About Margaret Blackman

Margaret and Bill Blackman offer you a warm English, Bajan welcome to their delightful apartment Tightlines. So called because of the owners passion for fishing. Margaret and Bill retired to Barbados from U.K. in 2002 to build their home in the sunshine. Both are retired nurses.

Why Margaret Blackman chose Upper Carlton

Tightlines is close to a quiet Bajan village (Rock Dundo) with a local shop and bar and is only a 5 minute drive to one of the most beautiful beaches in Barbados.

The apartment is just a short distance away from Highway 2A which gives you easy access to most parts of the island as well as the airport.

The area is peaceful and relaxing.

What makes this apartment unique

Tightlines offers you a warm and friendly welcome.

Bill is a keen fisherman and we are happy to arrange fishing trips for you.

Bill is also a photographer with one of the better known hotels and should you wish an anniversary or birthday picture or just a photograph on the beach we will be happy to do that for you.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I could not imagin a better place to stay in Barbados. I will definately come back. (Anais London)

The apartment is perfect. Very clean and private with every appliance and utility needed. Without a doubt we will be going back. (Nick and Antoinette Rochdale U.K.)

The apartment is a good base if you wish to see the island. We will come back again and again. (Karen and Perry Alberta Canada).

idyllic home from home

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here originally for 3 weeks and enjoyed it so much, I stayed for a further week.

Maggie and Bill were fantastic hosts, nothing was too much trouble, they were both informative and accommodating.

The apartment was clean and spacious. The view from the patio is sensational with lots of trees and beautiful flowering shrubs.

Chris's place is a local mini mart and bar within walking distance where you can eat delicious local Bajan food and drink a nice cold Banks beer. Well worth a visit.

There is a bus stop not far from the apartment which will take you to Bridgetown.

I cannot wait to book my next holiday to Barbados.

Good good Bajan food at Chris place, beach is in walking distance, Gibbs bay, although I would recommed a car for your stay

I rate this place 5 because my mum stayed with us who is Bajan she had no complaints !!! need I say anymore
