Property description

Swanage is a beautifully restored traditional Barbadian Chattel house. It is an enchanting and tastefully decorated and furnished home - you can’t help but take back special memories from your stay!

The upper apartment is a two bedroom ensuite, with an open style living area complete with dining out onto the wonderful and picturesque verandah that overlooks the Caribbean ocean. The lower unit offers one huge bedroom ensuite, with open style living area and dining out to a verandah that is exactly 4 feet above the beach. The balconies from both the upper and lower apartments both overhang the beach itself! They can be rented separately or as a complete unit if you so desire.

It’s not possible to get any closer to gorgeous white sand beach or the ocean on the island. Relax on the patio, watch the spectacular sunsets, sip a drink and look down at the ocean literally at your feet.

There’s always the constant sound of the sea, an unforgettable view, and the gentle rustle of trade winds in the Coconut trees. You can sit on the long stretch of beach, swim and snorkel in the protected lagoon (perfect for kids) or the more adventurous can surf or snorkel the barrier reef just beyond.

Step out onto the beach. Turn left and you can walk on the boardwalk to the spectacular Rockley beach, aka Accra beach, with its famous ultra fine white sand where locals and tourists mix. Turn right and stroll along the peaceful coast towards the famous Hilton beach. Back at Swanage, you will take with you a lasting memory of the sun sinking into the horizon, and as you sit cocktail in hand, you may even see the elusive green flash.

For foodies:
There are three great dining choices on the boardwalk, Blakey’s, Tapas, and Naru with a half dozen others within walking distance. Also be sure to catch the Saturday farmer’s market opposite Blakey’s from 9AM to 1PM for your typical local Barbadian produce and crafts.

For shoppers:
It’s a short walk to Lanterns mall, a great stop for groceries and general supplies, a pharmacy, health food store, Haagen Das ice cream, and tasty local and foreign food alternatives for those looking for a quick meal.

For duty free shoppers:
There are duty free shops in Worthing, five minutes by local bus or take a ten minute ride to Bridgetown. On Broad Street you will find fine jewelry shops, Cave Shepherd, a large department store, and other shops. For a great local shopping experience visit bustling Swan Street.

For history buffs:
There’s the Hastings Historic District and storied Garrison area of Barbados. It is the location of the Old Colonial Officers Quarters and Army Hospital. The Savannah comprises the main military guard buildings, with beautiful Victorian architecture complete with a large collection of old cannons, the Barbados Turf Club (Horse Racing), the historical museum, and a vast open sports area for rugby, soccer, cricket, all surrounded by walking and running tracks.

Car: Not Necessary

Hastings is approximately two miles from the capital city of Barbados - Bridgetown along highway 7. It is home to the Historic Garrison area and of the Barbados Turf clubs horse racing track.

Popular surfing spots nearby include Brandons beach and Hilton Beach.

The house opens to the beach and is steps away from the popular south coast boardwalk that runs from Hastings to Rockley. Along the way you can find many fine restaurants and bars.

Golf: Barbados is indeed a golfers paradise with several existing golf courses and several more being developed. There is something for everyone as Barbados golf courses appeal to the recreational golfer and the more serious!

Our reputation as a golfing destination has been steadily growing and was further enhanced with the hosting of the 2006 World Golf Championships World Cup at one of the Sandy Lane courses. The Royal Westmoreland course is a regular host of a PGA European Tour Seniors tournament.

The nearest Golf course is Rockley Golf & Country Club which is approximately 3 km away. The par 70, 5610 yd course tests all abilities of golfers, the course can be rewarding for the big hitter but cruel on the wayward aggressive shot.
