As a born and bred Barbadian, Sir Allan Fields aspired to owning a property on the unique Platinum coast in Barbados, famous for its white sand beaches, water sports, restaurants and up-market atmosphere that is synonymous with Port St Charles.
The opportunity presented itself earlier this year when the this property became available. It was purchased, completely refurbished with modern appliances., high speed internet access throughout and comfortable yet elegant furnishings.
We have just stayed in this exceptionally serene and beautiful property for a week and had to force ourselves out when our time was up. It is the kind of place you feel at home the instant you arrive and are taken care of from start to finish. With Allan the ever so gracious host, to the fully self-sufficient accommodation, you are made to feel a sense of comfort, relaxation, elegance and luxury. What more could you want on a holiday?
Just got back to the UK after an amazing stay in port st Charles. Allan was a fantastic host and could not have been more helpful, organising a crib and highchair for our daughter. the villa is beautiful, fully fitted kitchen with all the equipment you'll need. laundry room with huge American style top loader machines. Great wifi throughout the villa was a bonus and was useful for keeping the kids entertained during the midday sun. spent Many a hour on the terrace with the kids playing in the pool and we also rented a paddle board which we kept on the marina. I thoroughly recommend port st Charles for anyone considering Barbados as its a private Marina community with excellent security, great beaches, the Yacht club with a swim up bar and great food. five stars all the way. we will be back next year
We have just returned from a month in beautiful Barbados, our first 3 weeks staying at Spinnaker in Port St Charles which proved to be beyond our expectations, when we walked into the property it was a wow to see all the water and boats which was amazing, everyday it just got better as we discovered the beach very close by and then saw turtles on a regular basis, we even had one visit our pontoon outside one morning while eating our breakfast.
We visited some wonderful restaurants nearby including Jumas, The Fish Pot and 1359 at Port Ferdinand, the Yaucht Club for lunch was wonderful as we used the water taxi which was always available to take us to the beach or pool if we were too lazy for the short stroll through the beautiful grounds of Port St Charles, we always felt very safe as the security was first class. We couldn't fault anything and found the owner to be very helpful with any queries we had during our stay, we would not hesitate to recommend this property to anyone and can't wait to go back next year hopefully for longer.
Port St. Charles offers the best beach in all of Barbados. As we were there during spring break, we expected a crowded beach. Instead, it was an empty and serene setting -- with warm, still waters that allowed us to swim with no worries. Oh, and did we mention the really cool turtles?
Although the water taxi is a value add, the villa is conveniently located and equidistant to the beach, pool and yacht club/restaurant. It is meticulously clean, with modern décor. And traveling with four teen girls, the en suite bathroom in each bedroom was a welcome relief. In the evenings, we enjoyed hanging out on the deck with frozen pina coladas (yes, the villa comes with a great blender) and the dipping pool. There is Wi-Fi (which kept the seven of us connected) and the living room has a smart TV, allowing you to stream Netflix from your phone. Also, the washer and dryer worked great, the AC did the trick at night and the beds are VERY comfortable. More importantly, we enjoyed the privacy and security of the development, and felt safe in the surrounding area.
Port St. Charles provides chairs and umbrellas free of charge, as well as a concierge to help you plan any activities. Be sure to connect with Phil of Wreckers and Divers, (scuba diving) and to flag down Edmo on the beach for some water activities, including water-skiing.
In general, Allan was wonderful to work with and extremely responsive when booking and during our stay. Although, we did not experience any issues with the villa or Port St. Charles, here are a few things to remember:
It is very, very expensive to eat out – no matter where you go. If traveling with kids, we recommend you go grocery shopping before traveling and pack two or three small suitcases with basic staples like boxed milk, cereal, tea/coffee, drinks, snacks, lunch items like PB&J, mac & cheese, etc. We did and it allowed us to save several hundred dollars.
You do not need to rent a car if you plan on staying Port St. Charles bound as there is plenty that is accessible by bus, with food shopping and restaurants right in Speightstown (where Port St. Charles is located).
We rented a car but needed one that seated seven. These vehicles are far and few between. So, be sure to reserve a vehicle, especially a larger one, as soon as you book your trip. Try Top Car rentals; they met us at the airport and drop-off at the airport was just as convenient.
We plan on returning.
We stayed at Spinnaker in January and had an amazing time. Allan looked after us very well and the villa was very comfortable. Port St Charles is fabulous with its own quiet beach, pool & yacht club so little need to go elsewhere! The children loved every minute also - especially the daily trips on the water taxi.
We stayed at Spinnaker in Port St Charles earlier this month and it was a truly incredible experience. Having stayed in various high-end hotels in Barbados over the years I can say that this villa exceeded those earlier experiences on all levels.
I am still teased by memories of waking up (late) and gazing out through the arch-top windows upstairs, seeing the yacht masts swaying in the breeze. Confession - I like boats. The gentle clinking of the stays, and lapping of waves on hulls on the rare occasion that a boat passed through, was music to me.
There are a number of excellent restaurants nearby. We ate dinners and some lunches at The Fishpot, Lone Star and a nearby rustic fishing village for more local fare. Since there is a full kitchen in the villa, we mostly had breakfast al fresco on the beautiful verandah/dining room. One caution - the verandah can be a bit sunny in the late afternoon, but this quickly redeems itself as a vantage point for watching the lovely sunsets (around 6 pm this time of year).
We spent much of our time on the beach, and as the water is very calm on this leeward side, renting various watercraft. We enjoyed the privacy and security that the marina setting afforded, but would venture out for sightseeing occasionally. I would recommend Spinnaker without hesitation for couples (with or without children) and friend/family groups. We are already planning for next year!
