Overview

About the property

2 AC bedroom apartment to sleep 4-6, Barbados, exclusive West Coast

This beachfront-apartment is situated on the exclusive West Coast of Barbados. The spacious and well fit out accommodation harmoniously blends contemporary amenities with some antique mahogany furniture: An ideal place to unwind in Caribbean atmosphere, a romantic getaway for couples, but also well suited for a family holiday.

The condominium is separated from the beach by a road with local traffic only.

BEDROOMS: (1) main bedroom with queen size bed, upstairs; (2) with two twin beds, downstairs. One sofa bed for two in the living room upstairs.

BATHROOMS: (1) Modern ensuite bathroom upstairs with shower, wash basin, toilet, cupboard, having also direct access from the living room. (2) "Half bathroom" (toilet + wash basin) next to sleeping room downstairs.

More details, Ground floor:

(i) large modern Italian kitchen where 4-6 can dine;

(ii) small bedroom with two twin beds, AC and ceiling fan; toilet adjoining this room;

(iii) small patio (ideal for breakfast for two), flowers, external shower.

More details, Upper floor:

(i) pleasant bedroom with queen size bed, AC+ceiling fan;

(ii) modern en suite bathroom, with a second access to the

(iii) living room with its comfortable seating for up to 8 persons, sofa-bed, WiFi, Smart TV, DVD, radio, music dock (apple, bluetooth & cable connect), book shelves, ceiling fan.

The unhurried, relaxing atmosphere continues to the

(iv) covered balcony, fitted with a large sun shade, two sun-loungers, and a table with four chairs. The balcony is ideal for dining al fresco.

From the balcony of the apartment you have a direct view of the azure Caribbean sea looking southwest and northwest. In between is a small house, the future first class restaurant Hugo's.

Beaches: North of Speightstown you have a long stretch of beaches. Just over the road from the apartment is a sandy beach with two palm trees and a large bush giving good shade. In just 5 minutes walking distance to the north along the coast you reach the long Heywoods beach (with many trees providing shadow), stretching from the Almond Beach Resort to the famous beach in front of Port St. Charles. South of Speightstown is the well known Mullins Beach and many others further south. We love not only Heywoods beach but also the beach south of the Lone Star Hotel (excellent but expensive dining) with access from the Adventist church. The Folkestone Park in Holetown is another beach with shadow and good snorkeling in the reef.

Please remember: All beaches are open to the public and access is a right for everybody. Properties which front onto a beach own the land to the high-water mark only. So you can stroll and relax along the beach even in front of very expensive hotels. We provide for our guests a large and a small sun umbrella, two foldable beach loungers, different small beach chairs, beach towels.

Golf courses: Famous golf courses are in easy driving distance (Royal Westmoreland, Sandy Lane), but there are many other ones as well.

Visits: see North Point (Flower Cave) and the Scotland District with Bathsheba on the East Coast, offering breathtaking views of the ocean. Drive southwards to the Barbadian heritage Codrington College. Harrison's Cave in the center of the island is an amazing gallery of stalactites and stalagmites. See Orchid World, or Wildlife Preserve, and many other touristic spots.

Visit also the 300-year-old Sunbury Plantation House, the only Great House on Barbados where all the rooms are open for viewing. This house features mahogany antiques, old prints and a unique collection of horse-drawn carriages.

If you like winery tours, you will enjoy a rum tour at the Mount Gay rum distillery in Bridgetown, where you learn how rum is made from sugar cane and you can shop the probably best rum of Barbados at a good price. Visit also the Sugar Museum, just off Highway 2A, an exhibition of how sugar was produced in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. The Portvale Sugar Factory nearby seems to be only slightly younger.....

VISIT BARBADOS DURING THE FIRST WEEK IN AUGUST, THE PEAK OF THE CROP OVER FESTIVAL.

Eating, drinking, and related enjoyments: The "Orange grocer", ''Nino's by the sea" and "Fisherman´s Pub" are just 4-5 min walking south of the apartment and offer good and fairly priced food or a pleasant drink. Very good but more expensive is the the Lobster Pot in the centre of Speightstown, as well as the excellent "Juma´s" restaurant, and next to it "L`Attitude" beach bar and grill. Last not least, good and very affordable, the "Island Plates" restaurant on the eastern side of the Market Place (opposite Jordan's supermarket). Of course there are different Take Aways in town as well.

Higher priced restaurants with a very pleasant atmosphere are the "Fish Pot", on the sea, 2 km north of the apartment, and the "Lone Star" Restaurant in direction of Holetown, and very soon to come Hugo's opposite the White Sands condominium. Very good is also the restaurant/bar "Zaccios" in Holetown. BA says, its the third best beach bar in the whole world ....

In Bathsheba: the recommended "Round House", and the new "Atlantis" hotel and restaurant.

You should visit the capital Bridgetown and sip a cocktail or dine at the "Waterfront Cafe" (yacht harbor near old bridge). After this go Shopping in the nearby area on the other side of the harbor (High Street, Broad Street, Cheapside and side streets).

Each Friday and Saturday night hundreds of locals and visitors go to Oistins for the Fish-Fry, an opportunity to enjoy the best local food - fried and grilled fish, fish cakes, sweet potato, and much more. Be early to find a parking place.

Farm fresh produce is sold every day on the streets of Speightstown. Before buying there, inform yourself about the normal prices asked in the supermarkets. An interesting place to visit on Saturday morning is the "Brighton Farmers Market" at Brighton Plantation, tel. 429 2639, in the St George Valley. Run by owners Michael and Alison Pile on their 17th century plantation, it has become an extremely popular social outing for families. A children’s play area has been added, along with a large number of picnic tables on the lawns and a café area serving freshly brewed coffee. Stalls are normally up and ready to go by 6am (open until about 10 am) and offer a wide range of homemade produce from bread and cakes to Thai spring rolls, pickles and chutneys, meat pies, sweets and jams, plus local artwork, jewelry and handicrafts.

About Maria or Thilo

The owners Maria and Thilo are both geologists, travelling a lot. They were looking for a safe harbor in an area not overcrowded by tourists, and found it here in Speightstown.

Maria or Thilo purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Maria or Thilo chose St. Peter

We stayed many years in Barbados and preferred always the west coast as compared to the much more crowded south, where the ocean waves are often high. Our property is facing the beach of the so called 'platinum coast', the area has some tourism but is not at all overcrowded by tourists. Expensive properties like Port St. Charles are in walking distance.

What makes this apartment unique

An ideal place to unwind in real Caribbean atmosphere, a romantic getaway for couples, but also well suited for a family holiday. The apartment is quite large and well equipped with modern and some antique mahogany furniture. The kitchen is well stocked with electric eqipment and everything else you might need.

The Coral Sands beachfront apartment is situated on the exclusive West Coast of Barbados, overlooking the white, sandy beach, where you can swim, snorkel or dive. The condo is situated at the northern end of the city centre of Speightstown, just 300 metres north of St. Peters church. You can walk in a few minutes to the historical centre of Speightstown ('Little Bristol'), a city protected for its cultural and historical value. You find banks, shops, supermarkets, pharmacies, restaurants and bars. During the week you observe the pulsating life of a small busy Caribbean town: colorfully dressed, friendly ladies sell local fresh fruit and vegetables, fishermen bring the catch of the day to the fish market and you hear reggae music from cars or during festivals at Speightstown Esplanade.

A small beach house opposite the White Sands condominium is presently renovated and will become the new, high-class restaurant "Hugo's".

The beautiful rugged East Coast, famous among surfers, with its breathtaking views, is only a few kilometers away. White Sands is close to the golf courses of Royal Westmoreland (10 minutes by car), Sandy Lane (20 minutes) and others. Pulsating touristic Holetown is only 15 min away. This gives you the best of two worlds: a quiet haven on the edge of where it is all happening.
