About the property

This nicely furnished tropically themed 1-bedroom apartment is ideally suited for a couple or single person. The well-appointed European kitchen with breakfast bar is equipped with an electric oven, 4-zone ceramic hob, microwave, dishwasher, fridge/freezer, toaster, kettle, coffee-maker, espresso-maker, blender and all other necessary accouterments.

The property features a waterfall-fed communal pool and groomed tropical gardens. Perfect for a Caribbean holiday vacation close to the pulse but in a relaxing setting.

Crop Over: Crop Over, a five-week summer festival, is Barbados' most popular and colourful festival. It's origins can be traced back to the 1780's, a time when Barbados was the world's largest producer of sugar. At the end of the sugar season, there was always a huge celebration to mark the culmination of another successful sugar cane harvest - the Crop Over celebration.

As the sugar industry in Barbados declined, so too did the Crop Over festival and in the 1940's the festival was terminated completely. However, the festival was revived in 1974 and other elements of Barbadian culture were infused to make the extravaganza that exists today ..... an event that attracts thousands of people from across the globe.

Jazz Festival: The Premiere Jazz Festival of The Caribbean

The Barbados Jazz Festival, which celebrates the best in international and local jazz talent, has become a major annual Caribbean event.

The venues for the festival also reflect the diverse nature of the festival. The modern Sir Garfield Sobers gymnasium suits a large crowd. The open air Farley Hill National Park is ideal for a day of picnicking and jazz. The lovely Sunbury Plantation House is over 300 years old and steeped in history.

Thoroughbred Horse Racing: The racetrack in Barbados is at the Garrison Savannah which is less than two miles outside the capital Bridgetown. It has been the home of horse racing since the colonial days of 1845. The officers of the British Regiment who were stationed in Barbados, used what was then the parade ground to match their horses in races and the wealthy merchants and planters later joined them.

The Barbados Turf Club, which regulates and promotes horse racing in Barbados, was established in 1905 and organizes three (3) seasons of racing per year. These meetings run from January to April; May to August and from October to December.

The track is a 6 furlongs oval grass strip and races are run at distances of 5 furlongs (1000 meters); 5½ furlongs (1100 meters); 7.8 furlongs (1570 meters); 9 furlongs (1800 meters) and 10 furlongs (2000 meters), with the horses running in a clockwise (right handed) direction.

Wonderful apartment in a very quiet location but close to all amenities

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful small (two adults) apartment in a very quiet location close golf course and within walking distance to Rockley/Accra beach facility, shops and centrally located between Bridgetown and Oistins and not far from St Lawrence Gap.

The apartment boasts all household facilities making it feel like 'home from home'.

Initially it can be a little hard to find if you take a taxi from the airport and the driver does not know the area but if you follow the map provided and watch for the landmarks it should not he a problem.

The apartment complex, although small, is very well maintained and the local agent/manager, Brian, made us feel welcomed and on hand if and when any problems arise.

We'd definitely recommend this to anyone looking for somewhere to stay on the South West part of the island and I'm recommending it at the moment to my sister in Trinidad.

If and when we return to Barbados we'd look to stay here again.

A beautiful place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

This was our first holiday to Barbados and we have had the most amazing time. We had a long flight delay, but this was no trouble as Brian was happy to meet us at the apartment not matter how late we arrived. He was very welcoming and helpful. Cathrin, the owner always replies quickly to emails and answered all our questions.

The apartment is lovely, a real home from home. The complex is small and quiet and everyone was really friendly. The walk down to the beach does take 20-30 mins but we really enjoyed the walk. There is a car hire place nearby, Top car rentals, they were very helpful and we were able to hire a car at short notice.

The local ZR buses are brilliant, an experience not to be missed and at 2 barbadian dollars each, a very cheap way of travelling around the island.

The local supermarket, Masseys, is quite a walk away, probably about 30 mins which is not ideal in the heat but they do have a courtesy bus which will bring you home so this is perfect.

Eating out is quite expensive but we did enjoy some lovely places. Shakers is a must, look at the recent reviews on trip advisor. A little shack that we would have walked past, but the food was beautiful, would definitely recommend the blackened fish!! The staff were really friendly but you need to book as they are always busy.

A trip to St. Nicholas Abbey is also worth a visit, a beautiful setting, lots of history and a lovely cafe! So many wonderful memories of our first trip to Barbados, will not be our last. Thank you to Cathrin for providing such a lovely base.

Gorgeous apartment .....Tranquil

  • 5 of 5

This lovely little apartment was perfect for our stay, it is very quiet, but still only 5 minutes car ride into the "Gap", with plenty of restaurants. We rang a taxi each night from the home phone & they arrived promptly within 3 minutes every night (we did have a car, but only used this during the day to explore, as we do like our bottle of wine in the evenings). We saw monkeys playing daily from the balcony , even running across the pool area (which we had to ourselves), humming birds also visited constantly on the feeder, which we placed home made nectar in. ( 1 part sugar to 4 parts boiling water in a cup, allow to cool & fill up the feeder). We actually didn't want to leave the balcony ! However we did manage to explore all of this beautiful island.......The booking process was easy & Cathrin was always on hand for any questions via email. Brian from the management company met us at the apartment with the keys and showed us around, he was on hand if we needed him. Don't delay, book today, you won't regret it. We can't wait to go back, thank you Cathrin for letting us share your gorgeous home & to Brian for all your help.

Total Relaxation in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Where do we start! Cathrin's home had everything we needed and more! It was cozy, comfortable and clean and had every amenity you could think of. We loved that it was far enough away from the main street that it was quiet, and relaxing and we felt secluded but yet close enough that it was only a 15 min walk to the beach (Rockley/Accra). We ended up renting a car for a week to do some touring around. Drove to Bathsheba which was an amazing site to see! We did find the drive a bit challenging (directions, road conditions) so make sure you have a good map (Cathrin has maps in the coffee table) which we forgot to grab! We had a "Moke" for this trip. It's a small car like a Hyundai with the doors and roof cut out. It was hilarious watching my boyfriend get in and out of it! It was an adventure and we'll never forget it! Spent most of the mornings and early afternoons at different beaches. Miami Beach has the Mr.Delicious food truck serving flying fish sandwiches..a must have, and of course Banks beer and rum punch. Used the pool at Cathrin's almost daily and the lovely balcony in the evenings. Very peaceful place. Saw a lot of monkeys eating mangos outside the property. We fell in love with Barbados for so many reasons, especially the people, beaches, food, the weather, and hospitality. We will be back!

Owner's Response: I am always so tickled when my guests succumb to the charms of Barbados (while enjoying my apartment)! Reading your review lets me relive my first trips to the island in the late 1990s. I kept on coming back for more and hope that you will, too. I would be more than pleased to welcome you two back to Springcourt 6a!

Relaxing vacation in Barbados

  • 5 of 5

Dear Cathrine,

We so enjoyed staying in your beautiful Condo. It was everything you promised

it to be. From the moment we stepped in, it felt like home.

We had a great 2 1/2 weeks in Barbados. This was our first time to the Island.

and we loved it.

We were a group of 12 people from the USA and Germany, coming together for a

surprise 70th Birthday party. And they all stayed in different condos in the

Springcourt complex.

We loved to go to the pool, it was a great meeting place in the evenings. The walk to the beach was a 1/2 hour and very do-able. The neighborhood has pretty houses, trees, flowers, so that it was never boring. Of course the beach was our most favorite spot on the

Island.

Using the local bus was great fun, since the people are all so friendly, and them

speaking englisch is definitely a plus. If you rent a car you just have to remember that they drive on the other side of the road. One has to get used to that.

Next time we are in the need for a relaxing Beach vacation, we will most certainly

keep your beautiful place in mind.

Thank you

Car: recommended

The property is centrally located and yet situated at the end of a cul-de-sac in a quiet residential neighborhood adjacent to Rockley Golf & Country Club. Accra Beach and Crystal Waters are just one and two miles away. Vibrant St. Lawrence Gap, the heart of the island's night-life with many clubs, bars, and rum shops is 4 miles away. The wide choice of restaurants range from moderately priced to upscale and sure to please all tastes. The bustling capitol of Bridgetown, Grantley Adams Int'l Airport, Oistins for fish fry and the Sheraton Mall with multiplex cinema are all within an 8-miles radius. Supermarkets and banking are nearby as well as a post office and 24hr service station. One supermarket has a shuttle service free-of-charge. A car is recommended but not essential as there are plenty of taxis and buses (#9 & #11) operating nearby. Arrangements can be made so that a rental car will be waiting for you at the apartment along with a breakfast starter package for your first morning.
