“Fantastic!”
Reviewed August 5, 2018 for a stay in July 2018

We had a great stay in The Wicket! Jon & Nicki provided a comprehensive set of arrival information and we booked a pickup from the airport with Michael who was waiting to meet us. A 30 minute drive saw us arrive in Speightstown to be greeted and shown around by Paulette the housekeeper. The Wicket is a very comfortable and superbly equipped apartment with washing machine, dryer and fully equipped kitchen even down to a measuring jug! Each bedroom has its own AC as well as one for the lounge and an additional one for the kitchen so you can manage each areas temperature individually. The second floor balcony is secure and provides a lovely view over the ocean and white sands beach. Over the course of our week there we only occasionally shared the beach with anyone else - it is almost exclusively yours, and we even saw a turtle laying it’s eggs one night while walking back from dinner! There is a reef 20 metres out which is great for snorkelling - the GoPro is now full of underwater footage! Another great feature of The Wicket is the security. You enter on the ground floor either by foot via a keypad gated entry or drive in with the remote control for the electric gate. From there you need another key to access the communal corridor before a further key into The Wicket itself, which incidentally also has its own safe for valuables. We found eating out quite expensive and so alternated with cooking ourselves, which with the combination of a couple of supermarkets close by and the well equipped kitchen made this very easy. There is a lot to do in and around Speightstown and if all you want to do is relax you have everything you need right there. However we decided to hire a car and explore further afield a few days after we arrived, and calling around found that the recommended MAH car hire was the cheapest. Personally I think its well worth a car for a few days to go visit the East and South coasts, and if you end up doing anything else like a Catamaran trip or water sports etc, it’s far easier to just drive down yourself - although most will pick you up from Speightstown. We also did some paddle boarding arranged by Edmo, 10 mins South of Speightstown and found him to be very reliable and professional, and able to arrange pretty much anything you want to do in the water. I can’t recommend The Wicket enough for the versatility and comfort it offers as well as location right on the beach and access local amenities - you won’t be disappointed - and we’ll certainly be back!

“Fantastic beachfront penthouse in a great lovation.”
Reviewed June 3, 2018 for a stay in May 2018

Stayed for the first time in Speightstown albeit not our first visit there. Wickets was superbly located on the quieter end of town but no more than a few minutes walk from all the main restaurants and bars in town and short bus or taxi rides to other popular locations. Lovely accomodation, well presented and offering all the facilities you would want, including a sea front view over a lovely quiet beach with terrace getting the sun all day and sunset at night. The four of us had a lovely week here and would recommend to others. So much going for it and so convenient.

“Brilliant, unforgettable holiday”
Reviewed May 22, 2018 for a stay in April 2018

We were looking for a special location to celebrate our 30th Wedding Anniversary and we could not have picked a better location than The Wicket in Speightstown. This apartment is spacious, clean, modern and located right on the beach. The beach is very clean and there is shallow waters close to the shore with a small reef a few yards out to snorkel over.

A short walk from the apartment finds you in the town itself with a good variety of bars and restaurants, supermarkets, street grocers, a fish market, a bakers, a bank etc. Speightstown has a character of its own and is closer to a real Bajan experience that you might get in an all inclusive or cruise ship deal. If you want to experience true Barbados, this is where you do it.

A hire car is not essential; we had one for convenience, but the buses are very frequent and run all over the island. By car you can reach an attraction within 20 mins, furthest would be 45 mins away around the Bridgetown / Airport area. Top things to do: A must is the sunset & dinner cruise with Cool Running operating out of Bridgetown (Cool Running provide a door to door minibus service from outside of the apartment too), St Nicholas' Abbey, Flower Caves and the Andromeda Botanical Gardens. Every Friday night Oistins Fish Fry is where the party is: food, drink and music from 6pm til late.

This was a very special and memorable holiday. Can't wait to do it again!
