About Phil Reeves

Hi, my name is Phil and I live in England. I have been visiting Barbados with my wife Alison and family for some 16 years now and adore the place. I've owned my apartment in Barbados since 2005 and will be my retirement home in the future. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do visiting there.

Phil Reeves purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Phil Reeves chose Christ Church

Barbados is just a great place, but the area around Dover and the Gap to me offer everything you need. Great beaches, restaurants, bars, shops, ease of transport, and peace ! My apartment is no more than 2 minutes to the beach and within minutes walk of all the above. For old, young, families with kids, it's just a great location. There is enough choice around to cater for all budgets. You can have beaches to yourself or go to dover beach and have watersports. Choices for whatever you want to do. I just think it's a great place to stay in Barbados.

What makes this apartment unique

My apartment offers my guests the options to laze by the pool, eat at home, relax in peace all within the beautiful gardens. In addition superb beaches are within minutes away, as are restaurants, shops and bars. Getting around the island from here is easy with taxis and buses all nearby. Car hire is at the end of the road, with off road parking available at the apartment. You can just do most things from here. Bookings trips and getting picked up is also no issue.

In short, you can enjoy all the benefits of barbados in a great, affordable, spacious and comfortable apartment.

Great Experience and Location

  • 4 of 5

From the beginning, Phil was very accommodating. He was responsive via email and before you get to the island, he sends a "welcome pack" with most everything you need to know about the apartment as well as suggestions i.e. transportation. My friend and I sent him our flight itinerary and when we were arrived, we were greeted by the housekeeper Liz, I believe who was helpful and showed us around. The apartment itself is really big, spacious, with airconditioner and wifi which was great. The complex seems small - it looks to be about 4 maybe 6 units, and is really quiet which I appreciated, but not too quiet where we felt unsafe. The location is great and right off of St. Lawrence Gap- walking distance from the beach, bars, and restaurants. Everything else is a short taxi ride away. We rented a car for a day (there's a place about a block away from the apt) for $60 USD, and it was definitely worth it as it's the best way to visit different beaches/ attractions. The one drawback I would say is that there were not a few essentials like a hair dryer, shampoo/soap provided. We also only got 1 beach towel for both of us for a few days (although we were later on given one by Liz) Other than that, it's a spacious relaxing apartment and I would highly recommend as an alternative to an expensive all inclusive. Thanks Phil for an amazing stay!

Owner's Response: Hi Karen, many thanks for your review and so pleased you enjoyed yourselves there. Apologies regarding the beach towels as they should be there, but it seems they may now be a souvenir somewhere ! I'll address the hairdryer and shampoo situation, so appreciate the advice. Hopefully see you again ! Take care and many thanks. Phil

Comfortable, secure apartment in an awesome location with very friendly and helpful management

  • 5 of 5

Phil's apartment was the perfect place for our group of three to stay for a few nights surrounding a wedding. The location near Dover Beach is perfect and there are plenty of food and drink options around, including a grocery store on the corner. The apartment amenities were simple but just what we needed. Love the little deep pool and the wonderful air flow that the place gets. Ray and Liz who help manage the apartment were both extremely kind and helpful. Highly recommend staying here!

Lovely Condo

  • 5 of 5

I didn't know what to expect when I booked the condo. I was glad I booked the condo when I arrived. Our family had a wonderful time. The condo was very lovely and in a great location. It's about 15 minutes taxi ride to the condo which cost $20 USD. St. Lawrence Gap is about a 15 minutes walk and Dover Beach is about 5 minutes walk. There's also a grocery store around the corner. I recommend using the local buses to explore the island. It's only $1 USD each way.

Great Holiday

  • 4 of 5

Fabulous island with warm friendly people. The great apartment is just a minute away from Dover Beach. Has its own pool shared by three other apartments but we were the only ones. We effectively used the apartment as a base to explore the local beaches etc. the beauty of not being in an AI hotel is eating out so though we ate in once we really only used the kitchen for breakfast as the restaurants are brilliant and in uk terms quite inexpensive.

A/C in the bedrooms which we needed as it was quite humid at the time we went.

Bars and restaurants start just at the end of the road where the St Lawrence gap starts. In my opinion this is at the right (quieter) end of the strip. We met people who were staying at the western end who said it was noisy until the early hours.

Great apartment in a great spot.
