About the property

Lovely 2 bedroom condo across from beach

Welcome to Barbados!

I offer short-term (7 days) rentals and well as long-term rentals for those who want to be close enough to the action when it suits them, but far enough away to get some peace and quiet when they want to relax. The unit is fully equipped. There is air conditioning in each of the bedrooms and satellite TV in the living room. WIFI is also included.

The condo is directly across the street from a small beach. There is a store located a stones throw away, in case you run out of necessities, including wine, beer and rum! And you might spot a monkey or two in the trees or along the walls on our street, so have your camera ready!!!

About Dave

My name is Dave. I fell in love with the beautiful island of Barbados when I first visited with my father many years ago. My father was born and raised in Barbados and immigrated to Canada. He married my mother and the rest is is until I visited. I realized that this island if a part of me, a very big part of who I am. After years of visiting I decided to invest in the island and bought this condo. I named it Tappin's Island Condo as an homage to my family name and heritage.

Why Dave chose Saint Lawrence Gap

The only way for people to learn about this beautiful island is to come and visit and live as a local. You get to experience the heartwarming atmosphere, the beauty of the island, and the lovely people of the island. You are close to restaurants, various beaches, and lets not forget, the famous Oistins Fish Fry. If you like to surf, and paddle board, we have that too.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Dave. I just wanted to Thank you for letting us holiday in your beautiful condo. Everything worked out perfect for us. It is in a great location. As a family of four we were very comfortable. I did wash all the beach towels we used before we left and I washed majority of the bath towels also. Patrick was very helpful as well. We hope to stay there again. The wifi worked perfect for us as well. Thanks again. Jen

A spacious, well appointed apartment in a quiet location with easy access to beaches and buses.

  • 5 of 5

A lovely comfortable homely apartment with a well equipped kitchen, a balcony, beach chairs and towels. About 20 minutes from the airport and Dave arranged transport for us. In a quiet location but close to bus stops and in walking distance of Oistins and St Lawrence Gap. A good pub and Chinese restaurant only 5 minutes walk away and small supermarket 3 minutes walk. There is a small beach opposite and another beach which can be accessed through the hotel over the road. There is also a nice pool and jacuzzi.

There are plenty of beautiful beaches nearby including ones with turtles. Not far on the bus to Bridgetown. A lovely apartment in a good area and I would definitely go back.

Thanks Dave!!

  • 5 of 5

Tappins condo is a well situated condo in a complex on the southern coast - Maxwell Beach Area in Christ Church. It is between Oistens & St Lawrence Gap with restaurants and bars within walking distance.

We loved the condo as it had everything we could possibly need for the stay. Just bring your clothes & toiletries.

Dave the owner was available before and during our stay by email and answered very quickly each time. His agent Patrick met us there when we arrived and showed us everything and was available by text anytime we needed him and fortunately we only needed to text twice during our 18 day stay.

Thank you Dave we hope to rent your condo next time.

Everything about the stay was enjoyable for my friends and I. The place is so inviting makes you feel like you are at home there was nothing that we wanted. The photos also do the condo no justice at all it was nicer than we expected. Dave was very accommodating & greatly appreciated. Will definitely be back!

Within a 25 minute walk to Oistins, St. Lawerence Gap & Miami Beach. The sea breeze was incredible, condo fully stocked with everything you might need. Pool was chilly but the kids enjoyed it. Beach was fantastic. Bring bug spray & sunscreen!! Enjoyed the 2 weeks we spent at the condo & didn't want to come home!!

Comfortable and Convenient

  • 5 of 5

Great place to spend some time at in Barbados, well equipped and comfortable, great location with small beach across the road and access to the beach club.Short walk to taxis and/or buses. Patrick, the local contact is amazing and very helpful. The owner Dave was very accommodating and great to deal with, we did have to change some dates during booking and he worked it all out to meet our needs. would definitely recommend this place for either a couple, family of 4 or two couples to enjoy while in Barbados.

Gunstig gelegen , inventaris compleet, smaakvolle inrichting

  • 5 of 5

Ligging is centraal. Klein strandje tegenover het appartement. Binnen 15 minuten loopafstand is Turkebeach en Doverbeach gied bereikbaar. Met de bus voor 2 Bbd naar Brownsbeach -Carlisebay is ook een aanrader, snorkelen, scheepswrakken en schildpadden. De grote supermarkt bij Oistins is op 15 minuten loopafstand en een kleine, duurdere, supermarkt is om de hoek.

's Avonds naar Oistins of doverbeach om lekker te eten is leuk in te doen.

Het ontvangst door Patrick was zeer hartelijk, goede uitleg en hij was zeer behulpzaam om onze vragen te beantwoorden. Roselin heeft halverwege onze vakantie nog de appartement schoongemaakt en de bedden verschoond. Het appartement is modern en met smaak ingericht, van alle gemakken voorzien, je kunt het zo gek niet bedenken of het is er wel. Terecht dat de eigenaar verzorkt om zorgvuldig met alles in te gaan alsof het he eigen woning is. Goede bedden, wasmachine en droger aanwezig, alsmede handdoeken en badlakens.

Een ruim appartement op een geweldig eiland waar we heel graag nog een keer onze vakantie zouden willen vieren.

David, bedankt dat we van jouw mooie appartement hebben kunnen huren en we terug kunnen kijken op een geweldige vakantie. Groeten uit Nederland van Frank, Karin en Siebe
