Sapphire Beach is a contemporary condominium property located right on Dover Beach in St Lawrence Gap. It enjoys real privacy with two pools in the grounds of the property and private gates onto the beach. There is 24 hour security, a gym and allocated car parking (although no car required) on site. There is a supermarket within a few hundred yards and dozens of restaurants and bars just a leisurely stroll along the 'Gap'. Apartment 115 is on two floors with an en suite twin bedroom with its own private patio plus laundry room on the ground floor and an en suite bedroom with king size bed, fully equipped kitchen, lounge and balcony on the first floor. The interior is designed in a contemporary style with a dining table on the balcony to seat 6 people. Free Wifi and an ipod dock is available and from the balcony you can watch the famous Barbados sunset with a rum punch in your hand. A great place to relax and chill out.
We live in the UK (Northampton) and are both recently retired. We both like sport in general and cricket in particular so have enjoyed many trips to the Caribbean to watch England play over the years. In 2009 we decided to purchase the unit at Sapphire Beach in Barbados both as an investment but also as a place to spend time during the British winter. Currently we manage a couple of trips a year so can keep a close eye on the property.
We chose Sapphire Beach off plan because of its location right on Dover Beach at the end of St Lawrence Gap with bars and restaurants within walking distance so no need to hire a car on a day to day basis. The duplex nature of the unit means direct access to the pool area from the ground floor and a balcony to watch the sunsets and the world go by on the first floor without having to use the communal lifts to the upper floor properties.
Barbados is a beautiful island and the people are friendly and welcoming.
The unit is a modern build so has all the contemporary design and facilities you want (incl free WiFi) yet still provides the charm and romance of a 'place on the beach'.
