About the property

Luxury On Top of the World: 3BR 3BA with stunning panoramic Caribbean Sea views

The Rooftop Penthouse in the St Lawrence Beach Condominiums offers superior comfort with unrivaled Caribbean Sea views; this is one of the prettiest apartments on the south coast of Barbados. 

 Located on the top of the 17-unit St Lawrence Beach Condominiums in the heart of Barbados' coveted St Lawrence Gap, this stunning 3-bedroom penthouse offers a luxurious stay in the liveliest area of the Caribbean island known as 'The Jewel of the Caribbean' for very good reason. 

 The balcony of your exclusive penthouse is your private oasis on which to sun, lounge, soak in your private hot tub, cook the fish you caught earlier that day on your BBQ, and entertain & dine elegantly or casually, as you wish - all with one of the most beautiful sea views you'll find anywhere on earth. 

Indoors, elegance surrounds you with a soaring living/dining room ceiling and beautiful furnishings, fabulous indoor/outdoor kitchen, & enormous flat-screen tv. At the end of a day spent enjoying the sea and island sights, retreat to one of three bedrooms, two with fabulous sea views and each with its own bathroom. 


Lined with restaurants galore, colorful little shops, a convenient small market and two large white sandy beaches, the St Lawrence Gap ensures you won't need a rental car in order to have a fantastic vacation. In your gorgeous penthouse apartment, you are high above the world, truly away from it all. And yet you have easy access to the life of the island anytime you want it, just steps outside your front door. 


Known as the "Jewel of the Caribbean," Barbados boasts the most repeat visitors of any of the Caribbean islands. If you've been to the island, you know why - and if you haven't, you're in for a treat. Barbados is a safe, beautiful, and friendly tropical paradise with some of the most beautiful beaches in the world and a climate that's ideal. 

For families, couples, and friends traveling together, Barbados offers lots to do -- or the perfect lazy holiday, as you wish. 


o Swim with our giant sea turtles! 

o Go to the Oistins Fish Fry on Friday nights for live music and fabulous fresh fish out on the beach. 

o Explore the fascinating Harrison's Cave 

o Visit the east coast of Barbados (Bathsheba is the name of the town you want) and take in the magnificence and power of nature as you watch the mighty waves of the Atlantic Ocean crash against the shore. 

o See the lesser-known island charms by taking an island jeep safari 

o Take a catamaran cruise to find all the best snorkeling spots 

o Marvel at our crystal clear sea and brilliant, aqua blue sea. 

o Drink rum! Rum's a religion in Barbados 

o Dine at our many fabulous restaurants (many within steps of your penthouse accommodations)

About Barbados Beach Vacation Rentals

I'm a Colorado girl who married a Barbadian and am fortunate enough to get to live in beautiful Barbados. We own two beachfront properties on the south coast of the island and I represent other owners' places for rent as well, such as this stunning Rooftop Penthouse in the St Lawrence Beach Condominiums.

Why Barbados Beach Vacation Rentals chose Christ Church

What's not to love? This gorgeous place offers sea views that rival any in all of the Caribbean. The apartment offers lots of privacy for up to six guests and the benefit of having a patio that wraps around 2 sides of the property can't be overstated - it's outdoor living high above the sea, with perfect privacy to enjoy your private seaside hot tub, BBQ grill, lounging in the sun, catching up on that great novel you've packed.

What makes this condo unique

Walk to a dozen fantastic restaurants, two large beaches (Dover and Sandy beaches), talk to the friendly locals, enjoy our famous flying fish ... then a nice catamaran cruise, snorkeling with our elegant giant sea turtles. Or do nothing more than work on your suntan. You don't get to vacation often and Barbados offers whatever sort of holiday you want. Enjoy! And let me know how I can help you design the vacation that's right for you. Jane

average rating of 4.3333335 based on 9 reviews

Wonderful unit in a nice building. Location not so good because of loud music.

  • 3 of 5

We had a great time. We decided to rent a higher end unit in The Gap so the three 19/20 year old kids could party it up and we old farts could enjoy some comfort. The unit, deck, views and people we very nice. The hot tub didnt work often and this was disappointing. I read about this in previous reviews and hoped it would be fixed. Unfortunately I dont think the owner is commited to fixing the tub but still advertises it. Also, if you need quiet to sleep, the street side bedroom is useless. Very loud music goes until 4am. Hence the 3 star rating. Ricardo, our contact and the building manager was terrific. Plenty of good food and drink a short walk or cab ride away.

Barbados Family Vacation

  • 4 of 5

Jane was a an absolute pleasure to book with. Very helpful from booking to checkout, excellent recommendations and always returning calls and emails promptly. The location of the penthouse was perfect for us, within walking distance to beaches and restaurants giving us a great opportunity to explore the St Lawrence Gap area. Amazing view from the deck, dining room, living room and 2 out of the 3 bedrooms. The penthouse is quite well appointed but could use a little updating. Overall a great place for a group of 5-6 to stay while enjoying the friendly honest Bajan people and the beauty of the island. Thank you Jane!

Fair to good.

  • 2 of 5

The apartment was very nice but I would never stay there again because of the noise from the night club across the street. Very loud music blasting till 2:30 - 3:00 in the morning is a little too much. Had I known that in advance I would not have booked the apartment. The maids were very nice. Jerry the night doorman charged one of the cab drivers to come into the parking lot to discharge some guess who came to see us. Not very professional in my opinion. All in all we enjoyed our vacation but sadly I can not in good conscience recommend your building to anyone who may travel to Barbados in the future.

Owner's Response: Richard, I just read your review. And I forwarded it to the two gentlemen who own the St Lawrence Beach Condos. I'm so very sorry you were not happy. I agree with you that the music was terrible early this month. Like you, I was also furious. Years ago, we (our building) took the owner of that place to court to have his liquor license removed if he didn't calm down the music - and he did quiet the music, very nicely, and for the past several years he's been a great neighbor. Just recently it's been loud again over there. I don't know what's going on with him but it's tremendously disheartening for me, as a person who owns two units in the building and who lives there, too. We are again taking legal action against them. I'm very very sorry you had to have your vacation upset by that racket. Best regards and wishing you many future wonderful travels, Jane Shattuck Hi Jane, Thank you for responding to my review. Please don't misunderstand me, my family and I all had a fabulous vacation and we were all happy with our apartments. Our penthouse suite was a favorite spot for our group to meet and eat. The young folks loved the hot tub and we all loved the great view and magnificent sunsets. The loud music for those in the front bedrooms were the only issue. If you can at least limit the music to a more reasonable level or get them to stop it by midnight we would all gladly return to the condos in two years for our next planned trip to Barbados. Please keep me updated on your progress with the loud music. Fix that and we will be back. Thanks again for your time. Respectfully, Rick

Amazing Penthouse!

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful condo! There is an excellent amount of space. The bedrooms are separated in a way that works well for couples sharing the condo. The views are breathtaking and the convenience (in St. Lawrence Gap) is hard to beat. We have stayed in this building multiple times and have always had a great experience. In addition to the condo being beautiful, the folks that help coordinate your reservations and take care of you during your stay are superb (Jane & Ricardo). If you are reading this review, stop reading and BOOK YOUR STAY NOW! You won't regret it.

Great location & everything we needed!

  • 5 of 5

The Penthouse at St Lawrence Beach Condos gave my family & I everything we were looking for - and more! The layout was perfect for a family with three teenagers - plenty of space indoors and a huge deck with hot tub outside! Plenty of bars and restaurants in walking distance (we had one on crutches) that served delicious food and cold drinks! Penthouse was well stocked with everything we needed and staff/management was very friendly & helpful. Would definitely stay here again!

This unit is spacious and by far the best condo that I have ever stayed in! As previous reviewers have expressed the photos does not capture all of the beauty the views. We opened up the unit to the rooftop deck every day to take in the sea breeze and star gaze. Sometimes,we ate out at local restaurants (that were literally steps away from the condo), cooked meals in the full kitchen or barbecued on the deck. Also, we enjoyed the hot tub and listed to the music from the clubs below and enjoyed virgin pina coladas.

We were had expected more people but were a family of 5 ages 8-67 years old and there was something to do on the island that interest each of us. I would like to thank Jane Shattuck and her staff ! Jane made our stay in Barbados truly a home away rom home. The crib sheet she gave us made our navigation through customs, what to pay for taxi fares, car rentals as well as the money exchange rate and touring the city a breeze.

We rented a car from Esses Car Rentals, the owner brought the car to the condo for us and he was extremely polite. We mainly used the car for touring the island which was cheaper than a guided tour. We also attended the Fish Fry at Oistins on Friday a "must" do on the island! The Bajans were eager to offer any assistance or explanations of their culture and things to do on the island. We caught some of the pre-Crop Over performances at Bridgetown that was suggested to us and it was amazing! Ricardo, at the condo was also very helpful in answering questions, attending to our needs in the unit and exchanging money for us.

We would definitely stay at the St. Lawrence Beach Condos again. Thanks again Jane.

Car: not necessary


The south coast of Barbados is known for its beautiful white beaches, the famous Oistins Fish Fry on Friday nights, and its friendly vibe where you'll find locals (called Bajans) and tourists alike.

The St. Lawrence Gap ("gap" means "street") is the area on the south coast that is a favorite destination for both locals and tourists. Lots of quaint small businesses, delicious restaurants, colorful shops, and more—all within walking distance of your condo. A car is not necessary; a taxi to and from the airport is likely all you’ll need.

We are experts on all things Barbados, so feel free to ask about the must-see places and activities to explore during your trip. I know your holiday time is limited—I will do everything I can to help you make the most of your stay on the Caribbean island that boasts the most repeat visitors, the island known as "The Jewel of the Caribbean."

Contact me today to learn more…or to book your dates in welcoming and beautiful Barbados.

Thanks for looking,

Jane Shattuck
