The large, elegantly furnished sitting room leads through sliding french doors on to an expansive covered beach front terrace offering dining and lounging areas; stylish, retractable awnings provide additional shade from the afternoon sun and has easy beach access from the terrace. The Sand Dollar room opens to the beach-front terrace too, whilst the Parrot Room and Captains's Room, lead on to an intimate lagoon Terrace. (See the pictures). The magic of this home is having terraces on both sides enabling you to sit out and watch the sun set over the tranquil Caribbean sea in the evening, or to watch the boats going by in the marina where the boats are quietly berthed behind your home. Each terrace really gives a feeling of open island living where air conditioning is rarely needed although available.

One of the suites also opens to the beach-front terrace, whilst the other and study/TV room, lead on to the intimate lagoon balcony. Here are some reviews posted elsewhere about my apartment. Say no more: 1) Wow! This really is a stunning fabulous luxurious apartment. The views are amazing, right on the beach front on one side and lovely marina views from the back. The apartment is large and with an enormous balcony on both sides. The apartment is beautifully and tastefully furnished, it certainly feels like a luxurious home rather than a rental apartment. The description and photos are accurate. It is a very special location. The rooms are all spacious, everything you could think that you might need is here to use. The apartment was spotlessly clean and very well maintained. It has a calm relaxed chilling feel. We used the water taxi to hop over to the very good value PSC yacht club to eat and drink some days. Speightown is walking distance along the beach. Amazing place - do not hesitate to book, you will not be disappointed. Great communication and information from the owner. Loved it and would definitely return. 2) This is a beautifully appointed apartment overlooking the beach on one side and the marina on the other. The apartment is very clean and very well organised. It has a home from home feeling about it. It was nice to have a welcome pack in the fridge on arrival. Although we did not cook, the kitchen is fully equipped, should you want to. The bedrooms are light and airy with comfortable beds, nice bed linen and lots of wardrobe space. There is also a safe.The bathrooms are beautiful and there were plenty of towels. We had a maid coming in two mornings a week, cleaning and changing linen. The apartment is situated on one of the best beaches on the island. We were very well taken care of by the beach staff, providing loungers and umbrellas. The Yacht Club nearby provides good food and drinks but should you want to venture further afield, there are some fantastic restaurants on the island. For this you will need transport though. We booked the driver who picked us up from the airport for the evenings we were going out. The apartment is decorated and furnished to a very high standard, all in all - a delight. We would love to go back and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.

Wonderful apartment in paradise!
This apartment is quite simply....perfection! The location is incredible!! The amazing sea views were enjoyed as we sipped our rum punches on the beautifully equipped balcony. The beach is literally metres from the apartment with its own private gate onto the beach! The decor of the apartment is of a very high standard with a fully equipped kitchen, spacious bedrooms, beautiful bathrooms and luxurious living area. We would have no hesitation in staying here again, it is simply stunning!!

Fantastic apartment with amazing views!
Stayed at this beautifully appointed property for a week in June. Wonderfully equipped with the most comfy beds, beautiful living spaces and the most glorious sea views from the balcony. Your own private access to the beach makes it feel very special. Port St Charles is a lovely, quiet and secure place to stay with great facilities including tennis courts, 2 pools and a lovely yacht club for dinner or sundowners. Just a short walk along the beach takes you to charming Speightstown with its handful of shops and eateries. The apartment is perfectly placed to visit other parts of the island including the wilder north coast and the glitzy west coast. Nicola provided everything we needed for a wonderful holiday and the apartment was spotlessly clean. Will be back!

We're back again!
We've stayed here many times and it always blows our minds the moment we step into this home. The location, the home, the hosts helpfulness is simply paradise in a bottle. We could not want for any more. Everything is set up perfectly and to a very high standard. The home is nestled right on the beach which adds to the relaxation and the hassle free holiday. The 'bucket list' restaurants on the island are a must go to - either locally in Speightstown or a short taxi ride in Holetown and beyond. We pinch ourselves when we stay here to make sure it's real and you will too!

It’s our haven
We’ve stayed here a few times and absolutely loved it. It feels like home to us. We’ve been to a few of the neighbouring apartments for sundowner drinks and this apartment is by far the most beautifully interior designed and the quality of furnishings and personal touches makes you glad you aren’t in a hotel. Having the beach on the door step, two pools to choose from and the most incredibly friendly staff (gardeners especially) make for the best retreat to unwind and relax. Speightown, the local town, at first seems like a step back in time but then you find really quirky patisseries, fine dining restaurants and a brilliant hardware store. Can’t wait to come back next year!!

Save your money for a hotel
The condo is in a gated community so pretty sterile unless you like that kind of thing. It’s light bright and airy and good view of the beach. We wouldn’t stay again as the cleaner was very rude and unwelcoming, the owner is very uptight- happy to take 5k but acts like they’re doing you a favour letting you stay there. There’s literally a book of rules and every sofa and chair are covered in old towels to stop you sitting on them. The master bedroom with the best view is not available. Seems very tight to ask you to replace the ‘welcome’ pack of bread cheese and milk before you leave. My deposit wasn’t returned because apparently the sheets were stained by our perspiration! Do yourselves a favour and book any of the excellent hotels along the west coast where you can actually relax and feel welcome. Good riddance!

Paradise found - true barbadian luxury
It's when you find gems like this that you ask yourself....why oh why would you ever want to stay in a hotel room, when you can stay in such a beautiful hugely spacious penthouse with dreamy sea and marina views with a beach to die for, like this. I have visited practically every beach in Barbados and can honestly say this is the best, crystal clear and calm swimming beach on the island, and possibly one of the quietest. With the added benefit of being able to swim with the wild turtles. This penthouse is very tastefully furnished and kitted out. If you appreciate good quality sheets and towels, know a jo malone candle when you smell one, and demand only the best in mattresses, then you need to stay here. The huge terrace overlooking the sea is stunning (pictures do not do it justice), and the terrace on the opposite side, overlooking the marina, makes a lovely change of vista, plus a nice area to take breakfast. Dial 4444 on the phone and a boat collects you to take you to the yacht club, dial 4444 and the beach concierge will put loungers and umbrella on the beach for you. All you have to do is walk down a small flight of steps onto the beach, through your private gate, where you also have your own shower to rinse off the salt water after your swim. Snorkels, masks and flippers are in the apartment for you to use. If you want to swim in a pool, port st charles has two outdoor pools you can use, plus the most amazing, HUGE, air conditioned gymnasium - all free to use. The other plus is where it is situated, just on the outskirts of Speightstown - one of the few places on the west coast that still feels like the REAL barbados, where you'll mix with locals, see the charming old fashioned buildings, shop with locals, buy fresh fish on the side of the road from the fishermen as they bring it in, but also benefit from some lovely restaurants, a deli and great bakery, all just a short stroll along the beach. Bliss. So if you are hesitating, all I would say is DON'T - you certainly won't be disappointed. We can't wait to go back.

Wonderful Apartment in Beautiful Location
We first booked this apartment for a 7 day stay in Jan 2016. It was so good we immediately rebooked for 10 days in January this year. Upon arrival any concerns we had that our memories were rose tinted were immediately dispelled and we had another wonderful holiday - swimming, snorkelling, walking and sunbathing - not to mention dining particularly well in the Yacht Club and enjoying some very good meals in Speightstown- a 15 minute stroll away along the beach. In conclusion I should add that we have rebooked for January next year!

Fantastic apartment
Its hard to do justice to this stunning apartment. From the décor to the spacious living area, the beautiful views and the well kept communal gardens, there is nothing to dislike. The kitchen has top quality equipment with everything you need with ample cutlery and crockery. And I know its not everyone's idea of a holiday but cooking and relaxing on one of the two balcony's at spacious dining tables was a great way to relax in the evening. The beach is within a stones throw through a private gate, where one of the security staff who are always in attendance during the day will bring you a sunbed and umbrella. The beds are large and very comfortable we all slept very well, and sitting on the adjoining balcony for breakfast over looking the beautiful Caribbean sea is a holiday memory that will stay with you. Nicola was very helpful and made the booking process very smooth and simple, she even contacted us to make sure we were settled on our arrival. On our visits to Barbados we have always found hiring a car best if you want to find the little gems that are all over the island. But for those who don't, a $2 bus from outside the gates is a very easy and cheap way to travel. This apartment is not your run of the mill rental, its first class . I cant recommend it highly enough

Wall to wall luxury
A chance to spoil yourself in a stunning apartment situated in a well maintained and beautiful marina. Great rooms very well furnished and exceptional standard of fixtures and fitting, artworks, sculptures and furniture. Much love has gone into this apartment and it shines through. From the steps down to the exclusive beach with its warm water and bright sand to the spacious dining area on the marina facing balcony next to the kitchen with every appliance and item of cutlery and crockery to cater for 10 guests - this begs you to be having a wonderful holiday. Forget most of the restaurants - the food is expensive and fairly ordinary. Go and shop in town for your own local produce and dive into a cook book and produce great meals to remember. If you haven't moored your own yacht in the marina (!) hire a car. The marina is clean and well maintained but quiet. If you want some night life you will need to travel a few miles. If you don't have a car hire, catch one of the plentiful buses which run around the island all day and night for pennies. They are fun and friendly and go past the marina entrance.

Map
About the neighborhood
Port St Charles is 500m north of the small historic town of Speightstown. Here the sugar cane harvested in the north of the island was brought to be shipped by coaster to Bridgetown.Many old buildings remain from this era, and a musem can be visited to expain. But fishing has also been very important. Here Caribbean life is as it has been for hundreds of years, with the fishermen bringing in the day's catch to be sold at the town's fish market, the colourfully dressed ladies by the side of the main street selling fresh fruit and vegetables, the general hustle and bustle of a genuine Caribbean 'town'. There are also small supermarkets, a variety of shops, art galleries, rum bars, and restaurants. The more modern Holetown is 15 mins and Bridgetown the capital 30 mins away. Travel by bus (a hair raising ride in a yellow bus for $1) or more sedately by car or taxi.Bathsheba and the wild rugged East Atlantic coast is about 20 minutes away. Between PSC and there enjoy visiting Plantation Houses, working Sugar Cane fields, villages, Sea Caves, the hills of Scotland, Chalky Mount potteries, amazing vistas, limestone caves and much more.
Access
Car not needed
How to get there

Direct flights from Canada and the US.Taxis can be prearranged to transport you door to door,or if you prefer, car hire can be pre arranged for collection and return at the airport in Barbados. I will inform you of Taxi and Car Hire companies in the 'information pack' you will receive when a booking is made.If you wish to explore the island, and do not want to be just a 'beach bum' then I recommend you hire a car. Taxis are ideal for dining out in the evening at restaurants along the coast, as drinking and driving is not advisable.

Notes from owner
Prices quoted are for one bedroom regardless of 1 or 2 person occupancy. Any additional use of bedrooms incurs a minimum fee of £50 or £60 /night. This is automatically added to your quote if you have more than 2 people staying. If you require 2 bedrooms (one person per room please inform me with your enquiry and I will adjust the quote accordingly) VAT is charged at 7.5% until 1st January 2020 when it rises to 10%. This is factored into the Rental Rate. Room Rate Levy. There is now a Room Rate Levy which is payable to the Barbados Government. The Rate is the $8.75 Bds/night/bedroom. The site does not facilitate this payment, and so the Tax will be collected whilst in occupation I will follow this up and on confirmation of your interest I will email you my personal Rental Agreement which allows me to know some of you and your guests details. Please note that the preferred changeover day is Saturday although there is some flexibility.
