We recently returned from a 10 day stay in Barbados. The condo unit was fabulous and the location could not have been better. Did not need a car and could get everywhere on foot or by the bus, which was a lot of fun to take. The people of Barbados are wonderful and very friendly and helpful. The scenery and beaches can't be beat. I want to thank Rob and Katherine for all their help in making our stay so great. I would highly recommend staying here and am hoping to come back in the future. I am missing Barbados already as it is a wonderful island.
We traveled to Barbados from Washington State to spend a week with my wife's sister and husband from Bordeaux. So glad we chose this condo. The facility is top notch and the location is superb. In fact the beach out front is one of the best we found. Other good beaches to check out include Crane beach and Bottom Bay on west and Paynes Bay up north. We did the Cool Runnings catamaran cruise and would recommend without reservations. The condo is spacious and the big deck is great. Awesome views from the 4th floor too. Another nice thing is being able to walk through the Gap to go to dinner. We liked Harlequin, Crave (live jazz and 2 for 1 cocktails until 8PM) and Sharkeys (good fish cakes). This is such a better choice and value than paying for two hotel rooms. In fact we walked through the Bougainviella resort (not too far away) where we considering staying and all agreed the Sapphire Beach condo is much nicer. Orissa, Greg and Lauren from the management company were all very helpful and friendly. Rob the owner was very helpful too, but it would be much easier for renters is they could accept credit cards or Paypal instead of wire transfer. Maybe this is how it's usually handled in the UK (?)
A couple final comments:
We rented a car, which is great for exploring the island, but take note: street signs are virtually non-existent on the island so you need either a GPS or a good map and route-finding skills.
The Oistins Friday fish party is quite a scene but it does cause quite a traffic jam and it felt a bit touristy.
We have recently returned from another great stay at this fabulous apartment on lovely Barbados!
The location is excellent with a nice beach immediately outside and some very good restaurants just a short stroll away in St Lawrence Gap.
Very good help in advance from the owners, Rob and Tony, and from Orissa at Rex Realty.
We (3 couples) just got back from 2 weeks in beautiful Barbados. What you see is what you get; the pictures in the listing look great, well you won't be disappointed ! The unit is in great shape and well appointed, the views and landscaping are truly spectacular ! Owners are great to deal with, everything went very smooth and as agreed.
The beach is beautiful as we expected, however the location is more prime than we had anticipated. Everything (restaurants, live entertainment, market, ATM etc) truly is within walking distance, local bus transport is just up the street (efficient and inexpensive) and taxis are usually available at property entrance.
This was our first time in Barbados and although we like to try new places (this is the sixth caribbean island that we visit) I expect we will be returning to this one, and when we do, this property will be our first choice. We highly recommend !
Thanks to Robert, Lauren and Orissa for taking good care of us, we had a wonderful vacation and look forward to an eventual return !

This was a shorf family vacation with adult chldren. Perfect location, perfect beach, great people (owner and staff) and the pictures are just the beginning. The condo is wonderful for family talks and breakfast - who cooks dinner on a vacation??? Just a short walk to The Gap and all of the great dining - be sure to go to Rush, new and really great!
If you can get to Barbados, stay here!
Like the last review said if there is availability for this apartment then book right away! We were lucky enough to get this place for the week and are so pleased we did, we couldn't have wished for more perfect accommodation. Apartment is exactly as described and the pictures are exactly what you see, although they don't do justice to this beautiful condo.
We were 4 adults, one child aged 8 and (very active) twins aged two and we had no problem with the fact that it was on the 5th floor, kids were perfectly safe playing on the balcony (with our supervision of course!) and the living area is very spacious. The apartment is easily accessed via the elevator. We were happy knowing the fact that the grounds are secure and only key holders can access the building and pool area. The rooms are fully air conditioned and all have ceiling fans too, they are very spacious (loved the walk in wardrobes!) and more importantly for me, clean! The beds were huge and very confortable. The location is spot on, situated on Dover Beach and although in St Lawrence Gap we were away from the hustle and bustle of bars and restaurants, but close enough to walk to.
I can't praise this condo enough, it was everything we needed in a holiday and would not hesitate to come back here again.
