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.
Pool / Spa
100% refund if cancelled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Damage and incidentals
Max guests: 4 (sleeps up to 3 adults)
- Terrific location with accurate pictures provided. Location is mere steps from beach.
- Clean condo with beach towels/ linens provided
- Specifically asked about pullout couch being comfortable. It was not as the mattress was 4 inches thick and very lumpy.
Condo was as discribed. Great partial water view. Wonderful large terrace. Great beach. Many restaurants close by. Managing agent very helpful. Bed and sofas not the most comfortable but adequate. Hope to be back in future. I hope whatever they are building next door to villa will be done before too long.
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
