“Peaceful oasis with huge balcony”
Reviewed April 6, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

The apartment is located away from the main tourist areas in a secure complex consisting of villas and apartments surrounded by well kept gardens with tennis courts and an air-conditioned gym not to mention the swimming pools.
The top floor apartment overlooks the central pool area and gardens so the view from the enormous balcony is very relaxing. We were lucky enough to see monkeys and humming birds as we sat relaxing. The balcony is a room in itself with 2 sofas, a dining table and chairs and 2 sun loungers. Also drying facilities. The warm sun shines onto it in the early morning but is in the shade from the fierce heat for the rest of the day. A welcome cooling breeze blows from the east straight onto the balcony and through the apartment if the patio doors are open.
There is an enormous bed in the front double bedroom which is next to the shower room.
The rear double bedroom is en-suite and opens onto the balcony getting the early morning sun.
The kitchen is very well equipped including all requisite utensils and crockery, pots and pans for preparation of most meals. A large freezer with ice cube trays. A large fridge - in which you should keep all your open food to avoid ants. A large oven. 4 ring hob. Microwave, kettle, toaster, dishwasher, washing machine and tumble dryer. Not forgetting the coolbags for picnics. So everything you need to self-cater.
The lounge area has a large comfortable corner sofa and a separate easy chair to enjoy Netflix on the TV if spending an evening in. The sports channels also had the World cup T20 cricket on - unlike the BBC.!! WiFi is available throughout the apartment and balcony.
There is also a dining table inside if you prefer a bit more privacy.
Overall the apartment was very spacious for 2 but cosy enough to feel at home. There is a lift if the two flights of stairs are a problem.
I would recommend a car to get about. It would be quite a hike back up the hill with heavy shopping from the Trimart supermarket about a mile down the hill. We found Jordans in Speightstown had more variety and was slightly cheaper.
A car is useful to get to various beaches within the vicinity and also further afield. There is lots to explore on the island using a map and guidebook, the apartment is well situated to explore both the dramatic east coast and calmer west coast. It took about an hour to drive to the south coast.
Jennine the owner was very helpful - booking was very easy and we were given lots of useful information.
Rachelle the housekeeper was available if necessary via the free house phone for any help during the stay. She kept the apartment very clean. There was plenty of spare laundry if required even beach towels.
In all the apartment was a quiet relaxing welcoming "home" a pleasure to come back to after a day sightseeing or sitting on the beach. Or even just for "chilling".
I would certainly recommend it for a quiet peaceful holiday.

We are so pleased you found everything to your liking. No better compliment than having the apt, referred to as "home from home". Thank you. We loved hearing about all the quiet & deserted beaches you found & as you have seen for yourselves, there are some pretty idyllic picture post card beaches out there! Many, many thanks, Jennine & Laurence

“A little bit of paradise”
Reviewed March 11, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

Just returned from the lovely apartment called Brocklestone Hill.So peaceful, comfortable and secure. If you are an early riser you will see monkeys in the garden between 6 and 7 am.but the most amazing spectacle was watching hundreds of turtles hatching on the local Speightstown beach.This happened in the early evening, after dark.We feel so privaledged to have seen this. Would return in a heartbeat.

It is a fantastic sight to see the monkeys arrive on the complex, looking amongst the mango trees for the ripened fruit! Seeing the whole family arrive and to see the babies play fight amongst themselves!

It seems you were again honoured to witness another lovely sight, to watch the baby turtles hatch under the dying sun & race on down to the shoreline, fantastic and thank you for putting this on your review of your stay, many many thanks, Jennine & Laurence

“A Vacation Beyond Vacations”
Reviewed January 18, 2015 for a stay in December 2014

person found this review helpful

Brocklestone was a magnificent place to stay. The views from both back and front of the apartment were magnificent. You can sit outside both back and front to take in the magnificent views. The owner Jennine takes into account everything you will need for your vacation. Get this, even local cell phones where you can just go to the store and top them off and umbrellas provided in case of rain. She even rents a car to you and provide you with the international license. When you are on vacation, no worries is what you need and Jennine provides this. With this kind of service, your vacation will be care free. She also has 2 (two) caretakers of the property that are available if you need them. Both of them provide excellent service. If you cook and don't feel like washing dishes, there is a dishwasher; also, washing machine and dryer. Another excellent treat is the master bedroom opens onto the patio.

Brocklestone is also quiet and peaceful. Additionally, The large patio that looks over the 3 (three) pools is an extension of the house.

Jennine also sends you paperwork that gives you tips and guidelines about the apartment and much more. Next, you will feel safe since this is a secured community with 24-hour guard service. All-in-all, a magnificent vacation. I absolute recommend Brocklestone; forgot to mention, it is nearby to a bakery, a local grocery store and dining. Excellent place to stay. Enjoy!

We have just returned form another fantastic 2 weeks at Brocklestone (Vuemont) Barbados. We fell in love with the location 2 years ago and were quickly reminded how great the apartment, facilities, location and service the owners provided.

Hope to go back soon.

“Fabulous apartment exceeded our expectations.”
Reviewed April 13, 2012 for a stay in March 2012

Set in a quiet location, providing top quality facilities. The apartment is well equipped providing everything you require for the perfect self-catering holiday. It was a pleasure to return there after a day out. Although the location is quiet (relaxing) it is only a 10 minutes drive away from the beach and local town, there is also a small supermarket and a petrol station within a five-minute drive. The absence of air conditioning, although questioned when booking, was not an issue, as the celling fans and the breeze turned out to be a much better alternative. Compliments to the owner, Jennine, who could not have been more helpful. Once again many thanks, and cannot wait to return to both Island and your wonderful home.
