St. Lawrence Gap Apartment Rental Photos and Description
Two bedroomed apartment in Sapphire Beach condos with wifi and ipod dock

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.

Mark Newton purchased this apartment in 2009

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'.

We have just recently returned from a stay at 115 Sapphire Beach and I really can't rate the apartment highly enough! Firstly as others have mentioned, the service from Mark and Sue was first class. All emails and questions were answered really promptly and with such friendliness that we didn't hesitate to book. The fact that one of the maids told us that Mark and Sue are her favourite owners at Sapphire Beach says it all really!
Now onto the apartment; I looked at many listings before I decided on number 115 and am glad I chose this one. 115 is located in the third block right at the end of the pool and gives a real sense of privacy. The apartment is spacious, modern and well equipped with everything you could need for a self catering holiday in Barbados. The kitchen is well equipped with cooker, microwave, toaster, dishwasher, coffee maker and large fridge freezer. We really enjoyed our coffee and toast in the mornings sitting on the balcony overlooking the beautiful Caribbean Sea. We also made good use of the ice-maker attached to the freezer. We didn't use the downstairs bedroom as we were there as a couple but it is very nicely furnished with two twin beds, TV, decent sized fridge and its own bathroom. This bedroom also has the patio outside with direct access to the pool which we used on a few occasions. The upstairs bedroom has a very large king size bed which we found very comfortable and also has a TV and two spacious walk in closets (with a safe in one of them to store valuables) and ensuite bathroom. The living area is equipped with large TV and lovely modern furnishings and we made good use of the Bose sound dock with our ipods. We also really liked the balcony on this apartment as it is fully open and I think gives a much more spacious feel and a better view of the beautiful sea. The pool area and gardens are beautifully landscaped and very well maintained. There is security on site 24hrs and we always felt very safe. The apartment was in a great location being about a ten minute walk from the gap with lots of bars and restaurants. There is also a small convenience store called the Dover Market a few minutes walk away.
Lastly, Dover Beach is absolutely beautiful! Soft white sand and glorious turquoise sea! The water was really calm while we there so it was lovely to swim in and this is where we spent most of our time.
Thanks Mark and Sue for letting us stay in your wonderful apartment! We will be back!
Owner's Response: What a great review and many thanks. It sums up everything we try to achieve in the apartment whilst the location speaks for itself. We look forward to welcoming you back. Mark & Sue.

I just wanted to say thanks very much for the use of the apartment. We absolutely loved it as did my sister and husband. There is something totally relaxing about Barbados. I think I could quite happily live out there. I would love to go back next year with my daughters. (n.b. this review is taken from an email received from the guest after their stay).

Your condo is beautiful. we really enjoyed the lovely breeze and used the air conditioning only at night. The proximity to the pool and the beach was perfect and we really appreciated that we were able to walk to dinner every night. Our interaction with local residents was warm and friendly. We would love to visit again in the future. It has been a pleasure working with you. (n.b. this review is taken from an email sent by the guest after their visit).

My wife and I (36 and 35) and our 1.5 year old daughter had without question one of the BEST vacations/holidays one could have at Sapphire Beach 115. On previous trips to the Dover Beach hotels I witnessed this building being constructed first hand and knew it would be special once it opened. Let me tell you it did not dissapoint! The quality of construction, the amenities, the grounds, the pools (yes 2 pools), the sense of security (not that it is needed in Barbados) and exclusivity were all top notch and certainly must rival that of the West Coast developments. Furthermore, the owners Mark and Sue make you feel like friends almost immediately upon inquiring about their property. This level of comfort with Mark and Sue cannot be overstated especially when your renting an apartment from someone very far away from where you live.
The apartment is huge and delivers the ultimate in Barbados vacations/holidays on 2 floors overlooking the pool and out to the ocean. Restaurants, bars and a convenience store are all very short walk away which is even more important for a family with a baby/toddler in tow. I also should not forget the beautiful Dover Beach directly in front of you where beach chairs are available for rent.
This was our 5th trip to Barbados in as many years and we are so glad we found this apartment and its owners. We will be hard pressed to stay anywhere else ever again when in Barbados (as a matter of fact we just booked another stay!!)
Your search is truly over. Contact Mark and Sue right now!
Owner's Response: We couldn't ask for a better review. Our aim has always been to provide accommodation and a service which will entice people to return on a regular basis. Fortunately we have had four families return at least once and two other families who have booked for a third time in just over two years.

Fantastic !!

Spent 9 days here end of November beginning of December. What a beautiful place, the views are to die for. We had breakfast on the balcony every morning gazing out to the beautiful turquoise sea. If only I could wake up to a view like that every day. Apartment was clean and well maintained with everything you could possibly want. Nice change to have beach towels provided. Didn't use the pools an awful lot as the sea was too enticing and just steps away. We like the South of the Island as there is always plenty to do and its lovely mix with local people. We always hire a car and parking was beside the apartment - very convenient. Security was also good here and very friendly. Going back ?............why yes of course !!

Owner's Response: As this is our first listed guest review since purchasing the apartment in December 2009, we couldn't ask for more. The review sums up what we hope all our guests think about the place itself and the wonderful location.
