"Paradies does exist and its in Barbados...!"
Four of us rented Sea Turtle for a bit of pre-Christmas sunshine and it was fantastic. The bungalow has clearly been refurbished to a high standard along with the grace of air con in all the bedrooms. The outside covered seating was perfect for eating and relaxing. Food was easy with a big supermarket just up the road and, as the owners said they would be, our concerns about “no pool” were unfounded. Who indeed needs a pool when the beach (which hardly had any people on it) backs onto the garden and the water is so calm, and so warm. We will definitely be back!

Thank you for your lovely comments. A pool was installed in November 2012.
