Crop Over: Crop Over, a five-week summer festival, is Barbados' most popular and colourful festival. It's origins can be traced back to the 1780's, a time when Barbados was the world's largest producer of sugar. At the end of the sugar season, there was always a huge celebration to mark the culmination of another successful sugar cane harvest - the Crop Over celebration. As the sugar industry in Barbados declined, so too did the Crop Over festival and in the 1940's the festival was terminated completely. However, the festival was revived in 1974 and other elements of Barbadian culture were infused to make the extravaganza that exists today ..... an event that attracts thousands of people from across the globe.
Jazz Festival: The Premiere Jazz Festival of The Caribbean The Barbados Jazz Festival, which celebrates the best in international and local jazz talent, has become a major annual Caribbean event. The venues for the festival also reflect the diverse nature of the festival. The modern Sir Garfield Sobers gymnasium suits a large crowd. The open air Farley Hill National Park is ideal for a day of picnicking and jazz. The lovely Sunbury Plantation House is over 300 years old and steeped in history.
Thoroughbred Horse Racing: The racetrack in Barbados is at the Garrison Savannah which is less than two miles outside the capital Bridgetown. It has been the home of horse racing since the colonial days of 1845. The officers of the British Regiment who were stationed in Barbados, used what was then the parade ground to match their horses in races and the wealthy merchants and planters later joined them. The Barbados Turf Club, which regulates and promotes horse racing in Barbados, was established in 1905 and organizes three (3) seasons of racing per year. These meetings run from January to April; May to August and from October to December. The track is a 6 furlongs oval grass strip and races are run at distances of 5 furlongs (1000 meters); 5½ furlongs (1100 meters); 7.8 furlongs (1570 meters); 9 furlongs (1800 meters) and 10 furlongs (2000 meters), with the horses running in a clockwise (right handed) direction.
it was just perfect. Super equipped, clean, and great tips to Barbados
Our 8 day stay at Doris's townhouse during CropOver was nothing but amazing! We absolutely loved the atmosphere and decor of her townhouse! It was very clean, modern and convenient as Doris provides you with more than enough appliances in the kitchen, bath and beach towels. There were even beach toys, games, dvds and plenty of reading books to enjoy. Brian was more than helpful and easy to reach , especially when the half bath downstairs began to leak. He came in, cleaned up and had the problem fixed the very next morning. It was in an ideal location as it was about a 20-25 min walk to the beach, supermarkets and food or a just a 10 min drive. Each of the 3 bathrooms were very clean and modern with great water pressure and hot water ... and the air conditioners were awesome as it was extremely hot! Thanks so much for having us. We'll definitely be back :)
We really enjoyed our 10 day stay in your townhouse. It was very conveniently located to the beach, shopping, and nearby family, but still on a quiet street so my two little children could sleep in peace. The home had everything I could ask for in a rental and then some -- plenty of pots, pans, dishes, towels, pool chairs, and a pack & play and high chair for my baby -- wonderful! Doris (and Brian on site) were great to work with - every interaction was a breeze!
Hi Doris - we had a wonderful week with the kids!! I enjoy cooking so it was great that the kitchen was so very well equipped. I really appreciated that!! We all enjoyed the spaciousness of the unit, given that we had 3 adults and 2 children. We all enjoyed the pool, but also I really do love the south coast. We were on Accra beach every single day!! It was a terrific week, weather-wise too. I would definitely come back - and would especially look forward to some time there when the road construction is finished...!! Having said that, the crew were very accommodating and found ways to let us pass without much delay at all - very courteous. I bought a little something for the flip-flop room...couldn't resist!!
Perfect place with a good energy for a nice and calm vacation! Its like home!
@ Doris, I like the surfer room with the nice decoration!!!!
We really enjoyed our stay at Springcourt. It is a lovely property---spotless, roomy, and well maintained. Although we did not meet Doris, the owner, she was wonderful to work with online and Brian was great on location.
The property is well located, quiet and away from the busy, high traffic areas. At the same time, the lovely beach and some great restaurants are only a 5 minute drive or a short walk away. With the lovely pool and all the comforts of home in the accommodation, there really isn't even a need to leave. But, I wouldn't miss the Friday Night Oistin Fish Fry or Wednesday lunch buffet at Crystal Beach.
The property is centrally located yet situated at the end of a cul-de-sac in a quiet residential neighbourhood adjacent to Rockley Golf & Country Club. Accra Beach and Crystal Waters are just one and two miles away. Vibrant St. Lawrence Gap, the heart of the island's night-life with many clubs, bars, and rum shops is 4 miles away. The wide choice of restaurants range from moderately priced to upscale and sure to please all tastes. The bustling capitol of Bridgetown, Grantley Adams Int'l Airport, Oistins for fish fry and the Sheraton Mall with multiplex cinema are all within an 8-miles radius. Supermarkets and banking are nearby as well as a post office and 24hr service station. One supermarket has a shuttle service free-of-charge. A car is recommended but not essential as there are plenty of taxis and buses (#9 & #11) operating nearby. Arrangements can be made so that a rental car will be waiting for you at the apartment along with a breakfast starter package for your first morning.
