which this guest clearly expected 5 star service and accommodation. 'Morning Glory' is truly a lovely property, so please don't be put off by this cruel and picky review.

Excellent apartment in Barbados

  • 5 of 5

We rented an apartment for two weeks for our family stay in Barbados, we would highly recommend the apartment as it was great for us with a family. It took a matter of only a few minutes drive to get from the airport to the apartment which was an added bonus, the facilities were great with everything you need on hand. Location was ideal within 5 mins drive from oistins.

Car: recommended


Just a 3 minute drive to the fishing village of Oistins and a 5 minute drive to a fabulous beach, with free parking alongside the sands. This is the spectacular Miami Beach at Enterprise on the South Coast. A wonderful white sand beach where the sea is a brilliant turquoise. Everything you might need is here -sun beds, parasols, refreshments, excellent shower and WC facilities, shaded picnic tables, and also Cafe Luna overlooking the beach is one of the very best restaurants on the island!


Easy 5 minute drive from the airport. Car hire strongly recommended, but good bus service available. Buses travel all over the island, and an hourly service goes right to Miami Beach, which just takes a few minutes to get there.


Close to shops, restaurants, a great supermarket, pharmacy, cash points, etc., all just 3 minutes drive away in Oistins. Only 10 minute drive to St Lawrence Gap, glitzy nightlife beside the sea. A 20 minute drive to the capital Bridgetown. Ideal position for exploring the island by hire car or by using the local bus services. Bus stop just a 400 yard level walk from 'Morning Glory'.

Further Details:

Amazing value! From less than £17 per night per person with 4 sharing! 'Morning Glory' is an ideal option for a most economical holiday in a lovely, safe, and attractive residential area, and benefits from being close to two of the best beaches in Barbados.
