Overview

About the property

Condominium, 1 Bedroom, 2.0 Bathrooms, Sleeps 2

Pull open the curtains on both sides of this 2-bedroom, 2-bath corner South Coast condo, and uncover a dreamlike Caribbean panorama. From this 270-degree vantage point at Deja Blue, you’ll feel like you’re captaining the prow of a giant ship.

My husband and I (I'm American; he's Barbadian) are so taken with the paradise that is Barbados that we purchased two beautiful seaside condos on Barbados' south coast. We live in one and rent out the other two. Both are in St Lawrence Beach Condos in St Lawrence Gap, Barbados. 

We offer our rental at exceptional value; it's beautifully appointed and well-equipped for families, couples, and singles who wish to visit and enjoy a holiday that's action-packed or quiet and serene .... in either case the warmth of the sun and beauty of the sea will surely enhance your vacation. 

And here on Barbados’ south coast, in St. Lawrence Gap, the Atlantic merges with the Caribbean, creating unique, white-capped turquoise waves. Few places in the world are quite like this—and at Deja Blue, you get a front-row seat for all the natural drama.

Even better, you’ll be smack in the center of St. Lawrence Gap’s man-made perks as well—ranging from delicious local restaurants to authentic shops. All within walking distance of your condo! No rental car required. Simply take a $20 taxi (with tip) from the airport to your condo, then walk everywhere or catch the free shuttle for the rest of your trip.

FEELS LIKE HOME – BECAUSE IT IS!

Deja Blue is kept to an incredibly high standard—spotless and brimming with meaningful décor and original art. “Even the windows sparkle,” said one of Deja Blue’s happy guests (check out our 100% 5-star reviews below!).

While you’re here, we highly recommend staying in for at least one seaside meal on Deja Blue’s oceanfront balcony. Get some fresh mahi mahi from the nearby grocer, prepare it in the gourmet kitchen (we have all the cooking utensils you could need), uncork a bottle of wine, and let the rolling waves provide a romantic soundtrack. Perfection!

If you’re not up for cooking, check out the vendors who roll up at about 6 o’clock every evening and fill the air with the mouth-watering scent of Barbadian street food. The macaroni pie is to die for! Or try the Friday night fish fry at Oistins—an institution for locals and tourists alike.

We love sharing this gem of St. Lawrence Gap with our guests. And we hear it all the time: nothing beats sinking into the top-of-the-line king-sized bed in the master bedroom. A heavenly cross-breeze, and the sound of the rolling ocean, floating through the open windows on warm nights will lull you into a beyond-deep sleep.

“WHEN I GET TO HEAVEN, I HOPE IT LOOKS LIKE THIS!”

The quote above is from another happy guest. And we think you’ll find your heaven here, too! We pride ourselves on doing whatever we can to make your stay over-the-top amazing.

If Deja Blue is unavailable on the dates you’d like to visit Barbados, please let me know and I can introduce you to some equally stunning oceanfront properties in St. Lawrence Gap.

Contact us today to start planning for the Barbadian vacation of a lifetime!

Jane Shattuck & Greg Hoyos, owners

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.

Why Barbados Beach Vacation Rentals chose Saint Lawrence Gap

Two reasons: 1) Location in the St Lawrence Gap on the south coast, amidst fabulous sugar-white beaches and fantastic restaurants and 2) Caribbean Sea views that are guaranteed to knock your socks off. They still do mine, after years of living here.

What makes this condo unique

-Don't need a car in order to have a fantastic stay.

-Fish is just-caught fresh.

-People of Barbados are so, so warm and friendly.

-The water is warm and as clear as a bath.

-The sand is sugar-white.

-The temperature ranges between an ideal 75 and 88 degrees.

-The views from the apartment are some of the finest in all of the Caribbean.

-It's not terribly humid in Barbados; it's warm, with a gentle breeze off the sea.

-The island is small and safe and fun to explore.

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

Exquisite apt, amazing views, perfect week

  • 5 of 5

I needed to escape the bitter cold of Washington last month and decided to visit Barbados where I have friends. Got lucky with a last minute booking as there had been a cancellation. It was perfect in every detail. This apt is decorated so beautifully, and is right on the beach. Large rooms (2 bedrooms and 2 baths) with kitchen, living room, dining area, and balcony. Free wireless too.

The neighborhood is lively with restaurants and music close by. The condos also have a pool, and there is a washer/dryer in the apt. I can't say enough great things, actually. I only wish I could have stayed longer. And my favorite restaurant, Josef's, is just a few steps away.

The owner obviously cares about the property as everything is first-class. She also has thought of every detail so you won't need to. It was a delightful experience all around. Highly recommend.

Amazing Views!

  • 5 of 5

This place felt like paradise. The view from the unit is unbelievable. Very comfortable unit with many amenities. Very close to many restaurant choices for dining.

The building and pool were very clean and and well kept. Jane (the unit owner) thought of everything including an extensive list of useful information. We referenced this often.

One recommendation would be to provide plastic wine glasses. We often enjoyed our wine on the patio and I can be clumsy sometimes, so I worried about breaking glass on the lovely patio. Good news - It didn't happen : -)

Overall, we loved the place and if we return to Barbados, we would definitely return to Deja Blue!

Absolutely Awesome

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this condo. The view is the best I have ever seen. Stunning! Five min walk to Dover Beach where I swam with several sea turtles. Safe area, clean condo & friendly management. So glad we chose this place instead of a hotel. I highly recommend this condo & cannot wait to go back!

St Lawrence Beach condos, " Deja Blue" Barbados

  • 5 of 5

The property was beautiful, we had everything we needed there. It is ideally located with a small beach, pool area, and right in the middle of the nightlife. Even though Hurricane Matthew, tried to upset our stay, we had a wonderful 2 weeks there, my sister Frances and myself. Gerry the doorman, was a lovely man, who looked after us, as was Monica, and Ricardo, thank you all. Jane the owner is a pleasure to be around, didn't bother us, but was there if we needed her, and was a support for us when the storm hit. Jane you have a lovely condo, and Im sure we'll be back, so anyone thinking of staying on the beautiful Island of Barbados, please get in touch with Jane, you will not regret it. Kathryn Wilkins

Owner's Response: Frances and Kathryn, you two sisters were such a pleasure to have on our beautiful island; you brought so much lively, upbeat joy to Barbados. Thank you for choosing my "Deja Blue" for your vacation. The storm was short, thank goodness, and you two weathered it with good humor. No one wants to spend part of their vacation indoors but you made the most of it and, gosh, didn't we share a few laughs over it. I thank you for commending the amazing staff at the St Lawrence Beach Condos; I love the folks I get to work with; the capable and kind staff enhance the stay of guests at our pretty, boutique property on the sea. Wishing you many happy travels ... see you on the beach! Jane Shattuck

Lovely honeymoon vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The condos were a fantastic place to stay for our honeymoon vacation! My parents had stayed there two years prior with some friends in February, and loved it! We actually randomly picked the same condos, then discovered it was where they stayed! My parents told us numerous great things about the condos, pool area, Jetty, and area.. They were right. We had windows that opened up on a corner wall in our bedroom, so we could see the ocean beautifully. Staff were friendly, Jane's info was helpful, area was clean, well maintained, use of cell phone was handy.

The condo was set up with thought from the ample wardrobe space, kitchen utensils, nice towels, and local art on the walls. Walking into the condos after a day of site seeing was like walking into your own little bit of paradise! We would highly recommend!

Owner's Response: Thank you for choosing my husband's and my seaside vacation rental apartment Deja Blue for your honeymoon ~ and many congratulations on your life together. It was a pleasure to have you in our place in Barbados and I'm glad you enjoyed it as much as your folks did two years ago ... what a fun coincidence and one that gives you all lots of share with one another. Maybe you'll all return to Barbados together at some point for a multiple-generation family trip :) All best regards to you and many thanks, Jane Shattuck

Perfect spot in Barbados

  • 5 of 5

First of all dealing with the owner of the condo was absolute pleasure. Her responses were very prompt and detailed. The welcome package that she send out before our trip was so informative and made everything super easy. There was a printed copy in the condo as well. The condo was in a perfect location with restaurants and fantastic beaches all around. The transportation from that point was super easy and super cheap. The condo was set up very well. It was very clean and well furnished. The view from the door/leaving room and from the main bedroom took our breath away. The patio was overlooking the ocean and a perfect spot for morning meals or afternoon drink and snack. A small convenience/grocery store was just steps away from the condo.

The driver that was recommended by the owner in her welcome to Barbados package was fantastic. Our stay was magical. The building was very secure with the day and night security personal. Every one that is connected to the condo (whether a night security guy, cleaning crew or the condo manager) were super friendly, and very helpful. This was our first time experience with renting a condo instead staying in the resort, and we are converts. If every experience with home away is like this one, yes, no more resorts for us. I highly recommend this condo. We had a fantastic time.
