Overview

About the property

A 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom ground floor apartment steps away from the beach.

Freshwater Bay is one of the best kept secrets on the island. Your journey begins when you take that turn off of the Spring Garden Highway onto a private road. Seemingly in an industrial area you start to wonder if you have made the right decision booking this apartment. As you round the first corner, there is a small fishing village with men attending to their boats and roaming chickens casually going about their daily routine. As your concerns heighten about this location, Freshwater Bay sign emerges on your left. Upon opening the lattice gate to the facility your breath is immediately taken away by the beauty of this place. The vibrant colourful flowers and tropical fauna that line the small pathway towards the lush gardens sprinkled with coconut trees welcome you in. Meandering down the short pathway the beauty of the stunning calm ocean boasts of hundreds of shades of blue is just steps away. Now emerged in the tropical garden you are enticed to sit under the shaded palm trees to read, slip into the loungers and sun bath or sit in the Gazebo and watch the cruise ships or the local fishing and sail boats pass lazily by. However before you get lost in just what to do first you have to get settled.

#5 is on the ground floor and opens into a large lounge area with a bar and small fridge ideal for entertaining. In addition there are two couches one of which serves as a pull out couch. This flows onto the enclosed patio and extended sun bathing deck, all ocean facing to enjoy the views from every angle. Adjacent to the living room is the kitchen which is fully outfitted with a stove, fridge, microwave and various cooking utensils. Down the short corridor is the first bedroom with an en-suite bathroom with a shower. This room has two single beds and A/C unit with good cupboard space. Of course you really only need bathing suits at Freshwater Bay. At the end of the corridor is a Jack and Jill bathroom with a shower that also is used by the large master bedroom that has an A/C unit and ample cupboards. The master has a large California king size bed. The third bedroom is entered through the master and also has it’s own shower and bathroom. In addition, this room has it’s private entrance to the car park. Also being outfitted with A/C, cupboards and a double bed. The apartment has for your use and enjoyment an additional stand alone small freezer, electric grill, stereo and a few board games.

So now you are all settled into your new home, we invite you to relax and start your adventure. Walk north along the pristine beach and have a swim in the calm ocean. Walk south pass the local fishing village and this would take you as far as the outer parameters of Bridgetown. Upon this walk you would encounter the local Hot Pot just outside the Light and Power plant, stop and enjoy a dip in this warm water enjoyed by many locals. If you are around for Thursday night, visit Bush Bar next door for the local brew and great tunes of Karoke night!

#5 is Home away from Home so come and enjoy and live like a Bajan.

About Lisa Coyle

We would like to introduce ourselves. Chris and Lisa. We both were born and grew up in Barbados. We both were educated locally and have worked on the island all of our life. Our three children, two boys and one girl are our greatest achievements. Although we like to travel and still have many places still to visit, we still feel Barbados is the best place to live. So we invite you to enjoy our island.

Why Lisa Coyle chose Spring Garden

We fell in love with Freshwater Bay the day we stepped through the doors of the property. It took us 10 years to eventually be able to purchase a property here and love each minute we spend at the apartment ourselves when we have the opportunity. We found the place peaceful, charming, quiet and with just a few apartments on the property it is like home away from home.

What makes this apartment unique

When we visit Freshwater we enjoy just sitting in the patio looking out at the view. Kicking back in the Gazebo while Barbecuing some fresh fish. Watching the birds pick the small bait fish out of the water, observing the large cruise ships arrive and leaving from the port, walking the beaches, going for warm dips in the local "Hot Pot", meeting different people at Karaoke on Thursday nights or simply just reading under the trees whilst slowly drifting off to sleep. However, at the end of each day we prepare to witness the beautiful sunsets to mark the end of another beautiful day at Freshwater Bay and look forward to doing this all over again tomorrow.

Best beach in Barbados!

  • 5 of 5

The owners description of this place is bang on! The unit is very large with a great patio looking out at the ocean. The property is beautifully manicured with loads of chairs. We are walking distance to buses, restaurants, as well as a huge grocery store.

I've been to Barbados many times but this beach is easily the best I've ever been on. 4-5 kilometers of white sand with outstanding swimming. You are a 20 minute bus ride to Holetown; a 10 minute ride to Bridgetown, and a 30-40 minute ride to Oistins and St Lawrence Gap..

The owners are very responsive and helpful as well.

Car: recommended

Freshwater Bay is in a somewhat hidden location just off of the spring garden highway. The entry to the property does not do justice to what you will find on your arrival. It is a true secret garden that offers all the comforts of any holiday maker that wishes to relax, swim, read and just soak in the tranquil ambiance. Every Thursday night the Bush Bar next door offers karaoke, an experience of a true local bar. For fresh fish ask the local fisherman next door to see what has been caught that day which may be available for sale. The Gas station/mini mart just up the hill has most grocery items for a quick pick up. Alternatively in Black Rock you can visit the large Carlton Supermarket. For a great Barbecue meal try the TNT Barbecue Hut which is at the top of Spring Garden Highway heading towards the University of The West Indies. The local yellow or blue busses run constantly from the top of the Spring Garden Highway by the Gas station/mini mart and within minutes you can travel up and down the west coast of the island that offers all of the amenities you would need. For additional shopping you can head south towards Bridgetown and visit many of the duty free shops and various restaurants. Waterfront cafe is a wonderful place to have lunch or dinner. Certain nights they feature Jazz music. Most Barbadian's or BAJAN's as we call ourselves are very helpful and will be happy to give you suggestions of places to go, directions. We are proud people and proud of our little island. Alternatively do not hesitate to call us (Chris or Lisa) and we would be pleased to suggest places you may like to visit.
