About Richard Ward

We are a professional couple, in our 40's and live in Nottingham, England.

Richard Ward purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Richard Ward chose Saint Lawrence Gap

We have been coming to Barbados for so many years to enjoy the continuous sunshine and also to watch cricket we decided to buy. Where we have chosen is walking distance to all fabulous restaurants and bars and right on a stunning and secluded beach. Having a west facing balcony we can sit, relax and enjoy the sunsets - perfect!

What makes this apartment unique

Waking up every morning and seeing the Caribbean sea. We have internet facilities for those that can work remotely, 2 flat screen TVs for the bedroom and lounge and huge balcony. The best of both worlds secluded and private and a walk away from all the activities when you want them.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"We had an amazing trip to Barbados. We can see why you like it so much. Your villa was amazing really was home from home! I think it was our most relaxing holiday ever!" (Tricia Mahony April 2010).





Greetings Richard & Lisa, We returned from our trip to Barbados on Saturday and I just wanted to reach out to say THANK YOU! Your property was absolutely perfect for our vacation and in the perfect location! Additionally, Juliet was very welcoming and great to work with. We absolutely fell in love with Barbados and expect to return (hopefully soon!). Best Regards, Summer Horwitz (April 2014)

Superb condo ... great location on the beach ...

  • 5 of 5

The entire experience of staying here was superb. The condo was exactly as it had been presented in the photographs and description, always a great start. Beautifully clean, in fact the whole building was sparkling and always smelt of lovely cleaning products. We really couldn't fault a thing from our arrival to our departure. Everyone we came into contact with were friendly and helpful, a really lovely experience.

We are booking for next year without hesitation as the condo is situated on the beach and steps away from all the amenities of The Gap ... Even beach towels were provided plus beautifully soft white towels in the bathrooms. In fact the whole condo was pristine with every kitchen implement one could wish for made available plus washing up liquid, soaps in the bathrooms and loo rolls which was a lovely surprise.

Many thanks for a superb holiday ... can't wait to revisit.

Beautiful apartment

  • 5 of 5

Amazing apartment with everything you could possibly need. We hired a car so got to see whole island but so nice to come back and chill on the balcony after a busy day. It is quiet and no noise from bars etc but still close to restaurants and supermarkets and bars. Highly recommended

First class property in a prime location

  • 5 of 5

This is our 3rd stay in Villa S at White Sands Beach Villas. White Sands is a wonderful apartment block in a prime location right on the beach and within walking distance of restaurants and bars in St Lawrence Gap, but in a quiet area so you are not disturbed by bars and clubs at night. Villa S is situated on the west side of the building so has a lovely view of the sea and the wonderful sun sets. The apartment is excellent and is fully equipped and has everything you need to make your holiday fully flexible, so easy to eat in or out. If you have any problems at all then Juliette and Franklyn are on hand to sort things out (not that we have needed them!). The staff at White Sands are so friendly and helpful and the whole building and grounds are highly maintained. We love staying here and have already booked our trip for 2018. I would highly recommend this apartment.

A Sweet Spot

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time at this beachfront condo. It had everything we needed and more...we were met by the property manager who provided us with a comprehensive tour of the facility and unit. He was very professional and courteous. The condo was stocked with the essentials. It was very clean and well maintained. The bedroom leads to the terrace which is a great way to welcome the ocean breeze into the bedroom. The bed was very comfortable. We cooked many of our meals and loved having our meals on the terrace with the ocean in the background. It was a nice romantic setting.

We would highly recommend this property. The beach is nice. The unit had beach towels and lounge chairs to use. There is also a small pool at the complex - very clean. Everything is in walking distance or a short bus ride to local attractions such as the local fish fry at Oistens. We had a car so we could get around the island. The complex has parking and security is on duty in the evenings. It truly was a sweet spot. We look forward to staying at this condo again. Thank you.

Superb beachfront apartment

  • 5 of 5

We recently booked this apartment and it was our first visit to Barbados. Previously we had always gone for a top brand all inclusive Hotel but wanted to experience more of the Island than you would normally see on an all inclusive holiday.

From the start we were impressed with the help we got from the owners and the management team, offers of getting a shop in and all transfers were arranged with ease.

We have booked private accommodation before but only in Europe and some were good, some not so. On arrival we were really pleased with the quality and size of the accommodation and how great the facilities were, dishwasher good cooker etc. We couldn't believe our luck when we discovered it was on such a lovely beach.

As with the previous reviewer it seemed very homely and we felt totally relaxed staying there, something I haven't really experienced elsewhere it really felt like a home from home.

We had a fantastic holiday, made extra special but such a lovely apartment, all the other tenants were very friendly and it had a small community feel to the place.

I highly recommend this apartment for anyone wishing a relaxing quality holiday on a beautiful island.

My only disappointment was. I wish I'd booked 3 weeks instead of two!

Needless to say we will be returning very shortly and re booking this great apartment, and judging by the number of guests who re book I'm not alone.

A huge thanks to Richard and Lisa for making our holiday really memorable
