Dover beach quiet home. 3 Bed 3 Bath. Near the Gap
Description from the owner
You will love your stay at Seagrass! Beaches, turtles, monkeys, birds. Peace and quiet. This is our home away from home and we are proud to offer it to our guests when we can't be there. We offer a very spacious newly constructed three bedroom, three bathroom townhouse with study located in Dover. It's a 5 minute walk to the long curve of white sand on Dover Beach (0.3 mile or 400m.) And the popular St. Lawrence Gap, the restaurant and entertainment hub of the island, is just one more block from there.
Newly furnished in a tropical style with bright colours, our home has a great ambience. In the ground floor living room, you will find a 41 inch Sony TV, cable and DVD, plus free Wireless internet. Adjacent to the living room is the study with futon and full bathroom. The large kitchen is fully equipped with stainless steel appliances, and a convenient washer and dryer for your use. Your indoor dining area is just off the kitchen near to the patio. Or, step outside onto the covered shady patio for morning coffee and enjoy a six seater teak dining table. Just ideal for taking your meals alfresco!
Upstairs you will find your master bedroom with en-suite bathroom, dressing table, and a full length mirror. Off the master, you can slip out onto a private patio to enjoy the ocean breeze and hear the surf on Maxwell Beach.
A second master-sized bedroom boasts more large closets, full length mirror, and dressing table. The third bedroom is bright and cheerful with large closet and dresser. These two bedrooms share a bathroom with walk-in shower. All bedrooms are air conditioned, have ceiling fans and ample closet space.
The house is very secure with security bars on all windows and iron gates for both the front and back doors allowing you to let breezes through when you're home and still have total peace of mind. An in-wall safe is provided for storing your valuables.
Everything you need is convenient to you within a short walk from Seagrass. We are on Third Avenue in Dover with a lovely quiet beach, a grocery market, and a taxi stand right at the end of our street. Two blocks in the other direction and you will be at the bus stop on the main road.
At the end of the street there is a small secluded beach called Rainbow Beach to watch the sunsets or surf. This is a turtle nesting beach where, in the fall, you can watch hatchlings run toward the sea! Turn left and you come to Maxwell Beach for body surfing and long walks. Turn right and within one block you find lovely Dover Beach, offering beach chair and umbrella rentals, watersports and kiosks selling local food and drink. All these beach choices within 5 minutes walk!
Shop for souvenirs and clothing in The Gap - just 4 blocks away. At night The Gap comes alive, offering live local entertainment from Jazz to Reggae and more, a myriad of restaurants both casual and fine dining. Tennis is available at 2 resorts in the neighbourhood. Golf within 3 miles. Public transport is readily available as well as taxis.
Our local property manager will be available to you 24/7 during your stay. She and her staff meet you at the house on your arrival and show you through everything. If you have any repairs or needs while staying with us, she is just a phone call away. She handles our rental arrangements so you will have a secure way to send your payments.

We really enjoyed staying in this holiday villa. It was quiet, we were a quick walk to a choice of terrific beaches and we rented a car to travel around the island. It was great to have Juliet come in and do a tidy and clean around throughout the stay as well, so thank you to her! We ate take aways, cooked and walked the short distance to some very good local restaurants. The villa is really nicely styled, the kitchen is well stocked with equipment and the outside area is charming. I would very much recommend a stay here. I've ticked the excellent value box for this property as compared with all the other properties I looked at it is well priced - however Barbados is expensive for property prices.
Thank you for mentioning the lovely Juliette who works so hard to keep our house spotless!
You are right that Barbados can cost a bit more. We think it's well worth it. It's far enough south in the Caribbean to be reliably hot and sunny. No cool rainy vacations here! And the people of the island are wonderful. Barbados is stable, clean and has low crime rates. A great place to enjoy a holiday!

"loved it so much we stayed another week!"
Left on 10/24/2013 for a stay in October 2013 | A FlipKey verified reviewerReviewed Oct 24, 2013Stayed Oct 2013
Seagrass was a wonderful place to stay and enjoy what Barbados has to offer. It was comfortable, clean, equipped with everything we needed to cook - however the restaurants and take aways were at times too enticing. The location was perfect with a couple of minutes walk to Dover beach, a 15 minute drive to the airport, short walk to the infamous Gap with it's vendors, restaurants, and bars.
The neighbouring beaches each had something to offer - at the end of the street the beach was a nesting ground for Hawksbill turtles which were in their hatching period while we were there. At night we would go to the beach and help the baby turtles find their way to safety under the moonlight...an incredible experience. a minute from this beach is Dover - a beautiful stretch of clean soft sand that was perfect for swimming, sunbathing, sunsets and sipping Banks:)
Dear Tina and Phil. Thank you for posting your review. It warms our hearts to hear how much you enjoyed Barbados and Seagrass. What an emotional experience it is to see the turtles hatching. You are so lucky to have caught this. We really love that little beach and wander down there almost every night. It's great to sit and watch the ocean with a glass of wine or a rum punch!
So glad you enjoyed your time. Come again some time soon!
"Perfect for our group"
Left on 02/28/2013 for a stay in February 2013 | MCSReviewed Feb 28, 2013Stayed Feb 2013
We had a group of 6 for a bachelorette/30th birthday party weekend. The house was perfect for us. It's clean and modern with plenty of space. The master bedroom and bathroom are gorgeous (and very large) and the other rooms are very nice as well. We loved the patio in the back and started and ended every day either with coffee or nightcaps out there. It was really nice to have all that common space for our group, rather than divide up into hotel rooms.
Just at the end of the block is a deli/market, as well as access to a gorgeous beach. You can also walk to St. Lawrence Gap very easily. Overall, this place was a great value and we would stay again!
I'm so glad you enjoyed your time at Seagrass! It is wonderful fun to be together in a comfortable home rather than hotel rooms. And it sounds like you found Rainbow Beach! It is a beautiful little hidden gem. I do hope you will come again. Thanks for taking the time to write your review.

We've been vacationing in Barbados for over 10 years now and this was the best experience yet. The minute I walked into Sea Grass I knew I had arrived at a very special place - a place to call our own! It is very well appointed, beautifully decorated - in such a comfortable calming way.
The location is fabulous. The biggest decisions of the day is which of the three beautiful beaches (within easy walking distance) to choose for a morning swim or to end the day watching the sunset.
The neighbourhood is quiet, safe and relaxed, with conveniences such as the local farmer selling his produce on the side of the road, to the convenience grocer and one of the best Bajan cooking take aways! Seagrass + Dover make for a perfect Barbados getaway!
It sounds like you found your way around the neighbourhood to all the best places. Hopefully you also found the barista at the end of the street and enjoyed a great Cappuccino! It is very gratifying to hear that a regular visitor to the island had such a great experience in our home. We hope you will come again. Thanks for your review!

"Simply the best way to do Barbados!"
Left on 05/01/2012 for a stay in December 2011 | A FlipKey verified reviewerReviewed May 1, 2012Stayed Dec 2011
My stay at the beautiful Seagrass Villa was my first non-hotel and non-resort experience, and after having spent such a heavenly week there, I would not hesitate one instant to return. I highly recommend it. There simply is no better way to do Barbados! It definitely delivers on all 3 L's for an excellent vacation getaway: Location, Location, Location... a 3 minute walk from seeing breathtaking sunrises and sunsets at the beach... 2 street blocks from tennis courts and a coffee shop... a grocery store with a nice selection of wines and liquor at the street corner, as well as vendors selling fresh fruits and vegetables daily just down the street... Make sure you go to Oistins and enjoy the delicious catch of the day at annie's Grill, catch a game at Bert's Bar, go to the horse races, shop along the boardwalk, enjoy the night life. Warning to all hot sauce lovers: Barbados has the most delicious hot sauce, so make sure to leave room in your luggage to bring some back! Seagrass also excels on the 3 C's of vacation housing: comfortable, cozy, and clean! The pictures definitely do accurately reflect the property's appeal. With 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, a large kitchen, a comfortable living room with flatscreen TV, a covered patio to enjoy outdoor meals, there is plenty of room for families or a group of friends. See for yourself! You will not regret it. Whether you want outdoor adventures or just want to soak up the sun while reading a book, Seagrass is the perfect way to do Barbados!
Thank you for the wonderful review. We are really thrilled that you enjoyed your stay so much. You really did find your way around to a lot of the great attractions. And I know how wonderful it feels to return to the comfortable calm of Seagrass after a hot day out and about. A dip in the ocean and a stroll back to the patio for a cocktail. Heaven!
We hope you will return soon.

I was lucky enough to stay a week in this wonderful house.
If your the type of person who is not interested in staying with the majority of tourists and want something a little more private and quiet, yet still luxurious and affordable this place is for you.
A very short walk to a variety of beaches and some of the most active night life on the whole island.
