About Dayle Rasmussen
We were a retired couple who spent our winters here for the past 30 years, I live the rest of the year in Canada now. I 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 I need is close by, including grocery shopping, etc. Restaurants are close by when ever I wish to eat out,and some have delivery and take out - a life style without troubles!
Dayle Rasmussen purchased this Condo in 1989
Why Dayle Rasmussen chose Lascelles
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 I've lived there happily ever since and only return to Canada when the weather warms up!

A perfect relaxing getaway!
If like us you are looking for the perfect spot to relax and unwind then this is definitely the place to go. In fact, it was probably the most relaxing holiday we have had for a very long time. The apartment has everything you could possibly need, we cooked in the apartment for 4 nights and ate on the balcony taking in the amazing vista and awesome sunsets, we swam 3-4 times a day in the ocean (less than 1 minute walk from the apartment) and the lovely pool which is surrounded by tropical gardens with humming birds and mongooses, very amusing to see Pat's cat Whisky play chasing the mongooses! There are numerous bars and restaurants within a 5-10 minute walk and a great supermarket to buy anything you might need. We left feeling totally chilled and relaxed, what more can you ask from a holiday ! Thank you Dayle, George, Pat, Chris, Ros, Julia and not forgetting Whisky!
thank you so much for writing such a lovely review of my home Denise,... I really appreciate the time you've taken to share with others just how unique my home is..... its location. its wonderful newly enlarged beach (thank you Mother Nature) and its proximity to all those places that make a holiday "just right"
My apologies for a tardy response -- but last winter was difficult for me, (loosing my husband)
thank you once again for your kindness, and I look forward to welcoming you back at some time when it's time for another Barbados holiday.... best regards,.Dayle
I have stayed in hotels and apartments all over Barbados and never stayed in the same place twice - but now I’ve found this absolute gem I will never stay anywhere else again. It really is the perfect home from home, in what is possibly the best location in Barbados. A very short walk to shops, bars and restaurants but also tucked away in a quiet corner right on one of the best beaches on the island. There is even a super house reef with resident turtle, stingray and octopus!
The sunsets are incredible and can be watched from the balcony (best view), beach or the very peaceful pool in the beautifully maintained gardens.
The owners and manager could not have been more friendly and helpful, and we are already planning when to return next year.
What a wonderful review of our winter home..... Thank you so much for taking the time to write, and share your holiday experiences with future guests.
It means so much when guests who have stayed in our home can reassure others that it is really a very unique place and the view is incredible....
We also spend many happy hours watching the fabulous sunsets every night, and never of Mother Nature's spectacular light show.
We look forward to welcoming you back next year, so that you can feel that our home is Your home.too.
thanks again for writing - it is very much appreciated.
A fantastic Location
A great service from the owners from initial enquiry to the end of the holiday. The local support team for the Condo are not intrusive but are at hand if required.
The location is superb and we spent many hours enjoying the view from the balcony...
Many great restaurants within minutes walk.
Thank you so much your kindness in taking the time from your busy schedule to write a such a nice review of our winter home.
It is so reassuring for future visitors to hear directly from past guests that the property is as advertised. We are most appreciative of your sharing your holiday experience with others.
We too spend many happy hours on our balcony watching the glorious Bajan sunsets, and the marvelous light show which follows, when Mother Nature turns the sky such wonderful colours before darkness finally falls, and the moon makes a glittering pathway in the sea.
We're so pleased that you enjoyed your holiday in our home, and we look forward to welcoming you back at some future date if another Barbados holiday is on your agenda.
Thank you again for writing - it is very much appreciated.
Was perfect as advertised. Owner went above and beyond to accommodate. Best location on the island n beach access! Thx
Thank you Jeff for sharing your vacation/ honeymoon experience with future guests. We are so glad that you found our website factual as we really believe in "truth in advertising"!
We're delighted that you also feel our location is the best on the island....(that's why we purchased it.... knew we would never find anything better!)
Very pleased to hear that our taxi man was able to meet your flight and get you safely installed in our home.... we are blessed to have such a helpful support team.
Thank you for taking the time from your busy schedule to write this helpful review of our home --- it is much appreciated.
Our Best Wishes for your future life together
Perfect beach front setting with a stunning views
This was a return visit to Palm Beach but our first stay in #1 right on the beach front.
The Condos are perfectly positioned to enjoy the beautiful beach,lovely quiet pool and all Holetown has to offer.
The small reef has created a perfect swimming area and protects the beach with its lovely sandy bays and boardwalks to explore.
The owners are proud to share their "Winter home" and have provided everything necessary for a perfect stay.
Communication was prompt and a pleasure with warm welcomes from Pat and the team as always.
Thank you Pat for all the "extras"it was great to be back!
Thank you Dayle and George for the pleasure of using you home !
What a lovely review of our winter home Jan, thank you for finding the time to share your comments with future guests. It is so reassuring for other visitors to read your impressions of our home and the condo complex. We are so blessed to have Pat and the rest of the "team" to ensure our guests have everything they need to fully enjoy their holiday, even though we are miles away!
So glad you enjoyed the stunning view from our balcony, we still experience that "Ahh" Moment when we see it again, even after all these years!
We, and all the owners, look forward to welcoming you back at some future time for another Barbados stay and in the meantime, thank you once again for writing --- it is very much appreciated.
Dayle and George
#1 is a terrific condo with a spectacular view!!
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 for taking the time out of your extremely busy schedule to write this lovely review of our home.
When we first saw the view many many years ago, we too were convinced that there was not another panorama like it anywhere else.....and we are still, after all these years, awed by the stunning vista.
We are so glad you had an enjoyable vacation, and consider ourselves blessed to have a neighbour like Pat to look out for our guests well being.
We really appreciate your writing this review and look forward to welcoming you back whenever you feel like another Barbados vacation,
Thanks again , and have a wonderful summer.
