Speightstown apartment description

This beachfront-apartment is situated on the exclusive West Coast of Barbados. The spacious and well fit out accommodation harmoniously blends contemporary amenities with antique mahogany furniture: An ideal place to unwind in Caribbean atmosphere, a romantic getaway for couples, but also well suited for a family holiday.
The condominium is separated from the beach by a small road with local traffic only.
Ground floor: (i) large modern Italian kitchen where 4-6 can dine; (ii) nice bedroom with two twin beds, AC and ceiling fan; (iii) small patio, ideal for breakfast.
Upper floor: (i) pleasant bedroom with queen size bed, AC+ceiling fan; (ii) modern en suite bathroom, with a second access to the (iii) living room with its comfortable seating, sofa-bed, TV, DVD, book shelves, ceiling fan. The unhurried, relaxing atmosphere continues to the (iv) covered, large balcony, fitted with a large sun shade and two sun-loungers. The balcony is ideal for dining al fresco.


From the balcony of the apartment you have a direct view of the azure Caribbean sea looking southwest and northwest. In between is a small house, that obstructs a small part of the view.

Beaches: In Speightstown you have the long Heywoods beach, part of it just over the road from the apartment; there are two palm trees and a large bush giving some shade. In just 5 minutes walking distance to the north is the long beach near the Almond Beach Resort with many trees providing shadow; south of Speightstown is the famous Mullins Beach and many others further to the south. We love the beach south of the Lone Star Hotel (excellent but expensive dining) with access from the Adventist church. The Folkestone Park in Holetown is another beach with shadow and good snorkeling in the reef.
All beaches are open to the public and access is a right for everybody. Properties which front onto a beach own the land to the high-water mark only. So you can stroll along the beach even in front of very expensive hotels. We provide for our guests a large and a small sun umbrella, two foldable beach loungers, small beach chairs, beach towels.

Golf courses: Famous golf courses are in easy driving distance (Royal Westmoreland, Sandy Lane), but there are many other ones.

Visits: see North Point (Flower Cave) and the Scotland District with Bathsheba on the East Coast, offering breathtaking views of the ocean. Drive southwards to the Barbadian heritage Codrington College. Harrison's Cave in the center of the island is an amazing gallery of stalactites and stalagmites. See Orchid World, or Wildlife Preserve, or ......
Visit also the 300-year-old Sunbury Plantation House, the only great house on Barbados where all the rooms are open for viewing. This house features mahogany antiques, old prints and a unique collection of horse-drawn carriages.
Highly interesting is a visit of the Mount Gay rum distillery in Bridgetown, where you learn how rum is made from sugar cane and you can shop the probably best rum of Barbados at a good price. Visit also the Sugar Museum, just off Highway 2A, an exhibition of how sugar was produced in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. The Portvale Sugar Factory nearby seems to be only slightly younger.....

VISIT BARBADOS DURING THE FIRST WEEK IN AUGUST, THE PEAK OF THE CROP OVER FESTIVAL.

Eating, drinking, and related enjoyments: The ''La Bouche' restaurant, and 'Fishermans Pub' are close to the apartment and offer good and fairly priced food or a pleasant drink. Very good is the 'Orange Street Grocer' close to the apartment (dinner only on Friday evening), and 'Bo´s place' as well as 'Juma´s' restaurant and next to it 'L`Attitude' beach bar and grill. Last not least, good and very affordable, the 'Island Plates' restaurant on the eastern side of the Market Place (opposite Jordan`s supermarket).
Higher priced restaurants with a very pleasant atmosphere are the Fish Pot, on the sea, 2 km north of the apartment, and the Lone Star Restaurant in direction of Holetown. Very good is also the restaurant/bar Zaccios in Holetown. BA says, its the third best beach bar in the whole world ....
In Bathsheba: Edgewater Inn, Round House, and the new Atlantis Hotel.
See the capital Bridgetown and sip a cocktail or dine at the Waterfront Cafe (yacht harbor near old bridge). After this go Shopping in the nearby area on the other side of the harbor (High Street, Broad Street and side streets).

Each Friday and Saturday night hundreds of locals and visitors go to Oistins for the Fish-Fry, an opportunity to enjoy the best local food - fried and grilled fish, fish cakes, sweet potato, and much more. Be early to find a parking place.

For farm fresh produce and more besides, try the Saturday morning Brighton Farmers Market at Brighton Plantation, tel. 429 2639, in the St George Valley. Run by owners Michael and Alison Pile on their 17th century plantation, it has become an extremely popular social outing for families. A children’s play area has been added, along with a large number of picnic tables on the lawns and a café area serving freshly brewed coffee. Stalls are normally up and ready to go by 6am (open until about 10 am) and offer a wide range of homemade produce from bread and cakes to Thai spring rolls, pickles and chutneys, meat pies, sweets and jams, plus local artwork, jewelry and handicrafts.

                              Car: Not Necessary

                              The Coral Sands apartment is situated on the exclusive West Coast of Barbados, overlooking the white, sandy beach, where you can swim, snorkel or dive. You can walk in a few minutes to historical Speightstown ('Little Bristol'), a city protected for its cultural and historical value. You find banks, shops, supermarkets, pharmacies, restaurants and bars. During the week you observe the pulsating life of a small busy Caribbean town: colorfully dressed, friendly ladies sell local fresh fruit and vegetables, fishermen sell the catch of the day or bring it to the fish market and you hear reggae music from cars.

                              The beautiful rugged East Coast, famous among surfers, with its breathtaking views, is only a few kilometers away. White Sands is close to the golf courses of Royal Westmoreland (10 minutes by car), Sandy Lane (20 minutes) and others. Pulsating touristic Holetown is only 15 min away. This gives you the best of two worlds: a quiet haven on the edge of where it is all happening.

                              Year Purchased: 2008

                              About: We are both university professors traveling a lot. We were looking for a safe harbor in a quiet area and found it in Speightstown.

                              Why Speightstown:
                              We stayed many years in Barbados and preferred always the west coast as compared to the crowded south, where the ocean waves are often high. Our property is facing the beach of the so called 'platinum coast', the area has quite some tourism but is not at all crowded by tourists. Expensive properties like Port St. Charles are in walking distance.

                              The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                              An ideal place to unwind in real Caribbean atmosphere, a romantic getaway for couples, but also well suited for a family holiday. The apartment is quite large and well equipped with modern and antique mahogany furniture.
