“Best place to stay in Barbados”
Reviewed 22 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

The condo was clean had everything we needed. Great view of the ocean from the balcony. The reef in front of the condo was wonderful lots of fish and turtles. We snorkeled 2 to 3 times a day. We got to see baby turtles hatch just outside the gate of the condos on the beach, someone from the reserve came and we watched her dig them up and put them in a bucket to release later. Location was great close to everything. Don't miss the bar down the beach. We had a few good evening's there. I would defiantly stay here again. Thank you Dayle and George. We also got delayed in leaving by 4 days because of Irma not a problem they accommodated us. It was great vacation. Thank you Dayle, Pat and, George

Thank you Marianne for the lovely review of our home. It means so much to future visitors to read comments from guests who have stayed and who share their experiences....
How wonderful that you saw baby turtles hatch (I have only ever seen it once -- it was a magical moment), and great that someone notified the Barbados Turtle Project to come and collect them for later release !
We were happy to be able to help out during your extra 4 days due to Irma. it's dreadful how those northern islands and Florida suffer from these storms! ---- Barbados is very fortunately positioned to normally escape such devastation .
We look forward to welcoming you back for another Barbados vacation. Thanks again for writing - it is very much appreciated

“Amazing beachside condo with an unbeatable view!!”
Reviewed 18 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

We have just returned from an unforgettable stay at #1 Palm Beach Condominiums!

#1 is a clean and comfortable apartment situated just steps from the beach and a few minutes walk, from the best restaurants and shops in Holetown! The apartment was extremely well kept and had all the towels, linens and appliances to suit our needs.

What really stood out to us was the unbeatable views from the balcony!! #1 is the closest unit to the beach which made for breathtaking and unobstructed views of the water and sunsets. Not only was the location perfect but so were the people.

Pat, the property manager was extremely helpful and Dayle, the owner was always reachable and very attentive to our needs! The locals were very friendly and the activities offered just outside the property were well worth it.

Overall, we had a wonderful time and would not hesitate to recommend this apartment to others. You definitely cannot beat the view, the location and the wonderful hospitality!!

Thank you so much Taylor for taking the time from your very busy schedule to write such a lovely review of our winter home.
We are so glad you both had a great vacation. and we are blessed to have such nice and helpful neighbours like Pat, who are always willing to help our guests in any way they can.
Your remark about the view mimics our own...... it is unbeatable (we know as we have searched the west coast for anywhere similar and from what we can tell, it does not exist! )
Thank you once again for sharing your vacation comments with others, it is very much appreciated.
We look forward to welcoming you both back at any time,
Have a wonderful summer,
Dayle and George

“Beautiful beach side Condo in Holetown”
Reviewed 5 June 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Condo #1 Palm Beach, Holetown is a beautiful property right beside the beach in Holetown. The large balcony has wonderful views over the beach and sea. It is situated in lovely tropical gardens and there is a private pool. The condo consists of a large sitting room/dining room, a very well equipped kitchen, bedroom and bathroom and shower room. There are many fans throughout and air conditioning in the bedroom so it is always cool. There are many bars, restaurants and shops nearby. There is a maid service, a gardener who looks after the garden very well and the Manageress lives on site and is therefore always available for any advice.
We have been staying here for over 20 years and cannot recommend it highly enough.

Dear Fiona,
Thank you so much for taking the time to write us another review of our home..... It is most thoughtful of you to share your insights into condo #1 with others who may be interested in staying there.
We are so fortunate to have our long time Manageress living there - she is such a blessing not only to us - but to our guests as she is always willing to help in anyway she can.
We, along with all the folks at Palm Beach, look forward to welcoming you and your husband back next May
Thanks again for writing such a lovely review for us.
Warmest wishes as always D&G

“LOCATION - LOCATION - LOCATION !!”
Reviewed 20 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016
1
person found this review helpful

We stayed in #1 Condo wanting 17 nights of total relaxation and we got it. This Holetown condo has the best location and view, straight out onto the beach front...and you are into the clear warm sea within seconds of leaving the condo. The apartment is comfortable and has everything you need to enjoy a self-catering holiday. There is a lovely private garden and pool just to the side of the condos. A slight disappointment was that quite a lot of the local bars and restaurants were closed whilst we were there, refurbishing or staff taking a break in anticipation of the start of high season. It is so easy to get a bus to nearby resorts and the locals are friendly and helpful. There is a supermarket just over the road and a cheaper larger one in the town of Fitts, a short bus ride away. The weather was fantastic and the nearby beach and warm sea made this one of our best holidays ever. Thank you Dayle and George ....

Thank you so much for this glowing review - it's so considerate of you to take the time to share your holiday experience with future guests, as it's very reassuring for them to know that our home is as advertised!
Yes Location, location, location, is why we purchased our condo, a real case of "love at first sight" - we knew we'd never find another one like it!
Sorry that some of the restaurants were closed, luckily they don't all close at the same time (but the owners and staff do need time every year for a 'refurb' and a holiday too) so many of them choose this time of year as there are less visitors, however, maybe this will tempt you to return at some later date to sample some of those that you missed this trip? - We will look forward to welcoming you back in the future.
Thanks again for writing - it is most appreciated.

“Beachfront apartment with best view”
Reviewed 30 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016
2
people found this review helpful

My husband and I (50's) stayed in this beachfront apartment for 2 weeks. It was very comfortable and had everything we needed for a self catering holiday. The view from the balcony was absolutely awesome. The view is what sells the apartment. You could hear the gently lapping waves from the bedroom, which was a first for me to fall asleep that way. You could see a fantastic sweep of beach in both directions. The beachfront was lovely, clean white sand and the water was crystal clear, it was very peaceful in June. The position of the apartment was excellent, being only a 5-10 min leisurely walk to the supermarket, restaurants even closer, just outside the gate, and a few minutes to the bus stop to take you north or south. We used the bus quite a bit, it was cheap and easy, but they do drive fast, we didn't mind. The Holetown area is clean and very pleasant, with a small upmarket shopping mall nearby, where there are cafes and restaurants. There are also other shops in the area where the supermarket is located in the same centre and beyond that also, there are lovely painted timber shops with beautiful clothes and souvenirs. So you can easily go for strolls in your own area, if you stay here. There is even a KFC and a petrol station with plenty of essentials if the supermarket is closed. We loved Barbados and would love to come back. The owners were very pleasant and easy to deal with via email, they would answer very promptly. I would definitely recommend the apartment to anyone wanting a casual beachfront holiday in an absolutely beautiful spot.

Thank you Liz - it is very kind of you to share your experience of staying in our home. We're so glad you enjoyed the sound of the sea lapping on the shore - we call it the "sound of Mother Nature breathing"! it's so soothing. Plus our first view from the balcony was an occasion of "Love at First Sight" - and we knew we would never find anything similar -so we were most fortunate to be able to own it.
We will look forward to welcoming you back at some time in the future if you ever make another long trip from Australia. Thank you again for writing this great review and sharing your holiday memories with future guests - It is very much appreciated.
