The open plan living area has a kitchen which is furnished with an electric cooker, microwave, fridge, toaster and kettle; it is well-equipped with crockery, pots and pans plus a coffe-maker for your morning beverage.

Smoking is allowed outside but not in the apartment - this is a Barbados Government ruling.
