Crop Over: Crop Over, a five-week summer festival, is Barbados' most popular and colourful festival. It's origins can be traced back to the 1780's, a time when Barbados was the world's largest producer of sugar. At the end of the sugar season, there was always a huge celebration to mark the culmination of another successful sugar cane harvest - the Crop Over celebration.

As the sugar industry in Barbados declined, so too did the Crop Over festival and in the 1940's the festival was terminated completely. However, the festival was revived in 1974 and other elements of Barbadian culture were infused to make the extravaganza that exists today ..... an event that attracts thousands of people from across the globe.

Jazz Festival: The Premiere Jazz Festival of The Caribbean

The Barbados Jazz Festival, which celebrates the best in international and local jazz talent, has become a major annual Caribbean event.

The venues for the festival also reflect the diverse nature of the festival. The modern Sir Garfield Sobers gymnasium suits a large crowd. The open air Farley Hill National Park is ideal for a day of picnicking and jazz. The lovely Sunbury Plantation House is over 300 years old and steeped in history.

Thoroughbred Horse Racing: The racetrack in Barbados is at the Garrison Savannah which is less than two miles outside the capital Bridgetown. It has been the home of horse racing since the colonial days of 1845. The officers of the British Regiment who were stationed in Barbados, used what was then the parade ground to match their horses in races and the wealthy merchants and planters later joined them.

The Barbados Turf Club, which regulates and promotes horse racing in Barbados, was established in 1905 and organizes three (3) seasons of racing per year. These meetings run from January to April; May to August and from October to December.

The track is a 6 furlongs oval grass strip and races are run at distances of 5 furlongs (1000 meters); 5½ furlongs (1100 meters); 7.8 furlongs (1570 meters); 9 furlongs (1800 meters) and 10 furlongs (2000 meters), with the horses running in a clockwise (right handed) direction.

MOTHER/DAUGHTER TRIP

  • 5 of 5
Dear Cathrin,

My daughter and I had a wonderful time in your 'girlie' apartment. Everything is so neat and in it's proper place. I did not get a chance to take a dip in the pool, but my daughter did and enjoyed the serenity.

Luana & Brian were great hosts checking us in and making sure that we were comfortable.

I would certainly recommend this property to friends and hopefully will be back soon.

IN LOVE WITH BARBADOS

  • 5 of 5
My partner and me spent a wonderful time at Springcourt 6a.

The apartment was above expectations: it was very clean, comfortable and decorated with taste. The kitchen was equipped with everything you need if you want to cook your own meals. The owner also provides a washing machine, plenty of towels, beach towels, a hairdryer, air conditioning and even ceiling fans. We really appreciated the local maps, activity guides and notes with important telephone numbers. The lovely decoration gave us the feeling of being welcome. We already travelled a lot but no hotel room could compete with Sprincourt 6a. The garden and the pool are well-kept and we could enjoy our breakfast every morning on the quiet balcony.

We recommend renting a car, since the apartment is a bit far away from beaches, restaurants, supermarkets etc. but therefore, it is located in a quiet, save and friendly neighbourhood. If you rent a car, it only takes a few minutes to go to the next beach. If not, there is a bus stop only 10 minutes walking distance away from the apartment.

Each day, we visited another beach or attraction. One of the most impressive attraction was the Animal Flower Cave...we recommend visiting it early in the morning if you want to be the only tourist in the cave. If you plan do a sailing trip, you should definitely book a tour with Cool Runnings. The crew was friendly, funny and served delicious food. We also had the chance to snorkel with curious sea turtles and colourful fishes.

We are a bit sad that we could only stay 2 weeks on Barbados...even though it is a small island, you won't be bored if you stay there for 3 weeks.

We can recommend Springcourt 6a with clear conscience to anyone. Thank you Cathrin for the lovely, unforgettable stay. We fell in love with Barbados and hope, to come back again.

THE BEST VACATION EVER!

  • 5 of 5
The accommodations were absolutely superb! We found the Spring Court community to be very warm and welcoming. Cathrin's place was well appointed and as advertised - neat, clean, a gourmet kitchen and quiet. Rebecca and I had a very restful stay and the locale is perfect - close to everything and within walking distance to the beach and restaurants. If there was an issue - Cathrin made sure that it was taken cared of. We saw the Green Monkey's and Rebecca swam with the turtles via Cool Runnings Catamaran Cruise which we thoroughly enjoyed and also recommend. I would highly recommend Cathrin's place. We truly felt as if this was our home away from home! Thank you Cathrin for a wonderful experience in Barbados!

Owner's Response: Having Steven and Rebecca stay at my island home was a delight. Because we connected so much via FB, it almost felt like being there with them. I do hope that we can vacation sometime as a group. November is the garden party month at Springcourt. Hope to meet up!

A GREAT PLACE TO VACATION AND FEEL AT HOME!

  • 5 of 5
This apartment is very clean, comfortable and quiet with interior decor that has style and promotes relaxation. The kitchen is equipped with everything needed to make gourmet meals. The property has lovely gardens, a secluded swimming pool and adequate parking located in a quiet and safe neighborhood just a short car ride from the public beach. Shopping for everything one could possibly need is accessible. The board walk at Hastings Rock is spectacular. The fresh juice bar at Art Splash across the street from the board walk is delicious and is the location of a farmer's market on Saturday mornings with local vegetables and even fresh French croissants! The owner and her agents are responsive to any queries. A great place to vacation and feel at home all at the same time.

WONDERFUL STAY FOR OUR 25TH WEDDING ANIVERSARY

  • 5 of 5
We had a nice 15 nights stay in this lovely apartment. It is decorated with taste and very convenient. We enjoyed having diners on the patio under the stars. It is a very charming and quiet place. We are often on the island for vacation and Spring Court is a place I do not hesitate to recommend.
We liked the south coast for its beaches and restaurants. The nearest beach which is the Accra beach is our favorite beach on the south coast along with Enterprise beach in Oistin. We went for the first time to Oistin fish market on the Friday night and really enjoyed the celebrating atmosphere and the fish being served on place. We also went to our favorite restaurants on the south coast(Tapas, Harlequin, Brown Sugar, ...) and dicovered the Cafe Luna in front of Enterprise beach. It is a nice place to have diner. You see the moon reflecting in the sea below while having excellent meal under the stars.

We love Barbados so much for its people, its safety and its beautiful beaches and weather that we decided to buy a property.

Owner's Response: Christian, your enthusiasm for 'my' island is contagious. You are becoming a true Bajan! Love it when you go through immigration and the officer glances at your many passport stamps and says, "welcome home."

VACANCES FANTASTIQUES!!

  • 5 of 5
Nous avons passé 15 magnifiques nuitées dans cette belle propriété du sud de la Barbade du 20 juillet au 4 août dernier. Nous sommes des habitués et des inconditionnels de la Barbade depuis plusieurs années. Le "Springcourt" est très bien situé, près de la splendide plage Accra ainsi que de nombreux restaurants. Une voiture est toutefois recommandée.
Pour ce qui est de la propriété elle-même, on ne peut demander mieux! Décorée avec beaucoup de soin, de minutie et d'attention, ce fut un réel plaisir d'y habiter!
Encore une fois, un grand merci à Cathrin, ainsi qu'à Brian le "caretaker" qui nous a si bien accueilli!

oodles to choose from in the St. Lawrence Gap
Car: recommended

The property is centrally located and yet situated at the end of a cul-de-sac in a quiet residential neighborhood adjacent to Rockley Golf & Country Club. Accra Beach and Crystal Waters are just one and two miles away. Vibrant St. Lawrence Gap, the heart of the island's night-life with many clubs, bars, and rum shops is 4 miles away. The wide choice of restaurants range from moderately priced to upscale and sure to please all tastes. The bustling capitol of Bridgetown, Grantley Adams Int'l Airport, Oistins for fish fry and the Sheraton Mall with multiplex cinema are all within an 8-miles radius. Supermarkets and banking are nearby as well as a post office and 24hr service station. One supermarket has a shuttle service free-of-charge. A car is recommended but not essential as there are plenty of taxis and buses (#9 & #11) operating nearby. Arrangements can be made so that a rental car will be waiting for you at the apartment along with a breakfast starter package for your first morning.
