About the Property

1BR/1BA, Sleeps 2, A/C, WiFi, Stove, Fridge, Washer, BBQ, Private Patio, Parking

Umi is a fully furnished, stand-alone cottage located next to Jahmoon, our vacation home in Dover. This is a walled, fully enclosed property at the far end of St. Lawrence Gap. Umi is surrounded by a flower garden with fruit trees. Very secure and convenient.

Umi has ONE queen-size bed that will sleep 2 comfortably. Great for a single or a couple. There is a ceiling fan as well as A/C. Gated, spacious yard.

Free WIFI. No Cable TV but there is a DVD player and 40 inch wall mounted TV that "usually works" but no guarantees. You didn't come to Barbados to watch TV. Google Chromecast is also available so you can play content (YouTube, NetFlix, etc.) directly from your phone or tablet.

Washing machine free to use. Shower only, no tub.
Security gates on all doors/windows.

Outdoors, there is dedicated patio seating for two but if Jahmoon House is unoccupied during your stay, Umi guests are free to use the large tanning deck. There's also the laundry drying area behind Umi that has high walls for maximum sunbathing privacy.

We are located only 15 minutes from the airport and 5 minutes from the new Sandals Barbados Resort. Dover Beach is a short walk away where you can enjoy water sports or just stretch out and relax.

Enjoy Barbados. The world's best beaches. Surf, snorkel, swim with turtles. Drink rum where rum was invented. Come meet some of the world's nicest people and let loose!

Car: Not Necessary

One of the best locations on the island. Privacy of your own cottage in an enclosed (walled) yard. Short walk to beach and St. Lawrence Gap night life area. Easy access to public transportation to Bridgetown and Oistins.

Dover Beach is one of the best on the island and is just a short stroll down the street. There are several staffed information booths where you can reserve local tours and activities. Visit Oistins on Friday night for the famous "fish fry". Fun outdoor karaoke at Dover Beach on Sunday nights. Or maybe watch a cricket match at Dover Field.

On the east coast of the island, Bathsheba offers breathtaking views of the rugged Atlantic coast. Great surfing at the world famous Soup Bowl...beware, experts only!

On the west coast AKA the "Platinum Coast" has calmer Caribbean waters, pricey resorts and large estates owned by celebrities such as Simon Cowell and Oprah Winfrey. Most celebrities stay at the Sandy Lane Resort which is where Tiger Woods got married in 2004. Regular sightings of our local girl Rihanna and F1 legend Lewis Hamilton. A bit too posh for our taste so we stay on the South Coast with the common folks!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: I'm a citizen of the USA and Barbados. An interesting mix of a Barbadian father and Japanese mother. My wife is also Japanese. We have a 13 year old son and live in Santa Cruz, California My uncle/aunt live around the corner from Jahmoon and help me to manage the property. Several trustworthy friends reside locally and can be of assistance as well. I visit occasionally but not enough. We love Barbados and want to share it with nice people!

Why the Owner Chose St Lawrence Gap, Oistins, Barbados:
The location of this property is incredible. So convenient to the beaches, airport, clubs and Bridgetown. Both Sandals Barbados and Turtle Beach resorts are right down the street but not so close to be noisy. Because it's a tourist zone, the area is well lit and monitored by police. There's so much to do within walking distance! Bus stop is 1 minute away and taxi access is easy. Oistins is 10 minutes by car or bus. You may not even need to rent a car but we can help you to arrange one if you'd like. Guests have a dedicated parking spot in front of the house. Access to the property is via lockbox. There is one lockbox at the front gate and another one at the cottage entrance. Lock combinations will be provided in advance.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The entire property is walled so you have excellent privacy. Can't see your neighbors so be a tanning minimalist! I've spent a lot of time designing the flower garden and it's always in full bloom. The property is full of bougainvillea, cactus, desert rose and other colorful flora. Lots of hummingbirds and singing frogs. My neighbors have large mango trees so oftentimes, you can even watch the monkeys but please don't feed them!
