“Perfect apartment, great location, loved it!”
Reviewed April 17, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

I absolutely loved it and wished I could have stayed longer. The apartment is great and has everything you need and is nicely decorated, but the real point is the terrace that's made for sunbathing and watching the sun go down over the Caribbean Sea with a rum punch!

Speightstown feels like the "real" Barbados, away from the crowds and the resorts, but with plenty of restaurants and places to go nearby. The beach in front of the apartment is great for floating around to cool off, and to the north you can walk a fair distance too along Haywood's beach to Port St Charles.

Trisha was great and was in contact when I booked and before I arrived with details and useful information. Her housekeeper Marva was also fantastic and couldn't have been more helpful.

If only Barbados wasn't such a long way from Australia I'd be back all the time, but I do hope to visit again!

“beautiful apartment overlooking the sea”
Reviewed January 17, 2015 for a stay in January 2015

This is a very well equipped and delightful apartment. There is a very small road between the apartment block and the sea but from the lovely 3rd floor balcony you are totally unaware of this and only hear the lapping of the waves as you look out to sea. The main living area opens out onto a westerly facing terrace/balcony which provides a great living space which is cool in the morning and great for sunset. The bedrooms are at the back of the apartment so they are cool and quiet. Air conditioning is good but with a nice breeze we only used this at night. Speightstown is small town away from the hustle and bustle of the south coast and therefore not for those seeking a wild nightlife - but it is well placed for all the beaches on the west coast and there are nice restaurants nearby.

Hi Bridget and Graham, I'm so happy that you enjoyed your stay. As you say the only sounds you hear in the apartment are the sounds of the sea. Speightstown is delightful and only a ten minute ride from the busy nightlife of Holetown. I love to be in Speightstown, as it has everything you need for your vacation, yet still very close to the other attractions, including the wild and beautiful East Coast. If you are ever thinking to return and stay at Turtle Beach, you will be more than welcome!!

“We loved our stay here and will be back”
Reviewed June 14, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

person found this review helpful

We have a great week in this lovely apartment. Its location is just wonderful, across a very quiet street to the beach. Just outside of Speightown which we really liked - much much less touristy that Hole Town, but that's what we wanted. Very quiet at night, but again, that was our preference.

The apartment was very clean and Trish was very accommodating. A few small things needed sorting out on arrival but the housekeeper was there to pick things up. All very efficient.

We loved the balcony and the view and felt really at home here. As others have said, it definitely has the feel of someonelses place (photos, lots of personal stuff around). Its not a blank canvass type apartment - a real place and someones real home.

We wanted something a bit more authentic than the tourist locations, but safe, friendly and close to the beach. WE loved it. O and just to mention there is great diving at the Reefers and Wreckers just over the road - I ended up diving really close to two humpback whales - an experience of a lifetime.

So we will be back and suggest you go to!

“A nice appartment but badly managed”
Reviewed March 11, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

person found this review helpful

We had a fabulous holiday in Speightstown. The locals were very friendly, food and rum punch good, and the apartment was very comfortable with a fabulous view.
However, we surprised the owner, Trisha by getting through customs early ..which could explain why we found dirty crockery & cutlery in the kitchen, over ripe bananas in the bread bin and a full dishwasher.
The place was generally grubby and obviously has not been cleaned properly for a long time with the icing on the cake being a used, sticky 'ladies toy' complete with lube left in one of the few drawers available for us to put our clothes in.
Trisha called in on us on our second evening (because she had forgotten her phone charger), and asked how everything was going , we mentioned the above. However she appeared rather uninterested 'this is Barbados what do you expect?' She suggested we should tell the cleaner and get her to redo the apartment, we declined this offer as, it was easy, but irritating to fix and we had done so now , and really, we thought it was her job as the owner to sort out issues with the cleaner, not ours
Whilst we loved the apartment , we got more and more irritated with the management of it.
We did not borrow it from a friendly aunt but paid a good sum to hire it. It was irritating to find most of the draws and cupboards full of "stuff" meaning we had limited storage space. The notes requesting we didn't use this stuff tiresome (although why anyone would want to touch some manky bottles of hairspray, false nails and hair extensions is beyond me) . and really...if it was such a nuisance , why wasn't the stuff left in the locked room downstairs?
Mid week we were horrified to discover a cupboard full of painkillers,well within reach of our 6 year old son.
We were very surprised to find Trisha had let herself into the apartment whilst we were out without letting us know she was going to do so (we know she had as she left us a curt note telling us to turn off the a/c when we were out ) we had forgotten that day.
Everything within the apartment was of very good quality with no expense spared kitting it out, however that was obviously some time ago as the impression we got now was one of neglect, both bathrooms had exposed wires and there did not appear to have been a lot of maintenance for quite a long while.
In all, whilst we had a great holiday and loved the location and design of the apartment we did not feel it was professionally managed or maintained to the standard one would expect at this level.

Well...what can I say....unfortunately some people are never happy., and only ever complain after they receive their security deposit money back.. and never ever complain at the time when asked if all is ok.
Yes., they did arrive early through customs., that was the only surprise as it normally takes several hours., my housekeeper and I were still working on the apartment when they arrived as I had guests just previously checking out.
I can categorically say that the guests comments about cleanliness are absolutely false..
I don't accept small children in my property, something that.seemed to be overlooked.
As regards any comments said guest has referred to, I can only wonder why nothing was said at the time, and only once deposit had been duly returned.
I am able to have access at any time, and did call in advance, both on the telephone and by the doorbell.
I stipulate that to please not abuse the AC system., or excess charges will result in the loss of security deposit., this was not adhered to as ACs on full whilst non occupancy was occurring ., yet I still refunded the deposit.
Unfortunately these guests are looking for accommation way beyond what they wish to pay for.
Barbados is an expensive Caribbean option, my property is very reasonably priced.
They really need to check out other places of a similar prices range...,they would then be truly surprised.
I asked the guest to please write a review, and as he had not complained about one single thing I'm quite shocked that this was the reply.
He was extremely agitated to receive his deposit money back, which I always state will be received within 15 days of departure, he harangued me from day one.., and then posted this review the moment he received it.
You can't please everybody...but both myself and my housekeeper Marva try our best.:)
