About The Owner

I am semi-retired and live in Shropshire, England with my wife. We have two children and five grandchildren who all live close by - they keep us very busy!

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2008

Why The Owner chose Saint Lawrence Gap

My wife's family are from Barbados - they go back 300 years, probably kicked out of Britain as undesirables! She dragged me over there so many times in the end I decided to buy an apartment. I guess I have become a part-time Bajan.

What makes this apartment unique

We chose to buy a property in St Lawrence Gap because it's the centre of nightlife on the island with restaurants, bars, nightclubs plus supermarkets, shops, ATMs. Our apartment however is at the quiet end of the Gap in a new complex situated on a secluded beach but within easy walking distance of all the local amenities.

Wonderful condo. Great location

  • 5 of 5

This was our second trip to Barbados and wanted to try something different than a hotel. This was a great condo in a fantastic location. Very quiet area but not too far from restaurants etc. Cyrus was excellent answering questions etc. I am not sure if it was the time of year or not, but the beach was perfect for sunbathing but very rough surf--too rough for children. It was quite windy the week we were there, though. We would definitely stay here again.

Owner's Response: Many thanks for your kind review. Sorry to note the sea was a bit rough during your stay. I think this may be related to one of the hurricanes which the Caribbean from has suffered from this year. Although Barbados is generally outside the epicentre it has experienced some stormy weather as a result. Fortunately this is somewhat unusual for the island.

Beautiful condo that exceeded our expectations in every way

  • 5 of 5

Villa K is everything the listing says and more. We were met on arrival by Cyrus the property manager and had a tour of the property including beach front, pool and garden. Our jaws dropped when we walked through the apartment -- it was spotless, beautiful, and the balcony offers the most beautiful view in the world. We had cleaning service come in twice a week (friendly) and everything we needed for a perfect stay in Barbados. Would 100% recommend.

A piece of paradise

  • 5 of 5

I cannot recommend this property enough! Villa K provides the most perfect stay in Barbados. My family have stayed at the property twice now and very much look forward to returning in the near future.

The property has absolutely everything you could possibly need and most defiantly has that wow factor! The accommodation is immaculate and extremely well looked after by the staff, the large balcony overlooking the sea has to be my favourite place especially with a cup of coffee early morning. It’s great to watch the surfers and you can even do some turtle spotting.

The apartment literally has everything you need and is so spacious. The actual building is so very well maintained, the gardens are beautiful and pool area really clean. The location of Villa K is just perfect, in walking distance to some great restaurants and bars on the gap but far out enough for you to enjoy the peace and quiet.

The easy access to the beach is great and Dover beach is literally just round the corner if you want a calmer swim. It’s great to hire a car and explore the island, secure / easy parking is also available.

We have visited Barbados 4 times now and without a doubt Villa K has been our favourite place to stay, we love the freedom that an apartment gives in comparison to staying in a hotel. Phil made planning our stay really easy and provided us with all the info needed, Cyrus also arranged all our taxis and was on hand if we needed anything while we were there. We are really starting to see the apartment as our second home and I cannot explain the feeling you get when you walk out onto the beautiful balcony. Definitely 5 star Barbados accommodation!

Twice is a Charm!

  • 5 of 5

Without a doubt, the best accommodations I have had in Barbados and frankly ranks at the top of any other place we have visited in the world. Villa K is extremely well equipped, conveniently located in the GAP (a bit away from the active night time hotspots so pretty peaceful) and within easy walking distance of everything one might need. The quality of the build is outstanding, the views are postcard perfect, great beach, swam in the ocean at least once every day we were there and had as many meals in as we did out. Philip is a pleasure to work with in renting his Barbados home and we plan to return, definitely!

Stunning apartment

  • 5 of 5

We have just spent 10 wonderful days at Phil & Jan's apartment. It has everything, stunning views, immaculate inside and out. Paradise! The photo's really don't do it justice you have to visit in person! We travelled around Barbados and always felt WSB villas were just the best accommodation we had seen and felt glad that we had made such a fabulous choice.

Our only negative, which is not to do with the apartments, is that food and drink is pretty expensive and some restaurants are very expensive. Ocean 2 and Crave to be avoided for that reason!

Thanks again Phil & Jan for letting us share your wonderful home in the sun.
