This distinctive townhouse overlooks the West Coast of Barbados and although peaceful and quiet is a mere stones throw from the beach, local amenities, restaurants and duty free shopping. The property is a 15 minute drive from the capital city of Bridgetown and also in close proximity to the island's three brilliant golf courses Sandy Lane, Royal Westmoreland and the recently opened Apes Hill.
You are also 10 minutes away from Holetown with its colorful shops and many restaurants and bars. This townhouse is located at the end of a hillside cul-de-sac taking full advantage of the cooling trade winds and magnificent views of the West Coast.
And if you like water sports all you have to do is take the short walk down to the beach where friendly locals will assist with jet-skis, water-skiing, diving the coral reefs and even swimming with giant turtles (amazing!). Or if you prefer you can soak up the rays on the lovely roof terrace whilst watching sail boats and cruise ships travel up and down the coast.
Fitts Village is 500 yards away, Holetown is a 10 minute drive away, Speightstown another 10 minute drive and Bridgetown is 15 minutes away. Oistins and St. Lawrence Gap on the bustling south coast is 20 minutes away. It will take you a little less than an hour to get to Bathsheba or Bath on the east coast, but these beautiful villages set on the Atlantic side of Barbados are simply stunning.
The local grocery store (Jordans) is a 5 minute walk away, as is the bus that takes you up and down the coast or pretty much wherever you want to go.
My family and I bought our Barbados townhouse in August of 2008. Having visited this beautiful island many times we finally decided to establish stronger ties to Barbados and purchased our very own piece of paradise. We visit the island as often as we can - and on rainy days back home it is great to have memories to look back on and the next visit to look forward to.
There are always new things to do and see when we visit Barbados, but we always go back to Batsheba village on the East coast. It is such a beautiful place to spend a lazy Sunday, enjoy a picnic and watch the Atlantic waves hit the shore. The contrasts to the white beaches of the West coast with is's calmer Caribbean Sea reminds you of what a diverse and beautiful island Barbados is.
