Had a wonderful holiday in every way. Beautiful Barbados weather throughout and the perfect place to stay. The apartment is beautifully decorated, so comfortable and well equipped. Truly a home away from home. Everyone so friendly and helpful. Perfect location, cool, overlooking the beach and the clear blue sea. The well known St Lawrence Gap is a minutes walk - a "must to visit". Within a 10-15 minute walk through, there are numerous restaurants and bars to choose from and shops where you can buy local merchandise including "Bajan food" - Delicious!!!! Car not required. We will be back and already looking forward to that.

Great location, but find something better

  • 1 of 5

The location of villa was great, few minutes away from nightlife & restaurants. The villa itself is not luxurious, none of the TVs worked during my 5 day stay. Air conditioning wasn’t blowing cold air. Furniture & appliances was wear & tear. Back porch ceiling fan had huge chip, which after my stay the owner tired to make me pay for! Knowing that’s how she handed the home over to me. You would need a ladder to even reach the ceiling fan on the porch, it turns on from inside. I didn’t complain not once about the villa to owners. You get what you pay for, but for her to try and make money off me after my visit was disgusting. I took care of the home as if it was my own, very disappointed she would accuse me of chipping a high ceiling fan that was clearly there before me. The security at the gates of this villa changes everyday, but they’re very rude to guest. Never got chance to use the pool, but It looked nice, beach entrance right next to it. Housekeepeing only came once during my 5 night stay. If your looking for luxury & respectful security find something different. If your looking for convenient location & the chance of being accused of damaging something to be scammed out of money then hey

Owner's Response: Well, I am quite disappointed with the review. But, After reports received after my guest’s stay, I am not surprised of this review. It seems that after 7 years of guests at my holiday unit, with great reviews, that all of a sudden we will get it, as reported, so wrong. We have always made service to guests our priority, and responded to any issues quickly, and pride ourselves in insuring that the unit is fully intact and functional at all times After having discussions with my unit manager, we will be looking at the best ways to proceed with approving the use of our unit to such groups (6-8 persons). The use of the contact info to my unit manager, would have resolved any issues that came up during your stay. Hope that any of your future holiday experiences will be more positive. Regards David Hamilton

Always return to paradise

  • 5 of 5

Having visited Barbados many times and have used cheaper accommodation self-catering and also all inclusive, we watched Sapphire Beach being built. We decided that we would like to stay at Sapphire Beach not only for the location but also the fact that the Apartments are luxury apartments. We were not disappointed, the apartment is fully fitted with every amenities, breakfast on the balcony overlooking the sea, cannot be beaten, sitting on the comfortable loungers on the balcony at any time of the day overlooking the pool, gardens and sea is very relaxing. The apartment lives up to the description, everyone is welcoming and friendly, cannot wish for anything more, we would recommend it to anyone.

Barbados is beautiful, hot and vibrant with colour

  • 5 of 5

Barbados is beautiful, hot and vibrant with colour. The sea water was very warm in February and the sun extremely powerful. It is an Island surrounded blue water and white sands. A perfect combination!

Our unit was beautiful, air-conditioned, well equipped and had a specular view of the ocean and pool. We arrived late at night and encountered no hiccups. It is fully air-conditioned if you prefer, or just open the sliding doors onto the refreshing see breeze.

Our Condo was very spacious and even with six adults – there was no encroaching on anyone else. Sitting on the balcony in the mornings is to me the best part of the vacation, listening to the waves and watching beach come alive. Two rooms had en-suite bathrooms and the third bedroom had a bathroom next to it. The access to the beach is easy and the beach furniture is available at a very low rental costs. If you prefer the pool – the furniture is part of the complex.

At St. Lawrence Gap, grocery shopping is available within walking distance as well as further into town (10 minutes) if you so desire. You can either cook your own meals or walk around “The Gap” to find something local to eat. The food is safe and absolutely delicious. We wanted to hire a chef for two nights to who cooked local dishes for us. We purchased the ingredients required and he cooked, served us and cleaned up after –it was perfect! All arranged by the condo representative – Trudy Gibbs.

At the “Gap” local cooking is available at any time as well as fancier restaurants. Every restaurant or café was very clean and service was great. Casual strolls, no matter what hour of the day or night will find you good food and lively music. We were totally relaxed walking around, which is refreshing change from hotel resorts. The shops are quaint and very reasonable. No matter where you walked the ocean was always right there!

Owner's Response: It is great to hear of such a positive experience while being guests in such a beautiful location and country. As described, all amenities are within walking distance and secure in its environs and across the country. It was great to see the appreciation expressed on the representative's help and accessibility when arriving and during your stay. This goes a long way in continuing excellence of our service. I cannot explain it more beautifully, than that expressed above, of the location, unit and island. Many thanks for your review. Location, the greatest asset for a perfect holiday!

Convenience and Comfort in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Once you've made the smart decision to visit Barbados, look no further! This apartment is in excellent shape, well appointed, secure, exclusive, on prime beach-front and in a convenient location.

After 2 trips here, I look forward to the next...

The beach is semi-exclusive, white sands with crystal turquoise waters. On both trips sightings of sea turtles were common. There are chairs and umbrellas available to rent at reasonable rates. With the beach bar close by all you need is sunscreen, a towel and some shades to block the abundant sun.

The apartment is located on the St. Lawrence Gap (research will tell you that's the place to be) and has bars, nightlife, restaurants, groceries, some shopping and even a car rental all in walking distance. It is also only 20 minutes from the airport and a just a few minutes from the popular Oistins Fish Market.

The apartment has everything you need to relax, cook, entertain and make the most of your stay. Split with a few couples, it is far more value than a hotel and lots more comfortable. With the grocery close by, you can't go wrong. If the pictures haven't sold you on the place, nothing I write here will.

If you can pull yourself away from the beach, my opinion is that the best restaurant on the gap is Pisces, but there are about a dozen others to choose from in the vicinity. The nightlife varies depending on the season and the night. The large park across the street is always humming with football and cricket matches. Friday nights are the nights to go to Oistins for seafood, music and local crafts.

At the end of the day, about the only thing missing is my return ticket to go back. You can't go wrong staying here.

Owner's Response: It is always great satisfaction to hear that guests have enjoyed themselves at our place, no matter the length of stay. I could not have described and said it better, the way you have put across your enjoyment of the unit and it's location, I could use your review as an advertisement.! It is all, as you describe it. Great and Thanks.!

Best Vacation Ever

  • 5 of 5

A modern, comfortable, tastefully decorated appartment with exceptional security measures in place. From the balcony one overlooks a sprawling tropical garden with 2 pools which leads on to an amazing beach and turquoise blue sea with numerous water sport activities.

We had an amazing holiday in absolute paradise.
