Highly recommend staying at Diannes place it has everything you could possibly need when on holiday, ideal location for exploring the island, close to beaches (15 min walk) and bus stops for either the 'yellow' bus or government run blue bus. Experiencing the 'yellow' bus is a must, with the reggae music and 'honk honk'. Oh and Oistens Fishfry Friday. For those wanting to explore a car is ideal, Simon recommended MAHcarrentals and am so glad he did, great service and cost effective. Once in contact with Simon who manages Diannes place, everything ran smoothly and he really did go above and beyond making sure everything was perfect for our holiday. Beds are so comfortable and the breeze that runs through the property when windows are open is more than welcome :) Cant wait to return, couldn't have asked for more

“Again, great vacation place”

This is my second time staying at Diane home. I stayed this time for 25 days. Simon is always a pleasure to work with. He answered every call I made when there was a problem. If he didn't answer immediately, he called back quickly and problem was solved immediately.
He even called me to make sure I was ok when the phone that was provided to use
pocket dialed his friend. I appreciated that. I also met his wife upon my departure, she's just as sweet as Simon is.
The apartment itself was yet again a great place to stay in, although a little hot in the common areas. I can't say enough good things about this place. What a good vacation I had, thanks Diane and Simon!

“Lovely spacious apartment”

Really nice apartment, particularly the master bedroom. Nice big kitchen and lovely views from balcony. Nice to see some green monkeys in the local area. Helpful lift to supermarket on checkin. The only drawback is no air con in the lounge, dining and kitchen area. There are fans but it can get hot. Also only one tv channel. However, we would stay again.

We really enjoyed our stay at 29, Appleby Gardens. The apartment is very spacious, comfortable, with three bedrooms, full kitchen, washing machine for laundry, flat screen TV,
WIFI, and a balcony with a view of the sea. The local beaches are within walking distance, and the local buses will take you to Bridgetown, Holetown, or Speightstown,
for $1.00 us./ person. The closest grocery store Jordan's, is within walking distance, and if you have 4- bags of groceries, or more, they provide a shuttle service to drive you back to the apartment. There subdivision seems very safe, and the local people are so friendly and helpful.

“Perfect holiday home away from home!!”

Me and my family of 5 greatly enjoyed our stay at this apartment. It contained everything you would need in a home even down to a small medication drawer in the kitchen.

Place was extremely clean, everywhere!!! It was as though we were the first to ever stay at this property.

Plenty of space for everyone and everything, with each room having spacious wardrobe storage. Rooms had comfy beds, lots of towels and bedding.

Diane the property owner and Simon the property manager were both great, helping with any questions or needs we had.

Didnt spend much time in the living room (which contains TV and DVDs) but spent out on the balcony with beautiful views of the sea which is a short walk down the road.

Easy to get to everywhere by bus, we didn't hire a car and went to many Parishes.

Nearby restaurants for when you don't feel like cooking which are really great prices!! (I recommend Chefette to towards Bridgetown on the bus or Just grilling towards Speightstown on the bus)

Overall, perfect holiday apartment and would love to stay here again.

“Fabulous base to explore Barbados!”
Reviewed July 12, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We spent a week in this lovely apartment and my only complaint was that we had to leave. The layout is open and spacious enough for our family of 5. We rented a car and traveled up and down the west coast to enjoy some amazing beaches. Our favorite was Alleynes Bay with gentle water and turtles swimming only a few meters away from the shore. It was about a 10 minute drive from Appleby. We also visited Paynes Bay and Harrison's Beach. All were excellent for swimming and snorkeling and just a short drive from the apartment. Harrison's Cave is another unique experience worth the 20 minute drive. The apartment was the perfect place to relax, cook memorable pancake breakfasts, and spend some quality time away from the bustle of the south coast. I can't wait to start planning my next visit.
