We fell in love with Port St Charles the first time we drove past the gated entry in 2002. We were exploring the Northern part of the island, and just had to stop and view this delightful place. Construction was still going on, but the place was so beautifully managed it didn't matter.<BR><BR>We viewed several apartments, but the added bonus of a Plunge Pool on the terrace and being close to the water left us with no option but to choose Windward. We have had no regrets since. The ambience in the apartment and in Port St Charles is so relaxing and refreshing. It is a delight to walk around Port St Charles taking in the beautiful tropical gardens and being engulfed by the heavy scent of flowers. We are also so fortunate to have one of the best swimming/ snorkelling/ sunbathing beaches on the island, and despite all beaches in Barbados being public the beach at Port St Charles is never busy.

About Nicola Aldridge

We Live in Hampshire, England and have 3 adult children and 4 grandchildren.

Nicola Aldridge purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Nicola Aldridge chose St. Peter

Owned by Mark and Nicola Aldridge. We fell in love with Port St Charles the first time we drove past the gated entry in 2002. We were exploring the Northern part of the island, and just had to stop and view this delightful place.

We viewed several apartments, and finally chose this one on the Beach. We have had no regrets since. The ambience in the apartment and in Port St Charles is so relaxing and refreshing. It is a delight to walk around Port St Charles taking in the beautiful tropical gardens and being engulfed by the heavy scent of flowers. We are also so fortunate to have one of the best swimming/ snorkeling/ sunbathing beaches on the island, and despite all beaches in Barbados being public the beach at Port St Charles is never busy. We also feel it is an added bonus to be near Speightstown which is a ‘locals’ small town (more like a village). It is not commercial, and we are away from the busy touristy areas of Barbados. Despite that we can hop in the car, on a bus or in a taxi and be down in the ‘action’ further south in minutes.

What makes this apartment unique

This property has the exceptional privilege of being situated on the Beach at Port St Charles, with views looking out onto the beach and the water. It is open and spacious, light and airy, and feels just like home - having all the facilities and equipment you would expect in your own home - if not more. Sensibly priced, at way below what you would expect to pay for this very special location in Port St Charles.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My wife and I have rented Nicola's apartment for 10 days in april 2016. We have travelled to many places in the caribbean in the last few years and we can assure anyone who would like to rent this fabulous place that everything is beyond expectations. Nicola is taking exceptional care of this home (it feels more like a home than an apartment/Condo). This is the first time for us that we found a place where the owners would leave everything in place like if they would have known us for years. This place is really luxurious (this term has been used many times by others without necessary being true) and you can feel it in every room, the balconies, kitchen, bathrooms, bedrooms, etc... Everything is also squeaky clean. We've been to places where staying out on the balcony at night for dinner was a problem because of mosquitoes but not here in PSC, they sprayed the entire property for mosquitos control 2 times during our stay and it seems to work quite well. Snorkelling gears are available if you like to swim with some turtles right in front of the apartment. The beach is lovely and quiet, it was not busy at all during our stay. Every morning, we could find chairs on the beach and they are only available for PSC guests, towels of very good quality are available in the condo (Vilebrequin!). You are just steps away form the apartment, so you don't need to bring a lot of stuff with you on the beach. The restaurant at the marina is very good for lunch and dinner and Monique was so friendly and nice with us. We had dinner 3-4 times at the apartment and the kitchen is well-equipped to cook like a chef. We especially liked the fridge with the water/ice distributor and drank the filtered water without any issues. If you like to walk on the beach, you can put on shoes and walk at low tides for quite a long time. (we've been told we could walk all the way to Bridgetown!). We rented our car from Stoutes car rental and we didn't have any problems. We rented a small convertible suzuki jeep but did not open the top because it was just too hot outside. Speightstown is a nice little town 10-12 minutes walk where you can find Jordan's grocery and some restaurants. Try Orange Street Grocer for a very good wood oven pizza and beers. We've been to the Fish Pot, Daphne's, Lone Star and they are all excellent restaurants choices. In summary, we loved our vacation and would recommend Barbados and Baliceau 271 to anyone who like to feel at home but away from home.

Paradise Exists

  • 5 of 5

The booking process was easy & Nicola, the owner, provided such a lot of information that proved very useful on our arrival.

The apartment is beautiful. Such a homely feel to it. Decorated so tastefully. Everything you need is provided.

The views from the terraces are spectacular, especially from the beachfront. Just laying in bed listening to the sea lapping against the shore is so special.

The housekeeper, Glenda, is a real gem. So helpful & kind.

Port St Charles has a welcoming feel to it. All the staff are very helpful except for one beach guy who was a bit sullen. The place is so relaxing & the beach is only a few steps away. Beautiful beach & not busy at all. Just contact reception & you have an umbrella & loungers ready for you on the beach. The water taxi over to the Yacht Club is great. Lovely to have a drink there or a spot of lunch.

I would certainly suggest hiring a car to explore the island. There aren't many amenities within walking distance so a car is useful. There are many restaurants within a few miles so you can get a taxi. We loved a restaurant called 'The Fish Pot'. Only a couple of minutes drive. Food is fantastic & views spectacular & a little cheaper than some of the high end restaurants. We generally went out at lunchtime as we loved eating on the terrace watching the sunset & listening to the sea.

You can also walk along the beach to Speightstown. Takes about 15 mins. Keep a look out for the turtles!!

All in all we absolutely loved our holiday. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property. If you are looking for a relaxing, peaceful & breathtaking holiday then look no further. Thank you Nicola, it was a privilege to stay.

Fantastic Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic apartment in a great location at Port St Charles. Pictures don't do it justice just steps from the beach and marina at rear. Great to have the yacht club so close as its got a great pool and bar/ restaurant and water taxi to and from. Everything as advertised, impeccably clean. Good communication with owner. Apartment highly recommended.

A lovely home on a beautiful beach

  • 5 of 5

Rather than paraphrase the other reviews, let me just say they are all correct in every respect. We had a lovely holiday here, and the best compliment I can give is to say we are rebooking for 2017.

Wow! Stuning, luxurious property and location

  • 5 of 5

Wow! This really is a stunning fabulous luxurious apartment. The views are amazing, right on the beach front on one side and lovely marina views from the back. The apartment is large and with an enormous balcony on both sides. The apartment is beautifully and tastefully furnished, it certainly feels like a luxurious home rather than a rental apartment. The description and photos are accurate. It is a very special location. The rooms are all spacious, everything you could think that you might need is here to use. The apartment was spotlessly clean and very well maintained. It has a calm relaxed chilling feel. We used the water taxi to hop over to the very good value PSC yacht club to eat and drink some days. Speightown is walking distance along the beach. Amazing place - do not hesitate to book, you will not be disappointed. Great communication and information from the owner. Loved it and would definitely return.

Smart, well-appointed, beautifully decorated, spacious apartment, with stunning beach views. Thought has been given to requirements for visitors' comfort and convenience. Clean and well-serviced.

A beautiful apartment on the beach.

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautifully appointed apartment overlooking the beach on one side and the marina on the other. The apartment is very clean and very well organised. It has a home from home feeling about it. It was nice to have a welcome pack in the fridge on arrival. Although we did not cook, the kitchen is fully equipped, should you want to. The bedrooms are light and airy with comfortable beds, nice bed linen and lots of wardrobe space. There is also a safe.The bathrooms are beautiful and there were plenty of towels. We had a maid coming in two mornings a week, cleaning and changing linen. The apartment is situated on one of the best beaches on the island. We were very well taken care of by the beach staff, providing loungers and umbrellas. The Yacht Club nearby provides good food and drinks but should you want to venture further afield, there are some fantastic restaurants on the island. For this you will need transport though. We booked the driver who picked us up from the airport for the evenings we were going out. The apartment is decorated and furnished to a very high standard, all in all - a delight. We would love to go back and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.

Car: recommended

Located on the beach in the beautiful marina resort of Port St Charles, boasting one of the best beaches and reefs in Barbados. Port St Charles is 500m north of the small historic town of Speightstown. Here Caribbean life is as it has been for hundreds of years, fishermen bringing in the day's catch to be sold at the town's fish market, the colourfully dressed ladies by the side of the main street selling fresh fruit and vegetables, the general hustle and bustle of a genuine Caribbean 'town'. There are also small supermarkets, art galleries, bars, and restaurants. The more modern Holetown is 15mins and Bridgetown the capital 30mins away. Travel by bus or more sedately by car or taxi. The wild rugged East Atlantic coast is about 20 minutes away. Between PSC and there enjoy visiting Plantation Houses, working Sugar Cane fields, villages, the hills of Scotland, amazing vistas and more.
