Overview

Christ Church Condo Rental Photos and Description

Fantastic sea views and easy beach access. 2 BR, 2BA, beautiful appointments

At this beautiful 2-bedroom, 2-floor condo in St. Lawrence Gap, arched columns frame dreamy Caribbean Sea views, and 1600 square feet of elegant indoor/outdoor living space create a spacious haven on the shores of Dover Beach.

The Sapphire Beach Condos complex, where the condo is located, is both within walking distance to the shops and restaurants of St. Lawrence Gap but also tucked away from the busy-ness of the Gap.

Families love this best-of-both worlds location. And the 2 swimming pools and wide, white sand beach don’t hurt, either :)

IT’S IN THE DETAILS

Inside the condo, high-end details create an exceptional place to stay—from luxury sheets and towels to rich wood furnishings and sophisticated fabrics in a palate of pale turquoise and sandy taupe.

In the striking modern kitchen outfitted with stainless steel appliances and granite countertops, you can whip up a quick meal or create a gourmet feast.

Both find a fitting setting at the open-air dining table on the patio facing the dynamic sea—the water here on the south shore of Barbados changes colors with nearly every hour of the day. The sunsets are particularly phenomenal, and you can enjoy a sunset dinner without even leaving your condo.

The two bedrooms at Sapphire Beach #117 each have their own attached baths (no fighting over the showers). Because there is one bedroom on each level—a king-sized master upstairs and two twin beds on the ground level—families with older kids find this to be a great setup for both shared family time and privacy.

The ground-level bedroom features a big patio door that opens to the pool and the beach for easy water access.

Even the bathrooms are beautiful. Because Sapphire Beach Condos are just a hair over 5-years old, everything sparkles like new.

ABOUT DOVER BEACH & ST. LAWRENCE GAP

Family-friendly Dover Beach provides endless options, from laid-back activities like sunbathing, beachcombing and long strolls along the water to active pursuits like stand-up paddling and boogie-boarding (the waves are a bit bigger and a bit more fun here on the south shore).

Meanwhile, surrounding St. Lawrence Gap (we call it, simply, “The Gap”) provides all kinds of goodies: fresh seafood, tropical cocktails, locally made souvenirs, live reggae music, and more.

Best of all, you won’t need a car, as all of this is within walking distance of your condo. The airport is just a $20 taxi ride (for 2; more for 4). Once you’ve arrived, most of the island’s hotspots and attractions are accessible via the low-cost bus service or handy taxis.

If you do decide to bring a car, however, you’ll find your very own parking spot just outside your condo on the ground floor.

Have questions about Sapphire Beach #117 or its surroundings? Don’t hesitate to contact me. I love helping people experience the very best of Barbados and the St. Lawrence Gap.

Or if you’re ready to book your trip right now, let me know when you’d like to come and we’ll put your name on the calendar.

All the best from Barbados,

Jane Shattuck

Jane is great to work with & Sapphire is super!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Sapphire in January and it's a great location. we were looking forward to returning to 117 having booked it with Jane when my husband took ill. Our deposit was returned immediately. Jane is very caring and I would always book through her. Sapphire is a great property and being on Dover Beach is a great benefit as well as being on St Lawrence Gap ant this end (east) which is close to everything but not crazy busy!. Hope to see you in 2017, Jane. #117 looks great!

Owner's Response: Aarrgh, sometimes life doesn't work out exactly according to plan, does it? But you took home some great memories of your stay here in January and I'm sure will be back when everyone is back on their feet! In the meantime, I'm keeping the rum punches on ice for you :) Cheers, Jane

The Perfect Place in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Barbados and we loved it! The temperature always ranged between 23C to 31C throughout the day/night. We never needed a sweater to go out in the evening and it didn’t get crazy hot during the day. There was the occasional time when it rained but it never lasted long and was still warm. We found the condo location in St. Lawrence Gap to be very convenient. It was easy walking distance to many restaurants and bars. There were also a couple of grocery/convenience stores within walking distance, but the selection and price of groceries was better at the larger grocery store (Super Centre?) which is a short taxi ride away on Rendezvous Hill. We did decide to rent a car after we had been there a few days. There was no shortage of taxis but we didn’t find the fares to be as low as we had expected, and we liked the freedom of having our own car to explore the island. (Driving on the left side of the road wasn’t as hard as we thought it would be either.) We truly loved this condo complex and especially this unit. The unit is perfectly located near the end of the quiet condo complex and is a two story unit giving easy access to the pool/beach area through the main floor patio as well as a gorgeous view of the beach/ocean with additional privacy from the 2nd floor balcony. It was lovely being located right on Dover Beach where we found the waves in the ocean to be slightly calmer than we experienced at other areas of the island. Thee BEST part of the unit is the queen bed in the 2nd floor bedroom which was SO COMFORTABLE (nicer than our bed at home)! There was a bit of street noise given that the 2nd floor bedroom is located on the island side of the unit, but it wasn’t a problem. (I wore earplugs, but my boyfriend didn’t need any.) Overall, the condo had everything we needed, was clean, and well maintained. Access to a bbq is on our wish list, but isn’t essential. We ate out a fair bit as well. There’s no shortage of fantastic restaurants in Barbados (i.e. The Cliff, Champers, The Tiki Bar). This review wouldn’t be complete without mentioning that booking the condo through Jane Shattuck was a great experience. Right from the initial reservations to asking questions during our trip, it was very easy to reach her and everyone we dealt with along the way was very professional and helpful. We highly recommend Jane and this unit to others. In fact, we’ve just finalized booking this unit for our 2nd trip to Barbados in Jan 2016.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your lovely review. I may have mentioned to you that of all the Caribbean islands, Barbados has the most repeat visitors. And you name several reasons why: great food, fabulous beaches, lovely people, and great accommodations. Barbados is a habit that no one wants to break! The island (and I) welcome you back in Jan '16. Until then, pick up a few swimsuits on sale this summer!! All the best .... xo Jane Shattuck

Great Easter Break 2015

  • 5 of 5

Dear Jane,

Your might have asked yourself what is wrong with these guys, no more emails // questions etc…. ;)

2 reasons for that:

Firstly, and most importantly, we have had a fantastic time – island, friendliness of people, your apartment, the weather ( even with a little more rain than usually ) – this was all top notch. And were really got soaked into it. On top of that our just-turned-6 son gave surfing a try, and believe it or not, he was riding some waves for 15 seconds plus standing on the board as if he’d never did anything else on day 2. You can image how proud we were!

So this, swimming at many different beaches + the nice pools, catamaran tour, jet ski, delicious early dinners at tides, tapas etc. - usually with a pretty sun downer – a glass of wine at the balcony later in the evening – this kept us pretty busy :-)

My wife, kids and I would like to send you a big THANK YOU. Your pre-travel help on logistics etc. were highly appreciated, the apartment was a lovely as advertised + hassle free and we really had a fantastic time!

Or in a nutshell, quoting our son straight after the touchdown back in London waking him up at 6:05am: “Daddy, can we take the next flight going back to Barbados ;)”

Thanks again, all the best, and hope we’ll get in touch with you for one of our future trips to the Caribbean!

Stephan

Fabulous vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Sapphire Beach condos far exceeded our expectations. Everything was perfect. We were greeted at the complex upon arrival and shown to our unit. We were given a tour of the unit and shown how to use everything. We had time to ask any questions we may have had and then we were off to start our vacation. The beach in front was incredible, one of the nicest we have ever seen. The water is so clear, and the sand so soft. You can bring the two loungers from the ground floor patio onto the beach if you want, or pay to rent the ones amply available on the beach (we paid $20/day for 4 loungers and 2 umbrellas).

There are plenty of choices for restaurants and nightlife all within short walking distance of the complex. Big Daddy's grilled chicken for lunch never disappointed.

We are already planning our next stay in Barbados and will for sure be staying at this same complex and the same unit.

Jane was very easy to deal with when reserving, and extremely helpful with tips for the area. Jane leaves a brochure at the unit to give you all the information you could ever need (rental car companies, restaurants, tours, things to do, etc...) We would never hesitate to rent from Jane again.

An A+ on this entire stay. Thanks for such a memorable vacation Jane!

Great accomodation, great location, great service

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful condo (#117) in a fabulous location - right on the beach on at the eastern end. Don't believe what you read about 'The Gap' being noisy, it couldn't be further from the truth - at least not in late October when we visited. The condo is so well appointed and has everything you need if you want to be self-sufficient, but also ideally placed for an array of places to eat, which range from great value street food to more traditional restaurants - even they have the same laid back vibe that you get all over the island. We did though lose the shorts and t-shirts and ventured further afield for a meal at Luna Cafe. Don’t be put off by the name, as a cafe it is not. Maybe not as high end as say The Cliff, but the food was exceptional and the prices were easier on the pocket!

As far as booking and communication is concerned, Jane is a dream, giving you all the information you need and relying to any email by return.

We'll be back in flash........

Owner's Response: DeLIGHTed you had a great holiday! And thanks for mentioning Cafe Luna, one of my favorite spots on the island to dine. You're right, it's not a cafe, but a high-end, very beautiful restaurant with scrumptious food. And you're so right about the street food ... it's fantastic, isn't it, and right down the Gap from your beachfront apartment. Happy travels and best wishes ... see you on the beach, Jane

Amazing!!

  • 5 of 5

Such an amazing return to the lovely island of Barbados. Thank you so much Jane & Monica for all your help. The condo is amazing. Very well maintained,location is perfect, and being foot steps from Dover Beach and a few minutes from the gap was a big plus. I wouldn't stay any where else for now on when returning to Barbados.

Located on beautiful Dover Beach, one of the island's premier south coast beaches, AND in the famous St Lawrence Gap. With outstanding Caribbean Sea views, #117 Sapphire Beach Condos offers spacious and luxurious accommodations and very easy access directly from the apartment to the beach and two beautiful freshwater pools. Ideal for families and couples and friends who want a getaway to a paradise island. Stroll to little shops and many restaurants.

Don't miss dining at our outstanding restaurants such as Pisces and Waterside (call ahead to get a seafront table) - a five-minute walk - or Harlequin and Cafe Sol, where people-watching is part of the fun.

A must-do in Barbados? Swim with our beautiful giant sea turtles! The catamaran companies will pick you up and take you to the best snorkeling spots on the island.

Of course, if you want a lazy holiday, #117 Sapphire Beach Condos is ideal. Just walk outside to beautiful white-sand Dover Beach where you'll find beach chairs with umbrellas and all type of beach activities on offer. Southern Palms restaurant is on the beach ... grab a casual lunch or dinner and on Sunday stop by to enjoy the steel pan band ... sure goes nicely with a Mount Gay rum punch!

Barbados is beautiful, safe, and diverse. With #117 Sapphire Beach Condos as your home away from home, you're in for a real treat of a holiday from which you'll take home wonderful memories.

Please let me know how I can help make your holiday just-right. There's nothing I love conversing about more than the beautiful island of Barbados and the beautiful beachfront accommodations I am able to offer travelers seeking a top-notch holiday at a reasonable price.

Warm regards from paradise,

Jane Shattuck
