About the Property

Elegant Open Concept Apt With Ocean View, 3 Br, 3 Ba - Sleeps 6-8

The minute you walk into this condo, you will be drawn to the large balcony where you can admire the magnificent shades of blue ocean, feel the sea breeze and listen to the waves crashing on the beautiful white sand, just steps away. That is in essence the beauty of our vacation home and we feel that you deserve the best as vacation is where you build the best memories. We are offering you a luxury home designed with elegance and comfort in mind.

It is the perfect place for a family or small group of friends wanting to share a home vacation in a beautiful location. Our condo is located on the third floor and features an open plan living, dining, kitchen area, and leads to the balcony which overlooks the pools, beach and ocean beyond. The master bedroom has a king bed and an ensuite bathroom. It has direct access to the balcony, and is angled in such a way that you can lay on your bed and look straight out at the ocean view! The 2nd bedroom (red room) has a king bed and ensuite bathroom. The 3rd bedroom has twin beds that can be brought together to form a comfortable king size bed and is adjacent to the hallway bathroom. You have access to an elevator.

Sapphire beach properties have over 370 feet of pristine beach front which forms part of the sought after Dover Beach, renowned for its white sand and crystal clear turquoise waters. Located at the end of the St Lawrence Gap, you can easily walk to a great variety of restaurants, from Indian food, Chinese, Italian or Bajan. A couple of bars are within waling distance but far enough away so you won’t be bothered by them. Small grocery stores, banks, car rental, sports equipment rental and shopping is all within walking distance so many vacationers feel that they don’t need to rent a vehicle.

If you choose to discover the island and mingle with the locals there is a cheap and easy bus system that will allow you to learn more about this unique Caribbean island. You can also opt to book different tours and we can help you with that. Renting a car is also an option, but remember to take into account that Barbados used to be a British colony and they drive on the left. Taxis are also a good option and are cheap and plentiful.

With your safety being a priority, our property has 24hr security guards, monitored cameras throughout the site, monitored electric gate entrance, and an on-site private parking.

If you would like additional services such as babysitting, on-site massages, chef or grocery pre-stocking... let us know so that we can help you with your plans. Those services are offered at an extra cost.

Sapphire Beach is a short 15 minute drive from Grantley Adams International Airport (airport code BGI) while Bridgetown is a similar short drive .

Feel free to ask us questions, we will be happy to help you create an amazing vacation!

Il me fera plaisir de repondre à toutes vos questions en français afin de rendre vos vacances les plus agréables possible. Si vous désirez me parler, allez-y, appellez-moi!

Car: Not Necessary

Our Sapphire Beach Condo sits on Dover Beach which is one of the longer and wider white sand beaches found on the island and has mostly calm waters and is safe for swimming year-round. For the safety of locals and visitors alike there is a daily lifeguard presence as can be identified by the yellow lifeguard hut found there and on many of the other popular swimming beaches. Because of its beauty and popularity, Dover Beach hosts a wide range of both water sport and other beach rental service providers such as SunFish and catamaran sailing, boogie board, snorkel, beach lounges and umbrella rentals to name a few. Just opposite the beach is a playing field where you can enjoy an occasional game of cricket, soccer or basketball.

The property is located a short 15-minute drive from the airport in the south east and also from the main city Bridgetown (good choice for duty free shopping) in the south west. Barbados is a mostly flat coral island of only 21 by 14 miles (166 square miles) so getting anywhere is a short drive by comparison to most other travel destinations. As a mature holiday destination, the islands infrastructure such as road and road signage are also well developed.

Barbados is known for being safe and for the friendliness of its people so getting around and seeing the sights is recommended and locals will be happy to offer directions should you lose your way. Aside from renting a car, visitors can utilize the available public transportation of Government operated Mercedes coaches or the smaller privately owned buses and vans which can take you anywhere for no more than US$1.00 per trip. Bus stops are located along almost every road and in the case of Sapphire Beach are no more than a five minute walk away.

As we are very near the St-Lawrence Gap, there are a wide selection of restaurants within easy walking distance as well as bars, nightclubs and gift shops. Small grocery stores and an ATM are within walking distance as well. Having a car is not necessary but if you want to rent one, a parking spot is available for you in the complex (within the secure area).

Oistins, an outdoors location just a 10 minute drive away, is famous for fresh local seafood (Fish Fry) prepared as you watch. With great bars, music and gift shopping it is popular with locals and visitors alike. North, along the coast, you will find Speightstown and Holetown which boast a long and intriguing history. The scenery around the Crane area is spectacular. The island offers many activities from submarine and coastal catamaran trips to cave and historic plantation tours. There is also a wildlife reserve and nature tours such as the Welchman Hall Gully. For indoor shopping, movies and a great food court, there is the Sheraton Mall (2.6 km from Sapphire). Feel free to ask us for recommendations based on your preferences such as coach tours or more active ones such as the Zip Line adventures where you glide safely in a harness over one of the most scenic natural gullies on the island.

The fringes and reefs found off Barbados blossom with healthy sponges, coral and plant life. There are several types of reefs, each one unique in its own special way.

There is No lack of things to do but don't forget above all:

It's Limin'Time!

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: My husband and I share a passion for travelling and photography and love to meet new people and share their culture. As we are approaching retirement, we realized one of our dreams when we bought this beautiful home in Barbados where we can enjoy the sea breeze, daily swims in the ocean and embrace a different culture. As we are planning to discover more of this beautiful world we will share our place in paradise with you when we are not using it and hope you will like it as much as we do. Pour les gens qui parlent français, il me fera plaisir de communiquer avec vous et répondre à toutes vos questions en français.

Why the Owner Chose Saint Lawrence Gap, Oistins, Barbados:
The year round good temperature, safety, hospitality of the Bajans and modern conditions of Barbados are some of the reasons we chose this small gem of the Caribbean. Sapphire Beach condos are the newest and most sought after vacation homes in Barbados. Located on a magnificent beach with easy access to everything, this well designed luxurious condo has it all.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
We can invite friends and family and feel very safe and welcomed. Being in the south of Barbados, we can easily discover new beaches and mingle with the Bajans and feel like we're at home!
