|Minimum Stay||3 - 7 nights|
Seaspray House offers two (2) apartments for rent with private entrances, private patios, and private entrance to Beach and Sea. The view from both patios overlooks the Caribbean Sea. You can hear the relaxing sound of the waves day and night. The sea breeze is cooling and the view is as good as it gets!
The kitchens are fully fitted with all appliances and the living and dining area is very comfortable and stylish. The bedrooms are air conditioned and there are ceiling fans throughout. Maid service is weekly (extra can be arranged if required). Other domestic services can be arranged (for example: a cook, driver, masseuse, or child care services).
Seaspray is just a few minutes walk from the renowned 'Fish Pot Restaurant' which is open for ocean front breakfast, lunch and fine dining at dinner.
If you want to experience a taste of local fanfare, take a 5 minute walk to 'Moontown' where you will find some great local food, comraderie and convenience store.
History: Seaspray House is owned by Les Conley Warner. The property was hand built by his parents, Joseph and Daphne, in the early 1950's. During the 1960's The United States of America had a Naval Base station in Barbados. The Navel Commander and personnel from the Base rented Seaspray House for several years during that time.
A decision was made to refurbish the house into villas in 2005.
If you want real oceanfront, look no further. The view is spectacular from the balcony. Its a Jaw-Dropper the first time you see it. You can always hear the ocean waves coming into the shore. The small sandy beach is virtually your own, as it is protected by coral rock both sides and a larger beach is a short walk south (Bring your snorkel gear). Villa is well-equipped, clean, modern and was spacious enough for the four of us. We were very comfortable at Seaspray; we believe it is very good value for money. The bus stops nearly right outside, but a car will come in very handy as the Villa is set in a small village location. Definitely not the St. Lawrence Gap. Moontown is a short walk and the supermarket there sells nearly everything you could need. Mertons is a must-do for the fish fry - Oceanfront dining on a budget, but the BBQ fish is fabulous. The Fish-Pot restaurant is close by (you could walk it but we chose to drive) and very good. The owner of Seaspray was very welcoming and attentive. We would go back again, for sure.
My partner and my 2 teenage boys, age 16 and 17 arrived for a 2 week holiday in the upper level. We were met by the lovely Manager, who showed us round and answered any questions we had, he was very courteous and helpful. The first thing that hits you when you walk into the villa is the truly outstanding view. You are right on the beach, it is not called Sea Spray for nothing, the only sound you could hear at night was the waves lashing against the property below.
The villa has everything you need, including excellent wi-fi. We stopped off on our way to the villa to purchase essentials, we really didn't need to as the little shop in Moontown, 100 metres away, called St Elmo's had everything we needed and more, you can also purchase hot food take away from here. I would recommend one big shop then just topping up at this store as it really is very competitively priced. Only thing it lacked was fresh meat so you could purchase enough of this on your one big shop, freeze it and manage just with a top up at the local store. St Elmo's also has the local bar opposite which had entertainment Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday evenings, Karaoke on a Friday and Sunday with limbo dancing. There is also a restaurant next door to this bar which has quite a reputation for its Fish Fry on a Friday evening.
We would normally hire a car but as we were so well located for public transport we didn't bother. The buses stop just outside the villa and will take you for $2, all the way down to Bridgetown, going through Speightstown and Holetown and passing all the lovely beaches on the way. We got on the yellow Regge, Regge bus, so called because it plays Regge music on your journey. We found the bus such fun and got to chat to many locals whilst travelling.
The villa itself is just as described, nicely furnished with a very homely feel. Guests were in the villa below us for our 1st week but privacy was not an issue, we didn't even notice anyone was there. You can go down the steps at the side of the property and you are straight into the sea, fantastic for snorkelling. About 50 metres away from the property is a lovely little beach, we had sole use of this beach while we were there. You could walk along this beach to the Fish Pot Restaurant, we sat on the seat at the end of their jetty and watched the most amazing sun sets.
This really is a beautiful un-spoilt place to spend a Caribbean holiday, we intend to return.
Upon our arrival at the lower level, the stunning view of the ocean, the abundant vegetation and the coziness of the patio combined to provide an overwhelming sense of relaxation. We had spent the previous weeks on the busy south coast, and we immediately felt any remaining tension dissolve completely.
The property is clean, it is well furnished and it lives up to its description. Linda the owner was very attentive, contacting us by email and phone to make certain that our stay was enjoyable.
We very much enjoyed the snorkelling, accessing the water via the private stairway: we kept going back to the beautiful coral reefs that were teaming with tropical fish, with occasional sightings of turtles.
Although the owners recommend a car, we managed fine by taxi, bus and by foot: the nearby grocery and bar are 5 minutes away by foot, and the excellent Fish Pot restaurant is a ten minute walk. Buses are cheap and frequent, providing an unexpected reggae experience. And the locals are warm and welcoming: Barbados is indeed a paradise.
We very much recommend this property, and are looking forward to returning next year.
We recently returned from a wonderful stay at the Sea Spray Villa. We were two couples and we rented the upstairs unit. This Villa lives up to all of the pictures and positive reviews. It is beautifully finished and fully equipped with a full variety of glassware, utensils, cooking equipment etc. Everything is of very good quality. There is also a big screen TV and satellite. With the front door open and the French doors to the balcony open, a smooth Caribbean breeze fills the unit.
The location is ideal for travellers who do not want to stay in the heart of the ‘hotel district.’ No early morning attempts to secure a chair in the sun for the day are required..! The villa is very secure and private, yet only a 2 minute walk from local amenities.
The snorkelling right in front of the Villa is as good as anywhere on the island. Entering the ocean from your own private beach is an added bonus. We did also enjoy swimming with the Turtles from the beach behind the Lone Star.
We arranged a rental car through Tricia, who was very helpful. The car was delivered to the Villa and all the paperwork was completed there. For 7 days we explored the entire island hitting most of the recommended attractions, and some that were not on the map. The views from the Animal Flower Cave, Cherry Tree Hill and Bathsheba are breathtaking.
The owners, Les and Linda were very generous with their time and patience. They were in contact with us throughout our vacation to ensure that everything was as expected and available for any questions that we may have. They also arranged for our airport pick up. Our driver, Valdez, was very professional and informative.
Thank you so much Les and Linda for making our first trip to Barbados so memorable. When we plan our return trip we will be contacting you again…!
Myself and my husband had a fantastic time at seaspray and were overwhelmed by the hospitality and thoughtfulness of Linda and Les the owners who made sure by getting in touch very regularly that everything was going well. The position of the villa for us could not have been better, the view especially-near enough to enjoy wonderful restuarants and sophisticated cuisine and shopping but not too "touristy" and it was situated near local amenities and wonderful people. Barbadian people are so friendly-please make sure to visit the local bar and supermarket which we enjoyed very much-they even put our Swansea football premier league match on for my husband to watch! Please be careful not to step on any spiny sea urchins though, I encountered one on Heywoods beach and it was painful! The villa has wonderful views and is well equipped. Our son stayed for one week with us and he enjoyed it very much. We saw a green parrot, monkeys and even a sea eagle catching a fish from the balcony-we hope to return and see them again. Thank you for a lovely time.
We had a great time at the villa and enjoyed the surrounding beaches and attractions. The house was well furnished and comfortable. The small sand area at the base of the stairs (perhaps 10 steps) was an easy into the water most of the time. In January (and we have seen this all over the Caribbean) the ocean is a little rougher than late spring (which is considerably calmer) so there were times when the waves were crashing a little to heavy to safely enter there but the one minute walk to either Smittons (to the right out the door) or Half Moon Fort beach (to the left) were available. We snorkled just about all the beaches down the west coast during our two week stay and saw turtles at Smittons and Carlisle but no where else. However, the snorkling was good in more or lesser degrees on all the beaches and some had very interesting underwater topography. Shopping was very easy and while we stopped at SuperCenter on the way to the house, we felt Jordan's had everything we needed and shopped there the rest of the time. We enjoyed sitting on the balcony each evening (we had the upper level) and watching the boats. We like to be in the more family areas of an island and having beaches to ourselves rather than in the hotel areas so this place was great for us. There are large number of fish available just at the house beach and you can often see them from the balcony. The dog that others mention does do his barking but was not a problem for us, however, visitors should be aware that this property is on the beach and therefore has considerable traffic in front of the house which is typical for beach homes on the more populated islands such as Barbados. The bus system is the best we have seen on any island (or any other place we have been) with busses available every few minutes it seemed (but also going by in front of the house!). All in all though, a very nice stay and the people of Barbados were extremely friendly and open to visitors. If you rent a car (as we did), have your phone GPS or GPS available because the road marking are few and far between!!
We arrived late as our flight was delayed in Toronto. Learning to drive on the left in the dark and rain was fun as we made our way up to Saint Lucy. Tricia was there waiting for us to check us in. She was so helpful and accommodating. She was available many times throughout our stay to help out with many helpful tips. She even put us in contact with a gentleman in the Barbados Yacht Club that ultimately helped us get on a sailboat for the Mount Gay Rum Round Barbados Regatta. THANK YOU TRICIA!!!
The condo is amazing and much like other reviews have pointed out, the owners contacted us several times to ensure our stay was going well. Nice touch! The waves crash below the condo making this an ideal getaway from city life. We didn't rent the bottom unit as we thought the upper unit had a better view. BOTH upstairs and down are nice places as we had the opportunity to see both before we left.
The stairs down to the beach were easy to navigate and are shared with neighbors Karl and Lisa. We met Karl and his friend Steve while they returned from a day of fishing. After a nice conversation, Karl invited us to watch the sunset with his wife Lisa right next door at Half Moon Fort. What an amazing Bajan couple! ENGAGE WITH LOCALS, YOU'LL BE AMAZED AT HOW THEY WELCOME YOU INTO THEIR LIVES! So nice!
Locally, just 1 minute walk up the road on the right is St. Elmos Sports bar and grocery store with local Bajan cuisine! Say Hi to Lucy for me! They also have Karaoke on the weekends. The bakery is amazing too although you might miss it if you didn't know it was on your left when entering the grocery store. Across the street is Merton's which has a fish fry Fridays and Saturdays. A far different experience than Oistens! More of a local feel to it than touristy. I highly recommend visiting these places. Also, be entertained by some of the most energetic domino players I have ever seen!
Yes, the neighbor has a dog that they leave outside and had barked occasionally at night. Give a shout at the dog to quiet him down. A shame the neighbor can't be a little more considerate of the dog and the people around him but sometimes that's just people isn't it? The noise was minimal and not anything more than I would expect living in a local neighborhood.
We would stay here again on when we return to Barbados.
Thank you Les and Linda!
