Barbados offers an opportunity to experience a Caribbean lifestyle influenced by its traditional British history.The first settlers arrived in1627, and the island still retains its British Parliamentary system. It has a reliable infrastructure, and offers the comforts and safety of most Western countries.
Since the island is roughly triangular in shape, the 3 coasts offer a totally different ambience. The east coast bordered by the Atlantic ocean, is wild, rugged, beautiful, isolated, and unsuitable for swimming in most areas. The south coast, has heavy surf, and is more industrial, commerical, and has numerous fast food outlets, and local markets. The west coast, known internationally as the Platinum Coast,borders the blue Caribbean Sea, which is normally calm and suitable for all varieties of water sports.
As Barbados lies outside the hurricane belt, usual weather is blue sunny skies and white puffy clouds, normal showers being of short duration. Average daily high 30C. Sea temperature's a constant 80F.

Had a wonderful time
date entered: 10/20/2013 homeowner-added comment: Had a wonderful time in Barbados. It's a beautiful island. Sunsets were remarkable, Pat and Harold were great - in fact, everyone I met was wonderful. Went to Bridgetown, Speightstown and to see the Atlantic. The food was great. I tried several different dishes. I arrived back in Minnesota to beautiful fall colors and brisk fall weather - which was welcome after the heat in Barbados. It was interesting watching the beach work! Thank you guest name: Lynne guest city-state/province: Minn. USA Oct

We had a wonderful time at your winter home
date entered: 07/27/2013 homeowner-added comment: We had a wonderful time at your winter home. We arrived to have Pat inform us that a tropical storm was coming that night. Kind of made us wonder what we were in for,but we had nothing but a rain! Worked for us! We had great weather after that! Vita and Pat were both lovely and very helpful. The girls went surfing. The surf dude even picked us up and brought back for $10 US! They loved it! We went to Oistin fish fry on the bus, the drag show at Raggamuffins and had lots of fun. We could use the beach and water without problem. The erosion is severe however, so the restoration is very necessary. The sand is already starting to fill in between the reef and the shoreline. Thanks again

Yes, the weather could have been a little sunnier but it did not spoil a wonderful break in Barbados. The apartment was great and the maid did a brilliant job. Pat was really helpful and everyone around palm beach were really friendly. We will definitely recommend your place to friends and family. Many thanks Danielle and Paul

Can't beat the location and thre views of the sea
Had a great time at condo #1. As all the previous reviews stated you can't beat the location and views of the sea. We had a great meal our last night in Barbados at the Tides. Also enjoyed a bunch of Holetown dinners and a tour of Harrison's cave. Pat, Helen, Vita and Harold took very good care of us, answering the few questions we had. Thanks again for sharing your home in paradise.

Wonderful facilities, the comfort, and privacy
Everything worked perfect maids, the equipment of your flat, Pat is simply an Angel, ever so ready to help. We are so happy of the fantastic time we had in Holetown we got to see most of the Island since we rented a little car so we were able to go to a different part every day, we eat fantastic fresh fish, avocados, mangos, papayas, bananas, plantins, just great. Beer was good and cold whereever, rum was also good. We could pass the word among our friends because we are totally satisfied and happy of the facilities, the confort, and the privacy of the apartment. guest name: Alfonso Montes guest city-state/province: Stuttgart - Germany

Best Of Barbados Cathy & Tony 2012
We recently stayed at this condo for my 65th birthday celebration. We have stayed in Barbados before, but condo # 1 at Palm Beach condos is very special. It is 10ft from the beach. Has a balcony overlooking the beach for spectacular susets and a view daily of all the water sports available. It sits off the main hwy and is very private and quiet and secluded. The open air combination dining/living room with multiple fans offers nice tropical breezes and the sound of the surf. They have a full kitchen with everything you would need to prepare meals. The bed room has a king size bed with (air Con) for cool, comfortable sleeping. The condo is immaculately cared for and over seen by Pat (whom is invaluable for all your questions about your stay). It is conveniently located with in walking distance to grocery store, tasty restaurants, bars and gift shopping. Walks along the beach are relaxing and there are many places to stop for drinks or food. The bus is nearby to take you any place around the island or renting a car was very easy with delivery to your door. There is a fresh water pool also for those that don't like the ocean or just want a quiet place to cool off. There is horseback riding on the beach available. We had a spectacular vacation at condo # 1 and whenever we return we will certainly be requesting to stay here.

Owner response: Dear Cathy and Tony, Thank you so very much for taking the trouble to write this glowing review for us. It is most appreciated. We are both so pleased that your special birthday vacation was a success - specially after the troubles you had prior to leaving your home with Tony's fall to contend with. This is really very very kind of you, as other inquirers want to know the honest truth - and they can feel reassured that the owners are not misrepresenting their home. I'm sure Pat joins with us in hoping that Tony will be well soon and that we can welcome you back to our Palm Beach home. Thanks once again. Dayle and George

Great 25th Anniversary holiday
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in your condo. It was very comfortable and in an ideal location. The other residents had balcony envy as they saw us enjoying our gin and tonics on the balcony at sunset! Pat was very helpful in sorting things out for us and Vita kept everything clean and tidy. Harold was also a great taxi driver. Everyone we met was polite and friendly. We had some great meals locally, with the Beach House, the Lone Star and the Fish Pot being our favourites.Many thanks once again for everything and we certainly hope to return some day.

we were able to touch paradise for a moment
There is not a word in the English dictionary that explains the emotions that are running rampant through our minds of the experiences that we as a family had in condo 1. We were able to touch paradise for a moment and then had to let go. The picture that were taken do not do the memories justice. Thank you so much for sharing that part of the world with us. I am looking in to are finances right now so that I can book condo 1 for next year and look forward to a smoother transaction than this previous one. guest city-state/province: Tenn. USA

About the owner: We are a retired couple who have been spending our winters here for the past 20 years, we live the rest of the year in Canada. We love Barbados, the friendly people, the great climate, ('hurricanes hardly happen' - last one was more than 50 years ago) - the ease of living here. Everything we need is close by, including gourmet take out, home baked bread, croissants etc. Restaurants when ever we wish to eat out, - a life style without troubles!
Why the Owner Chose Holetown:
Purchasing this condo was a 'love at first sight' property - fabulous panoramic view, easy walkable proximity to everything,shops,restaurants,beach, on our doorstep, garden,pool- good security, good island infrastructure, and drinkable water out of the tap!! stable economy and reliable banking, friendly people, -a unique, once in a lifetime opportunity! We'd been staying in hotels on the island since 1975, and came to realize that there was no other place on earth which offered all that Barbados could provide. It seemed beyond crazy to ignore the once in a once in a lifetime opportunity that came along when we found our condo winter home. We realized that if we didn't purchase it there and then, we would regret it for the rest of our lives! So we've live there happily ever since and only return to Canada when the weather warms up!
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Easy access (4 min. walk)to stores, bars, restuarants, banks, piano bar, etc.- NOT on the main road so NO constant traffic noise - Instant access to the beach - which is only 10 feet away, I walk 4 miles on the beach every morning! - garden with pool plus sun and shade with trees,flowers, umbrellas, garden furniture. - Safety. - Easy access (4 min. walk) bank, to bus into city, or taxis, or car hire. Supermarket will even deliver groceries.
