Seaside Simplicity – Ocean Views and Quality Upgrades in St. Lawrence Gap
Sun, sea, lovely accommodations—all the essentials for an unforgettable Barbados vacation are here at this apartment in St Lawrence Gap!
VIEWS TO REMEMBER
Located within St. Lawrence Gap Condos, an intimate, 17-unit resort, Paradise Island boasts a seafront balcony with views that stretch endlessly in either direction.
Here, on the southern shore of Barbados, the Atlantic and Caribbean merge, creating ribbons of rich blue and turquoise water churned by Atlantic waves. It’s really something to see. Take your front row seat on the balcony, and be sure to snap some photos to look back on in the thick of wintertime!
These sea views anchor the open-concept living area at Paradise Island, which includes a sleek kitchen with stainless steel appliances, a 6-person dining table, and a lovely sitting area with a flat-screen TV. Settle in for a shared after-dinner bottle of wine or a cozy movie night with the sea glittering in the moonlight.
SPACE AND PRIVACY
The two-level layout at Paradise Island means you can enjoy each other’s company for as long as you want, then escape for alone time when you need it.
On the lower level, the master bedroom (with a king-sized bed), opens directly to its own patio which leads to the private beach and sparkling swimming pool. The second bedroom has a queen-sized bed, and the third optional bedroom provides two twin beds.
Don’t miss a wonderful feature at this complex: a private jetty stretching its long arm into the sea. There are only a dozen such jetties on Barbados, and this is the only PRIVATE jetty. The secret space the jetty provides is a lovely setting for sunbathing, sunset-watching—even the occasional wedding! Because only guests and residents can access it, you’ll often have it all to yourself for a moment of quiet contemplation.
When you crave activity instead, surrounding St. Lawrence Gap delights with its selection of local restaurants, authentic shops, and many other entertainment options.
Our goal is to give you a top-notch vacation in one of the world’s most beautiful places. Let us know what we can do to make your dream trip come true.
Greetings from beautiful Barbados! I am an American lucky enough to have met and fallen in love with a wonderful man from Barbados. Actually, I fell in love not just with the man but with his beautiful island home.
Greetings from a frigid Pennsylvania! Thinking just last Thursday, we were snorkeling off the coast and enjoying the Tiami (sp?) boat cruise (and the rum punches were not bad either).
I wanna go baaaaaaccccckkkkkk! The four of us absolutely loved the condo, the people, the weather, THE FOOD!, you name it, we loved it. We took a bus to Bridgetown and upon boarding, packed liked sardines, we encountered smiles and a barrage of "good mornings". I was standing butt-to-butt with an older woman and with each person boarding the bus, our butts rubbed together more frequently and closer. After the third time, I leaned back to her and said that we should introduce each other since our butts are getting together so much. Thankfully she broke out in a laugh and we introduced each other and smiled the rest of the way into town. We had a taxi driver stop us while walking in town, telling us we did not want to continue in the direction we were since it was not the nicer section of town. We then had a great lunch of samosas, fish cakes and rice at Ryannes (restaurant on second floor in town). Delish! We took an island tour from Mr. Ronald Adams mid-week - very gracious man and he took the time to annunciate a little more upon realizing my husband had trouble hearing and understanding him. Dover Beach was beautiful and we could not get over how polite the street vendors were - if you said no once, they stopped pursuing you to buy jewelry or whatever else they were selling. Our tour of Mt. Gay Rum was interesting and tasty! One night we actually stayed up past 10:00 at the Harbor Lights for dancing! Again, everyone was wonderful there. Jane Shattuck, the prop mgr was an absolute blessing on giving us info ahead of time of what sites to see, places to dine, and the culture (what goes on in Barbados...stays in Barbados!). You must put Jane Shattuck's condos on your bucket list for an absolutely wonderful vacation. We look forward to going back to Barbados in the years to come. Wishing you continued blessings! K.

My family and I totally enjoyed our visit to THE ISLAN. The accommodations could not have been more perfect for the four of us. That being within the unit as well as getting around up and down the Gap. My wife was on crutches so having everything right there was extremely convenient.
One of the handouts in the unit requested comments about restaurants in the area. I think Café Sol and Crave was on the list, both of which we visited. I would also add Primo and Sharkey’s. We had dinner at Primo’s and it was fabulous from appetizer to dessert. As you probably know, it is perhaps a bit more expensive than other places in the immediate area, but well worth it. The service was also fantastic. Five stars in our book.
We went to Sharkey’s down the street twice for lunch. The waitress was extremely friendly and really took interest in making sure we enjoyed our visit, especially the first visit. I asked about the fishcakes. Her response was if you are just getting here, “Don’t ask, just get them”. I did and they were great!!!!!
Just so you know, we went on the beach extravaganza at Harbor Lights, Best of Barbados tour which included Harrison’s Cave, green monkeys and snorkeling with sea turtles; Atlantis sub tour, swimming in the pool and beach at the condo, shopping in Bridgetown, just to name a few things. Ohhh and of course the Oistins Fish Fry. It was a fantastic week with your unit being are excellent home base.
Simply a fabulous time that we will never forget. We vowed to return no later than 2018, perhaps with additional family members. When we come back we will be staying in one of your units again and perhaps the same one.
THANK YOU so much Jane. If you have questions or want to know anything more, let me know.
This property is great! The layout is fabulous! We were a group of 2 couples and we each have a baby. There is 2 master suites (one upstairs and one downstairs) and 2 bathrooms which was great for privacy! The rooms are huge and both have a great view!
The kitchen is well stocked with anything you need.
This place is right at the start of the Gap, so you are as close as you need to be and still very quiet at night.
The staff is beyond welcoming and helpful! Ricardo is on top of everything and always ready to assist you with help or info on anything!
The only thing I would do different next time is bring an extra beach towel just in case the one (per person) provided isn't dry when you want to go back in the water.
BARBADOS, THE SOUTH COAST, & THE ST. LAWRENCE GAP
The south coast of Barbados is known for its beautiful white beaches, the famous Oistins Fish Fry on Friday nights, and its friendly vibe where you'll find locals (called Bajans) and tourists alike.
The St. Lawrence Gap ("gap" means "street") is the area on the south coast that is a favorite destination for both locals and tourists. Lots of quaint small businesses, delicious restaurants, colorful shops, and more—all within walking distance of your condo. A car is not necessary; a taxi to and from the airport is likely all you’ll need.
Known as "The Jewel of the Caribbean," Barbados has more repeat visitors than any of the Caribbean islands and, according to the Caribbean Tourism Organisation (CTO), 34% of all arrivals to Barbados are repeat visitors. It's easy to see why: The climate averages ideal temperatures in the winter of 75-82 degrees Fahrenheit and in summer a warmer but still lovely 88-92. Gentle trade-winds from the sea keep us cool and we rarely turn on the air-conditioning, although it's available throughout our unit. People are friendly, the sea is crystal clear, and the rum fantastic.
