Overview

About the property

Condominium, 2 Bedrooms, 2.0 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 5)

This 2-level, 2-bedroom Caribbean condo on a Barbados beach will take your breath away. 

Sapphire #101 is housed within amenity-packed Sapphire Beach Condos immediately outside the St. Lawrence Gap, on the south shore of Barbados. Among other perks, the complex boasts 370 feet of wide, never crowded beachfront, 2 beautiful swimming pools, and meticulously landscaped tropical gardens, all steps from the sugar-white Dover Beach at the edge of the Caribbean. 

TWO LEVELS FOR BIG VIEWS AND POOL/BEACH ACCESS 

On the upper floor of #101 you’ll find magical views of marbled aqua and azure waves sliding onto the glistening sands of Dover Beach. An indoor/outdoor patio perched at the tree line presents a shaded spot for admiring the view, lounging with a book, or digging into a lovely oceanfront meal at the al fresco dining table. 

The modern kitchen, also on the top floor, is a vision in stainless steel, contemporary cabinets and granite countertops. And because it’s open to the rest of the living area, the kitchen lets the cook stay part of the conversation. 

A dining table just off the kitchen lets you entertain guests in an unbeatable setting. Procure all the ingredients you need at The Dover Market just across the street. 

The upstairs bedroom suite provides a king-sized bed and en suite bath, walk-in closets, and small balcony. 

The second suite downstairs has two twin beds that can combine into a king. It also boasts its own attached bathroom, plus a big glass wall that opens to the lush, landscaped outdoors—and just beyond that, the sea and beach. Rub the sleep from your eyes and head straight to the water! 

A queen-sized sleeper sofa rounds out the sleeping capacity at five :) 

Families love the two levels at Sapphire Beach #101, which provide plenty of space for sprawling out, finding a private spot, and spending time together. 

ABOUT DOVER BEACH & ST. LAWRENCE GAP 

Dover Beach is one of Barbados’ finest stretches of shoreline. Located on the stylish yet laid-back south coast of the island, Dover Beach provides a full range of family-friendly activities like stand-up paddling, boogie-boarding, beachcombing, sunbathing, and more. 

The surrounding area of St. Lawrence Gap (“The Gap” to locals) is quaint, authentic, and packed with shops, beach bars and tasty restaurants, both casual and upscale. 

And all of this is an easy walk from your condo—yet distanced enough that peace, quiet, and tranquility are all yours, too. 

If you do bring a car (though in this spot, one isn’t required to get around), there’s a parking spot waiting for you just outside your condo.

We want you to have the vacation of a lifetime in Barbados. We love it here, and love sharing this special place with others. To ask us questions, or to make a reservation, contact me by clicking the “Send Message” button on the right. 

Thank you for taking a look. 

See you on the beach, 

Jane

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.

Map

Car: not necessary

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.

Known as "The Jewel of the Caribbean," Barbados has more repeat visitors than any of the Caribbean islands and, according to the Caribbean Tourism Organisation (CTO), 34% of all arrivals to Barbados are repeat visitors. It's easy to see why: The climate averages ideal temperatures in the winter of 75-82 degrees Fahrenheit and in summer a warmer but still lovely 88-92. Gentle trade-winds from the sea keep us cool and we rarely turn on the air-conditioning, although it's available throughout our unit. People are friendly, the sea is crystal clear, and the rum fantastic.

A perfect holiday getaway. If you have any questions, I invite you to contact me about this or any of the vacation rental properties I offer. 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 in beautiful Barbados.

Contact me today to learn more…or to book your dates in welcoming and beautiful Barbados.

Thanks for looking,

Jane Shattuck

Celebration trip with family

  • 4 of 5

Lovely spot right on beautiful Dover Beach. We had a great time, the unit had most essentials needed to start you off until we made it to one of 2 grocery stores nearby. Jane was great to converse with via computer & Delores was very pleasant & welcoming to us while showing us the unit upon arrival. Would not hesitate recommending anyone to stay here.

Awesome Condo Great Location and Beach

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time, we were welcomed with a beautiful basket of necessities.

We used this table on the patio several times a day, it had a nice overview

of Dover Beach. This condo was excellent for 2 couples, we each had our own floor and our own bathrooms, the amenities were great with beach supplies and a few extra's.

The location was great, the beach was good, one of the better beaches that we had seen . Lots of restaurants within walking distance, we felt very safe and So welcomed by the Bajans!

Truly amazing experience

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time visiting Barbados. From making the travel arrangements with the owner, Jane, to being sent well-wishes in person by the manager, Barbara, this trip left me and my family with huge smiles! The condo looked exactly like the pictures with a fantastic layout and home furnishings that made us feel as if we were home. Very well-kept home and beautiful, secure grounds. Barbara greeted us with a beautiful welcome basket from Jane, which was a very thoughtful and personal touch.

I do recommend trying the flying fish at Daddy's Restaurant & Bar just a quick walk away. The easy access to the pools and beach made us feel relaxed and at ease. We celebrated our mother's 84th birthday and my niece's 15th birthday. Both truly enjoyed the comfort in the condo, easy access to the beach, and the fun shops at St Lawrence Gap. We had breakfast on the patio each morning enjoying the waves and gorgeous scenery.

Neighbors are friendly and helpful should you have any questions or in need of recommendations. Taxi service is just outside of Sapphire Beach if you need to hitch a ride. The grocery store wasn't far if you want to fix a meal or two. Jane was so very helpful with things to know prior to your travel and was very responsive to all of my emails.

We definitely recommend Sapphire Beach #101 if you're considering visiting Barbados!

101 Sapphire Beach

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I have been back from our Barbados vacay for a week now, and I have to say, it was another perfect trip! Please convey to the owners how grateful we are that they allowed us to re-book after all the craziness from last November. The condo was as perfect as we remembered, and every morning we sat out on the veranda and marveled at how close the ocean was to us. This condo truly has been our favorite place in all of our travels, and we have been traveling together for 7 years! Of course, we also love the Bajan people...incredibly friendly, always felt safe around them, just true gems.

We would also like to give huge kudos to two employees who work at Sapphire Beach Condos. The first is Gail, who is the security guard most days. She is such a pleasure! Gail is conversational without being intrusive, always has a smile on her face, and is truly just a genuine joy to be around. She also takes her job very seriously, and we think the company who employs her is very lucky to have her. The second person is Justin, who does the landscape maintenance on the property...that man treats SB like it is his own home and works harder than anyone I have ever seen! He is also a sweetheart, never complains, always cheerful.

I know Mel had a great time, but as I can only speak for myself, if I had a choice, I would still be in Barbados. It felt so good to be stepping back into the neighborhood, seeing friends we made last year, and of course, enjoying 101 Sapphire Beach. Everything was absolutely perfect, again, and a huge thank you to you, the owners, the staff, for making this such a relaxing vacation! I wish I slept that well in my own home!

We hope to be back again soon!

Hope and Mel
