The Barbados penthouse in the Plantation House provides you with a very unique Caribbean experience in Playa. It has a great location. You are pretty much a block away from everything: the beach, 5th Avenue, and nightlife. If you are looking for a great breakfast just walk right out front to Imprevist. The details such as the tiles from Merida and all the wood work are great. The terrace gives you beautiful views of the sea and also has a great outdoor shower which we loved using. Francoise really goes out of her way in providing everything you will need for a great beach vacation. She has coolers and beach chairs that you can use. There is a great guidebook that she has created that has all the information for the place along with info for around the area. She also helped to setup our airport transport, which we really appreciated!

A beautiful and unique place in playa. Just a few minutes walk from the beach and all the restaurants. Very safe and peaceful. A big thanks to Virginia the housekeeper who looked after the flat very well!

The apartment was just as described: a quaint, unique apartment in a great location. It is on a safe and quiet block but only a block from either the beach or the bustling Quinta Avenida. Our boys enjoyed having their own mezzanine/room. The a/c worked great, which was important because it was very hot outside. We loved that they had a cleaning person come every few days.
