My Bajan partner, 2 year old and I traveled to Barbados for New Years. We have visited many times and stayed at different properties. This time around since NYE tends to be very expensive we were looking for reasonably priced accomodations but didn’t want to compromise on location
and comforts. Palmcrest didn’t disappoint!
We enjoyed the 1 bedroom apartment. It is updated with modern finishes like granite countertops, nice kitchen cabinets and tiled clean bathroom. These details are impt to me!! The size of the Apt was perfect for us and allowed privacy ... ie my daughter could sleep in large bedroom with door closed while we relaxed in cozy living room or ate in kitchen. We enjoyed having our front door open to the enclosed veranda where our 2 year old played. We rented a crib for $50/week from a local babysitter. If you are traveling with a child, I highly recommend also using a babysitter - this made all the difference to us! We had a referral from a friend but I also considered island sitters. Reasonable rates. Our babysitter came with us to beach and outings — allowing all of us to fully enjoy the vacation!
Location is great. Steps away from fancy Limegrove shops and new fully stocked supermarket. Awesome window shopping, movie theater, and cafes in Limegrove. Our favorite places to go to in holetown are Zacchios for pizza happy hour, waterfront. I like Drift too for a lounge/bar/cocktails, waterfront.
The best beach to walk to is Folkstone. Once you get there walk to the left on boardwalk ... the most lovely, calm, not busy stretch of beach. Just perfect. We weren’t fans of the beach house pool because it was crowded during the holidays - I suspect it may be better at other times of year.

Lavern and husband take great pride in their home and are lovely hosts. Their Suncrest location lets you feel like a local on the West Coast!
I rented this apartment for myself and my family for a two-week stay on the beautiful West Coast of the island. The property has two other apartments, which I also rented for other members of my family, so we could all stay together. The apartments are all spotless and clean, modern and updated and well maintained. They were well stocked with everything we needed, and more, for our stay and fresh linen and towels were always provided. The property is just as advertised, and even better when we got there, than as shown in photos. It is 3 minutes walk to everything, including beaches, and the Beach House is an added bonus, as we used the pool and swam in the lovely nearby beach almost everyday. Lavern, the owner, is a fantastic host. She greeted us upon arrival, showed us around the area and pointed out all the places of interests. She was always available to us during our stay and recommended lots of great places to eat and activities; nothing was ever too much trouble. She made sure that we enjoyed our vacation and that we we were always comfortable. I would highly recommend these apartments to anyone in need of clean, conveniently located accommodations - it is great value for money and you will not find a better host than Lavern. We are already planning our next trip later this year and will of course, be staying at Palm Crest Apartments. I highly recommend this property and thank Lavern for making our vacation such an incredibly enjoyable one.
