About the property

Inchcape Seaside Villas

Inchcape Seaside Villas right on the white sand beach of Silver Sands

Luxurious 2 bedroom and 1 bedroom apartments right on Silver Sands Beach

All units at the Inchcape Seaside Villas stand for extravaganza in architecture and Caribbean lifestyle at its best. “House Seaside”, House Sunset, The Seaside Cottages, the Garden Apartment and the Coconut 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. “The Seaside-Cottages”, can be considered a fine example of beautifully designed and finished West Indian homes. The houses are framed by a natural garden of tropical plants and trees and its wooden decks and terraces on the ground and second floor level, just a few meters from the water’s edge, are responsible for breathtaking and unobstructed views of the Caribbean Sea. The Inchcape units truly are a 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.

Kitesurfing: 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.

Wolfgang Lange purchased this apartment in 1992

Why Wolfgang Lange chose Christ Church

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.

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I stayed a week at Inchcape Seaside Villas. The place is quiet and beautiful. The Coconut Studio where we stayed, is a small, clean and comfortable apartment. People are kind and very hospitable. I totally recommend it, especially for those who like windsports.

Feeling Good In The Carribean

  • 5 of 5

Again and again we travel to Barbados to the Inchcape. It was now the 4th time. The apartments for self-catering are nice, but also appropriately furnished, offer plenty of space, the service by the maids is great and because of the location close to the sea it is never too hot. If we have a wish or a question, the managers Wolfgang and Rosie always gladly help us. Their hospitality is legendary, this time Rosie baked delicious apple and plum cake and she showed us how lobster is prepared for dinner. On the terrace we had had stimulating conversations.

About Wolfgang we got a rental car, with which we went everywhere well. If we had no desire for self-catering, there were eating possibilities close to us, where there was something suitable for every wish.

The day we always started with bathing in the surf directly in front of Inch Cape, on the beach, where we could also make windsurfing and other great water sports. This time we liked the zoo, the caves in the north of the island and the Concorde Museum at the airport.

We can recommend Barbados at the Inch Cape. It certainly will not be the last time for us at this beautiful place.

beautiful location, relaxing stay

Inchcape Villas is a cluster of beautifully maintained classic coral villas on a headland in the Caribbean. Accommodation is understated but comfortable. Everything is clean and reliable. Car rental is a must.

Stunning & Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

I had the pleasure of spending two weeks at Inchcape. I have known this location for many years . You are right in front of the ocean and away from the busy south coast, however everything you need (shops and restaurants) is well within reach . The apartment was a comfortable spacious one bedroom , clean, and decorated in stylish fashion.

The property is equipped with cable tv and wi-fi so staying connected was not a problem. The sound of wind and the ocean accompanied my sleep every night, while the mornings were soothed by the sound of the birds singing.

No matter whether you are a windsurfer, kitesurfer or just want to relax on the beach, swim or just lie in the sun on this lovely beach, this is the place to be

When staying at Inchcape I recommend visiting Surfer's bay (you can walk to it from Inchcape) a great beach bar with good vibes and food, with the occasional live etertainment on some nights. Also Chicken Rita (the world famous fried chicken) is an experience and is located very near the property. Fish Market in Oistins and miami beach are less than 5 mins by car. Definitely recommend staying here and hopefully will stay again soon.

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.
