Number 7 is nestled on a white sand beach on the “Platinum Coast,” the calm Caribbean Sea side of Barbados. Number 7, Freshwater Bay is situated in a small complex, with beautifully maintained lush gardens. Our cheery, clean, tropical ground floor home is built for the beach: Tile floors, lots of outdoor seating, and an open kitchen plan so you don't miss out on the sea view or guests while you cook! Our upstairs unit has a large, amazing balcony with the best view in the complex. There are wonderful mosquito curtains on the balcony that don’t impede the spectacular view at all but give a bit of privacy and lots of nighttime mosquito protection!
You can stroll a good mile in either direction on the quiet beach, collecting sea shells or having a drink at a Beach Bar. Watch from afar as the cruise ships maneuver into and out of port, tour the island or stay on the beach all day long, swimming in the fabulous calm waters, hunting for Sand Dollars or watching an occasional Sea Turtle. Time slows down here.
After a stay at Freshwater Bay you will know you have experienced beautiful Barbados, not some all-inclusive hotel, crammed in with other tourists.
We are in a neighborhood – actually it’s a quaint fishing village which we believe is paradise.
If you don't want to venture any further than across the road, you can visit 'Jack's Bush Bar,' listed in Zagat’s as famous for pork chops and noisy Thursday night Karaoke.
Or, support the local fishermen next door and buy the freshest fish or lobster possible.
We are 7 minutes by car from Bridgetown, the Soccer/cricket stadium, and shops galore. 20 minutes to Holetown. Carlton's supermarket, in Black Rock, is close, 7 minutes by car or a 15-20 minute walk. Super-Centre, or Cost U Less in Warrens, is a short drive away. Royal Bank of Canada, the closest bank, is 'just up the road.' Also up the road is a petrol/convenience store open 24/7. Homesick for Pizza or hot dogs? It's the place!
There's lots to do in Barbados - festivals, homes tours, walking tours, botanical gardens, and of course rum tours. We are on the West coast where there is a plethora of wonderful dining spots. Street food is fabulous, good portions and cheap compared to restaurants!
