About the property

Inchcape Seaside Villas

All units at the Inchcape Seaside Villas stand for extravaganza in architecture and Caribbean lifestyle at its best. House Sunrise, House Courtyard, the Gatehouse 1 bedroom apartment Tower and our most favorably priced The Studio are more than just a place to stay. Our accommodations let you experience the exotic mix, flavor and coziness of an old Caribbean plantation style property, serving today as beautifully located ocean front holiday homes, on the western end of the white sand beach of Silver Sands with it’s crystal clear and turquoise blue waters of the Caribbean Sea. All our units are a fine example of beautifully designed and finished West Indian homes. The houses are framed by natural gardens of tropical plants and trees and its wooden decks and terraces just a few meters from the water’s edge, are responsible for breathtaking and unobstructed views of the Caribbean Sea. The Inchcape Seaside Villas are a truly wonderful experience.

Windsurfing: The spot to windsurf in Barbados is the area of Silver Sands, where the conditions are challenging yet forgiving and where circumstances are unbelievably convenient - and Inchcape is located right on the edge of Silver Sands beach.

You only rig up once and store your equipment just a few steps from the water. Shower, shade, relaxation area, everything combined right at your house, right on the spot, which is so unique. We have made it possible for you to enjoy this luxury windsurfing experience at our gorgeous vacation home, Inchcape in Silver Sands, on the Caribbean island of Barbados.

Sounds to good to be true?!? May be it does, but this dream will come true for you when you decide to come and stay with the people who discovered Silver Sands as a world class wave windsurfing spot. In 1978 Rosi and Wolfgang, your hosts at Inchcape, were the first people to ever sail at Silver Sands' reef formations.

Kitesurfng: Jim Drake, one of the inventors of windsurfing in the '70s, had already experimented with a wing, shaped like a hangglider, in the early stages of windsurfing... Time has gone by and the wing has become a kite which finally turned out to be an appropriate alternative for accelerating a surfboard using windpower.

Since kitesurfing really started taking off about two years ago, the still relatively small kitesurfing community learned quickly that special circumstances are needed to make kitesurfing a safe and enjoyable experience.

Barbados isn't only blessed with it's unique windsurfing conditions, it also proved to have some of the most ideal kitesurfing beaches possible. There are first of all the beaches around Inchcape, like Silver Sands and Silver Rock, which attract most of the kitesurfers. Brian Talma's Action Shop at Silver Rock is available for kitesufing lessons.

Surfing: When the world was created, Barbados was given an abundance of potential for becoming a surfer's paradise. The island's location far out in the Atlantic Ocean allows waves to travel thousands of kilometers on the bottom of the sea to finally unload all the power they developed during the long journey over Barbados' coral reefs.

As Barbados is a coral island, a coral reef stretches all around Barbados' coastline, providing for unlimited surfing conditions all over. No matter whether a swell approaches the island from a northerly or westerly direction or whether it's moving in from the East or the South, Barbados is guaranteed to have surf somewhere along it's shores at almost any given day of the year.

Also Inchcape is blessed with a surf break right in front of the property:

The shorebreak at Inchcape on the western end of Silver Sands beach is a pitchy shorebreak and can fit all sorts of descriptions, from mushy to super clean, it can be quite powerful or moderate and changes daily

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 spots in the world.

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 house 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.

A quiet high quality place on SE coast of Barbados

  • 5 of 5

A delightful stay for a quiet vacation, just 10 - 15 minutes from the action of Ostins. A relatively small property with varied rooms. Our unit was large, with a side porch with great ocean views. Unit was immaculate with a full kitchen. Wifi was excellent. Beach is right out the door, and virtually deserted. Wind surfer paradise is just one beach over, about a 10 minute walk. Be prepared for strong but warm breezes and good sized waves. Definitely a place we will return to.

Window to a perfect holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We were a party of 3 and stayed at the Seaside Villas, Courtyard house at the end of January for four nights and loved every minute of it. There is nothing more relaxing to wake up and go to bed hearing the sound of the sea. It is truly a lovely villa and so is the property itself. You wake up in the morning, can have breakfast on the terrace overlooking the sea and just in a few minutes you are in a beautiful beach for a perfect relaxation. We loved that the Silver Sands Beach is just next door and that its not crowded, we also loved the possibility to just chill by the terrace of the villa or swing on the hammock in the garden and just enjoy the view and the breeze.

The villa inside is very spacious and very well kept and clean. Everything was nicely prepared for our arrival, all cooking facilities worked well and there were plenty of dishes to use for having a nice meal.

We arrived late at night and Wolfgang had arranged for a taxi which was waiting for us nicely on time and the taxi driver even took us to a local mini market where we could very conveniently buy food for the next days. Next morning the cleaning lady came to say hi and showed us all the facilities which is also well appreciated - she is such a nice and helpful lady! Upon our departure, the wife of Wolfgang, Rosi, came to say bye which was also a nice gesture from her!

The property is also well located - not far from the airport and it is also easy to use public transport for travelling around in the island. Only 5-10min walk up to the minimarket near the church where you find a bus stop which takes you to Oistins / Bridgetown. The buses run until midnight and we never had troubles getting back to the property even late at night.

We would definitely stay again at the Seaside Villas and would recommend it to anyone - a group of friends or a family vacation as the place and the beach are truly amazing. We saw other hotels in town which we had looked into while looking for a place to stay in Barbados and after staying at the seaside Villas we would not had liked to spend our holidays in any other property in the island!

Thanks a lot to Wolfgang and his team!

serenity

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 4 nights in the coconut suite. Thank you to Wolfgang for being able to fit my 4 day request into bookings that are usually one week.

The property is remarkably well laid out. Each suite has a varied degree of privacy when wanted as well as adequate shade when needed. Loungers and patio sets accompany each suite. Some have hammocks.

The view is spectacular and the sounds of the waves relaxing.

The beach besides the property is very clean however mostly unswimmable because of the waves. Yesterday we counted 30 kite boards in the water off the beach.

This is a villa which can suit your purpose very well if you know before hand what is around you.

1) this is a great place if you have meals planned and purchased to cook in the well appointed kitchen. Don't plan on a quick trip to grocery store as the nearest " real " supermarket is 7 mins away by car in Oistins

2) there are a couple of mini marts a 5 min walk away that have cold drinks and some basics

3) if you aren't content with sitting on the same beach each day, you will need a vehicle or have a taxi arranged for you. Several great beaches close by

4) only real restaurant within walking distance is sunset beach bar a 2 min walk away - great happy hour and they don't scrimp on the booze. Cheap and good.

This resort is exactly what it states to be- self catering and pride of ownership Wolfgang and his wife Rosie shows through in the condition of the property. The staff on site are courteous and took care of any requests we made.

All in all one of the best self catering units we have stayed in through our many years of travel. View spectacular, beach clean and beautiful sand and property first class

Huge, airy, wonderful apartment by the beach!

  • 5 of 5

Our 4th time staying at Inchcape but our first in Courtyard. This apartment is huge, so airy and spacious, really for a family or 2 couples but we enjoyed it immensely. The balcony links the main bedroom and the lounge and gives wonderful views to the sea and lets the sound of the waves and beautiful sea breeze play through the building. Inchcape is situated on the south of the island and is away from all the tourist and super, over the top luxury hotels. Just the perfect place to relax and unwind in this beautiful cobbled courtyard complex of villas and apartments. The place is truly stunning, staff and hosts so friendly, gardens and grounds a delight and such a private secluded spot to base yourself. A delight to come home to every evening and wake up in every morning.

  • 5 of 5

Great Place

We arrived hassle free being picked up from the Airport & taken to Inchcape by Rodney the transfer guy laid on by The Owner Wolfgang. When we arrived we were swiftly shown to the Courtyard our Villa for 2 weeks by Norma the ever smiling Villa manager. No more than 5 minutes later we had the Hire car guy at the Villa dropping off the car also organised by Wolfgang.

Property description......

Wonderful Large Double bedroom & triple room for families, verandah looked right over the beach! Villa very clean with adequate Kitchen facilities" Good to go"

Service fantastic from all staff in a cheery manner

I would highly recommend this area to people wanting a real chilled beach holiday with Great restaurants not too far away!!

Property Location.....

For those of you who simply want to stay in the Shorts & kick back you can visit the the Surfers Beach restaurant literally 5 mins on foot from Inchcape/great bar with Ace Staff, food & atmosphere

Need to hire a car to get to the local amenities

The Beach at Inchcape is a surfers & Windsurfers Paradise with great rough Sea's

Inchcape is only 10 minutes drive to Supermarkets & tranquil Miami beach where you could spend the whole day relaxing in the sun with a wonderful beach bar in the car-park behind the Beach called Ju's, she serves complete fish meals & burgers for the Kids with Wonderfull near frozen beer, in the main Beach car park you will find Mr delicious for a beachside Drink. The Restaurants we enjoyed the most were: "Aspara Samudra" Top Indian & Thai cuisine, Luna Cafe ( right on Miami beach)!! Not to forget the wonderful" Champers" for Top end food !!! Chicken Rita's is an experience who offer both take away or sit in chicken & Chips, if you go to Bathsheba (45Mins in car) you can also eat at the Roundhouse which has the best view over the crashing surf & lovely food to Boot...

On the whole we were looked after from the start to the Finish with the ever efficient "owners & staff" at Inchcape, the whole experience with the lovely people & natural scenery make this a Great place to Holiday no matter if you want to beach it all day or simply drive around the Island and Chill !!!!!!!!!

What are you waiting for ?????

Location

Car: recommended

Barbados, Silver Sands, apartments, South coast, on the beach, beach front, surfing, windsurfing, kitesurfing, swimming, snorkeling,

Other Activities: kitesurfing, boogie boarding, bodysurfing, and much more.

Golf: 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?

General Info

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.

In the event of an unforeseeable situation to have to relocated a guest, we reserve the right to provide another equal accommodation or a free upgrade to higher priced category.
