“Highly Recommended” What a fantastic apartment. My wife and I stayed for a week on our 'Baby Moon', and thoroughly enjoyed both the apartment and the location. The apartment is directly overlooking Turtle Beach, a wonderfully quiet & clean small beach which we had to ourselves most mornings. Speightstown is a very quaint little town, with a local feel to it which allows you to experience the 'real' Barbados, very unlike most resort towns on the west coast.
The apartment location is just slightly out of town; only a few minutes walk but enough to ensure a quiet and peaceful stay. There are several restaurants close by; I would recommend 'Val's Place', for tasty home cooked food and to meet local people.
The apartment is very tastefully decorated, and contains many of Trisha's own furnishings and belongings. This gives the place a lovely homely feel, in comparison to that of many blandly decorated rentals.
There is a beautiful private sun terrace with sea view to spend time outside, a very comfortable lounge room, and two cool and fabulously opulent bedrooms.
The television is new and large, with a plentiful range of DVDs to watch, which we did enjoy as we had a few evenings in, due to my wife's pregnancy.
I'd like to thank Trisha for a wonderful stay, and Velda for ensuring the apartment was spotlessly clean throughout our stay. Both Trisha and Velda were very helpful pre-visit, and also providing information during our stay.
I loved the American style ice making fridge, and powerful showers! All the white goods, fixtures and fittings worked perfectly during our visit.
I would highly recommend a stay at Turtle Beach. We have now stayed at quite a few apartments in Barbados, and this one stands head and shoulders above the rest. Thanks again Velda and Trisha!

“Very comfortable apartment, lots to do nearby” We enjoyed our week in August. The apartement is very comfortable - with air con that can be controlled separately in each room. The apartment is well equiped, and David generously provided a "welcome" pack of groceries. The furnishings are high quality. The activities were a real bonus - free tennis, pools, and a great beach club about 5 minutes' drive away. Also within 5-10 minutes' drive are a wide range of restaurants. I would recommend this apartment without hesitation.
“Better then Expected” We absolutely loved our stay at Smugglers. We had high expectations as Yvonne from Exceptional Villas had told us it was lovely but this villa was way nicer then we were expecting. The housekeeper and the chef were excellent and the view from the terrace and our master bedroom were to die for. The beach at Payne's Bay is also gorgeous. It was totally pristine and calm all the time. One of the days we even swam from the beach and swam with the turtles that are located just off shore. The beach was sometimes busy but not right in front of Smugglers. We had it more or less to ourselves. I hope we will be back soon.
“We had a Wonderful Stay” We have just returned from Barbados and has a fabulous two weeks with our extended family in Smugglers. It was everything that Yvonne from Exceptional Villas mentioned and more. The location was superb, the views are incredible and my parents loved the fact that their bedroom had the most incredible view. Our kids swam everyday with the turtles. We went on the submarine one morning and also went horse riding on the west coast which was stunning. We loved it all and cannot wait to go back.
