Romance-seekers: look no further than Watercolours, a one-bedroom, two-bath corner condo poised three floors above the sea in the St. Lawrence Gap, Barbados. Tuck into your own glass-enclosed nest with your sweetheart and spend late mornings in a luxury king-sized bed. Two floor-to-ceiling windows meet at a right angle in this spectacular corner bedroom, so a 270-degree view of the sea is all yours—from moonlit night to Technicolor morning. Or read side-by-side on a lounging couch in an enclosed patio that, when you open the sea-view window running the length of the wall, lets in warm Caribbean breezes and the hush of rolling waves. Then prepare a terrific meal in your compact kitchen outfitted in stainless steel and stocked with all appliances, cookery, and dinnerware you could possibly need. The market is a short stroll away, so you can easily get all the ingredients you need to cook at your home away from home. But why cook when the street right outside is lined with fabulous restaurants. WHAT MAKES WATERCOLOURS SPECIAL? This is our own personal home, which we rent when we’re traveling or visiting our families. For that reason, Watercolours has all the spotlessness, inviting décor and comfortable furnishings of a personal home (because it is!), and it provides absolutely everything you need to feel as at home here as we are. We chose the name Watercolours because of the hues that greet you when you step through the door—from the artwork and designer furnishings in shades of blue, beige and gold, to the dazzling sapphire sea. This spot, on the southern shore of Barbados, is where the Atlantic meets the Caribbean and the result combines the colors of paradise with the energy and white-capped waves of the Atlantic. ABOUT THE LOCATION At Watercolours, you’ll be within an easy walk to all of the St. Lawrence Gap’s authentic local restaurants, shops, and a grocer, plus a 7-minue walk to two great beaches. Or swim from the very private beach outside the condo. Save the money and hassle of renting a car and take a $20 taxi (with tip) from the airport to the condo, and then walk everywhere or catch the $2 island shuttle. The oceanfront here at Watercolours is a perfect little halfmoon of a beach, just big enough for entry into the bath-warm water where you might even enjoy the company of a giant, gentle sea turtle. And there’s a swimming pool on the property, too, for humans-only swimming. At sunset, enjoy the gold and pink skies as you watch the setting sun from the island's only privately owned jetty in your back yard. If Watercolours is unavailable for the dates you’re traveling, I would be happy to show you other beautiful seafront Barbadian condos in the St. Lawrence Gap. Please contact me and let’s start planning your vacation to Barbados :) All best regards, Jane Shattuck
