Posh Oceanfront Barbados Two-Level Condo Apt on Gorgeous Dover Beach, Barbados

Posh Oceanfront Barbados Two-Level Condo Apt on Gorgeous Dover Beach, Barbados

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Apr 17, 2015
Fantastic sea views and easy beach access. 2 BR, 2BA, beautiful appointments

At this beautiful 2-bedroom, 2-floor condo in St. Lawrence Gap, arched columns frame dreamy Caribbean Sea views, and 1600 square feet of elegant indoor/outdoor living space create a spacious haven on the shores of Dover Beach.

The Sapphire Beach Condos complex, where the condo is located, is both within walking distance to the shops and restaurants of St. Lawrence Gap but also tucked away from the busy-ness of the Gap.

Families love this best-of-both worlds location. And the 2 swimming pools and wide, white sand beach don’t hurt, either :)

IT’S IN THE DETAILS

Inside the condo, high-end details create an exceptional place to stay—from luxury sheets and towels to rich wood furnishings and sophisticated fabrics in a palate of pale turquoise and sandy taupe.

In the striking modern kitchen outfitted with stainless steel appliances and granite countertops, you can whip up a quick meal or create a gourmet feast.

Both find a fitting setting at the open-air dining table on the patio facing the dynamic sea—the water here on the south shore of Barbados changes colors with nearly every hour of the day. The sunsets are particularly phenomenal, and you can enjoy a sunset dinner without even leaving your condo.

The two bedrooms at Sapphire Beach #117 each have their own attached baths (no fighting over the showers). Because there is one bedroom on each level—a king-sized master upstairs and two twin beds on the ground level—families with older kids find this to be a great setup for both shared family time and privacy.

The ground-level bedroom features a big patio door that opens to the pool and the beach for easy water access.

Even the bathrooms are beautiful. Because Sapphire Beach Condos are just a hair over 5-years old, everything sparkles like new.

ABOUT DOVER BEACH & ST. LAWRENCE GAP

Family-friendly Dover Beach provides endless options, from laid-back activities like sunbathing, beachcombing and long strolls along the water to active pursuits like stand-up paddling and boogie-boarding (the waves are a bit bigger and a bit more fun here on the south shore).

Meanwhile, surrounding St. Lawrence Gap (we call it, simply, “The Gap”) provides all kinds of goodies: fresh seafood, tropical cocktails, locally made souvenirs, live reggae music, and more.

Best of all, you won’t need a car, as all of this is within walking distance of your condo. The airport is just a $20 taxi ride (for 2; more for 4). Once you’ve arrived, most of the island’s hotspots and attractions are accessible via the low-cost bus service or handy taxis.

If you do decide to bring a car, however, you’ll find your very own parking spot just outside your condo on the ground floor.

Have questions about Sapphire Beach #117 or its surroundings? Don’t hesitate to contact me. I love helping people experience the very best of Barbados and the St. Lawrence Gap.

Or if you’re ready to book your trip right now, let me know when you’d like to come and we’ll put your name on the calendar.

All the best from Barbados,

Jane Shattuck

Greetings from beautiful Barbados! I am an American lucky enough to have met and fallen in love with a wonderful man from Barbados. Actually, I fell in love not just with the man but with his beautiful island home.

Fabulous vacation!

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at Sapphire Beach condos far exceeded our expectations. Everything was perfect. We were greeted at the complex upon arrival and shown to our unit. We were given a tour of the unit and shown how to use everything. We had time to ask any questions we may have had and then we were off to start our vacation. The beach in front was incredible, one of the nicest we have ever seen. The water is so clear, and the sand so soft. You can bring the two loungers from the ground floor patio onto the beach if you want, or pay to rent the ones amply available on the beach (we paid $20/day for 4 loungers and 2 umbrellas).
There are plenty of choices for restaurants and nightlife all within short walking distance of the complex. Big Daddy's grilled chicken for lunch never disappointed.
We are already planning our next stay in Barbados and will for sure be staying at this same complex and the same unit.
Jane was very easy to deal with when reserving, and extremely helpful with tips for the area. Jane leaves a brochure at the unit to give you all the information you could ever need (rental car companies, restaurants, tours, things to do, etc...) We would never hesitate to rent from Jane again.
An A+ on this entire stay. Thanks for such a memorable vacation Jane!

Owner's Response: How the news of your vacation tickled me ... thank you for writing. Makes me very happy to hear you had a wonderful holiday here in beautiful Barbados. Thanks for mentioning beach chairs ... a frequent question new guests have concerns beach loungers/umbrellas.

I hope we see you again on our beautiful beaches :)

All the best and many happy travels,

Great accomodation, great location, great service

  • 5 of 5
A wonderful condo (#117) in a fabulous location - right on the beach on at the eastern end. Don't believe what you read about 'The Gap' being noisy, it couldn't be further from the truth - at least not in late October when we visited. The condo is so well appointed and has everything you need if you want to be self-sufficient, but also ideally placed for an array of places to eat, which range from great value street food to more traditional restaurants - even they have the same laid back vibe that you get all over the island. We did though lose the shorts and t-shirts and ventured further afield for a meal at Luna Cafe. Don’t be put off by the name, as a cafe it is not. Maybe not as high end as say The Cliff, but the food was exceptional and the prices were easier on the pocket!

As far as booking and communication is concerned, Jane is a dream, giving you all the information you need and relying to any email by return.

We'll be back in flash........

Owner's Response: DeLIGHTed you had a great holiday! And thanks for mentioning Cafe Luna, one of my favorite spots on the island to dine. You're right, it's not a cafe, but a high-end, very beautiful restaurant with scrumptious food. And you're so right about the street food ... it's fantastic, isn't it, and right down the Gap from your beachfront apartment.

Happy travels and best wishes ... see you on the beach,
Jane

Such an amazing return to the lovely island of Barbados. Thank you so much Jane & Monica for all your help. The condo is amazing. Very well maintained,location is perfect, and being foot steps from Dover Beach and a few minutes from the gap was a big plus. I wouldn't stay any where else for now on when returning to Barbados.

Excellent!!!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 4 including 2 kids, 10 & 12, stayed at this great place for six nights and couldn't be happier. The condo itself is well appointed, clean, and modern. It's located on Dover Beach, and the view from the unit is fantastic. The location is great. It is at the end of St. Lawrence Gap so it's quiet, but within easy walking distance to restaurants and nightlife in the Gap. There is a grocery store for all your necessities less than a block away to the right as you exit the gate

We hung around the beach the first day, had lunch at the grill/bar next to the condo at Dover Beach Park, and had dinner nearby. On the 2nd day, we walked across the street to rent a car (Express Rent-a-Car) and explored the island. A rental GPS ($B10/day) is recommended. We drove to Browne's Beach, Crane Beach, Bathsheba, and even hung around local beaches at Brightons and Brandon. All the beaches I just mentioned are beautiful, and I would rate Dover Beach (right outsite the condo) the best. I think Crane Beach is overrated. Browne's Beach is expansive, beautiful, but didn't feel exclusive; you can see the boats and the Hilton.

We booked a 5 hour catamaran trip through Monica whom met us when we first arrived to introduce the condo basics. This 10am-3pm cruise is recommended for snorkeling to see a whole bunch of fishes and TURTLES. It made 2 stops for snorkeling, and 1 stop for a beach somewhere in the west coast. Lunch and drinks were included which we thought were very reasonable. By the way, for a family of 4 like ours, expect a minimum of U$50 per meal. Don't expect this minimum at Tapas or Pieces.

We had wonderful dinners at Tapas and Piesce. Both have water views, great services, and very good food. However; we did break down and had KFC (close to Tapas) one evening. For lunch, our most memorable was The Round House on the east coast. We sat high above the cliff looking down Bathsheba Park. This luncheon was a great change of scenery.

In conclusion, Jane gave us a great recommendation from all the lodging options that we had. She was on the spot for what we were looking for, and we appreaciated that. She keeps a list of things-to-do in the unit. We did just that, and had a wonderful vacation.

Owner's Response: I'm delighted to hear that you took a catamaran cruise to snorkel with our beautiful sea turtles. This is surely in the Top Five of Things to Do here in Barbados. It's lots of fun for the whole family. I'm impressed that you rented a car to explore and ended up having lunch at Round House on the east coast, in Bathsheba. Thank you for renting from me and for your mention of the stunning views from your apartment, #117 Sapphire Beach Condos on beautiful Dover Beach. Happy travels and I hope we see you again in Barbados. Jane Shattuck

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5
This was our 2nd trip to Barbados and our 1st stay in this wonderful condo. It has everything needed for the perfect home away from home feeling. The beds are comfortable, living room is cozy and the outside dining area is great. We made our breakfasts and lunches in the condo and enjoyed the ocean with our meals.The pool is amazing and the beach is just steps away. There are great restaurants within walking distance and the Bajan food being sold by locals on the streets is nothing short of delicious. We will be back for sure!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your lovely review of 117 Sapphire Beach Condos. I'm delighted to hear you and your family had a wonderful second vacation in Barbados at this beautiful new condo.

Dover Beach, where the condo is located, is one of the prettiest south coast beaches on the island and in the heart of the St Lawrence Gap and restaurant row, so great for young families like yours.

Happy travels and many thanks,
Jane Shattuck
