Gatehouse is an impressive and unique property containing three different upstairs and downstairs sections. Tower is a stylish and very spacious one bedroom apartment. Seaview and Coconut are studios with small kitchens and a bathroom. All three units can be combined with each other so that the Gatehouse can be used as either a one-, two- or three-bedroom house. Each unit has it's own terrace offering splendid views of the ocean.
The Tower unit has a secluded patio and a wooden deck with ocean views. The roof terrace not only has unobstructed views but might also serve it's guests as a secluded sunbathing area with undisturbed privacy.

Windsurfing: The spot to windsurf in Barbados is the area of Silver Sands, where the conditions are challenging yet forgiving and where circumstances are unbelievably convenient - and Inchcape is located right on the edge of Silver Sands beach.
You only rig up once and store your equipment just a few steps from the water. Shower, shade, relaxation area, everything combined right at your house, right on the spot, which is so unique. We have made it possible for you to enjoy this luxury windsurfing experience at our gorgeous vacation home, Inchcape in Silver Sands, on the Caribbean island of Barbados.
Sounds to good to be true?!? May be it does, but this dream will come true for you when you decide to come and stay with the people who discovered Silver Sands as a world class wave windsurfing spot. In 1978 Rosi and Wolfgang, your hosts at Inchcape, were the first people to ever sail at Silver Sands' reef formations.
Kitesurfng: Jim Drake, one of the inventors of windsurfing in the '70s, had already experimented with a wing, shaped like a hangglider, in the early stages of windsurfing... Time has gone by and the wing has become a kite which finally turned out to be an appropriate alternative for accelerating a surfboard using windpower.
Since kitesurfing really started taking off about two years ago, the still relatively small kitesurfing community learned quickly that special circumstances are needed to make kitesurfing a safe and enjoyable experience.
Barbados isn't only blessed with it's unique windsurfing conditions, it also proved to have some of the most ideal kitesurfing beaches possible. There are first of all the beaches around Inchcape, like Silver Sands and Silver Rock, which attract most of the kitesurfers. Brian Talma's Action Shop at Silver Rock is available for kitesufing lessons.
Surfing: When the world was created, Barbados was given an abundance of potential for becoming a surfer's paradise. The island's location far out in the Atlantic Ocean allows waves to travel thousands of kilometers on the bottom of the sea to finally unload all the power they developed during the long journey over Barbados' coral reefs.
As Barbados is a coral island, a coral reef stretches all around Barbados' coastline, providing for unlimited surfing conditions all over. No matter whether a swell approaches the island from a northerly or westerly direction or whether it's moving in from the East or the South, Barbados is guaranteed to have surf somewhere along it's shores at almost any given day of the year.
Also Inchcape is blessed with a surf break right in front of the property:
The shorebreak at Inchcape on the western end of Silver Sands beach is a pitchy shorebreak and can fit all sorts of descriptions, from mushy to super clean, it can be quite powerful or moderate and changes daily
We are the people who discovered Silver Sands for the sport of windsurfing. We were the first windsurfers in Silver Sands and made Silver Sands known as one of the best wave windsurfing spots in the world.
The Inchcape Seaside Villas are situated in a unique location, right on the water at the western end of Silver Sands Beach. Inchcape, as it presents itself today, developed from a plantation style property from 1920 and combines now the charm of the old with all modern amenities. Due to our location and proximity to the water we enjoy the best climate Barbados has to offer.
The houses have constantly been renovated and upgraded and Inchcape is recognized today as a unique and one of the most luxurious properties of such a kind in Barbados. Our beach is a beautiful and almost private beach, and has it all, from calm waters like on a pond to a small shore break at one end of the beach, which makes it the perfect beach paradise which suits a broad range of holiday makers. Silver Sands Beach can be for everybody, from the sport enthusiast to the one who just wants to relax and enjoy the beautiful turquoises waters of this pristine white sand beach.
Our beach, the almost perfect climate due to the gentle breezes of the trades and our proximity to the water, our strategically location, just a few minutes away from the Oistins fish market and shops and restaurants, and still being in pure nature just minutes away from everything one wants to be close to.

My wife and I spent 7 days at the Inchcape Seaside Villas. Our booking was a beautiful 2 story suite named "the tower" Absolutely breath taking ocean view from the deck where cocktail hour never seemed to end. Very clean villa with a very friendly staff ( shout out to Sonia). Private beach steps away with great surfing and sunning. We loved every day at Inchcape and are counting the snow filled days until our return.
Just got back from the incredible island of barbados. I had a very special time at the Inchcape for my holidays this year. I booked the Tower for 2 weeks and I gotta say it is very spacious and bright. The covered outside area provides a great space to watch the ocean and listen to the waves. The entire property is very well maintained by the lovely gardener Barton and reminds of nothing else than paradise. Will try and come back to bring my family next year!!!
Tower was quiet, well-appointed and very comfortable with great access to Silver Sands beach. Staff were helpful and pleasant and the grounds were kept beautifully. Kitchen and bath are brand new; the covered porch and rooftop provided great outdoor seating areas with views of the oceans. Would definitely recommend.
Wonderful location for those looking for a really private but action packed vacation. If your into watersports this is the place to be. Windsurfing, kiting, surfing all right outside the door. Nice walks and friendly locals, what more could you want. The cool breezes and gorgeous plantings make the Inch Cape experience such a relaxing and fun one. Well maintained and clean, we've been going here for over 20 years, and are returning next!
The tower apartment was just as described. Everything was good quality and worked correctly. The bed is exceptionally comfortable. The bedroom closes off nicely so the air conditioner can keep the room cool at night. The entire apartment is airy and not uncomfortable during the day. The porch is the nicest feature. Glimpses of the ocean and a perfect breeze.
It is recommended to hire a car as Woflgang has described. The property would be difficult to find on your own. It is only close to some small convenience stores and a few beach restaurants. The nearby beach is ok for taking a dip but a bit rough and rocky.
If you kite or wind surf this is a perfect location. The kite school is just down the beach.
We enjoyed our stay. Quiet and relaxing.
We stayed two weeks at the Inchcape Seaside Villas in the Tower Apartment and the location of the Inchcape Seaside Villas right on the beach was fantastic. The buildings have character and the room’s decor was lovely – a nice mix of modern and traditional, yet comfortable and welcoming. This is a truly beautiful property. Service and staff would be hard to top.

Golf: To stay at Inchcape and enjoying the privilege of being able to play a round of Golf at Royal Westmoreland, aren't those reasons enough to try Barbados for a golf vacation?
Barbados has excellent 18-hole championship golf courses. Sandy Lane with two Tom Fazio designed courses will rank amongst the finest golf resorts in the world. The elegance and beauty of the course of Royal Westmoreland golf course, one of the best of Robert Trent Jones jr.'s designs, is outstanding and if there is one course to play in Barbados, it's definitely the one of Royal Westmoreland. The Barbados Golf and Country Club at Durants near Oistins and Silver Sands along with the 18-hole signature course at Apes Hill round up the picture of Barbados as a world class quality golf destination and makes the island a serious contender for being the No.1 Golf destination in the Caribbean.
