About John Chadd
We are a retired couple who have been coming to Barbados for over forty years. We love the island for the perfect climate, the beautiful beaches and clear, warm turquoise sea, the friendly, laid-back and helpful people and the safe environment. We have been to the island on over fifty occasions and always look forward greatly to our visits and are always sorry to leave despite living in a lovely part of England.
John Chadd purchased this Apartment in 2002
Why John Chadd chose Saint Lawrence Gap
It is brilliantly situated only a few metres from the sea and in the centre of St Lawrence Gap with it's great range of restaurants and other attractions. There is a well stocked convenience store next door and a supermarket a few hundred yards away. The apartment overlooks the secluded Mistle Cove beach and the famous Dover Beach is less than five minutes walk away. It would be hard to imagine a better situated apartment building than Mistle Cove.
What makes this Apartment unique

Fantastic apartment in great location
We had an amazing holiday at St Lawrence Gap made all the more special with our beautiful apartment. Communication was excellent, Orissa and Greg from the agents couldn't have been more helpful during our stay. The apartment was wonderful, clean, spacious an absolute joy to stay in. At one side is a great range of bars and.restaurants, offering a great evening out whilst at the other side a stunning private beach and.gardens.It really is 2 worlds in one location. Perfect for an.escape to paradise and vibrant evening. Couldn't recommend enough, can't wait to return.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Mistle Cove and were impressed by John's communication and efficiency. The apartment is spacious, tastefully decorated and well-equipped with comfy beds and great air-conditioning in the bedrooms if the heat gets too much! It is secure, the grounds are well-tended and everything was really clean. The people at Rex Realty who welcome you and deal with any issues were professional and helpful. There were turtles laying almost every night on the little beach, and hatchlings on one night. We were delighted to see that the restaurant next door showed a real concern for their welfare.The apartment is in the middle of St Lawrence Gap and really convenient, and we found it hard to believe that there was all the nightlife on one side of the apartment and turtles on the beach on the other. It is really easy to travel up and down the West coast by bus/ minibus, as the service is very frequent and cheap, if a little hair-raising at times.
This was important as the South-West coast was badly affected by seaweed while we there and Dover Beach was virtually deserted. We did swim off the Mistle Cove Beach where there was somehow less seaweed, but the waves were sometimes quite big. All the locals say the seaweed is seasonal and it did appear to be clearing when we left. Worthing Beach was also closed due to a sewage problem, but it is 10 minutes in a minivan to Carlisle Bay where the water and the snorkeling were fantastic.
Hand soap and toilet paper was provided in the apartment when we arrived, but nothing else. Basic supplies like a bit of washing liquid or a few dishwasher tablets would be very welcome: we took our own teabags from home. There is a convenience store next door, but be prepared for some eye-watering prices! The best supermarket is Massy Stores at Worthing, where you can amazingly buy a full range of Waitrose products (at a price). Great pool towels were provided in the apartment but if towels are important to you, take a couple, as the bath towels were on the small side. Make sure you take heavy duty mosquito repellent if you want to sit outside in the evenings: there were some anti-mosquito devices in the flat but we couldn't get them to work.
We thoroughly recommend a stay at Mistle Cove: we had a great holiday and it makes a fantastic base for exploring the island. Thank you John!
Wonderful property in a great location on St Lawrence Gap. Close to bars and restaurants, but not effected by the noise of these at all. The property is lovely and is a real home from home. Loved watching the turtles nest on the beach at night, a real privilege. The owner John arranged for a taxi to pick us up on arrival and also advised of a good car hire company. Barbados and its people are wonderful, very friendly and hospitable. We dived extensively with Barbados Blue, fantastic dive centre and had the boat to ourselves most of the time - never seen so many turtles. Highly recommended.
Absolutely amazing, faultless
We had a wonderful holiday at Mistle Cove. What an amazing location. Our apartment was 10ft away from the beach. Lots of space and the beach and gardens are well kept. The gap is buzzing with lots of restaurants and bars and beautiful beaches.
Great property in a great location
Very spacious two bedroom directly on the ocean. We were able to hear the waves crashing on the shore the entire time we were there. There is a small beach directly behind the complex which our children loved. The grounds and the pool were well maintained and we mostly felt like we had the entire place to ourselves. Close walk to the big beach and multiple restaurants.
A fantastic apartment in a fantastic location
If you have never been to St. Lawrence Gap before then you should definitely give it a try. If you have been there but haven't stayed at 102 Mistle Cove then you are missing out on a fabulous apartment positioned in the nicest location in the resort.
I travelled as part of a party of 4 - 2 sisters and their husbands. This was a repeat of a holiday from twelve months ago other than the decision to find an apartment rather than say in a hotel.
From the very start all e-mail exchanges with John Chadd were first class; here is an owner who is intent on ensuring that visitors to his lovely apartment are made most welcome.
On arriving at Mistle Cove we were met by a lovely American lady named Jobi who explained absolutely everything we needed to know about lights, ac unit operation, access and egress to the gated community, satellite TV functions etc. etc. By the time she left us we had clear and precise information that would ensure that our holiday would be problem free.
The apartment is extremely spacious and its ground floor location ensured that you weren't having to ascend flights of stairs or wait for the lift. There is a flight of about half a dozen steps which gets you from the private carpark up to the apartment block entrance - other that that there are no issues for any visitors who have mobility difficulties.
The entire resort is pretty level - certainly there are no steep gradients to trouble you as you stroll around in the sunshine.
The apartment block is superbly maintained and we noticed frequent visits from the pool cleaning man, the gardeners and the the handy man. Absolutely everything was being done to ensure that your stay was as enjoyable as it could be.
The balcony is huge and has a table and 4 chairs where we enjoyed our breakfasts every morning. There are also a couple of really comfortable easy chairs if you wanted to spend an hour reading a good book.
The kitchen is superbly appointed and the fridge/ freezer boasted chilled water and ice cubes to enable you to drink the tap water. There is no need to buy in water - the tap water is eminently drinkable.
There is an easy to use key-less safe in one of the bedrooms where your passports, cash and expensive electronic equipment can be safely stored. The key-less operation also means that you don't have the problem of keeping a safe key in your pockets when out and about.
If you are debating whether of not to book 102 Mistle Cove I urge you to go for it. You won't regret it.
Top sights to be seen in Barbados include the Crane Beach, Bathsheba and the rugged East Coast, A day out in one of the catamarans such as Tiami or Cool Runnings is another treat not to be missed!!
