Once you can pull your eyes away from the spectacular sea views, you will find that this lovely third floor apartment also features free internet access, a private terrace, pool & deck area, jetty, and what amounts to a private beach. The master bedroom contains a king size bed & en-suite bath, with tub/shower, while the other bedroom has a queen bed and adjacent bath w/shower. Also included are linens, towels, soap, hair dryer, iron/board and tissue. There are ceiling fans throughout, and both bedrooms have A/C. The fully equipped kitchen features a dishwasher, microwave, coffee maker, blender & small clothes washer/dryer unit. The apartment includes flat screen Satellite TV, and local phone calls. A tropical decorating theme prevails. Each apartment in the gated 17 unit building has access to an elevator, secure parking, larger washer/dryer units and poolside access to bathrooms.
Just to let you know how much we enjoyed our stay in the apartments. It is extremely cold over here at the moment, a real shock to the system!
St. Lawrence Gap apartments was a wonderful place to stay during our trip to Barbados. The apartment was clean & well-maintained, and the apartment & property were just as described in the listing. These apartments are in a great location - close to restaurants and beaches. If you're into nightlife, you won't be disappointed.
The apartments were not crowded. Typically, we would see 3 or 4 other people at the most around the pool at one time. Also, the apartments felt safe. There were guards on duty around the clock. The beach area in front of the apartments is quite small, but one can still swim there (but it is rocky). We swam around the corner and saw some fish and large conch shells. A larger beach was a short walk down the Gap. For $5 a day, we could rent a beach umbrella with chairs. Very nice. On our last day, it rained in the morning and sea turtles came to the beach where we were swimming. We were able to swim with the turtles. It was awesome!
Barbara was very helpful prior to our arrival. If you're going to rent a car, be sure to use the company she recommends. We went with another company and everything was fine, but the company she recommends has an office at the airport with really helpful employees. Our comany isn't located at the airport and we had some trouble finding the representative. But it all worked out in the end.
I would recommend Barbados if you're considering a carribbean island for your next vacation. Everyone is friendly on the island, it feels pretty safe and the weather is gorgeous. My only dislike about Barbados are the steep prices for food. Much more expensive than the U.S., but if you know what to expect then you can factor it into your budget.
One more thing..if you stay in these apartments, consider going into Bridgetown for a grocery store. The grocery stores that we found closest to St. Lawrence Gap had very limited selection. But we found a wonderful grocery store in the Bridgetown area.
Set in the popular St.Lawrence Gap area, restaurants, entertainment and unique, colourful boutiques are only steps away. Other area amenities include banks, salons an internet café, and a corner market all a short walk down 'The Gap'. A larger supermarket is within walking distance as well. A rental car is not necessary as buses and taxis are inexpensive and plentiful. While the building itself is situated on a beach, it is also adjacent to the gorgeous sands of Dover and Worthing Beaches. Snorkelling and other water sports are highly recommended and easily obtainable.
Whether it is tranquillity by the sea, an entertaining stroll, or a delicious meal that you want, this getaway in the Gap has it all!
