This was our first holiday to Barbados and we have had the most amazing time. We had a long flight delay, but this was no trouble as Brian was happy to meet us at the apartment not matter how late we arrived. He was very welcoming and helpful. Cathrin, the owner always replies quickly to emails and answered all our questions.
The apartment is lovely, a real home from home. The complex is small and quiet and everyone was really friendly. The walk down to the beach does take 20-30 mins but we really enjoyed the walk. There is a car hire place nearby, Top car rentals, they were very helpful and we were able to hire a car at short notice.
The local ZR buses are brilliant, an experience not to be missed and at 2 barbadian dollars each, a very cheap way of travelling around the island.
The local supermarket, Masseys, is quite a walk away, probably about 30 mins which is not ideal in the heat but they do have a courtesy bus which will bring you home so this is perfect.
Eating out is quite expensive but we did enjoy some lovely places. Shakers is a must, look at the recent reviews on trip advisor. A little shack that we would have walked past, but the food was beautiful, would definitely recommend the blackened fish!! The staff were really friendly but you need to book as they are always busy.
A trip to St. Nicholas Abbey is also worth a visit, a beautiful setting, lots of history and a lovely cafe! So many wonderful memories of our first trip to Barbados, will not be our last. Thank you to Cathrin for providing such a lovely base.
