Overview

Photos and Description of this holiday apartment in Silver Sands - Inchcape Seaside Villas

Luxurious 2 bedroom and 1 bedroom apartments right on Silver Sands Beach

All units at the Inchcape Seaside Villas stand for extravaganza in architecture and Caribbean lifestyle at its best. “House Seaside”, House Sunset, The Seaside Cottages, the Garden Apartment and the Coconut Studio are more than just a place to stay. Our accommodations let you experience the exotic mix, flavor and coziness of an old Caribbean plantation style property, serving today as beautifully located ocean front holiday homes, on the western end of the white sand beach of Silver Sands with it’s crystal clear and turquoise blue waters of the Caribbean Sea. “The Seaside-Cottages”, can be considered a fine example of beautifully designed and finished West Indian homes. The houses are framed by a natural garden of tropical plants and trees and its wooden decks and terraces on the ground and second floor level, just a few meters from the water’s edge, are responsible for breathtaking and unobstructed views of the Caribbean Sea. The Inchcape units truly are a wonderful experience.

Windsurfing: The spot to windsurf in Barbados is the area of Silver Sands, where the conditions are challenging yet forgiving and where circumstances are unbelievably convenient - and Inchcape is located right on the edge of Silver Sands beach.

You only rig up once and store your equipment just a few steps from the water. Shower, shade, relaxation area, everything combined right at your house, right on the spot, which is so unique. We have made it possible for you to enjoy this luxury windsurfing experience at our gorgeous vacation home, Inchcape in Silver Sands, on the Caribbean island of Barbados.

Sounds to good to be true?!? May be it does, but this dream will come true for you when you decide to come and stay with the people who discovered Silver Sands as a world class wave windsurfing spot. In 1978 Rosi and Wolfgang, your hosts at Inchcape, were the first people to ever sail at Silver Sands' reef formations.

Kitesurfing: Jim Drake, one of the inventors of windsurfing in the '70s, had already experimented with a wing, shaped like a hangglider, in the early stages of windsurfing... Time has gone by and the wing has become a kite which finally turned out to be an appropriate alternative for accelerating a surfboard using windpower.

Since kitesurfing really started taking off about two years ago, the still relatively small kitesurfing community learned quickly that special circumstances are needed to make kitesurfing a safe and enjoyable experience.

Barbados isn't only blessed with it's unique windsurfing conditions, it also proved to have some of the most ideal kitesurfing beaches possible. There are first of all the beaches around Inchcape, like Silver Sands and Silver Rock, which attract most of the kitesurfers. Brian Talma's Action Shop at Silver Rock is available for kitesufing lessons.

Surfing: When the world was created, Barbados was given an abundance of potential for becoming a surfer's paradise. The island's location far out in the Atlantic Ocean allows waves to travel thousands of kilometers on the bottom of the sea to finally unload all the power they developed during the long journey over Barbados' coral reefs.

As Barbados is a coral island, a coral reef stretches all around Barbados' coastline, providing for unlimited surfing conditions all over. No matter whether a swell approaches the island from a northerly or westerly direction or whether it's moving in from the East or the South, Barbados is guaranteed to have surf somewhere along it's shores at almost any given day of the year.

Also Inchcape is blessed with a surf break right in front of the property:

The shorebreak at Inchcape on the western end of Silver Sands beach is a pitchy shorebreak and can fit all sorts of descriptions, from mushy to super clean, it can be quite powerful or moderate and changes daily

About Wolfgang Lange

We are the people who discovered Silver Sands for the sport of windsurfing. We were the first windsurfers in Silver Sands and made Silver Sands known as one of the best wave windsurfing spots in the world.

Wolfgang Lange purchased this apartment in 1992

Why Wolfgang Lange chose Silver Sands

The Inchcape Seaside Villas are situated in a unique location, right on the water at the western end of Silver Sands Beach. Inchcape, as it presents itself today, developed from a plantation style property from 1920 and combines now the charm of the old with all modern amenities. Due to our location and proximity to the water we enjoy the best climate Barbados has to offer.

The houses have constantly been renovated and upgraded and Inchcape is recognized today as a unique and one of the most luxurious properties of such a kind in Barbados. Our beach is a beautiful and almost private beach, and has it all, from calm waters like on a pond to a small shore break at one end of the beach, which makes it the perfect beach paradise which suits a broad range of holiday makers. Silver Sands Beach can be for everybody, from the sport enthusiast to the one who just wants to relax and enjoy the beautiful turquoises waters of this pristine white sand beach.

What makes this apartment unique

Our beach, the almost perfect climate due to the gentle breezes of the trades and our proximity to the water, our strategically location, just a few minutes away from the Oistins fish market and shops and restaurants, and still being in pure nature just minutes away from everything one wants to be close to.

Peace, Tranquility and kitesurfing heaven

  • 4 of 5

We came for two weeks and stayed in two of the apartments, Seaview and Sunset. Other travellers seem to suggest Tower, but we cannot comment!

The best thing about Inchcape is its location to the Kitesurfing Capital of Barbados, Silversands. If you're not a surfer, it's isolated and you need a car to find bars, restaurants and other beaches.

Seaview (Upstairs). A studio style double room with separate kitchenette area and large balcony. Fresh breezes keep the unit lovely and comfortably cool. Great side views of the sea and beach from the balcony and perfectly adequate as a base of operations.

Overall view on location is this: if you want a get away from it all place with great views, or you are a keen surfer, kitesurfer, wind surfer, this place is most definitely for you.

If not, get a car and it's minutes to beaches you can safely swim at like Miami (Enterprise) Beach or Carlisle Bay; or places to eat like Oistins Fish Fry (try Uncle George's!), Surfers Bay beach bar, Kermit's Bar (very local), St Lawrence Gap, Worthing, Accra, Hastings and Rockley.

The nearest walk to eatery/bar is Surfers Bay, but it only really opens at 5pm. The food is great and Sunday Night is their big night.

There is loads to do and see on the south of the island. Crane beach is 30 mins by car, lovely lovely beach - plenty of other trip advisor ideas too if you search.

We loved Inchcape. Wolfgang found us a hire car and managed our planned change of rooms very efficiently for us. The maids are friendly and cheerful. The rooms are kept clean, and fresh towels and linen every three days is fine. Salt air and occasional showers mean windows sometimes must be closed, but we didn't need the AC in the room, the gentle breeze was very comfortable in 29 degree heat.

And no bugs at this time of year!! Marvellous!!

Definitely worth serious consideration if you're after peace and tranquility, are prepared to use the reggae buses or get a car, for a more local vibe than the West Coast offering. We loved it and will be back.

Stayed March 2015, travelled as a couple

The apartment was perfect & the location fantastic

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was extremely beautiful, very well managed and full of little quality details. The view from the villas was breath-taking, I missed it the moment I left! The location was perfect for water sport addicted (like myself) but the island has so much to offer that even if you are not into kitesurfing you will love it!

Private and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Arriving at Inchcape Seaside Villas, I was greeted by very friendly and helpful staff, who showed me to my apartment, Coconut. The layout and description that I found online prior to booking, were happily exceeded by actually seeing the property for myself.

The apartment was very clean, and was maintained very well, the suite was very spacious and provided all the amenities that I would require for my weeks stay.

The owners were amazing people, Rosie and Wolfgang immediately made me feel as if I were "home" and treated me like a family member. The atmosphere allowed me to be totally relaxed, and feel like I was in a place I belonged.

I would highly recommend this property or any of the properties at Inchcape Seaside Villas to a family member or friend, the options as far as different accommodations are well suited for many types of travelers, from solo adventurers, such as myself, to families looking to stay for an extended period of time.

The location was amazing, very secluded and private, however very close to many beaches and attractions.

I know I will be returning to Inchcape Seaside Villas, for many years to come.

Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from 2 weeks at Inchcape in a studio apartment with a fenced in grass lawn, a hammock hung between 2 palm trees, a view of the ocean, the constant sound of the lapping surf, sunny days, a warm breeze, peace and isolation, and a gracious and unintruding staff. There's a perfect beach with a very swimmable surf, shade, and a food truck a 10 minute ride away and an inexpensive restaurant and bar with great food and atmosphere close by. We toured the entire island and found no other place we would have rather stayed. We didn't rent a car and rode the local "reggae busses" everywhere not within walkable distance. Everyone we interacted with welcomed us with a smile.

Absolutely stunning place. Better than imagined!!

  • 5 of 5

Inchcape is an absolutely stunning property that is impeccably maintained. There is great attention to detail and Wolfgang makes everything run smoothly. We stayed in Seaview with a beautiful balcony and view of the ocean. There was a beautiful breeze blowing and we did not feel the need for a/c. We rented a car at Wolfgang's suggestion and enjoyed the freedom of getting around the island. When we initally booked our trip we thought that we might want to move to a different location after a week but once we arrived we decided to spend our whole time at Inchcape. The location was very central for what we wanted to do which was learn to surf. We enjoyed some meals cooked in our kitchen but mostly dined out at some of the local restaurants like Surfer's Bay, within a short walk, and to Oistins for the fish fry.

Thank you so much Wolfgang and Rosie. You have done a fantastic job. We hope to be back again next year.

Sabina and Jamie.

...an amazing location in Barbados...

  • 4 of 5

We have spent a beautiful vacation in Inchape (guesthouse seaview) and in Barbados. The guesthouse is in a good position to visit west and east coast of the island and is closed to Oistins and Lawrence gap (5 min by car) where are present restaurants and markets. The location is amazing, with seaview. The aparment is clean and curate. Rosi & Wolfgang very helpful and quick to respond to email. The location is a good solution for a vacation to explore the island, rather than the usual resorts.

The villas and apartments are located on the very private ocean front estate of the “Inchcape Seaside Villas”, which is clustered on the southern most tip of Barbados. The houses are facing into the gentle breezes of the trades, which provide for the most perfect climate Barbados has to offer, never too warm or too cold. Inchcape also overlooks one of the island's most beautiful and unspoiled white sand beaches and is surrounded by brilliant clear, turquoise blue water. The beach is heaven for swimming and snorkeling, windsurfing and kitesurfing, surfing and boogie boarding. One side of Silver Sands Beach can have a little shore beak while the other side is much calmer and ideal for swimming and sea bathing. Life in this part of the island is casual and unhurried in the true Barbadian tradition. The small fishing village of Oistins is just a few minutes away and there are plenty of restaurants and supermarkets from in walking distance to just minutes away by car.

Other Activities: kitesurfing, boogie boarding, bodysurfing, and much more.

Golf: The Inchcape management gladly arranges tee times and lessons. The Barbados Golf Club, Sandy Lane and Royal Westmoreland have excellent pro shops. The combination of golf, sun and the Caribbean Sea, a comfortable place To stay at Inchcape and enjoying the privilege of being able to play a round of Golf at Royal Westmoreland, aren't those reasons enough to try Barbados for a golf vacation?

General Info

Barbados has excellent 18-hole championship golf courses. Sandy Lane with two Tom Fazio designed courses will rank amongst the finest golf resorts in the world. The elegance and beauty of the course of Royal Westmoreland golf course, one of the best of Robert Trent Jones jr.'s designs, is outstanding and if there is one course to play in Barbados, it's definitely the one of Royal Westmoreland. The Barbados Golf and Country Club at Durants near Oistins and Silver Sands along with the 18-hole signature course at Apes Hill round up the picture of Barbados as a world class quality golf destination and makes the island a serious contender for being the No.1 Golf destination in the Caribbean.
