I should have written this review five years ago when my husband and I rented out all of Inchape's units for our wedding in Barbados--An absolutely perfect location to host all of our guests for an entire week. After my most recent trip I knew I had to write a review. To say Inchape is idyllic, is an understatement. It is, quite frankly, perfect. On my first visit, we rented Cottage A, which was lovely. Two outdoor patios, plus a rooftop deck. Cool ocean breezes at night. Additionally, our guests took up nearly every other rental on the property, and each and everyone unit was unique. Another reviewer mentioned "old fashioned charm," which I would completely agree. There is something very simple, clean and airy about all the spaces. Exactly what you would want in the caribbean.
This time, I stayed in the Sunset apartment upstairs with panoramic views of the ocean. It was amazing to fall asleep every night with waves of the ocean crashing only moments away. It was utterly relaxing. Both stays have been more than enjoyable. Rosie and Wolfgang make sure everything is taken care of for you to have the best stay possible. From borrowing their cooler, to sipping a bottle of wine with them, they are the epitome of host and great taste.
If you are looking for a vacation away from the masses, swampy hotel pools, and mindless travelers, then Inchcape is your place. It's clean, quiet and private. A place to unwind. This place is not for those who want to be served by a pool and eat at the onsite restaurant. You have a fully equipped kitchen and functioning apartment here. For me, I loved this because it is what traveling is all about. Getting to know a place and its people. Choose to use the kitchen or not. Personally, we stored wine in the fridge and brewed coffee. That was the extent of its usage. Additionally, the surf bar is just up the road and pours one of the best rum punches on the island. I cannot say enough about Inchcape. I am already dreaming of my next visit.
