My wife and I spent four wonderful weeks at 405 Golden View in the month of May.2014.
We had a fantastic holiday and met up with the owners Doris and Peter who are resident there part of the year. This apt on the fourth floor had just had a refurbished balcony with two settees a table and four chairs. We enjoyed breakfasts on the balcony watching the monkeys come in every morning for their breakfast of mangoes. The views to the sea are lovely with lots of tropical birds. In the evenings we sat and watched the bats catching insects. Fascinating.
This is a tropical garden with an extra large swimming pool, lots of sun beds available and you don’t have to get up at 7am to reserve your spot, you can always find your place in the sun or under a tree in the shade.
The apartment is spotlessly clean and has everything you could possibly need.
The beds are comfortable and as this apartment is on the fourth floor you do not need the air conditioning because there is a flow of air through the apartment.
We did not need a car as there are frequent public transport 400 metres from the apartment near the fabulous beaches and the Boardwalk at Holetown.
The apartment is near the Limegrove lifestyle centre and there is a choice of restaurants within easy walking distance from fast food to fine dining but we enjoyed the Chinese restaurant in Golden View who also do a takeaway service.
The apartment has satellite TV.CD.radio and DVD with discs for that quiet night in.
The 24 hour security in Golden View is an added bonus.
Whatever you do you must check Doris’s notes in the apartment there are all the local recommendations of where to eat and where to go.
We enjoyed the holiday so much we have booked to return in 2015.
