Golden View Apartment 2
Apartment | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 2
This privately owned spacious one bedroom apartment is recommended for a romantic getaway and sightseeing. It's near the ocean and close to the village. Set in 5 acres of beautiful tropical gardens and there is a 25m swimming pool with sun loungers, umbrellas and a poolside bar and restaurant.
The accommodation is spacious (approx 750 sq.ft.), comfortably furnished and comprises a lounge with dining area and separate fully equipped kitchen. Personally furnished for comfort. It has air conditioning, but we have found the position on the top floor and the clever design of the building means that at night a flow of cool air is available without mechanical assistance.
Breakfasts on the balcony are a wonderful start to the day and watching the sun go down over the sea is a memorable event.
The swimming pool is ideal, the convenience of a small bar/restaurant alongside is a bonus. Shops are within a few minutes walk and access to fine stretches of beach will add just two more minutes.

The St James Parish region
Barbados is the most popular of the Caribbean Islands, and enjoys a year round climate, with daytime temperatures of 27°C to 31°C. Night temperatures hardly vary, with the lowest winter temperatures of 23°C to 25°C.
This small island is packed like a jewel box; take a trip to the East Coast for fabulous rugged scenery on the Atlantic Ocean, visit Harrison's Cave or Sugar Plantation Great Houses. Explore the Flower Forest and Orchid World. There is always something to do in Barbados, which enables you to enjoy the type of holiday to suit your individual taste.
Daytime pursuits can be a leisurely stroll along the fabulous white sand beaches or, for the more energetic, tennis, golf, horse riding and all water sports (scuba diving in the Caribbean is like a huge tropical fish tank), water skiing, para-sailing, deep sea fishing for barracuda, kingfish or the famous Barbadian Flying Fish.
Our West Coast waters are clean, clear and warm - ideal for swimming, snorkeling, scuba diving, and wind surfing. For those less willing to try diving, you can still discover the amazing underwater experience by taking a trip with Atlantis Submarines - http://www.atlantisadventures.com/caribbean.cfm. Or you may just prefer to relax on the beach, enjoying the sun, sand and sights!
Situated in the unique and prestigious Parish of St James on the South West Coast of Barbados,
the local area boasts fabulous beaches washed by the Caribbean Sea and frequented by the rich and famous (there are no private beaches on Barbados), yet these are only five minutes walk from our apartment.
The apartment is situated ten minutes away from Sandy lane golf course, and there are several prestigious hotels along this golden west coast, such as Sandy Lane, Treasure Beach, Tamarind Cove, Discovery Bay, Sandpiper, Colony Club and Coral Reef Club, all of which offer nightly entertainment and welcome visitors for either drinks, a restaurant meal or BBQ accompanied by a flaming limbo floorshow.
Within easy walking distance are 20 restaurants catering to every taste, from fast food to fine dining. Two shopping malls are also located nearby, with convenient banks, a supermarket, post office, pharmacy, department stores, and specialty shops. In addition, there are two Malls and a quaint fully operational Chattel House village retailing local fashion, paintings and artefacts. Public transport is regularly available approx 400yds from the apartments.

"Very comfortable apartment"
Just good things to say about our stay, very comfortable apartment, close to beach, Supermarket and buses (short-cut outlined in the apartment booklet)........it is a must to read for valuable info. Great pool, never a shortage of sun beds. The owners/renters were all very friendly and were a wealth of information regarding places to go and things to see. There is always a Receptionist at the front desk who can arrange for taxis if required and also a good source of information for bus schedules and/ or directions. We stayed in Apt 307 which was on the same floor as the washer/dryers, small library and WIFI room. The room has an air-conditioner which works with tokens however we never needed it. From the balcony you have the sea view in the distance and you can see the cruise ships go by. The balcony looks over the garden which is home to a variety of birds and of course the green monkeys. The kitchen is also equipped with a slow cooker so you can pop your food in and go to the beach and voila your lunch or dinner is prepared. If not, there is also the Chinese restaurant on the premise. Doris and Peter are focused on making your stay comfortable.
Thankyou so much for your review it was lovely to meet you and we are so pleased you enjoyed Barbados
and your stay in 307. Thankyou again for choosing our property.

"One of our best holidays"
We have been coming to Barbados for the last 5 years and we have stayed at Golden View 4 times in 3 different apartments. This apartment on the 3rd floor was the best that we have stayed in and talking to other people at the resort is known to be one of the top apartments, being kept in first class condition by the owners, Doris and Peter, who are resident on site for a large part of the year. Being on the 3rd floor there are wonderful views over the beautiful gardens and the Caribbean sea in the distance and the breeze keeps the apartment beautifully cool, so no need for air conditioning. The apartment is very well furnished and has all you need for a comfortable stay including very comfortable beds. Golden View is one of best condominiums on the island being unique with its superb 25m pool, exceptional gardens and on-site excellent Chinese restaurant.
The balcony is a wonderful place to sit and eat, there are a wide variety of tropical birds that visit the garden and we were lucky enough to see green monkeys looking for their breakfast in the mango trees in the extensive gardens. We stayed for 3 weeks in the apartment and tended to eat in 4 or 5 times a week and found there was everything we needed in the apartment for a very comfortable stay. Eating a meal on the balcony in the evenings, with a nice cool breeze, a lovely view of the garden lit up at night and 23/24 degrees – perfect!
It is only a short walk into the centre of Holetown where there are a range of restaurants and bars to suit all tastes and the supermarket is excellent if you want to cater for yourself. There are plenty of people to chat to round the pool and someone is always sharing their experiences of a restaurant or rum shack so you find out what sort of place will suit you budget and taste. Also on the 3rd floor, is a computer room with a small library and an excellent coin operated launderette for laundry.
We would thoroughly recommend this apartment and will be booking again.

"Very comfortable, clean and well equipped apartment with huge balcony-Fantastic!!"
We had the pleasure of staying here for 4 nights beginning of January. Cant think of anything negative, we moved to this apartment from another in Holetown which was dissapointing, and will do next time we go, if available. Wish we had stayed here all along. The apartment is so comfortable and has everything that you could possibly need for your stay. The owners live on site and are very fastidious in making sure your stay is special. We met them and they are very helpfuland kind. The garden and pool are absolutely stunning, what a place to relax!! Also have a chinese meal in the restaurant or a takeaway, very reasonable prices and one of the best chinese meals i have had. Cant wait to return.

"A most enjoyable holiday in a very comfortable apartment"
We stayed for 2 weeks in this 3rd floor apartment and were very pleased with the accommodation. It was nicely furnished and had all the basic equipment we needed.
The owner, Doris,and her husband Peter were on hand to sort out a couple of minor problems and Peter kindly gave us an escorted tour of Holetown on the first morning.
From the balcony of the apartment we had a lovely view over the extensive gardens and tree tops to the sea which is about a 5 minute walk away. We particularly liked the large swimming pool which was very clean and never crowded.
We ate a few times in the Chinese restaurant on site. We found the food very good and reasonably priced unlike most of the restaurants in Holetown which are quite expensive.
There is a round the clock receptionist who was helpful with taxis and car hire.
We plan to return to Golden View which we felt provided an excellent base for an independent Barbados holiday.
