About Isabell Gaigg

Originally form Austria, graduated from the Hospitality and Tourism College, studied BA Financial Services & MsC information Systems in UK, married with 2 children, speaks German, Italian, French and English. Hobbies Sailing, golfing...

Isabell Gaigg purchased this house in 1980

Why Isabell Gaigg chose Barbados

Barbados is a beautiful place. The three major reason why be bought in Barbados :

Water supply - the other caribbean island are volcanic Barbados is pure coral stone- rainwater is filtered naturally through the limestones - we got our tap water tested in 2011 in Europe, got an excellent rating

Medical emergency- best Doctors and facilities available, other islands have to fly emergency patients to Barbados.

On our first arrival in Barbados in 1985 we were overwhelmed how friendly locals were to us- low crime rate compared to other islands.

What makes this house unique

The property is a unique location - on a half island in the sea, you can hear the waves and at full moon on a clear night the sand shines silver- magical - therefore the name Silver Sands. The House is over 50 years old, its NOT a 5*star property its a clean, comfortable (mattresses & pillows newish, fully equipped "Beachhouse"

Due to the extreme salty breeze, electrical equipment, stove and fridges dishwasher only survive max 2 years- constant fight with rust spots, and salty windows, but your lungs will love that salty breeze. The owner lives in the property behind, easy to contact, any problems, queries, requests - anything can be organized to make you feel as home as possible. Thank you

A welcome as warm as Barbados!

  • 5 of 5

Isabel and her family could not have been more welcoming! The villa is very clean and comfortable with stunning beaches on either hand.

A short walk up the beach to the Surfers Bar for some of Andy's amazing breakfast pancakes or a trip to Chicken Rita's for fried chicken and rum! It's a side of Barbados you won't see unless you meet someone like Isabel, I long to go back!

Loving the Sea in Silver Sands .

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was very clean and only a few steps from the waves. The bed was comfortable and the living room quite nice but we sat outside most of the time.When we arrived the fridge was well stocked with drinks and breakfast goodies. It was nice being near our hosts home . The entire experience was delightful. We say GO !!!!! Beverly Gerber
