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.

Lovely apartments right on a wonderful beach

  • 5 of 5

Inchcape is a hidden gem in one of the friendliest countries I have ever been to. We loved our apartment and to eat and spend time on our terrace right by the sea. Inchcape is perfectly located. There is peace and quiet and it’s also only 5 minutes away from the action at the Oisting fish market. We enjoyed the whole property, loved everything about our stay at the Inchcape Villas and also the island of Barbados.

Stunning location and great value for money......

  • 5 of 5

We've now enjoyed four stays at this great location and have no hesitation in giving it 5 stars. You really can't go wrong with any of the properties on offer. We always book direct with Wolfgang and Rosi and this has always been a real pleasure since we know we're in safe hands. (There's a load of other places we wouldn't touch unless it was through a tour operator!).

You will need a car if staying more than a few days since the best beach for swimming (Miami Beach) is, like Oistins, about a ten minute drive away. Steve's "Surfers Bay Beach Bar" is a short walk away and offers pretty good food albeit at a bit of a price hike over previous years. It still offers a great atmosphere and some good live music on Sunday's and mid week.(Band "X" not sure about the trombone player).

The cottages at Inchcape are maintained really well and the cleaners are all excellent - our favourite though is Norma who always manages those little extra touches that can make your stay even more memorable.

Yes, we would recommend Inchcape to our best friends - not sure we'd want relatives to stay though.....

Sssssh this is a hidden gem

  • 5 of 5

I cannot express what a complete sanctuary Inchcape Seaside Villas are... a tranquil location with a stunning beachfront view.

We rented Seaside Villa which has direct beach access and a wonderful outside deck to read, enjoy the sunshine, watch the every changing beach waves and sip an evening cocktail. While the waves are strong and ideal for surfers / kite surfers you are still able to cool off in the beach surf, just not suitable for swimming.

The villa itself is simply beautiful, well appointed and super clean. We wanted for nothing with the amazing happy, staff taking care of us daily. Wolfgang and Rosie are superb hosts ...nothing is too much trouble....from booking to departure ...thank you....we are truly sad to leave tomorrow but will be back for sure.

A vacation gem not to passed up...sssssh

Car: recommended

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?

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.
