The owner Robert is very helpful and will reply to your emails in good time, which is always a bonus. He will send you loads of info on Barbados and Sunset Crest, which is very useful.
The condo is near to amenities.
The apartment is dated and in need of a fresh coat of paint throughout, but the kitchen fridge,( but be aware fridge gets extremely hot on the side facing into the kitchen and by the door, as it is in a very tight space) oven,kettle etc are new. The bed is SUPER comfy, we slept very well.
However, our biggest problem with the condo was the fact that it wasn't very clean. Thick layers of dust on every cupboard door, kitchen cupboards made from ply-wood that absorbed smells of cooking fat, so your clean glasses etc, instantly smelled of that when you put them in the cupboard. The pillows were very badly stained under the pillow case. The light bulbs had clearly never been dusted and the dust was burned on to them. The base of the toilet and the corners of the bathroom were filthy. The glass of the sliding doors was dirty, the edge of the doors was filthy, and we could open the doors they were so un oiled. The safe doesn't work nor have the owners replaced it, the old air con controls are just cut off and still in the room. When we arrived the shower was just a trickle of water and coming out of the wall,Sarah, the lady who looks after the property for Robert and Fay, did come and oil the doors, and replaced a completely non non stick pan for us. She also had the shower fixed. Yes, the property was as described, and even seen in a little film, the old fashioned look of the property was never in dispute, but films and pictures don't show dingy paintwork and dirt.
I did email Robert, but he does not take criticism well, ( he will very politely imply that you are just being difficult) and I just gave up in the end. I have attached pictures to justify my report here. I have many more examples, but no more time to add them.
I met some people who had stayed in the apartment before, and they said it didn't used to be dirty, but has always needed a good coat of paint. So it could be that they just need to re-think their cleaning situation. I believe it is their intention to paint the condo this year.
