The moment that you enter ‘Windward’ you will begin to experience an atmosphere of luxury. The entrance approached through landscaped gardens draws you straight to cool tropical furnishings of the spacious living room and then the spectacular views beyond through the sun terrace of the tranquil aquamarine waters of the lagoon and and the splendid yachts in their moorings. You will be soothed by the gentle breeze of the Tradewinds wafting through the apartment to bring a refreshing feel to this tropical climate.
This unusually large, air conditioned apartment with comfortable luxury has everything for the perfect holiday or extended stay, a well appointed kitchen with its open counter through to the living room, two super large bedrooms each with their own marble tiled bathrooms, a dining/sun lounging terrace, a plunge pool, and one of the most idyllic beaches in Barbados.
Located on the small island in the lagoon in the beautiful marina resort of Port St Charles, boasting one of the best beaches and reefs in Barbados. Peaceful setting.
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, with the 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, a variety of shops, art galleries, rum bars, and restaurants. The more modern Holetown is 15 mins and Bridgetown the capital 30 mins away. Travel by bus (a hair raising ride in a yellow bus for $2) 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.

Why we chose Port St Charles: Owned by David and Lisa Stoute. 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.
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 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. There is no need for me to say all this - just read the reviews,and you will wish to stay here too.
