Freshwater Bay apartment description

#9 Freshwater sits adjacent to the parking facilities and is a 15 minute walk to Kensington Oval (5 min drive), the home of cricket in Barbados; 30 minute walk to Broad Street, Bridgetown (7 min drive); 20 minute walk to University of the West Indies Cave Hill (4-5 minute drive). It really is an excellent hideaway for the whole family and the owners often enjoy long weekends in the apartment when it is vacant. Occupants are at liberty to go to the supermarket of their choice to satisfy their individual requirements and the apartment contains everything that you would find in your own home - and if you don't find it, just ask - no reasonable request will be denied. Also, free, high speed, wireless internet available now!

Outside
Gardens and beach: there is access to lovely gardens which borders one of the famous West Coast beaches and calm waters. Late in the afternoon, you can relax in the garden and watch the sunset. There is a clear view of the Bridgetown Harbour and you may even witness the large cruise ships as they enter and exit the port. There is also access to a gazebo within the property. See above for further details.

Coast/Beach
Barbados is 166 sq miles. The Freshwater property sits on a beach, but a change of scenery is as close as a 5 minute walk, or a 35 minute drive over to the other side of the island.

Special interest holidays
From high performance World Rally Cars to a tram ride through the extensive Harrison's Cave, to name two out of hundreds of activities on the island, there is truly never a dull moment in Barbados... unless you choose to relax and enjoy the Caribbean.

Travel
If you are arriving by plane, Grantley Adams International Airport will be your first experience and truly, as a person that travels regularly as part of my job, in my opinion it is one of the best run in the world. A 30 minute drive will have you at Freshwater. Arriving by cruise ship, you will enter the Bridgetown Harbour where you can see the property as you dock. A taxi ride will have you on our beach within 5 minutes.

              • It's useful to know that we the owners often visit Freshwater with our two kids aged 7 and 4. The gardens contain a gazebo right upwind to a built-in barbecue and we enjoy sunset dining with our BBQ supplies, plates, glasses etc. Most of the year (90%) the sea is calm, crystal clear and extremely relaxing. The one drawdown of the property is the vehicle entrance which passes by a power plant (there is truth in advertising here) so your first impression is quite 'industrial'. The property itself, however, is a real oasis as described by many returning visitors. Adjacent to the property, on Thursday nights, there is Karaoke, which is quite loud. The best way to beat them - is to join them and the locals are all very friendly and welcome visitors with our renowned hospitality....moreless

                  Car: Recommended

                  A short 10 minute drive north and you'll come across the world famous Sandy Lane Golf Club. On any given day you can watch celebrities frolic on the beach, or pick up a round of Golf - the greens are open to everyone - for a fee of course. Another 5 minute drive further north and a bit off the coast you will come across the Royal Westmoreland. Both of these courses have world renowned quality, and with your stay at Freshwater, you don't have to worry about a world renowned accommodation bill.

                  If you're a car racing fanatic, a bit further afield, you can find the brand new Bushy Park Circuit in St. Philip which Hosted the world Renowned Top Gear Festival and several stages of Rally Barbados in May 2014 with the Race Of Champions scheduled for December 13 & 14 2014!! An island paradise with so much to offer indeed!!

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2006

                  About the owner: My name is Chris Maloney and my family (wife and 2 kids aged 10 & 7) love spending long weekends at this apartment. It's literally 65 steps to the white sandy beach and the beach runs south for about 1 1/2 miles and North about another mile. We really do have a great time in the water during the day, then watching the sunset over a rum or 8, and then, sometimes we strike up the BBQ and have a great meal outside under the gazebo. I would love for you to experience my island home!

                  Why the Owner Chose Freshwater Bay:
                  It is very difficult to find reasonably priced property on the west coast of Barbados - particularly directly on the beach!! This is a cozy 2 bedroom apartment that we could manage and I pass my pricing onto my guests. It really is an affordable place to stay and you enjoy the beach, gardens and the priceless sunsets every day.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                  One of the greatest benefits is that, after a morning spent in the sea, the kids are exhausted and normally drift off to sleep in the early afternoon, leaving my wife and I with much needed quality time. Outside of that, I find the gardens and loungers very relaxing.
