Welcome to Upper Swanage. A charming, gingerbread cottage designed in keeping with the old Barbadian chattel house tradition, it is tastefully decorated and furnished to make it a definite home away from home. Situated right on a beautiful white sand beach, approximately 100 yards from the start of the new south coast boardwalk. In the other direction, enjoy a 1 mile beach walk to Needham's Point. Less than 2 miles south of Bridgetown. Close to fine restaurants and shops.
There are very few beach front apartments in Barbados that puts you this close to the sea. Relax on the patio, watch the spectacular sunsets, sip a drink and look down at the ocean literally at your feet.
This villa is very central located right on a public transport route but is also a very tranquil beach front location.
Renting a car is optional as there are many restaurants, shops, banking, tea & coffee houses, bistros & spas within walking distance of the apartment. You can take the public transport to the local grocery store & they will drop you back free of charge.
We just spent a week there. Philip was helpful and being close to the city was great. The house is lovely and at a great location as far as the beach is concerned. Unfortunately the close proximity to the road can make it difficult to sleep if it bothers you.
The accommodation were 2nd to none. It was our first time to Barbados to attend a wedding. We decided to look for a private beach spot close to the hotel where the rest of our friends stayed. It was the perfect beach spot and the envy of all family and friends. Tina was very helpful, responded quickly to inquiries and also organized a taxi pick up from the airport. We will definitely look to come back soon :-)
We think we stayed in the best place in Barbados - upper swanage looks over the sea complete with sea turtles, and towards the palm trees and sunset in the west. You could spend all day on the shady balcony in sea breeze watching the locals enjoying the sea pool and the beach, and fishermen throwing nets on the reef.Air conditioned bed rooms were essential and appreciated, and kitchen was really well equipped. philip and Tina really helpful.
best testimony is that we want to return!
The apartment ist beautiful at a very quite sandy beach. Everything was exactly as Philip and Tina had shown on the pictures.
We enjoyed our stay very much and would come back anytime!
Philip and Tina also organized a Taxi from the airport for us, went shopping with us and explained us everything.
I really enjoyed staying here! It's right on a very nice beach for swimming and spotting turtles, but also close to shops and many restaurants. Phillip was super helpful with everything. I would certainly recommend!
Our stay in the at the Upper Swanage cottage was wonderful! Tina and Philip are fantastic hosts and went the extra mile to help us whenever we asked. Their recommendations on where to eat and things to go do are spot on! Tina's cakes are yummy! One note, the bedrooms are the only rooms that are air conditioned -- the kitchen/living room area is not. There is a wonderful sea breeze being right on the water.
