Overview

Silver Sands Barbados Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Luxurious 2 bedroom and 1 bedroom apartments right on Silver Sands Beach

All units at the Inchcape Seaside Villas stand for extravaganza in architecture and Caribbean lifestyle at its best. “House Seaside”, House Sunset, The Seaside Cottages, the Garden Apartment and the Coconut Studio are more than just a place to stay. Our accommodations let you experience the exotic mix, flavor and coziness of an old Caribbean plantation style property, serving today as beautifully located ocean front holiday homes, on the western end of the white sand beach of Silver Sands with it’s crystal clear and turquoise blue waters of the Caribbean Sea. “The Seaside-Cottages”, can be considered a fine example of beautifully designed and finished West Indian homes. The houses are framed by a natural garden of tropical plants and trees and its wooden decks and terraces on the ground and second floor level, just a few meters from the water’s edge, are responsible for breathtaking and unobstructed views of the Caribbean Sea. The Inchcape units truly are a wonderful experience.

Windsurfing: The spot to windsurf in Barbados is the area of Silver Sands, where the conditions are challenging yet forgiving and where circumstances are unbelievably convenient - and Inchcape is located right on the edge of Silver Sands beach.

You only rig up once and store your equipment just a few steps from the water. Shower, shade, relaxation area, everything combined right at your house, right on the spot, which is so unique. We have made it possible for you to enjoy this luxury windsurfing experience at our gorgeous vacation home, Inchcape in Silver Sands, on the Caribbean island of Barbados.

Sounds to good to be true?!? May be it does, but this dream will come true for you when you decide to come and stay with the people who discovered Silver Sands as a world class wave windsurfing spot. In 1978 Rosi and Wolfgang, your hosts at Inchcape, were the first people to ever sail at Silver Sands' reef formations.

Kitesurfing: Jim Drake, one of the inventors of windsurfing in the '70s, had already experimented with a wing, shaped like a hangglider, in the early stages of windsurfing... Time has gone by and the wing has become a kite which finally turned out to be an appropriate alternative for accelerating a surfboard using windpower.

Since kitesurfing really started taking off about two years ago, the still relatively small kitesurfing community learned quickly that special circumstances are needed to make kitesurfing a safe and enjoyable experience.

Barbados isn't only blessed with it's unique windsurfing conditions, it also proved to have some of the most ideal kitesurfing beaches possible. There are first of all the beaches around Inchcape, like Silver Sands and Silver Rock, which attract most of the kitesurfers. Brian Talma's Action Shop at Silver Rock is available for kitesufing lessons.

Surfing: When the world was created, Barbados was given an abundance of potential for becoming a surfer's paradise. The island's location far out in the Atlantic Ocean allows waves to travel thousands of kilometers on the bottom of the sea to finally unload all the power they developed during the long journey over Barbados' coral reefs.

As Barbados is a coral island, a coral reef stretches all around Barbados' coastline, providing for unlimited surfing conditions all over. No matter whether a swell approaches the island from a northerly or westerly direction or whether it's moving in from the East or the South, Barbados is guaranteed to have surf somewhere along it's shores at almost any given day of the year.

Also Inchcape is blessed with a surf break right in front of the property:

The shorebreak at Inchcape on the western end of Silver Sands beach is a pitchy shorebreak and can fit all sorts of descriptions, from mushy to super clean, it can be quite powerful or moderate and changes daily

About Wolfgang Lange

We are the people who discovered Silver Sands for the sport of windsurfing. We were the first windsurfers in Silver Sands and made Silver Sands known as one of the best wave windsurfing spots in the world.

Wolfgang Lange purchased this apartment in 1992

Why Wolfgang Lange chose Silver Sands Barbados

The Inchcape Seaside Villas are situated in a unique location, right on the water at the western end of Silver Sands Beach. Inchcape, as it presents itself today, developed from a plantation style property from 1920 and combines now the charm of the old with all modern amenities. Due to our location and proximity to the water we enjoy the best climate Barbados has to offer.

The houses have constantly been renovated and upgraded and Inchcape is recognized today as a unique and one of the most luxurious properties of such a kind in Barbados. Our beach is a beautiful and almost private beach, and has it all, from calm waters like on a pond to a small shore break at one end of the beach, which makes it the perfect beach paradise which suits a broad range of holiday makers. Silver Sands Beach can be for everybody, from the sport enthusiast to the one who just wants to relax and enjoy the beautiful turquoises waters of this pristine white sand beach.

What makes this apartment unique

Our beach, the almost perfect climate due to the gentle breezes of the trades and our proximity to the water, our strategically location, just a few minutes away from the Oistins fish market and shops and restaurants, and still being in pure nature just minutes away from everything one wants to be close to.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Wolfgang and Rosie, we arrived safely, but shaken and exhausted to Europe, where the temperatures are just 30 degrees lower than yours :(

We would like to again thank your for your kindness and for being prepared to host our unforgetable wedding. Thanks again

Simply the best....

  • 5 of 5

We’ve stayed on the Island many times before and the place remains as welcoming as back in 1984. But of all the places we’ve stayed, Inchcape Villas is by far the best- by a mile. Seaside Cottage A is in our view perfect for a couple with its airy open plan layout and three terraces. You don’t need aircon (or even a fan) since the bedroom is well ventilated by louvered shutters and we always sleep even better at Inchcape Villas than at home!

Having just finished our second stay we had no hesitation in putting down a deposit for next year – it really is that good and all the staff are first rate with special praise for our maid Norma who kept our cottage immaculate.

You do need a car here and suggest you check this out with Wolfgang before you arrive as we’ve met a few who had to wait over a week for one.

Well done Wolfgang and Rosie for running such an enjoyable holiday experience.

Superb Holiday Accommodation

  • 5 of 5

We really were pleasantly surprised when we arrived at Inchcape Villas. The architecture and gardens are beautiful, the location perfect and apartments are of a very high standard indeed.

The property is a very short drive (5 mins) to Oistins, where there is the fish market for superb locally caught fresh-fish at very reasonable prices, a good supermarket, etc...

We came this time with surfing in mind: the property is located between Freights Bay and Surfer's Point - under 5 minutes to one or the other and great waves at both spots.

The welcome was warm and Wolfgang and Rosie are charming hosts. I intend to return to my new favourite Barbados accommodation and would not hesitate in recommending to anyone.

Thank you for a wonderful holiday, see you soon!

Outstanding

  • 5 of 5

Very well designed and perfect for a couple. The three decks give various aspects so you can enjoy the sun, the views of the coast or tropical gardens depending on your preference. The staff do a good job, they are discreet and efficient. All in all a great place to stay

A great find along the south coast!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at Inchcape for 8 nights - the first two nights in Seaside Cottage B and the remaining nights in Seaside Cottage C.

THE ACCOMMODATION: Both cottages were beautifully decorated and laid out, each with two floors - the bed on the upper floor and the kitchen/living/bathroom on the ground floor. Each had an outdoor terrace at ground level, and Seaside Cottage B had an outdoor deck on the upper floor. The kitchen was stocked with all the pots, pans, plates, glasses and cutlery we needed, although no spices, oils, coffee, or tea. Both cottages had a great cross-breeze, so we were never too hot. We were pleased with the cleanliness as well, although we would advise keeping all food in the fridge to avoid attracting ants. The drain in the shower of Seaside Cottage C drained quite slowly, but other than that everything worked perfectly. Rosi and Wolfgang were exceptionally nice, and they have great recommendations for things to do, places to eat, etc., on the island. The other staff are excellent and friendly as well.

THE LOCATION: Inchcape is situated on the southern tip of Barbados, which means that during the winter months you can see the sun rise over the water in the east and set over the water in the west. From the beautiful and big garden/yard at Inchcape, with the chairs and day beds overlooking the water, we would watch each sunrise and sunset. It was magical! For those who know the story of the Little Prince, we felt like we were on his planet: to watch the sunrise and sunset, all we had to do was turn our chairs around! There is a little corner store for snacks and basic provisions a short walk away, and a really great bar/restaurant about 200 yards away, and two big beaches within walking distance, but to explore beyond that you will need a car. When we were there, all of the beaches along the east coast were covered with seaweed -- when I asked a few locals about it, they said it happens to both coasts, and it isn't easy to predict when it will happen. While my wife and I do not kite surf, we saw many on the two nearby beaches - Silver Sands in particular - and we've heard that it is a particularly good spot for this sport.

We also took advantage of Inchcape's offer to arrange transportation to/from the airport, as well as the rental car - both were handled seamlessly.

We would definitely recommend this place to family and friends.

Dreamlike Holidays!

  • 5 of 5

We totally enjoyed our fourth stay at Inchcape Seaside Villas. This is such a great place and once you found it you keep coming back. Inchcape has such a wonderful setting with a beautiful tropical garden to relax and a great beach in front. The owners Rosi and Wolfgang as well as the whole staff are very friendly and helpful. If you want to calm down and relax and/or do all kinds of watersports, this is the right place. We love the architecture and the interior design of the villas. Everything is very authentic, elegant and with lots of atmosphere. A real gem on Barbados.

We hope to come back soon!

Inchcape Seaside Villas is great!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Inchcape Seaside Villas, it was exactly the type of Barbados holiday we were looking for. The property overlooks the Caribbean, at a location popular for kite surfing; it was beautiful to see so many kites in the air! The villa was very nice and clean, and the view from the grounds is spectacular. It was so peaceful to fall asleep to the sound of the waves and the balmy breeze at night. It's a great location from which to explore all parts of the island by car. It's a short car drive into Popular Oistins, for the fish market, groceries, etc. nice beaches within walking distance, and just a casual stroll to the Surfers Bay beachside restaurant. Norma and the staff are very pleasant; and Wolfgang was very attentive. A great place to stay when visiting Barbados!

The villas and apartments are located on the very private ocean front estate of the “Inchcape Seaside Villas”, which is clustered on the southern most tip of Barbados. The houses are facing into the gentle breezes of the trades, which provide for the most perfect climate Barbados has to offer, never too warm or too cold. Inchcape also overlooks one of the island's most beautiful and unspoiled white sand beaches and is surrounded by brilliant clear, turquoise blue water. The beach is heaven for swimming and snorkeling, windsurfing and kitesurfing, surfing and boogie boarding. One side of Silver Sands Beach can have a little shore beak while the other side is much calmer and ideal for swimming and sea bathing. Life in this part of the island is casual and unhurried in the true Barbadian tradition. The small fishing village of Oistins is just a few minutes away and there are plenty of restaurants and supermarkets from in walking distance to just minutes away by car.

Other Activities: kitesurfing, boogie boarding, bodysurfing, and much more.

Golf: The Inchcape management gladly arranges tee times and lessons. The Barbados Golf Club, Sandy Lane and Royal Westmoreland have excellent pro shops. The combination of golf, sun and the Caribbean Sea, a comfortable place To stay at Inchcape and enjoying the privilege of being able to play a round of Golf at Royal Westmoreland, aren't those reasons enough to try Barbados for a golf vacation?

General Info

Barbados has excellent 18-hole championship golf courses. Sandy Lane with two Tom Fazio designed courses will rank amongst the finest golf resorts in the world. The elegance and beauty of the course of Royal Westmoreland golf course, one of the best of Robert Trent Jones jr.'s designs, is outstanding and if there is one course to play in Barbados, it's definitely the one of Royal Westmoreland. The Barbados Golf and Country Club at Durants near Oistins and Silver Sands along with the 18-hole signature course at Apes Hill round up the picture of Barbados as a world class quality golf destination and makes the island a serious contender for being the No.1 Golf destination in the Caribbean.
