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
About Ros and Steve
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.
Ros and Steve purchased this apartment in 2008
Why Ros and Steve chose Barbados
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!
What makes this apartment unique
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.

Very relaxing fortnight
We had a very relaxing and enjoyable holiday at westlook the apartment is very well appointed. Ros and Steve were a great help with all aspects from providing all details of the property to arranging transport from the airport and car hire. The view is fabulous with great sunsets. A morning stroll down to the beach for swim before breakfast was a fabulous start to the day. The cleaning staff were friendly and very efficient. Highly recommend a stay there it is in a great location for everything along the west coast.
We will hopefully be returning.
This is our third time at this superb apartment and our second time this year! It is extremely well maintained by the owners and the management company and really does tick all the boxes. The inside is very well furnished and very comfortable with quality beds and fixtures and fittings. The outdoor living space is truly brilliant with a spectacular view over the Caribbean sea, watching the sun set from here is a definite highlight! The apartment is a five minute walk to a very quiet, beautiful beach, five minutes to a local shop and bar/ eatery and about ten minutes to a rum shack, fish market and fruit/ vegetable stall. Getting around is easy because of the proximity to the coastal road, Holetown and Speightstown. If you do decide to book you will not be disappointed!
Lovely apartment in a great location
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
((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!
