Alle Wohnungen in den Inchcape Seaside Villas stehen für Extravaganz in der Architektur.. 'Haus Seaside', Haus Sunset, The Seaside Cottages, das Garden Apartment und die Studios Coconut und Seaview vermitteln karibische Atmosphäre und sind mehr als nur ein Ort zum Verweilen. Die Unterkünfte vereinen eine exotische Mischung aus Geschmack und Gemütlichkeit eines alten karibischen Plantagen Hauses und sie dienen heute als schön gelegene Ferienwohnungen, direkt auf dem weißen Sandstrand von Silver Sands mit dem kristallklaren und türkisblauen Wasser des Karibischen Meeres. Die Inchcape Häuser werden eingerahmt von der karischen See auf der einen Seite und natürlichen Gärten mit tropischen Pflanzen und Bäumen auf der anderen Seite. Es gibt Holzdecks und Terrassen im Erdgeschoss und in den oberen Etagen, alle nur wenige Meter vom Strand entfernt, und bieten so eine atemberaubende und unverbaubare Aussicht auf das karibische Meer.
From the very beginning communication with the owner was quick and reliable. All our questions concerning booking procedures have been answered promptly and in full detail.
On arrival we have been met by an airport driver, a service organized by the Inchcape Seaside Villas´s management. At the premises we have been welcomed by the chief maid/manager on site Natalie who handled the check-in procedures explaining the various facilities available, among them also a very quick and reliable free WLAN, showing us around the compound. Whenever we had a request Natalie and the maids took care of it quickly and friendly, their service was first class. We had booked two studios, “Coconut” on the ground floor with a very well kept garden and “Seaview” above on the upper floor with a large terrace. Both of them consisting of very spacious bedroom/living room, a well equipped kitchen and a conveniently furnished bathroom.
It is only a few meters to the beach, but because of the strong tide and waves, perfect for surfers, we preferred to go swimming at the gentle “Miami Beach” in the very vivid village of Oistens, to be reached by a 10 minute drive by public mini bus. Since the Inchcape Seaside Villas are located in a somewhat remote area it is the perfect place to take a profound break from every day life. For entertainment we frequented the Surfer´s Beach Bar nearby which offers a small variety of dishes in the evening, accompanied by a sort of music.
Towards the end of our stay we eventually met the owners who themselves have been on holidays, out of Barbados. It was a pleasure meeting Wolfgang and Rosi, we had a chat in a very friendly atmosphere and we could assure them that they have created a very particular gem adorning a true Caribbean paradise.
Meine Frau und ich waren 1 Wochen dort und es war eine sehr gute Entscheidung. Das Appartement hat uns sehr gut gefallen und das Meer ist nur wenige Schritte entfernt. Der große Garten ist ein guter Platz zum chillen und sehr schön anzusehen. Die Vermieter sind sehr sehr nett und geben gute Tipps für den Aufenthalt auf Barbados. Man sollte sich auf jeden Fall einen Mietwagen nehmen um die Insel zu erkunden oder um einfach mal nach Oistins zum Fischmarkt zu fahren. Surfspots sind auch schnell zu erreichen.
Wir haben den Aufenthalt sehr genossen und werden hoffentlich nochmal wieder kommen.
The grounds, gardens and buildings are beautiful at Inchview, very well maintained...even nicer than the pictures online. Seaview was the perfect unit for 2, on the upper floor with a very large balcony ideal for watching the waves roll in. The unit was very comfortable, well-furnished and clean...perfect for a beach holiday. We did not get the opportunity to meet Wolfgang, but the rental process and correspondence was prompt and seamless. Staff at Inchcape were very friendly and willing to help. Short walk to the beach, if you enjoy playing in the waves then Silver Sands, Silver Point and Crane beach are ideal; Rockley Beach was perfect to catch the sunset. Car rental is a good idea if you plan on exploring the island; venture out to the North Point and Bathsheba for spectacular rugged views. Oistins Fish Fry on Friday is an event, also check out the Fish Pot Restaurant (St. Lucy), Surfer’s Bay Beach Bar (5 walk from Inchcape) and Café Luna (Oistins). Amazing get away!
Our first floor apartment, Seaview, gave us a delightful vista through the palm trees and down to the sea. You also look down onto the ground floor apartments’ garden and hammock below. The white, sandy beach is a 2 minute walk away. The colours in the warm turquoise waters are truly amazing, and being east facing, the Atlantic surf provides plenty of waves to play in; whether you’re a surfer, windsurfer, kite surfer or just want some fun. If you want a calmer, more serene paddle, Miami beach is just a short mini-bus ride away, and has a food and coffee stall on site as well as immaculately clean changing, shower and WC facilities.
The trade winds, and being on the first floor, negate the need for air conditioning in Seaview, which has 2 x glazed, double patio doors leading out onto a large balcony. There are also wooden plantation shutters on all the windows and doors which you can open or close. The balcony has a table, 2 chairs and two sunbeds as well as a wooden drying horse. You approach Seaview down a side entrance and up some wooden stairs. You enter through the small kitchen and then into the bedroom. The large bedroom, with a very comfortable double bed with simple white cotton sheets, has a high vaulted wooden ceiling with a fan. There is a table, 2 arm chairs, a TV and plenty of storage. The shower room is off to one side. The paint work, the cleanliness the whole ambience is 100% perfect, and has an overall very colonial, Caribbean feel. We couldn’t have been happier.
In summary, we loved Inchcape, we were delighted with Seaview and would be very happy to stay in Seaview again, but would also love to stay in Sunrise on our next visit. Oh yes, will there be a next visit? Oh yes there will. In another 25 years? No way. A soon as possible!
Seaview Apartment, on first floor, with a large balcony and views to die for, lovely beach to walk along pre breakfast on the balcony. Beach bar with good food (limited menu) good atmosphere, music (live on Thursdays and Sundays) other restaurants a taxi ride away The gardens are wonderful, with a choice of sunbeds, chairs, Cabana's and Hammocks lovely shade from palm trees, all accompanied by the sound of crashing waves, wonderful.
As stated above, we stayed in Seaview for 14 nights, great views, had the comany of a pair of Barbados Bullfinches (Sparkies to the locals) Humming birds zooming around the well tended gardens, we even saw Mongoose and Green Monkeys in the local area.
Didn't meat Wolfgang or Rosie apart from a phone call about the hire car he had booked for me. But very pleasant chat with him, and his staff were all very friendly. As standard you have your towels and bedding changed every 3 days, and room cleaned to a good standard. You will need $50 deposit for your safe key (safe a little on the small side, but adequate, just!....)
We walked into Oistins 2 or 3 times (about 2 miles, and easily do-able) Try the Fish Market and buy some Mahi Mahi, Tuna King Fish etc good prices and really tasty and fresh fish! Also Enterprise beach (Miami Beach to locals) $20 for 2 sunbeds, plenty of shade from trees on beach, Mr Delicious food "bus" does awesome Chicken Roti's and Banks beer is a MUST do!
All in all we had a wonderful time in this great accommodation, and would not hesitate to return.
I am coming back.
I'm going to Barbados on a regular basis, one of the reasons being because I found the perfect place to stay, the Inchcape Seaside Villas. Since I found this property, I always stay there and I've been equally highly satisfied in each visit.
From the property’s colonial style feeling to the cosy interiors without having to renounce on modern amenities, from the location right on the beach and not far from restaurants and entertainment, to the incredible friendliness and efficiency of the staff, this place is just amazing.
I can't wait to go back as I'm confident that it will be perfect again.
