Overview

St. Peter Apartment Rental Photos and Description

2 AC bedroom apartment to sleep 4-6, Barbados, exclusive West Coast

This beachfront-apartment is situated on the exclusive West Coast of Barbados. The spacious and well fit out accommodation harmoniously blends contemporary amenities with some antique mahogany furniture: An ideal place to unwind in Caribbean atmosphere, a romantic getaway for couples, but also well suited for a family holiday.

The condominium is separated from the beach by a small road with local traffic only.

Ground floor:

(i) large modern Italian kitchen where 4-6 can dine;

(ii) small bedroom with two twin beds, AC and ceiling fan;

(iii) small patio (ideal for breakfast for two), flowers, external shower.

Upper floor:

(i) pleasant bedroom with queen size bed, AC+ceiling fan;

(ii) modern en suite bathroom, with a second access to the

(iii) living room with its comfortable seating for up to 8 persons, sofa-bed, WiFi, Smart TV, DVD, radio, music dock (apple, bluetooth & cable connect), book shelves, ceiling fan.

The unhurried, relaxing atmosphere continues to the

(iv) covered, large balcony, fitted with a large sun shade, two sun-loungers, and a table with four chairs. The balcony is ideal for dining al fresco.

From the balcony of the apartment you have a direct view of the azure Caribbean sea looking southwest and northwest. In between is a small house, that obstructs only a small part of the view.

Beaches: North of Speightstown you have a long stretch of beaches. Just over the road from the apartment is a sandy beach with two palm trees and a large bush giving good shade. In just 5 minutes walking distance to the north along the coast you reach the long Heywoods beach (with many trees providing shadow), stretching from the Almond Beach Resort to the famous beach in front of Port St. Charles. South of Speightstown is the well known Mullins Beach and many others further to the south. We love not only Heywoods beach but also the beach south of the Lone Star Hotel (excellent but expensive dining) with access from the Adventist church. The Folkestone Park in Holetown is another beach with shadow and good snorkeling in the reef.

Please remember: All beaches are open to the public and access is a right for everybody. Properties which front onto a beach own the land to the high-water mark only. So you can stroll and relax along the beach even in front of very expensive hotels. We provide for our guests a large and a small sun umbrella, two foldable beach loungers, different small beach chairs, beach towels.

Golf courses: Famous golf courses are in easy driving distance (Royal Westmoreland, Sandy Lane), but there are many other ones.

Visits: see North Point (Flower Cave) and the Scotland District with Bathsheba on the East Coast, offering breathtaking views of the ocean. Drive southwards to the Barbadian heritage Codrington College. Harrison's Cave in the center of the island is an amazing gallery of stalactites and stalagmites. See Orchid World, or Wildlife Preserve, and many other touristic spots.

Visit also the 300-year-old Sunbury Plantation House, the only Great House on Barbados where all the rooms are open for viewing. This house features mahogany antiques, old prints and a unique collection of horse-drawn carriages.

If you like winery tours, you will enjoy a rum tour at the Mount Gay rum distillery in Bridgetown, where you learn how rum is made from sugar cane and you can shop the probably best rum of Barbados at a good price. Visit also the Sugar Museum, just off Highway 2A, an exhibition of how sugar was produced in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. The Portvale Sugar Factory nearby seems to be only slightly younger.....

VISIT BARBADOS DURING THE FIRST WEEK IN AUGUST, THE PEAK OF THE CROP OVER FESTIVAL.

Eating, drinking, and related enjoyments: The ''La Bouche" restaurant, and "Fisherman´s Pub" are just 5 min walking south of the apartment and offer good and fairly priced food or a pleasant drink. Very good is the "Orange Street Grocer", situated next to La Bouche (lunch; dinner only on Friday evening), and the Lobster Pot (higher priced) as well as the excellent "Juma´s" restaurant in the centre of Speightstown, and next to it "L`Attitude" beach bar and grill. Last not least, good and very affordable, the "Island Plates" restaurant on the eastern side of the Market Place (opposite Jordan`s supermarket). Of course there are different Take Aways in town.

Higher priced restaurants with a very pleasant atmosphere are the "Fish Pot", on the sea, 2 km north of the apartment, and the "Lone Star" Restaurant in direction of Holetown. Very good is also the restaurant/bar "Zaccios" in Holetown. BA says, its the third best beach bar in the whole world ....

In Bathsheba: the recommended "Round House", and the new "Atlantis" hotel and restaurant.

You should visit the capital Bridgetown and sip a cocktail or dine at the "Waterfront Cafe" (yacht harbor near old bridge). After this go Shopping in the nearby area on the other side of the harbor (High Street, Broad Street, Cheapside and side streets).

Each Friday and Saturday night hundreds of locals and visitors go to Oistins for the Fish-Fry, an opportunity to enjoy the best local food - fried and grilled fish, fish cakes, sweet potato, and much more. Be early to find a parking place.

Farm fresh produce is sold every day on the streets of Speightstown. Before buying there, inform yourself about the normal prices asked in the supermarkets. An interesting place to visit on Saturday morning is the "Brighton Farmers Market" at Brighton Plantation, tel. 429 2639, in the St George Valley. Run by owners Michael and Alison Pile on their 17th century plantation, it has become an extremely popular social outing for families. A children’s play area has been added, along with a large number of picnic tables on the lawns and a café area serving freshly brewed coffee. Stalls are normally up and ready to go by 6am (open until about 10 am) and offer a wide range of homemade produce from bread and cakes to Thai spring rolls, pickles and chutneys, meat pies, sweets and jams, plus local artwork, jewelry and handicrafts.

About Maria or Thilo

The owners Maria and Thilo are both university professors of geology, traveling a lot. We were looking for a safe harbor in an area not overcrowded by tourists and found it in Speightstown.

Maria or Thilo purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Maria or Thilo chose St. Peter

We stayed many years in Barbados and preferred always the west coast as compared to the much more crowded south, where the ocean waves are often high. Our property is facing the beach of the so called 'platinum coast', the area has some tourism but is not at all overcrowded by tourists. Expensive properties like Port St. Charles are in walking distance.

What makes this apartment unique

An ideal place to unwind in real Caribbean atmosphere, a romantic getaway for couples, but also well suited for a family holiday. The apartment is quite large and well equipped with modern and some antique mahogany furniture. The kitchen is well stocked with electric eqipment and everything else you might need.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Your apartment was very nice, and Sonja was wonderful. So helpful, and making sure everything is fine. Please extend our thanks and regards to her.

We bought and ate a lot of fish. So fresh and affordable. Also rotis, the pea filled type, and pork hocks’ stew (in a blackish sauce) at the FISHERMAN PUB that was great. The crop over steel pan festival at Brandon Beach was a once in a lifetime thrill.

What A Wonderful Place

  • 5 of 5

We spent 5 nights and loved our stay. We rented a car for our time there so that we would be able to see the whole island and it was nice getting to come back to this place and not a small hotel bedroom. The place was perfect for the whole family, all 4 of us with two young girls (4 and 6). So much room that we were able to have our space and not feel like we were all right up on each other whenever we were in the rooms. The location was very good also (easy to find), right next to a beautiful beach, with hardly anyone there at the beach it felt like a private beach for us. The swimming at the place was great, just go out the front and a little to the right, and we were able to see so many different types of fish, an eel and several star fish.

As for the apartment, it was everything that was described in the listing and the owners were very helpful and supplied a large amount of info about the island and the different restaurants and everything else we might need to make the most of our trip. One thing that anybody going to this island needs to do, is take the catamaran cruise, they will pick you up and drop you off at this place and you will have an amazing day. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone.

Owner's Response: We thank our guests for the very positive review. Unfortunately, they could stay only five days, there is more to explore on the island, perhaps at another stay. Many of our guests return, which makes us proud.

Barbados, nice vacation

  • 4 of 5

The property is very nice, perfect for 2 to 4 persons. The apartment is very close to a nice beach and is well furnished with beach equipment. We found everything we need to cook. The women who took care of us what very nice and helpful. The living room and the terrace on the 2nd floor are really interesting. A few things need to be upgraded: too long to have hot water in the kitchen sink and could be good to have climatisation in the living room as well as in the kitchen. We understand that in the islands there is often very little ants (not sure of the proper word) who like sweets that could live on the kitchen counter. If something could be done to aleviate these, that would be great. I would definately recommend this apartment to friends and relatives.

Owner's Response: We thank Paul for his generally very good review and appreciate his remarks. We are convinced, his stay was not to much affected by the few things he mentioned in his review. A few comments to the points of criticism. The boiler delivering warm water for the kitchen sink is in some distance, because it gives also water to the extra toilet. We have just renovated our bathroom and plan to also upgrade the warm water system in the near future. It works fine, it just takes a little time until the water arrives in the kitchen. In the bathroom the boiler is next to the shower. Air condition is in the two bedrooms, where most guests prefer to have it. To cool down also the living room and the kitchen is from an economic point of view not possible, because the doors are left usually open (e.g. patio, balcony) and the electricity costs in Barbados are horrendous. In every room there is a strong ventilator, and the constant trade winds provide additional climatisation. Last not least the not present AC in living room and kitchen is clearly mentioned on the website and it is also mirrored in our prices, which otherwise would be distinctly higher. Ants are very rarely in the kitchen; possibly they found some sweets left over on the counter. Paul should have simply applied some spray, the same used also against mosquitoes. Our caretaker Sonja could have helped him in this respect. The whole White Sands condominium is regularly disinfected by a company doing pest-control.

Apartment direkt am Meer

  • 4 of 5

Einen wunderschönen Urlaub verbrachten wir im Apartment Coral Sands. Es war unser 2. Aufenthalt auf Barbados in den Ort Speightstown aber das 1. Mal in diesen Apartment. Wir waren begeistert von der Lage der Unterkunft am Ortsende, dadurch alles fußläufig in kurzer Zeit( Supermarkt, Busbahnhof, Restaurants) erreichbar und direkt am Meer. Wir konnten unser Hobby das Tauchen frönen, da die Tauchbasis von den Reefers and Wreckers nur 3min fußläufig entfernt war. Die Wohnung war super ausgestattet und wurde mehrmals die Woche von Sonja gereinigt, so das wir uns wohlfühlten. Die Verständigung mit dem Vermieter per E-Mail oder telefonisch sowie der Haushälterin Sonja vor Ort funktionierte ohne Probleme, jede meiner Fragen wurde umgehend beantwortet. Wenn nochmal Barbados, dann gerne wieder in dieser Ferienwohnung.

Ruhiges Apartment mit Wohlfühlcharakter

  • 4 of 5

Wir haben zwar nur 8 Tage auf Barbados verbracht, aber die Wahl für dieses Appartment war goldrichtig. Es geht über zwei Etagen und verfügt über alle Einrichtungen die man für einen annehmlichen Urlaub, etwas abseits der Touristenmassen, braucht. Der Strand ist nur 20 Meter entfernt. Weitere schöne Strände nur ca. 10 Gehminuten. Die Einkaufsmöglichkeiten und einige Restaurants befinden sich in Gehnähe. Die Haushälterin Sonja ist eine Perle und der Kontakt mit dem Vermieter lief immer perfekt und schnell(vor der Reise) Während des Aufenthalts wird man ja von Sonja umsorgt. Einen Mietwagen benötigt man nicht unbedingt, da in kurzer Entfernung ständig Busse über die Inseln fahren. Auch Taxis sind ausreichend vorhanden. Wir haben aber aus Zeitgründen dann trotzdem für 3 Tage ein Mietfahrzeug genommen, da wir nur 8 Tage Zeit hatten und die abwechslungsreiche Insel zumindest größtenteils sehen wollten und da ist ein Auto dann doch bequemer und etwas schneller. Wir können einen Urlaub auf Barbados und speziell in Speightstown im White Sands absolut empfehlen.

Great!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Coral Sand and we had a great time again, enjoying the apartment facilities, the views, the beach and the weather! The new shower is a lovely addition and the caretaker looked after us very well. It's the perfect place for relaxing in comfort next to the beach and we'll be visiting again in 2016 if our budget allows!

The Coral Sands beachfront apartment is situated on the exclusive West Coast of Barbados, overlooking the white, sandy beach, where you can swim, snorkel or dive. It is situated at the northern end of the city centre of Speightstown, just 300 metres north of St. Peters church. You can walk in a few minutes to the historical centre of Speightstown ('Little Bristol'), a city protected for its cultural and historical value. You find banks, shops, supermarkets, pharmacies, restaurants and bars. During the week you observe the pulsating life of a small busy Caribbean town: colorfully dressed, friendly ladies sell local fresh fruit and vegetables, fishermen bring the catch of the day to the fish market and you hear reggae music from cars or during festivals at Speightstown Esplanade.

The beautiful rugged East Coast, famous among surfers, with its breathtaking views, is only a few kilometers away. White Sands is close to the golf courses of Royal Westmoreland (10 minutes by car), Sandy Lane (20 minutes) and others. Pulsating touristic Holetown is only 15 min away. This gives you the best of two worlds: a quiet haven on the edge of where it is all happening.
