Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday condo in Christ Church - Jr Penthouse St Lawrence Beach

2 or 3 bathrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, sleeps 6; Inquire about other luxury rentals

Rented either as a 2- or as a 3-bedroom, 2.5 bath junior penthouse on the 3rd floor of the St. Lawrence Beach Condominiums presents indoor/outdoor living at its most brilliant.

A wraparound balcony suspended above the Caribbean seashore indulges with 3 lounging and conversation areas, plus an oceanfront hot tub. Sink into muscle-soothing water while taking in a tropical panorama from what feels like the top of the world.

On the other side of the glass, find an open, breezy indoor living area. A modern, elegant dining table facing the big ocean view, a plush lounge area coaxes you into long conversations, and a contemporary kitchen provides all the small and large appliances (in stainless steel) that you’ll need for preparing a meal to savor by the sea.


Other than the hot tub, the sea views, and stunning indoor-outdoor architecture, this penthouse stands out for its flexible accommodations; it can be rented as either a 2-bedroom OR a 3-bedroom unit. If you don’t need the 3rd bedroom, just let us know and we’ll close it up and adjust the nightly rate accordingly.

The main 2 bedrooms both face incredible wall-to-wall views of white-capped aqua waves skimming the pink shoreline. One bedroom lets you sprawl out with a king-sized bed; the other has a queen-sized bed. Both rejuvenate you with Caribbean furnishings and vibrant paint colors and fabrics.

The 3rd optional bedroom has a double bed. Unfortunately, this room does not have an ocean view.

St. Lawrence Beach Condominiums stand out because of the complex’s intimate size (just 17 units), small and lovely private beach with a private jetty—accessible only to condo guests and residents—for sunbathing or sea-watching, and a immaculately maintained oceanfront swimming pool surrounded by tropical landscaping.


St. Lawrence Gap, on the southern shore of Barbados is a favorite destination for both locals and tourists. Lots of quaint small businesses, including delicious restaurants, authentic shops, and more—all within walking distance of your condo. A car is not necessary; a taxi to and from the airport is likely all you’ll need.

We are experts on all things Barbados, so feel free to ask about the must-see places and activities to explore during your trip. Just use the “Send Message” button to the right. We know your holiday time is limited—I will do everything I can to help you make the most of it.

5 girls and I stayed at in the Junior Penthouse apt in Nov and had THE most amazing time.

The apt itself is gorgeous - LOTS of space for us and all our clothes! The pool was lovely, we had our own hot tub (good for when it rained!) and the location was amazing. I cannot say anything bad!

Everyone was so helpful and welcoming, I can't wait to go back!!

Gorgeous Condo

  • 4 of 5

I traveled to Barbados with a group. Party of 5 and we fit so comfortably in this unit. I thought the views were spectacular, the balcony was a major highlight for us and everything was functional. The only thing preventing me from giving this a 5 star review was the Wi-Fi. It was just rough! You could barely get connected and we had to stand in one place to get the best service. We all ended up calling our phone providers and purchasing an international plan. I needed to work on this vacation so it was important for me to be "connected". Other than that, I thought Ricardo and Jane were welcoming and pleasant. I loved being next to the night life and in walking distance to dover beach.

As for Barbados (I was not crazy about this island) I thought the US dollar didn't go far and most meals cost us around $40-50 bucks when dining out. I wouldn't go back, and if this condo was placed on a different island I would definitely stay in it again.

Owner's Response: I know you had trouble with the wifi! I'm so sorry about it not being up to snuff .. I work when I'm traveling and having reliable internet is vital. As you know, during your stay I had the connection checked by the IT company; they claimed they did what was needed. But I can see that whatever it was they did it wasn't enough. I do apologize for that. You're right about the costs, too. Almost every item we have on this island is imported, which contributes to the high cost of living in paradise. So Barbados is not a budget island, no. I am very happy to hear that you loved your apartment. I hope that when you reflect on your time here you remember the views, the beach, the gorgeous climate, and amazing location of your home-away-from-home! Thanks for choosing the Jr Penthouse in the St Lawrence Beach Condominiums for your accommodation while here. Wishing you many happy travels, xo Jane Shattuck

Awesome view and condo!

  • 5 of 5

I had an amazing time at the beach condo. Two friends and I visited Barbados to celebrate my birthday. I was a bit skeptical about the pictures since they looked amazing, but to my surprise, the condo is everything seen in the pictures. The view is to die for, the condo is decorated in a modern contemporary style,--very clean and welcoming and it totally aligns with the beach. The view from both bedrooms was refreshing and relaxing. The kitchen has everything you need for a short or long stay.

Restaurants, bars and entertainment is literally across the street from the condo. We spend a few nights partying at Jamm Inns across the street, it has live music and plays awesome music after 12pm. The crowd was great too. Their are plenty of beaches to pick from that's very close to the condo. Dover beach is a great one too.

Jane has been a huge resource for information and readily available to answer any of your questions. It was such a pleasure communicating with her. Ricardo, the building manager was also a pleasure to speak to--he was able to provide insights, recommendations and any other answers that we needed.

The only issue that we encountered was the spotty wifi throughout the condo. On the bright side, we got better reception from the wifi by the beaches (literally 2 beaches over from the condo) and by the pool.

Overall, this was an amazing vacation, one of the best. Barbados has some of the best beaches and I've experienced quite a few in my lifetime. Definitely get to know the locals to an even better experience. I would definitely visit and stay at the condo again!

Owner's Response: Thank you for choosing the Jr Penthouse in the St Lawrence Beach Condominiums for your birthday celebration. It was such a pleasure having you and your sweet friends here in Barbados. Your comment that you weren't sure you could trust the photos being a true depiction of what you'd find here was exactly the worry I had the first time I visited Barbados ... Could it really be as pretty as pictured?! I wondered. Well, now you know .... the photos say it all! Enjoy your year ... another year older but of course better than ever! :) Warm regards, Jane Shattuck

Gorgeous, clean and excellently situated.

  • 5 of 5

I booked the jr penthouse for three couples and we had an incredible time.

The place is well maintained, the staff are awesome and the views are 10/10.

Being on The Gap is perfect. Right mix of restaurants, bars, beaches and amenities within a five minute walk.

Would 100% stay here again. Jane was very responsive and very helpful with recommendations.

Great property. Would definitely come back.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the St. Lawrence Junior penthouse suite for 4 days and the only regret is we didn't stay longer. The balcony is huge with ample sunny and shaded areas throughout the day. The views are spectacular. The unit is well laid out and we rented the unit as a 2-bedroom with both rooms having great views of the Caribbean Sea (the third bedroom was not used and I have no information on it other than it is overlooking the parking area). The gap is a loud and lively area at night but for the two sea view rooms the noise was barely noticeable and all you could hear were the waves of the sea. The beds were extremely comfortable and the place was spotless with a dining table inside and out. We did not use the hot tub (mainly because I am particular about chemical levels or lack off). The cover on the hot tub definitely needs to be replaced (old and battered) as does some outdoor furniture but that is the only one very minor complaint to this unit. The staff in and around the condo is very helpful and the location can't be beat. A very short walk to Worhting and Dover beaches. Our two girls (ages 5 and 8) loved the pool and even the little beach area was nice for a swin in the sea. The local Masy supermaket was a short walk away and could take the shuttle back. You can even get a SIM card for an unlocked phone with FLOW at the supermarket. Great restaurants and drink locations a step out of the unit.

Exceeded our expectations

  • 5 of 5

I just wanted to thank you for a wonderful vacation at the condo. The condo was beautiful and in a perfect location; I miss the ocean view already. Ricardo and housekeeping was very helpful. I also wanted to say thank you for referring Chef Dane! He exceeded our expectations. I can't wait to return back. Th

Owner's Response: Such a wonderful vacation you had in Barbados .... I'm very happy to hear. Thanks for mentioning Chef Dane - he's a gem of a private cook, isn't he? I've referred him to numerous guests and all love his personality and devotion to cooking exquisite Bajan meals for island guests. See you again! Best best, Jane Shattuck
