About Stephanie Crouchman
I have enjoyed many holidays in Barbados since purchasing the apartment, on all my visits I try to keep the apartment looking freshly painted and make sure all is up to date. It is like home from home to me people over the years have been so friendly and I have made good solid friends
Stephanie Crouchman purchased this Apartment in 2002
Why Stephanie Crouchman chose Sunset Crest
This was my late husbands dream and means a great deal to me to be able to carry on the dream
What makes this Apartment unique
The position is amazing you can make it so reasonable should you wish having all facility's in the apartment and supermarkets being so close. On the other hand should you want to spoil yourselves the restaurants so close at hand with amazing views of the Caribbean ocean cannot be beat.

Thank you so much Imelda I am so pleased you enjoyed your stay. The apartment has been updated and a brand new kitchen fited it is more open plan and gives more space to the sitting room area looking out to the terrace and gardens, as you say the apartment is in such a good position and so close to lovely restaurants and beach bars, if you do not want to hire a car there is plenty close at hand. If ever you wish to return it would be lovely to help again. Kind regards Stephanie
It is a lovely little condo but in need of some repairs which was being done the day we left.
The property is lovely but the garden outside our condo is a mess and needs to be cleaned up but the overall area is lovely and we did enjoy all the birds, especially the hummers and blackbirds.. See you soon
Thank you so much for your review and looking after my apartment on your stay, it is great that you had a good time in lovely Barbados, so much so that you are having another long stay again in March / April
We have gardeners every two weeks for the lovely secluded gardens. On your next stay I will get the little strip to the front of my property planted again, the barbados heat can dry it out.
The apartment has been very updated and has a brand new kitchen, open plan and clean, when you open the louvre doors it is lovely looking out to the gardens, relaxing with a cocktail or two in the evening. In the day time relaxing at the Beach House looking over the ocean
Looking forward to your return, it is a great location and so close to all your needs. Kind regards Stephanie

Thank you Grantley for your review.
I am so pleased you enjoyed your stay, Jasintha is a lovely lady and will always help where she can I am so lucky to have her as my house keeper. The apartment as you say is in such a good position, you are so close to all your needs and the beach so close. If I can help for any further stay I would love to, there is always more to see in Barbados and you always get that heat and sunshine.
kind regards Stephanie
Didn't feel safe
Didn't feel safe in this property, Felt very claustrophobic with having to lock gates when sitting on the patio. Cockroach on the kitchen counter, the sitting room was stifling hot no matter how many fans you had on. We moved to a different apartment after a week, at a loss of a lot of money.
Thank you for taking the time for your review
I wonder if this review was written in retaliation, as unfortunately they had damaged the kitchen work top, which is costly and now has to be replaced, also they had a third person sleeping in the apartment without my permission or paid for. When leaving the apartment earlier took the house keys with them that then left me with a security issue as I had no idea who the third person was.
This was the hottest time of the year, but I have air con in the bedroom, which is more than adequate for sleeping, it also has one ceiling fan in the bedroom. In the sitting room area it has two ceiling fans plus three floor fans that can be used in that area or move to wherever you wish.
Please look at my other reviews as we have never had a review like this before.
And thank you
The perfect location
We were very satisfied with our stay at your rental property, just on thing we think would help is an additional air conditioner outside and different front doors to help keep the heat out also the constant getting up to put coins in the AC is an inconvenience may the cost can be incorporated into the rental price. Regards Ron & Pam
Thank you so much for taking the time for your review. I am so pleased you had a great stay. The location is great.
Barbados is a very tropical Island and certain times of the year can get very hot. If you close the windows and door to the bedroom before going to bed it will stay cool for most of the night. It has to be on a meter as guests leave it on during their adsence. I have ceiling fans to both rooms, also three floor fans that can be moved about to wherever you wish. It is a personal choice, you can also put a floor fan beside the bed for added comfort.
I would love to have you stay again, we always love to hear people having a good time in Barbados
kind regards Stephanie
An ideal location
The apartment is in such a good location. Easy to travel on public transport to sandy Lane and Payne’s Bay beaches. 10 minute walk to large local supermarket. The bed is the most comfortable I have ever slept in. Regular visits from housekeeper to check. WiFi connection was excellent. Large fridge with good size top freezer. Good bedroom storage space . Plenty of hot water.Comfortable furniture and pleasant verandah with table and chairs in gated verandah overlooking garden. Beach club membership an added bonus. Film night each week. A 5 minute walk from club to a good sized beach. Lovely pool and loungers and a bar to hand. We spent a wonderful 5 weeks in Holetown and will definitely return.
Thank you so much Pam for taking the time for your review. I am so pleased you enjoyed your stay. The apartment is in such a great location for all your needs and dear Jacintha is so good nothing is too much trouble.
The apartment is very safe as there are bars on the windows and you can padlock the gates to the terrace. In all the years I have owned there has never been any safety issues. The beach House has lovely facility's and a bonus that it looks over the ocean. I love all my returns and make new friends, the locals are friendly and are helpful when they can. The buses are great and reasonable and get you to all parts of the Island should you wish to make your travel around the Island very reasonable, but again you can hire a car and even return to the airport on you return date. If ever you want to return I would love to help if I can. kind regards Stephanie
Taxi's from the airport at the moment charge about 80 BB Dollars to the apartment, in sterling this is about £30.00. The drive is about 50 minutes
The west coast is the most beautiful in Barbados and 15 minutes to the famous Sandy Lane beach. We have a wonderful choice of restaurants and bars one of which is attached to our private members pool with complimentary loungers, the Beach house offering snacks and drinks at lunch time and at night great dining in a lovely atmosphere. Further along we have the famous Tides restaurant, then Zacchios and surf side very reasonable prices also offer happy hour (with satellite TV showing live sports) two great beach bars and a terrific beach where you can hire loungers, jet skis and water skiing.
Holetown is a great place to visit they also have lovely restaurants Italian, Thai and Indian.
If you want to do your own catering there is the local supermarket this has every thing you should possibly want. For the girls lovely boutiques in Chattel Village just minutes away. The apartment is near to Sunset Mall a large duty free store, the coffee shop opposite has free Internet
We now have an amazing shopping mall called Limegrove Very Very high class shopping great bar in the center of the mall great night life with a lovely new cinema this you can easily walk to from the apartment about 15 - 20 minuets walk
If you should want an Island Tour there are company's that do that service. An absolute must see is Hunts Gardens absolutely beautiful gardens with Antony as your host, with classical music running through your stay, I think it is 30.00 BDS per person and well worth a visit
As of January 2018 the super market Massy's has been rebuilt and offers any thing you should need.
There is a mini super market just opposite the apartment just for the essentials. Also a lovely coffee shop just opposite with Internet
