About sylvie bourgault

My husband and I share a passion for travelling and photography and love to meet new people and share their culture. As we are approaching retirement, we have realized one of our dreams when we bought this beautiful home in Barbados where we can enjoy the sea breeze, daily swims in the ocean and embrace a different culture. We are planning to discover more of this beautiful world and want to share our place in paradise with you when we are not using it. We hope you will like it as much as we do.

sylvie bourgault purchased this condo in 2013

Why sylvie bourgault chose Saint Lawrence Gap

The year around good temperature, safety, hospitality of the Bajans and modern conditions of Barbados are some of the reasons we chose this small gem of the Caribbean.

Sapphire Beach condos are the newest and most sought after vacation homes in Barbados. Located on a magnificent beach with easy access to everything, this well designed luxurious condo has it all.

Read the reviews, it says it all!

What makes this condo unique

We can invite friends and family and feel very safe and welcomed. Being in the south of Barbados, we can easily discover new beaches and mingle with the Bajans and feel like we're at home!

Guestbook comments from the manager

"This condo is amazingly well appointed and in a perfect location! From the moment you walk in the door, you can tell it is brand new. Everything is fresh and clean, and the décor is beautiful. The layout was perfectly spacious for us 6 adults, with 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, and the large balcony overlooking the pool and ocean was splendid. The cupboards are very well stocked; everything you need to kick back and relax is at your fingertips. We have traveled to many islands and exotic places around the world, and so far, this is the best overall location we have ever been to. The beach is so pristine with the white sand beach. You can snorkel with the sea turtles right out your front door. We would generally hang out at the beach in the morning, head to the pool in afternoon with a cocktail, and then bbq on the beach again at sunset. It was absolute bliss! The condo is perfectly located in a quiet neighborhood, but with enough going on around you that you truly feel the warm hospitality of the locals. The bus stop is only 2 blocks away, and you can get virtually anywhere for a dollar or two. If you want to tour the island, there is a car rental agency just across the street. There are several shops and restaurants within easy walking distance too. This was a perfect holiday and I can’t wait to go back!"

"It is true. There is no place like home, however, I must say that being a first time visitor to Barbados, I found this condo to be as comfortable as my home! There is nothing missing in and around this condo. Your are within a 2 minute walk to a quick food store for necessities. And a quick 10 minute bus ride for the big grocery store. I would not hesitate to take the bus during the day alone.

This condo is so well situated within walking distant to restaurants,bars, clubs, and wonderful shopping areas. I spent 9 days here and missed nothing. Great TV, music system and internet connected me to my family back home.

I went to their recommended restaurant

Champers. All I can say is OMG and Wow!!! Amazing food, service and local arts upstairs. Which I bought most of my take home gifts.

There is also a wonderful little cafe style restaurant across the street called BLISS. Highly recommend this for breakfast and lunch.

If there is a special occasion, then Bliss will certainly make you a wonderful cake for it.

I must not forget that this condo sits right on the beach. Truly a walk across the pool area and Voila!! you are at the beach. Rent a chair and leave your stuff. I had no problems, no vendors selling stuff and bothering you.

This Condo was just as advertised and reviewed by other renters. Because we all know, we read the reviews before renting."

Superb condo right on the beach

  • 5 of 5

This is a stunning condo, very large rooms with everything you need for a great holiday. The staff were helpful, attentive and friendly, and the welcome pack was a lovely and extremely useful touch- everything you need to start a perfect holiday. The view was stunning, amazing sunsets, great location easy to walk - we didn’t need a car.

We saw turtles on the reef, bring water shoes if you want to explore the reef. Thank you for an amazing holiday!

Awesome location and spacious well appointed condo on Dover beach

  • 5 of 5

We really loved our stay at Saphire Beach condo (unit 215). We were 2 families (4 adults and 3 teenage boys) and we had a loads of space. It was great having the 3 bathrooms. The view from the condo was amazing and the patio very spacious. We had all our meals all week on the patio!

The condo location on the Gap was also great as we could walk to a large number of restaurants and take part in activities close by.

Would love to go back to Barbados and stay in the same condo at Saphire beach.

Welcome to paradise!

  • 5 of 5

An amazing condo with the best balcony view, spacious with 3 great sized bedrooms and the walk in closets are very helpful.

The balcony is pure paradise as the view blows your mind, we had breakfast on the dining table on the balcony every morning.

The bathrooms/kitchen/laundry rooms are also great and everyone was very helpful with helping us get settled in.

We will definitely be back.

Fantastic unit, wonderful beach

  • 5 of 5

Received wonderful service from Sylvie and the unit was well maintained and clean upon arrival.

Everything you need is included, the kitchen is properly stocked with good quality kitchenware. The whole unit is updated and modern style.

It is a wonderful view and the nearby community is peaceful and quiet making it very easy to relax.

The beach is only a few steps away, and even in the busy times of year, not overly populated. Nice and calm ocean and friendly crowds.

I would highly recommend this unit! It made for a flawless vacation.

Dover Beach


At Dover Beach there is lots of beach area for relaxing and tanning, with a number of shade trees dotting the shoreline. This beach offers quite a few water sports activities and beach rentals to service the tourist staying nearby.

On the beachfront of Dover beach there is a small boardwalk, and a beautifully designed promenade with a food court, bars, beach facilities and a play park.

Just opposite the beach is a playing field where you can enjoy a game of cricket, soccer or basketball.


Sapphire Beach is a 15 minute drive from Grantley Adams Intl Airport or similar distance from Bridgetown. Located at the end of the St Lawrence Gap, you can easily walk to a great variety of restaurants, from Indian, Chinese, Italian or Bajan. A couple of bars are close enough that you can walk to and far enough so you won’t be bothered by them. Small grocery stores, banks, car rental, sport equip. rental and shopping is within walking distance so many travelers feel they don't need to rent.


Bridgetown offers, a good choice for duty free shopping and is a 15 minute drive. You'll find Milano Diamond Gallery and Diamonds Intl. There are a few small museums.

Fish fry at Oistins Bay Gardens is a must (3.1 km from Sapphire). Very popular, specially on Friday, with locals and tourists.

Pelican Craft Centre is great to check on local arts in St. Michael, north of Bridgetown.

Sheraton Mall (2.6 km) for shopping, movies, great food court.

Best of Barbados gift shop in the Gap

Further Details:

Dover Beach has mostly calm waters and is safe for swimming year-round. Water sport and other beach rental service providers such as SunFish and catamaran sailing, boogie board, snorkel, beach lounges and umbrella rentals to name a few. Getting anywhere is a short drive by comparison to most other travel destinations.The islands infrastructure are well developed.

It is Known for being safe and for the friendliness of its people so getting around and seeing the sights is recommended and locals will be happy to offer directions should you lose your way. Aside from renting a car, visitors can utilize the available public transportation of Government operated Mercedes coaches or the smaller privately owned buses and vans which can take you anywhere for no more than US$1.00 per trip. Bus stops are located along almost every road and in the case of Sapphire Beach are no more than five minutes' walk away.

Having a car is not necessary but if you want to rent one, a parking spot is available for you in the complex (within the secure area).

Oistins is an outdoors location 10 min drive from us and has a great market, bars, music, gift shopping and is popular with locals and visitors alike. North, along the coast you, will find Speightstown and Holetown boast a long and intriguing history. The scenery around the Crane area is spectacular. The island offers many activities from submarine and coastal catamaran trips to cave and historic plantation tours. For indoor shopping, the Sheraton Mall (2.6 km from Sapphire) for shopping, movies, great food court. Zip Line adventures where you glide in harness over one of the most scenic natural gullies on island.

Scuba diving and snorkeling are great has the fringes and reefs found off Barbados blossom with healthy sponges, coral and plant life. There are several types of reefs, each one unique in its own special way.

Groceries are Massy in Oistins and Big B in Worthing

It's Limin'Time!
