Spacious 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom waterfront family home with private plunge pool
The moment that you enter ‘Windward’ you will begin to experience an atmosphere of luxury. The entrance approached through landscaped gardens draws you straight to cool tropical furnishings of the spacious living room and then the spectacular views beyond through the sun terrace of the tranquil aquamarine waters of the lagoon and and the splendid yachts in their moorings. You will be soothed by the gentle breeze of the Tradewinds wafting through the apartment to bring a refreshing feel to this tropical climate.
This unusually large, air conditioned apartment with comfortable luxury has everything for the perfect holiday or extended stay, a well appointed kitchen with its open counter through to the living room, two super large bedrooms each with their own marble tiled bathrooms, a dining/sun lounging terrace, a plunge pool, and one of the most idyllic beaches in Barbados.
Located on the small island in the lagoon in the beautiful marina resort of Port St Charles, boasting one of the best beaches and reefs in Barbados. Peaceful setting.
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, with the 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, a variety of shops, art galleries, rum bars, and restaurants. The more modern Holetown is 15 mins and Bridgetown the capital 30 mins away. Travel by bus (a hair raising ride in a yellow bus for $2) 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.

Through the large French doors, which you will undoubtedly leave open all the time, you enter the terrace which offers a delightful area for outdoor dining, just steps away from the water’s edge. Air conditioning and ceiling fan and option, but rarely needed.
THE KITCHEN is well appointed with fridge freezer, dishwasher, cooker, microwave, liquidiser and all the tools to help you create delicious meals using fantastic local produce and freshly caught fish from the nearby fish market.

Why we chose Port St Charles: Owned by David and Lisa Stoute. 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.
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 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. There is no need for me to say all this - just read the reviews,and you will wish to stay here too.

We stayed in this beautifully appointed and fully equipped apartment in Port St. Charles for one week. The master bedroom had an American king size bed - perfect for my 6'5" husband. Large ensuite bathroom with double sink vanity and lots of storage. Plenty of hot water. Lots of Closet space in the bedroom with tons of hangers. The kitchen had fridge with built in ice maker and water dispenser. The veranda was fantastic - the private plunge pool was an excellent place to cool off. Water taxi will take you to the beach or yacht club - just call reception.. Very fast . I would recommend a trip to Holetown to the Massey supermarket to pick up groceries - they have everything. I would definitely stay here again.
Lovely apartment in quiet location
This was our second visit to Port St. Charles. As before we found the staff welcoming and the marina very well maintained, especially the gardens. The yacht club restaurant is a pleasant location to visit during the day or in the evening.
The apartment is very comfortable and well equipped with pleasant furnishings, all of which were well cared for regularly during our visit.
We have already booked for next year and hopefully will return for many years to come.
8th visit to PSC October Half Term
Great holiday as always shame the Yacht Club was closed the first week. The new chef needs to improve too!!
Apartment was great and we really appreciated being allowed to stay in until 14.00 thank you.
Just one observation the 2nd bedroom really could do with proper curtains.
Thank you excellent service would highly recommend you.
A Lovely apartment in a great location
We had a lovely trip for 10 days in September, we normally stay in a hotel but wanted to try an apartment. We felt very safe and secure here with very well maintained grounds and a lovely beach and reef for snorkelling on your doorstep. We were delighted with the apartment the welcome package from Lisa was really useful and much appreciated, everything was clean and spacious and looked exactly like the photos. It was very quiet when we stayed which suited us as we had the pool and the beach to ourselves most days. The only thing that was disappointing was that the yacht club was closed during our stay and so there was no where to go on site for a drink or snack ,we will return to Windward which was great but will choose a time when the club is open.
Thank you for staying with us, we enjoyed having you and look forward to your return.
Our private Oasis
Fabulous condo, beautifully decorated, zen feel. Vacationed the end of April and had the spectacular infinity pool to ourselves daily. Utilized the water taxi for a tour of the property and then to a stunning white sand beach. We felt like we were living among the rich and famous. Local transit right outside the front gate. We took the local transit to the Animal Flower Cave for a delicious lunch over looking the north shore and then through the cave. A short stroll to Speightstown for shopping and restaurants.
Second visit as good as the first
This was our second visit to Windward, so obviously we were happy with the property! We visited with another couple for 10 days at the beginning of March. The unit was as presented in the photos. Lots of space for 4 people. Comfortable beds and quiet location. Especially enjoyed the outside space, comfortable furniture and room to lounge and enjoy the great weather. Good WiFi, and for those who enjoy a movie at night, good viewing options on the TV. We ate dinner at home most nights, and the kitchen is well stocked (although a little tight for more than one person to work in). Plenty of pots, pans and sharp knives (a must for my husband, the cook!). The beach at this property is great, lounge chairs and umbrellas can be set up at your request. Great snorkelling right off the beach! One thing missing, a cooler for taking cold drinks and snacks down to the beach, this would have been a positive addition to the stay. Speightstown is within walking distance. Local fish market provides fresh, cheap fish on a daily basis. Lots of local vendors on the street in order to purchase reasonably priced fruit and vegetables. Wine and beer can be bought in Speightstown, although better selection is available in Holetown. Plenty of restaurant options as well. Enjoyed a meal at the Fishermen's Pub, loved the owner with his matching hat and bow tie! Dinner at the Fish Pot was excellent as well. Would return if another trip to Barbados is in our future!
