“So bald we found this amazing place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 November 2013

While most people run to hotels, I was so glad we thought outside the box and opted for a home-away-from-home for our first trip to Barbados. Not only was I blown away by the friendly people on the island, in general, our vacation was definitely topped off by our amazing accommodations at White Sands.

Everything was impeccable and in great condition. We walked across the street to the local grocer, stocked our refrigerator and enjoyed every moment of cooking for ourselves. On one occasion, we even hired a local cook to make a Bajan Breakfast for us. What a treat!

The only downside to our vacation was the construction noise coming from a unit a few doors away from ours. While we were notified the day before our arrival that the there would be some noise, we were told it would stop the day after our arrival. It didn't ! It probably went on long after our six night stay. It also started early in the morning--say 8 am and went on throughout the day. Not ideal when you slip away to the Caribbean to lose track of time…only to be awaken by construction noise

That aside, we couldn't have asked for a better place to call home. White Sands has spoiled s so much that we can't even imagine renting a hotel for travel more than three days.

I also loved the presence of onsite security at nights and the speedy response of the staff whenever we called.

Would highly-recommend White Sands!

Room Tip: We enjoyed the one bedroom, but would absolutely return just to have the three bedroom condo facing...

Stayed here in august 2013 and the apartments are great. Got a free upgrade to a 2 bed apartment. So much space and really well equipped with washing machine, smeg appliances etc. Sea view was great and beach at the end of the pathway is gorgeous. Saw turtles there as an extra bonus. Staff incredibly helpful and well informed. Close to all the facilities of St Lawrence Gap.

Room Tip: Villa H was great

My wife and I just got back from our honeymoon in Barbados where we stayed at the White Sands Beach Villas, it was awesome. The owners went out of their way for us. Our flight came in late on Sunday evening so we didn't arrive there till 10:15pm. Even though it was late and not their job to, one of the staff graciously offered to drive us to the store so we could pick up some essentials. He took the scenic route there in order to give us a mini tour to help us become familiar with the area. He also took us to a restaurant in an effort to get an after-hours bite to eat. Overall everyone that works there went out of their way for us and were exceptionally kind. We were in Villa T which is on the backside but still has a view of the ocean. The great balcony allowed us to view the street too, which we liked. The interior of the places are very nice and much better than staying in a hotel since our unit had a full kitchen, living room, 2 bathrooms, sizable bedroom, large closet & washer/dryer combo unit. The location of the place is great too because it is within walking distance of many bars/restaurants. It is also right across the street from a mini grocery store. The beach was beautiful and right next door (100 yrds away) there is a beach bar which was great for grabbing a quick drink. Some of the units are owned by individuals. We met one owner couple who were also awesome and made us feel at home. I have traveled all over the world and stayed at many nice places but I truly can't say enough about how great WSB is and Barbados is in general, it was truly memorable.

Another great stay at WSB - this time in the one bed Villa M (last year - Villa K) which has a west facing balcony rather than direct views over sea. This meant we could enjoy some great sun worshipping in the late afternoons when the balcony got the best of the sun!
It's a great base, and within a 5 minute walk of the main places to eat in St Lawrence Gap (Harlequin, Pisces, JJ Cools) as well as opposite Dover mini-mart - although you do have to watch some of the prices esp as you're self-catering - it's almost cheaper up eat out.
We generally waded past the rocks to nearby Dover Beach, but we did spend a great day at Barry's Surf School 25m to the left of WSB, and even closer was Tyrone's Bar on the beach which was a relaxing way to start and/or end the evening, whether with a cool bottle of Banks or Rum punch or Piña Colada!
About the building - it's very nicely proportioned - even the one bed apts don't feel small at all with two bathrooms, open plan kitchen, etc. In two visits tho we still haven't used the pool at the foot of the building - in fact i've never seen anyone in it - but it's a nice splash pool if you need it after the beach etc.
The only thing about the apts nearer the road than the beach is that Scotty's Bar (in front of WSB facing the street) can sometimes play loud music quite late. But to be honest, it was only a problem the first night and then we either "tuned it out" or it finished earlier as sleeping wasn't a problem in the comfortable rooms after the first night.
As mentioned in other reviews, Gabriele Cummins (the property manager) is great, and very helpful.
Overall we really enjoyed our stay at WSB again and will probably return - might try a different apt next time or return to Villa K! Either way - it's a great option if you want to avoid set hotel meals, have the flexibility and freedom to enjoy breakfast, lunch, or a Banks on a large balcony, find a new venue for dinner within walking distance, whilst enjoying great views and the sound of the surf from the sunny balconies!
We'll be back.

We had a great stay at White Sands Beach Villa K in Feb. 2013. Condo was as described, very roomy, full of amenities, very large balcony right on the beach. Wi-Fi, cable worked fine. There were detailed instructions to everything and there was an extensive library of movies although we didn’t use them. The location was very convenient with Dover market across the street and taxis readily available nearby. We scheduled taxis and tours and were amazed by the punctuality as we were never left waiting. We didn’t feel the need to have a car. It is a 15 minute walk to the restaurants at the other end of the Gap or a $10 taxi van.
The beach was never crowded and watching the surfing school students from next door was very entertaining. The ocean bottom is rocky with coral out front but it was smooth and not sharp and didn’t cause us a problem. Dover beach which does have a sandier ocean floor was easily accessible next door. Speaking to other tourists about their accommodations confirmed what a great value WSBV is. Check-in and check-out were very smooth and the property managers are friendly and very helpful. Phil the owner was easy to work with and very responsive.
Having visited many Caribbean Islands we found the people of Barbados to be the friendliest and most helpful. We ate at Pisces, Harlequins and Southern Palms enjoying all. The Saturday night buffet at Southern Palms was a great meal upon arrival with no dinner plans. We did three tours, (1) all day taxi tour of the island, (2) powerboat snorkel adventure with the sea turtles and shipwreck snorkel with beach time and lunch, (3) zipline and 4x4 tour. All were good and well worth the time and expense. I would definitely recommend WSBV and look forward to our next visit.

Room Tip: The two bedroom units are ocean front. One bedroom are side building ocean view.

Just returned from a weeks stay in a 2 bed apartment, very good quality with all the necessary appliances , dishwasher, washer dyer, laundering etc, side of building but fab view of the sea from balcony, very spacious rooms, spotless and maid comes every 2/3 days, towels provided, close to supermarket and bars, nice secluded beach but rocks in the sea, beach bar at tyrones who are very friendly and sociable, small pool not really for swimming more plunging, sun beds provided but you need to put them on the beach yourself which isn't a big deal but would be nice if you could be assisted with them, recommended for quality apartments, front view even better.

This place is nice, period. Spend extra for the 2 bedrooms they have the best views. Gabrielle is a nice lady and George is cool too but opinionated. That said this is not a hotel so be prepared, also where it's located is not the best, the beach is rocky and has sand traps. The street side is not great either but to be honest the gap itself is not that great. If you want resort style feel go to the crane or oceans two. But this villa is world class once your there and a nice beach is a 5 minute walk on the street in either direction. If you have to stay at the gap this is place
