LIVING ROOM HIGHLIGHTS
The living room offers a lovely sofa which makes watching a DVD on the 26” TV great entertainment. You can also listen to the radio or play CDs. The furnishings are a flashback to the old days of Barbados Plantocracy, featuring mahogany end tables with 2 lamps and a coffee table. Admire the ocean views and lush gardens whilst sitting in your lovely wicker chair.
DINING ROOM HIGHLIGTS
Enjoy dinner with your guests at the round mahogany table which sits six. Ceiling fans compliment the living and dining rooms, along with lovely parquet floors and throw rugs. Set the mood with some candles.
At the front of the apartment and facing south is your den which features a desk in one corner, equipped with free Wi-Fi. Better still, relax in the armchair and read a book. We didn’t forget the side table to rest your cocktail on! Tiled floors and throw rugs complete the reading room which enjoys windows on both sides.
No doubt this is where you’ll spend most of your time. The chairs on the covered 180 sq. ft. patio will beckon you to sip a cocktail whilst watching and listening to the magnificent ocean and keeping cool from ocean breezes. You will probably enjoy eating out here and lounging on the comfortable chaise lounge which has a cushion and adjustable back.
ROOF TOP HIGHLIGHTS
Last but not least, should you wish to laze at home and sunbathe, you can visit the roof deck which has by far the best view in the house and is a great place to snap a few pictures to take home with you. See Africa from the roof deck! So quiet and relaxing.
Mermaid Apartments is situated on half an acre and features beautiful lush tropical gardens, a bay leaf tree, lime tree, coconut trees and many varieties of tropical palms. We have many hibiscus plants, croutons, silver dollars – to name just a few. We invite you to take a walk around the garden and enjoy it. Sample a coconut from our tree.
Located steps to the world famous Crane Beach, a 10 minute drive to Grantley Adams International Airport and a half hour drive to the capital, Bridgetown, Mermaid Apartments is close to all amenities but offers peace and quiet. Six Roads Supermarket is 5 minutes away. Barbados' oldest hotel, The Crane Hotel, and Cutters are among your neighbourhood restaurants. Try the local Oistins Fish Fry on Fridays or shop for fruits and vegetables at many nearby vendors. The ice cream van comes by at night! Many sports are available for you in Barbados.
If you are planning to rent a car, we can connect you with the local company we use. Great service and great prices.

About the owner: We grew up in Barbados and now both live in Canada. We still visit regularly.
Why the Owner Chose Belair, Barbados:
Our family, the Chandlers, were some of the first settlers in Barbados, arriving in 1637. This property came to us from out mother's side of the family. Our great-grandfather, Sir Herbert Greaves, purchased the land and it has passed down to us via his daughter and granddaughter who was our mother. We are the fourth generation to own this property.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
We just love the peace and tranquility of Mermaid Apartments. Being away from the noise and bustle makes this the perfect place to relax and unwind. Sitting on the patio reading a book and all you hear is the ocean, the birds and the wonderful Atlantic breezes. At night you will be serenaded by the local 'Whistling Frogs'. Being on the top floor of a concrete building enhances the quiet. Mermaid boasts beautiful gardens. There are windows on four sides. The views of the Atlantic Ocean are breathtaking, you can see forever. Barbados is a fun and safe island, only 21 miles long and 14 miles wide.
