Updated: 17-Oct-2016
2 Bedroom Apartment On The West Coast Just A Few Minutes Walk From The Beautiful Reeds Bay With Its White Sand And Warm Water

About the Owner

Living in Surrey, we have both enjoyed careers as Air Traffic Controllers. Steve is making the most of early retirement, and Ros has just recently (2016) taken voluntary redundancy. We love travelling whenever we can, and have visited many interesting and spectacular places all over the world. As keen divers we have visited many of the Caribbean Islands, and have felt most at home in Barbados.

Lovely apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent 10 days in the apartment and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. The apartment was exactly as described in the online description, clean and well appointed. It is the perfect place to relax and unwind.

The owners were very informative and helpful sending out a detailed information pack prior to our arrival and answering any queries we had. I would not hesitate to recommend this apartment.

Arrived in Barbadous 14 May 2016 for 10 days and stayed at Westlock Apartments.. It was truly amazing .. The apartment was much more than we expected .. We had looked at the pics and thought wow.. But it was Perfect like Home from Home !! Everything you could want and much much more ..

We have never stayed in an Apartment before so was abit septical but it was perfect...

Ros the Owner could not have been more helpful when booking with advice on we're to eat places to visit even arranging the taxi from the Airport who was a lovely gentleman called Lloyd .. Who was waiting immediately at the airport and took us straight to our Appartment which was only about 2o 30 mins from the airport so was perfect.

Cleaning service every few days beds changed was so so nice really was looked after even though my Husband loves cleaning lol the Apartment was spotless all week infact we even sent the cleaning girl away once as we had kept the apartment so nice .. Fresh towels regularly was amazing .. We cannot wait return.. As for Barbadous PARADISE !!!!

The views from the apartment are Stunning and watching the Sunset was Breathtaking ..

Beaches are to die for .. The locals are so so friendly and you must go and see Jefferson at the bottom of the road he has a local shop we a few bits and bobs but also a bar were he cooks delicious food at reasonable prices .. He and his Wife are the nicest people we have ever met.. We ate there a number of times and every time was delicious..

Mullins beach is a nice beach with comfy sunbeds and a bar on the beach lovely friendly locals there with Jet ski.s boats and various trips you must try one of them .. Amazing .

The sea is Amazing the weather is Amazing .. Def would go for 2 or 3 weeks next year it's truly iydilic !!!!

Amazing Amazing Amazing !!!!

We had a brilliant time and I would thoroughly recommend this property to anyone planning a trip to Barbados.

Communication with Ros was brilliant and the travel pack was detailed.

The location was also perfect, with just a short walk down the hill to Jeffersons bar and a lovely beach.

I would also recommend Lloyd for car hire. Ros has his contact details - he will meet you at the airport, sort the paperwork etc at the apartment and drive you back to the airport after your stay. I had a minor shunt when we were there (not my fault and hardly any damage) and Lloyd couldn't have been more helpful. He's a really nice guy.

All in all a great stay and we will return !

Fantastic stay with family of four

  • 5 of 5

((Nearly)) everything was fantastic. We had a little issue with the (lack of) water pression in the shower, so that it was hard to get sand from the beach removed, and given the shortness of our stay of only 4 nights (half of which was big holidays over New Year's Eve), it couldn't be fixed during our stay, but surely quickly thereafter, as otherwise everything was fantastically set-up and managed. We would definetely return!

Fabulous Apartment!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second but hopefully not our last stay at this superb apartment! We have spent five wonderful weeks at Westlook and enjoyed our stay as much as we did last January!

The apartment is so comfortable, well equipped, spacious and extremely private. The enormous veranda/ outdoor living space is exceptional with a view from which one never tires!

Our days were filled with swimming and snorkelling on the local beach, walking in the surrounding countryside and reading.

Because of the nearby Highway it is easy to get to the both Holetown and Speightstown for groceries and to visit other beaches if desired.(the local beach though is one of the best in the area though).

The apartment is close to the beach and the Highway and because of this we did not feel we needed to hire a car .

The apartment is maintained to a high standard and is managed extremely well by Rachel and cleaned twice a week by Kim.

This is one fabulous place to stay in Barbados!

Christmas in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing holiday. This started with being picked up from the airport by Lloyd, greeted by Betty at your fabulous apartment who had brought the shopping we'd requested. The information pack sent by Ros and Steve prior to travel was really useful and they responded promptly by email with any queries we had.

We hired a car from Lloyd for the 2 weeks we were there allowing us to explore Barbados at our leisure. My husband and I had visited Barbados 26 years ago and it was exciting to return to the Wildlife Reserve, Harrison's Caves, the Flower Forest and a nostalgic trip back to Hastings where we'd stayed in 1989. Improvements were apparent at all of these attractions although Hastings was almost unrecognisable and so busy!

The apartment is situated away from the "touristy" areas and was only a short walk down the hill to the beautiful beach. We could access the local buses too and went to oistins one Friday night and loved watching the ballroom dancing in particular. We often bused into holetown too and enjoyed a good night at Ragamuffins who run Drag queen shows on Sunday nights (booking advised). Sunday nights seemed to be party nights on 1st street with karaoke and dancing creating a real party atmosphere.

One of our most favourite places to eat, drink and chill was the Carlton variety store down the road from the apartment. Jefferson and his regulars welcomed us so warmly! We're perfecting our domino slamming technique they taught us!

We also enjoyed de outback not far from the apartment for traditional food and loved the live music they have certain nights.

The Fishermans place in speightstown was excellent value too. On Christmas Day we booked into the beach house for their buffet. It was expensive but delicious!

Highlight of our stay swimming with turtles on Christmas Eve. We booked the trip with the lads at the local beach. Fantastic! St Nicholas abbey is well worth a visit too and we did the lunch tour at the mount gay rum factory.

Lloyd was so reliable, he was at the apartment in good time to get us back to the airport although we were reluctant to leave! We can't wait to return and we would definitely stay in this well equipped, clean and well-maintained apartment watching the green monkeys, humming birds, lizards from the balcony as well as the cruise ships toing and froing on the Caribbean Sea. Heaven!

From the Owner

There are few places in Barbados that have such a wonderful, panoramic view of the Caribbean Sea, and yet are so close to an unspoilt, white sandy beach. We feel very lucky to have found a unique apartment in such a ideal spot - on the hillside, making the most of the view and the breeze, yet only a short stroll for a swim in the warm Caribbean Sea - perfect!

From the Owner

We love being away from the crowds and tourist developments, yet with the facilities of the West coast conveniently close by. We never tire of sitting on our terrace with a cool drink, watching the hummingbirds on the alamanda flowers below, or the monkeys in the trees nearby. Even in the hottest summer months the apartment is cooled by the breeze, and the sunsets over the Caribbean Sea can be spectacular at any time of year.
