About the property

Lovely 2 bedroom condo across from beach

Welcome to Barbados!

I offer short-term (7 days) rentals and well as long-term rentals for those who want to be close enough to the action when it suits them, but far enough away to get some peace and quiet when they want to relax. The unit is fully equipped. There is air conditioning in each of the bedrooms and satellite TV in the living room. WIFI is also included.

The condo is directly across the street from a small beach. There is a store located a stones throw away, in case you run out of necessities, including wine, beer and rum! And you might spot a monkey or two in the trees or along the walls on our street, so have your camera ready!!!

About Dave

My name is Dave. I fell in love with the beautiful island of Barbados when I first visited with my father many years ago. My father was born and raised in Barbados and immigrated to Canada. He married my mother and the rest is is until I visited. I realized that this island if a part of me, a very big part of who I am. After years of visiting I decided to invest in the island and bought this condo. I named it Tappin's Island Condo as an homage to my family name and heritage.

Why Dave chose Saint Lawrence Gap

The only way for people to learn about this beautiful island is to come and visit and live as a local. You get to experience the heartwarming atmosphere, the beauty of the island, and the lovely people of the island. You are close to restaurants, various beaches, and lets not forget, the famous Oistins Fish Fry. If you like to surf, and paddle board, we have that too.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Dave. I just wanted to Thank you for letting us holiday in your beautiful condo. Everything worked out perfect for us. It is in a great location. As a family of four we were very comfortable. I did wash all the beach towels we used before we left and I washed majority of the bath towels also. Patrick was very helpful as well. We hope to stay there again. The wifi worked perfect for us as well. Thanks again. Jen

1st time in Barbados-April 2-12,2018. Loved it!

  • 4 of 5

Tappins Island was quiet and comfortable. The condo had everything we needed and was close to several imenities. The AC in the bedrooms was great. AC in the main living area would be great but I understand electricity is expensive in Barbados. The balcony offered a nice breeze to sit and enjoy. Pool area also offered shade to enjoy. The convenience store 2 minutes away was just that-convenient. A beautiful beach across the street-too bad about the fence that made access a bit difficult but do-able.

Because we arrived on a holiday Patrick had staple supplies(milk,eggs,bread,etc.)already there for us. Brian was also a good source for local info(restaurants and tours). We did several of his recommendations and were not disappointed by any of them. Transportation was easy. Lots of shuttles, buses and taxis. Good food places were Happy Days Café, Surfers Café, Oistins Fish Fry to name a few.

Also Dave has a binder of local information on the table that we found very helpful and referred to several times during our stay as well as a cell phone for use while there which was great for calling cabs or arranging tours.

Great Location!

  • 4 of 5

Dave's condo had everything you need for a great vacation. The location is awesome and within walking distance to The St. Lawrence Gap and Oisten's Fish Fry. A short walk to transportation will get you anywhere. We loved Lobster Live at Carlisle Bay. Beautiful beach with plenty of activities. People are very friendly and always say hello and wish you a great day. Dave's host Patrick was very helpful. We will be back, no doubt. Thanks Dave.

Thanks Dave!!

Tappins condo is a well situated condo in a complex on the southern coast - Maxwell Beach Area in Christ Church. It is between Oistens & St Lawrence Gap with restaurants and bars within walking distance.

We loved the condo as it had everything we could possibly need for the stay. Just bring your clothes & toiletries.

Dave the owner was available before and during our stay by email and answered very quickly each time. His agent Patrick met us there when we arrived and showed us everything and was available by text anytime we needed him and fortunately we only needed to text twice during our 18 day stay.

Thank you Dave we hope to rent your condo next time.

Everything about the stay was enjoyable for my friends and I. The place is so inviting makes you feel like you are at home there was nothing that we wanted. The photos also do the condo no justice at all it was nicer than we expected. Dave was very accommodating & greatly appreciated. Will definitely be back!

A spacious, well appointed apartment in a quiet location with easy access to beaches and buses.

  • 5 of 5

A lovely comfortable homely apartment with a well equipped kitchen, a balcony, beach chairs and towels. About 20 minutes from the airport and Dave arranged transport for us. In a quiet location but close to bus stops and in walking distance of Oistins and St Lawrence Gap. A good pub and Chinese restaurant only 5 minutes walk away and small supermarket 3 minutes walk. There is a small beach opposite and another beach which can be accessed through the hotel over the road. There is also a nice pool and jacuzzi.

There are plenty of beautiful beaches nearby including ones with turtles. Not far on the bus to Bridgetown. A lovely apartment in a good area and I would definitely go back.

Great trip, great condo!

  • 4 of 5

Within a 25 minute walk to Oistins, St. Lawerence Gap & Miami Beach. The sea breeze was incredible, condo fully stocked with everything you might need. Pool was chilly but the kids enjoyed it. Beach was fantastic. Bring bug spray & sunscreen!! Enjoyed the 2 weeks we spent at the condo & didn't want to come home!!
