About Barbados Beach Vacation Rentals
Greetings from beautiful Barbados! I am an American lucky enough to have met and fallen in love with a wonderful man from Barbados. Actually, I fell in love not just with the man but with his beautiful island home.

Sapphire Condo 101 -- we'd surely go back.....
Another couple joined my wife, adult daughter and myself for a week at Sapphire Condos 101. Everything about our stay was excellent The unit was very nicely appointed, and we liked very much that it was on the extreme north side, so we have a broader view from our spacious balcony, where we spent a lot of our time. We had a great view up Dover Beach and were right above " Johnny Cool's" bar and restaurant. While it was more active than some units would have been, for our taste , we enjoyed the liveliness. This was a two-story unit, with one bedroom, bath and patio on the ground level where we entered, and the rest upstairs. There was a parking place right outside our door, which not having a car, we did not use, but it made going in and out of the condo even that much easier. To access the pool and beach, we simply walked around the corner and down a short sidewalk. We liked the security features of locked gates at the street and the beach, even though we felt safe everywhere we went. This is on the south edge of The St. Lawrence Gap, so it is in very convenient walking distance from about everything you would want. We found the property managers to be very responsive to our needs. The realtor representing the owners was extremely helpful in planning our trip, including sending us a 14-page self-made guide with about every topics, and contact information. We used a number of her recommendations, and were pleased with all. When we return to Barbados, we would definitely return to Sapphire Condos 101.
It was a pleasure hosting your family in #101 Sapphire Beach Condos. Thanks for choosing this pretty property for your stay. I'm happy to hear you had a great holiday :)
Happy travels and we hope to see you again,
Just like the pictures! A beautiful place to stay in a beautiful location!
The Jr. Penthouse is beautiful! There is ample living space indoors and outside. The finishes are very nice. The outdoor patio is wonderful and has a covered portion so you can get a little relief from the sun and even remain outdoors when the island showers pass by. The views are amazing! The condo is in a very convenient location. There is no need to rent a car here, if you don't want to. However, there is free parking if you do choose to get a car. One note: if you're traveling as a family, the bedroom that faces the Gap (versus the beach) is not very large and is a better option for the kids. This should not be a deal breaker if you are traveling with all adults, though. You should be spending most of your time in the Jr. Penthouse living space, on the large patio or out and about in beautiful Barbados! Also, the team that works at the condos to handle your reservations (Jane) and take care of you during your stay (Ricardo) are top notch! You will be pleased if you pick this condo for your stay!
I'm delighted you had a wonderful visit in Barbados! Thanks for your kind review. You are so so right about Ricardo; thanks for mentioning this wonderful staff member. Ric does everything in his power to help make every guest's stay splendid ~ and he can fix anything!!
I thank you for writing and hope we see you again in beautiful Barbados!
Warm regards from paradise,
LOVED LOVED LOVED IT!!!!
This condo was absolutely PERFECT in every way!! We went with friends to celebrate my 40th and even after driving around the entire island of Barbados we still felt like this location was the BEST for entertainment, beaches, restaurants, etc... The condo is massive and the balcony is huge which we loved!! The view of the water from the bedrooms and balcony you can't beat! This was by far the nicest place we have ever stayed on any vacation and is worth every penny. The owner Jane is a sweetheart and helped with all of our questions regarding the condo, island, etc... We can't wait to go back!! :)
If any birthday warrants a celebration it's one's 40th! I'm delighted Barbados could be a part of your entry into a new decade of life :) I can see that you made the most of your time on our beautiful island.
Thank you for your most lovely review. And I hope we see you in Barbados again soon!
Warm regards from paradise,
I traveled to Barbados with a group. Party of 5 and we fit so comfortably in this unit. I thought the views were spectacular, the balcony was a major highlight for us and everything was functional. The only thing preventing me from giving this a 5 star review was the Wi-Fi. It was just rough! You could barely get connected and we had to stand in one place to get the best service. We all ended up calling our phone providers and purchasing an international plan. I needed to work on this vacation so it was important for me to be "connected". Other than that, I thought Ricardo and Jane were welcoming and pleasant. I loved being next to the night life and in walking distance to dover beach.
As for Barbados (I was not crazy about this island) I thought the US dollar didn't go far and most meals cost us around $40-50 bucks when dining out. I wouldn't go back, and if this condo was placed on a different island I would definitely stay in it again.
I know you had trouble with the wifi! I'm so sorry about it not being up to snuff .. I work when I'm traveling and having reliable internet is vital. As you know, during your stay I had the connection checked by the IT company; they claimed they did what was needed. But I can see that whatever it was they did it wasn't enough. I do apologize for that.
You're right about the costs, too. Almost every item we have on this island is imported, which contributes to the high cost of living in paradise. So Barbados is not a budget island, no.
I am very happy to hear that you loved your apartment. I hope that when you reflect on your time here you remember the views, the beach, the gorgeous climate, and amazing location of your home-away-from-home! Thanks for choosing the Jr Penthouse in the St Lawrence Beach Condominiums for your accommodation while here.
Wishing you many happy travels,
xo Jane Shattuck
BARBADOS, THE SOUTH COAST, & THE ST. LAWRENCE GAP
The south coast of Barbados is known for its beautiful white beaches, the famous Oistins Fish Fry on Friday nights, and its friendly vibe where you'll find locals (called Bajans) and tourists alike.
The St. Lawrence Gap ("gap" means "street") is the area on the south coast that is a favorite destination for both locals and tourists. Lots of quaint small businesses, delicious restaurants, colorful shops, and more—all within walking distance of your condo. A car is not necessary; a taxi to and from the airport is likely all you’ll need.
We are experts on all things Barbados, so feel free to ask about the must-see places and activities to explore during your trip. I know your holiday time is limited—I will do everything I can to help you make the most of your stay on the Caribbean island that boasts the most repeat visitors, the island known as "The Jewel of the Caribbean."
