Being here was the safest I have ever felt in an Airbnb, on any trip, in any country. Jan and her husband are very responsive and super friendly - Jan gave us great tips and even had our fridge pre-stocked to get us through the first day so we could rest after traveling without getting groceries! The location is *perfect*. The home ia so close to Speightstown, where I walked every day (5 mins to the beach, 10-15 mins to the museum, art gallery, grocery store, and all the shops in town) while also being in a quiet neighborhood. While there are other tenants in the home, we never saw or heard them so it's still pretty private. I had a great time, felt safe and secure the whole time (even while traveling through town alone!) and my family said this was the best trip we've taken ever. Thank you for the immense level of comfort you provided us with! I will definitely be returning on a solo trip next :)
Had a great time at the Sungold house! Jan was an amazing host and she was very helpful in suggesting places to go. Also, do yourself a favor and get some breakfast made by her staff! It was so good! Gave us joy to eat some nice salt-fish and bake, plaintain, and fishcakes! When we come back down and can't stay with family we will definitely be heading back to Sungold!
My wife and I and our two elderly Mums were delighted with the warm welcome Jan and Gary greeted us with. The three bedroom apartment was extremely spacious and beautifully furnished. It was just five minutes walk to the most gorgeous beach and ten minutes to the town. The local supermarkets were happy to run us home with the shopping. The pool was very welcome when we stopped at home for a sunbathe. Jan was the perfect host, she sorted a wheelchair for us when my Mum struggled to walk due to an old injury, she also cooked a most delicious authentic meal for us and made us feel nothing was too much trouble, she just wanted to ensure we had a great time. The high quality air conditioning in the bedrooms was very welcome as was the excellent cleaning service Nancy provided. I am sure we will return.
This is a tough review to write as I don't know where to start. The house is perfect. So clean, all the amenities you require, short walk to the best beach on the island, short walk to Speightstown for everything you need. Air works great in apartment, wifi was perfect and great to have a selection on the TV of so many networks. Beds are very comfortable, the shower has great pressure and the entire house is very roomy. Nice to have the pool just outside the door and great that the pool is well maintained. But the highlight of this home is the hospitality extended by Jan and Gary. They arrange a taxi to meet you at the airport if requested, have some wonderful staples in the apartment to get you started (we stayed for 4 weeks), helped us out with a couple big grocery orders and they were the best tour guides you could ask for. They are such kind, generous people and they make all their guests feel very special. I felt as though we went to Barbados knowing we would meet our hosts but left feeling we made 2 new special friends. I would highly recommend Sungold House and I definitely wish to return for a longer stay and bring my children and grandchildren to share this amazing experience. Thank you Jan and Gary for the perfect get a way!! .
Great place to stay with all what you will need for a comfortable and relaxing holidays. The apartment was spotless clean and we were welcomed with icy cold beer and supplies of milk, water and essential which was a very nice gesture from our host. Jan is an amazing person, friendly and kind and there for her guests if needed. The house is located in quiet area walking distance to the beach and Speightstown; the swimming pool is big enough for children to play in and adults to have a cooling swim, with pool chairs to relax on; there is plenty of space to hang your washing on (yes there is a access to washing machine so no need to pack too many clothes). The apartment has aircon in the bedroom and cooling fan in the living room, own privet entry door and cooking facilities with gas oven/cooker and microwave, large fridge/freezer, kettle and toaster; the bathroom has large walk in shower and living room sitting area with sofa and armchair.. perfect for a couple. We would definitely recommend Jan's place and will look to come back in the future.
Jan and Gary are wonderful hosts. It is so obvious that they love people and the wonderful island of Barbados. They made me feel welcomed and shared their time and friends! A big thank you!
