Life's A Beach - Coral Cove 8

Overview
Condo/Apartment -
3 Bedrooms , 3 Bathrooms , Sleeps 6
Paynes Bay, Saint James Parish, Barbados
Life's a Beach is located in the beautiful Coral Cove condo on the beach with great views of the sea and beach-life. There are three large well-appointed luxury bedrooms, three high quality bathrooms, an open-plan kitchen/lounge area which has slide away doors onto a balcony which stretches the whole property.

Built-in air conditioning is in all rooms.

The staff at Coral Cove maintain the beach area in front of the building - there are ample sunbeds and umbrellas which always seem to be the...

This was our first time in Barbados and wish we could have stayed longer at the apartment. From the initial contact with Tim and the ease of booking directly with him, Young Estates who met us on arrival and the most pleasant and helpful housekeeper,...More

About the neighbourhood
The Paynes Bay beach is generally considered the best beach on the 'platinum' west coast of Barbados. The walk along the beach is very good - particularly first thing in the morning. Turning right, you can walk up past the Sandy Lane hotel. Turning left you can walk past the House hotel and Daphne's restaurant. I would guess there is about a mile of beach until you have to get your feet wet and paddle to the next bit.

Restaurants in Barbados are superb. Within nighttime walking distance are Daphne's and Scarlet. In Barbados, the pavements are slightly dodgy, but if you are ok with that, the Cliff, Cariba and the restaurants at the Sandy Lane are also walkable - within about half a mile. Just consult, the brochures in the condo for many others - don't miss the sh...

Getting around
When we visit Barbados, we always get a hire car as we like the freedom to potter around - I can get you a 10% discount with Stoutes. However, buses are fun and frequent- every 5 mins from the front of the apartment and only cost 1USD to anywhere. Our friendly security staff can easily organise taxis for you to go anywhere on the island or to restaurants etc. Our apartment is directly on the beach so often guests have a car for a few days during their visit.
Access
Car advised
How to get there
Airport: Grantley Adams: 15.0 km
Ferry: Bridgetown: 7.0 km
Firstly, fly to Barbados. Typically, from London Gatwick, JFK or Toronto. Sothebys (West Coast Villas) our property managers can organise for airport pickups - in which case no problem. If you are hiring a car at the airport, then just follow the ABC Highway all the way to the D'Arcy Scott roundabout where you will turn right onto the Ronald Mapp Highway. After about 2-3 miles or so, on the left will be the Sandy Lane Country club and there is a road off to the left marked to Highway 1. Take this down to the end and you will hit Highway 1. Go left and about half a mile on the right will be Coral Cove - just after the large and very luxurious One Sandy Lane development. If you come to a petrol station you have gone to far.
