Apartment | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 2
This privately owned spacious one bedroom apartment is recommended for a romantic getaway and sightseeing. It's near the ocean and close to the village. Set in 5 acres of beautiful tropical gardens and there is a 25m swimming pool with sun loungers, umbrellas and a poolside bar and restaurant.
The accommodation is spacious (approx 750 sq.ft.), comfortably furnished and comprises a lounge with dining area and separate fully equipped kitchen. Personally furnished for comfort. It has air conditioning, but we have found the position on the top floor and the clever design of the building means that at night a flow of cool air is available without mechanical assistance.
Breakfasts on the balcony are a wonderful start to the day and watching the sun go down over the sea is a memorable event.
The swimming pool is ideal, the convenience of a small bar/restaurant alongside is a bonus. Shops are within a few minutes walk and access to fine stretches of beach will add just two more minutes.

The St James Parish region
Barbados is the most popular of the Caribbean Islands, and enjoys a year round climate, with daytime temperatures of 27°C to 31°C. Night temperatures hardly vary, with the lowest winter temperatures of 23°C to 25°C.
This small island is packed like a jewel box; take a trip to the East Coast for fabulous rugged scenery on the Atlantic Ocean, visit Harrison's Cave or Sugar Plantation Great Houses. Explore the Flower Forest and Orchid World. There is always something to do in Barbados, which enables you to enjoy the type of holiday to suit your individual taste.
Daytime pursuits can be a leisurely stroll along the fabulous white sand beaches or, for the more energetic, tennis, golf, horse riding and all water sports (scuba diving in the Caribbean is like a huge tropical fish tank), water skiing, para-sailing, deep sea fishing for barracuda, kingfish or the famous Barbadian Flying Fish.
Our West Coast waters are clean, clear and warm - ideal for swimming, snorkeling, scuba diving, and wind surfing. For those less willing to try diving, you can still discover the amazing underwater experience by taking a trip with Atlantis Submarines - http://www.atlantisadventures.com/caribbean.cfm. Or you may just prefer to relax on the beach, enjoying the sun, sand and sights!
Situated in the unique and prestigious Parish of St James on the South West Coast of Barbados,
the local area boasts fabulous beaches washed by the Caribbean Sea and frequented by the rich and famous (there are no private beaches on Barbados), yet these are only five minutes walk from our apartment.
