Overview

Christ Church Condo Rental Photos and Description

Elegant Open Concept Apt With Ocean View, 3 Br, 3 Ba - Sleeps 6-8

The minute you walk into this condo, you will be drawn to the large balcony where you can admire the magnificent shades of blue ocean, feel the sea breeze and listen to the waves crashing on the beautiful white sand, just steps away. That is in essence the beauty of our vacation home and we feel that you deserve the best as vacation is where you build the best memories. We are offering you a luxury home designed with elegance and comfort in mind.

It is the perfect place for a family or small group of friends wanting to share a home vacation in a beautiful location. Our condo is located on the third floor and features an open plan living, dining, kitchen area, and leads to the balcony which overlooks the pools, beach and ocean beyond. The master bedroom has a king bed and an ensuite bathroom. It has direct access to the balcony, and is angled in such a way that you can lay on your bed and look straight out at the ocean view! The 2nd bedroom (red room) has a king bed and ensuite bathroom. The 3rd bedroom has twin beds that can be brought together to form a comfortable king size bed and is adjacent to the hallway bathroom. You have access to an elevator.

Sapphire beach properties have over 370 feet of pristine beach front which forms part of the sought after Dover Beach, renowned for its white sand and crystal clear turquoise waters. Located at the end of the St Lawrence Gap, you can easily walk to a great variety of restaurants, from Indian food, Chinese, Italian or Bajan. A couple of bars are within waling distance but far enough away so you won’t be bothered by them. Small grocery stores, banks, car rental, sports equipment rental and shopping is all within walking distance so many vacationers feel that they don’t need to rent a vehicle.

If you choose to discover the island and mingle with the locals there is a cheap and easy bus system that will allow you to learn more about this unique Caribbean island. You can also opt to book different tours and we can help you with that. Renting a car is also an option, but remember to take into account that Barbados used to be a British colony and they drive on the left. Taxis are also a good option and are cheap and plentiful.

With your safety being a priority, our property has 24hr security guards, monitored cameras throughout the site, monitored electric gate entrance, and an on-site private parking.

If you would like additional services such as babysitting, on-site massages, chef or grocery pre-stocking... let us know so that we can help you with your plans. Those services are offered at an extra cost.

Sapphire Beach is a short 15 minute drive from Grantley Adams International Airport (airport code BGI) while Bridgetown is a similar short drive .

Feel free to ask us questions, we will be happy to help you create an amazing vacation!

About Sylvie

My husband and I share a passion for travelling and photography and love to meet new people and share their culture.

As we are approaching retirement, we realized one of our dreams when we bought this beautiful home in Barbados where we can enjoy the sea breeze, daily swims in the ocean and embrace a different culture.

As we are planning to discover more of this beautiful world we will share our place in paradise with you when we are not using it and hope you will like it as much as we do.

Pour les gens qui parlent français, il me fera plaisir de communiquer avec vous et répondre à toutes vos questions en français.

Sylvie purchased this condo in 2013

Why Sylvie chose Christ Church

The year round good temperature, safety, hospitality of the Bajans and modern conditions of Barbados are some of the reasons we chose this small gem of the Caribbean.

Sapphire Beach condos are the newest and most sought after vacation homes in Barbados. Located on a magnificent beach with easy access to everything, this well designed luxurious condo has it all.

What makes this condo unique

We can invite friends and family and feel very safe and welcomed. Being in the south of Barbados, we can easily discover new beaches and mingle with the Bajans and feel like we're at home!

The layout was exactly how it was depicted in the pictures.

There were no surprises. It truly was a home away from home. From having access to the laundry room to arriving and having a care package for us. We definitely will have a repeat stay at Sapphire.

Clears and Spacious

  • 5 of 5

This was a magical trip. The condo was spacious and clean. The decor was perfect, the staff was professional and accommodating. The owner was attentive and kind. She left us a complementary starter kit of food and beverages in the fridge. She gave us a list of ideas for things to do in the area. I truly enjoyed my stay. This was a wonderful experience.

Beautiful views of the beach and ocean!

  • 5 of 5

This is an amazing condo with beautiful views of the beach and ocean. We rented all three rooms which were spacious and beds were very comfortable. Property management was friendly and very helpful and can arrange for many activities and a car rental. I highly recommend letting them acquire your car rental. This location is full of locals that are friendly and ready to help you enjoy your stay. Just across the street you can get a great breakfast or coffee at Bliss or a fresh fruit smoothie at Crush. Lunch at Ocean Fifteen for local Rotis and Cafe Sol for great drinks and mexican food. Must see: Animal Flower Cave, Bathsheba, and Crane Beach. Surfing: Barry's Surf School, they can take you to any beach to catch waves. Swim with sea turtles: "Wasn't Me" with Captain Ron, nice boat, friendly and fun staff, good food and good price.

I have given this property 5 stars, but there were a few small problems. The dryer was broken and we were not able to wash our clothes, bath towels or beach towels. However, the dryer was checked by Mgmt and sending it out for repairs. We also did not have wash clothes or bath mats when we arrived but staff quickly resolved this problem. The codes we were given for car access did not work and after the 3rd day security gave us a code that worked the remainder of our trip.

I am looking forward to returning to Barbados and would stay at this property.

Great Condo for Girls' Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Six ladies from Tennessee had a wonderful, relaxing vacation in this beautiful and spacious condo. The view of the beach and the sea was breath-taking. We loved sitting on the large patio looking out over the pool and the lovely blue water. The beds were comfortable. Having three bathrooms and large walk-in closets were a plus with 6 females. The modern kitchen was well-stocked and we appreciated the "goodies" that we found when we arrived. The living room furniture was comfortable and we enjoyed watching HGTV together. The paintings on the walls were gorgeous. We did not have to rent a car. We either walked or Darren picked us up in his van. He was honest and reliable. Meeting us at the airport and taking us back to our return flight was so helpful and one more thing we did not have to stress about. What a difference he made in our vacation because he took us wherever we wanted to go and showed us some beautiful sites. He took us to Oistens and we enjoyed the fish fry immensely. We highly recommend Darren as a driver and Sylvie can give you his email address. Sylvie was wonderful to work with, understanding when we had two ladies that were unable to travel with us. Rebecca helped us with one of the safes that refused to open. It was great to have so many safes for our valuables. There are many restaurants and shops along the Gap. Bliss and the the Steak restaurant were great for breakfast. Behind the steak place is a great little shop owned by Sheldon with many fun things to buy. The food at Crave and Champers was delicious. Walkers' Furniture store had many cute things to buy for gifts. Barbados is a fantastic island to visit. We highly recommend Sylvie's lovely condo.

Fantastic!!!

  • 5 of 5

Great property! Spacious, clean, well furnished and beautiful! We had 5 adults staying for 6 nights in June...very comfortable for all of us! Transportation was short and easy from the airport (we took a cab). The condo is on a private beach right next to the Dover beach establishments. Easy to rent a chair for the day on the beach (which is beautiful and perfect for swimming). The condo is located within walking distance to lots of bars and restaurants, and within cab distance of anywhere you may want to go. Cabs are always sitting outside the property so super easy to access. Rebecca was great and greeted us at the condo with cold beers and even a small stock of food to get us started!!! Everything was so easy and stress free! I highly recommend, and hope to have the opportunity to stay again!!! Thank you so much Sylvie and Rebecca!

Perfect stay in Barbados!

  • 5 of 5

My stay at Sylvie's place was nothing short of excellent. I came here to celebrate my 38th Birthday with my mom, two of my sisters and my brother in law. We were all thrilled when we arrived at Sylvie's beautiful and spacious condo. The layout is superb, the bedrooms large and having 3 bathrooms makes life a lot easier! The condo is right on the beach and within walking distance to amazing restaurants and bars. We could not have been happier with the location and the gorgeous beach. There is a car rental place right across the street. This is very convenient if you want to explore the island and travel to some other beaches.

Sylvie is a gem and extremely easy to communicate with. She was even kind enough to mail back a precious item my mother forgot in the safe.

I highly recommend staying here if you want a clean, spacious condo where you can feel at home. It was so nice to be able to make coffee in the morning and some of our meals. The kitchen has all the basics and is big enough for a few cooks! If we come back to Barbados, we will definitely stay here.

An FYI for future travelers, don't bother requesting a taxi service beforehand. It's actually much cheaper to just get one at the airport. We had 5 people in our party and there are many vans with friendly drivers at the airport.

Our Sapphire Beach Condo sits on Dover Beach which is one of the longer and wider white sand beaches found on the island and has mostly calm waters and is safe for swimming year-round. For the safety of locals and visitors alike there is a daily lifeguard presence as can be identified by the yellow lifeguard hut found there and on many of the other popular swimming beaches. Because of its beauty and popularity, Dover Beach hosts a wide range of both water sport and other beach rental service providers such as SunFish and catamaran sailing, boogie board, snorkel, beach lounges and umbrella rentals to name a few. Just opposite the beach is a playing field where you can enjoy an occasional game of cricket, soccer or basketball.

The property is located a short 15-minute drive from the airport in the south east and also from the main city Bridgetown (good choice for duty free shopping) in the south west. Barbados is a mostly flat coral island of only 21 by 14 miles (166 square miles) so getting anywhere is a short drive by comparison to most other travel destinations. As a mature holiday destination, the islands infrastructure such as road and road signage are also well developed.

Barbados is known for being safe and for the friendliness of its people so getting around and seeing the sights is recommended and locals will be happy to offer directions should you lose your way. Aside from renting a car, visitors can utilize the available public transportation of Government operated Mercedes coaches or the smaller privately owned buses and vans which can take you anywhere for no more than US$1.00 per trip. Bus stops are located along almost every road and in the case of Sapphire Beach are no more than a five minute walk away.

As we are very near the St-Lawrence Gap, there are a wide selection of restaurants within easy walking distance as well as bars, nightclubs and gift shops. Small grocery stores and an ATM are within walking distance as well. Having a car is not necessary but if you want to rent one, a parking spot is available for you in the complex (within the secure area).

Oistins, an outdoors location just a 10 minute drive away, is famous for fresh local seafood (Fish Fry) prepared as you watch. With great bars, music and gift shopping it is popular with locals and visitors alike. North, along the coast, you will find Speightstown and Holetown which boast a long and intriguing history. The scenery around the Crane area is spectacular. The island offers many activities from submarine and coastal catamaran trips to cave and historic plantation tours. There is also a wildlife reserve and nature tours such as the Welchman Hall Gully. For indoor shopping, movies and a great food court, there is the Sheraton Mall (2.6 km from Sapphire). Feel free to ask us for recommendations based on your preferences such as coach tours or more active ones such as the Zip Line adventures where you glide safely in a harness over one of the most scenic natural gullies on the island.

The fringes and reefs found off Barbados blossom with healthy sponges, coral and plant life. There are several types of reefs, each one unique in its own special way.

There is No lack of things to do but don't forget above all:

It's Limin'Time!
