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.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1989

                  About the owner: We are a retired couple who have been spending our winters here for the past 26 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 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.
