Overview

About the property

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.

LOCATION INFORMATION

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.

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.

Second visit as good as the first

  • 5 of 5

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!

Fantastic place in a wonderful setting

  • 5 of 5

We stayed last year and had to come back this year again because it's so lovely. It's a little slice of heaven which is luxury for my wife and I to relax in, but also loved by the kids for the choice of pools, stunning beach or yacht club....with swim up bar for easy milkshake access!

The reef just off the beach is packed with fish, turtles and a charming squid family! So pack a snorkel kit. Everything from the apartment to the grounds to the beaches is very well maintained. All the staff are super friendly and helpful too.

Lisa and David are great hosts and also sorted us out a car for our stay. We usually like to try different countries and villas....but Barbados & Windward are so good we had to come back. Problem is....I'm not sure we will be able to stop!

Thanks for everything Lisa & David. Great memories again.

We loved the villa it was spotless and close to lots of amenities.

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic holiday with our two children here. The villa had everything we could wish for. Perfect location with a fabulous beach. We have mixed views of the yacht club but the apartment and beach were 5 star. We would love to come back.

Beautiful Stay in Barbados

  • 5 of 5

This property was absolutely perfect. Very well maintain and just like it looks in the photos. The location was very convenient to golf, shopping and beaches (the three things we cared most about). Lisa was extremely helpful and responsive during our stay helping us through some sticky points of our own causing. All-in-all it was a wonderful stay and I would recommend this unit highly.

Don't miss Fisherman's Pub in Speightstown. Its true Bajan food in a wonderful local setting. We weren't too sure at first but the food is great and the owner very friendly and colorful. Check it out.
