Two Levels of Sea Views & A Tropical Setting on Dover Beach, BARBADOS

Bedrooms 2
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 5 - 10 nights


Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday condo in Christ Church - Sapphire Beach 101

2 bedrooms + 2 bathrooms, sleeps 4. Amazing sea views, easy beach access

This is a 2-level, 2-bedroom Caribbean condo on a Barbados beach that will take your breath away.

Sapphire #101 is housed within amenity-packed Sapphire Beach Condos in St. Lawrence Gap, on the south shore of Barbados. Among other perks, the complex boasts 370 feet of wide, never crowded beachfront, 2 beautiful swimming pools, and meticulously landscaped tropical gardens, all steps from the sugar-white Dover Beach at the edge of the Caribbean.


On the top floor of #101 you’ll find magical views of marbled aqua and azure waves sliding onto the glistening sands of Dover Beach. An indoor/outdoor patio perched at the tree line presents a shaded spot for admiring the view, lounging with a book, or digging into a lovely oceanfront meal at the al fresco dining table.

The modern kitchen, also on the top floor, is a vision in stainless steel, contemporary cabinets and granite countertops. And because it’s open to the rest of the living area, the kitchen lets the cook stay part of the conversation.

A dining table just off the kitchen lets you entertain guests in an unbeatable setting. Procure all the ingredients you need at The Dover Market just across the street.

The upstairs bedroom suite provides a king-sized bed and en suite bath. This complex is just 5 years-young—built in 2009—so the bathrooms are like-new and spotless.

The second suite downstairs has two twin beds that can combine into a king. It also boasts its own attached bathroom, plus a big glass wall that opens to the lush, landscaped outdoors—and just beyond that, the sea and beach. Rub the sleep from your eyes and head straight to the water!

A queen-sized sleeper sofa rounds out the sleeping capacity at five :)

Families love the two levels at Sapphire Beach #101, which provide plenty of space for sprawling out, finding a private spot, and spending time together.


Dover Beach is one of Barbados’ finest stretches of shoreline. Located on the stylish yet laid-back south coast of the island, Dover Beach provides a full range of family-friendly activities like stand-up paddling, boogie-boarding, beachcombing, sunbathing, and more.

The surrounding area of St. Lawrence Gap (“The Gap” to locals) is quaint, authentic, and packed with shops, beach bars and tasty restaurants, both casual and upscale.

And all of this is an easy walk from your condo—yet distanced enough that peace, quiet, and tranquility are all yours, too.

If you do bring a car (though in this spot, one isn’t required to get around), there’s a parking spot waiting for you just outside your condo.

We want you to have the vacation of a lifetime in Barbados. We love it here, and love sharing this special place with others. To ask us questions, or to make a reservation, contact me by clicking the “Send Message” button on the right.

Thank you for taking a look. See you on the beach,

Jane Shattuck

Milestone Birthday Trip

  • 5 of 5

A group of us stayed at this condo to celebrate a couple milestone birthdays. We had a fabulous time. The codo is in a perfect location close to shops, restaurants and, of course, the beach! The sand is soft and the water is warm. The condo itself is well maintained and very comfortable with a beautiful view. The covered outdoor patio was great for dining in the evenings. And, the pool is right out your bedroom door. It was an amazing trip! You won't be disappointed.

Owner's Response: A milestone birthday should be spent doing something really special. I'm delighted you had a wonderful and memorable couple of birthdays :) (Makes turning a year older less painful, doesn't it?) Thanks for your lovely review. I hope we see you back in Barbados .. maybe next time just to relive your birthday trip! Sunny regards, Jane Shattuck

A home away from home!

  • 4 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying at this fantastic condo in January 2016 and our experience was first class. It had all the amenities at your fingertips.

The ground floor, 2-level layout worked out perfectly for my husband and I, as we were travelling with our 18-month-old daughter and my mother-in-law. There was easy access to the pool for our daughter, and the beach was just steps away. The condo was fully stocked with all the beach/pool toys you could ever want, so no need to bring your own.

The condo is just outside St. Lawrence Gap, so it's close enough to easily walk to, but far enough that you don't hear loud music or partying from the bars. The only thing that you could hear on one night of the week was live music from the Dover beach area, but that didn't go on too late.

Dover Market was close by, just a few minutes walk, where you could get all your essential groceries. If you feel like eating out on occasion, there are plenty of restaurants in the Gap that you can walk too, and even the small "beach hut" restauarnts at Dover serve good local food. Try "Daddy's" for some excellent macaroni pie!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Sapphire 101. I've been to Barbados many times, always staying at hotels, so this was a refreshing change. Definitely felt like a home away from home, and we would not hesitate to return.

Thanks to Jane and the property management team for your help!

Everything ok, except the sea

  • 4 of 5

Lovely apartement perfect for our family of four. Very confortable beds, clean and functional home...but the sea was brown!! We have never been to the beach in front of the condo. Fortunately we could rent a car and visit the west coast and the rest of Barbados.

Great place to stay while in Barbados

  • 5 of 5

First time to Barbados and I really did a lot of researched about where to stay. This condo was perfect for our family of five. Very difficult to find a place with indoor dining which this had plus outdoor dining. Being a condo on the end of the building was also a plus. Very nice grounds, safe, east access and view of beach and pool. Water is not real blue here but is clean. Very easy to rent from this company and they really do make you feel welcome. Comfortable bedding, well stocked kitchen. Would recommend to anyone going to Barbados but be sure to get out and see the rest of the island. Don't miss the views at Bathsheba and North Point. Suggest rent a car and really explore!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for staying in #101 Sapphire Beach Condominiums; I'm happy to hear you and your family had a great stay on our beautiful island. About the sea ... you mention it's not very blue at Dover Beach where you were. It normally is a sparkling aqua blue; it just happened to have some seaweed discoloration the week of your visit. Sorry about that ... Mother Nature at work! I agree about Bathsheba and North Point being can't-miss spots to visit. Both are rugged and wild and look much as they looked 100 years ago. The scenery is dramatic and beautiful in a different way than the west and south coasts are beautiful. Best regards and happy travels, Jane Shattuck
