Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday condo in Christ Church - 103 Sapphire Beach Condos

2 bedroom, 2 bath beachfront Sapphire Beach Condo

Bring your family to this relaxing, colorful beachfront condo on the wide, flour-soft shores of Dover Beach in the St. Lawrence Gap.

The two separate floors at Sapphire #103—with one bedroom on each floor—let you enjoy time together and privacy when you want it. Especially convenient for families, whether infants, older children, or teenagers.

Just outside your door, Dover Beach offers plenty of family fun, from stand-up paddling to boogie boarding to splashing in the brilliant aqua waves. Not to mention the 2 private swimming pools and landscaped tropical gardens.


Both the top and bottom floors at Sapphire #103 have their own patios. On the top floor, the shaded balcony faces a big view of tumbling turquoise waves framed by swaying palms. Separate lounge and dining areas out on the balcony coax you into spending an entire day in the Caribbean breezes—from afternoon naps to sunset dinners.

Speaking of dinner: you can create a delicious one with ingredients from the Dover Market, located just across the street from Sapphire Beach Condos. The kitchen at Sapphire #103 features high-end stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, and all the cooking utensils you need. The condo’s open layout, combined with countertop seating in the kitchen, makes it easy for the cook to stay in the loop with everyone else while they work their culinary magic.


Both bedrooms have their own attached baths—another perk if you’re wanting privacy on your vacation.

The ground-floor bedroom sleeps 2 in a pair of twin beds that can also be combined into a king-sized bed. A wonderful feature in this bedroom is the huge sliding glass door that opens to create a fully indoor/outdoor space. Through this door you’ll find a second patio with 2 lounge chairs tucked into tropical landscaping.

Upstairs, the second bedroom suite is accessed through French doors and welcomes you to a restful night in a king-sized bed.


Located on the south shore of Barbados, St. Lawrence Gap is a safe and authentic slice of the island, offering tons of activities to keep you busy. Eat fresh, local seafood at eateries ranging from street vendors to upscale restaurants. Dance the night away to reggae. Get some great souvenirs, handmade by locals.

Best of all, you can walk to the best of St. Lawrence Gap from your condo—yet you’re tucked away from the hustle-bustle.

Nearly 34% of Barbados visitors have visited us before—the highest percent of return visitors in all of the Caribbean. We credit the spectacular climate and calm weather (we haven’t had a hurricane since the '50s), the friendly people, and of course, the natural beauty that surrounds us here.

Start your family’s vacation tradition in Barbados. Contact me today to ask any questions you have about Barbados, the area, this lovely apartment, or to go ahead and book your paradise getaway.

Thank you,

Jane Shattuck

About Jane Shattuck 246-230-8594

Hello from Barbados! My husband Greg and I own two beachfront vacation rentals on the south coast of Barbados and I represent other owners' similar properties as well, including #103 in the Sapphire Beach Condos, owned by a lovely woman from Canada.

Jane Shattuck 246-230-8594 purchased this condo in 2012

Why Jane Shattuck 246-230-8594 chose Christ Church

The Sapphire Beach Condos is beautifully designed. All of the apartments in the building offer outstanding, jaw-dropping Caribbean Sea views and a spacious and comfortable living space with easy access to one of Barbados' prettiest sugar-white beach.

The apartment itself offers comfort and luxury and all that modern traveler desire in the way of wi-fi, air-conditioning, appliances galore (even a washer and dryer are in the apartment) AND is located on one of the island's most beautiful beaches, Dover Beach, on the south coast.

From your apartment, #103 Sapphire, you'll awaken to a beautiful, warm sun rising over in the eastern sky over the azure Caribbean Sea lapping onto a sugar-white sandy beach ... and you'll savor every moment of your holiday in Barbados.


What makes this condo unique

Restaurants galore are within a very short stroll out your front door. Out your back are two gorgeous pools and the beach and sea.

The famous and lively St Lawrence Gap is down the street a very short distance; here you'll find night life and shops and be able to soak up local 'Bajan' culture.

Practical aspects of your vacation are looked after as well: You have private parking immediately outside your apartment; a laundry room in your apartment (always handy to have on holiday); a small (and quite good) market just down the street; and a medical facility about half a mile away. There's a workout room in the condo building and security is present 24/7 - nice to have even though Barbados is considered a safe vacation destination.

The building is family-friendly but also much-enjoyed by friends traveling together as well as romantic getaways.

Thanks for taking a look at this pretty apartment; if you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Warm regards from paradise,

Jane Shattuck

A great getaway place in Barbados

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place! It was exactly as described, with a pool right out the door and access to beautiful Dover Beach incredibly easy, just a few steps through a gate. We were four single women travelling together, and the unit accommodated us perfectly. We felt very safe, as the security on the property was great. The property was clean and well maintained, we were greeted and oriented to the property as soon as we arrived. The location is good in the St Lawrence Gap although this area, which we understand was once a trendy and happening place, has suffered a bit from a drop in tourism and was actually rather quiet. This, however, could be a good thing for many tourists. The beach was absolutely amazing! White sand, beautiful water, and just enough other beachgoers for good company, but not too crowded. We did suffer a bit of sticker shock as groceries were very expensive ( not a lot of Agriculture on the island so almost everything has to be flown in). Food from vendors and restaurants was likewise pricey, but it was cheaper than trying to eat in. Bring plenty of cash, we were told Visas were accepted everywhere, but many many vendors required cash. All in all, we had a lovely stay at the Sapphire Beach Resort.

This Felt Better than a Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

To summarize how great our stay was, we had a serious conversation about buying one of the condos available. When was the last time you went on vacation and stayed at a place so great that not only you felt like you ought to come back, but you decided to buy it?

The staff was responsive, always present and ready to help. The location was as great as described, but the pictures don't do it justice because it does not show all the angles of the layout. What you have is a well layout floor plan with wide balconies overseeing a clean and well-maintained kid-friendly pool. The place is safe and secure requiring access codes and keys to come in and out.

The beach in front of the property is welcoming with thin white sand and non-aggressive tides. You can rent chairs and umbrellas and lounge yourself to oblivion. The nearby restaurants provide food and beverages to your relaxation, and you can even rent jet skis right there on the beach.

Since the Condo is located in St Lawrence Gap, you are a walking distance away from several great restaurants, bars, karaoke, and clubs. You would not need to go far to get your party on, but should you choose to, a slew of cabs are either parked out front or drive by on a consistent basis.

Owner's Response: Greetings, It sounds as though you really enjoyed a sublime beach vacation in Barbados. #103 Sapphire Beach Condos is a family favorite (also popular with couples). Ha, you are not the first guest to this island to inquire about purchasing a place here!! Aren't the local eateries fun? You have choices of high-end dining such as Beach One - so elegant and right on the sea - as well as the super-duper casual BBQs along the St Lawrence Gap serving chicken, burgers, and fish ... about as laid-back a dining experience as you can get but oh so good. Thanks for choosing #103 for your stay and I look forward to seeing you again in Barbados for your next visit in paradise :) Best regards, Jane

A perfect home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This was simply one of the most comfy places we ever stayed at, not to mention the perfect pool and gorgeous beach right outside. We felt at home and safe as property is gated and the property manager was very accommodating. Lots of eateries within walking distance. This made our anniversary perfect.

Thanks, Jane, we'll be back!

Owner's Response: Ellen and Bob, I am delighted that you had a special and memorable anniversary in Barbados ... specifically in #103 Sapphire Beach Condominiums. Thank you for choosing this pretty place for your stay. You're so right about the beach ... Dover Beach is dreamy - that sugar-white we all dream of in a Barbados beach - and just steps from your apartment. I wish you another year of wedding bliss ... see you again in Barbados! Best regards from paradise and many thanks for your lovely note, Jane Shattuck

Simply Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful Holiday! Jane was fabulous in determining our needs and assisting us with the details. Unit 103 was perfect for our family of 2 adults and 2 teenagers - clean, comfortable and beautiful ocean views. Jane recommended the Hilton for New Years Eve and it was the ideal celebration - great dj and band for dancing, wonderful food, nice fireworks. Festivities were all right on the beach and it was the perfect way to ring in the New Year! We highly recommend Barbados Blue for all scuba and snorkeling needs - they took excellent care of our family, very knowledgeable and extremely helpful. Can't say enough good things about this vacation!

#103 Sapphire Beach Condos is your beautiful and very comfortable home-away-from-home while you explore and enjoy the beautiful island of Barbados. Guests often ask me what they shouldn't miss when they're visiting. Here's a very subjective list to get you going:

1. A catamaran cruise. A fantastic way to enjoy the Caribbean Sea, snorkel, swim with our beautiful sea turtles, and enjoy a day on the sea in a safe, fun, very stable boat. The cat cruise companies pick you up and drop you off, so no rental car is necessary.

2. Dining out. Barbados is for foodies! Enjoy local favorites such as flying fish - or whatever yummy fish has been caught that morning - with a distinctive Caribbean flavor. Paired with the island's classic rice and peas, fresh veggies, your meal will be prepared any number of creative ways, primarily Creole. Try PRIMO, world-class and just down the street. Or casual LUIGI's for Italian, just a stroll from your condo. And so many others ... you won't go hungry in Barbados.

3. Stand-up Paddling. The sea at Dover Beach is calm enough to try stand-up paddling, a great way to view sealife beneath the water.

4. Get out and explore the island. It's fun to see the countryside, to explore our beautiful beaches, to try restaurants on the west and east coasts, to meet locals at the many rum shops sprinkled throughout the island. Yes, you'll get lost ... (I call getting lost "taking the scenic route") ... this is part of the fun.

Whether you park yourself in a lounger on the beach and don't move for the entirety of your vacation or satisfy your need to explore, you'll have a fantastic vacation in Barbados. There's a reason (actually many) why Barbados sees more repeat visitors than any of the Caribbean islands. Come find out for yourself! And please, please don't hesitate to reach out to me with any questions you have.

Happy travels,

Jane Shattuck
