Golden Anchorage at 8 Flamboyant Avenue in Holetown, Barbados is one of dozens of little condos rented out by owners. This particular one was managed by Tina, who checked in as soon as we arrived and made calls throughout our stay. The little apartment is all a couple needs if you are on a budget and don't mind cooking your own meals. The SuperCentre is close by and there are lots of restaurants if you get tired of cooking. There is a fruit and vegetable stand right at the end of Flamboyant Avenue too. Also, about 50 steps away is a 24 hour medical centre. We walked to the beach where you can just sit, swim or take boat rides, do pretty much anything really. This little apartment is on the bus route too, and Barbados is really easy to get around. The people are very friendly and will help you find your way. There are also enough buses. Most attractions will send a van to pick you up.
Golden Anchorage supplies a driver to pick you up at the airport, and take you back for an extra charge. We thought this was a very good idea. Everything in the apartment was clean and there were lots of towels. Each week our sheets and towels were laundered and they smelled so good! Each morning at 6, we took our coffee outside on the little gated porch, from where we watched lots of birds and smelled the lovely fragrances of the abundant flowers.
Just a short walk up the street and the italia Cafe, there is free WIFI.
You can use the Beach House Pool and tennis Courts too.
