“Great view, spotlessly clean, spacious, well-appointed, comfortable, peaceful, relaxing and good value for money!”
Reviewed 30 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We agree with Colleen, the February reviewer: it's a great place to stay. Delia's a non-intrusive darling and the cats are an entertaining feature rather then a bother. The Retreat is about as remote from the tourist trail as it can be, perched atop a ridge, high above the Atlantic coast, with cooling breezes and a gorgeous view. We have friends nearby who drove us everywhere but without them we would have hired a car...though without small children we could probably have managed to get around some of the island by trekking on foot, waiting for and travelling by buses and hiring the occasional taxi. The Retreat is on the 'Bajan' side of the island and its residents will tell you where and where not to swim, offer you a lift to church, advise you what's on locally and will welcome you when they see you there.

“Beautiful, secluded retreat”
Reviewed 16 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

This place is wonderful! Delia was a wonderful host- very helpful but not intrusive, and full of good information. She coordinated our arrival with us so she could be there to show us around and give us the key when we arrived, and she was very accommodating when we needed to change our reservation. The apartment was spacious, airy, and bright. The kitchen is fully equipped and great for cooking- we cooked breakfasts and snacks there every day, and we loved sitting on the back porch with our breakfast and coffee looking out on the ocean.

The views are even more breathtaking than can be conveyed in the pictures. There is a farm on the premises, so we got to hang out with some peacocks and chickens, and there are horses right next door. There are also lots of very friendly cats around who would love to be your friend if you'll let them. The gardens are beautiful and there is a delightful breeze coming off the ocean which helps keep the apartment nice and cool (at least, in February when we were there).

It's within walking distance of a few beaches and towns, but there's not too much in the area. So if you're looking for bustle and nightlife and tourists on white sandy beaches, this isn't for you. But if you want breathtaking views, miles of hiking trails, cute little towns and inns to visit, and coral reefs to explore, this is the place to be.
