Have just returned from a wonderful stay with the fantastically hospitable Barbara and Desmond Braithwaite.
Our apartment was comfortable, stylish and fully equipped. Choice of sun or shade at the pool and a large barbecue. We stayed in both apartments as a family and benefitted from the run of the whole of Barbara's beautiful garden which also hosted humming birds and butterflies aplenty.
10 minutes walk/2 minutes drive from all the attractions of Holetown our uphill location provided a welcome breeze.
Barbara and Desmond are available but unobtrusive...always on hand if needed. An added attraction for me were the vigilant (protective but docile) Beanie and Sheba who add to the feeling of security and also ensure no pesky monkeys invade our little oasis....they have their own self contained area.
A wonderful relaxing experience.....I'll be back!!

What can I say......Barbara and Desmond are two of the happiest friendly people we have ever met. Nothing was too much trouble and we enjoyed a night with them sat outside drinking too much rum!! Their apartment is just wonderful, has everything you need. Was so nice to have a washing machine and tumble dryer,this has meant I came home with a clean case of clothes!!
From start to finish of the booking Barbara always replied to my emails promptly. She picked us up from the airport and even provided us with a few basic essentials in the fridge.
The WI-FI was a godsend especially with two love sick teenagers!!
If you are thinking of booking here....DO IT...... You won't be disappointed.

“Fantastic stay”
Reviewed 14 January 2013 for a stay in November 2012

We stayed for 2 weeks at Diamond Oasis and enjoyed every minute. Barbara collected us from the airport and showed us the wonderful property...it was spotless, the aircon was very welcoming it was very well equipped and spacious. The pool was a great luxury and we spent many happy hours making the most of it! It is well situated on the west coast within easy reach of holetown and mullins etc. barbara and desmond were perfect hosts and make us all very welcome. We would return in a heart beat to this wonderful gem. We have many happy memories.
