Both The Penthouse and The Lookout are beautifully kept by our housekeepers Kathy and Rose. One of them will visit you three times per week to clean and tidy. All the fixtures and fittings, linens etc are of excellent quality and both properties are beautifully furnished throughout.

The kitchens are fully equipped and standards are high. Tapwater is excellent to drink. All towels, including beach towels are provided as are hairdryers in each room.

All the bedrooms have ensuite bathrooms, fans and air-conditioning. We ask you to help us support energy conservation on the island by only using air-conditioning in occupied rooms, with the doors and windows closed, and remember to turn off fans and lights.

All rooms have a sea view from the room itself or the terrace they lead onto.

As part of our Concierge Schooner Bay help - If you wish we can arrange for a car to meet you at the airport and transfer you to Schooner Bay (approx 45 minutes). The keys to the apartment will be handed to you on arrival and you will find everything ready for you to kick off your shoes and relax. Our property manager Fiona Jones will be in touch with you in the first day or two to check that you are comfortable and answer any queries. You will also find a welcome information pack and other local magazines etc., to keep you fully informed of all Barbados has to offer.

Free Wifi is available in both our apartments. All telephone calls within the island are free. Our telephones will receive incoming international calls but for outgoing international calls a mobile phone will be needed, reception is good.

The freshwater swimming pool at Schooner Bay is large and beautifully shaped. There is a beach hut with drinking water available and lock up boxes should you wish to put valuables inside whilst on the beach.

In addition to your private rooftop spa pool there is a Jacuzzi next to the swimming pool. You will find sunchairs on your roof, and also sunloungers and parasols by the pool and on the beach.

Schooner Bay has beautiful gardens which are floodlit at night and ample parking space. There is a small gym and library.

Access between buildings and to the beach is by means of a small fob which can be clipped to your clothing ensuring maximum security.

There is a coral reef immediately outside our properties and the beach becomes progressively sandy just a few yards further into the bay - thus we have excellent opportunities for snorkelling, as well as a delightful long sandy bay with fabulous safe swimming.

The beachfront location is superb. We also enjoy being within such easy reach of Speightstown which has variety of shops including a supermarket, banks, chemist and a good art gallery. As well as several little bars and places to eat, the orange grocery store is useful and we have The Arlington Museum on our doorstep. Speightstown is small and undeveloped - not a bit "touristy" and it is a joy to stroll down the road to buy a pineapple or mangoes from the locals stalls in the street. (A more sophisticated supermarket is just down the road at Holetown).
