About the Property

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-4) Beachfront

Location
Number 7 is nestled on a white sand beach on the “Platinum Coast,” the calm Caribbean Sea side of Barbados. Number 7, Freshwater Bay is situated in a small complex, with beautifully maintained lush gardens. Our cheery, clean, tropical ground floor home is built for the beach: Tile floors, lots of outdoor seating, and an open kitchen plan so you don't miss out on the sea view or guests while you cook! Our upstairs unit has a large, amazing balcony with the best view in the complex.

Beach
You can stroll a good mile in either direction on the quiet beach, collecting sea shells or having a drink at Weiser's Beach Bar. Watch from afar as the cruise ships maneuver into and out of port, tour the island or stay on the beach all day long, swimming in the fabulous calm waters, hunting for Sand Dollars or watching an occasional Sea Turtle. Time slows down here.

Ambiance
After a stay at Freshwater Bay you will know you have experienced beautiful Barbados, not some all-inclusive hotel, crammed in with other tourists.

Nearby
We are in a neighborhood – actually it’s a quaint fishing village which we believe is paradise.
If you don't want to venture any further than across the road, you can visit 'Jack's Bush Bar,' listed in Zagat’s as famous for pork chops and Thursday night Karaoke.

Or, support the local fishermen next door and buy the freshest fish or lobster possible.

We are 7 minutes by car from Bridgetown, the Soccer/cricket stadium, and shops galore. 20 minutes to Holetown, Carlton's supermarket, in Black Rock, is close, and Super-Centre, in Warrens, is a short drive away. Royal Bank of Canada, the closest bank, is 'just up the road.' Also up the road is a petrol/convenience store open 24/7.

There's lots to do in Barbados - festivals, homes tours, walking tours, botanical gardens, and of course rum tours. We are on the West coast where there is a plethora of wonderful dining spots.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1985

About: Bert and I (Susan) love this place! We lead active lives in Kansas in the USA, yes Dorothy, the Land of OZ, and delight in the slower pace of Barbados. We love the great restaurants here, and as ex-restaurateurs, used to go out every evening, but now, more often that not, we buy fish from the guys next door, cook and dine on our own beach. We have made many friends among the guests and the best thing for us is that there is always someone to hang out with, or you can be totally reclusive if you wish. It's kind of like old college days, where you can go from unit to unit finding out what everyone did that day, hitch a ride to the grocery store, share a book, or get the scoop on what sights to see or where to go. The staff here is exceptional, the manager will help you have a fabulous time, tell you what to do, what not to do and arrange trips, car hire and boat rides, etc. Dog lovers that we are, we love it here so much, thru the years we have brought back three beach dogs!

Why Spring Garden, Bridgetown, Barbados:
We purchased our duplex at Freshwater Bay in 1985 after my husband fell in love with this area. We add amenities and focus on one new project each year. The bathrooms were remodeled in 2010. In 2012 we put in new stoves, refrigerators and new windows. In 2014 we replaced the doors and curtains upstairs and this year installed a beautiful new tile floor upstairs. There are new twin beds in the second bedroom upstairs and a new air conditioner in the second downstairs bedroom. The swimming on our beach is fabulous, with great sea shell specimens, interesting coral and sea glass to be found. Freshwater Bay is old Barbados – not overbuilt. The beach is quiet, not full of tourists. Walk North up the beach a bit to see where Four Seasons is building a posh resort. I can walk for a mile without seeing another person some days. Stroll South if you're more of a people watcher, and you’ll go by the Power Plant, Mt. Gay Rum, Cockspur, Weiser's Beach Bar, and the Brighten beach community, a lovely quiet, neighborhood of beach homes. We enjoy the fact that Freshwater Bay is its own little United Nations: British, Canadian, American, and local owners. As they say in Barbados, “All Visitors Welcome!”

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Our Barbados home is very comfortable, decorated in tropical colors with spacious bedrooms. We are on the quiet side of the complex. The staff make the experience fantastic, from the manager Judy Marshall, to Carl the gardener and Carlotta, the housekeeper, everyone is proud of their island and understand the true meaning of hospitality. There is true camaraderie here. Bert & I know you will enjoy this peaceful, unique spot. ALSO, if you are traveling with other families and need more room the condo above & behind is available as well.
