“Affordable self-catering base in a great location”
Reviewed 12 January 2018 for a stay in December 2017

We very much enjoyed our two weeks in this apartment. It had everything we needed and was close to all the main facilities in Sunset Crest / Holetown. The wifi, bedroom air-conditioning, mobile phone for local use and beach club card were all included within the booking price, which was great. Contact with the owners, Robert and Fay, was efficient, friendly and helpful, as was the service from their property manager on arrival and departure.

“Our second visit - just as good as the first”
Reviewed 14 July 2017 for a stay in June 2017

We last stayed here in November 2016 and liked it so much that we returned in June 2017.
In that time the owners have made some improvements which in our view make the apartment even better. The main door has been replaced - this improves on the sound insulation (not that we ever found noise to be a problem on both of our stays anyway - the apartment is in a side street so traffic noise is not a problem), the old microwave has been replaced, the bathroom shower is much improved and there is now a huge 16kg capacity washing machine which is a huge bonus. We were away for a month in total and it was very convenient to be able to machine wash our clothes, beach towels etc. on a regular basis.
As we were leaving Sarah, the representative was arranging an appointment for fibre optic internet to be installed. I presume that this has now been done and will improve things even further.
We really like staying here. The apartment is nicely appointed and maintained, in a great location and we hope to return yet again some time in the future.

Hi again Alison and Brian,

It was a pleasure to have you return to our condo and we couldn't be happier that you appreciated the many changes that we have made over the last 6 months or so. We are still awaiting the installation of the internet service at the condo and, unfortunately, things do take longer to get accomplished in Barbados so the service is not quite setup yet. We will update our ad at the website when the in-condo internet service is finally installed but, in the meantime, the internet service from the coffee shop across the street is still up and running smoothly so, in any event, guests will continue to have internet service available to them when they stay at our condo.

Thanks once again and we look forward to the opportunity to be able to host you once again when you next decide to visit Barbados!

All the best to you both!

“Well equipped condo in a good location”
Reviewed 7 December 2016 for a stay in November 2016

We stayed at Rob & Fay's condo in November 2016. Rob was very quick to respond to our initial enquiries and even sent links to some videos which he had put on youtube where he shows what is in it, and the surrounding area, which we found very helpful.

It is very well equipped and had pretty much everything we required. The shopper was particularly appreciated for trips to and from the supermarket. The kitchen is definitely a 'single person' kitchen, but there's everything you need - a good selection of pots, pans, utensils, fridge, freezer, oven etc. We found that the toaster kept setting off the smoke alarm, (you need to press the button in the middle to silence it) and (a tip) if you're cooking a lot it's helpful to use one of the provided fans to blow air into the kitchen area.

The bedroom had free A/C which was appreciated and an extremely comfortable bed.

The nearest beach is about 5 mins walk away - we found it easiest to walk along Flamboyant Ave & then turn down a small paved track towards the main road - cross over & the access to the beach is just about opposite.

It's easy to get into Holetown too, which takes about 10 minutes. Once again walk along Flamboyant Ave & then just carry on through the car park & past the Chattel Village.

Sarah, the property manager, was very helpful, Bonita the maid kept the place nice & clean and the taxi (Patrick) which was organised for us from the airport was excellent too.

We really liked the apartment and the very convenient location and hope to be able to have the opportunity to stay there again in the future.

Thank you very much for your review that effectively highlights all of the features (comfort, location, proximity to beach, etc.) that we offer. We are definitely humbled by your comments. We had not been aware of the smoke alarm being set off by the toaster as you are the first guest to bring this to our attention (it's good to know that it's working, if only perhaps too well..) so we will have to look at alternative options as regards its placement. We will also definitely pass along your comments to our local staff and we know that they work very hard to try to ensure that all of our guests have a great stay so it's good to know that their efforts are being acknowledged and appreciated. It has been a pleasure to have you stay at our condo and we can only look forward to a future time when we might be able to host you once again for a great vacation stay in "paradise". We wish you a wonderful holiday season and 'tlll next time! Rob and Fay

The owner Robert is very helpful and will reply to your emails in good time, which is always a bonus. He will send you loads of info on Barbados and Sunset Crest, which is very useful.
The condo is near to amenities.
The apartment is dated and in need of a fresh coat of paint throughout, but the kitchen fridge,( but be aware fridge gets extremely hot on the side facing into the kitchen and by the door, as it is in a very tight space) oven,kettle etc are new. The bed is SUPER comfy, we slept very well.

However, our biggest problem with the condo was the fact that it wasn't very clean. Thick layers of dust on every cupboard door, kitchen cupboards made from ply-wood that absorbed smells of cooking fat, so your clean glasses etc, instantly smelled of that when you put them in the cupboard. The pillows were very badly stained under the pillow case. The light bulbs had clearly never been dusted and the dust was burned on to them. The base of the toilet and the corners of the bathroom were filthy. The glass of the sliding doors was dirty, the edge of the doors was filthy, and we could open the doors they were so un oiled. The safe doesn't work nor have the owners replaced it, the old air con controls are just cut off and still in the room. When we arrived the shower was just a trickle of water and coming out of the wall,Sarah, the lady who looks after the property for Robert and Fay, did come and oil the doors, and replaced a completely non non stick pan for us. She also had the shower fixed. Yes, the property was as described, and even seen in a little film, the old fashioned look of the property was never in dispute, but films and pictures don't show dingy paintwork and dirt.
I did email Robert, but he does not take criticism well, ( he will very politely imply that you are just being difficult) and I just gave up in the end. I have attached pictures to justify my report here. I have many more examples, but no more time to add them.
I met some people who had stayed in the apartment before, and they said it didn't used to be dirty, but has always needed a good coat of paint. So it could be that they just need to re-think their cleaning situation. I believe it is their intention to paint the condo this year.

I am happy to advise that, as I had indicated to you during your stay, the condo has been completely repainted and fully cleaned in late May 2016 and, in addition, the condo now also offers a small washing machine on site to enable guests to do small wash loads while staying at the condo. I had tried to explain to you that the bulk of the cleaning issues that you had was due to the fact that you moved in within a four hour window of our previous guests' departure (they in turn also moved in within a few hours of the previous guests' stay as well) and, as a result, we had been unable to schedule the full cleaning that we normally do and would have liked to have done prior to your own arrival.

The cleaning of the condo has never been an issue with our rental in the past (as evidenced by numerous previous guests' reviews) and we are truly sorry that you had the experience that you had in that regard while staying at the condo. We have emphasized to our local Barbados Manager that this poor maintenance of the condo must not ever be repeated and every effort will be made in the future for this not to happen again!

We thank you for your feedback and wish you all the best, as always.

Robert and Fay
