Overview

About the property

Condominium, 1 Bedroom, 2.0 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 2)

Romance-seekers: look no further than Watercolours, a one-bedroom, two-bath corner condo poised three floors above the sea in the St. Lawrence Gap, Barbados. 

Tuck into your own glass-enclosed nest with your sweetheart and spend late mornings in a luxury king-sized bed. Two floor-to-ceiling windows meet at a right angle in this spectacular corner bedroom, so a 270-degree view of the sea is all yours—from moonlit night to Technicolor morning. 

Or read side-by-side on a lounging couch in an enclosed patio that, when you open the sea-view window running the length of the wall, lets in warm Caribbean breezes and the hush of rolling waves. 

Then prepare a terrific meal in your compact kitchen outfitted in stainless steel and stocked with all appliances, cookery, and dinnerware you could possibly need. 

The market is a short stroll away, so you can easily get all the ingredients you need to cook at your home away from home. But why cook when the street right outside is lined with fabulous restaurants. 

WHAT MAKES WATERCOLOURS SPECIAL? 

This is our own personal home, which we rent when we’re traveling or visiting our families. For that reason, Watercolours has all the spotlessness, inviting décor and comfortable furnishings of a personal home (because it is!), and it provides absolutely everything you need to feel as at home here as we are. 

We chose the name Watercolours because of the hues that greet you when you step through the door—from the artwork and designer furnishings in shades of blue, beige and gold, to the dazzling sapphire sea. 

This spot, on the southern shore of Barbados, is where the Atlantic meets the Caribbean and the result combines the colors of paradise with the energy and white-capped waves of the Atlantic. 

ABOUT THE LOCATION 

At Watercolours, you’ll be within an easy walk to all of the St. Lawrence Gap’s authentic local restaurants, shops, and a grocer, plus a 7-minue walk to two great beaches. Or swim from the very private beach outside the condo. 

Save the money and hassle of renting a car and take a $20 taxi (with tip) from the airport to the condo, and then walk everywhere or catch the $2 island shuttle. 

The oceanfront here at Watercolours is a perfect little halfmoon of a beach, just big enough for entry into the bath-warm water where you might even enjoy the company of a giant, gentle sea turtle. 

And there’s a swimming pool on the property, too, for humans-only swimming. At sunset, enjoy the gold and pink skies as you watch the setting sun from the island's only privately owned jetty in your back yard.

If Watercolours is unavailable for the dates you’re traveling, I would be happy to show you other beautiful seafront Barbadian condos in the St. Lawrence Gap. Please contact me and let’s start planning your vacation to Barbados :) 

All best regards, 

Jane Shattuck

We Found Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this gorgeous condo for 12 magnificent nights! The views are absolutely stunning!! When we entered the condo we couldn't believe our eyes. The windows open up the full expanse of the wall and you can enjoy the sound of the crashing waves and the beautiful aqua color of the ocean. You get the same effect in the master bedroom but on both sides! The condo is very nicely furnished and very clean. The kitchen is fully stocked; you only need to buy food and some sundries. We felt like we were in heaven each day that we spent there. The pool area was very nice to get some sun and relax. The restaurants were awesome and the food & drinks were phenomenal. Ricardo, Jerry, Monica and Abby were so kind and very accommodating. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves in this gorgeous place we called "Paradise"; hopefully we will be returning next year!

Thank you Jane for allowing us the opportunity to spend our vacation in this extraordinary home. We had the best vacation; it was so relaxing and we love Barbados...so much so that we are thinking of retiring there!

Thanks again!

A 5-star gem!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is an immaculate, charming jewel box! With such great exposure in every room to the sea, it was hard to leave. But we did, of course, taking many of Jane’s recommendations, which were much appreciated. My husband and I have stayed at countless VRBO’s, AirB&B’s and Flipkeys over the years and we’ve never been handed such accurate landing info and advise. Now I’m spoiled!

Day 2 we toured the island with Seymour—enjoyed the Animal and Flower Cave and general introduction to the island. I asked if he could take us to Hunte’s Gardens, which are stunning-- not to be missed. The Friday Oisten’s Fish Fry was a blast—we got there at 5:30 and ate at Moe’s by the bandstand. A great recommendation by Bertie, our driver, and a super nice man. Loved the snorkeling trip on the Catamaran with Miami. Uncrowded and fun.

Loved morning walks on Dover Beach and frolicking in the waves beneath the condo. Thank you, Jane, for being such an exemplary and delightful host!

Location

Car: not necessary

BARBADOS, THE SOUTH COAST, & THE ST. LAWRENCE GAP

The south coast of Barbados is known for its beautiful white beaches, the famous Oistins Fish Fry on Friday nights, and its friendly vibe where you'll find locals (called Bajans) and tourists alike.

The St. Lawrence Gap ("gap" means "street") is the area on the south coast that is a favorite destination for both locals and tourists. Lots of quaint small businesses, delicious restaurants, colorful shops, and more—all within walking distance of your condo. A car is not necessary; a taxi to and from the airport is likely all you’ll need.

Known as "The Jewel of the Caribbean," Barbados has more repeat visitors than any of the Caribbean islands and, according to the Caribbean Tourism Organisation (CTO), 34% of all arrivals to Barbados are repeat visitors. It's easy to see why: The climate averages ideal temperatures in the winter of 75-82 degrees Fahrenheit and in summer a warmer but still lovely 88-92. Gentle trade-winds from the sea keep us cool and we rarely turn on the air-conditioning, although it's available throughout our unit. People are friendly, the sea is crystal clear, and the rum fantastic.

A perfect holiday getaway. If you have any questions, I invite you to contact me about this or any of the vacation rental properties I offer. We are experts on all things Barbados, so feel free to ask about the must-see places and activities to explore during your trip. I know your holiday time is limited—I will do everything I can to help you make the most of your stay in beautiful Barbados.

Thanks for looking,
