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.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
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

Thank you so much Ian for choosing my apartment and it is so good to hear you had a great stay.
I am so lucky to have such a great house keeper Jacintha I have had her for many years and she is a god send nothing is too much trouble for her and very professional. The apartment is in a great location and so close to all your needs. It sounds as if you had a peaceful stay just enjoying that Barbados sunshine. The TV should have been good as I put in cable TV and having the Internet which some travelers do want.
I would love to have you stay again should you ever return
Confortable, cozy and great location
The unit was very clean and had everything we needed for a wonderful two week vacation. It was bright and cheery. Comfortable bed and nice furnishings. If you enjoy walking, all the amenities are with in a 10 minute walk to the grocery store, restaurants, beach and pool. Having access to the Beach House swimming pool was wonderful and a real perk. We met so many friendly people at the pool side. On first arrival, the exterior of the complex needs some paint and power washing (tlc). Once you got past that, the unit #5 was great. We enjoyed eating out on the outdoor patio. The other thing that we wished we had were beach chairs. There were loungers but too heavy to carry to the beach. The housekeeper, Jacintha, was very pleasant and helpful, meeting us at the unit when we arrived and arranging our return taxi to the airport. In all, the unit met our needs and we were not disappointed in our accommodation.
Thank so much for posting your review, and so nice to know you had a good stay.
Barbados is so special and a great destination. The Beach House facilitys are so close the ocean and the apartment. You have full use of comfortable beach loungers by the pool and a lovely cocktail bar, plus that georgious swimming pool.
It is a very friendly Island. So pleased you looked after the apartment and enjoyed the furnishings this is something I always update and decorate on my stays to keep it bright and clean. Jacintha my house keeper keeps it clean and tiddy, also will help where she can. If ever you should want to return there is always so much more with Barbados
kind regards Stephanie
Lovely clean well equipped apartment in the best location walking distance to everything you need, either do the expensive restaurants or great if your on a budget, supermarket 2 mins away , bus stop 1 min away, coffee shop 30seconds away. Beach and pool literally across the road, went for a week and did very little but sunbathe , Jacintha is lovely and very helpful and a asset to the apartment, a pleasure doing business with the owner, very simply and straightforward to book.Will definitely return.
Thank you so much Adam, so pleased you had a great stay, hope on your next visit you can have a longer stay, there is always so much to come back to.
Hunts gardens is a lovely place to visit, it is magical with classical music playing as you move around the tropical gardens, with a pit stop for rum.
First and second street is very close by with plenty of restaurants to try, just opposite Lime Grove. The supermarket close by Massy has all your needs should you want to cook for yourselves, but you cannot beat breakfast on the beach at Surf Side.
I am very lucky to have such a lovely house keeper Jacintha, she is always so helpful.
If Jacintha and myself can help again I would love to should you return
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
