BEAUTIFUL BARBADOS BEACHFRONT PROPERTY

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Bridgetown - Apartment 7, Freshwater Bay

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-4) Beachfront

Location

Number 7 is nestled on a white sand beach on the “Platinum Coast,” the calm Caribbean Sea side of Barbados. Number 7, Freshwater Bay is situated in a small complex, with beautifully maintained lush gardens. Our cheery, clean, tropical ground floor home is built for the beach: Tile floors, lots of outdoor seating, and an open kitchen plan so you don't miss out on the sea view or guests while you cook! Our upstairs unit has a large, amazing balcony with the best view in the complex.

Beach

You can stroll a good mile in either direction on the quiet beach, collecting sea shells or having a drink at Weiser's Beach Bar. Watch from afar as the cruise ships maneuver into and out of port, tour the island or stay on the beach all day long, swimming in the fabulous calm waters, hunting for Sand Dollars or watching an occasional Sea Turtle. Time slows down here.

Ambiance

After a stay at Freshwater Bay you will know you have experienced beautiful Barbados, not some all-inclusive hotel, crammed in with other tourists.

Nearby

We are in a neighborhood – actually it’s a quaint fishing village which we believe is paradise. Two blocks away you will find 'Eve’s at the Plant', the cleanest restaurant on the island, serving a fabulous breakfast and lunch. You can order the best flying fish and macaroni pie anywhere in Barbados. Friday she makes her famous Spanish Rice. Order early!

If you don't want to venture any further than across the road, you can visit 'Jack's Bush Bar,' listed in Zagat’s as famous for pork chops and Thursday night Karaoke.

Or, support the local fishermen next door and buy the freshest fish or lobster possible.

We are 7 minutes by car from Bridgetown, the Soccer/cricket stadium, and shops galore. 20 minutes to Holetown, Carlton's supermarket, in Black Rock, is close, and Super-Centre, in Warrens, is a short drive away. Royal Bank of Canada, the closest bank, is 'just up the road.' Also up the road is a petrol/convenience store open 24/7.

There's lots to do in Barbados - festivals, homes tours, walking tours, botanical gardens, and of course rum tours. We are on the West coast where there is a plethora of wonderful dining spots.

Bert and I (Susan) love this place! We lead active lives in Kansas in the USA, yes Dorothy, the Land of OZ, and delight in the slower pace of Barbados. We love the great restaurants here, and as ex-restaurateurs, used to go out every evening, but now, more often that not, we buy fish from the guys next door, cook and dine on our own beach. We have made many friends among the guests and the best thing for us is that there is always someone to hang out with, or you can be totally reclusive if you wish. It's kind of like old college days, where you can go from unit to unit finding out what everyone did that day, hitch a ride to the grocery store, share a book, or get the scoop on what sights to see or where to go. The staff here is exceptional, Tamara will help you have a fabulous time, tell you what to do, what not to do and arrange trips, car hire and boat rides, etc. Dog lovers that we are, we love it here so much, thru the years we have brought back three beach dogs!

Tamara Brathwaite purchased this apartment in 1985

We purchased our duplex at Freshwater Bay in 1985 after my husband fell in love with this area. We add amenities and focus on one new project each year. The bathrooms were remodeled in 2010. In 2012 we put in new stoves, refrigerators and new windows. In 2014 we replaced the doors and curtains upstairs and will redo the doors downstairs later this year.

The swimming on our beach is fabulous, with great sea shell specimens, interesting coral and sea glass to be found. Freshwater Bay is old Barbados – not overbuilt. The beach is quiet, not full of tourists. Walk North up the beach a bit to see where Four Seasons is building a posh resort. I can walk for a mile without seeing another person some days. Stroll South if you're more of a people watcher, and you’ll go by the Power Plant, Mt. Gay Rum, Cockspur, Weiser's Beach Bar, and the Brighten beach community, a lovely quiet, neighborhood of beach homes.

We enjoy the fact that Freshwater Bay is its own little United Nations: British, Canadian, American, and local owners. As they say in Barbados, “All Visitors Welcome!”

Our Barbados home is very comfortable, decorated in tropical colors with spacious bedrooms. We are on the quiet side of the complex. The staff make the experience fantastic, from Tamara the manager, to Carl the gardener and June, the maid, everyone is proud of their island and understand the true meaning of hospitality. There is true camaraderie here. Bert & I know you will enjoy this peaceful, unique spot. ALSO, if you are traveling with other families and need more room the condo above & behind is available as well.

Bajen holiday

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 29-Mar-2014
  • Date of Stay: Feb 2014
This was a very relaxing week surrounded by blue water and sand, far from snow and closed schools and workplaces. We enjoyed toasting the sunsets from the patio on day one, and floating peacefully in the crystal blue water on lazy mornings just steps from the patio and wandering along beaches past palms, coral and bougainvillea, ginger and Bird of Paradise flowers. The community of like minded tenants were friendly and helpful, sharing favorite day trips and island favorite destinations . We enjoyed several very nice, sophisticated restaurants and several authentic Bajen menu features, rum bars and walk-up shops. We had breakfast at the Polo field while attending a craft fair. All part of the experience of Barbados. The cuisine was wonderful and the fresh fish plentiful from flying fish to barracuda. The tropical plants and foliage were indescribably beautiful at every stop throughout the island. We deplaned and stopped on the way home to tour a local rum distillery dating back centuries; we ended the week relaxing in a private garden tucked into this tropical paradise. You will find a car necessary to get to the many special towns and sites but it is easy to find your way. Take friends or family and rejuvenate yourselves and enjoy a week you will not soon forget.

Owner's Response: This couple achieved the perfect balance of relaxation, sightseeing and finding a mix of elegant and local restaurants. The husband painted some amazing watercolours of the beach and gardens. He was kind enough to leave us one that has already been framed and hung!

My husband and I spent a long weekend at the apartment. We couldn't have had a better time. The accommodations were ideal, including the spectacular view. We took long watches on the beach and captured the sunset every evening perched up on the brick wall. I highly recommend this getaway!

If you want to just relax and enjoy the view and not have to worry about any thing, then this is the place. If you're upset about something, just wait until the morning and the view and the sound of the surf will take it all away.We had ten wonderful days here and were treated like family.The apartment was very clean, the beds were excellent and the decor was A1. If you want to do a lot of sightseeing you really should have a car but there is great taxi service available. The owners were staying there at their apartment during our stay and did everything to make our stay very enjoyable. This must be the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow that we saw on our last morning.Truly a small piece of Paradise.

Owner's Response: We really enjoyed "hosting" these two couples. They did fun things, embraced Bajan culture and added to the complex!
