About the property

Penthouse on 2 levels: 3 bedrooms each with private balcony + en suite bathroom

Welcome to the Sea Turtle Penthouse at Glitter Bay Estates; the premium destination for comfortable rental living on Barbados' spectacular West coast.

We are situated on the most scenic and quiet beach of the famous West Coast, where the endangered Sea Turtles safely lay their nests. We are next door to many private mansions and the Fairmont Royal Pavilion Hotel. You can leisurely stroll for miles along the beach and within minutes you will find the Folkstone Wildlife preserve for amazing snorkeling, shopping in Holetown, and many other hotels where you can dine such as the famous Lone Star Restaurant and Hotel.

The Glitter Bay property is more than a simple condominium, as it was for many years part of the first class Fairmont Hotel: you will enjoy the amenities of a full service resort within a gated community, including concierge service, maid service with in suite laundry facilities, and the excellent beach bar offering refreshing drinks, a light lunch, or a sun-down rum punch!

The architecture reveals a definite Spanish influence, with whitewashed walls and terra cotta roofs. All of the balconies face South West with an excellent view of the grounds, the sunset and our own family of Green Monkeys! The Sea Turtle Penthouse has an excellent view of the sea. Glitter Bay is the only property in Barbados where the footprint of the buildings is only a small portion of the beautifully manicured grounds. This can clearly be seen on Google Earth (13º 12' 02" N, 59º 38' 29" W).

The Glitter Bay Estates Sea Turtle Penthouse is a 2200 sq.feet penthouse on 2 levels, with 3 bedrooms each with their own private balcony and en suite bathroom. There is a full kitchen, large living room, and large dining table for 8 people on the main balcony. It is fully refurbished to hotel standard. It can also be rented as a 2 bedroom penthouse (please inquire about rates).

Daily maid service (except Sundays)

About Sea Turtle Penthouse -

We are a family from Montreal, Canada who used to own a condo in Florida UNTIL we tried Barbados. We simply fell in love with the island and its wonderful people.

Ironically, our first stay in Barbados was at Glitter Bay when it was run as a hotel. We tried other Caribbean venues, but always came back here.

When Fairmont decided to sell the property in 2005, we were lucky enough to be here at Glitter Bay and were able to secure the only Penthouse available!

Glitter Bay is now our 'feel good' place, and we stay here at least 8 weeks every year

Sea Turtle Penthouse - purchased this condo in 2005
