We fell in love with Port St Charles the first time we drove past the gated entry in 2002. We were exploring the Northern part of the island, and just had to stop and view this delightful place. Construction was still going on, but the place was so beautifully managed it didn't matter.<BR><BR>We viewed several apartments, but the added bonus of a Plunge Pool on the terrace and being close to the water left us with no option but to choose Windward. We have had no regrets since. The ambience in the apartment and in Port St Charles is so relaxing and refreshing. It is a delight to walk around Port St Charles taking in the beautiful tropical gardens and being engulfed by the heavy scent of flowers. We are also so fortunate to have one of the best swimming/ snorkelling/ sunbathing beaches on the island, and despite all beaches in Barbados being public the beach at Port St Charles is never busy.

About Nicola Aldridge

We Live in Hampshire, England and have 3 adult children and 4 grandchildren.

Nicola Aldridge purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Nicola Aldridge chose St. Peter

Owned by Mark and Nicola Aldridge. We fell in love with Port St Charles the first time we drove past the gated entry in 2002. We were exploring the Northern part of the island, and just had to stop and view this delightful place.

We viewed several apartments, and finally chose this one on the Beach. We have had no regrets since. The ambience in the apartment and in Port St Charles is so relaxing and refreshing. It is a delight to walk around Port St Charles taking in the beautiful tropical gardens and being engulfed by the heavy scent of flowers. We are also so fortunate to have one of the best swimming/ snorkeling/ sunbathing beaches on the island, and despite all beaches in Barbados being public the beach at Port St Charles is never busy. We also feel it is an added bonus to be near Speightstown which is a ‘locals’ small town (more like a village). It is not commercial, and we are away from the busy touristy areas of Barbados. Despite that we can hop in the car, on a bus or in a taxi and be down in the ‘action’ further south in minutes.

What makes this apartment unique

This property has the exceptional privilege of being situated on the Beach at Port St Charles, with views looking out onto the beach and the water. It is open and spacious, light and airy, and feels just like home - having all the facilities and equipment you would expect in your own home - if not more. Sensibly priced, at way below what you would expect to pay for this very special location in Port St Charles.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The most beautiful condo you will ever stay in!

I don't know where to begin other than to say this condo is the most beautiful condo I have ever seen. The entire place is top notch and nothing could be better. The kitchen is state of the art if you want to cook some meals and the bedrooms and media room are just perfect. The beds are very comfortable and having the option the turn the a/c on at night is a big plus. The resort is also fantastic and we couldn't decide where we wanted to spend our days so we just took turns at the beach, island pool and yacht club. You can walk over to the restaurant at night for dinner or walk into town where there are several great places to eat. If you feel up to it, you can also drive into Holetown (about 20 minutes) and dine at some of the best restaurants in the Caribbean. Don't even hesitate and rent this condo (if it is available!). It is very popular and now I know why. You will not want to ever leave.

Fantastic Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic apartment in a great location at Port St Charles. Pictures don't do it justice just steps from the beach and marina at rear. Great to have the yacht club so close as its got a great pool and bar/ restaurant and water taxi to and from. Everything as advertised, impeccably clean. Good communication with owner. Apartment highly recommended.

A lovely home on a beautiful beach

  • 5 of 5

Rather than paraphrase the other reviews, let me just say they are all correct in every respect. We had a lovely holiday here, and the best compliment I can give is to say we are rebooking for 2017.

Wow! Stuning, luxurious property and location

  • 5 of 5

Wow! This really is a stunning fabulous luxurious apartment. The views are amazing, right on the beach front on one side and lovely marina views from the back. The apartment is large and with an enormous balcony on both sides. The apartment is beautifully and tastefully furnished, it certainly feels like a luxurious home rather than a rental apartment. The description and photos are accurate. It is a very special location. The rooms are all spacious, everything you could think that you might need is here to use. The apartment was spotlessly clean and very well maintained. It has a calm relaxed chilling feel. We used the water taxi to hop over to the very good value PSC yacht club to eat and drink some days. Speightown is walking distance along the beach. Amazing place - do not hesitate to book, you will not be disappointed. Great communication and information from the owner. Loved it and would definitely return.

A beautiful apartment on the beach.

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautifully appointed apartment overlooking the beach on one side and the marina on the other. The apartment is very clean and very well organised. It has a home from home feeling about it. It was nice to have a welcome pack in the fridge on arrival. Although we did not cook, the kitchen is fully equipped, should you want to. The bedrooms are light and airy with comfortable beds, nice bed linen and lots of wardrobe space. There is also a safe.The bathrooms are beautiful and there were plenty of towels. We had a maid coming in two mornings a week, cleaning and changing linen. The apartment is situated on one of the best beaches on the island. We were very well taken care of by the beach staff, providing loungers and umbrellas. The Yacht Club nearby provides good food and drinks but should you want to venture further afield, there are some fantastic restaurants on the island. For this you will need transport though. We booked the driver who picked us up from the airport for the evenings we were going out. The apartment is decorated and furnished to a very high standard, all in all - a delight. We would love to go back and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment has been luxuriously designed and furnished to the very best of standards. We stayed for ten wonderful days and enjoyed the comfort and relaxation it afforded. Each room provided for our every need including the en-suite bathrooms and kitchen so that we could truly feel at home. Unfortunately though, home doesn't have the spectacular sea and lagoon views which can be seen from your bed when you awake in the morning in this lovely apartment. A refreshing breeze flows gently through the rooms keeping the air fresh and cool. We enjoyed most early evenings sipping cocktails as we watched the spectacular sunset from the terrace. The beach is just a few steps away, through a gate where sunbeds and parasols were set up for us whenever we wished. There is a complimentary water taxi available to take you to any part of Port St. Charles and we used this to visit the excellent Yacht Club for lunches and dinner when we didn't want to venture too far. There are many superb restaurants on Barbados and we managed to visit quite a few of them on the west coast, only a short taxi ride away. All the staff in Port St. Charles are friendly and helpful and greet you with a smile. This apartment has its own private maid (specially-appointed by the owners) who keeps everything spotless. In conclusion, this apartment is perfect for a relaxing holiday or as a base from which to explore the beautiful island. The security is excellent and we felt very safe throughout our stay. We have already booked our next trip!

Car: recommended

Located on the beach in the beautiful marina resort of Port St Charles, boasting one of the best beaches and reefs in Barbados. Port St Charles is 500m north of the small historic town of Speightstown. Here Caribbean life is as it has been for hundreds of years, fishermen bringing in the day's catch to be sold at the town's fish market, the colourfully dressed ladies by the side of the main street selling fresh fruit and vegetables, the general hustle and bustle of a genuine Caribbean 'town'. There are also small supermarkets, art galleries, bars, and restaurants. The more modern Holetown is 15mins and Bridgetown the capital 30mins away. Travel by bus or more sedately by car or taxi. The wild rugged East Atlantic coast is about 20 minutes away. Between PSC and there enjoy visiting Plantation Houses, working Sugar Cane fields, villages, the hills of Scotland, amazing vistas and more.
