About Christopher Gammons
British. Visitor to Barbados for over 30 years. Fantastic place to be be with family and friends whilst enjoying this beautiful island.
Christopher Gammons purchased this Apartment in 2007
Why Christopher Gammons chose Sunset Crest
We offer a good standard of accommodation in a great location with 24 hour security. Within a quiet area but within minutes to the beach, restaurants and all amenities . A large new Massy Supermarket was completed November 2017 and a 24 hour medical centre is 400 yards away. Whilst having a car would be beneficial for visiting other places on the island it is not necessary as most amenities are within walking distance. Alternatively take a trip on a local bus along the beautiful west coast an experience not to be missed. Each journey cost BDS$ 2 regardless of distance. www.babyagogo.net is a company on the island that can offer the hire of travel cot, car seat, strollers and other items for families rental fees apply. Please see video at the bottom of the page for a tour of apartment.
What makes this Apartment unique
Our apartment offers comfortable, clean, secure accommodation at an affordable price in a beautiful tropical location yet only a short walk to all amenities. We fell in love with the view from our apartment, the colours from hibiscus flowers in the garden the visit's from the colourful humming birds . Watching monkey's taking an early morning stroll along the perimeter fence whilst having breakfast on the balcony. What more would you want other than a dip in the pool. Please see video at the bottom of the page for a tour of the apartment.
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
We had a fantastic time and the accommodation was great and very true to the listing. The hosts were really prompt in communication and helpful with pre-arrival info. On arrival we were informed of some upgrade work that was being carried out which we hadn't been informed of and necessitated the covering of the air con and apartment door, which again wasn't communicated. On return home we found an email from the owners to explain and the disruption to us was minimal. The swimming pool was a good size and the whole complex was very peaceful and quiet. The location suited us perfectly and it was great to be able to self-cater as Bajan restaurants can be a little overpriced. Beaches were reached in minutes and there is fantastic snorkelling nearby , from every beach within reach. The local supermarket is an easy walk away as it the bus stop to access the rest of the island and local bars and restaurants. We would not hesitate to return.
We are pleased you enjoyed our apartment and your stay in Barbados, Barbados is a great island.
We are sorry for the disruption you had whilst the floor covering in the corridors was being replaced but pleased it only had minimal affect on you both. Care is taken to carry out any work at Golden View in low season and with an aim to keep disruption to a minimum.
We would be happy to have you as return customers.

Enjoyable stay, room was comfortable, good access to amenities, however, whilst it stated that the linens would have been washed/cleaned at least once, this was never done but we did it ourselves.
The only other comment is access to WIFI in the room, as there was limited privacy in the lobby or other areas where we could have a WiFi signal, challenging to have a personal conversation with other guests huddled in the lobby area, or in the hallways, library as well as the quiet time, it was a bit inconvenient to make a WiFi call. Apart from that, comfortable stay. I would book again
The apartment is exactly as represented in pictures and video, and has everything you need for a good vacation. The owner's responded to questions promptly and dealt with financial transactions professionally. Wifi access by the pool and in the lobby was good, and if you hold your phone over the railing on the balcony you can also get a decent connection. (Clearly I need to learn how to disconnect during my vacation)
While older, the building, pool and grounds are well-maintained and staff are very helpful. Monkeys made an appearance most mornings. The property is ideally located a short walk from the Massy Store and a slightly longer walk to the waterfront.The beaches and the local restaurants are exceptional.
Overall, we highly recommend this property.
I'm pleased you enjoyed Barbados and found that the apartment and location was ideal for your stay.
Wonderful stay in lovely apartment
Firstly, the owner of this apartment is trustworthy, honest and az pleasure to deal with. When we had a minor problem with the television, she went out of her way to get it sorted out even though she was in the UK at the time. She reponded quickly to all correspondence.
The beds are comfortable, the apartment is clean, it is good value and includes air cobditioning which is often a major extra expense.
Were pleased you had a great return stay in our apartment. We were sorry there was a problem with the TV but we were pleased to get it sorted as soon as we could. We aim to offer a comfortable and clean apartment in which we think is a lovely location on the beautiful island of Barbados.

Lovely peaceful stay
What more can I say other than that which I have written before. Comfortable apartment in a great location. So peaceful with thoughtful guests who respect the rights of others when on vacation. No noisy revellers, no idiots jumping in the pool, no loud thumping music. Well equipped apartment with everything you can need for a relaxing holiday.
Lovely well maintained gardens and pool.
Good value for money. Seeing the odd monkey was quite enchanting. Very mature trees and foliage and extremely well maintained. Helpful staff on reception. The pool was always immaculate. So were all the public areas. 10 min stroll to the main road where there are restaurants and bars. Plenty of buses going into Bridgetown and fares are so cheap and a great experience. Reggae music blaring, packed with locals, driver stopping to replenish his Banks beer at rum shop - quite quirky.
We are delighted you enjoyed Barbados and the lovely tropical setting at Golden View.
