    Great vacation !

    We thoroughly enjoyed the stay at Rodney's place in Barbados. Condo had great layout, was super clean, quiet, had a well stocked kitchen and amazing view. Pool side was nice (people are friendly but mind their own business which was awesome). There is a great little restaurant on the property that has good food and is really convenient for a casual meal. Rodney was amazing host and we can't say enough about him. Tons of communication in advance. Helped guide us on everything from restaurants to car rental companies and was very accessible when we were there as well. Really great host that made the trip easy and fun. Cheers and thanks.

    Great 3 bedroom condo . Rodney was an amazing host . Providing great tips on restaurants, excursions , taxis and any questions. The condo is clean and provided everything that our family needed . Pins coladas on the first day by the pool and great restaurants for the rest of the stay made it a great vacation.

    Beyond Expecation

    Extraordinary island, extraordinary apartment, and a most extraordinary host. My wife and I flew from the States to this sanctuary on March 1st. Upon our arrival, Rodney met us at his penthouse apartment and cared for us like it was a 5-Star resort. Inside we were greeted with the best the island has to offer; it’s best chocolate, bread, coffee, rum, and an assortment of drinks and other edibles. The apartment was comfortable, spacious, and extremely well appointed. Every room had fresh flowers from the island that were replaced weekly. My wife and I travel often using Home Away and AirBnB hosts. One of my pet peeves is when we have to supply the entire apartment with the necessities such as wash soap, toilet paper, etc. Rodney had everything available in duplicate. Even when we purchased something we thought we needed, we found the same product available somewhere in the apartment. Rodney doesn’t miss anything. He made every one of our dinner reservations at the best restaurants. Even when we procrastinated, he found us table. He arranged all of our transportation with Derek Skeete, a taxi driver (if Derek had a website I could write a book regarding his efforts, service, and care). When the washer stopped working, Rodney had people there the next day to fix it. Nothing was difficult and we were never inconvenienced. The view, the pool and the people at Beach View were friendly and exceptional. My wife and I planned this trip for 1 ½ years to stay for a month and we had to leave early due to the coronavirus pandemic. Rodney and I had long talks regarding how the pandemic would affect the island. He was more worried about his friends and the island as a whole than he was himself though he too would experience the wrath of this pandemic. When my wife and I were discussing leaving, Rodney offered to make sure we would be housed if we couldn’t get home (think about that…he knew us for a few weeks and he was willing to make sure we were cared for). I want everyone reading this review to plan a stay with Rodney Arthur and the people of Barbados. In light of the world chaos around us, I couldn’t have been more impressed with how Rodney orchestrated our stay. My wife emphatically stated….”we get a do over”. Choose Rodney.

    10 Stars for #309 Beach View

    This exceptional property was made even more exceptional with having Superhost Rodney catering to your every wish. The apartment is beautiful with a very well equipped kitchen. Paynes Bay is lovely and so very convenient to many activities. If you are going to Barbados you certainly need to consider staying at #309 Beach View. Believe me when I say, you won’t be sorry.

    It's a perfect 10

    We had the most fantastic time at apartment 309. Rodney is definitely the perfect superhost. Due to Covid we have had to carry this holiday over from last year and Rodney was constantly in touch with us over the last 18 months and he fully prepared us on the protocols before our arrival. The penthouse is spacious with an amazing outdoor living room and a great view. It is fully equipped in every area - especially in the kitchen and an amazing range of toiletries in the bathrooms. The beds are extremely comfortable. Rodney is a very friendly host with a wealth of local knowledge. He never failed to get us booked into the restaurants & trips we wanted. The Bay View complex is lovely with 3 pools and all the staff made us feel welcome. Whilst we were there, it was our daughter's ( Ella ) 18th birthday - what better place to celebrate it . Rodney booked us on a Cool Running's catamaran trip which was great and even managed to rustle up a bottle of pink fizz and a card for her. Many thanks Rodney. We had some memorable times and meals at the Seashed Beach Bar , Nishi restaurant in Holetown and Pier One at the yacht club in Port St Charles. We also enjoyed the cocktails at the Drift Ocean Terrace in Holetown and dining out at several other restaurants. Barbados is a fantastic destination for a holiday and we cannot recommend Rodney and penthouse 309 highly enough. Everybody is extremely friendly. Thank you Rodney & Barbados for a great time. We hope to see you again, very soon Rodney.

    Perfection - Magical beyond Words - Penthouse 309 and The Legend that is called Rodney

    It’s hard to put into words how magical our experience was in Barbados at Penthouse 309 in the Beach View hotel with Rodney as our host. This was a holiday when all the vital ingredients came together to create memories that will last forever. The ingredients: Barbados - simply paradise! Beach View - Such a great place. The pools are amazing. Everything is so very clean. The staff are incredibly friendly. The facilities are exceptional. Incredible views from all angles. Trust me when I say that you can pay 3 times as much and you won’t get half the quality. Penthouse 309 - this is the start of the special, secret ingredients which made this trip so special. The penthouse is simply amazing. So very beautiful in its decor - modern and sleek. From a massive curved screen TV (with Netflix etc) to every kitchen facility you could dream of, the quality is outstanding. The beds are so comfortable along with the linen. Each of the 3 bedrooms are so spacious The color scheme and furnishings are wonderful. It felt instantly like a home from home. The balcony and the views are beyond spectacular - trust me, you won’t forget the first time you see the ocean after opening the large patio doors. It was a pleasure to wake up every morning to that view and a delight to watch the mind blowing sunsets Rodney - This is the man who makes all the above come together. This man is unlike anyone you will EVER deal with in any realm of hospitality. A true hero. A gentlemen beyond words. Such a talent. Trust me - I run a property management company and I know detail and great great people! This is a man who cares so so deeply about his guests and strives for perfection in every single area of what he does. This eye for care & detail was felt during every second of our trip. The penthouse for example is looked after so meticulously by Rodney - it’s as if he’s foreseen every possible want or desire you may have. It’s amazing really - only a pure talent would be able to do as he does. For over a year before the trip, Rodney was in touch offering kind advise and help. During the trip, every single detail was organised perfectly by Rodney. From all our restaurant bookings (and changes - sorry Rodney!), activities, car hire, what beach to go to daily (!) and just priceless advise on how to navigate the island. We are truly grateful for all his help - life is about creating memories and Rodney has been instrumental in making these memories so special. Thank you!!!!!!

    Perfect stay in ideal location

    We are a family of 2 adults and 3 children and I would highly recommend staying in Apt 309. From the moment we booked Rodney (our host) contacted us to see if he could help with anything and nothing was too much trouble. He was an excellent host with great restaurant recommendations and helped us with our airport transfers and car hire. The apartment is perfectly located with access to a lovely pool and the beach - ideal for adults and children - and there is also a restaurant and beauty centre in the hotel complex for the adults to relax too! The apartment is maintained to a very high standard with all the appliances that you will need for a weeks stay. Overall, I could not fault my stay and would highly recommend Apt 309 to anyone who wants and lovely place to stay.

    West coast gem

    Rodney was great to deal with, he met us when we arrived and kept in contact throughout our stay. Apartment is a home decorators dream, well set-up and very fashionable. Location on the west coast in fantastic, a 5 minute bus ride into Holetown with buses every 5 minutes or so. Lots of restaurants in Holetown, or the Cliff across the road.

    Beyond Expectations!

    The first thing that attracted us to the property were the pictures in the property profile. Let me tell you that your jaw will literally drop when you see Penthouse 309 in person. I guarantee you will have one of the best experiences EVER! First, the owner and Superhost Rodney, is godsent. We now consider him part of our family! He responded to every single request and question as we were planning our trip and all requests while on the island. We were traveling with our mothers and wanted to make this an unforgettable time for them. Rodney swooped in like a super hero! We asked him to help us plan a special surprise for them with balloons set up in one of the bedrooms. He went above and beyond providing balloons, a bottle of champagne, a card and a beautifully packaged gift. We were floored! Then, he helped us set up the best spa day we've ever had and a special celebration dinner. All of his recommendations are spot on! Whatever you need, Rodney delivers. Now about the Penthouse. It is so clean and fresh. When we entered, the essential oil diffuser was on and it felt like we walked into a spa! The decor... EXQUISITE. There is so much attention to detail!!! Rodney provided a thorough tour of the Penthouse explaining and pointing out every amenity available. And there are many! Every direction we turned during the tour we were saying oohs and ahhs! The large, fresh tropical floral arrangements in each room from the kitchen, to the living area, to the bedrooms...A++! The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need to make meals, snacks, etc. There was coffee, tea, and many other essentials. The refrigerator was stocked with water, assorted juices, sodas, and BEER! There was even a bottle of rum and wine on the counter. Wow! Rodney also provided an assortment of fresh baked pastries, chocolates, a mini rum cake, and fresh fruit. Each bathroom is stocked with essential toiletries, extra toilet paper, wet wipes, towels, etc. In the laundry closet, there are lightweight Tommy Bahama beach chairs. We used them at the beautiful beach across the street. Don't miss going there. Oh my goodness! There are also three pools to enjoy on property, one of which is visible right from the amazingly furnished balcony! Oh and the sunset! It is visible right outside on the balcony. What a sight! We were planning our next trip back to Penthouse 309 before we even left! Book now. You will be happy you did! Thank you Rodney for one of the best experiences!
