#9 Freshwater sits adjacent to the parking facilities and is a 15 minute walk to Kensington Oval (5 min drive), the home of cricket in Barbados; 30 minute walk to Broad Street, Bridgetown (7 min drive); 20 minute walk to University of the West Indies Cave Hill (4-5 minute drive). It really is an excellent hideaway for the whole family and the owners often enjoy long weekends in the apartment when it is vacant. Occupants are at liberty to go to the supermarket of their choice to satisfy their individual requirements and the apartment contains everything that you would find in your own home - and if you don't find it, just ask - no reasonable request will be denied. Also, free, high speed, wireless internet available now!
Gardens and beach: there is access to lovely gardens which borders one of the famous West Coast beaches and calm waters. Late in the afternoon, you can relax in the garden and watch the sunset. There is a clear view of the Bridgetown Harbour and you may even witness the large cruise ships as they enter and exit the port. There is also access to a gazebo within the property. See above for further details.
Barbados is 166 sq miles. The Freshwater property sits on a beach, but a change of scenery is as close as a 5 minute walk, or a 35 minute drive over to the other side of the island.
Special interest holidays
From high performance World Rally Cars to a tram ride through the extensive Harrison's Cave, to name two out of hundreds of activities on the island, there is truly never a dull moment in Barbados... unless you choose to relax and enjoy the Caribbean.
If you are arriving by plane, Grantley Adams International Airport will be your first experience and truly, as a person that travels regularly as part of my job, in my opinion it is one of the best run in the world. A 30 minute drive will have you at Freshwater. Arriving by cruise ship, you will enter the Bridgetown Harbour where you can see the property as you dock. A taxi ride will have you on our beach within 5 minutes.

My name is Chris Maloney and my family (wife and 2 kids aged 10 & 7) love spending long weekends at this apartment. It's literally 65 steps to the white sandy beach and the beach runs south for about 1 1/2 miles and North about another mile. We really do have a great time in the water during the day, then watching the sunset over a rum or 8, and then, sometimes we strike up the BBQ and have a great meal outside under the gazebo. I would love for you to experience my island home!
It is very difficult to find reasonably priced property on the west coast of Barbados - particularly directly on the beach!! This is a cozy 2 bedroom apartment that we could manage and I pass my pricing onto my guests. It really is an affordable place to stay and you enjoy the beach, gardens and the priceless sunsets every day.
One of the greatest benefits is that, after a morning spent in the sea, the kids are exhausted and normally drift off to sleep in the early afternoon, leaving my wife and I with much needed quality time. Outside of that, I find the gardens and loungers very relaxing.
