Description

Garden Apartment

The Garden Apartment is located on the very private ocean front estate of the “Inchcape Seaside Villas, right on Silver Sands Beach, 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. Garden has two outdoor terrace areas facing 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 alike. 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. 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. Come visit and see for yourself.


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.

A little bit of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

Inchcape Seaside Villas is exceptional! The place is even prettier than the pictures and if you are like us, you are drooling over the pictures right now. The turquoise blue ocean is steps away from the unit, the pounding waves lull you to sleep at night. The gentle, tropical breeze is always present to keep you cool, you don't even think of needing a/c. Wolfgang and his staff take care of your from your first step on the island at the airport, with Rodney waiting to take you to the villa. The staff is there is greet you and show you around. The rental car is dropped off at the villa for you. The unit is comfortable, clean and perfect for a couple. Your personal maid cleans the unit and gives you fresh towels and sheets every couple of days. The view from the unit is great, but sitting at the table you have a privacy wall that prevents a full view, the upper deck area that is for the unit has a limited view but is awesome. The grounds of the property are like a garden and there are plenty of chairs, hammocks and even some day beds to lay and watch the beautiful water. A modern grocery store is about 10 min. away by car, there is a great seaside bar within walking distance, and several beautiful beach areas to enjoy that can be walked to. This was our first time in Barbados and we can't wait to go back. We would certainly stay at Inchcape again.

A slice of paradise...

  • 5 of 5

Inchcape is a lovely slice of paradise! Friendly, clean and very well-maintained grounds with an unrivaled view. Our Coconut home had everything we needed including our own yard with outdoor shower, hammock and dining area. Beach is right there and the sound of the waves is lulling and a great way to go to sleep. Breezes blowing... Staff could not have been more accommodating and we will think of their warm smiles as we head back into a blizzard...

Lovely Stay

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I decided on a quick trip to Barbados, which lead us to Inchcape. Our room was as described and perfectly situated (only having to take a few steps to the ocean). The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. Prior to our arrival Wolfgang arranged transportation to and from the airport as well as a rental car that arrived shortly after we did. I would definitely return to Inchcape.

Great spot for kitesurfing

  • 5 of 5

Spent 2 weeks at Inchcape and had a fantastic time. Staff were friendly and couldn't do enough for us. We had a fantastic spot right on the beach and our unit spotless and beautiful. Just what we were looking for.

Marvellous

  • 5 of 5

My broken heeled girlfriend cried when she got here,(she soon changed her mind) She said, "how do we get anywhere, it is too remote" Well it is far from remote. It is a wonderful spot.

There is a bus stop 7 to 10 minutes walk away. These are the buses that take you almost anywhere for 2 Bajan dollars, fantastic value.

Because of her inability to walk more than than a few yards, i hired a car. We always hire cars when away, so much more freedom to explore. The top man at Inchcape Seaside Villas is Wolfgang and he is a top man. He will find you a car if you want one, he is also the man to ask a "million" questions and he does not mind you doing that. He even gave us a lift into town on our first day, knowing that our car was not coming until the next day. (Poor planning on my part.) All the staff were lovely too, especially the lady who looked after us who's name escapes me, apologies!

The accommodation has everything you need as a home from home. If you want to cook at home you can, nice large kitchen with all the pots and pans one needs. We don't cook on holiday!

There is a large fridge for beer storage, comfortable bed, large sofas and nice shower room. All very tastefully decorated too.

Every evening after returning from our day out, we relaxed at one of the three seating areas outside The Garden Apartment. All one could hear were the waves lapping against the shore, all you could feel was the lovely sea breeze.

I have not been so chilled out in a long time.

For us, being from the south of England, booking Inchcape and the Virgin flights from Gatwick separately was a "No Brainer". I can see why families sometimes go all inclusive, but to me this is much better value. All Inclusive would have cost us in the region of £2000 more and we would have been tied to one place to get our money's worth. This way we could eat at a different place every day/night and explore lots of different beaches etc.

The day we left she cried again, partly due to the fact we were returning to the English winter, but mostly because we were leaving this idyllic place.

Some people will say that the ugly disused hotel nearby is a negative, I think the opposite. Being empty mens there is nothing and nobody to ruin the serenity.

As I say in the title Marvellous.
