WSB Villas,1 Bed apartment, Stunning Sea Views & Sunsets and Private Pool
About Richard Ward
We are a professional couple, in our 40's and live in Nottingham, England.
Richard Ward purchased this Apartment in 2008
Why Richard Ward chose Saint Lawrence Gap
We have been coming to Barbados for so many years to enjoy the continuous sunshine and also to watch cricket we decided to buy. Where we have chosen is walking distance to all fabulous restaurants and bars and right on a stunning and secluded beach. Having a west facing balcony we can sit, relax and enjoy the sunsets - perfect!
What makes this Apartment unique
Waking up every morning and seeing the Caribbean sea. We have internet facilities for those that can work remotely, 2 flat screen TVs for the bedroom and lounge and huge balcony. The best of both worlds secluded and private and a walk away from all the activities when you want them.

An idyllic setting and beautiful quiet beach
We had a wonderful 8 night stay and were very impressed with the property. It was very well equipped and extremely comfortable. The check in and out processes were handled very efficiently . Location wise it is ideal for St Lawrence Gap and Oistins and very easy to get the local buses into Bridgetown. We would definitely recommend this property, you will not be disappointed.
Thank you for your review, we’re thrilled you enjoyed your stay at Villa S and look forward to welcoming you again in the future.
Best wishes Lisa and Richard
WSB Villas Vacation
It was our first time in Barbados. Family of three adults.
We stayed at Whitesands Beach Villas from June 1st to 8.
The Villa is located at Dover, close to St.Lawrence Gap.
Villa S is beautiful, bright and spacious place that can accommodate up to 4 adult people. It is situated right on the beach, has private and secluded area for lounge chairs, as well as close proximity to Dover Beach. Depends on the waves, sometimes it is not possible to use this beach area due to the high tide. To get to Dover beach you could go by the shore (many rocks and waves) or by the street. It is only 5 minutes. Dover Beach is a longer stretch of white sand, calmer water and local food restaurants. To rent two beach chairs and umbrella will cost you $20 BBD or $10 US.
At the Villa, there are plenty of chairs and towels for your use at anytime. The Villa is very well maintained, clean and has a secured entrance.
Apartment: 3rd floor, very spacious with good size bedroom, recroom and full kitchen. There is a pullout couch that can accommodate two people. The kitchen has all cooking supplies, as well as wine glasses and a mixer. The balcony has a partial view of the ocean, but mesmerizing sunset scenery. Two concerns regarding the apartment: the mattresses were uncomfortable to sleep and the shower facets in both bathrooms need to be cleaned due to the build up of calcium.
St. Lawrence Gap has variety of bars and restaurants for everyone’s taste and budget. We tried local Promto, Amigos and Infinity. They provided local atmosphere, Bajan food and life music. It is tasty and budget friendly. Sole Cafe is one of tourists’ favorites because of it is shore location, great cocktails and Mexican cuisine.
Attractions: we hired a cab for the day to see the island from coast to cast. It was absolutely incredible experience. We were able to see different towns, learn about rum history, traveled through Harrison's cave, observe Highland point, and ate at the local restaurant in Moon town. We would recommend our driver and expert tour guide Peter. His phone number is (248)-86-19.
Another must do tour is a Tiami Catamaran Cruise. Hands down, worth every penny. It is all day of sailing, snorkeling, lunch, desert, snacks and of course bottomless drinks.
Please don’t miss Friday Night Oistins Fish Market. It is an experience of live music, dancing and delicious grilled fish. You will mingle with Bajans, have laughter, conversation and street entertainment.
Third Stay in Villa S
This was our 3rd stay in this villa & we loved it as much as the 1st time.....it's superb.
White Sands is an excellent looking building that oozes charm, character & quality. Its location is really great backing onto the beach. Within easy walking distance is a
mini-mart, bars, restauraunts to suit all budgets, bus stop, car hire, ATM's....pretty much everything needed to make your stay totally enjoyable. The villa has a good lounge with the bedroom off, both air conditioned & a very good kitchen area with all the appliances & utensils needed. The balcony is good for relaxing & watching the sunset.
The villa managers Franklyn & Juliet are a pleasure to deal with both when booking & during our stay.
Will be be aiming for a 4th visit at some stage.........most definetly
This condo surpassed all of our expectations. It was beautifully decorated and had a very modern kitchen with everything you could want. There is a washing machine in the unit that came in very handy since we came from spending 10 days attending a family wedding and visiting all our relatives who moved away from the cold northeast where we still live. The view from the balcony and the bedroom is delightful! We ate our breakfasts and lunches on the balcony enjoying the view. There is a beautiful table for 6 and a couch out there. The two bathrooms came in very handy. We could each have our own bathroom and be ready at the same time, instead of taking turns. The bed is comfortable and the closet has more than enough draws and hangers to meet your needs. The air conditioning cools the rooms very quickly since we shut it off every time we left the unit. The beach is lovely with plenty of palm trees for shade. The street where it is located, St. Lawrence Gap, is filled with every kind of restaurant you could imagine. We loved the Indian restaurant, the Mexican restaurant, Harlequin, Memosa, Cocktail Kitchen, Happy Days just to name a few. They were all in walking distance. That is important since the taxis are very expensive. We went to a few restaurants on other parts of the island and learned not to do that again. We enjoyed The Coast to Coast Tour of the Island and a day of polo matches at Aches Hills. We went to the Sunday Buffet and Steel Band at Southern Palms which was worth every penny. If it rains, no worry! It lasts for about a minute then the sun returns. We woke one morning to the most beautiful rainbow that started on the water and spanned the whole sky! Everybody is so nice, especially Jeanette Jeffrey who was always available to help whenever we needed her. Thanks for making our vacation so special!
Our first stay
This was our first trip to Barbados. Owners Richard and Lisa were great to deal with during the booking process. They were prompt with their replies and answered all of our questions. The apartment was clean, comfortable and exceeded our expectations. With a very well equipped kitchen, we looked forward to cooking some of our meals. What we found was that the Massy chain of grocery stores fell short in the fresh food department and was very expensive. That being said, the apartment is well situated and within walking distance (15 minutes) of an array of low to high end restaurants, guaranteed to please all palates and budgets. Dover Beach and The St. Lawrence Gap is a great place to be. It is clean, bustling with friendly locals and tourists and we always felt safe. The building is well maintained with very friendly staff. The beach is right in front of the building and felt like a private oasis with minimal traffic from non-residents. The building is very secure and also employs a night security person. Juliet and Franklyn, the property managers, were wonderful to deal with during our stay. The only upgrade for the unit would be a safe in the apartment for passports, currency and electronic devices. Our experience will definitely lead us back to the same great accommodations and wonderful people next year.
Happy New Year to all !!!
Thank you for the fantastic review and your positive feedback. Glad you had a wonderful time and look forward to welcoming you back sometime soon.
