About Wolfgang Lange
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 and kitesurfing spots in the world.
Wolfgang Lange purchased this Apartment in 1992
Why Wolfgang Lange chose Silver Sands
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.
What makes this Apartment unique
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 and last but not least, a very fast WIFI is available free of charge for our guests.

The grounds, gardens and buildings are beautiful at Inchview, very well maintained...even nicer than the pictures online. Seaview was the perfect unit for 2, on the upper floor with a very large balcony ideal for watching the waves roll in. The unit was very comfortable, well-furnished and clean...perfect for a beach holiday. We did not get the opportunity to meet Wolfgang, but the rental process and correspondence was prompt and seamless. Staff at Inchcape were very friendly and willing to help. Short walk to the beach, if you enjoy playing in the waves then Silver Sands, Silver Point and Crane beach are ideal; Rockley Beach was perfect to catch the sunset. Car rental is a good idea if you plan on exploring the island; venture out to the North Point and Bathsheba for spectacular rugged views. Oistins Fish Fry on Friday is an event, also check out the Fish Pot Restaurant (St. Lucy), Surfer’s Bay Beach Bar (5 walk from Inchcape) and Café Luna (Oistins). Amazing get away!
Brilliant place in a perfect loaction
Our first floor apartment, Seaview, gave us a delightful vista through the palm trees and down to the sea. You also look down onto the ground floor apartments’ garden and hammock below. The white, sandy beach is a 2 minute walk away. The colours in the warm turquoise waters are truly amazing, and being east facing, the Atlantic surf provides plenty of waves to play in; whether you’re a surfer, windsurfer, kite surfer or just want some fun. If you want a calmer, more serene paddle, Miami beach is just a short mini-bus ride away, and has a food and coffee stall on site as well as immaculately clean changing, shower and WC facilities.
The trade winds, and being on the first floor, negate the need for air conditioning in Seaview, which has 2 x glazed, double patio doors leading out onto a large balcony. There are also wooden plantation shutters on all the windows and doors which you can open or close. The balcony has a table, 2 chairs and two sunbeds as well as a wooden drying horse. You approach Seaview down a side entrance and up some wooden stairs. You enter through the small kitchen and then into the bedroom. The large bedroom, with a very comfortable double bed with simple white cotton sheets, has a high vaulted wooden ceiling with a fan. There is a table, 2 arm chairs, a TV and plenty of storage. The shower room is off to one side. The paint work, the cleanliness the whole ambience is 100% perfect, and has an overall very colonial, Caribbean feel. We couldn’t have been happier.
In summary, we loved Inchcape, we were delighted with Seaview and would be very happy to stay in Seaview again, but would also love to stay in Sunrise on our next visit. Oh yes, will there be a next visit? Oh yes there will. In another 25 years? No way. A soon as possible!
Great views, location and sounds....
Seaview Apartment, on first floor, with a large balcony and views to die for, lovely beach to walk along pre breakfast on the balcony. Beach bar with good food (limited menu) good atmosphere, music (live on Thursdays and Sundays) other restaurants a taxi ride away The gardens are wonderful, with a choice of sunbeds, chairs, Cabana's and Hammocks lovely shade from palm trees, all accompanied by the sound of crashing waves, wonderful.
As stated above, we stayed in Seaview for 14 nights, great views, had the comany of a pair of Barbados Bullfinches (Sparkies to the locals) Humming birds zooming around the well tended gardens, we even saw Mongoose and Green Monkeys in the local area.
Didn't meat Wolfgang or Rosie apart from a phone call about the hire car he had booked for me. But very pleasant chat with him, and his staff were all very friendly. As standard you have your towels and bedding changed every 3 days, and room cleaned to a good standard. You will need $50 deposit for your safe key (safe a little on the small side, but adequate, just!....)
We walked into Oistins 2 or 3 times (about 2 miles, and easily do-able) Try the Fish Market and buy some Mahi Mahi, Tuna King Fish etc good prices and really tasty and fresh fish! Also Enterprise beach (Miami Beach to locals) $20 for 2 sunbeds, plenty of shade from trees on beach, Mr Delicious food "bus" does awesome Chicken Roti's and Banks beer is a MUST do!
All in all we had a wonderful time in this great accommodation, and would not hesitate to return.
The paradise on earth
I am coming back.
I'm going to Barbados on a regular basis, one of the reasons being because I found the perfect place to stay, the Inchcape Seaside Villas. Since I found this property, I always stay there and I've been equally highly satisfied in each visit.
From the property’s colonial style feeling to the cosy interiors without having to renounce on modern amenities, from the location right on the beach and not far from restaurants and entertainment, to the incredible friendliness and efficiency of the staff, this place is just amazing.
I can't wait to go back as I'm confident that it will be perfect again.
Dreamy Chic Bajan Oasis w/ Top Notch Hospitality
I can't say enough about how wonderful it was to stay at the Inchcape Villas. From the initial greeting to the departure, it exceeded expectations like I had found a home away from home.
Wolfgang and Rosie (the owners) go beyond the call of duty to make sure your needs are taken care of. They help to arrange anything from airport pickup, to the details and rates of a rental car, and will give you the insight on latest to dos (and not to dos) of the island. As residents of Barbados for decades, they have amazing insight and recommendations.
The villas are impeccably maintained with taste and elegance each with the added element of the sounds and feel of the sea. We stayed in the Townhouse which the website images do no justice.
perfect place for a break from every day life
From the very beginning communication with the owners was quick and reliable. All our questions concerning booking procedures have been answered promptly and in full detail.
On arrival we have been met by an airport driver, a service organized by the Inchcape Seaside Villas´s management. At the premises we have been welcomed by the chief maid/manager on site Natalie who handled the check-in procedures explaining the various facilities available, among them also a very quick and reliable free WLAN, showing us around the compound. Whenever we had a request Natalie and the maids took care of it quickly and friendly, their service was first class. We had booked two studios, “Coconut” on the ground floor with a very well kept garden and “Seaview” above on the upper floor with a large terrace. Both of them consisting of very spacious bedroom/living room, a well equipped kitchen and a conveniently furnished bathroom.
It is only a few meters to the beach, but because of the strong tide and waves, perfect for surfers, we preferred to go swimming at the gentle “Miami Beach” in the very vivid village of Oistens, to be reached by a 10 minute drive by public mini bus. Since the Inchcape Seaside Villas are located in a somewhat remote area it is the perfect place to take a profound break from every day life. For entertainment we frequented the Surfer´s Beach Bar nearby which offers a small variety of dishes in the evening, accompanied by a sort of music.
Towards the end of our stay we eventually met the owners who themselves have been on holidays, out of Barbados. It was a pleasure meeting Wolfgang and Rosi, we had a chat in a very friendly atmosphere and we could assure them that they have created a very particular gem adorning a true Caribbean paradise.
The villas and apartments are located on the very private ocean front estate of the “Inchcape Seaside Villas”, which is clustered on the southern most tip of Barbados. The houses are facing into the gentle breezes of the trades, which provide for the most perfect climate Barbados has to offer, never too warm or too cold. Inchcape also overlooks one of the island's most beautiful and unspoiled white sand beaches and is surrounded by brilliant clear, turquoise blue water. The beach is heaven for swimming and snorkeling, windsurfing and kitesurfing, surfing and boogie boarding. One side of Silver Sands Beach can have a little shore beak while the other side is much calmer and ideal for swimming and sea bathing. Life in this part of the island is casual and unhurried in the true Barbadian tradition. The small fishing village of Oistins is just a few minutes away and there are plenty of restaurants and supermarkets from in walking distance to just minutes away by car.
Other Activities: kitesurfing, boogie boarding, bodysurfing, and much more.
Golf: The Inchcape management gladly arranges tee times and lessons. The Barbados Golf Club, Sandy Lane and Royal Westmoreland have excellent pro shops. The combination of golf, sun and the Caribbean Sea, a comfortable place 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.
The Seaside Cottage is part of the Inchcape Seaside Villas portfolio, where more / other units can be found which might also suit your needs and taste. These can also be found right here on the Homeaway website.
